Ingredients

Amla (Phyllanthus emblica) fruit

Phyllanthus (otherwise known as Indian gooseberry or amla) is a vital herb traditionally used in unani (Graceo – arab) and ayurvedic systems of medicine. The herb is used both to promote vitality and vigor. Phyllanthus emblica is highly nutritious and is an important dietary source of various important nutrients, such as Vitamin C. The plant also contains phenolic compounds, all of which are of vital importance to human health.[v]

The fruit has been used in Ayurveda as a potent rasayana and may help promote a healthy gut.[vi]

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) root

Turmeric is an herb with an extremely long history of medicinal use, dating back around 4000 years. In Asia, turmeric is used not only as a principal spice but also as a component in many religious ceremonies. Modern medicine has begun to recognize its importance, as indicated by the over 3000 publications dealing with turmeric that has been published within the last 25 years.[vii]

Curcumin is the main natural polyphenol found in the rhizome of Curcuma longa (turmeric) and in others Curcuma spp. Curcuma longa has been traditionally used in Asian countries as a medical herb due to its antioxidant , properties and ability to support the body’s healthy inflammatory response.[viii][ix]

Indian Frankincense (Boswellia serrata) oleoresin

Boswellia serrata is certainly one of the most valued herbs in Ayurveda. History has shown us that elephants enjoy this herb as a part of their natural diet. Three renowned ancient texts form the pillars of classical Ayurvedic Science, which has its roots in India: Charaka’s Charaka Samhita (c.B.C. 700), possibly the first fundamental medical text in existence.[x]

Gum-resin extracts of Boswellia serrata have been traditionally used in folk medicine for centuries to treat various conditions.[xi]

Animal studies have found that Boswellia has been shown to promote healthy levels of blood markers of oxidative stress.[xii] Human studies have also found a beneficial effect on the function of the body’s natural inflammatory response.[xiii]

Myrrh (Commiphora myrrh)

Myrrh has a long history of use for multiple conditions to supports healthy immune function.[xiv]

Chinese wormwood (Artemisia annua) leaf

Artemisia is used throughout Asia and Africa to help promote a healthy immune system function.[xv]

Resilience may be of benefit for individuals who want to:

  • Support overall wellness
  • Maintain healthy immune function
  • Promote healthy levels of oxidative stress
  • Supplement with antioxidants.
