Description of Formula
Para-Shield contains key constituents that function synergistically to support the body's natural defense against and resistance to damaging stressors in our internal environment, while promoting healthy intestinal organism balance.*

Scientific studies have explored the herbs found in Para-Shield, and their specific effect on creating an internal environment that supports the growth of healthy microorganisms. Collectively the herbs in Para-Shield work by encouraging the natural and normal release of select chemicals that the body uses to support intestinal health, while optimizing digestive functions to remove them from the body.*

Wormwood absinthium contains compounds that support the body's natural resistance to microscopic challenges from the environment. Specifically, it contains essential oil, absinthin, anabsinthin, resins, and organic acids that help to support a healthy microbial environment in the intestines and throughout the body.*

Black Walnut Green Hulls promote natural and healthy intestinal microorganisms. Providing a broad-spectrum of support for healthy microorganism balance, black walnut green hulls maintain the health of lymphatic fluid and blood, and organs including the liver, heart, brain and intestinal tract.*

Wormwood annua has been revered throughout China for thousands of years for its ability to support the natural removal of unwelcome organisms housed in the body. Wormwood annua is an important source of artemisinin and its derivatives. Artemisinin reacts with iron which is released by hemoglobin, creating free radicals which in turn, support a healthy microbial environment by targeting certain proteins. They also support the healthy function of white blood cells, particularly those that promote and protect blood.*

Chinese Coptis is an important source of the plant alkaloid, berberine, recognized for it beneficial actions of maintaining broadspectrum microbial balance throughout the intestinal tract.*

Pommegranate Seed contains a significant quantity of punicic acid which is a fatty acid that is structurally similar to conjugated linolenic acid and is recognized for its actions in supporting healthy cellular metabolism and offering potent immune protection. It is also rich in polyphenols and other fatty acids, including palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, and linoleic acid. These compounds maintain and support healthy immune function and provide antioxidant protection against the damaging effects of toxins and other stressors released by opportunistic organisms in the body.*

Clove Oil complements the herbs in this formula by promoting immune and gastrointestinal health. *

Gentian root is a digestive bitter that supports gastrointestinal health and liver function.*

Ginger rhizome is a powerful botanical promoter of healthy prostaglandin and thromboxane activity; compounds associated with immune function. Further, this highly valued herb promotes healthy circulation and digestion, and a proper response to environmental stress.*
