  • Bladderwack

    Bladderwrack is an edible brown seaweed (Fucus vesiculosus) that is extremely rich in health-promoting nutrients. It contains vitamin A, vitamin C, plus macro minerals and trace minerals. Bladderwrack contains a large dose of iodine, and was actually the plant from which iodine was originally discovered. Iodine is a major component of thyroid hormone, the hormone responsible for setting the body's metabolic rate. Natural health practitioners recommend kelp for a variety of conditions including: hypothyroidism, hair loss, ulcers, constipation, poor mineral status, and some female hormone imbalances.

  • Black Walnut

    Black walnut is primarily used to treat parasitic infections in the gastrointestinal tract. It contains compounds that kill some forms of parasites. It also has laxative activity to flush to parasites out of the body. Externally it has been used to heal wounds and fight fungal or bviral (warts) skin infections. Some studies show that Black walnut may be useful to treat high blood pressure and cholesterol.

  • Black Cohosh

    The Latin name of black cohosh, Cimicifuga, actually means bug repeller, although today it is better known for its hormonal activity. black cohosh is a phytoestrogenic agent. This means that it contains plant estrogens, compounds that look similar to human estrogen and can interact with estrogen receptors in the human body. The important thing to remember is that these plant estrogens only stimulate the receptors a fraction of the amount that the hormone estrogen would. Therefore black cohosh can be used to treat conditions of high estrogen activity, by blocking the activity of the hormone estrogen.

  • Bioflavonoids

    Flavonoids are a group of molecules that give colour to many fruits and vegetables. They produce yellow or red/blue pigments designed to attract pollination insects. These molecules are also known as bioflavonoids, and even sometimes as vitamin P. They are found in almost all plants, in varying amounts.

  • Bilberry

    Bilberry became valued as a medicinal agent during World War II when British pilots claimed that eating bilberries improved their visual acuity, night vision and ability to adapt to glare. Scientific studies have backed up these testimonials by uncovering bilberry’s antioxidant properties. Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage.

  • Betaine Hcl

    Betaine hydrochloride contains approximately 23% hydrochloric acid, commonly known as stomach acid. It is naturally sourced from beets. Stomach acid initiates the digestive process by beginning the breakdown of food, especially protein. It is also an important protective mechanism against infection by killing any microbes that are contained in our food or water. Low stomach acid impairs one’s ability to digest food by limiting the release and functioning of other digestive enzymes.

  • Beta Glucan

    Some common food sources of beta glucan include the bran of some cereal grains, including oats, wheat, and barley. It can also be derived from medicinal mushrooms and some yeasts. Beta glucan can be classified as a soluble or insoluble fibre, and varies in terms of viscosity and mass, depending on the source.

  • Beta Carotene

    Beta carotene is the carotenoid molecule responsible for the orange colour of some fruits and vegetables such as carrots and apricots. Once consumed, Beta carotene can be converted by the liver into vitamin A, in its active (retinal) or storage (retinol) form. This is considered a safer way of supplementing vitamin A, as beta-carotene is non-toxic and is converted to vitamin A in only the amount required by the body.

  • Bentonite Clay

    Bentonite is a commercial name for a specific constituent of many medicinal clays called montmorillo-nite, which comes from volcanic ash. Bentonite contains high concentrations of iron, calcium, magnesium and silica. It has been used for centuries, both topically and internally, for protection from toxins and radioactive substances, as well as heavy metal poisoning.

  • Benfotiamine

    Benfotiamine was originally discovered over 50 years ago in roasted crushed garlic and onions. It is a precursor to thiamine (vitamin B1), in which the ring substructure remains open. This means that it is fat soluble and can cross cellular membranes more freely than thiamine's closed-ring structure. Once inside the cell, benfotiamine is quickly converted to thiamine pyrophoshate (TPP), the water-soluble, active coenzyme form of vitamin B1.
