Alleviates any general fluids dyscrasia (abnormal or pathological condition) within the blood vessels, tissue-systems and mucous membranes throughout the entire organism during the onset of any immuno-depressant or immuno-suppressant conditions, and eliminates any form of cachexia (state of malnourishment and general debility) within the blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism in order to provide increased protection against any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency that leads to various forms of immuno-depression or immuno-suppression; 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 blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism; displays immuno-stimulatory effects upon the immune system by increasing the production of antibodies in the bone marrow, and enhances the natural immunity of the organism by strengthening and tonifying a deficient immune system; promotes greater phagocytosis and increased antibody production, due to the presence of triterpenoid saponins, ginsenocides and a polysaccharide; possesses direct macrophage-enhancing capabilities, as well as similar direct white blood cell-enhancing effects as outlined below (see Echinacea Root); provides greater supportive activity to the immune functions, especially during radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatments; displays cytophylactic and cytotoxic activity in order to provide greater resistance (in the form of various defensive mechanisms) towards the adverse effects of toxic or poisonous chemicals, harmful pathogenic bacteria and foreign sera, and demonstrates adaptogenic effects upon the cardiovascular, metabolic, endocrine, immune and gastro-intestinal systems; exhibits cytotoxic and cytophylactic properties in order to provide stronger cellular defense mechanisms against many physical or chemical agents and infectious conditions, including various brain, skin or intestinal infections; exhibits bacteriostatic, microbicidal and viricidal activity in order to strengthen and increase the resistance of the blood vessels against any invasive or harmful pathogenic bacteria or microbes, as well as to inhibit the further development of any inflammatory or infectious conditions associated with the onset of various infectious auto-immune disorders; displays significant antiphlogistic activity 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 any blood vessel or tissue inflammation and various other internal inflammatory conditions; 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 mucous membranes 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); provides both restorative and adaptogenic activity upon the gastric, hepatic and renal functions, while stimulating and strengthening the body's own defense mechanisms in order to ward off disease; acts upon the peripheral site of the stress mechanism (the adrenal glands) as opposed to a more central cerebral location (hypothalmic or pituitary activity), which facilitates a more efficient and regulated output of adrenaline in order to mobilize the body's reserves; encourages greater response from the stress-related hormone (adrenaline) and a more rapid return to normality, while activating the release of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and various other pituitary substances (such as beta-lipoprotein, endorphins and enkephalins); demonstrates antioxidant properties in order to reduce the number of free radicals that cause harmful damage or reactions to the DNA and RNA, as well as to various enzymes or cellular membranes; acts as a biocatalyst in order to directly affect the expenditure of energy stored in muscle ATP, thereby allowing for increased weight gain and improved skeletal muscle tone; displays biocatalytic activity in order to enhance greater assimilation of those essential nutrients that are necessary for the increased production of energy and vitality, thereby accelerating certain rejuvenative processes associated with the repair of any damaged blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism; acts as a biocatalyst in order to accelerate and accentuate the transport of all the other herbal ingredients throughout the entire organism to specific areas of the body, and acts as a circulatory stimulant in order to permeate the entire organism (both internally and externally) with greater warmth and movement by supporting the innate warmth that resides in the blood; encourages the proper elimination of toxic waste materials during the treatment of various auto-immune system disorders, and activates the Kupffer cells in the liver in order to filter any toxins or other debris from the portal circulation; eliminates any stress-induced damage by directly influencing the higher nerve-centers, and possesses organic radioactive rays in order to stimulate the vital processes in the cellular tissue; removes any chronic fatigue or exhaustion, due to various degenerative or debilitative states throughout the entire organism; acts as a cell proliferant in order to stimulate increased cellular mitosis (cell division and reproduction) in an adequate nutritional environment, as well as to accelerate the healing processes by promoting increased granulation and greater resolution during the repair of any damaged blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes; displays cell proliferant activity in order to inhibit the normal aging process throughout the entire organism, thereby extending the overall lifespan of the various cells and tissue-systems; 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/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) activity 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 upon the immune system and both the central (cerebro-spinal centers) and peripheral nervous systems; 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 entire organism; acts as a circulatory stimulant by increasing the blood circulation in order to enhance greater nutrient transport, absorption and utilization, thereby accelerating the healing processes associated with the repair of any damaged blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes; acts as an effective nutritive and rejuvenative tonic during convalescence (due to the presence of rich sources of carbohydrates, chromium, manganese, potassium, protein, and vitamins B1 and B2) in order to enrich, nourish and replenish any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency within the cells or tissue-systems, which leads to the development of various degenerative conditions associated with immuno-depression or immuno-suppression; 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; 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 or 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.
