Suggested dose: 2-2-2 cap after food 4 week. Spirulina was very effective in providing symptomatic relief in allergic rhinitis (nasal discharge, sneezing, nasal congestion and itching) Suggested dose: 2-2 cap after food 6 month. Spirulina was also shown to reduce blood pressure in hypertensive people. Suggested dose: 2-2-2 after food 4 week. Spirulina consumption has also favourable effects on blood glucose regulation in type II diabetics. Spirulina together with zinc at low doses may prevent and treat chronic Arsenic poisoning. Suggested dose: 1 cap per day after food A few case studies show spirulina supplement at high doses to reduce liver fat deposition in non-alcoholic fatty acid patients High doses of spirulina powder are also shown to increase muscular endurance. Low dose are shown to be effective in increasing the isometric muscle strength and isometric muscle endurance. Suggested dose: 2-2 cap 2 months. A note on Arsenic poisoning:-A news report in 2017 suggested that around 19% Indians drank water contaminated with above permissible levels of heavy metal Arsenic. This problem is likely has intensified in the past couple of years, possibly due to secondary source of Arsenic such as food prepared from the contaminated water, farms irrigated with contaminated water. The source of Arsenic is likely the deep underground as well as synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Continuous high consumption of Arsenic can lead to cancers of skin, bladder, kidney, lungs, etc. with some other not so serious effects such as skin discolouration. There is also some link between onset of diabetes, hypertension and reproductive disorders with continuous consumption of Arsenic contaminated water and food. Spirulina, when added to every diet along with zinc, may effectively reduce the Arsenic load on the body.References: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/spirulina-side-effects#spirulina-basics https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/by_the_way_doctor_is_spirulina_good_for_you Misbahuddin, M. et al.

Several clinical studies (those done on humans) have shown usefulness of Jamun as an adjuvant in the management of Type II diabetes. For example, supplementation with jamun powder for 3 months in diabetic patients led to around 30% and 22% reductions in fasting  blood glucose and post lunch blood glucose, respectively. Along with these symptoms of diabetes such as fatigue, frequent urination were reduced too. Another human study carried out for 2 months reported blood cholesterol reporting effects of Jamun.References: Pahlavani, N. et al. J. Cell Biochem. 2019, 1-9.

In diabetic and hypercholesterolemic patients Arjuna was shown to reduce total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-C and increased the good cholesterol, i. e. HDL-C. In patients with stable angina, Arjuna reduced the anginal episodes, improved the performance of patients in the treadmill test, and improved the left ventricular ejection fraction; it also lowered systolic blood pressure and the body mass index. Animal studies showed Arjuna to protect animal hearts from toxin induced fibrosis, necrosis, oxidative stress, pathological hypertrophy, and preserve anti-oxidant status of the heart muscles. Arjuna was also shown to protect their heart from ischemia-reperfusion injury. It also preserved function of inner wall of the arteries. Gokharu: Gokharu fruits are traditionally used to increase urinary output, as cardiac and liver protectants. A study on more than 400 patients showed Gokharu to be an ideal supportive treatment for the management of angina pain and was well suited for chronic consumption without any side effects. Animal studies further increase the possible effectiveness of Gokharu. Saponins from Gokharu were shown to dilate blood vessels that supply blood to heart muscles and thus improved the nutrient delivery and waste product removal from heart muscles (improved coronary blood circulation). Animal studies also hinted towards Gokharu to be useful in high blood pressure management and diabetes management. Curry patta: Used traditionally in Tadka, this is a medicinally active herb. Post menopausal women are at increased risk of cardiovascular events. In a study done on post menopausal women with bad lipid levels, curry leaves increased the HDL-C and reduced LDL-C and triacyl glycerol. Clinical trials have shown that in older patients (> 50), consumption pf curry powder (3 to 15 gm) per  for a month produced around 20% drop in the blood glucose values. The drop observed was both in fasting as well as in post lunch values Methi: Methi is shown in clinical trials to reduce blood glucose levels and help bring lipid parameters under control. Pomegranate peel: A human study showed pomegranate peel supplementation reduced both higher and lower blood pressures, reduced triglycerides, and increased the good high density lipoprotein-Cholesterol (HDL-C). A pilot study in use of peel in obese women with bad lipid profile showed a reduction in the cardiovascular disease risk factors. (upper blood pressure and Reactive Protein levels). Animals studies have hinted towards prebiotic effect of pomegranate peel. Punarnava: it is known traditionally as a diuretic. Various animal and in-vitro (test tube) studies have shown Punarnava to be useful in reducing blood glucose, stress (=adaptogen) and a cardioprotectant. References: Amalraj, S. Gopi.

(The IgG antibody content not less than 22%). Cow colostrum is not a milk but an anti-body rich secretion that is rich in growth factors, hormones, vitamins and anti-mcrobial peptides while being very poor in lactose. The contents help the new-born calf against microbes.  Known as Go Piyush in Ayurveda, it has been consumed as Kharvas in India since ages. It is an excellent protein supplement. But beyond that several studies have corroborated traditional medicinal uses of cow colostrum. Imcolostra supplantation may be useful as Protein supplement Supportive in the management of diarrhoea Supportive in immunity. Supportive for keeping the gut healthy and non-leaky. As a supportive in athletes where it may help to increase strength and endurance, build lean muscle mass, burn body fat, shorten recovery time, accelerate healing of injuries and support immunity during recovery. In patients admitted to ICU colostrum reduced the gut leakage and suppressed diarrhoea after 10 days of colostrum consumption. Actively training athletes have generally increased leaky guts. One study showed a good reduction in the leaking. People who take pain killers like aspirin ,ibuprofen have very leaky guts. Colostrum is found to be very useful in preventing this leakage during short term pain killer treatments (~ 1 year).In a study done of children aged 2 to 5 years and suffering from bacterial/viral diarrhoea (due to rotavirus, Shigella, Salmonella, Cryptosporidia, etc) and/or respiratory infections (due to rhinovirus, Influenza virus, Staphylococcus bacteria, etc.) the colostrum supplement significantly reduced diarrhoea after 2 months while episodes of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) reduced by more than 90% after 3 months. Athletes are very susceptible to respiratory infections during periods of intense training  and post competition period. Cow colostrum has shown to be effective in shortening  the duration and number of episodes of symptoms of URTI. Cow colostrum also probably has components that are prebiotic in nature.References: Eslamian G et al. Nutrition, 2019, 60, 106-111. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nut.2018.10.013 Halasa M. et al.
