About Hemo Guard Supreme
Recent research by David Berg and many others have also implicated the following in causing hypercoagulation: many forms of infection (viral, parasitic, bacterial, and fungal) as well as toxic chemicals and metals. The fibrin formation may be the body’s attempt to wall off the microbes.
It is theorized by some that these newer recognized causes may account for many cases of pulmonary embolisms that were previously labeled as idiopathic.
To cause hypercoagulation there may be an excess of prothrombin, thrombin or fibrinogen or a deficiency or fibrin breakdown chemicals: plasmin, plasminogen, tissue plasminogen activator or a deficiency of antithrombin III.
Pharmaceutical intervention can be very effective but in some people can lead to serious side effects (typically bleeding events). The drugs though can be life saving and you should follow your physician’s advice.
In less severe cases, with the consent of your physician, there are certain herbs and other lifestyle changes that can discourage hypercoagulation.
Hemo Guard is a combination of some of the more effective agents. It contains the following:
Ginkgo has been used for many years for memory enhancement, increased cognition, and an increased ability to pay attention. One property reported in a study in China is that it is a potent antagonist of platelet activating factor and thus may help prevent blood clots and hypercoagulation. The World Health Organization also reported that is helpful in treating cerebrovascular insufficiency as well as peripheral artery occlusive disease. Recent studies also show it acting as a scavenger of free radicals and having neuroprotective effects from hypoxia. It should not be used if you are on anticoagulant therapy.
Studies at the University of Maryland suggest that Ginger has blood-thinning properties by acting as an anti-thrombotic, in addition to lowering cholesterol and being anti-inflammatory. A research study conducted in Australia looked at the ability of ginger to stop or reduce platelet activation and aggregation induced by arachidonic acid in human blood. They also compared and contrasted the anticoagulant properties of ginger with those of aspirin. The report concluded that ginger could prevent blood platelets from adhering together. This might be due to the inhibition of the enzyme COX-1. The report also concluded that ginger compounds and the derivatives of ginger are more effective as antiplatelet agents than aspirin.
In one fascinating study on dietary effects on fibrinolysis, fibrinolytic activity decreased by 18.8 per cent after administration of fatty meal. Addition of ginger along with the fat not only prevented the fall in fibrinolytic activity but actually increased it by 6.7 per cent. As compared with the fatty meal, ginger actually increased fibrinolysis by 31.5 per cent.
Ginger has many other good properties in addition to anticoagulation. Studies have shown consuming ginger can be a way to lower blood pressure. It also contains antibacterial properties that can be used to treat microbial infections such as coliform bacillus, staphylococcus epidermidis and streptococcus viridans. Ginger has also shown to help with fat digestion in addition to increasing thermogenesis and decreasing satiety (hunger), working to help with weight loss. This is one reason why many cultures include ginger as a spice whenever they eat fatty meals.
Green papaya contains three different proteolytic enzymes: Chymopapain, Papain, and Papaya Proteinase III. The strong proteolytic enzymes in papaya may assist in fibrinolysis and dissolution of biofilms.
Hemo Guard should not be used if the patient is on ‘blood thinners” such as warfarin and other similar pharmaceuticals. If the patient is not on these, it may prove to be a useful tool. It may also be used to possibly prevent conditions in people who have family histories of some of the previously mentioned hypercoagulation caused problems.
In many cases we see Hemo Guard helping treat microbial infections when one is on an antimicrobial regime by allowing the antimicrobials to reach the most distal areas of the body.
