Why are phytonutrients important in our diet?
Phytonutrients are nutrients found in plants that develop to protect the plant from damaging environments. "Phyto" is a Greek word for plants. Plants are exposed to excess ultraviolet radiation, toxins, predator pests and pollution, which could result in the generation of dangerous free radicals within their cells. Fortunately, phytonutrients help to shield plants from such damage. Why is this important to us? Since we are also exposed to radiation and various environmental elements like plants, we need phytonutrients to protect us.
Toxins exist in every aspect of our lives, from the air we breathe to the food we eat. It's been estimated that there are currently 80,000 chemicals in the United States, and we are exposed to these toxins on a daily basis. Studies have shown that exposure to toxins can lead to inflammation, immune system dysfunction, oxidative damage and skeletal degeneration. Although avoiding these toxins is nearly impossible, phytonutrients can assist and support our body's natural process of detoxification. Some of the benefits of including phytonutrients in your diet are enhanced immune system, protection against cancer, support of eye and heart health, improved communication between cells and repair of DNA damage.
Antioxidants can also slow down the signs of aging by cleaning up the by-products of oxidation within our body. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine reveals, a diet rich in phytonutrients and low in dairy foods and saturated fat can substantially lower blood pressure. Phytonutrients can also improve our vision and help decrease inflammation. Moreover, phytochemicals in food can help decrease LDL ("bad") cholesterol.
What are ORAC values?
ORAC stands for "Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity", which is a lab test that is designed to measure the collective antioxidant power of various substances in a food by placing a sample of the food in a test tube, along with certain molecules that are vulnerable to oxidation. ORAC measures how well the antioxidants contained in a particular food perform, as a whole, in absorbing or incapacitating a particular free radical. ORAC is able to measure the synergistic effects between various nutrients and how these nutrients are more effective in combination than they are individually.
As we know, antioxidants play a crucial role in your health. They can help fight disease and can also turn back the clock, as Dr. Oz commented. In addition, consuming high levels of antioxidants can significantly decrease the adverse effects of free radicals which could cause oxidative stress, which have been shown to, in part, cause the development of various chronic and degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease and neuronal degeneration such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
One of our best-selling products, Iridesca by Exsula Superfood has been tested for its ORAC value by a lab in Europe, which determined that Iridesca has a higher ORAC value than elderberries (which is often ranked as one of the most antioxidant-rich foods). At 24,620 (or 246.2 μmol TE per gram of test-sample), Iridesca proves to be one of the top-ranking and most antioxidant-rich superfood blends that are on the market today.
What are some of the benefits of magnesium?
Many people in the United States are unaware of how essential magnesium is in our diets. As a results, adequate intake of magnesium is rare. Magnesium is crucial for various reasons; among those reasons are its anti-inflammatory benefits, migraine prevention and reduction in PMS symptoms. Magnesium has been linked to lower depression in adults. Moreover, studies show that taking magnesium supplements can lower blood pressure. Furthermore, people who get the most magnesium have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and supplements have been shown to lower blood sugar in some people. Magnesium is also an important factor in muscle relaxation and heart health. It also allows nerves to send messages in the brain and nervous systems. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include muscle cramps or tremors, irregular heartbeat, fatigue, confusion, and irritability. Without this essential mineral in our diet, it is hard to achieve optimal health.
Why should I take magnesium supplements?
With an estimated three-quarters of Americans taking in insufficient magnesium, the number of people at risk for chronic deficiency is high. This is especially so among older people, as the ability to absorb adequate amounts magnesium slowly declines with age. The good news is that magnesium supplementation is a safe and effective way for most people to ensure they are getting enough magnesium to stay healthy.
Can magnesium be absorbed transdermally (through the skin)?
Yes, in fact, transdermal absorption of magnesium has been shown to be more effective than oral ingestion in some cases. By bypassing the digestive system it goes straight into the bloodstream and is delivered to the cells that need it.
What health benefits does iodine supplement provide?
Iodine is an essential trace element that is vital for normal growth and the development of the body. Around 60% of the iodine in the human body is stored in the thyroid gland. Iodine plays an important role in maintaining optimal energy levels of the body by ensuring the efficient utilization of calories, without allowing them to be deposited as excess fats. Some of the health benefits of iodine also include the formation of healthy and shiny skin, teeth, and hair.
Most people are not aware that iodine can be a major booster for the immune system. It is also stimulates the activity of antioxidants throughout the body to provide a strong defensive measure against various diseases, including heart diseases and cancer. If you are not getting enough iodine daily, you may not have as much energy as you would otherwise.
Subsequently, inadequate intake of iodine can adversely affect the muscle, heart, liver, kidney and the developing brain. Some of symptoms of iodine deficiency include depression, difficulty losing weight, dry skin, headaches, lethargy, memory problems, sensitivity to cold, cold hands and feet, brain fog, thinning hair, constipation, shortness of breath, impaired kidney function, and muscle weakness and joint stiffness.
One of the best ways to ensure you are getting adequate iodine is to add iodine supplements in your diet. In fact, the intention of U.S. manufacturers iodizing table salt in the 1920s was to prevent iodine deficiencies.
Why are enzymes important in our diet?
Enzymes breakdown the macronutrients of our food. Lethargic digestion robs the body of energy that could put toward other metabolic functions. Digestive enzymes can assist with the efficient conversion of carbohydrates into fuel, which helps you maintain your energy level. An optimized digestive system may translate into less inflammation, toxic stagnation and less excess weight. Enzymes can also help with weight loss by speeding digestion and supporting metabolism.
Digestive enzymes can also help heal leaky gut as it takes the stress off the GI tract. Digestive enzymes can assist the body to break down protein and sugars that are difficult to suggest such as gluten, casein and lactose. Enzymes can also enhance the nutrition absorption of the food you eat and therefore can prevent nutritional deficiency. Enzymes could greatly improve symptoms and signs of IBS and acid reflux.
How does ZoeTein aid in enzymes support?
Quality protein molecules are the physical framework to which your bits of enzyme life-energy are attached. The specific types of raw and easily utilizable proteins and aminos selected for ZoeTein are so good that I feel comfortable referring to them as "Proenzymes."
This is the Superfood-quality protein material that your liver (the 'heart' of your body's enzyme system) can use to reinvigorate and transform enzymes of one kind being recycled by your liver into exactly the forms required by your body, according to its needs at that moment. This same incredible liver-enzyme processing miracle must also be applied to food enzymes and proteins to prepare them for use as human enzymes.
These unique enzyme powers of ZoeTein are remarkable Life-Quality and Longevity factors. Enzymes are complex protein molecules sculptured by life-electric fields giving them unique life-functional properties. Enzymes perform life-specific chemical transformations for you at body temp that could otherwise only be performed in a lab at temperatures much too high for life to survive. Like molecular miracle wands, enzymes transform inactive nutrient materials into your actual living life.
Denatured proteins - like cooked vegetables, meats, and soy proteins - are processed by heat which deactivates enzymes and locks up much of the life-potential of the proteins themselves. Raw plant proteins are naturally full of enzymes, coenzymes, and pre-enzyme amino acids. Cooked proteins (especially meat) are life-void and not readily transformable into enzymes.
In fact, on the way to your precious cells and organs, these denatured proteins putrefy into somewhat toxic, nearly indigestible life-clogging forms that actually use up enzymes in order to be reprocessed so their useful components can be utilized from the toxic portions - and so those toxins can be eliminated. Denatured proteins are LifeEnergy robbers while raw undenatured plant protein is LifeEnergy supporting. Obviously, enzyme antagonizing proteins lead to disease and premature loss of life-quality, and eventually loss of life itself, while life potentiating proteins promote a youthful bio-age into advanced chronological-age.
Your liver is the heart of your enzyme system where most of your enzymes are made. Key components come together there to create your enzyme life fields that make the difference between healthy and sick lifeless tissue. These components include Lecithin, Coenzyme Q10, your existing enzyme life-field pattern influences, and complete high-quality Amino Acids. Your body also recycles these resources.
How does animal-source protein differ from ZoeTein, which is derived from plant-based protein?
Compared to a typical nutritionist-crafted meat meal, ZoeTein will supply you with as much utilizable protein. And we use the word "utilizable" here very loosely. Animal proteins are usually cooked, pasteurized, homogenized, etc. and the protein molecules are no longer raw and easily separable; they have become coagulated or 'glued' together.
A lab will analyze cooked whey that is acid-generating and health-undermining as "protein" and even assign it a potency number for a nutrition facts panel. The question is, will your body and cells recognize it as useable protein and amino acids they need? The majority of cooked or processed protein food - even veggies - is really a lost cause - often more burden than benefit to your goal of staying healthy and looking great.
Any useful molecules of cooked protein must be tediously separated from carcinogenic fried fats or lunch meat chemicals - or from cholesterol, animal hormones, and animal body toxins, and antibiotics, bacteria and parasites, by the efforts of your organs of digestion.
Meat proteins are a sad way to treat your colon, your arteries, and all of your tissues and cells. Cooked meats are a direct path to getting and staying overweight, experiencing cancer or a heart attack, and to losing quality of life fast and early. Anything one can do to displace that consumption with raw plant protein is an excellent choice. Until now, most complete amino, raw vegetable protein menus have been too bulky to be convenient, or affordable and effective. Nor have they been appealing to most appetites as a practical alternative source to animal protein. And most vegetable proteins - like soy protein powder, and cooked vegetables - have also been heat processed and made denatured.
Our goal here is to provide a Superfood-grade raw protein food powder from plant sources, that can displace half or more of one's daily denatured protein consumption. And we succeeded in accomplishing this with a pleasant neutral-tasting powder that can be blended into fruit smoothies. These Superfood protein smoothies can be varied in flavor according to your own unique tastes and likes with fruits or vegetables.
How does Superfood-quality protein aids in fat loss?
The more superfood-quality protein your muscles get, the more efficient they become in burning fat and giving you maximum fat loss out of your exercise and activities - and even during resting.
The sad fact is, in the stampede to lose weight America has lost sight of the real goal which is to get and stay healthy, and looking great. That requires muscle, and quality muscle requires quality protein.
Most protein products have fallen short in their promise, and many of their customers have lost hope. It is time for a new paradigm: De-emphasize the pounds on the scale, and track the inches around your bottom and belt-line instead.
Muscles and other well nourished tissues are heavy - in fact, the healthier they are, the more dense and heavier they are - but they are shapely, firm and tight. Isn't that what you really want? If you look sculpted, solid and trim, who cares what you weigh? - Right?
Most people will not perceive your typical pound-based weight loss program as something positive if you have dumped heavy muscle, and kept the lighter weight watery fat. You have lost pounds, but you are still bulging all over - what good is that? Instead, concentrate on muscle firmness and those inches. Muscle support means enhanced muscle density and efficiency, which means more fat being burned and more fat weight lost.
More muscle, means you develop a stronger, tougher, more solid body that is more responsive to exercise and better able to take life's knocks - while becoming more stable and less likely to be injured. Poor musculature is a common factor in obesity. It is also the cause of elderly persons falling and their degree of pain, injury, costs and recovery time.
You never want to lose muscle weight - you want to lose fat weight.
How does ZoeTein establish appetite control?
This protein-rich Superfood reduces your desire for nutritionally empty, chemically processed, life-draining high-cholesterol, low-enzyme, SAD (Standard American Diet) foods.
Your body has a natural hunger for high-quality protein and will drive you to eat & eat & eat, until you provide it. So, just provide it.
A daily supply of ZoeTein will typically provide a better balance, spectrum, and amount of genuinely utilizable protein than an expensive, nutritionist-crafted & balanced, vegetarian meal.
How does ZoeTein assists in supporting our immunity system and healing?
We have created a synergistic combination of ingredients that provide you with yet another very compelling reason to include ZoeTein in your regular nutrition strategy - and that reason is immune resistance, and healing.
Our early experience with one of the main ingredients in ZoeTein led us to a startling discovery about how quickly the body latches onto the energetics of these Superfoods. When consumed as a raw, enzyme-energy-promoting food, your body absorbs and utilizes the life-energetics, and not just the chemistry, of this stuff to support your body's restoration of homeostasis at troubled cells, or infected tissue sites.
What is Moringa Oleifera?
Recently, moringa oleifera, a type of plant, became widely known for its wealth of beneficial properties and was cited one of the most impressive herbal supplements in the market. In 2008, the National Institute of Health deemed moringa the "plant of the year" due to its potential to undo many environmental damages and factors, helping our skin to appear more youthful and . Moreover, Vogue magazine called moringa supplements as "redefining beauty from within." A 2010 study in the Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacodynamics revealed that moringa leaves contain a powerful and all-natural adaptogen, which aids in protecting the body from the toxic and damaging effects of stress.
What are the health benefits of probiotics?
Probiotics can help restore the natural balance of gut bacteria by promoting more "good bacteria" that line your digestive tract. An imbalance of bacterias means that there are too many bad bacteria andnot enough good bacteria. This can be the result of illness, medications such as antibiotics, poor diet and more. This imbalance can also result in digestive issues, allergies, mental health problems and obesity.
About 80 percent of your immune system resides in your gastrointestinal tract in the form of receptor cells. Because of this prime location, what happens in your gut can powerfully influence your immune function. As a result, probiotics also support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection.
Research has shown that probiotics may help with mental health problems such as stress, anxiety, depression and memory problems. Probiotics are also widely known for their ability to prevent diarrhea or reduce its severity. Probiotics may also help reduce the symptoms of bowel disorders like ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome ("IBS") and necrotizing enterocolitis, a fatal bowel condition that occurs in premature infants. Moreover, probiotics may also help to keep your heart healthy as it may reduce bad ("LDL") cholesterol.
There is also some research that shows probiotics may be useful for problems in other parts of your body, including skin conditions like eczema, urinary and vaginal health, and can aid in preventing allergies and cold.
What strategies should I implement to achieve a healthy gut along with taking Strata-Flora as a supplement?
Strata-Flora's Strategy for a Healthy Gut:
Number 1 - Stimulate Peristaltic Muscle Action The Lecithin and other synergist nutrients in Strata-Flora focus on pumping food, debris and any parasites (after killing them) through your digestive tract by stimulating peristaltic muscle action.
Number 2 - Supply Beneficial Bacteria Supplying billions of beneficial flora cells every day will also help destroy the bad, pathogenic bacteria. They're also uniquely skilled in self-colonization.
Prebiotics... Food for Probiotics They improve the health of your intestines and immune system, by stimulating the activity & growth of your naturally present, beneficial probiotic bacteria. Prebiotics enable the continued growth of your healthy internal flora. All our Exsula Superfoods multi-ingredient formulas contain a plant-derived prebiotic called inulin, a soluble fiber that also helps lower cholesterol.
Number 3 - Feed the Beneficial Bacteria/ This keeps them multiplying, taking over everything from your lips, tongue, gums, sinuses, and throat, all the way to your stomach, intestinal tract, anal & perianal area, and eventually even protecting vaginal, cervix, and urethral & bladder territories from infection.
Number 4 - Starve The Bad Bacteria. By feeding the bad bacteria some nutrient-empty food (Xylitol, a natural fruit & vegetable sugar), very many of them starve to death, or at least become too tired to reproduce. Since they naturally only live a very short time, this tactic alone can exterminate them.
Number 5 - Fire-Up Your Immune System. With toxins no longer building-up and being cleansed away, your immune system has more energy to kill off more bad bacteria such as yeasts, molds, fungus, infections, viruses and parasites in every remote territory of your body. Also, the new good bacteria manufacture special immune-synergists (enzymes & nutrients) that further fire-up your immune system. A better fed immune system is a more effective immune system.
Number 6 - Properly Digest Food. With natural flora balance restored, the digestive process also restarts, and begins to properly break down food into its assimilable forms. This process is similar to how bacteria in soil breaks down minerals & nutrients into a reduced ionic form, so plant roots are able to take them up. In fact, Strata-Flora uses some of these very same strains. If you were a plant, your intestines would be your roots. It is this beneficial bacterial system preparing nutrients for the roots that is precisely why organically grown produce has so much more flavor, vitality, and nutritional value. You should have been getting, and can now get those same nutrient uptake/utilization benefits internally right at the point of assimilation. Properly fed cells become tougher and less vulnerable to any bug that comes along.
Number 7 - Healthy Gut Leads to a Healthy, Vibrant Life. A properly digesting body, gets higher quality and amounts of nutrients, and gradually becomes less demanding, requiring less food. A healthy gut can more efficiently burn fat, that stores disease-causing free radicals. With fewer free radicals to attend to, the enzymes in your body start turning their attention to all the other fun aspects of life (like sex, play, creativity, positive attitude, satisfying work, radiance, beauty, not needing to sleep so much) and just plain feeling great. A body that is having a great, healthy time with life isn't likely to succumb to disease. Your body is liberated and free to become its best.
The upward spiral has just begun with incredible lifelong benefits and even more positive changes ahead. Intestinal & Organ Cleanse = Restore Your Digestive and Immune Systems Eliminate Viruses, Bad Bacteria, Yeast, Parasites & Infections Promote Optimal Bowel Regularity: Fewer Toxins = Fewer Aches.
What is the function of Strata-Flora?
Strata-Flora is the most powerful strategy for whole body cleansing and healing.
First, it supplies a team of ingredients to tidy-up the intestinal environment.
Next, it utilizes a wide-spectrum team of 77 of the most sought after strains of self-colonizing digestion- surviving, temperature-resistant and SBOs (Soil Based Organisms) cultures. Each type of flora has its own unique place in the digestive tract environment, making food nutrients available, producing natural protective immune factors, and Vitamins B-12 and K, etc.
Also, each serving of Strata-Flora contains a full compliment of powerful probiotic nutrients including Slippery Elm & Agave Inulin. With Strata’s rich supply they have been shown to support a fivefold increase in beneficial flora needed to help eliminate undesirable organisms.
What does Iridesca contain and what makes it unique from other supplements on the market?
Iridesca contains superb array of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, fibers and amino acids. Iridesca is a super-concentrated formulation of fruits, herbs and plants renowned for their abilities to make and accumulate phytonutrients.
We use wild crafted whenever we can, organic as a second choice, responsibly farmed when organic does not apply. We explicitly avoid GMO (Genetically Modified) sources. The ingredients are carefully micronized for maximum absorption.
What are the benefits of Coenzyme Q-10?
Coenzyme Q-10 (also referred to as "CoQ10") is a type of coenzyme, which help enzymes to digest food properly, support other body processes and aid in protecting the heart and skeletal system. CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant that strengthens your body's natural defenses against these dangerous toxins. As a fat-soluble electron carrier, CoQ10 can protect our DNA cell walls from oxidative damage. As a powerful antioxidants, CoQ10 can also increase the absorption of other nutrients. It has been shown to help recycle Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Although our body has the ability to produce some CoQ10, the production naturally declines as we age. Unfortunately, as we age, CoQ10 is more necessary as our bodies continue to fight against radical damage.
Some of other health benefits of CoQ10 include helping to lower fatigue and boosts stamina. It can support healthy gums and reduces muscular dystrophy. It may help to stabilize blood sugar. CoQ10 may be able to help treat cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Studies show that those with cognitive disorders tend to have lower levels of CoQ10.
Since our bodies' natural production of CoQ10 declines as we age, it may be helpful for most people to add CoQ10 supplements or supplements with CoQ10 as an ingredient.
What are some of the signs of low levels of Human Growth Hormone ("HGH") or HGH deficiency?
Signs and symptoms of HGH deficiency include depression, hair loss, decreased muscle strength and mass, memory loss, lack of concentration, dry skin, fatigue, cardiovascular disease risk, increase LDL ("bad") cholesterol, reduced bone density, temperature sensitivities and increased weight, especially arond the waist.
What are the benefits of Human Growth Hormone ("HGH")?
Human Growth Hormone ("HGH") has been known to increase muscle strength and improve physical capacity of individuals by encouraging collagen synthesis. HGH supplements have also been shown to speed up fracture healing and regeneration of bone. HGH also plays a critical role in the healing or injuries and wounds.
Another crucial benefit of HGH is successful reduction in weight loss, as HGH can accelerate lipolysis, which is the breakdown of lipids. A published study has shown HGH can cause weight loss with the greatest loss being visceral fat, the type of fat stored around the waistline. HGH has also been linked to stimulate the reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, which could lead to decreased life expectancy. It has been shown in a recent study that HGH treatment could lead to positive results in treating obesity naturally. In a study involving men between the ages of 48-66 with high visceral (abdominal) fat, HGH has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and decrease diastolic blood pressure.
HGH has also been linked to improved cognitive function, mood and concentration. Moreover, HGH could lead to better sleep. In a study conducted by University of Chicago, HGH level was decreased dramatically in those who were sleep deprived. This study suggests that sleep deprivation could potentially reduce the release of HGH in the morning and can disturb the sleep-wake cycle.
How is HGH (Original Formula) beneficial for my hair, skin and nails?
Who doesn't look in the mirror and want to turn back the clock at some point? Ever wonder if your skin's elasticity can be restored? Or you wish to stop losing copious amounts of hair in the shower? Or peel a label off of a new CD without a fingernail peeling first? Then it's time to stop wondering, the answer is here! Human Growth Hormone therapy is the answer people have been seeking.
Mark Twain once said, "Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of 80 and gradually approach 18." Too bad Mark Twain didn't live in the 21st Century with Human Growth Hormone therapy. Research using Human Growth Hormone (HGH) replacement therapy has made great strides and become increasingly popular in the last few years. At ProBLEN, we've worked with top researchers and doctors to create the highest quality HGH supplement to reverse the signs of aging and restore many of the body's functions that have decreased. It turns out that the secret to beautiful skin, hair and nails is not found up and down the beauty aisles, or at expensive cosmetic counters.
It's not even found at the salon or plastic surgeons office. The secret to beautiful skin, hair, and nails has been within the body from the beginning. Human Growth Hormones... they just decrease with age. ProBLEN HGH simply replaces the HGH naturally lost over time. It is safe, effective, and natural for glowing skin, shiny hair and strong healthy nails. Along with a healthy diet, exercise, and plenty of water is the natural, effective way to live young and age well.
How does HGH (Original Formula) assist in restoring our youthfulness?
One can't stop chronological aging (the exact age of a person to the precise day); the years will march on regardless. But one can slow down and improve biological aging (the age determined by physiology rather than chronology. Factors include changes in the physical structure of the body as well as changes in the performance of motor skills and sensory awareness). ProBLEN gives biology a boost with ProBLEN HGH supplements. It's been said that you're only as old as you feel. If the ability to restore youthful vigor naturally were available, isn't it worth a try? Aging is just as much psychological as it is physical.
ProBLEN's HGH can naturally and safely restore the natural HGH (Human Growth Hormone) to youthful levels again.
People can't prevent aging, but they can certainly choose to do it gracefully with more energy and increased health! ProBLEN HGH helps to support the ability to maintain satisfactory levels of HGH, and is fundamental to good health, optimum growth, and general well-being.
How is HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 going to get the body back to its youthful ways?
Problen assists our body to restore its youthful vigor by increasing its HGH production naturally and safely, since the body is declining in this area. Specifically, Human Growth Hormone fuels cells in the liver to produce IGF (Insulin-like growth factor) including IGF-1 & IGF-2.
The IGF-1 limits Insulin's ability to transfer glucose to the cells, so as the body's insulin goes down the body is forced to burn fat that is already in the cells to produce energy.
Additionally, the limited insulin helps reduce the body's ability to store fat from food. Both the utilization of fat reserve and reduction of fat deposition support the body's ability to lose weight.Scientific research has shown that Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is critical in burning down body fat and building muscle mass.
This ability of HGH to stimulate muscle growth, while reducing fat tissue deposits in the body improves energy levels and sense of well-being.A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism assessed the effectiveness of HGH therapy on 59 adult men and women with a body mass index of 37.
The study spanned six months, and the findings showed weight loss at an average rate of five pounds, which continued for nine months after the therapy, was stopped. The New England Journal of Medicine published a paper, by Dr. Rudman, showing the participants (all elderly males) lost 14 % of their body fat while gaining approximately 8.8 % of muscle mass.
A similar study by the University Of New Mexico also showed the HGH helped reduce body fat by 1.5 % and increased muscle mass by three pounds in healthy young adults. Problen HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 uses Bio-identical hormones to support HGH levels and treat symptoms associated with low or imbalanced Human Growth Hormone levels. Using Problen HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 has been shown to increase lean body mass, improve energy and endurance as well as boost the immune system.
How does HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 aids in energy support and weight loss?
Problen HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 supplements support natural abilities in weight loss, as well as helps to improve sleep and improve muscle mass. One of the first effects when beginning an HGH supplement will be an increase in energy levels and improved sleep. Effects such as increased energy, vigor and strength are much easier to measure than effects happening internally, such as an increase in bone density or other effects on a cellular level. HGH also supports the body's ability to improve oxygen to the blood supply by improving lung and cardiovascular functions.
Increased oxygen in the blood means more energy and greater stamina and is one reason why HGH is used widely by athletes and bodybuilders. Research has shown the pituitary gland produces ample growth hormone up to the age of 30 years, after which HGH levels begin to drop considerably, causing weight gain, decreased muscle mass, brittle bones, weak immune system, disturbed sleep patterns, and mood swings.
HGH is responsible for maintaining youthfulness and vigor; decreased HGH levels lead to exhaustion and inertia. Problen HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 supplements stimulate the pituitary gland and help it produce more HGH like it used to in its optimum years.
Problen's hormone supplements, such as HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2, are readily absorbed into the body and into the bloodstream. Problen's HGH products will not only help improve energy levels, but also support weight loss, improve muscle mass, improve muscle tone, increase bone density, lower cholesterol levels, enhance cardiac functioning, promote deep and restful sleep, eliminate mood swings, and infuse one with a sense of well-being and health.
What are the benefits of DHEA supplements?
Restoring DHEA production, both naturally with lifestyle habits and through the use of supplements, can improve many youthful qualities. DHEA has the ability to lower inflammation, which is the root of most diseases including heart diseases and cancer. DHEA taken in supplement form can also boost certain hormone levels, help prevent autoimmune reactions and mood disorders such as depression. Studies involving women with autoimmune disorders such as lupus and thyroid disorders suggest lower levels of DHEA can negatively impact internal organs, the skin and the immune system.
DHEA is also associated with having anti-aging effects like preventing bone loss and could lower the risk of fractures and conditions like osteoporosis. Some evidence also suggest that higher levels of DHEA could improve estrogen production and could actually improve bone mineral density.
According to some studies, DHEA may lower rates of depression and mood-related symptoms, including loss of pleasure, loss of energy, lack of motivation, emotional "numbness," sadness, inability to cope with stress and excessive worrying. DHEA could potentially balance the production of other hormones such as testosterone and estrogen, which are necessary to maintain a positive outlook, motivation and adequate energy. Another important benefits of DHEA supplements is it is often use to help promote weight loss and support athletes with a focus on building lean muscle mass. Lean muscle could help you burn calories more efficiently, even while resting. DHEA has also been linked to a lower risk of clogged arteries, high cholesterol, heart disease and blood clots. DHEA may reduce the risk for heart disease by lowering inflammation and improve the use of insulin and glucose.
What are superfoods?
Superfoods are foods that are jam-packed with nutrients and can help provide your body with the vitamins and minerals you need to thrive and achieve optimal health.
Chlorella is fresh water, green algae is loaded with vitamins, trace minerals, minerals and phytonutrients. Chlorella can aid in supporting healthy hormonal function, promoting cardiovascular health and lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Chlorella is also a powerful aid in the detoxification process of our body, as it can rid our bodies of heavy metals and help negate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Research has shown that chlorella may also slow the process of aging, which can help us appear younger. Moreover, chlorella benefits you by helping to regulate hormones, improve metabolism and circulation, and promoting higher levels of energy. It may also aid in reducing weight and body fat, and removing stored toxins.
Spirulina is a fresh water, blue-green algae that is one of the most nutritious foods you can consume. It can detoxes our bodies and rid of heavy metals, and can improve our immune system. Spirulina has also been shown to promote the growth of healthy bacterial flora in our intestines. It can also reduce cholesterol level and lower blood pressure. It can offer many heart health benefits, including lowering the risk of stroke. A finding from the University of Maryland Medical Center reveals, “A number of animal and test tube studies suggest that spirulina increases production of antibodies, infection-fighting proteins, and other cells that improve immunity and help ward off infection and chronic illnesses such as cancer.”
Why should I add superfoods to my diet?
It is rare and difficult for most of us to ensure that we have an array of antioxidants and phytonutrients in our diet, even if we try. Consuming fresh, organic greens is not always for those of us who are always on the go; however, these superfoods are critical to our health. Green drinks or superfoods that usually come in powder form offer an easy, tasty alternative. Mix it with water, coconut or almond milk or your favorite smoothie in the morning.
Superfoods in the morning is a great way to add carbs in veggie form and vegetable proteins before you start your day, which could boost your metabolism and brain power. Many of the ingredients in superfoods are also packed with antioxidants, which neutralize free radicals in our bodies. Superfoods can also help reduce appetite and support the conversion of foods to energy. It can also help ward off colds by strengthening your immune system. The chlorophyll in superfoods alkalizes and cleas the blood, which means that you will have plenty of red blood cells to carry oxygen that are essential for brain and cell functioning. Superfoods can also give you an energy boost, similar to a cup of coffee, without the sugar and caffeine. The chlorophyll can also help keep a healthy pH level in your body, which means your body will maintain a healthy alkaline vs. acid levels. A body that is too acidic is more susceptible to inflammatory diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, respiratory disorders and arthritis. Many foods that we consume on a daily basis today are highly acidic. Superfoods can be a great way to restore our pH levels.
What are antioxidants? Why are they important?
We are no stranger to the word "antioxidants" but most of us are unaware of of the benefits of these powerful substances. Antioxidants can help in the prevention of cellular damage caused by free radicals. When free radicals react with our DNA or cell membrane, cells may function poorly or ultimately die as a result. To prevent this, our body has a defense system of antioxidants.
Free radicals exist in the world we live in. In fact, our bodies also naturally produce free radicals. Since antioxidants can counteract the damaging effects of free radicals, antioxidants are crucial. However, in most cases, free radicals far outnumber the naturally produced antioxidants in our bodies. To maintain the balance of free radicals and antioxidants, a continuing supply of external sources of antioxidants would be necessary to obtain the optimum benefits of these substances. Boosting our antioxidant intakes can also help provide added protection for the body against immune system problems, mood disorders, heart problems, eye problems and memory problems. Antioxidants are also thought to have a role in slowing the aging process and preventing heart disease and strokes. In sum, antioxidants are a necessary component to achieve optimal health.
Why is silica important for youthful skin, hair and nails?
Silica is absolutely essential for bone growth and for the development of the body. One of the biggest components of collagen is actually silica. As we age, we lose silica. Silica supplement could help to rebuild and regenerate the connective tissue in our skin. It first enhances collagen production which ensures healthy outer cell layers. Additionally, silica helps to combat hormonal imbalance, which is one of the biggest causes in hair loss and the thinning of hair.
What are the difference between other silica supplements and the high quality silica that is in AuraSil 30?
To the eye of an observer, there will be an apparent 10 years difference between a high-Silica and a low-Silica individual of the same chronological age. The cost difference in healthcare dollars and suffering is incalculable. With AuraSil there is an opportunity to turn-back biological time, and prevent low-Silica manifestations. Fiber and meats contain quite a bit of Silica but in poorly assimilated forms. Calcium from milk and some other foods suppress Silica uptake and retention. Silica is the mineral that is required to activate the bone cells to attach calcium.
Even though cow's milk contains Silica, its calcium suppresses more Silica than provided in the milk - calcium retention falters as bones, teeth and cells weaken in a lifelong downward spiral. Only Silica that has been suspended in water by the roots of a living plant will dissolve back into a water-suspended molecular form suitable for assimilation by humans.
The roots of the Bamboo plant are SuperFood efficient at generating this form of Silica at levels dozens of times greater than other plants - thus Bamboo's incredibly fast growth and incomparably strong and durable structure.
Bamboo stores precious Silica in watery sap that collects in the hollow pockets at the joints. This liquid is harvested, dried and pulverized to the finest possible powder for dissolving into juice, water or liquids in your digestive tract. The Bamboo powder-crystals are crispy sponge-like structures of minerals, and proteins - richer in bioavailable Silica than any other plant or rock source.

What is Ecklonia Cava and how is it beneficial to our health?
Extract from Ecklonia Cava is proven to be 100 times more powerful than any land-based antioxidant. Over 15 years of research and nearly $40 million worth of clinical studies back it up. Ecklonia extract stays in your body for 12 hours, compared to land-based antioxidants that are mostly gone in 30 minutes. Ecklonia is up to 10 times more powerful than any antioxidant on land including vitamin C, vitamin E, blueberries, green tea, and red grape resveratrol! It could be the most powerful antioxidant ever discovered. Its polyphenol antioxidants are a incredible 40% lipid (fat) soluble. Unlike most water soluble antioxidants, Ecklonia protects you from oxidation in all three levels of your cells, including the outside, the lipid-based cell membranes, and your DNA. It also protects the fatty tissues of your brain.
Why is Lecithin important in our diet?
A diet rich in Lecithin may increase good HDL cholesterol and lower bad LDL cholesterol. Lecithin supplements may also increase immune function and may help ease symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), as it can aid in reducing digestive distress. Lecithin has also been shown to improve cognitive functions and nervous systems. Fat loss may also be a side benefit of taking lecithin.
What are nutritionally dormant cells and how are they harmful to us?
With the cell's limiter (apoptosis) system rendered nutritionally dormant, tumors can exist in defiance of the original cellular genetic blueprint and regional differentiation life-matrix which assigns each cell's configuration and function (i.e. lung, breast, prostate, colon, etc.).
Tumors eventually take over the assigned tissue function and displaces it with dysfunctional cellular squalor - a sort of "living death" of extremely aged and malfunctioning cells that are still metabolizing nutrients and reproducing. In contrast, when a precancerous mutation has occurred in a cell that is provided with sufficient levels of a certain relatively scarce phytonutrient, then that cell's biological limiter is actively on guard, goes to work preventing cellular division, and simply shuts off that entire cell within about 2 to 3 days. This quickly makes room and resources available for healthy new cells. This is not at all unusual - only the normal process of assuring healthy cells. The would-be tumors have no opportunity to propagate.
This process involves no tissue-killing toxins. There is no damage to healthy cells. There is no great secret miracle rallying of the general immune system required. These special phytonutrient molecules simply feed the appropriate cellular mechanism which selectively assists the errant cell to gently and naturally take itself off-line at its own internal discretion - just as each cell will eventually do anyway.
Phytonutrition (from plants) is incredibly affordable and noninvasive in contrast to technological or surgical responses.
What causes cellular mutations and how is it harmful to our health?
All systems erode in structure as they age and are worn upon by unfavorable factors of their labors and environment. The biological mechanisms of your cells are no exception. Today your cells are inflicted with toxic mutagenic chemicals and adverse environmental factors that your ancestors' cells never even knew. Some cells face massive cumulative amounts of cigarette smoke and/or traffic generated toxins, agricultural chemicals, factory generated pollutants, and radioactive industry mutagens that can overwhelm a cell's genetic environment. Even the contents of our buildings, cleaners, cosmetics, mercury dental fillings, food and water - and our own body's free-radical production from daily exercise and metabolic activities contribute to these molecular assaults, and their effects of aging, and disease.
Cell by cell, if left unchecked, the various versions of these mutations are responsible for the premature deaths of at least 1 out of 4 Americans and Canadians who die from all causes combined. That is around 750 people daily, or the equivalent of an airliner crashing nose first every 8 hours. The number who suffer indescribable pain and loss is many times larger. This article should be of extra special interest to smokers, ex-smokers, traffic commuters, city dwellers, and farm workers. Runaway cellular replication is one such perverse form of cellular erosion in which a serious mutation has been inflicted, and where the cell's biological-limiter-system has been nutritionally starved just barely past the threshold of non-function.
How does EllagiPlex promote cellular optimization?
We promote and feed the healthy cells. The phytonutrient does nothing directly to any illness. The result is the end of unchecked cell growth or propagation. Only healthy cells remain. Instead of focusing on "fighting illness" we focus on optimal nurturing of all cells.
The cells of your body preserve you by replacing themselves with new, perfectly functioning cells. They do this by dividing, thereby creating new cells from healthy ones. Each healthy new cell has a biological efficiency system which keeps track of that cell's age and functional accuracy, including its ability to accurately divide and youthfully reproduce itself.
When that cell's efficiency tracking system has noted an unacceptably increasing level of malfunction, or the passing of its allotted span of existence, it shuts down the cell quite gracefully. Then that deactivated cell submits to being enzymatically dissolved into its various much simpler elemental components. These are reallocated to the useful purposes of newer living cells in your body - or else these components are instinctively sorted out molecule-by-molecule separately to be disposed of as waste material.
What are the benefits that EllagiPlex has on the longevity and youthfulness of our cells?
The benefits of the efficiency of this tracking system in each of your 100 trillion cells accumulate directly to your available vitality (youthfulness) and longevity. Old and mutating eroding cells are sluggish, fat and toxin retaining, vulnerable to disease, and are inefficient in their use of valuable nutritional resources. You certainly don't want those cells multiplying themselves and their problems - including cancer or whatever disease or deficiency.
Youthful cells are optimally performing cells. Every one of your body systems benefits from younger, heartier, healthier cells, creating an excellent life-energy, body tone, beauty and quality of life. Aren't these the cells you want more of - to displace the ailing and failing ones? Obviously, overall nutrient abundance is important to every aspect of this system's design specifications and healthful response. It takes meaningful amounts of a wide range of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to construct healthy new cells. That is where our Iridesca full-spectrum Superfood blend comes in. However, there is one specific phytonutrient (a biological molecule manufactured by life processes of certain plant cells) that has researchers especially excited, and which most directly benefits the cellular efficiency tracking mechanism. The focus of this article is about the value of taking even more generous amounts of that particular phytonutrient.
The precursors of this nontoxic food nutrient - Ellagic Acid - are found in meaningful amounts only in certain nuts and in certain fruit seeds - foods formerly more abundant in the diets of our nature-fed berry-gathering ancestors - but now typically rather intermittent and scarce in the usual diets of most factory-fed people. Ask yourself, When was the last time I ate pecans, walnuts, pomegranates, strawberries, blackberries, cranberries, or blueberries, in 2 cup quantities daily - on an ongoing basis - and was careful to chew every seed.
What is potassium iodide?
Potassium iodide is a medicine that can help relieve congestion in people with breathing problems such as asthma and bronchitis. It can also be used to treat an overactive thyroid and a skin condition known as sporotrichosis.
Why is taking potassium iodide beneficial to our diet?
Potassium iodide is beneficial for various reason, but chief among them is that it helps to filter the body. Potassium iodide has been cited for its potential to filter out harmful mercury, fluorides, chlorides and bromides from tissues and cells. It also helps reduce arthiritis risk and can promote hormonal balance. It also reduces the risk of developmental and growth problems.
Potassium iodide is known as the thyroid mineral, which indicates that it can help keep iodine levels in the thyroid balanced. If iodine levels in the body are not optimal, this can potentially lead to hyper or hypothyroidism. Potassium iodide can also act as anti-fungal, as solutions of potassium iodide have been shown to be effective in treating cutaneous sporotrichosis, a type of fungal infection.
What is the recommended use of my Potassium Iodide USP?
Protect your thyroid gland from radioactive iodine damage (from a nuclear accident) with USP Grade Potassium Iodide (KI). Use 130 mg of Iodine per person per day until all fallout has dissipated. It is OK to use as iodine supplement.
How much potassium iodide (KI) should a person take?
The FDA has approved two different forms of KI—tablets and liquid—that people can take by mouth after a nuclear radiation emergency. The less than saturated Potassium Iodide solution made with TransDerma Minerals Potassium Iodide USP contains 130 mg per 5 mL (1 teaspoon) which equals one adult dose.
According to the FDA, the following doses are appropriate to take after internal contamination with (or likely internal contamination with) radioactive iodine:
Adults should take 130 mg (five mL - 1 teaspoon - of less than saturated solution).
Women who are breast feeding should take the adult dose of 130 mg (five mL - 1 teaspoon - of less than saturated solution).
Children between 3 and 18 years of age should take 65 mg (2.5 mL - 1/2 teaspoon - of less than saturated solution).
Children who are adult size (greater than or equal to 150 pounds) should take the full adult dose, regardless of their age.
Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years of age should take 32 mg (1.25 mL - 1/4 teaspoon - of less than saturated solution).
This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing infants and children.
Newborns from birth to 1 month of age should be given 16 mg (.63 mL - 1/8 teaspoon - of less than saturated solution).
This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing newborn infants.
Less than saturated Potassium Iodide (KI) solutions, when properly mixed, should give even more accurate dosages because there is more solution overall to be measured out per dose. For example, mixing and dissolving exactly 26 grams of Potassium Iodide USP into a one liter bottle of water produces 1000 ml of Potassium Iodide solution with a strength of 130 mg for each 5 ml (1 teaspoon) of that Potassium Iodide (KI) solution.
There are 200 of those 5 ml servings in that 1000 ml (1 liter). Five ml can be easily and accurately measured out with a common graduated medicine dropper or one teaspoon.
Why should I consider a liver detox?
Many of toxins in our body pass through our liver, where they will eventually be removed from our blood. Most of us also do not realize that our liver is instrumental in the breakdown of fat. A liver that is functioning poorly would struggle to do its job, which may lead to bloating, chronic fatigue, slow metabolism, poor digestion, inability to lose weight, mood swings, occasional headaches and brain fog.
