What is Larrea tridentata or Shegoi?
Often referred to as "creosote bush" "Larrea" or "Shegoi" inhabits the deserts and canyons of southwestern United States and Mexico.
It is abundant and widespread at elevations under 3000 ft. Often incorrectly referred to as "chaparral" which refers to a grouping of dense thicket and shrubbery in the desert, not just one plant as with Larrea tridentata.
This remarkable plant has a long history of use by Native Americans and European settlers in the southwestern deserts of the United States.
Known as one of the oldest-living plants, some of these plants are dated to almost 12,000 years ago. It has been verified that it is indeed among the oldest living plants in the world.
Just think; Some Larrea plants that are currently living, actually started growing before the Pyramids and the Great Wall of China existed. Calling Death Valley and other hot, dry deserts in the Southwest U.S. home, Larrea tridentata or Shegoi as it is know by the Native Americans indeed knows something that we need to know abot survival...and now a breakthrough in modern science has resulted in some unique new ways we can benefit from this amazing plant.
How does Larrea tridentata or "Shegoi" work?
Containing 18 identified flavone and flavonol aglycones, quercitin bioflavonoids, larreic acid, and two guaiuretic acid lignins, one of which is called NDGA (Nordihydroguaiaretic acid). NDGA has been the subject of numerous studies over several decades. It played a very important role as a food additive for its powerful antioxidant powers and was used to keep processed meat from becoming rancid. A role, now played by synthetic antioxidants such as BHT and BHA.
Virastatin, the extract from Larrea-tridentata, works by inhibiting aerobic combustion in the mitochondria of cells. This slows down cellular processes, including replication of viruses and growth of bacteria. It is thought that this perpetual slow motion is why the plant lives for as long as it does. The resins excreted by the plant, also inhibit the growth of other species of plants in its immediate vicinity effectively competing for water and food resources in harsh desert climates. The patented processing methods used to produce Virastatin are specifically designed to eliminate the purported hepatotoxic compounds (liver toxins) identified with inferior products.
It is important to note that Virastatin, the extract from Larrea tridenta is the ONLY Patented, Natural Product in the Herpes anti - viral Category!

How safe is Larrea tridentata
commonly known as "Shegoi"
Make sure, when purchasing larrea products that they contain Virastatin. This is your families guarantee of quality and purity protecting them from hepatoxic effects shown with inferior products.
We note that Larrea tridentata fell out of favour with the major herbal trade association and governement regulatory agencies in the early 1900's because of reported hepatotoxic compounds or "liver cotoxins" identified with inferrior Larrea products or "crude extracts."
The facts are clear. Shegoi's Patented "Larrea tridentata" Products use the highest quality extraction process known. Quality is assured only when confirming the patented product "Virastatin."
Using sub quality Larrea products can lead to liver complications.
Who should not take Larrea tridentata?
Pregnant and lactating women should not take oral larrea products nor is it recommended for children under the age of 12, as there has not been enough research and clinical trials in this area. As well, people who are taking over the counter medication on a regular basis should consult with their physician prior to supplementing with Larrea as is recommended with most dietary supplements.
Seek advise from your family practitioner prior to supplementing with Larrea based products if you have had any liver complications.
Sensitivity to High Quality Larrea tridentata extracts are very rare. However, should you experience any negative effects including, nausea dark urine, abdominal pain jaundice or yellow discoloration of the skin or eyes discontinue use. If negative affects continue for more than 24 hours consult your health practitioner.
Topical products can also be patch tested on a small area of skin. If after 24 hours no swelling or redness has occurred, it is safe to use high quality larrea based topical solutions more extensively. Again, negative reations are extremely rare but caution is always the best advice.
