Betaine Anhydrous is used primarily for people who need to lower abnormally high homocysteine levels in their blood. Homocysteine is a potentially toxic substance that results from meat digestion. As a nutritional aide, betaine anhydrous has been shown to be lipotropic - i.e. fat loss causing - by promoting the oxidization of lipids.

L-Arginine L-Pyroglutamate (APG)

L-Arginine L-Pyroglutamate was on the spotlight back in 1981 when Italian researcher A. Isidori, M.D., and his colleagues of the University of Rome found out that a combination of L-Lysine and L-Arginine L-Pyroglutamate, when given orally to a group of 15 male volunteers between 15 and 20 years old, was at least 10 times more effective at increasing blood levels of human growth hormone than taking only the amino acid L-Arginine by itself (an average net HGH yield increase of more than 700%).

Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola rosea may be effective for improving mood and alleviating depression. Pilot studies on human subjects showed that it improves physical and mental performance, and may reduce fatigue. Rhodiola rosea's effects potentially are related to optimizing serotonin and dopamine levels due to monoamine oxidase inhibition.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT)

L-tyrosine supplements have been used as a therapeutic supplement for those with phenylketonuria, depression, Parkinson's disease, and those who want to improve their memory. Tyrosine supplementation may be used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, because tyrosine can make l-dopa which is used directly to treat Parkinson's disease. Several studies have also indicated that L-Tyrosine benefits people with Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, and dementia. Tyrosine and tryptophan have been used successfully in the treatment of cocaine abuse.

Grape Seed Extract 95%

Healthy adults, as well as those that are sick, may benefit from supplementing with grape seed due to its ability to help fight free radicals. Regardless of gender, age, and medical condition, free radicals are a danger to everybody's body and holding them off is never a bad idea.

L-Carnitine

Palatinose (Isomaltulose)

With its slow but complete absorption and hydrolysis, Palatinose (Isomaltulose) provides a constant and extended stream of energy out of its caloric value of 4kcal/g for muscles and brain. This new source of energy lasts over a longer period of time compared to quickly absorbed carbohydrates.

DL - Methionine

DL Methionine is an amino acid that is beneficial in reducing the toxicity of radiation. It has helped speed up the healing of wounds after a surgical operation and also helps regulate the availability of folic acid, which is necessary during pregnancy.

Glycine

Recent research and clinical trials have shown that the amino acid Glycine is of paramount importance for central nervous system function as it can help inhibit the neurotransmitters that cause seizure activity, hyperactivity, and manic (bipolar) depression. When the need arises for another neurotransmitter beneficial in the management of schizophrenia, Glycine can also be changed to serine. In one trial, schizophrenic patients, who were non-responsive to conventional treatments and medications, used glycine in conjunction with their ongoing antipsychotic prescriptions and found that it significantly reduced their symptoms. Studies have shown that glycine is also beneficial in improving memory retrieval loss in people suffering from a wide array of sleep-depriving conditions, including schizophrenia, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, jet lag, and overwork. (Please take a look at the Amino Acids page for further sources of information.)

Choline Bitartrate

Studies show that Choline Bitartrate is a memory enhancer that helps in analytical reasoning and creativity, maintains normal function of cell activity, breaks down fats, can increase physical endurance, promotes the production of acetylcholine, amino acids and proteins, improves cognitive function and proven to support the nervous system activity. It has been used experimentally to help improve neuromuscular function in Alzheimer's disease. It also improves the effectiveness of lithium in the treatment of manic depression.

D-Calcium Pantothenate (Vit B5)

Vitamin B5 is of paramount importance for human growth, reproduction and many normal bodily functions. Vitamin B5 helps breakdown nutrients, synthesize antibodies, and manufacture vitamin D. It also enhances the healing of wounds by significantly lessening the time required for the entire healing process.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Many professionals in health practice highly recommend A.L.A. for the treatment and prevention of diseases developed with age, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. A.L.A. may have synergistic effects on some medications, so if you have diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, or Alzheimer's disease you should talk to your doctor or health practice professional before taking A.L.A.

Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Powdered Extract (PE) 24/6

Ginkgo may lend a hand in supporting memory and brain function. Anyone may benefit from ginkgo's wonderful blood circulating properties. As ginkgo is a brain enhancer, clearly it can positively affect those who suffer from Alzheimer's disease or cerebrovascular insufficiency. It can also help treat diabetes, depression, and atherosclerosis. Sexually, ginkgo has been shown to be an effective supplement for treating infertility in males or impotence. Ginkgo biloba can be beneficial to anyone in improving brain function by preventing and treating conditions of cerebral insufficiency caused by a decreased blood flow to the brain. Ginkgo biloba has some incredible medical properties because as numerous studies have confirmed, it can improve brain and memory function by enhancing oxygenation, protect the heart and restore blood circulation, help preserve general vitality and health, fight common allergic reactions, and correct vision and hearing problems.

Inositol

Inositol has been used as a nutritional supplement in the treatment of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PMS and fibroid tumors. It has also been shown to promote restful sleep if taken immediately before bed. Inositol may also promote liver health and help to prevent hardening of the arteries. Among other things, it has been demonstrated as well to promote healthy skin and hair, and helps to lower cholesterol levels, promotes healthy female hormones and aid in the prevention of eczema. (Please take a look at the Amino Acids page for further sources of information.

Stevia Extract 90%

Studies have also indicated that Stevia tends to lower elevated blood pressure but does not seem to affect normal blood pressure. It also inhibits the growth and reproduction of some bacteria and other infectious organisms, including the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease. This may help explain why users of Stevia enhanced products report a lower incidence of colds and flu and why it has such exceptional qualities when used as a mouthwash or added to toothpaste. Many people report significant improvement in oral health after adding Stevia concentrate to their toothpaste and using it, diluted in water, as a daily mouthwash.

Whole Psyllium Husks

The seeds from the plant Plantago Ovata and Plantago Psyllium have long been used in herbal and traditional medicines. Known more commonly as Psyllium Seed Husks, Or Psyllium Husks, the seed husks from this plant are great source of fiber and most widely used to create mucilage to aid colon health as a way to "bulk up" the bodies waste and work as a sponge to clear out the colon walls.

L-Glutamine

Glutamine deficiency is common in today's busy lifestyle, making its supplementation increasingly popular. Supplemental L-glutamine is used therapeutically for arthritis, autoimmune diseases, developmental disabilities, and for tissue damage from cancer radiation treatments. Glutamine has also been shown to help manage alcoholism, speed up the healing and recovery from ulcers, and alleviate fatigue, depression, and impotence. It has also been reported successful in treating schizophrenia and senility. (Please take a look at the Amino Acids page for further sources of information.

Non Hydrolysed Chicken Collagen

For anyone suffering from progressive cartilage damage (which ultimately means anyone suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or long term osteoarthritis), reprogramming the immune system with undenatured type II chicken collagen as found in UC-II is an essential component of his or her joint repair regimen. (Please take a look here for further sources of information.

Chondroitin Sulphate

Because chondroitin is a natural component of cartilage, using chondroitin supplements can improve the body's ability to synthesize cartilage more quickly and efficiently, especially when taken in conjunction with glucosamine sulphate, another substance needed to form cartilage in the body. Chondroitin sulphate also inhibits the action of enzymes that break down cartilage and draws moisture to cartilage tissue so that it stays flexible.

L-Tryptophan

Tryptophan may enhance relaxation and sleep, relieve minor premenstrual symptoms, soothe nerves and anxiety, and reduce carbohydrate cravings. If you have insomnia, tryptophan may be beneficial as well. Several research studies have demonstrated L-tryptophan to be helpful in the treatment of chronic insomnia at doses of between one to four grams before bedtime. Additionally, L-tryptophan is not associated with side effects that are common with prescription drugs, nor does it cause drowsiness or difficulty in getting up the next day. This makes L-tryptophan a viable and attractive option to conventional drug therapies for the treatment of chronic insomnia.

Tribulus Terrestris

Tribulus indirectly increases testosterone levels by raising blood levels of another hormone, LH or luteinizing hormone, a hormone produced by the pituitary gland which plays a critical role in regulating natural testosterone production. Terrestris increases production of luteinizing hormone (LH), a hormone produced naturally in the body that has a direct effect on testosterone levels and sex drive. Laboratory studies reported that Tribulus terrestris increased sexual activity as well as sperm count and motility in animals.
