Reviewing HP Paractive
In this post, I want to review as well as explain the ingredients that are contained in the herbal supplement HP Paractive (in tincture form) and its capsule version which is CDH Paractive.
The tincture version of the supplement HP Paractive contains several herbal ingredients that are traditionally used to treat parasites, such as black walnut hulls, wormwood herb, clove herb, fennel seed, papaya, and male fern. These ingredients are believed to have different effects on the body that may contribute to their antiparasitic properties.
Black walnut hulls are rich in tannins and other compounds that are toxic to parasites. Wormwood herb contains a compound called artemisinin, which has antimalarial and antiparasitic properties. Clove herb is believed to have antiparasitic and antifungal properties due to its eugenol content. Fennel seed is a carminative herb that may help relieve digestive symptoms associated with parasitic infections. Papaya contains an enzyme called papain, which has been studied for its potential ability to digest and eliminate parasites. Male fern contains a compound called filicin, which is believed to have antiparasitic properties. I am sure that you can see that combining the above ingredients into a single formula will increase the possibility of eliminating any parasite problems.
The above ingredients are carefully selected from suppliers that produce “Wild Crafted” herbs, that allow for the most outstanding quality and strength. In addition, the herbs are also fermented and constantly monitored for a minimum period of three months, since a longer fermentation process creates a stronger and much more effective tincture. Alcohol is also listed as an ingredient in this supplement, and serves as a method to extract the active compounds from the herbs in addition it acts as a preservative to extend the shelf life of the product when properly stored and can have a shelf-life of up to five years.
Country Doctor recommends that 30 drops, or one dropper full be taken daily until the entire bottle has been consumed.
When we discuss this herbal supplement in its capsule form, CDH Paractive, the ingredients are the same except you are receiving the actual plant version of the product. CDH Paractive has not been fermented in alcohol and is contained in a gelatin capsule; comprising: cellulose, and Magnesium Silicate (which is a lubricant).
The recommended use of CDH Paractive, in capsule form, is a total of two capsules daily until the entire contents of the bottle have been exhausted.
The following warning is issued by Country Doctor Herbals states that you should consult a health professional before using either version of Paractive if you are pregnant, nursing, or have an existing medical professional. Additionally, you should stop using either version of Paractive if you experience any adverse reaction.
An additional point that Country Doctor shares is that if there are any types of pets in the household or if you work in the livestock industry, at any level, you should be aware of parasite management by using this herbal supplement at least four times a year, concentrating at the seasons changing cycle, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.
