Main Products
Setria Glutathione
A small peptide comprised of three common amino acids, glutathione is one of the most important molecules in the body for it’s role in protecting cells from the damaging effects of toxins and oxidative stress. When provided proper nutrition, the body creates it’s own glutathione. However, many individuals are low in glutathione due to poor lifestyle choices including an excessive intake of processed foods, smoking and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol. The use of prescription drugs, stress, and even advancing age can also work to reduce glutathione levels in the body.

As a dietary supplement, glutathione has been the subject of debate for years as to whether it is effective at raising glutathione levels when taken orally. Setria Glutathione has been clinically studied to be an absorbable form.

An ultra pure, stable form of reduced glutathione, Setria is a vegetarian and allergen-free ingredient manufactured through a patented fermentation process.

Cognizin Citicoline
Cognizin is a clinically supported, branded form of citicoline that helps supply the nutrition the human brain needs to stay alert and focused throughout the day.* Citicoline is often called a “brain nutrient” because it increases levels of several important neurotransmitters that regulate memory and cognitive function.

Cognizin Citicoline is an ingredient backed by numerous scientific studies to support claims of improved attention, recall and focus.* Cognizin is a pure, vegetarian, allergen-free form of citicoline designed to provide nutritional support to help combat the normal effects of aging on cognition.*

Pantesin Pantethine
Pantesin is a branded form of Pantethine, a derivative of vitamin B-5, that helps the body maintain a healthy cholesterol ratio.* Pantesin Pantethine works by supporting the healthy metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol while raising HDL (good) cholesterol.*

Backed by more than 35 years of research supporting Pantesin’s effectiveness in high-risk individuals, a recently completed study validates the ingredients effectiveness for improving blood lipid profiles even in low to moderate risk individuals for cardiovascular disease (CVD). This new research performed on North American subjects also showed that Pantesin was effective over and above the effects of a TLC (therapeutic lifestyle changes) Diet. An ingredient that works at the cellular level, enhancing enzyme and metabolic activity, Pantesin is pure, vegetarian and allergen-free.*
