Superior Nutrients Powerful Results

We use our knowledge of the human body and understanding of clinically proven treatments to design therapies that fulfill their promise and deliver powerful results. Get to know all of our nutrients and the benefits that each deliver.

Commonly known as Vitamin C, this powerful antioxidant has an impressive array of health benefits. Not only does it reduce the risk of chronic disease, but it also strengthens the body’s natural defenses, effectively boosting immunity, decreasing inflammation, and supporting cellular health and collagen production. Vitamin C also increases energy levels, reduces fatigue, protects against memory loss, and supports the adrenal glands during times of stress.

An essential trace mineral, Chromium supports the body in the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Chromium also enhances the function of insulin in the body, helping to normalize blood sugar levels for sustained energy and a satiated appetite.

Found in the superfood turmeric, Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Curcumin helps to: balance the immune response; boost cellular health and recovery; aid in detoxification; and enhance brain function, thereby promoting mental clarity and whole body harmony. Curcumin is fat-soluble with a high rate of metabolization, so the bioavailability is extremely low when taken orally.

Dexpanthenol is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a pivotal role in the body’s energy levels and cellular health. With potent anti-inflammatory properties, B5 enhances gut health, improves skin barrier function, stimulates skin regeneration, and promotes wound healing.

An anti-aging secret weapon, Glutathione protects the body from free radical damage caused by oxidative stress. Eliminating toxins and pollutants from the body, this powerful antioxidant and detoxifier is essential for proper immune system function and cellular repair, with noticeable effects on skin, hair, and nail health.

Glutamine is an amino acid that helps support immune function by modifying the immune system’s response to a threat. Glutamine is also important in maintaining the integrity of the intestinal lining, thereby preventing bacteria and other foreign substances in the GI tract from entering the bloodstream.

Manganese is an essential trace mineral that serves as a cofactor for many enzymes in the body. Manganese dependent enzymes have important functions in carbohydrate metabolism, glucose production, collagen formation, and the antioxidant defense network. The antioxidant defense network is a synergistic combination of antioxidants that provide ongoing protection against free radical damage, keeping oxidative stress at bay.

Magnesium is a powerhouse mineral essential to the many biochemical and physiological processes the body depends on for long-term health.

Methylcobalamin, the most metabolically active form of Vitamin B12, is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in brain and nervous system function and red blood cell production. The benefits of B12 include increased energy levels, enhanced mental clarity, improved immune system function, and regulation of sleep, mood, and appetite cycles. This critical micronutrient is especially important for those following a vegan or vegetarian diet.

Methylfolate is the biologically active form of Folic Acid. Needed by red blood cells to properly oxygenate the blood and maintain normal blood pressure, B9 is also essential for the formation of the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin in the brain. Another key function of B9 is the prevention of neural tube defects in early pregnancy.
