TUSHM.D. is made from only the highest safe, all natural ingredients in a GMPand NSF Certified laboratory in the United States. The TUSHM.D. ingredients are not habit-forming and are safe all natural supplements. TUSHM.D. uses a proprietary blend of many ingredients, primarily Bromelain, Psyllium and Witch Hazel.
Bromelain, is made from the stem or husk of the pineapple, where the highest concentration of the bromelain is found. Bromelain is actually used widely in food products and as an aid to digestion and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. The bromelain in TUSHM.D. is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) This is the statutory safety standard that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires all ingredients added to conventional food as well as of therapeutics in the category of medical foods. The standard for an ingredient to achieve GRAS status requires technical demonstration of non-toxicity and safety, general recognition of safety through widespread usage and agreement of that safety by experts in the field.
Studies have shown that bromelain can also be useful in the reduction of platelet clumping and blood clots in the bloodstream. Because of this property if you are taking blood thinners or anticoagulants TUSHM.D. is NOT recommended. Do not take TUSHM.D. if you are allergic to pineapples. You can read for yourself about the properties of bromelain in the resources listed below.
Witch-hazel helps to shrink and contract blood vessels back to normal size. By taking witch hazel internally, the herb passes gently through the bowels and acts from the inside where it is needed most. Psyllium is a commonly used natural dietary fiber used for constipation. Although its main use has been as a laxative, it is more appropriately termed a true dietary fiber and as such can help reduce the symptoms of both constipation and mild diarrhea. The laxative properties of Psyllium are attributed to the fiber absorbing water and subsequently softening the stool. At the same time, this added bulk causes the stool to be better formed, which can reduce symptoms of diarrhea. Psylluim is a gentle all natural way to promote and stimulate healthy bowel elimination.
We have incorporated it into a unique oral formula which finally offers a new choice to help maintain and improve your ANORECTAL HEALTH. TUSHM.D. may offer you a way to stay healthy and avoid doctor visits and more expensive treatments. We don't mean to say that you won't need to see a doctor but maybe not as often. Don't forget to get regular checkups and if you are over 50 get a colonoscopy. Symptoms of anorectal and colon problems are nonspecific so if you notice abnormal bleeding or bowel changes, see a doctor.
As with most supplements, consult your doctor to see if there are any contraindications to use of supplements along with your regular medicines. We have not observed any problems but if you aren't sure, check with your doctor or pharmacist. These ingredients are widely used and show little history of side effects or allergies. Warning/Caution.. Do not use if you are using blood thinners, or anti coagulants or if you are allergic to pineapples. You may be at higher risk for allergic reaction if allergic to honeybee stings.
