In a large clinical trial, ashwagandha inhibited levels of the hormone cortisol by up to 26% while maintaining already normal blood sugar levels and lipid profiles.131 Subjects who took the standardized ashwagandha extract reported improvements in energy, sleep and well-being, as well as with general fatigue.4Additional research suggests that ashwagandha confers neuroprotection by supporting the regeneration of axons and dendrites, nerve cell components that support brain and nervous system function.
This potent antioxidant is loaded with health benefits. It’s been shown to help optimize joint, immune, brain, cardiovascular, DNA, and mitochondrial health. Even more impressive, it crosses the blood-eye barrier to support vascular health within the eye. But astaxanthin’s benefits are limited by its low absorption. So Astaxanthin with Phospholipids combines natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of four phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream. Enjoy the full benefits of this powerful antioxidant
Apple polyphenols are powerful antioxidants. They help inhibit glycation and promote a healthy inflammatory response. Apple polyphenols also help support a healthy cardiovascular system, cell division, blood sugar levels already within normal range, and healthy immune function.

Anti-Alcohol with HepatoProtection Complex provides broad-spectrum nutrients designed to combat free radicals, neutralize alcohol metabolites such as acetaldehyde, and support healthy liver function.
Benefits at a Glance
ArthroMax® with Theaflavins & AprèsFlex® provides bioactive theaflavin fractions, along with MSM(methylsulfonylmethane), which contains sulfur components that are critically important in maintaining comfortable joint function.2-4 It also contains FruiteX B® OsteoBoron®, a patented form of boron identical to natural plant forms found in food. Considered more bioavailable than other forms of boron, FruiteX B® OsteoBoron® also supports healthy bones and joints.5-7
Ascorbyl palmitate (AP) is an ester formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid creating a fat-soluble form of vitamin C that can reach tissue areas ascorbic acid cannot.1 This form is synthetic from two compounds; it has been shown to be beneficial for protecting the lipids from peroxidation.1-7 The lipophilic AP is able to cross biological barriers and satisfies the tissue demand for ascorbate better than the hydrophilic form. AP should be considered as the preferred form of transport of ascorbate into neural tissues.8,9
L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in numerous areas of human biochemistry, including ammonia detoxification, hormone secretion, and immune modulation. Arginine is also well known as a precursor to nitric oxide (NO), a key component of endothelial-derived relaxing factor, an endogenous messenger molecule involved in a variety of endothelium-dependent physiological effects in the cardiovascular system.1,2
Relying on stimulants like caffeine to get a lift during the day often means high peaks of energy followed by deep valleys of exhaustion. But now there’s a better way. Asian Energy Boost combines two potent extracts, Cordyceps sinensis and Panax ginseng, to boost your body’s own energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Try Asian Energy Boost and lift your energy without the letdown of stimulants.
L-arginine may also help maintain the health of the immune system.3-7
Safely managing blood lipid levels can be a challenge for people as they get older. Yet an increasing number of doctors recognize the critical need to protect the arterial wall against low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation and inflammatory insults.
An age-related effect is the reduction in the energy-producing components of the cell, resulting in reduced cellular metabolic activity, and the accumulation of cellular debris.1-7 L-carnitine helps maintain cellular energy metabolism by assisting in the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria within the cell, where fats are oxidized to produce the cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP).8-13
Bilberry extract for eye health & ocular supportStandardized European Bilberry Extract from Life Extension helps maintain healthy eyes and supports ocular circulation & eye comfort, while its anthocyanin content promotes whole-body health.
Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant used in Europe to promote liver and nerve health, and confer protective benefits against oxidative processes. Alpha-lipoic acid has been called the “universal” antioxidant because it boosts glutathione levels in cells already within a normal range and has potent antioxidant actions.1-3
There’s an enzyme called AMPK that’s found in every cell in your body. Over time, declining AMPK levels can cause the accumulation of abdominal fat. Studies show that increasing AMPK activity can encourage cells to stop storing fat and start burning it for energy. That’s how we formulated our AMPK Metabolic Activator to help fight unwanted belly fat.
Benefits at a Glance:
Advanced Anti-Adipocyte Formula combines Meratrim® with Integra-Lean® African Mango Irvingia: two clinically studied ingredients which combat fat storage and help reduce appetite!
Meratrim® consists of two amazing plant extracts: the S. Indicus flower and Garcinia mangostana, or mangosteen fruit. Optimal results were shown in studies where S. Indicus and mangosteen extracts were combined.
Meratrim® targets the mechanisms which cause fat-storing cells (called adipocytes) to become bloated — leading to excess fat accumulations in the belly and throughout the body.
The plant extracts in Meratrim® also favorably elevates levels of a hormone called adiponectin,1 which sends command signals that determine how big your fat cells get, how much they break down (lipolysis), and how often they are produced (adipogenesis).2
Arterial Protect is a patented, scientifically validated oral formulation of Pycnogenol® French maritime pine bark extract and Centellicum® Centella asiatica leaf (also known as Gotu Kola) extract — two compounds shown to support endothelial health and promote healthy arterial blood flow throughout the body.
When properly supported, the mechanism known as homeostasis enables the body to maintain its normal balance during stress, helping us to remain energized and focused.
Increasingly overwhelmed by stress, however, our bodies seldom get a chance to restore our natural equilibrium.
The result is that an estimated 75%–90% of visits to primary care physicians are now related to the effects of stress.1
Even more alarming is a recently published study2 linking stress with shorter telomeres (the caps on the ends of chromosomes), which is associated with accelerated aging!
A major cause of aging is a reduction in the energy-producing components of the cell, resulting in reduced cellular metabolic activity, and the accumulation of cellular debris.1-7 L-carnitine helps maintain cellular energy metabolism by assisting in the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria within the cell, where fats are oxidized to produce the cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP).8-13
