Sea Buckthorn Berries
Lactobacillus species in the gut microbiota have been found to block pro-inflammatory cytokines to inhibit harmful bacteria like Helicobacter pylori. While studying similar mechanisms against bladder inflammation (cystitis) causing E. coli, a team led by Professor Hana Yoon of Ewha Womans University Medical Center in Seoul, found abundant amounts of Lactobacillus gasseri present in the fermented extracts of sea buckthorn berries.
The probiotic has now been found to repress the activation of purine thereby preventing the SARS-CoV-2 from proliferating. Purine is an important compound required for nucleotide formation. Recent studies have found that the new coronavirus attacks purines in order to form its spike proteins and invade normal cells. The Korean team also found that the berries had several antioxidants, minerals, amino acids, and two other bacteria, Streptococcus thermophilus, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus that use the same binding site as that of SARS-CoV-2.
The COVID-19 pandemic is spreading around the globe at an alarming rate forcing scientists to scramble for critical information while simultaneously developing and testing potential treatments. Emerging studies suggest that the mutation rates of the SARS-CoV-2 virus observed in patients are similar to that of HIV and MERS-CoV. Therefore, countries like Korea are administering retroviral drugs such as Kaletra and anti-HIV drugs to COVID-19 patients with mixed results. Dr. Yoon believes that the probiotic L. gasseri could prove to be an effective supplement to COVID-19 treatments and the same mechanisms might be in use against bladder inflammation and hyperlipidemia.
Professor Goo-Bo Jeong of the Lee Gil Ya Cancer and Diabetes Institute, Gachon University, who participated in the study, said that L. gasseri is an effective agent not just against COVID-19 causing virus but also others such as Ebola, Hepatitis and AIDS whose proliferation and mutation rates rely on purine.
Sea Buckthorn is used as a source of vitamins, antioxidants, protein building blocks (amino acids), fatty acids and minerals; for improving blood pressure and lowering cholesterol; preventing and controlling blood vessel diseases; and supporting immunity.

2016 meta-analysis found tentative evidence that use of Echinacea extracts reduced the risk of repeated respiratory infections. A 2015 monograph by the European Medicines Agency stated that oral consumption of “expressed juice” or dried expressed juice of Echinacea could prevent or reduce symptoms of a common cold at its onset.
Echinacea has a complex mix of active substances, some of which are said to be antimicrobial, while others are believed to have an effect on the human immune system.
Today, Echinacea is used widely all over the world for a range of illnesses, infections, and conditions. Below is a list of some of these uses.
chronic fatigue syndrome
septicemia – bloodstream infection
urinary tract infection
vaginal yeast infection
Pineapples are tropical fruits that are rich in vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants. They may help with the immune system, build strong bones and aid indigestion. And, despite their sweetness, pineapples are low in calories.
Pineapple is chockfull of several benefits due to its nutrient content. It contains bromelain, protein, carbohydrates, sugar, and soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Minerals like potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, sodium, and magnesium are also found in pineapples. These tropical fruits are low in calories and high in water content, which means they can be helped with weight loss.
Pineapple is rich in vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) and is known to help of the immune system by stimulating the activity of the white blood cells in the body, and reducing the phlegm and mucus build up in the respiratory tracts and sinus cavities.
In addition to providing unique flavor characteristics, hibisicus flower extracts provides relief from high blood pressure and high cholesterol, as well as digestive, immune system, andinflammatory issues. It is also a good source of natural vitamin C.
A relative of ginger, this vivid yellow-orange spice is common in Indian, Southeast Asian, and Middle Eastern cooking. It’s also been used as medicine in places like India for centuries to treat issues such as breathing problems. Lately, turmeric has been touted as a super food that can fight cancer, ease depression, and more.
Turmeric is used to treat many health problems, such as skin and digestive issues. It contains the active ingredient curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidantproperties.
Because curcumin can help fight inflammation and keep blood sugar levels steady, it could be a useful tool to prevent or treat type 2 diabetes. One study followed 240 adults with prediabetes and found that taking a curcumin supplement over 9 months lowered their odds of developing diabetes.
“Researchers have found that phytochemicals from natural foods, such as the curcumin found in turmeric, may be a safe and effective way to help reduce inflammation and prevent and treat disease. While acute inflammatory responses are beneficial for the body in that they help heal injury, irritation, or infection, we know that chronic inflammation can contribute to disease onset. There is promising research to support curcumin’s use for the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects on obesity, to reduce arthritis pain and swelling, and to aid in complications such as diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, and cardiomyopathy.”
Not only does liposomal vitamin C have a substantially higher absorption rate than conventional vitamin C supplements, but it also comes with its own host of health benefits This is due to the phospholipids used to surround, or encapsulate, the vitamin C — the very mechanism that allows it to bypass the slow vitamin C transporters present in the gut.
Liposomes are actually similar to cells. The same phospholipids that makeup cell membranes also make up the outer shell of liposomes. The inner and outer walls of the liposome are made up of phospholipids, the most common being phosphatidylcholine, to create a lipid bilayer. A double layer of phospholipids (phospholipid bilayer) creates a sphere around an aqueous (water-containing) component, such as dissolved vitamin C.
Taking a liposomal form of vitamin C is much more effective and efficient than traditional methods of vitamin C supplementation in terms of absorption. Liposomal vitamin C also offers these benefits:

Organic Coconut Blossom Nectar Syrup
Best Low Glycemic Sugar Replacement
Organic Coconut Blossom Nectar Syrup is totally different from palm syrup.
