EN-V is a combination of six herbal extracts blended with one of BioPure’s signature liposomal products, LipoSorbTM. EN-V is formulated with extracts from herbs that have long histories of safe, traditional uses, and are known to provide support to the body’s defenses.* They are listed below:
St. John’s Wort, Hypericum perforatum, contains the powerful quinone known as Hypericin. Studies show the herb positively affecting mood stabilization via the influence of neurotransmitters to reduce the body’s stress response and improve sleep quality.*
Reishi, Ganoderma lucidum, is a fungus that has been used extensively in Chinese tradition and shows the potential to support the liver, as well as inhibit membrane lipid peroxidation and the formation of free radicals.*
Stinging Nettle, Urtica dioica, is a tonic herb that interacts with multiple systems of the body. Research shows that this plant improves function of the kidneys, resulting in increased fluid circulation and waste removal in the body.*
Olive Leaf, Olea europaea, contains Oleuropein, with many beneficial properties.*
Bitter Melon, Momordica charantia, is well known for its beneficial use in regulating lipid peroxidation and blood sugar balance, as well as protecting neurons and liver cells.*
Green Tea, Camellia sinensis, contains catechins that exert protective effects, supporting the body’s immune responses.*
We have combined these beneficial herbs with BioPure’s LipoSorbTM formula. This unique liposomal phospholipid is derived from soy lecithin, but after a special extraction process, tests “soy protein free”, meaning it should be safe to use by those with allergies to soy. Incorporation of the herbs with LipoSorbTM ensures their best possible bioavailability, absorption, and effectiveness.*
