The Benefits of Nutritional Supplements
Visit " Wellness 4 beauty " to learn more about our supplements.

Yes, you really do need them ... and here are some critical reasons why;
 
Nutritional Deficiencies
Supplements help you overcome nutritional deficiencies. Nutrients in there proper amounts contribute to optimum health. Since our diets most likely can not provide all the nutrients we require, nutritional supplements can help fill those gaps.

Boost the Immune System
Supplements can help boost your immune system. The stronger your immune system, the more resistant your body can be against disease. You've probably heard numerous times about Vitamin C helping to avoid the common cold and other related illnesses - this is exactly how useful supplementation is.

Avoid those bad Toxins
Supplements are useful in getting rid of those bad toxins we come in contact with daily. The environmental stresses we go through, chemicals we are in touch with , as well as our lifestyle - these all subject us to harful toxins which can lead to serious health problems. Supplements, most especially anti-oxidants, can help our body keep toxins to a minimum.

"I'm already taking supplements, but I barely see any difference."

Take supplements seriously. Many people have the same challenge, they don't take supplementation seriously and they end up taking the most available, or perhaps the cheapest, or, equally as bad, they believe in those bold claims on TV or in print Ads and end up with low quality products.

FIT Active Ingredients
  • Supercitrimax (Hydroxycitric Acid)
  • Fruit rind Extract of Garcinia cambogia – Malabar tamarind
HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid)
  • Turns ‘Off’ two important biological Switches…
  • Fatty Acid synthesis / Storage &
  • Glycogen Breakdown Helps to stop the storage of “long term energy” – Body fat
  • Helps to switch off signals to breakdown or metabolize Glycogen in the Liver for energy
  • This sends signal to the brain for nourishment. As a result the nutrients consumed today are being used not stored
  • Promote body fat metabolism for energy. * Inhibit Fatty Acid synthesis
  • Inhibit Lipogenesis from Excessive Carbohydrate in diet
  • Enhances the availability of Serotonin for appetite suppression
  • Maintain blood glucose level so that Glycogen level remain intact
  • Lower blood Leptin level to reduce appetite
HCA Effectively blocks the conversion of starchy and sugary food in to body fat Low levels of blood glucose stimulate the Pancreas to release glucagon which in turn stimulates the liver to breakdown Glycogen and release glucose in to blood stream.

Blood glucose levels are stabilized by levels of Hydroxycitric acid. Hydroxycitric Acid replaces glucose as an energy source for cellular metabolism
  • Fatty Acid Metabolism in to needed energy is “switched On”.
  • Lipids in the blood stream become a source of energy, sparing blood glucose for later.
  • Indication to the body is food is not needed at this time.
  • Endurance athletes burn body fat for energy, not glucose.
  • Stimulates the brain cortex to increase the release of Serotonin.
  • Serotonin is a neurotransmitter implicated in the regulation of eating behavior and appetite.
  • High levels of Serotonin as maintained by HCA tells the brain “I am not hungry” thus controlling appetite
  • HCA Powerfully modulate Leptin – sensitivity.
  • Leptin’s function is to help reduce appetite. Leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells. Leptin tells ’no need to eat now, There is enough fat for energy”.
  • Excessive body fat sends constant signal to brain that eventually become ignored.
  • HCA helps to lower blood Leptin levels and ultimately to re-induce the sensitivity.
Be FIT!

As you are well aware, gone are those days when, beauty was confined to the ‘facial skin’! Today, many things count like what is inside as well as what is outside! Beauty is no longer restricted to the facial skin; it is a matter of the entire 20+ square feet of the Skin, not just the 1 square foot on the face and neck. And it is needless to say that a soft, smooth, supple, firm, radiant and glowing skin has more to do from within, deep within than from outside.

The Skin, being challenged and insulted relentlessly by substandard and synthetic cosmetic and personal care products, could become beyond repair and re-building as days go by.

OHM
Rich in resources for increased mental energy. OHM Active Ingredients (15
  • 13) Schizandra (Fruit)
  • 14) Rhodiola (Root)
  • 15) Ginseng (Root)
The fast-paced environment of everyday living is stressful and at times overwhelming. Lacking the nutrients to provide both sustained energy and that "burst of energy" often needed, modern diets frequently require supplements to fill the gap.

Agel OHM is a blend of vitamins, minerals, and herbs that complement a proper diet and regular exercise to support the body by providing the "extra energy" required to meet everyday demands. It does not rely upon chemical stimulants like caffeine or ephedra. Rather, it looks to a B-complex vitamin-based formula that acts as a coenzyme to facilitate the body's own metabolic processes required to convert carbohydrates into energy. Panax Ginseng is included, which is a strong adaptogen to help the body resist stressful influences. Panax Ginseng has also been associated with beneficial effects on motor performance, cognitive behavior and overall quality of Life. Likewise, OHM contains Rhodiola rosea to help improve physical endurance and mental performance, and to reduce stress-induced fatigue. Schizandra, grown in China and Korea, is another premium herb found in OHM. It was used historically, and still used today to help improve concentration, strength, stamina, endurance, and alertness, without causing nervousness like caffeine related stimulants.

Although nothing can replace a healthy diet and regular physical activity, Agel OHM may be an excellent source of additional energy during a stressful day.
 
UMI
Fucoidan is one of the most exciting nutritional discoveries of the last decade. UMI is rich in this amazing ingredient derived from brown seaweed, which for centuries has been heralded by cultures with famously long life spans.

Some Facts about UMI
In many parts of the world, seaweed is not a regular part of the daily diet. In fact, there are many people who would not even consider eating seaweed. However, with Agel UMI, the exceptional health benefits of this oceanic treasure are now available to the masses. So, what is it about the brown seaweed that is so extraordinary? Through extensive research, scientists have identified a complex sulfated polysaccharide, called fucoidan as the active ingredient. Its primary makeup consists of an essential sugar called fucose along with other elements such as xylose, mannose, and galactose, and glucose. Studies consistently show that fucoidan possesses a wide range of properties beneficial to maintaining optimal health.

One of the primary ways in which Fucoidan provides a vast array of health benefits is its ability to interact with, and modulate the immune system. Several studies have identified many of the immune modulating effects of Fucoidan. The ability of a substance to modulate the immune system is an extremely useful property. Modulation is a term used to describe the process of reducing the extremes of cellular activity &mash; either stimulation or inhibition. Immune modulating substances have the ability to increase immune function when it is depressed, and also to reduce it when it is over-stimulated.

Most immune modulating agents work by improving inter-cellular communication. One way cells interact and communicate is by presenting glycoproteins on their surface. Glycoproteins are complex information-rich macromolecules composed of a protein core to which is bound arrays of linked chains of sugars (polysaccharides). The structures of the polysaccharides vary and therefore relay different codes for different messages. For example, one message might tell a cell to secrete a specific cellular product, and another message might tell a cell when to divide. Other cells have corresponding glycoprotein receptor molecules, which can then read these messages and respond accordingly. Thus, our bodies are involved in a very sophisticated and harmonious intercellular communication all the time.

The immune system depends heavily on this kind of communication to co-ordinate cellular defense, apoptosis, cell attack and repair processes. When any of the range of individual saccharides required to build competent glycoproteins (and thereby convey an accurate message) are missing, the quality of that communication is compromised. It has been shown that dietary supply of certain saccharides improves the integrity of glycoprotein production. Fucoidans provide an abundant supply of Fucose, one of the necessary saccharides, and smaller amounts of several other required sugars. This is likely to be one mechanism by which the fucoidans exert their immunomodulatory effect.

Now, with this understanding of glycoprotiens, and intercellular communication, let’s specifically identify the ways in which Fucoidan has been shown to be of significant benefit for health and wellness.

Regenerate Cells
Much of the research that has been done on fucoidan has been focused on its ability to regenerate cells. Studies have shown that fucoidan helps support mobilization of stem cells that enable the body to replace dead cells thereby enabling tissue and organ regeneration. In addition, fucoidan helps slow symptoms of the aging process. In study after study, fucoidan has shown itself to be beneficial in the fight for a long, healthy life.

Support the Circulatory System & Health Functions
Fucoidan has also been shown to help maintain healthy blood flow and cardiac functions, thereby supporting the circulatory system. Increased blood flow helps all of our organs work more efficiently and helps us to feel better and healthier.8 Efficient functioning of our vital organs can help us reduce the effects of “wear and tear” of the normal aging process. Additionally, one study suggested that fucoidan helps to slow the absorption rate of glucose, or sugar, into the blood stream. A slower absorption rate help to maintain a more regulated blood sugar level and minimize the damage potentially caused by high blood sugar levels.

Maintain Existing Normal Cholesterol Levels
The process of cholesterol formation occurs in the liver. Our bodies produce a “good” cholesterol (HDL) and a “bad” cholesterol (LDL). Optimum health is achieved when we can maintain LDLs and HDLs already in the normal range. There is some evidence to suggest that fucoidan can help us to maintain existing healthy levels of cholesterol by influencing the metabolic activity in the liver where fatty acids are processed.

Help Support Healthy Joint Functions
For many of us in the United States and throughout the world, maintaining healthy joints and cartilage are daily concerns. Among its many properties, fucoidan has been hailed as a natural answer to joint health. Fucoidan supports proper joint functions and cartilage health by modulating some of our body’s processes.

Assist in Inducing the Elimination of Harmful Cells
Fucoidan may also prove helpful in eliminating harmful cells. This is accomplished through a process called apoptosis. Apoptosis is technical term for the programmed process of a cell “bursting” and therefore dying. Sulphated polysaccharides like fucoidan have been shown to assist in inducing appropriate programmed apoptosis, which is a natural process where living organisms eliminate harmful cells and render the genetic blueprint (DNA) of harmful cells useless.

Help Maintain a Strong Immune System
Fucoidan supports the immune system in a number of different ways. Some research suggests that it may cause an increase in the number of circulating mature white blood cells in the body, which are an integral part of the body’s natural immune system.17 The findings from other studies suggest that fucoidan supports the immune system by improving phagocytosis and activating other important immune responses.

Promotes Optimal Gastrointestinal Health
The number of people concerned with maintaining gastrointestinal health is rapidly increasing around the world as more and more people are consuming foods with more fat content and less dietary fiber. Once in the gastrointestinal tract, fucoidan attaches to the lining where it has a protective effect. In addition, it stimulates the gut lining to “self-repair” tissue. Fucoidan, because of its immune promoting activity, is a tremendous aid in maintaining proper gastrointestinal function and health.

2. L- Carnitine
3. Folic Acid
4. Selenium
5. Taurine
6. Policosanol
7. Oyster Mushroom Powder
 
CoEnzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a compound found naturally in the energy-producing center of the cell known as the mitochondria.

CoQ10 is involved in the making of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which serves as the cell's major energy source and drives a number of biological processes including muscle contraction and the production of proteins.

CoQ10 also works as potent antioxidant that scavenge free radicals, the damaging compounds in the body that alter cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death.

Free radicals are believed to contribute to the aging process as well as the development of a number of health problems including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants such as CoQ10 can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.

CoQ10 boosts energy, enhances the immune system, and acts as an antioxidant. Clinical research suggests that using coenzyme Q10 supplements alone or in combination with other drug therapies and nutritional supplements may help prevent or treat some hampered health conditions.

Researchers believe that the beneficial effect of CoQ10 in the prevention and treatment of heart disease is due to its ability to improve energy production in cells, inhibit blood clot formation, and act as an antioxidant Several clinical studies involving small numbers of people suggest that CoQ10 may lower blood pressure. It may take 4 - 12 weeks before any beneficial effect is observed.

Levels of CoQ10 tend to be lower in people with high cholesterol compared to healthy individuals of the same age. In addition, certain cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (such as atorvastatin, cerivastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, simvastatin) appear to deplete natural levels of CoQ10 in the body.

Taking CoQ10 supplements can correct the deficiency caused by statin medications without affecting the medication's positive effects on cholesterol levels.

CoQ10 supplements may improve heart health and blood sugar and help manage high cholesterol and high blood pressure in individuals with diabetes. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease are all common problems associated with diabetes

Several clinical studies suggest that CoQ10 may help prevent heart damage caused by certain chemotherapy drugs (namely adriamycin or other athracycline medications).

Clinical research indicates that introducing CoQ10 prior to heart surgery, including bypass surgery and heart transplantation, can reduce damage caused by free radicals, strengthen heart function, and lower the incidence of irregular heart beat (arrhythmias) during the recovery phase.

Gum disease is a widespread problem that is associated with swelling, bleeding, pain, and redness of the gums. Clinical studies have reported that people with gum disease tend to have low levels of CoQ10 in their gums.

Preliminary studies indicate that Coenzyme Q10 may help to Improve immune function in individuals with immune deficiencies (such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS) and chronic infections (such as yeast, bacteria, and viral infections)

Increase sperm motility leading to enhanced fertility

Be used as part of the treatment for Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease

Reduce damage from stroke statins for cholesterol , including atorvastatin (Lipitor), lovastatin (Mevacor), pravastatin (Pravachol, and simvastatin (Zocor), fibric acid derivatives for cholesterol, including gemfibrozil (Lopid), beta-blockers for high blood pressure, such as atenolol (Tenormin), labetolol (Normodyne), metoprolol (Lopressor or Toprol), and propranolol (Inderal), and tricyclic antidepressant medications, including amitriptyline (Elavil), doxepin (Sinequan), and imipramine (Tofranil).

These medications lowers the Coenzyme Q 10 levels in the body.
 
L-Carnitine
Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. It is produced by the body in the liver and kidneys and stored in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm.

Usually, the body can make all the carnitine it needs. Some people, however, may be deficient in carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough carnitine or transport it in to tissues so it can be used.

Some other conditions, such as angina or intermittent claudication, can also cause insufficient carnitine in the body, as can some medications

Angina -- The best evidence for carnitine's use for heart disease is as an addition to conventional treatment for stable angina. Several clinical trials indicate that L-carnitine can help reduce symptoms of angina and improve the ability of those with angina to exercise without chest pain.

Some studies suggest that people who take L- carnitine supplements soon after a heart attack may be less likely to suffer a subsequent heart attack, die of heart disease, experience chest pain and abnormal heart rhythms, or develop heart failure.

Few studies have suggested that carnitine can help reduce symptoms of heart failure and improve exercise capacity in people with heart failure.

Decreased blood flow to the legs from atherosclerosis (plaque build up) often causes an aching or cramping pain in the legs while walking or exercising. This pain is called intermittent claudication, and the diminished blood flow to the legs is called peripheral vascular disease (PVD). A number of studies show that carnitine can help reduce symptoms and increase the distance that people with intermittent claudication can walk.
 
Kidney Disease and Dialysis
Because the kidneys produce carnitine, kidney disease could lead to a deficiency of carnitine in the body. Decreased blood flow to the legs from atherosclerosis (plaque build up) often causes an aching or cramping pain in the legs while walking or exercising. This pain is called intermittent claudication, and the diminished blood flow to the legs is called peripheral vascular disease (PVD). A number of studies show that carnitine can help reduce symptoms and increase the distance that people with intermittent claudication can walk.
 
Kidney Disease and Dialysis
Because the kidneys produce carnitine, kidney disease could lead to a deficiency of carnitine in the body. Low sperm counts have been linked to low carnitine levels in men. Several studies suggest that L- carnitine supplementation may increase sperm count and mobility. Some research suggests that L-carnitine may prove useful for preventing or reducing symptoms of an overactive thyroid, such as insomnia, nervousness, elevated heart rate, and tremors.
 
Folic Acid
Folic acid is a type of B vitamin. It is water-soluble, which means it cannot be stored in the body. That means you need a continuous supply of the vitamin in your diet.

Folic acid works along with vitamin B12 and vitamin C to help the body break down, use, and create new proteins. The vitamin helps form red blood cells and helps produce DNA, the building block of the human body, which carries genetic information.

Folic acid also helps tissues grow and cells work. Taking the right amount of folic acid before and during pregnancy helps prevent certain birth defects, including spina bifida The results of more than 80 studies indicate that even moderately elevated levels of homocysteine in the blood increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

An analysis of the observational studies on blood homocysteine and vascular disease indicated that a prolonged decrease in plasma homocysteine level of only 1 micromole/liter resulted in about a 10% risk reduction The mechanism by which homocysteine increases the risk of vascular disease remains the subject of a great deal of research, but it may involve adverse effects of homocysteine on blood clotting, arterial vasodilation, and thickening of arterial walls.

Taurine
Taurine helps support proper heart function by normalizing potassium flow in and out of the heart muscle and aiding in free-radical elimination.

Taurine, often referred to as an amino acid, is not part of the human body’s structural proteins. Instead, taurine remains free in the tissues and bloodstream. In fact, taurine is one of the most abundant free amino-acid-like compounds found in the heart, the skeletal muscles and the nervous system.

At times of extreme physical exertion, the body no longer produces the required amounts of taurine, which results in a relative deficiency. Taurine acts as a metabolic transmitter and is also known to have a detoxifying effect.

Taurine also plays an important role in the brain. Some researchers believe that taurine can be a beneficial dietary supplement for people who suffer from bipolar disorder (manic depression).
 
Selenium
Selenium is an essential mineral found in trace amounts in the body. It works as an antioxidant, especially when combined with vitamin E, by scavenging damaging particles in the body, the free radicals.

Selenium plays a role in thyroid function and is needed for the immune system to work properly. Scientists have observed that people with a number of conditions, ranging from rheumatoid arthritis to some types of cancer, often have low levels of selenium. Levels of Selenium are lowered if one Smoke cigarettes Drink alcohol Take birth control pills Have a malabsorption syndrome (such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis)

Scientists know that low levels of selenium can contribute to heart failure, and being deficient in selenium appears to make atherosclerosis (plaque build up in arteries which can lead to heart attack and stroke) worse.

Many studies suggest that the body needs selenium in order for the immune system to function properly. Selenium along with other minerals can help build up white blood cells, enhancing the body's ability to fight illness and infection.

Evidence suggests that people with asthma tend to have low blood levels of selenium. In a study of 24 people with asthma, those who received selenium supplements for 14 weeks had fewer symptoms compared to those who received placebo.
 
Oyster Mushroom Powder
The researchers (thus) conclude that oyster mushroom significantly reduced blood glucose, blood pressure, triglycerides and cholesterol of diabetic patients without any deleterious effect on liver and kidney. The effect of mushroom may be investigated in a large sample for a longer duration to evaluate its efficacy and toxicity.

In literature, the mechanism of oyster mushroom’s hypocholesterolemic effects (lowering cholesterol) lies with its abilty to reduce cholesterol absorption and increase plasma cholesterol removal by reducing the production and secretion of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL).
 
Policosanol
Relatively recent on the non-prescription cholesterol lowering radar is policosanol. Policosanol consists of a mixture of fatty alcohols derived from waxes of sugar cane yams, and beeswax. The main ingredient of policosanol is octanosol, which is also sold as a separate product. It is thought that the fatty alcohols in policosanol act on cholesterol metabolism in the liver, but at a different part of the metabolic pathway than statins.

Many animal studies with policosanol demonstrate a cholesterol lowering effect, and more recently human studies have suggested that LDL cholesterol can be reduced to a degree similar to that achieved with statins, and that HDL cholesterol can be increased by as much as 10 - 25% (an effect difficult to achieve with statins.) Policosanol reduces the platelet aggregation (i.e., the "stickiness" of platelets, the blood elements that promote blood clotting,) so should be used with caution, if at all, in patients taking blood thinners such as Coumadin
