Choline Complex™

Choline Complex™

Product #235

Choline Complex™ is a 100% vegetarian Food supplement that is intended to supply real food choline.

180 Tablets | $33.98

Product Details

Choline is crucial for sustaining life. It modulates the basic signaling processes within cells, is a structured element in membranes, and is vital during critical periods in brain development”. It was discovered in 1862, yet it was not recognized as a required nutrient for humans until 1998.

Choline has several important functions:  it is a source of methyl groups needed to make S-adenosylmethionine, it is a part of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and it is a part of the predominant phospholipids in membranes (phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin).  Betaine, formed from choline, is an important osmolyte in the kidney glomerulus and helps with the reabsorption of water from the kidney tubule.  Although they represent a smaller proportion of the total choline pool, important metabolites of choline include platelet-activating factor, choline plasmalogens, lysophosphatidylcholine, phosphocholine, and glycerophosphocholine” [1].  
 
Regarding Choline, WebMD reports, “Athletes use it for bodybuilding and delaying fatigue in endurance sports” [2].  Low levels of Choline have been found in endurance athletes and supplementation may decrease fatigue during exercise [3].  
 

The official Recommended Daily Intake of Choline is as low as 125 mg per day for infants up to 6 months of age to as high as 550 mg per day for lactating women (the RDI for non-lactating women is 450 mg per day) [1].  The RDI for adult males is 550 mg per day [1].   
Many people simply take choline to feel better. 

Other ingredients: Fatty Acid from Palm Kernel, Silica.
Suggested use: Serving size or as recommended by your health care professional. Adjust usage according to nutritional lifestyle requirements.

Vegetarian Adrenal™

Vegetarian Adrenal™

#783

Vegetarian Adrenal is a 100% vegan Food supplement intended to nutritionally support the adrenal glands and help support biochemical imbalances associated with cortisol production. The adrenal glands play a role in energy, stress, mood, and even pain control. The adrenal glands have probably the greatest store of vitamin C in the body. 

90 Capsules | $39.98

Product Details

Vegetarian Adrenal is basically Food intended for the adrenal glands (it is not advised if breastfeeding). If additional endocrine support is indicated, consider adding Vegetarian Thyro or Vegetarian Tyrosine.

Acerola Cherry is one of the most vitamin C dense Foods (the adrenal glands tend to store vitamin C in the body [1]) Not only does it have free radical scavenging abilities, it also has been shown to increase the antioxidant abilities of some other foods [2].

Ashwagandha, Withania somnifera, is considered to be an herb to help deal with stress.  An animal study, “concluded that ashwagandha possesses adaptogenic, cardiotropic, cardioprotective and anticoagulant properties” [3].

Carob Pod Ceratonia siliqua is a natural Food source high in the amino acid serine (see L-Serine below) [4].  In addition, research has concluded, “The presence of substances with central benzodiazepine activity in carob extracts seems of great importance in view of the possibility to use carob extract as potential natural products with anxiolytic-sedative effects” [5].

Kelp is Food that supplies trace minerals [6], and adrenal glands contain trace minerals.

L- Serine is an non-essential amino acid, that along with some others help produce the “enzyme that catalyzes the first step in the conversion of circulating dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), pregnenolone or 17alpha-hydroxypregenolone to produce the appropriate, active steroid hormone(s): estradiol, testosterone, progesterone, aldosterone or cortisol respectively” [7].  L-serine is known to help restore compromised adrenal function, as well as helping to reduce elevated cortisol levels.

Potassium is found in plants [8]. Potassium is the leading intracellular electrolyte and is necessary for electrolyte balance, stimulating aldersterone for the adrenal glands [8].  The late Dr. Bernard Jensen wrote the following about potassium deficiencies, “The mind becomes chaotic, unpredictable, highly imaginative and unorthodox.  States of mind alternate between joy and melancholy and even excitability…Potassium Must be Supplied in Food Form” [9] (bolding his).

Rice bran is a Food source of B vitamins [7], which are often used for stress, anxiety, and adrenal support.  

Tomato powder contains lycopene in tomato powder.  The powder, which is how it is in Vegetarian Adrenal, appears to be more bioavailable than that in fresh tomatoes, and tomato powder has (by weight) 26-144 times more lycopene than fresh tomatoes [7]. “Among the common dietary carotenoids lycopene has the highest singlet oxygen quenching capacity in vitro. Other outstanding features are its high concentration in… {the} adrenal gland” [10]. Studies suggest it has a variety of protective effects [7].

Vitamin B-5 Pantothenate is “the number one adrenal strengthener” [11]. Severe deficiency of vitamin B-5 causes numbness in toes and painful burning in feet, and can cause anemia, skin problems, and adrenal problems [12].  Because of cortisol’s anti-allergy properties this may be why many advise pantothenate for allergies.  “Synthetic D-pantothenate…is available as a calcium or sodium salt” [12], and is sold in forms such as sodium D-pantothenate or calcium D-pantothenate or sometime just listed as pantothenic acid [13].  Other synthetic “multivitamin preparations commonly contain its…alcohol derivative, panthenol” [12].  “Dexopanthenol is a synthetic form which is not found naturally” [13].  USP pantothenic acid is made by condensing isobutyraldehyde with formaldehyde [14].  “Pantothenic acid consists of pantoic acid in amide linkage to beta-alanine”, but vitamin B-5 is not found that way in nature, pantothenate forms are [15].  The vegetarian foods which are highest in pantothenate are nutritional yeast, brown rice, peanuts, and broccoli [12,13,15].  Nutritional yeast and brown rice supply the vitamin B-5 in Vegetarian Adrenal, and are two of the best natural sources of food pantothenate [12,13].

Vitamin B-6  : “An understanding of the various forms [of vitamin B-6] and quantities of these forms in foods is important in the evaluation of the bioavailability and metabolism of vitamin B-6” [16]. One of the forms that vitamin B-6 exists in is the form “5’0-(beta-D-glycopyransosyl) pyridoxine.  To date only plant foods have been found to contain this interesting form of vitamin B-6” [16].  Yeast and rice bran contain more natural food vitamin B-6 than other foods [17].   Reports suggest that food vitamin B-6 is superior to forms [18].  At least one synthetic vitamin B-6 analogue has been found to inhibit natural vitamin B-6 action [19].  Pyridoxine HCL (hydrochloride) which is found in most non-food supplements is made with petroleum ester combined with HCL and processed with formaldehyde [20].  “Disorders treated with (B-6)…include Down’s syndrome, autism, hyperoxaluria, gestational diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, depression, and diabetic neuropathy” [12].  Many problems including anemias, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), PMS, cardiovascular complaints, confusion, depression, irritability, and certain immune problems have responded to vitamin B-6 [21].  A study of healthy elderly individuals found about 1/3 had marginal vitamin B-6 deficiency [21].

Vitamin C in the human body, is found in the greatest abundance in the adrenal glands, which demonstrates that many aspects of adrenal physiology require vitamin C.  Foods generally contain two biologically active forms of vitamin C [12,22,23], yet most synthetic vitamin C only contains isolated ascorbic acid [24,25].  One M.D. writes, “If anything helps you battle the effects of stress, it is vitamin C” [26]; vitamin C “can readily donate electrons to quench a variety of reactive free radical and oxidative species and is easily returned to its reduced state…The vitamin efficiently scavenges hydroxyl, peroxyl, and superoxide radicals, as well as reactive peroxide, singlet oxygen, and hypochlorite species” and protects against lipid and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) peroxidation” [12].

Many people simply take Vegetarian Adrenal as a Food supplement to help them feel better.

Vegetarian Thyro™

Vegetarian Thyro™

#796

Vegetarian Thyro is a 100% vegan Food supplement intended to nutritionally support the thyroid and improve metabolism. Vegetarian Thyro is basically Food intended for thyroid gland. If additional endocrine support is indicated, consider adding Vegetarian Adrenal or Vegetarian Tyrosine.

90 Capsules | $28.98

Product Details

The thyroid is responsible for hormones that affect mood, improve circulation, increase metabolism, retain calcium, affect cardiovascular health, improve tolerance to temperature fluctuations, minimize body fat, reduce the tendency for obesity, minimize menstrual disturbances, improve energy, reduce the dryness of skin and hair, and reduce premature hair loss. Yet thyroid problems are very common.

Unfortunately, medical interventions are often incomplete as blood tests often do not recognize certain forms of hypothyroidism. 

Furthermore, even when found medically, most medical interventions are limited to the prescribing of synthetic T4 (levothyroxine), which tends to shut the thyroid down, and thus possibly increasing the tendency for osteoporosis, as well as sometimes increasing mood problems and some other symptoms associated with low thyroid function.

Many people simply take Vegetarian Thyro™ as a Food supplement to help them feel better.
