St. John’s wort
- The main pharmacological effect of St. John’s wort - the impact on the level of serotonin in the central nervous system, which determines the antidepressant properties of plants, primarily due to hypericin
- St. John’s wort can be considered as herbal anti-depressant and used in conditions associated with neurotic disorders, with a climax
- The plant also has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, astringent, antiseptic and regenerative properties, so its use is effective in the treatment of ulcers, abscesses, burns, pyoderma, rhinitis, sinusitis, sores, hemorrhoids, diseases ofthe respiratory and genitourinary systems
- St. John’s wort stimulates the appetite
- Stimulates the secretory activity of various glands, including the digestive, has acholeretic effect
- St. John’s wort can be used in the treatment of vitiligo
- Raw horehound (flowers) contains glycosides, bioflavonoids, essential oils, diterpenoids(balotenol, ballotinon) and others. Horehound has sedative, tranquilizing, antiemetic,astringent, antispasmodic, antiarrhythmic, diuretic, antiseptic, wound-healing effect.
- It is used as a sedative for:
- nervous excitement
- painful periods
- dyspepsia in the nervous system
- in the treatment of hysteria, and some other diseases
- it is used for rheumatism, joint and muscle pains
- Hawthorn is rich in amino acids and minerals, particularly magnesium. In medicine, hawthorn is used in functional disorders of the cardiovascular and nervous system as a cardiotonic, antiarrhythmic, antihypertensive, antiatherosclerotic, antispasmodic, sedative
- It normalizes the rhythm of the heart, improves coronary circulation, has a positive effect on metabolic processes in the myocardium.
- Hawthorn is used for chronic heart conditions — primarily congestive heart failure, but also angina and arrhythmias. Chemicals in hawthorn act directly on the heart muscle to increase the force of heartbeats and on the blood vessels to relax the arteries around the heart. It may also lengthen the time that the heart rests between beats. Hawthorn also works indirectly by widening blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. As a result, it may help to lower blood pressure
- Hawthorn helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and inhibits the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, has a pronounced antioxidant effect, lowers blood pressure, urine output increases
- Used in cardiovascular diseases: coronary heart disease after myocardial infarction, hypertension, arrhythmia, atherosclerosis prevention, as well as increased nervous irritability, insomnia
- Magnesium is need for more than 300 biochemical processes in the body
- It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong
- Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis
- There is increased recognition of the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes
- Magnesium has a cardioprotective effect, providing a beneficial effect on heart rhythm disturbances, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, improving myocardial oxygen supply
- Exhibits vasodilator effect and helps reduce blood pressure
- Magnesium is an anti-stress macro-elements, has a normalizing effect on the nervous system and its higher parts (especially in combination with vitamin B6) with nervous tension, depression, neurosis
- Magnesium in diabetes prevents cardiovascular complications and, in combination with zinc, chromium, selenium improves the function of beta cells of the pancreas
- In diseases of the respiratory system enhances the removal of the bronchi and bronchospasm. In both cases, magnesium is an important factor in therapy (in combination with fixed assets)
- Magnesium has a positive impact on the reproductive system. In pregnant women, magnesium deficiency prevents the development of the fruit (along with folic and pantothenic acid), the development of gestosis, premature births and miscarriages
- At the time of menopause in women reduces the negative manifestations of this condition
- Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) increases the body’s resistance to infectious diseases, regulates reductive-oxidative processes, carbohydrate exchange, blood coagulation and the regeneration of tissues.
- Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects the eyes, heart, and circulatory systems against free radicals.
- Ascorbic acid is required for collagen synthesis and has a structural role in bone, cartilage and teeth.
- Vitamin C may help decrease total and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as increase HDL levels.
- Vitamin C may protect against cardiovascular disease.
- As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C may help to fight cancer by protecting healthy cells from free-radical damage and inhibiting the proliferation of cancerous cells.
- Vitamin C may be useful as an immune stimulator and modulator.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)
- Thiamin works with the other B vitamins to change protein, carbohydrate, and fat to energy.
- It is especially vital for changing carbohydrates to energy.
- It is a key factor in the healthy functioning of all the body’s cells, especially the nerves.
- It is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system. As a coenzyme, thiamin plays a key role in energy production, conversion of glucose to fat. Every cell of the body requires vitamin B1 to form the fuel the body runs on — ATP.
- Nerve cells require vitamin B1 in order to function normally.
- Thiamin is needed for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fat, and protein. It is especially involved in carbohydrate metabolism in the brain.
- Thiamin may be used to support nerve health, and minimize numbness and tingling, helping to protect against this condition.
- Thiamine aids the nervous system and is essential for the functioning of important enzymes. These enzymes have vital roles in the processes that make energy available in the body.
- Thiamine is essential for the transmission of certain types of nerve signal between the brain and the spinal cord.
- Depression, poor memory, muscle weakness and stiffness, nerve tingling, burning sensation and numbness, tiredness, headache, loss of appetite and nausea are some of the symptoms and signs of its deficiency.
- Vitamin B6 supports more vital bodily functions than any other vitamin.
- Vitamin B6 allows the amino acids to be synthesized, broken down and absorbed.
- The forming of histamine, serotonin, dopamine and adrenaline are dependent on vitamin B6.
- Vitamin B6 is required for the production of serotonin and helps to maintain healthy immune system functions, to protect the heart from cholesterol deposits, and to prevent kidney stone formation.
- Vitamin B6 is indicated for the treatment of anemia, neurologic disturbances, seborrhoeic dermatitis, and cheilosis.
- In combination with folic acid and vitamin B12, vitamin B6 lowers homocysteine levels which is an amino acid linked to heart disease and stroke, and possibly other diseases as well, such as osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
- Pyridoxine is required for the balancing of hormonal changes in women as well as assisting the immune system and the growth of new cells.
- Vitamin B6 may be helpful in some women with premenstrual disorder, also known as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and may be useful in some cases of gestational diabetes and for protection against metabolic imbalances associated with the use of some oral contraceptives.
- Vitamin B6 promotes iron excretion and this has been used as a rationale for treatment in iron storage diseases.
- Vitamin B12′s main functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenence of a healthy nervous system.
- Vitamin B12 is an especially important vitamin for maintaining healthy nerve cells and it aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body’s genetic material. Cyanocobalamin works to promote normal growth and development, helps with certain types of nerve damage, and treats pernicious anemia.
- Nerves are surrounded by an insulating fatty sheath comprised of a complex protein called myelin. B12 plays a vital role in the metabolism of fatty acids essential for the maintainence of myelin. Prolonged B12 deficiency can lead to nerve degeneration and irreversible neurological damage.
- Vitamin B12 is essential for the proper production of blood platelets and red and white blood cells, the manufacture of vital substances needed for cell function, and the metabolism of nutrients necessary for cell growth.
- It participates in a variety of cellular reactions to release energy from carbohydrates, fats and protein.
- Vitamin B12 helps maintain the myelin sheath that insulates nerve fibres from each other. People with vitamin B12 deficiency show irregular destruction of the myelin sheaths, which eventually causes paralysis and death.
- Vitamin B12 levels decrease with age and various measures of cognitive impairment are associated with reduced B12 status.
- The most important use of vitamin B12 is to treat the symptoms of pernicious anemia.
- Vitamin B9 (folate) and vitamin B12 are critical to the health of the nervous system and to a process that clears homocysteine from the blood.
- Vitamins B12, B6, and B9 (folate) work closely together to control blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine.
- Elevated plasma homocysteine concentrations are considered to be a risk factor for vascular disease and birth defects such as neural tube defects.
