A synergistic blend of herbs that supports healthy hormonal balance and the immune system. The main ingredient in Genoma EQ is an extract from the root of the Stinging Nettle plant Urtica dioica. Nettle root has several important healthful effects:
- Proper hormone balance: Nettle root that has been used in Germany for more than a decade to treat prostate enlargement has been shown to reduce symptoms by 86% after 3 months of use. This effect has been confirmed by numerous supportive studies. Some chemical agents of nettle root are able to block the enzyme 5a-reductase which is responsible for the formation of DHT from testosterone - the main villain involved in the development of male-pattern hair loss in men and stress-induced hair loss in women.
- Immune balance: Nettle root contains a small molecular weight lectin Urtica dioica agglutinin purified from the root which exhibits antiviral activity and is capable of modulating aspects of the immune system.
- Candida control: Nettle root contains a lectin which agglutinates the human yeast pathogen Candida albicans.
