Capillary electrophoresis, high-pressure liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, and thin-layer chromatography provide detailed compositional analysis at the molecular level. Processing and Potency Once the herbs have passed inspection, they are processed according to tradition to maximize potency and eliminate undesired effects. Raw herbs may be steamed, baked, alcohol-soaked or ginger-processed. The selection of each herb is double-checked and quantities are weighed twice so that formulas are uniform from batch to batch.

Benefits Traditional Chinese Medicine Functions: Disperses stagnant Qi Purges gallbladder heat Intestinal Astringent Aloe 22 treats intestinal parasites and other intestinal diseases. The formula balances dispersing, eliminative forces with contracting and building forces, thus it is useful for a broad range of applications. The black walnut (juglans nigra), is a native tree of North America. Black walnuts are smaller, harder, and more pungent than the English walnuts sold in grocery stores. The hulls without the meaty kernels inside are used in herbal medicine. Black walnut trees exude a sap that discourages growth of competing plants over their roots. Black walnut hulls contain juglone, a chemical that is antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic, and a fungicide. The hulls also contain tannins, iodine, vitamin C and zinc. Tannins act as a defense mechanism in plants against pathogens. The antihelmintic properties of tannins have been shown in scientific studies. Tannins are described to be antibacterial, and anti-diarrheic. Iodine is widely used as an antiseptic in medicine. It works by attaching itself to the pathogenic bacteria and thereby killing them. Cardamom (sha ren) treats abdominal pain and distension, and relieves intestinal spasms. It controls diarrhea caused by infection, but also treats constipation due to weak intestinal function. Astringent herbs such as mume (wu mei), terminalia (he zi), pomegranate (shi liu pi), nutmeg (rou dou kou), rubia (qian cao gen) treat diarrhea caused by infections, regulate intestinal secretions, and treat ulcers of the intestinal mucosa. Anthelmintics such as quisqualis (shi jun zi), omphalia (lei wan), torreya (fei zi), ulmus (wu yi), zanthoxylum (chuan jiao), and aloe vera (luhui) attack parasites in the bowels. Qi tonics such as codonopsis (dang shen), white atractylodes (bai zhu), and licorice (gan cao), and digestive herbs such as ginger (gan jiang) enhance immunityand improve absorption of nutrients. Use 1 to 3 tablets, three times a day

Health Concerns Serramend™ $47.90
Serratiopeptidase Dietary Supplement  Has an anti-inflammatory effect  Treats chronic lung, and ear, nose and throat disorders  Digests scar tissue and speeds healing response  Addresses sinusitis, sprains, strains, edema, postoperative inflammation, carpal tunnel syndrome, breast engorgement, (fibrocystic breast disease) venous inflammatory disease, asthma, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory pain conditions, leg ulcers, chronic headaches 180 Capsules Health Concerns Serramend – Product Description Serramend contains serratiopeptidase also known as serrapeptase; a naturally occurring proteolytic enzyme that has been used clinically in Europe and Asia for over thirty years. It has been well tested and shown efficacy for many conditions including traumatic injury, post operative inflammation, ear, nose and throat conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, breast engorgement, and venous disease. It has also been promoted for the treatment of inflammatory pain conditions and cardiovascular diseases. In patients with chronic airway disease treatment with 30mg per day of serrapeptase for four weeks resulted in changes in sputum. Coughing and expectoration frequency were significantly decreased. Serrapeptase has also been used to treat chronic sinusitis at a serving of 30mg per day for four weeks leading to reduced sputum viscosity and improved quality of life. In several treatment centers with 193 patients, suffering from inflammatory ear, nose and throat conditions, treatment was compared with a placebo for seven to eight days. Compared with placebo, serrapeptase produced a more rapid response researchers concluded that the enzyme treatment produced anti-edemic, and fibrinolytic activity. The same serving was used in a 174 patient study of clients having surgery to correct buccal membrane swelling, patients in the treatment group demonstrated significantly less swelling compared with the placebo group. Another surgical study showed a reduction in the amount of postoperative swelling. Patients who received serrapeptase experience a 50 percent decrease in swelling in the third day following ankle surgery. Patients treated with standard measures (leg elevation, bed rest, ice) had no reductions in swelling. In treating carpal tunnel syndrome, 10mg twice daily for six weeks, led to significant clinical improvement in 65 percent of the patients. Results were confirmed via nerve-conduction studies. In a group of seventy women with cystic breast disease, 85.7 percent of the patients taking the enzyme had moderate to marked improvement. Serrapeptase has also been clinically studied and shown effective for the treatment of chronic bronchitis and venous inflammatory disease, and improving the effects of the antibiotics ofloxacin, cephalexin, and cefotiam. A pioneer in complementary medicine, Hans Nieper, MD used serrapeptase extensively for occluded arteries particularly when surgeons were reluctant to operate. He reported that many of his patients have shown significant improved blood flow through their previously constricted arteries as confirmed by ultrasound. He typically used the enzyme for at least six months to eighteen months. Several research groups have reported that serrapeptase/serratiopeptidase (thereafter Serramend™) is well absorbed orally when using enterically coated capsules or capsules. It is processed in the laboratory, although initially it was found in the silkworm intestine. By dissolving the silkworm’s protective cocoon, the moth is ready to fly away. Ingredients Serratiopeptidase 20mg of serratiopeptidase per capsule (not less than 2,000 units per mg) derived from L Serratia E15 Suggested Use 1 capsule TID between meals Contraindications: Serramend is not recommended during pregnancy. Caution should be applied if patients are on anti-coagulant drugs such as Coumadin, or have gastrointestinal ulcers. Some individuals report diarrhea.

They hand select the finest wild picked or organically grown herbs whenever possible, paying close attention to species, region of cultivation, time of harvest, and the spirit in which plants are grown and collected. They use only the most potent part of the plant. They do not use herbs that are endangered, sprayed or fumigated. Laboratory Testing Trained herbalists evaluate the herbs for quality on the basis of smell, taste and appearance, as has been done for thousands of years. The amount of active components, strength, and efficacy are then verified by analysis. To screen for pesticides, heavy metals, sulfites, and bacterial contamination, samples are sent to independent labs, which use the latest technology. Capillary electrophoresis, high-pressure liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, and thin-layer chromatography provide detailed compositional analysis at the molecular level. Processing and Potency Once the herbs have passed inspection, they are processed according to tradition to maximize potency and eliminate undesired effects. Raw herbs may be steamed, baked, alcohol-soaked or ginger-processed. The selection of each herb is double-checked and quantities are weighed twice so that formulas are uniform from batch to batch. Herbs are granulated and cooked as a decoction to improve bio availability. Combining Components They devote meticulous attention to each individual component of a formula and then, of course, to how components work together. Roots are cooked over low temperature overnight. Flowers are prepared by infusion. Alkaloid-containing herbs are soaked in alcohol, and aromatic extracts are added last to preserve their volatile components. A small amount of acacia gum and cellulose are used to bind the ingredients together, while magnesium aids the tableting process. Tableting and Packaging Once the herbs are compressed into tablets, they are coated to ease swallowing and preserve freshness. To make sure they can be absorbed, their disintegration is timed. During the final stage of manufacturing, they are packaged into bottles, inner and outer safety seals are applied, and each bottle is stamped with a lot number and manufacture date.
