XtendOvite™ is a plant based supplement with carefully chosen herbs that offer many nutrients and trace minerals that we don’t normally get in our diet. As an example, Cayenne (red peppers) has more vitamin “C” then Oranges, as well as Zinc, Vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6 (pyridoxine). Garlic has Allicin, essential oils, iron, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, zinc, and Vitamins A, B1, B2 and C. Also Hawthorn berries which act as a cardio tonic, rich in bioflavonoids, compounds that are essential for vitamin C function including Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12. NOTE: Hawthorn is an approved cardiac preparation in Germany, certified by the German Commission E. As you can see from just three of the seven herbs, XtendOvite™ is packed with the nutrients our body needs. That is why we recommend taking XtendOvite™ three times per day. To better explain this, an herbalist once told me that “When the cherries are ripe and you smell them, you overindulge at first, then you eat less until your body has had enough and it stores these trace minerals and nutrients until the cherries are ripe again”. That is how we fed ourselves for thousands of years. We have changed how things worked. eXtendOvite
Xtendovite: Herbal Description
General Description: Hawthorn traditionally is used to improve the coronary blood supply, which in turn decreases Angina pain, attacks, and similar complaints. It is also regarded as an herbal tonic for both high and low blood pressure, as well as for tachycardia and arrhythmia. Hawthorn also has antispasmodic and sedative properties, and has mild anti-arteriosclerotic effects.
Hawthorn berries have been used since the Middle Ages t o support the heart and normalize cardiovascular functions. Today hawthorn berries are one of the most valuable medicinal herbs used in the treatment of congestive heart failure and circulatory disorders.
European studies have shown that this botanical increases bloods flow to the heart and brain, protects the heart from irregular beats, enhances the strength of the heart’s contractions and mildly lowers blood pressure. Compounds in hawthorn can help protect the heart against oxygen deprivation, a condition that often leads to angina, a disease marked by intense chest pain
Hawthorn is rich in bioflavonoids, which relaxes and dilate the arteries. These compounds are powerful antioxidants that help increase the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. This reduces the work required by the heart to circulate blood, and in-turn reduces blood pressure and stress to the heart muscle. The bioflavonoid substances give strength to the walls of the blood vessels and improve blood flow to other areas of the body. Components in hawthorn have also been shown to lower cholesterol, and the amount of plaque in the arteries.
Hawthorn normalizes heart action, which benefits the entire body by improving circulation and increasing tolerance for physical exertion. The herb appears to increase the power of the hearts contractions, making the organ more efficient. It helps prevent irregular heartbeats called arrhythmia’s, which can lead to heart attacks.
Hawthorn in combination with other drugs is given for cardiac problems such as palpitations angina and rapid heartbeat. Studies have shown that the herb restores blood pressure to normal, not only lowering high blood pressure but also raising blood pressure that is low.
Hawthorn’s flowers, leaves and berries are all used in herbal supplements. Each is high in flavonoid content, which gives the plant powerful antioxidant properties. Hawthorn contains three groups of compounds which are key to the plant’s positive effects on the cardiovascular system. These constituent groups are the triterpenoid saponins, the amines and the flavonoid by inhibiting free radical formation, hawthorn’s antioxidant activity can be beneficial in maintaining healthy heart vessels and promoting overall heart health.
Hawthorn is also a diuretic, helping to rid the body of excess salt and water and thus supporting weight-loss programs. It has also been used to treat digestive problems, nervous tension, insomnia, and sore throat. Combined with Ginkgo Biloba it works to enhance poor memory by improving circulation of blood within the head and increasing the amount of oxygen to the brain.
The herb is best used long term, because the active constituents do not produce rapid results. The benefits develop slowly, and have a direct effect on the heart itself, especially in cases of heart damage and heart problems associated with liver disease. It is gentle and safe for long-term use with no toxic side effects
Common Use : Helps heart disease and related symptoms. Considered by herbalist to be the world’s best cardiac tonic. Used for beginning heart disease, mild heart-muscle weakness, angina, and arrhythmia. Hawthorn promotes healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels by relaxing blood vessels, increasing metabolism in the heart muscle, and improve blood supply to the heart. Also used for sleeplessness, nervousness, poor digestion, and weight control.
Note: Hawthorn is an approved cardiac preparation in Germany, certified by the German Commission E.
General Description: Garlic traditionally has been used for its effects on the cardiovascular system. It has been shown to help with high Cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and in treating Atherosclerosis.
Garlic is a member of the onion family and is nature’s most versatile medicinal plant. Garlic has been used all over the world for thousands of years for a wide range of conditions. It has been prized since the first records of civilization for its uses in treating wounds, infections, tumors and intestinal parasites.
Modern scientists in numerous clinical trials have concluded that Garlic lowers cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, thins the blood (which reduces your risk of heart attack and stroke) and fights bacteria like an. antibiotic.
Garlic is a potential antioxidant that has been found to inhibit tumor cell formation and is currently being studied by the National Cancer Institute. It may be effective in fighting stomach, skin and colon cancer.
Though it is best known as a culinary herb ad vampire retardant, the medicinal benefits and claims for garlic haven awarded it the name “Wonder Drug among all herbs”.
Modern day research helps explain the broad allocations of this “miracle” herb. Garlic bulbs contain the amino acid Allicin. When crushed, Allicin is released. This chemical element is the component that gives Garlic its strong odor and is responsible for the powerful pharmacological properties of the plant. One medium clove of Garlic can equal the antibacterial action equivalent to 1% penicillin.
Garlic also contains about 0.5% of a volatile oil that is composted of sulfur-containing compounds. Garlic’s sulfur compounds, in addition to Selenium and Vitamins A and C containing compounds, make it a potent antioxidant, protecting cell membranes and DNA from damage and disease.
Although Garlic directly attacks bacteria and viruses, it also stimulates the body’s natural defenses against foreign invaders. Garlic is reported to be more effective than penicillin against typhus disease, and works well against strep, staph bacteria and the organisms responsible for cholera, dysentery and enteritis.
It is generally regarded as a preventative measure for colds, flu and other infectious disease. Furthermore, scientific studies have shown that garlic stimulates the production of the liver’s own detoxifying enzymes which naturalize carcinogens and other environmental toxins. It has also been used to rid the body of intestinal parasite and to treat digestive infections.
Researchers has been studying the anti-cancer properties of Garlic since the 1940’s. It appears that the herb may prevent cells from turning cancerous by enhancing the body’s mechanisms for removing toxic substances. Garlic’s phytochemicals are believed to enhance immunity and the National Cancer Institute (January 1992) reported that people who ate the greatest amount of onions and garlic had the lowest incidence of stomach cancer. Other types of cancer have also been reported as lower.
Furthermore, garlic increases the activity of white blood cells and T-helper cells (natural killer cells), the cells that are central to the activity of the entire immune system.
Garlic supplements can improve many of the processes that can lead to cardiovascular disease. Garlic has been used as a blood thinner and anticoagulant to resolve blood clots and improve circulation. It has been shown to lower cholesterol while increasing the level of beneficial HDL’s (high density lipoproteins), the so-called good cholesterol.
Garlic has no side effects like those associated with cholesterol lowering drugs. (Take garlic for at least two to three months, as often in the first month or two, cholesterol may actually slightly rise.) In addition, garlic compounds gently lower blood pressure by slowing the production of the body’s own blood pressure raising hormones. At least seventeen clinical trials have shown that mild hypertension can be effectively managed with garlic.
Garlic has a great value as a long-term dietary supplement, helping to maintain healthy circulation, balance blood sugar and pressure, reduce fat levels in the blood, and improve resistance to infection. It can be taken with conventional antibiotics to support their action and ward off side effects.
Garlic has also been used in treating upper respiratory infections (especially bronchitis), late-onset diabetes, urinary infections, acne, asthma, sinusitis, arthritis and ulcers.
Common Use: Good for virtually any disease or infection. Improves circulation, maintains healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels. A natural antibiotic and immune system stimulant.
General Description: Bilberry has demonstrated it can protect the heart in a number of ways including: acting as an anti-inflammatory, inhibiting Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), and improving circulation.
Bilberry is a perennial, ornamental shrub that is commonly found in various climates in damp woodlands and moorlands. In the United States they are known as huckleberries, and there are over 100 species with similar names and fruit throughout Europe, Asia and North America. Bilberry has been used as a medicinal herb since the 16th century.
Bilberry is also used in connection with vascular and blood disorders and shows positive effects when treating varicose veins, thrombosis, and angina. Bilberry’s fruit contains flavonoids and anthocyanin , which serve to prevent capillary fragility, thin the blood, and stimulates the release of vasodilators. Anthocyanin, a natural antioxidant, also lowers blood pressure, reduces clotting and improves blood supply to the nervous system. Bilberry also contains glucoquinine that has the ability to lower blood sugar.
The herb contains Vitamins A and C, providing antioxidant protection which can help prevent free radical damage to the eyes. Vitamin A is required for sharp vision, while Vitamin C helps form collagen and is needed for growth and repair of tissue cells and blood vessels. Anthocyanosides support and protect collagen structures in the blood vessels of the eyes, assuring strong, healthy capillaries that carry vital nutrients to eye muscles and nerves.
Bilberry has long been a remedy for poor vision and “night blindness.”
General Description: Ginkgo Biloba can help to restore sufficient blood flow to the limbs and brain to restore overall health.
The ginkgo is the oldest living tree species, geological records indicates this plant has been growing on earth for 150-200 million years. Chinese monks are credited with keeping the tree in existence, as a sacred herb. It was first brought to Europe in the 1700’s and it is now a commonly prescribed drug in France and Germany. It is one of the most well-researched herbs in the world.
In the last 30 years, more than 300 studies have given clinical evidence that ginkgo prevents and benefits many problems throughout the entire body. Ginkgo is gaining recognition as a brain tonic that enhances memory because of its positive effects on the vascular system, especially in the cerebellum. It is also used as a treatment for vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and a variety of neurological disorders and circulation problems. Ginkgo may help to counteract the effect of aging, including mental fatigue and lack of energy.
Ginkgo works by increasing blood flow to the brain and throughout the body’s network of blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the organ systems. It increases metabolism efficiency, regulates neurotransmitters, and boosts oxygen levels in the brain which uses 20% of the body’s oxygen.
Benefits of enhanced circulation in the brain include improved short and long term memory, increased reaction time and improved mental clarity. Ginkgo is often used to treat elderly persons with Alzheimer’s and other symptoms and cerebral insufficiency. Cerebral insufficiency is a general term for a collection of symptoms that include difficulties of concentration and memory, absentmindedness, confusion, lack of energy, depressive mood, anxiety, dizziness, tinnitus, and headache.
Ginkgo constituents are beneficial for a variety of imbalances ad deterioration in the brain and body. Standardized ginkgo extract inhibits platelet activity factor (PAF), which is a common allergen in the body. Physical stress, and poor quality food can over stimulate PAF production, in other words, blood clotting. Excessive PAF can help cardiovascular disease, brain damage, hearing disorders and other immune and inflammatory disease.
Ginkgo has been used to relieve tension and anxiety and improve mental alertness, elevate mood and restore energy.
Ginkgo has two groups of active substances, flavonoids and terpene lactones, including ginkgolides A, B, and C, bilobalide, quercetin, and kaempferol. The ginkgolides have been shown to control allergic inflammation, anaphylactic shock and asthma.
Ginkgo also acts as a powerful antioxidant and contributes to the oxidation of free radicals which are believed to contribute to premature aging and dementia. Antioxidants also protect the eyes, cardiovascular system ad central nervous system.
Ginkgo may also help control the transformation of cholesterol to plaque associated with the hardening of arteries, and can relax constricted blood vessels.
The herb has been used in treatment of other circulation-related disorders such as diabetic peripheral vascular disease. Raynaud’s syndrome, hemorrhoids and varicose veins. It can also raid in the treatment of insufficient circulation and complications from stroke and skull injuries. Ginkgo’s beneficial effects on the circulatory system also can be of benefit in the treatment of eye and ear disorders.
Studies have confirmed that ginkgo increases blood flow to the retina, and can slow retinal deterioration resulting in an increase of visual acuity. In clinical tests ginkgo has improved hearing loss in the elderly. It also improves circulation in the extremities relieving cold hands and feet, swelling in the limbs and chronic arterial blockage. Among other things, ginkgo is being investigated as a potential treatment to prevent the rejection of transplanted organs, as a treatment for asthma and for toxic shock syndrome.
Common Use : Ginkgo has been shown to be nutritional support for mental alertness, enhanced vitality level, circulatory health and blood vessel health. Its high antioxidant activity is valuable for fighting age related conditions. All over the world, people have claimed Ginkgo to be beneficial in the fight against the gradual erosion of energy associated with aging.
General Description: Used traditionally Cayenne is a general stimulant affecting the gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems and generally contributes to overall good health.
Description: Cayenne (C. Frutescens proper) takes it’s name from the Greek word meaning “to bite”. This refers to its hot, burning taste. The pepper has long been used both in cooking and medicine. The most commonly used variety was brought from India to Britain in 1548. It grows as a perennial shrub with red pod-like fruit. This is the Cayenne pepper itself, from which oil and seeds are extracted for use.
Cayenne originated in Central and South America where it was extensively used by the natives for many diseases, including diarrhea and cramps.
Cayenne is considered a superior crisis herb, useful as a first aid remedy for most conditions. Taken as a daily tonic, it is of benefit for the heart and circulation, preventing heart attacks, strokes, colds, flu, diminished vitality, headaches, indigestion, depression and arthritis.
History: American Indians cultivated the chili pepper for centuries, for medicinal uses as well as culinary. The plant was first mentioned in western literature by a physician named Diego Alvarez Chanca who encountered it when he traveled with Columbus on his second voyage to the West Indies in 1494.
Today, Cayenne is listed in many world pharmacopoeias (official drug list) and the American Physicians’ Desk Reference includes several prescription drugs that contain the herb.
Uses of Cayenne: Dr Richard Schulze, a medical herbalist who studied with Dr John Christopher, says of Cayenne: “If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other. There is no other herb that increases your blood flow faster than cayenne.
Dr Christopher himself had plenty to say about Cayenne, giving it credit for his own amazing change in health. For most of his life, up to the age 35, he suffered badly from – amongst other complaints – severe hardening of the arteries. In fact he had been told by medical doctors that he would not live beyond his 40th birthday. At 45, 10 years after he started to take Cayenne on a daily basis, a medical examiner told him he had the venous structure of a teenage boy! He passed the medical examination with a clean bill of health.
Blood and Circulation
Cayenne stimulates blood flow – instantly. It dilates arterial walls and cuts through mucus in the veins, thus increasing circulation to the extremities and helping overall to lower blood pressure. It strengthens the heart, arteries, capillaries and the nerves. Over time it will thin the blood if it’s too thick. In the world, a big problem is high cholesterol, which makes the blood too thick, giving the heart a harder job. Cayenne also regulates blood flow effectively so circulation throughout the body is even, and there is no excessive pressure in any one part.
General Description: Milk Thistle traditionally is used to promote liver tissue regeneration for health enhancement.
This plant is native to Mediterranean and grows wild throughout Europe, North America and Australia. Milk Thistle has been used in Europe as a remedy for liver problems for thousand of years. It’s use was recorded in the first century (AD 23-79), noting that the plant was excellent for protecting the liver. Early Christian tradition dedicated milk thistle to Mary, calling it Marian thistle. In the 19thh century the Eclectics used the herb for varicose veins, menstrual difficulty, and congestion in the liver, spleen and kidneys. Milk thistle has also been taken to increase breast-milk production, stimulate the secretion of bile, and as a treatment for depression.
Milk thistle nutritionally supports the liver’s ability to maintain normal liver function. It has shown positive effects in treating nearly every known form of liver disease, including cirrhosis, hepatitis, necroses, and liver damage due to drug and alcohol abuse. Milk thistle works due to its ability to inhibit the factors responsible for liver damage, couple with the fact it stimulates production of new liver cells to replace old damaged ones.
Milk thistle has been proven to protect the liver from damage. The detrimental effects of environmental toxins, alcohol, drugs and chemotherapy may be countered with this valuable herb. The active chemical component in the herb is silybin, which functions as an antioxidant and is one of the most potent liver protective agents known. Clinical trials have proven silybin to be effective in treating chronic liver disease and in protecting the liver from toxic chemicals. An injection of silybin is a proven antidote for poisoning with the Death cap mushroom (Amanita phalloides.)
Silybin is a part of the chemical structure of the flavoligan silymarine. Milk thistle’s hepatoprotective effects may be explained by its function of altering the liver cell membrane structure, blocking the absorption of toxins into the cells. Hepatoprotection by silymarin can also be attributed to its ability to increase the intracellular concentration of glutathione, a substance required for detoxicating reaction in liver cells. Milk thistle is also an antioxidant that is more potent than Vitamin C and E.
Common use : Helps the liver detoxification process. For all liver disorders such as jaundice and hepatitis. Fights pollutants and prevents free radical damage by action as antioxidant. Protects the liver and stimulates the production f new liver cells. Helps common skin conditions related to poor liver functions.
Traditional use of Valerian has been for relief of sleeplessness, nervousness and edginess, usually the result of overwork and stress which inevitably leads to chronic fatigue. Working together with the other ingredients, Valerian provides a calming effect allowing the other herbs to work more effectively. Provides inhibition of reflex hypersensitivity and helps to maintain neuro-coronary equilibrium, Contains Valepotriates and Valerenic Acids which have sedative and anticonvulsant activity, Helps maintain levels of GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid), Can have direct neurotropic effects on higher centers of the central nervous system, Has been effective in the treatment of tachycardia preceding sleep, Has been observed to act as an anticonvulsant, and antiarrhythmetic, and Regulates the Autonomic Nervous System, Psychosomatic Disorders and relieve tension and restlessness.
