Your tincture is the best I’ve ever used!! Amy W., ME
Keep viruses and bacteria at bay this winter! Here’s an awesome stocking stuffer and/or gift that can help your loved ones (and you) stay healthy.
The anti-microbial properties of Japanese Knotweed and Chaga tinctures are potent virus and bacteria fighting additions to your immune boosting toolkit. Fayston Forager tinctures are made with the highest quality, ethically and sustainably Vermont wild-harvested Japanese Knotweed and Chaga. There are no fillers, and only the parts of the plant with the highest medicinal value are used. This is achieved through meticulous hand-harvesting and hand-processing, resulting in very vibrant, effective tinctures.
“The Japanese Knotweed Tincture is amazing! It absolutely killed a cold I felt coming on twice!” Lori K., VT
This NIH study says, “In summary, this study identifies P. cuspidatumas (polygonum cuspidatum or Japanese Knotweed) the potential broad-spectrum inhibitor for the treatment of coronaviruses infections.”
Timothy Lee Scott (2010), in his book Invasive Plant Medicine, notes that Japanese Knotweed (polygonum cuspidatum) “(It) contains the compounds resveratrol, trans-resveratrol, polydatin, and emodian, which have been shown to possess antimicrobial, anti-infalmmatory, antioxidant, and regenerative properties, and is very good at ridding the body of deep infections and toxins, especially in hard-to-reach places.” (p. 228)
This NIH study analyzed the antiviral activities of resveratrol against MERS-CoV infection. The study found that resveratrol is a potent anti-MERS agent in vitro and can be a potential antiviral agent against MERS-CoV infection in the near future.
Stephen Buhner, author of Healing Lyme, and Herbal Antivirals has developed a protocol for this new coronavirus. Japanese Knotweed (polygonum cuspidatum) is an important component, along with other herbs.
I typically don’t promote Chaga much due to the simple fact that it’s not abundant, though Chaga also packs a powerful anti-viral punch, and much more.
This NIH study says, “The results showed that Chaga could be an effective natural antiviral that can supplement the current anti-SARS-CoV-2 drugs.”
Another NIH study says this about Chaga (I. obliquus): “We showed that the continuous intake of the I. obliquus extract can potentially suppress cancer development through the maintenance of the body temperature. In addition, middle-aged mice drinking the I. obliquus extract exhibited body weight loss. Our findings suggest that the aqueous extract of I. obliquus could be used as a natural product for cancer suppression and general health care.“
