Our bodies are actually battlegrounds for infection and diseases. Normal body functions, such as breathing or physical activity, and other lifestyle habits produce substances called free radicals that attack healthy cells. When these healthy cells are weakened, they are more susceptible to cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancers. Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, and carotenoids, which include beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein, help protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals.

In diabetes type II, the main problem is not a deficiency of insulin (remember that it's called "non-insulin-dependent" diabetes), but rather insulin resistance - the inability of the body's cells to utilize insulin efficiently. Some products may help in overcoming insulin resistance by increasing the cells' sensitivity to insulin or may decrease the level of glucose circulating in the blood after a meal thus helping to control blood sugar.

Once bone formation has stopped (somewhere about 28 years of age) peak bone mass is maintained by a process called "remodeling". Remodeling is a process, which involves the continuous breakdown and re-formation of bone. Any factor, which causes a higher rate of bone remodeling, will ultimately lead to a more rapid loss of bone mass and thus more fragile bones.
At the ends of bones, where they meet other bones at the joints, lies valuable biomaterial called cartilage. This elastic tissue cushions your joints together with synovial fluid and together acts as a shock absorber to help reduce the wear and tear that come with functional stress and aging. Degradation may result in inflammation, pain, loss of movement, and loss of a key element of youthfulness. It is at this time you may be looking for products that may help promote bone health and build, protect, and restore cartilage needed to support proper joint function.

These are products that promote and provide heart, artery, and vein health and support.

Thermogenesis is your body's natural means of burning stored fat to produce heat energy at the intercellular level through which calories burn faster. Natural food components and supplements have been found to help trigger this process of thermogenesis and help control carbohydrate and sugar cravings as well as increase muscle tissue. They may assist by decreasing body fat, breaking down fats, inhibiting fat storage, and mobilizing fatty reserves for energy.

There are products that may reduce genetic mutation damage and preventing cellular accumulation of a form of renegade DNA that may accelerate aging. The inhibition of this aging process is called gene silencing because certain genes that are implicated in the process are "silenced. A molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD, is closely associated, as a cofactor. The finding that NAD is crucial for gene silencing and, perhaps, lifespan extension may prove to be one of the most important discoveries of our time. NAD is readily obtainable from niacinamide found in our products DNAble and BioEnhance with DNAble.

Hormones control a number of bodily functions including growth, development, and reproduction. Among the many functions that these chemicals regulate are; metabolism growth, sexual function & reproduction, production of various blood components, reaction to stress, and regulation of other hormones. We have a wide range of hormone replacement supplements to help replace the declining levels we experience as we age.

The immune system protects the body from potentially harmful substances by recognizing and responding to so-called antigens. Antigens are large molecules (usually proteins) on the surface of cells. Substances that contain these antigens are recognized and destroyed by the immune system. The immune response is the way the body recognizes and defends itself against microorganisms, viruses, and substances recognized as foreign and potentially harmful to the body. Make sure that you nourish your immune system appropriately.

Adult males, like all other segments of our population, have their own special needs. Men in this modern age have departed from the basic aspects of supportive living. We have moved away from the land and manual labor to a frenetic lifestyle in cars and offices, eating on the run, working more with our minds than with our bodies. Most active, productive men need a good supplement program to protect them from illness and deficiency symptoms and increase their longevity by reducing chronic degenerative disease patterns.

Depression is a mental state characterized by extreme feelings of sadness, despair, hopelessness, and low self-esteem, often accompanied by physical symptoms such as loss of appetite and energy; the negative mood is out of proportion to any actual event or condition that may have precipitated it. Supplementation may help smooth the way through rocking times and anxiety.
Science has found that as we sleep we remain surprisingly biomolecularly active, restoring immune mechanisms and storing and "indexing" important information that we've acquired during the previous day. All the while the body is restoring some vital chemicals back into and using other ones Sleep disorders are prevalent in the general population and may be associated with significant medical, psychological, and social disturbances. Good sleep imparts a refreshing and stimulating attitude that physiologically and psychologically touches the core of youthfulness.

Vitamins are an important component of nutrition, and a large number of Americans suffer from dietary deficiencies. Multivitamins, multimineral, and multiantioxidant are a group of substances essential to normal metabolism, growth and development, and regulation of cell function; vitamins work together with enzymes, co-factors, and other substances. Proper nutrition is essential in treating common problems associated with the wear and tear of the natural aging process and in degenerative and immunity problems

These are supplements designed for energy boosting, body and mind. Sitting in front of the computer all day can be just as wearing as digging a ditch all day long. And yet, at the end of the day, when you feel totally wiped out, it has nothing to do with having exercised your muscles to exhaustion. It's a matter of how hard your brain worked. The human body contains at least 50,000 different kinds of proteins, each one serving a specific biological function. Among the different categories of proteins are enzymes, hormones, antibodies, transporters, and structural, supporting, and contractile proteins. They are the principal constituents of all cells and are involved in virtually every vital process. Enhance them by special formulations by Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw.

Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or a cavity, is an infection that progresses when bacteria produce an acid (as a byproduct of carbohydrate fermentation) that diffuses into the teeth and dissolves their mineral components, causing demineralization. Together with periodontal disease, dental caries comprises the bulk of major oral disease. Pathological factors such as disease-causing bacteria, salivary dysfunction, and dietary carbohydrates are related to caries progression. Fermentable carbohydrates, including sugars, are generally accepted to be the fundamental cause of caries. Just about everything in our oral hygiene mastic products are state-of-the-art for an efficient means to ward off the kinds of bacteria that have made the history of dentistry so excruciating.

Allergies are described as the altered or heightened response your immune system may display toward an otherwise harmless substance. Once you are sensitized to a particular substance, your immune system overreacts to it in future contacts. The symptoms and severity of allergies are extremely diverse, largely depending on the allergen and how it interacts with the antibodies the immune system releases against it causing inflammation or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, lungs, skin, digestive system, or other sensitive areas of the body. These distressing physical effects, stemming from hypersensitivity to a normally harmless substance, constitute an allergic reaction. We offer a possible natural solution through our products that address these hypersensitivities.

Vision & Hearing
One's perception is a mental impression of something perceived by the senses. Vision and hearing are two major senses that affect our perception. Besides the aging factor, these two major senses can be affected by nerve damage, decreased circulation resulting in decreased oxygen and nutrients, nerve and oxidation damage, as well as disease. One's visual and hearing health is an important and often overlooked part of most people's nutritional program. Yet it is critical to pursue it avidly, because of the extremely important role in our overall perception.
