Rhodiola

Rhodiola rosea

Rhodiola, also known as “Arctic Root” or “Roseroot”, is authentic Russian Rhodiola rosea, an herb with a long history of use as an adaptogen and sexual tonic in the traditional medicine of Iceland, Norway, the Carpathian Mountains of the Ukraine, and above all in Siberia, for adaptation to the rigors of life on the tundras of North-central Asia. Dioscorides, the father of medical botany, provides the earliest documented medicinal use of this botanical in De Materia Medica, a phytomedicinal text which formed the basis of Western pharmaceutical and herbal writing for the next 1500 years. In more recent times, Rhodiola preparations have been listed in the national pharmacopoeias of France, Sweden, Denmark, and the former USSR, as an adaptogen and “brain tonic”. In the nations of the former Soviet Union, Rhodiola is traditionally prepared in the form of a tincture called “nastojka”, decocted from fresh Rhodiola roots by soaking the roots in 40% alcohol for one week.

Rigorous testing of Rhodiola’s adaptogenic properties in the former Soviet Union began in the mid-60s, and has continued to this day. Four decades of animal studies and controlled clinical trials in humans clearly demonstrates that Rhodiola extract is a true adaptogenic botanical.

As a classic adaptogen, Rhodiola extracts both steel the organism against the eventuality of stressors, and prevent an overshoot into burnout when those stressors are endured. This can be seen in the botanical’s simultaneous bolstering of the baseline levels of adaptive neurotransmitters and hormones typically increased in response to adaptation to the rigors of endurance training, and prevention of over activation of those same pathways when the organism is in a stressful environment. As another example of the adaptive, balancing effect of Rhodiola, the key component salidroside has been found to prevent excessive blood sugar levels after an injection of adrenaline (which normally causes the body to pump out more glucose) and to prevent blood sugar levels from falling too low after an injection of insulin.

Again, Soviet scientists discovered a generation ago that Rhodiola allows experimental animals to use their body’s glycogen energy reserves more sparingly under forced exercise, and to replenish those reserves (and reserves of the crucial high-energy compound creatine phosphate) more quickly afterwards. These properties doubtless contribute to Rhodiola’s ability to extend animals’ endurance during forced swimming or clinging to a rod to avoid falling. To make sure that Rhodiola’s effects on physical performance was an adaptogenic effect, and not caused by flooding the body with steroids, scientists looked for the kind of hyper-masculinization you see in steroid freaks at the gym: no such signs were found.

Accordingly, Rhodiola extracts improve the organism’s capacity to stand up against a wide variety of stressors, including heat shock, heavy metal exposure, free radical assault, high altitude, terpentine, liver-damaging doses of adriamycin, and exhaustive exercise. Another example is Rhodiola’s ability to protect the heart from stress. When lab animals are subjected to extreme cold or to massive doses of the stress hormone adrenaline, the regular, controlled beating of their heart is disrupted and the oxygen supply is temporarily cut off. But Rhodiola supplements prevent arrhythmia, reduce the damage to the muscle cells of the heart, and balance the overflow of stress neurotransmitters normally associated with these stressors.

Metabolic Cleanse™

Unique Gastrointestinal Detoxification Formula Incorporating SeaCure®

Metabolic Cleanse™ is a unique gastrointestinal (GI) formula consisting of a beneficial amount of rice, pea and fish proteins synergistically blended with essential amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients important for the healthy maintenance of the entire GI tract. Designed to be a complete GI support formula perfect for detoxification, Metabolic Cleanse™ provides beneficial amounts of L-Glutamine and FOS (fructooligosaccharides) for their important roles in proper GI maintenance. N-acetyl L-cysteine and grape seed extracts have been added for their valuable antioxidant role.

Metabolic Cleanse™ includes SEACURE® the only hydrolyzed fish protein concentrate that has validated clinical relevance for GI health. Studies done on SEACURE® have shown that supplementation with this protein can strengthen intestinal integrity in inflammatory bowel disease patients, as well as reducing the common symptoms of bloating, gas and GI discomfort in irritable bowel syndrome patients. Glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, structure and function of the entire GI tract. Glutamine is perhaps the major energy source for intestinal cells. During physiological stress such as inflammatory bowel disease, the intestinal tract uses very large amounts of glutamine which acts as a vehicle for nitrogen transport. Glutamine-consuming tissues such as the GI tract, liver, and the immune system, use glutamine for the synthesis of nucleotides, proteins, and amino sugars.

Metabolic Cleanse™ also supplies 25% of the nutrition found in Ultra Balance® III, a comprehensive, highly concentrated vitamin-mineral trace element supplement containing more than 30 essential nutritional ingredients. It is a potent antioxidant formula with beta-carotene and natural vitamin E, a high potency B-complex supplement, a significant source of bioavailable calcium and magnesium, and a full-spectrum trace element supplement. Naturally sweetened with organic evaporated cane juice and rice syrup, Metabolic Cleanse™ contains no artificial colours or preservatives and is lactose and gluten free.

Vita-Kids™

Children’s Chewable Multivitamin & Mineral

Vita-Kids™ is a great tasting, chewable multiple vitamin-mineral-trace element supplement formulated for children ages four and up. The unique teddy bear shaped Vita-Kids™ chewable tablets provide 27 vitamins, minerals and trace elements in bioavailable forms and nutritionally meaningful amounts.

Vita-Kids™ is more than just another children’s multivitamin-mineral supplement. Research shows that above RDA amounts of many vitamins may have significant positive effects on the structure and function of growing bodies. Compared to major brands of children’s chewable multivitamins, the convenient chewable tablets of Vita-Kids™ provide several times the levels of the important antioxidant vitamins C and E. Vita-Kids™ also delivers significantly more than the levels of most B-vitamins of brand-name vitamins, and provides easily absorbable calcium and magnesium, as well as a full spectrum of bioavailable trace elements. In fact, Vita-Kids™ is one of the most complete children’s chewable multivitamin/mineral formulas on the market. In contrast to typical children’s vitamins, vitamin D is intentionally kept low, because it can be potentially toxic in high amounts. Vita-Kids™ uses only the purest, most hypoallergenic ingredients and contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

Endurlyte

Electrolyte – Endurance Formula

Endurlyte provides a great-tasting combination of vitamins, and synergistic nutrients in the specific ratio required for electrolyte and energy levels. Vital body fluids are lost during athletic training, air travel and moderate alcohol consumption. Sever fluid and protein losses occur with diarrhea, resulting in a slower recovery time and extreme fatigue. Replacement of fluids and electrolytes is crucial in order to restore mitochondrial balance. Endurlyte is indicated in the maintenance of energy levels, to delay the onset of fatigue during strenuous exercise, and to help maximize endurance and minimize muscle cramping and labour contractions. Endurlyte is an excellent electrolyte replacement, especially during periods of stress and anxiety. Product ideal for vegans.

Multi Cal Mag Liquid

Liquid Calcium-Magnesium Formula

Multi Cal Mag Liquid provides a unique combination of elemental calcium, magnesium, and a balanced amount of macrominerals and organic-sourced microminerals in a liquid colloidal form, for the maintenance and support of the musculo-skeletal and nervous systems. Studies show that skeletal and connective tissues require adequate amounts of absorbable calcium, magnesium and trace minerals for proper nerve conduction and for energy production. Multi Cal Mag Liquid is indicated for the formation of strong teeth and bones, dental procedures, growth spurts, fatigue, nervousness, insomnia and osteoporosis, and is an excellent adjunct to vegetarian and vegan diets. This great tasting almond-flavoured formula is ideal for children and adults who dislike or have difficulty swallowing pills. Product ideal for vegans.

Liquid B Complex

Liquid Vitamin B Complex

Liquid B Complex is a great tasting, natural cherry-flavoured preparation of B-complex vitamins formulated specifically in the optimal ratio required by the body to metabolize proteins, fats and carbohydrates. B-complex vitamins supply cells with energy and nutrients, making them vital for proper adrenal, immune and nervous system function, especially during periods of prolonged stress. Studies show that B-complex vitamins are better absorbed when taken away from other vitamins and minerals. Liquid B complex is utilized instantly creating an immediate impact on the neurological system. Liquid B complex is indicated for insomnia, stress, premenstrual syndrome, adrenal insufficiency, chronic fatigue, viral and bacterial infections; and for proper endocrine, immune and nervous system functions. Product ideal for vegans.

Berberis Formula

Antiviral – Antibacterial Formula

Berberis Formula combines standardized extracts with whole, fresh herbs to ensure the high alkaloid content of berberine, oxyacanthine and columbamine, known for their antibacterial, antiviral, and antiparasitic properties. Research shows that environmental pollutants, lack of exercise and inadequate nutrition can lead to increased allergies, and parasitic and bacterial infections which, in turn, release toxins into cells, damaging tissue and leading to chronic degenerative disease. Berberis formula is indicated for parasitic, bacterial and viral infections, including candidiasis, and yeast, urinary tract and bladder infections, intestinal flu, streptococcus and staphylococcus. The capsules are 100% pure vegetable-sourced. Product ideal for vegans.

Berry DHA

Liquid EPA-DPA Formula

Berry DHA is a great tasting, berry-flavored, water-soluble pharmaceutical-grade fish oil combined with anthocyanins, or powerful antioxidants, to provide a high ratio of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) over eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) required for healthy brain function and for proper neural development from pregnancy to adulthood. This complex manufacturing process eliminated environmental pollutants and allows for the absorption of high concentrations of EPA and DHA without gastric distress. A patented lipid emulsification and micro-encapsulation process is used resulting in faster and greater absorption of long-chain fatty acids. Sublingually absorbed anthocyanins enhance immune function and protect cells from oxidative stress and damage. Studies show that DHA plays a vital role in the functioning of the retina and the central nervous system, and it helps repair and regenerate neural tissue. EPA is important for the regulation of blood pressure, blood clotting, and immune and inflammatory responses. Berry DHA is indicated for neurovegetative conditions such as autism and schizophrenia; for all cardiovascular disorders; and for free radical damage and cataracts. Berry DHA is a unique mixed berry and fruit concentrate exclusively formulated for palatability making it ideal for children and adults who dislike fish odour and emulsified for individuals who have difficulty absorbing fats due to digestive dysfunction.

Fruit EFA

Emulsified EPA-DHA Formula

Fruit EFA is a unique fruit-flavoured, water-soluble and great tasting preparation of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which are essential for cardiovascular and neurological health. Studies show EPA is important for the regulation of blood pressure, blood clotting, and immune and inflammatory responses. DHA plays a vital role in the function of the central nervous system and the retina, and in the repair and regeneration of neural tissue. The health and integrity of the nervous system, including the brain, relies on properly formed neural tissue. The brain, an organ highly concentrated in lipids, undergoes rapid growth and development beginning in the third trimester and continuing through childhood. Fruit EFA is indicated in all cardiovascular disorders, including congestive heart disease, hypertriglyceremia and high blood pressure; and for neurovegetative conditions such as autism and schizophrenia. This patented lipid emulsification and micro-encapsulation process leads to a faster and greater absorption of long-chain fatty acids. Fruit EFA is in a base of orange, mango, banana and pineapple purees along with prebiotic oligosaccharides making it ideal for children and adults who dislike fish odour.

GLA 130 Primrose Oil

Essential Fatty Acids Formula

GLA 130 Primrose Oil provides a highly concentrated amount of gamma-linolenic and linoleic acids which are necessary for the support of normal cell structure and body function. Essential fatty acids are precursors for the series I prostaglandins which are need for T-lymphocyte function and for improving kidney function. Deficiency in essential fatty acids may cause hardening of the arteries and heart, leading to cardiovascular disease. GLA 130 Primrose Oil is indicated for conditions associated with the cardiovascular system, including arteriosclerosis, high and low blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels and vascular fragility; for premenstrual symptoms and rheumatoid arthritis; and for skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.
