Health Notes

Oregon Grape

Oregon Grape
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Some bitters widely used in traditional medicine in North America include yarrow, yellow dock, goldenseal, Oregon grape, and vervain. Oregon grape's European cousin barberry has also traditionally been used as a bitter. Animal studies indicate that yarrow, barberry, and Oregon grape, in addition to stimulating digestion like other bitters, may relieve spasms in the intestinal tract.3

Diarrhea
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Due to of its supposed antimicrobial activity, goldenseal has a long history of use for infectious diarrhea. Its major alkaloid, berberine (also found in barberry and Oregon grape), has been shown to improve infectious diarrhea in some double-blind trials.1 Negative studies have generally focused on people with cholera, while positive studies investigated viral diarrhea or diarrhea due to strains of E. coli. These studies generally used 400-500 mg berberine one to three times per day. Because of the low amount of berberine in most goldenseal products, it is unclear how effective the whole root or root extracts would be in treating diarrhea.

Infection
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Herbs that support a person's immune system in the fight against microbes and directly attack microbes include the following: barberry, echinacea, elderberry, goldenseal, licorice, Oregon grape, osha, and wild indigo.

Parasites
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Berberine is derived from several plants, including barberry, Oregon grape, goldenseal, and goldthread (Coptis chinensis). Preliminary trials have shown that berberine can be used successfully to treat giardia infections.1, 2 In addition, test tube studies show that berberine kills amoebae, although it is not known whether this effect occurs in humans.3 The amount required is approximately 200 mg three times per day for an adult-a level high enough to potentially cause side effects. Therefore, berberine should not be used without consulting a healthcare provider.

Psoriasis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

An ointment containing Oregon grape (10% concentration) has been shown in a clinical trial to be mildly effective against moderate psoriasis but not more severe cases.1 Whole Oregon grape extracts were shown in one laboratory study to reduce inflammation often associated with psoriasis.2 In this study, isolated alkaloids from Oregon grape did not have this effect. This suggests that there are other active ingredients besides alkaloids in Oregon grape. Barberry, which is very similar to Oregon grape, is believed to have similar effects. An ointment, 10% of which contains Oregon grape or barberry extract, can be applied topically three times per day.

Urinary Tract Infection
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Goldenseal is reputed to help treat many types of infections. It contains berberine, an alkaloid that may prevent UTIs by inhibiting bacteria from adhering to the wall of the urinary bladder.1 Goldenseal and other plants containing berberine (such as Oregon grape) may help in the treatment of UTIs. These herbs have not, however, been studied for the treatment of UTIs in humans.

Chronic Candidiasis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Berberine is an alkaloid found in various plants, including goldenseal, barberry, Oregon grape, and goldthread. Berberine exhibits a broad spectrum of antibiotic and antifungal activity in test tube, animal, and human studies.1, 2 Berberine has shown effective antidiarrheal activity in a number of diarrheal diseases,3, 4, 5 and it may offer the same type of relief for the diarrhea seen in patients with chronic candidiasis. Doctors familiar with the use of berberine-containing herbs sometimes recommend taking 2 to 4 grams of the dried root (or bark) or 250 to 500 mg of an herbal extract three times a day. While isolated berberine has been studied, none of these herbs has been studied in humans with chronic candidiasis.

Conjunctivitis and Blepharitis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Parts Used & Where Grown

Oregon grape is an evergreen shrub which grows throughout the American northwest. It is somewhat misnamed, as the fruit are not actually grapes. It is, however, grown in Oregon (it is the official state flower). Oregon grape is a close relative of barberry(Berberis vulgaris), and shares many common uses and constituents. The root is used medicinally.

        Great if you need more than "5 hours" of energy. Gives me a better/longer buzz than those gross convenience-store sugar bombs. I have found it also works great as a pre-workout. Don't drink it too late in the day (for me that's after 7pm)or sleeplessness is a guarantee.

          Comments about ABB Performance Speed Stack® - Grape:

          This is a tasty boost of energy for a quick wake-up to get a great start for a morning workout. You can also sip on one throughout your workout for constant energy if you didn't get a good night's sleep. It's not a head crawling, shaky feeling. Just a quick kick of energy. I usually do not drink them everyday, just on gym days. Only five calories is just a boost in and of itself also.

            I have used allot of different stuff and so far I like how this stuff makes me feel. I get up in the morning pop my Mega Men sport multi then eat a banana and a swallow of protein along with a creatine chewable (GNC brand) then grab me Speed Stack and start drinking it on the way to the Gym about 20 min before working out, sometimes I drink the whole thing before and sometimes I sip a little during my routine. I usually walk on the treadmill for a few minutes to get the blood going by that time it starts to kick in and I'm ready to rock, I'm unlike most people I like feeling jittery and pumped it pushes me harder. And this product will give you a jittery pump if your not used to working out with this kind of product. If your sensitive or have a week stomach I would strongly suggest eating before hand.
