The Amazing Herbal Supplement (Almost) Everyone Should Take Every Day!

(The Best Years in Life) What if I told you
that there was a single supplement which could virtually insure that you never
got cancer? And what if I told you that this same supplement would also greatly
reduce your chances of getting the flu, colds, or other infectious illnesses? Or
that this wondrous supplement also helped people reach and maintain healthy
weight levels due to having healthier appetites for good foods, less over-eating
and curbed desire for junk foods? Should I mention that it also results in
thicker, healthier hair and nails? Or that it often increases male libido?
No doubt, you would likely say "No way a single supplement can do all of that!" But it can! And what is that supplement? It is oleander extract! No, not the raw oleander plant which is best known as a toxic ornamental shrub - I am referring to properly prepared oleander EXTRACT which has had the toxins removed while keeping all of the super health compounds which turn this extract into something almost magical. Read on to find out more about why almost everyone should be taking a small dose (1 capsule) of this herbal plant extract every day.
Oleander Extract Benefits
Just one capsule daily of oleander extract:

All, Oleander Helps Prevent Cancer!
At the very top of the list of reasons why almost everyone should take daily oleander is that it helps prevents cancer. In fact, it helps prevent cancer so well that it is almost unheard of for anyone who takes a regular preventive dose of oleander extract and also lives and eats relatively healthy to ever get cancer. Or to ever have cancer return if they have previously had cancer and beaten it. That is a huge benefit and reason for just about everyone to take oleander, since it is now estimated that 1 in every 2 men and 1 in every 3 women are now expected to get cancer sometime in their lifetime. Think of it as a $1 a day insurance policy against a deadly disease that you may otherwise have 33 to 50 percent odds of getting someday. That is the main reason that I personally take a capsule of oleander extract every day, although I also like the other benefits of taking oleander (See below).
By the way, in larger therapeutic doses oleander is also a supreme cancer fighter and has been used successfully by thousands of people around the world to beat cancers, many times after mainstream therapies had failed.
Oleander Extract's Other Benefits
Avoidance of the Flu, Common Cold and Other Infectious Illnesses
People who take oleander report that they almost never get colds or the flu. No doubt that this is due to oleander's tremendous immune boosting and modulating abilities (more on that later). Oleander helps create a robust and healthy immune system that is our natural first line of defense to ward off and beat illness and disease.
It is also believed that oleander helps prevent more serious diseases such as Hepatitis, HIV-AIDS, Multiple-Sclerosis and immune disorders where the body has little or no immune response as well as where the body's immune system attacks healthy cells - and oleander extract has been used effectively to fight against all of those serious conditions and more.
Healthy Appetite and Weight Management
People who take oleander also report that they have healthier appetites and that they are able to obtain and maintain a healthier weight, with less desire or cravings for sweets and junk food and less tendency to over-eat. On the other hand, people who are far too thin and have very poor appetites may find that they are able to put on much-needed weight due to increased, healthier appetites. Having researched and written about oleander for decades now, I had seen and heard the reports of oleander helping with weight control, but I have to admit that I was surprised to find out that in South Africa, where an oleander supplement line was first developed (the very same one we will tell you about in this article), oleander has been so successful for weight management that there is one growing business centered entirely on helping people manage their weight levels with oleander.
Thicker, Healthier Hair and Nails
When you take oleander, you should expect to see healthier, lusher, faster growing hair and healthier, faster growing, stronger nails. Although, like some of the other benefits of oleander extract, medical science has not figured out exactly how or why this happens, it is the rule, rather than the exception. Take it from someone (me) who regularly takes a daily capsule of oleander themselves.
Increased Male Libido
Many men have reported increased libido while taking oleander. That should put a smile on many men's faces. Many women too, although some older women might be less than overjoyed at the idea. I can't help but think of a hilarious "Dear Abby" message I saw where a woman was complaining about Viagra, saying that until it came along she was doing just fine but now that old coot was "back in the saddle again". So be forewarned! But don't let that keep you or your partner from taking daily oleander extract - it can make your lives healthier and longer and very well might save them!
Once again, no one knows exactly why or how this happens, only that it does happen. Perhaps that is due to the difficulty in determing just how the huge number of compounds found in oleander work together, as this next section will explain further.
Oleander Works and Why it Works so Well
As mentioned earlier, oleander extract is a tremendous immune booster and immune modulator - likely the most potent immune stimulator on the planet in fact. In European studies in 1987-88, oleander was found to have SIX TIMES the immune stimulating activity of the most potent patented immune stimulators known to man.
In 1988, a research team was formed at Munich University Pharmacology Institute to isolate the active components contained in the Nerium oleander extract. Several polysaccharides were identified that might be responsible for some part of the immune activity.
In July 1990, the initial results were presented at the symposium of Biology and Chemistry of Active Natural Substances (BACANS), which was held in Bonn, Germany. The presentation was published in Planta Medica. However, no single component of the extract was found to be the sole source of its benefits. Instead, the activity is induced by a complex mixture of components contained in the oleander extract, acting synergistically to modulate the immune system.
Since then, over 500 different compounds have been identified in the oleander plant. And although the cardiac glycoside oleandrin has been identified by many as the main active ingredient against cancer, most believe that it is a synergy between a number of compounds which explains oleanderís effectiveness in preventing and combating disease.
In addition to oleandrin, oleander also contains ursolic acid, beta-sitosterol, quercetin, and linoleic-acid. These are just a few of the immune-stimulating and cancer-fighting compounds which likely contribute to the overall synergistic effects of oleander.
Beta-sitosterol is a food-based plant sterol (phytosterol) which is noted for its ability to protect the prostate and relieve the symptoms of prostate problems. Studies have found that beta-sitosterol also kills both prostate and breast cancer cells without harming normal cells. It also reduces prostate and breast cancer tumor growth, and protects against prostate cancer and breast cancer.
Quercetin is an antioxidant which belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids that give many fruits, flowers, and vegetables their colors. Like other antioxidants, quercitin helps scavenge free radicals in the body which damage cell membranes and tamper with DNA. In addition to protection against heart disease, studies have shown that quercitin inhibits the growth of cancer cells from breast, colon, prostate, ovarian, endometrial, and lung tumors.
One study even suggested that quercetin is more effective than resveratrol in terms of inhibiting tumor growth. Another found that frequent intake of quercetin-rich foods was associated with lower lung cancer risk, particularly among subjects who smoked more than 20 cigarettes daily. A leukemia cell study found that quercetin slows leukemia growth.
Linoleic acid is a member of the omega fatty acids group that performs vital functions in the body and is essential for good health. Many studies in animals and humans have indicated that linoleic acid, particularly conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), is able to suppress the development of breast, prostate, skin, liver, stomach, and colon cancers.
Other cancer fighting and/or immune boosting compounds which have been identified in oleander include: Oleic-acid, Alpha-amyrin, Betulin, Gitoxigenin, Isoquercitrin, Lauric-acid, Oleanolic-acid, Rutin, and Stigmasterol.
Although science and actual real-world experience have determined plenty about why oleander is so capable of preventing and fighting cancer and why it likely helps ward off other illness such as the flu and common cold, no one yet knows exactly how it helps with healthy weight management, lush hair and nail growth or increased male libido, but it does do those things and more.

Where to Buy Oleander Extract
You can order pure oleander capsules from the Utopia Silver Supplement Company:
The Utopia Silver Supplements company is owned by a lifelong friend of mine whom I trust implicitly. Well Like Me is a trusted company I have enjoyed being associated with for the past 15 years. The founder of the company was the late, great cancer pioneer Naturopathic PhD Dr. Marc Swanepoel who was a friend and mentor of mine for almost two decades. Their oleander-based supplements are made by Parceval, a WHO approved pharmaceutical manufacturing company located in Wellington, South Africa. After a double-blind placebo controlled study at a Johannesburg AIDS clinic, the natural supplement Sutherlandia OPC was approved by the government of South Africa and can now be found in pharmacies throughout South Africa.
Alternatively, you can also go
to the Sutherlandia OPC main website where you can order different oleander
based supplement formulations (one which includes the moted herb
Sutherlandia frutescens and another which includes Pao pereira.
Note that orders placed with Sutherlandia Opc.com, aka the Well Like Me Trading, are shipped from South Africa and can take two or more weeks for delivery. Orders for the 100% pure oleander capsules (OPC Plus) from the Utopia Silver Supplement Company are shipped from within the United States and typically arrive within 2 - 3 days. Either way, the supplements are manufactured to the exact same standards.
Important Notes and Cautions:
The reason for saying that almost everyone should take oleander extract daily is because it is likely not be a good idea for people on blood-thinning medications such as Coumadin or Warfarin to take oleander extract. And people who take the cardiac glycoside medications Digoxin or Digitalis should not take oleander unless they do so under the supervision of an integrative medicine medical professional who will supervise and monitor them, because oleander extract contains cardiac glycosides which cross assays with those two medications and the medications are usually prescribed in very precise doses.
Possible Side Effects:
Many people may notice no side effects when taking oleander extract. Others may notice usually temporary side effects such as loose stools, stomach discomfort and mild headaches - which usually soon dissipate once the body becomes acclimated. Diarrhea may be present initially and in some instances may persist. If so, not to worry - there are simple natural solutions for ending it (such as browned apple slices or raspberry leaf tea. For more information, please see the following link:
Sutherlandia OPC Usage and Side Effects.
Also note that taking oleander is not an
excuse for poor dietary and other health practices.
LIke virtually all supplements, oleander extract works best when you work with
it by living and eating healthily. See for example this article fo find out how
to build a healthy foundation for living a longer, healthier and happier life
"Building a Foundation for Better Health and Longevity"
We have many, many such articles on our 3000-plus page website, where the theme is "It's never too early or too late to begin living longer, healthier and happier lives naturally" and where we say that you are never too young or too old to start enjoying the benefits of living and eating more healthily.

A Final Cautionary Note - It's Possible You May Already Have Cancer and Not Know It
Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I would be remiss if I didn't tell you that there is a possibility that you might already have cancer and not know it because the cancer has not yet grown large enough to cause any noticeable changes and/or large enough to be detected by most mainstream tests. It is well worth noting that some slow-growing cancers may take as long as eight years to grow large enough to be detectable by most mainstream tests, and longer still for you to notice any changes caused by the cancer. For that reason, I strongly encourage everyone to read this article:
