Core Artemisia Blend by Energetix
Core Artemisia Blend is a spagyrically prepared botanical blend including black walnut, clove bud, wormwood, garlic, and other herbs. It was designed to help maintain normal elimination of parasites, microbial balance, and gastrointestinal function. This formula may support:
• Beneficial gut flora & intestinal epithelial integrity
• Digestion, assimilation & elimination
• Healthy liver, gallbladder & gastrointestinal function
• Glucose & lipid metabolism
• Healthy immune function
Biological Response: Digestion, Assimilation & Metabolism
Bitter compounds in black walnut, wormwood, papaya, senna, turmeric, and tansy prime the stomach, for digestion by binding with taste receptors throughout the digestive tract. These compounds—mostly terpenes, phenolics, and alkaloids—stimulate salivation, hydrochloric acid secretion, bile production, bile flow, and gut motility; they also nourish the intestinal epithelium and promote beneficial gut flora, the foundation of both digestive and immune health. Most of the botanicals in this formula also enhance elimination of metabolic waste via liver, bowel, and kidneys, while several—such as papaya, pumpkin, and garlic—modulate signaling pathways that govern glucose and lipid metabolism.
Biological Response: The Gut Microbiota & Immune Health
Housed primarily within the gastrointestinal wall, the immune system protects the body from harmful substances by recognizing foreign proteins known as antigens. As such, immune health relies heavily on digestive health. When flourishing, the gut microbiota regulates the immune system through complex molecular signaling. Gastroprotective effects of herbal bitters such as wormwood and papaya—especially their promotion of beneficial intestinal bacteria—establish a supportive terrain for healthy immune function.
Many of the plants in Core Artemisia Blend contain terpenes and phenolics that modulate NF-kB signaling, a pathway crucial for immune function. Phenolics also influence the immune response by promoting the activation of phagocytes. In addition, organosulfur compounds found in garlic bulb boost production of T helpercells—vital immune cells that manage antibody production and phagocyte proliferation.
