Because it is produced in the body, it is referred to as "nonessential," meaning that no food or supplements are necessary for humans to ingest. Because L-Arginine is naturally converted into nitric oxide by the human body, researchers have conducted preliminary studies to determine the effectiveness in using it as a supplement for supporting cardiovascular health. Other studies indicate that L-Arginine promotes immune health and liver support. Athletes supplement with L-Arginine for its benefits in maintaining lean muscle mass while performing strenuous exercise.*

Premium organic Eleuthero is used in this product.
Eleuthero is recognized as being a gentle alternative to Panax Ginseng. Eleuthero is used during times of stress and is especially notable as an immune tonic in the middle aged and elderly.

Eleuthero was the first herb to be classified as an adaptogen by Russian scientists and was therefore, the model for all future research on this group of herbs. An adaptogen is a substance that helps the body adapt to various types of stress. In order to achieve this status a plant must meet the following criteria:
It must be safe.
It must also have a broad-spectrum, normalizing action that brings an organism back to homeostasis.
It must produce a nonspecific response in the body.

In the late 60's and 70's multiple studies of this herb were conducted in healthy people and Eleuthero was found to increase the ability of subjects to withstand stress (from heat, noise, exercise and increase in workload). Subjects also experienced increases in mental alertness and work output. As a result of this research, Eleuthero was being used by Russian athletes and astronauts to prepare them for their events.

Eleuthero contains a group of constituents known as eleutherosides it also contains triterpenoid sapponins, and glycans, and many others. Modern science has not proven either exactly how eleuthero works or the relevance of each of its various constituents. Most likely it is a combination of many of the constituents, and is therefore best to take the whole herb.

The extract is normally standardized to 0.8% eleutherosides B and E, and is normally taken at doses between 100-200 mg per day.  The standardized extract is a ten-fold concentrate of the whole herb that we sell.  The dose for the organic whole herb is 1000-2000 mg per day (or 1-2 grams).  The German Commission E and the British Herbal Pharmocopeia both recommend 2-3 grams per day for a variety of uses.  


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Not recommended for long-term use without periodic breaks.  Not recommended for use during pregnancy or while nursing, until further research verifies no contraindications.  Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

The Science of Tribulus?
Tribulus terrestris is used in the Indian Ayurvedic tradition as a Rasayana, a dietary supplement or practice promoting rejuvenation, mental and physical health, as well as providing a defense against aging and challenging environmental factors. Tribulus is traditionally regarded as a sexual rejuvenator, for general fatigue and for healthy urinary tract function.  Placebo-controlled clinical trials of Tribulus in men with sexual performance concerns found improvements in libido and frequency of sexual intercourse. Laboratory studies support the traditional use of Tribulus for male sexual function and for kidney and urinary tract health.

Freshly milled organic Ginkgo leaf is combined with a standardized Ginkgo extract containing 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones.

Ginkgo biloba is the world's oldest living species of tree, dating back more than 200 million years. Individual trees live as long as 1,000 years. It is now commonly planted in the cities of Europe, Japan, Southeast Asia, and the United States because of its hardiness and resistance to infection and pollution.

Although the medicinal use of the seed originates from China nearly 5,000 years ago, it was not until the 20th century that the leaves of the tree were used in European herbal medicine. Many of Ginkgo's current uses originate from research and clinical observations during the 1950's in Europe. In France and Germany, it is one of the most popular prescribed medicines.

In the United States, Ginkgo is one of the top-selling herbal supplements. This popularity can be attributed to large number of successful clinical studies that have been published. The Federal Government's Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) research program is currently funding several studies featuring this herb.

These capsules supply the scientifically validated dosage of extract (60 mg extracted to supply 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones). This is supported by the addition of pure unadulterated Ginkgo leaf. The whole leaf has hundreds of compounds and flavonoids related to the flavone glycosides, which have yet to be studied.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Individuals taking anticoagulant medication should consult with their health care professional before taking supplements containing Ginkgo. Discontinue use two weeks prior to scheduled surgery or dental procedures, and inform surgeon.  Although rare, some people may experience headaches or mild gastrointestinal discomfort when taking Ginkgo.  Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue use if unusual symptoms occur.  Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

Whey protein supports the body's ability to maintain, increase, and repair muscle. It also provides micro-proteins such as B-lactoglobulin, A-lactalbumin, immunoglobulin, glycomacropeptide, and lactoferrin, which are important for immune system function.*
Whey surpasses even whole eggs in its ability to deposit nitrogen in the muscle. Our Show Me The Whey has highly bioavailable undenatured proteins and branched chain amino acids (BCAA's), making it ideal to promote muscle repair, maintenance, and growth. The free-form amino acid glutamine has been added to further support muscle health.*

Our proprietary process uses only natural enzymes and high quality membrane filters to separate the whey and preserve essential nutrients. This state-of-the-art processing using low temperatures creates a complete spectrum of whey peptides, improving nitrogen retention, supporting immune system health, and providing antioxidant protection. Whey supports cellular glutathione levels, one of nature's important antioxidants.*

The addition of soy lecithin allows for easy mixing. This lecithin is produced from traditional non-GM soybeans and the non-GMO status is analytically confirmed by ELISA or PCR testing. The Fair Trade, organic cocoa in our product uses cocoa beans harvested from the Yacao cooperative in the Dominican Republic.

We were no longer able to purchase the New Zealand whey with sunflower lecithin so we have changed to a new domestic source - the whey is from milk cows raised right here in the US, in Wisconsin. These cows come from smaller farms, have access to grazing in fresh pasture and are not treated with rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone). The soy used for easier mixing is non-GMO, analytically confirmed to be GMO free by DNA-level testing Whey protein powder is an excellent source of protein, even surpassing whole egg, soy, beef, casein or milk in its biological activity in the body and its ability to deposit nitrogen in the muscles. Whey is also a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAA), which make up 1/3 of the amino acids in muscle protein. Whey is the only protein source that contains immunoglobulins, which are essential in maintaining immune system function. Our Whey Protein Powder in natural chocolate flavor is a high quality protein supplement that is formulated to be a highly efficient, rich source of protein -- now with Fair Trade Certified, organic cocoa.

Provides 18 g of protein per serving with no lactose or fat
Enhanced with 100 mg of L-Glutamine
Provides important proteins B-lactoglobulin, A-lactalbumin, immunoglobulin and lactoferrin
Contains stevia, a natural sweetener which has been shown to have no affect on blood sugar levels
Made with Fair Trade Certified, organic cocoa for a richer chocolate taste
Microfiltered, which refers to the filtration process used to purify the whey
Cold processed resulting in increased biological value or utilization by the body
Manufactured from cows not treated with rBGH
