EstroBal DIM Plus is an ideal combination of DIM (diindolylmethane) and truebroc™ (glucoraphanin) that helps protect estrogen-sensitive tissues by promoting healthy estrogen metabolism and supporting detoxification and neutralization of harmful estrogen metabolites and xenoestrogens.*
Iodine is an essential trace element, recognized for its traditional role in thyroid hormone synthesis. Iodine is directly incorporated into thyroxine (T4) and the biologically active form of the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid hormones regulate metabolism and energy production throughout the body and, in turn, affect core body temperature, growth, reproduction, protein synthesis (including the formation of hair and skin), and neuromuscular function.
In addition to its well-known role in thyroid health, iodine has antioxidant activity, and it plays a critical role in intellectual development, endocrine function, and breast and reproductive system health. Approximately 15-20 mg of iodine is concentrated in the thyroid and thyroid hormones, while 70% of the body’s iodine is distributed in other tissues, including the mammary glands, ovaries, eyes, gastric mucosa, cervix, and salivary glands.
Homocysteine is a natural amino acid made by the body during the metabolism of the essential amino acid methionine. The pathway between methionine and homocysteine is a cycle – methionine metabolizes to homocysteine, and then homocysteine recycles back to become methionine. During this cycle, nutrients are synthesized for biochemical reactions such as detoxification, healthy immune function, ideal joint and cartilage structure, and brain and cardiovascular health. The optimal functioning of this pathway depends on enzymes which require many important nutrients, especially B vitamins. Any roadblock during the process can cause an undesirable elevation in homocysteine levels. The amount of homocysteine in the blood is a great indicator of overall health, with the goal being to maintain a level within normal range, as determined by your health care practitioner.
Methyl-B-12 5,000mcg SL lozenges are a great tasting, high dose vitamin B12 product. Each berry flavored lozenge contains 5000 mcg methylcobalamin, a naturally occurring, highly bioavailable form of vitamin B12. They are designed to deliver B12 through the mucous membranes in order to bypass the need for intrinsic factor, a protein produced in the stomach that is necessary for maximal GI absorption of B12. Vitamin B12 in supplement form also reduces the need for stomach acid, which is typically required to separate food-derived B12 from food proteins. It is important to let the lozenge dissolve slowly and not chew it in order to allow the vitamin to be absorbed properly through the mucosal tissue that lines mouth. Made with GMO-free ingredients.
Osteo Absorb is an all-natural strontium citrate supplement that is clinically proven to increase bone mineral density when combined with the plant calcium, minerals and bone supporting nutrients found in OTS's OsteoSure advanced bone building formula.* Strontium, a trace mineral found in seawater and soil, is a mineral with similar properties to calcium. Research has shown that strontium may play a role in the formation of osteoblasts, new bone forming cells, while at the same time slowing the breakdown of old bone by inhibiting osteoclasts.*
OsteoSure VG is an advanced, professional grade, plant-sourced calcium and bone building formula exclusively available through healthcare professionals.* The highly specialized plant calcium in OsteoSure VG is micronized to ensure optimal absorption by delivering the perfect particle size.* It is a certified organic whole food with over 70 naturally occurring trace minerals and phyto-nutrients.
Iron bis-glycinate is a well-studied, 100% fully-reacted, patented form of iron exclusively from Albion® Laboratories. The amino acid glycine is actually one of the two starting materials the body uses to synthesize hemoglobin. Therefore, Iron Opti-Chelate contributes two key factors. This form of iron has higher bioavailability, lower toxicity, less food reactivity, less food interactions and has a longer shelf life than any other common form of iron.*
Magnesium Opti-Chelate is one of the best absorbed forms of magnesium. Each capsule provides 150 mg of elemental magnesium. This product should not cause any of the unfavorable gastrointestinal symptoms associated with magnesium supplementation due to the very stable chelate formed between two glycine molecules and each magnesium ion via a patented process. Made with non-GMO ingredients.
