Alleviates any general fluids dyscrasia (abnormal or pathological condition) within the arteries, blood vessels or capillaries throughout the circulatory system that leads to the onset of various degenerative or debilitative conditions associated with any blood disorders or blood impurities involving the presence or persistence of various pathogenic bacteria or microorganisms and their toxins in the blood (sepsis) or the retention of excessive by-products of protein metabolism in the blood that leads to various toxic conditions (uremia), and eliminates any form of cachexia (state of malnourishment and general debility) within the arterial, venous or capillary system while removing any chronic fatigue or exhaustion associated with excessive accumulations of toxic waste materials throughout the bloodstream and tissue-systems; removes any chronic blood stasis (diminution of the flow of blood or other bodily fluids) throughout the liver, spleen, uterus, abdomen and portal system, and eliminates any blood poisoning (sepsis) conditions; eliminates any protoplasmic poisons or lymphatic congestion caused by excessive accumulations of toxic waste materials, as well as any general debility or exhaustion associated with chronic systemal toxicity; exhibits diuretic effects (due to the presence of tannins and the flavonoids galuteolin, gossypitrin, herbacetrin, isoquercetrin, kaempferol and luteolin) in order to relieve any heart disorders associated with a deficiency in normal blood circulation (circulatory insufficiency); removes any blood in the urine associated with various urinary tract infections, as well as any anemia or general debility associated with internal hemorrhaging by promoting increased blood coagulation activity; exhibits cytophylactic and cytotoxic activity in order to provide stronger cellular defense mechanisms against many physical or chemical agents, and displays anti-infective and disinfectant properties in order to promote increased resistance by destroying any invasive or harmful pathogenic bacteria, microbes or viruses that are often responsible for various infectious states or inflammatory conditions; exhibits bacteriostatic and microbicidal activity in order to strengthen and increase the resistance of the arteries, blood vessels and capillaries against any invasive or harmful bacteria or microbes, as well as to inhibit the further development of any infectious or inflammatory conditions associated with the onset of sepsis, septicemia or uremia; demonstrates significant antiphlogistic effects in order to inhibit the formation of certain inflammatory compounds (such as histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandin, serine proteases and thromboxanes), as well as to reduce any severe inflammatory swelling associated with sepsis, septicemia or uremia by exerting an extremely positive influence towards correcting any internal inflammatory conditions within the arteries, blood vessels or capillaries; exhibits significant antiseptic activity by destroying the vitality of any organized living ferments in order to prevent the onset of putrefaction or septicemia, and precipitates the proteins in any inflamed tissues in order to provide a mildly antiseptic and protective coating (under which the regeneration of new tissue occurs) for the arteries, blood vessels and capillaries throughout the entire organism; acts as an effective antiseptic in order to remove any septic conditions associated with tissue degeneration or ulceration, and promotes increased suppuration and a steady toning or restorative impression to the entire glandular system (especially the liver, spleen and lymph glands); exhibits anabolic activity in order to accelerate the production of DNA and RNA (which enhances the production of proteins in the form of antibodies), while increasing protein and lipid synthesis in the bone marrow and DNA and RNA content in the adrenals and lymph nodes (along with increased body weight and enhanced re-synthesis of glycogen and high-energy phosphate compounds); demonstrates powerful adaptogenic (balancing and strengthening) properties in order to increase the overall resistance of an organism towards any adverse influences or stressful conditions (whether they be physical, chemical or biological in nature), especially throughout the arteries, blood vessels, capillaries and the entire circulatory system; acts as a secretolytic stimulant in order to promote increased gastric, pancreatic or intestinal secretory and motor activity, and enhances greater peripheral circulation (due to its antioxidant activity); exhibits significant antioxidant effects in order to provide greater oxygen-transport capabilities throughout the bloodstream, as well as enhance the transport of additional oxygen directly into the cells and tissue-systems throughout the arteries, blood vessels, capillaries and the entire circulatory system; acts as a circulatory stimulant by increasing the blood flows throughout the circulatory system in order to enhance greater nutrient transport, absorption and utilization, thereby accelerating the healing processes associated with the repair of any damaged arteries, blood vessels or capillaries throughout the entire organism; improves the overall blood circulation (due to the presence of silicic acid), and displays preventative activity against any hardening of the arteries or amnesia by means of its blood-cleansing effects; acts as an effective nutritive and rejuvenative tonic to the arteries, blood vessels or capillaries during convalescence (due to the presence of rich sources of calcium, carbohydrates, chromium, cobalt, copper, fats, fluorine, iron, magnesium, manganese, PABA, phosphorus, potassium, protein, selenium, silicon, sodium, and vitamins A, B2 and C) in order to enrich, nourish and replenish any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency within the arteries, blood vessels or capillaries, which leads to the development of various degenerative or debilitative conditions throughout the entire circulatory system; demonstrates significant rejuvenative and restorative properties upon the basic plasma tissue-systems throughout the entire organism, thereby enhancing the production of vital bodily fluids while providing greater enrichment through increased assimilation of the various organic mineral salts; accelerates the recuperative processes that are essential in order to overcome any chronic degenerative or debilitative diseases or illnesses, while facilitating greater recovery response during convalescence in order to fully regain optimal health and well-being; exhibits immuno-potentiating and immuno-stimulatory effects in order to enhance greater long-term immune potential and overall non-specific systemic immunity (or immune cell activity) and increased immune response (by activating the body's natural defense mechanisms), particularly in relation to the repair and restoration of any damaged or congested arteries, blood vessels or capillaries throughout the circulatory system; displays astringent properties (due to the presence of tannins) in order to strengthen the functional capabilities of the spleen, thereby maintaining proper blood supply throughout the arteries, blood vessels and capillaries; reduces any excessive blood pressure conditions, elevates the white blood cell count, and invigorates the kidneys; displays diaphoretic and diuretic activity by promoting increased diaphoresis and diuresis in order to more efficiently expel any excessive accumulations of various toxic waste materials, and activates the bodily processes of detoxification and elimination in order to cleanse and purify the bloodstream and tissue-systems; increases both sensible and insensible perspiration in order to more effectively enhance the eliminative capabilities of the body, and increases the secretion and elimination of urine in order to provide further support to the inner cleansing process; displays alterative activity in order to correct any disordered bodily function, thereby activating increased alterations in both metabolic and tissue functions as a defensive measure against the onset of acute or chronic disease; exhibits restorative effects in order to regain increased vigor or vitality and greater strength, while enhancing normal tissue and metabolic functional capabilities; demonstrates alterative and restorative properties in order to re-establish healthy systemic functional capabilities, as well as to establish greater vascular tone throughout the entire organism (due to its ability to stimulate increased secretory flows); exhibits alterative effects in order to stimulate the anabolic growth processes, thereby enhancing the repair of any degenerated, deteriorated and debilitated cells or tissues (while promoting the elimination of any catabolic waste materials); displays tonifying effects in order to permanently enhance the overall energy-levels throughout the entire organism, without adversely affecting the functional capabilities of any particular organ or system.
