4 oz. bottle: $59.50*
Blue Buddha Nectar is based on haritaki, a fruit that is revered in both Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine. It is supported by guduchi, a major rasayana herb that is deeply detoxifying, ashwagandha for stamina, and four more herbs that address immunity, regeneration, and inflammation. It is sweetened with stevia.
Contents: proprietary blend of organic Haritaki fruit (Terminalia chebula), organic Guduchi stem (Tinospora cordifolia), organic Ashwagandha root (Withania somnifera), organic Kachur rhizome (Curcuma zedoaia), organic Oregon grape root (Mahonia aquifolium), organic Baikal Skullcap root (Scutellaria baicalensis), and Stevia leaf (Stevia reboudia) in distilled water, organic alcohol, and vegetable glycerin.
Tinospora cordifolia extracts are extensively used in various herbal preparations for the treatment of different ailments for its anti-periodic, anti-spasmodic, anti-microbial, anti-osteoporotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, anti-allergic, and anti-diabetic properties [Table 1].
The immuomodulatory property of Tinospora cordifolia is well documented.[40–42] Active compounds 11-hydroxymustakone, N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, N-formylannonain, cordifolioside A, magnoflorine, tinocordiside and syringin has been reported to have potential immunomodulatory and cytotoxic effects.[13,40–42] They have been reported to function by boosting the phagocytic activity of macrophages, production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in human neutrophil cells, enhancement in nitric oxide (NO) production by stimulation of splenocytes and macrophages indicative of anti-tumor effects. Aqueous Tinospora extracts has been also reported to influence the cytokine production, mitogenicity, stimulation and activation of immune effector cells. In mice, Tinospora cordifolia extracts has been shown to result in up-regulation of IL-6 cytokine, resulting in acute reactions to injury, inflammation, activation of cytotoxic T cells, and B cell differentiation. Active compounds in aqueous extracts like alkaloids, di-terpenoid lactones, glycosides, steroids, sesquiterpenoid, phenolics, aliphatic compounds or polysaccharides in experimental rat model have been reported for their cytotoxic action. Dry stem crude extracts of Tinospora cordifolia with a polyclonal B cell mitogen, G1-4A on binding to macrophages have been reported to enhance immune response in mice by inducing secretion of IL-1, together with activation of macrophages. Reports on Tinospora cordifolia in prevention of oxidative damage also exist. The (1,4)-alpha-d-glucan (alpha-d-glucan), derived Tinospora cordifolia have been shown to activate human lymphocytes with downstream synthesis of the pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, in vitro. Synergistic effects of compounds in the immunomodulatory activity of Tinospora cordifolia are reported.
