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.
Plant Protein ( Premium Blend ) - No Soy, Hypoallergenic, No Grit ( Featuring Omega 3 Rich Sacha Inchi and Chia )(2)
Enjoy all the goodness of the best tasting plant protein that Mother Nature has to offer! Background: Protein is an important macronutrient that is an essential to preserving and nurturing good health. While its importance is undisputed; most people over look plants as a viable source for their protein requirement. Although animal sourced proteins are ranked higher on the food chain than plants; they also have appreciable amounts of cholesterol and saturated fats. Additionally, they can also be a source of antibiotics, hormones and other undesirable elements that are part and parcel of food production as we know it today. Plant proteins however have no cholesterol or saturated fat and when properly formulated; provide proteins with a biological value that is comparable to other popular sources of animal derived proteins. Pea protein, as an example, is rich in branch chain amino acids which is essential for preserving and building muscle. Sacha Inchi and chia are rich in omega 3 and along with cranberry compliment the protein profile of pea to provide a plant protein that mixes well, tastes great, and is easy to digest.

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.

Superzymes™- Digestive Support Multi-Enzyme Formula ( High Strength Amylase, Protease, Lipase ) Formulae(0)
The digestion of food involves a complex system of organs, hormones, and enzymes. Many people have difficulty digesting foods, particularly as they age. The incomplete or partial digestion of foods can lead to uncomfortable side effects. Many of the indications are quite clear; intestinal gas, bloating, cramping, heartburn and diarrhea. However, some effects are not as clear, such as the poor utilization of food and even nutrient deficiencies. Superzymes is a multi-enzyme formula, containing both animal and plant derived enzymes, designed to support normal, healthy digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.* Features: Contains betaine HCL, a form of hydrochloric acid. Provides pepsin, bromelain and papain to help support protein digestion. Ox bile extract provides bile to help emulsify fat preparing it for digestion. Pancreatin pancreas extract provides various protein, carbohydrate as well as fat digesting enzymes. Benefits: Betaine HCL – A mild form of hydrochloric acid, a component of gastric juice. Betaine HCL helps support the digestive process, particularly the beginning of protein digestion, before food moves on to the intestines. Aging and medications such as antacids reduce the production/effectiveness of HCL. A reduction in HCL may exacerbate digestive problems due to the inefficiency to digest protein and other essential nutrients. HCL is especially important for the absorption of many nutrients including calcium, folic acid, B12, and iron. Besides nutrient deficiency a reduction in HCL slows down the digestive process, resulting in food remaining in the stomach for a longer period of time, often times leading to digestive discomfort.* Pepsin – This is an enzyme which begins the process of protein digestion in the stomach. This proteolytic enzyme is designed to function in an environment where there is a low pH and high acid content such as the stomach.* Bromelain –Derived from pineapple, is a proteolytic enzyme which helps break down protein.* Papain – Derived from papaya provides an array of proteolytic enzymes to support protein digestion.* Ox bile extract – helps emulsify fat, preparing it for digestion by fat digesting enzymes (lipases).* Pancreatin – containing amylase (carbohydrate digestion), protease (protein digestion), and lipase (fat digestion). The combination of digestive enzymes in pancreatin has been shown to provide significant support to the digestion and absorption of essential nutrients. 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
