Q&A: Health and Health food – 8th Pine Pollen & Lophatherum Essence series

1. Will dependence on Guozhen Pine Pollen and Lophatherum Essence be created?

In daily life, dependence refers to an impossible separation and abandonment of some medicine and addictions, such as alcohol, Nicotine, sleeping pills, cathartic and anodyne, which is a kind of dependence on something caused by people’s bad life styles or diseases.

Pine Pollen and Lophatherum Essence can meet the daily need for nutrients, which is a necessity for daily life and like meals, water, fruits and vegetables without any “dependence”.

2. Can Guozhen Pine Pollen and Lophatherum Essence help lose weight?

There is an internal cause and external cause for obesity. The internal cause is: a connection with genetic genes with a hereditary tendency confirmed by many researches. The external cause is: an accumulation of fat in the body caused by nutrient imbalance resulted from unbalanced diet, bad living styles and lack of physical exercises and the maladjustment of the digestive system and endocrine system. Obesity is followed by laziness, which consequently creates a vicious circle. It is a disease of living styles as well as a metabolic syndrome.

Guozhen Pine Pollen can provide well-balanced nutrients with low energy, high mineral, and natural edible fiber in nutrition control whereas Guozhen Lophatherum Essence can effectively diminish fat accumulation by regulating fat metabolism with flavone.
Weight losing is a complicated matter and systematic project that can only be successfully treated with scientific approaches earnestly and persistently.

There are evaluation criteria for weight-loss, and more weight loss is not necessarily associated with better effect.

3. Is there any hormone in Guozhen Pine Pollen and Lophatherum Essence?

Guozhen Pine Pollen and Lophatherum Essence are health foods without any animal hormone, insect hormone, dope and toxic side-effects.

Hormones are a kind of organic substance synthesized and secreted by certain idiosyncratic cells of animals and plants which can effectively regulate physiological activities. Animal hormones are chemical substances for signal transmission in the body whose role is to regulate the physiological functions (metabolism, growth, development and reproduction) in the body and maintain the relative stability of the body environment.

Plant hormones are natural organic compounds that can regulate plant growth and belong to the steroid or simple organic acid family. Despite the use of “hormone”, they differ greatly from animal hormone in terms of the origin, biological synthesis, transmission process and effects in that it is just a growth factor for plants without any negative effect on the body.

7. How can Guozhen Lophatherum Essence have an anti-aging effect?

The decline of the biological system caused by the reaction of free radicals is illuminated by more and more facts since the theory on free radical-caused aging was put forward by Harman in 1954. Oxygen free radicals are produced by the cells breathing, which produces a toxic effect on them. Therefore, the constant reaction of free radicals in cells and tissues may be the main cause of aging. Bamboo leaf flavone’s high performance against free radicals is the basis of its anti-aging effect.

8. What is the mechanism of Guozhen Lophatherum Essence in alleviating cough and removing phlegm, heat and toxic materials?

Cough is a defensive reaction caused by the stimulation of foreign substances or secretion in the respiratory tract. When organs such as the nasal cavity, pharynx, and the bronchial wall are stimulated, the nerve impulse is transmitted through the vagus nerve to the central cough center whose nerve impulse is transmitted through vagus nerve and motor nerve to the smooth muscle, respiratory muscle and laryngitic muscle after it is excited, which consequently causes cough. Bamboo leaf flavone’s removal of cough and phlegm is shown:

(1) as preparations for the mucous blood vessel’s contraction and the tracheal smooth muscle’s relaxation,

(2) to reduce sputum viscosity and encourage it to be coughed out,

(3) to restrain pathogenic bacteria of chronic pharyngitis effectively, thus arresting cough without any addiction.
Bamboo leaf flavone’s heat-removing and detoxification effect is closely connected with its protection against free radicals, oxidation, bacteria, virus and inflammation and improvement of immunity. Its detoxification effect has been confirmed by its prolongation of the life of the white mouse poisoned with sodium nitrite, potassium cyanide and lidocaine, respectively, through experiments.

9. Why does Guozhen Lophatherum Essence have an anti-inflammatory effect?

Inflammation in the body, as an extraordinarily common and important basic pathological process, is mainly a defensive organic reaction brought on by different kinds of inflammation-inducing genes which cause partial organic transformation, effusion and cellular hyperplasia. Its elimination is decided by the interaction between one’s capacity against diseases and inflammation-inducing genes. The surplus free radicals in the body will damage cells and tissues and stimulate the release inflammation-inducing genes. Bamboo leaf flavone can scavenge free radicals and control and eliminate inflammation. Long-term administration of Lophatherum Essence can improve one’s immunity and prevent inflammation.

10. What antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects of Guozhen Lophatherum Essence and its inhibitory effect on hyperplasia of prostate?

Inflammation in the body is a common but important pathologic process and a defense-based histologic reaction during which the action of various inflammation-causing factors on the organism causes degeneration and exudation of the tissues as well as proliferation of tissue cells. Removal of inflammations depends on the interaction between the body’s capacity against diseases and the inflammation-causing factors. Excess free radicals in the body can damage cells and tissues, and trigger the body to release various inflammation-causing factors. EOB-f can remove free radicals effectively and inhibit and diminish inflammations. Chronic use of Guozhen Lophatherum Essence can enhance immunity and prevent inflammations.
