Appetite Curb Information

Appetite Curb™ contains key amino acids to support the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters involved in appetite control, carbohydrate or fat cravings and mood. Chromium is present to support healthy glucose metabolism and support food intake regulation.

 

5-Hydroxytryptophan (“5-HTP”) is a naturally-occurring amino acid precursor to serotonin. Numerous studies during the ’90s, including those randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled, confirmed the safety and efficacy of 5-HTP in reducing appetite and food intake in obese healthy and non-insulin-dependent diabetic individuals. A 2006 study in mice concluded, “5-HTP-induced anorexia may be mediated by facilitation of leptin secretion.” Vitamins B6 and C are important cofactors in the 5-HTP to serotonin pathway. Among the several serotonin receptors thus identified, the 5HT2C receptors are suspected in control of food intake. Mice without this receptor exhibit increased food intake and become obese.*

DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is a combination of the d- and the I- forms of this essential amino acid. Phenylalanine suppresses appetite by regulating the release of cholecystokinin, which in turns signals satiety in the brain. D-phenylalanine increases endorphins, while L-phenylalanine is an amphetamine-like stimulatory compound. DLPA has been found to elevate mood, curb appetite and reduce pain.*

L-Tyrosine, an essential amino acid is needed for conversion into the catecholamine neurotransmitters stress depletes dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. It is also a precursor for thyroxine. Doctors use tyrosine as a mood elevator, to increase alertness after sleep deprivation and as an appetite suppressant; although support for the latter appears anecdotal.*

L-Glutamine, well-recognized for the gut and immune support, has also been espoused to reduce carbohydrate cravings and support alcohol withdrawal, although the mechanism of action for these benefits is not known.*

Chromium, as chromium picolinate is widely used to optimize insulin function; thereby preventing swings in blood glucose levels that may be responsible for carbohydrate cravings. The mineral in the form present was indeed demonstrated to reduce carbohydrate cravings in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study.*

B - 12 Spray Information

B12 Spray is a dietary supplement that helps support energy as well as healthy blood and nerve cells.* B-12 Spray combines 1000 mcg Vitamin B12 with the active form of vitamin B6 and folic acid in an easy to use spray. Vitamin B-12 Spray is recommended for:

 

  • Athletes
  • Cardiovascular Support*
  • Homocysteine Management*
  • Individuals who have trouble absorbing vitamin B12 from foods*
  • Ongoing fatigue and weakness*
  • People needing GI tract support*
  • Vegetarians and Vegans

About Vitamin B12 Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin. It is required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 functions as a cofactor for the enzyme methionine synthase which causes the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Methionine is required for the formation of S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), a universal methyl donor for almost 100 different substrates, including DNA, RNA, hormones, neurotransmitters, proteins, and lipids. Deficiency of vitamin B12 may occur as a result of an inability to absorb B12 from food. It can also occur in individuals with dietary patterns that exclude animal or fortified foods. VitaminB6 (Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate) Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that performs a wide variety of functions in the body. For example, vitamin B6 is needed for more than 100 enzymes involved in protein metabolism. It is essential for red blood cell metabolism and the nervous and immune systems need vitamin B6 to function efficiently.* B6 is also required for the production of hemoglobin, a protein-based component of red blood cells which is primarily responsible for transferring oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate is the active form (does not require activation by the liver) of Vitamin B6 to provide optimal utilization. Folic Acid Folic Acid is a B vitamin that is important for cell division and is also needed for protein metabolism and repair of RNA and DNA.* Folic Acid supports nerve and cardiovascular health.* Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 are needed for the formation of red blood cells to help increase capillary blood flow.* Folate is the key transferring agent in the transmethylation process and is necessary to turn homocysteine into methionine, which allows the body to recycle or remove homocysteine as needed.* Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, hold nozzle 1” from mouth, spray once and swallow. Use once daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Shake well before each use. * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Super Aloe Information

 

Super Aloe™ is designed to support gastrointestinal (GI) regularity and complement dietary fiber intake. Magnesium citrate is present to support muscle relaxation and bowel elimination. Cape Aloe is added to support normal GI transit time and stool bulk. Triphala, a balanced blend of astringent fruits used extensively in Ayurveda, is present to support all phases of digestion, assimilation, and elimination. Gastrointestinal regularity in turn plays a fundamental role in detoxification, providing a major route for elimination of toxins.*

Super Aloe™ addresses an issue of universal importance: gastrointestinal (GI) health. GI regularity and function is vital to physiological balance and overall well-being. How well the body digests, assimilates, and eliminates metabolic fuel and metabolic waste determines health at the cellular level. Toxins that enter the body must be detoxified and their metabolites must exit the body. Gastrointestinal elimination plays a major role in detoxification by expelling the remnants of toxic molecules. If these harmful remnants are not eliminated, they can recirculate throughout the body.*

Magnesium citrate, the type of magnesium in Super Aloe, is used for colonoscopy preparation. Chosen for its promotion of muscle relaxation and effective elimination of feces through the bowel, magnesium citrate is also highly bioavailable. It should be noted that particular forms of magnesium may be absorbed differently. As a macromineral, magnesium supports cell, tissue, and organ function and participates in over 300 metabolic reactions in the body. This essential mineral plays a pivotal role in energy-producing reactions, detoxification, muscle and nerve function, and skeletal structure. Magnesium can readily become depleted due to inadequate intake, poor absorption, excessive losses, and drug-induced nutrient depletions.*

Cape Aloe (Aloe ferox) has a long history of use in South Africa and continues to be closely studied for its valuable attributes, specifically how it supports GI regularity. The herb is ideally used in the short term to support the elimination of feces and subsequently the elimination of toxins. Recent research suggests that Cape Aloe supports gastrointestinal regularity and is well tolerated. Administration of the herb in animals showed no negative toxicological effects at doses of up to 200 mg/kg body weight over a seven-day period.*

Triphala comprises three sour, astringent fruits: Emblica officinalis (amla), Terminalia belerica (behada), and Terminalia chebula (harada). This tannin-rich herbal compound has been used traditionally for supporting digestion, assimilation, and elimination. Triphala is considered to be a cornerstone of the art and practice of Ayurveda, and it is used throughout India in herbal products. Modern-day clinical trials have confirmed the benefits of traditional uses of triphala, especially gastrointestinal support. Researchers indicated that triphala positively supports appetite, GI health, and rejuvenation.*

Emunctories are organs of elimination: liver, kidneys, lungs, stomach, intestines, pancreas, skin, nose, genitals.
