About Body Guard Supreme
Each capsule of Body Guard contains 500mg of pure Phyllanthus niruri with no added fillers, binders, excipients, etc. There are well over 50 published studies on the therapeutic effects of this herb and for hundreds of years it has been used throughout South America, Central America, Africa, and Asia as a traditional treatment for many conditions.
The International Journal of Pharma and Bio Sciences says regarding Phyllanthus Fraternus/niruri (Body Guard) “Its main uses are for treatment of many types of biliary and urinary conditions including gallstones and kidney stones, hepatitis, colds, flu, tuberculosis, viral infections, liver diseases, anemia, and for bacterial infections such as cystitis, prostatitis, venereal diseases and urinary tract infections. The plant is employed for numerous other conditions such as colic, diabetes, malaria, dysentery, fever, pain, tumours, vaginitis, gonorrhoea and dyspepsia. The plant also expels worms, intestinal gas and acts as a mild laxative”.
In 1990 at the Paulista School of Medicine in Brazil it was shown that phyllanthus promoted the elimination of kidney stones and is sold today in pharmacies throughout that country for that purpose. Phyllanthus Niruri has an inhibitory effect on kidney stone formation, and could be used as a preventative for those prone to develop stones, or to help decrease the growth of stones in those with pre-existing ones. It also changed the shape and size of pre-formed stones, making them smaller and smoother, which then can be easier to pass.
It has diuretic properties and is shown to help lower blood pressure. It also increased in vitro clotting time and bleeding time in rabbits, similar to heparin or aspirin. Strokes are often due to both thrombus formation and oxidative stress, making Phyllanthus unique in its ability to help with both pathways.
Mice studies showed it can help reduce damage during chemotherapy and radiation and it increased the lifespan of mice with liver cancer by 65%. Initial studies have shown it to possess anti-malarial activity. In addition anti-babesia compounds are present and many clinicians use it when treating Lyme and its co-infections.
Phyllanthus has been shown to alleviate muscle-mediated pain and used in the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia.
In office research and testing done by an Applied Kinesiologist indicate Body Guard as having strong protective abilities against Electromagnetic Field (EMF) exposure. Many patients with EMF sensitivity have responded well from taking Body Guard. The effect appears to be from strengthening the organs that are stressed by EMFs.
