Carnosic Acid – This protects the brain from damage and is a preventive for Alzheimer’s
Disease and dementia, and serves to slow the mental aging process. It is also an
antioxidant that will protect the other organs and tissues of the body.

Camphor – This is an aromatic chemical that stimulates blood circulation, fortifies blood
vessels, and works as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. Thus it prevents disease
and helps to cleanse the body of pollutants such as cigarette smoke and radiation.
