Amino Acid Supplements

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. Eleven of these amino acids can be made by the body itself, while the other nine (called essential amino acids) must come from the diet. The classification of an amino acid as essential or nonessential does not reflect its importance, because all 20 amino acids are necessary for health. Instead, this classification system simply reflects whether or not the body is capable of manufacturing a particular amino acid.

We've included examples of a few products that contain Amino Acids.

Amino Acid Quick Sorb

Amino Acid Quick Sorb

Amino Acid Quick Sorb™ is a liquid containing nine free form L-amino acids that provide a stabilizing effect on blood glucose levels. It is used in situations where there is a need to rapidly increase blood glucose levels, such as endurance sports and reactive hypoglycemia.

Many of our patients who need the product keep it in their car for use when they are driving long distances. When they become fatigued or start to suffer with other symptoms of hypoglycemia, ten or fifteen drops under their tongue will usually relieve the symptoms until they are able to stop and eat. We also have several world class athletes, such as tennis players, who take this product between games or during events to keep their blood sugar and energy levels up.

Amino Acid Complex

Amino Acid Complex

Amino Acid Complex is a high-potency combination of essential and non-essential amino acids for use as a dietary supplement.

Amino Acid & Mineral Liquescence

Emulsified Nutritional Supplements

The significance of emulsified supplements is now being studied in fish and flax seed oil preparations as well as other supplements. One of the conclusions reached is that “Pre-emulsification of the oil prior to ingestion reduces droplet size and enables improved lipolysis resulting in significantly improved absorption” So the process makes these oils creamier and easier to swallow, and increases the absorbability of the essential fatty compounds by having the larger fat globules in the oil broken down for us. This is useful for everyone and is all the more important for those who suffer from poor digestion, plus it eliminates those fishy burps! The emulsification process in short helps us gain more health benefits.

We've included several examples of Emulsified Nutritional supplements

top_bkgrnd_vitamins_supps_vendor_biotics624.jpg

A.D.P.®

ADP is a standardized extract of the oil of oregano, emulsified in a sustained release form. It should be taken just before meals on an empty stomach.
ADP is useful in toxic bowel syndrome, parasites, Candida and other fungal/yeast problems of the bowel and genital-urinary tract. We have also found that ADP can be useful for upper respiratory bacterial infections.


ADP is also effective in cases of amoebic parasitic infestations of the bowel and with Helicobacter pylori problems. When ADP has been used for more than two weeks it is necessary to introduce either Lactozyme or BioDoph-7 Plus, BioDophilus-FOS Powder, Colon Plus Powder, Colon-Plus Caps, or BioDophilus Caps.

Emulsi-D3

Emulsi-D3™

Emulsi-D3™ is a concentrated, highly bioavailable liquid vitamin D
formulation offering a broad range of dosages and titration possibilities.
Unlike most other liquid vitamin D products available, Emulsi-D3™ is a convenient, pleasant tasting and easily mixed formula.


A natural emulsion technology allows us to produce a 2000 IU per
drop formula that quickly and completely disperses in liquid. This
cutting edge technology provides enhanced bioavailability utilizing
only naturally derived ingredients that are free of preservatives and
synthetic surfactants.


Presented in a 1oz glass bottle, Emulsi-D3™ makes dosing vitamin D
convenient, as it can be dropped into any beverage or simply on the
tongue, and provides accurate dosing 1 drop at a time.

Bio-AE-Mulsion Forte

Bio-AE-Mulsion Forte

Bio-AE-Mulsion Forte® is a Vitamin A product in a true emulsified form where one (1) drop contains 12,500 I.U. of Vitamin A. This product is emulsified mechanically to break the Vitamin A liquid down into very tiny droplets about 1 micron in size.


What this means is that you can absorb large amounts of this vitamin without the toxic side effects of regular Vitamin A such as liver toxicity. This is because this product by passes the liver and its circulation and is absorbed directly into the lymphatic system thereby preventing any toxic side effects.


We use Bio-AE-Mulsion Forte in persons with immune problems, such as viral infections, flu, colds, environmental allergies, bacterial infection, acne, ringing in the ears, and as a vaginal douche for candida and vaginitis. Also use with any condition involving free radical attack, kidney or bladder dysfunction, night blindness, skin disorders. It should be noted that vitamin A is one of the first nutrients to be depleted with viral infections.

Enzymes / Gastrointestinal Supplements

Enzymes / Gastrointestinal Supplements

Enzymes are complex proteins that act as catalysts in almost every biochemical process that takes place in the body. Their activity depends on the presence of adequate vitamins and minerals. Many enzymes incorporate a single molecule of a trace mineral -- such as copper, iron or zinc -- without which the enzyme cannot function. In the 1930's, when enzymes first came to the attention of biochemists, some 80 were identified; today over 5,000 have been discovered.

Enzyme research has revealed the importance of raw foods in the diet. The enzymes in raw food help start the process of digestion and reduce the body’s need to produce digestive enzymes. All enzymes are deactivated at a wet-heat temperature of 118 degrees Fahrenheit, and a dry-heat temperature of about 150 degrees. It is one of those happy designs of nature that foods and liquid at 117 degrees can be touched without pain, but liquids over 118 degrees will burn. Thus we have a built-in mechanism for determining whether or not the food we are eating still contains its enzyme content.

We've included several products that contain Enzymes and are Gastrointestinal Supplements.

Berberine HCl

Berberine HCl

Berberine HCl supplies Berberine HCl isolated from Berberis vulgaris (barberry). Berberine has a long history of use in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for its natural antibiotic function, especially with intestinal bacterial overgrowth, for its ability to reduce fever, but most especially for its ability to help lower blood glucose and A1c with Type II Diabetics.


Several studies have shown berberine to be as effective as Metformin for increased A1c. Berberine has also been shown to be effective in inhibiting 5a reductase type 2 and this is important as over-activity has been linked to the progression of prostate cancer.

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive Leaf Extract contains significant quantities of phenolic compounds, such as oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol that have been shown to have antimicrobial properties, antioxidant power, and have the ability to support phagocytosis. It can also be used to support the health of the cardiovascular system.

Dosing: Take 1 capsule per day or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Betaine Hydrochloride

Betaine Hydrochloride

Betaine Hydrochloride supports normal gastrointestinal pH. It supports healthy protein digestion. Hydrochloric acid is involved in maintaining proper gastric pH. Hydrochloric acid also enhances calcium, iron, and vitamin B12 absorption.

Essential Fatty Acid Supplements

Essential Fatty Acid Supplements

All fats, including saturated fatty acids, have important roles in the body. However, the most important fats are those that the body cannot make and thus must come from the food we eat. These essential fatty acids (EFAs) are based on linoleic acid (omega-6 group) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3 group). We need both groups of essential fatty acids to survive. For various reasons EFA deficiency is common in the general population, as is a disproportionate intake of omega-6 fatty acids over omega-3 fatty acids. As such, it is important to eat the right foods to make sure that you're taking in enough and the right kinds of the essential fatty acids. However, there is much more to the story. Studies have shown that increasing the intake of certain essential fatty acids, either alone or in combination with other fats and compounds, can increase health, help in treating certain diseases, and even improve body composition, mental and physical performance.

We've included examples of a few products that contain Essential Fatty Acids.

Biomega-3 Liquid

Biomega-3 Liquid™

Biomega-3™ Liquid is an all natural marine lipid concentrate derived from anchovies and sardines sourced following the strict standards of the European Union (EU). The oil used in this product is the same as that used in BioMega-500 and BioMega-1000.

Biomega-3™ Liquid contains beneficial compounds for the brain, cardiovascular system, the skin, and down-regulation of pro-inflammatory mediators. For optimal shelf life, refrigerate product after opening.

GLA 240

GLA 240

GLA 240 mg softgels supply gamma-linolenic acid from the oil of borage seeds. GLA is essential for smooth and healthy skin and female hormonal balance.

GLA is a precursor to dihomo-gamma.linoleic acid (DGLA), which is a building block for compounds that help to resolve the inflammatory response.

 

The amount of GLA in each 1-softgel serving may be difficult to obtain from dietary intake alone.

Dosing: Take 1 softgel per day with a meal or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Black Currant Seed Oil

Black Currant Seed Oil

Black Currant Seed Oil contains the essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). It encourages proper eicosanoid synthesis, supports the body's normal tissue repair process, supports normal blood flow and supports healthy immune system function.

Homeopathic Supplements

Homeopathic Supplements

Homeopathy is a holistic medicine which uses specially prepared, highly diluted substances (given mainly in tablet form) with the aim of triggering the body’s own healing mechanisms. Homeopathy is based on the principle of "like treats like" – that is, a substance which can cause symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat similar symptoms.

We've included examples of a few Homeopathic products.

Mineral Supplements

Mineral Supplements

Minerals are inorganic substances required by the body in small amounts for a variety of different functions. Minerals are involved in the formation of bones and teeth; they are essential constituents of body fluids and tissues; they are components of enzyme systems and they are involved in normal nerve function. The body requires different amounts of each mineral; people have different requirements, according to their age, sex, physiological state (e.g. pregnancy) and sometimes their state of health.

We've included examples of a few mineral Supplements.

C Synergy, formerly known as Collagen C

C Synergy, formerly known as Collagen C

C Synergy, formerly known as Collagen C, is a supplement to support collagen production, contains antioxidant vitamin C to support healthy connective tissue.
 

What Collagen Does
Collagen is a protein molecule made up of amino acids. It provides structural support between cells that make up the inner layers of connective tissues in our skin. The connective tissue in the inner (middle) layer of the skin is composed of collagen and elastin fibers, which maintain the tension and elasticity of skin.


Vitamin C and Skin Health
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis make it a vital molecule for skin health. Vitamin C’s antioxidant activity is particularly important in the top (epidermal) layer of our skin, where its concentration is 425% higher than in the dermis. Ultraviolet light, especially UVA, is a common factor that induces skin oxidative stress. The antioxidant activity of vitamin C helps protect against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals. Cell culture studies have shown that addition of vitamin C might influence the ability of the skin to protect itself from water loss.
Dosing: One tablet per meal, or as directed.

Protein Supplements

Protein Supplements

Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

We've included examples of a few Protein Supplements.

NutriClear

NutriClear®

NutriClear® is a biologically active, hypoallergenic clearing formula designed to support healing of the gastrointestinal tract and safe and effective detoxification of the liver. Available in both the original and chocolate flavors.

 

Recommended Uses: Use with "leaky gut syndrome", digestive inflammation (ulcers, food sensitivity), rheumatoid arthritis, and other conditions where a 7 to 21 day clearing procedure is desired.


IMPORTANT: To ensure hepatic clearing, always use with Livotrit-Plus and Beta-TCP or Beta-Plus and IPS. Nutri-Clear should be used with Whey Protein Isolate when the 10-Day Detox Packs are used.


Note: Nutri-Clear does not contain any hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats or oils.
 

How to Use: NutriClear® is a powder and should be mixed with water, milk, rice or almond milk, or diluted juice, or added into a blender drink. It is excellent for situations when there is no time to eat healthy fast food. It can be used as a supplement or as a meal replacement. If used often and without food, it can provoke overly-rapid detoxification.


Basic concepts of detoxification:

  1. Oxidation: In a process that generates free radicals, an molecule of reactive oxygen is added to the toxin that is being processed. The purpose of this first step is to make the toxin ready for the second stage of the detoxification process. If nutrient supply is insufficient, then the first oxidative step may not proceed efficiently or the free radical damage from the biochemical reactions may increase oxidative stress and lead to tissue damage.

  2. Conjugation: The second phase of detoxification is the conjugation stage, wherein a molecule such as taurine, glycine, or glutathione is covalently bound to the toxin to increase its solubility in water. After the conjugation step, the toxin is ready to be excreted in the bile or urine. If nutrients are not sufficiently available for this second step, then the oxidized toxin cannot be excreted efficiently and may cause secondary damage by interacting with body tissues and DNA.

Proteinuria Drops

Proteinuria Drops

Proteinuria Drops is used for the temporary relief of mild pain in the back or abdomen, bloating, foaming urine, or swelling of small joints.

Recommended Dosage: Place drops under tongue 30 minutes before/after meals. Adults and children 12 years and over: Take 10 drops up to 3 times per day. Consult a physician for use in children under 12 years of age.

Vitamin A supplements

Vitamin A Supplements

Vitamin A is the name of a group of fat-soluble retinoids, including retinol, retinal, and retinyl esters. Vitamin A is involved in immune function, vision, reproduction, and cellular communication. Vitamin A is critical for vision as an essential component of rhodopsin, a protein that absorbs light in the retinal receptors, and because it supports the normal differentiation and functioning of the conjunctival membranes and cornea. Vitamin A also supports cell growth and differentiation, playing a critical role in the normal formation and maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.

We've included examples of a few products that contain Vitamin A.

VasculoSirt

VasculoSirt

VasculoSirt® is a state of the art product, formulated by Mark Houston, M.D., Vanderbilt University. It provides comprehensive support for healthy cardiovascular function. Key components include vitamin A, D, B complex, magnesium, Green tea extract, Co-Enzyme Q-10, Acetyl-L Carnitine, Olive leaf extract, Quercetin, Phytolens, Lutein and Lycopene as well as the following:


Resveratrol – A phytoalexin found in certain plants that has been shown to increase the activity of Sirtuins, inhibit platelet aggregation (in-vitro), modulate transcription factor NFkappaB, potentially have a direct inhibitory action on cardiac fibroblasts and possess chemo-protective properties.


R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) – An active natural isomer of lipoic acid. In-vitro studies have demonstrated that R-ALA supplementation improves mitochondrial function, increases metabolic rate and decreases oxidative damage. Ambulatory activity, a measure of metabolic activity, was almost three times higher with R-ALA. R-ALA also enhances glutathione levels and is linked to the detoxification of xenobiotics.


EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate) – A major catechin found in green tea. EGCG is the most potent of the green tea catechins. EGCG inhibits the activity of transcription factors AP-1 and NFkappaB, key inflammatory mediators; it promotes fat oxidation and is both chemo-protective and cardio-protective.


Vitamin K (K2 and K1) – Inadequate calcium metabolism results in arterial calcification and osteoporosis. With optimal levels of vitamin K, osteocalcin is carboxylated and effective. Insufficient vitamin K fails to modify (carboxylate) the Matrix Gla Protein (MGP), an important inhibitor of arterial calcification. Vitamin K2 is structurally different from the more common vitamin K1 (found in green leafy vegetables) and is found primarily in fermented products, primarily Natto.


NOTE: This product is fairly expensive for two main reasons:

  1. RESVERATROL and

  2. VITAMIN K2

Pharmaceutical grades of these two products are expensive as any nutrient in existence. Vitamin K2 easilyl sells for $12.95 for 100 capsules. With pharmaceutical grade nutrients, I can assure you there is no way in the world those products are the products the scientists have done research with. And the same goes double for Resveratrol. THESE PRODUCTS ARE EXPENSIVE. So you get what you pay for.


Recommended Uses: VasculoSirt® should be considered for vascular support (atherosclerosis, etc.) and as support for cardiac and arterial function.


Dosing: The initial dose should be 5 capsules twice a day, however after 30-45 days the dose can be lowered to 3 capsules twice a day. Take with meals.

Vitamin B12 Supplements

Vitamin B12 Supplements

Vitamin B12 is extremely important. It helps make DNA, nerve and blood cells, and is crucial for a healthy brain and immune system. Two steps are required for the body to absorb vitamin B12 from food. First, hydrochloric acid in the stomach separates vitamin B12 from the protein to which vitamin B12 is attached in food. After this, vitamin B12 combines with a protein made by the stomach called intrinsic factor and is absorbed by the body. Some people have pernicious anemia, a condition in which they cannot make intrinsic factor. As a result, they have trouble absorbing vitamin B12 from all foods and dietary supplements.


Vitamin B12 deficiency is extremely common. In fact, it is a major contributor to iron deficiency and since many doctors don't test for B12 deficiency the wrong cause for the iron deficiency is ?assigned. We routinely test for B12 deficiency. You can read about it in the Lab Tests section of the website.

We've included examples of a few products that contain Vitamin B12.

B12-2000™ Lozenges

B12-2000™ Lozenges

B12 2000™ Lozenges contain 2000 micrograms of vitamin B12 and 800 micrograms of Folic Acid per lozenge. It is used with anemia, chronic fatigue, homocystinuria, digestive inflammation, low serum uric acid, elevated MCV or MCH, chronic debilitating problems, diabetes and neuromuscular disorders.

To correctly identify a need for vitamin B12, a urinary or serum methylmalonic acid may be performed. However, this is a pattern that will be accurate most of the time: If the MCV is above 89.9 in conjunction with an MCH above 31.9 (they have to be increased together), the probability of need for vitamin B12 is extremely high. Decreased uric acid (below 3.0) can also indicate a vitamin B12 need.

Vitamin B12, an essential vitamin, is an indispensable coenzyme for two very important enzymes having key roles in internal metabolism. Methylmalonyl-CoA mutase is involved in fatty acid metabolism, and methionine synthase is involved in nucleic acid synthesis and methylation reactions.

Folic acid, like B12, is required for DNA synthesis. Folate is involved in protein synthesis and lipid metabolism.

Vitamin B6 is vital to numerous functions. They include immune function, glucoeogenesis, red cell metabolism, lipid and neurotransmitter synthesis affecting the nervous system, and hormone function.

Oral Contraceptive-Drug/Nutrient Interactions: The use of oral contraceptives is associated with decreased folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 levels. Among the areas of concern are the increased homocysteine plasma concentration (which impacts cardiac health), and in the case of pregnancy after cessation of oral contraceptive use, the increased risk of neural tube defects resulting from Folate depletion.

Nutritional Status and Age-related Hearing Loss in Elderly Women: Concern over B12 Folate status is not limited to women of childbearing age. Poor vitamin B12 and Folate status may be associated with age-related auditory function. Two of the most common vitamin inadequacies in the elderly are vitamin B12 and Folate.

B12 2000™ Lozenges should be taken between meals. Don't chew the lozenges. Let them dissolve in the mouth. This is very important for the B12 to be absorbed through the mouth.

Many prescription drugs diminish your body’s levels of B12, including antibiotics, anticancer medications, anticonvulsants, anti-gout medications, antihypertensives, antiParkinson's medications, antipsychotics, antituberculosis medications, birth control pills, cholesterol-lowering drugs, and potassium replacements.

In addition to emulsified forms of vitamins D and K, Bio-DK Caps™ contains superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase. SOD is an enzyme that aids in cell repair and provides antioxidant protection against cellular damage from free radicals and environmental toxins. Catalase in an enzyme that converts hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water, also showing strong antioxidant properties.

Vitamin D and K work synergistically to optimize bone and heart health and vitamin K is essential for correct calcium utilization. Vitamin K activates osteocalcin and matrix Gla-protein (MGP), protein that assists with directing calcium to bones and teeth and away from arteries. This product as well as Bio-DK Mulsion™ contain K-1 (green leafy vegetable source) and K-2 (MK-7) as they work synergistically to support bone strength and to help prevent calcium deposition in the arteries.

Dosing: The average dose is 1 capsule per day.

Vitamin D Supreme

Vitamin D Supreme

Vitamin D Supreme provides clinically useful amounts of vitamin D3 and vitamin K (both K1 and K2 [as MK-4]), along with geranylgeraniol (GG), a substance produced naturally in the body, to promote optimal bone and arterial health and to maintain the immune system in proper balance. The amount of vitamins D and K in this formula may be beneficial for those who do not receive adequate sun exposure and/or dietary sources of these vitamins. Vitamins D and K work synergistically, thus, increasing vitamin D increases the need for vitamin K.

Recommended Use: Take one capsule per day with a meal, or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Warning: Consult your health-care practitioner before using this product if you are taking Coumadin, warfarin or other anticoagulant medications.

Cataplex® D

Cataplex® D

Cataplex D is a vitamin D supplement providing 40 mcg (1,600 IU) of vitamin D that supports the immune system, bone health, and mineral absorption.

Vitamin D is a micronutrient that helps your body absorb calcium, which is needed for bone health. It also assists your body’s immune system. Very few foods naturally contain vitamin D, so sources of this micronutrient include limited whole food options. Additional natural sources include direct sunlight, which also poses additional risks. Therefore, many people would benefit from supplementation of vitamin D.

  • Supports healthy immune system response function

  • Encourages healthy calcium absorption from the intestinal tract into the blood

  • Supports and maintains healthy bone density

  • Provides vitamin D, which is needed by almost every cell in the body for development and transcription

  • Excellent source of vitamin D and antioxidant vitamin A

 

Dosing: Two tablets per day, or as directed.

Vitamin K Supplements

Vitamin K Supplements

Vitamin K plays a key role in helping the blood clot, preventing excessive bleeding. Unlike many other vitamins, vitamin K is not typically used as a dietary supplement. Vitamin K is actually a group of compounds. The most important of these compounds appears to be vitamin K1 and vitamin K2. Vitamin K1 is obtained from leafy greens and some other vegetables. Vitamin K2 is a group of compounds largely obtained from meats, cheeses, and eggs, and synthesized by bacteria. Vitamin K1 is the main form of vitamin K supplement available in the U.S.

We've included examples of a few products that contain Vitamin K.

VasculoSirt®

VasculoSirt®

VasculoSirt® is a state of the art product, formulated by Mark Houston, M.D., Vanderbilt University. It provides comprehensive support for healthy cardiovascular function. Key components include vitamin A, D, B complex, magnesium, Green tea extract, Co-Enzyme Q-10, Acetyl-L Carnitine, Olive leaf extract, Quercetin, Phytolens, Lutein and Lycopene as well as the following:


Resveratrol – A phytoalexin found in certain plants that has been shown to increase the activity of Sirtuins, inhibit platelet aggregation (in-vitro), modulate transcription factor NFkappaB, potentially have a direct inhibitory action on cardiac fibroblasts and possess chemo-protective properties.


R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) – An active natural isomer of lipoic acid. In-vitro studies have demonstrated that R-ALA supplementation improves mitochondrial function, increases metabolic rate and decreases oxidative damage. Ambulatory activity, a measure of metabolic activity, was almost three times higher with R-ALA. R-ALA also enhances glutathione levels and is linked to the detoxification of xenobiotics.


EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate) – A major catechin found in green tea. EGCG is the most potent of the green tea catechins. EGCG inhibits the activity of transcription factors AP-1 and NFkappaB, key inflammatory mediators; it promotes fat oxidation and is both chemo-protective and cardio-protective.


Vitamin K (K2 and K1) – Inadequate calcium metabolism results in arterial calcification and osteoporosis. With optimal levels of vitamin K, osteocalcin is carboxylated and effective. Insufficient vitamin K fails to modify (carboxylate) the Matrix Gla Protein (MGP), an important inhibitor of arterial calcification. Vitamin K2 is structurally different from the more common vitamin K1 (found in green leafy vegetables) and is found primarily in fermented products, primarily Natto.


NOTE: This product is fairly expensive for two main reasons:

  1. RESVERATROL and

  2. VITAMIN K2

Pharmaceutical grades of these two products are expensive as any nutrient in existence. Vitamin K2 easilyl sells for $12.95 for 100 capsules. With pharmaceutical grade nutrients, I can assure you there is no way in the world those products are the products the scientists have done research with. And the same goes double for Resveratrol. THESE PRODUCTS ARE EXPENSIVE. So you get what you pay for.


Recommended Uses: VasculoSirt® should be considered for vascular support (atherosclerosis, etc.) and as support for cardiac and arterial function.


Dosing: The initial dose should be 5 capsules twice a day, however after 30-45 days the dose can be lowered to 3 capsules twice a day. Take with meals.
