5 HTP (5 Hydroxy Tryptophan from Griffonia)
5-Hydroxytryptophan is extracted from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. 5 HTP is a precursor to the "feel good" neurotransmitter and enhances serotonin and melatonin production, increasing levels for sleep enhancement, decreased sugar cravings, and better stress management. Thorne research prepared this product without fillers and flowing agents that can interfere with absorption. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is the intermediate metabolite produced when the body converts the essential amino acid L-tryptophan to serotonin. Serotonin levels in the body are associated with the regulation of sleep, mood, seasonal depression, aggression, appetite regulation, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. it has also been helpful for symptoms of fibromyalgia and the severity and duration of migraine headaches. Supplementing with 5-HTP to facilitate serotonin production is preferable to supplementing with L-tryptophan because, unlike L-tryptophan, 5-HTP cannot be shunted into niacin or protein production. Supplementation with 5-HTP bypasses the conversion of L-tryptophan into 5-HTP by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, the rate-limiting step in the synthesis of serotonin (and a step that can be inhibited by a number of factors, including stress, insulin resistance, increasing age, and deficiencies of vitamin C, folate, and iron). 5-HTP is well absorbed when taken orally, with about 70 percent ending up in the bloodstream. 5-HTP easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and effectively increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. 5-HTP has been shown to have a beneficial impact on mood, discomfort associated with fatigue, sleep, and carbohydrate craving. Numerous studies of individuals with negative mood status have shown significant positive response with 50-300 mg of 5-HTP daily. To further facilitate serotonin production, Thorne Research's 5-HTP formula contains pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, the active form of vitamin B6 -a necessary cofactor in the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use for any individual currently being treated with an SSRI, MAO inhibitor, or other antidepressant medication.

5 MTHF
5-MTHF (Folate 1 mg (1 000 mcg) the most biologically active form of folate* a breakthrough in folate supplementation the most bioavailable, active form of folate* an excellent source of folate for pregnant women and supports optimal cardiovascular and nerve function* Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body.* This is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body's needs. Furthermore, up to 60-percent of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. Because deficiencies of folic acid have been linked to low-birth-weight infants and neural tube defects, folic acid requirements double during pregnancy.* The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age because the biggest need is during the first trimester, when a woman may not even be aware she is pregnant. In concert with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor involved in the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine.* Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical conversion processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin, and DNA.* It is important for women of childbearing age to get enough folic acid – not just those who are planning to become pregnant. Only 50 percent of pregnancies are planned, so any woman who could become pregnant should get enough folic acid every day – especially before conception and during early pregnancy. Folic acid is needed for the formation of red blood cells, and for the prevention of folic acid anemia. This nutrient may help treat depression and anxiety as well as cervical dysplasia and prevent nutritional deficiencies from ongoing birth control use. Folate can be combined with a Vitamin B complex for added support.

ACE + Selenium
ACE plus selenium is an antioxidant blend which act as ‘free-radical scavengers'. Free radicals are common in the body, arising through a variety of mechanisms and can lead to cellular damage. Some are generated in the body as part of normal energy-producing processes, some are generated by pollutants such as air pollution, and some are generated by lifestyle factors such as excess dietary fats, cigarette smoke, and alcohol ingestion. an effective combination of nutrients to help maintain a healthy immune system. Key Points and Benefits the average person may not be getting enough selenium due to low levels in our food and soil. Selenium enhances the utilisation of vitamin E and is also required in the body for the formation of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, a very powerful natural antioxidant which acts as the body's final defence against hydrogen peroxide and lipid peroxides in the cell membrane (a common site of free radical damage). In the immune system, selenium is involved in protecting white blood cells from free radical damage and also appears to increase the production of antibodies. Vitamin A, C and E are essential for a healthy immune system and the normal growth and reproduction of cellular tissues. The combination of antioxidants may help to maintain the strength and integrity of collagen and other connective tissues, including that of the blood vessels, with overall benefits for the eyes and the cardiovascular system. Vitamins C, beta carotene and our natural source Vitamin E are well documented for their powerful antioxidant activity and are the subject of clinical trials worldwide.

B Complex
The B complex vitamins are co-enzymes involved in energy production, they assist in maintaining healthy nerves, skin, vision and healthy hair; as well as enhancing brain functions and promoting endurance and stamina. The B vitamins are an important supplement for anyone encountering mental or physical stress due to overwork and assist in memory and brain function. A vitamin B complex is a useful addition to anyone encountering a hormone imbalance, PMS or menopausal symptoms. The B vitamins are essential for liver function and hormone metabolism in the liver. B vitamins are most effective when taken together as a whole complex and are water soluble, meaning that there is no concern of cumulative side effects, (what the body does not need will be voided out), however when the body is under stress the B vitamins are often depleted, thus supplementation is important through times of elevated stress. Caffeine and certain medications, such as oral contraceptives and cardiovascular drugs, (diuretics, ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers and cholesterol lowering drugs) deplete the body of all B vitamins, creating a deficit state. Bio Med's High Potency B Compound contains 50 mg of the B's, insuring optimal levels for better overall health - in an easy-to-swallow capsule form.
