DEAL OF THE WEEK: NRx Graviola Extract – 500mg 60 Caps



Graviola is indigenous to most of the warmest tropical areas in South and North America, including the Amazon. The fruit is sold in local markets in the tropics, where it is called guanábana or graviola. The fruit pulp is excellent for making drinks and sherbets and, though slightly sour-acid, can be eaten out of hand.

All parts of the graviola tree are used in natural medicine, including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and seeds. Different uses are attributed to the different parts of the tree. The fruit and juice are taken for intestinal worms and parasites, to cool fevers, to increase mother’s milk after childbirth, for relief from diarrhea and dysentery. The seeds are crushed and then used to fight parasites, head lice, and worms. The bark, leaves, and roots are considered a sedative, antispasmodic, hypotensive, and nervine. Tea is made for various disorders using these parts of the tree.

Graviola has been used in herbal medicine for centuries. In the Peruvian Andes, a leaf tea is used for catarrh (inflammation of mucous membranes) and the crushed seed is used to kill parasites. In the Peruvian Amazon, the bark, roots, and leaves are used for diabetes and as a sedative and antispasmodic. Tribes in Guyana use a leaf and/or bark tea as a sedative and heart tonic. In the Brazilian Amazon a leaf tea is used for liver problems, and the oil of the leaves and unripe fruit is mixed with olive oil and used externally for neuralgia, rheumatism, and arthritis pain. In Jamaica, Haiti, and the West Indies the fruit and/or fruit juice is used for fevers, parasites and diarrhea; the bark or leaf is used as an antispasmodic, sedative, and nervine for heart conditions, coughs, flu, difficult childbirth, asthma, hypertension and parasites.

Common names used for Graviola are: Graviola, soursop, Brazilian paw paw, guanábana, guanábano, guanavana, guanaba, corossol épineux, huanaba, toge-banreisi, durian benggala, nangka blanda and cachiman épineux.

Anxious? Mildly depressed? Stressed out? Rhodiola Rosea Extract is a natural herb that can help regulate mood and help cope with the everyday stresses of life. Rhodiola has been used for thousands of years to help deal with stressful conditions in Siberia.

Traditional folk medicine used R. rosea to increase physical endurance, work productivity, longevity, resistance to high altitude sickness, and to treat fatigue, depression, anemia, impotence, gastrointestinal ailments, infections, and nervous system disorders. In mountain villages of the Republic of Georgia, a bouquet of roots is still given to couples prior to marriage to enhance fertility and assure the birth of healthy children. In Middle Asia, R. rosea tea was the most effective treatment for cold and flu during severe Asian winters. Mongolian doctors prescribed it for tuberculosis and cancer. For centuries, only family members knew where to harvest the wild “golden roots” and the methods of extraction. Siberians secretly transported the herb down ancient trails to the Caucasian Mountains where it was traded for Georgian wines, fruits, garlic, and honey. Chinese emperors sent expeditions to Siberia to bring back the “golden root” for medicinal preparations.

Pine Bark Extract and Pycnogenol

Pinus_pinasterOne of the most often asked questions we get is: What is the difference between Pycnogenol and Pine Bark Extract?

Pine Bark Extract (Pinus pinaster) is harvested from maritime pine tree bark. Though there haven’t been many clinical studies at this time, early lab results show possible benefits such as:

  • Pine Bark Extract may lower the blood sugar levels of some diabetic patients.
  • Pine Bark Extract possibly reduces swelling from a circulation disorder called chronic venous insufficiency.
  • Pine Bark Extract may have antioxidant properties.

The active ingredient in Pine Bark Extract is a naturally-occuring chemical called proanthocyanidins. There are many brands that contain this chemical (in differing compounds) and they all serve the same essential function.

So what’s the difference?
Pycnogenol is a registered brand name that refers to the same chemical harvested using a method patented in 1951 by Dr. Jacques Masquelier. Pycnogenol is Pine Bark Extract harvested from a tree in France in such a way that it costs four or five times as much as other brands.
