The Scientific Report on the Ingredients

Cranberry

Cranberry is perhaps best known for its role in preventing UTIs. The high level of proanthocyanidins in cranberries helps lower the adhesion of certain bacteria to the urinary-tract walls, in turn fighting off infections. According to a study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, cranberry helps prevent UTIs. However, cranberry juice is far less effective since it takes an extremely large concentration of cranberry to prevent bacterial adhesion.

“Cranberry juice is a rich source of phytonutrients, including proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins and phenolic acids,” explained Ana Rodriguez-Mateos from University Duesseldorf, Germany. “Due to this robust profile of polyphenols, our team sought to evaluate the immediate vascular impact of drinking one, 450 ml glass of cranberry juice with a different range of concentrations of cranberry-polyphenols,” Rodriguez-Mateos noted.

Researchers gave 10 healthy men, between the ages of 18-40 years, 450 ml (just under two cups) of sweetened cranberry juice made from concentrate. The cranberry concentrate was prepared with water to concentrations ranging from zero to 117 percent. The amount of cranberry-polyphenols increased with the concentration. The researchers detected significant& vascular function improvements and improved blood flow in the men after drinking cranberry juice. They, however, found that improvement in vascular function was dose-dependent.

This is why RNG Women’s Formula Tea is your sure best to get the right dose to support your health.

Hibiscus Sabdariffa

Combining Cranberry and Hibiscus Tea in one formula is your topmost brand to improve on your health.  Hibiscus tea is known for its delicious taste, and while it has been enjoyed in numerous ways in customs across the globe, primarily to treat high blood pressure, it also has many other powerful healing benefits. According to studies keeping your intake of antioxidants up is a great way to prevent health issues, and hibiscus has the bonus of also containing loads of the well-known antioxidant vitamin C. In a Taiwanese laboratory study, extract from Hibiscus sabdariffa was found to be toxic to cancer cells, and especially effective in killing human gastric carcinoma cells, and has also been shown to kill leukaemia cells.

Hibiscus extract has even shown promise in adding metabolic function which is great news for those with metabolic syndrome or anyone looking to lose weight, particularly if you suffer from obesity. Studies have found after just one month with daily doses an impressive improvement in glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride levels as well as insulin resistance. Even more impressive is the decrease it causes in serum free fatty acids, high levels of which are associated with obesity and uncontrolled diabetes.

There is no denying the powerful healing benefits of this deliciously fragrant tropical drink, with new studies continually proving the benefits of what the Egyptian Pharaohs enjoyed as a refreshing, healing beverage. As with most potent natural healers, it is not to be enjoyed in large amounts without caution, and should be avoided by pregnant women altogether. Researchers attribute these effects of hibiscus extract to the potent levels of polyphenol compounds, found in hibiscus flowers, also recognized for their disease prevention, antioxidant and anti-aging properties.

The dried calyces of the hibiscus flower used to brew the tea are known to contain high levels of antioxidants essential to our body’s natural daily detox efforts. They also work to prevent disease and fight low-grade chronic inflammation, which research has linked to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, IBS, Crohn’s and so many more chronic diseases and health issues.

Extracts from the Hibiscus sabdariffa flower prevent bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract, and a recent six-month study involving forty women with a history of frequent UTIs revealed that the use of hibiscus extract decreased the likeliness of infection by 89 percent. Hibiscus boasts a range of powerful compounds that prevent E. coli from adhering to the urinary tract and bladder wall linings. Both the flower and calyx are abundant in bacteriostatic polyphenols, including flavonoids, sambubiosides, and proanthocyanidins. In particular, the flavonoid gossypetin (-hexahydroxy flavone) found in hibiscus has been identified as a distinct antimicrobial compound with powerful effects.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial, women taking hibiscus experienced a 77% reduction in UTIs. Sixty-one women participated in the 6-month study, and 59 women completed the entire study. All of them had a history of frequent UTIs (more than four per year, including one or more in the three months prior to the start of the study). The women were randomly assigned to one of three groups receiving a daily dose of 200 mg of hibiscus extract standardized to 90% polyphenols; 200 mg of hibiscus extract standardized to 60% polyphenols; or placebo. Compared to the control group, women taking the hibiscus concentrations experienced a 77% decrease in infections, as well as overall improvement in urinary comfort.

According to in vitro research, hibiscus also reduces contamination of both E. coli and Candida albicans, the fungus responsible for yeast infections. The antimicrobial effect was found to be immediate and complete after only one day. In addition, when hibiscus was compared to cranberry in vitro, the hibiscus had a stronger antimicrobial effect, particularly against Candida albicans. Consuming hibiscus tea daily during weight loss may help lower high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A review published in 2013 in the journal “Fitoterapia” reports that although more research is needed to determine specific recommendations, consuming hibiscus tea lowers blood pressure in people with type 2 diabetes. The review showed that the tea may help lower total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride levels, while increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, which is the good cholesterol.

Ginger

Ginger (Zingiber officinale), on the other hand in this invention is used for ages in the East, has a very peculiar flavor. It is slightly sweet, refreshing, and spicy. The part that use is the rhizome because of its properties. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. According to a review of 12 studies that included a total of 1,278 pregnant women, 1.1-1.5 grams of ginger can significantly reduce symptoms of nausea.

In one study, consuming 2 grams of ginger per day, for 11 days, significantly reduced muscle pain in people performing elbow exercises. Ginger does not have an immediate impact, but may be effective at reducing the day-to-day progression of muscle pain. These effects are believed to be mediated by the anti-inflammatory properties.

Osteoarthritis is a common health problem. It involves degeneration of the joints in the body, leading to symptoms like joint pain and stiffness. In a controlled trial of 247 people with osteoarthritis of the knee, those who took ginger extract had less pain and required less pain medication. This area of research is relatively new, but ginger may have powerful anti-diabetic properties. In a recent 2015 study of 41 participants with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of ginger powder per day lowered fasting blood sugar by 12%. It also dramatically improved HbA1c (a marker for long-term blood sugar levels), leading to a 10% reduction over a period of 12 weeks. There was also a 28% reduction in the ApoB/ApoA-I ratio, and a 23% reduction in markers for oxidized lipoproteins. These are both major risk factors for heart disease.

Chronic indigestion (dyspepsia) is characterized by recurrent pain and discomfort in the upper part of the stomach. It is believed that delayed emptying of the stomach is a major driver of indigestion. Interestingly, ginger has been shown to speed up emptying of the stomach in people with this condition. After eating soup, ginger reduced the time it took for the stomach to empty from 16 to 12 minutes. In a study of 24 healthy individuals, 1.2 grams of ginger powder before a meal accelerated emptying of the stomach by 50%.

Menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea) refers to pain felt during a woman’s menstrual cycle. One of the traditional uses of ginger is for pain relief, including menstrual pain. In one study, 150 women were instructed to take 1 gram of ginger powder per day, for the first 3 days of the menstrual period. Ginger managed to reduce pain as effectively as the drugs mefenamic acid and ibuprofen. High levels of LDL lipoproteins (the “bad” cholesterol) are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. The foods you eat can have a strong influence on LDL levels. In a 45-day study of 85 individuals with high cholesterol, 3 grams of ginger powder caused significant reductions in most cholesterol markers.

This is supported by a study in hypothyroid rats, where ginger extract lowered LDL cholesterol to a similar extent as the cholesterol-lowering drug atorvastatin. Both studies also showed reductions in total cholesterol and blood triglycerides. Cancer is a very serious disease that is characterized by uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. Ginger extract has been studied as an alternative treatment for several forms of cancer. The anti-cancer properties are attributed to 6-gingerol, a substance that is found in large amounts in raw ginger.

In a study of 30 individuals, 2 grams of ginger extract per day significantly reduced pro-inflammatory signalling molecules in the colon. However; a follow-up study in individuals at a high risk of colon cancer did not confirm these findings. There is some, though limited, evidence that ginger may be effective against pancreatic cancer, breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation can accelerate the aging process. They are believed to be among the key drivers of Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline. Some studies in animals suggest that the antioxidants and bioactive compounds in ginger can inhibit inflammatory responses that occur in the brain. There is also some evidence that ginger can enhance brain function directly. In a study of 60 middle-aged women, ginger extract was shown to improve reaction time and working memory. There are also numerous studies in animals showing that ginger can protect against age-related decline in brain function.

Gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger, can help lower the risk of infections. In fact, ginger extract can inhibit the growth of many different types of bacteria (29, 30). It is very effective against the oral bacteria linked to inflammatory diseases in the gums, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Fresh ginger may also be effective against the RSV virus, a common cause of respiratory infections. Ginger increases blood flow, especially to the sexual organs. It also warms the blood and optimizes body’s temperature. Many cultures have used ginger as an aphrodisiac, as it can be made into a sweet tea or added to soups. As for its other benefits, ginger is also high in potassium, magnesium, and copper. It is a great anti-nausea substance, and has anti-inflammatory effects.

Considering the trend of changing features of the hormonal imbalance during the menstrual cycle and/or menopause, as well as the variations in the specific hormonal imbalance from person to person, it would be advantageous to introduce a compound which adapts to meet the specific needs of each person, both over time and from person to person. Herbs have been found to meet such needs says Thomas Newmark and Paul Schulick 1999.

The human body is able to identify the chemical components in which it is deficient. An interesting and important feature of herbal interaction with the human body is the fact that the body will only absorb from an herbal compound those chemical components in which the body is deficient. Those chemical components of the herbal compound which are not needed simply pass through the body without undue stress placed on the body.

Thus, although it is known to use certain herbs to relieve symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance in women, the benefits associated with the use of herbs makes it continually desirable to provide alternative herbal compositions for providing such relief. It is also continually desirable to provide a herbal composition which, in addition to relieving symptoms of hormonal imbalance, is also able to scavenge oxygen free radicals, thus providing antioxidant benefits.

Garlic

Fights cancer

According to the National Cancer Institute, garlic’s protective effects are thanks to its antibacterial properties and an ability to block the formation and activation of cancer-causing substances. According to CancerActive, the sulphur compound, allicin, in garlic appears to bind to breast cell receptor sites, preventing the action of cancer agents. Allicin is also a strong defence against infection – specifically bacteria, viruses, yeasts and intestinal infections.

The health benefits of garlic, cooked or raw, are only experienced when the clove has been crushed – this is when Allicin is released. This is why RNG Women’s Formula is formulated to release the allicin into your system.

Get glowing skin 

Garlic defends your skin from free radicals and slows down collagen reduction and loss of skin elasticity.

Beat colds and flu

study published in the journal Advances In Therapy found that a daily garlic intake can reduce the number of colds by 63%. Plus, the average length of cold symptoms was reduced to 70% – from five days to one and half days in the garlic supplement group.

Reduce high blood pressure

Garlic’s active compounds can significantly reduce blood pressure, comparable to the effects of prescribed drugs. Between 600 to 1 500 mg of garlic extract is found to be just as effective as prescribed drugs for hypertension in a 24-week period, according to a study published in the Pakistan Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences by Ashraf et al 2013.

 Fights heart disease

Eating garlic daily, either raw or cooked in food, helps lower cholesterol – once again thanks to garlic’s antioxidant properties of allicin. A study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine found the effect of garlic on total cholesterol in people with elevated levels, moderately reduced cholesterol by Stevinson et al 2000.

Improves performance

Not only does garlic increase exercise capacity, it also helps reduce exercise-induced fatigue. A study published in the Indian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology found that participants with heart disease who took garlic oil over a six weeks saw a reduction in peak heart rate by as much as 12%, in addition to an improvement in treadmill physical endurance according to Verma et al 2005.

Boost bone health

Fresh garlic is jam packed with nutrients including zinc, manganese, vitamin B6 and vitamin C.  Risa Groux, a holistic nutritionist explains that garlic is high in manganese, which contains enzymes and antioxidants, and facilitates the formation of bones and connective tissues, bone metabolism and calcium absorption.

And here is some great news for the ladies – garlic may help reduce bone loss through increasing oestrogen. A study  by Mukherjee et al 2007 published in The Journal of Phytotherapy Research found garlic oil was able to preserve skeletal health, providing the nutrients for building blocks for healthy, strong bones.

Fenugreek

Both men and women use fenugreek to improve sexual interest. Women who are breast-feeding sometimes use fenugreek to promote milk flow. Fenugreek is sometimes used as a poultice.

Pumpkin seed

Effects on urinary health

In general, pumpkin seed oil seems to have a positive effect on the urinary tract. This tract is made up of the kidneys, the bladder, and the urethra, which connects the bladder to the urinary opening.

Researchers in a small study by Nishimura et al 2014 gave participants between 500 and 1,000 milligrams of pumpkin seed oil. The participants saw a drastic improvement in their overactive bladder symptoms, including wetting themselves at night.

Effects on menopause

In one study  by Williams et al 2011, pumpkin seed oil was found to help relieve some of the symptoms of menopause. This included a decrease in hot flashes, joint pain, and headaches. The women taking pumpkin seed oil also had an increase in their HDL levels, which is the “good” cholesterol.
