This unique sustained-release product provides improved long-term blood levels of L-arginine. Perfusia-SR increases nitric oxide levels in endothelial cells, thus increasing vasodilation while inhibiting platelet and monocyte adhesiveness. Inadequate nitric oxide production and endothelial dysfunction are present in many clinical conditions, including coronary artery disease, hypertension, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, as well as Alzheimer and vascular dementias. Slowly absorbed over a 12-hour period, Perfusia-SR maintains sustained blood levels of arginine with twice-daily dosing.
The process of aging is associated with increased oxidative activity and decreased levels of reduced glutathione. This appears to be especially prominent in individuals experiencing a decline in cognitive function. Conversely, those living over 100 years tend to have higher glutathione reductase activity. Patent-pending Glutathione-SR from Thorne Research represents a breakthrough in glutathione supplementation. Its sustained release properties protect it from break down by stomach acid and digestive enzymes.
Glucosamine & Chondroitin
For years, Thorne has carried glucosamine sulfate, as well as our multi-ingredient AR-Encap, to help optimize collagen repair, and improve joint structure and function. Some practitioners have found the addition of chondroitin sulfate can further help this process in some patients. We are pleased to offer this combination as an option for those wishing to use both of these health-promoting substances.
Undecyclenic acid, a natural component of human sweat, is a fatty acid with anti-Candida activity, and is derived commercially from castor bean oil. A Thorne innovation, Formula SF722 aids in the establishment of a healthy gut flora, and has been one of our best selling products for almost two decades.
Vitamin D is essential for maintaing normal calcium balance and healthy bone density. In addition to the positive effect of vitamin D on maintaining bone density, a recent study found vitamin D supplementation actually reduces the risk of falling in the elderly, providing another preventive mechanism for vitamin D’s protective effect on bone health. Two high-potency vitamin D options are offered-1,000 and 5,000 IU per capsule. The ideal dosage for each patient depends on a number of factors. For example, lack of sun exposure, as experienced by people in northern l+atitudes and the elderly, increases the need for vitamin D.

Optimal Whole C is the first true whole food, high potency dose Vitamin C product ever developed. This scientifically advanced supplement drastically exceeds industry standards and contains the highest quality unprocessed fruits and fruit juices from the Ecuadorian tropical rainforests. Each delicious Whole C chewable contains 750 milligrams of whole food, yielding 200 milligrams of whole food Vitamin C. Optimal Whole C contains no synthetic ingredients and is not processed to separate any of the whole food constituents â€“ thereby providing the safest, most natural, and nutrient rich supplement of Vitamin C available.
People have been taking Vitamin C supplements for years. When a cold strikes, Vitamin C is usually the first form of ammunition individuals turn to. However, what most people don’t know is, the supplements they are taking to rid themselves of a simple cold may be deadly!
If you look on the label of any Vitamin C product on the market today, you will most likely see ascorbic acid as one of the main ingredients. Contrary to what most health and supplement companies want you to believe, ascorbic acid is not Vitamin C. Rather, it is only a small fraction of the factors needed to create a whole Vitamin C formula. Without the other necessary ingredients, Vitamin C is incomplete and forces the body to use its own reserves to complete the Vitamin C complex. This actually depletes Vitamin C from the body and can cause fatal effects!
Numerous research studies have shown the damaging effects that these synthetic Vitamin C supplements have on the body. In one study, cited in a Los Angeles Times article, the research showed that consuming Vitamin C supplements in the form of ascorbic acid may actually lead to heart disease. What the article failed to point out, however, is the true Vitamin C supplements are not harmful to your health. On the contrary, in its whole food form, Vitamin C is very beneficial as an antioxidant, assists in collagen formation, boosts the immune system, and is necessary in the synthesis of stress hormones.
Fortunately, you are no longer restricted to these inferior Vitamin C supplements with harmful side effects. Optimal Whole C, the first true whole food Vitamin C product, has now been created. And, with this revolutionary new formula, you can now receive all the benefits Vitamin C has to offer via the safest, most complete, and scientifically advanced whole food Vitamin C supplement ever developed.

This Nutritional Yeast is for vegetarians, athletes, women, or anyone who needs a rich, natural source of the complete B vitamin complex and a good, vegan protein source. This is not only the most dense form of whole food vitamin B found, but this product is also top on the list because it is half protein, meaning it supplies a high quality protein source with a most highly digestible amino acid blend. Along with providing B vitamins and protein in the most absorbable, most effective form, this nutritional yeast is a good source of other vitamins and minerals. This supplement also supplies significant amounts of iron, choline and many other minerals. Naturally low in calories, Optimal B also adds dietary fiber and can be used as a dairy replacement in the vegetarian diet.
Studies show that few people consume adequate amounts of vitamin B. Vegetarians are particularly prone to vitamin B deficiencies, as are dieters and people who consume junk foods and high-fat and high-sugar diets. Most consumers are unaware that the vitamin B complex consists of eight water-soluble vitamins. However, the majority of vitamin B supplements on the market today are synthetically made and contain large excesses of some B vitamins and with small amounts of others, making them ineffective.
Optimal Whole B is a mild, nutty-flavored nutritional yeast, designed to provide a rich source of the entire Vitamin B complex. More concentrated than Brewer’s yeast, Optimal Whole B supplies B vitamins in a form that is absorbed up to 400 times more than synthetic Vitamin B supplements.
Whole B has many benefits other than healthy skin and hair. Other benefits include proper nerve function, reducing the effects of stress and aging, converting fat, carbohydrates and protein to energy, and is essential to achieving weight loss and maintaining vitality.

Optimal OxyPure alkalinizes the body and enhances oxygen delivery. Creating an oxygenated internal environment allows the body to better fight infections and viruses as well as eliminates toxins. It also helps the body burn fat and produce energy.
Factors that limit the supply of oxygen to the body
Studies show that earth’s atmosphere-meaning the air we breathe-doesn’t contain as much available oxygen as it once did. Once, our air was made up of 40% oxygen. Now, due to excess carbon dioxide and pollutants, air is only about 20% oxygen.
According to research, we have become a nation of shallow-breathers as a result of our fast-paced and stress-filled schedules. Sedentary lifestyles are becoming quite common. Because we don’t exercise, we are not forcing our lungs to expand and take in additional oxygen. Our inactive lifestyle is creating an acidic environment.
Since raw foods contain more oxygen, the fact that we eat mostly cooked/processed foods further cuts into oxygen supply. Cooked foods and environmental toxins also cause our systems to become more acidic, and thus, more prone to disease.
With an insufficient supply of life-giving oxygen and with high acidity, the bloodstream fills up with toxins and carbon dioxide. When the body is oxygen-starved and acidic, it does a very poor job of fighting infections and warding off viruses. In fact, bacteria and viruses grow and thrive in an anaerobic-or, in other words, in a system that is devoid of oxygen.
When the body is not in an alkaline state and does not have the oxygen it needs, our nutrient delivery is compromised and our metabolism slows down. We don’t break our foods down properly or use fat stores for energy.
Enhancing oxygen delivery and alkalizing the system by using OxyPure from Optimal Health Systems allows the body to fight infections, to eliminate toxins and to have the combustion (fat-burning) and energy-producing benefits that come from the life-giving chemicalâ€”oxygen.
One bottle contains: 2 fluid ounces
Recommended Usage: 8 drops of OxyPure in 4 ounces of water for internal use; 1 drop of OxyPure to 20 drops of water for topical application or as directed by a health professional. Note: Always dilute with water before use.

OsteoPlus is the first and only product on the market to combine the two most necessary and proven ingredients for bone health â€“ patented, amino acid chelated calcium and Ipriflavone (OstivoneTM). The benefits of calcium in halting and preventing further bone loss have long been recognized. And, the amino acid chelated form of calcium included in OsteoPlus is proven to be absorbed better than any other form of calcium. Amino acid chelated calcium is also far less toxic than any other form of calcium. This superior form of calcium is combined with Ipriflavone, a bioflavonoid, which is the only non-hormonal nutrient shown to successfully combat osteoporosis by increasing bone mineral density and enhancing calcium utilization. No other formula boosts bone health like OsteoPlus.
Sedentary lifestyles and lack of load-bearing exercise (strength training), along with diminished amounts of calcium in foods today and the consumption of carbonated drinks, laxatives, white flour and other mineral-depleting substances are just some of the factors that have combined to make osteoporosis the fastest rising disease in America.
Osteoporosisâ€”characterized by brittling and weakening of the bonesâ€”is the third-leading cause of death in America. Every year, over 40,000 women die from osteoporosis-related fractures. For those who survive, fractures are often crippling, destroying quality of life and taking away the ability to care for themselves.
Once thought to be a “women-only” disease, osteoporosis also strikes men and even teenagers. One in eight men and one in two women will sustain a fracture because of osteoporosis; and the costs and devastating results of this disease are rising astronomically.
The public has been led to believe that taking TumsTM or other forms of calcium is enough. This is not the case. Calcium can only stop bone loss; it can’t help reverse it. Besides, studies show many forms of calcium are not adequately absorbed, so aren’t used by the body at all.
OsteoPlus from Optimal Health Systems contains ingredients proven to be absorbed and to actually be used by the body to rebuild and strengthen bone. OsteoPlus contains the safe, highly effective amino acid chelated form of calcium, as well as Ipriflavone (OstivoneTM) a bioflavonoid that is the ONLY non-hormonal substance ever proven to rebuild bone density. Ostivone is backed by countless studies showing its benefits for bone health and for successfully combating osteoporosis. OsteoPlus also contains the amazing Opti-Blend Delivery System to ensure that nutrients are delivered to the sites where they can be used by the body.
Nothing boosts bone health like OsteoPlus.

Opti-Mass is a choice product in the athletic realm to build muscle mass and prevents muscles from wasting away during stress and trauma.
Science has proven that Creatine, Glutamine and Brach Chain Amino Acids (Valine, Leucine, and Isoleucine) are the most important nutrients needed for muscle growth. Opti-Mass is the only muscle building formula on the market that contains a patented form of both Creatine and Glutamine. This patented form of Creatine is bound to magnesium for optimal absorption and utilization in the muscle without hindering performance levels in endurance athletes. The patented form of Glutamine, the only amino acid that carries two nitrogen atoms, is bound to another amino acid and magnesium making it more effective than L-Glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscles, where it is readily available when needed to make skeletal muscle proteins. It also promotes immune function and protects the gastrointestinal lining, making this amazing product more than a muscle builder. Along with these powerful patented ingredients, Branch Chain Amino Acids have been added to prevent muscles from wasting away during times of stress and trauma and enhance muscle metabolism.
Opti-Mass provides the most powerful nutrients needed for muscle growth in a form that nature intended amino acid chelates. Clinical trials have proven that the ingredients in Opti-Mass enhance the body’s ability to generate and regenerate the ATP needed to provide the energy needed for muscular performance and are much more effective then the cheap forms, such as Creatine monohydrates and L-Glutamine. Opti-Mass patented chelated form of Creatine is protected from the stomach’s acid thereby preventing the preduction of creatinine. The ingredients in Opti-Mass are more bioavailable than if these ingredients were taken separately and are retained in the body’s tissues better. Opti-Mass is the product of choice of many professional athletes.
The benefits of the ingredients used in Opti-Mass to prevent muscle wasting during times of stress and trauma, to improve the immune system, and to protect the gastrointestinal wall has made this product an excellent choice in the care of individuals diagnosed with cancer or AIDS or for those undergoing surgery.

Antioxidant Blend for Neutralizing Many Free Radicals
Free radicals are all around us-in the water we drink and the air we breathe-and the damage they cause is monumental. Over 60 diseases have been linked to these highly reactive molecules that bombard the cell walls and leave the body prone to cancer, heart disease, arthritis, macular degeneration and to the many evidences of aging-from wrinkles to dementia.
Research proves that certain nutrients – known as antioxidants – ward off the effects of free radicals, thereby helping to prevent cell and tissue damage. Yet, in formulating antioxidant supplements, some companies ignore a critical fact. Since the human body is composed of many kinds of tissues, which are attacked by many kinds of free radicals, more than one kind of antioxidant is needed to ward off the harmful effects.
No other antioxidant supplement on the market takes the total approach and provides the body with broad spectrum protection like Opti-Force does. Opti-Force is a total antioxidant that includes the most powerful combination of many different antioxidant nutrients. These nutrients include: proanthocyanidins from pine bark, grape seed and grape skin; curcuminoids from turmeric; and catechins from green tree extract; as well as the vitamins A, C, and E that are well-known for their antioxidant properties and the various minerals and other co-factors that ensure delivery of these nutrients so they can be used in the body. Opti-Force, the most complete antioxidant formula on the market, truly has the force you need for optimal antioxidant benefits.

Organic Source of Iron
Iron is a trace mineral that is essential for health, with its most important function being the production of red blood cells. The iron-rich pigment in blood is what binds life-supporting oxygen and transports it to tissues. Without iron, the immune system is impaired since bacteria-killing white blood cells are dependent on iron. Iron is also required for the proper function of the nervous system and the production of neurotransmitters; and it is an iron-dependent enzyme that helps the liver destroy toxic chemicals and waste products.
It has been estimated that as many as 1 billion people are deficient in this important mineral. As many as 60% of the U.S. population may not get enough iron. Iron deficiency is most common among teenagers, elderly, pregnant or lactating women, those who consume a “junk food” diet, and anyone with a liver disorder.
Early symptoms of iron deficiency include fatigue, decreased alertness, diminished endurance, dizziness and rapid heartbeat. Frequent colds, chronic infections, and poor digestion are also signs of iron deficiency. Chronic deficiency leads to anemia.
While iron deficiency has been called the most prevalent nutritional problem worldwide, many people shy away from iron supplementation due to horror stories promulgated by the media. However, these stories fail to reveal the whole truth. Supplemental iron is necessary, and is perfectly safe when taken in a form that is absorbed by the body. Optimal Iron contains Ferrochel – the only patented form of iron in a blend proven to be assimilated by the body up to 400% more than other iron supplements. This means that, rather than building up as a toxin in the body, Optimal Iron is effectively used by the body to enhance health.
Each capsule contains:
Iron (as amino acid chelate) 20 mg, Brewers Yeast 10 mg, Acerola Cherry 10 mg, Wheat Germ 10 mg, Carrot Powder 10 mg, Opti-Blend Delivery System 5 mg, Folate (as folic acid) 200 mcg, Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) 6 mcg.
Optimal Fruit and Veggie Complete
6 Servings of 100% RAW Fruits and Vegetables in Every Serving
Research shows that eating 5 or more fruits and vegetables a day plays an important role in preventing these diseases and conditions of ill heath. Whole food fruits and vegetables contain essential nutrients, especially antioxidants; that improve our resistance to disease, protect our cells from damaging effects of free radicals, and boost our immune system. Good nutrition is vital to optimal health and especially important for children and adolescents for healthy growth and development.
According to the USDA Food Guide Pyramid, Americans are recommended to consume 3 to 5 servings of fruits and 2 to 4 servings of vegetables daily. The Harvard School of Public Health stated that the average American consumes only 3 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. What is even more alarming is that the USDA reported that over half of all elementary students eat no fruit on any given day and 3 out of 10 students eat less than one serving of vegetables a day.
Optimal Health Systems has just formulated Fruit and Veggie Complete – a 100% raw whole food fruit and vegetable powder formulated to be of the highest nutrient value possible. All the ingredients were picked at their peak ripeness and then put through a specialized low-temperature, freeze-drying process that same day. This unique process of transforming the foods into a powder form retains all of its enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. Other forms of processing destroy these vital nutrients.
The ORAC unit of this product is strictly from the original fruits and vegetables. Synthetic vitamins, extracts and herbs were not added to “boost” the number. According to the USDA, the average person consumes about 1200 ORAC units per day. The USDA has also concluded that we need 3000 to 5000 ORAC units per day to have a significant impact for antioxidant protection. Just one scoop of Fruit and Veggie Complete provides 3000 ORAC units and 6 servings of fruits and vegetables. The ORAC unit of this product is strictly from the original fruits and vegetables.

Optimal Fat & Sugar
Fat Digestion and Sugar Metabolic Formula
Heart disease – the number one killer of Americans today – has been directly linked to the intake of processed fats and high-sugar diets. Other afflictions such as obesity, diabetes, hypoglycemia, and even certain cancers are also often the result of the body’s inability to metabolize the processed fats and sugars that are so prevalent in the average American’s diet.
Optimal Fat/Sugar Formula helps combat these disorders by utilizing a unique blend of the most powerful ingredients proven to help the body regulate blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol. One such ingredient included in Optimal Fat/Sugar is lipase. Lipase is necessary to break down fat and make it useable as energy in the body. Without lipase, ingested fat is stored as excess body fat and can cause plaque buildup on the walls of blood vessels. Optimal Fat/Sugar also contains chromium to help balance blood sugar. These and other highly effective ingredients make Optimal Fat/Sugar a powerful weapon in the battle against heart disease, obesity, blood sugar imbalance, and diabetes.

Lipase 175 LU, Garlic (deodorized) (bulb) 100 mg, Natural source Vitamin E (from rice bran oil) 25 mg, Turmeric (root) 20 mg, Chromium (as amino acid chelate) 25 mcg, Selenium (as amino acid complex) 15 mcg, Opti-Blend Delivery System 5 mg

Total Immune Support & Boost Formula
Now, for the first time ever, all the most powerful immune boosting ingredients known to mankind have been combined into one revolutionary product, Optimal Defense! As sickness and disease continue to spread throughout the world, health companies have desperately tried to come up with a solution by creating a whole new wave of immune products. Optimal Defense is the first supplement to include the most powerful and effective of these immune-supporting ingredients in one formula. This amazing formula also contains the patented Opti-Blend Delivery System to deliver these remarkable ingredients to the body better than they have ever been delivered before.
According to a recent report presented to the U.S. Senate, infectious diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide and the third largest cause of death among Americans. Each year, more than 13 million people die from infectious disease. In addition, during just the next hour, infectious disease will end another 1,500 lives!
Our immune system is constantly being bombarded by infectious diseases every day. Usually, we can withstand these bombardments, but when we are overly stressed, are not consuming the proper foods, or are frequently exposed to disease, our immune system is weakened. This allows the flu, colds, and other highly contagious disorders to invade our bodies. In order to prevent these diseases from infecting us, it is necessary to give our immune system a boost.
In the last few years, health companies have created numerous products to help in this regard. These immune boosting supplements have consisted mainly of one powerful ingredient. Optimal Defense, on the other hand, contains all of the most powerful ingredients available, thereby providing complete immune support. Give your immune system the boost it needs with Optimal Defense!

Optimal Cleanse & Repair
Bowel Detoxification and Digestive Lining Support
Opti-Cleanse and Repair is a unique blend of fibers, herbs and minerals to promote peristaltic action and promote the encapsulation of toxins and metals in a fiber casing to ensure safe removal. This cleansing formula has just been improved by the addition of licorice root to help repair and protect the lining of the digestive tract.
Safe and Effective Cleansing
This revolutionary formula cleanses the intestines and removes unwanted toxins and metals from the body through a different transport system than most fiber detoxification products. Most formulas use a fiber base to push Etoxins and metals out of the system. Although this can be somewhat effective, you risk the danger of having the toxins and metals redeposit into other tissues before they are eliminated from the body.
Opti-Cleanse and Repair effectively moves these toxins by a double-pronged approach.
- Encapsulate toxins: This product utilizes a special blend of non-digestible and functional fibers that are used to surround the metal toxins. A blend of cellulose and proprietary hemiseb plant enzymes are used to partially digest the fibers to form a fiber gel matrix. This matrix them enshroud the toxins and transport them safely out of the body without side-effects.
- Chelate and Neutralize toxins: Two unique binding nutrients have been added to this formula to chelate and neutralize toxins; Chlorella and Magnesium Glycyl Glutamine. Chlorellaâ€™s cellular wall has the ability to chelate (bind) with heavy metals, pesticides, and toxins and carry these substances out of the body. Enzymes within this formula pre-digest this nutrient to its most active form, creating maximal results not found with other products. Another powerful ingredient in Opti-Cleanse and Repair is Glutamine. With the unique structure of being the only amino acid to carry nitrogen, this stabilized form is the ultimate nutrient for detoxification yielding beneficial effects on the intestinal mucosa and creating metabolic fuel for the small intestine.
Repair of the Gastrointestinal Lining
The exposure of the gastrointestinal lining from stress, poor dietary habits, or from the growth of harmful bacteria can cause pain, discomfort, and even ulcerations. Many remedies on the market cause a number of unpleasant side effects, including liver damage, dizziness, allergies, depression, headaches, hair loss and osteoporosis. Opti-Cleanse and Repair provides a welcomed support for healing by using Licorice root to protect against ulcer formation, aid in the healing of ulcers and prevent recurrent ulcerations.

Powerful Nutrients for Joint Support and Rebuilding
For individuals suffering from on-going pain and discomfort, just covering the symptoms by taking anti-inflammatories and over-the-counter pain medications is not the solution.

Optimal Chronic does just that by utilizing a powerful combination of ingredients, including: glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine HCL, and chondroitin sulfate for joint repair; yucca for chronic joint pain; MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane), a form of organic nutritional sulfur which aids the body in building flexible healthy cells; manganese , for regenerating discs; and our exclusive Opti-Blend Delivery System, a unique blend of enzymes and minerals for optimal nutrient delivery.

A unique product designed to ensure even the pickiest youngsters will get their daily vitamin C. Câ€¢Stix take the shape a very popular candy. Each stick contains 150% of the daily RDA of vitamin C, instead of a straw full of sugar. Best of all, it is made from completely natural whole food sources-straight from the tropical rainforests of Central and South America.
The vitamin C in Câ€¢Stix is derived entirely from acerola cherries, oranges, black currants and grapefruits. Majority of vitamin C sold today, is made from synthetic ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is made by mixing corn starch and hydrochloric acid together in a laboratory. Numerous studies have proven the ill effects that synthetic vitamin C may have on the body. However, in its whole food form, vitamin C is very beneficial as an antioxidant, assists in collagen formation, boosts the immune system, and is necessary in the synthesis of stress hormones.
Each stick contains:
Sugars (from fructose) 0.7 mg, Vitamin C (from acerola cherry fruit, black currant fruit, orange fruit, and grapefruit juice) 100 mg, Citrus Bioflavonoids 25 mg
Adrena Boost is an exclusive blend of nutrients. Panax Ginseng is the key nutrient in this formula, supporting the adrenals without the use of glandulars. Studies have shown that this nutrient increases physical endurance, boosts the immune system, improves blood pressure, memory, as well as neurological function. This synergistic blend of high quality ingredients also include Vitamins C, E Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Chromium, and turmeric. Adrena Boost is vital at times of physical or emotional stress or for anyone who shows the signs of hypadrenia, since this stress fighting formula replenishes the specific nutrients known to support adrenal function. Adrena Boost offers a safe and effective way to inrease energy levels and support the body during times of emotional and dietary stress.
You have most likely heard the phrase, “Are you running on adrenaline?” and that is exactly what many people do. When the body is overstressed, either physically or emotionally, there is an increased demand placed on the adrenal glands to produce adrenaline (epinephrine), steroidal hormones and other substances. In addition to stress, dietary habitsâ€”including overuse of sugar, alcohol, caffeine, and white flourâ€”place additional demands on the adrenal glands.
When the body is under a high level of physical or emotional stress, the adrenal glands may become over-taxed and unable to synthesize optimal levels of adrenal hormones. The result may be dehydration, which interferes with nutrient delivery and contributes to aging and kidney problems. Improper adrenal function also affects the heart â€“ causing a wide range of concerns, including arrhythmia, reduced cardiac output, hypertension, and possible heart attacks.
Studies show that the adrenal glands can be supported and returned to optimal functioning by supplying the body with the nutrients known to be depleted during times of stress. Adrena Boost, from Optimal Health Systems, is an exclusive blend of these nutrients. It includes vitamin C, since it is necessary for adrenal hormone synthesis and is often depleted with chronic stress. Vitamin E is also shown to help prevent the damage to the adrenal cells that comes with chronic stress.
The minerals, magnesium and zinc, are considered to be key adrenal ingredients. Selenium, for its antioxidant effects; and chromium, which supports vitamin C metabolism, are also important nutrients.
Adrena Boost is an exclusive blend of nutrients that support the adrenal glands during times of stress and help them return to optimal functioning. Panax ginseng is the key nutrient in this formula, supporting the adrenals without the use of glandulars. Turmeric is another herb included in Adrena Boost that has been shown to support adrenal function and help reduce the effects of stress on the body. Only Adrena Boost provides the body with the jumpstart it needs by supplying the nutrients that are most often depleted during times of stress.
Each capsule contains:
Vitamin C (from acerola cherry) 18 mg, Magnesium (as amino acid chelate) 25 mg, Zinc (as amino acid chelate) 10 mg, Selenium (as amino acid complex) 20 mcg, Chromium (as amino acid chelate) 40 mcg, Ginseng (Panax)(root) 75 mg, L-Tyrosine 50 mg, Licorice (deglycyrrihizinated)(root) 30 mg, Curcuminoids (from turmeric root) 30 mg, Magnesium Glycyl Glutamine 25 mg, Mixed Tocopherols (from seed oil) 3 mg, Opti-Blend Delivery System 10 mg
A Natural Anti-Inflammatory
If you are in pain, use the formula, Optimal Acute, used by some of the top athletes and doctors across the nation. When the pain of inflammation strikes, whether it comes after an accident, a fall, an athletic event or overwork, most people grab a bottle of aspirin or an anti-inflammatory drug. Over-the-counter preparations and prescription anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS) are on the rise, as are the many harmful side effects. Damage to the liver and kidneys, digestive distress and ulcers, high blood pressure and even death are tied to these supposed cures. Optimal Acute has been proven to reduce inflammation and speed recovery faster than over-the-counter NSAIDS without any side effects.
