JOINT COMFORT

Joint health formula supplemented with antioxidants for better comfort

90 tablets

Made in USA

Key Benefits

  • Helps to reduce joint discomfort
  • Protects joints from natural degeneration
  • Replenishes necessary nutrients for cartilage building, even as we age
  • Added antioxidants for to reduce oxidative stress in joints

Introduction

Cartilage lubricates and cushions our joints

A healthy joint is one that is well lubricated with cartilage. Cartilage is a connective tissue with a gelatinous texture. It reduces friction during movement in a joint, providing bones that form the joint a smooth surface to glide against.

Cartilage also acts as a shock absorber, allowing our joints to successfully withstand impact during motion. Without cartilage acting as a cushion and absorbing the force of impact, bone on bone contact will occur and result in pain.

Both properties of cartilage allow our joints to remain both flexible yet strengthened.

 

Joint discomfort has no age

Joint discomfort is caused by the degeneration of cartilage, resulting in stiffness and pain.

Young individuals who are overly involved in active sports can also suffer from wear and tear of cartilage. In particular sports like tennis, sprinting, skipping, hiking, gymnastics, exert a large impact on our weight-bearing joints (hip, knees and ankles). Mature individuals too naturally experience this problem due to accumulated usage of joints.

Hence, cartilage degeneration resulting in joint discomfort can happen to both young and old, limiting range of motion and decreasing mobility. As such, we are forced to limit or totally cut down on these activities we enjoy.


Product Description

Joint Comfort helps us to continue enjoying our favourite activities – Containing the necessary nutrients for cartilage building!

Joint Comfort contains two important active ingredients, namely Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulphate.

Glucosamine is a key ingredient for supplementing cartilage building. As noted in research studies, Glucosamine may play a critical role in promoting and maintaining the structure and function of cartilage in the joints of our body.*

Complementing Glucosamine is Chondroitin Sulphate. As a major constituent of cartilage, Chondroitin Sulphate provides structure, holds water and nutrients, allows other key molecules to move through cartilage and inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage.

The combined efficacy of Glucosamine Sulphate and Chondroitin Sulphate is noted to help relieve joint discomfort at a faster rate and nourishes our joints to function for a longer duration.

Added antioxidants reduce oxidative stress in joints

A decreased level of antioxidants have been found in joints affected by osteoarthritis*. Joint Comfort has added antioxidants in the form of Vitamins A, B6, C and E to help reduce damaging oxidative stress in our joints.

With Joint Comfort, we can continue to engage in our daily undertakings in our best physical form!

LIQUI CAL/MAG

A revolutionary liquid supplement to boost your daily Calcium needs

30 softgels

Made in USA

Key Benefits

  • Maintains healthy bones and teeth
  • Enhances development of healthy muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage for better physical dexterity
  • Aids in relaxing muscles and eases lethargy
  • Assists in the absorption of important minerals from foods
  • Increases the delivery of minerals to weight-bearing areas

Introduction

Calcium and Magnesium are essential minerals our body requires:

A major proportion of our bones are made up of Calcium

The most prominent role of Calcium would be in maintaining good bone health. 99% of our body’s Calcium is channelled into forming strong bones and teeth. Besides being a major constituent of bone and teeth, Calcium is also required in other important body processes, such as blood clotting and muscle contraction.


Inadequate Calcium can lead to osteoporosis and possible immobility

As we age, our bones lose density, become more brittle and their ability to bear our body’s weight decreases. Osteoporosis could develop and this exposes us to a higher risk of fracture with falls, leading to possible immobility.

The most common cause of such problems would be inadequate supply of Calcium to keep our bones strong and healthy.


Magnesium facilitates absorption of minerals for bone building

Magnesium also plays a vital role in bone development. It stimulates the effective absorption of important minerals that help in bone building, from the food we consume. Examples of such minerals include Vitamin D, Phosphorous and Calcium.

Energy production, synthesis of new cells, fatty acid formation require Magnesium

Magnesium aids in relieving muscle tension and eases lethargy through creating ATP, which is the energy molecule our body runs on. In addition, it is involved in the making of new cells, activation of B-group vitamins, fatty acid formation and various other major biological processes *.

* As published in PDR for Nutritional Supplements, Medical Economics Company, Inc., Montvale, NJ, 2001, Pg 74 & 288.


Product Description

Insufficient Calcium consumption through our diets

Often, we do not consume enough calcium. A single serving of dairy products (a glass of milk, 1 cup of yoghurt, 2 cups of cottage cheese), provides only about one third of the recommended daily amount of Calcium. Non-dairy sources such as tofu, green leafy vegetables and nuts provide even less than the above amounts.

 

Calcium is not easily absorbed and is highly dependent on Magnesium for its effective absorption

Calcium is not an easy nutrient that is easily absorbed by our bodies.

It is only best absorbed only when Magnesium levels present are sufficient. If there is a lack of Magnesium in our bodies, the consumption of Calcium supplements will be futile as the Calcium will not be properly absorbed.

 

Liqui Cal/Mag contains the golden ratio of Calcium: Magnesium

Hence, Liqui Cal/Mag is carefully formulated with a Calcium to Magnesium ratio of 2.5:1, a golden ratio that ensures sufficient amounts of Magnesium available, to promote the effective absorption of Calcium.

 

Unique TriCal liquid formula Calcium and Magnesium allows maximum absorbability

Additionally, Liqui Cal/Mag’s unique liquid formula allows for high solubility, enabling our bodies’ maximum absorption of both these minerals.

Using Calcium obtained from 3 different calcium compounds (TriCal™), Liqui Cal/Mag’s TriCal™ formulation is gentler on the stomach, while at the same time maintaining its optimal potency.

 

Contains key ingredients, Boron and Vitamin D, that maximise Calcium efficacy

Other key active ingredients which Liqui Cal/Mag contains include Boron and Vitamin D. Vitamin D enhances the absorption of Calcium while Boron supports the proper metabolism of Calcium and Magnesium.


Active Ingredients

Calcium (TriCal™ containing Calcium Gluconate, Citrate and Carbonate), Magnesium (oxide), Boron, Vitamin D

Directions & Enhanced Effects

Directions

Adults: Take 1 to 2 softgels daily after food.

Pregnant and lactating mothers are recommended for consumption of Liqui Cal/Mag to prevent leeching from mother’s bones and produce quality milk for the newborn baby.

 

For Enhanced Effects

To further maintain good bone and joint health, take with Joint Comfort and PhosChol 565.







DORS

Imperial health formula for strength and vitality

30 capsules

Made in Singapore

Key Benefits

  • Maintains harmonious balance of internal system
  • Helps nourish our core organs
  • Revitalises body functions and boost energy flow
  • Supports natural resistance and well being
  • Improves circulation from within
  • Facilitates quicker clearance of bio-wastes and toxins

Introduction

Holistic approach to good health through Traditional Chinese Medicine

For centuries, the Art of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been a well-kept secret. Thankfully, modernisation has allowed us to become increasingly aware of the benefits that TCM offers.

Taking a holistic approach to healing, this method emphasises a harmonious balance of our internal system. Only when our vital organs’ achieve a balance of yin and yang, can we then enjoy good health.

Additionally, an effective flow of ‘Qi’ (Energy) and ‘Xue’ (Blood) in our Meridians is necessary to ensure circulation in our body is kept optimal.


Product Description

DORS is the acronym for Dynastic Organs Revitaliser System, an ancient imperial herbal formula.

 

Restorative properties of DORS – Regaining strength and vitality

With its strong restorative properties, DORS is highly effective for individuals who have a weaker constitution, or for those who are looking to make progress in recovery of their health.

Through DORS’ ability to nourish our core organs, our body functions can be revitalised and our energy flows will gain an improved boost. Hence, DORS is essential in the process of helping us regain strength and vitality!

 

Maintenance of internal balance for good health

DORS is also suitable to be taken on a regular basis for maintenance of body functions in healthy individuals.

Due to our busy modern lifestyle and increasing levels of stress, our internal system often fails to achieve a healthy balance. DORS’ helps maintain our internal system in a harmonious balance, supporting our natural resistance and well-being. This makes us less prone to illness and diseases.

 

Enhances circulation within Meridians

Based on the fundamentals of TCM, Meridians are invisible channels through which our body carries energy to every organ and system.

Stress and unhealthy eating habits hamper the flow of energy throughout these channels. Additionally, our sedentary lifestyles lack sufficient exercise, resulting in less than satisfactory blood and nutrient circulation. DORS enhances internal circulation, hence keeping an upbeat flow of energy and beneficial nutrients through our Meridian channels.

 

Quicker clearance of bio-wastes and toxins

An improved internal circulation with DORS facilitates the quicker clearance of toxins and bio-wastes that have accumulated in our body. This leaves us feeling cleansed and refreshed.

 

Potent herbal formula packed into a convenient capsule

Brewing herbs can be a tedious affair, and improper boiling methods can damage the valuable active ingredients found in the herbs. In addition, these herbal brews often have a strong bitter taste. Hence, consuming herbal brews on a regular basis might not be a feasible option. DORS has its potent herbal formula conveniently packed into capsule form. Modern production techniques concentrate the herbal extracts, ensuring that the full spectrum of valuable ingredients are obtained. With this unique combination of ancient Eastern herbs and Western technology, DORS brings to us the very best from imperial times.

ONE PLUS A DAY

Vegetarian-friendly multi-vitamin and mineral formula for optimal body performance

60 tablets

Made in USA

Key Benefits

  • Assists in cell repair and regeneration
  • Facilitates the conversion of food to energy, carbohydrates etc.
  • Enhances our body’s natural resistance
  • Promotes optimal body performance

Introduction

The importance of Vitamins and Minerals

An appropriate daily intake of vitamins and minerals is highly beneficial for health. Such nutrients are crucial for our bodies to perform at an optimal level. Processes like cell repair, cell regeneration, energy production and immunity strengthening can be kept in good functioning order.

Lacking these vitamins and minerals hinders the effective functioning of these processes, causing us to feel easily tired, lethargic and be more susceptible to common illnesses. Our skin could also appear dull and lack the healthy glow. Hence, we need to ensure our bodies have a daily constant, renewed supply of these vitamins and minerals for optimal function.

 


Why would our bodies benefit from taking a Multi-Vitamin and Mineral supplement?

Difficult to consume a wide variety of fruits and vegetables

13 different vitamins and 17 different minerals make up the complete list of nutrients that our body requires to function effectively. However, we need to consume 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables on a daily basis to sufficiently supply that amount.

More often than not, it is difficult for us to consume such a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, and our bodies still lack adequate nutrients.


Over-processing of foods and unhealthy diets

Cooking process (reheating, drying, microwaving) and poor handling methods (improper storage, exposure to sunlight heat and air) largely deplete the nutrients naturally found in foods.

Our diets can be less than healthy, with the inclusion of highly processed foods (deli meats, sausages), fatty fast food, sweet carbonated drinks and caffeine. All these can hinder our body’s absorption of vitamins and minerals.


Modern lifestyle factors add stress to our body

Our increasing modern lifestyle exposes our bodies to high levels of stress and pollution. In addition, we could further tax our bodies with alcohol and cigarettes.

These factors put an extra load on our bodies and render us nutrient deficient. Hence many of us would largely benefit from a daily supplement high in vitamins and minerals.


Product Description

An effective supplement that ensures our bodies obtains the necessary vitamins and minerals it needs

Packing all of the relevant vitamins and minerals into one convenient tablet, One Plus A Day ensures our bodies receive the appropriate amount of essential nutrients to meet the recommended daily requirements.



These vital nutrients help improve our bodies’ internal processes and enhance our natural immune system. We can thus look forward to enjoying better overall health and wellness.

 

 

Vegetarian-friendly formulation makes One Plus A Day a preferred choice for vegetarians

Made with a vegetarian-friendly formula, One Plus A Day is a helpful supplement in particular for vegetarians. It helps them achieve their daily vitamin and mineral needs, as they lack nutrients that can be obtained from consuming poultry, dairy products and seafood.


Active Ingredients

Directions & Enhanced Effects

Directions

Take one tablet a day after meals.

 

For Enhanced Effects

To further strengthen the body against lethargy, take with PhosChol 565.





i-CARE

Tasty support for vision health

β-carotene 1mg, Anthocyanins 12mg, Lutein 6mg.
10 sticks

Made in Korea

Key Benefits

  • Enhances eye health and reduce eye fatigue
  • Maintains good day vision and promote better night vision
  • Helps prevent eye diseases such as cataracts and age macular degeneration
  • Best vision support with researched ingredients at established doses
  • Easy-to-take powder-form in tasty berry flavour

Introduction

Overworking our eyes – Computer Vision Syndrome

With technology playing an integral role in our lives, we spend a good amount of time looking at the screens of our smartphones, computers and televisions.

Often we neglect to take appropriate breaks in between to rest and rejuvenate our eyes. This puts stress on our eyes and can result in Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Symptoms include eyestrain, burning and tired eyes, dry and irritated eyes, blurry or doubled vision and headaches.

Those that are more prone to developing CVS include working adults, children and preteens as they tend to overwork their eyes with heavy usage of various technological gadgets.

 

Age-related eye degeneration

Our eyes, just like other body organs, are susceptible to age-related eye diseases. The most common age related eye problems are macular degeneration and formation of cataracts. Both result in a gradual loss of vision and eventually lead to blindness.

 


Product Description

i-Care supports eye health - effectively cares for our vision

Our eyes are extremely important in allowing us to function in our various daily activities, from reading to driving. A decrease in vision would hinder us from carrying out these activities normally.

To support our increased demands on our eyes and to slow down the onset of age related eye diseases, it is important to include an effective eye supplement like i-Care into our diets.

 


Formulated with 3 main active ingredients:

ß-Carotene helps improve night vision

ß-Carotene is a main component of light-sensitive pigments, rhodopsins, in the retina. Rhodopsins help us see in limited light conditions, for example, during the night. Hence, sufficient levels of available ß-Carotene ensures an adequate formation of rhodopsins for improved night vision.


Lutein reduces cataract risk and retards macular degeneration

Cataract formation is caused by the deposition of oxidised proteins onto the crystalline lenses in our eyes. Being an antioxidant, Lutein minimises the oxidation of such proteins and thus reduces the risk of cataract.

Lutein also helps to filter blue light that damages the retina and macula, which causes age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). ARMD results in loss of vision in the centre of the visual field. Left untreated, the area where sight is lost may enlarge, leading to eventual blindness. Regular consumption of lutein can help to retard this process.


Anthocyanins maintains collagen in the eyeballs

Anthocyanins decrease the breakdown of collagen in the eyes. Collagen is a major component of the eyeball and the blood vessels that supply blood and nutrients to the eye tissues.

A constant supply of anthocyanins keeps them strengthened and they remain nicely elastic, so that their functions can be optimised for enhanced eye health.

In addition, anthocyanins also have an anti-oxidative effect, helping to improve night vision and preventing cataracts.


Easy to take tasty berry powder

Formulated with a tasty berry flavour, i-Care comes in an easy-to-take fine powdered form. This makes i-Care an ideal eye support supplement for all ages young to old!


Active Ingredients

ß-carotene, Lutein (from standardised marigold extract), Anthocyanins (from standardised bilberry extract)


Directions & Enhanced Effects

Directions

Take 1 stick daily, with or without water.

Introduction

Cellular health is the main determinant for a healthy body

Cells are fundamental units of life. The human body is composed of trillions of cells. Cellular health is the main determinant for a healthy body.

However, nowadays, toxins, including chemicals and pollutants are all around us! They are in our air, food, water, drugs – almost everywhere! By triggering oxidative stress in the cells, toxins can cause inflammation, cell damage and even cell death.

When our cells are damaged, the functioning of our body tissues and organs will become compromised, resulting in a host of health conditions, diseases or even an increased risk of cancer.

 

SGS, the Broccoli secret that makes it a Superfood!

Broccoli is well known to be healthy. But what is it that makes it a Superfood?

In 1992, scientists at Johns Hopkins unlocked the secret! The scientists identified SGS (Sulforaphane Glucosinolate, also known as Glucoraphanin) as an important phytonutrient in broccoli that makes it a Superfood.

A from damage.

 


Product Description

Broculin uses carefully selected Broccoli Seeds that contain more than 12 times higher SGS content than raw matured broccoli

To identify the richest SGS sources among fruits and vegetables, the scientists at Johns Hopkins surveyed the fruit and vegetable kingdom and discovered that broccoli contained the highest levels of SGS.

However, the amount varies tremendously from one broccoli plant to another with no way for consumers to tell how much SGS is in the broccoli they buy.

Cooking broccoli can also destroy up to 90% of SGS. When the broccoli is no longer bright green and crunchy, you are likely to be cooking this Superfood into a not-so-super meal!

Broculin uses carefully selected Broccoli Seeds that contain a concentrated, consistent and meaningful level of SGS. The Broccoli Seeds used has been shown to contain more than 12 times higher SGS content* than raw matured broccoli.

According to published findings of Johns Hopkins University scientists.
^ Ref: Journal of Science of Food and Agriculture 85(4) 671-681 (2005)

 

With the exceptional high SGS content, each serving of Broculin gives an equivalent amount of more than 200g of raw broccoli!

 

Sulforaphane delivers long-lasting antioxidant action, 24 times longer than other common antioxidants

Antioxidants protect our cells against damage by free radicals and environmental pollutants.

Sulforaphane, the “rechargeable” super antioxidant delivers long-lasting antioxidant action which provides longer protection to our cells. Sulforaphane is used up ‘charging’ our body’s protective enzymes but the enzymes remain in a ‘charged’ state for up to 72 hours!

In comparison, most common antioxidants such as Vitamin C in orange juice last for just 3 hours in our body. In other words, the Sulforaphane’s antioxidant benefits are 24 times longer than other common antioxidants!

Fortified with precise balance of Inulin and FOS from chicory root extract for total gut health and smooth bowel movement

Chicory Root is one of the richest natural sources of Inulin and Fructooligosaccharides (FOS). As dietary fibre, Chicory Inulin and FOS increase fibre mass and promote the regularity of bowel movement.

As prebiotics, Chicory Inulin and FOS are fermented by healthy gut bacteria, selectively stimulating their growth and producing beneficial short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Other than acting as the important nutrients for colon cells, SCFAs also encourage healthy bowel movement and help produce softer stools. 

Due to the difference in chain length, they are fermented at different parts of the colon which allows beneficial fermentation to happen throughout the entire colon, thereby promoting total gut health and overall well-being.

 

Proven FOS-enriched inulin dosage for enhanced calcium absorption

Dietary calcium intake has an important impact on bone health. Inadequate calcium intake or poor intestinal calcium absorption can lead to chronic calcium deficiency, resulting in reduced bone mass and osteoporosis.

Therefore, an adequate calcium intake is vital at all stages of life.

A combination of Inulin and FOS has been shown to enhance calcium absorption and bone mineralisation. The SCFAs and lactate produced from the fermentation process of Inulin and FOS in colon decrease the pH value in colon significantly.This increases the solubility of calcium and more calcium becomes available for absorption.

 

Broculin is suitable for vegetarians
