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.

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.

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.

MSM is necessary for collagen synthesis: skin, hair, and nails, as it keeps cells from becoming rigid. MSM softens tissue (the beauty mineral), relieves stress, asthma, arthritis, inflamation, constipation, and candida. It detoxifies the body and increases blood circulation, reduces muscle cramps, back pain, permits muscles to heal, increases energy alertness, mental calmness, and the ability to concentrate. MSM scavenges free radicals, relieves allergies to foods and pollens, helps the liver produce choline, and controls acidity in stomach and ulcers. It also coats the intestinal tract to remove parasites, helps with hypersensitivity to drugs, increases the body’s ability to produce insulin, is important for carbohydrate metabolism, and speeds wound healing. We carry this product in various forms as mentioned above-eye drops, capsules, cream, and powder. 1000mg

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.

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.
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.
