Carthamus

Origin:

The dried and ground flowers of both plants are used. In Thai Kham foi and Krachiap prio. Both plants grow in northern Thailand and are used in the TTM for millennia as a blood tonic and blood purifier. Even with kidney stones, bladder stones and as an expectorant it used in folk medicine.

Effect:

After high total cholesterol and especially the dangerous LDL have become important for the prevention of coronary heart disease and infarction in recent decades, these plants have been studied intensively. We know that dyslipidemia and elevated cholesterol levels represent a major risk factor for infarction. Austria is world’s No.2 after Poland in CHD, heart attack and atherosclerosis as the cause of death. Recent research, however, has discovered another risk factor that is certainly the largest in this event, namely the inflammation rate measured in the body as C-reactive protein (CRP). This should not be higher than 0 to 3. We now know for sure that this value is the most important indicator of heart attack risk. If the plaques ignite, the infarct greets. The pharmaceutical industry has already brought new drugs for treatment on the market and in the near future will be. Effective but unfortunately fraught with side effects such as myopathy and much more.
Carthamus tinctorius and Hibiscus sabdariffa, which is a particular species from Thailand, can both reduce total cholesterol but rather the CRP rate. There is a colour pigment in the flower of this particular hibiscus (Hibiscus there are a lot of types) that contains a high content of anthocyanins and the specific anthocyanin, which acts anti-inflammatory to the endothelium in the vascular, but also in the tissue. Furthermore, it has anti-tumour activity and acts an anti-viral, antibacterial, and also as the most important antioxidant. A strong advertising campaign about the problem of myocardial infarction has oc¬curred in the past few weeks in all media, as the previous efforts (eating habits, fatty acids, lack of exercise, stress, so naturally lower cholesterol) brought no changes. In this advertising there will be a lot of talk about CRP in the pharmaceutical media. They want to treat all diabetics with statins by default, as the statistics show that this group is one of the most endangered of the population. These plants have an antitumor effect through inhibition of tumour cell growth, inhibition of enzyme activity and inhibition of promutagenic tyrosine kinases and inhibition of oxidative stress on the vessel.

Indication:

Reduction in total cholesterol, especially the LDL fraction, reduction of CRP and thus prevention of lipid disorders, coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, reduction of infarct risk in a natural way without chemicals, mode of action similar to the “French paradox”, but backed and proven in clinical studies by inhibition of inflammation on the endothelium. Prevention of many civilization diseases.

Contraindication:

None known to date.
Dosage:

Twice a day, 1 capsule in the morning, 1 capsule in the evening before dinner
Substance:

Carthamus tinctorius & Hibiscus sabdariffa

Vitamins in TTM products

In all products of the TTM there is “Crude Powder”, which means that the carefully dried and effective plant parts were ground to a fine powder without preservatives or excipients and contain essential vitamins. Much more important is that unlike random ingested multivitamin preparations, which contain no secondary plant substances, TTM products contain the same vitamins from natural botanicals. The same is also true for subtle content.
Simply put, secondary plant ingredients are in plants, which provide them, among other thing with a colour. Thus, the “traffic light” rule yellow, red, green, is a simple instruction, which vitamins are needed daily. Red fruits, which contain so-called “anthocyanins”, are very important. Hibiscus sabdariffa – red – and Carthamus tinctorius – yellow – are those plants. They do not only protect your immune system, but more importantly, your vessels. An important protection against heart attacks, diabetes, atherosclerosis and stroke is therefore an intact vascular system. Prevent yourself from these dangerous diseases by the regular consumption of antioxidants and phytochemicals. Existing risk factors can also be minimized by such use.
