Folic Acid Tablets
The B vitamin folacin, or folic acid, works closely with vitamin B12 to produce red blood cells. Folic acid is vital to proper cell division and prevents damage to cellular DNA, helping to reduce the risk of colon polyps, colorectal cancer and cervical cancer. Many studies show that folic acid also prevents birth defects. Women planning to have children should supplement with 400 micrograms of folic acid daily to prevent neural tube defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly. This amount may also lower homocysteine levels in the blood as high levels of homocysteine are associated with increased risk of heart attack and stroke. "Folic acid is necessary for proper brain function, being concentrated in the spinal and extracellular fluids. It is essential for mental and emotional health...In surveys conducted, it was shown to be one of the nutrients most often deficient in our diets." Folic acid in supplement form is twice as available to the body as the folate found in foods. The vitamin has a low toxicity. A one-thousand-fold increase in the daily requirement may be consumed with no harmful effects. Daily doses of 15 mg are non-toxic. If excess is ingested, the extra is excreted in the urine. Birth control pills increase the body's demand for folic acid and may result in folic acid deficiency. Phenytoin (Dilantin) competes with folic acid for absorption. Prevents birth defects in unborn children. Necessary for proper brain and nervous system function. Helps lower homocysteine levels in the blood. Reduces the risk of colon polyps. Aids in the production of healthy red blood cells.

Glucosamine Sulfate and MSM
Glucosamine and MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) are perhaps the most widely used natural supplements by individuals seeking safe, effective, natural relief from joint pain and inflammation and tissue repair. MSM (Methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is a naturally occurring organic source of sulfur and is a powerful, yet non-toxic therapeutic agent that may help to inhibit pain, lessen inflammation, reduce muscle spasms and soften scar tissue. Glucosamine Sulfate, an amino sugar, stimulates the body's ability to manufacture collagen, repair connective tissue and can help rebuild cartilage lost in a joint due to injury or osteoarthritis. Natural Factors MSM & Glucosamine Sulfate helps ease the pain and promotes the healing process - in easy-to-swallow capsules.

Indole 3 Carbinol
* Featured Product *
* Top Seller *
Indole-3-Carbinol used to support estrogen metabolism, maintains optimal 2-hydroxy/16-hydroxy estrogen ratios, found in cabbage family vegetables, it's a source of DIM offering nutritional support for liver detoxification and made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability. I3C provides key nutritional support for liver detoxification and plays an important role in supporting female reproductive health - particularly related to an estrogen imbalance including breast, endometrial and cervical health. The majority of ingested I3C is absorbed in the small intestine as diindolylmethane (DIM), which is thought to be the primary contributor to I3C's beneficial properties. DIM has been shown to selectively bind to estrogen receptors and may act as an estrogen antagonist at physiological concentration. In the liver, I3C promotes the metabolism of estrogen and increases the ratio of 2-hydroxy estrogen to 16-hydroxy estrogen.* The 2-hydroxy estrogens, less active than the 16-hydroxy estrogens, generally are eliminated more rapidly from the body. One prospective study found postmenopausal women with the most favorable urinary 2:16-hydroxyestrone ratio were most likely to maintain good female health. Used with calcium d glucarate and Crucera SGS.

L Glutamine
L-glutamine (commonly referred to as glutamine) is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream. It is found in high concentration in skeletal muscle and lung, liver, brain, and gastrointestinal tissues. Skeletal muscle contains the greatest intracellular concentration of glutamine, comprising up to 60 percent of total body glutamine stores, and muscle is the primary storage depot and exporter of glutamine to other tissues. However, the gastrointestinal tract is the greatest user of glutamine in the body because glutamine provides the primary fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells that line the walls of the small intestine. Various stressors – such as trauma, infection, malnutrition, chemotherapy, and others – can impact the normal function of the enterocytes of the small intestine by adversely affecting how substances are absorbed. For example, when gut permeability is impaired it can allow large protein molecules to diffuse across the intestine – that would otherwise not – and enter the bloodstream (resulting in a condition called leaky gut syndrome). The body can identify these large protein molecules as foreign and mount an immune reaction against them, which can result in the development of food allergies. In numerous animal studies, in which hyper-permeability of the intestine is experimentally induced, the addition of glutamine improved permeability function as well as the gut's immune function. Under certain circumstances the body's tissues need more glutamine than the amount supplied by diet and internal production. In times of metabolic stress, glutamine is released from the muscles into the bloodstream, where it is transported to the tissues in need but concentration in the skeletal muscles can be affected by various insults, including injury, infection, prolonged stress, malnutrition, and the use of glucocorticoids. In addition, glutamine may provide support of wound healing, immune health, and nutrient support of individuals undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. L Glutamine promotes immune system health, supports a healthy nervous system and is an essential nutrient for wound healing. Glutamine serves as a regulator of acid-base balance and a building block of neurotransmitters in the brain. L-glutamine has several benefits. It can reduce the severity and duration of mouth pain/mucositis caused by chemotherapy, can support the gastro-intestinal tract during chemotherapy, reduce the duration of chemotherapy-induced diarrhea and it can reduce peripheral neuropathy, numbness, pain, tingling.

L Lysine
L-lysine, is an essential amino acid, that cannot be synthesized in the body therefore we need to ingest through our food or through supplementation. Vegetarians can be deficient in lysine because, while meat, poultry, and milk are rich sources of lysine, and proteins in grains and cereals are typically low in lysine. Of the many body functions requiring lysine, some applications include synthesis of connective tissues such as bone, skin, collagen, and elastin; synthesis of carnitine and the resultant conversion of fatty acids to energy; support for healthy growth and development in children; and maintenance of a healthy immune function and the potential to ward off cold sores. An amino acid essential for skin health, energy production, and immune function. Research supports L-Lysine's ability to impede the utilization of L-arginine by some lipid-coated viruses during key phases in their life cycle, which helps to reduce the recurrence, severity and healing time of cold sores, shingles and genital herpes. L-Lysine has also been used for the treatment of canker sores. Taking L-lysine supplements can speed recovery time and reduce the chance of recurrent breakouts of the herpes infection. L-lysine helps improve the absorption of calcium from the digestive tract and prevent loss of calcium in the urine. In so doing, some researchers speculate that L-lysine may help prevent bone loss associated with osteoporosis. It is required for growth and bone development in children, assists in calcium absorption and maintaining the correct nitrogen balance in the body and maintaining lean body mass. Furthermore it is needed to produce antibodies, hormones, enzymes, collagen formation as well as repair of body tissues. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding. For clinic customer renewals only.

Mixed Vitamin E 400 IU
* Featured Product *
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that is comprised of a group of eight compounds: four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Vitamin E activity is most often attributed to the d-alpha tocopherol form; however, research shows that beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols also have significant biological activity in the body. Gamma-tocopherol has specifically been shown to exhibit superior anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Natural Factors Mixed Vitamin E contains d-alpha tocopherol, along with beta-, delta-, and gamma- tocopherols. D-alpha tocopherol, the most potent tocopherol, is natural and is more available for use in the body then its synthetic counterpart dl-alpha tocopherol. Mixed vitamin E tocopherols enhance the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity of a single tocopherol vitamin E. Vitamin E is primarily known for its powerful antioxidant benefits. It helps to protect cell membranes against damage caused by free radicals and prevents the oxidation of LDL (“bad") cholesterol. Oxidized LDL cholesterol contributes to the development of atherosclerosis, which inhibits normal circulation of oxygenated blood to the tissues. Vitamin E is also necessary for the structural and functional maintenance of cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscles. Main selling features Naturally sourced A natural blend of d-beta, d-delta, and d-gamma tocopherols Contains no artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners Free from gluten, soy, and GMOs. Excellent antioxidant that rotects cell membranes, supports nerve and muscle function and provides immune support. May protect against cardiovascular disease Topically: helps eliminate scarring after skin injury or burn
