FDA wants to ban astragalus, nettle, curcumin!

Here is a short list of supplements / herbs the FDA wants to ban.

Very important for lyme sufferers!!
Even ARTEMISININ is inside!!! [Eek!]

Acetyl-L-carnitine is naturally produced by the body, functions as an antioxidant, and promotes the production of glutathione in cells. It is used for Alzheimer’s disease, age-related memory problems, and a wide range of other conditions.

Aloe Vera is a plant that has been used medicinally as far back as the 16th century BCE. It is widely used in natural and traditional medicine for a variety of conditions, treating everything from burns to constipation, psoriasis, and herpes simplex virus.

Artemisinin is a compound found in sweet wormwood, an herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. It is most notably used to treat malaria, but it may also be helpful for tuberculosis and a host of other conditions.

Considering the rise of drug-resistant TB, which is virtually untreatable and is sending conventional doctors into a panic, it would be lunacy to restrict access to this herb.

Astragalus is an herb used in Chinese medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties

Chondroitin Sulfate is a structural component of the cartilage in joints. It stimulates the production of cartilage, improves blood circulation to the joints, and is used to treat osteoarthritis, among other things.

Curcumin is a compound in turmeric with well demonstrated anti-inflammatory characteristics

D-Ribose is a natural ingredient for increasing energy (ATP) production. Evidence indicates that d-ribose can rejuvenate heart muscles after a heart attack or other cardiac events.

Deoxy-D-Glucose has exhibited anticancer and antiviral properties, but there is no mystery as to why it was voted down. It is currently being studied by a drug company as a possible drug, so the FDA is no doubt protecting the pharmaceutical company looking into the substance.

Domperidone has been useful for treating gastroesophageal reflux disease with minimal serious side effects.

Glycyrrhizin is used as an antiviral agent, especially for hepatitis. It does have to be used carefully under medical supervision, but in this case has been banned from prescribed medical use.

Nettle has a number of salutary effects. It was used by Roman soldiers to withstand the cold by stimulating blood circulation. It helps the body detoxify itself, alleviates allergic reactions, and promotes healthy blood circulation.

NAD (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a vital compound involved in mitochondrial health and energy metabolism. As NAD levels decline later in life, mitochondrial function is impaired, resulting in various symptoms of aging. NAD is also an essential cofactor of certain key enzymes that are responsible for longevity. Every year we are learning more about how critical NAD is, including for cancer control.

Vanadyl Sulfate is an insulin mimic and a natural therapy for diabetes and insulin resistance. It is a form of a trace mineral found in mushrooms and shellfish.

I would want to just die if I didn't have my curcumin. It's the only thing I can take for inflammation.

That's just crazy!

Lymetoo, how much curcumin do you have to take daily to control your inflamation?

The ban would be for compounding pharmacies.

I am not sure how that would affect supplements bought online or over the counter.

Definitely not a good idea!

Yes, I noticed it referred to compounding .. which is strange.

Broxin .. I take it three times a day. I think it's 650mg each dosage.

You may go to the site and send a letter or support their cause!

I live in Europe, so it won't make a difference...
you have to do that!

It's crazy they want to ban curcumin. How mean this can be?

Even nettle?
Astragalus?
Artemisinin?

I am sure these interfere with pharmaceutical profits. Why compounding pharmacies? Hands off to our over-the-counter freedoms.

I would go beyond calling this mean. I would call it UN Agenda 21, proceeding as planned.
