Health Benefits at a Glance:
Cat’s Claw (Uña de gato) is the centerpiece of this innovative immune supportive formula, which is enhanced with plant-derived essential oils and extracts, Vitamin D and the fatty acid monolaurin, all designed to maximally protect the immune system.
Why it Works:
How to boost your immune system? It's an age-old question. Plants all over the world protect themselves from pests by developing volatile oils that permeate their leaves, bark, or peel. These can offer many benefits to humans.
Cat’s Claw is a climbing vine that thrives in the Peruvian rainforest—stretching as tall as a thousand feet. Medicinal use of the inner bark dates back 2000 years to the Inca civilization, and to this day South American Ashaninka priests regard the plant as sacred, using it for healing and in religious ceremonies.
The most widely utilized strain of cat’s claw, Uncaria tomentosa, boasts a treasure trove of phytonutrients thought to be responsible for the vine’s reputed healing powers and the ability to strengthen immune defenses.
Each 1 mL of Nanoemulsified Cat’s Claw Elite delivers 1000 IU of Vitamin D3 and 350 mg of a proprietary blend of Liquid Cat’s Claw bark extract (Uncaria tomentosa), phospholipids (from purified sunflower seed lecithin), monolaurin, Lemon Balm leaf extract, Lemon Balm leaf oil, Rose flower oil, Natural Mint oil. All of these ingredients offer a solution to the question of how to boost your immune system naturally.
The fatty acid monolaurin is derived from lauric acid and is formed naturally in the human body in small quantities. Monolaurin works by binding directly to the envelope of invaders, preventing them from attaching and entering cells. Vitamin D is added to aid normal immune system function and bone health.
The Science Behind the Product:
Because many herbs have low bioavailability when taken orally, Dr. Shade developed Nanoemulsified Cat's Claw Elite™. Liposomal delivery systems have been shown to lead to more immediate effects and more stable plasma concentrations. In addition to exceptional absorption rates, small liposomal and nanoemulsified particles enhance lymphatic circulation, helping to bypass digestive enzymes and breakdown in the liver. The liposomes in this formula contain pure phosphatidylcholine, a phospholipid that is the primary building block of all cell membranes.
Quicksilver Delivery Systems®
Utilizes modern science to unleash the curative power of nature. With the world’s most advanced phospholipid delivery systems, Quicksilver Scientific supplements can help to nourish your cells with phosphatidylcholine as they deliver their core effective ingredients faster and more efficiently.
The Quicksilver Scientific Health System
The Quicksilver Health System is the result of Dr. Christopher Shade’s extensive research on liposomal detoxification methods. Dr. Shade has designed Quicksilver Scientific products around a groundbreaking detoxification concept that identifies the inhibition/elimination of toxicity, allergy, and infection as the key to a body in a natural and healthy state.
The road to inhibition of these factors has three steps: Restore, Maintain, and Advance.
