L-GLUTATHIONE--Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant found in every cell in the body. Glutathione helps stave off the impact of oxidative stress, which may in turn, reduce disease. An article cited in the Journal of Cancer Science and Therapy indicated that glutathione deficiency leads to increased levels of oxidative stress, which might lead to cancer. The chronic inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases can increase oxidative stress. These diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, and lupus. According to one study glutathione helps reduce oxidative stress by either stimulating or reducing the body’s immunological response. 

 

CAT’S CLAW--Cat’s claw is a woody vine native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical Central/South American regions. One of the many benefits of cat’s claw is its ability to help support DNA repair. Cat's claw contains epicatechin, which is a powerful antioxidant. Cat's claw also contains oleanic acid, a substance that fights against viral infections and promotes liver health. This versatile herb is also helpful in detoxification of the intestinal tract, whilst replenishing the friendly bacteria in the intestines. A study published in “Journal of Rheumatology” noted that treatment with Cat’s Claw extract resulted in a reduction in the number of painful joints compared with placebo after 24 weeks of treatment.

 

ASHWAGANDHA--Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng, is a popular Ayurvedic herb and considered a tonic with multiple properties. In the lab, ashwagandha has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects and relax the central nervous system in animals. Ashwagandha supplements may help lower cortisol levels in chronically stressed individuals. Ashwagandha has been shown to increase natural killer cell activity and decrease markers of inflammation. Research has shown that it promotes antioxidant activity that protects nerve cells from harmful free radicals.

 

N-ACETYL-L-CYSTEINE(NAC)--NAC plays an important role in your body’s detoxification process. NAC helps regulate levels of glutamate — the most important neurotransmitter in your brain. By regulating glutamate levels in your brain, NAC may alleviate symptoms of multiple psychiatric disorders and reduce addictive behavior. NAC’s antioxidant and expectorant capacity can improve lung function by decreasing inflammation as well as breaking up mucus.

 

CO-ENZYME Q10--Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a nutrient that occurs naturally in the body. CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant, which protects cells from damage and plays an important part in metabolism. Though still controversial, some preliminary evidence suggests that CoQ10 may help to prevent or treat the adverse effects, such as muscle pains and liver problems, of taking statin-type cholesterol drugs. Preliminary studies have also shown that CoQ10 may slow, but not stop, the progression of Alzheimer's disease. CoQ10 has been shown to help improve heart health and blood sugar regulation. It could also reduce the oxidative damage that leads to muscle fatigue, skin damage and brain and lung diseases.

 

TURMERIC ROOT--Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. It blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases. It neutralizes free radicals on its own but also stimulates your body's own antioxidant enzymes. Curcumin boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF, which increases the growth of new neurons and fights various degenerative processes in your brain.

 

TRANS-RESVERATROL--Resveratrol is part of a group of compounds called polyphenols. They’re thought to act like antioxidants, protecting the body against damage that can put you at higher risk for things like cancer and heart disease. Resveratrol has been shown to protect against cell damage. Studies suggest that it may help prevent joint disease, Alzheimer’s, aging, cataracts, macular degeneration, Lyme disease, neurodegenerative diseases, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.

 

BIFIDOBACTERIUM/LACTOBACILLUS (PROBIOTICS)-- Many chronic health problems and inflammatory diseases are caused by a damaged microbiome where the good bacteria is overrun by harmful bacteria and can't reinforce the gut walls, which results in increased intestinal permeability where bacteria and toxins leak through the intestines into the bloodstream triggering a system-wide immune response of inflammation. They help prevent immune-mediated diseases by improving the gut mucosal immune system. Probiotics protect the body from infections and allow the body to maintain homeostasis by balancing intestinal microflora. Probiotics may help protect the heart by reducing "bad" LDL cholesterol levels and modestly lowering blood pressure.

 

VITAMIN C--Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It is involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth

 

VITAMIN D--Vitamin D plays a substantial role in the regulation of calcium and maintenance of phosphorus levels in the blood, two factors that are extremely important for maintaining healthy bones. Several observational studies have shown an inverse relationship between blood concentrations of vitamin D in the body and risk of type 2 diabetes. Vitamin D is extremely important for regulating cell growth and for cell-to-cell communication.

 

NIACIN--Niacin is one of the eight B vitamins, and it is also called vitamin B3. As a supplement, niacin may help lower cholesterol, ease arthritis and boost brain function, among other benefits. Niacin is a major component of NAD and NADP, two coenzymes involved in cellular metabolism. It plays a role in cell signaling and making and repairing DNA, in addition to acting as an antioxidant.

 

VITAMIN B6--Vitamin B6 plays an important role in mood regulation. Vitamin B6 may also play a role in decreasing high blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine, which have been linked to depression and other psychiatric issues. Vitamin B6 may prevent clogged arteries and minimize heart disease risk. Research shows that people with low blood levels of vitamin B6 have almost double the risk of getting heart disease compared to those with higher B6 levels. This is likely due to the role of B6 in decreasing elevated homocysteine levels associated with several disease processes, including heart disease, macular degeneration, rheumatoid arthritis etc.

 

METHYL TETRAHYDROFOLATE—Folate is one of the B-vitamins and is needed to make red and white blood cells in the bone marrow, convert carbohydrates into energy, and produce DNA and RNA. Taking a supplement that already assumes the active form of L-methylfolate (5-MTHF) can help to make sure that the body is metabolizing and using folate in the right way. Low folate status has been linked to an increased risk of depression and poor response to antidepressant treatment. Folic acid supplements have been found to lower levels of homocysteine. As elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, some researchers have suggested that folic acid and B12 may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

 

VITAMIN B12--Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is an essential vitamin that your body needs but cannot produce. Vitamin B12 plays a vital role in helping your body produce red blood cells. Vitamin B12 may play a vital role in your bone health. Low blood levels of this vitamin have been associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis. Vitamin B12 may improve your mood. The effect of vitamin B12 on mood is not yet fully understood. However, this vitamin plays a vital role in synthesizing and metabolizing serotonin, a chemical responsible for regulating mood. The vitamin may play a role in preventing brain atrophy, which is the loss of neurons in the brain and often associated with memory loss or dementia. Vitamin B12 is involved in energy production in your body and thereby may improve energy levels.

 

MAGNESIUM-- Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. Every cell in your body contains it and needs it to function. It helps convert food into energy, create new proteins from amino acids, create and repair DNA and RNA, help in contraction and relaxation of muscles and regulate neurotransmitters, which send messages throughout your brain and nervous system. Studies have shown that supplementing with it can boost exercise performance for athletes, the elderly and people with chronic disease. There may be a link between depression and magnesium deficiency. Supplementing with it may reduce symptoms of depression in some people. Magnesium also benefits people with type 2 diabetes by improving insulin resistance. Low magnesium intake is linked to chronic inflammation, which is one of the drivers of aging, obesity and chronic disease. People with frequent migraines may have low magnesium levels. Some studies show that supplementing with this mineral may provide relief from migraines.

 

ZINC-- Zinc is considered an essential nutrient, meaning that your body can’t produce or store it. Zinc is necessary for the activity of over 300 enzymes that aid in metabolism, digestion, nerve function and many other processes. It is critical for the development and function of immune cells. Because it is necessary for immune cell function and cell signaling, a deficiency can lead to a weakened immune response. As this mineral plays a critical role in collagen synthesis, immune function and inflammatory response, it is necessary for proper healing. Zinc may relieve oxidative stress and improve immune response by boosting the activity of T-cells and natural killer cells, which help protect your body from infection.
