    Since we’re talking all about detoxification this month, let’s take a closer look at this benefit.

    Adults with a high risk of Liver cancer or Hepatitis B were given 100 milligrams of Chlorophyllin or placebo three times daily.

    After 16 weeks Aflatoxin-B1 (A1B1) levels dropped 55% more in the Chlorophyllin group than the placebo group.

    Elderberry and The Immune System 

    The flowers and berries of the plant also have a diaphoretic action; helping the  immune system to mount an optimal fever response to efficiently kill pathogens that  are susceptible to the heat. At a microscopic level, elderberry promotes a healthy  immune response against viruses by increasing the number of inflammatory  molecules called cytokines. Cytokines can cause local and systemic inflammation; encouraging immune cells to  the area to help clear infection.

    Two proven botanicals that do the job. These days, pain and inflammation frequently keep us from comfortably performing everyday activities.

I try to lift the heaviest weights possible, have competed in bodybuilding shows and powerlifting meets and also do heavy physical labour.

    Ouch, those aching joints!

    We often don’t fully realize the amount of work our joints do and the amount of flexibility and function they provide until they start to ache. Two of the major causes of joint pain are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.

    It is also known as degenerative joint disease. It is more common in people as they age. Some studies have shown that up to 80% of people over the age of 50 have osteoarthritis.
    The weight-bearing joints of the hands and feet are the ones most often affected. Within the joint, cartilage may be extensively destroyed, followed by cartilage hardening and the formation of large bone spurs. As the gel-like cartilage is lost, so, too, is the protection for the joints reduced. The person may then experience pain, inflammation, deformity, and diminished
