(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 below:
Confers immune system protection.
Combats the effects of stress.
Improves learning, memory, and reaction
Reduces anxiety and depression without
Stabilizes blood sugar.
Reduces brain cell degeneration.
Contains anti-malarial properties.
Offers anti-inflammatory benefits.
Some studies have also found that
ashwagandha inhibits the growth of cancer
cells in small animals, but further research
is needed to determine whether the herb
prevents the development of tumors in human
beings. The key to its effectiveness lies in
constituents known as withanolides, which
help normalize a wide range of biochemical
(also spelt as schizandra) has been used in
Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,000
As an 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
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
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 Schisandrin C.
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
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 healthy range.
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,
Asian Ginseng is one of the most highly

diabetes, fatigue, ageing, inflammations,
internal degeneration, nausea, tumors,
pulmonary problems, dyspepsia, vomiting,
nervousness, stress, and ulcers..
Ginseng has been used to both stimulate and
relax the nervous system. It increases
capillary circulation in the brain and
decreases the effects of stress. Though
there are many kinds of ginsengs in the
world but they cannot rival Asian Ginseng in
ingredients and medicinal effects. It
contains as many as 29 different
ginsenosides while the others contains 8-9..
Asian Ginseng contains anti-aging substances
such as anti-oxidants and insulin-like
substances, which are not found in any 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
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, including
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.
The most 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 decrease stress
hormone levels, corticosterone in
Maral Root (Rhaponticum Carthamoides)
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
Modern research 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
Rhaponticum 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.
Additional 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
is the powdered root of the Lepidium Meyenii plant and
is an adaptogenic famous for longevity, endurance, and
fertility. Known for its ability to support healthy
energy levels, maca has been used by the Incas as a kind
of "Incan superfood" for thousands of years.
Maca root helps balance our hormones and due
to an over 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.
Instead 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
Hormones regulate many things including
mood, growth, sexual development, and tissue function.
Hormones also play a role in many diseases, like cancer
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."
Mushrooms. Long a symbol of longevity in Asia because of
their health-promoting properties, shiitake mushrooms
have been used medicinally by the Chinese for more than
Although immune system support has often
received much of the spotlight in shiitake mushroom
research, recent study results involving support of the
cardiovascular system have caught the attention of many
researchers. In particular, recent studies have shown
the ability of shiitake mushrooms to help protect us
against cardiovascular diseases (including
atherosclerosis) by preventing too much immune cell
binding to the lining of our blood vessels.
Studies in animals have found antitumor,
cholesterol-lowering, and virus-inhibiting effects in
compounds in shiitake mushrooms.
Several potential cancer-fighting substances
have been found in shiitake mushrooms, and purified
forms of these compounds are being studied as treatment
for stomach and colorectal cancer.
A compound found in shiitake mushrooms,
called lentinan is believed to stop or slow tumor
growth. Another component, an activated
hexose-containing compound (also known as 1,3-beta
glucan), is also said to reduce tumor activity and
lessen the side effects of cancer treatment. The
mushrooms also contain the compound eritadenine, which
is thought to lower cholesterol by blocking the way
cholesterol is absorbed into the bloodstream.
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the root
of Curcuma longa, a beautiful flowering
tropical plant native to India.
Within the cornucopia of medicinal plants,
few possess such a wide spectrum of
qualities and medicinal uses as turmeric.
For countless centuries, many different
cultures have used this wonderful, versatile
herb to treat a myriad of diseases and
The most well known medicinal action of
turmeric is its use as a powerful

The good news: Chlorella is an astounding package of
complete nutrition, which is probably why it is often
referred to as nature's multivitamin.
Chlorella... The bad news: Unprocessed
chlorella is useless as it is completely indigestible by
humans, due to the fact that we simply do not have the
enzymes to break down its outer cell wall. This form of
chlorella simply passes through the body without any
Chlorella... The GREAT news: There is a
manufacturing processes that produces a form of
chlorella known as 'Broken Cell Wall chlorella'. This
process makes the chlorella biologically available to
Naturally, we only use 'Broken Cell Wall
Chlorella is a potent 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 pharmaceutical drug, imagine how
many billions in 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
Ionic Trace Minerals
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
that line the intestinal tract. These minerals may be
readily employed in the body’s many physiologic
activities, including nutrient transport, enzyme
reactions, metabolism help and immune system support.
Ionic minerals also play an important role in supporting
a healthy pH balance.
Trimethylglycine (TMG) is also called
glycine betaine. TMG is a vitamin-like substance and is
a methyl donor, chemically speaking, although it also
has other beneficial effects.
While plenty of TMG is made in a healthy
body, many people do not make enough TMG today. The
reason appears to be the presence of certain toxic
metals. In addition, stress, infections, inflammation
and other disease conditions may use up what the body
makes, so more is needed.
Health benefits of TMG include, prevention
of Cardiovascular Disease, improves Athletic Performance
by improving the body's Energy levels, increasing
Stamina and improving the body's utilization of Oxygen.
Increases the body's Energy levels and assists the
Liver's efficiency in metabolizing Fatty Acids. TMG
detoxifies and stimulates the Liver.
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 rheumatoid arthritis.
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
NOTE: We use these two amino acids in our
formula as our own product testing has shown that in the
quantities we use, they increase the effectiveness of
our adaptogenic ingredients
"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 division.
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 precursors also
known as carotenoids.
NOTE: We do NOT use animal sourced Vitamin
A, instead we use plant sourced Beta Carotene.
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.
All B 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
B2 (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
B3 (Niacin): 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.
Pregnant women 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, and depression.
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.

We do not use Ascorbic Acid as our source of
vitamin c as it leaves many people with an
upset stomach. Instead we use the more
expensive "Buffered" vitamin C sourced from
Calcium ascorbate and Magnesium ascorbate.
There's overwhelming evidence that vitamin D is a key
player in your overall health. This is understandable
when you consider that it is not "just" a vitamin; it's
actually a neuroregulatory steroidal hormone that
influences nearly 3,000 different genes in your body.
Receptors that respond to the vitamin have been found in
almost every type of human cell, from your brain to your
Did you know there are two types of vitamin
D, and they are NOT interchangeable?
Drisdol is a synthetic form of vitamin D2,
which is made by irradiating fungus and plant matter.
The natural form is D3, which is found in
foods and also the type produced by your body in
response to exposure to sunlight.
NOTE: We do NOT use D2.
