(also known as winter cherry) is an adaptogenic herb has
been used in India for centuries to enhance the body's
resistive functions during high-stress situations.
In a large clinical trial, ashwagandha reduced
levels of the hormone cortisol by up to 26% while
maintaining already normal blood sugar levels and lipid
profiles. Subjects who took the standardized ashwagandha
extract reported improvements in energy, sleep and
wellbeing, as well as diminished fatigue. Additional
research suggests that ashwagandha confers
neuroprotection by supporting the regeneration of axons
and dendrites, nerve cell components that support brain
and nervous system function.
Some of the
findings of over 200 ashwagandha studies are summarized

adaptogen, schizandra is a potent general tonic,
decreasing fatigue, enhancing physical performance, and
promoting endurance. The berry counters stress by
reducing the levels of stress hormones in the blood.
Additionally, schizandra offers great benefits for
athletes. In human studies, schizandra berry and its
extracts have improved performance among long-distance
runners, skiers and gymnasts. For this reason,
schizandra berry is often found on the training tables
of Chinese athletes.
Schizandra also offers special
benefits for the mind. Several human studies show that
schizandra extract improves concentration, coordination
and endurance. Schizandra helps to prevent mental
fatigue and increases accuracy and quality of work. In
various human clinical studies with doctors, students,
soldiers and other groups, schizandra demonstrated
superior mind-sharpening powers.
As if all these
benefits were insufficient, schizandra also offers
first-rate liver-protective benefits. Schizandra helps
in the treatment of hepatitis, as noted in over 500
cases. In fact, an antihepatitis drug was developed from
Roseais, a remarkable herb that has a wide and varied
history of uses. It is thought to strengthen the nervous
system, fight depression, enhance immunity, elevate the
capacity for exercise, enhance memory, aid weight
reduction, increase sexual function and improve energy
levels. It has long been known as a potent adaptogen.
Rhodiola has a legendary history dating back
thousands of years. In 77 A.D., the Greek physician,
Dioscorides, documented the medical applications of the
plant, which he then called rodia riza in his classic
medical text De Materia Medica. The Vikings depended on
the herb to enhance their physical strength and
endurance, while Chinese emperors sent expeditions to
Siberia to bring back "the golden root" for medicinal
preparations. The people of central Asia considered a
tea brewed from Rhodiola rosea to be the most effective
treatment for cold and flu. Mongolian physicians
prescribed it for tuberculosis and cancer.
Research on Rhodiola rosea and other medicinal herbs was
part of the Soviet Union's great push to compete with
the West in military development, the arms race, space
exploration, Olympic sports, science, medicine, and
industry. It is a popular plant in traditional medical
systems in Eastern Europe and Asia, with a reputation
for stimulating the nervous system, decreasing
depression, enhancing work performance, eliminating
fatigue, and preventing high altitude sickness.
In just the past few years, ongoing research has
revealed even more diverse benefits of rhodiola. These
include protecting the nervous system against oxidative
stress, enhancing healthy sleep, lifting depressed mood,
relieving anxiety, and maintaining blood sugar within a
Recent research confirms that
rhodiola has potent antioxidant effects that protect
nervous system cells. A study at the Jiangsu Institute
of Nuclear Medicine in China showed that salidroside, an
active constituent found in rhodiola, protects human
neuron cells from oxidative stress in several ways,
including inducing several antioxidant enzymes. By
protecting cells of the nervous system against oxidative
stress-induced cell death, salidroside could be used
“for treating or preventing neurodegenerative disease
implicated with oxidative stress,” the scientists noted.
Ginseng (Asian Ginseng) is one of the most highly
regarded of herbal medicines in the Orient, where it has
gained an almost magical reputation for being able to
promote health, general body vigor, to prolong life and
treat many ailments including depression, diabetes,
fatigue, ageing, inflammations, internal degeneration,
nausea, tumors, pulmonary problems, dyspepsia, vomiting,
nervousness, stress, and ulcers.

other type of ginseng.
Basil (Ocimum sanctum) is a member of the mint, or
Labiatae, family. Also known as “Tulsi” or “The
Incomparable One,” holy basil is one of the most sacred
plants in India.
Holy basil is a powerful
antioxidant with demonstrated antibacterial, antifungal,
and anti-inflammatory properties. In Ayurvedic medicine,
holy basil has been used to treat a variety of
conditions - everything from the common cold to
bronchitis to fever to certain digestive complaints,
Although many of these
treatments are still unproven by conventional testing,
modern science is now taking a closer look at this
fascinating herb. In the past decade, a number of
scientific studies have focused on the effects of holy
basil. Some investigations have shown great promise,
suggesting holy basil may indeed prove effective in
those customary uses. But science has even looked beyond
the traditional scope, studying the herb for its
therapeutic potential in cancer, specifically as an
adjuvant to radiation therapy, and even for its
stabilizing effects in diabetes.
compelling data, however, suggests that holy basil
possesses its greatest potential in the areas of stress
relief and relaxation. Multiple scientific studies
examining this property of Holy Basil have found that
supplementation with various extracts of holy basil

Maral Root (Rhaponticum
known as maral root, Rhaponticum carthamoides is an
herbaceous perennial that grows between 4,500-6,000 feet
above sea level. The plant can be found growing wild in
Southern Siberia, Kazakhstan, the Altai region, and
Western Sayani. Rhaponticum is also cultivated
throughout Russia and Eastern Europe. Rhaponticum
derives its traditional name, maral root from the maral
deer who feed on it. As a traditional remedy,
Rhaponticum has been used to allay fatigue, treat
impotence, speed up recovery from illness, and improve
mood in cases of mild depression.
conducted in Russia and Eastern Europe indicates that
maral root may indeed exert a beneficial effect cases of
impotence, improve memory and learning, increase working
capacity of tired skeletal muscles, and possess anabolic
and adaptogenic properties.
carthamoides contains a number of antioxidant flavonoids
and natural sterols, including a substance called
20-Hydroxyecdysone, which has been shown to increase
protein production at the cellular level, and in turn
enhance the production of muscle tissue. Research
conducted in Russia shows that extracts of Rhaponticum
can significantly increase muscle mass, while decreasing
body fat in athletes who use it while exercising.
Research also shows that Rhaponticum extract can help to
increase work capacity and endurance, while reducing
mental and physical fatigue.
scientific studies performed on Rhaponticum have shown
this herb improves overall physical performance, and
shortens recovery time after an intense workout.
Observations of the influence of Rhaponticum on the
cardiovascular system have shown that its ability to
increase physical work capacity is partially due to its
ability to improve food supply to the muscles and brain.

abundance of environmental estrogens, most people's
hormones are a bit out of whack. Maca stimulates and
nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary glands which
are the "master glands" of the body. These glands
actually regulate the other glands, so when in balance
they can bring balance to the adrenal, thyroid,
pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands.
of providing hormones to the body, maca works as an
adaptogen which means that it responds to different
bodies' needs individually. If you're producing too much
of a particular hormone, maca will regulate the
production downward. However, if you're producing too
little, it'll regulate the production upward.
Hormones regulate many things including mood, growth,
sexual development, and tissue function. Hormones also
play a role in many diseases, like cancer and
Maca has been shown to be beneficial
for all sorts of hormonal problems including PMS,
menopause, and hot flashes. Maca is also a fertility
enhancer and is best known for improving libido and
sexual function, especially in men. For this reason,
it's earned the nickname "nature's Viagra."

detoxifier, because it is rich in chlorophyll. When
chlorella is taken into your body, it will bind to
lingering heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides found
in your digestive tract and move them swiftly out of the
body. A very unusual feature of chlorella is that while
it removes toxins it will not bind to or remove
beneficial minerals like calcium, magnesium, or zinc.
Think about that for a moment. Nature has provided us
with a single-celled organism that apparently knows
which metals belong in your body and which toxic
chemicals need to be removed. If chlorella were a

profits it would generate. Chlorella has been shown to
reduce body-fat percentage and blood-glucose levels and
help those suffering from Type 2 diabetes, obesity or
heart disease. Its other benefits include boosting
energy, aiding digestion and fighting depression.
Ionic Trace Minerals, the most bioavailable
form of needed trace minerals, provides 70 charged trace
minerals that are ready for absorption. Ionic minerals
are easily and quickly absorbed and taken into the cells

Copper is an essential trace mineral that is
present in all body tissues. Copper Gluconate is a
readily absorbable form of copper.
Copper is one
of the most important blood antioxidants and prevents
the rancidity of poly-unsaturated fatty acids. It also
helps keep cell membranes healthy and is active in the
storage and release of iron to form hemoglobin for red
blood cells. Copper is also considered part of a group
of energy nutrients. These also include B1, B2, B3, B5,
iron, and magnesium. These nutrients are needed by our
bodies to convert glucose within cells into energy. In
addition, copper gluconate is required for producing the
protective myelin sheath around the nerves. It may also
act as an immune system booster, and help keep nerves
and bones healthy.
Other potential benefits of
copper gluconate include: helping with high cholesterol,
osteoporosis, wound healing, benign prostatic
hyperplasia, cardiac arrhythmia, hypoglycaemia,
peripheral vascular disease, osteoarthritis, and
Taurine and Tyrosine
Taurine is a semi-essential amino acid that plays a
specialized role as an ion and pH buffer in the heart,
skeletal muscles and central nervous system. Commonly
found in a variety of meats, dairy products and eggs,
the amino acid Taurine can be obtained from the diet in
minimal amounts. Unfortunately, physical activity
depletes our Taurine reserves faster than most people
can produce it. As a result, vegetarians, athletes and
individuals lacking meat in their diets are at the
greatest risk for deficiency.
Tyrosine is an
amino acid that your body produces from phenylalanine
(another type of amino acid). Also found in a number of
foods (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy, eggs, nuts,
legumes, and oats).
Tyrosine is essential to your
body's production of melanin (a type of pigment) and
several key brain chemicals (including dopamine and
norepinephrine). Tyrosine also plays an important role
in the function of the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary
glands, which are involved in producing and regulating

"Vitamin A" is the blanket term for retinoids,
biologically-active compounds that occur naturally in
both plant and animal tissues.
Vitamin A does
much more than help you see in the dark. Vitamin A is
essential for normal growth, bone development, and
reproduction. It is used to help maintain healthy skin
and mucous membranes, like the ones that line the nose
and mouth. This helps protect against infections in the
respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts. It
stimulates the production and activity of white blood
cells, takes part in remodeling bone, helps maintain the
health of endothelial cells (those lining the body’s
interior surfaces), and regulates cell growth and
The vitamin A that comes from animal
sources is fat-soluble, and in the form of retinoic
acid, retinal and retinol. Because these retinoids are
very bioavailable and stored in our tissues, too much
animal-derived vitamin A can build up in the body and
The vitamin A in fruits and
vegetables is in the form of "provitamin A" -vitamin A

B Complex Vitamins:
All B vitamins help the body convert food
(carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is used to
produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B
complex vitamins, also help the body use fats and
protein. B complex vitamins are needed for healthy skin,
hair, eyes, and liver. They are also critical to the
proper functioning of the nervous system.
vitamins are water-soluble, meaning that the body does
not store them.
B1 (Thiamine): Vitamin B1’s
primary purposes are metabolizing carbohydrates,
facilitating the release of energy from food, and
assisting cardiac and nervous system functions. It’s
also been shown to strengthen the immune system, reduce
stress and neutralize free radicals.
(Riboflavin): Vitamin B2, riboflavin, packs a serious
punch in terms of its benefits. It plays an essential
role in energy production by helping us metabolize
proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, and in the formation
of red-blood cells and antibodies. In addition, it
ensures proper development of our reproductive organs,
tissues, eyes, nervous system, and mucous membranes;
regulates thyroid activity; strengthens our antibodies;
prevents acne; protects the digestive tract; and helps
treat nervous-system conditions such as Alzheimer’s,
multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy.
Vitamin B3, is especially helpful in improving
circulation and lowering LDL cholesterol while raising
levels of good (HDL) cholesterol. Niacin is necessary
for the formation of red blood cells, and helps maintain
healthy blood pressure and blood triglyceride levels. It
also supports the central nervous system, and high doses
have been known to regulate mood. Finally, it keeps the
stomach and intestinal tract working smoothly and, like
its brethren, assists our bodies in metabolizing carbs,
protein, and fat.
B5 (Pantothenic Acid): Vitamin
B5 is a master synthesizer; it facilitates the formation
of fats, proteins, amino acids, and antibiotics. Doctors
have touted its ability to keep the human heart ticking
steadily, and to sustain healthy blood pressure levels.
B5 also enhances our immune system and our physical
stamina, spurs DNA reproduction, and keeps the hormones
that cause stress and anxiety in check. But perhaps its
best-known function of all is its contribution to skin
health, particularly in warding off signs of early
B6 (Pyridoxine): The superstar of the B
complex, vitamin B6 supports more bodily functions than
any other vitamin. Acting as a coenzyme for a number of
systems, it’s what enables our bodies to metabolize
amino acids, most notably in the intestines. Without it,
serotonin, dopamine, and adrenaline, among other
chemicals, could not form. When taken in conjunction
with vitamins B9 and B12, it reduces levels of the amino
acid homocysteine, which contributes to heart disease
and stroke. It’s also used for the treatment of
sideroblast anemia and even PMS.
Vitamin B9 is
essential for human growth and development, encourages
normal nerve and proper brain functioning, and may help
reduce blood-levels of the amino acid homocysteine
(elevated homocysteine levels have been implicated in
increased risk of heart disease and stroke). Folic acid
or folate may also help protect against cancers of the
lung, colon, and cervix, and may help slow memory
decline associated with aging.
have an increased need for folic acid: it supports the
growth of the placenta and fetus, and helps to prevent
several types of birth defects, especially those of the
brain and spine. Pregnant women and women of
child-bearing age should take extra caution to get
enough folic acid
B12 (Cobalamin): Cobalamin is
an effective treatment for high levels of homocysteine,
the amino acid whose buildup can cause heart disease. It
helps red blood cells form and regenerate, and aids our
bodies in manufacturing DNA and RNA. It’s also reputed
to combat male infertility, pernicious anemia,
osteoarthritis, bursitis, and chronic fatigue syndrome,
among other conditions. And on the neurological front,
it’s been shown to fight sleep disorders, memory loss,
NOTE: Cyanocobalamin and
Methylcobalamin are two forms of Cobalamin available for
use in nutritional supplements. The most common form
used by manufacturers is the inexpensive synthetic
Cyanocobalamin, as it is far cheaper (20 times cheaper)
than the naturally occurring Methylcobalamin. We do NOT
use Cyanocobalamin due to the fact that as the name
implies, cyanocobalamin contains a cyanide molecule,
that the body needs to remove and then eliminate to
convert the cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin.
Methylcobalamin is the specific form of B12 needed for
nervous system health. Indications of a potential
deficiency of B12 in the nervous system might include
numbness, tingling, loss of feeling sensation, burning
sensations, muscle cramps, nerve pain and slowness of
reflexes. Because of methylcobalamin's importance in
nervous system health, it is also an important nutrient
for vision. In fact, continued visual work (like work on
a computer) often leads to a reduction in something
called 'visual accommodation'. Methylcobalamin can
significantly improve visual accommodation, while
cyanocobalamin appears to be ineffective.
