    Contains synergistic ingredients that help support normal, healthy liver detoxification and provide antioxidant protection.* 600 mg of NAC Includes cofactors selenium and molybdenum. Vegetarian capsule Gluten free N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a source of the amino acid cysteine. The body is capable of making limited quantities of cysteine, which is used to manufacture the body’s most powerful naturally made antioxidant, glutathione. Glutathione is an important component of antioxidant enzymes, as well as an essential component of the liver’s detoxification processes. NAC has been shown to be more efficient at supporting higher glutathione levels than supplemental glutathione itself. NAC helps protect the liver from the potentially harmful effects of free radicals which are generated during metabolism, found in our environment, and those derived from the metabolism of alcohol and certain medications. Selenium and molybdenum are included as essential cofactors.*   Benefits: N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) serves as a source of cysteine required for the liver’s synthesis of glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which helps neutralize free radicals produced during the first phase of liver detoxification. Glutathione is also needed during phase 2 liver detoxification. In this phase various chemical intermediates produced in phase 1 are chemically bound to specific amino acids and then prepared for excretion via the kidneys (urine). If there is inadequate glutathione toxic chemicals can accumulate causing liver damage and damage to healthy cells.* NAC has been shown in studies to help protect the liver from the damaging effects of drug and or alcohol toxicity.* Selenium is an important cofactor for the production of glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme made in the liver that helps neutralize toxic free radicals.* Molybdenum is an essential cofactor for the phase 2 detoxification process known as sulfation. This process, through the use of sulfur containing compound such as glutathione, taurine and SAMe, helps to detoxify sulfur containing chemicals found in food additives, drugs and the environment, all of which can be potentially harmful to the body.* Label

    Background: Since ancient times it has been said that drinking green tea helps promote relaxation and an overall feeling of well-being.  A pioneer in the science of green tea, Taiyo found this relaxation effect to be due to the presence of the amino acid L-theanine. Suntheanine® is the trade name for Taiyo's patented, pure form of L-theanine.  Suntheanine® has been used in more clinical studies than any other L-theanine.  Studies show Suntheanine® to have significant affects on anxiety and other stress-related mechanisms in the body, as well as the ability to promote relaxation and sleep.*   Features:   Each serving provides 100 mg of Suntheanine®, the leading brand of L-theanine in the world. Most well studied and scientifically documented L-theanine in the industry. Suntheanine® has been the subject of numerous scientific studies, all of which demonstrate significant benefits. Manufactured by Taiyo International, world leaders in the research and manufacturing of L-theanine.   Benefits:   Suntheanine® helps reduce the acute psychological and physiological responses elicited by specific types of mental stress.* Suntheanine® helps support significant brain alpha-wave activity.  This increase supports a role for Suntheanine in achieving a relaxed, but alert mental state through a direct influence on the central nervous system.*  Suntheanine® has been shown to help support a healthy blood pressure, possibly by promoting brain alpha-wave activity (reflective of a relaxed state), as well as helping to counteract the stimulatory effects of caffeine. Suntheanine® has been shown to help provide support for PMS-related health issues.*  Ingredients SunTheanine® It has been estimated that nearly 65 percent of the adult population experiences some form of stress, and these numbers are continually rising. Since ancient times, it has been said that drinking green tea induces relaxation. A pioneer in the science of green tea, Taiyo found this relaxation effect to be due to the presence of the amino acid L-theanine, found almost exclusively in tea. Clinical research suggests that 50 mg – 200 mg Suntheanine stimulates activity in the brain known as alpha waves, which are associated with a relaxed but alert mental state. Suntheanine is the trade name for Taiyo’s patented pure form of L-theanine. Suntheanine is not an extract of green tea but rather is produced via a patented process that mimics the natural process in green tea leaves, resulting in a 100% pure L-isomer-theanine. HOW DOES IT WORK? Human clinical trials have shown Suntheanine to promote an alert state of relaxation without drowsiness, as indicated by an increase in Alpha brain waves, and a decrease in Beta brain waves.* The brain emits weak electrical impulses that can be measured on the surface of the head, which are classified based on their frequency:

    L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine, commonly known as Branched Chain Amino Acids or BCAAs, cannot be produced by the body and must be consumed through diet or dietary supplements. They are essential to building and maintaining muscle tissue and have long been used by athletes and other active individuals to activate protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training or physical activity.Vegetarian BCAA 1,000 mg- Branch Chain Amino Acids with Glutamine and B VitaminsBCAA's and Glutamine are essential to building and maintaining muscle tissue.BCAA's activate protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training or physical activity.Glutamine is the most abundant building block of protein in the body. The body can make enough glutamine for its regular needs. But during times of extreme stress (i.e. after intense exercise or an injury), your body may need more glutamine than it can make. Glutamine plays a major role in helping your muscles repair themselves after stressPubChem notes that one of the main roles L-glutamine plays in muscle recovery is moving nitrogen atoms from wherever they are to where they are needed. To build muscle, you need to maintain a positive nitrogen balance. After a heavy workout, rushing nitrogen to your damaged muscles stimulates tissue repair. If glutamine is lacking in the body, the damaged tissue may stay damaged because it doesn't have the materials to rebuild. Label

    L-Glutamine 100% Pure Free Form Powder - No Other Ingredients

    3 in stock

    L-Glutamine is a “conditionally” essential amino acid. The average healthy person can usually make enough glutamine to meet biological needs. A shortage of glutamine may arise when there is disease, injury or other physiological abnormality that increases the body’s requirement for glutamine. Glutamine is essential for the metabolism, structure, and function of the gastrointestinal tract and its associated immune component.* Glutamine serves as a major source of fuel for the cells that line the intestinal tract, helping to maintain their normal, healthy function.* Immune cells require glutamine to help function properly. During times of physical stress and disease i.e. lifting weights, cancer, severe burns, an individual’s requirement for glutamine increases dramatically. Providing the body with glutamine as L-glutamine helps maintain lean muscle mass, helps the healing process and supports the body during all types of physical stress.* Features: Our L-glutamine is the highest quality, pharmaceutical grade, free form L-glutamine available. It comes in a convenient powdered form which makes it easy to take the higher doses required by many individuals. Free form (predigested and ready to be used by the body) L-glutamine 5,000mg per scoop   Benefits: L-glutamine is known as a conditionally-essential amino acid, meaning that the body is capable of making it, but in certain conditions and disease states, the body can’t make enough to meet biological requirements. L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the blood and serves as a major source of fuel for the cells that line the intestinal tract.* L-glutamine is essential for a normal, healthy immune system (of which about 1/3 resides in the GI tract) and during infection glutamine requirements increase.* During trauma, glutamine requirements increase several-fold. If requirements are not met, the body will begin to breakdown muscle tissue (high glutamine content) as a source of glutamine. This is one of the reasons why severe trauma and or illness result in a significant loss of mean muscle mass and bodyweight. Higher amounts of L-glutamine must be provided during trauma or illness in supplemental form, as it is difficult to get the necessary amounts through diet alone.   SUGGESTED USE:  As a Dietary Supplement, adults take one scoop in eight ounces of water, one (1) to three (3) times daily, or as directed by a health care professional.   Ingredients

    Acetyl-l-carnitine is a natural compound found in the brain. Unfortunately, as we age levels begin to decline. Acetyl-l-carnitine helps support energy production in the brain and helps support healthy levels of important brain chemicals such as neurotransmitters needed for memory, focus and learning. Acetyl-l-carnitine has a distinct advantage over L-carnitine when it comes to supporting healthy brain function. Acetyl-l-carnitine is able to pass the very selective blood-brain barrier more efficiently than L-carnitine, and therefore play more of a role in brain health.   Features Sourced from Sigma-Tau Health Sciences, a world leader in the research, development and manufacturing of carnitine products. Provides 500 mg of acetyl-l-carnitine per serving. Essential molecule for supporting healthy brain function.† Easy to swallow vegetarian capsule.   Benefits Acetyl-l-carnitine serves as a source of acetyl groups that contribute to the production of acetyl-CoA. Acetyl-Co-A is essential to the production of energy within the cell.† Acetyl-l-carnitine can also serve as a source of acetyl groups for the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine; a compound involved in virtually all brain functions.† Acetyl-l-carnitine has also been shown to protect nerve cells against free radical damage, support cellular glutathione production, promote healthy CoQ10 levels and offer special protection to healthy brain cells.† Acetyl-l-carnitine helps support and protect the mitochondria-the energy powerhouse of the cell. Without healthy mitochondria, all cells, particularly those of the nervous system, would not function properly leading to cell damage and eventual cell death.† Significant research on acetyl-l-carnitine exists, demonstrating its ability to support cellular energy production, provide antioxidant support helping to protect healthy cells and, most importantly, protect mitochondrial function and support overall cellular metabolism.†   LABEL

    5 in stock

    SAM-e is produced in small amounts by the human body, where it is an important physiological factor in the production of many compounds. However, the body does not always produce adequate amounts of SAM-e and supplementation is sometimes required. SAM-e has been the subject of many scientific studies in Europe. Thousands of Europeans have experienced a multitude of benefits from twenty years of its clinical use. SAM-e strongly absorbs moisture from the environment, which can lead to a compromise in its overall quality. Consequently, our SAM-e tablets are carefully enteric-coated for the strongest protection.SAM-e is not considered an essential nutrient due to the fact that the body is able to manufacture it. Certain dietary factors (lack of important vitamins, minerals and other cofactors), disease states and aging, may affect the bodys ability to manufacture optimal amounts of SAM-e. Numerous scientific studies demonstrate the efficacy and safety of supplemental SAM-e. SAM-e or S-adenosyl-methionine is classified as a methyl donor. Methyl donors contribute chemical groups known as methyl groups for chemical reactions involving liver detoxification (removal of toxins from the body), neurotransmitter synthesis (particularly in the brain), and the synthesis of most sulfur containing chemicals and body structures such as the antioxidant glutathione and the cartilage that protects our joints. The beneficial effects of SAM-e supplementation are far-reaching due to its central role in so many important metabolic processes.
