Functional Food

lemongrass hydrosol

Informed Choice!

Lemongrass is a functional food, a complementary alternative medicine traditionally used in Southeast Asia and India to manage hypertension, high sugar, excess water retention and high cholesterol.

Our lemongrass hydrosol is the pure water distillate. Stable for up to 2 years, in cool, dry place away from sunlight. For every 1,000 kg leaves, we only recover around 10-12% hydrosol, which is the estimated water content of the fresh leaves.

Fast-acting.
No more boiling!
Convenience in a bottle.
Less than 10% the cost of your maintenance drugs.
Without the bad side effects to the kidney, liver and heart.
100% natural.

How to use

Dosage and Frequency

2-3 tablespoons (10 to 15 mL) lemongrass hydrosol to every 220 mL (1 cup) water.

3x daily
Empty stomach in the morning .
15 minutes before lunch and dinner.

Best results

1. Drink together with your medication.
2. Do a lab test after 1 week. Why continue a food if it doesn't give you the results you expect, right?
3. Do a confirmatory lab test after 1 month.

Verifiable and replicable results!

Show both results to your attending physician and allow him / her to be the one to reduce / remove drugs based on the consistent improvements evident in your lab tests.

Lemongrass is just a food, a functional food providing the kidneys and liver (nephroprotective and hepatopathy management) with antioxidants so that they can begin repair and allow the organs to do their function again : disposal (urination, defecation and perspiration).

Bio-accumulations (high blood sugar, high blood pressure, high creatinine, high uric acid) occur when the body is unable to filter and dispose properly, these are the functions of the kidneys and liver.

Drink water

Drink the right amount of water, 8 glasses of water daily.
Coffee is not water. Coke is not water. Flush them with the same amount of water. Lemongrass hydrosol will enable your body to urinate all those excess water.

Side effects

Everything in excess has a bad side effect. For lemongrass, leg cramps (elektrolyte loss due to frequent urination).
Healthy urination frequency should be at least 4x daily. Healthy defecation frequency should be at least once daily

Drink the right amount of water ~ One should never reach the point of being thirsty.

"Antidote"

Eat 1 banana / 1 mango / 1 tablespoon of raisins, daily to support potassium or electrolyte level.

Caution

Not for pregnant women.
Do not exceed recommended dose.
Unless the patient is strictly monitoring his/her sugar levels, lemongrass is not for insulin-dependent diabetics and those suffering from low potassium.

Lemongrass is only considered as "food / herb" by the FDA and not as a traditional medicine. The DOH (Department of Health) has lemongrass in its 100 Philippine traditional medicines more than 30 years ago. Only lagundi has fully passed the "traditional medicinal plant" category duly recognized by the FDA.
