Adaptogenic, alterative, anabolic, anti-cachexic, anti-dyscratic, anti-fatigue, antioxidant, anti-plethoric, choleretic, cholagogue, depurative, detoxicant, diuretic, mild laxative, nervine, nutritive, rejuvenative, restorative, stimulant (circulatory, hepatic and secretolytic), stomachic and 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; displays anti-plethoric activity, thereby relieving any portal congestion or venous blood stagnation; acts as a powerful blood purifier in order to cleanse the bloodstream of various toxic residues or drug deposits, and demonstrates significant nervine activity in conditions involving neurasthenia (nervous exhaustion); removes any chronic fatigue or exhaustion associated with various degenerative or debilitative conditions, due to various addictive behavioral patterns or substance abuse problems; strengthens any weakened arteries, and removes any form of anemia accompanied by chronic fatigue (due to deficiencies of nutritive salts in the blood); acts as a stomachic tonic and replacement for various alcoholic stimulants during any conditions involving atonic dyspepsia (accompanied by dipsomania), while removing any cravings for alcoholic beverages and other addictive chemical drugs or narcotics; displays volatile and bitter principles, which activate the production of mucus in order to sequester and eliminate various chemical or drug deposits and related toxicity (toxic accumulations) from specific dysfunctional organs (especially the liver and spleen) or bodily tissues; exhibits choleretic and cholagogue properties in order to eliminate any liver or gall bladder stasis (stagnation), and removes any sluggish liver conditions while cleansing the liver and gall bladder; enhances the functional capabilities throughout the entire glandular system, especially the liver, pancreas and spleen; strengthens, invigorates and revitalizes the mucous membranes and tissue-systems throughout the entire organism (due to the presence of rich sources of vitamin A), and provides increased strength, energy and vitality (due to the presence of various natural sugar compounds); 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; acts as an effective nutritive and rejuvenative tonic during convalescence (due to the presence of rich sources of calcium, carbohydrates, chromium, fats, iron, magnesium, manganese, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, protein, silicon, sodium, zinc, and vitamins A, B12 and C) in order to enrich, nourish and replenish any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency within the cells or tissues throughout the blood vessels or mucous membranes, which leads to the development of various degenerative conditions associated with various addictive behavioral patterns or excessive substance abuse; 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; activates the bodily processes of detoxification and elimination, and increases both sensible and insensible perspiration in order to more effectively enhance the eliminative capabilities of the body; enhances the overall cleansing process by dilating the surface capillaries in order to more effectively remove any toxic debris or chemical residues through the pores of the skin, 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.
