New! Bulk Dried Lomatium Root


LOMATIUM ROOT
Lomatium dissectum dried and ground root is now available at Beneficial Botanicals. Make your own capsules or use as a tea to treat influenza A virus.

Lomatium is one of the most potent M2 inhibitors known, stronger than the pharmaceutical amantadine. Use of the M2 channel is necessary for the influenza A virus to penetrate cells, which is why the development of blockers for it was considered crucial. Unfortunately, the extensive us of chemical M2 inhibitors such as amantadine in poultry farms has now created nearly complete resistance to them in all influenza A strains. Lomatium dissectum offers us a chance to "fool" the virus with a different blocker than what the virus has "learned" to resist. : referenced from Herbal Antivirals, Natural Remedies for Emerging & Resistant Viral Infections by author Stephen Harrod Buhner 2013



Plant of the Month


USNEA
Usnea lapponcia is a wispy little lichen that doesn't look like much but in the medical lab, it has demonstrated its strength!

Usnic acid, the main constituent of Usnea, has been extensively studied as an antibiotic that inhibits 16 known gram-positive bacteria (both the resistant and non-resistant strains) including streptococcus, staphylococcus, and mycobacteria. Usnea is used for acute and chronic lung infections, such as pneumonia, colds and flu, and as an adjunct to tuberculosis (TB) treatment. Usnea appears to kill bacteria by disrupting their metabolic function, cutting off energy supply to the cells. Unlike bacterial cells, human cells are less permeable to usnic acid and are not adversely affected. So let's give Usnea the top shelf rating it deserves!

Soothing (Propolis) Throat Spray


Don't let bacteria find you with your guard down!

This throat spray isn't just to soothe a sore throat. It has bee propolis in it that coats the throat to guard against getting sick. What is propolis? Bees seal their hives with it to do the very same thing --prevent diseases and parasites from entering the hive, and to inhibit bacterial growth.

So if you think you'll be around someone who's sick, just a quick spritz before you go out the door could give you the invisible defense you need.
