  • Nootropic – enhances cognitive functions including heightening intelligence and enhancing memory
  • Anxiolyhic – reduces stress and anxiety – calming effect
  • Relaxes smooth vascular muscle aiding blood flow
  • Analgesic – helps to relieve pain to the extent it is used as a local anesthetic
  • Diuretic – promotes excretion of water (urination) which decreases blood volume thereby lowering high blood pressure, also used for fast but typically temporary weight loss
  • Anti-inflammatory 
  • Anti-anxiety and depression with indication that high doses may be adaptogenic
  • Anti-convulsant
  • Anti-diabetic activity by inhibiting glucose intake from the diet
  • Anti-cancer and anti-tumor abilities resulting from cyclotides that cause cell death by disrupting cell membrane integrity
  • Anti-pyretic –reduces fever by dilating the blood vessels just beneath the skin which increases blood flow near the surface of the skin where it can be more easily cooled by the air

Kaffir Lime Leaves

 Kaffir lime , Citrus hystrix, add a distinct slightly sweet citrus flavor described as “rejuvenating,”  “uplifting” for which there is no substitute.  The flavor is due to high concentrations of alkaloids, citronellal, limonene and nerol. The aroma of kaffir lime leaves is primarily due to citronellal plus linalool.

  • Used aromatically to sooth and calm the body and mind to reduce stress

In-Depth Look

Kaffir lime leaves aside from their culinary benefits have a high content of beneficial organic compounds that exert a positive effect on the human body. Normally the kaffir lime leaves would be dried in an oven and then mechanically round to a fine powder.  The exposure to heat reduces the positive benefits by transmuting essential oils, denaturing the enzymes, and reducing the value of thermo-sensitive vitamins and other vital ingredients.  Thai Freeze Dry uses a proprietary process, ‘Cellular Fraction-Line Technology” to sustain the cellular and molecular structure as close as possible to how the plant grows in nature.

Galangal

Galanga, Alpina galangal, is well known throughout Thailand as “Kha “  for its distinctively sharp sweet taste and fragrance. Like Turmeric, Galanga is a member of the ginger family and this very popular culinary herb is used in soups and curries.

Health Benefits

  • Relieve motion sickness
  • Relieve stomach pain,
  • Vomiting, hiccups and diarrhea
  • Promote male fertility
  • Relaxes the smooth muscular cells of the blood vessels allowing the blood vessels to expand.

 

Interesting Facts

  • Galanga is used in many Asian formulations for upper respiratory infections including colds and sore throat.
  • Galanga is known to inhibit nitric oxide production.
  •  Nitric Oxide relaxe the smooth muscular cells of the blood vessels allowing the blood vessels to expand.
  • Animal studies showed increased sperm count and mobility and a study in Denmark where galangal was combined with pomegranate fruit extract found a 3X increase mobile sperm in healthy human males. 
  • There is a growing body of scientific research supporting the use of galangal to help fight a broad range of human cancers and tumors.  One study indicates that galangal significantly destroyed gastric cancer cells.
  • Using Thai Freeze Dry’s “Cellular Fraction-Line Technology the Galanga is not exposed to heat during any part of the process.  This is the “Thai Freeze Dry difference” in line with our mission to revive your relationship to nature’s complete foods. Thai Freeze Dry’s galanga powder is delivered as a complete whole food as nature designed it.

In-Dept Look

Galanga has a long history of use in various medicinal traditions.  In African-American folk medicine galanga is referred to as “chewing root” said to settle the stomach and aid digestion.  Traditional Chinese medicine prescribes galanga to relieve stomach pain, vomiting, hiccups and diarrhea.  Galanga is often to relieve motion sickness as well as morning sickness.

Ayurveda classifies galanga as a “Vata Shamana” herb used to address inflammation.  Modern science has validated this anti-inflammatory properties.  Ethyl-p-methoxycinnamate isolated from galanga inhibits inflammation by suppressing interleukin-1, tumor necrosis factor-α, and inhibiting the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) by blocking endothelial functions.

Turmeric

Turmeric, (Curcuma longa), contains hundreds of chemical species including a variety of curcuminoids working together in synergy. Much if not all of the turmeric powder in the market will have been processed by boiling or steaming as a first step after washing.  In Thai Freeze Dry’s ”Cellular Fraction-Line Technology   ” (CFL) the turmeric is not exposed to heat during any part of the process.  This is the “Thai Freeze Dry” difference.  

Health Benefits

  • Powerful anti-oxidant
  • Promotes brain growth
  • Anti-Inflamatory
  • Boost enzyme production
  • Anti-depressant
  • Improve cognitive function 

Interesting Facts

  • Neurons form new connections and also grow and multiply in the brain.  A growth hormone,  essential to this process is BDNF ( Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor). This hormone decreases as you grow older.  Decreased levels of BDNF are linked to brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression (see below) and age-related decreases in cognitive functions.  Curcumin has been shown to increase levels of BDNF. 
  • Turmeric is a highly effective anti- inflammatory as powerful as anti-inflammatory drugs that have a long list of negative side effects.  Curcumin acts on the molecular level to block NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on the gene expression for inflammation. This effectively interrupts the inflammation cycle. 
  • Excessive free radicals that attack our healthy cells are kept in check by antioxidants.  Curcumin has a double antioxidant effect.  It contains strong antioxidant compounds that neutralize free radicals and, at the same time, boosts the body’s natural ability to synthesize the enzymes that act as our endogenous antioxidants.  It acts along both of these metabolic pathways at the same time.
  • Curcumin  shows promise as an anti-depressant.  Depression is linked to reduced levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BNDF – a brain growth hormone) and a shrinking hippocampus (the area of the brain associated with learning and memory).

In-Depth Look

Cucumin crosses the blood-brain barrier to exercise a direct influence in reducing oxidative damage and inflammation in the brain. Turmeric displays powerful anti-inflammatory effects.  Given the fact that inflammation is linked to a wide spectrum of health issues including heart disease, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, and degenerative nervous system disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and contributes significantly to the aging process, turmeric makes a great daily supplement to your diet.

Stevia

 

SteviaStevia rebaudiana, plays an important role in Thai Freeze Dry’s herbal blends. Thai are not all delicious.  Some are bitter, some our sour,  astringent etc. 

The CFL Process allows us to make a stevia powder in its most natural form. Other processes use chemical procedures that turn the powder white and leaves a chemical/ metalic taste.

Health Benefits

  • Anti-bacterial
  • Control sugar intake
  • Contain magnesium, potassium, and vitamin B3
  • Strengthen sodium eliminateion
  • Reduction in blood glucose levels
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Helps 
  • Hygienic oral care

Interesting Facts

  • Stevia is not only “harmless” but is healthy.  Most often you are getting a refined extract (liquid or powder) that has isolated stevia’s sweet compounds. Thai Freeze Dry’s CFL promises the whole plant as nature intended.
  • Stevia is an effective sweetener for people on sugar and carbohydrate- controlled diets such as diabetics and people concerned with weight management and anyone/everyone interested in overall good health. 
  • Lab studies confirm reductions in blood glucose levels attributed to chlorgenic acid which reduces enzymatic conversion of glycogen to glucose as well as decreasing absorption of glucose in the gut.

In-Depth Look

The sprouted black rice provides a pleasant tasting (malt) flavor but with the addition of our herbs, taste tests indicate that a slightly sweeter taste is preferred.  Stevia provides natural sweetness.  It is a healthy herbal alternative.  It contains no sugar but is sweeter than sugar with no calories, no toxicity and none of the negative health effects of sugar.
