Health & Weight Loss — It All Starts With Healthy Cells

Cells go through regeneration as often as every couple of days.  Our skin is totally replaced every 27 days and our skeleton is renewed every two years.  Every day billions of cells replace the ones that came before.  Every regeneration must be a perfect copy. This process of regeneration is threatened by many things: pollution in the air, water, and soil, radiation from the sun, stress, lifestyle choices, and even the ingredients in our over processed foods.  This is why detoxification and proper nutritional intake is paramount in any weight loss objective.

The ingredients in T4 skinny+ Diet-Free Tea© have been carefully researched to work synergistically.  Our unique blend of herbs and spices from all over the world combine to make T4 skinny+ Diet-Free Tea© the most unique tea there is.

Ingredient – Black Seed (also called black cumin)

The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt.  Black Seed, in fact, was found in Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun’s tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years ago.  In Arabic cultures, black seed is known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing.”

Many of black seed’s traditionally ascribed health benefits have been confirmed numerous times in biomedical literature. In fact, since 1964, there have been 458 published peer-reviewed studies referencing it.

Over 40 health conditions may benefit from the use of the herb, including over 20 distinct pharmacological actions such as:

  • Analgesic (Pain-Killing)
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-Ulcer
  • Anti-Cholinergic
  • Anti-Fungal
  • Ant-Hypertensive
  • Antioxidant
  • Antispasmodic

It has over 1600 natural compounds with a wide range of health benefits.

Cancer Studies and Black Seed (also known as Nigella sativa)

Presently, there are 462 published studies on the efficacy of Nigella sativa.  There have been multiple studies on the effect of Nigella sativa and its anti-tumor capabilities.  In 1997 at the Cancer Research Facility at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Nigella sativa was proven to have enormous capabilities in tumor cell death.

1.) Pancreatic cancer: A study was done at Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson and the researchers found that by adding Nigella sativa, 80 percent of pancreatic cancer cells were destroyed.  Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in America with a four percent survival rate after five years using conventional treatments.

2.) Colon cancer: In 2010, a research project was conducted in Tanta, Egypt on the use of Nigella sativa against colon cancer in rats.  Nigella sativa greatly reduced the size of the tumors and also reduced the tumors in the lungs and alimentary canals.

3.) Breast cancer: In 2003, researchers from Jackson State University in the U.S. tested Nigella sativa on breast cancer cells.  Ending results showed promising advances in the treatment of breast cancer.

There are many success stories using Nigella sativa against cancer and how each protocol worked for that individual, such as the boy who took nine capsules a day of the Black Seed oil (Nigella sativa) for brain cancer.

Ingredient – Borotutu

Borotutu is by far one of the most powerful substances when it comes to liver cleansing and digestive system support.  It has even shown promise in combating biliary colic, and jaundice.  It’s also important to note that this herb contains powerful antioxidants which are known to help protect your liver cells from serious damage.  You can read more about the liver cleansing properties of borotutu here.

The liver is the primary organ responsible for expelling and breaking down toxins entering the body.  It produces bile, a detoxifying agent metabolically indispensable in breaking down fats from food.

The liver’s job is also to detoxify your body and purify your bloodstream.  A healthy liver is essential in preventing disease and achieving optimal health.  However, your liver can easily become overburdened with toxins such as pesticide residues, pharmaceutical drugs, alcohol, bad fats and food additives.  When it’s not working properly, a host of chronic and degenerative diseases can result.

Deep in the jungles of Africa, the bark of the borotutu tree (Cochlospermum angolensis) holds many treasures and has traditionally been used to manage ailments related to liver function, indigestion and fatigue.  Indeed, borotutu bark tea as a broad spectrum tonic is an old world tradition.  A natural and powerful broad spectrum cleansing agent, traditional African medicine favors borotutu for the management of problems of the liver and gallbladder.

Rich in active ingredients such as quinones, catechins, phenols and bio-flavonoids, borotutu has a wealth of substances shown to benefit the liver and gallbladder.  For problems related to the the digestive system and gallbladder.  Borotutu bark is one of nature’s most powerful tonics—hands down.

Like many phytonutrients, borotutu bark is a venerable source for the extremely health promoting power of antioxidants.  Antioxidants sniff out and fight free radicals, helping to lessen oxidative stress and damage.  By sniping out those varmints, antioxidants aid the body in detoxification.  Antioxidant activity can help the body defend itself against the negative outside influences of pollution, stress, and toxic chemicals in our water, air and environment.

Borotutu has anti-oxidant properties, anti-hepatocellular carcinoma activity and alleviates hepatoxicity.

Ingredient – Cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known.  It was mentioned in the Bible and was used in ancient Egypt not only as a beverage flavoring and medicine, but also as an embalming agent.  It was so highly treasured that it was considered more precious than gold.  Around this time, cinnamon also received much attention in China, which is reflected in its mention in one of the earliest books on Chinese botanical medicine, dated around 2,700 B.C. Cinnamon’s popularity continued throughout history.  It became one of the most relied upon spices in Medieval Europe.  Due to its demand, cinnamon became one of the first commodities traded regularly between the Near East and Europe.  Ceylon cinnamon is produced in Sri Lanka, India, Madagascar, Brazil and the Caribbean, while cassia is mainly produced in China, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Many people don’t know that there is good and bad cinnamon.  Cinnamon cassia is the bad cinnamon.  Ceylon cinnamon is the good stuff.  We use ceylon cinnamon in T4 skinny+ Diet-Free Tea©.

Anti-Viral

During the 1918 influenza outbreak, workers at cinnamon factories seemed immune to the Spanish flu which decimated the population.  A potent new form of cinnamon extract may even protect against HIV.  An Israeli researcher, taking a cue from a Biblical reference to high priests using a holy oil containing cinnamon, in 2007 developed a powerful cinnamon extract which may protect against modern viruses like the Avian flu.

Blood Sugar Control

There may be a touch of ancient wisdom at work in all the recipes which combine cinnamon with high-carb and high-fat ingredients.  Cinnamon can mitigate the impact these foods have on blood sugar levels, slowing the rate at which the stomach empties after meals and thereby reducing the potential spike in blood sugar.  Cinnamon can offer aid to people who have type 2 diabetes by preventing insulin resistance and has even been recommended by the American Diabetes Association.  Research has shown cinnamon outperforms diabetes drugs.  In a study published in The Journal of Diabetic Medicine, research subjects given cinnamon supplements experienced greater improvement in blood sugar levels than those who received standard diabetes drugs.

Muscle To Fat Ratio

Studies indicate that cinnamon supplements go beyond just improving blood glucose levels; they can also reduce body fat percentage and help increase lean muscle mass.

Scent

If people at the holiday dinner table seem especially alert when the cinnamon-spiced pumpkin pie is being served, it might be because of its scent, not just an appetite for sweets.  A 2004 study found that the smell of cinnamon helped boost brain function.  Study participants performance on tasks involving virtual recognition memory, attentional processes, working memory, and visual-motor speed while using a computer were measured comparing the relative effects of jasmine, peppermint, cinnamon and no odor. Cinnamon had the strongest positive effect on study subjects’ cognitive processing skills.  Cinnamon’s aroma comes from cinnamonaldehyde, an essential oil in the bark of cinnamon trees.

Anti-Microbial

Cinnamon has the ability to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, molds and yeasts, including Candida yeast.  In a 2003 study, two batches of vegetable broth were refrigerated, one with, and one without cinnamon oil.  The broth with the cinnamon oil was resistant to food-borne pathogenic Bacillus cereus for at least 60 days.  Researchers in this study observed that the cinnamon not only served as an effective preservative but also improved the flavor of the broth.  In another study, researchers at Kansas State University discovered that cinnamon eliminates E. coli in unpasteurized apple cider.  For more information on the amazing health benefits of cinnamon click here.

Ingredient – Manjistha

In Ayurvedic medicine, Manjistha is considered to be the best alternative or blood-purifying herb.  It cools and detoxifies the blood, dissolves obstructions in blood flow, and removes stagnant blood.  Manjistha also has healing properties that help protect gums from receding and/or bleeding.  It is believed to have antioxidant and astringent properties as well.

Manjistha can pacify the reactivity of toxins in the body while supporting detoxification. According the ancient Ayurvedic text, Bhava Prakash, Manjistha is able to bind the free radical (amavisha) and xenobiotic (garavisha) toxins which cause inflammation (shotha), skin disease (kushta), ulcers (vrana), among other problems.

Manjistha has been used since ancient times for many conditions resulting from excess toxicity in the tissues.  By removing those toxins, it has been used to improved the conditions.

Manjistha Is Useful When Detoxification Goes Too Fast

A detox crisis results when toxins come out of the liver or other tissues faster than they can be removed by the body.  This can result in damage to the channels, inflammation and auto-immune flare-ups.

When reactive toxins float freely in tissues such as blood and muscle, they create lots of damage. The free radicals and highly acidic toxins literally eat away at the healthy tissues, which can lead to an immune response that can sometimes spiral out of control.

The cause may be irresponsible detoxification (trying to detoxify the liver or other organs too fast, causing a reabsorption of toxins into the blood). Or it may be due to poor diet, compounded over years with blocked channels of elimination. Or it may result from negative emotions and unhealthy thinking over many years.

Whatever the cause, when highly reactive toxins (visha) overflow the protective bounds of the liver and move into the blood and other tissues, auto-immune reactions such as psoriasis (kushta), inflammation (shotha), ulcers (vrana) and other symptoms may appear, according to Ayurveda.

The first thing that must be done is to slow the detox process. If a person is using a highly detoxifying herb like neem or turmeric, this must be stopped. If diet is the problem, it must be corrected to include more summer squashes and other soma-rich foods, as well as binders such as okra, barley and tapioca.

Manjistha is the herb of choice because it binds the reactive toxins (visha) and helps get them out of the body.  Learn more about the benefits of Manjistha for auto-immune toxins here.

Ingredient – Moringa

Moringa has been called the “Miracle Tree” and the “Tree of Life” in many cultures around the world and it is known by over 200 different names.  Its uses as a health and medicinal plant has been studied, written about and experienced for centuries.  History reveals that ancient kings and queens from the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians used this magical plant for healing, skin protection and water purification.  Its oil was also placed in the tombs of ancient Egyptians for use in the afterlife.

Moringa is a nutritional powerhouse that is considered ayurvedic medicine in India and nowadays is also being promoted by various humanitarian and governmental organizations as a means to combat malnutrition in impoverished areas of the world.  According to NCBI, moringa can save millions of lives.  Native peoples use it as medicine to prevent and/or treat over 300 diseases.

Moringa leaves, which is the most nutritious part of the Moringa tree, is loaded with Vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and for this reason it is known as the Nutrition powerhouse.  Fresh Moringa leaves contain 70 to 75% moisture and when they are dried the moisture content goes down to less than 8% and hence the nutrients becomes much more concentrated.

Moringa And Skin Health

Moringa contains a recently discovered cytokinin (plant hormones that induce cell division, growth, and delay aging of cells).  Moringa Tea has named this unique compound Moringa.  In recent clinical tests, this naturally occurring substance increased both the growth and yield of agricultural products and, when added to the diets of dairy cattle, significantly increased their milk production and furthermore promoted more rapid cellular regeneration.  Clinical studies have shown Moringa produces anti-aging properties in humans.  The human skin life cycle is approximately 300 days.  Every minute more than 40,000 individual skin cells die.  With the use of Moringa the human skin cycle was altered by the fact that new skin cells grew faster than the older cells died. This resulted in an amazing reduction of wrinkles on the face and other parts of the body.

Zeatin, one of the compounds in Moringa is a supreme anti-oxidant with powerful anti-aging properties.  Zeatin slows the aging process by helping the body replace cells at a faster rate than they age, giving a more youthful appearance to the skin.  A 2004 study by Seneteck PLC shows that Zeatin does not interfere with the genetic control of cellular lifespan, that it promotes maintenance of small cell size (key determinant of youthful skin) and prevents the accumulation of macromolecular damage in the cell.  It was also found the Zeatin increases the activity of anti-oxidants to counter act the damage caused by free radicals during cell aging and protects healthy cells from the stress of daily life.  Moringa has several thousand times more Zeatin than any other known plant.

Cleansing and Detoxifying

Importantly, Schizandra Berry has been shown to assist the body in the detoxification process, helping rid the body of toxins including heavy metals, harmful chemicals, alcohol, tobacco particles and more.  An extremely important attribute of Schizandra Berry is its usefulness as a detoxifying agent.  When taken on a regular basis, it has shown itself to be an important liver and blood cleansing aid  helping the body rid itself of toxins to help avoid serious damage to the body.

Skin Care Benefits

By the time of the Great Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Schizandra Berry’s reputation for preserving youthful vigor and bestowing beauty was becoming well known.  Chinese women of the Imperial Court, whose ‘job’ it was to ‘practice the Art of Beauty,’ were especially taken with Schizandra Berry.  Master herbalist Ron Teeguarden echoes this sentiment today when he writes, “Schizandra growing on the vine is widely used to beautify skin and protect it from the damaging effects of the sun and wind.  Due to the astringent quality of Schizandra, the skin tends to hold moisture and becomes full and radiant.”

Ingredient – Silymarin

Known for it excellent liver protectant properties, silymarin has proven effective in scientific studies for hepatitis, cirrhosis and jaundice.  This herb is used to protect the liver from toxins and drugs, such as alcohol, aspirin, acetominophen and pharmaceutical drugs.  It enhances liver regeneration after exposure to heavy metlas radiation or toxic chemicals.  Silymarin stimulate the growth of new liver cells, builds liver health and is a strong anti-oxidant.  The ground seeds can be sprinkled on food.  Besides the liver protective compounds (called silymarin) they also contain a substantial quantity of essential fatty acids, starch and protein.

Silymarin, the active extract from milk thistle, is a complex of 7 flavonolignans and polyphenols.  The most active compount in silymarin is silibinin.  It has been extensively used in patients with liver disease.

Silymarin is a powerful anti-oxidant said to protect liver cells and other cells in the body and brain from toxins.  Sylimarin apparently promotes liver cell protein synthesis and decreases the oxidation of glutathione.

There are 295 scientific studies of silymarin.

Ingredient – Blessed Carduus

Blessed carduus is credited with magical powers and has been used in traditional medicine as far back as the early sixteenth century as an appetite stimulant, astringent and blood purifier to name a few uses.  It was cultivated in Europe as a cure for smallpox and is named in honor of St. Benedict.  Blessed carduus helps increase appetite in people with digestion or eating disorders such as anorexia but does not increase the appetite of people without eating disorders.  In herbal medicine Blessed carduus is used for cancer, inflammation, infections, gall bladder disease, jaundice and other liver disorders, cervical dysplasia, heart ailments, skin ulcers, yeast infections and diarrhea.

Ingredient – Persimmon

Studies have shown that compounds in persimmon leaves bind to excess fat and help remove it from the body.  the leaves of the persimmon plant are just as useful and healthy as the deep orange, edible fruit.  The persimmon leaf is noted for its use in China, Japan and Korea.  The Chinese Academy of the Sciences found that this particular leaf contains a large variety of Vitamin C, tannins, flavonoids, rutin, choline carotenoids and amino acids.  In addition the leaves were found to contain 10 elements:  Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn), Titanium (Ti), Calcium (Ca), Phosphorous (P), and more.  These elements are found to aid healthy bodily functions.  Compared to other tea leaves, persimmon leaf contains a higher level of health and nutritional benefits.  Analysis has shown persimmon leaf contains 3.5 – 20.8 times the Vitamin C found in green tea.  These health benefits generate anti-cancer and anti-influenza virus interferons.

Ingredient – Sweetweed

The main therapeutic constituent of sweetweed is mucilage, a spongy substance of the root that is composed of large sugar molecules.  Mucilage’s healing effect stems from its ability to support white blood cells against attacking micro-organisms.  When liquid is added to mucilage it acquires a gel-like consistency.  This gooey substance coats mucous membranes of the throat, mouth, stomach and intestinal tract and provides relief from inflammation and pain.  It also acts to expel phlegm from the lungs and to relax the bronchial tubes.

These anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties make sweetweed a viable remedy for arthritis and joint pain; upper respiratory ailments such asthma, emphysema, bronchial infections, coughs, sore throats and lung congestion, inflamed kidneys and urinary tract disorders and gastrointestinal disturbances including Crohn’s Disease, ulcers, diarrhea, dysentery and stomach irritation.
