An ancient herb backed by science: your answer to candida-related health problems
In 1982 scientists at the University of Canterbury discovered an extract from New Zealand’s horopito plant containing polygodial was more effective at killingCandida albicansthan the powerful pharmaceutical anti-Candida drug, Amphotericin B.
The graph shows polygodial has a larger zone inhibiting the growth ofCandida albicansand the zone is formed within 1 day. This means that polygodial has stronger and faster antifungal action than Amphotericin B. (Reference: McCallion et al 1982. Planta Medica, vol 44, pp134-138)
Three years later Forest Herbs Research began developing ways to offer this ancient herb’s candida killing benefits to you in Kolorex’s horopito-based range of natural health products.
Years of Clinical Research
Kolorex products have been used in a number of clinical studies conducted over nearly 30 years. These studies show that Kolorex provides fast, effective relief from an array of symptoms related toCandidaovergrowth.
Horopito, (Pseudowintera colorata) only grows in New Zealand. This ancient shrub is a member of the primitive Winteraceae family, more common to the Southern Pacific regions. Simply put the plant is ancient – one of the first flowering plants almost unchanged for 65 million year (according to fossil records).
Horopito has a long history of medicinal use by Maori. The leaves were bruised, steeped in water and used for paipai (a skin disease) and venereal diseases (such as thrush/candida)
The leaves were also chewed for toothache and were rubbed on mothers’ breasts for weaning infants. When the Europeans arrived to New Zealand, they to adopted to use Horopito for its medicinal qualities.
Studies have highlighted excellent antibacterial and anti-fungal activity that we believe makes it excellent for treating the skin for any blemishes or cuts instead of using synthetic chemicals that many products use for this purpose.
Horopito has a very primitive vascular system – not built for vigorous growth and is very susceptible to drought. It is found in abundance because its hot taste repels predators, hence dense horopito undergrowth in deer country.
Its coming up to that time of year, where money is tight and expectations are high... well why not make some creams/ointments for your family/friends and work colleagues.
These will sit in the house for a while and be a reminder throughout the year, that you gifted a thoughtful and practical gift all under a tenner!
Here is some basic ideas... its a little messy, so suggest you do this when the kitchen is clear and dinner is over!
KOPAKOPA (PLANTAGO, PLANTAIN)
ARO - Kopakopa rau (leafs) and wai (water) are widely used for treating sunburns, stings, insect bites, rashes, burns, blisters, and cuts, also applied to swollen joints, sore muscles, sprains, sore feet sore throats, and mouth sores.
Kopakopa is a excellent wound healer.
ELEMENT PAPATŪĀNUKU (EARTH)
example what puts out fire over water is dirt (earth)
so for hot swelling (kopakopa poultice or paewhenua dock leaf) burns sun burn some eczema's (not medically proven - but we know it works for our guys)
So here goes....
100ml kopakopa oil
100ml kopakopa water
heat all ingredients genetly ( remembering if you over heat carrier oil's the medicinal properties will be lost)
heating genetly & separately
in a bowl add your water then put in your oil and with an electric blender on the lowest power setting, gently start to blend together then slowly pour your beeswax in to the mixture.
keep blending until you have a nice cream texture, some people blend slow & gently but we suggest blend fast once its a creamy consistency, it can take up to 20 minutes to blend some times more some times less - it varies on the temperature and quality of your equipment.
pour your cream in to a snap lock bag - just the cheap sandwich type bags
seal the bag up
cut the corner (piping bag effect)
pipe in to your jars and label keep in a cool place not directly in the sun (the heat and sun will expire your cream)
After 3 months if they have changed colour or changed scent - dispose and make some more for Easter!!!
change the Rau.. use kopakoa water & change the oil to another rau
(Tataramoa) or vice versa.
paewhenua water & kopakopa oil
manuka oil & kawakawa wai
Tanekaha water & Tohetake oil
kopakopa water & kawakawa oil
