Deal of the Week: 20% off Colorado Nutrition Lutein – 20mg 120 Vcaps

Lutein is an antioxidant found in many plants. It is from the carotenoid family, which consists of naturally occurring fat-soluble pigments in plants. It’s basically a yellow pigment. It is the main carotenoid found in the macula, a tiny part of the retina responsible for central vision.

Lutein has been shown effective in the treatment of cataracts.1

Lutein works extremely well in protecting the retina against sunlight damage.2 Supplementation with 6 mg of Lutein daily may decrease the occurrence of macular degeneration by more than 50%.3

Most Americans do not get enough Lutein in their diets. Research has suggested 6 to 20 mg of Lutein per day are needed to realize its health benefits. Is Lutein widely available in doses of up to 20 mg or more? It is in a variety of nutritional supplements, fortified foods and beverages for people wanting to supplement their dietary intake of Lutein.

Colorado Nutrition Lutein contains 20mg of elemental Lutein. Lutein powder typically contains between 5% and 10% elemental Lutein in it. Beware when purchasing Lutein if the manufacturer does not state how the 20mg. is derived. If they are putting 20 mg. of Lutein powder at 5% elemental Lutein the product would really only contain 1mg. of elemental Lutein. Colorado Nutrition is a brand you can trust!

Deal of the Week: CN Alpha Lipoic Acid 200mg 120-Vcaps

The same product mentioned in Readers Digest article “New Pill That Stops Aging.”

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that is soluble in both fat and water. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an important component in the energy production process in the cells. Alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that assists in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-coA. Acetyl-coA is the beginning point for the Krebs cycle, one of the body’s main energy production cycles, which produces the high-energy molecule ATP. Alpha-lipoic acid supports the immune system and also supports healthy liver function.

Alpha Lipoic Acid and Diabetes

Alpha Lipoic Acid is prescribed in Germany for adult onset of diabetes. There it has been shown to help for the following reasons:

Recommended supplementation for diabetic neuropathy is 800mg/day

Preserve brain function in aging adults. Results from animal studies indicate that alpha-lipoic acid may improve long-term memory. Much remains to be learned about whether this occurs in humans, but it may be worth trying this powerful antioxidant when a disease such as Alzheimer’s starts to erode memory. In addition, alpha-lipoic acid holds promise for preserving brain cells following a stroke or other type of trauma that restricts blood flow to the brain.

Deal of the Week: TerraCeutics Joint Savior – 180 Capsules

Joint Savior™ is a comprehensive formula designed to help with joint mobility, inflammation, and pain.

Joint Savior™ contains Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM, along with two other effective ingredients CMO (Cetyl Myristoleate) and Hyaluronic Acid.

Glucosamin & Chondroitin have been a popular combination for joint support for the past 10 years. Glucosamine comes from the exoskeletons of crabs, shrimp & other shellfish. Glucosamine Sulfate has been used clinically in Europe since 1960’s and became popular in the US during the mid-1990’s after the release of the book “The Arthritis Cure” by Jason Theodosakis. Today Glucosamine is a very popular nutritional supplement for Arthritis.

The largest clinical trial on Glucosamine Sulfate & Chondroitin Sulfate is being conducted by the National Institute of Health (NIH) with over 1,500 people involved. The studies found positive results with a 25% improvement as the placebo group. The positive results of the clinical trial not only showed a reduction in pain and swelling but also when combined with Chondroitin it slowed the progression of the disease and helped rebuild damaged cartilage.

Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane (MSM)

MSM came from the research that was done on DMSO by Dr. Stanley W. Jacobs at the Oregon Health Science University. He learned that MSM was a stable metabolite of DMSO which was very stable and odorless.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted. Fifty men and women, 40-76 years of age with knee OA pain were enrolled in an outpatient medical center. MSM produced significant decreases in WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index visual analogue scale) pain and physical function impairment.

Cetyl Myristoleate (CMO)

Harry Diehl, a research chemist at the NIH, discovered Cetyl Myristoleate after spending 2 years trying to isolate the substance that protected Swiss albino mice from getting arthritis. Harry Diehl proved that cetyl myristoleate circulates in the blood of mice that made them immune to arthritis. Harry Diehl was so ecstatic about his discovery he approached many large pharmaceutical companies to conduct human clinical trials on CMO. None of the companies were interested, however, because CMO was a natural substance and they would not be able to patent it.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (also called Hyaluronan) occurs in large amounts in many of the places that people with connective tissue disorders have problems such as the joints, the eyes, the skin, and heart valves. Hyaluronic acid is needed to cushion and lubricate joints, eyes, skin, and heart valves.

Deal of the Week: AN Super Citrimax – 500mg 180 Capsules

AN Super Citrimax – 500mg 180 Capsules

Lose weight for the NEW YEAR! with Super CitriMax®

In 1991 Citrin was introduced to the health food industry as the first all natural plant extract standardized for hydroxycitric acid. This unique extract comes from premium hand harvested Garcinia cambogia fruits grown in selected regions of southern India. The active principle of Citrin, hydroxycitric acid, is in the rind of Garcinia cambogia.

HCA stands for hydroxycitric acid. Hoffman-LaRoche, an international pharmaceutical company and Brandeis University researchers began investigating HCA in the early 1970’s They found that the (-) form of HCA was a potent and competitive inhibitor of citrate lyase, an enzyme found primarily in the liver which is vital in regulating fat metabolism

Fatty acids are the building blocks of fats and lipids. At the cellular level, (-)HCA molecules “trick” the citrate lyase enzyme. The receptor sites of citrate lyase enzymes are filled with (-)HCA. This means fewer fatty acids are synthesized, making less fat available for cellular storage. This results in less body fat build-up in the liver and adipose (fat) tissue. Increased amounts of energy at the cellular level are then available to more rapidly degrade free fatty acids.

HCA suppresses appetite thus reducing food intake. When you consume food the body begins breaking down carbohydrates into glucose (a necessary form of sugar). The liver functions to ensure that the blood continually has adequate glucose to fuel the brain with energy . Excess glucose molecules would normally break down into fat or cholesterol . However (-) HCA temporarily inhibits the citrate lyase enzyme and excess glucose is converted to glycogen in the liver . When glucose and glycogen reach a certain level, the brain gets a signal of “fullness”, suppressing appetite and reducing the desire for more food. The benefits of Citrin are two-fold 1.).inhibits the synthesis of fatty acids in the liver , and 2.) it promotes an increased availability of glycogen in the liver, thus sending a “full” signal to the brain sooner.

Our Citrimax (Citrin and Chromium)

Independent laboratory analysis, using the highly accurate HPLC method, demonstrates Super Citrimax contains a minimum of 60% hydrocycitric acid.

    DEAL OF THE WEEK: NRx Picamilon 100mg 60caps

    • Improves learning & Concentration
    • Promotes Relaxation
    • Relieves Stress, Tension & Pressure
    • Helps Relieve Headaches
    • Aids in recovery from Stress and Fatigue
    Picamilon is useful for mitigating the negative effects of stress, providing a feeling of tranquilization without the feeling of sedation that can come from other drugs. Picamilon’s effects can be felt quickly and last for up to six hours. Consistent use can show a noticeable improvement in concentration and an increase in energy and endurance.

    Picamilon is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it splits into GABA and niacin. The GABA then stimulates GABA receptors producing a calming effect. GABA is the main inhibiting neurotransmitter that regulates neuronal excitability. The niacin causes vasodilation, or a widening of the blood vessels, which can lead to the relief of headaches and lower the blood pressure.

    *Picamilon has been used in Russia for years to treat depression, anxiety, glaucoma, headache, and brain injury.
