*NOW AVAILABLE* R Lipoic Acid Super Antioxidant-Activity Formula
R Lipoic is NOW available. Bottle of 120 gelatin capsules for price of 60.
R (+) Lipoic Acid contains the "R" form of Alpha Lipoic Acid. It may support a healthy response to aging and have antioxidant activity in the brain. It also may support the body's response to blood sugar regulation.* 100 mg, 120 capsules.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a racemic mixture of both "S" and "R" forms of Alpha Lipoic Acid. The "R" form is the biologically active component of Alpha Lipoic Acid which means that it is the only form that one's body can absorb and synthesize thus making R-Lipoic supplementation inherently more efficient and effective. R Lipoic alone may be considerably more effective than racemic Alpha Lipoic Acid*.
The significant antioxidant activity of R Lipoic Acid
R Lipoic Acid exhibits antioxidant-activity*. For example, R Lipoic is able to increase or maintain levels of other important antioxidants such as glutathione peroxidase, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Coenzyme Q10. R Lipoic may also support the body's response to inflammation processes*. R lipoic also has other benefits. It supports healthy glucose metabolism* and R Lipoic is helpful for skin health and skin vitality*. We suggest using R Lipoic with our other skin care product and suggest our Skin Care Package.
Why is oxidation harmful?
Oxidation is inherently toxic to cells. It is believed the oxidation, and the inflammation it causes, leads to cell death and may have cascading negative effects.

Somniphan is a safe and effective sleep-aid that contains L-Tryptophan, GABA and Melatonin. These three ingredients work synergistically to help support the body's sleep processes*. 30 capsules per bottle.
Somniphan is non habit forming, is free from side effects and can be used regularly to help encourage relaxation, support a healthy response to stress and anxiety and most importantly help one restore and maintain healthy sleep patterns*. Somniphan is suggested for: individuals who experience sleeplessness, individuals who experience frequent night wakings due to external, emotional factors, or for men who experience frequent night wakings due to prostate overactivity and frequent nighttime urination. Somniphan may also be helpful for individuals who experience mood swings or negative outlook and as a consequence have trouble sleeping*.
What is L-Tryptophan?
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that aids in protein synthesis and is a precursor to many compounds, including the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin, acting as a neurotransmitter in the Central Nervous System(CNS), affects hunger, mood, aggression and sleep. The body can also metabolize serotonin into melatonin. Low levels of serotonin, whether caused by improper uptake or metabolism, may negatively affect sleep. Supplementing with L-Tryptophan may help support healthy serotonin levels and consequently support healthy sleep*.
What is GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric Acid)?
GABA is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the body, which means that it regulates neuronal excitability. In so doing, GABA promotes relaxation and may dampen anxiety. It also has an analgesic effect. Sleeplessness has a variety of causes, stress, anxiety and pain being main contributors. As a supplement, GABA may help support restful sleep and support healthy mood*.
What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is naturally secreted by the pineal gland. Melatonin supports the regulation of the body's day/night metabolic rates. Its secretion is synchronized with our biological clock which dictates the daily changes upon the body's metabolic activity. This is known as our circadian rhythms. One of Melatonin's most popular uses as a supplement is to help to restore proper sleep patterns. Melatonin also exhibits excellent antioxidant activity, it supports heart health and a healthy immune system*. Often when sleeplessness is caused by aberrations in one's sleeping schedule, for instance, jet lag, frequent nighttime urination (in men, due to enlarged prostate), or night-shift working hours, the body and mind may be so exhausted that an individual may have trouble falling and staying asleep. Melatonin can be helpful in aiding the body to resume a proper 7-8 hour sleep cycle. (Melatonin is sourced from bovine pineal gland)*.
How to use Somniphan
1 Servings (1 Capsule) 30-45 minutes before bedtime. 2 servings recommended if one capsule is not found to be sufficient to support healthy sleep.
Allergen Statement: This formula is free of yeast, egg, corn, soy, wheat, milk, starch, fish, shellfish, nuts or tree nuts, artificial colors or preservatives.

Do not use Somniphan if you are currently using MAO inhibitors or SSRI medications but most importantly contact physician FIRST before adding Somniphan to your daily regimen, especially if taking other dietary supplements or medications. Do not use Somniphan with other sleep aid medications or dietary supplements. if you find that upon wakening you are sluggish or drowsy, reduce dosage to 1 capsule daily. Melatonin is not recommended for those who suffer from asthma.
Melatonin is a natural substance secreted by the pineal gland. Melatonin helps regulate the body's day/night metabolic rates. Its secretion is synchronized with our biological clock which dictates the daily changes upon the body's metabolic activity: our circadian rhythms. It may help support return to normal sleep rhythms especially those with occasional sleep disturbances or for those who travel*.

Folixor Plus tablets contain adjuvants that further enhance bioavailability and ensure effectiveness. These adjuvants are: Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, and the amino acid L-Leucine.
Body Effective AND Cost effective
Folixor PLUS not only delivers Folic Acid effectively and efficiently, it does so without a high price tag. Folixor PLUS is ideal for every individual, even those who desire support for folic acid metabolization.
What is Folinic Acid?
Folinic Acid is 5-formyl-tetrahydrofolate, a "body ready" or bioactive form of folic acid. This means that folinic acid is more easily processed by the body because the body can turn it into an active or usable form of folate. It requires no enzymatic conversion and therefore does not contribute to elevated folate blood serum levels. Folinic Acid may also be utilized more easily than the more expensive 5 methyl tetrahydrofolate known as "5-methyl".
What roles do Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and L-Leucine play?
Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 serve as important cofactors for folic acid absorption. They improve folic acid bioavailability. The Amino Acid L-Leucine improves overall Folixor PLUS bioavailability by also increasing absorption of folic acid and the other B Vitamins.
Why is our high bioavailability, slow-dissolving tablet better?
Folixor PLUS tablets are formulated to be dissolved almost completely in the side of the mouth. Alternately, the tablets may also be slightly chewed and then the bits swirled around in the mouth until swallowed. This method of delivery ensures maximum bioavailability. This type of delivery should be the preferred method for those who need support with folic acid absorption.
Who should consider Folixor PLUS tablets?
Folic Acid supplementation is essential for all women of child bearing age. Folic Acid may have additional applications for: cervical health, cognition, mental health, mental acuity, oral hygiene, heart health*. Folixor PLUS is ideal for individuals who need support with folic acid absorption.
Questions about Folixor PLUS and Folic Acid
Why does Folixor PLUS contain Folinic Acid and not 5-methyl?
Folinic Acid is 5-formyl-tetrahydrofolate, a "body ready" form of folic acid. This means that folinic acid is more easily processed by the body because the body can turn it into an active or usable form of folate. 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate is another form of body-ready folic acid that offers good bioavailability but it has been shown that Folinic acid provides exceptional bioavailability of folic acid EVEN FOR THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO NEED SUPPORT WITH FOLIC ACID ABSORPTION.
What are other health benefits of Folic Acid?
Due to its primary role in DNA & RNA synthesis, Folic Acid supports healthy DNA production and healthy cellular formation. Folic Acid may support healthy memory and healthy cognition. Folic Acid applied topically to gums supports periodontal health. Folic acid is an antagonist to the amino acid homocysteine and homocysteine may contribute to weaker bones*.
Why supplement with Folic Acid?
Many common medications deplete folic acid reserves. Supplementation of Folic Acid can replenish this crucial B vitamin. Medications that are known to deplete folic acid are: methothrexate, antacids, anti-inflammatory medications, antibiotic medications, anticonvulsant medications, antidiabetic medications, birth control medications, cholesterol lowering medications, diuretics, ulcer medications. Low levels of folate may adversely affect mood.
Can't I just get folic acid from my diet?
A diet rich in vegetables (leafy greens) will provide a good source of folic acid. However, folic acid is easily depleted and many individuals are actually deficient in folic acid because they have a genetic problem that interferes with its metabolism. Did you know that synthetic folic acid actually absorbs better than that consumed from one's diet? Especially for individuals with folic acid concerns, Folixor PLUS is an excellent choice.
What about studies linking Folic Acid intake with cancer?
Take 1 dose daily or as directed by your health professional. Higher milligram quantities are available only for individuals under physician supervision. Folixor PLUS is an excellent supplement for individuals who are on the go (and want to keep the supplement in their desk).
Allergen Statement: This formula is free of yeast, egg, gluten, soy, wheat, milk, starch, fish, shellfish, peanut or tree nut, artificial colors or preservatives. Dextrose is derived from corn sugar but considered 99% free of corn allergens.
Interactions and Precautions: 1mg of folic acid is considered the UTL dosage of folic acid and should be used with physician supervision. Folic Acid supplementation may mask B12 deficiency and/or pernicious anemia; please consult your physician if you are concerned about B12 levels.
