4. What does Cushex Drops contain?

Cushex Drops contains the following 100% natural ingredients:

  • Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is well-known as a tonic for the liver, kidneys and adrenal glands and will help to support normal adrenal functioning.  Dandelion also contains vitamins and minerals important for hair health and growth and has been studied for its support of anti-oxidation (Hu, C. and Kitts, D. D. "Antioxidant, prooxidant, and cytotoxic activities of solvent-fractionated dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) flower extracts in vitro" J Agric.Food Chem. 1-1-2003;51(1):301-310.).
  • Burdock (Arctium lappa) is a cleansing and eliminating herb and is excellent at detoxifying the tissues and supporting waste removal from the body (Shimizu, J., Yamada, N., Nakamura, K., Takita, T., and Innami, S. "Effects of different types of dietary fiber preparations isolated from bamboo shoots, edible burdock, apple and corn on fecal steroid profiles of rats." J Nutr Sci Vitaminol.(Tokyo) 1996;42(6):527-539.). Burdock is also traditionally recommended for maintaining blood sugar levels within the normal range and has been investigated for its ability to support health (Lin, C. C., Lu, J. M., Yang, J. J., Chuang, S. C., and Ujiie, T. "Anti-inflammatory and radical scavenge effects of Arctium lappa." Am J Chin Med 1996;24(2):127-137.).
  • Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceous) is an herb which has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for many centuries as a revitalizing tonic. Astragalus is known as an adaptogen and helps to support balance in the adrenal glands. It helps to maintain healthy adrenal cortical function and is important for supporting blood pressure and blood sugar levels within the normal range.  Recent research confirms the positive effect of Astragalus on immune functioning and its role in supporting the functions of the immune system (Jiao Y, Wen J, Yu X. [Influence of flavonoid of "Astragalus membranaceus's stem and leaves on the function of cell mediated immunity in mice". Zhongguo Zhong Xi Yi Jie He Za Zhi 1999;19(6):356-358.).
  • Arsenicum album (30C) is a natural ingredient with a wide range of uses, including the maintenance of digestive health and balanced body fluid. Arsenicum supports normal urination and thirst levels within healthy ranges
  • Hepar sulphuris calcareum (30C) is also a natural ingredient and is often recommended when skin health and integrity are the goals.
  • Mercuris solubilis (30C) is an excellent remedy that is often recommended to soothe common nervous tension and to maintain normal thirst functions.
  • Sulphur (30C) will help to support a healthy skin condition and act as a digestive tonic.
