Native American Medicinal Herb
Used traditionally by Native Americans for its medicinal properties, Chaparral (Larrea tridentata) is a hardy desert plant found primarily in Mediterranean climate regions. Chaparral comprises over 20 species which survive the extreme conditions of desert life and can live to be over 10,000 years old.
Ancient Purity Chaparral is wild-crafted and harvested directly from the USA. The chaparral is dried using a unique low-temperature process which helps to maintain the leaves in a pure and unadulterated state. Although there is much information about its serious power in a certain health protocol as a tea, Ancient Purity believes in the ancient tradition of smudging, the incense of this incredible herb has many benefits. In fact due to possible side effects we think it is far safer to simply use the Incense.

Breath in Chaparral's rejuvenating essence
Chaparral, as mentioned above, is commonly known as the creosote bush, is considered by many to be one of the strongest and most effective antioxidants found in nature. The medicinal potential of this herb ranges from antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to immune support and pain relief. The NDGA found in chaparral has been shown to support cardiovascular health. NDGA also has neuro-protective properties.
Much is also written about Chaparral’s antioxidant value. In John Heinerman’s book, Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs, he says “...it seems like a good idea to take one chaparral capsule after consuming a Big Mac and French fries in order to offset some of the damage all of those free radicals you've ingested are capable of doing. And while chaparral may not hold quite the same promises expected of ginseng for longevity, it can certainly help to slow down the ageing process quite a bit from the foods we eat on a daily basis." But again Ancient Purity is recommending you experience Chapparral through breathing in its rejuvenating essence. We also absolutely love the smell and regularly burn it at our place.

The Chaparral Controversy
Chaparral is often on everyone's blacklist. According to the FDA in the USA, chaparral has been linked to serious liver damage. The FDA has recorded two deaths and 10 cases of hepatitis or other liver abnormalities in users. The reality of the situation, though, is that the evidence for chaparral liver toxicity is anecdotal. It is not the result of any double blind studies or of any clinical trials. For example, one of the cases the FDA likes to single out can be found in the Journal of the American Medical Association (273 (6):489). The details of the case concern a 60-year-old woman who developed jaundice and liver failure while taking one to two capsules of chaparral each day with a pinch of garlic in a tea made from nettle and chickweed. The authors of the JAMA article concluded it was the chaparral that caused the liver problems. What is fascinating is that the patient in question was also consuming atenolol, aspirin, was on a nitro patch, and occasional acetaminophen, as well as diltiazem hydrochloride - all drugs with profound hepatoxic potential. Amazingly, none of these other substances was even considered as a possible cause of the liver problems by the authors...or the FDA. What a surprise! Nevertheless (and despite the fact that extensive studies on chaparral in the 1970s and 1980s were unable to find any hepatotoxic properties), in December of 1992, FDA Commissioner David Kessler announced, "The public should not purchase or consume chaparral."
After these allegations of liver toxicity by the FDA, manufacturers voluntarily restricted sales of chaparral for several years until the reports were investigated. Following a lengthy review, a panel of medical experts concluded "no clinical data was found... to indicate chaparral is inherently a hepatic toxin." In late 1994, this report was submitted to the FDA. The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) now recommends that companies that offer products for sale for internal use that contain chaparral (Larrea tridentata) [should] provide labeling that contains the following informational language: Rare reports of serious liver disease have been associated with ingestion of chaparral. Seek advice from a healthcare practitioner before use and, in so doing, inform them if you have had, or may have had, liver disease, frequently use alcoholic beverages, or are using any medications. Discontinue use and see a doctor if vomiting, fever, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, or jaundice (e.g., dark urine, pale stools, yellow discoloration of the eyes) should occur. Again Ancient Purity are simply recommending burning Chaparral and inhaling its Ancient Healing Powers.
