What is Cinnulin PF ? Cinnulin PF is a proprietary water soluble extract of Cinnamomum burmannii. The proprietary extraction process helps filter out toxins found in whole cinnamon. It is the only extract standardized for doubly linked Type-A Polymers, specifically tetramers and trimers shown in clinical research to have a host of health benefits, particularly those related to Metabolic Syndrome.* In a recent study, (Ziegenfuss, et al 2007) 83% of those given the active Type A Polymers experienced a significant decrease in fasting blood sugar (about an 8% drop), compared to only 33% in the placebo group. Moreover, subjects additionally showed statistically lower body fat, enhanced lean body mass, lower systolic blood pressure and saw improvements in various antioxidant measures.* How Does It Work? USDA scientist, Dr. Richard A. Anderson has done extensive research regarding the mechanism of action of the doubly linked Type-A Polymers isolated from water soluble extracts of cinnamon. In one particular study, (Jarvill-Taylor, Anderson, Graves, et al 2001) these polyphenolic polymers increased glucose metabolism roughly 20-fold in vitro. Another study, (Anderson, Broadhurst, Polansky, Schmidt, Khan, Flanagan, Schoene, Graves, et al 2004) demonstrated these polymers were effective mimetics of insulin in vitro. In animals, the doubly linked Type-A Polymers appear to have supporting effects on reducing blood pressure. In humans, Cinnulin PF also appears to support glucose transport mechanisms by enhancing the insulin signaling pathways. Cinnulin PF helps metabolic syndrome factors by supporting healthy glucose levels, body composition and blood pressure in healthy individuals. In yet another human study Cinnulin PF showed significant enhancements in some of the regulatory markers related to lean tissue enhancement. (Willouhby DW, in press) Additional findings noted were enhanced trends in markers mean power and strength.* Application and Serving Size: Cinnulin PF is an appropriate nutritional support product for healthy glucose levels, body composition, blood pressure and antioxidant function in healthy individuals.* It can be administered in a capsule, tablet, powder or liquid. The recommended serving size for Cinnulin PF is 250 mgs twice daily prior to meals.* Label Ingredients (Cinnamomum burmannii bark) extract (20:1) , Vegetarian capsule (cellulose, water), magnesium stearate and silica.
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

Lecithin is a natural emulsifier found in many foods. It is often found in foods such as mayonnaise (mixture of fat and water-soluble substance) where eggs which contain lecithin act as an emulsifying agent to keep them mixed together rather than separated such as what happens in a mixture of oil and vinegar due to a lack of an emulsifier like lecithin. Our lecithin is derived from soybeans. Lecithin from soy is an excellent source of phospholipids. These compounds play important structural and functional roles in the cell, particularly the cell membrane. About 60% of the dry weight of the brain is composed of phospholipids, hence their importance in brain structure and function. As part of the structure of brain cell membranes, phospholipids help support neurotransmitter and hormone function, as they provide the environment that cells need for cell to cell communication and overall cell function. Phosphatidylcholine is a good source of choline, which is needed to support neurotransmitter production, essential for the normal, healthy functioning of the nervous system. Lecithin has also been studied for its role in helping to support healthy cholesterol metabolism, fat digestion and metabolism, thereby providing support for healthy cholesterol levels.* Benefits: Excellent source of phosphatidylcholine (PC), an important phospholipid that is a significant component of the cell membrane particularly that of nerve cells including the brain. PC is also a source of choline which is used by the body to make the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Lecithin is also a source of other phospholipids including phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylethanolamine. Both of these compounds are critical to normal, healthy cell function.* Phosphatidylcholine provides a source of choline which the body uses to manufacture acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in numerous neurological mechanisms including cell to cell communication, particularly as it relates to learning and short term memory.* PC levels have been shown to decline with age, therefore supplementation becomes even more important as we age.* PC has also been shown to help support normal, healthy liver and gall bladder function.*
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.

Ingredients: CarnipureTM *** 1,100 mg ** (L-Carnitine), Pantothenic Acid 10 mg (as calcium pantothenate) Purified water, glycerin, hydroxy-citric acid,natural flavors, citric acid, and sodium benzoateL-carnitine's role in fat metabolism can be easily summarized: Carnipure turns stored fat into energy.More precisely, L-carnitine is essential for transporting long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane, for subsequent fat breakdown and energy generationAdditional Health BenefitsDue to its fundamental role in energy metabolism, L-carnitine is typically used by the body to support functions that have a high energy demand. In this sense, L-carnitine supplementation plays a role in heart health, male fertility, healthy aging, as well as for infants, pregnant women, and vegetarians.Carnipure: EnergyCarnipure L-Carnitine is the nutrient needed to help support the conversion of fat into metabolic energy. Studies suggest Carnipure L-Carnitine can be used to sustain energy, as its main metabolic function is to transport long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix for beta-oxidation. Our Research Reviews In the latest study, the scientists measured levels of LAC (acetyl-L-carnitine) in blood samples taken from people diagnosed with MDD. They found that levels were significantly decreased in these patients, as compared to age-matched individuals without depression. Additional analysis revealed that patients with very low LAC exhibited more severe depression and were more likely to develop MDD early in life. Finally, the researchers found that decreased LAC was associated with having a history of childhood trauma and treatment-resistant depression, particularly in women. #acetyllcarnitine #depression #supplement Carla Nasca, Benedetta Bigio, Francis S.

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2018; 201801609 DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1801609115 How does L-carnitine maintain the normal structure of sciatic nerve in crush injury? - Several studies have demonstrated that L-carnitine exhibits neuroprotective effects on injured sciatic nerve of rats with diabetes mellitus. Dr. Ümmü Zeynep Avsar, Faculty of Medicine, Ataturk University, Turkey and his team proposed a hypothesis that L-carnitine exhibits neuroprotective effects on injured sciatic nerve of rats. Rat sciatic nerve was crush injured by a forceps and exhibited degenerative changes. After intragastric administration of 50 and 100 mg/kg L-carnitine for 30 days, axon area, myelin sheath area, axon diameter, myelin sheath diameter, and numerical density of the myelinated axons of injured sciatic nerve were similar to normal, and the function of injured sciatic nerve also improved significantly. These findings suggest that L-carnitine exhibits neuroprotective effects on sciatic nerve crush injury in rats. This paper was published in Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 9, No. 10, 2014).
Green Tea Extract 300mg- (Water Extracted, Solvent Free, European Standardized) and 150mg Catechins per VegCap
Green tea has been consumed as a beverage for centuries. It originated in China and then spread to Japan and the Middle East. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the health benefits of green tea. The active components of green tea are known as polyphenols. The polyphenols that demonstrate the most significant biological effects are the catechins, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). These compounds have significant biological activity. They work in several ways to improve cardiovascular health, support normal, healthy cell growth, provide antioxidant protection and support a healthy metabolism.* Our European Standardized Green Tea Extract is made by a water extraction method without the use of harmful solvents.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Pure Unflavored Thermogenic* Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oils. They’re more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats. MCTs are readily absorbed from the GI tract and are metabolized very quickly by the liver, where they are reported to encourage the use of fat for energy rather than for storage.* Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.* Natural color variation may occur in this product.

Background: Selenium is an essential trace mineral that is required for many important biochemical functions in the body. In humans, selenium functions as a coenzyme for the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase. Glutathione peroxidase helps neutralize harmful peroxide free radicals. Selenium also plays an important role in the production of thyroid hormones. Selenium is a coenzyme for the enzymes which are responsible for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. These enzymes are important for the regulation of basal metabolic rate (resting metabolic rate-rate at which you burn calories). Studies show Selenium helps support the body’s antioxidant defenses and contributes to the growth of normal, healthy cells.* Features: Provides 200 mcg of Selenium. FDA has approved health claims for selenium that indicate it may be helpful in preventing certain cancers. Benefits: Provides a well absorbed, highly bioavailable form of this important trace mineral. Studies show selenium works synergistically with vitamin E to provide antioxidant support helping protect healthy cells, particularly red blood cells from free radical damage.* The broad composition of seleno compounds increases the absorption and bioavailability. Selenium helps support the functioning of the powerful antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase (GPX). GPX helps neutralize damaging peroxide radicals, which can potentially cause damage to healthy cells and their DNA.* Studies show a high intake of selenium helps support a healthy prostate by promoting normal, healthy prostate cell growth.* Adequate intake of selenium helps support normal, healthy thyroid function and a healthy metabolism.* Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer.* However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and inconclusive.

ULTRA GI CLEANSE (No Harsh Laxatives) w/ demulcent and carminative properties that soothe the mucosal lining.
Gastrointestinal problems are common conditions that plague our society. Pharmacies and supermarkets offer a wide selection of products designed to provide temporary relief of symptoms, rather than address the underlying cause. The majority of gastrointestinal conditions are related to the typical American diet which focuses on highly processed and refined, high fat, high sugar and low fiber foods. This type of diet results in poor digestive health which can to lead to irregular bowel movements and the increased amount of time fecal matter comes in contact with the cells lining the intestinal tract. Our Colon Cleanse formula provides a synergistic combination of ingredients that help support normal, healthy bowel function, which in turn encourages the “regular” elimination of waste material. By encouraging “regularity”, this formula helps support overall health and wellness, which is oftentimes related to normal, healthy gastrointestinal function.* Features: Synergistic combination of plant extracts designed to support healthy intestinal function.* Supports regularity without the use of harsh laxatives.* Contains herbs with demulcent and carminative properties that soothe the mucosal lining. Easy to swallow vegetarian capsules Gluten free Benefits: Cascara Sagrada helps to support smooth muscle contraction of the colon and facilitate the elimination of waste. It also has a toning and strengthening effect that can support normal bowel function.* Aloe vera leaf contains compounds known as anthraquinone glycosides. Numerous studies have demonstrated the ability of these compounds to support normal colon function and stool consistency. Aloe not only supports the smooth muscle contraction of the colon but also provides a soothing demulcent effect to the lining of the gastrointestinal tract.* Flax seed provides the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid. This fat has been shown to support a healthy inflammatory response. Flaxseed also provides a source of fiber and lignans, both of which benefit intestinal health.* Marshmallow root is a demulcent which contains compounds that help soothe and protect the mucous lining of the intestinal tract.* Peppermint contains compounds called carminatives. These compounds have been shown to have a “relaxing” affect on the smooth muscle that lines the intestinal tract, and can provide support for normal, healthy intestinal function.* Slippery Elm is another highly regarded demulcent that soothes the intestinal lining.* Rhubarb benefits the muscles of the intestinal wall by supporting strength and overall function. As an astringent, this plant extract also helps to protect the lining of the colon.* Label
