CandiRid - Rainforest Immune System Support


CandiRid - Rainforest Immune System Support

0.25 LBS

Product Description

CandiRid is both state of the art and ancient  - a powerful combination of herbs rarely available in Western medicine that have been used for thousands of years in the Amazon Rainforest to boost the immune system and attack resistant pathogens.  25% of all pharmaceutical drugs are less effective/more dangerous analogs of herbs from the Amazon Rainforest.  This product combines several amazon plants, along with Uva Ursi, which is effective in treating urinary tract and yeast infections.  Several of the herbs in this formulation also have been used traditionally in the treatment of diabetes and have in research studies been shown to lower levels of blood sugar. These herbs are ethically and sustainably harvested in a fair trade arrangement with the indigenous people in the areas where they grow.

The herbs in this supplement have exhibited in research properties of being strongly anti-micoplamsal, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial. It is similar to anti-biotics in that it indiscriminately kills friendly and harmful organisms in theh gut, so it is recommended to supplement with a probiotic while taking this supplement.  Also there is the possiblity of experiencing a rapid die-off/herxheimer reaction, so if die-off symptoms occur, it is a good idea to supplement with a supplement such as Green Multi+ that provide probiotics and also contain Zeorlite to help absorb the die-off.  This product would also work well with Immunocillin, which helps to degrade the biofilm so that the active ingredients in the Candid-rid can get at and kill hiding gut pathogens.  If used in this combination, the Immunocillin could be taken with the Candi-Rid, and the Green Multi+ could be taken about 2 hours later.

Caution:  Do not use if you are pregnant, as one of the herbs may stimulate uterine contractions.

Candi-Rid contains the following herbs:

Mullaca  - Traditional uses:  bacterial and viral infections, mycoplasma and mycobacterial  infections, anti-cancerMullaca is an annual herb used in traditional medicine in Peru and Brazil.  Preliminary studies showing that it is an effective immune stimulant, is toxic to numerous types of cancer and leukemia cells, and that it has antimicrobial properties. The new steroids found in mullaca have received the most attention, and many of the documented anti-cancerous, anti-tumorous and anti-leukemic actions are attributed to these steroids.  In 2002 and 2000, mullaca was shown to be active in vitro against several strains of mycobacteriums and mycoplasmas (both very stubborn types of bacteria which are not widely susceptible to standard antibiotics). In addition to these actions, mullaca has demonstrated effective antibacterial properties in vitro against numerous types of gram positive and gram negative bacteria, including Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. Other research groups in Japan have been focusing on mullaca's antiviral actions and preliminary studies show that it is active in vitro against Polio virus I, Herpes simplex virus I, the measles virus, and HIV-I - demonstrating reverse transcriptase inhibitory effects. Western scientists did somewhat validate the indigenous use for diabetes when they reported a mild hypoglycemic effect in mice fed a water extract of the root. One must wonder what the results would have been if they had followed native customs and employed an alcohol extract instead. 

Brazillian Peppertree - Traditional uses:  a broad-spectrum antimicrobial, anti-yeast, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-cancer.  A shrubby tree, used in traditional medine throughout the tropics.  In  laboratory tests, the essential oil (as well as leaf and bark extracts) has demonstrated potent antimicrobial properties. Brazilian peppertree has displayed good-to-very strong in vitro antifungal actions against numerous fungi, as well as Candida. One research group indicated that the antifungal action of the essential oil was more effective than the antifungal drug Multifungin®. The essential oil and leaves have clinically demonstrated in vitro antibacterial activity against numerous bacterial strains (which probably explains why it is an herbal remedy for so many infectious conditions in its native countries). In 1996, a U.S. patent was awarded for an essential oil preparation of Brazilian peppertree as a topical bactericidal medicine used against Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus for humans and animals, and as an ear, nose, and/or throat preparation against bacteria. Another patent was awarded in 1997 for a similar preparation used as a topical antibacterial wound cleanser. In much earlier in vitro tests, a leaf extract of Brazilian peppertree demonstrated antiviral actions against several plant viruses. In addition to these documented antimicrobial properties, Brazilian peppertree passed an anticancer plant screening program in 1976 by demonstrating antitumorous actions.

Anamu - Traditional uses:  anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, diabetes, anti-cancer, pain relief for arthritis.  Anamu has demonstrated anti-microbial properties invitro against numerous pathogens, including E. coli, Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas, Shigella, Mycobacterium, several strains of fungi, and Candida.  Anamu is an herbaceous perennial that grows up to 1 m in height. It is indigenous to the Amazon rainforest and tropical areas of Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Africa. Many clinical reports and studies document that anamu shows broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties against numerous strains of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast. In a 2002 study, anamu extracts inhibited the replication of the bovine diarrhea virus; this is a test model for hepatitis C virus. A Cuban research group documented anamu's antimicrobial properties in vitro against numerous pathogens, including Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas, and Shigella and, interestingly enough, their crude water extracts performed better than any of the alcohol extracts. A German group documented good activity against several bacteria, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, several strains of fungi, and Candida Anamu's antifungal properties were documented by one research group in 1991, and again by a separate research group in 2001. Its antimicrobial activity was further demonstrated by researchers from Guatemala and Austria who, in separate studies in 1998, confirmed its activity in vitro and in vivo studies against several strains of protozoa, bacteria, and fungi.  While anamu has not been used widely employed for diabetes, it has been clinically documented to have hypoglycemic actions. Researchers in 1990 demonstrated the in vivo hypoglycemic effect of anamu, showing that anamu decreased blood sugar levels by more than 60% one hour after administration to mice. This finding reflects herbal medicine practice in Cuba where anamu has been used as an herbal aid for diabetes for many years.

Clavilla - Traditional uses:  a broad-spectrum anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-Candida, bowel cleanser and laxative.  Clavillia is a perennial herb that reaches a height of 50-100 cm from a tuberous root. The plant and root have demonstrated other biological activities in addition to the antiviral actions of the MAPs. In 2001, researchers found new phenolic compounds in clavillia which demonstrated in vitro action against the yeast Candida albicans. A hot water extract of the flower, leaf, and root of clavillia has shown antifungal activity in another in vitro study.  In early research, the root of the plant (in water and ethanol extracts) also demonstrated mild uterine stimulant actions in rats, and antispasmodic actions in guinea pigs. 

Macela - Traditional uses:  antiviral, antibacterial, analgesic (pain-reliever), anti-inflammatory, bile stimulant, diabetesMacela is a medium-sized aromatic annual herb.  In animal studies with mice and rats, macela demonstrated pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and smooth-muscle (gastrointestinal) relaxant properties internally without toxicity, in addition to anti-inflammatory and pain-relief actions externally. This may explain why macela has long been used effectively for many types of pain, gastrointestinal difficulties, menstrual cramps, and asthma. In vitro studies have demonstrated that macela is molluscicidal (in a test used to ascertain its effectiveness against the tropical disease schistosomiasis), and active against Salmonella, E. coli, and Staphylococcus. This could explain its long history of use for dysentery, diarrhea, and infections. It also has shown to be a strong antioxidant, to increases the flow of bile from the gallbladder, to help protect against liver damage and to lower liver enzymes levels. Again, this certainly supports its traditional uses for liver and gallbladder problems of various kinds. Some of the in vitro antioxidant testing performed suggested that macela interfered in the degenerative processes of arteriosclerosis (it reduced blood stickiness, blood fats, and blood oxidation). Macela has been used traditionally for diabetes throughout the tropics where it grows. Not until 2002 did researchers validate this use: a water extract of the entire plant exhibited blood sugar-lowering activity in a mouse model of Type 2 diabetes. This hypoglycemic action was attributed to a novel plant chemical found in macela called achyrofuran.

Fedegoso - Traditional uses:  anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-Candidal, liver support, detoxification, anti-parasitic, anti-malarial, anti-cancer.  Fedegoso is a small tree that grows 5–8 m high and is found in many tropical areas of South America. Fedegoso has been the subject of recent clinical research for its beneficial effects on the liver and immune system. In the late 1970s, two research groups published three studies citing the beneficial effects of fedegoso in human patients with liver toxicity, hepatitis, and even acute liver failure. Other researchers followed up on those actions, publishing four different in vivo studies (mice and rats) from 1994 to 2001. These studies report that fedegoso leaf extracts have the ability to protect the liver from various introduced chemical toxins, normalize liver enzymes and processes, and repair liver damage. Some of this research has also demonstrated significant immunostimulant activity by increasing humoral immunity and bone marrow immune cells in mice, and protecting them from chemically-induced immunosuppresion. These researchers and oers also reported the antimutagenic actions of fedegoso. In this research, fedegoso was able to prevent or reduce the mutation of healthy cells in the presence of laboratory chemicals which were known to mutate them.  In other in vivo studies, fedegoso leaf extracts have demonstrated an anti-inflammatory, hypotensive, smooth-muscle relaxant, antispasmodic, weak uterine stimulant, vasoconstrictor, and antioxidant activities in laboratory animals. These documented actions certainly help to explain its uses in traditional medicine systems for menstrual cramps and other internal inflammatory conditions. Fedegoso has also been used for many types of bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections for many years in the tropical countries where it grows. In vitro clinical research on fedegoso leaves over the years has reported active antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimalarial properties.

Picao Preto - Traditional uses:  anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, liver detoxification, anti-inflammatory, diabetes, digestive disorders.  Picão preto is a small, annual herb indigenous to the Amazon. In vitro studies have demonstrated its antibacterial activity against a wide range of bacteria including Klebsiella pneumonia, Bacillus, Tubercule bacillis, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, Salmonella, and Mycobacterium.   Extracts of the leaf also have been documented to have antimycobacterial activity towards Mycobacterium tuberculosis and M. smegmatis. A water extract of the leaf has shown significant anti-yeast activity towards Candida albicans.  Early research, in various in vitro assay systems designed to predict antitumor activity, indicated positive results in the early 1990s. Picão preto first was reported to have antileukemic actions in 1995. Then researchers from Taiwan reported (in 2001) that a simple hot-water extract of picão preto could inhibit the growth of five strains of human and mouse leukemia at less than 200 mcg per ml in vitro. They summarized their research by saying that picão preto ". . . may prove to be a useful medicinal plant for treating leukemia.   A research group in Taiwan reported that a picão preto extract was capable of protecting the liver of rats from various introduced toxins known to cause liver injury. This research group had previously demonstrated picão preto's anti-inflammatory actions in animals a year earlier (in 1995). In 1999, a Brazilian research group confirmed the anti-inflammatory activities in mice and attributed them to an immune modulation effect (noting the extract reduced the amount of pro-inflammatory immune cells in human blood in a previous study).  Other areas of research have validated picão preto's traditional use for ulcers and diabetes. Extracts of the leaf (as well as the entire plant) have clinically shown to protect rats against chemical- and bacteria-induced gastric lesions and ulcers and, also, to reduce gastric acid secretion. The activity noted in these studies was higher than that shown by two prescription anti-ulcer drugs. Other in vivo studies with rats and mice have demonstrated that picão preto has hypoglycemic activity and is able to improve insulin sensitivity which validates its long history in herbal medicine for diabetes. Researchers (in 2000) attributed the plant's hypoglycemic properties to a group of glucoside chemicals found in the aerial parts of the plant.
