Byron White's Formulas
Ingredients in A-Bart and what they do:
Gou Teng: This herb has been used to lower the excitability of the central nervous system. Used also in Chinese medicine for hypertension, convulsions, headache, dizziness and apoplexy. A published journal article written by scientists in the Department of Oriental Pharmaceutical Science at South Korea's Kyung Hee University found the aqueous extract of gou teng may increase serotonin levels in the brain, resulting in mood and cognitive improvements, as well as help in the treatment of OCD, IBS, fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety.
Neem: This herb's anti-viral, anti bacterial and anti-fungal effects are well documented. Evidence exists for its use in pneumonia, ulcers, gout, diabetes, hypertension, skin infection and wound healing.The essential fatty acid content in Neem is high.
Grapefruit Seed: Grapefruit seed is considered therapeutic against hundreds of different bacteria, virus, parasite and fungal strains.The extract from the seeds helps inhibit intestinal infections while balancing healthy bacteria. It is a strong antioxidant with high nutrient values, including biotin and Vitamin C. It also is helpful with lymphatic drainage and elimination of toxins.
Indian Sarsaparilla: This herb has its action on circulation, autoimmunity, joint disease, digestive issues and viral infections. It is potentially most important as a rich nutrient and alkaloid source. For example, this provides saponin, panillin, cetyl-alcohol, cobolt, pollinstanol selenium, smilagenin, stigmasterol, zinc and Beta and Epsilon-sitosterol.

Garlic: Garlic functions as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial and metabolic agent. It has historically been used as an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-spirochete, anti-septic, diaphoretic, diuretic, expectorant and heavy metal chelator. It supports liver detoxification and decreases LDL cholesterol. It is a cardiovascular tonic, helps with the biosynthesis of fatty acids and phospholipids, and acts as an anti-clotting agent.
