This report summarizes the current knowledge on the effects of zinc supplementation on the management of acute diarrhea . All published and unpublished studies on this topic, conducted in hospitals and in the community, were reviewed.

Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder
Still others present popular Ayurvedic botanicals, such asashwagandha, Sida cordifoilia and Coleus forskohli, as 'alchemical energy-givers' and as 'critical for increasing resistance and energy.'93 'Energy' in fact seems to be the single most important appeal to the elderly Ayurvedic user. In this view, the inevitable process of aging and degeneration is somehow 'reversed' or 'kept at bay'" Sita Reddy, 'The Politics and Poetics of “magazine Medicine”,' in The Politics of Healing: Histories of Alternative Medicine in Twentieth-Century North America, ed.

ImmuneSupport does not use Magnesium Stearate as a flow agent. (A flow agent is a substance that is used during the manufacturing process to help prevent the ingredients and capsules from sticking together.) There has been some controversy about the use of Magnesium Stearate in supplements and vitamins. A study published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences found that drugs lubricated with Magnesium Stearate exhibited a decrease in dissolution rate compared to those lubricated with Sodium Stearyl Fumarate (A water-based compound). The results suggest that Magnesium Stearate could possibly decrease the nutrient absorption rate of a dietary supplement. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3735097. We have decided not to use Magnesium Stearate in CalmSupport. Instead we use Organic Rice Hull Powder as a flow agent. We highly suggest that you do research before using any product that has Magnesium Stearate as an ingredient.
Warnings: As with any supplement, if you are taking medication or have a medical condition, consult your doctor before use. Not formulated for use by children or those pregnant or lactating. Do not exceed recommended use. May cause drowsiness, do not operate machinery. Keep out of reach of children.
