Digestive enzymes are a Must especially if you don’t have a Gall Bladder

    Digestive Enzymes
    Panplex-2 Phase   Integrative Therapeutics
    60 count $15.20     180 count $43.40

    Are you functioning without a Gall Bladder?  Have you had it removed or any other parts missing due to surgery? Yes, you can live without them, but it hinders your health.  Each organ has a specific roll, and we MUST supplement to help our bodies do what it should naturally.  Especially as we age, we lose 50% HCL every decade, then lose the ability to make more the next decade of our lives.  This is one reason why it’s harder to loss weight as we get older.  Our body simply can’t do it without help.  This is a picture of a current client who started taking digestive enzymes and in a few short days she began to process the food she was eating.  No more “food babies” as I have heard it referred to as, the bloat and pain become so much less.

    Panplex 2-Phase is a dual-action formula that provides support for both the gastric and intestinal phases of digestion.† This dual-phase supplement provides support for more complete digestion in both the stomach and intestinal tract. Panplex 2-Phase combines pancreatic enzymes with hydrochloric acid and pepsin for healthy digestion support.† Phase I gastric support includes hydrochloric acid and pepsin.† Phase II intestinal support includes pancreatin and bile salts in a delayed-release matrix designed to protect against deactivation of enzymes by stomach acids.

        Collagen I and III Dietary Supplement

          Collagen I and III Dietary Supplement
          Collagen M.D.
          7oz $18.95

          Collagen Type I & III together account for 90%
          of the collagen present in the dermis with up to
          60-80% for Collagen Type I and 15-20% for
          Collagen Type III. This collection of fibers is
          responsible for maintaining the structure and
          resistance of tissues and constitutes a dynamic
          network which anchors the skin in the deeper
          layers, thereby creating a support base for the
          skin. In addition to its architectural properties,
          collagen also regulates the activity of fibroblasts,
          playing a role in their migration, proliferation and
          differentiation, and in their adhesion to various
          elements of the extracellular matrix.
          Collagen Type I & III are the main components
          of hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, muscles, gums,
          teeth, bones, blood vessels and eyes.

          In 6oz of water or juice, blend 2 scoops of powder (over 35 years old) or 1 scoop (under 35 years old) or as directed by your physician. Use juice containing Vitamin C or take with a Vitamin C supplement for maximum collagen support.
          For optimal nutritional benefits, take on an empty stomach and wait 20 minutes before eating
          Do not add to milk or other protein dinks/powders as this will decrease the benefits. May be take with other vitamins and minerals.

          Collagen Type I & II …6.6g
Collagen Type I and III protein peptides 
derived from 100% pure bovine collagen.

          Contains no gluten, dairy sucrose, starch, yeast, wheat, corn, cholesterol, fat, additives, colorings, flavorings or preservatives.

          Probiotics Basic Info

            Probiotics in A Nutshell…

            The human gut contains 10x more bacteria than all the human cells in the body. 400 known species equaling 100trillion in the intestinal tract.

            Probiotics are ESSENTIAL for normal digestive, endocrine, and immunological functions of the bowel. They are therapeutic for treatment of variety of gastrointestinal and systemic disorders. Definitely needed if your gall bladder or spleen has been removed.

            Goal is to have an 80 to 20% ratio of good bateria verses harmful bacteria.

            In general, 1 billion CFU’s (colony forming units) is REQUIRED to deliver to the intestines. You can safely take up to 450 billion for patients with IBS, and even 200 billion following liver transplant.

            Do they need to be refrigerated? It is recommended it maximizes freshness. Probiotics that have micro encapsulated with fatty acids are the only exception. Probiotics sold in health stores are often not and have about 30-50% less viable microorganisms that they claim on their label.

            Probiotics live in the absence of oxygen. Dark Glass bottles are recommended. Moisture also kills micro organisms, keep in a cool dark place.

            Deliver systems are important because we want the absorption to happen in the intestines not the stomach. Stomach acid plays apart in breakdowns and absorption.
            The use of antibiotics feeds bacteria growth so it is important to double amounts during infectious times or if you are put on antibiotics or have heavily used them in the past.

            It is important to have B complex vitamins, especially B12, folates, and Vitamin K for probiotics absorption.

            When do you take them? Everyone is different but generally between meals or bed time is ideal so food or stomach acid isn’t interfering with absorption.

            Prebiotics are carbohydrates that are indigestible by the human intestine and selectively stimulate the activity and growth of certain bacteria in the COLON. Most are chains of 2-9 sugar molecules (oligosaccharides). They are commonly found in chicory, asparagus, artichoke, onions, leeks, garlic, and human breast milk. If you want to use food as medicine, consume those veggies. They should pass through the small intestine to the colon.

            There are different strains of probiotics that are more beneficial to your health issues which is why not guessing is important, research is good, but science based research is what professionals do. Knowing your source and trusting your health care practitioner to make the best recommendations for you. They may cost a little more, but why waste money and time guessing when you don’t have to?

            Gut health leads to immune health. If you want to power your body, supplementation is necessary.

            Amino Acids-Benefits & Facts

              100% Vegetarian

              Vegan Friendly

              Superior for Athletes

              Super Amino 23 is pre-digested 100% vegetarian and vegan protein that has been featured in the Physician`s Desk Reference* and is comprised of non-soy legumes.

              Aids in normalizing protein synthesis
              Assists with the stabilization or recovery of muscle strength, endurance, and volume
              Helps keep body tissues firm
              Helps minimize body fat
              May support a weight loss regimen

              Interesting Facts:
              Super Amino 23 is PREDIGESTED protein and it is 400% to 500% more nutritionally effective than isolates from whey casein and safer than soy. “Pre-digested” means Super Amino 23 does not enter the intestines and is absorbed into the lymph system; thus, Super Amino 23 produces no fecal residue. Because it is pre-digested, it is available to the body within 23 minutes of ingestion.

              Super Amino 23 has 99% NNU or Net Nitrogen Utilization, which is why there is no burden on your kidneys or liver like other proteins. This is because the liver and kidneys do not have to clear catabolic waste that comes with the digestion of common dietary protein.

              Super Amino 23 has over 30 clinical studies published on its uses and is listed in the Physician`s Desk Reference.

              Super Amino 23 is protected by 27 international patents and available in North America. (US Patent no. 5,132,113)
              There have been 8 years of field trials on the Super Amino 23
              18 years clinical trials: Super Amino 23 was first used for patients with stomach removed because of cancer. Then, elderly patients were given it for nutrition and recovery of lean tissue. Now, the terminally ill are also given Super Amino 23 to improve their quality of life.

              Medical doctors use Super Amino 23 to maximize protein utilization and minimize the negative effects of protein diets.
              Olympic athletes and fitness buffs around the world use the Super Amino 23.

              Super Amino 23 is also used by the Vatican (through its Caritas Foundation) to treat malnutrition & the effects of starvation in developing countries.

              Super Amino 23 is an all-natural way to build muscle mass, it also maximizes strength & endurance, minimizes body fat, and reduces recovery time.

              The Super Amino 23 formulation can be used for different purposes; as nutrition for people who need more and better protein, as part of a weight control program, for strength building, and as a muscle mass enhancement.
