Psyllium Hulls (100 count)

Psyllium Hulls (100 count)

Description:
Benefits:

•Encourages normal bowel movements.
•Contains high fiber content to aid in the absorption of bowel toxins.
•Helps lower food-cholesterol absorption.
•Soothes bowel tissue.
•Cleanses the entire lower bowel.
•Helps normalize dietary blood sugar levels.

Plantago psyllium is a popular product that is best known as a bulking and lubricating agent for the digestive system. Psyllium is an annual herb native to Mediterannean climates. All parts of the plant are used by some cultures, but the seed and seed hulls are preferred. The husk mucilage is used as a thickener or stabilizer in some frozen dairy desserts. It is also used as a bulking agent.

HOW IT WORKS

Psyllium hulls have a remarkable ability to absorb water many times their own weight, which makes them swell. This exerts a gentle pressure on intestinal walls, stimulating them to contract normally. However psyllium must be used with plenty of water, and it should not be used if someone has a bowel obstruction. Psyllium’s ability to absorb bowel toxins, together with the natural action of the bowel, work to keep the walls of the intestine clear of harmful debris. An additional advantage of psyllium hulls, when taken with a meal, is their natural ability to absorb dietary sugar, slowing its absorption into the bloodstream. This may be an advantage for those who know they have overindulged.

SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT

According to the American Heart Association, 50 percent of middle aged Americans have dangerously high levels of blood cholesterol, a contributing factor to the high rate of cardiovascular disease in the U.S.
Scientific research has shown that cutting down on fats and increasing the amount of soluble fiber into the diet can significantly reduce these levels. But getting enough soluble fiber into the diet can be a problem, Most foods contain only small amounts. Even oat bran is a mere 7% soluble fiber. 100 capsules

RECOMMENDED USE

Adults Mix 1 teaspoon in a glass of water or juice one to three times daily. Children: Mix 1/4 tsp in half glass of water or juice at bedtime.

Chromium GTF/500 mcg. (90 count)

Chromium GTF/500 mcg. (90 count)

Description:
A trace mineral that plays a role in regulating blood sugar levels. Each glucose tolerance factor molecule- a hormonelike compound- requires chromium as its central atom. GTF works with insulin to transport glucose from the blood into the cells. When this function is not working properly- the cells resist insulin and do not properly absorb the glucose needed for energy.
The liver also needs chromium to manufacture fatty acids- lecithin- cholesterol and lipoproteins. Without chromium- blood fats tend to rise because the liver cannot filter them out. Processing destroys much of the chromium content in foods.
Each tablet of GTF chromium contains 500 mcg of chromium amino acid chelate and chromium nicotinate in a base of red clover tops- yarrow flower- and horsetail herb. Stock 1801-6. 90 capsules per bottle.

l-Carnitine (30 count)

l-Carnitine (30 count)

Description:
An amino acid from which certain proteins are made. It is synthesized in the liver and kidneys. The body also requires it for the transport of long chain fatty acids into the cells. It was discovered in 1905. According to the National Research Council- symptoms of carnitine deficiency include progressive muscle weakness and severe hypoglycemia. Carnitine is not found in vegetaable foods- but is mostly found in animal muscle tissue. Manufactured forms of Dl-carnitine (synthetic) may have adverse side effects. This product uses only the safe- natural l-carnitine. Each capsule contains 250 mg of natural l-carnitine. Take one or more capsules daily with meals. Stock 1632-6. 30 capsules per bottle.

Lecithin (270 count)

Lecithin (270 count)

Description:
Lecithin is a fat like substance called a phospholipid. It is produced daily by the liver- if the diet is adequate. It is needed by every cell in the body and largely makes up cell membranes- without it- they would harden. Lecithin protects cells from oxidation- and helps make up the protective sheaths surrounding the brain. It is composed largely of B vitamins- phosphoric acid- choline- linoleic acid and inositol. Although it is a fatty substance- it is also a fat emulsifier. Hence- it also supports the circulatory system. Its choline is useful to make acetylcholine. This product contains lecithin derived from soybeans and is hermetically sealed in capsules. No carrier has been added and freshness is guaranteed. Each capsule contains 520 mg (eight grains). Take two capsules with meals three times daily. Stock 1660-5. 270 capsules per bottle.
