is a dietary supplement from Just In Health that supplies a proprietary combination of herbal products as well as herbal components, which function together to support healthy GI function. Spices, herbs and botanical preparations often reveal antimicrobial properties due to a wide array of terpenoid and polyphenolic compounds. Culinary herbs have been used for a long time to control pests and food-borne molds and yeasts in the context of food safety. Thyme, for example, is a scented oil enriched in monoterpenes. The thymol part of the thyme oil can be 30-70%, while the carvacrol content ranges between three and fifteen percent. Both of these compounds possess antiviral and antimicrobial properties. *
Artemisia, A culinary herb yielding a characteristic aromatic oil that showed antagonistic activity toward the growth of E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphyloccocus aureus, Streptococcus faecalis and Yersinia in vitro. In addition, extracts of tarragon inhibit antioxidant properties.
Urtica dioica (Stinging Nettle Extract). Urtica dioica, often called common nettle, stinging nettle or nettle leaf, is native to Europe, Asia, northern Africa, and western North America. Urtica dioica was studied on 16 skin and wound infections and was found to possess qualities to promote healing and bacterial homeostasis. In another interesting study, the extract from Urtica dioica demonstrated antagonistic activity toward specific biofilm production in Escherichia coli.
Tinaspora cordifolia (Guduchi). This herb has been used traditionally in India. It contains bitter substances, giloin (a glycoside), gilenin, gilosterol and tinosporine. Ethanol extracts of T. cordifolia, in combination with several other herbs, had a minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 1 mg/ml when tested in vitro against Entamoeba histolytica.
Equisetum arvense (Horsetail). In addition to a high percentage of silicates, horsetail contains a variety of polyphenols, such as agigenin and luteolin glycosides. This herb also contains quercetin, and more unusual polyphenolics, such as genkwanin and progenkwanin glycosides. Horsetail also contains sterols, such as beta sitosterol and campestrol, as primary sterol constituents. The antimicrobial activity of horsetail extracts has been reported to stimulate flow through the ureters and they have been used as a component of herbal teas and herbal mixtures.
Olea europaea (Olive leaf). Various flavonoids and their glycosides have been isolated from olives and olive leaves, such as apigenin, luteolin, rutin and quercetin. Oleuropein, a bitter principle of olives, is a glucoside and phenolic ester of elenolate, which is a multifunctional monoterpene. In vitro studies demonstrated that elenolate possesses antiviral properties. Furthermore, olive phenolic compounds inhibited the growth of spore-forming bacteria and Staphylococcus aureus. Isolated flavonoids from olives, as well as olive extracts, inhibited the classical complement pathway assayed by the hemolysis of erythrocytes. Therefore, olive polyphenols may help balance inflammatory mechanisms.
