Turmeric Extract Puts Drugs For Knee Osteoarthritis To Shame Sayer Ji, ContributorActivist Post Millions take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) daily for arthritis and related inflammatory conditions, but are completely unaware that far safer, and at least as effective, natural alternative already exist -- and are as easily accessible and inexpensive as the spices found in your kitchen cupboard. Human research on the health benefits of turmeric is sparse, mainly due to the lack of capital available to fund expensive clinical trials.[i] Despite many decades of investigation as a lead drug compound, and the availability of thousands of preclinical studies indicating turmeric's therapeutic value, few yet realize that this common kitchen spice may provide a suitable drug alternative for common health conditions.

The other day the hubster came home from work with a pounding headache. He usually takes Excedrin for headache relief, but apparently that wasn’t cutting it on that particular day.

Hawthorne Tree Hawthorne (Crataegus) is deciduous and a member of the rose family. The common name for hawthorne comes from haw, which is an old English word for "hedge." The tree's name simply means "thorny hedge." After the British General Enclosures Act of 1845 hawthorn was used extensively as hedgerow because of its thorny nature and quick growth, angering peasants who no longer could enter the lands they previously roamed at will. Its Latin name, Crataegus, means "hardness", referring to the quality of the wood. Cultivation
The crataegus plant – better known as the hawthorn – is a large genus of flowering trees and shrubs from the rosaceae family. The hawthorn flower is native to more temperate areas of Europe, Asia and North America, and can easily grow in either full or partial sun, and within a variety of soil types. Interspersed among strong, toothy leaves, the hawthorn flower blossoms from small white balls into delicate white, five-petaled blooms. These blooms surround tiny, pink-headed stamens, and are backed by five star shaped sepals. The stem of these flowers may appear to be vaguely swollen, this is due to the fact that it contains seeds that will, by the fall, develop into appealing red berries.

Contents Pharmacological and Clinical Studies of Salidroside.: The traditional use of R. rosea as a tonic in Siberian and Russian medicine stimulated extensive research leading to identification of R. rosea as an adaptogen a substance that nonspecifically increases the resistance of an organism and does not disturb normal biological parameters.

Ever wondered why one strain of marijuana locks you to your couch, while another strain sends your mind into a million creative directions and you jump up and exercise for two hours? Or maybe you're a grower wanting to harvest at just the right time so you get maximum payoff from your marijuana. Now you can find the answers by looking at cutting-edge marijuana research that opens up incredible potential for hydroponics marijuana growers and tokers. Where is this marijuana research data coming from? Inside Marijuana: Lab-Testing Opens New Territory for Growers and Consumers
Inside Marijuana: Cannabinoid Lab-Testing for Growers and Tokers In our previous article, we explained how marijuana laboratory testing is providing us new information that helps growers and tokers get way more from marijuana than they ever imagined. At the heart of these discoveries are marijuana testing laboratories using high-tech equipment that analyzes marijuana’s quality, purity, potency and cannabinoid effects. But as a recent California NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) study points out, some marijuana testing labs aren’t producing accurate results. Fortunately, Big Buds has an inside track to one of the most-respected marijuana labs, California’s BudGenius laboratory.
