functions. Eases joint pain and is known as “an Elixir of Youth.” Baltic Amber is an analgesic and has anti-fever functions. It helps
ease joint pain and is known as “an Elixir of Youth.” Many Europeans use Baltic Amber tinctures as part of their health maintenance
routine and have a centuries-long history of using natural medical cures (alternative medicine). The use of tinctures has a long history
and goes back to the medieval days when amber workers did not die of the Black Plague. Natural Baltic Amber has properties unlike
any other amber in the world. It's use has been passed down from generation to generation.
- WHAT IS BALTIC AMBER? Baltic Amber existed over 45 million years ago and is an organic substance. It is a “fossil resin” produced
by pine trees which grew in Europe, mined from the southern regions of Scandinavia and nearby regions of the bed of the Baltic Sea.
It began to form when the climate became warmer and trees started to exude large amounts of resin. It is also the only fossil resin
that contains 3-8% succinic acid, a powerful therapeutic substance with many applications for healing. Baltic amber contains DNA
material (inclusions of tiny particles of small plants and insects of that period). Thus Baltic Amber has the ability to facilitate natural
healing and provide other therapeutic treatments to support the body’s immune system.
- WHAT IS SUCCINIC ACID? The active ingredient in Baltic Amber is succinic acid, which was analyzed by the pioneer of modern
bacteriology and Nobel-prize winner Robert Koch (1886). He confirmed its positive influences and discovered that there is no risk of
the accumulation of surplus amounts of succinic acid in the human organism. Recent scientific research has also proven that succinic
acid has a very positive influence on the human organism, it strengthens the body and improves immunity, the course of energy-related
processes and the balance of acids. The natural energy of amber is able to stimulate the body's renewal.

(found in red grape this antioxidant compound supports heart health, provides anti-aging benefits and supports a healthy inflammatory
response. Resveratrol kills cancer cells naturally by inducing apoptosis (also called programmed cell death) while leaving healthy cells
unharmed. It does this by converting lipids (or fats) in tumor cells into molecules called ceramists. For example, researchers found that
Resveratrol causes breast cancer cells to die off in this manner. This info is found in Journal Medicinal Chemistry 48: 6783-86, 2005.
Albert Sun, a professor of pharmacology at Missouri University, discovered that Resveratrol can absorb free radicals during a stroke
and stop them from doing any further damage to the brain or individual cells. The researchers found a remarkable difference
between brain cells that had been treated with Resveratrol and those that had not. Researchers found the compound was helpful
if taken both before and after a stroke. More information can be found at: University Of Missouri-Columbia (2003, November 27).
