From Siberia With Health

Probiotics are non-pathogenic and non-toxin-producing living microorganisms that provide a beneficial effect on the human body when systematically consumed.

Our intestines contain microorganisms that populated them at birth and further in the process of colonization. Many of these bacteria are considered beneficial or "friendly", their other name is non–pathogenic. The functions of such bacteria include the conversion of fiber into short-chain fatty acids, the synthesis of certain vitamins, and the support of the body's immune system. Using probiotics can help increase the number of beneficial bacteria.

In essence, probiotics are microorganisms that provide a variety of beneficial effects for our health when consumed in the right amount.

The ancient doctrine of herbal medicine of Siberian shamans.

Decoction of some plants is drunk instead of tea, as people say: "If the body requires it". Herbs that are in the house are used everywhere for this purpose: shilajit (mumijo), birch leaves, goatweed, chamomile, Chaga (Inonotus obliquus), rosehip, raspberry leaves, currant, etc. Usually, they are folded dry into a pillowcase, a bag, birch bark tuesques and brewed, drunk as tea or instead of water. The decoction is usually consumed only during the day.

Some plants are used in the treatment of specific diseases. In Taimyr (northern Siberia), indigenous tribes use dwarf birch leaves as an anti-inflammatory and antipruritic agent for mosquito bites. The bitten places are rubbed with freshly picked green leaves.

In the places of residence of the Evenk tribes (related to the Inuit), bath brooms are made from birch branches with leaves, a decoction of leaves in the form of tea is drunk with sore throat and cough; dry leaves are put in the bath and lie in them "if a cold wind blows through".

The tribes of the Nenets (Yamal Peninsula) with rheumatism (pain in the bones) burned a piece of birch growth (Chaga) on the patient's body. It was believed that the resulting easily healing wound, distracting bad juices from the diseased part of the body, bring relief to the patient.

Moss is especially popular among Siberian indigenous peoples. "Nyada" is what the Nenets call it. It is taken out from under the snow, steamed, and applied as a compress to sore joints, and in case of a cold - to the back and chest. The Nenets of the Taimyr Peninsula suggests using a decoction of deer moss (lichen, Icelandic moss) as a tonic, astringent and anti-inflammatory agent, since, in their opinion, a gelatinous decoction of lichens regulates the activity of the gastrointestinal tract, stimulates appetite, enhances the secretion of gastric juice. The Finno-Ugric Khanty tribe brews it as tea and drinks it as an expectorant for coughing and pneumonia.

There is a special type of valerian herb in the distant taiga region, which has unique healing properties and is very much appreciated by pharmacists and phytotherapists – “Stone Valerian” from Siberia. Patrinia sibirica has the second name of Siberian Valerian (Valeriana sibirica). It is a perennial herb that belongs to the Caprifoliaceae family and is used both in folk medicine and in scientific pharmacology.

What is so unique about this Siberian herb? In this article we will answer this question:

Biological and chemical features of “Stone Valerian”.

Siberian Valerian has a very developed root system. In this system, the root is thick enough and has many branches, on which a large number of dark-colored heads are formed. The rhizome of the Siberian herb gives numerous stems with flowers and shoots, as well as rosettes of leaves.

All stems of Patrinia sibirica are straight and have two longitudinal lines made up of many delicate hairs. The leaves are collected in rosettes with deep dissections in the form of feathers. In infertile rosettes, the leaves have a different shape. In some cases, there are leaves with serrated edges or dissected in the form of a feather, but such leaves are not pubescent.

Flowers appear on the stems of Siberian valerian, which are collected in inflorescences and are located at the end of the stem. The flowering of the valerian herb begins in May and lasts until the beginning of July. After the end of flowering, dry fruit is formed, in which there are three nests. Only one nest contains grain, the other nests are empty.

The herb grows on gravelly slopes and rocks, and it can also be found in dry pine or birch forests, in steppes, subalpine meadows, tundra, on rocky river coasts in Eastern Siberia.

Dihydroquercetin: medicinal properties and where it can be found.

As for dihydroquercetin, or taxifolin, it was discovered back in 1938, and for the first time showed its effectiveness in the fight against bleeding gums. At that time, the structure of dihydroquercetin was not yet known, and its functions, during the Second World War, research was suspended. But now we can fully explain its healing properties.

But here's the problem: unlike quercetin, it was not found in plants so often, despite the fact that quercetin and taxifolin molecules are very similar in structure, but very different in function and ability to heal the body.

Dihydroquercetin was found in grape seeds and rose petals, but naturally, it would be at least costly to isolate dihydroquercetin from these substances on an industrial scale, and we also do not use rose petals and grape seeds for food. Yes, there is a recipe for exotic jam made from rose petals and cold-pressed grape seed oil, but it is unlikely that they can be compared with onions, cabbage and plums in terms of frequency of use.

However, an almost inexhaustible source of taxifolin has now been found. This is an ecologically clean Siberian larch (Larix sibirica), which forms huge arrays of taiga forests in Siberia and the Far East. Dihydroquercetin occurs unevenly in larch tissues. There is more of it in that part of the trunk, which is called a lump, and goes into the roots. There is this bioflavonoid most of all.

Today, there are many different ways to lose weight, including surgery. Not all people have a desire to go to the operating table, right? We believe there are better ways. Shilajit as a supplement for your weight loss program can offer a much more humane method than a complex surgery

Called "Tears of the Mountains" by the indigenous inhabitants of Altai, Shilajit helps to eliminate cellulite, remove stretch marks, restore pigmentation and metabolic processes. The effectiveness of the remedy has been repeatedly proven by patients who have eliminated defects on the skin using shilajit.

What is the use of a Shilajit for losing weight?

Altai Shilajit is a resinous substance, which contains numerous macro, micro, and other elements that have a therapeutic effect, as well as unsurpassed healing properties.

Most nutritionists recommend Shilajit when compiling a comprehensive diet program to correct excess weight, remove stretch marks on the skin, and also reduce the localization of cellulite.

Some customers report that Shilajit is remarkable in that it has a wide range of possibilities it offers. It can be used both for correction and short-term prevention or serious therapy of obesity.

How to take Shilajit for weight loss?

The main feature of the Shilajit lies in its natural real effect. Most people who have tried advertising "miracle weight loss remedies" are convinced that all of these methods do not work or allow them to lose very little excess weight. So, how to take a Shilajit for weight loss?

In total, there are three methods of using Shilajit for losing weight:

  • detox shilajit drink ,
  • special baths to eliminate subcutaneous fat,
  • a cream made based on a resinous viscous mass, which eliminates stretch marks and cellulite.

When taking a Shilajit, it is important not just to follow the instructions, but to follow the established dosage and the instructions of the leading specialist.

Cream for healing skin stretch marks.

The presence of stretch marks when overweight is an urgent problem that worries many women. Specifically, striae (striae distensae) are a defect of the skin, a kind of small "cracks". They do not pose a threat, but in aesthetic terms, it could be a major headache.

Shilajit cream for healing stretch marks will help eliminate all defects of the skin. Since the resinous substance improves blood circulation, as well as activates the production of collagen, stretch marks are no longer a serious problem. The standard correction and cosmetic course are 2-3 weeks, if necessary, it can be extended.

Siberian bird cherry is capable of captivating you, both with the fragrant foam of white-creamy flowers in the spring and with the agate-black berry scattering at the end of summer. The fruits are processed and dried for subsequent grinding into powder (flour). You can also use berries for jams, juices, or compotes. With bird cherry powder, you can cook jelly, make delicious pastries, prepare desserts and sauces.

Key benefits of bird cherry flour.

The glycemic index of this powder is only 20 units. Like other fiber-rich foods, bird cherry flour can lower blood sugar levels. However, phytoncides are the real gem in this product. Bird cherry trees are called "forest orderlies" for a reason because they disinfect the air around them. Most of the beneficial properties can be preserved in dried berries.

Bird cherry flour is capable of:

  • Suppress the inflammatory processes in the pancreas, including those caused by viruses.
  • Strengthen immunity. This property is important in general for each person and diabetics in particular.
  • To increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin. This property can help with type 2 diabetes, as well as a cure in the early stages of gestational diabetes, which affects pregnant women.

Does bird cherry flour help you lose weight?

Those who want to lose weight should definitely pay attention to this product because its energy value is only 119 kcal per 100 g. Plus bird cherry is rich in fiber, which means that it will contribute to the fact that drinks and dishes prepared with its addition, will be:

  1. Accelerate digestion.
  2. Saturate the body for a long time.
  3. Remove toxins. Bird cherry powder acts on them like a "brush". It removes toxins from the body and makes a person feel much better.

Some are saying that in its pure natural resin form, Shilajit is difficult to consume due to its bitter taste and dense texture. So, some reportedly prefer to dissolve the Shilajit in pure water and milk, adding a teaspoon of honey. So, why not mix Altai resin with your favorite tea?

How to choose the right tea to mix with Shilajit?

It is quite difficult to draw up any general classification of existing teas for all countries of the world. The Europeans initially divided tea into two large groups - black and green. The Chinese have much more varieties and types - in addition to black and green, there are also white, yellow, red, and even turquoise (Oolong).

From the point of view of mixing Shilajit, it is worth considering teas by the type of processing of their processing and the method of brewing. After the tea leaves are harvested, they are sent for drying (withering), then rolled - this releases a lot of essential oils. The more the leaf is curled, the richer and more aromatic the drink will turn out after brewing and the tastier it will be in combination with the Shilajit.

According to the method of processing and brewing, tea is divided into several groups: read more...

The whole range of useful features of pine needle tea has long been revealed by the inhabitants of Siberia. Since ancient times, the locals have been constantly looking for a way to keep warm and a strong infusion of needles of coniferous trees came to their aid. The raw material for the remedy grows right on trees in all regions of Siberia, and the magic tea itself helps to protect against colds, depression and just a bad mood.

The main benefits of pine needle tea.

Correctly brewed coniferous tea contributes to the renewal of the body, improves concentration and halts the aging process. All this is possible due to the healing properties of the pine needle drink:

  • Strengthening of tooth enamel and gums;
  • Increase in the production of red blood cells. The infusion improves the quality of blood, prevents the formation of blood clots;
  • Enrichment of the body with a whole complex of vitamins from groups A, B, C. The needles contain a percentage of phosphorus, sodium and calcium;
  • Improving the quality of the skin. The skin becomes firmer, more elastic and looks rested. After a couple of cups of the drink, bruises under the eyes will disappear;
  • Strengthening the immune system. An irreplaceable property, especially in winter or during flu epidemics. What's more, the shikimic acid found in conifers is the main ingredient for most antiviral drugs.

Milk thistle is highly valued in folk medicine: it is an important source of silymarin, a flavonoid capable of healing damage in the liver and gallbladder. A special product is also made from milk thistle fruits – vegetable oil. It is considered a very beneficial food supplement.

The component (Silymarin) includes:

  • Silybin (Silybinin), of which silymarin consists of 50-70% and, accordingly, 39-56% “milk thistle extract”.
  • Isosilibin, which occupies about 5% of silymarin.
  • Silychristine and Isosilychristine – about 20% silymarin.
  • Silidianin – about 10% silymarin.
  • Taxifolin (quercetin conjugate, known as dihydroquercetin), usually in almost undetectable levels.

Since silybin is the main active component of this mixture of flavonoids, biological additives from milk thistle are evaluated by the content of silymarin or silybin.

The highest concentration of silymarin (silybin) in various preparations is in extracts of 50-70%, and in biological additives (without extract) - about 20-40%.

Milk thistle oil contains about 0,13 – 0,34 oz/lb of silymarin. Thus, a teaspoon of milk thistle oil contains 0,01 lb of oil and 0,0001 lb of silymarin when using oil with the highest content of this substance.

The composition of amaranth oil contains about 10% squalene. It protects the skin from various external influences and also prevents aging. The epidermis due to squalene will be saturated with moisture and retain elasticity.

The component can have an antimicrobial effect and protect the skin from various infections. It is actively used in cosmetology for the age group over 25 years because it is during this period that the concentration of squalene in the human body begins to decrease.

Amaranth oil is used to support the heart and circulatory system. The product has an antisclerotic effect, prevents the formation of cholesterol plaques and blood clots in the circulatory system. As part of this oil, squalene can strengthen the walls of blood vessels and stimulate blood circulation.

Due to phospholipids and amino acids, which are rich in amaranth oil, a hepatoprotective effect is provided. In other words, the process of outflow of bile from the body accelerates. This can have a beneficial effect on the state of the digestive system, as well as prevent the development of all kinds of stagnant processes in the intestine.

Many people are interested in whether it is possible to ensure that shilajit enters the internal organs through the skin. There is definitely a positive answer to this question. Moreover, the shilajit in this case can potentially provide a positive effect, both for the skin itself and for those parts that are near the skin.

We are talking about the muscles, joints of the arms and legs. Hence, a new question arises: how to do this? Very simple: through a cream or ointment with the shilajit in its composition. You can buy ready-made options, or you can make them yourself.

Shilajit is quite widely used for the treatment of joints. This is because it is particularly effective in this direction and can suypport cartilage and bone tissue.

The composition of Shilajit is rich in various organic compounds, acids, vitamins, as well as chemical trace elements. As a result, shilajit is a fairly effective substance that can have a potentially positive effect on changes occurring in bone tissue, as well as potentially treat inflammation in cartilage and joints.

The ideal option is to prepare an ointment with a Shilajit. Of course, you can buy a ready-made version, like Siberian Green Altai Cream-Gel “Warm Muscles & Joints” with Shilajit Pine Nut Essential Oils Resin and Herbs 100ml, or Siberian Green Altai Cream-Gel “Anti-Stretch Marks” with Shilajit and Siberian Herbs 100ml

To bring maximum benefit, it must be applied correctly. To do this, you will need to rub the mixture into the problem area liberally for 10-15 minutes. It's a painstaking task, of course, but it's worth it.
