CFS Nutrition Flourish Chicory FOS prebiotic 300 gm powder

$25.00

02146-01400

1 jar with 300 grams. Extracted from chicory roots, Flourish is a >95% mix of inulin and fructooligosaccharides, together called FOS. These complex sugars preferentially cause the symbiotic bifidobacteria strains to “flourish”, becoming the predominate cultures in the large intestine when 4-15 grams are taken per day (1 tsp Flourish = 5 grams). Friendly bacteria in the colon produce biotin, B vitamins, vitamin K, short chain fatty acids, and help protect the intestinal tract from pathogens and toxins. Science has shown FOS derived from chicory has a more lasting affect in restoring friendly bacteria in the intestine than do probiotics containing bacteria only. Blend 1 tsp with chlorine-free water, or allow to dissolve directly on tongue 1-3 times daily.

GSH.jpg
CFS Nutrition Glutathione Precursors 120 v caps

$25.00

02146-00700

1 bottle with 120 vegetable capsules. The same amino acid blend found in “Defense” packets. These free form amino acids absorb into the bloodstream and readily form glutathione (GSH) inside of cells. GSH is the most abundant antioxidant enzyme inside of cells, essential for protection against free radicals, proper immune function and detoxification of xenobiotics such as mercury and drugs. By blending all three amino acids required for producing glutathione this blend avoids the common gastro-intestinal side-effects when only NAC is taken. These capsules can be taken as often as three times a day for extended periods of weeks and months as aggressive support for the body’s immune and detoxification processes. For best results this amino acid formula should be taken along with daily B vitamins such as found in our “Cellular B™ formula” and Defense & Replenish formulas.

Each vegetable capsule contains: 257mg N-acetyl L-cysteine (NAC), 128mg L-glutamic acid, 64mg L-glycine, free form amino acids.

CFS Nutrition pH Release 120 cap

$17.00

02146-02100

1 bottle of 120 capsules. Magnesium/Potassium Citrate Formula – Relieves muscle pain, chelates excess calcium, and supports cellular energy production. pH balance is essential for proper metabolism. Human metabolism relies on the salts of weak acids such as citrate to maintain pH in a tight physiological range. Citrate is known to chelate excess calcium from solution. Citrate is an essential substrate or ingredient for the Kreb or citric acid cycle of the mitochondria. Excess citrate is either consumed in cellular energy production or excreted along with excess minerals such as calcium in urine. Magnesium and potassium are essential trace minerals that can easily be lost during detox in sweat and urine. This formula complements the excretion enhancing actions of Glutathione Precursors, LDF and Chanca Piedra Tea.

Each vegetable capsule contains: 300mg potassium citrate, 200mg magnesium citrate

pur_lutein_zeaxan.jpg
Pure Encapsulations Lutein / Zeaxanthin 120 caps


$43.00
Lutein/Zeaxanthin*High-strength carotenoid blend for macular supportLutein and zeaxanthin are the two major carotenoid pigments stored in the macula, the central part of the retina. They are believed to promote the integrity and density of the macular pigment through antioxidant properties. In addition, they help form a protective layer that filters light, maintaining healthy photoreceptor function in the macula. Increased intake of these carotenoids is associated with increased macular concentration. Numerous double blind, placebo-controlled trials indicate that lutein and zeaxanthin support the health of the optical lens as well as the retina. Additionally, recent research has revealed that the combination may target different areas in the retina to enhance total retinal health, photoreceptor health, and color vision.Lutein and zeaxanthin are unique carotenoids that specifically support the macula and overall visual function.†† is a registered trademark of Kemin Industries, Inc.

pur_selenium.jpg
Pure Encapsulations Selenium 60 caps


$11.00
Selenium (selenomethionine)Antioxidant for immune system support*Selenium is a natural antioxidant that delays the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids and preserves the elasticity of tissue. Selenium is required for the production of certain prostaglandins, which promote healthy blood flow. In synergy with vitamin E, selenium promotes healthy growth and fertility, and improves the function of certain energy producing cells. Selenium also provides support for the immune system.Selenium protects normal cell function by supporting the body’s natural defenses and scavenging harmful free radicals.




pur_taurine.jpg
Pure Encapsulations Taurine 500 mg 60 veg cap


$9.00
TaurineTaurine 500 mg.Cardiovascular and detoxification support* Taurine is the most abundant free amino acid in the brain, heart, and nervous system, and it plays a role in the healthy functioning of the brain, heart, gallbladder, eyes, and vascular system. It facilitates the passage of sodium, potassium, and, possibly, calcium and magnesium ions into and out of cells, and electrically stabilizes cell membranes. It maintains healthy cAMP activity, which activates important enzymes in the heart muscle, and contributes to the muscle’s contractibility. Taurine is an important component of bile acids which aid in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. It aids the body’s chemistry by detoxifying harmful chemicals. Dietary taurine promotes the formation of taurocholate, a substance which increases cholesterol secretion in the bile and also supports fat metabolism in the liver.Taurine offers a wide range of nutritional support to many organ systems throughout the body; as a supplement it is most notably known for its heart muscle support.




pur_biotin_8mg.jpg
Pure Encapsulations Biotin 8 mg 60 capsules

$10.00
Biotin 8 mg, 60 capsules.Promotes healthy glucose metabolism and nerve health; helps support healthy nails*Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions. Biotin forms a covalent bond to the following carboxylase enzymes: pyruvate carboxylase for glucose metabolism, acetyl CoA carboxylase for fatty acid oxidation, and propionyl-CoA carboxylase and ?- methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase for amino acid metabolism. A clinical study reported that high dose administration of biotin helped promote healthy glucose metabolism. A number of animal studies support this claim. Biotin may also act to promote transcription and translation of glucokinase, an enzyme found in the liver and pancreas that participates in the metabolism of glucose to form glycogen. Studies have also indicated that biotin is supportive of nervous system health and function. A clinical study revealed that biotin promotes nerve cell health. In addition, a double-blind study reported that biotin supplementation may promote healthy lipid metabolism. Furthermore, clinical studies have indicated that biotin may adjust the cellular arrangement of the nail bed, helping to reinforce the keratin structure, promote strength and thickness, and reduce splitting. Recent studies have expanded biotin’s metabolic role, claiming that the vitamin maintains healthy genetic expression of the many enzymes for which it is a cofactor. One study suggested that this gene modulation is supportive of healthy immune system function, stating that biotin may be involved in the transcription of some immune cells.Biotin provides potential support for healthy glucose metabolism, nerve function, and nail strength.

Pure Encapsulations B-Complex Plus 60 v caps

$18.00
B-Complex Plus, 60 capsulesBalanced B vitamin formula*As a complex, the B vitamins are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system and are perhaps the most important nutritional factor for healthy nerve cells. The B vitamins also play a role in the conversion of carbohydrates into energy, in the metabolism of fats and protein, and in the maintenance of muscle tone in the GI tract. The B vitamins support the integrity of the skin, hair, and liver. This balanced combination of functionally interrelated B vitamins provides wide ranging benefits, yet is specifically supportive of the nervous system.As part of a well-balanced diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 may reduce the risk of vascular disease.††FDA evaluated the above claim and found that while it is known that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol reduce the risk of heart disease and other vascular diseases, the evidence in support of the above claim is inconclusive.
