Supplementation (or supplements) is an important part of supporting your body in areas that it is weak. When you lack certain nutrients from the foods you eat, which is very common, taking a supplement that supplies the missing nutrient(s) can bring you back into balance and health. When your body needs repairing, from injury or chronic inflammation, various nutrients or herbs help support your body when it can’t get the job done itself. Supplementation can be the difference between a disease state and health. We should always get our nutrition first from food, but proper supplementation can help you live optimally.

1. Remove

Detox Support Packets

We are being inundated with toxins on a daily basis. Our ability to maintain health in a toxic environment is dependent on our body’s ability to detoxify. There are many factors that affect our ability to detoxify, including chronic exposure to toxins and chronic inflammation, which most of us have. These packets are a great starting point for any detoxification program, for anyone who needs regular detoxification support, for those who want extra help before such things as dental amalgam removal or heavy metal chelation, or for starting a health regimen to address issues such as adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues, or digestive problems.

Inflammation Control

Inflammation is a silent killer. It is our body’s natural response to stress.  When it accumulates and becomes chronic, it begins to create damage inside of our body. Inflammation has been found to be what starts many disease processes including heart disease, cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Chrohn’s disease… just to name a few. Simply put, we don’t want inflammation hanging around.

Inflammatone™ is a combination of herbs, nutrients and proteolytic enzymes for modulating the inflammatory response, supporting the natural clearance of proteins like kinin and fibrin, and for supporting healthy lymphatic drainage. The ingredients in Inflammatone™ provide natural anti-inflammatory effects and protect against oxidative stress.

This powerful formula combines the best of science and enzyme technology for degrading fibrinolytic protein compounds produced during inflammation. The carefully chosen herbs have lipooxygenase (LOX) inhibition, COX 2 inhibition, only mild COX 1 inhibition (to avoid blood thinning and stomach sensitivity), as well as free radical protection.* The proteolytic enzymes not only break down inflammatory proteins including kinins and fibrin but also enhance the breakdown and removal of damaged tissue improving lymphatic drainage. Inflammatone is safe to use in high doses yet powerful enough to provide results with as little as two capsules per day. For best results, this product should be taken on an empty stomach, approximately one hour before meals or several hours after.

Inflammation Control with Curcumin

C3 Curcumin Complex is a powerful antioxidant containing three different bioactive forms of curcuminoids from the spice turmeric. This antioxidant combination has been shown to support organs like the colon, liver and heart by neutralizing damaging free radicals. The emulsifier lecithin (from sunflower) was added to increase absorption.

C3 Curcumin Complex is a patented, unique composition of three bioactive, health-promoting curcuminoids: Curcumin, Bisdemethoxy curcumin, and Demethoxy curcumin. These are the strongest, most protective and best-researched constituents of the herb turmeric. Multiple studies show that this scientifically-extracted combination not only scavenges and neutralizes harmful existing free radicals; it also prevents their formation in the first place. These interactive antioxidants are proven to protect and strengthen vulnerable organs such as the colon, liver and heart. In addition, these standardized substances give the body powerful, natural tools to better control and diminish systemic inflammation.
You can hear Dr. Aggarwal from the Anderson Cancer Institute discussing the latest, extremely-promising curcuminoids research in his Clinical Rounds Interview, and you can go to www.curcuminoids.com for an in-depth, detailed look at all the best research related to curcumin.
Like many other of the most powerful antioxidants, curcuminoids are fat-soluble, so we’ve added lecithin to improve absorption; plus it’s best to take this nutrient with a meal or with our Omega Marine Fish Oil.

Enzyme Support

Plant Digestive Enzyme Formula is a digestive support formula ideal for vegetarians. Use for occasional gas, bloating, irregularity, or a feeling of fullness after eating.

In order to assimilate vitamins and nutrients from our food and supplements, we must be able to digest them properly. Plant Enzyme Digestive Formula is a combination of the most important enzymes for digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Applications include gas and bloating after meals, constipation, and a feeling of fullness after eating only a small quantity of food. Studies show that the foods in the typical American diet are devoid of natural enzymes and do little to help secrete our own production of enzymes. Thus, foods do not get digested well and nutrients from food are poorly absorbed. Poor digestive health can lead to many other disorders including asthma, osteoporosis, food allergies, depression and arthritis. Many health experts agree that regular consumption of enzymes and enzyme rich foods is a key to vibrant health, disease prevention, and anti-aging. Every cell in your body needs enzymes for its biochemical functions, thus a deficiency will accelerate the aging process! Plant Enzyme Digestive Formula does not contain any animal products. This formula is in vegicaps and is suitable for vegetarians.

Probiotics

With probiotic supplements, it’s all about the survival of three major barriers: during the manufacturing process, on the shelf and through stomach acid. Probiotic Synergy™ is formulated to survive these barriers with cutting edge technology that uses the most advanced patented delivery and shelf stability technology available to ensure maximum potency and viability. It is this Probiospheres tableting technology and shape that protects fragile probiotic organisms from harsh stomach acid and delivers the highest number of live organisms to the intestinal tract. The end result—higher potency, superior delivery, and minimal waste.

Probiotic Synergy™ uses the most advanced patented delivery and shelf stability technology available to ensure maximum potency and viability.  This is achieved using the latest techniques designed to protect fragile probiotic organisms from harsh stomach acid and deliver the highest number of live organisms to the intestinal tract.

With probiotics, it’s all about survival.  Probiotic organisms must survive three critical barriers to be of benefit to the consumer – the manufacturing process, time on the shelf, and most importantly the transit through the acidic environment of the stomach.  Probiotic Synergy™ is formulated to handle all of the above, presented in moisture-resistant BIO-tract Probiospheres® that enhance stability and the ultimate delivery of probiotic organisms to the intestinal tract. This results in high levels of protected bacteria optimally released throughout the entire digestive tract.

Regular consumption of probiotics may improve immune response and mucin production, as well as alleviate symptoms associated with diarrhea, constipation, dysbiosis, bacterial infections, and yeast overgrowth. Probiotics should also be considered during or after use of antibiotics.

Amino Acids

BCAA Powder combines the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA)- leucine, isoleucine, and valine- along with the amino acid, L-glutamine for a synergistic effect in building muscle tissue and supporting the immune system. BCAAs are unique in that they are a direct source of energy for skeletal muscles while also serving as intermediates in the ATP-producing citric acid cycle. They stimulate the building of protein in muscle, help reduce muscle breakdown during exercise, and regulate protein metabolism throughout the body. BCAA Powder has a great-tasting, natural orange flavor. This product is free of sucrose, fructose and artificial sweeteners, and is sweetened with the natural herb stevia. Made with non-GMO ingredients.

BCAAs stimulate lean muscle synthesis even in the absence of resistance training, making them an effective raw material for lean tissue maintenance in athletes as well as populations who are unable to exercise, but are at risk for muscle loss. BCAA Powder may be beneficial for: Sports nutrition – enhancing muscle building and recovery in athletes Sarcopenia – facilitating muscle tissue maintenance in aging populations Post-operative and traumatic injury recovery – reducing muscle mass catabolism Cachexia – attenuating muscle wasting BCAA Powder can be taken pre, peri, or post workout. Consider adding BCAA Powder to either PaleoMeal® or Whey Cool™, or taking along with food to increase total BCAA levels as well as protein synthesis.

Better than Soy
Whey protein is nature’s richest source of biologically active protein. Unlike soy protein, which is low in the amino acid methionine, whey protein contains all the amino acids the body needs in the best balance yet discovered in any food. Whey protein is derived from milk. Lactase enzyme was added to aid in the digestion of the small amount of lactose in this product. Those who are sensitive to milk products may be able to tolerate this whey protein, however, if you are allergic to milk and milk products, use PaleoMeal under the guidance of your health care practitioner.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: If I have allergies to soy can I take phosphatidyl choline found in your Phosphatidyl choline powder, softgels and your PaleoMeal™?

A: Phosphatidyl choline is a phospholipid and contains no protein parts from soy. Proteins are the part of the food that most people are allergic to. Those very sensitive to soy should try phosphatidyl choline in small doses at first to see if they tolerate the product.

Q: I understand only the Vanilla PaleoMeal™ is unsweetened. What sweeteners are used in the other PaleoMeal™ products?

A: The “Science First” philosophy of Designs for Health dictates that we use no artificial sweeteners such as sucralose, saccharine, or Nutrasweet, as well as not use natural sweeteners like sucrose and fructose which negatively impact metabolic syndrome and other health conditions. In the sweetened PaleoMeal™ products we use only beneficial sweeteners like xylitol and stevia. Our natural flavors DO NOT contain MSG.

Q: Will the xylitol or stevia have any effect on insulin?

A: No
