Dear Blair and Rhonda

Since the launch of Fructus Benedictus, this clinic has been increasingly recommending the herbal elixir as a tonic medicament.

The formula is proving to be an outstanding stimulant and neuro-protective agent. Benefits can be attributed to its role in promoting the integrity of –

Fructus Benedictus

NUTRIENT TRANSPORT ACROSS CELL MEMBRANES
specifically
THE SODIUM-CALCIUM EXCHANGERS FROM CARDIAC MUSCLE

In our experience, these proteins [NCX1 and NCX2] play a vital role in:
PREVENTING CORONARY ARTERIES FROM BECOMING TORTUOUS DUE TO MUSCLE SHRINKAGE
[i.e. CARDIAC ATROPHY]
and
INHIBITING LIPOFUSCIN DEPOSITION IN CARDIAC THIN MUSCLE FIBRES

Essentially, what this means is that Fructus Benedictus promotes the integrity of cardiac muscle as a syncytium.

Cardiac muscle fibres are made up of many muscle cells connected in series to each other. Therefore, from a functional point of view, heart muscle cells are so tightly bound that, when one cell becomes excited, the action potential spreads to all cells – like sparks throughout a latticework.

Our heart is composed of two separate syncytiums:
the Atrial syncytium and the Ventricular syncytium

This division of the heart’s muscle mass allows the atria [upper, blood-receiving chambers] to contract a short time ahead of the ventricles [lower, blood-despatching chambers.]

From our own research, supported by client feedback, I am of the opinion that Fructus is possibly one of the most exciting nutritional remedies for improving the effectiveness of heart pumping capacity.

In the Western world, where heart disease remains the No. I cause of death, the safe efficacy of Fructus Benedictus has a lot to offer.

Thank you for having invited me to participate in the formulation of this outstanding product.

Kind regards,
Karin Cutter Ph.D.
