Artemisia, which contains artemisinin, has been used traditionally for thousands of years to promote healthy microbial balance within the body. Oregano oil powder offers antioxidant and microbial-balancing properties. In vitro and animal research suggests that oregano oil and clove can diffuse through microbial cell membranes, promoting membrane permeability. Berberine sulfate is a highly concentrated microbial-balancing compound. Olive leaf extract contains the active constituent oleuropein, a phenolic glucoside that helps maintain healthy G.I. microorganism balance and may help support immune function.‡

Dr. W's Comments: This is a great product when you feel your intestines may have been invaded by something that is causing “dysbiosis”, the term used to describe a breakdown in healthy intestinal flora. Perhaps the addition of some fermented foods and even one of our probiotics, you should be able to renew your colon.

Some time-honored herbals like black walnut hull and Artemisia are included. They work to eliminate parasites in the body like worms as well as just helping to normalize the intestines. Like the other components of the support, cloves and olive leaf, they are filled with a wide assortment of bioflavonoids, tannins, essential oils and bitter principles that we do well to draw upon regularly. Olive leaf, though going back to the Egyptians has been researched quite a bit lately for fighting viruses – cold, HIV, flu – it appears very useful to stop virus replication. It has also been shown to be very good for the cardiovascular system – another great support to take for a while at a time. Clove bud powder has been shown to act against certain infectious agents, flatulence and nausea.
