Ingredients Artemisia annua (sweet wormwood): Artemisinin, extracted from the medicinal plant Artemisia sp. is an effective anti-malarial drug. In 2015, elucidation of the effectiveness of artemisinin as a potent anti-malarial drug was even acknowledged with a Nobel prize. (1) Recently, it has also been investigated for their antineoplasia properties, with interesting and promising results. (2) Artemisia annua also supports various condi- tions such as diabetes, heart diseases, arthritis and eczema and possess- es various effects such as antibacterial, antioxidant, anticoccidial, and antiviral effects. (3) Thymus tissue: Thymus tissue concentrate derived from pure, lyophilized tissue concentrates from New Zealand, which is considered the cleanest and most environmentally responsible country to source from on the planet. Sodium Alginate (Grifola frondosa and Ganoderma lucidum): Sodium alginate is a soluble dietary fiber extracted from brown seaweed and its solution has been used to support GUT healing, bind toxins in the intestinal tract, and as a hemostatic agent to support gastrointestinal bleeding due to gastric ulcers. (4, 5) Turkey-tail Mushroom extract (Coriolus Versicolor): The polysaccharo-peptide (PSP) isolated from the Coriolus versicolor (Yun zhi) has its effects on various immune subsets, and the positive clinical data has led to its widespread adoption as an adjunct in neoplasias and immune therapies. Ancient Chinese formulations of CV have long been believed to generally promote health, strength, and longevity. Laboratory studies suggest it may have antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-tumor properties. (6, 7) Monolaurin (monolaurate): Monolaurin is a natural compound found in coconut oil and is known for its protective biological activities as an antimicrobial agent. It has also been shown to have antifungal activity against a variety of biofilms as measured by decreased numbers of viable biofilm-associated bacteria as well as decreased biofilm biomass. (8, 9) Enzyme blend (Glucoamylase, Chitosanase, Cellulase, Hemicellulase, Pectinase, Beta-Glucanase): Our unique enzyme formula supports normal gastrointestinal function and microbiota by assisting degradation of biofilm of bacteria and yeast common with chronic infections. It has been shown that enzymes act synergistically, as demonstrated by crystal violet staining of static biofilms, significantly reducing viable cell counts compared to individual enzyme treatment in the dynamic model. (10) The biofilm matrix is the glue that holds cells together and can be key to protect invading species and up to 80% of human bacterial infections are biofilm associated.

Soft Tissue Support Pack combines the functional formulations of four top products in a single pack to create the ideal acute nutritional protocol for soft tissue and muscle support. It promotes healthy connective tissue, supports the body’s healing process and relieves post-workout muscle soreness and stiffness, all while maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Soft Tissue Support Pack includes the following supplements: 2 Traumeric capsules, 3 Vascuzyme tablets, 2 GABAnol capsules and 1 C-Flav capsule. These ingredients provide a multidimensional approach for soft tissue support delivered in convenient packets for ease of use and better compliance. Overview Inflammation is a natural part of the body’s immune response, a cascade triggered to protect the body and maintain normal tissue repair. Soft Tissue Support Pack provides a full spectrum of botanicals, enzymes and micronutrient factors to maintain normal inflammatory balance and address discomfort of ligaments and tendons from exercise. In addition, gamma- aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glycine are included to support muscular relaxation. The addition of flavonoids, such as quercetin and rutin provide additional soft tissue and blood vessel support. Turmeric (Complete Turmeric Matrix)† Whole-root turmeric and its active components have been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. In herbal medicine of old, practitioners used teas, tinctures and extracts of all types. In the 21st century, as research grew on the benefits of turmeric, the focus shifted to identifying and isolating one individual compound, curcumin, rather than delivering the comprehensive benefits of a matrix of turmeric bioactives. As a result, concentrating curcumin led to poor absorption and pharmaceutical methods were applied to bypass the gut and increase its bioavailability. The glaring disadvantage of applying this pharmaceutical model to botanicals is that it misses the benefits of other bioactives present within the turmeric matrix and their positive effects on the microbiome. New research on turmeric shows the additional bioactives in turmeric have additional benefits and enhance bioavailability. The Complete Turmeric Matrix includes compounds from the entire turmeric root, all working together as nature intended to deliver better results. The Complete Turmeric Matrix formulation contains standardized amounts of 45%–55% curcuminoids, 2%-6% turmerin protein and 3%-8% volatile oil, plus other components that make up the whole turmeric root.1,2 This matrix of bioactive compounds supports a healthy GI tract, enhances detoxification, creates a healthy microbiome, and helps maintain normal inflammatory balance. The bioactives in CTM support the gut lining and immune system, modulate acute nervous system signaling, low mood and fatigue, and provide cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity via antioxidant mechanisms. CTM also plays a crucial role in maintaining inflammatory balance in a variety of tissues due to its strong MAPK and NFkB-modulating properties. Studies show CTM supports balanced inflammation in the joints and the GI tract. Proteolytic Enzymes (as Vascuzyme)† Soft Tissue Support Pack also includes Vascuzyme, which provides the powerful enzymes bromelain, trypsin, amylase, lipase, lysozyme, cellulase, peptidase and alpha chymotrypsin. This combination has been used for many years in Europe as part of a multidimensional approach for tissue repair and recovery. Vascuzyme studies have highlighted the efficacy of systemic enzyme therapy for a variety of uses, including maintaining normal inflammatory balance, nasal passage health, bronchial health, musculoskeletal health and exercise-related recovery. Flavonoids (as C-Flav)† Quercetin, hesperidin complex, hibiscus flowers, and rutin are also included in the Soft Tissue Support Pack to help support healthy capillary permeability and stabilize tendon and ligament function. GABA and Glycine (as GABAnol)† GABA and glycine are amino acids that impart neurotransmitter activity within the central nervous system (CNS). GABA and glycine both have an inhibitory (calming) effect in the CNS promoting a sense of relaxation in the brain and body by decreasing nerve cell over-firing.

Ortho-Molecular Betaine & Pepsin - 225 Capsules $21.96 $36.60
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS Provides Hydrochloric Acid to Help Maintain Gastric pH Promotes Healthy Digestion, Especially of Dietary Protein Supports Overall Nutrient Absorption OVERVIEW Symptoms of indigestion are often mistaken for excessive gastric acid. This leads many to take acid blockers in attempt to lower stomach acid, when the true culprit is likely to be insufficient levels of hydrochloric acid (HCl). Betaine & Pepsin provides two essential components of healthy digestion: HCl and the digestive enzyme, pepsin. HCl is vital for the proper digestion of protein and the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Pepsin is one of the first enzymes to initiate protein digestion and works in synergy with HCl to provide complete protein digestive support. Suggested Use: 1-2 capsules before each meal, or as recommended by your health care professional INGREDIENT BENEFITS Betaine Betaine (also known as trimethylglycine) is a natural substance found in foods such as beets and spinach. Betaine HCl, the acidic form of betaine, has been used for years to support digestion and absorption due to its ability to lower gastric pH. Pepsin One of the first enzymes to initiate protein digestion, pepsin is synthesized in the parietal cells of the gastric mucosa. Pepsin is released by the chief cells and is responsible for breaking down proteins into peptides. This activation sets up a chain reaction that produces more pepsin, allowing for better protein digestion.
Ortho-Molecular Cerenity - 90 Capsules $29.58 $49.30
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS Supports a State of Calmness and Relaxation Increases Serotonin and GABA production in the Brain Addresses Neurotransmitter Signaling Systems Supports Occasional Sleeplessness OVERVIEW Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that regulate mood, memory, sleep cycle and daily stress.

Ortho-Molecular Mucosagen - 180 capsules $55.20 $92.00
NOTE: This product is NOT recommended for those with cancer Mucosagen is a comprehensive formula designed to help support barrier function of the gastrointestinal lining. The mucosal epithelium serves multiple purposes including allowing nutrients from the diet to be absorbed and digested while simultaneously serving as a barrier that protects against unwanted food particles, toxins and microorganisms from passing directly into the body. Mucosagen includes a synergistic blend of ingredients that support the health of the GI lining while maintaining normal inflammatory balance and liver detoxification pathways to support overall health. Overview Under healthy conditions, the GI tract contains a semi- permeable epithelial mucosal barrier which protects against the unwanted passage of food antigens, toxins, and microorganisms from crossing directly into the bloodstream. Several factors can affect the integrity of the epithelial barrier including medications (particularly NSAIDs), stress, alcohol intake, injury, trauma, microbial imbalance and poor nutrition. Reducing the impact of these factors and preserving a healthy GI tract is critical for maintaining long-term health. In order to protect the mucosal barrier, a thick, complex layer of mucus is produced. From the stomach and throughout the intestines, the mucosa consists of a single layer of epithelial cells covered by a layer of secreted mucus. Like saliva, mucus is a complex fluid that is rich in mucin glycoproteins . Mucin shields epithelial tissue from mechanical and chemical stress. Mucin also provides a broad range of immune support which helps maintain microbial balance. Mucosagen includes L-glutamine, gamma oryzanol, N-acetyl glucosamine and lactoferrin to help support the health of the intestinal mucosal barrier and maintain healthy mucin production. Mucosagen also includes the additional benefit of N-acetyl cysteine and milk thistle to promote detoxification of harmful chemicals. L-Glutamine† L-glutamine is an amino acid which serves as a primary source of fuel for the small intestines. Epithelial cells in the small intestines (enterocytes) use L-glutamine as their metabolic fuel which helps maintain mucosal growth, structure, and function.1 Under times of stress, L-glutamine has been shown to become a conditionally essential amino acid, helping to regenerate and maintain a healthy mucosal barrier.2 An increase in intestinal permeability can result in increased exposure to food, toxins and microorganisms. Inflammatory signals that are released during this exposure can trigger the stress hormone cortisol to increase the breakdown and utilization of L-glutamine in the small intestines.3 L-glutamine provides the primary fuel source for the gut mucosal lining to maintain the health of gut tissue.3 Gamma Oryzanol† Gamma oryzanol is a natural component of rice bran oil. It is a mixture of ferulic acid esters of sterol and triterpene alcohols. Rice bran oil includes about 1-2% gamma oryzanol, which it functions as a highly effective antioxidant in the GI tract. Gamma oryzanol has been shown to protect gastric mucosa from free radical stress and maintain normal inflammatory balance by inhibiting NFkB in macrophages.4,5 N-Acetyl Glucosamine† N-acetyl glucosamine is the acetylated form of glucosamine. N-acetyl glucosamine is a mucin precursor and has been shown to increase the production of mucus within the GI tract.6 Colonic mucus production has been shown to be deficient in individuals with GI challenges. Lactoferrin† Directions 2 capsules three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional. Does Not Contain Gluten, corn, yeast, artificial colors and flavors. Cautions If you are pregnant or nursing, consult your physician before taking this product. Lactoferrin is a glycoprotein that is naturally found in colostrum, a milky fluid produced by the mammary glands. Lactoferrin plays a major role in supporting immune health including both innate and adaptive immune functions. Lactoferrin helps maintain normal microbial and inflammatory balance in the GI tract.9 In animal studies, orally administered lactoferrin supported the health of the GI tract in mice, and provided protection against NSAID activity.10 Research has also indicated that lactoferrin can help maintain normal inflammatory balance in the gut by inhibiting TNFα and promoting cytokine IL-8.10 Silymarin (Milk Thistle Seed Extract) † Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is an annual plant indigenous to Europe and the United States and has been used for centuries as an herbal medicine to boost liver function. The extract of milk thistle has silymarin, the biologically active component found in the seeds and leaves of this plant. Silymarin provides liver- protective effects via several mechanisms of action, including inhibiting lipid peroxidation;11 supporting liver detoxification through enhancement of the liver’s glucuronidation pathways;12 and protection against glutathione depletion.13 Silymarin has been shown to increase hepatocyte protein synthesis resulting in hepatic tissue function.14 N-Acetyl Cysteine† N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a sulfyhydryl containing amino acid that is commonly used to support liver and gut health. NAC is an effective precursor to the major antioxidant in the body, glutathione. Oral supplementation with NAC has been shown to increase intracellular glutathione levels.15 NAC also stimulates a specific detoxification pathway in the liver called glutathione conjugation.16 Micronutrient Blend† Mucosagen includes the synergistic nutrient combination of zinc, vitamin A, and biotin, which are crucial for supporting GI health. Zinc is an essential mineral that is widely recognized for its role in gut and immune health. Zinc has been shown to strengthen GI barrier function by supporting the structure of tight junctions.16 Vitamin A is crucial for supporting GI integrity, maintaining normal inflammatory balance by reducing NFkB, and supporting mucus production.17 Biotin is an essential nutrient that is produced by several species of intestinal bacteria. Biotin deficiency is often present in individuals with GI challenges.18 Directions 2 capsules three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.

Ortho-Molecular Paracid Forte - 90 Capsules $38.70 $64.50
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS Supports Healthy Microbial Balance in the GI Tract Supports Healthy Immune Function OVERVIEW Gastrointestinal health is directly affected by factors, such as exposure to microbes, poor diet and a stressful lifestyle, that can negatively impact immune function. The prevalence of refined sugars and carbohydrates and the low presence of fiber in the modern diet has been directly linked to the alteration of the colonic environment. Since the body’s immune system is a complex and dynamic defense system, healthy microbial balance and antioxidant support help ensure more optimal immune function. The ingredients in Paracid Forte support healthy microbial balance in the GI tract by supplying botanicals shown to create a hostile environment for microbes. Suggested Use: 1 capsule three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional INGREDIENT BENEFITS Wormwood/Artemisinin Wormwood is a fern-like plant commonly found throughout Asia, and artemisinin is its active constituent. Artemisinin is a sesquiterpene lactone, a special compound shown to have strong microbial-balancing properties. Olive Leaf Widely consumed in the Mediterranean, olives contain numerous phenolic compounds, including oleuropein, which have demonstrated broad spectrum microbial-balancing and antioxidant properties. Black Walnut The hulls of the black walnut have been used since Greek and Roman times to support those with intestinal complaints. Black walnut has compounds known as tannins, which affect the structural stability of various microbes. Berberine Sulfate Berberine is an alkaloid extracted from plant roots that is commonly found in barberry, turmeric and Oregon grape. Berberine extracts have shown significant ability to influence the activity of a variety of organisms that affect human health.
Ortho-Molecular GlycemaCORE Vanilla $33.60 $56.00
GlycemaCORE is a drink mix formula that supports blood sugar balance already within normal levels. CLINICAL APPLICATIONS Helps Maintain Normal Blood Sugar Levels Supports Healthy Body Weight and Metabolism Promotes a Feeling of Fullness and Reduces Cravings Strengthens Cardiovascular Health INGREDIENT BENEFITS Glucomanan Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber derived from konjac root (Amorphophallus konjac). Guar Gum Fiber Viscous dietary fibers are effective in maintaining satiety but challenging to apply in normal serving sizes in foods due to their viscosity and required high amounts. Guar gum fiber is a near non-viscous soluble fiber that has been proven effective in providing several physiological benefits. According to a 2016 summary of clinical research on the topic, regular intake of guar gum fiber provided significant sustained post-meal satiation effects and minimized the inter-meal calorie intake by about 20% in normal subjects. The intake of guar gum fiber alone or its combination with protein showed acute satiety effects in normal subjects. Alpha Linolenic Acid Flax seeds are a generous source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. The organic flax seeds in GlycemaCORE Whey Protein provide a total of 1.3 g of alpha linolenic acid per scoop, while contributing additional protein, lignans and numerous micronutrients. Alpha Lipoic Acid Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant that affects blood sugar metabolism. Chromium Chromium is a critical element in the GTF, a complex shown to be crucial for glucose uptake into the cells. Vanadyl Sulfate Vanadyl sulfate stimulates glucose uptake within cells helping to use blood sugar more efficiently and support blood sugar balance already within normal levels.
