Gromwell-root

Gromwell Root

Gromwell (Lithospermum erythrorhizon) is an herbaceous plant with powerful medicinal properties, widely used in modern and traditional Eastern healing practices. The root is the most commonly used part of the plant.

Reduce Inflammation: The first recorded medicinal use of the root appeared in the ancient Chinese medical text, The Divine Farmer’s Materia Medica, 200 – 250 CE. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, its been used to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and detoxify. 1

Skin Soothing: Historically, Gromwell root has been used to treat skin lesions like psoriasis, eczema, hives, dermatitis, measles, smallpox, and rashes. Gromwell root has been cultivated in Japan for both its medicinal properties and to make a highly valued red-purple dye. In the European herbal tradition, Gromwell seed and root were used topically as poultices for skin issues. Some Indigenous North American tribes chewed it as a treatment for sinus infections and colds, drank it for contraceptive assistance, and they used it as a topical treatment for infections. 2

Purifying Ally: Gromwell Root is a purifying ally that has detoxifying, blood purifying, and skin healing effects. Gromwell root is sweet in taste and has been shown to be antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory. 3

 

lecithin

Lecithin

Lecithin is another key ingredient in Tollovid™. Lecithin is a substance that’s naturally found in the tissues of your body. It’s made up of fatty acids, and it has a variety of commercial and medical uses. Lecithin works as an emulsifier, meaning it suspends fats and oils and keeps them from mixing with other substances.

Reduces Cholesterol: Lecithin has a pretty powerful impact on cholesterol. In a 2010 study, participants took a 500 milligram lecithin supplement on the daily for 2 months. It reduced total cholesterol levels by 42% and LDL levels by 56.15%.

Supports Immune Function: Soy lecithin might bolster your immune system, especially if you have diabetes. One study found that daily lecithin supplements increased lymphocytes (natural killer cells) in diabetic rats by 92%. It also increased macrophage activity by 29% in nondiabetic rats. (Macrophages are white blood cells that fight cancer cells, microbes, and debris.)

Digestive Aid: Lecithin might ease inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) symptoms. The fat contains phosphatidylcholine (PC), which helps protect the colon from inflammation and bacteria. A small 2010 study found that lecithin supplements reduced bowel inflammation in folks with ulcerative colitis by 50%. Lecithin might also help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), but more research is needed.
