Cholesterol & Lipid Support Optimizer™
INTRO: Your goal is to have healthy cholesterol and lipid levels within a normal, youthful range. We obviously don't want "high" cholesterol. However, "low" cholesterol isn't healthy either. To achieve this goal, we've utilized 4 scientifically researched ingredients at the highest, scientifically validated extract dose:
Phytosterols Complex (40% extract from Non-GMO pine tree extract): Plant sterols and plant stanols are collectively known as phytosterols. Because they so closely resemble cholesterol, they can actually block food-based cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream19*
NOTE: We use the highest extract at 40%, which has been shown in scientific studies to work. We also have utilized Non-GMO version, for safer consumption.
Garlic (Extract 5% alliin; std. to 2,500 ppm allicin potential): has many healthy benefits, more specifically it supports cardiovascular health, healthy platelet function (non-sticky blood) and enhanced immune fucntion.5,6*
NOTE: We specifically use Deodorized (non-smelling) garlic, with the highest 5% alliin extract (std. to 2,500 ppm allicin potential) for maximum benefits, results and safety.
Guggulsterones (10% Pure Extract; E and Z): has numerous healthy benefits for the heart:.9*
- reduces bile acid, which can help support a healthy cholesterol profile
- promotes healthy thyroid production, which can help excrete excess cholesterol
- supports improved triglycerides (fat in the blood)
HDL/LDL Support Optimizer™
INTRO: Once we've supported total cholesterol, lipid and triglyceride levels within a normal, healthy range - we need optimize the HDL ("good", high-density lipoprotein) and LDL ("bad", low-density lipoprotein ) ratios.
Research has shown this to may be more important than total cholesterol levels. We've used 3 powerful, science-backed ingredients to support healthy HDL/LDL ratios.*
Pycri nil® Artichoke Leaf Extract (STD: 15% Chlorogenic Acid, 5% Cynarin): Contains polyphenolic compounds supporting optimal HDL/LDL ratios already within normal range.*
NOTE: Pycri nil® has the highest and purest artichoke leave extract validated in human research studies.
Pantesin® d-Pantethine: Works at the cellular level, enhancing enzyme and metabolic activity to help maintain balanced cholesterol levels, promoting improved levels of HDL & LDL, within a normal, youthful range.*
NOTE: Pantesin® is the only correct version of d Pantethine validated in 35+ years of scientific studies, supporting its positive effects on cholesterol levels.*
Policosanol (from Sugar Cane - Saccharum species): A blend of long-chain fatty alcohols (LCFAs) derived from sugar cane, which has been shown to:
- positively influence cholesterol metabolism*
- reduce cholesterol production in the liver*
- support lower levels of harmful LDL & help raise protective HDL*
Homocysteine Support Optimizer™
INTRO: Did you know that half of all heart attacks happen to people with NORMAL blood cholesterol levels?... That's because there are other rick factors that can be problematic and one of the major ones is homocysteine levels.
Fortunately, the correct ratios of specific B-vitamins + a special form of Vitamin E can quickly promote healthy homocysteine levels within a normal, youthful range.
What Is Homocysteine?
It's amino acid in the blood, associated with an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. 27 Medical experts predict that homocysteine levels will prove to be as important as
cholesterol in predicting heart and brain health.
What Causes Elevated Homocysteine?
A lack of nutrients in the diet, particularly a specific group of B-vitamins. Without these essential vitamins, your body is unable to produce the enzymes necessary to remove homocysteine efficiently from your blood.
How Can You Treat Homocysteine?
A lack of B Vitamins and E, leads to elevated homocysteine levels, which is why high homocysteine and vegetarian diets are directly related. 26 Fortunately the situation is easily treatable with the following combination of specific forms and dosages of vitamins:
- B5 (Pantothenic Acid as D-Calcium Panothenate)
- B6 (as pyridoxine HCL)
- B12 (as methylcobalamin)
- Folate (as 5-Methyl-tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF))
- E (as Mixed Tocotrienols; 90% Delta & 10% Gamma Tocotrienols)
Mitochondria Support Optimizer™
INTRO: Mitochondria gives energy to all your cells. They play a key role in the normal functioning of the heart and every organ in the body. Unfortunately, as we age and negative changes in hormones, mitochondria production drops.
Taking many medications, especially cholesterol lowering drugs, depletes mitochondria even more. For healthy heart, brain and organ function, we must improve levels of mitochondria production after the age of 35.*
Co-Q10 (Ubiquinone + Ubiquinol): Known as Co-enzyme Q-10, is found in every cell in the body - the most found in the organs, muscles and heart. Unfortunately, natural production of CoQ10 peaks in our 20s. Because of aging, lack of hormones, genetics and life-style, it's best to supplement BOTH forms of CoQ10, Ubiquinone + Ubiquionol, for maximum absorption and results. 10-12*
R+ Alpha Lipoic Acid (r+ ALA): The correct absorbable "R" form supporting:
- healthy mitochondrial function
- antioxidant protection
- healthy glucose metabolism
- liver health
- glutathione production & immune function
Liver Support Optimizer™
INTRO: Did you know that most of the body's supply of cholesterol (approximately 80%) is made in the liver and NOT from the dietary cholesterol you eat?
Unfortunately, due to aging and unhealthy life-styles (dehydration, drugs, alcohol, toxins in our foods, etc.), our liver gets weaker and is unable to excrete excess cholesterol, like it once use to in our younger years.
Therefore, we've included 4 powerful liver support and detoxifying ingredients, at the highest extracts and scientifically validated dosages, to help promote healthier lipid levels, cholesterol metabolism & cell health:*
NAC (N-Acetyl L-Cysteine) An amino acid and precursor to glutathione, a powerful antioxidant which protects cells from free radical damage, supports immune system health and liver function.*
Milk Thistle (80% Extract): Contains phytonutrients that fight oxidative stress and support liver health. Make sure to use the highest, 80% extract. *
Turmeric (95% curcuminoids Extract): Has numerous health benefits, such as supporting:
- cardiovascular & brain health
- immune function
- healthy inflammation
- liver health
- healthy gut
