Free-Mart Siaga is a non-heated, water extract of three very important herbs. We use a new Quantum Extraction Technology (QET(TM)) which preserves all of natural benefits of the Chaga Mushroom, Black Cumin Seed and Licorice Root. The following information is a compilation of known benefits of these three herbs.
Chaga - The King of Herbs
Chaga is one of God’s greatest gifts to your health. Its nickname “Mushroom of Immortality” appears to be more than just a clever slogan.
Chaga is so powerful that world famous Russian author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn dedicated a book to this wonderful herb. Chaga has also been declared an anti-Cancer agent by the U.S. Government’s Library of medicine (Pub Med). Chaga, like many good things, is extremely rare, impossible to reproduce artificially, and can take up to 30 years to grow in the wilderness.
Chaga’s scientific name is Inonotus Obliquus. It is a non-toxic mushroom that has many medicinal qualities. Chaga is known as one of the most powerful food antioxidants in the world and it has the highest level of superoxide dismutase (SOD) that has been detected in any food or herb.
Chaga is rich in natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phenols, containing the compounds betulin and betulinic acid – which are derived directly from host North American birch trees. Both betulin and betulinic acid demonstrate anti-tumor effects, which explains why chaga is known as an anti-cancer agent. Additionally, some science shows that betulin can play a beneficial role in controlling metabolic disorders, such as obesity and metabolic syndrome. A group of compounds in chaga called lanostanoids also appear to play significant anti-cancer roles.
The exact anti-cancer activity of chaga is not completely understood, but some compounds in the fungus boost immune activity, some specifically prevent cancer cells from replicating, and others cause premature cancer cell death. Many of the agents in chaga appear to be active against cancer. This argues for the utilization of a whole chaga extract, rather than isolating a single compound.
One of the most surprising benefits of chaga is in regards to psoriasis. In one Russian study, psoriasis patients who took chaga recovered from their condition. Given that psoriasis is notoriously difficult to treat and responds to very few therapies, this effect alone could be of enormous benefit to many.
The compound ergosterol in chaga, along with related agents, shows anti-inflammatory activity. This may account for why chaga is thought of as a life-extending agent in China, as inflammation is part of every chronic, degenerative disease. Reducing systemic inflammation can mitigate or help prevent a variety of health problems, leading to a healthier life – and presumably a longer one.
Traditionally, chaga has been used for a variety of purposes. Scientific investigation of chaga’s use as an anti-allergy agent in animals, shows that the fungus has the ability to prevent anaphylactic shock – a serious and potentially fatal consequence of a severe allergy. In another study, administration of an extract of chaga reduced infection due to the Herpes simplex virus.
In a cell study, chaga showed potent activity against the hepatitis C virus. Whether this same activity will prove true in living humans remains to be seen, but if it does, then chaga will benefit thousands of people who often suffer for many years with this crippling disease.
In North America, Chaga was an ancient Native American Medicine that was considered by Medicine Men to be their most powerful weapon in the fight against illness and disease. This is due to the fact that Wild Chaga is one of the most concentrated sources of 3-beta-D-glucans which make up a large part of the cellular structure of this herb. Beta glucaons cause a pan-systemic modulation of T-Cells, Macrophages and Neutrophil White Blood Cells when ingested. The number of T-Cells has been shown to increase in number and viability by as much as 4000% within 20 hours after taking Chaga!
Macrophages and Neutrophils are the two cells upon which all other Immune Cells depend. You can have many viable B-Cells and T-Cells, but they will not be effective without the programming provided by the “Communicator” cells that assist in activating the healing stem cells found in your body. Chaga also contains bitter triterpene compounds that support the thymus and spleen. It also contains anti-tumor polysaccharides, and blood pressure-reducing angiotensin re-uptake inhibitors.
Chaga is a Rich Source of Germanium
Siaga is one of the richest sources of natural germanium. Germanium is a powerful healer as well as pain reliever. Once in contact with the human skin, the negatively charged ions from the millions of germanium atoms will neutralize many of the harmful positively charged ions from mobile phones, computers, electronic and electrical equipment, chemicals, acid rain and ultraviolet rays. This process is also known as the dehydrogenation effect where oxygen atoms combine with hydrogen ions which have accumulated in the body to remove them. This also achieves muscle relieving effects as well as reducing fatigue and tiredness.
Chaga Mushroom is noted for its ability to:
• Halt the growth of cancer tumors
• Lower high cholesterol.
• Repair “sludge blood” and reverse “sticky blood”.
• Boost the oxygenation of blood.
• Ease inflammation and sooth arthritis pain.
• Protect the body from oxidative stress.
• Prevent kidney stones and protect the body from oxalates in coffee and tea.
• Alkalize the body, helping to balance overly acidic dietary habits.
• Heal ulcers, IBS, Crohn’s disease and other digestive disorders.
• Reduce high blood pressure.
• Nourish the body with minerals, vitamins, enzymes and glyconutrients.
• Accelerate healing from physical burns and radiation burns.
• Replace dozens of first aid products, including antibacterial sprays.
• Halt colon cancer, heal the intestines and lubricate the digestive tract.
• End constipation.
• Stabilize blood sugar and reduce triglycerides in diabetics.
• Prevent and treat candida infections.
• Protect the kidneys from disease.
• Function as nature’s own “sports drink” for electrolyte balance.
• Boost cardiovascular performance and physical endurance.
• Speed recovery from injury or physical exertion.
Black Cumin Seed
Black seed has been used to make medicines for over 2000 years. It was even discovered in the tomb of King Tut and the prophet Muhammed claimed that it “cures everything but death.”
Historically, black seed has been used for headache, toothache, nasal congestion, and intestinal worms. It has also been used for pink eye, infections, abscesses, digestive tract conditions including gas, colic, diarrhea, dysentery, constipation, and hemorrhoids. It has also been used for respiratory conditions including asthma, allergies, cough, bronchitis, emphysema, flu, swine flu, and congestion.
Other uses include lowering blood pressure, lowering cholesterol levels, treating cancer, and boosting the immune system.
Women have used black seed to start menstruation, and to increase milk flow.
Black seed is sometimes used in combination with cysteine, vitamin E, and saffron to ease the side effects of a chemotherapy drug called cisplatin.
Some people apply black seed directly to the skin for joint pain (rheumatism), headache, and certain skin conditions. In foods, black seed is used as a flavoring or spice.
How does it work?
There is some scientific evidence to suggest that black seed might help boost the immune system, fight cancer and lessen allergic reactions by acting as an antihistamine, but there isn’t enough information in humans yet.
There is impressive scientific research demonstrating that the Black Cumin found in Siaga has some very beneficial, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, making it a traditional remedy for colds and viral infections. It’s effectiveness may be due to its ability to strengthen the immune system so that one can better resist infections.
Black Cumin contains linoleic acid and gamma linolenic acid which are both essential for a healthy immune system.
One of the most important components in Black Cumin is the volatile oil Nigellone which acts as an antihistamine and is known to be effective for bronchial asthma and respiratory allergies. It has the ability to expand and relax the airways, reduces the release of histamines into the bloodstream and works against allergic reactions. Long-term supplementation with Black Cumin has been shown to reduce allergic symptoms up to 90%. Saponin and nigellin in Black Cumin give it its appetite-enhancing, digestion-stimulating and pain relieving qualities.
Research on Black Cumin has focused on its positive effects on the immune system. Scientists know that Black Cumin stimulates bone marrow and immune cells, raises the interferon production, protects the body against viruses, destroys tumor cells and inhibits infection. Research revealed that Black Cumin possesses antibiotic properties that act against a wide spectrum of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. In side-by-side tests Black Cumin matched or exceeded the effectiveness of ampicillin in defeating gram-positive bacteria.
Laboratory tests also indicate that Black Cumin may hold promise in fighting cancer cells. The study shows that Black Cumin is superior to other medicines in many regards. It proved to be more effective than chemotherapy and radiation treatments in laboratory animals without serious side effects.
The Cancer Immuno-Biology Laboratory of South Carolina ran a series of experiments in which mice were infected with tumor cells. Two thirds of the animals treated with Black Cumin oil were still alive thirty days after being infected. In contrast, all the mice that did not receive Black Cumin treatment died within the same time period.
Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza Glabra)
An adaptogenic herb, licorice root can be found growing in Europe, the Mediterranean and Asia, and it’s been used for thousands of years and dozens of purposes, including as a leaky gut remedy.
In Chinese medicine, licorice root has been used for centuries as an anti-inflammatory herb for many of the same uses that science has now confirmed, which are coughs, colds, gastrointestinal issues and female reproductive issues.
One interesting note about the way licorice has been used in Chinese medicine is that it was used as a “guide herb.” Licorice root was used in tandem with other herbs and remedies to enhance their effects and essentially guide the other herbs to where they would be most beneficial. In 2013, this use was observed and reviewed by the Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This ancient purpose, along with other licorice root benefits, no doubt contributed to licorice root being the most used herb in Chinese medicine!
Licorice root has many wonderful health benefits. It contains many anti-depressant compounds and is an excellent alternative to St. John’s Wort. Licorice root is perhaps one of the most over-looked of all herbal wonders.
Licorice root is so complex that researchers have isolated 170 different compounds in Chinese licorice. Obviously, we don’t have time to discuss them all, and researchers learn more about compounds in herbs every day. But there are at least four main types of compounds found in licorice root: flavonoids, coumarins, triterpenoids and stilbenoids.
A prominent example of the benefits found in these compounds is the flavonoid glabradin, which contributes to numerous licorice root benefits. First described in the 1970s, researchers have since discovered many of its effects. It’s observed to be anti-inflammatory, have an effect on metabolism and function as a phytoestrogen — having a very positive effect on women’s health.
Hundreds of potentially healing substances have been identified in licorice, including compounds called flavonoids and various plant estrogens (phytoestrogens). The herb’s key therapeutic compound, glycyrrhizin (which is 50 times sweeter than sugar) exerts numerous beneficial effects on the body, making licorice a valuable herb for treating a host of ailments. It seems to prevent the breakdown of adrenal hormones such as cortisol (the body’s primary stress-fighting adrenal hormone), making these hormones more available to the body.
Licorice has a well-documented reputation for healing ulcers. It can lower stomach acid levels, relieve heartburn and indigestion and acts as a mild laxative.
Licorice can also be used for irritation, inflammation and spasm in the digestive tract. Through its beneficial action on the liver, it increases bile flow and lowers cholesterol levels. In recent research licorice has also been hailed for its potential to fight tooth decay.
Licorice also appears to enhance immunity by boosting levels of interferon, a key immune system chemical that fights off attacking viruses. It also contains powerful antioxidants as well as certain phytoestrogens that can perform some of the functions of the body’s natural estrogens; very helpful during the menopause. Glycyrrhizinic acid also seems to stop the growth of many bacteria and of viruses such as influenza A.
Effect on pain and stress
Licorice has an aspirin-like properties that may be helpful in relieving fevers and soothing pain such as headaches. Its anti-allergenic effect is very useful for hay fever, allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis and bronchial asthma. Possibly by its action on the adrenal glands, licorice has the ability to improve resistance to stress. It should be thought of during times of both physical and emotional stress, after surgery or during convalescence, or when feeling tired and run down.
Respiratory problems and sore throat
Licorice eases congestion and coughing by helping to loosen and thin mucus in airways; this makes a cough more “productive,” bringing up phlegm and other mucus bits. Licorice also helps to relax bronchial spasms. The herb also soothes soreness in the throat and fights viruses that cause respiratory illnesses and an overproduction of mucus, such as irritating coughs, asthma and chest infections.
Fatigue and muscle soreness
By enhancing cortisol activity, glycyrrhizin helps to increase energy, ease stress and reduce the symptoms of ailments sensitive to cortisol levels, such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
Supports healthy liver
Licorice both protects the liver and promotes healing in this vital organ. The herb’s anti-inflammatory properties help calm hepatitis-associated liver inflammation. Licorice also fights the virus commonly responsible for hepatitis and supplies valuable antioxidant compounds that help maintain the overall health of the liver.
PMS and menstrual problems
The phytoestrogens in licorice have a mild estrogenic effect, making the herb potentially useful in easing certain symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), such as irritability, bloating and breast tenderness. Although the glycyrrhizin in licorice actually inhibits the effect of the body’s own estrogens, the mild estrogenic effect produced by licorice’s phytoestrogens manages to override this inhibiting action.
Heart and Circulatory System
Recent studies have found that by limiting the damage from LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, licorice may discourage artery-clogging plaque formation and contribute to the healthy functioning of the heart. Research indicates that modest doses of licorice (100 mg a day) have this effect.
