The Acerola is a deciduous tree, believed to originate from the Yucatan, and is distributed from South Texas through Mexico and Central America to northern South America (Venezuela, Surinam, Columbia) and throughout the Caribbean (Bahamas to Trinidad). Acerola has now been successfully introduced in sub-tropical areas throughout the world (Southeast Asia, India, South America), and some of the largest plantings are in Brazil. It produces a bright red fruit similar to a cherry that is incredibly rich in bioflavonoids and vitamin C. Because the thin-skinned fruits are easily bruised and quickly deteriorate once picked, the fresh fruit is not distributed commercially.
Due to the very high content of vitamin C and bioflavonoids, Acerola has commercial uses as a natural preservative, reducing oxidation, which is in fact why it is also used as a nutritional supplement. The average content of vitamin C is around 1.7 g/100 g of pulp, higher than other fruits tested, like pineapple, cashew, guava, kiwi, orange, lemon, and strawberry, but lower than the Camu-Camu fruit of Amazonia. Since this vitamin C is naturally bound and occurs with all of its cofactors, it is also a more gentle and easily assimilated form of vitamin C than synthetic ascorbic acid.
Primarily found in Europe and North America, black elderberries have long been used in traditional cultures to support immune function. Elderberry has an extensive history of being used in the early stages of seasonal immune challenges. Regarded as an "Elder" plant in Native American Herbalism, Elderberry has been used collectively by many tribes as a tonic medicine and food to promote health and vitality.Elderberries have also been used as a food source for making wine, and syrup. The bush has been referred to as "the medicine tree of the common people."
Elderberry has long been proposed as being immune supportive, and supports the body's natural defense. Research studies show Black Elderberry to have immune modulating and antioxidant properties. Because elderberry is high in flavonoid rich compounds, it exerts antioxidant protection on cells. By providing antioxidant protection, elderberry aids in protecting cellular health from free radical damage and airborne elements.
The US Formulary of 1918 says of this botanical: "Attention has been brought to this California member of the Papaveraceae, as a powerful herb for calming and supporting sleep.” Native American tribes from different parts of California used this plant for many medicinal purposes- especially as a calming agent. The Pomo tribes from areas north of what is now Sacramento reportedly used the crushed seeds as a topical application, while the Mendocino used a root preparation as an external cleansing agent and internally. It was used by the Costanoan tribes from what is now Monterey to promote healthy sleep (Soporific). It has a long tradition of use in Western Botanical medicine as a Nervine and Trophorestorative (promotes nutrition uptake at the cellular level).
Although there is not an overwhelming amount of research on California poppy, it has a strong reputation with traditional Herbalists for its calming and supportive actions for the entire nervous system. It is a gentle and mild tonic for the nervous system when it is stressed.
Grindelia is a genus of plants that is native to the Americas and belongs to the family Asteraceae, (Compositae). It is a plant with bright yellow flowers and is indigenous to much of the United States. It is also commonly called gumweed.
Native American people utilized remedies made from grindelia to address bronchial problems as well as skin afflictions of all kinds, including reactions to the poison ivy plant. Practitioners in the United States did not recognize the real effectiveness and value of this plant until the middle of the 19th century. After this time, it came into prominence as a major therapeutic and medicinal herb. Official recognition of grindelia came with the introduction of the herb in the Pharmacopoeia of the United States from 1882 to about 1926. Modern herbalists readily suggest this herb to support the lungs and surrounding tissue.
Today Grindelia continues to be used in herbal therapies to support the respiratory system and assist in the normal production and elimination of mucous. It also provides soothing support to an irritated respiratory tract. Plants in the grindelia genus leave in the mouth a bitter, acrid sensation, which persists for some time and is accompanied or followed by a flow of saliva.
Lemon balm is a lemon scented member of the mint family and is native to Southern Europe. With its mild lemon scent and flavor, Lemon balm has historically been valued as a culinary, cosmetic and medicinal herb. Fresh lemon balm leaves are often used to top drinks and garnish salads and main dishes while the dried leaves have been frequently used for teas. Throughout history as a medicinal herb, lemon balm has been used as a mild sedative and as a digestive aid to relieve gas, and is also well known for its use with fevers and to increase perspiration.
Lemon balm is often used alone or in combination with other synergistic herbs. The supportive role of lemon balm in the body is mainly due to its active constituents, particularly for its role in optimizing immune health, digestive health and providing a sense of balance for the nervous system. In the digestive system, lemon balm has historically been used to calm occasional discomfort associated with indigestion, gas and bloating. It is often used safely in infants with colic. While still in the early stages, several human research studies show promise with use of lemon balm to promote a sense of calm in body, particularly when it is stressed. Much of this research stems from an understanding of historical use of this herb. Research and traditional use also support using lemon balm in a supportive role for the immune system. Research demonstrates that lemon balm supports the immune system by initiating a healthy immune response and promoting health of the cell wall which is usually where microbes enter and infect the cell. While human studies are limited, in vitro studies do show promise for this herb in helping to promote a healthy immune system.
