- Baicalin has a unique ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, and thus can facilitate targeted delivery of neuroprotective effects to the brain.
- Additional effects studied with promising results include increasing blood circulation, reducing the rate of mutation in cells, calming the nervous system, protecting chondrocytes, and memory-enhancing.
What has studies shown?
Studies have shown BioPure Baikalin Powder strengthening our body’s natural defenses against harmful invaders by interfering with the interactions of cell envelope proteins. In this way, it disrupts the binding and reception process that retroviruses use to gain access to a host’s cells. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD, and Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD, believe retroviruses may be the driving force behind symptoms of many chronic illnesses. BioPure’s new Baikalin Powder, derived from the roots of Scutellaria baicalensis, was formulated with this approach and these various health benefits in mind.
