Activin process Grape Seed Extract Grape seed extract is one of the so-called "super antioxidants."  Activin process is one where the grape seed is extracted using non-toxic chemicals.  A number of manufacturers use this patented process.  Natrol makes one that is commonly available.  It contains 50mg of grape seed extract per capsule. Vitacost makes a 200mg product that is a better value. One of the actions of grape seed extract is preserving vitamins E and C in the body, so it makes sense to first ensure the adequate consumption of these, then worry about additional antioxidants such as grape seed or turmeric (curcumin) extract.
1 capsule provides
Grape Seed Extract (ActiVin®)(standardized to 80% phenolic and 75% oligomer polyphenol)(seed) 200 mg

This product is no longer available! Description is still provided for archival purposes. See Source Naturals Proline Lysine for a similar product.

Alacer Pro-Lysine Ascorbs - Good formula for providing the proline and lysine along with vitamin C that Rath and the Pauling Institute claim control and may reverse artherosclerosis and arterial plaque (see Vitamin C section).  Rather expensive (but not nearly as much as Rath's proline lysine vitamin C product) unless purchased at a good discount, there are other proline/lysine combinations that can be taken with sufficient vitamin C to provide the same benefit, although this one is convenient. See the Vitamin C section for more details.
Formula: Each tablet provides:
Vitamin C (as calcium magnesium ascorbate)...500mg...833% 
L-Proline Amino Acid...250mg 
L-Lysine Amino Acid...250mg

Alta Magnesium Chloride is one of the only pure magnesium chloride oral tableted supplements available. Magnesium chloride may be one of the better forms of magnesium to stimulate immune function and to increase availablility when there is a problem with absorption.. Each of the medium tablets is about 518mg magnesium chloride supplying 62mg of elemental magnesium. See the Mineral Section for more information.

Cardiovascular Research Ecological Formulas Reagent Quality Tri Salts Mineral Bicarbonates - Tri-Salts are carbonates and bicarbonates of calcium, magnesium, and potassium.  Powder form only, but cheap at around $8 per 200g.  Best supplement for immediately reducing digestive tract acidity (address the cause, though, don't keep using alkaline agents for it long term).  Can help to maintain an alkaline enviroment in the body if needed.  Can be mixed with ascorbic acid in water to make mineral ascorbates.  Some people say this is one of the best supplements to reduce allergy problems, food and hay fever types, too. See the Mineral Section for more information.
Formula:  1/2 tsp provides:
450mg calcium
250mg magnesium
99mg potassium

Carlson's Cod Liver OilCarlson's is the most popular brand or fish oil products and their line includes a number of products including Omega 3 and 6 oils as well as Cod Liver Oil. Cod liver oil is similar to EPA fish oil in that it does supply EPA and DHA omega 3 oils, but it does not contain as much as the average EPA fish oil, which is typically salmon, mackerel, or other EPA-rich fish. Unlike these oils, cod liver oil does contain vitamins A and D. Carlson's cod liver oil limits the amount of vitamins A and D in their product so even taking it at the full serving size of 5 gelcaps per day, it does not provide too much. Even though it is in gelcap form, it is still lemon flavored to help prevent fishy burps. Carlson's also produces cod liver oil in liquid form which may be a slightly better deal, but most people prefer using gelcaps, even when it the liquid is flavored. See the EFA Supplement Section for more information.
5 softgels provide:
750IU vitamin A (15% RDA)
400IU vitamin D (100%)
10IU vitamin E (33%)
1150mg total omega-3 fatty acids including
425mg EPA
500mg DHA

Carlson's Fish Oil - Lemon flavored fish oil EPA/DHA supplement.   Mild taste and can be used in salad dressing.  Recommended by Dr. Mercola as the best liquid EPA supplement. Many people don't mind the taste too much since it is lemon flavored, but the fishiness is still apparent. For those who don't like the taste of fish, gelcaps such as Enzymatic Therapy Eskimo-3 or Vitacost Mega EFA are a better choice. See the EFA Supplement Section for more information.
Formula: 1 tsp provides :
1300mg EPA/DHA and 14 mg antioxidant blend.

Controlled Labs Blue Up (formerly known as Blue Rhino) is described as a high potency natural testosterone booster. Since it does contain some yohimbe and caffeine, it should not be used by those with prostate or hypertension problems. Testosterone boosters are often used by body builders looking for a way to increase the effectiveness of workouts, but also by non body builders to boost free testosterone levels to provide benefits in circulation problems, libido, and other conditions that can be affected by low hormone levels.
2 capsules provide:
Blue Up Complex: 1100mg :
Tribulus Terrestris (Extracted for 80% Steroidal Saponins and 30% Protodioscin),

Blue Stim Complex: 255mg :
Natural Caffeine, Pausinytalia Yohimbe Bark Extract (6.5 mg Yohimbine)

Controlled Labs Green Bulgeis mostly meant as a body building supplement, although can provide benefits to those who do not aspire to this goal. Controlled Labs does a lot of research and testing on the bioavailability of their products and Green Bulge is no exception. It contains the best absorbed and useable forms of creatine of any supplement. Creatine is used to increase strength and stamina, and this action can be used by those who are debilitated or who have a problem with insufficient ATP processes.
Amount per 5 Capsules
HyperCre Complex: 3450mg
Magnesium creatine chelate, creatine ethyl ester hcl, betaine anhydrous, taurine ethyl ester di-HCI, arginine ethyl ester di-hci, glycocyamine, k-rala, 4-hydroxyisoleucine (20%)

Controlled Labs Red Acid, now known as REDuction, is mostly meant as a body building supplement, although can provide benefits to those who do not aspire to this goal as well. Controlled Labs does a lot of research and testing on the bioavailability of their products and Red Acid is no exception. It contains fatty acids and fatty acid analogues that help burn fat, reduce fat deposits in the body, and control appetite. It is an excellent product for weight loss, especially when combined with physical exercise.
Serving Size: 3 Capsules contains

Controlled Labs White Blood contains arginine and ornithine ethyl esters, which are compounds of these supplements which are particularly well absorbed and utilized by the body. Arginine and ornithine are used for HGH release regimens as well as to boost nitric oxides in the blood (the principal action of Viagra, but White Blood does it without potentially harmful side effects). While the usual recommended dosage of plain arginine or ornithine to achieve these goals can be very high (as much as 10g at a time), White Blood performs the same function with as little as 3 capsules. White Blood is highly recommended since in addition to the amino acid ethyl esters it also contains antioxidants to decrease the potential of increased oxidation from the increased nitric oxide levels in the blood.
Serving Size: 3 Capsules contains
eNO + Anti-Oxide Complex: 2000mg
Arginine Ethyl Ester Di-HCL, Ornithine Ethyl Ester Di-HCL, L-Taurine (Free Form), K-R-ALA, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), Lutein, Folic Acid, Selenium, Zeaxanthin, Cryptoxanthin, Alpha-Carotene)

Dr. Christopher's Sinus Plus Formula contains Brigham Tea, Marshmallow Root, Golden Seal Root, Chaparral, Burdock Root, Parsley Root, Lobelia, and Cayenne. It is a powerful sinus formula that provides both fast acting herbs to quickly combat the problem as well as deep acting cleansing and antiseptic actions. Not as fast acting as the horseradish mixture in Planetary Formula's Sinus Free, but it works on a deeper level. See the Allergy Regimen for more information.

Eclectic Institute Intestinal Support - formerly known as Eclectic Institute Black Walnut Wormwood capsules.  Excellent antiparasitic but hard to find at a good discount. Contains concentrates of black walnut, clove, and wormwood with both annua and absynthium types. Does not stimulate elimination directly as do many antiparasitic combinations. Wormwood annua makes it more effective for blood borne parasites like spirochetes. This is Electroherbalism's top rated antiparasitic since it contains wormwood annua in addition to wormwood absynthium to make it more effective and the concentrates are produced in a safe manner without toxic solvents. Note that the new formula Intestinal Support is not as potent as the old Black Walnut Wormwood and can be used at up to double recommended serving size to match it. See the Antiparasitic Regimen for more information.
Formula:
Each 350 mg capsule contains:
Concentrate of Black Walnut (juglans nigra) outer hull, equivalent to 400 mg of dry outer hull.
Concentrate of organically grown Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) flower & leaf, equivalent to 500 mg of dry flower & leaf.
Concentrate of Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) flower, equivalent to 150 mg of dry flower.
Organically grown Chinese Wormwood (Artemisia annua) leaf, equivalent to 700 mg of fresh leaf.
NOTE: The Intestinal Support formula which replaced Black Walnut Wormwood capsules is slightly lower in potency so more capsules are required to achieve the same results.
Electroherbalism's Paranon has a similar formula to this Eclectic product but is only available in liquid extract form.

Enzymatic Therapy Air Power - Contains guaifenesin, a plant-based expectorant used in many conventional cough syrups, in a base of mostly fenugreek and marshmallow root. Advertised to remove excess mucus from the respiratory airways due to bronchial irritations and it is excellent for this, especially when combined with an antiseptic program, and may be helpful against asthma, but the usual reason Electroherbalism recommends it is to combat snoring. See the Snoring Regimen for more information.
Formula:  Each Tablet Contains: 
Active Ingredients: 
Guaifenesin (Glycerol Guaiacolate) 200mg 
Other Ingredients: 
Fenugreek seed powder (4:1) (Trigonella foenum-graecum) 350mg

Enzymatic Therapy AS-Comp - Although made for asthma and allergies, this formula was good for its low dose (12mg) ephedrine content and respiratory support nutrients and herbs for sinus and other congestion problems. Ephedrine is one of the best decongestants but it is a potentially harmful supplement, and most products contain between 30 and 60mg per serving, so this is a way to get some of the benefits with less side effects.  This product was discontinued as of 2002 and this information is provided for historical purposes. Enzymatic Therapy SinuCheck (see below) has similar action, but contains 30mg of ephedrine per servimg. 
Formula. 1 capule provides
Active Ingredient:

Enzymatic Therapy Bromelain Plus - Bromelain is pineapple enzyme, which is an excellent antiinflammatory and digests protein, so typically good for muscle and joint problems like arthritis, gout, and other disorders where inflammation and undigested proteins are a problem, as well as some digestive disorders.  More information on Bromelain in the Favorite Herbs section.  Enzymatic Therapy adds some pantothenic acid and vitamin C to increase its effects, especially against muscle and joint problems.  Advertised by them as "Enzymes to relieve muscle pain following exercise".  It is sold in capsules and one of the only bromelain products I have found which is not sprayed with isopropyl alcohol after manufacture.
Formula: 2 capsules provide 
Vitamin C (as calcium ascorbate) 225mg,
Pantothenic Acid (as calcium D-pantothenate) 125 mg
Bromelain (1,800 M.C.U./g) 750 mg

Enzymatic Therapy Cell Forte with IP-6 - Inositol hexaphosphate and plain inositol in a 4:1 ratio is a patented formula.  Dose for active cancer is 8 capsules twice per day on an empty stomach. Powdered form, available in cannisters, is usually more expensive than using capsules unless it's on sale.  A premier cancer-fighting supplement, it is advertised to boost natural killer (NK) cell production but the main action in fighting cancer may be that it matures cancer cells so they are not embryonic and rapidly dividing and may cause cancerous tissue to revert to normal in some cases. Binds iron so can be useful in fighting some fungi, viral, and bacterial infections. Provides some cleansing of the liver and kidneys. Probably helps prevent kidney and gallstones. Can be made for oneself with pure powdered IP-6 and inositol, available from a number of manufacturers, mixed in the proper ratio. See the Cancer Regimen for more information.
Formula:  2 capsules provide:
Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP-6 brand ) 800mg
Inositol 220mg

Pantothenic Acid (as calcium D-pantothenate) 25mg 250 %

Pancreatic Enzymes (10X) 50mg
L-Cysteine HCl 25 mg 

Enzymatic Therapy DGL- DGL is a chewable extract of deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) and the amino acid glycine. Glycyrrhizin can cause potassium depletion when used long term which is why licorice is typically deglycyrrhizinated when in supplement form. All good DGLs are in chewable form since DGL requires salvia to activate it into body ready form. DGL supplements typically come in both sweetened and unsweetened types, although most prefer unsweetened since DGL is already rather sweet. DGL stimulates the natural protective factors in the digestive tract, which often helps relieve stomach discomfort quickly.

Enzymatic Therapy Doctor's Choice for Glucose Regulation (formerly and once again known as Doctor's Choice for Diabetics) - Highly recommended long term supplement to provide nutrients necessary to fight diabetes and prevent some side effects of the disorder.

Enzymatic Therapy Doctor's Choice Eye Formula - Best eye supplement for macular degeneration, cataracts, and other degenerative conditions.  Only widely available product which contains hachimijiogan, an herb blend used to treat cataracts.  Now Eye Support has much of the same action and is quite a bit cheaper, but probably not quite as effective for cataracts.See the Macular Degeneration Regimen for more information.

Enzymatic Therapy Doctor's Choice for Joint Health - One of the best arthritis supplements with 500mg of ET's stabilized glucosamine sulfate per dose, which many people who use GS on a regular basis say is the only GS worth the money.

Enzymatic Therapy Eskimo-3 - Molecularly distilled omega 3 EPA/DHA fish oil supplement comes in small gelcaps, unlike the uncomfortably large gelcaps most companies produce.  3 gelcaps provide: Omega3 Fatty Acids 600 mg: provides 260 mg EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 165 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) . Eskimo-3 (also known as Prevail Eskimo-3) was one of the first widely available omega 3 fish oil supplements that was molecularly distilled at a reasonable cost. Today, any good EPA supplement is molecularly distilled or otherwise screened for toxic metals. See the EFA Supplement Section for more information.

Enzymatic Therapy Krebs Cycle Chelates - The ET Krebs series are small mineral supplement tablets available in many combinations including ones with calcium magnesium. Enzymatic Therapy's bio-active minerals are chelated to the Krebs cycle intermediates (citrate, fumarate, malate, succinate and alpha ketoglutarate). These organic acids are responsible for energy production within every cell of the body. Minerals chelated to the Krebs cycle are better absorbed and utilized.

Enzymatic Therapy SinuCheck - Very effective for sinus and other mucus congestion.  Contains pseudoephedrine (30mg) so should not be taken long term but with the additional herbs, less is needed than with most ephedrine supplements so excellent for short term use as needed.  NOTE: This low-dose ephedrine supplement was another casualty of the temporary FDA ban on natural ephedra products (but for some reason, not the high dose ephedrine products sold by drugstores and supermarkets like Sudofed) which lasted just long enough to drive off the more effective natural sinus and allergy ephedra products.
Formula.  One tablet provides:
Active Ingredients: 
Pseudoephedrine HCl 30mg 
Other Ingredients: 
Skullcap Extract (4:1) (Scutellaria baicalensis) 100mg

Enzymatic Therapy Immune Strong Wellness Booster (formerly Enzymatic Therapy Thymulus) - Thymus supplement used primarily for immune stimulation, often part of a hepatitis regimen. Thymulus is sometimes combined with Enzymatic Therapy ThymuPlex to provide increased amounts of thymus fractions since ThymuPlex has too much zinc (which can cause stomach upset when taken in large amounts) to be used in therapeutic amounts by some people. The astragalus root contained in Thymulus provides deep immunity stimulation but is also calming to the stomach. See the Hepatitis Regimen for more information.
Formula:  Two softgels provide:
Thymus Polypeptide Fractions 750mg 
Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) root 250mg extract standardized to contain 0.5% minimum of the isoflavone 4' hydroxy 3' methoxy isoflavone 7SUG (GHMIF)

FutureBiotics Silymarin Plus contains a large amount of silymarin plus inositol, choline, beet, dandelion, alfalfa, black radish, etc. One of the only products which contains black radish and beet root powder together. 3 tablets per day serving size can be doubled if needed. Probably the single best supplement to remove both solvents in the liver as well as mineral deposits like gallstones. Using this for two weeks while drinking unfiltered apple juice and a tablespoon of olive oil before bed is likely as effective, and possibly more so, as a Hulda Clark liver flush. It is the top rated liver cleanser by Electroherbalism.

Gaia Herbs Extra Strength Echinacea Supreme is one of the most powerful full spectrum echinacea extracts available, although like many liquid extracts, not rated for potency. Good quality echinacea can be told be how much it numbs the tongue. Gaia's Extra Strength Echinacea Supreme numbs the tongue more so than any other commonly available echinacea extract to the point of it being uncomfortable. Use small amounts of mix with water until one is acclimated to this sensation. There is also a regular (non extra strength) formula. Gaia Herbs Extra Strength Echinacea Supreme is Electroherbalism's most highly recommended echinacea extract. See the Antiviral Regimen for more information.
Grain Alcohol Content: 45-55%
Ingredients: Echinacea Angustifolia Root, fresh, undried Echinacea Purpurea Root, Flower Head, Seed, Pure Grain Alcohol, Spring Water
Take 20 drops of extract in a small amount of warm water 2 times daily between meals.

Gaia Herbs Olive Leaf extract - Olive leaf extract is a premier antiseptic, effective against many bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi.  Gaia's product is standardized for 10% oleuropeins, which is less than the 18% or more that many products offer, but it is extracted using water instead of toxic solvents so preferable for long term use. See the Antifungal General, Antibacterial General, and Antiviral General regimens for more information.
Formula: 1 capsule provides:
250 mg/cap standardized extract of Olive Leaf, 10% oleuropeins

Gaia Herbs Scudder's Alterative - The description provided by Gaia is "This excellent alterative compound was originally prepared according to Prof. Scudder's formula (an eclectic medical formula). It acts, as all alteratives do, to replace catabolic tissue with healthy, more vibrant tissue. This is an alterative second to none, working to bring about a repair to the vital force through the removal of obstructing waste material. Specifically indicated in liver and glandular afflictions, skin disorders, lymphatic and blood disorders, tumors, cysts, boils, carbuncles, cancers, endometriosis, and conditions where there is waste build-up and deranged tissue."  Use it with The Water Cure and in amounts no more than directed. See the Endometriosis Regimen for more information.
Formula: Corydalis tubers, Black alder bark, Mayapple root, Figwort flowering herb, Yellow dock Grain alcohol content: 35-40%

Garden of Life Living Multi Optimal Formula - Was once one of Electroherbalism's most highly rated multivitamins but since Garden of Life is now prohibiting their resellers from selling at good discounts, the high cost makes it lower rated for the money. Most Vitacost Synergy Multivitamins are much higher in potency and a much better value. Garden of Life Multi is mostly composed of "super green foods" bound to vitamins and minerals.  Appears to be low potency, but due to the very high absorption rate, actually better than many supposedly high-potency products.  Since everything is bound to protein or otherwise in a food matrix, it can be taken on an empty stomach.  Although it appears expensive, especially considering the large daily serving size of 9 caplets, the amount of useful green food and herb extracts can save a lot of money over supplementing them separately.  See the Multivitamin Section for more information.
Living Multi Optimal Formula contains 70 whole foods, including 23 fruits, 20 vegetables, 11 tonic mushrooms, 9 ocean vegetables and 6 botanicals. This is equivalent to 203,150 mg of fresh Superfoods. 100% Vegetarian.  9 tablets provide:

George's Aloe Juice is the purest aloe product available. It is fractionally distilled to remove the laxative and bitter compounds and tastes almost like water. A rich source of polysaccharides, aloe is often used to stimulate immune function and fight chronic illness in addition to its traditional use as a topical to treat burns and skin irritation. Excellent product to use for digestive illnesses such as Crohn's and IBS to control symptoms, but it is best to also use antiseptics to fight bacteria directly for these purposes. Many people use aloe juice to fight GERD and other acidic digestion problems, and it is helpful for this but only when taken in large amounts. See the IBS and Crohn's Regimen for more information.
Ingredients: 100% Aloe Vera (fractionally distilled from Aloe Vera leaves)

Health From The Sun Flax Oil Lignan Gold is one of the best flax oils products (Barlean's is as highly regarded). Both contain a large amount of lignans which are thought to be some of the helpful components in flax oils. Flax oil is a source of omega 3 oils, but unlike EPA fish oil must first be converted by the body to a useable form. Excess amounts of flax oil (3 TBS or more) can actually be harmful if there is not enough protein or other nutrients in the diet, but using 1 or 2 tablespoons per day is usually fine.
Ingredients: 100% Certified Organic Flax seed oil and particulate with rosemary extract, mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E), ascorbyl palmitate (Vitamin C) and citric acid to protect freshness.See the EFA Supplement Section for more information.

The actual text for this product states that it has 1250mg of pancreatin, but this listing displays the real value of 125mg of 10x pancreatin to make comparisons of other products in this section, like Enzymatic Therapy Mega-Zyme, valid.
Note that there is another product out there also called "Megazyme Forte" that has a different formula and is not rated for trypsin or chymotrypsin.

Herb Pharm Super Echinacea Root is not quite as potent as Gaia Extra Strength Echinacea Supreme, but not as expensive.

See the Antiviral Regimen for more information.
Ingredients: Organic grain alcohol (48-52%), distilled water & Echinacea Root extractives.

Heritage Products Cold Pressed Castor Oil
Castor Oil is a powerful laxative and used as an emollient to soothe the skin and keep it moist. Pure, cold pressed, top quality oil. Good for use as a skin softener, although very thick. Edgar Cayce recommended castor oil packs over the liver to benefit the liver and digestive system and castor oil liver packs have become one his more enduring legacies with many people soaking flannel cloth with castor oil, placing over the liver area, and covering with a heating pad to increase penetration. Healers from many ancient cultures have used castor oil for over 3000 years. See the Castor Oil article for more information.
Ingredients for Castor Oil Cold Pressed
Ultra Pure, Cold Pressed Castor Oil.
Suggested Use for Castor Oil Cold Pressed
To prepare a pack, saturate flannel and place over abdomen or other areas. Cover with plastic, and apply heat to increase penetration. Other uses; Massage into any area where softening and soothing are desired.

Jarrow Formulas Omega Balance (now known as EPA-DHA Balance). The original formula called Omega Balance was the only widely available reasonably priced EFA supplement with a decent ratio of DHA/EPA to GLA (11:1).  Still less than the ideal 20:1 to 40:1 ratio, but a lot better than the usual omega GLA EPA supplements which are in the range of 1:1 to 2:1, including way too much GLA compared to EPA for long term use. However, Jarrow has stopped production on this excellent product and the replacement is called EPA-DHA Balance,. It no longer contans GLA and CLA, only EPA/DHA (400/200mg). It is an excellent supplement for the money but it is too bad the old formula is not also made. It's formula is given below for informational purposes.

Natural Factors Turmeric and Bromelain - Excellent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with liver cleansing properites.  Recommended for many painful conditions especially of the joints and muscles. Helps digest protein, too. Can be taken up to double recommended for pain and inflammation. Good value for the money.

Naturally Vitamins Wobenzym - Wobenzym is one of the most popular enzyme products in the world. Note that it is now manufactured by Mucos Pharma instead of Naturally Vitamins. Wobenzym is typically taken in large amounts by those with chronic and serious illnesses like cancer, but also for other inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, injuries, and circulation disorder. This may be why the most popular size of Wobenzyme is 800 tablet bottles. While Wobenzym is a good product, some think Enzymatic Therapy Mega-Zyme may be better. Mega-Zyme is in general less expensive, more powerful, and does not have a foul odor. Wobenzym comes in the original red color which is most popular in Europe and especially Germany where the product was formulated, and with clear coating, which was made for the US market who did not want the yellow-orange dye the red ones use. Note that Vitacost sells an identical product called Vitacost FlavenZym which is mroe economical than Wobenzym.

North American Herb and Spice Co. Oreganol Oregano Oil. - Oregano oil is one of the most useful supplements with the widest spectrum to fight bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites, and is also antiinflammatory. North American's oregano oil is widely available at health food stores. The standard product is diluted with olive oil to make it less caustic and can be taken a drop or two on the tongue at a time, or larger amounts mixed in water or juice. The Super Strengh Oreganol is more potent than the regular, and comes in a 1 oz size instead of the 0.45 oz size of the regular Oreganol.

See the Antifungal General, Antibacterial General, and Antiviral General regimens for more information.

Now Curcumin is one of the least expensive turmeric extract supplements. Curcumin is one of the best single antioxidants and provides a number of other benefits including controlling inflammation on a par with prescription anti-inflammatories, including controlling COX-2 inflammatory enzymes, plus it has the side benefit of improving liver function instead of destroying it like many prescription drugs do. Also helps balance intestinal flora. Like other super antioxidants, one of the actions of curcumin is preserving vitamin C and E in the body, so it is a good idea to first ensure that adequate amounts of these are used before using additional antioxidants. Now Curcumin is Electroherbalism's top rated Super Antioxidant.

Now Diet Support - Thermogenic diet formula has no ephedra as do most thermogenic formulas in the past, so is safer.  Only two capsules per day dose, but should be taken in divided doses.  Does have a bit of caffeine from the green tea extract, but not so much that it causes sleeplessness in most, and not nearly as much as most thermogenic diet formulas which add a large amount of guarana standardized for high caffeine along with the ephedra.  It was designed by Dr. Balch and contains many of the best herbs and nutrients he recommends for weight loss in Prescription for Nutritional Healing. See the Weight Loss Regimen for more information.

Now Olive Leaf Extract  - Olive leaf extract is a premier antiseptic, effective against many bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi.  Now's product contains 400mg of 18% oleuropein for the best price.  For long term use in serious diseases, though, it is probably best to use Gaia Herbs Olive Leaf extract (gelcaps) or Herb Pharm Olive Leaf Extract (liquid extract) since they are extracted with a water or alcohol method. See the Antifungal General, Antibacterial General, and Antiviral General regimens for more information.
Note that Now makes another olive leaf extract and it has the same name, Now Olive Leaf Extract but has 500mg of 6% potency olive leaf extract and no echinacea. It is quite confusing and odd that Now would do this. They should call the product to the left Now Triple Strength Olive Leaf Extract to differentiate it from the 6% product.
Formula:  1 capsule of "Now Triple Strength Olive Leaf Extract" provides: 
400mg olive leaf extract standardized for 18% oleuropein
Echinacea Angustifolia extract 100mg, 4% echinoside.

Now Silymarin 2x - Excellent value for double strength silymarin combined with dandelion root and artichoke extract. Now also makes a 1x Silymarin extract called Now Silymarin which contains silymarin in a base of turmeric powder and is also an excellent silymarin combination when taken in small amounts (up to double recommended) since too much turmeric powder can causing a burning sensation. Now Silymarin 2x contains no "hot" herbs in it though so can be taken in large amounts if necessary. Besides cleaning the liver of all manner of toxins, silymarin protects it, too. One of the first clinical studies on its properties was conducted on rats where half were fed silymarin then all of them were fed deathcap mushrooms. All the ones who had silymarin lived while all the ones without it died. Even so, it is not recommended to test silymarin's protective effects by eating poisons which are toxic to the liver!  See the Liver Cleanse Regimen for more information.

Vitacost Activin Grape Seed Extract Grape seed extract is one of the so-called "super antioxidants."  Activin process is one where the grape seed is extracted using non-toxic chemicals.  A number of manufacturers use this patented process.  Natrol makes one that is commonly available but only contains 50mg of grape seed extract per capsule. NS is a 200mg product that is a better value. One of the actions of grape seed extract is preserving vitamins E and C in the body, so it makes sense to first ensure the adequate consumption of these, then worry about additional antioxidants such as grape seed or turmeric (curcumin) extract.

Vitacost ArthriPower Ultra is a multivitamin that contains a great deal of the premier arthritis nutrients glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin plus provide a lot of anti-inflammatory action with curcumin, enzymes, and microlactin. Oddly, it contains little calcium and magnesium which are used to rebuild joints, so these should be supplemented separately, but otherwise this is an excellent multivitamin to fight arthritis.  See the Arthritis Regimen for more information.

Vitacost Bromelain capsules - One of the strongest bromelain capsule products for the money, each capsule contains 500mg of 2400GDU (gelatin digesting units) bromelain per gram - note that as of 12/2008 the Vitacost website has not been updated to reflect that the potency has been boosted from 2000 to 2400GDU.  Using bromelain products in capsules instead of tablets is usually important since bromelain tablets are often sprayed with isopropyl alcohol before packaging. Bromelain, an enzyme derived from pineapple, is often used to fight inflammation and pain and since it is non-acidic, can be used in serving sizes as large as necessary. It is also often used to prevent clotting and thin the blood. Now Bromelain (see above) is also a high potency bromelain product and like Vitacost Bromelain, an excellent value. Compare prices to see which is less expensive if using this product on a regular basis.

Vitacost Calcium Citrate is one of the few chewable mineral supplements that contains adequate amounts of magnesium as well as vitamin D. Calcium citrate is a highly recommended form of calcium for increased absorption and utilization. Depending on when the product was manufactured (and probably the humidity levels that day) this product can be crumbly and gritty tasting, or smooth and pleasant. See the Mineral Section for more information.

Vitacost Colon Cleanse is a wide spectrum cleanser that contains mostly cascara sagrada, one of the best cleansing laxatives, along with supporting herbs to provide other benefits. Fennel seed and ginger are the second and third ingredients to prevent stomach upset and cramping as can happen with other laxatives, and the addition of other cleansing herbs makes it an excellent all-over cleanser. Cascara sagrada works as well as senna but is less likely to cause cramping so is generally preferred, although cascara can also cause cramping so do not use in amounts higher than recommended.

Vitacost CoQ10 - VitaCost's Vitacost line has some of the best prices on CoQ10.  Japanese pharmaceutical quality in softgels (rice bran oil base) or dry capsules.  When using dry caps, eat a few raw nuts or other oily food along with it to greatly enhance absorption. Note that the price of CoQ10 has come down a great deal in the last few years as there is no longer a shortage in Japan so CoQ10 is now an affordable supplement. People usually take CoQ10 as a heart and circulation supplement, to support liver function, and as a super antioxidant that works on the mitochondrial cellular level.

Here's the spiel from the Vitacost website: Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is a natural substance found in every cell of the body. CoQ10 plays an important part in energy production, serving as a crucial component in the generation of ATP, the body's main source of fuel. Over time, the amount of Co Q10 produced by the body begins to naturally decline. It's believed that insufficient levels of coenzyme 10 may lead to less efficient functioning of organs, especially for those with higher concentrations of the co q10 enzyme, including the heart and liver. Supplementing with co q 10 vitamins may help replenish the body's stores of CoQ10, giving cells the raw materials they need to function properly. 

Vitacost Cranberry Extract provides 400mg standardized cranberry extract per capsule along with a little vitamin C to boost the effects.

Vitacost CreaPure Creatine (formerly Vitacost Creatin Monohydrate) is a compound found naturally in our bodies that supports muscle energy. 95% of it is stored in muscle tissues. Creatine is also found in the liver, pancreas and kidneys, and is transported to muscles through the bloodstream.
Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate), and ultimately becomes the primary energy source-ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Creatine monohydrate is especially useful in sports nutrition because it promotes endurance and recovery rates after intense workouts, and it may support decreased feelings of stress and fatigue. Creatine can be found in many fish (like herring, salmon and tuna) as well as beef. However, if consumption in the diet is not adequate, supplementation can be helpful.
3 capsules provide
Creatine Monohydrate (CreaPure ®) 2,250 mg

Vitacost ForsLean Coleus Forskohlii Extract is a standardized extract from the roots of the Coleus forskohlii plant, a member of the mint family, native to India, but also found in Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Nepal. Practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine traditionally used the herb for promoting lung and cardiovascular health.
Forskolin, the active ingredient in the herb, has been reported to have beneficial effects for thyroid function. It stimulates the release of the thyroid hormone. Low levels of thyroid may cause symptoms including fatigue, poor mood, weight gain and dry skin.
It also helps maintain healthy levels of a cell-regulating substance called cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate). Normally, cAMP is formed when a stimulatory hormone binds to a receptor site on the cell membrane, triggering activation of adenylate cyclase. Forskolin appears to bypass hormone-receptor interactions and activates adenylate cyclase, inducing a rise in cAMP levels. This can be useful in some disorders where the cAMP and cGMP levels are skewed, such as psoriasis. Forskolin may also promote favorable changes in body composition by increasing lean body mass and decreasing body fat percentages.

Coleus Forskohlii Extract (standardized to 10% forskohlin)(ForsLean ®) 250 mg

Vitacost Gamma E Tocopherol Complex is a fine supplement rich in gamma tocopherols along with alpha, beta, and delta tococherols. Now Gamma E Complex (see above) costs about the same but adds tocotrienols, another expensive E complex, but is a little lower in gamma tocopherol (440mg versus 300mg per 2 softgels).One of the main actions of vitamin E is preserving and recycling stores of vitamin C so it makes sense to also ensure adequate consumption of vitamin C, although much less is needed when also using vitamin E. Using a full spectrum vitamin E product that contains gamma and beta forms is important since some research shows that using plain vitamin E products that only contain alpha tocopherols can actually do more harm than good. See the Vitamin E section for more information.

Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) 200 IU 666%

Vitacost Lecithin Lecithin is a very inexpensive supplement but usually recommended to be used in large amounts. It helps remove fatty deposits, including those in the arteries. It is also a rich source of choline which supports liver and nerve functions. Lecithin is a building block of cell membranes, too. lecithin is an important nutrient, especially where the brain, liver, muscle and reproductive organs are concerned. Lecithin is often used in formulas which combine oils with other ingredients such as alcohol or water since it emulsifies oils (breaks them into smaller droplets) and only a tiny amount is necessary for this action. Note that this is soy source lecithin. Electroherbalism warns against using soy protein and other soy products (see Problems with Soy) but soy lectins are not present in the oils or lecithin - despite the similar sound of lecithin and lectin they are completely different things. Lecithin can also be had by eating plenty of eggs.

Vitacost Longevatrol Longevatrol is a standardized resveratrol supplement which contains 50mg of resveratrol and 40mg of polyphenols per gelcap. Resveratrol and polyphenols are the chemicals in red wine which are thought to provide the most health benefits such as providing a high amount of antioxidant protection, reducing the potential for harm from eating fatty foods, protecting the liver, and improving circulation and cholesterol disorders. Resveratrol supplements are very popular since they provide these benefits without the alcohol, plus in much larger amounts - it would take between 50 and 125 glasses of red wine to provide the resveratrol in one capsule of Longevatrol.
Longevinex is a similar product but many consider it to be overpriced and overhyped. The website for Longevinex talks a lot about resveratrol but does not even provide a guaranteed potency of resveratrol, just polyphenols, and only a paltry 15mg of polyphenols per capsule at that! Add to this the outrageous price of Longevinex per serving ($37 per 30 capsules as of 2008) and one can see why Longevatrol is a very popular supplement among people who used to use Longevinex.
The Vitacost line also contains other resveratrol products including Vitacost Resveratrol with Grape Seed and Red Wine Extracts and Vitacost Resveratrol with Green Tea, C, Grape Complex, both of which are also excellent values with guaranteed potencies.

Vitacost Magnesium Taurinate is a form of magnesium often used for heart and circulation problems, especially high blood presssure. Magnesium is the first line supplement to use in heart disease conditions, and binding it with taurine, an amino acid that improves heart function, is an excellent way to deliver it. L-taurine may also help in clearing free radicals and balancing cholesterol levels. Binding magnesium to an amino or other acid makes it much better absorbed, too. See the Mineral Section for more information.

Vitacost Mega EFA is one of the least expensive high quality molecularly distilled omega 3 EPA fish oils capsules available. See the EFA Supplement Section for more information. Note that Natural Factors Rx Omega-3 Factors is the same product as Vitacost Mega EFA, so look for the best price between the two. For those who do not like the large gelcaps of this product or the Rx Omega-3, Vitacost has a new item called Mega EFA 2 which is the same product but in gelcaps half the size, so twice as many are required to get the same effect, but are useful for those who do not like to take large gelcaps.

Vitacost Nattokinase is a potent enzyme extracted from the Japanese food known as natto, which is made from fermented soybeans. Fermenting soy decreases its harmful effects (see Problems with Soy). Discovered by Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi in the 1980s, NK may be effective at enhancing the body's production of clot-dissolving agents, which in turn, may help to naturally dissolve blood clots associated with heart attacks and stroke as well as thin blood which is too "thick." Nattokinase is therefore often used by people to promote cardiovascular health.

Vitacost Olive Leaf Extract is a source of phytochemicals (plant-based enzymes), including oleuropein, which is broken down into elenolic acid (in the form of calcium elenolate-a calcium salt). Elenolic acid is believed to have anti-microbial properties. It interferes with the processes of pathogens-including viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and yeast- by disupting their replication and spreading throughout the body. In addition to supporting immune function, olive leaf extract may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and boost energy. It also functions as an antioxidant, working to protect body cells from the damaging effects of free radical molecules.See the Antifungal General, Antibacterial General, and Antiviral General regimens for more information. Vitacost Olive Leaf Extract is an excellent value for an 18% extract with a full 500mg.

Olive Leaf Extract (standardized 18% oleuropein) 500 mg

Vitacost Origanox is a patented oregano extract that is a water-soluble antioxidant. Origanox possesses numerous free radical-scavenging properties, may support anti-inflammatory responses and acts as a microbial and antifungal agent. A recent Georgetown University Medical Center study* published in the medical literature indicates oregano is highly effective at killing numerous bacteria, viruses and fungi-more than any other natural compound tested. Origanox contains rosmarinic acid, which has been found to reduce cardiotoxicity in patients taking a popular anti-tumor drug. The October 2005 edition of Biochemical Pharmacology published results** from a study that proved rosmarinic acid can inhibit ADR-induced apoptosis (cell death) in certain cardiac muscle cells.

Vitacost Phosphatidylserine is a nutrient that maintains the integrity of cell membranes and youthful synaptic plasticity (meaning it protects cells against age-related deterioration). PS has been shown to be effective at helping to improve memory and neural function. Two health claims of PS have been recognized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), an important achievement in itself, and these include reducing the risk of cognitive dysfunction in the elderly, and the second is that PS may reduce the risk of dementia in the elderly. Vitacost Phosphatidylserine (PS) Complex is the best standardized form available, and has been found to be well-tolerated. See the Alzheimer's and Stress Regimen for more information.
1 capsule provides SerinAid™ (20% Phosphatidylserine) 500 mg

Vitacost Phytoestrogen Complex is primarily used for pre and post menopause symptoms. It acts by normalizing hormone levels in the body, particularly boosting that of estrogen. Electroherbalism often warns against the use of soy products since they raise estrogen levels unless this is the desired effect, which it certainly is with this product. See the Menopause Regimen for more information.

Vitacost Potassium & Magnesium contains the proper ratio of potassium and magnesium that is in a (very) healthy diet and is a good way to boost the levels of these nutrients. Primarily used to improve heart function and circulation disorders. Potassium works with sodium to help regulate fluids in the cells, and to equalize the acid-alkaline balance in the blood. This aids in proper water balance and helps synthesize proteins. It has been shown to promote healthier blood pressure levels. Potassium and magnesium are also used by the autonomic nervous system, which controls heart beat, brain functions and other processes. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including supporting normal muscle and nerve function, heart rhythm and healthy bones. It is also involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. The body cannot store potassium without magnesium, so this is why they are sometimes supplemented together. See the Mineral Section for more information.

Vitacost Activated Quercetin Complex contains primarily quercetin, a bioflavonoid that acts as an antihistamine, so allergic reactions and symptoms may be reduced. Vitamin C works synergistically with quercetin to provide antioxidant and immunity benefits; it's also useful in promoting healthier skin and blood vessels, as well as increased healing time for wounds. Bromelain also assists in the reduction of allergic symptoms. It's a natural enzyme derived from pineapple that supports improved digestion of proteins and other foods, and it helps enhance the assimilation of herbs, vitamins and other nutrients. Finally, magnesium is also used since it provides additional antihistamine properties and supports overall muscle and nerve function. See the Allergy Regimen for more information.
Serving Size: 3 Capsules provides
Vitamin C (as magnesium ascorbate) 646 mg 1,076%
Magnesium (as magnesium ascorbate) 86 mg 22%
Quercetin 1,000 mg
Bromelain (1,200 GDU/g)(esterase plant enzyme) 500 mg

Vitacost Red Yeast Rice with CoQ10 - NSI's red yeast rice supplement also contains a good deal of CoQ10 along with inositol hexaniacinate (also known as no-flush niacin). CoQ10 and inositol hexaniacinate are used to promote healthy cholesterol levels and improve circulation. However, red yeast rice appears to directly slow the liver from producing cholesterol by possibly harming the liver which in Electroherbalism's view is a questionable method. It is far better to provide nutrients to the body to improve vein health so that the liver is not triggered to produce excessive cholesertol. Despite this, CoQ10 will help protect the liver and strengthen the veins such that any harmful effects are mitigated and this may be a helpful supplement to quickly lower cholesterol. It does get good reviews on the Vitacost website to this effect. See the Cholesterol Regimen for more information.
2 capsules contain
1200mg red yeast rice
60mg CoQ10
100mg niacin (inositol hexaniacinate)
25mg inositol.(inositol hexaniacinate)

Vitacost SAM-e - S-adenosyl methionine (SAM-e) promotes healthy mood, liver and joint function. Numerous studies going back two decades, including a 2002 study sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS), show that SAM-e is quite safe and effective for promoting healthy mood and liver function, as well as joint function. SAM-e supplementation benefits aging people, as they are prone to experience joint discomfort and immobilization. NSI® SAM-e is pharmaceutical grade, full potency, and stabilized. SAM-e supplements contain amounts of both the active SS form and the inactive RS form. Vitacost SAM-e undergoes a natural process of microbiological fermentation, and is then specially processed without solvents. This process ensures an active SS level of 68-80%, the highest concentration available. See the Depression and Anxiety and Arthritis Regimens for more information.

S-Adenosyl Methionine (from 400 mg of SAM-e tosylate disulfate) (SSAMeT)

Vitacost Eleuthero Root is an herb, more popularly known as Siberian Ginseng, that's a distant cousin to Asian ginseng. It may promote healthier immune function and offer protection against colds and viruses because it is rich in complex polysaccharides. However, Eleuthero root is most often used to combat stress, both physical and mental. Eleuthro is considered an "adaptogen" agent, which means it can help the body adapt to stress.

Eleuthero root 648mg

Vitacost Turmeric Extract
Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, contains a mixture of powerful phytonutrients known as curcuminoids. Curcuminoids have antioxidant properties, meaning they fight the damaging effects of free radical molecules in the body. They've also been shown to have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and significant anti-inflammatory effects. Vitacost once had two products called Turmeric. This one is curcumin, turmeric extract. The one below, Vitacost Turmeric Curcuma Longa root, is plain turmeric rhizome. As of 2008 they finally distinguished the two products to prevent confusion. Curcumin is Electroherbalism's favorite super antioxidant. Now Curcumin is a similar product so if curcumin is used on a regular basis check to see which is the better value.
1 capsule provides
Turmeric Extract (Curcuma longa)(standardized to 95% curcuminoids) - 900 mg
Black Pepper Extract (Piper nigrum)(fruit)(Bioperine®) 5 mg

Vitacost Turmeric Curcuma Longa is plain turmeric root (rhyzome) capsules. This is a hard product to find. Plain turmeric is also a good antioxidant, but not nearly as strong as curcumin, its extract form. However, plain turmeric appears to be more beneficial to fight some intestinal disorders, especially when combined with fennel seeds. See IBS and Crohn's Regimen, Vitiligo Regimen, and The Kitchen Herbalist for more information.

Vitacost Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids, Quercetin, Green Tea, L-Lysine and L-Proline follow the Linus Pauling and Mathias Rath recommendations of providing a large amount of lysine and proline along with vitamin C. It also adds bioflavonoids including quercetin, plus green tea. However, this product is advertised more to fight cancer than heart disease. Better for heart and circulation problems are products which contain mineral ascorbates form of vitamin C so they also provide calcium and especially magnesium, which is crucial for these problems, in which case a product like Source Naturals L-Proline L-Lysine (see below) is better. This reviewer prefers the Source Naturals product for another reason, too. It is that green tea can upset some people's stomachs and cause cramping and Source Naturals does not contain it but instead contains grape seed and hawthorn berry extracts instead, more useful antioxidants and cardiovascular supplements than green tea. See the Vitamin C section for more information.

Nutricology Artemisinin
Assists with Hemorrhoids, Fevers, Malaria. Kills Parasites and Bacteria. Hypoallergenic. Artemisinin (Qing hao su) is the active constituent of the herb Artemisia annua (sweet wormwood). This inconspicuous herb originated in Europe and Asia and has since spread to North America. It is now a common weed around the world. Test tube studies indicate that Artemisia can kill parasites and bacteria, supporting the traditional notion of using it for parasitic infections of the gastrointestinal tract. Both types of wormwood, artemisia annua (as in this product) and artemisia absynthium are both considered excellent antiparasitics but the annua type is thought to be better absorbed outside the digestive tract so more effective for blood borne illnesses. New research is confirming the use of artemisinin for diseases such as cancer and some think it may be a potent type of chemotherapy but without side effects. Nutricology is a highly regarded brand of artemisinin but Holley Pharmaceuticals makes what is considered the best although it is very expensive. However, Doctor's Best Artemisinin is manufactured by Holley so is also highly regarded and is among the least expensive. See the Antiparasitic and Malaria Regimens for more information.

40 drops provides a Proprietary Blend:of Horseradish Root, Thyme Aerial Parts, Yarrow Aerial Parts, and Eyebright Aerial Parts. 1 ml

Planetary Formulas Stone Free - Good for stones and deposits of the liver, kidney, gallbladder, and bladder, with a similar action as FutureBiotics Silymarin Plus, but with more diuretic action, a little more antiseptic ability, and more geared toward removing mineral deposits in the liver, kidney, and gall while Silymarin Plus is better for fatty and toxic liver conditions.  Stone Free's gentle formula contains a good amount of turmeric which provides antiseptic actions. Also reduces pain in the urinary tract with marshmallow root. Great formula for UTIs to remove the deposits which make them chronic. One of the best formulas when extra kidney and liver support is needed in preventing detox reactions. Can be used with additional magnesium and B6 when using for stone or other mineral deposit removal.  Excellent formula for shoulder and upper back pain, which are usually caused by a congested liver. See the Kidney Cleanse and the Liver Cleanse Regimens for more information.

RenewLife Paragone - Very good antiparasitic with laxative action.

Similar formula to Nature's Secret Parastroy, but Paragone is preferred by many since the high dose of zinc in the Parastroy, although adding to the effects, can cause cramping.  Either can also be used for fungal infections.

Source Naturals Neuromins DHA
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid and functions as an important component of brain tissue. DHA plays a significant role in cerebral development throughout the life cycle, especially during fetal development and infancy. Pregnant mothers transfer DHA directly to the fetus, via the placenta, to support rapid brain and retina development. During infancy, DHA is also supplied to the newborn via mother's breast milk and is important for continued cerebral development.
Some people have lower concentrations of DHA due to low-fat or vegetarian diets, which may provide inadequate amounts of this fatty acid. Supplementation with DHA can help assure adequate amounts to support normal development of the brain and retina. See the EFA Supplement section for more information.

Source Naturals Pancreatin 8x
Source Naturals' Pancreatin 8x is one of the most potent enzyme products available in terms of protease, amylase, and lipase per serving. Enzymatic Therapy Mega-Zyme is stronger per gram since it is 10x instead of 8x potency, but the Mega-Zyme tablets are about 170mg and provide 82,500 USP units of protease per serving of two tablets while the Source Naturals Pancreatin 8x contains 500mg per capsule and has 200,000 USP units of protease per serving of 2 capsules. However, some may prefer the smaller tablets of the Mega-Zyme even if twice as many are required, plus they are also rated for trypsin and chymotrypsin, which may be important for fighting diseases like cancer, and Mega-Zyme also includes a small amount of bicarbonate minerals, necessary for the best assimilation. The Source Naturals Pancreatin 8x may include trypsin and chymotrypsin, as do most pancreatin products, and there may be a lot - it is just not rated. Also note that the Pancreatin 8x provides much more lipase (the fat enzyme) per serving.
Formula: Two capsules provide 1000mg of pancreatin 8x yielding the following USP units of activity:
Protease 200,000
Amylase 200,000
Lipase 36,000


TeamTrade Serovera is made for Crohn's, IBS, colitis, GERD, diverticulitis, and other digestive problems, as well as psoriasis, auto immune disorders, and CFS, et al. Serovera is a simlar product to both Digestinol as well as Molocure. All of these products are highly concentrated (1000:1) aloe extracts and contain only aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides (AMP), with some lecithin or glutamine. With an average cost of around 270 capsules for $159, they appears to be highly overpriced supplements. However, they contain 375mg AMP per capsule. Good aloe juice contains about 750mg AMP per liter, so each capsule is the equivalent of a half liter of aloe juice. Looking at it in this light, they are actually a good value. If this cannot be used due to the high price, George's Aloe Juice is a fractionally distilled aloe juice (all the laxative and bitter chemicals are removed), tastes almost like water, and is inexpensive. Many of the same benefits can also be achieved by using cultured cabbage juice which is very inexpensive to make. Note that Serovera has an annoying autoplay video on the homepage so turn the volume down before clicking. .

Twinlab L Ornithine is recommended to boost nitric oxide potential in the blood and raise HGH levels for anti-aging regimens. Ornithine is used in the Liver Flush regimen to ensure a good night's sleep, and can also be used for this purpose when not performing a liver flush. It is typically taken in large amounts for most purposes, but one of the major benefits of ornithine is that less is needed for the same benefits for which arginine is typically used. Arginine and ornithine are often used together.

This nutrient can be manufactured in the body by the intestinal flora but plays an important role in the metabolism of fat, protein, and carbs, and in the creation of lipids. neurotransmitters, steroid hormones and hemoglobin. Multivitamins provide sufficient amounts and pantothenic acid is not often used separately.

World Nutrition Vitalzym is a vegetarian enzyme product which is advertised as high potency but does not state its potency. Nevertheless, despite its high price, it is a popular enzyme supplement for pain control, to improve joint and muscle flexibility, and to fight other effects of aging. It has a good deal of serrapeptase and protease (the first two ingredients) plus papain, bromelain, amylase (enzyme to digest starch), and lipase (enzymes to digest fat) along with amla (a berry rich in vitamin C) and the flavonoid rutin. Serrapeptase, like protease, is a proteolytic enzyme (digests protein) and not common in even vegetarian enzymes due to the high cost, which could explain Vitalzym's high price. Vitalzymes are also enterically coated to increase absorption. Until recently, Vitalzym was rarely available at a discount but it can now be purchased for $50 off the retail price making it around $110 for the large bottle of 450 capsules.
3 capsules provide 1500mg of a proprietary blend of protease, serrapeptase, papain, bromelain, amylase, lipase, rutin and amla.
