This powerful anti-yeast formula contains herbal extracts that have natural antibiotic properties which fight against candida, fungus, bacteria and virus invasion. CANSTAT™ is designed to work with ACIDOPHILUS & HELPERS™ to combat all infections and build strong immune systems.
CANSTAT™ contains herbs and nutrients traditionally believed to enhance the immune systems ability to fight fungus and yeast growth commonly known as candida albicans. Many researchers now believe that the body is able to throw off most invading bacteria, viruses, fungus and yeast overgrowth when the immune system is healthy and intact. The combination contains ingredients like garlic, cranberries, horseradish, prunes, Chinese cinnamon and Pau DArco which have historically been thought to contain certain natural biochemicals that act to fight the growth of fungus andyeast. CANSTATTM also contains other nutrients such as vitamin A, zinc, biotin, vitamin B6, and selenium which are reputed to act as immune strengthening factors as well as coenzymes.
CANSTAT™ contains Odorless Garlic, Echinacea, Cranberry, Horseradish, Prune, Chinese Cinnamon, Pau DArco, Vitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin B6, Biotin and Selenium. Now, lets look at these ingredients in detail! ODORLESS GARLIC (Allium sativum) contains all of the potency of fresh garlic without the offensive odor. Garlic is said to contain several complex sulfur compounds which have traditionally been used to fight fungus infection. Garlic is also said to act as an alternative or blood purifierand helps promote the growth of infection fighting white blood cells.
ECHINACEA (Echinacea, various species) is one of the most famous immune stimulating herbs long used by the traditional herbalist wherever infection or decay were present. Several recent studies have reinforced echinaceas positive role in helping the immune system fight off illness producing organisms.
CRANBERRIES (Vaccinium oxycoccus) have been used to fight urinary infection. They contain hippuric acid which passes from the body as an acid, thereby helping to maintain the normal germ fighting acidity of the urinary tract. Cranberry juice is considered useful in cystitis or bladder infection. Cranberries are high in benzoic acid, a natural anti-fungal substance.
HORSERADISH ROOT (Armoracia lapathifolia) is considered to be one of the most powerful stimulant herbs, especially influencing the kidneys, skin and circulation. It was
considered useful for bladder infection and helps increase the flow of urine. Horseradish, although a common spice, is a very powerful herb and should not be used in excess.
CAUTIONARY NOTE: IT SHOULD BE AVOIDED BY PREGNANT WOMEN, WHEN DIARRHEA AND NIGHT SWEATING ARE PRESENT AND BECAUSE IT CONTAINS PEROXIDASE. IT SHOULD BE AVOIDED THREE DAYS PRIOR TO TESTING FOR OCCULT BLOOD IN THE STOOL.
PRUNES (Prunus domestica), made from the plum fruit, are considered a natural laxative and cooling agent. Like cranberries, they contain the natural anti-microbial, anti-fungus substance benzoic acid.
CHINESE CINNAMON (Cinnamomum cassia) possesses natural anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
PAU DARCO is from the inner bark of certain species of highly fungus resistant trees growing in South America. Many nutritionally oriented physicians have recently used Pau DArco to treat candida (yeast infection).
VITAMIN A: 5000 I.U. from plant beta carotene is a non-toxic form of this vitamin which functions as an anti-oxidant preventing bodily fats from becoming damaged by oxygen. Vitamin A is known as an anti-infection vitamin and is necessary for the health of the immune system as well as the mucous membrane linings of the urinary, respiratory and digestive tracts. ZINC: 12 mg is believed to stimulate the growth of the immune.-related thymus gland as well as participate in forming part of the bodys important anti-oxidant enzyme S.O.D. (superoxide dismutase).
VITAMIN B6: 6 mg. is essential to our utilization of zinc as proteins. Amino acids derived from proteins are necessary for the health and integrity of the immune system. Stress as well as the use of birth control pills may elevate the need for vitamin B6.
BIOTIN: 300 mcg. is an important sulfur containing B vitamin normally produced by our intestinal bacteria which often become depleted from use of antibiotics, birth control pills and other drugs. Biotin is involved in the intestinal synthesis of fatty acids which play an important role in the immune system. Several nutritionally oriented physicians now use biotin in their candida (yeast) control programs.
SELENIUM: 120 mcg. is another important anti-oxidant that forms part of the bodys important anti-oxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase.
