The essential oil from the leaves and twigs are employed in aromatherapy for relief of cough, colds, and congestion, and topically for its antiseptic action.  Native to Australia, steam-distilled tea tree oil has a history of use among its indigenous people dating back centuries. Employed primarily for its antibacterial properties, the complex mosaic of volatile compounds also exhibits antiviral and antifungal activities. Pathogenic bacteria including Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus are among the microorganisms it’s effective against, with promising results for the opportunistic yeast Candida albicans as well. The mechanism of action is similar for both bacteria and yeast: Volatile components within tea tree oil compromise the structure and selective permeability of the cell membrane. This process also denatures proteins within the cells, leading to their death, and more importantly their ability to multiply and spread throughout the body.

New Roots Herbals New Roots Adrenal... from $16.00
Adrenal concentrate is an excellent source of gland-specific nutrients formulated to support adrenal health. The adrenal cortex helps to maintain the water and sodium homeostasis (balance) within the body; it also contributes to carbohydrate metabolism and the regulation of blood sugar. The adrenal cortex further produces a sex hormone similar to that secreted by the testes. The medulla of the adrenal gland produces the hormone epinephrine, also called adrenaline, when the body is under stress; this hormone speeds up the rate of metabolism in order to help it cope with stressful situations. The performance of the adrenal glands is most often impaired due to extensive use of cortisone therapy for nonendocrine diseases, such as arthritis and asthma. Long-term use of cortisone drugs also causes the adrenal gland to shrink in size. Pituitary disease and tuberculosis also lead to adrenocortical failure. New Roots Herbal’s Adrenal concentrate nourishes the adrenal gland with nutrients which help it cope with the challenges of our modern high-stress environment. New Roots Herbal’s Adrenal concentrate is made from toxin-free lyophilized glands. The term “lyophilized” refers to a freeze-drying process in the raw state, which provides the highest level of biological activity. DIRECTIONS OF USE Adults: Take 1 capsule daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner. If you are taking other medications, take this product a few hours before or after them. Duration of use:Consult a health-care practitioner for prolonged use. WARNINGS Contains no: Gluten, soy, wheat, eggs, dairy, yeast, citrus, preservatives, artificial flavour or colour, starch, or sugar. Cautions and warnings: Consult a health-care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not use if you have hypokalemia, high blood pressure, or a kidney or cardiovascular disorder. Do not use if seal is broken. Keep out of reach of children. INGREDIENTS Each vegetable capsule contains: Adrenal gland 3:1 concentrate (from domestic pig [Sus scrofa]) 200 mg Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 6 mg Other ingredients: Peppermint (Mentha × piperita) leaf, microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide in a non‑GMO vegetable capsule composed of vegetable carbohydrate gum and purified water.
New Roots Herbals New Roots Amino-M... $30.00
Amino-Mix is an excellent source of natural amino acids, the building blocks of life. New Roots Herbal’s Amino‑Mix is made from 100% pure pharmaceutical-grade lactalbumine hydrolysate for maximal protein utilization. Each tablet provides the optimal mix of free-form di- and tripeptide amino acids. Amino‑Mix is a scientifically balanced source of both essential and nonessential amino acids. Amino‑Mix should be taken with a complete multivitamin, such as New Roots Herbal’s Multi‑Max or Multi‑Max Immune, as amino acids are dependent on vitamins and minerals to work. Amino acids are organic molecules that form the basic constituents of proteins. Proteins are simply collections of large particles of accumulated links of peptides (or polypeptides). In the digestion process, proteins are broken down, in a process called hydrolyzation, from polypeptides to smaller oligopeptides, then to dipeptides or tripeptides, which are made up of two or three links of specific amino acids, called free-form amino acids, that are finally absorbed into the bloodstream. Therefore, we can see that amino acids are, quite simply, the most basic building blocks of proteins. Typically, discussions of amino acids revolve around about 20 or so amino acids that are involved in body function. Of these, eight (some say 10) are deemed to be essential due to the facts that: 1) the body cannot make them, therefore they must be taken in from an external source; and 2) the body cannot survive with a deficiency of any one of them. The essential amino acids are leucine, isoleucine, valine, methionine, lysine, threonine, phenylalanine, and tryptophan. The first three (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) are commonly referred to as “branched-chain amino acids” and are of particular importance due to their ability to provide the body with about 70% of its nitrogen needs. Studies have shown that a shortage of branched-chain amino acids, coupled with increased physical demands on the body, can lead to a cannibalization of muscle tissue to respond to the body’s need for nitrogen. Free-form amino acids are made up of high-grade individual amino acids. This form of amino acid needs no digestion and passes directly into the bloodstream to provide a hard-training athlete with amino acids for tissue repair and muscle hypertrophy. (Predigested amino acids have relatively low absorption and lack any amount of natural tryptophan.) In the human body, amino acids not only form the building blocks of our voluntary, or skeletal, muscle tissue—such as the biceps, quadriceps, etc.—, but they also form the building blocks of our involuntary muscles—such as the heart. In addition to this muscle-building function, each individual amino acid has a specific function in the body; these functions include assisting in transporting long-chain triglycerides and dietary fat into the cells for energy; stimulating the pituitary to secrete growth hormone, which is involved in developing lean muscle tissue as well as mobilizing fatty acids from the adipose tissue; and—importantly—supplying the body with nitrogen. One of the more controversial topics regarding amino acids today is capsule absorption versus the value of using tablets. In past years, capsules definitely proved to have a quicker entry time into the system; however, this is no longer true: due to advances in tabulating technology, using magnesium stearate, the modern tablet today can actually dissolve faster than capsules. DIRECTIONS OF USE Adults: Take 3–4 tablets twice daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner. Duration of use: Consult a health-care practitioner for use beyond 6 months. WARNINGS Contains no: Gluten, soy, wheat, eggs, yeast, citrus, preservatives, artificial flavour or colour, or starch. Cautions and warnings: Do not use in case of a known allergy to cow’s milk.

New Roots Herbals New Roots Ashwaga... $16.00
New Roots Ashwagandha Extract · 500 mg · 5% WithanolidesIncreases Resistance to Anxiety · Supports Sexual Health DESCRIPTION  Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic botanical which can help shield the brain and central nervous system from the effects of chronic stress. Ashwagandha has a history of use spanning millennia as an adaptogen in Ayurvedic medicine. The roots of this hardy perennial contain naturally occurring botanical steroids called withanolides. These biologically active compounds are credited for the many health benefits of ashwagandha. Ashwagandha can energize or calm the body when faced with stressful situations. Improved cognitive function and enhanced memory are also among its many benefits. Clinical trials have also demonstrated ashwagandha root extract to be effective for improved stamina, endurance, and exercise recovery. Ashwagandha can also reduce cortisol levels. When released into the bloodstream, cortisol triggers the “fight-or-flight” response. Chronic elevated levels of cortisol can lead to belly-fat accumulation, compromised immune performance, and even suppression of bone formation. New Roots Herbal’s Ashwagandha Extract contains 500 mg per capsule, potency-validated to contain a minimum of 5% withanolides. DIRECTIONS OF USE Adults: Take 1 capsule daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner. INGREDIENTS Each vegetable capsule contains: Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root extract, 5% withanolides 500 mg Other ingredients: Vegetable magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide in a non-⁠GMO vegetable capsule composed of carbohydrate gum and purified water.

New Roots Herbals New Roots B3 Niac... $12.00
New Roots B3 Niacin New Roots vitamin B3 includes the most bioavailable B‑vitamin enzyme forms. We complement our vitamin B3 with additional cofactors for maximum absorption. Vitamin B3, also called nicotinic acid and niacin, is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for many aspects of health, growth, and reproduction. It is part of the vitamin B complex and is involved in the oxidative release of energy from food, protects the skin, and helps improve circulation. Nicotinic acid is an essential component of a mammalian diet. It is the pellagra-preventing factor of vitamin B. The amide, nicotinamide, is incorporated into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Niacin is one of the most stable of the B vitamins. It is resistant to the effects of heat, light, air, acid, and alkali. White crystalline substances that are soluble in both water and alcohol, niacin and niacinamide are both readily absorbed from the small intestine. Small amounts may be stored in the liver, but most of the excess is excreted in the urine. Another important fact about vitamin B3 is that it can be manufactured from the amino acid tryptophan, which is essential (needed in the diet). Niacin is thus not truly essential in the diet when enough protein, containing adequate amounts of tryptophan, and other nutrients are consumed. When niacin is not present in sufficient amounts, extra protein is needed. Also, when we are deficient in such nutrients as vitamins B1, B2, and B6, vitamin C, and iron, we cannot easily convert tryptophan to niacin. Vitamin B3 is known to aid in promoting a healthy digestive system, be important for the health of the skin, increase circulation and help reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, promote relaxation, facilitate orgasms, and act as a mild growth hormone releaser. DIRECTIONS OF USE Adults: Take 1 capsule daily with food or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. WARNINGS Contains no: Gluten, soy, wheat, corn, eggs, dairy, yeast, citrus, preservatives, artificial flavour or colour, starch, or sugar. Cautions and warnings: Do not exceed the recommended dose except on the advice of a physician. Consult a health-care practitioner prior to use if you are taking cardiac glycosides or blood-pressure medication, or if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Known adverse reactions: People sensitive to nicotinic acid may experience flushing of the skin that is generally mild and transient. Do not use it if the seal is broken. Keep out of reach of children.

New Roots Herbals New Roots Black C... $17.00
New Roots Black Cohosh Extract New Roots black cohosh extract provides a quality-assured means to what is often thought of as a natural alternative to hormone therapy. Black cohosh is recognized as one of the most popular herbs for the treatment of menopausal symptoms. Black cohosh contains various glycosides such as actaein, cimicifungin, and racemosin; estrogenic substances; oleic and palmitic acid; phosphorus; tannins; triterpenes; and vitamins A and B5. It is considered to have a good antispasmodic property, and it has a long history of use in treating female disorders. The part used is the root. Most North American women will spend the last third of their lives postmenopausal. During this time, chronically low levels of steroidal estrogens may lead to a number of short- and long-term medical sequelae such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, heart disease, and osteoporosis. While some physicians believe that the demonstrated beneficial effects of estrogen, particularly on the cardiovascular and skeletal systems, warrant the taking of hormone therapy from menopause on, many women choose not to take estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) because of the alarming cancer rates from this therapy. They are increasingly exploring alternative approaches to ERT such as black cohosh. Black cohosh stimulates blood circulation and has a sedating effect on the nervous system. It is also useful for the treatment of the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism. Our high-potency, 15:1 extract is effective for soothing the pain of menstrual cramps resulting from ovarian neuralgia. DIRECTIONS OF USE Adults: Take 1–3 capsules daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner. WARNINGS Contains no: Gluten, soy, wheat, eggs, dairy, yeast, citrus, preservatives, artificial flavour or colour, starch, or sugar. Cautions and warnings: Consult a healthcare practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen.
