Adren-Plus 300 is a synergistic blend of vitamins, minerals and glandulars designed to support normal adrenal health and stress management.
As co-enzymes, the B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. B vitamins are also important for blood cells, hormones, and nervous system function. As water-soluble substances, B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts. Thiamin and riboflavin are all essential coenzymes in energy production. Thiamin is converted quickly into thiamin pyrophosphate, which is required for glycolytic and Krebs cycle reactions. Thiamin also appears to be related to nerve impulse transmission. Riboflavin is a component of the coenzymes FAD and FMN, which are intermediates in many redox reactions, including energy production and cellular respiration reactions. Vitamin B-6 is a coenzyme in amino acid metabolism. It is necessary for the metabolism of homocysteine and the conversion of tryptophan into niacin. Vitamin B-6 dependent enzymes are also needed for the biosynthesis of many neurotransmitters, including serotonin, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Pantothenic acid is a component of coenzyme A and of phosphopantetheine, and is therefore essential for Krebs cycle operation. Vitamin A (retinol) is a fat-soluble vitamin essential for vision, growth, reproduction, cell division, and the integrity of the immune system. Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major metabolic pathways. General signs of human zinc deficiency indicate that zinc has important functions in maintaining immune function, reproduction, healthy skin, and growth. Adrenal and spleen glandulars are added to for their supportive roles in stress management and immune health. Contains 120 Capsules
Testo-Gain™ is a synergistic combination of phytoandrogens, androgenic adaptogens and other herbs designed to help promote optimal testosterone function by maintaining the health of testosterone producing glands and by supporting the healthy functions of testosterone responsive tissues in men and women.
Androgenic adaptogens, which support the proper testosterone producing function of the gonads in both genders, include Tribulus terrestris as well as Withania somnifera, which maintains healthy gonadotrophic hormone production. Phytoandrogens support the function of testosterone and may mimic the anabolic and libido enhancing functions of testosterone. The anabolic function of testosterone is supported with Eleutherococcus senticosus, Lepidium meyenii and Mucuna pruriens. While all phytoandrogens can support healthy sexual function, Epimedium and Lepidium meyenii, maintain control over the antiandrogenic affects of glucocorticoids and maintain L-arginine-nitric oxide activity, respectively. The L-dopa found in Mucana may maintain optimal sex drive and sexual impulses in humans by supporting dopaminergic functions. This formulation offers hormone-free support of testosterone function for both men and women. Contains 90 Capsules
Ultra Indinol Plus
Ultra Indinol Plus supplies significant amounts of indole-3-carbinol(I3C) and diindolylmethane(DIM) in a proprietary blend of cruciferous vegetables.
Indole-3-carbinol is a member of the class of sulfur-containing chemicals called glucosinolates. It is found in high amounts in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. Indole-3-carbinol acts as an antioxidant, can stimulate natural detoxification enzymes and supports normal hormone metabolism. In the body, Indole 3-carbinol can be broken down into diindolylmethane(DIM), another indole compound that also has similar health benefits.
Cruciferous vegetables, broccoli and cauliflower, offer protective sulforophane compounds known for their ability to induce protective detoxifying enzymes. Contains 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Mediterranean Forte™ is a novel, food-based supplement that provides a unique mixture of nutrients based on the Mediterranean diet. These liquid filled two piece capsules are made from fish based gelatin, making this product suitable for those wishing to avoid bovine products.
The Mediterranean diet is typically defined as a diet consumed by those living in countries near the Mediterranean Sea(Greece, Italy, etc) and is rich in fruits, vegetables, olive oil and low in red meat and dairy products. Unlike the typical Western diet, the Mediterranean diet contains high amounts of monounsaturated fats (from olives) and is low in saturated fats. It is believed that saturated fat consumption can be associated with reduced cardiovascular health and as such, a diet emphasizing low saturated fat intake may be of benefit for optimal cardiovascular function. The Mediterranean diet and its cultural emphasis on physical activity may be why people consuming this type of traditional diet may enjoy greater cardiovascular benefits and remain healthy and active throughout the normal aging process. Mediterranean Forte was specially designed to provide ingredients commonly found in the Mediterranean diet. Contains 60 Capsules
Uni-Pros-Trol™ capsules provides 160 mg standardized Saw
Palmetto extract, 120 mg standardized Nettle extract, and 50 mg standardized Pygeum extract combined
with other nutrients important for the healthy function of the prostate gland and urinary tract.
As men age, the function of their prostate gland tends to change. This change during the normal aging
process can cause alterations in the functioning of urinary health, including hesitancy, urgency, and
increased frequency of urination.
Studies indicate that saw palmetto may be able to inhibit the conversion of testosterone to its more active and
potentially deleterious form, dihydrotestosterone (DHT),
via inhibition of alpha-5-reductase. Saw palmetto not only inhibits the binding of DHT to cellular receptors, but
also has alpha1-adrenoceptor-inhibitory properties. Alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonism may be responsible for
saw palmetto’s ability to provide support to the urinary tract and prostate. Saw palmetto extracts have also been
found to inhibit the biosynthesis of proinflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
Pygeum extract can decrease prolactin and cholesterol levels in the prostate, which in turn can decrease uptake
and reduce the number of binding sites for testosterone in the prostate. In addition, pygeum extract, like saw
palmetto, interferes with the synthesis of proinflammatory prostaglandins. Pumpkin seed and nettles are thought to
have similar properties.
Other nutrients have also shown promise for prostate health. Phytosterols, such as those found in extracts
of pumpkin seeds have demonstrated positive effects on urine flow, and frequency of urination. Zinc has
also been shown to be intricately involved in prostate health and metabolism. Zinc accumulates in the
mitochondria of prostate cells and effects the oxidation of citric acid. This in turn effects the Krebs cycle and the ability of the cell to produce energy. It is believed that this decrease in the prostate’s ability
to produce energy can lead to an inhibition of proliferation. Additionally, zinc may modify prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels. PSA has the ability to cleave certain proteins that bind insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I). These proteins then lose some of
their ability to bind IGF-I, leaving greater amounts of circulating IGF-I, which in turn can effect the
proliferation of certain tissues. Consequently, modifying PSA may lead to less IGF-I available to effect the prostate. Nutrients such as vitamin B6, selenium, vitamin E, lycopene and certain amino acids also appear to play an important role in maintaining proper prostate function. Contains 60 Capsules
