Shop by Health Goal: Amrit System
Discover the Healthiest Food Ever
Every day, for the price of a fast-food breakfast, you can treat your body to the true "super food." The herbal formulas for the two Amrit food supplements date back over thousands of years. But in all that time, no doctor, scientist or herbalist has discovered anything that is more healthy for your mind and body. Modern scientific research reveals that the two-part Maharishi Amrit Kalash formula — the Nectar herbal fruit concentrate and the Ambrosia herbal tablets — nourishes the body in a way that no ordinary food or supplement ever has. The initial studies demonstrate that Amrit is the most effective antioxidant, by far. It has 1,000 times more antioxidant power than vitamin C, vitamin E or the drug probucol. Free radical damage is linked to over 80% of disease. It's the number one cause of poor health. So, it makes sense that Amrit offers a broad spectrum of benefits. The ancient medical texts report that Amrit promotes better health throughout the entire mind and body. Now, the modern research confirms that theory. Amrit does much more than eliminate free radicals. It creates better health!
The research and health benefits can be divided into five categories:
- Antioxidant Protection
- Cardiovascular Health
- Immunity and Prevention
- The Mind, Brain and Nervous System
There is also a description of how the herbs are prepared. It summarizes the health benefits according to the ancient system of health care, ayurveda, that created the Amrit formulas. Both the timeless knowledge and the modern research lead to the same obvious conclusion. If you care about your health, happiness and longevity, Amrit is a great investment. You simply have to try it for yourself.
Better Health Depends on Smart Cells
When the research results began coming in, leading scientists were amazed. It's highly unusual for a single formula to generate such a wide range of beneficial results. The herbal formula has an ancient Sanskrit name, Amrit Kalash, which means the "golden cup of immortality." The scientific studies show that both of the Amrit supplements have a significant, positive effect on cardiovascular health, the immune system, detoxification, the nervous system and free radical activity — from the cellular level to the functioning of the whole body. How can one natural food supplement deliver so many different health benefits? Hari Sharma, M.D. is the leading scientist who came up with the answer. Dr. Sharma is from The Ohio State University College of Medicine, and has been involved in the Amrit research right from the start. His explanation corresponds to modern physics. When you eat food, you are adding new energy and intelligence to your body. When you take the Amrit formula, it delivers a powerful message to the body. The nutrients stimulate the natural know-how of the cells. It doesn't matter whether it's a heart cell, immune cell or brain cell. Amrit reminds all of the cells how to function in the most healthy, intelligent way. Amrit promotes smart cells for greater health.
The Most Powerful Antioxidant Ever
The Critical Challenge to Your Health
More and more scientists agree — over 80% of all disease is related to the same underlying cause — free radicals. The clogged arteries that cause heart disease, the gene mutations at the basis of cancer and the inflammation behind arthritis — they are all directly related to free radicals. And so is the process of aging.
- What Are Free Radicals?
They're reactive oxygen-based chemicals that cause old cars to rust and your aging body to wear out and fall sick. Oddly enough, these same lethal molecules help protect your body from bacteria and viruses. But your free radical "bodyguards" also pose the greatest threat to your health. Stress, air pollution and chemicals in your food generate an army of excess free radicals that your body just can't handle. Scientists estimate that every day over 10,000 free radicals bombard each of the cells in your body!
- Your Body Needs Help
The only hope against relentless free radical attacks is a combination of enzymes and nutrients called antioxidants. Your body produces powerful antioxidant enzymes to control free radical damage. But there aren't enough enzymes to stop the ravenous hoard of free radicals that is eating your body alive — cell-by-cell.
- Vitamins? They're Not Much Help
Vitamins A, C and E help neutralize free radicals. But their contribution is minimal. For example, SOD, one of your body's enzymes, can scavenge thousands of free radicals before it wears out. But a molecule of vitamin E can deactivate only one free radical. You'd have to eat broccoli by the bushel to make a dent. Even whole bottles of vitamin C wouldn't solve the problem. And such megadoses of vitamins could make you sick.
Overcome Free Radicals and Create Total Health
The most powerful way to reinforce your body's defenses and eliminate free radicals is to take Amrit. It is at least 1,000 times more potent than vitamins C or E, as well as the antioxidant drug probucol. And scientific research proves it!
- Defeat Every Foe
Isolated vitamins can defuse only one type of free radical. Amrit contains a wide variety of plant-based phytochemicals or nutrients. In one stroke, it wipes out all the different types of free radicals. Amrit is the true full-spectrum antioxidant.
- Protect Your Whole Body
Amrit is versatile as well as powerful. Individual nutrients have a limited effect. For example, vitamin C is water-based, so it can help only outside of your cells. Vitamin E is fat-based and helps only inside of the cells. Amrit contains both water-soluble and fat-soluble nutrients. That means it works both inside and outside of your cells. It eliminates free radicals throughout your entire body.
- The Health Food Champion
Aging and the overwhelming majority of health problems are related to free radicals. A major cause for poor health raises the possibility of a major solution — reduce free radical damage in the body.
Your Heart is Under Attack
Every 34 seconds an American dies of heart disease. It causes nearly half of all deaths in the U.S., which makes heart disease the number one killer. The underlying cause of heart disease is clogged arteries (atherosclerosis). The latest research reveals that the main culprits behind atherosclerosis are free radical damage and a particular type of cholesterol called low density lipoprotein (LDL). Free radicals attack both the LDL cholesterol and the lining of your arteries. Then, the oxidized or "damaged" LDL piles up inside the injured artery walls and begins to block the flow of blood. As your arteries clog up, they suffer from oxygen starvation (hypoxia), which whips the free radical attacks into a wild frenzy. Blood platelets also become part of the problem. If you cut your finger, blood platelet cells form a clot to stop the bleeding. But in damaged arteries that are full of free radicals, too many platelets "aggregate" and the extra blood clots further block off your arteries. Stress, fatty foods and other factors promote spasms (vasospasm) in the blood vessels that temporarily restrict circulation. When an artery is already clogged, a spasm can result in a sudden heart attack.
Help Your Cardiovascular System to Work Smart and Be Healthy
Amrit promotes the normal, healthy functions of the heart and the whole cardiovascular system. Published research at several universities shows that Amrit significantly increases the resistance to free radical attack. This helps protect the LDL and keep the arteries clear and healthy. Research also shows that Amrit decreases blood platelet aggregation, which aids the normal, healthy flow of blood through the arteries. Besides the modern research, ancient ayurvedic texts confirm that Amrit strengthens the cardiovascular system. It helps the body clean out impurities (ama) that can clog up the microcirculatory channels (shrotas).
How to Feel Younger and Happier for the Rest of Your Life
Vitality and good health are easy to take for granted. After all, the human machine was designed for dynamism. And if we're already leading active, happy lives, why do we need to enhance our health? And why do we need to take supplements? The answer is that even in good health, negative factors are working against us daily. These factors include pollution and pesticides, poor diet and stress. Medical science has located the consequences in the form of free radicals, the body's silent villains. We may not be aware of their presence, but free radical damage is cumulative. They threaten our immune system. They block our energy. They cloud our thinking. They inhibit our lives. Even in times of health, we want to keep free radicals in check. Health and longevity begin in the cells. Amrit is a natural formula that acts at the fundamental level of the physiology — within every cell. Research shows its super-antioxidant action is 1,000 times more powerful than vitamin C or E in removing the blocks that impair optimal performance. Amrit strengthens the immune system and promotes vitality. It enlivens the body's own natural intelligence, helping us maintain a state of peak health. Consumers report that Amrit does much more than help keep them healthy. It raises their lives to a new level of happiness, energy, alertness and inner calm. In this health-conscious age, consumers are bombarded by herbs and remedies, all promising new energy and prolonged life. What sets Amrit apart is its ancient, time-tested formula. The same powerful synergy of herbs and fruit that has offered life-enhancing effects for over 5,000 years is confirmed by medical science as today's ultimate antioxidant formula. Amrit's effects will set you apart from those who think good health merely means lack of disease. This formula is still available under the original name: Amrit Kalash, the "golden cup of immortality" — a name that more and more doctors recommend.
Immunity and Prevention
Your Immune System Overreacts and Damages Healthy Cells
Your immune system defends your body with a sophisticated network of specialized cells and biochemicals. But the basics are simple. When bacteria or viruses invade your body, they attack and injure the local cells. The damaged cells send out a chemical cry for help that stimulates a defense alarm. At the core of your defense is an army of white blood cells produced mainly in your bone marrow. The cells have technical names such as lymphocytes, neutrophils and macrophages. The lymphocytes become T-cells and B-cells. The T-cells are like the commanding officers. They coordinate your body's counterattack against invading viruses, as well as tumor cells. The B-cells are the intelligence experts that decode the viruses or bacteria and generate proteins called antibodies that disarm the enemy. For example, the neutrophils and macrophages are like your infantry and tanks. Through the inflammatory response they bomb the enemy with deadly free radicals. The problem is that your "soldier" white blood cells are too enthusiastic. The attack quickly goes out of control. There is a lot of "friendly fire" and "civilian" casualties. Your immune system's free radical "weapons" kill many of your own white blood cells and damage any healthy tissue that gets in the way. As the body ages, this type of self-inflicted damage increases. The immune system also begins to lose its ability to fight off infectious disease. It becomes weaker and malfunctions.
Make Your Immune System More Powerful
In four different research studies Amrit significantly boosted the immune response, improved coordination and bolstered defenses. The macrophage cells which kill bacteria became more powerful and effective. This increase in power was also balanced. The extra white blood cells and antibodies were generated only when the body was attacked and called for help. The ancient ayurvedic medical texts also report that the formula for Amrit strengthens the immune system. It improves cellular tissues and hormone balance.
The Mind and Nervous System:
Stress Interferes With Brain Functioning and Inhibits the Use of Full Mental Potential
In recent years, scientists and doctors have begun to recognize the deep relationship between the health of the mind and the body. Stress is linked to the majority of disease. No wonder sales of sedatives and antidepressant drugs are at an all-time high. Like stress, free radicals are also linked to most diseases. The negative psychological impact of emotional stress is directly related to the negative chemical and physical effects of free radicals. In fact, research indicates that stress dramatically increases free radical levels in the body. This is especially bad news for your brain, which is more susceptible to free radical damage than other parts of your body. Brain cells have high levels of the polyunsaturated fats that free radicals like to attack. The brain also requires lots of energy for all of its electrical and nervous system functions. The unfortunate by-product is that the cellular power plants (mitochondria) in the brain generate a flood of free radicals. The resulting damage is related to many types of mental and nervous system disorders including Parkinson's disease, autism and schizophrenia. Your brain and nervous system are the link between your mind and the rest of your body. That's how your mind communicates with your body. When stress and free radicals break down your brain cells, it certainly weakens your physical health. But it can also have a negative effect on your intelligence, alertness, memory, job performance and personal relationships.
Protect Your Brain, Improve Mental Skills
When it comes to your mind, brain and nervous system, Amrit is exceptional. The research has established that Amrit is the most powerful antioxidant. Studies on the brain in particular show a significant decrease in free radical generation. But that's just the beginning. Amrit can be traced back thousands of years to the world's original system of healthcare — ayurveda. The ancient texts explain how Amrit is designed especially to improve mental functioning and develop higher states of consciousness. Ayurveda divides your mental abilities into three categories — learning new information (dhi), retaining and applying the information (dhriti), and memory (smriti). The precise combination of herbs in Amrit nourishes and strengthens all of these abilities.
