Hemo Guard Supreme

Price: $35.95
Hemo Guard Supreme™ is packaged in a bottle containing 120 veggie capsules, each containing approximately 600 mg of a proprietary blend of: Carica papaya L (green papaya), Zingiber officinale (ginger), Ginkgo biloba, Punica granatum (pomegranate) and bromelain without fillers, binders, or excipients.

Hemo Guard Supreme™ was developed for people who may be prone to hypercoagulation. Hypercoagulation is a condition where fibrin builds up in the various blood vessels. In its extreme, fibrin deposition can lead to deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolisms, heart attacks, and stroke. In its less severe form it can possibly lead to phlebitis, fibromyalgia (by cutting off blood flow), I.B.S., chronic low grade infections where the microbes are “protected” by residing in the fibrin meshes, miscarriages, headaches, chronic pain, etc.

Traditional medicine sees the following as potential causes: immobilization, malignancy, genetic disorders, certain medications such as tamoxifen, pregnancy, supplemental estrogen, trauma, surgery, and nephrotic syndrome.

Recent research by David Berg and many others have also implicated the following in causing hypercoagulation: many forms of infection (viral, parasitic, bacterial, and fungal) as well as toxic chemicals. The fibrin formation may be the body’s attempt to wall off the microbes.

It is theorized by some that these newer recognized causes may account for many cases of pulmonary embolisms that were previously labeled as idiopathic.

To cause hypercoagulation there may be an excess of prothrombin, thrombin or fibrinogen or a deficiency or fibrin breakdown chemicals: plasmin, plasminogen, tissue plasminogen activator or a deficiency of antithrombin III.

Pharmaceutical intervention can be very effective but in some people can lead to serious side effects (typically bleeding events). The drugs though can be life saving and you should follow your physician’s advice.

In less severe cases, with the consent of your physician, there are certain herbs and other lifestyle changes that can discourage hypercoagulation.

Hemo Guard is a combination of some of the more effective agents. It contains the following:

1) Ginkgo biloba: Gingko has been used for many years for memory enhancement. One property that was reported in a study in China is that it is a potent antagonist of platelet activating factor and thus may help prevent blood clots and hypercoagulation. The World Health Organization also reported that is helpful in treating cerebrovascular insufficiency as well as peripheral artery occlusive disease. It should not be used if you are on anticoagulant therapy.

2) Ginger root: Studies at the University of Maryland suggest that Ginger has blood thinning properties. A research study conducted in Australia looked at the ability of ginger to stop or reduce platelet activation induced by arachidonic acid in human blood. They also compared and contrasted the anticoagulant properties of ginger with those of aspirin. The report concluded that ginger could prevent blood platelets from adhering together. This might be due to the inhibition of the enzyme COX-1. The report also concluded that ginger compounds and the derivatives of ginger are more effective as antiplatelet agents than aspirin.

3) Pomegranate Fruit: Pomegranate has been shown to work well as a blood thinner. Many prominent alternative medicine practitioners add it to the regimen of patients with hypercoagulation disorders.

4) Green Papaya: The strong proteolytic enzymes in papaya may assist in fibrinolysis and disolution of biofilms.

5) Bromelain: A powerful anti-inflammatory agent. Its anti-inflammatory activity appears to be due to a variety of physiological actions. This appears to include inhibiting the generation of bradykinin at the inflammatory site via depletion of the plasma kallikrein system. It also limits the formation of fibrin (clots) by reduction of clotting cascade intermediates. Bromelain has also been shown in multiple studies to stimulate the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin, resulting in increased fibrinolysis (dissolution of clots/fibrin). This combination of effects can make it very useful in people with hypercoagulation tendencies.

Hemo Guard should not be used if the patient is on ‘blood thinners” such as warfarin and other similar pharmaceuticals. If the patient is not on these, it may prove to be a useful tool. It may also be used to possibly prevent conditions in people who have family histories of some of the previously mentioned hypercoguation caused problems.

Other contraindications include pregnancy and latex allergies.

As with any herbal regimen, we encourage you to consult your physician to see if there is a more serious condition warranting more aggressive intervention.

Recommended Dose: 1 cap three times daily between meals. Dosage may be increased during times of acute infection to discourage hypercoagulation.
