Natural Factors Natural Factors Vitamin K+D 180 Soft... $24.99
MK-7 from natto bean Vitamin K + D from Natural Factors provides two major fat-soluble vitamins for bone and vascular health: bioactive and highly bioavailable vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), and vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7 [MK-7]) from natto beans. Both vitamins act on calcium and guide the mineral toward where it is needed throughout the body. Uses & Benefits Helps in the normal development and maintenance of bones and teeth Increases calcium absorption and helps guide calcium into bones  Helps build strong bones and teeth Inhibits the calcification of arteries and other soft tissues Supports healthy immune system function Provides double-action support for bone and vascular health Ideal to use alongside calcium supplementation  Feature Summary Vitamin K + D from Natural Factors features vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7), an advanced, fat-soluble form of vitamin K that serves multiple functions in the body. Vitamin K2 plays a critical role in protecting the heart, as well as in building strong bones. As a director of calcium, vitamin K2 guides the mineral toward tissues where it is needed, such as bones, and away from tissues where it could have a negative effect, such as arteries. The highly bioavailable MK-7 from natto beans is the only form of vitamin K2 that offers 24-hour protection in a single daily dose. Other commercially available subtypes of vitamin K2, such as MK-4, only last four to six hours in the body and are required in much larger dosages to be effective.Vitamin D is also a fat-soluble vitamin essential for calcium absorption, playing an important role in the growth and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Ongoing and current research outlines the importance of vitamin D in the prevention of osteoporosis. It helps calcium absorption from the intestines, reduces calcium excretion, and facilitates calcium incorporation into the bones. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the safe, natural, and more biologically active form of vitamin D.Vitamin K + D from Natural Factors provides the ideal ratio of two major fat-soluble vitamins for overall health and support of bones and vascular health. LABEL INFORMATIONMedicinal ingredients Each softgel contains: Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) (MK-7) (natto bean) 120 mcg Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) (lanolin) 1000 IU (25 mcg) Non-medicinal IngredientsMedium chain triglycerides, softgel (gelatin, glycerin, purified water, caramel, titanium dioxide), yellow beeswax, lecithin.

Natural Factors Natural Factors Mixed Vitamin E 400 i... $27.99
  Natural source mixed vitamin E Natural Factors Mixed Vitamin E offers naturally sourced vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol) with mixed tocopherols beta, delta, and gamma for greater benefits. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that offers protection from free radicals and helps in the maintenance of good health. Uses & Benefits Excellent antioxidant Protects cell membranes Supports nerve and muscle function Provides immune support May protect against cardiovascular disease Topically: helps eliminate scarring after skin injury or burn Feature Summary Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that is comprised of a group of eight compounds: four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Vitamin E activity is most often attributed to the d-alpha tocopherol form; however, research shows that beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols also have significant biological activity in the body. Gamma-tocopherol has specifically been shown to exhibit superior anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Natural Factors Mixed Vitamin E contains d-alpha tocopherol, along with beta-, delta-, and gamma- tocopherols. D-alpha tocopherol, the most potent tocopherol, is natural and is more available for use in the body then its synthetic counterpart dl-alpha tocopherol. Mixed vitamin E tocopherols enhance the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity of a single tocopherol vitamin E. Vitamin E is primarily known for its powerful antioxidant benefits. It helps to protect cell membranes against damage caused by free radicals and prevents the oxidation of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. Oxidized LDL cholesterol contributes to the development of atherosclerosis, which inhibits normal circulation of oxygenated blood to the tissues. Vitamin E is also necessary for the structural and functional maintenance of cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscles. Medicinal Ingredients Each softgel contains: Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) 400 IU (268 mg AT) with mixed tocopherols: beta, delta, and gamma Non-Medicinal IngredientsSoftgel (gelatin, glycerin, purified water), soybean oil. Suggested Use Antioxidant for the maintenance of good health. Recommended dose Recommended adult dose: 1–2 softgels daily or as directed by a health care practitioner.

Fatty fish, including salmon, mackerel, and sardines are a great source of omega-3s; however, most of us don't get enough fish in our diet to reach the recommended intake, so a supplement may be a great option.To ensure freshness, Maximum Omega 2000 is closely managed from sea to store.

Uses & Benefits Helps maintain proper muscle function, including the heart muscle Helps maintain the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients Supports tissue formation and the development and maintenance of bones and teeth A factor in the maintenance of good health Bisglycinate form is easy on the stomach and does not cause diarrhea Feature Summary Magnesium Bisglycinate from Natural Factors provides 200 mg of this essential mineral to help support muscle function, including the heart muscle, and relieve muscle cramping. This one-per-day, non-GMO magnesium is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and is provided in a form that is easy on the stomach. Magnesium is an essential nutrient needed as an enzyme cofactor in more than 300 metabolic reactions to help support healthy bones, teeth, muscles, and nerves. We also need magnesium to metabolize nutrients and to produce the body’s main form of energy, adenosine triphosphate (ATP).Diets high in processed foods often lack magnesium, but depletion is possible even on a healthy diet. This is caused by decreased levels of magnesium in soil, excess dietary calcium, and medications affecting absorption and elimination of magnesium. In addition, low stomach acid compromises the absorption of common forms of magnesium. Fortunately, magnesium bisglycinate does not require stomach acid for absorption, is easy on the stomach, and does not cause diarrhea.Magnesium Bisglycinate from Natural Factors is gluten free and contains no artificial colours, preservatives, or sweeteners. Just one serving per day can help restore magnesium levels to relieve muscle cramping and support muscle function and energy metabolism.   Medicinal ingredients Each vegetarian capsule contains:   Magnesium (bisglycinate, oxide) 200 mg Non-medicinal Ingredients Vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant), silica.

Natural Factors Natural Factors N-Acetyl L-Cysteine N... $28.99
Glutathione precursor N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) from Natural Factors is a free form amino acid required by the body to make glutathione. Glutathione is a key antioxidant that is involved in many physiological processes, such as fighting oxidative stress, maintaining a healthy immune system, repairing tissues, and supporting overall health. It also recycles other antioxidants. Uses & Benefits Scavenges free radicals and reduces oxidative stress Supports immune system health Replenishes depleted glutathione stores Aids respiratory health Reduces the frequency of flu-like symptoms in adults over 65 Medicinal Ingredients Each vegetarian capsule contains: N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) 600 mg Non-Medicinal IngredientsVegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant). Suggested Use N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a highly stable form of cysteine and is a precursor in the body to the critical antioxidant glutathione.  It provides antioxidant support and helps to reduce the severity and frequency of influenza-like symptoms in adults over 65 years of age and in those suffering from chronic degenerative diseases Recommended use Recommended adult dose: 1 capsule 2 times daily with meals or as directed by a health care practitioner. Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 6 months. Cautions If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have kidney stones, consult a health care practitioner prior to use. If you are taking antibiotics and/or nitroglycerin, do not use this product. Consult a health care practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen. Keep out of the reach of children. Allergen Statement Contains no artificial colours, preservatives, or sweeteners; no dairy, starch, sugar, wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, corn, egg, fish, shellfish, salt, tree nuts, or GMOs Feature Summary Natural Factors N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a free form amino acid and a vital part of the body’s antioxidant defence system. It is needed for the production of glutathione, a key antioxidant involved in many physiological processes, such as fighting oxidative stress, maintaining a healthy immune system, repairing tissues, cellular detoxification, and supporting overall health. NAC supplementation has been clinically shown to increase the body’s antioxidant capacity and help reduce the severity and frequency of influenza-like symptoms in adults over 65. NAC is also the most stable and readily absorbed form of cysteine. As a free form amino acid, cysteine is one step closer to producing glutathione than when it is consumed as part of a complete protein from food. Oral supplementation with NAC also increases glutathione levels more effectively than supplementing with glutathione itself. This is because glutathione breaks down in the gastrointestinal tract whereas NAC does not. It passes into the bloodstream intact. The 1200 mg per day (600 mg 2 times per day) is supported by clinical research. This is an ideal nutritional supplement for adults who would like to improve their immune system health. NAC is an effective option for anyone with high levels of oxidative stress or depleted glutathione stores.

Uses & Benefits Helps maintain proper muscle function, including the heart muscle Helps maintain the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients Supports tissue formation and the development and maintenance of bones and teeth A factor in the maintenance of good health Bisglycinate form is easy on the stomach and does not cause diarrhea Feature Summary Magnesium Bisglycinate from Natural Factors provides 200 mg of this essential mineral to help support muscle function, including the heart muscle, and relieve muscle cramping. This one-per-day, non-GMO magnesium is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and is provided in a form that is easy on the stomach. Magnesium is an essential nutrient needed as an enzyme cofactor in more than 300 metabolic reactions to help support healthy bones, teeth, muscles, and nerves. We also need magnesium to metabolize nutrients and to produce the body’s main form of energy, adenosine triphosphate (ATP).Diets high in processed foods often lack magnesium, but depletion is possible even on a healthy diet. This is caused by decreased levels of magnesium in soil, excess dietary calcium, and medications affecting absorption and elimination of magnesium. In addition, low stomach acid compromises the absorption of common forms of magnesium. Fortunately, magnesium bisglycinate does not require stomach acid for absorption, is easy on the stomach, and does not cause diarrhea.Magnesium Bisglycinate from Natural Factors is gluten free and contains no artificial colours, preservatives, or sweeteners. Just one serving per day can help restore magnesium levels to relieve muscle cramping and support muscle function and energy metabolism.   Medicinal ingredients Each vegetarian capsule contains:   Magnesium (bisglycinate, oxide) 200 mg Non-medicinal Ingredients Vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant), silica.

Helps in tissue formation and in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. A factor in the maintenance of good health. Magnesium Bisglycinate is easy on the stomach as it does not require stomach acidity to be absorbed, therefore does not cause diarrhea. Recommended dose Recommended adult dose: 1 capsule daily or as directed by a health care practitioner. Cautions Keep out of the reach of children.

Smart Solutions Smart Solutions Thyrosmart Veg Capsules from $16.99
   Smart Solutions Thyrosmart Veg Capsules Colors Free Sugar Free Soy Free Gluten Free No Corn No Shellfish Wheat Or Yeast Free Supports optimal thyroid health Improves conversion of T4 to the more potent T3 Enhances weight loss and metabolism Improves energy Improves sensitivity to temperature The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck below the voice box. The thyroid secretes two hormones that are essential for regulating metabolism: triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). A deficiency in these hormones results in hypothyroidism. Twenty-three percent of the population is currently taking medication for low thyroid function.An additional 30 percent of women have low thyroid function that has not been diagnosed due to the inadequacy of the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test. The range of "normal" for most TSH tests is 0.5 to 5.5 or 6.0 mIU/L. In order to be diagnosed at the doctor's office with low thyroid, your TSH would have to be above 5.5 mIU/L.However, those with a TSH above 2.0 mIU/L will have low thyroid symptoms such as low body temperature, constipation, weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, eyebrow hair loss, depression, recurring infections, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, headaches, reduced libido, infertility, recurring miscarriages, menstrual problems and never-ending menopausal symptoms. Thyrosmart is for both those on thyroid medication and those with a TSH above 2.0 mIU/L. For those on thyroid medication: Thyrosmart works with supplemental thyroid hormones to improve the conversion of T4 to T3Thyrosmart is to be used in conjunction with thyroid medication—do not stop taking your thyroid medicationUse with AdrenasmartTyrosineTyrosine is an amino acid that is used to make thyroxine, a necessary thyroid hormone. Tyrosine assists a sluggish thyroid and can aid the loss of those unwanted pounds.New Sensoril AshwagandhaNew Sensoril Ashwagandha has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine to support the thyroid gland. Studies show that it enhances thyroid function and produces a significant increase in T4 thyroid hormone.Guggal ExtractGuggal extract supports complete thyroid health while enhancing the conversion of T4 hormone to the more potent T3 hormone. Guggal extract and ashwagandha should be used together to support thyroid health.Pantothenic AcidPantothenic acid supports the adrenal glands, increases energy, and helps you better handle stressful situations.IodideIodide (potassium iodide) is essential for the production of thyroid hormones. Now that table salt is often eliminated due to fears of high blood pressure, North Americans often do not get enough potassium iodide to support proper thyroid health.Copper and ManganeseA deficiency in these nutrients can contribute to hypothyroidism. Supplementing with these as well as vitamins A, B2, B3, B6, C, D and E along with the mineral selenium will ensure optimal health of your thyroid gland. MULTIsmart is a delicious powdered multivitamin with minerals that includes all of the above supporting nutrients as part of a complete formula. Combined with THYROsmart, MULTIsmart will provide proper thyroid nutrition. Suggested use: Take 2 capsules with breakfast and dinner or as directed by a health care practitioner.

Preferred Nutrition Preferred Nutrition Berberine 180 Veg... $46.67
Help maintain healthy glucose metabolism and cardiovascular health BERBERINE FOR GLUCOSE METABOLISM AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH A placebo-controlled study provided the first evidence that berberine is a valuable supplement for diabetes and cardiovascular health. Berberine was shown to lower blood glucose, HbA1c (the best measure of long term blood sugar and diabetes control), triglycerides, total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol significantly better than a placebo in people with type 2 diabetes.When type 2 diabetics were given either berberine or the diabetes drug metformin, the berberine was equally effective for blood glucose, HbA1c and insulin. Berberine had an advantage over the drug, though, because it also lowered cholesterol and triglycerides. The study also found that adding the same dose of berberine to the treatment of people whose type 2 diabetes was not being adequately managed by drugs significantly lowered blood glucose, HbA1c, triglycerides, total cholesterol and the harmful LDL cholesterol.A third study compared berberine to two drugs: metformin and rosiglitazone. Berberine’s effectiveness was similar to the drugs. It significantly lowered fasting blood glucose levels, insulin, triglycerides and HbA1c in type 2 diabetics. In vitro, berberine increased the number and responsiveness of insulin receptor cells.A meta-analysis of 27 controlled studies found that berberine was as effective as drugs for diabetes, equal to drugs for lowering total and LDL cholesterol and superior to drugs for lowering triglycerides and raising the heart healthy HDL cholesterol. It also found that berberine is superior to placebo for high blood pressure.Berberine has also been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of arrhythmias and heart failure. Adding berberine to conventional treatment of congestive heart failure has been shown to significantly improve the results and significantly lower the number of deaths.

Platinum Naturals Platinum Naturals Vitamin D3 2500 IU ... from $21.99
Platinum Naturals’ Vitamin D3 Extra Strength Now provides 2500 IU in Medium Chain Triglycerides from coconut oil for easy absorption. Vitamin D3 is essential for a healthy immune system, cardiovascular health, bone health, and many other systems in the body.  Now available in 2500 IU Suspended in MCT oils Supports bone health Supports immune function Superior Nutrient Absorption™  Vitamin D3 is the form that we produce in our skin when we are exposed to sunlight. Studies that compared D2 and D3 have reported that D3 is more biologically active in raising vitamin D levels in the blood, thus providing the health benefits associated with adequate vitamin D levels. Getting enough vitamin D Getting enough vitamin D is a challenge, especially in northern climates. In Canada, we don’t get enough sunlight exposure from October through April to produce vitamin D synthesis in the skin. Evolution has given us the ability to produce vitamin D naturally in our bodies. You can synthesize it just under your skin with sun exposure to your face, arms, hands, or back without sunscreen. However the seasons, geographic latitude, time of day, cloud cover, skin cover, skin colour, smog, and sunscreen affect how much UV rays you absorb and synthesize. It is recommended that all Canadians supplement with vitamin D throughout the year. Preventing illness The latest research indicates that Vitamin D may help strengthen and regulate your immune system, increase bone mineral density, and support cardiovascular health and the list of potential benefits continues to grow. Vitamin D helps both to prevent and reduce the progression of osteoporosis. It may also be effective against bacterial and viral infections. Easy absorption for better results Vitamin D is one of the fat soluble vitamins along with E, A, and K. A base of fat or oil is an ideal carrier to supply vitamin D to the body. Platinum Naturals’ Vitamin D3 Extra Strength provides you with 2,500 IU of vitamin D suspended in medium chain triglycerides (MCT), a form of fatty acid derived from coconut oil that increases the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients.
