Berberine HCl

Quantity: 90 Capsules
Anti-microbial (fungus, bacteria, yeasts, patasites)

Indications: Berberine has demonstrated significant activity against bacteria, yeasts, fungus and parasites. Berberine also has been shown to be supportive of healthy blood sugar levels as well as supporting normal blood lipid levels.
Berberine extracts and decoctions have demonstrated significant antimicrobial activity against a variety of organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans, helminths, and chlamydia. Thus, not surprisingly the current predominant clinical use of berberine includes bacterial diarrhea, intestinal parasite infections, and ocular trachoma infections. The Textbook of Natural Medicine indicates its pharmacological activities as antibiotic, immunostimulatory, anticonvulsant, sedative, hypotensive, uterotonic, cholerectic and carminative.
In addition to these actions, it has also demonstrated benefits in the regulation of blood sugar, in decreasing lipids, in the modulation of blood pressure and recently has been designated as a beneficial component in the management of Alzheimers disease.
As an antibacterial compound, berberine has demonstrated effectiveness against a broad spectrum of bacteria, yeasts, fungus and parasites. Bacterial susceptibility to Berberine includes Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Eschericha coli, Shigella boydii, Vibrio cholerae, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Yeasts and fungal susceptibility includes Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Microsporum gypseum, Cryptococcus neoformans, and Sporotrichum schenkii; while parasitic susceptibility, includes Entamoeba histolytica, and Giardia lamblia. Its mechanism of action is thought to result in part due its characteristic structure, that of a planar cationic molecule. This structural arrangement enables it to intercalate the DNA structure, similar in fashion to the mechanism of ethidium bromide.

IPS (Intestinal Permeability Support)

Quantity: 90 capsules
Leaky Gut Support

Indications: For Irritable Bowel Syndrome, leaky gut, colitis, Crohn’s disease, allergies, intestinal mucosa repair, and gut detoxification. Lays down a new mucosa layer on the inside of the gut wall, inhibits food leakage thus reduces allergic reactions.

L-Glutamine Powder

Quantity: 500 grams
Fatigue and Gastric Inflammation

Indications: Supports metabolism for alcoholism, sugar cravings, impotence, fatigue, gastric inflammation, epilepsy, schizophrenia, peptic ulcer and mental retardation. Glutamine is a very important amino acid, essential for the preservation of lean muscle tissue, for the formation of the antioxidant glutathione, and for the production of neurotransmitters such as glutamate and GABA (gamma amino butyric acid). Although glutamine can be produced endogenously, physiologic demand exceeds the body\’s ability to produce the amino acid during times of stress, infection, acute injury and illness. In these times, glutamine becomes a ‘conditionally essential amino acid’ and must be provided exogenously to meet physiologic needs.

Sacchoromyces Boulardii

Quantity: 60 Capsules
For balancing intestinal microflora.

Indications: S. boulardii has proven particularly beneficial for balancing the intestinal microbiology. It functions in the modulation of both innate immunity by activating the complement system and adaptive immunity by boosting the intestinal secretion of IgA. Additionally S. boulardii sureties “soluble factors” demonstrated to reduce inflammation win a reduction of the production of NF-KappaB and mitogen-activated protein kinase and to block the expression of inflammatory cytokines, particularly IL-8 which is secreted during E. coli infection. It also enhances the secretion of mucosal immune factors which protect against enteric pathogens and in dendritic immune cells it increases IL-10, which limits unspecific immune response by down regulating Th-1 response.Orally, Saccharomyces boulardii is used for treating and preventing diarrhea, including infectious types such as rotaviral diarrhea in children, diarrhea caused by bacterial overgrowth in adults, traveler’s diarrhea, and diarrhea associated with enteral tube feedings. It is also used orally to prevent and treat antibiotic-associateddiarrhea. Saccharomyces boulardii is also used orally for general digestion problems, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBD, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), Lyme disease, relapsing Clostridium difficile colitis, and bacterial overgrowth in short bowel syndrome. It is also used orally for lactoseintolerance, urinary tract infections (UTIs), vaginal and Candida-related (yeast) infections, high cholesterol levels, hives, fever blisters, canker sores, and adolescent acne.

Niacin 100

Quantity: 150 capsules

Description: Cardio-protective/Thyroid Hypofunction

Indications: Niacin, also referred to as Vitamin B3 or Nicotinic acid, is recognized as a cardio-protective agent, primarily due to its action in inhibiting triglyceride hydrolysis, resulting in both an increased HDL and a lowered triglyceride level. In fact, niacin has been associated with an increase in HDL by as much as 30%. In the body, its primary function is as a component of the coenzymes NAD+ and NADP+, both of which function in the redox state of the cell.
Niacin has also been known to substantially reduce headaches as well as stimulate Interleukin 10 production.

Ingredients: Niacin 100 mg
Amount Per Serving % Daily Value 500%
Other ingredients: Capsule shell (gelatin and water), cellulose and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).
