why people buy Ayurvedic herbs?

ayurvedic herbs
by wallygrom

Question by : why people buy Ayurvedic herbs?
i’m planning to buy myself. with the thousand yrs of existence with many of the herbs proven scientifically to be effective and some are even used in commercial medicines. but still, i ned more insights from other buyers…

Best answer:

Answer by Gary Y
Well, just because something has existed for thousands of years, it doesn’t mean it works. And very few herbs have been actually proved scientifically to be effective; and more importantly, safe. Science actually investigates many promising crude drugs of plant origin, but typically they will isolate the active chemical compounds, and after much testing refine or synthesise them into pure, consistent medicines that then fall under tight regulatory controls.

Herbal drugs are problematic as they are unstandardised; the quality and strength is subject to seasonal and other variations, thus they are untested and uncontrolled. Safety, risks, side effects and interactions are unknown, they are typically handed out by people with little or no medical training, and many have been found to be contaminated with all sorts of toxins including heavy metals.

In fact, Ayurvedic can contain very dangerous quantities of heavy metals, including lead, mercury, thallium and arsenic; not just as contaminants, they are added deliberately in order to supposedly return the body to health by ‘rebalancing’ essential minerals.

From Wikipedia (always read the sources):

“Safety (Ayurvedic)
Rasa shastra, the practice of adding metals, minerals or gems to herbs, is a source of toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic.[77] Adverse reactions to herbs due to their pharmacology are described in traditional ayurvedic texts, but ayurvedic practitioners are reluctant to admit that herbs could be toxic and the reliable information on herbal toxicity is not readily available.[78]

A 2008 study of more than 230 products found that approximately 20% of remedies (and 40% of rasa shastra medicines) purchased over the Internet from both US and Indian suppliers contained lead, mercury or arsenic.[77][80][81]”

Last year, the New South Wales (Australia) government issued a safety warning for Ayurvedic, after a man died from lead poisoning:
“According to the Public Health Unit Director of Sydney South West Area Health Service, Dr Stephen Conaty, testing of a sample of the Ayurvedic medicine showed that it contained high levels of mercury, arsenic and especially high levels of lead. The medicine contained 2.3% lead by weight.”

Perhaps you need to rethink this idea of yours?

HCG Diet Skincare by Golden Essence Announced as a Compact Champion by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

St. Petersburg, Fl (PRWEB) December 02, 2011

HCG Diet Skincare by Golden Essence has been named a Champion of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. As a Champion, Golden Essences oil free, paraben free HCG Diet Skincare line has met the criteria of avoiding chemicals banned by health agencies outside of the US, as well as fully disclosing product ingredients. The announcement came through the Market Shift: The story of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the growth in demand for safe cosmetics released on November 30, 2011.

The HCG Diet Skincare line was originally developed in 2009 as an oil free skincare line for use with the HCG Diet. Developer and formulator, Beth Golden, PhD, ND was adamant about creating a healthy skincare line without the use of harmful chemicals such as synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, propylene glycol, dioxane, benzalkonium chloride, parabens, phthalates and toluene, just to name a few.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, Beth states, I know the harmful effects toxic skincare products cause and many people havent realized the connection with these products, hormone imbalances and weight problems Her philosophy in creating a skincare line full of natural anti-oxidants and essential oils from nature’s finest fruits and herbs, is in line with Golden Essence’s mission to provide “skincare from Nature”, as well as providing a healthy, oil- free skincare line for HCG Dieters.

As one of the more than 1,500 signers of the Compact between 2004 and 2011, Beth pledged that the Golden Essence skincare line would avoid using any of the more than 1,100 chemicals banned by the European Union in her skincare line and signed the Compact in 2009. After careful review since then, the Campaign determined that only 321 companies of the original 1500, including Golden Essence, met the goals of the Compact. As champions of the Campaigns cause, Golden Essence and 320 other companies, some of which also include Aubrey Organics, Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Jason Natural Products and Toms of Maine, have been rightfully designated as Champions.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics created the Compact for Safe Cosmetics in 2004 to raise the bar in the cosmetics industry with respect to the safety of cosmetics and personal care products. Specifically, the Compact was a tool to reward cosmetic companies that fully disclose their ingredients and do not use chemicals that are banned by health agencies in other countries.

The European Union took action in 2003 to ban chemicals known, suspected or likely to be carcinogens, mutagens or reproductive toxins from personal care products such as cosmetics, lotions and cleansers. In contrast to the EUs ban of more than 1,100 chemicals, the FDA has only banned or restricted the use of 11 chemicals in the United States. This discrepancy is what led to the formation of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics in 2004.

The Institute for Vibrant Living Introduces the New Digestive Supplement Coliminate

Camp Verde, AZ (PRWEB) December 01, 2011

According to WebMD, up to 55 million Americans suffer from chronic constipation, bloating, abdominal cramps and flatulence associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). For some people, it is just occasional constipation or bloating. For others, its an embarrassing, debilitating condition that is so uncomfortable it isolates them from work and social activities. IBS sufferers might also suffer from poor nutrient absorption as the large intestine is not functioning reliably. For others, the chronic constipation causes them to develop hemorrhoids and anal fissures that make bathroom trips (not to mention the simple act of sitting) difficult and painful. IBS is usually diagnosed after all other possible causes for the symptoms have been eliminated, so when someone is diagnosed with the condition, theyve most likely endured multiple painful and invasive medical tests.

So the good news is, you dont have a life-threatening disease. The bad news is you have a chronic, sometimes debilitating condition for which there is no known medical cure. The cause of IBS is unknown, though medical researchers suspect a number of possible culprits from stress, food sensitivities to low serotonin levels and bacterial imbalances.

How Coliminate May Help

Coliminate is an all-natural, medically approved botanical formula that provides relief from symptoms of constipation, bloating, abdominal discomfort and flatulence while promoting healing to a distressed intestinal tract. Here is a list of what Coliminate may help:

Promote regularity
Soften compacted stools
Facilitate proper and efficient absorption of nutrients
Reduce gas and bloating
Protect against hemorrhoids and anal fissures
Provide relief from diarrhea
Neutralize excess acidity
Relieve nausea and stomach ache

Coliminate includes this proprietary blend of these herbs and other natural ingredients to help you achieve clockwork regularity and rid yourself of painful, embarrassing and debilitating digestive issues:

Fennel is perhaps best known as a flavoring agent in cooking. But it has also been used to help relieve uncomfortable bloating and embarrassing flatulence. Fennel is also a rich source of beta-carotene, a vitamin-A precursor and powerful antioxidant.

Ginger is one of natures most versatile plants when it comes to addressing a great variety of digestive issues. It has been used extensively to relieve nausea, flatulence, stomach ache, diarrhea, excess stomach acid, and more.

Psyllium is one of natures medical miracles. This bulk-forming fiber is most commonly used to address constipation by absorbing liquids in order to form soft stools that are easy to pass. But it can also help provide relief from diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and the symptoms of ulcerative colitis.

Senna is a gentle digestive tract cleanser that has proven to be a natural laxative for those suffering from constipation. It has also been used to facilitate weight loss.

Slippery Elm is a soothing botanical that not only helps relieve the pain associated with hemorrhoids and other gastro-intestinal inflammation but it can also help protect against stomach ulcers, colitis, diverticulitis, and excess acidity.

Triphala is a popular Ayurvedic herbal formula from India that is an effective colon cleanser. It is also used to help rid the body of harmful toxins that cling to the walls of the intestines, Triphala also aids in the absorption of nutrients, especially in the duodenum.

Get Coliminate Now and Start Feeling Better!

Dont let constipation, flatulence, poor nutrient absorption, irritable bowel syndrome, and other debilitating gut issues make your life miserable. Try Coliminate today and start living a life free of intestinal discomfort and enjoy blessed relief from toilet troubles.

Turbo Snort Nasal Spray Gives Caffeine Heads a New Way To Wake Up

Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) November 29, 2011

TS Enterprises has released the worlds first caffeinated nasal spray under the brand name, Turbo Snort. This new energy nasal spray is the latest answer to consumer demand for new personal energy alternatives in this already booming category. While there are dozens of caffeinated energy shots, drinks, gums, mints, pills and mouth sprays, Turbo Snort could change the way consumers get their morning jolt of caffeine by way of the nose.

During the past decade, the caffeine energy market has grown into a recession proof giant that draws consumers from all walks of life. The craze that started with sleep deprived college students has expanded to athletes, fitness buffs, business people, moms on the go, or anyone who needs more pep to get through their day. Turbo Snort is designed to meet the needs of all caffeine consumers with a revolutionary way to deliver maximum safe energy and endurance.

Turbo Snort is a naturally caffeinated formulation that is fortified with the popular performance amino acids creatine, taurine and glutamine. Because the ingredients are delivered up the nose and absorbed through the blood-brain barrier, only tiny doses are needed for maximum results. Since the active ingredients dont have to travel through the body, the effects are instant and long lasting. Best of all, there are no jitters or crash effects, normally associated with caffeinated energy products.

Turbo Snorts homeopathic formulation features herbal extracts of guarana, green tea and kola nut to deliver the energizing and mental focus properties of caffeine. The amino acid complex is a proprietary combination designed to increase absorption and regulate the delivery of sustained energy and endurance throughout the body. Each spray delivers 0.96 mg of amino acids and less than 1 mg of caffeine, but the effects are far superior to overly potent energy drinks. Just two sprays per nostril provides up to three hours of sustained energy and superior mental focus.

Turbo Snort is available at online retailers, gyms, convenience stores, supermarkets and health food shops, or directly through the manufacturer at Samples are available for qualified media personnel and potential retailers upon request.

TS Enterprises is a division of Greensations, a company best known for developing a variety of natural anti-aging products. Some of their more popular brands include ThermaSkin, Venomous, Fresh Beauty Market and ThermaScalp.

Doctors Health Press Supports Study Showing Joint Pain Could Be Linked to Sleeping Problems

Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 26, 2011

The Doctors Health Press, a publisher of various natural health newsletters, books and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, supports a recent clinical study that has found an alarming link between sleep problems and an increased risk for joint pain.

As reported in the Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin on Friday, November 18, 2011, ( the study, performed on women, showed a stronger link in middle-aged and older women. Results were published in Arthritis & Rheumatism.

Experts estimate that fibromyalgia — a chronic musculoskeletal pain syndrome — affects more than five million Americans. Studies have shown it typically strikes in middle age, and 90% of patients are women. While previous research has found that insomnia, nighttime waking, and fatigue are symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia, it was unknown if sleep issues were actually helping cause fibromyalgia.

Researchers from Norway led the investigation, by scrutinizing a large health study. They selected 12,350 women who were free of musculoskeletal pain and movement disorders for the current study.

The findings were clear: a strong association exists between sleep disturbance and fibromyalgia risk in adult women. Women who often reported sleep problems had a greater risk of fibromyalgia than those who never experienced sleep problems.

At follow-up, 327 women had developed fibromyalgia. This is an incidence proportion of 2.6% during 10 years. The adjusted relative risk for women who reported having sleep problems “often” or “always” was 5.41 among women over 45 years of age. The researchers believe that more studies are needed to investigate whether early detection and treatment of sleep disturbance reduces the risk of fibromyalgia in women.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin is a daily e-letter providing natural health news with a focus on natural healing through foods, herbs and other breakthrough health alternative treatments. For more information on the Doctors Health Press, visit

Victor Marchione, MD is the Chairman of the Doctors Health Press Editorial Board. He is also the editor of The Food Doctor and has released a new video revealing 12 fighting foods to help virtually all of your current health problems. To see the video, visit
