Superior Rhododendron Caucasicum (S.R.C.™), common name: Georgian Snow Rose, is an elegant evergreen shrub inhabiting the mountainous regions of the Caucasian Mountains of Russiaat elevations of 10,000 to 13,000 feet. It has a history of regional usage spanning over 400 years. S.R.C.™ contains a compound that is unique for "fat-control" and antioxidant properties. However, the benefits of this wondrous plant reach far beyond its effective natural weight management in that it is also being used to treat chronic illnesses such as rheumatism, arthritis, high blood pressure and gout. Other S.R.C.™ physiological benefits include stimulation of body heat and an increase of diaphoresis; which is the secretion then elimination of toxins and waste from your body.

Even today Superior Rhododendron Caucasicum remains a very popular traditional drink in theRepublic of Georgia and is revered as one of the secrets to Georgian longevity.

  • Anyone suffering from Arthritis or Gout

Does S.R.C.™ have side effects?

No. However, supplementation of any kind should only be commenced after consulting your Health care provider, use only as directed.

Why is S.R.C.™ (Rhododendron caucasicum) unique?

Superior Rhododendron Caucasicum (S.R.C.™) is very unique in that there are at least 800 Azaleas/Rhododendron species worldwide, most are toxic and should not be consumed by humans, but clinical trials of S.R.C.™ have shown it to be safe and effective for human consumption. It is the only known variety to contain its unique phyto-chemical composition. Some of the highly activephenolics in S.R.C.™ are flavon-glycosides, cafferic acid, anthocyanins, chlorogenic and gallicacids. To assure the necessary quality of efficacy, S.R.C.™ is only harvested in the spring when thepolyphenol compounds are at their highest potential. After spring these very important polyphenolsdecline rapidly.

The process by which S.R.C.™ is produced is key to its success in the body. S.R.C.™ is only produced by high-pressure solvent-free water extraction. Unfortunately, many antioxidant compounds used in nutritional supplements today are extracted using organic solvents, which can aggravate the condition that the antioxidants are trying to alleviate. That is why S.R.C.™ is only processed through high-pressure water-based filtration.

How does S.R.C.™(Rhododendron caucasicum) promote fat reduction?

Healthy bodies need certain levels of fat in order to perform properly. These fats, called essential fatty acids (omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids), when in balance, provide necessary nutrients for the brain, hair, nails, skin, muscles, nerves and a long list of other essential metabolic benefits. Therefore it is not wise to cut out all fat from your diet, but balance fat by blocking excess amounts. S.R.C.™ acts in the same way as pharmaceuticals drugs (fat-blockers/lipase-inhibitors) in that it safely and selectively blocks lipase activity. Unlike drugs, the clinical trials of S.R.C.™ have shown that it does not reduce lipase function to a level that can threaten normal metabolic balance yet safely block enough fat to make a difference without the risk of compromising your health. This occurs because the phenolics of S.R.C.™ specifically inhibit the activity of the lipase-key enzyme in fat metabolism, but does not inhibit the effects of the other enzymes necessary in digestion such astrypsin, pepsin and amylase. The studies show that using S.R.C.™, three times a day, before meals produced a natural 15-20% decrease in fat assimilation. These tests clearly indicated that S.R.C.™ is a safe and promising natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs; which may cause harmful side-effects.

History & Science of R.C.

History and Sciences of Rhododendron caucasicum

Since the beginning of the 20th century until now, Rhododendron caucasicum has been the subject of many phytochemical and clinical studies that highlight its exclusive biochemical composition and various medicinal properties. Primarily unknown to Westerners due to political and scientific isolation of the Georgian Republic, in 1950 Professor Durmishidze, the father of Georgian flavonoids research, reported that Rhododendron caucasicum extract had strong P-Vitamin activity. Soon identified were its anthocyanidins, flavonoids, phenylpropanoids and proanthocyanidin compounds which have dramatic health benefits for all the organs of the body especially the heart. In regards to weight loss, standardized extracts from the young spring leaves of Rhododendron caucasicum are believed to have high levels of fatblocking properties unique only to this species. In case studies, patients who received this extract reduced their original weight from 5 to 20 pounds improving their body protein/fat ratio over a few months period. Additional clinical trials performed by Professor Rossiyski on 170 volunteers suffering with severe attacks of gout were found to receive relief in just a few hours after consuming 2 or 3 doses of 150 mg of Rhododendron caucasicum. Recent research discovered that the phytochemicals extracted from young spring leaves contain high amounts of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) compared to leaves that are harvested in the fall and that diets rich in these phytochemicals (OPC’s) can significantly reduce cholesterol absorption.Yet other studies have produced results identifying Rhododendron caucasicum’s high activity against Hyaluronidase which may result in a major anti-arthritic breakthrough. At the minimum this specific form of Rhododendron caucasicum called S.R.C.™ is a significantly important find in today’s health conscious world.

I just wanted to let you know that the S.R.C. is by far the best adaptogen I have ever tried. My experience goes a little something like this: It was a Friday I believe and I was on the way to my significant others house. I had taken the S.R.C. just about twenty minutes earlier and all of a sudden while in route I experienced this primal energy. It was like nothing I have ever felt. I was literally compelled to get out the car and start running. Weeks into taking the S.R.C, other improvements arose such as a lighter mood, even more energy than the ride in the car (LOL), better breathing, more intense workouts, and skin moisture improvement! This adaptogen is touted as a weight loss cure and/or aid and indeed it is but it does so much more. Im living proof as are the hundreds that consume this herb daily in the Georgian Republic. According to Dr. Zakir Ramazanov Rhododendron Caucasicum alleviates and helps the following: weight management, heart disease and artherosclerosis, restores heart damage and cardiovascular function, mitral valve prolapse, arthritis, diabetes, gout, bacterial and viral infections...... Dr. Zakir Ramazanov never said this but from my own personal experience and extensive background in Biochemistry and Natural Medicine I would have to say it improves skin moisture due to its antagonistic effects on hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase breaks down the all important muchopolysacharride Hyaluronic Acid which is responsible for retaining moisture in the ground tissues of the body such as the cartilige and collegen. If you abolish or greatly reduce the function of hyaluronidase then it means that the joints and skin are able to retain or restore lost moisture levels. At any rate the S.R.C. is a must have, I beseech you on behalf of great health to try some....
