A.H.C.C.® Plus
$148.18

A.H.C.C.® Plus supplies a unique mushroom-derived extract called A.H.C.C (active hexose correlated compound) combined with arabinogalactan from the Eastern Larch tree. Mushrooms have always been an important part of Asian medicine and are known to contain numerous substances that help support the body. The active compound in A.H.C.C. is thought to be an α−1,4 linked glucose oligosaccharide with a molecular weight less than 5,000 daltons. This oligosaccharide cannot be found in typical mushroom preparations. Scientific research indicates that A.H.C.C. is an antioxidant that offers protective effects against free radicals. It may provide particular support to T-cell precursors known as thymocytes, which are highly susceptible to oxidative stress.
Indications

  • Antioxidant
Acetyl L-Carnitine
$36.47

Acetyl-L-carnitine, a naturally occurring metabolite of L-carnitine, plays a key role in supporting cognitive function during aging while helping to reduce fatigue. In most tissues of the body, both L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine are involved in fatty acid oxidation. L-carnitine shuttles fatty acids from the cytosol (the cell fluid) into the mitochondria (the cell’s powerhouses) for oxidation and energy production. In the brain, acetyl-L-carnitine specifically acts on fatty acid oxidation in astrocytes and neurons to produce energy. The compound exerts its cognitive protective effects through three main actions. Acetyl-L-Carnitine protects tissues against oxidative stress while producing energy and influences the activity of nerve growth factor (NGF), the neuropeptide responsible for the growth, maintenance, and survival of certain neurons. It has also been shown that acetyl-L-carnitine can help to maintain cellular membrane stability and to restore age related membranal changes.

Indication

  • Fatigue
  • Supports cognitive function in the elderly
Adrenplus-300
$37.04

Adrenplus-300 supplies a combination of vitamins and minerals needed to maintain good health, plus adrenal and spleen glandular concentrate. The adrenal glands are endocrine glands located above the kidneys that are responsible for producing mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids and androgens, as well as adrenaline and noradrenaline. The spleen is located in the upper-left abdomen and is primarily responsible for filtering blood.
As co-enzymes, B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of nutrients. B vitamins folate and B12 are also necessary for blood cell formation.
Zinc is an essential trace element required for the activity of over 300 enzymes and is involved in most major metabolic pathways. Vitamin A plays a critical role in maintaining eyesight and night vision through its role in the formation of the retinal pigment rhodopsin. Both zinc and vitamin A help maintain skin and immune health.
Adrenplus-300 also provides vitamin C, an important water-soluble antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage. The adrenal glands contain some of the highest vitamin C levels in the body, and may require the antioxidant vitamin to quench free radicals produced during steroidogenesis.
Indications

  • Nutrient metabolism
  • Antioxidant defence
  • Immune health
Alpha-GPC
$70.86

Alpha-GPC, also known as alpha-glycerophosphocholine, is a phospholipid-like compound found in all tissues of the body, including the brain. Alpha-GPC can be readily converted to phosphatidylcholine, the most abundant phospholipid found in the body. In the brain, this is especially important as phosphatidylcholine plays an important role in cellular signaling and the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. As phospholipid metabolites change throughout normal aging processes, Alpha-GPC helps maintain cognitive function during aging. Randomized control trials have found that Alpha-GPC supplementation helps mental focus, recall, attention and cognitive function in both middle aged and elderly adults. Alpha-GPC is also a source of choline for the maintenance of good health. In addition to its role in the brain, choline has been found to have numerous biological functions in the body including involvement in methylation and cellular signaling pathways.

Indications

  • Helps maintain cognitive function during aging
  • Source of choline for the maintenance of good health
Andreno-Mend™
$70.00

The adrenal glands are located above the kidneys and release hormones that help the body respond to stress. AdrenoMend is designed to promote optimal function of the various homeostasis regulatory systems that work with the adrenal glands to maintain physiological function during both acute and chronic stress. This formulation includes a combination of ten highly valued herbal extracts. Schisandra is used in Herbal Medicine as an adaptogen to help increase energy and resistance to stress. Along with Eleuthero, it helps support mental performance and physical working capacity, and helps promote the balanced response of the sympatho-adrenal-system (SAS) to the body’s acute reaction to a stressor. Similarly, Panax is used in Herbal Medicine to help reduce mental fatigue and enhance physical capacity. It is also used as a supportive therapy for the promotion of healthy glucose levels as it mediates the stress induced elevations of catecholamines and adrenaline-induced hyperglycemia. To provide additional cognitive support, Ashwagandha and Bacopa are included for their traditional use in Ayurveda for memory enhancement. Ashwagandha is also traditionally used in Ayurveda as a rejuvenative tonic, sedative and sleep aid.
Indications

  • Stress relief
Ayur-Ashwaganda
$31.34

Withania somnifera, also known as Ashwaganda, is an important herb traditionally used in India as part of Ayurvedic medicine. Ashwaganda is traditionally used in Ayurveda for general debility during healing processes, known as convalescence, or old age. Ashwaganda is thought to increase the body’s resistance to biological and chemical stresses, and thus stimulate a person’s general vitality, both physical and emotional. Although the exact mechanism is unknown, it is believed that Ashwaganda exerts its beneficial effects on the body by modulating GABA receptors in the brain. The class of compounds known as withanolides are thought to contribute to Ashwaganda’s beneficial effects on the mind and body.

Indications

  • Traditionally used in Ayurveda to relieve general debility, especially during convalescence or old age
Brain Calm
$41.13

Brain Calm is an effective blend of critical amino acids and herbs that promote relaxation and sleep. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid that functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Most neurotransmitters, such as acetylcholine and noradrenaline, promote a feeling of wakefulness and alertness, however GABA acts by blocking these –excitatory” neurotransmitters to promote relaxation in the brain. By promoting relaxation, GABA has been shown to help sleep irregularities such as the inability to fall asleep or waking during the night. Additionally, Brain Calm contains Passion flower, which is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine as a sleep aid, especially in times of restlessness or sleeplessness due to mental stress. Plant compounds of Passion flower exert effects in the brain by binding to GABA receptors, promoting a relaxation effect similar to GABA itself. By reducing feelings of anxiousness and stress, randomized control trials have found that Passion flower improves overall sleep quality.

Indications

  • Temporarily promotes relaxation
  • Passionflower is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a sleep aid
Brain Energy
$45.59

Brain Energy supplies essential nutrients and precursor amino acids carefully formulated to help temporarily relieve symptoms of stress and support cognitive function. Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that can be converted to tyrosine, a precursor of important neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine. Rhodiola rosea is a plant found in the arctic mountain regions of Siberia. As an adaptogen, rhodiola is thought to increase the body’s resistance to biological and chemical stresses, and thus stimulate a person’s general vitality, both physical and emotional. Methionine, an essential amino acid, and octacosanol, a compound found in vegetable oils, are also included in this formula.

INDICATIONS

  • Relief of stress symptoms
  • Cognitive function
Brain Memory
$58.70

Brain Memory is a combination of nutrients, specially designed to help enhance cognitive function and memory in adults.

Ginkgo biloba extract is well studied in terms of brain function and cognition. It contains flavonoids and other plant constituents which have many beneficial effects in the brain including decreasing inflammation, increasing cerebral blood flow, scavenging free radicals and increasing the activity of various neurotransmitters including 5-HTP, dopamine, and noradrenaline. Together, these various effects in the brain are thought to enhance cognitive function in older adults.

GPC Choline is used to form phosphatidylcholine, the most abundant phospholipid found in the body. In the brain, this is especially important as phosphatidylcholine plays a critical role in cellular signaling and the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcholine acts in the central nervous system to enhance the activity of neurons. Additionally, an extract of the Chinese club moss, Huperzia serrata, Huperzine A has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. It is an effective inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme that degrades acetylcholine.

Indications

  • Helps to enhance cognitive function and memory in adults
Brain Mood
$71.43

Brain Mood is a blend of several ingredients, including L-5-Hydroxytrytophan (5-HTP), used to aid in sleep. 5-HTP modulates the formation of the key neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain, which is used as a precursor to form melatonin, the hormone responsible for sleep. In the body, 5-HTP is synthesized from the amino acid L-tryptophan. The formation of serotonin is completely dependent on the amount of L-tryptophan and 5-HTP available in the central nervous system. Once inside the brain, L-tryptophan is converted to 5-HTP, which is then used to synthesize serotonin.

L-tryptophan is dependent on an enzyme, tryptophan hydroxylase, to cross the blood brain barrier, however this enzyme can be inhibited by a number of different factors. 5-HTP, the metabolite of L-tryptophan, is well absorbed from the diet and is able to freely cross the blood brain barrier without requiring a transport molecule. Supplementation with 5-HTP has been shown to increase sleep quality, particularly by increasing Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep and regulating sleep patterns.

St. John’s Wort has been used in Herbal Medicine for hundreds of years and is known to have a variety of traditional-type uses. As co-enzymes, the B vitamins thiamine, niacinamide, folic acid, vitamin B12, and pantothenic acid are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. Vitamin B12 and folate are also important for the formation of red blood cells.

Indications

  • Sleep aid
Cal-6+Mag™
$27.83

Cal-6+Mag is a special complex of six sources of calcium with magnesium and other ingredients to assist the body in maintaining healthy bone structure. Calcium is a primary mineral for building the strong structure of bones and teeth, while adequate vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet and regular exercise may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. Recent animal studies show that magnesium supplementation supports bone formation while increasing its dynamic strength, but also balances normal bone resorption processes. Additionally, magnesium is also involved in maintaining proper muscle function, including the heart muscle. Vitamin C further assists in the maintenance of healthy bone structure and function as it plays a critical role in the synthesis of collagen, the building material of all connective tissues. Boron is also an important trace mineral found in high concentrations in the bone.

INDICATIONS

  • Osteo-support
  • Periodontal health
  • Muscle function
Cal/Mag 2001
$27.83

Calcium and magnesium in a 2:1 dose ratio plus other nutrients

The adult human body contains approximately 1,200 grams of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the skeleton, and 20-30 grams of magnesium of which 60% is located in bone. Bone is constantly turned over and is a source of calcium when serum calcium falls. Supplementation has been shown to offset the calcium depleting affects of a high intake of sodium and caffeine commonly seen in the North American diet.

Calcium absorption is dependent on ionization in the intestine. Insufficient stomach acid can reduce calcium absorption to as low as four percent. Calcium bound to Kreb cycle intermediates, such as citrate, are the most absorbable forms of calcium and therefore provide greater benefit than other sources. Calcium citrate in a 2:1 ratio with magnesium has been shown to be one of the most bioavailable forms of calcium delivery to the body.

Vitamin D plays a role in calcium and bone metabolism. Adequate vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of calcium plasma levels. Furthermore, calcium intake when combined with vitamin D, a healthy diet and regular exercise may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.

Magnesium is essential for the development and maintenance of bones and teeth and helps ensure proper muscle function.

Indications

  • Bone and teeth maintenance
  • Muscle function
  • Calcium and phosphorus absorption
Cardio MetX™
$59.37

Cardio MetX is a unique blend of cranberry, strawberry and amla fruit extracts combined with a bioavailable form of chromium to support cardiovascular health and glucose metabolism. All three branded ingredients, Capros®, GlucoPhenol and Zychrome®, show clinical support for healthy blood lipid, blood glucose and insulin levels. GlucoPhenol is a concentrated combination of strawberry and cranberry extracts selected for their polyphenol content. The extracts were studied in partnership with Atrium Innovations and Laval University to show that polyphenols from Orleans strawberry and cranberry support insulin sensitivity in men and women. Capros®, the Indian gooseberry also known as amla, is a rich source of ellagitannins and has a wide range of polyphenolic bioactive compounds, including flavonoids, kaempferol, ellagic acid and gallic acid. As an extract, amla standardized to 60% tannins has been shown to support cardiovascular health at a dose of 500 mg daily. Chromium has been used to help balance blood glucose levels. Studies show that Zychrome®, a mineral chelate that combines chromium with niacin and L-cysteine, is more effective at supporting healthy glucose metabolism. Chelated minerals are bound to amino acids to help increase their absorption by the body. Indications

  • Cardiovascular support
  • Healthy glucose metabolism
  • Antioxidant activity
Choles-Sterol®
$65.54

Choles-Sterol® is a unique scientifically-based cholesterol support formula with Sytrinol, plant sterols and pomegranate extract.

Sytrinol provides a patented and well-researched combination of flavonoids derived from the peel of tangerines and tocotrienols from palm fruits. The flavonoids in SytrinolÈ have been shown to decrease apolipoprotein B, the structural protein needed for the synthesis of LDL-cholesterol, as well as diacylglycerol acetyl transferase, an enzyme in the liver involved in the synthesis of triglycerides. Tocotrienols, a group of compounds belonging to the vitamin E family, have been shown to inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, the hepatic enzyme responsible for the rate limiting step in cholesterol synthesis. Similarly, the brightly coloured pomegranate fruit contains numerous compounds known for their antioxidant capabilities, including anthocyanidins, catechins, tannis, and gallic and ellagic acids.

Plant sterols are naturally occurring plant compounds that have structures similar to cholesterol. Research has shown that these compounds compete with the absorption of dietary cholesterol and inhibit the reabsorption of endogenous cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract. Supplementation with plant sterols can significantly lower cholesterol levels, providing yet another mechanism by which healthy cholesterol levels can be maintained.

Indications

  • Cholesterol support
Corvalen M®
$95.74

Corvalen M® offers D-ribose, a natural pentose sugar, plus magnesium to help utilize energy and maintain proper muscle function. This formula also contains malic acid, sometimes knows as the “apple acid.”

D-Ribose is the backbone of the molecular structure of ATP, the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body. D-ribose in ATP is naturally present in every living cell in our bodies. Corvalen M® D-ribose is non-GMO, highly soluble in both hot and cold solutions, and tastes slightly sweet and tart. D-ribose is rapidly and readily (~95%) absorbed with peak blood levels found within 30-45 minutes. Ribose not taken up by the cell is excreted unchanged in the urine. Although D-ribose is a five-carbon monosaccharide, it does not raise blood sugar.

Magnesium is critical in facilitating hundreds of biochemical reactions including those involved in energy production. Interconnected with ATP, magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes, glycolysis, formation of c-AMP, energy-dependent membrane transport, and muscle function.

Indications

  • Muscle function
  • Energy metabolism
  • Electrolyte balance
Corvalen®
$87.29

Corvalen® contains pure D-ribose, a pentose sugar that supports the way our bodies produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the cell. D-ribose is a safe and clinically researched ingredient designed to provide athletic support by regulating fatigue, energy production and mitochondrial function. This slightly sweet D-ribose powder is highly soluble, and rapidly and readily (~95%) absorbed into the body, with peak blood levels found within 30 _ 45 minutes. Our bodies must have an adequate supply of nucleotides to form major cellular constituents, such as our genetic material, cofactors, vitamins and importantly, ATP. Ribose is the starting point for the synthesis of these fundamental cellular compounds and the availability of ribose determines their rate of synthesis. Ribose is formed naturally via the pentose phosphate pathway. This pathway is slow and rate-limited in cardiac and skeletal muscle due to an inherently low concentration of the enzymes glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase. Administration of exogenous ribose bypasses the rate-limiting steps in this pathway, resulting in a significant acceleration in nucleotide and ATP formation. D-ribose is indicated for sports and fitness activities because it helps reduce the loss of energy during stress, and accelerates energy and tissue/muscle recovery. D-ribose may also support proper heart function and healthy stroke volume during and after intense exercise. Thus, it helps to maintain performance and promote endurance in extended, high intensity exercise. Indications

  • Athletic support
  • Source of carbohydrates to support energy production
D-Mannose
$62.78

d-Mannose is a simple sugar found naturally in fruits such as cranberries and pineapples. It is absorbed slowly from the gastrointestinal tract and unlike many sugars, it is not converted into glycogen or stored in the liver. Much of the d-Mannose consumed is filtered by the kidneys and delivered to the bladder, where it is excreted in the urine. Daily supplementation with d-Mannose is a great alternative to drinking cranberry juice as cranberry juice frequently contains high levels of fructose and is not often standardized to d-Mannose concentrations.

Dyna-Cal
$39.32

Dyna-Cal provides a significant amount of dietary calcium along with other ingredients, such as glutamic acid, to ensure proper acidity for enhanced absorption.
About 99% of calcium is present in the skeleton, where it supports bone formation and decreases bone loss. Nearly 60% of magnesium is found in bone, where it mediates bone-forming osteoblast activity and calcium metabolism. Magnesium also promotes proper muscle function.
Vitamin D is a key regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism. Adequate vitamin D levels are essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of plasma calcium levels. Manganese is necessary for the activation of enzymes that help form proteoglycans, which are primarily responsible for the compressive strength of bones.
Osteoporosis, a condition of reduced bone mineral density that can increase risk of fractures, affects a large proportion of the elderly. Research demonstrates that higher peak bone mass decreases the risk of osteoporosis later in life. Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthy diet may help prevent bone loss/osteoporosis. As individuals achieve peak bone mass around age 30, it is critical for younger adults to maximize bone health during the bone growth period. However, even the elderly can benefit significantly from supplementation with dietary calcium.
Indications

  • Osteo-support
  • Periodontal health
  • Muscle function
Effer C
$34.48

Effer C contains vitamin C, specially buffered with calcium, magnesium and potassium and makes an effervescent drink when mixed with water or juice. Vitamin C has numerous biological functions. Foremost, it helps in the formation of connective tissue, as vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen. It is this role of vitamin C in the formation of connective tissue that makes it essential for the development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the cross-linking of collagen fibers making vitamin C essential for wound healing. Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants as laboratory studies show that vitamin C protects lipids in plasma and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative damage.
Indications

  • Connective tissue formation
  • Bone, cartilage, teeth and gum maintenance
  • Wound healing
  • Antioxidant support
Ester-C® Plus

Estro-Mend™
$70.48

Estro-Mend is a soy-free blend of herbs used in Herbal Medicine that helps ease nervous tension, while relieving pain associated with menstruation and symptoms associated with menopause.
A complex interaction of hormones regulates menstruation. Imbalances of hormones, including estrogen, can result in menstrual pain and premenstrual symptoms, which often include changes in mood, energy, attention, appetite, sleep, physical comfort (breast tenderness, bloating) and quality of life. Phytoestrogens, including black cohosh, mimic the functions of estrogens without proliferative actions, and help relieve menstrual pain and premenstrual symptoms.
Significantly less estrogen is produced in the period before menopause. Hormonal fluctuations during this time can result in common menopausal symptoms, including hot flushes and vaginal dryness. Phytoestrogens also support and minimize the changes and symptoms that are sometimes experienced during menopause. Studies have found that black cohosh helps relieve menopausal symptoms, such as hot flushes, excessive sweating, insomnia and vaginal atrophy. As menopause may result in sleep disruption, Estro-Mend also contains hops, which can relieve nervousness and aid sleep.
Indications

  • Premenstrual symptoms
  • Menopause
EstroQuench™
$75.89

EstroQuench is a Hormone Specific Formulation that helps to support healthy mood balance during menopause. It provides a combination of herbs, such as maca, that helps stimulate the health of androgen-producing glands to balance hormone levels for menopausal mood support. This formulation also includes damiana, which is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a nervine to help relieve nervousness and restlessness, as well as black pepper, which is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to improve digestion. A wide range of antioxidants from hesperidin, pomegranate and mangosteen are also offered to help protect against oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

Indications

  • Healthy mood balance during menopause
  • Damiana is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a nervine to help relieve nervousness and restlessness
  • Antioxidant support
Ferro-C™
$26.69

Ferro-C tablets provide 27 mg of carbonyl iron that is easily absorbed. It also contains key nutrients important for iron absorption while supporting the formation and proper function of red blood cells. In the human body, iron is present in all cells and has several vital functions mediated through red blood cells _ as a carrier of oxygen to the tissues from the lungs in the form of hemoglobin (Hb), as a facilitator of oxygen use and storage in the muscles as myoglobin, as a transport medium for electrons within the cells in the form of cytochromes, and as an integral part of enzyme reactions in various tissues. Low iron can interfere with these vital functions.
Both vitamin C and E provide antioxidants to protect against oxidative damage. The B vitamins act as coenzymes and are essential components in most major metabolic reactions, including energy metabolism.
Indications

  • Red blood cell formation and function
  • Bone, cartilage, teeth and gum maintenance
  • A factor in the maintenance of good health
Fib-Plex
$34.29

Fib-Plex is designed to provide a unique combination of all major classes of naturally occurring dietary fibres. Fib-Plex capsules supply a balance of soluble and insoluble, as well as fermentable and non-fermentable fibres. Fibre is plant material that is not digested as it passes through the gastrointestinal tract and is an important factor in the maintenance of overall health. Soluble dietary fibre absorbs water in the digestive tract forming a gel-like substance and is fermented in the colon to varying degrees. This results in lower colonic pH and the production of short chain fatty acids, important factors for the intestinal microflora and the health of the mucosal cells. Insoluble fibre helps movement in the gastrointestinal by adding bulk to stools. Many insoluble and soluble fibres bind dietary cholesterol and bile acids in the intestine.
Glucomannan is a partially fermentable, soluble fibre extracted from konjac root. Carrot and celery powders provide a rich array of soluble and insoluble dietary fibres, including cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin and lignin. Sodium alginate is a soluble partially fermentable fibre derived from seaweed.
Indications

  • Source of fibre for the maintenance of good health
Glucoplex™
$47.78

Glucoplex provides support for glucose metabolism as well as antioxidant defence. Each capsule contains a complementary blend of thiamine, biotin, chromium, alpha-lipoid acid, n-acetyl-l-cysteine, and Ayurvedic botanical gymnema sylvestre.
Glycation is the non-enzymatic attachment of sugars to major molecules in the body, including proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. Glycation reactions generate advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) and glycotoxin intermediates, which cause abnormal and destructive functioning of these molecules. AGEs can be created endogenously, often as a consequence of excessive blood glucose levels.
Maintenance of normal blood carbohydrate levels is fundamental to preventing AGE formation. Chromium is an integral component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), a naturally occurring compound of chromium, nicotinic acid, and amino acids that is essential for proper glucose metabolism. Adequate chromium nutrition is essential for the formation of GTF and subsequent healthy glucose metabolism.
Biotin and thiamin serve as cofactors in carbohydrate metabolism. Biotin induces glucokinase, an enzyme that encourages cells to retain glucose for energy production rather than releasing it into the bloodstream. Thiamin pyrophosphate, a derivative of thiamin, is a key component the pentose phosphate pathway and links glycolysis to the Krebs cycle.
Oxidative stress is closely related to AGE production and is a known contributing factor to many of the same health concerns associated with AGEs. N-acetyl-l-cysteine is a potent antioxidant and serves as an intracellular precursor of glutathione. Similarly, alpha-lipoic acid can regenerate glutathione, and is soluble in both water and lipids, allowing it to neutralize free radicals nearly everywhere in the body.
Indications

  • Glucose metabolism support
  • Antioxidant support
  • Energy production
Hydrolyzed Collagen Plus
$53.86

Hydrolyzed Collagen Plus is a unique formulation of collagen peptides with hyaluronic acid (HA) and co-factors for skin and joint health. It supports the appearance of healthy skin by promoting collagen production, skin elasticity and hydration.

The formulation offers collagen in its hydrolyzed (peptide) form, which is easily absorbed in the intestinal tract and provides essential and non-essential amino acids. Similarly, it uses low molecular weight HA, which has shown to be better absorbed by the intestinal tract than high molecular weight HA.

Vitamin C is included to help in connective tissue formation, while copper and zinc are provided in an ideal ratio to help link collagen threads together. Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant in the body and has been shown in research to reduce the harmful effects of sun damage in epidermal skin cells.

In addition to skin health, hydrolyzed collagen may support healthy joint function, as collagen is a vital part of the joint and bone matrix. Hydrolyzed collagen may stimulate the joint matrix cells to synthesize collagen, thereby helping to maintain the structure of the joint and reducing pain associated with osteoarthritis.

 

INDICATIONS

  • Skin health
  • Osteoarthritis joint pain relief
Immunity
$66.96

Immunity provides powerful immune-supportive ingredients, such as the well-tolerated and absorbed Ester-C®, vitamin D3, zinc, and a unique blend of phytonutrients. This formula is to be taken at the very first sign of a cold; it may also be taken preventatively.
Immune cells are necessary to activate vitamin D, which is an important mechanism for regulating maturation and promoting immune responses in cells. Therefore, immunity may be compromised under conditions of vitamin D insufficiency.
Zinc directly affects immune function and even a mild zinc deficiency suppresses immunity. Zinc stimulates phagocytosis, activates T-cell function and influences Th1 cytokines, which defend against intracellular pathogens.
The major role of vitamin C is to protect immune cells against free radical damage. Vitamin C concentrations in the plasma and leukocytes rapidly decline during acute illness and stress. Ester-C® is a unique, patented form of vitamin C that is non-acidic and should be well-tolerated by those sensitive to the acidic nature of ascorbic acid.
Andrographis, a shrub that is sometimes called –Indian Echinacea,” helps reduce the symptoms of the common cold and upper respiratory tract infections. Used since ancient times in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astragalus is mostly known for its immune-stimulating properties and antioxidant activity.
Indications

  • Useful for reducing symptoms of the common cold and maintaining a healthy immune system.
Instestamine®
$63.45

Intestamine® provides an exclusive blend of the amino acids glutamine and glucosamine along with fructooligiosaccharides and fibre. The source of fibre, Acacia fibre, is derived from Acacia senegal, a thorny tree native to Africa and India. Fibre has numerous beneficial effects on the body. Acacia fibre is a soluble, non-bulking agent which can be fermented by the microflora to acetic, propionic and butyric short-chain fatty acids. These short-chain fatty acids may act as an energy source to the existing microbiotia present in the small intestine. Unlike Acacia fibre, NutraFlora® FOS has the ability to pass through the small intestine into the colon without being digested or altered in any way.
Indications

  • Source of fibre
Joint Tendon Ligament I
$72.00

Joint Tendon Ligament I is formulated with specific ingredients, including boswellia, to help relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Apr_sFlex® is a proprietary Boswellia serrata extract that provides a standardized bioavailable amount of Acetyl-11-keto-b-boswellic acid (AKBA). It targets mediators of joint comfort and flexibility, such as TNF-alpha and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX). 5-LOX is a member of the lipoxygenase family of enzymes and excess levels of this enzyme sets in motion responses that contribute to the pain and inflammation of osteoporosis. Apr_sFlex® has also been shown to inhibit MMP-3 (matrix metalloproteinase-3) enzyme activity, therefore helping to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Other Boswellia serrata extracts can be poorly absorbed, however AprsFlex® has been shown to absorb into the blood 52% more than other boswellia extracts.
Cynatine® FLX is a natural bioactive keratin extracted from premium quality pure New Zealand wool using a unique patented process. Keratin is a protein found throughout the body and has important structural roles in cells and tissue. This intriguing protein also has one of the highest proportions of the amino acid cysteine, a natural reservoir of sulphur.
Joint Tendon Ligament I can be taken to help relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis in conjunction with Joint Tendon Ligament II to help in the development and maintenance of cartilage and bone.
Indications

  • Joint pain
  • Bone health
Joint Tendon Ligament II
$70.86

Joint Tendon Ligament II is a unique formula containing several vitamins and antioxidants. The formula was specifically designed to help develop and maintain bone and cartilage.
Vitamin K plays a crucial role in building and maintaining bone health. It is needed to activate osteocalcin, a protein secreted by osteoblasts that regulates bone mineral maturation. Vitamin K2 (as MK-7) is more bioactive and effective than vitamin K1 and other menaquinones. Vitamin D also has a dramatic effect on bone formation as it promotes calcium absorption and the production of bone matrix proteins.
In vitro research has shown that vitamin C enhances the expression of type I collagen and fibronectin, two crucial components of connective tissue. Vitamin C is also an important water-soluble antioxidant.
The polyphenols contained in green tea, specifically the catechins, appear to provide the primary health promoting benefits associated with green tea consumption. Catechins, most notably epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), act as critical antioxidants throughout the body. pTeroPure pterostilbene (a nature-identical form of a stilbene found in berries) is considered a methylated form of resveratrol. Pterostilbene has greater lipophilicity, a longer half-life and a higher potential for cellular uptake than resveratrol.

Magnesium Citrate
$26.98

Magnesium is a mineral with a fundamentally important physiological function in the body. However, typical diets in several industrialized countries often provide less than adequate amounts of magnesium. Supplementation with bioavailable magnesium citrate can help bridge the gap between dietary intake and optimal requirement.
Magnesium plays an essential role in a wide range of fundamental cellular reactions. More than 300 enzymes require magnesium as a cofactor. Complexed with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body, magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes, including nutrient metabolism. Magnesium is also involved in maintaining normal electrolyte balance and proper muscle function, including the heart muscle.
Two thirds of the body’s magnesium content is located in the skeleton. Recent animal studies show that magnesium supplementation supports bone formation and increases its dynamic strength, while also balancing normal bone resorption processes.
Indications

  • Muscle function
  • Energy and nutrient metabolism
  • Electrolyte balance
  • Bone and teeth maintenance
Magnesium Taurate 400
$34.57

Melatonin 3 mg
$26.79

Melatonin sublingual tablets each contain 3 mg of high-purity melatonin. Purity and potency of each batch of Melatonin tablets are verified by an independent, certified analytical laboratory.
Melatonin is a hormone synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan by the pineal gland in the brain. The perception of daylight in the eyes is a signal for the pineal gland to inhibit melatonin synthesis and release. At night or in a dark environment, the body’s melatonin production rises, which is thought to be responsible for promoting sleep. Therefore, most of the research on melatonin has focused on its role in maintaining normal sleep/wake rhythms. Research has shown that melatonin supplementation helps reset the body’s sleep-wake cycle, an aspect of circadian rhythm. It helps reduce the time it takes to fall asleep (sleep onset latency) in people with delayed sleep phase disorder, who often experience difficulty falling asleep at desired or conventional times. Melatonin also increases the total sleep time in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule, including shift-work and jet lag, and helps to relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Nocturnal melatonin production is highest in children and begins to decline from adolescence until it is virtually absent in the elderly. This sublingual tablet will rapidly dissolve when placed under the tongue and the bisect tablet allows for easy dosing modifications.
Indications

  • Delayed sleep phase disorder
  • Shift-work
  • Jet lag
Melatonin PR 3 mg Prolonged-Release
$27.26

Melatonin PR provides all of the benefits of Melatonin in a convenient prolonged-release tablet.

Methyl B12 Plus
$27.36

Methyl B12 Plus provides methylcobalamin and calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate from Metafolin® in a great-tasting lozenge that rapidly dissolves in the mouth. Methylcobalamin and L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate are the predominant forms of vitamin B12 and folate, respectively, commonly found in cells, and do not require additional conversion in the body. As co-enzymes, these B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of macronutrients. The B vitamins are also important for blood cell production and proper methylation. Folate serves as a methyl donor, while methylcobalamin acts as a coenzyme in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Research suggests that methylcobalamin also helps in the normal function of the immune system. Methyl B12 Plus lozenges are sweetened naturally with xylitol and flavoured with natural cherry, berry and vanilla.
Indications

  • Energy metabolism
  • Red blood cell formation
  • Immune function
Neuro Comfort
$50.34

Neuro Comfort is a formula designed by neurological specialists based on ingredient research to reduce the frequency of migraine headaches when taken as a prophylactic. Specific nutrients included in this unique formula, such coenzyme Q10, magnesium and B vitamins, are associated with functioning of neurological pathways.
Migraine headaches can often be associated with discomfort, nausea, emesis, photophobia and visual sensory changes, and are linked to a number of genes, including those involved in regulating the vascular system. Most simply, migraine headaches are thought to be associated with mitochondrial dysfunction in cells. The mitochondrion is the powerhouse of all cells, as it is the location of energy production in the body. Regular supplementation with CoQ10, an electron carrier, as a prophylactic is believed to restore mitochondria dysfunction, leading to a reduction in migraine frequency. Magnesium and riboflavin play an important role in this process, as these nutrients are required for the proper function of ATP-synthase and as a source of cofactors in the electron transport chain, respectively.
Indications

  • Helps to reduce the frequency of migraine headaches when taken as a prophylactic
  • Tissue formation
  • Muscle function
Opti-EPA™
$38.56

Opti-EPA is a very high potency marine lipid concentrate that provides twice the amount of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA per softgel than other fatty acid supplements. Opti-EPA is strictly screened for toxic metals and chemicals, completely free of cholesterol, and carefully processed and handled to avoid oxidation.
One landmark study, the GISSI-Prevenzione Trial, showed supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids (in a ratio of DHA to EPA of approximately 2:1) significantly maintained cardiovascular function in adults. The exact reasons for this benefit may be related to the ability of fish oil to lower LDL and triglycerides, inhibit excessive platelet aggregation and reduce fibrinogen levels. Omega-3 fatty acids also support the body’s normal inflammatory processes and cardiac health. Studies indicate that EPA and DHA act as precursors for the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3, and decrease the formation of pro-inflammatory prostaglandin E2 and thromboxane A2. Scientists have also suggested that omega-3 fatty acids can have a direct cardiac effect – they may be able to modify sodium channels by binding to channel proteins, which could support healthy heart rhythms.
Brain function is also positively affected by omega-3 supplementation. DHA has been known to affect the central nervous system and may be involved in synaptic signal transduction. Adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout adulthood for ongoing optimal function. Omega-3 fatty acids are also essential to the normal brain development of the newborn, especially during the last three months of pregnancy when brain development increases threefold.
Indications

  • Cardiovascular health and triglyceride support
  • Cognitive/neurological support
Opti-EPA™ Enteric Coated
$42.93

Opti-EPA Enteric-Coated softgels supply significant amounts of essential omega-3 fatty acids, derived from marine lipid concentrate. Processed by molecular distillation, each softgel provides 330 mg of EPA and 170 mg of DHA. Opti-EPA is enteric-coated, significantly reducing the –fishy” taste sometimes associated with marine lipid supplements.
Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated and polyunsaturated omega-6 acids, while providing low levels of omega-3 fatty acids. A healthy balance of dietary omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids appears necessary for the maintenance of good health. Unlike dietary omega-6 fatty acids, EPA and DHA serve as precursors for the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3, and decrease the formation of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
In addition to decreasing arthritic symptoms, the ability of fish oil to support the body’s normal inflammatory processes plays an important role in cardiovascular health. Omega-3 fatty acids also promote cardiovascular function by lowering LDL and triglycerides, inhibiting excessive platelet aggregation, reducing fibrinogen levels and supporting healthy heart rhythms.
Brain function is also positively affected by omega-3 supplementation. As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout adulthood for ongoing optimal function. Omega-3 fatty acids are also essential to the normal brain development of the newborn, especially during the last three months of pregnancy when brain development increases threefold.
Indications

  • Cardiovascular health and triglyceride support
  • Cognitive/neurological support

TMC
$65.16

Formulated by Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed, a nationally-recognized naturopath specializing in metabolic and neuro-endocrine health

TMC combines LOWAT®, featuring clinically studied extracts of the Piper betle leaf and Dolichos biflorus seed, with acetyl-L-carnitine. It provides antioxidants that help protect cells against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

Body cells and tissues are threatened continuously by damage caused by toxic free radicals and reactive oxygen species (e.g., peroxides), which are produced during normal oxygen metabolism, by other chemical reactions, and by toxic agents in the environment. Free radicals, once formed, are capable of disrupting metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs, additional free radicals are produced, which in turn can result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues.

LOWAT® is a patent-pending ingredient that consists of Piper betle leaf and Dolichos biflorus seed extract, which have been traditionally used in Indian culture. LOWAT has been evaluated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study and was reported to be well-tolerated.

Acetyl-L-carnitine is a naturally occurring metabolite of L-carnitine, and both are present in the diet, particularly in foods of animal origin. Acetyl-L-carnitine can act as an antioxidant, scavenging harmful superoxide radicals. Since superoxide can damage membrane lipids, this may explain acetyl-L-carnitine’s membrane protective properties.

INDICATIONS

  • Antioxidant support
TQ for Women (Formerly Testo-Quench™ for Women)
$70.48

TQ for Women is a combination of herbal extracts, including chasteberry, specifically formulated to help relieve premenstrual and menopausal symptoms.
Hormones normally fluctuate during a woman’s menstrual cycle. Research shows that premenstrual symptoms are associated with hormone imbalances in the second half of the cycle, including high estrogen and prolactin levels, as well as low progesterone levels.
Menopause occurs in women in their late 40s or early 50s when fertility and menstruation are ending. Women may experience a drop in estrogen levels that can lead to undesirable symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, changes in sleep, mood swings or other symptoms.
Chasteberry contains active constituents that play a role in hormone activity, including support for normal prolactin, estrogen and progesterone levels. It has also been found to decrease the activity of androgens, such as testosterone. Through these actions, chasteberry helps normalize hormones and stabilize menstrual cycle irregularities. Studies have shown that chasteberry extract supplementation also helps mediate premenstrual symptoms, including mood, headache, bloating, and breast fullness. Chasteberry extract has also been shown to help relieve symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes.
Indications

  • Premenstrual symptoms
  • Menopausal symptoms
Ultra A-O (Formerly Ultra Anti-Oxidant)
$69.91

Ultra A-O is a potent antioxidant supplement that includes vitamins and other nutrients that effectively participate in our body’s antioxidant defence systems. This is beneficial as the uncontrolled production of free radicals is thought to be a major contributing factor to many degenerative pathologies.
Vitamin E is recognized as the body’s most valuable fat soluble antioxidant. It prevents the oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by inactivating free radicals, thus stabilizing and protecting cell membranes.
Vitamin C is a potent water-soluble antioxidant nutrient that is also essential for bone metabolism and immune function. When neutralizing free radicals inactivates vitamin E, vitamin C regenerates it back to full activity.
Glutathione is a naturally occurring tripeptide and a major component of two anti-free radical enzymes _ glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. As such, glutathione scavenges toxic free radicals and inhibits peroxidation thereby slowing down free-radical catalyzed chain reactions. Glutathione can also reactivate (reduce) oxidized vitamin C and is dependent on selenium and B vitamins for its effectiveness. Similarly, zinc maintains the activity of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase.
N-acety-L-Cysteine is a precursor for the sulfur amino acid cysteine, which is used by cells to synthesize glutathione. Supplementation with N-acety-L-Cysteine is recognized as a safe and highly effective method of increasing intracellular glutathione stores.

Ultra MFP Forte (Formerly Anti MFP)
$67.25

Ultra MFP Forte (Formerly Anti MFP) is a unique formula containing goldenseal, a plant with numerous health benefits observed in traditional uses of Herbal Medicine. Goldenseal is a plant native to North America, growing in wooded areas, in rich fertile soil protected from harsh conditions. Although this herb has many uses, most commonly goldenseal is used in conditions relating to the digestive tract. Goldenseal has been used for hundreds of years in Herbal Medicine to help alleviate infectious and inflammatory conditions of the digestive tract such as gastritis and digestive disturbances such as dyspepsia.
Additionally, goldenseal has been used as a bitter to aid digestion and as a mild laxative. The beneficial effects of goldenseal are attributed to alkaloids isolated from the plant compound. One of those alkaloids, berberine, is added as part of the formulation for Ultra MFP Forte, acting as a complimentary ingredient to goldenseal.
Ultra MFP Forte contains grapefruit and olive leaf extract, which are a source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are critical for the maintenance of good health as they are able to scavenge free radicals in the body, decreasing the potential damaging effects to things like cellular membranes and DNA.
Black walnut and burdock, ingredients in Ultra MFP Forte are herbs traditionally used in Herbal Medicine.

Ultrazyme™
$32.20

Ultrazyme was specifically formulated with bile and active digestive enzymes that assist in fat, protein and carbohydrate digestion in the stomach and small intestine. Although fat digestion starts in the mouth with salivary lipase, most triglycerides are digested by pancreatic lipase. Pancreatic lipase cleaves triglycerides into monoglycerides and free fatty acids, which are efficiently absorbed in the upper small intestine. Similarly, pancreatic amylase is the major carbohydrate-digesting enzyme. It breaks down starches into maltose and maltotriose, which are further hydrolyzed into glucose by the disaccharidases of the mucosal cells, and then absorbed. Protein digestion is initiated in the stomach by pepsin and hydrochloric acid, which denature and divide large proteins into smaller polypeptides. The pancreatic proteases, trypsin and chymotrypsin, break down these polypeptides into free amino acids, and di- or tri-peptides, which are directly absorbed by the intestinal mucosa. Bromelain is also included to assist in the breakdown of macromolecule protein complexes. This reduces the chance that these complexes will leave the stomach untouched or in large fractions, and helps in their absorption.

Indications

  • Digestive aid
  • Digestive enzyme
Uro-Pro™ (formerly U-Pro®)
$63.16

Vita-Kids™ Immune
$39.99

Vita-Kids Immune provides important immune supportive nutrients for children in a great-tasting, natural grape-flavoured liquid.
Free radicals are unstable compounds formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental sources such as pollution and cigarette smoke. Free radicals are necessary for energy metabolism and immune function, but when an excessive number of free radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells, especially their membrane lipids and proteins. This, in turn, is thought to affect a number of body processes, including optimal functioning of the immune system. Elderberry and blueberry extracts provide anthocyanins, important antioxidants that protect healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage.
Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of beta-carotene for normal immune function. The immune benefits of beta-carotene are due to its role as a precursor to vitamin A, which stimulates the production of immune cells. Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major metabolic pathways. Numerous studies also support the fundamental role of zinc in promoting normal immune responses in humans. Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide in order to respond to daily challenges, and they depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc to promote their development. Healthy immune function can also be maintained by supporting a well balanced production of cytokines. However, low levels of zinc lead to decreased immune responses, including the production of fewer cytokines that target intracellular bacteria.
Indications

  • Children’s Health
  • Immune Support
Vitamin D 1000 IU
$21.28

Vitamin D 1000 IU is an excellent source of vitamin D. Adequate vitamin D intake is important for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintaining proper calcium plasma levels. Thus, vitamin D has a critical role in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. Studies have shown that supplementation with high doses of vitamin D maximizes bone health in adults and may decrease the risk of fractures in the elderly.
One of the main sources of vitamin D is from exposing skin to sunlight. However, this process can be limited by skin colour, sunscreen use, season and geographic location. People living close to the equator can easily produce vitamin D throughout the year, while those living farther away have to rely on foods and supplements for adequate vitamin D status. As few foods naturally contain high levels of vitamin D, supplementation is a great alternative to increase vitamin D levels.
Indications

  • Bone and teeth maintenance
  • Calcium and phosphorus absorption
Vitamin K2
$36.09

Vitamin K2 supplies a significant amount of biologically active vitamin K in the form of menaquinone-7 (MK-7). Beyond blood clotting, the role of vitamin K in osteoporosis is related to calcium utilization. Scientific studies have revealed that vitamin K is required for the carboxylation of osteocalcin, a protein secreted by osteoblasts that regulates calcification and bone mineral maturation. Thus, vitamin K plays a crucial role in building and maintaining strong bones.
Vitamin K2 (as MK-7) is more bioactive and has proven more effective than vitamin K1 and other menaquinones. MK-7 showed eight times the half-life of vitamin K1 in a 24-hour serum concentration. Therefore, MK-7 can be administered in low dosages only once a day, typically 1/1000 of a MK-4 dose. Furthermore, the study showed better utilization and improved osteocalcin carboxylation for MK-7 after 6 weeks. Numerous studies reveal long-chain menaquinones, such as MK-7, are more effective in supporting arterial health than vitamin K1 menaquinones.
Douglas Labs’ Vitamin K2 (as MK-7) is derived from geraniol and farnesol. Geraniol is the primary part of rose, palmarosa and citronella oils. Farnesol is also present in many essential oils such as citronella, lemon grass, rose and musk. This natural form of MK-7 has been extensively tested for molecular identity and bioequivalence when compared to MK-7 from fermented soybeans (natto). It is the all-trans form, thus providing a significantly higher purity of the only biologically active form. This product is soy free.
Indications

  • Bone health support
Zinc Lozenges
$23.27

Zinc Lozenges supply bioavailable zinc, sweetened with sorbitol and flavoured with natural orange extracts. Each tablet contains 10 mg of elemental zinc in the form of zinc citrate.
Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major metabolic pathways and has important functions in maintaining immune function, healthy skin, and tissue formation. Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc in normal immune response in humans. Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide in order to respond to daily challenges. Like all rapidly dividing cells, immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc. Similarly, zinc is required to maintain healthy skin as a component of matrix metalloproteinases. These enzymes break down matrix proteins, including collagen and elastin, which helps in skin remodelling and repair.
Indications

  • Immune function

• Delicious natural orange flavour

Recent research indicates that in diets high in monounsaturated fatty acids, a combination of plant sterols and fish oils better support cardiovascular health than fish oils alone.1 EPA and DHA decrease the breakdown of triglycerides in fat cells, while increasing their breakdown in the heart and skeletal muscle.2 Fish oils cause adipose tissue to take up these fatty acids, and decrease their delivery to the liver.2 This prevents their incorporation into very low density lipoproteins (VLDL molecules which transport lipids from the liver to other parts of the body), and leads to decreased VLDL production.2 β-oxidation of fatty acids in the liver, fat, heart and skeletal muscle is also increased.2 This converts fatty acids into acetyl-CoA for energy production in the Krebs cycle and decreases the amount of fatty acids available for the synthesis of triglycerides.2 Genes that regulate triglyceride synthesis, storage, and β-oxidation are also affected by plant sterols.2,3 In randomized, placebo controlled trials, daily supplementation with 1.3-1.4 g of EPA and DHA in combination with plant sterols for 3-4 weeks significantly lowered serum triglycerides by approximately 14-25% in hyperlipidemic adults.4,5

• Provides 300 mcg of biotin per dose
• Includes 5 IU of vitamin E per dose

ST-TN Capsules is a blend of biotin and vitamin E that helps to support optimal health. Biotin is necessary for the activity of five carboxylases which are involved in macronutrient metabolism.1 Biotin supports: 1) fatty acid synthesis in the liver and adipose tissue; 2) fatty acid oxidation; 3) break down amino acids, cholesterol and odd chain fatty acids; 4) leucine metabolism; 5) glucose production in the kidney and liver, glucose-induced insulin release, and fatty acid synthesis in adipocytes.1,2 Cells that are deficient in biotin are also more susceptible to damage caused by oxidative stress.2 Vitamin E is the most significant membrane antioxidant, and helps maintain the structure of nearly all cell membranes.3 It is a potent free radical scavenger that helps to prevent oxidative DNA damage.3 As vitamin E can compete for free radicals faster than polyunsaturated fatty acids in cell membranes, small levels of vitamin E offer a large amount of antioxidant protection.3 The stable vitamin E radical produced is virtually unreactive, and can be recycled back to its original form, demonstrating its essential role in antioxidant defence.3

• Supports cognitive health and brain function
• Provides 1080 mg of EPA and 720 mg DHA per daily dose

SEP EFA is a blend of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA that helps support cardiovascular health. Research indicates that EPA and DHA decrease triglycerides by altering gene expression in the liver; they lower fat production by increasing fatty acid metabolism through PPARα stimulation.1,2 This decrease in triglycerides leads to a reduction in very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol production, molecules that transport lipids throughout the body.2,3 In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving 60 hyperlipidemic adults, 3 weeks of daily supplementation with 1.4 g total of EPA and DHA significantly lowered serum triglycerides by approximately 20% when compared to baseline values.4 DHA is also the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain: supplementation with fish oils has been associated with the maintenance of neuron function in the hippocampus, a region of the brain associated with memory.5 In 36 elderly adults with mild cognitive impairment, daily supplementation with 1.75 g of DHA and EPA for 12 months led to significant increases in short-term and working memory.6
