Good nutrition is a basis for wellness, and good nutrition usually translates into a stronger immune system and better health. An important aspect of good nutrition is micronutrition (vitamins and minerals).[1-4] Micronutrients participate in converting food to energy; building and repairing tissues and DNA; manufacturing neurotransmitters, hormones, and other modulators in the body; breaking down and detoxifying xenobiotics and medications; and maintaining growth, reproduction, and health. This is an ‘insurance plan’ you are meeting your basic wellness needs paired with a healthy, whole foods diet. This high-quality, hypoallergenic, multivitamin/mineral blend includes activated vitamins; folate as Quatrefolic® (5-MTHF) for optimal utilization; and patented Albion® TRAACS® chelated mineral complexes in vegetarian capsules.
Stress is caused by physiological, psychological, or emotional triggers (stressors) that cause a disturbance in the homeostasis of an organism. How we respond to those stressors (physiologically and psychologically) influences how well we cope with change and with ongoing stress. Research reveals that prolonged stress has a profound effect on the adrenal glands, lymph nodes, thymus gland, and gastrointestinal system. Exogenous supplementation can improve micronutrient status and sufficiency and help support a healthy response to stress. Adrenal Manager also contains a blend of complementary nutrients and purified glandulars to nurture these precious glands to back to health.
CurcuPlex-95TM features BCM-95®—a 100% pure turmeric extract standardized to curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin, and essential oils of turmeric rhizome. This natural composition optimizes bioavailability and reflects true turmeric identity to deliver optimal health benefits. The mechanisms underlying curcumin’s effects are diverse and have not been fully elucidated, but there are numerous published studies in the areas of oral/colon health, wound healing, bioavailability/synergism, join health, toxicology, healthy cell cycle, urinary health, liver metabolism, and mood/cognition. BCM-95 has been extensively studied and shows broad efficacy without the use of phospholipids, excipients, additives, carriers, nanotechnology, or bioenhancers. Turmeric has been safely consumed for thousands of years, and its medicinal compound curcumin has an outstanding safety profile.
DioVascTM contains well-researched, citrus-based flavonoids in a unique micronized form for enhanced absorption and bioavailability. Research suggests that these compounds support healthy veins, capillaries and blood flow; promote healthy lymphatic drainage; and enhance antioxidant activity; and support healthy eicosanoid metabolism. More recent research suggests the components in DioVasc also support blood glucose metabolism. Diosmin has been utilized for decades to support healthy capillary and vein function as well as healthy microcirculation throughout the body. Diosmin fundamentally helps maintain the structure and function of the circulatory system, especially vein strength and competence.
Whether it be during menstruation, ovulation, or menopause, the hormones in the female cycle fluctuate throughout a woman’s lifetime. Hormonal imbalances contribute to the irritability and cramping commonly associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and the hot flashes, sleep problems, and vaginal dryness associated with menopause. Hormonal imbalances may be exacerbated by xenoestrogens, a subcategory of endocrine disruptors that specifically have estrogen-like effects. FemquilTM delivers biologically active folate and other key methylation vitamins in combination with a targeted blend of ingredients to encourage hormone balance, help modify xenoestrogen activity, and restore tranquility. Vitex and black cohosh provide traditional hormone- balancing support; DIM, calcium D-glucarate, and 8-prenylnaringenin (from hops extract) promote estrogen detoxification; and rosemary, resveratrol, grape seed extract, and green tea extract provide antioxidant activity.
Hormone Protect uses a dual-action approach to supporting healthy estrogen-sensitive tissues. First, it provides diindolylmethane (DIM) to promote healthy estrogen metabolism and create a better balance of estrogen metabolites (2-OH, 4-OH, 16alpha-OH). Second, the action of DIM is complemented by providing sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS), which protects tissues from unrestrained oxidative stress and uniquely supports phase II detoxification of harmful estrogen metabolites (e.g., estrogen quinones) and xenoestrogens. These actions may be important for the health of estrogen-sensitive tissues, such as those of the breast, uterus, cervix, and prostate. This is a wonderful pairing to any hormone replacement therapy.
K2-D3 5000 provides vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7), a highly bioavailable and bioactive form of K2, and D3 as cholecalciferol. These two vitamins work very synergistically together. The body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium, and the importance of vitamin D in skeletal health and bone density is well established. Although bone density is most often associated with calcium intakes, insufficient vitamin D negatively affects calcium absorption. The role of vitamin D in the body is vast. Research now suggests that optimal serum levels of vitamin D support normal cell differentiation, cardiovascular health, normal immune function, good balance, healthy mood, normal fetal development, neuronal growth and neurodevelopment, healthy glucose metabolism, musculoskeletal comfort, periodontal health, and normal intestinal immune responses. Areas of research that have gained momentum over the past several years concern the relationship of vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency to changes in cellular proliferation, changes in fetal brain development, and mental health. Evidence is also mounting that vitamin D supplementation may provide key immune support.
Omega MonoPure feature IFOS five-star certified MaxSimil® monoglyceride fish oil that has a three times greater EPA+DHA absorption rate than an equivalent dose of other leading fish oils. Through the use of MaxSimil patented lipid absorption enhancement technology (PLATform), the fish oil is absorption-ready and can be directly assimilated in the intestinal tract for maximum benefit. This technology has been applied to XYMOGEN’s Omega MonoPure formulas in order to create a unique vehicle by which to deliver EPA and DHA. Due to the fact that monoglyceride oils are intrinsically emulsifiers and are, by nature, in a readily absorbable form, they can bypass the body’s normal fat digestion process. These qualities make Omega MonoPure an excellent method for delivering omega-3 fatty acids, especially to individuals with digestive, pancreatic, or gall bladder challenges. Studies show that MaxSimil fish oils have three times (300%) greater absorption of EPA and DHA compared to other leading fish oils.

RegeneMax® Plus features clinically tested ch-OSA® (choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid) complemented with biotin. ch-OSA naturally helps nourish your body’s beauty proteins by supporting and activating enzymes used by collagen-generating cells to make collagen. Regular orthosilicic acid (OSA) has to be stabilized to avoid polymerization, a process that decreases bioavailability. ch-OSA’s patented choline-stabilization technology prevents polymers from forming and ensures OSA’s optimal absorption. By combining ch-OSA with biotin, RegeneMax Plus offers an even greater level of beauty support. Use this formula to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, thicken and strenthen hair and nails, support healthy bone mineral density and bone flexibility, and promote connective tissue formation for healthy joints.

S-Acetyl Glutathione is an acetylated form of glutathione. This form is well-absorbed and more stable throughout the digestive tract than other forms on the market. Use of stomach acid-resistant capsules (DRcapsTM) further protect stability. Laboratory data showed that S-acetyl glutathione increased intracellular glutathione and had a positive effect on many oxidative stress biomarkers. Glutathione functions extensively in tissues and organs throughout the body. It plays critical roles in protecting the body from oxidative stress, maintaining cellular functions, and supporting healthy immune function.
TestoPlexTM Plus features two safe, clinically-tested, standardized, and patented ingredients designed to support vitality and general physical and mental well-being in men and women.
