Asparagus Extract Tea contains one half pound of organic asparagus. Asparagus is a natural source of Glutathione, the Master Antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and free radical fighting properties. Asparagus extract is high in folic acid, and may have alkalizing properties on acidic pH. 30 servings.
Asparagus Extract reduces Homocysteine - What is homocysteine? It is an amino acid that causes arteries to harden and thicken, increasing the chance for stroke and atherosclerosis. One study shows that taking a 5-gm pack of Asparagus Extract 2-3 times daily reduced homocysteine levels by 28% in 4 months.
Asparagus Extract regulates Blood Pressure - Many doctors recommend a diuretic as first-line therapy of choice for hypertension. As a well-established natural diuretic, Asparagus Extract can be taken by those with high blood pressure.
Preliminary studies have shown that Asparagus Extract may inhibit the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). ACE inhibitors relax the blood vessels, allowing them to expand and promote blood flow, thereby reducing blood pressure.
Natural Diuretic - One of the main hallmarks of impaired kidney function, symptom-wise, is reduced urine output. When you are unable to urinate, fluids and toxins accumulate in your system, impairing your kidneys and other organs. Since Asparagus Extract is a natural diuretic, it is very helpful for individuals with water retention.
Reduces Creatinine, BUN and Increases GFR - Asparagus Extract can also help normalize creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), urine protein and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Those with kidney failure know that these are important parameters to measure kidney function. Studies and case reports show that Asparagus Extract is effective in lowering creatinine, BUN, and urine protein as well as in increasing creatinine clearance and GFR.
Helps Fight UTIs and Kidney Stones - What’s more? As a natural diuretic and an alkalizing agent, Asparagus Extract is excellent for urinary tract infections (UTIs) and kidney/bladder stones. By maintaining the proper pH level, the formation of stones can be avoided. By increasing urine output, it helps flush the kidneys and dilutes urine to stop the crystallization of stones.
Asparagus Extract's effect on kidney function is illustrated in the following case - R. Rozich, DC from Illinois, has a 60-year-old male diabetic with kidney problems. His GFR was only at 59% while his creatinine level was high. After he taking Kidney Chi and Asparagus Extract for 6 months, both GFR and creatinine improved significantly.
Asparagus Extract Lends Nutritional Support for Cancer Patients - For years, Asparagus has been the subject of many cancer studies because it contains substances with cancer-fighting properties: asparaginase, glutathione, selenium, quercetin, saponins and more.Its cancer-fighting properties range from immune enhancement to telomerase inhibition to restriction of DNA synthesis to topoisomerase inhibition.
Various studies show that Asparagus Extract promotes quality of life among cancer patients and reduces side effects from chemotherapy or radiation. One such study involved 168 lung cancer patients. Results show that 18.75% of patients taking Asparagus Extract + chemotherapy extended survival by over 4 months and over 1 year, among Stage 3 and Stage 2 lung cancer patients, respectively. Only 14.28% of patients on chemotherapy alone experience this result.
Moreover, 59.8% of patients on the combined therapy extended survival by more than 6 months and 2 months among Stage 3 and Stage 2 lung cancer patients, respectively. This is in comparison to 37.5% in the chemotherapy alone group.
