NatureFlex Bone and Joint Healing Supplement is a complete bone and joint formula that assists with rapid healing from hard workouts, injuries, stress fractures and joint pain. It contains naturally occurring compounds such as Glucosamine and Chondroiton from type II chicken collagen as well as whole foods, herbs and enzymes that are synergistically blended together to promote bone and joint wellness and vitality, including:
- A blend of 17 different foods, botanicals and enzymes
- A complete bone and joint formula
- Contains Glucosamine & Chondroitin from Type II Chicken Collagen
- Contains enzymes and botanicals
- Contains over 20 naturally occurring minerals from both predigested and regular goat milk whey
NatureFlex contains the following four perfectly balanced blends:
Chicken Collagen Type II: Collagen is the principal structural protein in cartilage which provides strength, flexibility and support. It comprises over 50% of the protein in cartilage and over 90% of articular (joint) cartilage. Collagen provides strength, flexibility and support.
A recent randomized, double-blind study examined extensively the efficacy of oral supplementation of type II collagen on rheumatoid arthritis. The study showed a decrease in the number of swollen and tender joints in those receiving type II collagen.1 The compounds in Chicken Collagen Type II provides the structural support of healthy joints by promoting new cartilage synthesis and by reducing oxidative damage to the joints. Contains naturally occurring Chondroiton and Glucosamine sulfates.
Cherry Juice: This natural extract aids in the breakdown of uric acid crystals which deposit in joints, tendons, kidneys and connective tissue, where the crystals causes inflammation, pain and damage. One study found that consuming eight ounces of cherries per day was very effective in lowering uric acid levels. Concentrated cherry juice delivers the bioactives found in fresh cherries such as anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins without excess carbohydrates or calories.
Ginger: Possessing many anti-inflammatory characteristics, ginger also has strong antioxidant properties and has shown the ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds such as prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes. One particular study found almost 90% of participants suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and muscular discomfort experienced relief from pain or swelling when using ginger.
Turmeric: Also referred to as curcumin, turmeric manifests excellent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. This potent botanical acts as an alkalizer and has anti-arthritic properties. Human studies have shown that certain beneficial aspects of curcumin have been comparable to that of standard drugs such as phenylbutazone.
White Willow Bark: The use of white willow bark used for pain and inflammation dates back to over 2400 years to the time of Hippocrates. One was advised to chew the bark to reduce inflammation and fever. It appears to be particularly well suited for low back pain6 and has been found effective in relieving pain in those suffering from osteoarthritis. Its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving action comes from a glycoside called calicin – from which the body can naturally make salicylic acid (aspirin). The analgesic, pain-killing actions of willow bark are typically slow acting but are longer lasting than standard aspirin products.
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is one of the main components of synovial fluid (joint fluid) and is the main lubricating element in synovial fluid. It has been approved by the FDA for intra-muscular injections and has also been found to be effective in oral doses. One particular study found oral hyaluronic acid to enhance several markers of quality of life in adults with osteoarthritis of the knee.
Boswellia: Known by its more popular name Frankincense, boswellia shows anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic characteristics and has been used for hundreds of years to relieve pain and inflammation to joints. In a preliminary crossover trial boswellia significantly reduced symptoms of osteoarthritis, such as knee pain and swelling.
Cetyl Myristoleate: This naturally occurring fatty acid promotes joint wellness and has been researched clinically. Preliminary results of several double-blind, randomized controlled, research studies on osteoarthritis have found cetyl myristoleate effective in improving knee function.
Goat Milk Mineral Whey Concentrate: This mineral/electrolyte extract from goat milk whey has been developed using state of the art extraction technology known as Refractance Window Drying® Technology. This gentle extraction process captures important and fragile nutrients without harsh processing steps or extreme temperatures. This mineral whey blend contains over 20 different bio-organic minerals and electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus. These minerals are critical in maintaining proper muscle and joint health.
Oral enzyme therapy is a unique approach to promoting joint wellness. One study has examined its role in successfully alleviating osteoarthritis pain in the knee. The conclusion of the study read that “Short-term evaluation indicates that oral enzymes may be considered an effective and safe alternative to NSAIDs such as diclofenac in the treatment of painful arthritis and inflammation of the knee joint. The enzyme blend contains the following natural anti-inflammatory components:
- Protease: Converts protein into polypeptides
- Bromelain: A combination of unique enzymes from both fruit and leaves of the pineapple plant
- Papain: An anti-inflammatory enzyme found in papayas
- Amylase: Breaks down and digests carbohydrates
- Lipase: Powerful fat digesting enzyme
- Cellulase: Converts fiber cellulose to glucose. Cellulase is not made in your body and can only be obtained from food or supplements
- Peptidase: Capable of breaking down proteins at different pH levels along the digestive tract
When all these components are included together, the result is a bone and joint formula that is far more effective than the basic glucosamine and chondroitin blend that you’ll find in most bone and joint supplements.
According to the American Arthritis Foundation, more than 80 million Americans experience some form of joint and soft tissue discomfort, and athletes and exercise enthusiasts are no exception. NatureFlex was formulated to assist your body in rebuilding and supporting healthy cartilage, adding flexibility and mobility to joints, and reducing pain while increasing bone density.
The Type II Chicken Collagen used in NatureFlex comes from chickens free of growth hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and insecticides. This form of collagen is a whole food concentrate that has no known side effects and provides maximum absorption. Type II Collagen is the principle structural protein in cartilage which provides strength, flexibility and joint support. According to recent studies at Harvard University Medical School, the Type II Collagen derived from Chicken Cartilage can also help to strengthen your immune system.
In addition, NatureFlex contains a unique ingredient: goat milk whey. This type of whey has been used for decades to promote bone density as well as relieving aching, painful joints, and doesn’t cause allergy issues like some other forms of whey can. One world-renowned nutritionist, Dr. Bernard Jensen, used goat milk whey as one of his go-to healing foods of choice for healthy joints. This highly concentrated whole food extract also contains a complete array of naturally occurring minerals (including Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium) in ratios received by the body with ease.
NatureFlex does not rely on traditional tableting technology. The reason for this is current tableting technology requires that ingredients be ground extensively, granulated multiple times, binding agents must be added, and finally the product must be crushed in a 10 to 100 ton press to successfully “punch” the tablet into shaped. This process exposes the delicate ingredients to high pressure, high heat, and lowers the bio-availability of the final product. This is precisely the reason NatureFlex and all of our professional formulas, use the traditional encapsulation technology as it requires no binders, no granulation, no extreme pressure or temperature. We use a non-gelatin, vegetarian capsule made from vegetable cellulose.
NatureFlex Bone and Joint Healing Supplement blows any other glucosamine-chondroitin supplement out of the water, and athletes and exercise enthusiasts who notice zero difference from other products find that the unique blend of natural anti-inflammatories in NatureFlex cause a distinct increase in recovery, healing and joint comfort.
Whether you are using them for rapid recovery from exercise, for a potent nutrient to keep nervous system fatigue at bay during a tough training session, to help an injury to heal faster, to fall asleep faster, to build muscle at a more rapid rate, to get added amino acids if you’re aging, vegan, vegetarian or in ketosis, or to give your immune system added support, NatureAminos Essential Amino Acids Tablets contain a perfect amount of the eight essential amino acids your body needs to support and maintain muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, and hormonal systems.
You probably know that the amino acids you get from protein are crucial for getting to sleep faster, repairing muscle, recovery, healing of your gut lining, brain function, neurotransmitter formation and much, much more…
…and it sure is easy to assume you are consuming enough of these amino acids from the protein you find in food sources like eggs, cheese, seeds, nuts, meats, etc.
While it is indeed true that you get good quality proteins from these foods, the unfortunate fact is that much of the protein in the food you eat is NOT converted into protein – and instead it just makes nitrogen and ammonia waste that your body has to get rid of plus extra calories.
Yep, most of that expensive post-workout steak is just a ton of money you spend that winds up as a boatload of calories, stress on your digestive system, and not a terribly large amount of true actual amino acid absorption.
Because of this, almost everyone is protein deficient without realizing it, and this deficiency manifests as a nagging injury that won’t heal in an athlete, or brittle bones in a menopausal women, or constant colds in a child. The annoying symptoms of protein and amino acid deficiency is very often something you are aware of, but you (and most doctors) just can’t identify an amino acid deficiency without an expensive test like an organic acids profile. But not getting enough protein can mean low hormones, or a low immune system or risk of chronic disease or cancer, and much more.
However, whether you’re a hard-charging athlete, you’re injured, you need added hormone or neurotransmitter support, the essential amino acids in NatureAminos are in the exact ratios your body needs for maximum utilization by the body – with 99% absorption and utilization, giving you all the advantages of eating an entire steak, but with only 0.4 calories and a convenient, portable, instantly digestible tablet form that you can swallow or chew.
And yes, this means you get all the advantages of walking in from your workout and getting the equivalent of eating an entire steak, but without actually having to prepare, chew, digest or engage in any other stressful or inconvenient way to get your protein. Don’t take this the wrong way: of course, we’re all about eating high-quality, tasty foods like steak, eggs and nuts, but when you’re hammering on a bike, pounding the pavement on a run, have 10 minutes to figure out how to get all the protein you need, or you’re in any other situation that requires you get your protein fast and you get it absorbed even faster, NatureAminos is the perfect solution.
NatureAminos is an essential amino acids (also known as EAA’s) supplement that is 99% utilized by the body to make protein. No other form of protein comes close! The ingredients contain all eight essential amino acids, perfect for omnivores, Paleo dieters, vegans, vegetarians, and ketosis:
- Tryptophan to encourage the release of important neurotransmitters and hormones for mood and sleep, such as serotonin and melatonin.
- Lysine, which, if deficient, can result in a deficiency in niacin (Vitamin B), as well as slow connective tissue repair.
- Methionine to supply sulphur and other compounds required by your body for optimum metabolism and growth.
- Valine, which is needed for muscle fiber firing, tissue repair, and for the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in the body.
- Leucine, which stimulates muscle protein synthesis and may be the major fuel involved in anabolic (tissue building) reactions.
- Isoleucine, which is important for blood sugar regulation, muscle development and repair and energy regulation.
- Threonine, which is important for antibody production, immune system activity, and can be converted into glycine and serine.
- Phenylalanine, which stimulates the release of neurotransmitters and hormones such adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are necessary substances for optimum activity of your central and peripheral nervous systems.
DEEP30 Protein Powder Information
DEEP30 Whey Casein Protein Powder Blend is a pure and unique blend of electrolytes, protein, and probiotics that creates zero issues with gastrointestinal upset or constipation that common whey protein powders create. It has zero artificial sweeteners or nasty fillers and fake ingredients.
It contains over 20 organic minerals, with a natural blend of both casein and whey proteins for complete protein assimilation, making it perfect for fat loss, muscle building, workout recovery and controlling appetite cravings. As a source of probiotics, this protein also delivers 10 times more live probiotics than yogurt, making it not only the most delicious and easiest-to-digest complete protein powder you will ever taste, but also incredibly supportive for a healthy immune system.
DEEP30 also contains GanedenBC30, a natural probiotic supplement designed to help support digestive health and maintain the immune system. Two published clinical studies have shown that Bacillus coagulans, the specific bacterial strain of GanedenBC30, (found inside DEEP30) significantly decreases abdominal bloating or discomfort and also increases the immune response to viral challenge.
The uniqueness of DEEP30 is founded upon three concepts:
1. Essential Mineral/Electrolyte Support
Millions of Americans lack minerals/electrolytes in their diet. This can be attributed to poor diet as well as general lack of nutrients in much of the soil used for the farming of our food. DEEP30 addresses this by providing over 20 bio-organic minerals from goat milk whey.
2. Specific Amino Acid Maintenance
Since protein is found in every part of the body, it makes sense that proper maintenance of amino acids, the building blocks that make up protein is vital to overall health. DEEP30 contains a whole protein supplement untainted by bovine (cow) protein or phyto-estrogen filled soy protein. By utilizing a proprietary process to gently release both casein and whey protein from all-natural goat milk, the protein found in DEEP30 is easily digested and free of anything unhealthy.
3. Probiotic Delivery
Probiotics are live organisms and it is imperative that they reach the intestinal tract alive. Probiotics, or beneficial bacteria such as the strain Bacillus coagulans found in GanedenBC30, are important to maintaining a proper balance of healthy vs. harmful bacteria in the digestive tract. When compared with yogurt, Bacillus coagulans delivers 10 times as many live probiotics to the small intestine.2 This is extremely important as probiotics can only deliver digestive and immune benefits if they make it to the small intestine. And GanedenBC30 is safe too. An independent panel of scientists awarded self-affirmed GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status after an extensive evaluation of research studies and toxicology data.
One serving of DEEP30 contains a full daily dose of Bacillus coagulans. GanedenBC30 is not a drug. It is a natural supplement designed to help support digestive health and maintain the immune system. Two published clinical studies have shown that Bacillus coagulans, the specific bacterial strain of GanedenBC30, (found inside DEEP30) significantly improves abdominal pain and bloating in patients with IBS3 and increases the immune response to viral challenge.
GanedenBC30 is a spore-forming probiotic bacterium, meaning that inside the bacterial cell is a hardened structure, or spore, which is analogous to a seed. This spore safeguards the cell’s genetic material from the challenges of shelf life and the acid and bile it is exposed to during transit to the digestive system. Once Ganaden is safely inside your small intestine, the viable spore is then able to germinate and produce new vegetative cells or good bacteria and deliver digestive and immune benefits.
As you can see, DEEP30 Protein is unlike any other protein on the face of the planet. Even people who cannot tolerate any other form of whey protein do just fine with DEEP30. Simply choose your flavor and begin adding it to a daily smoothie or post-workout shake!
Life Shotz Information
You want to feel better when you wake up in the morning. You want shinier hair and healthier skin. You want a body that’s 100% equipped to fight off colds and sickness. You want to recover faster from workouts. And you want the confidence that your body is equipped with every possible nutrient it needs to defy wrinkles, stop joint degradation and defy aging.
To do all this, you’re going to need natural ingredients that directly strengthen every tiny cell in your body – and this is where Life Shotz Anti-Aging And Cellular Support Blend fits in.
Life Shotz is an anti-aging and cellular support blend that was formulated by Greenfield Fitness Systems coach Ben Greenfield’s personal naturopathic physican – Dr. Todd Schlapfer. It is a powdered “shot” that you can easily carry around in your pocket, gym bag or purse. When you need to stop stress, mitigate the effects of things like pollution or chlorine or boost your immune system, you simply add one packet of Life Shotz to any glass of water or beverage, or dump the Life Shotz straight into the mouth.
The exact ingredients and formulation in Life Shotz are all derived from wild plants, which are some of the most “stressed” biological compounds on the of the planet. When you consume the extract of those wild plants, they pass their natural stress-fighting properties on to you. Life Shotz ingredients include:
-VITAMIN B1 (thiamin) helps metabolize carbohydrates for the production of energy. It also possesses antioxidant, cognitive, mood-elevating and detoxification properties. Deficiencies in Vitamin B1 can lead to slower memory recall, difficulty focusing thoughts and a depressed mood.
-VITAMIN B2 (riboflavin) is essential for the metabolism of fat, carbohydrates and proteins. It’s very important for protecting the body from free radical damage and promoting healthy skin and eyes.
-VITAMIN B5 (pantothenic acid) aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins as well as synthesizing a co-enzyme for metabolizing fatty acids. It is also vital for the maintenance of normal adrenal function, stress regulation, nerve transmission and facilitating detoxification pathways.
-VITAMIN B6 is needed for more than 100 enzymes in your body and is crucial to the production of red blood cells. It is a major player in the metabolism of proteins, especially with respect to the synthesis of neurotransmitters. Additionally, it is required for the production of hemoglobin, blood sugar regulation and the development of the myelin sheath surrounding nerve cells. The sources of Riboflavin (riboflavin-5-phosphate) and Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5′-phosphate) in Life Shotz are phosphorylated. This means the Vitamin has already been bonded to a phosphor. In their phosphorylated form, they are already in a state that the body can easily absorb and utilize. This creates less stress on your digestive system and a much higher absorption rate. It is rare to see this level of an ingredient in dietary supplements.
-VITAMIN B12 is a vital nutrient needed to help make DNA and keep nerve and blood cells healthy. B12 plays an important role in supporting the body’s adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, the energy our cells run on. B12 as methlycobalamin helps support healthy and restful sleep cycles.
-VITAMIN C is a Vitamin linked to overall better health and a go-to supplement for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. Vitamin C is also powerful antioxidant that can block damage caused by free radicals, and it has been linked to stress reduction and protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, eye disease and even skin wrinkling.
-VITAMIN D is an immune-system builder that is important for bone development. Vitamin D delivers incredible “feel good” qualities, and is known as the sunshine vitamin. But even with plentiful sun exposure you could be deficient. As the principal regulator of calcium in the body, Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and bone mineralization and development. Without it, calcium is poorly utilized by the body, leading to a decrease in bone density. Vitamin D is also hugely involved in brain function. The reported biological effects of Vitamin D in the nervous system include increased glutathione levels – one of your body’s key antioxidant defenses. It is becoming increasingly clear that sufficient daily doses of Vitamin D3 are superior to less frequent higher doses. Vitamin D3, not Vitamin D2, is the body’s preferred form and is the same form that our body naturally produces from sun exposure.
-FOLIC ACID is essential for the formation of red and white blood cells, and the production of normal cells lining blood vessels and mucus membranes. It is critical for forming amino acids, regulating gastrointestinal function, DNA synthesis, cardiovascular health, normal cellular division/development and anti-inflammatory processes. Brain chemistry, behavior and mood are influenced by folic acid. But you are not capable of creating folic acid naturally – it must come through diet. Folate is considered to be one of the most common nutritional deficiencies and yet one of the most critical for optimal health.
-MAGNESIUM is required in over 300 biochemical reactions. It is important for maintaining normal muscle and nerve function and supports a healthy immune system. Over 50% of the body’s magnesium is found in the bone. Magnesium plays an integral role in the bone matrix that keeps bones healthy and strong. Magnesium also helps to regulate blood sugar levels and promote normal blood pressure. It is also known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
-ZINC CITRATE is an essential mineral that aids in bone development, digestion, mood, and hundreds of other enzymatic reactions.
-NIACIN is a water soluble B Vitamin. This means the body cannot store it and must consume it daily. Niacin plays an important role in skin, digestive and nerve health. Niacin also helps the body convert food into energy. Niacin is commonly found in seeds and nuts.
-N-ACETYL CYSTEINE is a potent antioxidant and cell detoxifier. NAC is a precursor for glutathione production. Glutathione is the top antioxidant manufactured by the body. Glutathione is viewed as the body’s first line of defense against free radical damage. NAC also helps the body’s immune system fight off colds by breaking down mucus build up.
-QUERCETIN is a plant-sourced bioflavonoid, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine. It helps to regulate immune function and bone health. It also modulates cellular stress and helps maintain blood vessel health.
-AÇAI is a deep purple fruit that comes from the acai palm tree, which is native to Central and South America. As a relative of the blueberry, cranberry and other purple fruits, it contains powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life’s stressors. The acai berry also plays an important role in bolstering the body’s immune system.
-GOJI BERRY grows on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and the Himalayas. They are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. This nutrient-dense fruit contains essential vitamins and minerals, amino acids, polysaccharides, monosaccharides, carotenoids and more.
