ADK 5 • BioTE — 90 capsules — $28
Required for the normal development, growth and mainience of the bones.
Has been shown to support bone remodeling, which is our body’s way of removing old or weakened bone in order to make room for new, stronger bone. This remodeling process is critical in the repair process of the bone matrix in order to retain bone density. Also plays a role in stimulating bone building cells to secrete proteins that are required for bone remodeling.
Fat-soluble vitamin essential for maintaining normal calcium metabolism.
Has been shown to support calcium absorption in the stomach and helps maintain adequate blood levels of calcium and phosphate to enable normal mineralization of bone. Also needed for proper bone growth and remodeling. Without sufficient Vitamin D, bone can become thin, brittle or misshapen.
Has been shown to play an essential role in our health.
Vitamin K2 plays an essential role in bone metabolism. It helps guide calcium toward the areas of the body where it is needed and away from areas where it could have a negative effect.
ADK 10 • BioTE — 90 capsules — $28
BioTE® ADK 10 has a higher dose of D3.
DIM • BioTE — 60 capsules — $32
Found in certain vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale and cauliflower, DIM can be beneficial for breast, uterine, cervical, and prostate health. DIM is not a plant estrogen or an estrogen mimic, like soy isoflavones, but rather an estrogen balancer. DIM stimulates more efficient metabolism of estrogen.
To obtain the therapeutic levels of DIM from food alone, you would have to consume large quantities of uncooked vegetables—up to two pounds per day.
DIM has numerous health benefits for both men and women and is one of the most important nutrients your body needs to help metabolize your testosterone and estrogen to beneficial byproducts that promote good health.
DIM is a natural aromatize inhibitor. This makes a great mild alternative for those men who are only converting a moderate amount of their testosterone to estrogen. By keeping a male’s estrogen level optimized, you can reduce his risk for atherosclerosis. DIM promotes healthier aging for those males going through andropause who are mild to moderate aromatizers (convert too much of their testosterone to estrogen).
DIM increases free testosterone in men and women. As a result, it has the potential to make your pellet therapy last longer. This means you will require fewer pellet insertions, realizing long-term cost savings, without sacrificing any benefits.
This supplement is intended to support optimal absorption of nutritive ingredients. When you take the BioTE DIM supplement, food may be absorbed better by the digestive system and the increased nutrition can impact the effectiveness of many biological systems throughout the body. DIM is especially known for helping women optimize estrogen metabolism and can have a hormone stabilization effect that with bio-identical hormone replacement pellet therapy can be life-changing.
FloraSport 20B Probiotic • Thorne — 30 capsules — $23
The word probiotic means “for life”. Probiotics or the “good bacteria” comprise approximately four pounds of our body weight. The human digestive system contains approximately 3.3 million genes from more than 1000 species—about 150 times the 20-25,000 genes in the human genome. The “good bacteria cells” outnumber the human cells 10:1.
Although we tend to think of bacteria as harmful “germs”, many bacteria actually help the body function properly. Probiotics have been shown to aide a variety of gastrointestinal issues including immune system support.
Iodine PLUS • BioTE — 180 capsules — $30
Iodine Complex aids in natural hormone production and balance.
Iodine has been well established as an essential trace elemental that is necessary for proper thyroid function.
BioTe Iodine PLUS provides both Iodine and Iodide as certain glands and tissues have specific affinity for the different iodines such as thyroid and brain using iodide while breast, prostate, and stomach using mainly iodine.
In addition to providing many benefits with iodine/iodide, BioTE® Iodine PLUS is specifically formulated to contain two synergistic nutrients, Zinc and Selenium.
Meriva 500-SF • Thorne — 60 capsules — $23
Meriva 500-SF is a unique patented curcumin product. For centuries, people throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin, the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry). Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that has been shown to offer numerous health benefits.
Meriva 500-SF provides nutritional benefits for
- Muscle and tendon support
- Occasional aches and soreness
- Joint health
- Sports performance
- Hormone Balance
- the most clinically studied curcumin formulation for relief of occasional aches and soreness due to inflammation
- Curcumin enhances the activity of the COMT enzyme that helps metabolize estrogen via methylation
- Protects cells from DNA damage from improper estrogen metabolism
- Phytosome technology ensures more efficient absorption
- Soy-free formula
Methyl-Guard PLUS • Thorne — 90 capsules — $30
What do these adverse health conditions have in common?
The answer…poor methylation!
- Provides 5 essential methylation nutrients in a concentrated and comprehensive formula
- Methylfolate (5-MTHF), active B6, active B2, active methyl B12 and betaine
- Helps support proper estrogen metabolation
- Helps support healthy homocysteine levels
Methylation is an essential and vital biochemical process within the human body that is involved in a large number of biochemical pathways involving neurotransmitters, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health, bone health, and redox balance.
Omega 3 • BioTE — 60 capsules — $20
An important factor in maintaining healthy bodily functions.
Has been shown to aid in muscle activity, blood clotting prevention, digestion, brain health, fertility, and cell division and growth. Commonly used supplements that contain Omega 3 include fish oil (which provides EPA and DHA) and flaxseed oil (which provides ALA)
Studies show that Omega 3 is beneficial to the heart, eyes, brain and arthritis relief.
Research shows that Omega 3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, arthritis, and heart disease. Omega 3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function. Symptoms of Omega 3 fatty acid deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.
This supplement is reported to support cardiovascular health. BioTE Omega 3 also has shown to help men and women lower their incidence of depression, rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease.
Omega 30 Plus • BioTE — 60 capsules — $34
Omega 30 Plus is a 100% natural supplement that not only contains health-promoting omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA (the two essential fatty acids found in most ordinary fish oil products), but also a total of 30 essential fatty acids. This diverse combination of essential fatty acids makes Omega 30 Plus unique. Only a very small dose is required for it to be effective, and it comes in small easy-to-swallow soft-gel caps.
Studies have shown that Omega 30 Plus enables you to return to the healthy lifestyle you enjoyed prior to the limiting effects of joint pain and inflammation.
Research has shown Omega 30 plus is critical to joint health, respiratory health, cardiovascular health, HDL and triglyceride levels.
Whole Food Multi • BioTE — 90 capsules — $48
This whole food multivitamin is a unique blend of 12 organic fruits and vegetables that are Non-GMO and gluten free. The once daily capsule dosing is convenient and provides 100% of the recommended daily allowances for most of the vitamins and minerals the body needs.
So why do we need to take a multivitamin?
- Food processing depletes the fruits and vegetables of nutrients
- Lack of crop rotation
- Fruits and vegetables don’t ripen on the vine
- Nutrient depletion from prescription mediations
- Most Americans don’t eat the recommended six to eight servings of fruits and vegetables.
