The addition of rosemary and schisandra sphenanthera creates a restorative synergy, which is systemic (affecting the entire system).


Besides its culinary and cosmetic uses, rosemary has many traditional and, as recent research has discovered, new-found medicinal properties.

Current research has uncovered rosemary’s remarkable influence on the prevention of heart disease, cancer, skin damage and liver function. As a diuretic it helps to reduce swelling.

Research has indicated that two ingredients in rosemary, namely caffeic acid and rosemarinic acid are primarily responsible for many of the therapeutic actions of this remarkable plant as they both act as potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents. Their ability to protect and repair cells and to reduce inflammation makes them a vital element in combating heart and liver disease as well as asthma.

The phenolic diterpenes, especially carnosic acid and carnosol reduce inflammation, which has a direct impact on heart disease.

With regards to liver health, rosemary extract has been shown to prevent serious damage by inactivating and eliminating toxins before flushing them from your system. The studies, which were done at the National Institute of Agronomic Research in Dijon found that rosemary stimulated the formation of detoxifying enzymes such as cytochrome P450, glutathione transferase and quinone reductase, which aid in flushing toxins from the liver. By stimulating your liver function, rosemary leaves you feeling healthier and more energetic.

Additionally, the flavonoids contained in rosemary also promote overall health and reduce the risk of disease, particularly cholesterol formation and platelet accumulation.

A word of caution – rosemary should not be taken by pregnant women or those who suffer from high blood pressure or epileptic seizures.

Schisandra Sphenanthera

The final active ingredient, schisandra sphenanthera has been clinically documented to normalize blood pressure, protect the liver, act as a tonic, a detoxifying agent and an adaptogenic. An adaptogenic is a plant which helps to maintain perfect balance within the body and minimise stress.

Studies have shown how amazing schisandra is in treating hepatitis, protecting and regenerating the liver and combating inflammation. As a hepatoprotective agent, it is a powerful detoxifier and protects against poisons that could damage and destroy the liver. In conjunction with this, it also stabilises cell membranes and prevents oxidative cell damage.

As can be seen, rosemary and schisandra share common therapeutic properties while each contribute additional characteristics. The synergy of these pure plant extracts provides a unique and enhanced approach to liver and heart health.
