Our modern, stressful lives lower levels of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin depletion leads to food cravings, depression, and other mood disorders. The pharmaceutical industry has responded to the serotonin crisis by creating a wide array of medications which seek to restore serotonin metabolism. A better approach may be to replete serotonin naturally by using its precursor, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). Naturally restoring serotonin levels may help promote healthy mood levels and may also reduce food cravings.

The name Aloe 200x refers to the fact that it takes 200 pounds of the Aloe vera inner gel fillets to make one pound of this nourishing aloe extract. This concentrated aloe is made with the intent to retain as much of the plant's natural makeup as possible. This is done by never filtering the product, thus leaving the natural component as a whole, and by never letting the product reach a temperature over 99° Fahrenheit. This low-heat dehydration system ensures that the long polysaccharide chains remain intact, as they are found in nature. The High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) found that this process is successful in retaining a broad spectrum of polysaccharide chains (mannan molecules) which are the hardest to preserve. When our aloe was analyzed, the concentration of polysaccharide chains were shown to range in size from 140,000 daltons to over 1,000,000 daltons. According to research, the longer chains (chains over 800,000 daltons) possess an immune modulating action within the body, and further, the longest aloe polysaccharides, those measuring over 1,000,000 daltons, have the most significant immune stimulating effectiveness.
Allicillin is the therapeutic ingredient produced by the crushing of garlic. Garlic has been used therapeutically for centuries and has thousands of studies documenting its effectiveness in treating everything from the common cold to resistant bacterial infections.
Most tocotrienol products are derived from palm oil or rice bran oil. Tocotrienol and tocopherol concentrates, referred to as tocotrienol-rich fractions or TRFs, from rice or palm typically contain 25% to 50% tocopherols. The most effective concentrates shown to lower plasma cholesterol and oxidative indicators in numerous human studies were those with low tocopherols and high tocotrienols. This new Annatto Tocotrienols formula is tocopherol-free, making it extremely potent and unique. This tocotrienolonly formula is extracted from food-grade annatto from the South American annatto bean. It typically contains 90% delta-tocotrienol and 10% gamma-tocotrienol. These two tocotrienols have been proven in studies to be the two most potent, whereas alpha-tocotrienol is five-fold less potent. This unique make-up is not found in rice bran or palm oil sourced tocotrienols.

They cannot be synthesized by the body and must be consumed. Once inside the body, BCAAs are quickly taken up and transported - with the help of insulin - to the muscles where a full 30 percent of the protein found in muscle tissue is composed of BCAAs. After they are consumed, insulin helps transport the BCAA's into the muscle cells. Regular exercise draws down the BCAAs reserves, with the result that their levels will need to be replenished. People who participate in intense periods of physical activity may want to take BCAAs.
Betaine Hydrochloride is a source of hydrochloric acid, which is our stomach's digestive juice. Its main function is to activate the enzyme, pepsin, which breaks down proteins. Not only is HCl needed for proper protein digestion, but it also prevents bacteria and yeast from growing in the stomach.

The calcium in Calcium Malate Chelate is now fully chelated to glycine and malic acid, providing a combination of the two most health promoting and most absorbable forms of calcium available. Malic acid is found naturally in apples and other fruits and vegetables. Glycine is a very low molecular weight amino acid found in foods and can be synthesized by the body. Calcium can be perfectly chelated to two moles of glycine. In a study performed by Professor Robert P. Heaney, MD from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska, comparing absorption rates of many common forms of calcium, it was observed that Albion's calcium completely and properly chelated to glycine has far greater absorption than calcium citrate, calcium hydroxyapetite, calcium carbonate and even greater absorption than calcium from milk. (Heaney, R.P. et al Calcit Tissue Int (1990) 46: 300-304.) True chelates are not only absorbed better than calcium salts, but they are retained better in body tissue such as bone. Chelated calcium is better tolerated than non-bound calcium salts as they do not cause the milk-alkali syndrome which can cause stomach upset and kidney problems. Also, the ligands the minerals are chelated to is important as the chelated compound will remain chelated throughout the gut and into the bloodstream. Mineral salts from non-true chelates break apart far sooner, usually in the stomach, leaving the body with the extra compound to deal with. Ionic minerals interfere with the absorption of other minerals including phosphorus and iron whereas chelated minerals do not. Also, vitamin D is added which helps to resorb calcium that otherwise would be excreted.
Calcium and magnesium work together for healthy nerve and muscle function. They are often used together as a nighttime supplement for better sleep. They help calm the nerves and muscles.
In some people, calcium can be constipating and too much magnesium can promote loose bowels. If you become constipated add more magnesium or lower the amount of calcium. If you have loose stools, either increase calcium or lower magnesium.

CarniClear™ supersaturated carnitine liquid is a pleasant naturally flavored non-acidic liquid form of carnitine, conveniently delivered in two sizes: 8 oz economy and 1 oz for travel. This product is both the most convenient, and most affordable way of delivering the multi-gram dosing of carnitine that is most often prescribed by health care practitioners.
In addition to the pure base L-carnitine, CarniClear™ contains small amounts of highly purified glycerine and 500 mcg of vitamin B12 and 100 mg of vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid). Vitamin B5 is added to support a necessary step in fat metabolism, the synthesis of Coenzyme A, which is essential for the transport of fat by l-carnitine. Vitamin B12 is an important cofactor in many metabolic pathways, including endogenous carnitine synthesis. Diets low in animal meat are very deficient in Vitamin B12, as well as carnitine.
L-Carnitine is a compound naturally occurring in all foods but significant amounts are only found in dark meats (due to high concentration of mitochondria), for example: lamb (190mg/4 oz), beef (143mg/4 oz), poultry (13mg/4 oz), fish (3-10mg/4 oz).
Carnitine supplementation may be needed especially for vegetarian diets or when dark meats are consumed in small amounts because neither preformed carnitine nor its precursor amino acids are ingested in adequate amounts to support optimal health.
Contains concentrated amounts of chlorophyllin to provide the first line of protection against dietary and environmental toxins.

The chromium in Chromium Synergy™ is fully chelated to glycine and nicotinate for enhanced absorption. All the nutrients in this formula play different important roles in insulin function. It is in a base of cinnamon powder also known for its ability to assist blood sugar control.
CLA has been found to promote the body's natural fat metabolism making it easier to get your body in shape. Several studies investigating the effects of CLA on weight management and body composition confirm this. Studies show that supplementation with CLA aids in weight management by promoting fat loss. When weight is gained, or regained after a diet, CLA has been found to promote muscle growth as well as to inhibit the growth of fat cells improving the shape of the body.
Coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that functions as a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from damage by free radicals. Scientific studies suggest that coenzyme Q10 offers protective benefits for heart health and is required for the production of energy. While the body produces coenzyme Q10, the amount produced decreases with age. Therefore, people who have poor nutrition and lifestyle habits, use statin drugs, have heart problems and are insulin resistant may wish to take coenzyme Q10.
When you think of oils in your diet, the first words that come to mind might be "fat", "bad", and "unhealthy". You may equate oils with being overweight, an increased risk for heart disease, having high blood pressure and cholesterol, and maybe even a bad complexion. Imagine a good oil that can actually do just the opposite by improving your body's cholesterol levels, enhancing your skin, and supporting your overall health. Coconut oil has a unique role in the diet as an important physiologically functional food. The health and nutritional benefits that can be derived from consuming coconut oil have been recognized in many parts of the world for centuries. (25.00)
Cosamin DS is a blend of two powerful "joint friendly" nutrients. It features glucosamine, which is a basic building block for cartilage, joint fluid and other connective tissue. The body uses glucosamine to build the fluids that lubricate the joints.
In addition, chondroitin has been added to this supplement because it helps produce compounds called proteoglycans that also form the structure of connective tissue. Chondroitin attracts water and essential nutrients into connective tissue. The high water content contributes to the elastic and shock-absorbing qualities of cartilage.
CraveArrest is designed to balance the production of the major neurotransmitters, including serotonin and dopamine, that affect cravings of all kinds.

DHEA is a hormone secreted primarily by the adrenal gland. It acts as a substance in the synthesis of other important hormones and plays a key role in a variety of physiological responses.
DIM increases 2-hydroxyestrone and therefore improves the 2/16 hydroxyestrone ratio, making it very protective for women and men at high risk for this condition. Research by Bradlow has shown that DIM also reduces availability of 4-androstenedione for aromatization to estrone, a more dangerous form of estrogen. He concludes that DIM is more potent than I3C at protecting against breast cancer due to decreased formation of 16 alpha-hydroxyestrone from estrone. DIM supplementation improves the estrogen ratio in a favorable direction that protects both men and women without the negative effect of raising 4 hydroxyestrogen as seen with I3C. DIM does not block ovulation the way I3C does, and can be used safely along with Tamoxifen, unlike I3C. DIM should be considered first line therapy for hormone imbalances that can lead to negative conditions such as PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, fibroid tumors, menopausal symptoms, weight problems and the list goes on. Recent research is positive so far that DIM improves weight loss resistance due to hormonal imbalance.
EndoTrim is a comprehensive endocrine balancing formula designed to promote optimal insulin, leptin and cortisol balance. This formula is for anyone wishing to improve body composition.

Lipoic Acid Supreme is a mixture of high dose lipoic acid, biotin, and taurine, which all support blood sugar and insulin balance. Lipoic acid increases the need for biotin by lowering levels of biotin dependent enzymes. Thus Lipoic Acid should always be taken with biotin. Lipoic Acid Supreme contains high dose lipoic acid, biotin, and taurine which all support blood sugar and insulin balance, making a great combination. Lipoic Acid has been extensively researched for its applications in diabetes, blood sugar metabolism, heavy metal detoxification, liver health, hepatitis, and diabetic neuropathy. Lipoic acid has also been studied for its effects on the aging process and in the prevention of wrinkling by protecting collagen in the skin. Most importantly, it has been found to be an essential nutrient for diabetics to optimize the function of the insulin receptors.
L-Carnitine is essential for maintaining a healthy metabolism by transporting fatty acids to cells as fuel. In addition to carrying fat, it helps to decrease cravings for carbohydrates. L-Carnitine is naturally present in the body and is especially concentrated in the heart and muscle tissue. People who are insulin resistant with "burned out" adrenal glands, have carbohydrate cravings, follow a strict vegetarian diet or have heart disease may want to supplement with L-Carnitine.
L-Glutamine is an amino acid, which is essential for the health of the immune system and digestive tract. It is very reparative and healing in the gut where it strengthens the mucosal cells and in turn helps leaky gut and sugar cravings. Glutamine also helps promote optimal muscle growth and strength and has shown to be particularly useful in helping prevent muscle wasting.
An amino acid that helps decrease cravings for alcohol and sugar, enhances mental focus, supports gastrointestinal health (by reducing inflammation and food-related allergies) and assists with wound healing and cell repair.
Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that plays a myriad of roles in promoting health. Dietary sources of taurine are meat and seafood, especially shellfish such as muscles, clams and oysters. Those who do not eat these foods regularly, especially vegetarians, may be at risk for taurine deficiency. The scientific community is still in disagreement as to whether humans make enough taurine in their own metabolism to meet their needs. Also, elevated levels of homocysteine is a sign that the body may be having difficulty making taurine. Because taurine is essential for heart function, immune function, glucose metabolism, and nervous system health, low levels of taurine should be avoided and corrected with dietary changes and/or supplementation.
L-Theanine has been discovered as the biologically active ingredient of green tea responsible for promoting relaxation. It provides helpful relaxation support without causing drowsiness and easing occasional nervous tension and irritability. L-Theanine is also useful for supporting healthy cellular function.
L-Serine is an amino acid needed for the proper metabolism of fats and fatty acids, needed for the growth of muscle and the maintenance of a healthy immune system.
The magnesium in magnesium malate chelate is now fully chelated to glycine and malic acid, providing a combination of the two most health promoting and most absorbable forms of magnesium available. Malic acid is found naturally in apples and other fruits and vegetables. Glycine is a very low molecular weight amino acid found in foods and can be synthesized by the body. Magnesium can be perfectly chelated to two moles of glycine.
True chelates are not only absorbed better than magnesium salts, but they are retained better in body tissue such as bone. Chelated magnesium is better tolerated than non-bound magnesium salts. Also, the ligands the minerals are chelated to is important as the chelated compound will remain chelated throughout the gut and into the bloodstream. Mineral salts from non-true chelates break apart far sooner, usually in the stomach, leaving the body with the extra compound to deal with. Ionic minerals interfere with the absorption of other minerals including phosphorus and iron whereas chelated minerals do not.

Phosphatidyl serine (PS) is a nutrient essential for optimal brain a function. Because PS is crucial for the overall health of brain cells, research on PS has shown that it benefits a wide range of brain activities such as mental focus, memory recall, and performance on tasks.* There are no foods rich in PS, except for brain, so PS supplementation is the only way to increase your levels of this valuable brain nutrient. PS is an essential component of all neuronal membranes. Human research suggests that PS may help support overall brain wellness.
In order to assimilate vitamins and nutrients from our food and supplements, we must be able to digest them properly. Plant Enzyme Digestive Formula is a combination of the most important enzymes for digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Applications include gas and bloating after meals, constipation, and a feeling of fullness after eating only a small quantity of food. Studies show that the foods in the typical American diet are devoid of natural enzymes and do little to help secrete our own production of enzymes. Thus, foods do not get digested well and nutrients from food are poorly absorbed. Poor digestive health can lead to many other disorders including asthma, osteoporosis, food allergies, depression and arthritis. Many health experts agree that regular consumption of enzymes and enzyme rich foods is a key to vibrant health, disease prevention, and anti-aging. Every cell in your body needs enzymes for its biochemical functions, thus a deficiency will accelerate the aging process! Plant Enzyme Digestive Formula does not contain any animal products. This formula is in vegi-caps and is suitable for vegetarians.

Probiotic Synergy takes advantage of a new patented delivery technology. It is designed to ensure that the bacteria survive passage through the stomach to the small intestine. The polysaccharide matrix is a delivery system involving gel-forming polysaccharides that are insoluble at a low (acidic) pH like that in the stomach. When this capsule enters the stomach, it begins to dissolve in the gastric juice. The polysaccharides in the gel re-hydrate and form an insoluble gel matrix. The protected bacteria move their way to the small intestine where the increased, more alkaline pH causes the probiotics to release-right where we want them. There is now no need to overstuff the capsules to account for die-off of organisms due to their typical intolerance to stomach acid. Refrigeration is not recommended or required (as to avoid moisture accumulation). Room temperature is ideal. Keep out of extreme temperatures-especially heat.

Essential daily products in one easy packet, taken twice daily:
Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid synthesized in the body from the essential amino acid phenylalanine. The typical dietary amount provided by a 3 oz portion of animal protein is 0.3-1 g of tyrosine. Tyrosine is the precursor amino acid from which the body makes Dopamine (with vitamin B6 as cofactor), which is then converted to Nor-epinephrine (with vitamin C as cofactor ) and then to Epinephrine (with SamE as cofactor). Tyrosine competes for uptake with other large neutral amino acids, so in order to maximize absorption from the supplemented Tyrosine into various tissues (such as brain, adrenals, nerves), it should be taken on an empty stomach, or two hours away from a protein containing meal.

Xylitol ("ZY-litol") is a safe and natural sweetener, often called Birch sugar because it is made from Birch Tree bark, and it tastes just like sugar, but has 40% less calories and creates no sugar highs or lows! You can mix it into hot or cold beverages or bake with it using it in the same quantity as you would sugar (i.e. 1 Tbsp sugar= 1 Tbsp Xylitol). Also, Xylitol does not feed intestinal yeast, and does not raise insulin or blood sugar levels. This makes it a perfectly healthy sugar replacement for diabetics, low carbohydrate dieters, and heart disease patients who must keep their sugar consumption to a bare minimum.
Whey Cool, the proprietary non-denatured whey protein concentrate used in PaleoMeal, is produced to maintain the full range of the fragile immune boosting and regenerative components naturally present in fresh raw milk. Whey Cool is produced using proprietary filtration and drying which involves minimal processing. This unique production method ensures that the whey is not subjected to temperatures that would destroy the original components. We do not use cross-flow filtration, microfiltration, ultrafiltration, hydrolyzation or ion exchange methods which denature the original proteins.
This full range, biologically active, complete amino acid profile protein naturally contains an exceptional amount of the critical glutathione precursor covalent bonded cysteine. Additionally it contains the full range and exceptional levels of the most important protein components, which are lactoferrin, immunoglobulins, serum albumin, active peptides and growth factors.
The milk harvested for this product comes from cows that graze on pesticide and chemical-free natural grass pastures. Milk from grass-fed cows has many times higher levels of CLA and contains a proper balance of essential fatty acids. The milking cows are never fed grain or subjected to any growth hormone treatment, chemicals, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, hyperimmunization or injected pathogens.
This whey protein is produced using a unique low temperature drying and filtration method. The vast majority of whey proteins available use high heat pasteurization. High heat does irreversible damage to the majority of the components of milk and may cause intolerance even in individuals who have no history of milk allergies.
