Hoxsey Red Clover Burdock Plus Blood Cleansing Herbal Formula

Copaiba Copaifera officinalis (Fabaceae)

Many species of this genus, from bushes to trees contain the valuable oleoresin, which is extracted from incisions made in the base of the tree. It exhibited moderate cytotoxic activity against four cancer cell lines (University of Bio Organics, Spain). For inflammation, it is applied directly to the site(3, p81; 8, p21). A decoction of the bark for baths is made in Venezuela for rheumatism(2, p224). Copaiba oil is mixed with honey and swallowed for throat ailments(3, p81; 2, p224), for stomach ulcers(2, p224;3, p81), sinusitis(2, p224; 8, p21), inflammation of kidneys and cystitis(2, p224), for urinary incontinence, as a diuretic and laxative. There is also reference to it as antirheumatic, expectorant and contraceptive.(2, p224)

2. Antimicrobial terpenoids from the oleoresin of the Peruvian medicinal plant Copaifera paupera.
Tincusi BM, Jimenez IA, Bazzocchi IL, Moujir LM, Mamani ZA, Barroso JP, Ravelo AG, Hernandez BV.
Instituto Universitario de Bio-Organica Antonio Gonzalez, Universidad de La Laguna, La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain.
Twelve known diterpenes 1 - 11 and 13, and three known sesquiterpenes 14 - 16, along with a new C(20) - C(15) terpenoid 17, with a structure based on an unprecedented skeleton in which a labdane diterpene is linked to a monocyclic sesquiterpene by an ester bridge, were isolated from the oleoresin of the Peruvian medicinal plant Copaifera paupera (Herzog) Dwyer (Leguminosae). Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectral analysis, including homo- and heteronuclear correlation NMR experiments (COSY, ROESY, HMQC and HMBC), and by comparison with data in the literature. The leishmanicidal, antimicrobial, cytotoxic, and aldose reductase inhibitory activities were studied. Compounds 1 and 11 showed significant antimicrobial activity (MIC < 10 microg/ml) against Gram-positive bacteria, comparable with cephotaxime used as control. Compound 2 exhibited moderate cytotoxic activity against four cancer cell lines.

The HERBS AMERICA COMPANY and MACA MAGIC were founded by Jerome River Black. He was the first to cultivate and distribute live maca root plants in the USA and began germplasm collections and cultivar selection of maca in the Peruvian Altiplano in 1994. In addition to his studies of maca in the Peruvian highlands, Jerome is a published ethnobotanist with a myriad of expertise and an extensive history of working within a variety of botanical experiences. He has explored remote rivers, lakes, and forests in dozens of exotic countries, his travels having taken him to the depths of steamy jungles and the tops of 20 thousand foot mountains...

He is the award winner of the Natural Foods Institute "Best New Plants" Award and the subject of numerous articles about plant exploration. He regularly lectures and teaches others about new and rare food-crop development. Jerry currently resides with his family in the lovely rural area of Murphy, Oregon, surrounded by acres of land containing thousands of varieties of rare plants from around the world.

Over the course of nearly 20 years, HERBS AMERICA'S founders have used USDA agriculture and agroforestry permits to develop more than 400 rare fruits and new superfoods for introduction into the farming sector and natural foods market. To accomplish this HERBS AMERICA works directly with botanists, tribal leaders, universities, and laboratories to cultivate and research traditional medicines which are found to be beneficial for both humans and the land. Our goal is to bring equitability to small farming operations in developing countries and support indigenous populations in their efforts of preserving culture and the environment while at the same time supporting agrarian economies. Working in more than thirty countries around the world, the company donates and exports fruit trees and vegetable seeds to dozens of farmers in countries on several continents.

Our long-term philosophy commits us to our product lines long after they leave the farms and jungles. We like to say: "Eat well! Think well! Live close to nature and work for the good of the community!" We believe that traditional wisdom and modern science can combine important resources for a long-term vision of biological health. We are adamant in our support of indigenous land rights and sustainable agriculture. A portion of our company's annual budget is designated to help protect natural heritage through conservation projects.
