CoQ10

  • Supports Cardiovascular Health
  • Supports Healthy Heart Muscles
  • Promotes Cellular Energy
  • Aids in Healthy Dopamine Production
  • Supports Oral Health
  • People with heart failure have been found to have lower levels of CoQ10 in heart muscle cells. Double-blind research suggests that CoQ10 may reduce symptoms related to heart failure, such as shortness of breath, difficulty sleeping, and swelling. CoQ10 is thought to increase energy production in the heart muscle, increasing the strength of the pumping action. Several small trials have also found that CoQ10 may be helpful for certain types of cardiomyopathy.

    Lower levels of CoQ10 have also been observed in people with Parkinson’s disease. Preliminary research has found that increasing CoQ10 may increase levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is thought to be lowered in people with Parkinson’s disease. It has also been suggested that CoQ10 might protect brain cells from damage by free radicals.

    CoQ10 may also help in the treatment and prevention of certain types of gum disease. A small study looked at the topical application of CoQ10 to the periodontal pocket. Ten male periodontitis patients with 30 periodontal pockets were selected. During the first 3 weeks, the patients applied topical CoQ10. There was significant improvement in symptoms.

    Consult your doctor before trying CoQ10. CoQ10 is used in combination with standard treatment, not to replace it. CoQ10 may lower blood sugar levels, so people with diabetes should not use CoQ10 unless under a doctor’s supervision. CoQ10 may also lower blood pressure. The safety of Co q10 in pregnant or nursing women or children has not been established.

    New! from TerraCeutics: TerraVin Natural Anti-aging Supplement with Resveratrol

    March 30, 2010

    Maximum Antioxidant Protection

    Improves & Restores Cardiovascular Function

    Triggers the Longevity Gene

    Made with High Quality Ingredients for Optimized Potency

    TerraCeutics™ TerraVin contains High Potency ingredients including the latest breakthrough in anti-aging supplements, Resveratrol!

    TerraVin Natural Anti-aging formula contains powerful antioxidants, giving benefits to the cardiovascular system and the the immune system. Researchers believe that antioxidants, such as flavonoids or a substance called Resveratrol, found in red wine grapes, have promising heart-healthy benefits. Most bottles of wine on the market contain less than 1mg of Resveratrol in each bottle. The sure way to get the higher dosages of Resveratrol is through high quality nutritional supplements.

    Resveratrol
    The secret to anti-aging lies with Trans-Resveratrol, active form of resveratrol polyphenols found in the skins, seeds, and stems of red wine grapes. Trans-Resveratrol remains active only when sheltered from the sun, light, and oxygen. In this pure, ultra beneficial form, Trans-Resveratrol has been proven in studies to activate the SIRT1 longevity gene and enhance cellular productivity. Trans-Resveratrol is found here and available to you at its peak of potency.

    Activin® Grape Seed Extract
    The ActiPureTM is a patented (patent #5,912,363) natural extraction process. This process involves a hot water extraction of polyphenolic compounds (OPCs) from dry grape seeds. Extracted OPCs are selectively purified using food grade membrane filters and adsorption resins. Active compounds adsorbed on the resin are reversibly removed using an ethanol/water solution. Food grade membrane filters are employed to concentrate the OPCs before drying. The finished product consists of a red powder containing over 85 percent polyphenolics (measured as Gallic acid equivalents) and a potency of greater than 250 Porter units.

    Pine Bark Extract
    Pine bark Extract (Pycnogenol®) has proven to be one of the most potent antioxidants, a property that may explain why pine bark has been used in folk medicine around the world. Pine bark contains complex polyphenols that are among the most potent of any plant. Pine polyphenols are powerful antioxidants, giving benefits to the cardiovascular system and the immune system. They are well known for supporting capillary health. Polyphenols are vigorous free radical scavengers that help the body reduce oxidative stress.

    Pycnogenol® is a combination of some 40 chemicals extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine, Pinus pinaster, which grows in many areas along the Atlantic coast of France and into North Africa. Extracts and teas of pine were commonly used by early Europeans and native Americans, and reportedly are used in Asian medicine as well.

    Scientific studies have also found that Pycnogenol® extends the lifetime of vitamin C in the body, prolonging its beneficial effects as an antioxidant.

    NEW! from ReserveAge Organics… Certified Organic Resveratrol 250mg 60 Veggie Capsules

    March 2, 2010

    ReserveAge Organics, producers of the only Certified Organic Resveratrol supplement, has taken extreme measures to ensure that our supplements provide you with the purest, freshest and most potent source of Resveratrol.

    ReserveAge Organics red-wine grapes, the source of our superior Resveratrol, are produced on a seventh-generation family-held organic biodynamic vineyard in the heart of southern France. The vintner’s traditions, knowledge and commitment to the land have been passed down from father to son, inspiring the present generation to apply the highest organic standards to preserve his inheritance, the vineyards. In this delicate and vibrant growing environment, his heirloom vines, like his father’s, thrive.

    ReserveAge guarantees that our supplements contain the most potent, nutrient-rich source of Resveratrol available. Our extraction facility is but a few minutes drive from the organic vineyard, thereby safeguarding the vitality of our premium organic red-wine grapes. We maintain the highest standards—from the moment the very best grapes are hand-picked and placed into the selection chamber to the short drive to our manufacturing facility. The exclusive relationship we have with the vintner and his family means we will receive a phone call when they anticipate the grape pomace will be ready. Resveratrol, a highly sensitive grape by-product, begins a rapid deterioration when exposed to light and oxygen. Armed with this knowledge, we have our transportation ready and waiting. The organic grape pomace is carefully placed into our refrigerated trucks and taken into a dark, oxygen-free environment. As a result, the harmful and destructive effects of oxidation and light are radically reduced.
