MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER AND CEO My name is Jason Strotheide, D.C., and I am the founder and CEO of ChiroThin™ and it’s parent company, ChiroNutraceutical. I am a 2nd generation Chiropractor, 1993 graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic, and am the 6th Chiropractor in my family. ChiroThin and its parent company ChiroNutraceutical was founded in 2010 because I realized that the overweight/obesity rates in North America were rapidly increasing and had no signs of slowing down (much less reversing), and that has a direct negative impact on the ability for patients to maximally experience the benefits of Chiropractic care. I also knew that there is no better-qualified person to help people obtain a healthier life than Chiropractors. Since our launch, ChiroNutraceutical has developed a proprietary line of supplements that are designed to help support proper function of, repair, and heal the body’s various systems as well as supplements designed to target specific health conditions that many Chiropractic patients suffer from. Additionally, we have developed several more generalized supplements, including a whole-food based, prolonged release multi-vitamin/multi-mineral complex and a breakthrough topical pain inflammation cream called ActiFlex. In closing, thank you for taking the time to review this catalog! If you are looking for a company that offers the highest quality non-GMO supplements that are manufactured according to NSF and cGMP standards at fair prices for both the doctor and patient, look no further! I would be honored to have you as a client! Yours for good health,

PS: All of our supplements are only made available to Chiropractors. This way, you will never experience your patient coming into the office wanting to know why you charged them more than they could buy it for online or at Walmart!

WHY SELL ONLY TO CHIROPRACTORS? You can’t even imagine how many times we have been told what a dumb idea it is to only sell ChiroThin and our other supplements to Chiropractors. Oddly enough, the ones telling us that are the same companies that many of you currently buy your supplements from. They always tell us how much more money we could be making if we sold to medical doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, online, etc. The funny thing is...they are right! However, ChiroThin/ChiroNutraceutical was started to help Chiropractors help more people. By keeping our supplements in the Chiropractic family, we are protecting you against near wholesale competition. I still remember when BioFreeze was only available through Chiropractic offices. Now anybody can walk into most bigbox retail stores and buy it for the same price (and often even less) than what you pay when buying it for resale in your office. Remember the last time you had a patient come into your office and ask why you charged them more for a particular supplement than Amazon and wanted a partial refund because they went home and searched the internet? With ChiroThin and ChiroNutraceutical, that will never happen!

WEIGHT LOSS CHIROTHIN IS SOLD EXCLUSIVELY TO CHIROPRACTORS

CHIROTHIN – THE PERFECT FIT FOR CHIROPRACTIC OFFICES An In-Demand, Cash Service That Helps Improve The Health Of Your Patients, Your Community, & Your Practice! If you are serious about getting your patients as healthy as possible, want your patients to experience maximum benefits from the Chiropractic care you provide, and hold their adjustments longer, you need to help them manage their weight! The fact that being overweight or obese has a direct negative impact on the “Triangle of Health” (physical, chemical, and emotional stress being placed on an individual) has been proven beyond a doubt and is irrefutable. The greater the degree of being overweight/obese, the greater role the three stressors play. Is it any wonder why 85% of all health issues are conditions that are either directly or indirectly related to a person being overweight or obese and $0.75 of every dollar spent on health care is related to conditions that being overweight or obese causes, aggravates, exacerbates, or accelerates? Conditions that are commonly seen in Chiropractic offices that have a direct relationship to being overweight/obese are: accelerated rates of osteoarthritis/joint degeneration, increased levels of inflammation, increased pain levels, delayed healing, immune suppression, diabetes, heart disease, hormonal imbalances, and depression. The proportion of adults in the United States defined as overweight or obese (BMI >= 25) has risen from around 50% in the early 1980’s to over 70% today and has no signs of slowing down. The age group most affected by these staggering numbers are adults that are 40-59 years old. This age group coincides with the age group that is the largest consumer of Chiropractic care.

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTOR-SUPERVISED WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM? There are two critical components to the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program: 1) the ChiroThin nutritional support formula and 2) the ChiroThin eating program. The ChiroThin Nutritional Support formula is a proprietary formula that is composed of various amino acids, cell salts, and vitamins at multiple potencies. Each ingredient has been included for its stand-alone effects at each strength as well as its interactions when combined with the other ingredients at their individual potencies. Further, the nutritional support formula uses only all-natural ingredients and is both stimulant-free and hormone-free. The ChiroThin eating program uses only real food purchased at the grocery store.

HOW DOES CHIROTHIN WORK? The ChiroThin Weight Loss Program works in several ways. Firstly, the nutritional support formula aids metabolic function by stimulating/boosting energy levels. It also helps stabilize blood sugars, protect muscles, and promote detoxification. 11

www.ChiroThin.com • 877.377.7636


WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

Further, the ingredients contained within the nutritional support formula are known to aid in hormone production and regulation, thereby allowing for interactions with the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal-Thyroid Axis to aid in prevention HPAT axis dysregulation. HPAT axis dysregulation may be the causal link between conditions such as maternal malnutrition, sleep deprivation, metabolic disease, and metabolic syndrome. As such, preventing dysregulation of the HPA axis may help prevent obesity, especially upper body obesity and other metabolic disorders. The eating program utilizes only real food and does not use weight loss shakes or meal replacement bars. As such and in addition to promoting weight loss, the ChiroThin eating program helps teach people how to shop for, prepare, and consume the correct types of food that support long-term weight loss and improved health instead of foods that promote weight gain, disease, and illness.

WHY OFFER THE CHIROPRACTOR-SUPERVISED CHIROTHIN WEIGHT LOSS? Market Size: Current studies performed by the Gallup Organization show that 51% of adults want to lose weight and 29% of adults are actively doing something to lose weight on any given day. This means that the market size of weight loss is a little more than 72x’s LARGER that the market size of Chiropractic. Approximately 70% of weight loss clients will not be your existing Chiropractic patient. This means much greater exposure to your office and when using our tested and proven conversion scripting, more new Chiropractic patients than you can imagine. Health Benefits: If you are serious about getting your patients healthy, want your patients to experience maximum benefits from the Chiropractic care you provide and hold their adjustments longer, you need to help them manage their weight! It has been proven beyond a doubt that being overweight or obese has a direct negative impact on the physical, chemical, and emotional stress being placed on an individual. In Chiropractic, we call this the “Triangle of Health”. The greater the degree of being overweight/ obese the greater the three stressors play. Additionally, approximately 85% of all health issues are conditions that are either directly or indirectly related to a person being overweight or obese. Conditions that are commonly seen in Chiropractic offices that have a direct relationship to being overweight/obese are: accelerated rates of osteoarthritis/joint degeneration, increased levels of inflammation, increased pain levels, delayed healing, immune suppression, hormonal imbalances, and depression.

REVENUE – IMPROVING YOUR BOTTOM LINE: ChiroThin is an in-demand, cash-based service. The average low price charged in the United States is $650, paid in advance. Since each patient has six visits per cycle, this equals $108.66 CASH per visit. Remember… the public is already trained to pay cash for weight loss. You don’t see gyms, personal trainers, yoga instructors, life coaches, or other weight loss programs accepting insurance, or waiting to be paid. ChiroThin is no different. As previously mentioned, approximately 70% of your weight loss clients will not be existing Chiropractic patients. When you combined the revenue from weight loss and the income from Chiropractic care, it is reasonable to expect that ChiroThin will add $150,000-$500,000 per year to your office’s revenue. 12

MULTIVITAMIN/MULTIMINERAL ULTRA-VITE • A whole food based, high potency multi-vitamin & chelated mineral complex

• Prolonged release • Certified vegetarian • Certified organic

• Sugar & starch free • Truth in labeling

WHY SHOULD I TAKE ULTRA-VITE? In order for the body to work properly, it is important for it to get the right amount of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. It has been discovered that there are approximately thirteen vitamins that are considered to be “essential” when it comes to the proper functioning of the systems in the body. Without these essential nutrients, your body will suffer in one way or another. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies play a role in a good majority of health problems. Let’s look at how Ultra-Vite (a certified organic, whole food, prolonged release) multivitamin can benefit you.

WHY IS THE QUALITY OF ULTRA-VITE SO IMPORTANT? Being designed by doctors, ChiroNutraceutical’s Ultra-Vite was specifically developed to provide you with a high potency supplement that is formulated with a prolonged release delivery system which maximizes absorption and utilization. In addition to vitamins, Ultra-Vite contains chelated minerals and additional support factors including bioflavonoids, rutin, herperdin, Betaine HCL and glutamic acid. When it comes to nutrition, you really do get what you pay for! When buying a cheaply produced multivitamin, you will not reap much, if any health benefits. You are wasting your money! Ultra-Vite is “Pharma-Made”. The raw materials are quarantined and tested for potency. Once in production, it is tested before, during and after the manufacturing process. This is done to ensure that what’s on the label is in the bottle. ( you may be surprised to know that this is not the case with many supplements) ChiroNutraceutical’s Ultra-Vite is a complete whole food based multi-vitamin and chelated mineral complex that is designed to provide the nutritional requirements your body needs in a convenient prolonged release, all natural, gluten free, vegetarian capsule that is taken in a “One-A-Day” fashion. Ultra-Vite contains NO artificial colors, flavors, or preservative; no wheat, gluten, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, crustacean shellfish or fish.

VITAMIN B12 SPRAY (METHYLCOBALAMIN) CNB12PLUS - A HIGH DOS METHYLCOBALAMIN • Increased metabolism • Nervous system repair & support

• Anti-brain aging • Anemia

• Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis

WHAT IS METHYLCOBALAMIN? Methylcobalamin is the active form of vitamin B12 that acts as a cofactor for methionine synthase in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, thus lowering blood levels of homocysteine. Methylcobalamin acts as a methyl donor and participates in the synthesis of SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine), a nutrient that has powerful mood elevating properties. Vitamin B12 can be absorbed sublingually, orally, and in a doctor’s office it can be given by injection. Methylcobalamin is one of the two coenzyme forms of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) but methyl form is used in the central nervous system. Vitamin B12 plays an important role in red blood cells, prevention and treatment of anemia, methylation reactions, and immune system regulation. Evidence indicates methylcobalamin has some metabolic and therapeutic applications not shared by the other forms of vitamin B12. Methylcobalamin donates methyl groups to the myelin sheath that insulates nerve fibers and regenerates damaged neurons. In a B12 deficiency, toxic fatty acids destroy the myelin sheath but high enough doses of B12 can repair it.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? Japanese scientists identified a form of vitamin B12 that protects against neurological disease and aging by a unique mechanism that differs from current therapies. Some of the disorders that may be preventable or treatable with methylcobalamin include Parkinson’s disease, peripheral neuropathies, Alzheimer’s disease, muscular dystrophy and, neurological aging. Americans have immediate access to this form of vitamin B12, and unlike prescription drugs, it costs very little and is free of side effects. Vitamin B12 is a general label for a group of essential biological compounds known as cobalamins. The cobalamins are structurally related to hemoglobin in the blood, and a deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause anemia. The primary concern of conventional doctors is to maintain adequate cobalamin status to protect against anemia. The most common form of vitamin B12 is called cyanocobalamin. However, over the last 10 years, a number of central and peripheral neurological diseases have been related to a deficiency of a very specific cobalamin, the methylcobalamin form that is required to protect against neurological diseases and aging.

METABOLISM & APPETITE SUPPORT AGGR - A STIMULANT-FREE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT AND WEIGHT SUPPORT FORMULA • Thermogenesis • Fat burning hormones Leptin & Adiponectin

• Healthy blood sugar levels and reduced cravings

• Appetite Control • Proper fat metabolism

AGGR is a vegetarian and gluten-free dietary supplement that supports weight management. It combines four ingredients that work together to accelerate, maintain, and break through weight loss barriers.

ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS: African Mango (Irvingia gabonesis) is a fruit found and grown in West Africa. The extract derived from the seed has been shown to support weight management through appetite suppression and increased metabolic rate. It works to slow body fat production by supporting favorable changes in Glycerol-3 Phosphate, Leptin and Adiponectin which supports reduction of the conversion of complex carbs into sugars, fat burning and hunger management. WellTrim® iG is a trademarked and patented extract of Irvingia gabonensis that is a clinically proven ingredient that supports multi-functional weight management activity. Raspberry Ketone is a compound that produces the smell in raspberries. It supports the weight loss process by sup-porting the body’s ability to produce Adiponectin, a hor-mone that increases metabolism, reduces fat cell size, and modulates a number of metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid catabolism. Adiponectin is exclusively secreted from the adipose tissue and supports weight management via the brain similar to the action of Leptin, a hormone produced in adipose tissue that increases metabolism and supports appetite control. Green Coffee Bean Extract provides antioxidant activity and supports metabolism in order to burn higher proportions of lipids (fat) to carbohydrates. Green Coffee Bean Extract contains two important polyphenolic compounds—caffeic and chlorogenic acids. Caffeic acid provides a safe energy boost while being naturally low in caffeine. Chlorogenic acid helps to slow the release of glucose into the blood stream and reduces the absorption of dietary fat. Green Tea Extract is an excellent source of potent polyhenolic compounds (bioflavonoids with powerful antioxidant properties). Research has identified EGCG as the most powerful active polyphenolic compound in Green Tea that supports thermogenesis (fat burning), healthy blood insulin levels and appetite control. The Green Tea Extract used in our product is standardized to contain 70% EGCG per capsule! 29

BLOOD PRESSURE SUPPORT BP CONTROL - AN ALL-NATURAL BLOOD PRESSURE SUPPORT FORMULA Specifically selected and synergistically blended all-natural ingredients make BP Control the natural choice for patients with high blood pressure or a family history of high blood pressure. It is an effective and easy to take blood pressure support and regulation formula. BP Control is the right choice for your patients at a price they can afford! Garlic: Garlic is an herb. It is best known as a flavoring for food. But over the years, garlic has been used as a medicine to prevent or treat a wide range of diseases and conditions. The fresh clove or supplements made from the clove are used for medicine. Garlic is used for many conditions related to the heart and blood system. These conditions include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, heart attack, and “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis). Some of these uses are supported by science. Garlic actually may be effective in slowing the development of atherosclerosis and seems to be able to modestly reduce blood pressure. Hibiscus Flower Powder: Hibiscus Flower Powder research has focused on hypertension and dyslipidemia, with several clinical trials emerging in the last 3–4 years. A randomized, controlled, double-blind clinical comparison study was conducted on H. sabdariffa extract vs lisinopril (control) on patients with stage I or II hypertension. Results showed that the Hibiscus extract decreased blood pressure from 146/98 mmHg to 130/86 mmHg (P<0.05). Based on the study data, the authors concluded that the hibiscus extract did have a significant antihypertensive action through at least 2 mechanisms of action: diuretic effects (likely as an aldosterone antagonist) and ACE inhibitory effects. The study authors also noted that the diuretic activity did not alter plasma potassium levels and did not have mineralocorticoid effects. Hawthorne Berry: The principle active components in hawthorne leaves, berries, and blossoms are flavonoids. One of these flavonoids, proanthocyanidin, has especially important cardiovascular effects. Two randomized, controlled trials found decreases in blood pressure measures. Ninety-two men and women with mild hypertension achieved a significant decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure after 3 months with C. curvisepala. Individuals suffering from angina may also benefit from hawthorn. In one small study, 100 mg 3 times daily of crataegus extract or placebo was given for 4 weeks. Angina decreased in 91% of patients in the hawthorn group vs only 37% in the placebo group; 45% of the patients in the hawthorn group completely stopped their nitroglycerine, compared with 25% in the placebo group. Hawthorn preparations are modestly effective in reducing blood pressure, preventing and treating atherosclerosis, lowering cholesterol, and preventing the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Hawthorne preparations may improve the blood supply to the heart by dilating the coronary arteries, increase the force of contraction of the heart muscle, and regulate cardiac rhythm. (Continued)

Olive Leaf Extract: Olive fruit’s array of beneficial compounds includes hydroxytyrosol, oleacein, ursolic,and oleanic acids. However, it is oleuropein, found in high concentrations in the leaf of the olive tree, that is largely responsible for the beneficial effect on high blood pressure. A multitude of causative factors underlies uncontrolled blood pressure. Many cases of hypertension involve increased arterial stiffness. This stiffness, or lack of elasticity, usually begins in the arterioles—tiny peripheral arteries most distant from the heart—and eventually spreads to larger arteries. Oleuropein has been shown to specifically target arterial resistance and stiffness, improving endothelial function and bringing blood pressure under control. It accomplishes this in part by modulating calcium channel flow—with an excellent tolerability profile. Coleus Forskholii: One of the most beneficial aspects of Coleus appears to be relating to its use in conditions such as hypertension, congestive heart failure, and angina. Coleus has been shown to reduce blood pressure along with improving the contractility of the heart. This improvement in function appears to be mainly due to the increase in camp. Coleus is also noted for its effects on reducing platelet aggregation and acting as a direct cerebral vasodilator. Buchu Leaves: Buchu contains both diosmin and hesperidin, which indicates it may have anti-inflammatory, hypolipidemic (blood cholesterol lowering), and vasoprotective actions. Uva Ursi: Uva Ursi has a history of medicinal use dating back to the 2nd century. It has been widely used as a diuretic, astringent, and antiseptic. Folk medicine around the world has recommended Uva Ursi for nephritis, kidney stones, and chronic cystitis. The herb has also been used as a general tonic for weakened kidneys, liver or pancreas. Native Americans used it as a remedy for headaches, to prevent and cure scurvy and to treat urinary tract infections. Green Tea Extract: A dietary supplement of green tea has now been shown to help lower multiple factors associated with the metabolic syndrome in overweight adults. The 56 participants in this study were classified as obese, insulin resistant, and hypertensive, meaning they already had multiple difficult metabolic issues similar to millions of Americans. Amazingly they took a relatively small daily amount of green tea extract standardized for 208 mg of the most potent antioxidant catechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). After three months of supplementation they had statistically significant reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressures, fasting serum glucose, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. Additionally, there were significant reductions in inflammation in both TNFa and CRP. Although this doubleblind, placebo-controlled trial is relatively small; these are dramatic health benefits in a difficult patient population.

CHOLESTEROL SUPPORT CHOLCONTROL - AN ALL-NATURAL CHOLESTEROL SUPPORT FORMULA By combining only high-end natural compounds that have been shown to be beneficial for individuals with elevated cholesterol levels, Chol-Control Cholesterol Support Formula by ChiroNutraceutical is formulated to help reduce LDL and triglyceride levels and increase the HDL level in your patients, as well as provide cholesterol support for those patients whose cholesterol falls within the normal range. The ingredients (policosinol, niacin, gugulipid, plant sterol complex, cayenne powder, and garlic powder) are synergistically blended to provide the potent and desired benefits. Plant Sterols/Stanols Plant sterols/stanols have been proven to lower LDL levels in multiple studies! In fact, a recent study for the University of California Davis Medical Center looked at the effects of sterol-fortified orange juice. Of 72 adults, half received regular orange juice and the other half fortified orange juice. After just 2 weeks, the group drinking the fortified orange juice had a 12.4% drop in their LDL cholesterol levels. The results were published in the journal “Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology”. The FDA gave these products the status of “health claim”. This means that experts widely agree on the cholesterol lowering benefits of stanols and sterols. It also allows manufacturers to advertise the heart-healthy benefits on labels. Ruth French, RD, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Assaociation said: “Eating sterol and stanol containing foods is an easy way to lower your LDL cholesterol, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease.” Gugulipid Gugulipid, which comes from the resin of the Commiphora Mukul tree, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for over 2000 years! Animal research and clinical trials over the past three decades has confirmed that Gugulipid can: reduce elevated serum cholesterol with significant reductions in LDL and VLDL, increase HDL cholesterol, reduce serum triglycerides, protect against cholesterol-induced atherosclerosis, decrease platelet adhesiveness and increase fibrinolytic activity, reduce body weight in obese patients with elevated cholesterol levels, and stimulate thyroid function.

Policosinol Policosinol acts on cholesterol metabolism in the liver, but at a different part of the metabolic pathway than statins. Multiple animal studies have shown that policosinol has a cholesterol lowering effect. Recently, human studies have revealed that policosinol has a LDL lowering effect that is on par with statin drugs. Also, in some cases, policosinol has been demonstrating HDL elevation by 10-25%.9 Niacin Niacin, also known as “nicotinic acid,” is found in red meat, chicken, turkey, beans, and grains. It is a required nutrient and a member of the B vitamin family. Have you ever taken a B-complex vitamin pill that triggered a strange burning sensation of the skin? If so, that was the niacin you experienced. Niacin plays a crucial role in energy production, gene expression, and hormone synthesis. Humans cannot exist without it. When taken at doses greater than the RDA, niacin confers an array of health benefits. Niacin: • • • • • •

Increases high-density lipoprotein (HDL) by 20-35%. No other available over-the-counter treatments, and very few drugs, are as effective. Decreases small low-density lipoprotein (small LDL) particles. Small LDL is an important yet underappreciated cause of heart disease. Niacin is the most effective agent known for correcting this abnormal pattern. Decreases triglycerides by 30%. Niacin is especially effective when taken with fish oil (at doses of 4000 mg a day, providing 1200 mg of EPA/DHA). Decreases very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles. Decreases lipoprotein(a), or Lp(a). No other treatment approaches the power of niacin to reduce the genetically determined pattern of high Lp(a), which is among the most serious risk factors for heart disease. Decreases low-density lipoprotein (LDL), usually by 20-40 mg/dL, or 5-25%.

Niacin blocks the release of fatty acids from fat cells. Fewer fatty acids are passed through to the liver, resulting in fewer VLDL particles. Less VLDL leads to less small LDL and higher HDL.1 Niacin also improves endothelial function and nitric oxide synthase activity. Cayenne & Garlic Cayenne Pepper and Garlic Powder round out the ingredients. These two powders are added because they help lower the level of LDL oxidation, which is one of the key factors in preventing atherosclerotic plaque buildup. Healthy men and women were randomly assigned cayenne chili or no chili for four weeks. At the end of the study, which was published in the August 2006 issue of the “British Journal of Clinical Nutrition”, “the scientist found that the cayenne chili group had a lowered rate of LDL cholesterol oxidation compared to the non-chili group.

DIGESTIVE/COLON HEALTH CN-DIGESTION - A COMPLETE DIGESTIVE ENZYME FORMULA Gas bloating? Poor digestion? CN-Digestion supports digestive tract function and nutrient absorption. CN-Digestion is one of the most comprehensive enzyme supplements available today. It is a broad-spectrum multiple enzyme formulation that contains 7 digestive enzymes along with probiotics, spirulina, dulse and trace minerals. CN-Digestion places special emphasis on proteolytic enzymes so that it can be used not only for digestive support, but also to support comfort and provide building blocks for injured tissues. Digestive enzymes are beneficial for: • Geriatric individuals (as we age, enzyme secretion decreases) • Those with jaw or teeth problems (improper chewing of food decreases enzyme secretion) • Those under stress • Those who overuse antacids (overuse of antacids can decrease enzyme effectiveness and secretion) • Those who eat a lot of fried, grilled, or baked foods (foods prepared at high temperatures for long periods of time lose naturally occurring enzyme activity) • Helping to digest gluten with the enzyme DPP-IV • People with deficient digestive enzymes (those who lack digestive enzymes are more prone to digestive problems) • For use as a proteolytic enzyme supplement • CN-Digestion places special emphasis on proteolytic enzymes, so that it can be used not only for digestive support, but also to support comfort and provide building blocks for injured tissues. • Digestive enzymes are secreted along the G.I. tract and are essential to the breakdown of foods, enabling nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream for use within the body. Each enzyme in CN-Digestion works on a specific substance in the body. • Lipase enzymes help digest and assimilate fats. • Protease enzymes including bromelain, pepsin, trypsin, and papain all digest proteins into smaller units (peptides and amino acids) for better absorption and utilization. • Lactase enzymes aid in lactose digestion. • Amylase enzymes breakdown carbohydrates. • Cellulase enzymes digest fiber. • Dulse provides an edible algae that is high in vitamins, especially Vitamin B6 and B12. • Spirulina also known as blue green algae and is considered a complete protein containing all of the essential amino acids. • Invertase splits sucrose into glucose and fructose. Contrary to most other enzymes, invertase exhibits relatively high activity over a broad range of pH. 41

DIGESTIVE/COLON HEALTH CN-GASTROCALM - A BITTERS-BASED DIGESTIVE STRESS FORMULA Bitter herbs are traditionally utilized to stimulate digestion, increase digestive enzymes and stomach acid, and reduce bloating and indigestion. Bitters Gentle Tincture is a combination liquid herbal extract made from organic and fair-trade certified herbs and designed for longer term use than other Bitters Tincture. This formula is customized for those sensitive individuals with digestive diseases that need a gentler approach. Even though this is a milder bitters tincture than many other commercial preparations, all bitters tinctures are still contraindicated in people with excess stomach acid and those with peptic ulcers. This all-natural liquid concentrate is free from sugar, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, and artificial preservatives.

ABOUT THE FORMULA Dandelion (Taraxacum officinalis): Though considered an annoying weed by many, dandelion provides many medicinal and culinary uses often overlooked by gardeners! Herbalists use dandelion as a diuretic, bitter, digestive stimulant, and nutritive tonic for the whole body, in particular the liver and kidneys. The entire plant has beneficial traits: leaves, root, and flower. Dandelion root is included here for its bitter properties. The root demonstrates choleretic and cholagogue action, in other words, stimulating liver and gall bladder function. Artichoke (Cynara scolymus): A bitter plant that is thought to stimulate digestion and normalize the appetite. Artichoke also supports liver function and reduces gas and bloating after meals. It is often used to improve indigestion, otherwise known as “functional dyspepsia.” Artichoke appears to be particularly helpful in patients who have reduced bile production. Artichoke has also been studied in combination with other herbs to help promote gastric motility: that is, increasing stomach emptying after meals. Chamomile (Matricaria): A relaxing herb that tonifies the nervous system and the digestive tract. This mild-tasting flower has been used to alleviate pain, anxiety, nausea, GERD, the effects of chronic stress, and more. Chamomile protects the stomach lining from injury by noxious substances, conferring healing benefits on the gastric mucosa. Chamomile may have a stabilizing effect on blood sugar and therefore on appetite. Marshmallow (Althea officinalis root): Althea has a long history of internal and topical use, possessing demulcent, emollient, and expectorant properties. Marshmallow root is soothing to inflamed tissues in cases of ulcers, heartburn, diarrhea, sore throats, spasmodic coughs, and inflammatory bowel disease. This mucilaginous root is included in the Bitters Gentle Tincture to protect the digestive mucous membranes from inflammation and ulceration. Wormwood (Artemesia absinthium): Wormwood’s leaves, flowers, and essential oil have all been used medicinally by herbalists. Wormwood is traditionally classified as a bitter to stimulate digestion and relieve intestinal spasms. It has been taken in combination with other herbs to treat the abdominal discomfort and cramping that accompany Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Its bitter constituents include absinthin and anabsinthin which stimulate gall bladder function. Ginger root: is used in cooking and also medicinally. Ginger is traditionally thought to stimulate digestion and increase digestive juices. Ginger is an antioxidant and may be helpful for reducing gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, stomach pain, and intestinal spasms. 43

DIGESTIVE/COLON HEALTH CN-FLUSH - A COLON CLEANSING FORMULA FOR DETOXIFICATION & CHRONIC BOWEL IRREGULARITY A convenient and comprehensive formula designed to help balance, soothe and replenish the Gastro Intestinal Tract. A Balance and Capture Blend containing Soluble Fiber (Fibersol-2â&#x201E;˘ brand), Psyllium Seed Husk, FOS (Fructooligosaccharides), Flax Seed Meal and Apple Pectin to support regularity, the immune system and healthy microbial balance. A Soothe and Replenish Blend containing N-Acetyl Glucosamine, L-Glutamine, Peppermint, Chamomile, Aloe Leaf Powder, Horsetail Rush, Rosemary and Ginger Root Powder to nourish and soothe the GI Tract as well as support overall function. A Reds and Greens Blend containing Alfalfa Powder, Spirulina, Beet Juice Powder, Chlorella-Cracked Cell Powder, Parsley Juice Powder, Broccoli Powder, Red Raspberry Powder, Acerola Berry Juice Powder, Cranberry Juice Powder, Watercress and Blessed Thistle for detoxification, energy and to reduce oxidative stress. A Remove and Detox Blend containing Arabinogalactans, Bentonite Clay, Olive Leaf Extract, Black Walnut (Green Hull) Powder, Kelp, Artichoke, Burdock, Garlic and Dandelion Root

NUTRIENTS OF INTEREST: Aloe helps to support healing of the lining of the stomach and keeps the folds and pockets of the colon free of toxic material that gather there. Arabinogalactans support colon health by acting as a fermentable fiber to promote growth of probiotic bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria in the colon. They also work in the GI tract by activating immune cells. Artichoke promotes the flow of bile. Good bile flow is also necessary for detoxification which is carried out by the liver. Bile serves as a carrier for the toxins that are excreted by the liver which are then sent to the intestine for their exit from the body. (Continued)

Bentonite Clay is natural clay used for detoxification of toxins and unwanted material. Bentonite also helps clean the colon by scraping the lining of the colon thereby freeing it of the various wastes deposited by years of eating an unhealthy diet. Burdock promotes the flow and release of bile, which helps to cleanse the liver. It also aids the digestive process. The mucilage, “bitter” and inulin contents in Burdock also help to support good digestion, as well as soothe the digestive tract. Chlorella supports cell reproduction, as well as restorative processes that promote healthy organs and tissues. Chlorella also aids the body in the breakdown of unwanted materials like heavy metals, and supports proper digestion by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and assisting in the elimination of unwanted materials from the body. N-Acetyl Glucosamine improves the integrity of the mucosal lining. Fibersol-2™ is a soluble fiber that has been shown to support proper bowel function, regularity, fecal volume, beneficial micro flora as well as a clean and healthy digestive tract. FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) aids in the elimination of unwanted substances and supports G.I. Tract health. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are considered a soluble fiber and pre-biotic that support the growth of beneficial bacteria. Since FOS is not digested, it increases the material in the digestive tract and promotes regularity. L-Glutamine is a key component in the maintenance of healthy intestinal mucosa. It fuels intestinal cells and maintains villi. A lack of glutamine may lead to a loss of enterocyte (cells in the small intestine) integrity in the lining of the intestines, which may affect digestion and absorption or allow pathogens into the body. Olive Leaf Extract works directly against unwanted materials by stimulating your own protective cells (phagocytes) to ingest them without suppressing the immune system or damaging the body’s beneficial flora. Spirulina supports healthy functioning of the liver and immune system, to aid in detoxification.

DIGESTIVE/COLON HEALTH NATURE-EASE - A PSYLLIUM-BASED PRODUCT TO PROMOTE BOWEL HEALTH If you don’t get enough roughage in your diet, if you’re constipated, or have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you may be taking a bulking agent like Metamucil, Citrucel, or Fiber-Con to make your stools larger and softer. If so, you may be pouring sugar or aspartame into your intestines. Sugar feeds the bad bacteria that can lead to fermentation, gas, and a suppressed immune system. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener linked to so many health problems that it takes a book that’s nearly 1,000 pages long to document all of them (Roberts, J.J. MD. Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, Sunshine Sentinel Press, Inc., West Palm Beach, FL). You may need a bulking agent. But you don’t need one with sugar or aspartame. Psyllium comes from the Plantago ovata plant. Sometimes the seeds and husk are used as a bulking agent. Both are mucilaginous, which means that when you put them in water, they absorb a lot of water and form a gel, softening and increasing the size of solid wastes. Psyllium is particularly resistant to fermentation, so it’s not likely to cause gas. It contains more fiber and it breaks down more slowly, producing large amounts of butyric acid. Butyric acid prevents the development of cancer cells and appears to protect against colon cancer. In one study, a group of colon cancer patients who took 20 grams of psyllium seed a day for three months had a 42 percent increase in their butyric acid levels. Nature-Ease’s Many Uses The same butyric acid that blocks cancer cells may be responsible for psyllium’s beneficial activity in people with ulcerative colitis. When colitis patients were given 10 grams of psyllium seed twice a day, their remission was the same as when they took drugs containing mesalamine. You may be able to avoid more expensive medications. Psyllium worked in 85 percent of people with chronic constipation with no pathological cause. It even reduced constipation by 37 percent in some patients who had rectal and intestinal disorders. Check with the doctor before taking anything for constipation to make sure you’re not masking symptoms from a more serious condition. (Continued)

The mucilaginous effect of psyllium soothes your intestines. It significantly reduced bleeding from hemorrhoids in a study of 50 people. But to be effective with hemorrhoids, you need to take it for at least a month. Psyllium’s ability to absorb water also makes it valuable for people with diarrhea. In one study, psyllium decreased the occurrence of incontinent stools by a full 50 percent. The longer you take this fiber, the better it seems to work. It lowers total cholesterol and the potentially harmful LDL cholesterol. A group of people who took a little over five grams of psyllium twice a day for two months had lowered total cholesterol and LDL levels. Another group of elderly patients had a 20 percent reduction in total cholesterol after taking psyllium for four months. Men and postmenopausal women, but not premenopausal women, had a significant drop in triglyceride levels after taking 15 grams of psyllium. Avoid Harmful Ingredients Many people with constipation reach for a laxative containing senna. It works, but while it stimulates muscle contractions and relieves constipation it can cause your intestines to lose some elasticity, creating a laxative dependency. A number of laxatives contain phenolphthalein, a chemical linked to an increased risk for cancer. The FDA has proposed a ban on phenolphthalein, but it’s still in some products. Read labels carefully and avoid phenolphthalein. Bottom line Psyllium is a naturally occurring bulking agent with no side effects — unless you have an allergy to the plant. It is most effective when taken for several months. Begin using the lowest amount in divided doses. Whether you have constipation, diarrhea, or intestinal inflammation, psyllium may be an effective and inexpensive remedy. Because it contains no artificial sweeteners, sugar, or potentially harmful chemicals, it’s safer than other over-the-counter bulking agents.

ENDOCRINE SYSTEM SUPPORT CN-ADRENAL - AN ADRENAL GLAND SUPPORT FORMULA This formula was designed to reduce anxiety and restlessness and to combat insomnia. The herbs in this tincture may also be useful in helping conditions that are worsened by stress such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), tension headaches, muscle tension, and high blood pressure.

ABOUT THE FORMULA Astragalus membranaceus: Astragalus membranaceus is considered to be a Qi (chi) tonic and used extensively in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Astragalus is a true adaptogen, neither too stimulating nor too relaxing, but rather helping the body to find its optimal balance. Astragalus seems to be effective for many body systems including the immune system, adrenal glands, the liver, and the cardiovascular system. It increases mitochondrial function and enhances tolerance to stress. Eleutherococcus senticosus: Eleutherococcus senticosus is another adrenal adaptogen that has a wide variety of applications in the body. Also known as Siberian ginseng, this herb is native to the Taiga region of the Far East and its use dates back 2000 years. Eleuthero may improve attention, mood, and stress tolerance. It is useful for people who are debilitated from cancer, chemotherapy, cardiovascular disease, or other chronic health conditions. Eleuthero is stimulating and warming. Panax ginseng: This adrenal adaptogen is also called Chinese ginseng or Asian ginseng, and has been in use since at least the 1st century C.E. Its many constituents, such as ginsenosides and panaxans, contribute to its many effects such as supporting immune function, lowering blood sugar, improving libido and erectile dysfunction, increasing sperm count, and enhancing physical and intellectual performance.

Glycyrrhiza glabra: Commonly known as licorice, Glycyrrhiza helps the body recover from long term stress by increasing the half life of cortisol. Licorice also possesses anti-inflammatory action by blocking certain leukotrienes. Glycyrrhiza is often used as a demulcent to heal the digestive tract and as an anti-viral and antioxidant. Kelp: Kelp offers a concentrated source of minerals such as iodine, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and iron. Kelp is traditionally used to support endocrine function, particularly the thyroid gland. Juniper communis: Juniper comunis is an evergreen tree that has historically been used to treat gout, cancer, warts, urinary tract conditions, and more. It has carminative and anti-inflammatory actions and is therefore useful for the GI tract and rheumatic conditions. Saw palmetto: Also called Serenoa repens, saw palmetto is native to the Caribbean Islands and the Southeastern USA. Serenoa contains flavonoids, fatty acids, and sterols which inhibit DHT (a type of testosterone) from binding to receptors. Therefore serenoa has been used effectively to treat people with prostate disease and PCOS or other conditions with elevated testosterone levels. Traditional use also suggests saw palmetto can help increase appetite and energy levels. Prickly ash bark: Prickly ash bark was used medicinally in some Native American tribes to treat sore throats, upset stomach, infections of the skin, and aching muscles. Later herbalists used prickly ash bark to stimulate digestion and nervous system function, to treat rheumatic conditions, and as an alternative to help the body fight infections and recover from disease.

ENDOCRINE SYSTEM SUPPORT CN-ENDOCRINE - AN ENDOCRINE ORGAN & HORMONE BALANCING SUPPORT FORMULA This herbal tincture is specially formulated to support the endocrine organs and balance hormone production.

ABOUT THE FORMULA Eleutherococcus senticosus: Healers have used Eleutherococcus for 2000 years. This adaptogenic herb targets adrenal function. It may improve attention, alleviate depression, and increase tolerance to stress. It is useful for people who are debilitated from cardiovascular disease and other chronic health conditions. Kelp: is traditionally used to support endocrine function, particularly the thyroid gland. This seaweed offers a concentrated source of minerals such as iodine, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and iron. Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens): berries: contain flavonoids, fatty acids, and sterols which inhibit DHT (a type of testosterone) from binding to receptors. Saw palmetto, therefore, has been used to treat people with prostate disease, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), and other conditions with elevated testosterone levels. Traditional use also suggests saw palmetto can help increase appetite and energy levels. Parsley root (Petroselinum crispum): is a potent diuretic and tones the urinary tract. Parsley root has been used historically to help the following conditions: urinary tract disorders, digestive problems, liver disease, painful menstruation, high blood pressure, allergies, and bronchitis. Some herbalists suggest that parsley root can help hypoglycemia caused by adrenal malfunction. Astragalus membranaceus: is an adaptogen used extensively in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a Qi (chi) tonic. Astragalus has affinity for the immune system and is often combined with ginseng to improve stamina and energy levels. Astragalus may also increase bile flow to improve appetite and digestion. Alfalfa leaf: is thought to be an alternative for the endocrine system. Alfalfa may also support digestion by stimulating the flow of bile. Alfalfa has a high nutrient content including protein, calcium, zinc, iron, and vitamins A, B1, B6, C and K. It is well indicated for a deficient person with lack of appetite and general weakness. Prickly as bark: is a North American plant that has been used medicinally as a digestive aid and to strengthen the nervous system. Herbalists have used prickly ash (also called Zanthoxylum) for a wide variety of complaints including toothache, sore throat, upset stomach, and more. Black cohosh: is an herb first used by Native American Indians for the treatment of women’s health issues. Black cohosh has become a commonly used treatment for menopause, premenstrual syndrome, painful menstruation, acne, weakened bones, and for starting labor in pregnant women. Black cohosh has been utilized for anxiety, rheumatism, fever, sore throat, and coughing as well. Chaste Tree Berries: are commonly used to make medicine and are sometimes referred too as “the women’s herb”. Premenstrual syndrome and menopause are just a few of the issues Chaste Tree Berries are used to help. Some men who used this fruit found an increased flow of urine. This fruit has also shown some improvement with acne, nervousness, dementia, joint conditions, colds, upset stomach, spleen disorders, headaches, migraine, eye pain, and body inflammation. 57

ENDOCRINE SYSTEM SUPPORT THYROID SUPPORT - A THYROID GLAND SUPPORT FORMULA If you feel sluggish and tired, have difficulty losing weight, have dry skin, hair loss, constipation or cold sensitivity, it could be all related to hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is far more prevalent than once thought. In fact, the latest estimates are that 20-30 million Americans have hypothyroidism, but the actual numbers are probably higher. Estimates are that percent of Americans have suboptimal thyroid function. Additionally, thyroid hormones are used by every cell of your body to regulate metabolism and body weight by controlling the burning of fat for energy and heat. Proper levels of very specific vitamins and mineral play a key role in a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to have a healthy thyroid and efficient metabolism, and even comprises a large part of the thyroid hormone molecule itself. This means that your thyroid problem could actually be an vitamins and mineral deficiency problem. Containing 13 unique vitamins, minerals, and herbs that are critical for healthy thyroid function, Thyroid Support Formula has been scientifically and synergistically blended to contain the essential vitamins and minerals needed to help support proper thyroid gland function. Vitamin B12: The most chemically complex of all vitamins, B-12 plays an extremely important role in the body including normal thyroid function. Vitamin B12 deficiency is related to hypothyroidism and worsens hypothyroidism. Unfortunately, both deficiencies can go unnoticed and they can be difficult to diagnose. Iodine: Iodine deficiency is the leading cause of hypothyroidism worldwide and is one of the three most common nutritional deficiencies seen today. Iodine has four important functions in your body: 1) stabilization of metabolism and body weight 2) brain development in children 3) fertility 4) optimization of your immune system (iodine is a potent anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic, anti-viral and anti-cancer agent). While iodine levels have fallen, there have been simultaneous increases in rates of thyroid disease, breast cancer, fibrocystic breast disease, prostate cancer, and obesity in American adults, and an increase in mental retardation and developmental delays in American children. Magnesium: Magnesium is a very important mineral for people with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions. Numerous research studies show that people with hyperthyroidism are commonly deficient in magnesium. Hypothyroidism is a known factor for increased risk of congestive heart failure. Hypothyroidism also makes it less likely patients with congestive heart failure will recover. Magnesium deficiencies contribute to this by causing a general weakness in heart condition, and lack of blood circulation, as well as reducing thyroid function. Zinc: Zinc is required in the conversion process of thyroid hormones. Zinc is present in the process of inactive thyroid hormones being transformed into active thyroid hormones. Further, Zinc is required for the TRH hypothalamus hormone to initiate the pituitary gland, which then stimulates the thyroid gland to secrete thyroid hormone. Lastly, Zinc is utilized at the intracellular level to assist the thyroid receptors to properly attach. (Continued) 59

www.ChiroThin.com â&#x20AC;˘ 877.377.7636


Selenium: Studies show that a deficiency of selenium is clearly correlated with thyroid function impairment. An underactive thyroid is many times directly connected to low levels of T3. Selenium has been shown to play a significant role in the production of T4. Thus, a selenium deficiency may contribute to a development of hypothyroidism. Copper: Copper is known to possess an essential capacity in thyroid metabolism, principally in thyroid hormone manufacturing and absorption. Copper acts to trigger the production of T4, while also precluding the blood cells ability the over-absorb T4 by adjusting the body’s cell permeability levels. Additionally, Copper is required for the activation of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). Manganese: Manganese is an important co-factor for many different enzymes, and it is an essential component of thyroxine, arguably the most important hormone in the thyroid gland. Proper functioning of the thyroid gland and its hormonal synthesis benefits a wide variety of health issues in the body, including weight loss, appetite, metabolism, and organ system efficiency. Molybdenum: Molybdenum is not very well-known by most people, however, it is actually a very important trace mineral which acts as a key component of helping the body maintain a proper pH equilibrium. If the pH levels are too low, oxygen levels are decreased, which results in a lower metabolism, therefore burning less fat. Molybdenum also interacts with enzymatic systems to influence overall well-being and carbohydrate metabolism. L-Tyrosine: L-Tyrosine is an amino acid which plays a critical role in the manufacturing of thyroid hormones T3 and T4. Active in the metabolic process, L-Tyrosine combines with iodine to synthesize thyroid hormones necessary to effectively transform or metabolize calories from the food we eat into usable energy. Tyrosine also plays an essential part in the production of hormones such as dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine which affect mood levels. Schizandra: Schizandra berry acts to promote hormonal balance and stabilize normal organ functioning when the body encounters environmental, physical, or mental stress. It has been shown to protect the adrenal glands from the damaging forces of stress. Additionally, this powerful berry provides a potent antioxidant activity that contributes to elevated energy levels, healthy metabolic levels, improved mental performance, and stamina. Ashwagandha: Studies have illustrated that Ashwagandha Root properties directly affect the thyroid tissue to activate an increase in serum amounts of thyroid hormones. In addition to boosting thyroid hormone secretion, Ashwagandha helps protect the thyroid from stress Bladderwrack: Bladderwrack has been shown to positively improve the regulation and functioning of the thyroid gland, as well as to promote the production of thyroid hormones in an underactive thyroid. Bladderwrack has also been referenced in its’ ability to augment issues of lipid imbalances associated with poor thyroid functioning, therefore, promoting weight loss. Cayenne: Another herbal boon for those suffering from thyroid problems, Cayenne not only helps in improving the blood circulation inside the body, it also greatly strengthens and enhances the heartbeat of the individual, both of which are the results of thyroid problems. Ameliorated blood circulation as well as a strengthened heartbeat helps ensures a healthy fight against thyroid symptoms and causes. 60

ORGAN/SYSTEM SUPPORT CN-GALLBLADDER - A GALLBLADDER FUNCTION, DIGESTIVE TRACT FUNCTION, & NUTRIENT ABSORPTION SUPPORT FORMULA Many individuals assume that heartburn, indigestion, gas and reflux are caused by overproduction of stomach acid. This common misconception has been strongly re-enforced by our conventional medical profession, whose practitioners routinely prescribe stomach acid blocking medications at the slightest sign of stomach dysfunction, often neglecting to provide patients with dietary recommendations. ChiroNutraceutical is breaking through nutritional boundaries with CN-Gallbladder, an advanced synergistic enzyme formula with a unique blend of Betaine HCL, ox bile, pancreatin, pepsin, glutamic acid plus gentian root to support digestive tract function and nutrient absorption the natural way.

ABOUT THE FORMULA Stomach Acid: Many individuals assume that heartburn, indigestion, gas, and reflux are caused by overproduction of stomach acid. This common misconception has been strongly reinforced by our conventional medical profession, whose practitioners routinely prescribe stomach acid blocking medications at the slightest sign of stomach dysfunction, often neglecting to provide patients with dietary recommendations. The Symptoms of Over and Under Production Are the Same: Strangely enough, the symptoms of stomach acid (hydrochloric acid, HCL) over-production and under production are virtually identical. It is therefore unwise to jump to conclusions regarding whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s occurring in the stomach without actual testing. Betaine HCL: Betaine HCL provides a source of hydrochloric acid, which is not considered a digestive enzyme, but is necessary for the proper functioning of enzymes. Due to the over utilization of antacids, medications, lack of fiber, too much sugar, alcohol, fast foods and processed foods, many people are suffering from symptoms of low stomach acid. These symptoms may include bloating, gas, pain, yeast infections, skin conditions including acne rosaeca, constipation and diarrhea. (Continued)

Pepsin and glutamic acid: These ingredients are needed in order to break down proteins into polypeptides. Those who take over-the-counter or prescription antacids actually may be doing more harm than good in that they may be hindering part of the digestive process. Additionally, it is thought that some food allergies, especially dairy and wheat are related to partially digested proteins passing through the intestinal wall. Since antacids decrease the effectiveness of pepsin, thereby increasing the number of partially digested proteins that can pass through to the intestine, it may be that antacids actually may increase the risk of food allergy development. Gentian Root Extract: Gentian Root Extract has the ability to stimulate the appetite, stimulate the secretion of saliva and gastric juices, and accelerate the emptying of the stomach. Gentian was very effective in relieving the symptoms of indigestion and heartburn in human subjects. Gentian root has also been shown to reflexively stimulate the gallbladder and pancreas, and mucous membranes of the stomach, thus contributing to an increased secretion of digestive juices and enzymes. Oxbile: Oxbile is excreted by the liver and stored in the gallbladder until needed to assist in digestion of lipids, or fats. Bile salts, which are the active components of the bile, assist in breaking down cholesterol and other fat components in the intestines. Supplemental bile extract helps emulsify fats and promotes absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins K, A, D and E. A deficiency of bile production, or decreased excretion of bile by the gallbladder can lead to gallstones. These gallstones are formed from various combinations of cholesterol, concentrated bile, minerals and pigments. Pancreatin: Pancreatin is a combination of the digestive enzymes including lipase, amylase and protease. These enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are important in the digestion of fats, starches and proteins. Pancreatin is used to replace digestive enzymes which the pancreas does not produce on its own. Certain medical conditions and medications contribute to the lack of enzyme production including pancreatic surgery, inflammation of the pancreas, pancreatic cancer and cystic fibrosis.

ORGAN SYSTEM SUPPORT CN-LIVER - A LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FUNCTION SUPPORT FORMULA This herbal tincture is specially formulated to support optimal functioning of the liver and gall bladder. These organs are crucial for healthy digestion and detoxification.

ABOUT THE FORMULA Chlorella has become a popular addition to liver detoxification formulas. Chlorella is a highly nutritious single-celled alga, somewhat similar to spirulina. The “broken cell” version of chlorella refers to the manufacturer of the product breaking the outer cell wall of the microorganism to improve it’s digestability and absorption rate. Some research indicates that chlorella may attenuate oxidative stress and relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia. It also shows promise for enhancing immune function and stamina. Milk thistle, also known as Silybum marianum, is a hepatic trophorestorative, meaning that this herb protects and restores function of the liver. It has been shown to successfully treat non-alcoholic and alcoholic liver damage, cirrhosis, fatty liver, and more. Milk thistle is also helpful in cases of exposure to chemical pollutants like drugs, solvents, halogenated hydrocarbons, and more. Dandelion root is a bitter herb used to stimulate digestion and promote liver and gall bladder health. This common weed contains many nutrients and all parts of the plant have been used for medicine or for food. Dandelion root acts as an alterative to improve conditions of chronic toxicity, decreased immune function, eczema, cholecystitis, hepatitis, and more. Burdock root, also called Arctium lappa, is an alterative which promotes digestion and elimination and supports liver health. In Japan the root is still eaten as food. Like dandelion, burdock acts slowly and gently and must be taken over long periods of time for optimal results. Artichoke (Cynara) is a powerfully bitter plant that stimulates digestion. It has been used to treat liver inflammation, like hepatitis, and to reduce oxidative damage to the liver from environmental toxins. Bupleurum falcatum is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to regulate gastrointestinal and liver function. Bupleurum also acts as an antiinflammatory agent, supports immune function, and protects the liver, kidney, and other organs from toxic damage. Cilantro (Coriander sativum) is used both as a culinary and a medicinal herb. Both the seeds (‘coriander’) and the leaf (‘cilantro’) have been used by herbalists and chefs alike! Although well known as an aid to digestion, this herb may also have some benefit in supporting the body’s ability to detoxify. Fumitory (Fumaria) is thought to be depurative (detoxifying) and amphoteric (restoring balance of an organ’s function), with a special affinity for the gall bladder. Herbalists have used fumaria to tonify the digestive system, stimulate the release of digestive enzymes, treat skin eruptions, and enhance liver detoxification. Fringe tree is a North American plant that has traditionally been used to stimulate liver, spleen, and pancreatic function. It is said to enhance the flow of bile from the liver and gall bladder. Fringe tree, also called Chionanthus virginicus, should not be used in cases of acute cholelithiasis (gall stones). 69
