We strive to do the very best we can to help our bodies obtain optimal health.
In this day and age however, eating the right foods and balancing it with the proper exercises sometimes is not enough.
Our lifestyle is so fast-paced, and often our job/work and obligations create a stressful jungle. The daily mental pressures compounded with the bountiful and readily available refined and highly processed foods, that we conscientiously want to avoid but accidentally eat due to lack of time to prepare our meals, sets a perfect stage for nutrient deficiencies which could lead to various chronic diseases.
The nutrient dietary reference intake (DRI) and recommended dietary allowances (RDA) that is used as a general guide line for 98 percent of our population, is provided by our government with the intentions of preventing deficiency diseases.
For example: Take the DRI for Vitamin C to prevent scurvy, Thiamin to prevent pellagra, Vitamin A to prevent night blindness.
The DRIs have little to do with optimum health recommendations.
In addition, our soil and thus its produce is not only nutrient deficient but also contains harmful pesticides and herbicides.
Many research have shown and suggest that certain nutrients can lower the risks for chronic diseases such as: cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disorders, type 2 diabetes, cancer, dementia and osteoporosis.
Antioxidants, along with omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D may help reduce the risk for certain cancers.
It's been extensively studied that vitamin B complex can help lower blood homocysteine levels, which when elevated is associated with risk for certain neurological disorders, cardiovascular disease and stoke.
All of the above mentioned, including the fact that we are all different with varying degrees of nutrient requirements and biochemical make up, when asked the question "should I be taking nutritional supplements?", my answer is "Yes".
For many years, I have researched and tried various nutritional supplement producers in the market. There are but a handful of companies that follow good manufacturing practices (GMPs) that produce superior products using superior and pure ingredients.
Douglas Laboratories and Juice Plus are some of the few.
I have been taking both Douglas Labs supplements and Juice Plus for many years, (and so do my family).

Ultra Preventive X (Multi Vitamin/Mineral) 120/$41.00
Douglas Laboratories®is proud to announce that Ultra Preventive®X now contains Metafolin®, a patented, natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) as well as 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 per serving. 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme (5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR)). In certain populations, the body’s ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences. Metafolin®contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier.Additional vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) has been added to this formula as numerous scientists now feel that supplementation with vitamin D at levels greater than previously thought necessary is critical to helping maintain overall health.
Resveratrol ( Anti Oxidant) 30/$51.50
Resveratrol is a naturally occurring plant polyphenolcommonly found in grape vines and skins. Resveratrol is highly regarded as a powerful antioxidant and may play important roles in supporting normal cardiovascular and mitochondrial function.†Resveratrol may also be useful in supporting sustained muscle function and reducing muscle fatigue.†Recent studies demonstrate that it can help maintain normal oxidative responses in human and animal cells. Other studies indicate it may also be supportive in maintaining the normal aging process, by helping to prevent free radical damage that can lead to premature aging of cells.† This product contains Resvida, a pure resveratrol clinically studied for its safety. Resvida is unique among other resveratrol–containing ingredients, as it is not a plant extract, is not derived from plant sources and presents no risk for contamination with pesticides and other potentially unwanted compound
Grape Seed Extract (Anti oxidant) 30/$28.00
FUNCTIONS Polyphenols, part of a broad class of bioflavonoids, are commonly found in grape seeds. One type of polyphenols known as proanthocyanidins are highly regarded for their strong antioxidant properties, and for their functions in supporting the body’s connective tissues and capillary blood vessel system. Proanthocyanidins are among the most powerful natural free-radical scavengers yet discovered. As such, proanthocyanidins have their own unique place in the body’s overall protection against harmful free radical damage. Proanthocyanidins appear to be especially effective in neutralizing highly reactive hydroxyl and singlet oxygen radicals. Both of these reactive oxygen species are involved in inflammatory processes. Proanthocyanidins also support and enhance the activity of vitamin C, and are known for their ability to help support the health of the body's capillary system and connective tissues. Proanthocyanidins have been shown to bind with collagen fibers, thereby protecting them from premature degradation. This helps maintain the natural elasticity of collagen in skin, joints, arteries, capillaries, and other connective tissues.
Quell Fish Oil (Cardiovascular Health, General Health) 60/$59.00
The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids continue to emerge and numerous health organizations around the world recommend adequate daily intake of EPA and DHA. Data continues to accumulate that supports EPA and DHA in cardiovascular health as well as many other areas, including neurological health, vision health, and joint health.† The omega-3 fatty acid EPA is the direct precursor for the prostaglandins, which are involved in helping to maintain the body’s normal inflammatory processes.† DHA plays a major role in the structural integrity of neuronal membranes. DHA is essential for neurological and visual development and is vital throughout pregnancy to support fetal brain growth and formation of the retina and visual cortex.† As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout infancy and adulthood for ongoing optimal function. Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin” is an essential vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body. Vitamin D is thought to play a role in cardiovascular disease by affecting inflammatory mediators. † Vitamin D is fat-soluble, meaning it needs a fat source to be absorbed properly. Therefore, combining Vitamin D with omega-3 fatty acids may help facilitate adequate vitamin D3 absorption intothe body.INDICATIONSQÜELL High EPA Fish Oil is indicated for those individuals that want the added benefit of Vitamin D3 with EPA and DHA in small, pure, and potent softgels.
Ultra Joint Forte (Anti Inflammatory, Joint/Connective Tissue Function) 90/$59.00
DESCRIPTION skin, hair, and nails. Taurine, another sulfurcontaining amino acid is known for its role in bile salt synthesis, cell membrane stability, neuronal excitability and the regulation of osmotic pressure. Sulfur is also an essential element for the glycosaminoglycans of connective tissues and cartilage, and assumes a major role in detoxificationas part of the hepatic sulfur conjugation pathways. Proper detoxification of xenobiotics, such as phenols,and many endogenous and foreign food- or air-bornecompounds depends on an adequate supply ofbiologically active sulfur. Ultra Joint Forte, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contains a synergistic combination of glucosamine, chondroitin, methylsulfonylmethane(MSM®), andastaxanthin. Glucosamine HCl is a well-absorbedsource of glucosamine, an important precursor for the synthesis and maintenance of connective tissues.Chondroitin sulfate also supports formation ofconnective tissues, primarily joint cartilage, and helps protect existing cartilage. MSM®, a derivative ofDMSO, is a naturally occurring compound ofbiologically available sulfur. Astaxanthin is a naturalcarotenoid that can help modulate the body’s normalinflammatory response. Dietary MSM serves as a versatile donor ofmetabolically active sulfur for the synthesis of numerous organosulfur compounds and proteins inthe body. As such, MSM helps maintain normal immune response, lung function, connective tissue metabolism, and muscle contraction.FUNCTIONS Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar found ubiquitously in glycoproteins andglycosaminoglycans. Glycosaminoglycans, formerlynamed mucopolysaccharides, are an integral component of all connective tissues. The degradation of arachidonic acid to certainleukotrienes and prostaglandins via thecyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways can cause an imbalance in normal inflammatory markers. By inhibiting the enzymatic activity of certain proinflammatory cytokines such as cyclooxygenase, the body’s normal response to inflammatory markers canbe moderated. Research indicates that astaxanthin, a natural carotenoid, may play an important role in the moderation of the body’s normal inflammatoryresponse. Human studies also have reported its usefulness in maintaining normal joint andconnective tissue structure and function. As a powerful antioxidant, it also can help protects cells from oxidative and free radical damage. Connective tissue, a fibrous type of body tissue, has various functions. It supports and connects internal organs (ligaments), forms bone, cartilage, and the walls of blood vessels, attaches muscles to bones (tendons), and replaces tissues that have beendamaged following injury. Chondroitin sulfate, a glycosaminoglycan formed in the body, is also used for the synthesis and maintenance of connective tissue, primarily withinthe cartilage matrix. In addition, chondroitin sulfate protects existing cartilage by reducing water loss from the matrix and by inhibiting the enzymatic breakdown of the cartilage. INDICATIONS Sulfur is an indispensable element in humannutrition. As part of the amino acids methionine and cysteine, sulfur is required for the structural integrity and function of almost every protein in the body, including enzymes, serum proteins, and the keratin of
Cardio Edge (Cardiovascular Health, Cholesterol Maintenance) 120/$50.00
Sytrinol™- A unique and powerful ingredient for maintaining already healthy cholesterol health†The healthful effects of both bioflavonoids as well as tocotrienols have been recognized for years. Sytrinol provides a patented and well-researched combination of flavonoids derived from the peel of tangerines and tocotrienols derived palm. Within the peel of certain fruits, compounds belonging to a class of flavonoids called polymethoxylated flavones can be found. These compounds are similar in structure to flavones, but contain additional methyl groups on their ring structure, giving them the name polymethoxylated flavones – also known as PMFs. The primary PMFs present in Sytrinol are nobiletin and tangeretin. Science on PMFs dates back to the 1960s on their antioxidant properties. Specifically, with respect to cholesterol metabolism, PMFs have been shown to support normal levels of triglycerides and apolipoprotein B, the structural protein needed for the synthesis of LDLcholesterol1. Nobiletin and tangeretin have also been shown to help maintain healthy diacylglycerol acetyl transferase, an enzyme in the liver involved in the synthesis of triglycerides4. In addition to PMFs, Sytrinol contains tocotrienols derived from palm. Tocotrienols, a group of compounds belonging to the vitamin E family, have also been studied over the years for their ability to act as antioxidants and to help support cardiovascular health. Tocotrienols have been shown to support the body’s normal production of HMG-CoA reductase, the hepatic enzyme responsible for the rate limiting step in the synthesis of cholesterol3. Consequently, the combined action of the PMFs and tocotrienols contained in Sytrinol results in a powerful synergistic action to support cardiovascular health. This effect has been confirmed in both animal as well as human studies1-4. Plant SterolsPlant sterols are naturally occurring plant compounds that have structures similar to, yet slightly different from cholesterol. Typical plant sterols are compounds such as β-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol and can be found in vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, grains and certain types of oils. Research has shown that these compounds compete with the absorption of dietary cholesterol as well as inhibit the re-absorption of endogenous cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract5. Supplementation with plant sterols can significantly lower cholesterol levels and have been shown to work synergistically with other therapies for lowering cholesterol6. Numerous foods including orange juice, rice drink, and margarine now incorporate plant sterols, or sterol esters. Increasingly, dietary supplements are now incorporating plant sterols and using the health claim that has been allowed for products containing at least 800 mg of plant sterols daily. The addition of plant sterols to Cardio-Edge®provides yet another mechanism by which already healthy cholesterol levels can be maintained.Pomegranate Recent science has been focusing on the cardio protective aspects of pomegranate. These brightly colored fruits contains numerous compounds known for their antioxidant capabilities, including anthocyanidins, catechins, tannis, and gallic and ellagic acids. Research has shown that supplementation with pomegranate juice can decrease macrophage lipid accumulation, and cellular cholesterol accumulation in mice7. Recently, research in humans has confirmed a beneficial effect of consuming pomegranate juice on parameters such as LDL oxidation, blood pressure, and blood vessel health8.The combination of Sytrinol, plant sterols, and pomegranate extract present in Cardio-Edge® results in a formula that embodies the most recent science to help maintain cardiovascular health and support already healthy cholesterol levels.
Gluco-Mend ( Blood Sugar Control) 90/$29.00
FUNCTIONS Glucose metabolism that is associated with abnormally high blood glucose can lead to high levels of glycation. Glycation is the non-enzymatic attachment of sugars to major molecules in the body, including proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids. Glycation reactions generate advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) and glycotoxin intermediates. AGEs cause abnormal and destructive functioning of body proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids. AGE-associated damage is suspected in the pathogenesis of many diseases and age-related deteriorations, such as atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and severe diabetic complications, including neuropathy, nephropathy, retinopathy, and cataracts. Gymnema sylvestre is an Ayurvedic botanical that may assist in the regeneration and repair of pancreatic beta cells. Gymnema is also suspected of reducing intestinal glucose absorption. Bitter melon(Momordica charantia) grows in tropical areas, including parts of East Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and South America, where it is used as a food as well as a medicinal remedy. The fruit of this plant lives up to its name—it tastes very bitter. At least three different groups of constituents in bitter melon have been reported to have hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) or other actions of potential benefit in diabetes mellitus. These include a mixture of steroidal saponins known as charantin, insulin-like peptides, and alkaloids. Research shows that (-) hydroxycitric acid helps maintain a healthy balance of hepatic lipogenesis and gluconeogenesis, thus preventing excessive conversion of glucose from carbohydrate into body fat. It is found in Garcinia cambogia, a tropical fruit grown in Asian rain forest area. Research also indicates that (-) hydrocitric acid plays an important role in the regulation of a normal appetite. Alpha-lipoic acid is a fat- and water-soluble, sulfur- containing coenzyme. It functions in the body much like a B-vitamin, since it is involved in energy production. As part of several multi-enzyme complexes located in the mitochondria, alpha-lipoic acid is essential for metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and for the conversion of their energy into ATP. Two of these enzyme complexes, PDH (pyruvate dehydrogenase) and alpha-KGDH (alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase) are part of the citric acid cycle (Krebs cycle), and as such assume a central role for general energy production. Another lipoic acid containing enzyme complex, BCKADH (branched-chain keto-acid dehydrogenase), is involved in deriving energy from the branched chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine, and valine. A related metabolic function of alpha-lipoic acid is its role in blood glucose disposal. This important coenzyme appears to be necessary for the normal transport of blood glucose into the cell. This may be explained by its functions in the glucose-metabolizing enzymes, PDH and alpha-KGDH, but some researchers suspect a more direct role in cellular glucose uptake at the cell membrane. Chromium is anintegral component of the glucose tolerance factor(GTF), a naturally occurring compound of chromium, nicotinic acid, and amino acids that us essential for proper glucose metabolism. Adequate chromium nutrition is essential for the formation of GTF and subsequent control of blood glucose levels.
Resistance Support (Immune Support) 80/$35.00
Studies show that a high percentage of adults in North America and other developed countries eat less than the minimum daily allowance of 10 or more essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for the dietary management of the body’s structure as well as the optimum functioning of its various systems, including the immune system. The Resistance Support Formula™ has been carefully developed to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and other nutrients without danger of toxic build-up or other side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long-term safety. Certain nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and B-complex vitamins are included in high-potency amounts because of the vital roles they play in antioxidant protection, energy production, the maintenance of healthy blood cells, the nervous system, hormonal balance, and more. Minerals and trace elements are provided in their safest and most bioavailable forms. Resistance Support Formula™ contains not only the base formula of Douglas Laboratories' Ultra-Specific Nutrition 2000 Series™ that offers intensive support for the healthy functioning of the body in general, but also a blend of herbs and additional nutrients specifically formulated to offer additional support of the body’s mechanisms that maintain a healthy and effective immune system. Eleutherococcus senticosus has been used for centuries as a panacea in Russian traditional medicine, to maintain and stimulate the function of the body’s various systems, including its immunological defenses. As an adaptogen, Eleutherococcus is thought to increase the body’s resistance to biological and chemical stresses. Eleutherococcus has been shown to increase phagocytosis and lymphocyte activity in response to biological stress. It has been suggested that this herb can stimulate the production of interferon, thus enhancing the functioning of macrophages, natural killer cells, and cytotoxic T cells. Echinacea was traditionally used by Native Americans to treat a variety of disorders where enhancement of the immune system was needed. Clinical studies have demonstrated that echinacea significantly increases the numbers of monocytes and natural-killer (NK) cells in both the spleen and bone marrow within weeks after dietary supplementation. Studies also suggest that echinacea may enhance immune function by increasing antigen-specific immunoglobulin production. Echinacea-treated animals show a significant enhancement of their IgG response to antigen. Echinacea's enhanced production of the immune system cells on the first line of resistance against invading pathogens suggests an important prophylactic role for this botanical.
INDICATIONS Resistance Support Formula™ tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support their immune system for healthier resistance to stress
Candi-Trol (Microbial, Fungal, Yeast & Parasite defense) 90/$28.00
In healthy people, the intestinal microflora consists of balanced amounts of symbiotic microorganisms, providing nutritional benefits to the host. This balance depends on our dietary habits and can easily be disturbed by unhealthy diets or drugs, such as antibiotics and oral contraceptives. Under these conditions, opportunistic pathogenic microorganisms, such as the fungus Candida albicans, can colonize the small and large intestine. Caprylic acid (octanoic acid), commonly found in foods such as coconut oil, milk fat, etc., is a natural dietary fatty acid which helps maintain a normal intestinal microflora. Studies have shown that dietary caprylic acid helps inhibit the growth of Candida albicans and other opportunistic fungi in both the small and large intestine. At the same time, caprylic acid does not adversely affect the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Dietary zinc, essential for optimum immune function, has been shown to be effective in reducing susceptibility to opportunistic microorganisms, such as Candida, especially in those individuals with compromised immune systems. Studies have described clinical improvement with biotin supplementation of individuals with immune deficiencies associated particularly with carboxylase dysfunction. Vitamins C and E, together with magnesium and calcium, are included in the formulation to offer metabolic support not only for a healthy immune system, particularly involving the thymus, but also for the maintenance of optimal structure and function of the intestine to help successfully resist opportunistic Candida microorganisms.
Brain Memory (Neurological) 60/$45.00
Membranes are the working surfaces of every cell, carrying out the essential functions of cellular communication and hormonal signal transduction. Nerve cells, in particular, depend on healthy membrane function for normal neurotransmitter metabolism and nerve signal transmission. Ginkgo biloba supports the flow of blood and oxygen through capillaries to the brain.An extract of the Chinese club moss, Huperzia serrata, huperzine A has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. It is an effective inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme that degrades acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter important for normal memory and learning function. Huperzine A may help maintain cognitive function that has been degraded by a reduction in the brain’s functional levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.Acetyl-L-carnitine contributes its acetyl group to the production of acetylcholine, the primary neurotransmitter for memory and thought. The enzyme that makes acetylcholine from acetyl groups and choline is choline acetyl transferase. The activity of this important enzyme has a tendency to decline with age, causing low acetylcholine levels which in turn are thought to contribute to the impairment of brain function that is associated with aging. Research has also found that acetyl-L-carnitine is active in optimizing the functioning of cerebral blood flow, as well as of nerve cell membranes.
INDICATIONS Brain Memory may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support neurological functioning and acetylcholine production.
Hair Skin & Nails Plus ( Hair and Skin Support) 100/$35.00
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous biological functions. Foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of collagen fibers - lysyl hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases. As such, vitamin C is essential for normal wound healing and capillary health. It also participates in the biosynthesis of carnitine, serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine. Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chainbreaking antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen. Vitamin A (retinol) is a fat-soluble vitamin essential for vision, growth, reproduction, cell division, and the integrity of the immune system. Minerals play a variety of essential roles throughout the body. Calcium is the principal mineral constituent of bone and is thus essential for healthy bone structure and function. Calcium also participates fundamentally in blood clotting, nerve conduction, and muscle contraction. Magnesium is involved in energy metabolism, and is notably important in the heart, skeletal muscles, and nervous system. Manganese is essential for antioxidant systems in the body, bone growth, fat metabolism, and protein, nucleic acid, and cartilage synthesis. Zinc is important for growth, immune system function, protein synthesis, antioxidant mechanisms, and wound healing. In the human body, iron is present in all cells and has several vital functions -- as a carrier of oxygen to the tissues from the lungs in the form of hemoglobin (Hb), as a facilitator of oxygen use and storage in the muscles as myoglobin, as a transport medium for electrons within the cells in the form of cytochromes, and as an integral part of enzyme reactions in various tissues. Today, scientific research supports horsetail grass’ use as a wound healing agent, particularly for the repair and maintenance of connective tissue. Horsetail grass’ high content of silicon as silica is responsible for these therapeutic effects. Connective tissue, e.g. bone, tendon, cartilage, blood vessels, and skin, contains most of the silicon found in the body. Silicon’s primary role in the maintenance and repair of these tissues is thought to involve their structural framework as silicon appears to be an integral part of their supporting protein and glycosaminoglycan complexes. A deficiency of dietary silicon negatively affects the structure of this supporting matrix, i.e. collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans, more than the mineralization process itself. Phosphatidylserine, a phospholipid nutrient found in lecithin, is active in cell membranes and is the major acidic phospholipid component in the membranes of the brain.
