Maintains a Healthy Inflammatory Response
Formula based on 5 years of NIH-NCCAM Funded Echinacea Research
DESCRIPTION OF FORMULA
When the respiratory tract experiences airborne stress, the immune system secretes specific inflammatory hormones that have far-reaching and detrimental effects on the body. In order to preclude this effect, it is important to support the inflammatory response. Quick Defense Liquid Phyto-Caps contain select herbs that are critical to enhancing the body’s respiratory response to environmental stressors and supporting the epithelial cells that line the respiratory system. This unique formulation utilizing patent-pending extraction methods has produced a compounded formula that has a profound impact on the body and helps to maintain a healthy inflammatory response to respiratory stress.
Echinacea root has long been used by Native American groups to support the respiratory functions during the winter season. However, the exact function of this plant has not been clearly understood until recently. Research conducted by Gaia Herbs, along with several universities and institutions, has elucidated compounds that have restructured our understanding of how Echinacea works. These compounds, identified and concentrated by Gaia Herbs, are called "Px-A Factors", which represent the specific alkylamide fractions known as Isobutylamides. These concentrated alkylamide factors found primarily in the roots of the Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea help maintain a healthy inflammatory response. "Px-A Factors" support the tissues of the sinus and throat cavity that are exposed to air-borne stressors, and balance an acutely challenged immune system.
Regarded as an "Elder" plant in Native American Herbalism, the Elderberry has been used collectively by various tribes as a tonic medicine and food staple to promote overall health and vitality. It compliments the Quick Defense Liquid Phyto-Caps formula by supporting respiratory resistance through the promotion of free-radical quenching antioxidants rich in the fruit extracts. By providing powerful antioxidant protection from free-radical airborne elements, the Elderberry prevents damage to the cellular tissues of the body and promotes overall wellness to the respiratory apparatus.
Andrographis is a traditional medicine that has been used extensively in India, China, and Thailand to support many functions of the body. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Andrographis is considered a "cooling" herb and was often prescribed with warming herbs such as Ginger making this addition to the formula critical to restoring balance to the body. Recent clinical studies have confirmed this herb’s ability to reestablish tissue integrity during respiratory crisis. Interestingly, the clinical data illustrated the wide scope of its potency when it suggested that Andrographis promotes both antigen-specific as well non-specific immune functions making this plant as versatile as it is potent.
Ginger is highly valued in many traditions, including Ayurveda, and traditional Western herbalism for its soothing properties. Ginger rhizome is one of the most powerful botanical inhibitors of 5-lipoxygenase, an enzyme responsible for the production of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins and thromboxanes. By supporting a healthy inflammatory response, Ginger promotes wellness of the mucous membranes in the sinus cavity and respiratory system during times of challenge.
Quick Defense Liquid Phyto-Caps is a compounded botanical preparation that utilizes historical wisdom with modern research to enhance the body’s respiratory response to environmental stressors. By supporting the epithelial cells that line the respiratory system Quick Defense Liquid Phyto-Caps reinforces a healthy inflammatory response and hastens quick and vital improvement.
