Phyto-Cyto™ activates cellular defense mechanisms to promote normal cell function. This unique herbal compound contains natural biologic response modifiers that increase internal defense responders, including cytotoxic T lymphocytes and natural killer cells. These plant extracts help control microtubule stability as well as normalize mitochondrial and cytoplasmic production of ATP (cellular energy). In addition, by promoting processes of elimination, it naturally assists the body in the disposal of cellular debris.*
Pacific Yew tree bark was traditionally used to impart strength and for a number of other uses by Native Americans.

Paw Paw seed and bark include complex compounds known as acitogenins. These compounds, which are derivatives of long-chain fatty acids, are powerful inhibitors of mitochondrial and cytoplasmic production of ATP (energy) in certain cells in the body. Acetogenins have been found to induce apoptosis (cell death) mainly due to necrosis.*
Poke root has been valued for centuries by European and Native American herbalists. It was one of the most common herbs used by the Eclectic herbal practitioners to help support healthy lymphatic system function. It also supports the body’s natural resistance to environmental challenges.*
