The following is excerpted from The Professional's Herbal Formula Handbook No. 3, comprising 62 pages of traditional information and recent scientific data that describes the medical properties, physiological action and therapeutic uses for each of the 24 ingredients outlined in this formula.


Adaptogenic, alterative, anabolic, anti-cachexic, anti-dyscratic, anti-fatigue, antioxidant, calmative, depurative, detoxicant, diuretic, immuno-potentiating, immuno-stimulant, nervine, rejuvenative, relaxant, restorative, mild sedative, stimulant (circulatory and secretolytic) and nerve tonic.



Alleviates any general fluids dyscrasia (abnormal or pathological condition) within the blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes that leads to various degenerative conditions associated with any addictive tendencies towards alcohol, caffeine, chemicals, drugs or food, 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 associated with the excessive use of synthetic chemicals, recreational drugs or alcoholic beverages; relieves any mental exhaustion, general nerve irritation, neurasthenia, and nervous prostration or debility while displaying mild tonifying effects upon the nervous system in order to improve the organism's overall responses towards various forms of stimuli; removes any chronic fatigue or exhaustion associated with various degenerative or debilitative conditions, due to various addictive behavioral patterns or substance abuse problems; acts as a mild sedative and tonic to the nerve-centers in order to improve their overall tonicity, while promoting increased capillary circulation to the brain; promotes greater defensive mechanisms against various types of stressful conditions, and demonstrates adaptogenic properties in order to reduce any stress-induced damage by directly influencing the higher nerve-centers; activates the release of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and various other pituitary substances (such as endorphins, enkephalins, and beta-lipoprotein), which bind themselves directly to brain tissue in order to increase the mental capabilities during any stressful conditions; acts directly upon the peripheral site of the stress mechanism (the adrenal glands) by facilitating a more efficient and regulated output of adrenaline in order to mobilize the body's reserves, and encourages a more accelerated response of the stress hormone (adrenaline) and a more rapid return to normality; 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 blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism; activates the Kupffer cells in the liver in order to filter any toxins or drug residues from the portal circulation, and protects the liver against any damage caused by alcohol, narcotics and other toxic chemicals (such as caffeine, synthetic drugs or food additives); 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 upon the endocrine glands, immune system, and both the central and peripheral nervous systems, thereby increasing non-specific resistance towards any adverse influences or stressful conditions associated with the excessive abuse of various addictive substances (such as alcohol, caffeine, synthetic drugs, narcotics and other toxic chemicals); 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 flows through the arteries and blood vessels in order to enhance greater nutrient transport, absorption and utilization, thereby accelerating the healing processes associated with the repair of any damaged mucous membranes or tissue-systems; 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 debilitating or degenerative diseases or illnesses, while facilitating greater recovery response during convalescence in order to regain optimal health and well-being; 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.
