    Magnesium garners less attention than many other minerals but may be one of the body’s most important essential nutrients. While many nutrients are vital to a few biological processes, magnesium is essential for hundreds of them. It is critical for foundational processes such as carbohydrate and protein synthesis, the movement of other minerals across cell membranes, cellular energy production, synthesis of RDA and DNA, nerve impulse contraction, muscle contraction, the regulation of blood pressure, maintenance of normal heart rhythm, to name a few. Although it is present in many fresh, unprocessed foods, magnesium is lacking in highly-processed foods that make up the majority of the diets of people all over the world. In the absence of a healthy diet, dietary supplementation with magnesium may be advisable to ensure one’s proper health. Magnesium glycinate is highly absorbable and bioavailable and is one of the most efficient ways of adding magnesium to the diet. It readily passes through intestinal walls via passive pathways that are not dependent on the general pH levels in the GI tract. Albion’s TRAACS® magnesium glycinate carries proof of chelation as measured by a patented laboratory test process. This, and other factors, ensures that it is the most advanced magnesium glycinate ingredient in the marketplace. Features Superior Absorption & Bioavailability. Chelation with glycine changes local pH and significantly enhances absorption. Magnesium glycinate is not dependent on gastric acid for absorption. Contains TRAACS® premium magnesium glycinate from Albion Laboratories. The chelation bonding of TRAACS® ingredients is proven through a patented laboratory test method. 400 mg of Magnesium per serving. Vegan/Vegetarian. Gluten, Soy, and DairyFree.   Benefits In the decades-long Framingham Heart Study, higher magnesium levels were associated with a significantly lower chance of calcification of coronary and abdominal arteries.† Higher intake of magnesium is associated with a reduction in the occurrence of arrhythmia. Magnesium is also used as a clinical intervention in certain types of ventricular arrhythmias.† National Institutes of Health issued findings that higher magnesium levels in the blood are strongly associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.† Magnesium helps the body respond quickly to stress, and helps give the body a deep sense of relaxation.† Magnesium is critical for the relaxation of the smooth muscles, including those found in blood vessels.† Higher magnesium intake is associated with a lower risk of atherosclerosis.† Reductions in magnesium levels have been linked to increased levels of anxiety.† Magnesium is essential for maintaining normal, healthy blood pressure.† Magnesium a cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic processes, including the activities of hormones, neurotransmitters, and other cellular regulators.† Magnesium is required for certain processes involving ATP, DNA, and RNA.†   Certifications Ingredients Albion® Story Albion | Minerals .

    Chromium is an essential trace mineral required by the body in very small amounts.  The biologically active form of chromium known as GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor) is a complex of chromium and the B-vitamin niacin.  Several forms of chromium exist, but ChromeMate® (generically called chromium nicotinate, chromium polynicotinate or niacin-bound chromium) is the only patented niacin-bound chromium complex backed by significant scientific research.  ChromeMate® closely resembles GTF and, therefore has similar biological activity.  Chromium has been shown to be important for proper insulin function, nutrient metabolism, normal energy production, and promotion of healthy body weight and lean body mass.* Features: Provides 200 mcg of chromium from niacin bound ChromeMate® per capsule. Efficacy and safety backed by numerous scientific studies. A unique niacin-bound chromium complex that supports the bioavailability and biological activity of chromium. Studies have shown that ChromeMate® is 18-times more bioactive than other forms of niacin-bound chromium Studies show ChromeMate® is absorbed and retained 600% better than chromium chloride and 300% better than chromium picolinate. Benefits: ChromeMate® helps potentiate (support) the action of insulin in the body. Insulin is a vital hormone responsible for transporting glucose and other nutrients into cells, and maintaining healthy blood sugar and blood lipid levels.* Studies show that ChromeMate® (by supporting lipid and cholesterol metabolism) helps maintain cholesterol levels (total, LDL and HDL) already in the normal range.* ChromeMate® helps support healthy blood glucose, insulin and triglyceride levels as well as HgbA1C (marker of long-term blood glucose control).  These are all markers used to measure risk for metabolic syndrome and Type 2 diabetes.* Clinical studies using ChromeMate® show that it helps support lean body mass and healthy body fat levels.*

    AlchePharma Poly-4X is a supplement that contains Oligonol, a low-molecular-weight polyphenol derived from a combination of lychee fruit (85%) and green tea (15%). Supported by 30 human clinical trials, Oligonol has numerous health benefits, including reducing visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and brown spots, improving endurance and energy levels, supporting healthy blood circulation, protecting against free radical damage, and helping the body manage inflammation. Poly-4X is rich in polyphenols, a beneficial plant compound known for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties. Through studies by pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers, we have learned that the lychee fruit in Poly-4X has many health and beauty benefits. By stimulating blood flow, Poly-4X's Oligonol is believed to increase anti-aging properties and improve skin conditions. Tests have shown that the supplement can reduce facial breakouts, acne, and the appearance of wrinkles and freckles on female test subjects. Over time, women who consumed Poly-4X's Oligonol claimed to notice better skin elasticity, making them appear more vibrant, healthy, and youthful. Poly-4X's Oligonol has also been shown to have potential in reducing visceral fat, a hallmark of metabolic syndrome, which increases the risk of coronary heart disease. In a clinical trial, participants who took 100 mg/day of Poly-4X's Oligonol for 10 weeks saw a 12% reduction in visceral fat, while the placebo group showed no change. In addition, Poly-4X's Oligonol has shown potential in sports recovery by reducing fatigue after exercise, increasing endurance, and reducing levels of pro-inflammatory markers. By improving blood flow, more oxygen is delivered to the muscles, and more waste is removed, preventing fatigue. Oligonol supplementation may also help regulate body temperature and sweat loss, making it a natural way to boost performance in high heat and high-stress situations for athletes. Research has shown that taking Poly-4X's Oligonol could limit the sun's damaging UVB rays, preventing sun-induced skin aging and skin cancer. Oligonol suppresses inflammation and enhances the body's natural antioxidant defenses, protecting the skin from UVB damage. Lastly, in a study of six healthy male volunteers, Oligonol significantly decreased uric acid excretion and clearance while reducing the concentration of uric acid.

    Diabetes mellitus is statistically the most common endocrine disorder in the world. It is considered one of the top five most leading causes of death, affecting 16 million individuals in the United States and as many as 200 million individuals worldwide. Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome of disordered metabolism, usually due to a combination of hereditary and primarily, environmental causes(poor diet choices/physical inactivity), resulting in abnormally high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia/high A1C). Since ancient times, plants and plant extracts have been used to combat diabetes. Bitter Melon plant, also known as; bitter gourd, karela and balsam pear. The fruit from Bitter Melon has been used for the treatment of diabetes and related conditions, amongst the indigenous populations of Asia, South America, India and East Africa. Pre-clinical studies have documented its anti-diabetic and hypoglycemic(blood sugar lowering) effects of Bitter Melon. Features: Standardized to 5% Charantin. Charantin is one of the key major compounds found in Bitter Melon to be identified as a hypoglycemic agent (lower blood sugar), and potential anti-diabetic properties. Studies have shown that the compound Charantin found in Bitter Melon, is more effective than the hypoglycemic/Diabetic Medication Tolbutamide. Bitter Melon is traditionally known for its potential medicinal properties such as antidiabetic, anticancer, anti-inflammation, antivirus, and cholesterol/lipid lowering effects Studies have also shown that bitter melon contains anti-carcinogenic properties and may be used as a cytotoxic agent against many types of cancer May support the normal health and lifespan of the hormone-producing beta cells found in the Pancreas, the organ that secrets Insulin and manages Blood Sugar levels in the body.

    Chromium Picolinate (Chelated to picolinic acid) 200 mcg.

    Chromium is a trace mineral that helps potentiate insulin function, therefore helps support carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. Several studies have shown that chromium helps support glucose levels already in the normal range, in individuals with impaired glucose tolerance. The mechanisms by which chromium works are not completely understood. We know from animal and human studies that when given a chromium deficient diet, we see abnormal glucose metabolism, increased blood glucose, and impaired insulin function. Chromium in the form of chromium picolinate is chromium bound to (chelated to) picolinic acid, a compound that seems to enhance the absorption of chromium which is typically poorly absorbed. Chromium picolinate has been shown to be better absorbed and more bioavailable than chromium chloride, but slightly less than chromium polynicotinate.†   Features Chromium bound to (chelated to) picolinic acid. Clinical studies on safety and efficacy. 200mcg per capsule.   Benefits Studies show chromium picolinate is better absorbed than chromium chloride (non-chelated).† Research studies show chromium picolinate helps support blood glucose and cholesterol levels already in the normal range.† Beneficial to individuals who consume mostly refined foods and or have impaired glucose tolerance.† Some studies, however, not strong, show chromium picolinate may help support lean body mass and reduce body fat.†   LABEL

    Astragalus membranaceus, more commonly known as Astragalus, or huáng qí, is an herb that has been traditionally used in Chinese Medicine for Centuries, and sometimes used through Intravenous(IV) Therapy in a hospital setting. Although there are about 2,000 varieties of Astragalus, Astragalus membranaceus, is one of the primary ones that are used for its benefits. Astragalus herb is traditionally used in its dried powdered form or as a strong decoction, made from boiling the dried root in water. The many phytochemical compounds found in specifically the Root of Astragalus, are believed to harness its various uses for potential health benefits.     Benefits:  Astragalus contains compounds & polysaccharides that may aid in boosting the immune system. In vitro studies have demonstrated that Astragalus promotes B-cell proliferation and antibody production and enhances CTL (Cytotoxic T-lymphocytes) activity. So it may suggest an immuno-stimulating effect. Contains Astragalosides (antioxidants), which support the integrity of the respiratory tract. In Chinese Medicine, one of its primary uses has been as a lung tonic, and may help in resistance against respiratory tract infections. Antioxidants found in Astragalus have been found to increase superoxide dismutase (Enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells) and decreasing lipid peroxide activity (Lipid Peroxidation Products depending upon their concentration, cause selective alterations in cell signaling, protein and DNA damage, and cytotoxicity, therefore potentially reducing the possibility). Astragalus has been used in Chinese Medicinal recipes for the aid of kidney disorders and its diuretic effect. Proteinuria is a condition in which abnormal amounts of protein are found in urine, a sign that the kidneys may be damaged or not functioning correctly. Astragalus was found to reduce and improve Proteinuria in several studies. May also aid in reduction of infection with individuals with decreased renal function.   Suggested Use: Take 1 Cap, 1-3 times per day or as directed by a health care professional. Label
