A proprietary blend of Cocoa Butter, 1g of exclusive Freeze Dried Garlic Powder and 100mg of Artemisinin; 30 rectal suppositories per jar.
Each product in the line of suppositories is made with the purest, most high-quality, high antioxidant, food-grade Cocoa Butter.
Suppositories contain a base of pure 100% organic cocoa butter with two beneficial herbal extracts added: one gram of exclusive organic freeze-dried garlic powder and 100 mgs of Artemisinin powder. The primary health functions associated with this formula are antioxidant, support for microbial, fungal, parasitic, and co-infection defense, detoxification, and cardiovascular benefits.
Suppositories provide a convenient means of delivery for substances either directly to local vaginal or rectal tissues, or to pathways of systemic absorption. The mucous membranes of the rectum have a rich blood supply and medicines or other herbal substances can be readily absorbed and delivered to the circulatory system. Oral administration of medicines may not always be possible if a patient is incapable of swallowing because they are nauseous, unconscious, or uncooperative–as in the case of a small child. In some cases, more absorption of a medicine can occur through the rectal tissues than orally, because rectal absorption bypasses initial digestion in the gut and delays processing and breakdown by the liver.
Cocoa butter is a vegetable fat that comes from the fermented, roasted, and crushed seeds of the cocoa plant. This rich emollient is packed with vitamins, minerals, and bioflavonoids, and has been used for hundreds of years to soothe and moisturize the skin, heal wounds and irritations, minimize stretch marks in pregnant women, and to treat vaginal, respiratory and bowel disorders. Studies have shown it to be extremely helpful in speeding the healing of serious burns . Cocoa butter’s health benefits stem from potent antioxidant abilities attributable to its high flavonoid content (12-18%). It has been shown to encourage anti-inflammatory reactions, stimulate circulation, and support the immune system. Studies have also found cocoa butter to inhibit low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation and platelet aggregation. The manufacturer uses a food grade cocoa butter that is 100% organic, undeodorized and unbleached. The minimal amount of processing that it undergoes preserves the highest antioxidant content possible for your health benefit. It also has a wonderful chocolaty aroma. Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature, but melts easily in the body, and its antioxidant content makes it a highly stable emollient that is very resistant to rancidity. All of these properties make cocoa butter an excellent ingredient for its wide use today in skin creams, lotions, soaps, hair products, suppositories, and as a main component of well-loved chocolates.
Garlic has been used for centuries not only as a food spice but also therapeutically, to fight infections and ward off diseases. It contains a number of beneficial components including minerals, enzymes, and thiosulfate compounds (allicin, in particular) that impart its health benefits. Garlic acts as a powerful antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiparasitic agent, and has shown effectiveness against a wide range of infections including Candida albicans (causing yeast infections), Helicobacter pylori (causing gastric ulcers), Giardia (causing extreme intestinal dysfunction), and multidrug-resistant forms of E. coli, Staph. aureus, and others . It is promising that drug resistant bacteria such as those causing MDR (multi-drug resistant) tuberculosis, do not seem to develop resistance to allicin. In general, garlic is believed to boost the immune system and may even enhance the effectiveness of some prescription antibiotics.
In addition to its antibiotic effect, garlic’s antioxidant properties boost anti-inflammatory and immune reactions. Garlic’s beneficial effect on cardiovascular health has also been extensively studied and is widely accepted. It appears to assist the body in decreasing platelet aggregation , inhibiting enzymes involved in lipid synthesis, suppressing oxidation of LDL (good cholesterol), and by affecting cytokines that regulate inflammation. In addition, production of hydrogen sulfide during the digestion of garlic is believed to signal relaxation of vascular smooth muscle and thus help reduce blood pressure.
Artemisinin is a derivative of Artemesia annua, a pungent-smelling shrub that has long been used by ancient Chinese herbalists to treat fevers. Artemisinin is most well known for its valuable contribution to the global fight against malaria. However, like garlic, it is an effective broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent. Studies have shown Artemisinin can be helpful with ailments such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, yeast infections, hemorrhoids, Schistosomiasis, and Giardia. It has also shown promising possibilities in the area of cancer resistance. By decreasing the sensitivity of breast cancer cells to estrogen, Artemisinin may be helpful as an adjuvant therapy for certain types of breast cancer.
