					ADRENAL
DESCRIPTION:

It is a dietary supplement containing essential nutrients for adrenal gland
function. The adrenals are ductless glands of the endocrine system that are
responsible for producing some of the most important hormones in the body.
Each gland normally weighs about five grams and is comprised of two parts:
the cortex or outer section, which is responsible for the production of                        EACH TABLET CONTAINS:
                                                                                               Raw Adrenal concentrate..................................200 mg
cortisone, and the medulla or central section, which secretes adrenaline.
The adrenal cortex helps to maintain salt and water balance in the body. It is
also involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and the regulation of blood
sugar. The cortex produces a sex hormone similar to that secreted by the
testes as well. The medulla of the adrenal gland produces the hormone
epinephrine, also called adrenaline, when the body is under stress. This
hormone speeds up the rate of metabolism in order to help the body cope
with stressful situations. The functioning ability of the adrenal glands is most
often impaired due to extensive use of cortisone therapy for nonendocrine
diseases, such as arthritis and asthma. Long-term use of cortisone drugs
causes the adrenal gland to shrink in size. Pituitary disease and tuberculosis
also cause adrenocortical failure.


ACTIONS:

In conventional medical circles, people suffering from stress are generally
diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome though some are given more
erudite sounding pronouncements that appear to refer to viruses, like
Epstein-Barr Syndrome or Cytomegalovirus. Some are told that they are
allergic or environmentally sensitive.


SUGGESTED USE:

Take 1 tablet daily, or as directed by a physician.

SIZE:

ADRENAL from Vitazan Herbs & Vitamins is available in 90 capsules of 200
mg (code 748).

Some conditions may increase your need for iron. These include:
$    Bleeding problems;
$    Burns;

$    Intestinal diseases;
$    Stomach problems;
$    Stomach removal;

Inorganic iron is frequently associated with stomach upsets. However,
complexing iron to an organic molecule such as ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
makes it highly bioavailable a form of iron complex suitable for people
who are generally sensitive to iron supplementation. Most mineral
ascorbates have an extremely high absorption rate and therefore need
lower amounts for effectiveness.

MD, professor of internal medicine. Not only is zinc essential in regulating
the activities of 300 enzymes, but 1400 zinc-finger proteins are involved in
gene expression of various proteins. Low zinc levels have recently been
associated with the development of esophageal and head/neck cancer.
Supporting that claim are co-investigator Dr. Ananda Prasad=s studies which
have shown that as much as 45 to 65 percent of patients with head and neck
cancer may have zinc deficiencies.

We are constantly breaking down old genetic material and replacing it with
new genetic material. This process is continual and requires huge amounts
of an enzyme called DNA polymerase, which makes sure that the genetic
material is assembled in proper sequence. If there are minute changes to
this genetic programming a new disease may result. What can interfere with
this process are the hundreds of chemicals in our environment that bombard
us daily. DNA polymerase is another zinc dependent enzyme and thus can
be helpful in treating chronic fatigue. Zinc also plays a crucial role for
diabetes, slows down aging, enhances vision and liver functions, and is
effective in detoxifying alcohol.

The body routinely converts some alpha lipoic acid to dihydrolipoic acid
which appears to be an even more powerful antioxidant. Both forms of
lipoic acid quench peroxynitrite radicals, an especially dangerous type
consisting of both oxygen and nitrogen, according to a recent paper in
FEBS Letters (Whiteman M, et al., FEBS Letters, 1996; 379:74-6).
Peroxynitrite radicals play a role in the development of atherosclerosis,
lung disease, chronic inflammation, and neurological disorders.


Alpha lipoic acid also plays an important role in the synergism of
antioxidants, what some doctors prefer to call the body's "antioxidant
network". It directly recycles and extends the metabolic life spans of
vitamin C, glutathione, and coenzyme Q10, and it indirectly renews
vitamin E.


In Germany, alpha lipoic acid is an approved medical treatment for
peripheral neuropathy, a common complication of diabetes. It speeds the
removal of glucose from the bloodstream, at least partly by enhancing
insulin function, and it reduces insulin resistance, an underpinning of
many cases of coronary heart disease and obesity. The therapeutic dose
for lipoic acid is 600 mg daily (The richest food source of alpha lipoic acid
is red meat.) From a therapeutic viewpoint, few natural antioxidants are
ideal. An ideal therapeutic antioxidant should fulfill several criteria. These
include absorption from the diet, conversion in cells and tissues into
usable form, a variety of antioxidant actions (including interactions with
other antioxidants) in both membrane and aqueous phases, and low

BCA-80
DESCRIPTION:

Vitazan=s BCA-80 is made from 100% pure pharmaceutical grade
Lactalbumin Hydrolysate for maximal protein utilization. Each tablet
provides the optimal mix of free-form di and tri-peptide amino acids.
BCA-80 is a scientifically balanced source of both essential and non-
essential amino acids. BCA-80 should be taken with a complete multi-
vitamin, such as Vitazan Herbs & Vitamins Vita-Juice or Multi #2. Amino
acids are dependent on vitamins and minerals to work.

that contains a combination of carotenes in a balanced form.


Carotenes are naturally occurring pigments found in vegetables and
fruits, very beneficial to the human body.


Carotenoids are known to be very powerful antioxidants. The best known
carotenoid for the past years has been beta-carotene, precursor of
vitamin A in the body, but recent studies show that there are other
carotenoids that have other activities than being precursors of vitamin A
and have the ability to be deposited in the tissues in a greater degree.
                                                                                             EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:

ACTIONS:
Beta-Carotene, natural mixed carotenoids complex is a good source of
pro-vitamin A and well balanced antioxidants. It plays an important role in
the protection of the cells from the damage of free radicals.


It increases tissue carotenoids levels and increases the integrity of the
ephitelial lining. It preserves the thymus gland. It is of benefit to the
immune system.


Because of the content of Zeaxanthin and lutein it provides antioxidant
protection to the structure of the eyes, protecting the eye and improving
eye vision. It promotes good health of the skin and eyes.


High intakes of naturally occurring carotenes present no toxicity in
humans.


SUGGESTED USE:

Take 1 softgel a day, or as directed by a physician.

BROMELAIN
DESCRIPTION:
                                                                                      SUGGESTED USE:
Bromelain is found mostly in the stems of pineapples, and through
extraction is available as a dietary supplement.                                      Take 1 or 2 capsules at mealtime to help digestion, or as directed by a
                                                                                      physician.
Bromelain is a group of proteolytic enzymes that are essential for
digesting protein. Although most enzymes are considered to be poorly                  SIZE:

who suffer from malabsorption usually use Proteolytic type of enzymes to

Bromelain can prevent excessive blood platelet stickiness because it is a
natural blood thinner. Through the positive reports in clinical trials,
bromelain    was   shown    to   decrease    symptoms     of    angina   and
thrombophlebitis. In addition, bromelain reduces the thickness of mucus,
which can benefit patients with asthma or chronic bronchitis.

ACTIONS:
Bromelain is a natural anti-inflammatory enzyme that works by breaking
down fibrin, a blood-clotting protein that can impede good circulation and
prevent tissues from properly draining. Bromelain is used particularly with
strains, muscle injuries, pain, swelling, and tenderness that accompany
sports injuries. Bromelain also blocks the production of compounds that
can cause swelling and pain. When inflammation is minimized, blood can                       EACH CAPSULE CONTANS:

Bromelain is generally safe and free of side effects when taken in
moderate amounts. However, increased heart rate has been noted with
the use of bromelain, because it acts as a blood thinner. In addition,
some people may be allergic to bromelain. Individuals should seek the
advice from a health care professional before combining other drugs
with bromelain.

the formation of potentially carcinogenic nitrosamines in the stomach. It
is involved in folic acid metabolism and in the synthesis of many
important   hormones     and   neurotransmitters.    Vitamin     C   (calcium
ascorbate) helps form red blood cells which aids in preventing
hemorrhaging and speeds up the healing of wounds. Vitamin C (calcium
ascorbate) is essential in the formation of adrenaline and is absorbed in
the mucous membranes of the mouth, stomach, and upper part of the
small intestine.


ACTIONS:

Antiatherogenic,    antihypercholesterolemic,       Vitamin     C    (calcium
ascorbate) is an immune booster and aids in fighting bacterial infections.
It is a strong antioxidant destroying free radicals in the body. Vitamin C
(calcium    ascorbate)    is   an   anticancerogenic,         antitumorigenic,
antibacterial, and promotes bone and tooth formation. When serum
levels of Vitamin C are high, synovial fluid becomes thinner allowing free
movements and reducing arthritic pain. Vitamin C (calcium ascorbate)
may aid in lowering the blood cholesterol level and slows the aging
process. It helps prevent prostate cancer.


SUGGESTED USE:

found that COX-2 levels were directly associated with levels of a growth
factor that promotes the development of new blood vessels, a process
called angiogenesis. In the cells missing the COX-2 gene, vascular

CHITOSAN
DESCRIPTION:
Chitosan is an all-natural product that when taken before meals, can
substantially reduce the amount of fat absorbed from the foods you eat.

throughout Europe to help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Chitosan                              EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:

ACTIONS:
Chitosan has absolutely no calories, as it is not digestible. Chitosan attaches
to fat in the stomach before it is metabolized, then traps the fat and prevents
its absorption in the digestive tract. The fat binds to the Chitosan fibre and
becomes a large mass, which the body cannot absorb. This mass is then
eliminated from the body. Neutralizing fat after it enters the stomach spares
the body from having to digest and store fat. Chitosan fibre differs from other
fibres in that it possesses a positive ionic charge. Since opposites attract
(just like magnets), the fat molecules from the foods you ingest bond with the
Chitosan, and are harmlessly excreted through the bowels. This positive
charge gives Chitosan the ability to chemically bond with negatively charged
lipids, fats and bile. (Muzzarelli, 1990). Daily percentage values are based
on a 2,000-calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending
on your calorie needs. We suggest you use the help of your health
professional while using this product.


SUGGESTED USE:
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsules 1/2 hour before lunch and 1
capsule after lunch. Take one capsule 1/2 hour before dinner, and 1 capsule
after. Or follow the directions from your health professional. For good results,
it is imperative that Chitosan be taken at least a half-hour before and not
during a meal. For Chitosan to be effective it must be dissolved, otherwise it
will not bind with fats and oils. For maximum benefits, drink at least 4-8
ounces glasses of purified water per day. As Chitosan absorbs fats, there
are many essential vitamins and nutrients that will be missing in your diet.
We suggest that a multi vitamin supplement be taken while using this
product. Any fat-soluble vitamin (A, D, E and K), medication or fatty acid
should be taken at least 4 hours before or after ingestion. Chitosan should
also be used in conjunction with a healthy dietary lifestyle plan.


SIZE:
CHITOSAN from Vitazan Herbs & Vitamins is available in 180 capsules of
300 mg (code 107).

CHLOROPHYLL FROM ALFALFA
DESCRIPTION:
Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that harnesses the sun's energy in
photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is to plants what blood is to humans; it performs
metabolic reactions such as respiration and growth.


ACTIONS:
Chlorophyll has been used to repair tissues and is often used to help
neutralize the pollution that we eat and breathe. It assists in the assimilation
of calcium and other minerals and works to strengthen and purify the entire

Chlorophyll is recommended as an excellent specific for influencing anaemia
of various kinds, improving the action of the heart and for reducing high
blood pressure when it is abnormally high.


Liquid chlorophyll can help neutralize the toxic effects of some mutagens,
which are ever-present in our food and water.


Chlorophyll is mainly used in its liquid form. The alfalfa leaves are processed
to extract their chlorophyll content. Copper and sodium atoms replace the
magnesium atom in chlorophyll so that it is made into a stable, watersoluble
liquid. When ingested in its liquid form, chlorophyll remains unchanged until
it reaches the small intestine.


Of course, chlorophyll can be obtained by eating plenty of fresh, green
plants, especially those that are a deep green color. However, in plant form,
chlorophyll is surrounded by fat substances which may result in only partial
absorption in the small intestine.


Chlorophyll has been found to be non toxic, soothing to body tissues and
safe for use by people of all ages. It can be used to clean fruits and
vegetables when a few drops are added to water.


SUGGESTED USE:
Shake well. As an addition to the daily diet, take 1 teaspoon (5 ml) daily in a
glass of water (250 ml).

Chondroitin Sulfate acts like a "liquid magnet". It helps attract fluid into the
proteoglycan molecules. This is important for two reasons; the fluid sweeps
nutrients into the cartilage and the fluid acts as a spongy shock absorber.
Chondroitin can protect existing cartilage from a premature breakdown. It

Bioflavonoids play an important role in slowing the aging process due to its
antioxidant and cytoprotective properties. They also block lipid peroxidation,
which is also linked to the aging process in cells. Bioflavonoids contain
natural antibiotic, analgesic and diuretic benefits, and possess antifungal
activity against Candida albicans.

CLOVES
DESCRIPTION:
Cloves are the rich, brown, dried, unopened flower buds of Syzygium
aromaticum, an evergreen tree in the myrtle family. The name comes from
the French "clou" meaning nail. Used in China for more than two thousand
years, legend has it that cloves are an aphrodisiac. Although there isn't any
evidence to back this claim, we do know that oil of clove is a time-honored
remedy for toothaches. Clove oil is highly antiseptic. There are many proven
benefits when using cloves: it relieves tooth pain and has an antiemetic
action that helps control vomiting.
                                                                                                  EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:
                                                                                                  Freshly ground cloves
                                                                                                  (Syzygium Aromaticum) ..............................500 mg
ACTIONS:
This herb keeps food fresh because the main active component of cloves is
eugenol, which has long been known to help kill bacteria and viruses. By
killing bacteria, eugenol helps keep meat fresh and prevents stomach upset,
traveler's diarrhea and wound infections.


Cloves are not limited to only preserving food, this is a powerful herb that
can ease tooth pain. The eugenol in cloves makes the herb effective as an
antiseptic and painkiller. Just a drop of this healing oil can ease tooth pain
until you can see a dentist.


This herb is also used for combating intestinal problems such as indigestion,
and laboratory studies have shown its effectiveness. It has been used in
Asia for thousands of years for many ailments. There is an ingredient in
cloves that fights the bacteria responsible for creating diarrhea, and has a
history as a relief for such problems.


Studies show that the oil in cloves can help kill several strains of
staphylococcus bacteria and one strain of pseudomonas-organisms that can
cause skin infections. To treat cuts, empty one capsule mixing with water to
form a paste. Apply the poultice directly to the site of the cut. Cover it with a
warm towel.


SUGGESTED USE:
Take 1 capsule daily with meals, or as directed by a physician.


SIZE:
CLOVES from Vitazan Herbs & Vitamins is available in 100 capsules of

Coconut oil is unusually rich in short and medium chain fatty acids.
Shorter chain length allows fatty acids to be metabolized without use of
the carnitine transport system. Mildronate protects cells against stress
partly by opposing the action of carnitine, and comparative studies show
that added carnitine has the opposite effect, promoting the oxidation of
unsaturated fats during stress, and increasing oxidative damage to cells.

CO-ENZYME Q10
DESCRIPTION:
Co-enzyme Q10 also called Ubiquinone, is a vitamin-like substance that
occurs naturally in the body. It is synthesized within the body but sometimes
the synthesis is impaired due to the diet, a genetic defect, age or an
increase of tissue needs; then a deficiency of the co-enzyme appears.


Co-enzyme Q10 is the only co-enzyme that is found in human tissue. It is an
essential component of the mitochondrial respiratory chain where aerobic
energy is produced. The mitochondria is part of the cells. The human body is
formed by millions of cells, every one of them performs different vital
functions. To perform properly, the cells need energy and Co-enzyme Q10 is                          EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:

Studies with patients suffering from stable angina pectoris, show           that
supplying them with 150 mg/day of Co-Q10 for four weeks, reduced the
frequency of angina attacks by 53%.The daily dosage recommended is
between 30mg to 150mg a day.




ACTIONS:
Co-enzyme Q10 should be considered in all heart disorders including
angina, deterioration of the immune system related to age and as an
excellent antioxidant.

able to inhibit the adhesion of antibiotic susceptible bacteria, but resistant
strains as well.

Early theories regarding the mechanism of action of cranberry in helping
prevent UTIs involved acidification of the urine. However, that has not been
confirmed, and evidence has been accumulating instead which indicates that

which serves as a storage reservoir for quick energy. Phosphocreatine is
especially important in tissues such as the voluntary muscles and the
nervous system that periodically require large amounts of energy.


ACTIONS:
Studies have shown that Creatine can increase the performance of athletes

Two scientific studies have indicated that Creatine may be beneficial for
neuromuscular disorders. First, a study by MDA-funded researcher M. Flint
Beal of Cornell University Medical Center demonstrated that Creatine was
twice as effective as the prescription drug riluzole in extending the lives of
mice with the degenerative neural disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease). Second, a study by Canadian researchers
Mark Tarnopolsky and Joan Martin of McMaster University Medical Center in
Ontario found that Creatine can cause modest increases in strength in
people with a variety of neuromuscular disorders. Beal's work was published
in the March 1999 issue of Nature Neuroscience and the second paper was
published in the March 1999 issue of Neurology.


The amount of phosphocreatine in the muscles of people with some
neuromuscular disorders, such as mitochondrial myopathies or inflammatory
myopathies, is lower than normal. Researchers suggest that creatine
supplementation in these people may improve muscle strength by bolstering
the muscles' energy stores.


Athletes generally take a "loading dose" of 20 grams of creatine a day for
five or six days, then continue with a "maintenance dose" of 2 to 5 grams of
creatine a day thereafter. The pilot trial reported in the March issue of
Neurology showed benefits from a 10-gram "loading dose" for five days,
followed by a 5-gram "maintenance dose" for five to six days.


Because there is little information about the safety of Creatine for people
with neuromuscular disorders, we suggest that you consult the advice from
your health professional before taking this supplement.

health.


Digestive enzymes are complex proteins involved in digestion that stimulate
chemical changes in other substances. They work optimally at specific
temperature and pH. Digestive enzymes include pancreatic enzymes,
plant-derived enzymes, and fungal-derived enzymes. There are three
classes of digestive enzymes: proteolytic enzymes needed to digest protein,
lipases needed to digest fat, and amylases needed to digest carbohydrates.
In several conditions that cause malabsorption, such as pancreatic
insufficiency and cystic fibrosis, doctors sometimes prescribe digestive                       EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:

this theory.


ACTIONS:
Proteolytic enzymes such as trypsin, chymotrypsin, and bromelain are
partially absorbed by the body. Once absorbed, they have anti-inflammatory
activity and may even demonstrate antitumour effects. In one preliminary
study of a handful of pancreatic cancer patients, the combination of
proteolytic enzymes and other cancer treatments appeared to extend
survival. Proteolytic enzymes may also improve immune system function, for

enzymes are specifically involved in the process of digestion. They are
considered proteolytic enzymes since they only work on proteins, breaking
them down into smaller peptones by hydrolysis. They break down food
particles for storage in the liver or muscles, and this storaged energy is used
later by the body.

Pepsin and Pancreatin are enzymes derived from animal enzymes. These
types of enzymes help in the digestion of food when it has reached the lower
part of the stomach and the intestinal tract. Pancreatin works better in an
alkaline medium in the small intestine. It digests fat, proteins and starch
molecules. It is used in cases of pancreatic deficiency.


Bile Salts are important in the digestion of fats and it helps to maintain the
intestine free of microorganisms.


Betaine Hydrochloride. People that suffer from arthritis rheumatoid have
a deficiency in stomach acid. Supplementation with Betaine with meals will
aid in protein digestion and possibly reduce food sensitivities through
improved digestion.
Proteolytic Enzymes have demonstrated in different clinical studies to be an
effective anti-inflammatory agent. The principal effect of these enzymes is to
reduce swelling, and help the body eliminate the immune complexes which
can be deposited in the joints. These enzymes are used to treat sport
injuries and in different ailments of the respiratory tract.

ACTIONS:
There are four major types of digestive enzymes, each responsible for its
own type of food component.


Cellulase breaks down fibre and is found only in plants and plant enzymes:
it is absent from both the pancreatic enzymes produced by your body and
from the pancreatic enzymes found in animal source digestive enzymes.


Amylase breaks down carbohydrates. There are many types of amylase.
Lactase, for example, breaks down the milk sugar, lactose, and Maltase
breaks down the malt sugar, maltose. Invertase helps digest sugar, and
Pectinase helps breakdown the fibre, pectin.

Other studies have shown little to no improvements from DMG

the Center for the Study of Autism in Salem, Oregon U.S.A involving 84
participants documented a significant decrease in behavior problems

The recommended daily dose of DMG for people with autism is between one
to four 125mg capsules for a child, and between two and eight capsules for
an adult. Initially, a person should begin with one 125mg and then increase

therapeutic window and is the least toxic of the dithiol compounds.


Studies from Frackelton JP and Christensen=s protocol suggests 500 mg per
day on an empty stomach, every other day for a minimum of five weeks. For
very sensitive patients, 250 mg per day, every other day may be necessary
with an increase to 500 mg after two to three weeks, for a total of five weeks
of therapy. Be aware that sulfhydryl compounds in DMSA will make urine
smell very sulfurous. Adequate communication with the patient regarding
this issue is important, so they are not taken by surprise.

GERMANIUM ORGANIC GE-132
DESCRIPTION:
Germanium Sesquioxide is also known as GE-132, a rare trace mineral that
is found throughout nature in many plants. In fact, many therapeutic plants
can attribute part of their medicinal value to the high concentration of this
nutrient. In the mid-1970's, Dr. Asai discovered high amounts of germanium
in plants such as aloe vera, garlic, ginseng and comfrey with the most found
in the Reishi mushroom (ganoderma lucidum). During his studies he
synthesized many germanium compounds and found bis-germanium
sesquioxide to be the most stable and nontoxic.


ACTION:
After numerous studies, it was found to have potent antioxidant and antiviral
effects with the most pronounced function being its action as a detoxifier in
heavy metal poisoning. Also studied with regard to its attributes of oxygen
                                                                                            EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:

protein interferon known to help normalize immune system function. Again,                   GMO vegetarian capsule and purified water.
consuming the organic form of germanium is very important.


Germanium helps to keep healthy individuals well. Germanium increases
tissue oxygenation (raises oxygen supply to cells) by removing hydrogen
ions which spares oxygen. (According to some sources, each atom of
germanium transports three atoms of oxygen. Dr. Asai explains the process
as dehydrogenation, which spares oxygen, which would otherwise combine
with the hydrogen to form water.) This improves the cell's ability to generate
energy. During pregnancy, it can be used as an added benefit to prevent
toxemia and to protect the health of the baby.


SUGGESTED USE:
As an addition to the daily diet, take 1 or 2 capsules daily, or as directed by a
physician.

The main active ingredients of ginseng are the more than 20 saponin
triterpenoid glycosides called ginsenosides whose names relate to their
chromatographic position (Ra, rb, etc.). Rb1 group of ginsenosides have
more sedative and metabolic effects on the central nervous system, while
the Rg1 group of ginsenosides are more arousing and stimulating at low
doses. Rb1 Ginsenosides have CNS-depressing activity, have weak anti-                                EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS :

ginseng (Korean) contains higher amounts of the more stimulating RG1
ginsenosides compared to American ginseng (Panax quinquefolium) which
has a higher amount of the more sedative Rb1 ginsenosides. Both Rg1 and
Rb1 ginsenosides act on the adrenal and pituitary glands and help them
respond to stress more rapidly.

GLUTAMIC ACID
DESCRIPTION:
Glutamic acid is a nonessential amino Acid used by the body to manufacture
human protein, a vital component of all the body's cells. This amino acid is
labeled "nonessential" because, when the acids are lacking in the diet, the
body can manufacture them. All nonessential amino acids must be on hand
before the body can synthesize protein; and several have additional, more
specialized roles as well. Biosynthesized from a number of amino acids
including ornithine and arginine, when aminated, glutamic acid forms the
                                                                                                    EACH CAPSULE CONTAIN:
important amino acid glutamine. Because it has a carboxylic acid moiety on
the side chain, glutamic acid is one of only two amino acids (the other being                       Glutamic Acid .......................... 500 mg

aspartic acid) that has a net negative charge at physiological pH. This                             In a natural base of microcrystalline

negative charge makes glutamic acid a very polar molecule and it is usually                         cellulose, vegetable magnesium

the aqueous intracellular surroundings. On a molar basis, glutamic acid is
incorporated into proteins at a rate of 6.2 percent compared to other amino
acids.


ACTION:
Being an organic compound, one of the 20 amino acids commonly found in
animal proteins. Only the L-stereoisomer occurs in mammalian proteins. Like
aspartic acid, glutamic acid has an acidic carboxyl group on its side chain,
which can serve as both an acceptor and a donor of ammonia, a compound
toxic to the body. Once glutamic acid has coupled with ammonia, it is called
glutamine and can as such safely transport ammonia to the liver, where the
ammonia is eventually converted to urea for excretion by the kidneys. Free
glutamic acid (not incorporated into proteins) can also be converted
reversibly to ketoglutaric acid, an intermediate in the Krebs cycle, and as
such can be degraded to carbon dioxide and water, or transformed into
sugars. The acidic side chain of glutamic acid confers one negative charge
under most conditions to proteins in which this amino acid is found, thus
increasing the water solubility of the protein.


SUGGESTED USE:
Take 3 to 6 capsules daily with meals, or as directed by a physician.

Proanthocyanidins are at least 15 to 25 times more powerful than vitamin E
in neutralizing the iron and oxygen species free radicals that attack lipids.


ACTION:
Grapeseed extract is used for its free radical fighting capabilities, and for a
variety of conditions related to capillary health and permeability. It is
synergistic with vitamin C - which is more potent and absorbed more rapidly
when used together with Proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins have been
indicated for : poor distribution of microcirculatory blood flow in the brain and
heart; altered capillary fragility and permeability (in diabetes mellitus);
chronic arterial/venous insufficiency in the extremities; altered platelet
aggregation and other characteristics of blood flow in capillaries; breakdown
in the elastic fibers of the capillaries (collagen and elastin) due to free radical
and enzyme action; microangiopathy of the retina, edema of the lymph
nodes, varicose veins and other symptoms of the problems listed above; the
cumulative effects of aging and reducing the risk of degenerative diseases.

fructo-oligosaccharides have additional nutritional properties on digestive
physiological parameters like colonic pH and stool bulking, which justify their
classification as dietary fibers. Inulin has also been reported to improve the
bioavailability of essential minerals and reduce serum triglyceridemia by
lowering hepatic lipogenesis. Such effects demonstrate interactions between
the chicory fructo-oligosaccharides and key functions in the body.


Inulin occur in small amounts in nature - in onion, garlic, burdock and other
vegetables, in bananas and a few other fruits, and in wheat, rye, barley, and
oats. Inulin consists of natural sugar to which an additional molecule has
been attached. The resulting molecule is too large for humans to digest.
Therefore, our tastebuds get the message, "SUGAR", yet it is essentially
non-caloric because of not being broken down.


The average daily intake of oligosaccharides by people in Canada is

estimated to be about 800 to 1,000 mg. For the promotion of healthy

bacterial flora, the usual recommendation for inulin, or FOS is 2,000 to 3,000

mg per day with meals.

ACTIONS:
Non-GMO Isoflavones have antioxidant properties that protect the
cardiovascular system from oxidation of LDL (the bad) cholesterol. Oxidized
LDL cholesterol accumulates in the arteries as patches of fatty build-up
which blocks the flow of blood, resulting in atherosclerosis. Genistein inhibits
the growth of cells that form this artery clogging plaque. Arteries damaged by
atherosclerosis usually form blood clots. This can lead to a heart attack if the
clot goes to the heart or a stroke if it goes to the brain.                                           INGREDIENTS:

Non-GMO Isoflavones in preventing, and possibly even reversing, the effects
of osteoporosis.

The North American Menopause Society suggests that Non-GMO
Isoflavones can also be a natural alternative to hormone replacement
therapy, which in many cases has been proven to be cancerous. Isoflavones
may help offset the drop in estrogen levels and regulate their fluctuations that
occur at menopause. Many women have reported a reduction in their hot
flashes and night sweats when they regularly consume Non-GMO
Isoflavones.

L-CYSTEINE
DESCRIPTION:
L-Cysteine can be obtained from dietary protein or synthesized from the
amino acid L-methionine. It is directly depleted by cigarette smoking, the
depletion of which may be partially related to the faster aging of skin in
smokers. L-Cysteine can act as an antioxidant and may prevent liver
diseases.


L-Cysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid, which together with glycine and                             EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:

glutamic acid forms the all-important antioxidant glutathione. L-Cysteine                                 L-Cysteine ..................................500 mg

contributes to the formation of protein in our bodies. It plays a role in energy
metabolism, both by being able to convert to glucose and be used as fuel,
also by playing a part in the synthesis of fatty acids. It acts in the liver to help
detoxify carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals.


ACTION:
Cysteine is essential for T-cell proliferation and activation in your immune
system. Cysteine is a major component of skin, hair, and fingernails. Studies
show that Cysteine supplementation can increase hair shaft diameter and
hair growth density in some cases of hair loss.


L-Cysteine may be used to:


&    Help with skin health;
&    Stop hair loss and aid hair growth;
&    Aid wound healing from injuries, burns, or surgery;
&    Help protect us from the adverse effects of alcohol consumption,
     cigarette smoking, and other chemicals;
&    Support the liver when there are liver disorders;
&    Enhance absorption of iron;
&    Ameliorate chemical sensitivity reactions;
&    Promote the production of red and white blood cells;
     &       Support cartilage (as a precursor to chondroitin sulfate).


SUGGESTED USE:
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule daily with meals, or as directed by a
physician.

ACTION:
L-Glutamin seems to decreased catabolism (The Breakdown of Muscle
Tissue). Catabolism occurs when glutamine leaves the muscle causing the
cells   to   discharge   water    and   become      dehydrated.    L-Glutamine
supplementation ensures that high levels of glutamine are maintained within
the cells meaning no discharge of water or catabolism. Supplementation
prevents glutamine depletion in muscles after workouts. Under periods of
stress, including hard and intensive workouts, your body may not be able to
make all of the glutamine that it requires. Studies have shown that
supplementing with L-Glutamine is effective in the replacement of these
declining levels.


L-Glutamine elevates growth hormone levels. Also, it has been shown that
L-Glutamine supplementation can have a positive effect on growth hormone
levels. A recent study has shown that a small 2 gram oral dose of L-
Glutamine caused an increase in growth hormone levels by over 430%. A
brief review of the literature on this topic, and a comparison of the results
obtained in children by administrating L-Glutamine with those obtained by
other antidepressive drugs, is primarily presented. Having been tested in a
sampler of 43 adults, affected by different forms of depressive, neurasthenic
and dissociative illnesses, L-Glutamine is indicated as owning clear anti-
depressive properties, and the asthenia as target-symptom for its
therapeutical use. Out of the endogenous depression with slowed-down
motor activity, indeed good results were found in all cases, in which a vital
level had been reached by the illness. Since L-Glutamine is noticed being a
precursor of GABA, this fact itself could explain its antidepressive properties.

Histidine can convert to histamine, which is a major neurotransmitter in your
brain and throughout parts of your nervous system. However, histidine
intake does not always increase brain histamine. Low brain histamine levels
are associated with hyperactivity, mania, paranoia, hallucinations, and
abnormal thoughts. Many brain functions of histamine are poorly understood
but it is thought to participate in the secretion of 2 hormones, (prolactin and
antidiuretic). It is thought to aid temperature regulation and be involved in the
control of automatic nerve response in the central nervous system.


Vitamin E deficiency will cause the depletion of histidine from muscles.
Histidine is involved with the regulation of zinc levels in your body. If zinc is
excessive it will lower histidine; if histidine is excessive it will decrease zinc
levels. But appropriate levels of histidine enhance zinc levels.


ACTION:
L-Histidine enhances wound healing, essential for tissue growth and repair,
and is helpful with rheumatoid arthritis. It is important for red blood cell
health. Deficiency will cause decreased hemoglobin and hematocrit,
ultimately leading to anemia. L-histidine also helps store glucose in your liver
and when converted to histamine is the chemical responsible for triggering
orgasms. Histamines play a major role in regulating ejaculations and
orgasms and is a vasodilator, which allows blood to flow to the genital areas
more easily.

As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule daily with meals, or as directed by
a physician.

L-TAURINE
DESCRIPTION:
L-Taurine is a specialized amino acid which is an ion. It acts as a pH buffer
in the heart, skeletal muscles and central nervous system. L-Taurine is a
nonprotein amino acid that is the end product of L-cysteine metabolism and
the principle free intracellular amino acid found in human tissue. The most                             EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:
understood role of L-Taurine in humans is its involvement in the formation of                           L-Taurine .......................................... 500 mg
Taurine bile acids conjugated in the liver. These acids are essential for
micelle formation and fat absorption. L-Taurine is an important component in
bile, which acting like soap, helps your body break down fats and fat soluble
vitamins.
Bile is also used to control cholesterol levels. Recent research indicates
taurine's role as an important nerve and muscle interaction regulator. Clinical
studies in humans have demonstrated beneficial effects in congestive heart
failure, diabetes, and seizure disorders. Diabetics are known to have lower
levels of taurine. Taurine improves the utilization of sugar and potentiates
the action of insulin. It is also used for its beneficial effects on eye and heart
health. 1/8 tsp has 350 mg. Recommended dosage: 250 mg to 3 gm per
day. L-Taurine is also used in the construction of all the other amino acids.
Furthermore, L-Taurine is involved in pre/post-natal nervous and visual
system development.


ACTION:
L-Taurine has antioxidant, membrane stabilization activities and may
decrease insulin resistance.Taurine is also a potent antioxidant and
antitoxin, and in these roles is particularly important to the liver and immune
system. This amino acid L-Taurine is not as easily found in animal meat as
other amino acids and it must either be synthesized by your body or taken in
supplement form. L-Taurine synthesis requires L-Cysteine and vitamin B6,
both of which are not always present in sufficient quantities. Deficiencies in
L-Taurine can lead to epilepsy, anxiety, hyperactivity and poor brain
function.


SUGGESTED USE:
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule daily with a meal.

SIZE:
L-TAURINE from Vitazan Herbs & Vitamins is available in 90 capsules of
500 mg (code 752).

serves several crucial roles inside your body. It helps turn food to energy
and helps to transmit neuromuscular impulses across nerves and muscles.
Magnesium also helps in energy production, development of body tissue and
bone growth. Inadequate supply magnesium results in muscle cramps.

reactions, including normal insulin receptor function, bone mineralization,
blood pressure, heart rhythm, and muscle and nerve function. Adequate

studies suggest that the citrate salt of magnesium is the best type absorbed
into the bloodstream. Magnesium Citrate is vital to hundreds of enzyme
reactions and has more health benefits attributed to it than any other mineral
including calcium. Magnesium Citrate, along with calcium, act as a buffer,
helping to prevent the body from experiencing excessive stress.


ACTION:
Magnesium Citrate is an important electrolyte that helps the absorption and
movement of calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium in and out of the
cells, which help generate nerve impulses with the help of L-Taurine. This
maintains the correct composition of bile, and in maintaining the solubility of
cholesterol helps proper digestion of fat-soluble vitamins to make them more
bioavailable. It has been found to have an effect on blood sugar levels
similar to insulin. L-Taurine helps to stabilize cell membranes and seems to
have some antioxidant and detoxifying activity. This amino acid helps the
nervous system to function properly. It does this as mentioned earlier by
aiding the movement of potassium, calcium and magnesium in and out of
the cells that help generate nerve impulses. Taurine is also essential for the
proper digestion of fats and the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.


Magnesium is required for the B vitamins to work properly and is absolutely
necessary for the utilization of thiamine. Magnesium Citrate is necessary for
growth and development, wound healing, immune system function,
temperature regulation and many activities of the brain and nervous system.
Shaky hands, nervousness, muscle spasms, irregular or rapid heartbeat, all
respond favourably to magnesium.

L-CYSTEINE
DESCRIPTION:
L-Cysteine can be obtained from dietary protein or synthesized from the
amino acid L-methionine. It is directly depleted by cigarette smoking, the
depletion of which may be partially related to the faster aging of skin in
smokers. L-Cysteine can act as an antioxidant and may prevent liver
diseases.


L-Cysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid, which together with glycine and                             EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:

glutamic acid forms the all-important antioxidant glutathione. L-Cysteine                                 L-Cysteine ..................................500 mg

contributes to the formation of protein in our bodies. It plays a role in energy
metabolism, both by being able to convert to glucose and be used as fuel,
also by playing a part in the synthesis of fatty acids. It acts in the liver to help
detoxify carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals.


ACTION:
Cysteine is essential for T-cell proliferation and activation in your immune
system. Cysteine is a major component of skin, hair, and fingernails. Studies
show that Cysteine supplementation can increase hair shaft diameter and
hair growth density in some cases of hair loss.


Cysteine may be used to:


&    Help with skin health;
&    Stop hair loss and aid hair growth;
&    Aid wound healing from injuries, burns, or surgery;
&    Help protect us from the adverse effects of alcohol consumption,
     cigarette smoking, and other chemicals;
&    Support the liver when there are liver disorders;
&    Enhance absorption of iron;
&    Ameliorate chemical sensitivity reactions;
&    Promote the production of red and white blood cells;
     &       Support cartilage (as a precursor to chondroitin sulfate).

bad, dysfunctional cells, deficient in the basic nutrients that constitute a
healthy cell. MSM has a volatile nature, and is quickly lost from food when it
is processed, cooked and/or stored. With today=s modern diet of cooked and
otherwise processed and diluted foods, most, if not all diets, are deficient in
this critically important nutrient.


Sulfur is essential for numerous electrochemical, catalytic and structural
functions in human metabolism. Sulfur is a key component of MSM, which
helps connective tissues, joints, skin and is needed for enzyme activity,
hormone balance, and function of the immune system. As a central
component of collagen and connective tissue, sulfur assists the body in
preventing inflammation and facilitating repair of connective tissues.


MSM is a penetrant. It is absorbed through the skin very quickly and easily.
MSM is also a great detoxifier. MSM is a great source of "methyl groups"
and it is "methyl groups" which are needed for the immune system to
function. The skin is the largest area of the body that interfaces with bacteria
and "problems" from the environment. It is the first line of defense for the
body. There are, of course, immune system functions that take place within
the skin area, and only the very small arteries (capillaries) nourish the skin
area. The blood supply at the surface of the skin is not as great as it is
further inside the body. When you apply something on the skin which
"nourishes" the immune system cells there, you are doing wonders to
improve the health of the skin (and body) and you are not curing or
preventing a disease other than through the natural function of the body (the
immune system).

fighting viruses. It is commonly used to help break down mucus and to
protect from acetaminophen toxicity. In addition, it helps the body to
synthesize the antioxidant glutathione. NAC helps to reduce plasma cell
adhesion in Type 2 diabetes patients. While NAC does reduce the amount of
damage caused to the lungs by cigarette smoking, it does not completely
protect them from damage. NAC is effective in the treatment of lung damage                          EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS :

protectant and appears effective in reducing complications related to liver
transplants.


ACTION:
The amino acid N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) appears to inhibit HIV replication in
a laboratory setting. Supplementation appears to slow the decline of immune
functions in HIV patients. When used with Glutamine, it helps in the
production of glutathione, an antioxidant and peptide (short protein like)
molecule synthesized in the body from the three amino acids L-glutamic
acid, L-cysteine, and glycine.


Glutathione is one of the body's most important and powerful antioxidants. A
major function of vitamin C is to keep glutathione, L-cysteine, and N-acetyl-
cysteine in reduced form so that they can continue to have their powerful
free radical quenching effects which appear to be helpful in preventing
infection in HIV patients. The supplement N-acetyl-cysteine appears to
minimize the severity of influenza infection. Subjects taking 500 mg twice
daily experience far fewer and less severe symptoms when they become
infected with the flu. N-acetyl-cysteine is the more effective and used form of
the amino acid L-cysteine. NAC acts as an antioxidant and is useful against
viruses.


We recommend that vitamin C be taken in double doses while taking N-
acetyl-cysteine, up to 5000 mg over a 24 hour period. Failure to do so
results in an abundant amount of oxidized L-cysteine which, over time, may
create more harm than good.


SUGGESTED USE:
Take 1 capsule daily before meals on an empty stomach, or as directed by a
physician.

Perhaps, Pau D=arco Taheebo=s most impressive use may be its reputation
for fighting cancer. Since 1960, medical doctors in South America, at the
Santo Andre hospital, have used Pau D=arco Taheebo to treat terminally ill
cancer patients. Well-known herbalists report that Pau D=arco Taheebo

Pau D=arco Taheebo uses are many. It is also used to treat ulcers, diabetes,
rheumatism, ring worm, bronchitis and other respiratory problems,
gonorrhea,     hemorrhages,       cystitis,   colitis,   gastritis,   Parkinson=s,
arteriosclerosis, Hodgkin=s, lupus, polyps, prostatis, leucorrhea, candida,
endometriosis, fibroids, cysts, growths and tumors, anemia and inflammation
of the urinary tract, just to mention some of this incredible herb=s uses.


Its anticancerous properties were first attributed to a phytochemical found in
the bark and wood called lapachol. In a 1968 study, lapachol demonstrated
highly significant activity against cancerous tumors in rats. Another research
group developed a lapachol analog in 1975 which was effective in increasing
the life span by over 80% in mice inoculated with leukemic cells. In a small
study in 1980 with nine patients with various cancers (liver, kidney, breast,
prostate and cervix), pure lapachol demonstrated an ability to shrink tumors
and achieved complete remissions in three of the patients.


Pau D=arco Taheebo is known to eliminate toxins in the body and purify the
blood. In an original weight loss research study performed in Chicago in
1992, women=s chronic yeast infections cleared up promptly when Pau
D=arco Taheebo was added to the formula. Pau D=arco Taheebo also has
anti-inflammatory characteristics, making it useful in the treatment of arthritis
and other inflammatory diseases.

ACTION:

converting blood sugar into glycogen, the storage form of blood sugar in the
muscles and liver. A shortage of potassium results in lower levels of stored
glycogen, which can hinder exercise due to the rapid depletion of energy. A

signs of potassium deficiency.


Excessive fluid loss through sweating, diarrhea or urination is a common
cause of potassium deficiency. Athletes, people who regularly exercise, or
those working in warm environments can lose up to three grams of
potassium a day through perspiration. Diuretic medicines, which are
designed to rid the kidneys of excess fluid and help sodium, can also cause
potassium deficiencies. Where sodium goes, potassium does too, and so
potassium needs to be replenished.
The proper potassium and sodium balance in food is important, as is the
proper balance of potassium and sodium consumption. One of the most
common problems is too much sodium in the diet, thus disrupting the
balance. Many studies demonstrate that a low-potassium, high-sodium diet
plays a major role in the development of cancer and cardiovascular disease.
A diet low in sodium and high in potassium, not surprisingly, protects against
these diseases.

has been used by many tribes of peoples indigenous to this region,
stretching from British-Columbia to California, as a remedy for constipation
and upset stomachs. Cascara Sagrada is known worldwide as a natural mild
laxative that works.


Turkish Rhubarb, in small doses, makes an excellent strengthening tonic
for the stomach. In large doses, it acts as a laxative. Rhubarb root's
purgative action is useful in constipation, but also has an astringent effect
following this. It therefore has a truly cleansing action on the gut, removing
debris and has antiseptic properties as well.


Licorice, the grandfather of Chinese herbs, is mostly used as a flavoring for
candy, cough drops, syrups, tonics and laxatives. Licorice is included in
most herb combinations to balance the other herbs and to promote vitality. It
is a source of magnesium, silicon and thiamine. Besides being a mild
aperient (laxative) itself, it helps to counterbalance the discomforting effects
that may result from laxative use. It provides a mild boost to the adrenal
system that may be stressed in certain debilitating conditions for which
laxatives are often suggested. Most importantly, Licorice root protects and
heals distressed mucous membranes of the intestinal tract.

other studies have suggested that plant sterols can protect against colon

placebo group, there was absolutely no drop in the group receiving the
sterols and sterolins. As in the AIDS research, the beta-sitosterols showed
the ability to raise the important CD3 and CD4 immunity cells while they
dropped in the placebo group. Also, while inflammation and stress went up
in the athletes on a placebo, they went down in the marathoners on sterols
and sterolins.


What's more, beta-sitosterols are incredibly safe. Though many of the
exciting properties of this amazing supplement are newly discovered and
cutting edge, the beta-sitosterols are natural supplements that have been
used for a long time for benign prostate hyperplasia and high cholesterol and
are known to be completely safe. They are non-toxic, possess no known
drug interactions and can even be used by pregnant and nursing women.

Specific scientific evidence suggest that plant sterols help to lower
cholesterol levels within the normal range when consumed as part of a low

vitamin B2 is sometimes referred to as "activated riboflavin" because of
its fast-acting effects in the body. Riboflavin-5-phosphate is rapidly
hydrolyzed         to    yield     riboflavin     after   ingestion;     riboflavin   and
riboflavin-5-phosphate are in metabolic equilibrium after absorption.
Riboflavin-5'-phosphate is the prosthetic group of flavoproteins involved
in general cell metabolism as hydrogen acceptors.

Vitamin B5 is a water-soluble, B Complex vitamin. B5 was discovered                      Take 1 to 2 tablets daily with meals, or as directed by a physician.
and named in 1939 when it was isolated from rice husks. Vitamin B5 is
named for the Greek word Panthos that means "everywhere".                                SIZE:
Pantothenic Acid is found more or less everywhere, from plants and
animals to humans. Natural sources of B5 include: eggs, meats, whole
                                                                                         B5 D=PANTOTHENIC ACID from Vitazan Herbs & Vitamins is available

                                                                                         in 90 tablets of 1000 mg (code 100).
from the foods we eat. B5 also plays a role in tissue generation, creation
of antibodies and the healing process.


ACTIONS:
Vitamin B5 plays an important role in the secretion of hormones, such as
                                                                                            EACH TABLET CONTAINS:
cortisone because of the role it plays in supporting the adrenal gland.                     Vitamin B5 D’Pantothenic acid (calcium pantothenate) .. 500 mg
These hormones assist the metabolism, help to fight allergies and are
beneficial in the maintenance of healthy skin, muscles and nerves.
Pantothenic acid is also used in the release of energy as well as the
metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates. It is used in the creation of
lipids, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones and hemoglobin. Pantothenic
acid is also helpful to fight wrinkles as well as graying of the hair.


Deficiency of vitamin B5
When vitamin B5 is in short supply, symptoms like fatigue, headaches,
nausea, tingling in the hands, depression, personality changes and
cardiac instability are reported.


Frequent infection, fatigue, abdominal pains, sleep disturbances and
neurological disorders including numbness, paresthesia (abnormal
sensation such as "burning feet" syndrome), muscle weakness and
cramps are also possible indications that this nutrient is in short supply.


Biochemical changes include increased insulin sensitivity, lowered blood
cholesterol,    decreased      serum      potassium,      and     failure     of
adrenocorticotropin to induce eosinopenia.


Nutritionists categorize vitamins by the materials that they dissolve in.
There are two categories: water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins. Water-
soluble vitamins, which include the B-complex group and vitamin C,
travel through the bloodstream. Whatever water-soluble vitamins are not
used by the body are eliminated in urine, which means you need a
continuous supply of them in your food. Vitamin B5 is a water-soluble
vitamin.

ACTION:
It's not yet clear why Folic Acid reduces homocysteine levels preventing
NTDs and cardiovascular disease. Usually excess homocysteine is quickly
processed by your liver and turned into another amino acid you do need, or
it's broken down to be excreted C a kind of clean-up process. This

mutation of the gene that controls the homocysteine clean-up process.
People with that gene defect have high homocysteine levels and are at
greater risk of having babies with NTDs.


As for your heart, too much homocysteine may damage your arterial walls,
allowing fatty plaque deposits to clog your arteries and promote blood
clotting. A study published in the journal Circulation found women younger
than 45 years were at increased risk of cardiovascular disease if they had

DESCRIPTION:
This formula has the following ingredients: vitamin C, vitamin A, lemon
bioflavonoids and Cayenne powder. It is a vitamin supplement with a great
amount of antioxidant properties.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant. It is required for tissue growth and repair; it is
essential in the formation of collagen. It is well-known as an stimulator of the
immune system, especially in the prevention and treatment of the common                             EACH TABLET CONTAINS:

Vitamin C has many biochemical effects very similar to interferon. It is
needed for the metabolism of folic acid. It is important to provide the body
with bioflavonoids at the same time as vitamin C since these compounds
potentiate vitamin C's effects.


Vitamin A is an antioxidant. It enhances inmunity, protects against pollution
and it is essential for epithelial tissue maintenance and repair.


It also protects against colds, influenza and infections, and it is important for
the formation of bones and teeth. It plays an essential role in maintaining the
integrity of the lining of the respiratory tract and its secretions. If there is an
insufficient amount of this vitamin in the body, protein can not be utilized.


Lemon Bioflavonoids are compounds found closely associated to vitamin
C in therapy. They are also directly antiviral and are good for inflammatory
conditions, controlling directly the factors involved in inflammation. They also
increase the effectiveness and levels of vitamin C.


Cayenne is a good stimulant for the blood; it improves circulation and it acts
as a catalyst for all herbs.


SUGGESTED USE:
Take 1 tablet daily with meals, or as directed by a physician.


SIZE:
Vitamin C plus A from Vitazan Herbs & Vitamins is available in
100 tablets (code 400).
