Ingredients used in Paratrex™

Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth (organic, fresh water-food grade) -

DE is an abbreviation of the words "Diatomaceous Earth," which is a fossilized deposit of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called Diatoms. These plants inhabit all the waters of the earth, and serve as the basic food for aquatic life, just as grass is the basic food for land animals. The razor sharp edges of the diatoms in Diatomaceous Earth discourage unhealthy colonization of the intestinal tract. This ingredient has been used to promote intestinal health and to help the body in its fight against intruders without the use of chemicals. Because of its sharp edges, this ingredient helps break up unwanted debris and cut through the physical defenses of intestinal intruders.

Please note, DE will not hurt beneficial bacteria. "Ingestion of diatomaceous earth is not toxic to mammals. Rats fed a daily diet containing 5% freshwater diatomaceous earth show no abnormalities after 90 days (Bertke 1964). Dairy farms sometimes feed their animals food containing 1 to 2% diatomaceous earth to control internal [organisms] (Allen 1972). Impoverished humans add "fossil flour" to their baked goods in order to stretch their flour supply (Cummins 1975)."

Organically Certified Black Walnut Hull from Green Hull (Juglans regia) -

Ancient Greeks and Romans used Black Walnut Hull to promote intestinal health and beneficial microbial activity. Asian Peoples have also used the kernel and the green hull to help promote cleansing of the intestinal tract. The high tannin content of this ingredient is primarily responsible for its beneficial properties; although other constituents such as juglandin, juglone and juglandic acid are also most likely involved. Black Walnut is thought to have the ability to oxygenate the blood, which creates a state believed to be hostile to invasive organisms. The green husk contains organic iodine. Iodine is known to have properties which help produce an intestinal environment hostile to harmful bacteria. Black Walnut has been used to promote healthy sugar levels, to help melt away fatty materials, and to detoxify the colon. Black Walnut is also useful for helping maintain an internal condition that is unfavorable to fungi.

Organically Certified Grapefruit Seed Extract (Citrus Paradise) -

Grapefruit Seed Extract is a biologically active botanical extract derived from the seeds and pulp of wild-crafted grapefruit. Grapefruit seed extract contains the following minerals: phosphorus, potassium, iron and sodium, magnesium and all of the vitamin B group, especially biotin which is an important nutrient for the utilization of dietary body fats. The active ingredient (citricidal) of grapefruit seed extract has been known to have the unique ability to safely and effectively help boost internal health. Citricidal is also said to effectively help create an environment that is not friendly for intestinal invaders.


Organically Certified Wormwood Extract (Artemisia absinthium) -

Historically wormwood has been used as an intestinal cleanser and a medicinal herb. References to Wormwood go back as far as 1600 BC in Egypt. In Paratrex™ it helps create an extremely hostile environment for certain types of invaders. It has also been known to promote healthy digestive processes and help promote increased secretions of the liver and gallbladder.


Wild-Crafted Male Fern Root (Dryopteris filix-mas) -

According to history, Male Fern Root has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb to promote digestive health and as an aid in cleansing bodily systems. Researchers have determined that the oil of the male fern root contains the chemicals filicin, filmarone, and oleoreson. These chemicals help establish an intestinal environment that is toxic and debilitating to certain intestinal invaders helping promote digestive health.


Wild-Crafted American Worm Seed (Chenopodium ambrosioides L.) -

The oil of chenopodium, derived from the seeds and other overground parts of wormseed, is an excellent ingredient for any product designed to promote an intestinal environment that is unfavorable to intruders. Before being popularized in the 19th century in America by the medical establishment, American Worm Seed was frequently used by the Native Americans to promote digestive health. Wormseed is also said to have properties that help remove intestinal irritants to the colon wall that can cause spasms. Wormwood contains up to 90% ascaridol, an ingredient that is very useful for promoting a hostile environment to would-be intestinal intruders.


Bromelain -

Bromelain was first introduced in 1957 as an important proteolytic enzyme that supplements the body's natural enzymes. Bromelain, like all proteolytic enzymes, decomposes harmful proteins in the body. Scientific literature contains over 600 research articles about Bromelain. It is derived from the pineapple plant and is useful in supporting the body's natural recovery mechanisms following physical stress occurring during strenuous activities, and as general digestive aid.


Wild-Crafted Kamala (Mallotus Philippinensis {MUELL.}) -

Kamala has been traditionally used to help cleanse and flush the intestines of harmful substances. It is known to act quickly and effectively.

Organically Certified Clove -

Has been used for many years to help aid the body. It's believed to have natural detoxifying qualities and to help promote an environment hostile to harmful intestinal bacteria.
