ProC3G from Black Rice Extract 100 mg 60 Veg Caps

ProC3G from Black Rice Extract 100 mg 60 Veg Caps - In the discussion of high-powered antioxidants, there have historically been two main contenders: vitamin C and resveratrol. Careful and extensive research has demonstrated that these two nutrients deliver antioxidant protection against free radicals, thus helping us live longer, healthier lives. Now comes C3G (Cyanidin-3-glucoside), the next generation in cutting-edge, anti-aging nutraceuticals. ProC3G(TM) is a highly concentrated, natural source C3G supplement derived from Oryza sativa black rice. With a 35% C3G content, it delivers 10 times more C3G than the best-selling anthocyanin extracts on the market today. Each capsule of Swanson Ultra ProC3G delivers 35 mg of C3G. Anthocyanins (particularly C3G) have been found to nourish the body by supporting a variety of fundamental mechanisms. C3G may defend against free radicals generated by oxidative stress and has been shown to support healthy cellular aging through its powerful antioxidant activity. In addition, published studies reveal benefits for specific parts of the body: Vision & Eye Health --a 2011 study found that C3G defends the retina from the potentially harmful effects of light. Cardiovascular Health --a 2009 study suggests that C3G may support healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range; a 2011 study demonstrated that C3G supports healthy blood flow and vasodilation (widening of the blood vessels). Glucose Metabolism --C3G was shown in preliminary models to support the maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels through vascular mechanisms and the promotion of superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. Weight Loss --in vitro research suggests that anthocyanins may influence gene expression for fat metabolism, signaling the body to burn rather than store fat.

Siliphos - 90 Vegetarian Capsules

Thorne Research Siliphos - 90 Vegetarian Capsules Thorne Research Siliphos is a highly bioavailable silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex.  A well-researched, standardized botanical extract, milk thistle contains potent antioxidants that can protect liver cells from free radical damage, strengthen liver cell membranes, and help maintain the liver's built-in antioxidant system - glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD). In numerous studies, its active ingredient, silymarin, has been utilized to prevent liver cell damage by carbon tetrachloride, ethanol, acetaminophen, mushroom toxins, and benzopyrene from automobile exhaust. Silymarin has also been shown to help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response. provides potent liver support helps maintain normal glutathione levels phytosome preparation provides higher liver concentrations of silybin dual liver-protective benefits from milk thistle extract and phosphatidylcholine Siliphos provides the benefits of silymarin (flavonoid complex from milk thistle) and phosphatidylcholine in one compound. Siliphos is a phytosome, a water-soluble flavonoid (in this case, silybin) made lipid-friendly by the addition of phosphatidylcholine. This allows for better incorporation of this liver-protective flavonoid into liver cell membranes. Of the three flavonoids comprising silymarin, silybin predominates and is the most potent. Studies indicate the silybin-phosphatidylcholine complex in Siliphos provides superior bioavailability compared to conventional milk thistle products. Phosphatidylcholine is not merely a passive "carrier" for the active flavonoid silybin, but is itself an active ingredient with documented efficacy for promoting liver health. Silybin protects the liver because of its potent antioxidant activity, while phosphatidylcholine helps repair and replace cell membranes. These constituents likely offer the synergistic benefit of sparing liver cells from destruction.

ChondroSamine Plus with Glucosamine, Purified Chondroitin Sulfate - 90 Capsules

Biotics Research ChondroSamine Plus - 90 Capsules Biotics Research ChondroSamine Plus is a comprehensive chondro-support formulation for connective tissue, like cartilage found in joints. These tissues require adequate supplies of important nutrient building blocks to maintain their integrity. Supplies glucosamine (as hydrochloride) with purified chondroitin sulfates and an array of important synergist including vitamins, minerals, MSM, and the antioxidant enzymes SOD and catalase. ChondroSamine Plus is the most comprehensive formulations of their kind, supplying a wide array of important nutrient synergists to Glucosamine and Purified Chondroitin Sulfate. Included are MSM, vitamin C, Manganese, Niacinamide, Pantothenic Acid, Folic Acid, B12, Superoxide dismutase, Catalase and  Saccharum officinarum (cane fiber) extract, a botanical source of silicon superior to Horse Tail or Bamboo. Cartilage is composed primarily of collagen, water and proteoglycans. Collagen is a protein that forms a fibrous network that resists tensile forces. Proteoglycans compressive (weightbearing) forces.  Proteoglycans (PGs) have a high affinity for water. This creates equilibrium between the proteoglycan gels and the collagen fibers.  Cartilage relies upon diffusion of nutrients through the cartilage matrix from distant blood vessels in bone and synovial membranes.  Inflammation is characterized by local edema and swelling. If present near joints, this increase in pressure slows diffusion of nutrients from blood to chondrocytes. Inflammatory processes increase free radicals and may compromise cell function. Purified Chondroitin SulfatesChondroitin sulfates (CS) are glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are large heterogeneous biological polymers used by the body to maintain proper elastic integrity within tissues. The chief GAG of cartilage is Chondroitin Sulfate (CS). CS is a repeating disaccharide, specifically glucuronic acid and sulfated N-acetylglucosamine.

Bluebonnet Nutrition Pycnogenol 100 mg - 30 Vegetarian Capsules Bluebonnet Nutrition Pycnogenol provides a natural, water-soluble bioflavonoid plant extract concentrated in oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Bluebonnet Nutrition Pycnogenolis derived from the bark of the European coastal pine, Pinus maritime. Bluebonnet Nutrition Pycnogenol is available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption. Antioxidants Free radicals are generated by exposure to harmful environmental factors, such as: smog, ozone, chemicals, drugs, smoking and radiation, as well as during normal physiological processes, especially in defense against microbes and other foreign substances. Free radicals can damage DNA, proteins and lipids within cells, altering or inhibiting cellular function. Dietary antioxidants, such as vitamins E and C, carotenoids and others, function to help control or eliminate free radicals by donating electrons, thus, maintaining cellular health by offsetting the damage they can potentially cause. Antioxidants that are available through the diet are considered exogenous antioxidants and include: amino acids [N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), taurine and L-glutathione (tripeptide)], vitamins C and E, carotenoids (beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin), and minerals (selenium and zinc). Antioxidants produced in the body are considered endogenous antioxidants and include: ubiquinone/ubiquinol (CoQ10), alpha lipoic acid and the master cellular defense enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and many more. However, many factors have been found to compromise the levels of endogenous antioxidants in the body making supplementation essential, such as the normal aging process, certain medications and oxidative stress. About Bluebonnet Nutrition Bluebonnet Nutrition was founded in 1991 on the basic principle that they offer the cleanest, purest, most natural nutritional supplements offered exclusively through independent natural food retailers.
