Red marine algae has been a valued food in Asia for thousands of years due to its highly nutritious qualities. Carrageenans, a family of polysaccharide compounds extracted from algae, have been studied for their unique properties. In vitro studies show that carrageenans aid in a cell's natural defense by significantly minimizing the binding of unfriendly proteins to the cell's surface.
Source Naturals - Vitamin and Herbal Supplement Providers! Source Naturals was founded by C.E.O. Ira Goldberg in 1982. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned -- for both the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life -- simply did not exist. Although commonplace today, the idea of using many different nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, and nutraceuticals in one formulation was a rarity.
5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an intermediate in the natural conversion of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies have shown that 5-HTP increases the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body. Increased brain serotonin levels may produce positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite regulation, melatonin production and maintaining a healthy sleep cycle. Source Naturals 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is an amino acid-like compound that is related to choline and may assist in the conversion of choline into acetylcholine. Acetylcholine, one of the body's key neurotransmitters, chemically transmits messages from one nerve cell to another.
AHCC without Bioperine - AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a proprietary compound produced by cultivation and enzymatic modification of several species of mushroom mycelia, including shiitake, grown in rice bran extract. Considered a superfood supplement in Japan, AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) has been researched extensively for its immune-enhancement properties.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful fat and water-soluble antioxidant. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is an important component in the energy production process in the cells.
Apple Cider Vinegar has been recognized as a versatile folk remedy used traditionally for many years. It is believed to help regulate the body's acid/alkaline balance. Recent scientific research on animals has suggested several possible mechanisms of action, including the induction of an alkaline response and cell protection in the stomach.
Bee Pollen is a potent source of energizing nutrition. It contains 18 amino acids, DNA, RNA, vitamins A, B-1, B-2, niacin, B-6, B-12, pantothenic acid, folic acid, C, D, E, K, choline, inositol, rutin and other bioflavanoids, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, 10 types of enzymes, coenzymes, and many other nutritional factors.
Beta Glucan is a complex polysaccharide composed of glucose mollecules extracted and purified from the cell wall of common baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Animal and human cell culture studies have shown that beta glucan can stimulate several aspects of immune function, such as phagocytosis and interleukin production. Source Naturals Beta Glucan uses a purification process that removes the mannoproteins and yeast residues that may reduce the effectiveness of beta glucan.
Beta Sitosterol-Phytosterols are natural components of many vegetables and grains. Preliminary scientific research suggests that plant phytosterols may help to support cholesterol wellness when consumed as part of a low cholesterol dietary program.
Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin. It is required by our bodies due to its involvement in carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism.
Black cohosh has been traditionally used by Native Americans to relieve the physiological changes associated with menopause. Clinical research now suggests that Black Cohosh standardized extract may help reduce the occurrence of undesirable hot flashes.
Blue-Green Algae Source Naturals Blue-Green Algae is wildcrafted and harvested in the prime upper regions of Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon, and is of the highest quality available. Its name comes from the two color pigments it contains: phycocyanin, which is blue, and chlorophyll, which is green. Blue-Green Algae also contains significant levels of vitamins, minerals and rich pigment nutrients.
Broccoli Sprouts- Source Naturals Broccoli Sprouts Extract provides 2,000 mcg of sulforaphane daily, equivalent to eating more than a pound of fresh broccoli.
Bromelain is an enzyme from the pineapple plant which accelerates the breakdown of proteins. It is active in a wide pH range and can function in the acidic environment of the stomach. Bromelain may also assist the body in its response to physical stress.
Butcher's Broom is an herb that is the source of ruscogenin and related saponins. It has been widely used since the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, and has been the subject of scientific research in Europe over the past 20 years.
This calcium is specially bonded (chelated) with amino acids to enhance absorption and assimilation. Calcium is perhaps best known for its role in the formation and structure of bones and teeth. It is integral to nerve transmission, muscle movement and several enzyme systems.
Calcium and magnesium work together in several key physiological processes. They are important in the regulation of blood pressure and for healthy muscle function. Calcium is needed for muscle contraction and magnesium for muscle relaxation. In addition, they are both components of skeletal tissue, and magnesium is neccessary for calciums absorption into the bones.
