Alleviates any general fluids dyscrasia (abnormal or pathological condition) within the blood vessels or musculature that leads to the onset of degenerative or debilitative conditions associated with various forms of anemia or anemic disorders (including aplastic, cerebral, hypochromic, nutritional, pernicious or sickle cell), and eliminates any form of cachexia (state of malnourishment and general debility) throughout the blood vessels and musculature; displays significant antioxidant effects in order to enhance the transport of additional oxygen directly into the cells and tissue-systems throughout the blood vessels (due to lowered hemoglobin levels in the blood), and removes any chronic fatigue or exhaustion associated with various form of anemia or anemic conditions throughout the blood vessels, tissue-systems, or musculature; relieves any adrenal insufficiency accompanied by fatigue, exhaustion, general debility or anemic conditions, and reduces any cerebral anemia by increasing capillary circulation throughout the brain tissues; eases any hypochromic anemia by increasing red cell hemoglobin, and stimulates the blood-producing organs in order to increase the formation of blood and plasma; eliminates any impaired circulation associated with coldness in the extremities, and activates the Kupffer cells in the liver in order to remove various toxins or other toxic debris from the portal circulation;

exhibits bacteriostatic, microbicidal and viricidal 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); 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 muscle or connective tissues 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 (especially the blood vessels and musculature), and exhibits circulatory stimulant activity 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 and muscle tissues; 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 or musculature; displays cell proliferant activity in order to inhibit the normal aging process within the blood vessels or muscles, thereby extending the overall lifespan of the various cells and tissue-systems throughout the entire organism; 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 blood vessels, musculature, immune system, and both the central (cerebro-spinal centers) and peripheral nervous systems; 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 muscles or connective tissues throughout the entire organism; 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 blood vessels and musculature; acts as a circulatory stimulant by increasing the blood flows through the arteries and blood vessels of the muscles in order to enhance greater nutrient transport, absorption and utilization, thereby accelerating the healing processes associated with the repair of any damaged blood vessels or tissue-systems throughout the entire musculature; acts as an effective nutritive and rejuvenative tonic to the blood vessels muscles during convalescence (due to the presence of rich sources of biotin, carbohydrates (such as fructose, glucose, maltose, pectin, sucrose, and low molecular weight starches), choline, chromium, copper, manganese, pantothenic acid, potassium, protein, sulfur, and vitamins B1, B2, and E) in order to enrich, nourish and replenish any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency within the cells or tissues throughout the entire body, which leads to the development of various degenerative or atonic conditions associated with anemia;

accelerates the recuperative processes that are essential in order to overcome any chronic degenerative or debilitative illnesses, while facilitating greater recovery response during convalescence in order to fully regain optimal health and well-being; activates the bodily processes of detoxification and elimination in order to cleanse and purify the bloodstream, tissue-systems and musculature, and increases both sensible and insensible perspiration in order to more effectively enhance the eliminative capabilities of the body; acts as an eliminative vasotonic to the blood, liver and splenic functions, as well as upon the eliminative functions of the lymphatic system; enhances the overall cleansing process by dilating the surface capillaries in order to more effectively remove any toxic debris or metabolic waste materials 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;
