HEART HEALTH

ENERGISE YOUR CELLS WITH

CoQ10

Have you ever wondered where you get the energy to do everything you need to do in a single day?

That doesn’t sound like enough to power a large, complicated organism like the human body, does it?

Your initial response might be to assume that your energy comes from the food you eat – and to a certain extent that’s true. However, your food doesn’t contain energy as such. Instead, it provides you with the building blocks your cells need to produce energy.

But ATP undergoes a continual regeneration process, so during the course of a day, your turnover of this all-important fuel source is roughly equivalent to your body weight, and that gives you enough energy to keep your heart beating, your muscles moving and your brain cells firing – and to power almost everything else your body needs to do too.

Mitochondria – your body’s batteries

CoQ10 – nature’s spark plug

The production of cellular energy occurs in structures called mitochondria, which are present in almost all your cells, and are sometimes referred to as the body’s ‘powerhouses’ or ‘batteries’.

Importantly, none of this can happen without CoQ10, which is vital for the production of ATP.

It’s here that the glucose obtained from your food goes through a complex series of chemical reactions that ultimately lead to the production of a compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy source that powers virtually all of your bodily functions. At any one point in time, your body contains around 250 grams of ATP, which provides a similar amount of energy to that stored in a single AA battery.

10

In fact, you could think of the mitochondria as your body’s batteries, and CoQ10 as the spark plug that kick-starts their ability to produce ATP. The mitochondria and CoQ10 work together to replenish your energy reserves. As you’d expect, that makes CoQ10 particularly important for organs that require large amounts of energy in order to function – think the heart, skeletal muscles, and the liver, just for a start.

COQ10 IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT FOR HELPING TO MAINTAIN OLDER PEOPLE’S CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH.

What else does CoQ10 do? CoQ10 is also a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger that helps reduce the effects of oxidative stress in the body, so it aids healthy circulation and helps to maintain general wellbeing – often working in synergy with selenium.

energy production and help maintain antioxidant defences. It’s also considered sufficient to help support a healthy heart, peripheral circulation, and immune function. However, your healthcare professional may recommend higher doses in some circumstances.

Among other functions, CoQ10 also replenishes the antioxidant activity of Vitamin E.

CoQ10 is both produced by the body and consumed in the diet. However, some of the richest sources of dietary CoQ10 are foods we rarely eat these days (like kidneys, liver and other organ meats), so dietary CoQ10 intake is now believed to be lower than it was in previous generations, and may have declined to as little as 3-6mg per day. Unfortunately, the body’s ability to produce CoQ10 declines with age, and as a result, supplementation may be particularly important for helping to maintain the general wellbeing – and especially cardiovascular health – of older people. How much CoQ10 should you take? For most people, 150mg of CoQ10 per day is considered an adequate amount to support cellular

CoQ10 LEVELS

Where do you get CoQ10?

As you get older, your CoQ10 levels decline markedly – especially in hard-working organs like your heart, pancreas, lungs, kidneys and adrenal glands2. References: 1. Onur S, et al. BioFactors 2015;41(1):35-43 2. Kalen A, et al. Lipids 1989;24(7):579-84

GILBERT COVENTRY

LAWN MOWING ISN’T A CHORE. IT’S EXERCISE. Not satisfied with mowing his own lawns, Gilbert has also taken on mowing his neighbour’s lawns. And the one across the street. Four properties in all. Wouldn’t we all love a neighbour like him? Lawn mowing combines two major influences in his 77-year history – tinkering with machines and getting outdoors. For 39 years, until his retirement in 2005, Gilbert worked on the railways as a plant mechanic. This included fixing and maintaining various pieces of equipment that keep our trains going. In the latter part of his career, he was all over the state replacing old wooden sleepers with modern concrete ones. These days, his tinkering is on a somewhat smaller scale. To keep his lawnmower and whipper snipper going, he often uses second-hand parts he’s salvaged from a mate’s discarded machine. Besides his lawn mowing, the ‘getting outdoors’ aspect of this busy man’s life is also satisfied by his 4 x 4 Motor Home. As members of the Campervan Motor Club of Australia (CMCA), Gilbert and his wife of 54 years, Patricia, have been “all over Australia”. This includes several trips across the Nullarbor to Perth and one holiday when a group of 10 members

of the club took off in their various motor homes, campervans, and caravans for a quick trip… for five months! Gilbert* has been an ANC customer for 15 years and started on our one-a-day CoQ10 supplement when we first introduced it in 2007. He lives nearby to Australian NaturalCare, so instead of us mailing out his regular order, he prefers to drop by to pick it up himself and to “just keep in touch”. Like many we know who’ve been taking CoQ10, Gilbert is a prime example of CoQ10’s long term benefits. Gilbert says, “It keeps me going. I don’t get tired when I’m mowing. People don’t believe me when I tell them how old I am.” Not so long ago he went to his doctor for a checkup. “She couldn’t find anything wrong with me”, he says proudly. Sounds like it’s not only Gilbert benefitting from CoQ10, but his neighbours as well! * It’s always Gilbert. Not Gil or Bert. Although, in his latter working years, there were those who called him “Dad”.

It keeps me going. I don’t get tired when I’m mowing. People don’t believe me when I tell them how old I am.

DON PROUT

AT AGE 87, DON IS THINKING ABOUT RETIREMENT. KIND OF. The firm of D. Prout & Co Pty Ltd, electrical contractors, was established by Don in the small town of Tyabb (35 miles/57 km south of Melbourne) quite some time ago. It’s still in operation today, run by his son Andrew. And while Don could be excused for enjoying the fruits of retirement, he and his wife Shirley are still very active in the company, doing paperwork, keeping accounts up to date, that kind of thing. There’s certainly no shortage of energy levels in this couple. Don played Australian Rules Football for 20 years. He also played cricket (sometimes two matches on a weekend), golf and bowls, and he kept a boat at the marina for fishing “in his spare time”. “Even gave croquet a bit of a go,” he says. He played kettle drum in his school band and then for the Salvos. Exhausted yet? As they say in the ads, “But wait, there’s more.” 46 years ago, Don, was invited to become an inaugural member of the Hastings Rotary Club. Just about every Monday night of the year since then he has gone off for a meal and a meeting (which usually involves a guest speaker) at the club. He’s a past President, and he and Shirley (a member of the Rotary-Anns) have both been honoured with the Paul Harris Fellowship which, if you know about Rotary is, for want of a better term, a big deal.

14

If you look up the Probus Club you’ll find it described as “an association of active retirees who join together in clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities for them to keep their minds active, expand their interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends”. Retirees! Don must have snuck in. To say his life is, and has been, “active” is a bit of an understatement. And it’s little wonder that both he and Shirley have been long term customers of ANC and have been taking CoQ10 for the past 10 years or so. We call it the “get up and go” supplement and Don is fond of playing that line back to us. He reckons CoQ10 helps sharpen his mind and gives him that bit of extra energy when he needs it. Taking it means he “doesn’t feel lazy or tired”. For, although at 87, his halcyon sporting days may be past, he still wants to feel up to doing the lawns, washing the car… and then there’s the trip to Lakes Entrance soon. “Might just pack the bowls in case we want to have a roll up when we get there,” he says.

CoQ10

THE ATHLETE’S ANTIOXIDANT

Developing a consistent exercise habit is one of the healthiest decisions you can make – but if you exercise regularly, you should also think about taking a CoQ10 supplement. Exercise is renowned for its beneficial effects on body weight and heart health, but it also has a myriad of other health benefits, including helping to reduce the risk and impact of cognitive, musculoskeletal and blood sugar problems as you get older. It also helps to maintain a healthy psychological outlook and promotes restful sleep. However, the muscle contractions that occur during exercise also trigger the generation of free radicals – volatile cells with the capacity to damage the tissue. Under optimal circumstances, the free radicals generated by exercise don’t have detrimental effects on your muscles because their presence is offset by that of your body’s own antioxidants, which quench the free radicals and enable homeostasis to be maintained. Unfortunately though, if that homeostasis is disturbed (for example, by inadequate antioxidant levels or excessive amounts of free radicals), the muscle tissue may be damaged and become more prone to fatigue. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant and when taken as a supplement, may be of particular benefit to athletes and regular exercisers by helping to maintain appropriate antioxidant balance in the muscle tissue. By providing the building blocks for cellular energy production, CoQ10 may also help meet the energy demands of, which are increased during periods of intense physical activity.

SUPPORT YOUR HARD-WORKING HEART Did you know that if your blood vessels were laid out end-to-end, wrap around the earth two-and-a-half times? The heart pumps up to 100,000 times a day to ensure that a steady stream of blood reaches every millimetre of your arteries, veins, and capillaries. These actions officially make it the busiest organ in your body. Taking a CoQ10 supplement supports your hard-working heart and assists with healthy circulation. It may be particularly beneficial for older people, because our own production of CoQ10 declines as we age.

COQ10 150MG ONE-A-DAY GET UP & GO CoQ10 150mg One-A-Day Get Up & Go provides an optimal dose of CoQ10 in a single convenient capsule. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that supports healthy heart, cardiovascular and immune system function, helps inhibit the harmful oxidation of LDL-cholesterol (‘bad’ cholesterol), and replenishes the antioxidant activity of vitamin E. It’s also involved in the production of ATP, the energy source that fuels all bodily processes.

KATIE TOMKIES

THERE’S JAM AT THE END OF THE LINE. Not “a jam”, just jam. When tourists hop on board the sleek, silver, Savannahlander train to head off into the middle of North Queensland, they probably aren’t expecting to be met at the Mount Surprise stop by the sprightly 80-year-old Katie Tomkies, jam maker. The story goes that Katie was making jam from some local produce one time, when she overdid it a bit and ended up with more jam than she knew what to do with. Given that she lives in a town with only about 50 full time residents, there wasn’t much of a market for her excess product. But there was the train. Katie’s one of those “When life deals you lemons, make lemonade” kind of people. And when she takes something on, she believes in doing it well. So, once a week, the Savannahlander pulls into Katie’s home town. As the tourists pile out onto the platform, one of the first sights they’ll see is a market stall operated by Katie and her husband, author Richard Tomkies. Katie sells them jams. Richard sells them books.

16

At age 80, Katie knows a thing or two about staying healthy. Out here (the nearest supermarket is 2½ hours away), when you get sick, you call the Royal Flying Doctor. “You are what you eat,” is her mantra. But even with all the fresh tropical fruit and vegetables she grows in their own garden, Katie still believes in the need to supplement her and Richard’s diet. Katie did some research and discovered CoQ10’s role in supporting heart health and how at their age, their natural levels of CoQ10 could be down as much as 60% on what they were when they were 20. They’ve both been taking the supplement ever since. “It keeps you going”, she says. “We all should be taking it.” Katie Tomkies - as a gardener, a manufacturer and a retailer, she knows she needs all the ‘get up and go’ she can get.

CoQ10 keeps you going”, she says. “We all should be taking it.

CHOLESTEROL? THINK COQ10!

Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is one of the smartest things you can do for your heart and blood vessels. If you’re keen to look after yours, CoQ10 should be on your shopping list. Here’s why. Along with other issues such as smoking, being overweight, and leading a sedentary lifestyle, high levels of cholesterol and other blood lipids are a risk factor for heart disease. In particular, oxidised cholesterol (cholesterol that’s been subjected to free radical damage) is considered particularly detrimental to heart and blood vessel health. To manage your cholesterol, it’s best to take a holistic approach based around an active lifestyle and a balanced, nutritious diet that’s low in unhealthy fats and contains an abundance of fruit, vegetables and legumes, plus moderate quantities of nuts, seeds and their oils. Eating in this nourishing way helps to minimise the quantity of cholesterol-elevating foods in your diet, while also providing plenty of fibre to aid the excretion of cholesterol. Importantly, the naturally occurring antioxidants found in fruit, vegetables and healthy oils help protect cholesterol from free radical damage, helping to offset the impact it has on your blood vessels. CoQ10 may provide additional support for healthy people looking to maintain their cholesterol health. As a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger, it helps to inhibit the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol (sometimes referred to as ‘bad’ cholesterol) and other plasma lipoproteins.

Other cardiovascular benefits of CoQ10 include helping to support healthy heart function and maintain healthy circulation. It also provides the building blocks for the cellular production of energy (in the form of adenosine triphosphate, ATP) that the heart needs in order to function.

GET UP & GO COQ10 50MG CoQ10 is important for the production of ATP, the energy source that fuels all bodily processes. It’s also a powerful antioxidant that supports healthy heart function, cardiovascular health and immune system function, and helps inhibit the harmful oxidation of LDLcholesterol (‘bad’ cholesterol), and replenishes the antioxidant activity of vitamin E. Get Up & Go CoQ10 50mg may be particularly beneficial for older people because the body’s own levels of coenzyme Q10 diminish with age. It may also help active people meet the heart and skeletal muscles’ cellular energy demands during physical activity. 30 capsules - Order Code 1920 1 bottle $31.90 2 bottles $43.80 SAVE $20.00 CLUB 4 $15.95 SAVE $15.95 Each capsule contains: Ubidecarenone (coenzyme Q10) 50mg.

HEART HEALTH

ARTICHOKE AIDS CHOLESTEROL MANAGEMENT Artichoke (also known as globe artichoke) may help healthy people maintain healthy cholesterol levels. It works in two ways: firstly by decreasing the liver’s production of cholesterol, and secondly by increasing the conversion of cholesterol into bile acids so that it can be excreted via the bowel. Medicinally active constituents in artichoke may have additional benefits for cholesterol health by helping to inhibit free radical damage (oxidation) of LDL-cholesterol molecules.

CHOLESTEROL CARE Concerned about cholesterol? Cholesterol Care has been specially formulated to help healthy people maintain normal, healthy cholesterol, blood lipids, homocysteine metabolism and blood sugar levels, and can also help inhibit the oxidation of LDLcholesterol (‘bad’ cholesterol) and enhance healthy liver, gall bladder and digestive function. Cholesterol Care combines a high potency dose of artichoke (clinically proven to assist normal cholesterol levels in healthy people), along with turmeric, garlic, cinnamon, folic acid, chromium and vitamins B6 and B12.

BERGAMOT FOR BETTER BLOOD LIPIDS Bergamot is a species of citrus native to Calabria in Southern Italy, with a fruit that shares some of the characteristics of oranges, lemons and grapefruit, all of which it’s closely related to. Compared to those citrus fruits, the juice and pith (the white, inner part of the rind) of the bergamot fruit are particularly rich in compounds called flavonoids and polyphenols. The unique blend of these constituents is considered responsible for bergamot’s positive effects on blood lipids in healthy people.

BERGAMOT CHOLESTEROL PRO Bergamot Cholesterol Pro supports cardiovascular health by helping healthy people maintain normal cholesterol, triglyceride and blood sugar levels, and a healthy balance between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol (also known as the LDL:HDL ratio). Bergamot also has powerful antioxidant properties, and may help reduce the harmful effects of free radical damage (oxidation) on LDLcholesterol. Highly concentrated formula with vitamin C for additional cholesterol management in healthy people, blood vessel support and antioxidant benefits. Equivalent to 75 grams of fresh bergamot juice per tablet.

DON’T LET STIFF JOINTS SLOW YOU DOWN! Do your joints take a little while to get moving in the morning, or feel stiff and tight when you’re walking or going up or down stairs? Joint stiffness becomes increasingly common as we get older, and along with other symptoms such as aches and pains, is often indicative of osteoarthritis. Far from being a reason to sit back and take things easy, joint stiffness and other osteoarthritis symptoms are reminders that when it comes to your flexibility and mobility, staying active is vital. In fact, experts recommend that people with osteoarthritis get at least 30 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week – just like everybody else. Jogging and high-intensity aerobic classes are not good choices because of the heavy load they place on your joints. However, unless your healthcare professional advises otherwise, there are plenty of low-impact forms of exercise that will help get your heart pumping and keep your muscles and joints moving – including walking, strength training, swimming and aqua aerobics.

In clinical research, the curcumin extract used in this product has been shown to improve mobility and help reduce the impact of osteoarthritis on social and leisure activities. For example, in one clinical study*, people with osteoarthritis who took curcumin extract in doses similar to those found in Curcumin AntiInflammatory Pain Reliever, were able to walk more than twice as far on a treadmill as those who didn’t take the supplement. These results started to occur after just two months of treatment with curcumin, and were further improved after three months. The study participants also experienced significant improvements in joint pain and other arthritis symptoms.

ALAN & MARY MEREDITH HIP PAIN NO SURPRISE TO MINING MAN. Heavy equipment operator Alan Meredith, wasn’t really surprised when he started getting serious hip pain. Many in his line of work had experienced similar problems. ‘Occupational hazard’ he thought. Alan operates bulldozers and loaders all day around the mines in Western Australia. Sitting down all day, being bounced around as he carved his way through some pretty rough terrain, driving some of the equipment in a sideways position – sooner or later, it would almost inevitably take its toll. Alan is one of those FIFO (fly in, fly out) mine workers we read about. 4 weeks on, 1 week off. In the workers’ cabin he was assigned to at the mine, he found a health magazine that a previous occupant had left behind. “You’ll read anything out there,” he says. In the magazine there just happened to be an article on curcumin, the naturally occurring compound found in turmeric. He read about its anti-inflammatory qualities. Alan was already a regular customer of Australian NaturalCare so when he saw that we had a curcumin product he added it to his order.

Pretty soon, the pain in his hip was gone. Alan has since become a bit of an evangelist for Curcumin Anti-Inflammatory Pain Reliever. He thought that if it worked for him, it might work for his 83 year old mum, Mary who’d been having trouble with a shoulder joint. She now takes a Curcumin AntiInflammatory Pain Reliever tablet in the morning and one at night. And that’s it. No pain. He’s also told many of his mates in the mines about it, all of whom have had “very good results”. On his week off, Alan enjoys taking his boat out to go fishing for the big King George Whiting that can be caught off the coast near his home. Small boat. Thumping around on the ocean. Big fish. Strain on the hips. Not a problem for this curcumin taker.

87 YEAR OLD JOYCE HAS PICKED ANOTHER WINNER. Joyce Byrne lives quite close to Brisbane’s Doomben and Eagle Farm race courses. She loves the races and loves living close to the action. In her younger days, she and five of her mates would go every Saturday. One time she suggested go to the sales. “We didn’t plan on buying - we were just looking,” she tells us. An hour or so later they were the proud owners of a racehorse. The price – 121 guineas (121 pounds and 121 shillings). Unlike many, Joyce had picked a winner. They had a lot of fun with that horse and through it, they met many in the racing fraternity. One way or another, her house became “a bit of a refuge” for jockeys and track riders who fell on hard times. They were always made welcome at Joyce’s place. For a birthday surprise one time, a jockey who had been the beneficiary of her big heart, organised a reunion at Brisbane’s famous Breakfast Creek Hotel. Jockeys from all over Australia (some of them now quite famous) attended to thank her for being there for them when they needed it.

A couple of years ago, Joyce started getting severe pain in her ankle. Hefty painkiller kind of pain. Walking stick kind of pain. That was before she discovered curcumin. She read up on its anti-inflammatory properties. She was prepared to give it a go. Her results were impressive. She ordered just one bottle to check Curcumin Anti-Inflammatory Pain Reliever out for herself. Within days she felt relief. Within one month, the pain had gone. That was two years ago and she continues to take curcumin to this day. Joyce has backed more than a few winners in her time but she rates Curcumin Anti-Inflammatory Pain Reliever right up there with the best of them.

CUSHIONING FOR YOUR JOINTS The shock-absorbing and weight-bearing nature of your joints is largely due to the structure of the cartilage that lines them (a matrix containing water, collagen, elastin and compounds called proteoglycans) and the synovial fluid that’s present in the joint capsule. Glucosamine and chondroitin are both used by the body to support the maintenance of the joints’ natural shock-absorbing capacity. For example, glucosamine stimulates the production of proteoglycans to enhance the cushioning properties of the synovial fluid.

FLEXICARE GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN Flexicare Glucosamine & Chondroitin may provide temporary relief of osteoarthritis pain, reduce the associated inflammation and swelling, and help increase joint mobility. Glucosamine and chondroitin are used by the body in the maintenance, repair and rebuilding of healthy cartilage and to support the natural shockabsorbing capacity of the joints. Also contains manganese, which is involved in the synthesis of glycoproteins (the building blocks needed for cartilage synthesis) and vitamin C, which is needed for the formation of healthy collagen, a key component of cartilage.

ARE YOU AT RISK OF OSTEOARTHRITIS?

A number of factors can increase the likelihood that you’ll develop osteoarthritis. Take our quick quiz to find out how many affect you. Osteoarthritis develops as the result of multiple factors that affect the joints and cartilage, only some of which are within your power to change. Use the checklist below to discover some of the issues that may contribute to your current and future joint health.

üYou’re getting older

Your risk of developing osteoarthritis increases with age, not just due to wear and tear, but also because your connective tissue loses strength and elasticity and your capacity for cartilage maintenance and repair declines.

üYou’re overweight

Carrying extra kilos puts a greater load on your joints and strongly increases your risk of developing osteoarthritis of the knee. Non-load bearing joints may be affected too, possibly because being overweight tends to be associated with generalised inflammation.

24

üYou’ve played high-impact sports

Osteoarthritis is more common in people who’ve participated in sports like rugby, soccer, skiing and basketball, which expose your joints to repeated impact and often involve awkward twisting of your knees and/or ankles.

üYou’ve led a sedentary lifestyle

People who haven’t exercised regularly tend to have weaker muscles and poorer posture, which may lead to pressure on the joints.

üYou’ve been a labourer or tradesman

Physically strenuous labour increases your risk of developing osteoarthritis, especially in the joints that have borne the brunt of your hard work. For example, carpet layers often experience osteoarthritis of the knee, while farmers and construction workers are at increased risk of osteoarthritis of the hip, possibly as a result of years of heavy lifting.

WWW.AUSNATURALCARE.COM.AU


JOINT / PAIN RELIEF

üYou have a history of joint injury

Joints that have been injured in the past are more likely to become arthritic as you get older. In particular, injury of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is strongly predictive of subsequent osteoarthritis in the same knee.

üYour parents had osteoarthritis

Genetics contribute to the development of osteoarthritis, so if your mum or dad was severely affected by it, you may be susceptible too. Proactive protection for your joints If you’re experiencing the symptoms of mild osteoarthritis or are worried that you may do in the future, take steps now to help maintain the healthy functioning of your joints. Start by taking a glucosamine supplement such as Flexicare (p. 23), Healthy Joints (see p. 29), Glucosamine 1500 One-A-Day (p. 31) or Vegetarian Glucosamine PLUS (p. 32) to provide the nutritional building blocks for healthy cartilage. Next, consider Curcumin Anti-Inflammatory Pain Reliever (p. 23) to help address inflammation, and/or Aches and Pains Buster (p. 33) as a herbal analgesic. Rose Hip 2.5g (p. 33) may also be beneficial, especially if you’re affected by osteoarthritis of the hand.

üYou’ve been a heavy user of technology

High usage of keyboards, mice, smartphones and tablets is now recognised as a risk factor for the development of osteoarthritis of the wrist and hands.

üYour diet isn’t the best

Free radical activity contributes to the physiological changes of osteoarthritis, and may be exacerbated in people whose consumption of antioxidants is low. In particular, having low levels of vitamin C may increase your risk of developing osteoarthritis of the knee, while high intake may reduce the associated pain and degenerative changes. Low levels of vitamins D or K may also be linked to the development of osteoarthritis.

GET TO KNOW YOUR

KNEE JOINT Strong, flexible knees are vital to your mobility. How much do you know about yours? We usually think of the knee as a single joint where the lower leg meets the thigh, but it actually consists of two. The first is the junction between the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia), and the second is the interface between the tibia and the knee cap (patella).

Developing osteoarthritis in any part of the knee can have a significant impact on your mobility and flexibility, with detrimental effects for your quality of life.

This complex joint structure is a feat of mechanical engineering that gives your legs the ability to stand up straight, bend and flex, and pivot and rotate.

For example, osteoarthritis of the knee may interfere with your ability to walk comfortably, squat down to pick up something you’ve dropped, or carry heavy grocery bags home from the shops.

At the same time, the cushioning properties of the cartilage and synovial fluid that line the joint enable you to carry heavy items and cope with sudden jolts like those you experience when jumping, running or tripping over.

It may also prevent you from participating in certain sports, especially those that involve fast twisting movements or landing on your feet heavily, like running, tennis, netball and soccer.

Osteoarthritis of the knee Nearly one in five women and one in ten men over the age of 60 experience symptoms of osteoarthritis. The knee is the joint most commonly

26

affected, which isn’t surprising when you consider that it’s the largest joint in the human body and bears much of the responsibility for carrying your body weight.

What causes osteoarthritis of the knee? Osteoarthritis occurs when damage to the cartilage causes it to decrease in volume and lose the flexibility that’s so vital to its shock-absorbing capacity.

WWW.AUSNATURALCARE.COM.AU


JOINT / PAIN RELIEF Nutritional support for your knees Specialised cells called chondrocytes are responsible for the formation, maintenance and repair of cartilage, including the production of collagen (which helps give cartilage its elasticity) and proteoglycans (which help give it substance).

AMBASSADOR PROFILE

Glucosamine sulfate helps maintain the structure and function of the knee cartilage by stimulating the activity of the chondrocytes and providing the natural building blocks for the production of proteoglycans. Chondroitin works in a similar way, and is used by the body to maintain and rebuild cartilage and help maintain the shock-absorbing capacity of the joints. When taken for at least a month or two, glucosamine and chondroitin may help to relieve the pain, inflammation, tenderness and stiffness of knee osteoarthritis, and help increase the mobility of the affected joint. Over longer periods, glucosamine sulfate supplements may also help delay some of the degenerative changes associated with osteoarthritis. For example, it may help slow down the rate at which the joint space in the knee narrows during the disease process.

With these changes, the cartilage covering the bone endings gets worn away and the space between the joints becomes progressively narrower, resulting in friction during movement rather than the smooth gliding action that characterises a healthy knee joint.

Other nutrients that are critical to joint health include manganese, which supplies some of the building blocks for cartilage formation, and vitamin C, which is required for the formation of healthy collagen.

Over time, the tissue damage may extend, also affecting the adjacent bones, which sometimes thicken and develop bony spurs. Muscles and nerves in the area may also be impacted due to the changes in the joint structure. The net result is that the knee becomes painful, inflamed and stiff, and your flexibility and mobility may be compromised.

RESEARCH UPDATE:

GLUCOSAMINE HELPS MAINTAIN HEALTHY JOINTS Glucosamine sulfate is best known for its outstanding benefits in osteoarthritis, but emerging research confirms that it may also help maintain the health of joints that are not arthritic.

In contrast, the incidence of osteoarthritic changes in the group of women who had not taken glucosamine was more than double, at 11.8%.

A 2016 study conducted in The Netherlands provides evidence for the joint-protecting effects of glucosamine sulfate.

The joint-protecting benefits of glucosamine demonstrated by this study are due to its important function as a source of key raw materials the body needs to produce and maintain cartilage.

In this long-term clinical trial, researchers monitored the joint health of 407 women aged 50-60 who were at increased risk of developing osteoarthritis of the knee because they were overweight, but who showed no evidence of osteoarthritic changes on x-ray at the start of the study.

However, glucosamine is not the only nutrient required for healthy joint function. For example, nutritional co-factors like vitamin C and the minerals zinc, manganese and copper may provide additional support – in part due to their actions in maintaining the body’s antioxidant defences.

The study participants were divided into four groups: a control group that took a placebo supplement, a group that were counselled to make diet and lifestyle changes, a group that took 1500mg of glucosamine sulfate per day, and a group that received both glucosamine and a diet and lifestyle program.

12%

Two-and-a-half years later, updated x-rays showed that 5.4% of the women who had taken glucosamine sulfate (either alone or in conjunction with a diet and exercise program) had developed evidence of osteoarthritis in their joints.

DON’T BUY THE WRONG TYPE OF GLUCOSAMINE! The most common forms of glucosamine on the market are glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine hydrochloride. If you didn’t know better, glucosamine hydrochloride might seem like an attractive option because the tablets tend to be smaller and some people find them easier to swallow. But don’t be tempted! There’s a reason we only use glucosamine sulfate here at Australian NaturalCare. That’s because when you look at the body of scientific evidence, glucosamine sulfate comes out way ahead, while glucosamine hydrochloride does not appear to be as effective.

HEALTHY JOINTS Healthy Joints helps give temporary relief from arthritis pain, and helps reduce the joint stiffness and inflammation of osteoarthritis. When taken as directed, Healthy Joints provides 1500mg of glucosamine sulfate per day. In several clinical trials, this dose of glucosamine has been shown to help reduce mild-to-moderate osteoarthritis pain and enhance joint flexibility, particularly in the knees. Healthy Joints may also help reduce inflammation and swelling associated with osteoarthritis, and assist with pain relief, tissue repair, and functional improvements when cartilage damage is due to a sporting injury.

Healthy Joints contains glucosamine sulfate, a clinically trialled form of glucosamine that helps regenerate cartilage by providing the body with the compounds called proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, which are the natural building blocks required for the formation of cartilage cells. In addition, glucosamine sulfate stimulates the activity of the cartilage cells (called chondrocytes) and supports the cartilage’s cushioning effect on the joints. In Healthy Joints, glucosamine sulfate is accompanied by the nutritional cofactors vitamin C, citrus bioflavonoids, zinc, manganese and copper, which help maintain connective tissue and cartilage health.

NUTRIENTS FOR

JOINT HEALTH The healthy functioning of your joints involves a wide variety of nutrients. At Australian NaturalCare, we believe that the following are among the most important to factor in to your joint care regime. Glucosamine Glucosamine is required for the formation and repair of cartilage, but your body’s own production of this vital nutrient declines as you get older, making supplementation invaluable. Taken for at least one to two months in doses of 1500mg per day, glucosamine sulfate has been shown to help reduce the pain, inflammation and stiffness of osteoarthritis. It also improves the flexibility and mobility of the joints and helps maintain their ability to function.

Antioxidant minerals – copper and manganese When it comes to joint health, the status of your body’s antioxidant defences is critical. Why? Because degenerative and inflammatory joint diseases such as arthritis are associated with large amounts of free radical activity. Among the most important antioxidants produced by the body are compounds called super-oxide dismutases (SODs), which incorporate trace minerals such as copper and manganese into their structure.

Vitamin C and zinc Vitamin C is best known for its important benefits for immune health, but also performs many other essential functions in the body. For example, it’s essential for the formation of collagen, and consequently is also required for the production of healthy joint cartilage. Zinc also plays a key role in the formation and repair of cartilage and other forms of connective tissue, and the antioxidant properties of both nutrients provide additional support for joint and cartilage health.

DON’T FORGET TO TAKE YOUR GLUCOSAMINE! When it comes to glucosamine, regular intake of 1500mg per day for at least four to six weeks is usually required before the benefits for osteoarthritic joint pain, stiffness and inflammation are noticeable. Its effects on tissue repair and cartilage regeneration may take even longer to occur. If you’re one of those people who tend to forget to take your supplements several times a day, Glucosamine 1500 is the answer! It provides the full daily dose of glucosamine used in the majority of clinical trials, but in a single, convenient tablet, making it easier for you to consistently remember to take it.

In several clinical trials, taking 1500mg of glucosamine sulfate per day has been shown to reduce mild-to-moderate osteoarthritis pain, reduce inflammation associated with arthritis and enhance joint flexibility, particularly in the knees. Glucosamine 1500 may also assist with pain relief, tissue repair, and functional improvements when cartilage damage is due to sporting injury. Glucosamine 1500 contains glucosamine sulfate, a clinically trialled form of glucosamine that helps regenerate cartilage by providing the body with the compounds called proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, which are the natural building blocks required for the formation of cartilage cells. In addition, glucosamine sulfate stimulates the activity of the cartilage cells (called chondrocytes) and supports the cartilage’s cushioning effect on the joints. Glucosamine 1500 is best taken on a regular basis. Results may take four to six weeks to become apparent.

JOINT / PAIN RELIEF

INTRODUCING

VEGETARIAN GLUCOSAMINE Have you been avoiding glucosamine for ethical reasons or because you’re allergic to seafood? Most sources of glucosamine are derived from crustaceans such as prawns, crabs and lobsters, which makes them unsuitable for vegans, vegetarians and people with shellfish allergies.

PLUS have minimal environmental impact and use neither genetically modified strains of bacteria nor wastes from the production of other compounds (which may lead to contamination).

of

For optimal benefits, we’ve combined this pure, vegan source of glucosamine with vitamin C and the potent anti-inflammatory herbs boswellia and ginger in Vegetarian Glucosamine PLUS.

Thankfully, you no longer need to deny your aching joints the benefits of glucosamine, which may help to:

Together, these powerful ingredients work in numerous ways to relieve the symptoms of mild osteoarthritis and help maintain the structural integrity of the joints.

JOINT / PAIN RELIEF

LOOKING FOR

NATURAL PAIN RELIEF? Herbalists around the world have prized particular plants for their analgesic properties for centuries. Here are some of the most important. Willow bark has a long history of use as a pain reliever in Western herbal medicine, and has traditionally been used to relieve headaches and musculoskeletal pain. Its analgesic properties are attributed to its content of a compound called salicin, which has been clinically demonstrated to relieve acute and chronic lower back pain when taken in doses of 240mg/day for at least four weeks. Willow bark may also help to relieve arthritis pain (including the pain of gouty arthritis), other inflammatory conditions, and muscle aches and pains. Corydalis is used to relieve many different types of pain in traditional Chinese medicine, where it’s believed to work by invigorating the flow of blood and Qi (life force energy).

ACHES & PAINS BUSTER Stiff, aching joints? Back pain? Headache? Aches and Pains Buster is the pain reliever and anti-inflammatory that’s versatile enough to address a wide variety of musculoskeletal aches and pains thanks to its therapeutic dosages of three herbal analgesics plus magnesium. Clinical studies have shown that willow bark and ginger relieve osteoarthritic inflammation and joint pain1, willow bark provides temporary relief from low back pain2 and ginger helps relieve period pain3. Also contains corydalis (traditionally used in Chinese medicine for many types of pain) and magnesium, which may help relieve muscle pain, cramps and spasms.

Ginger has traditionally been used to relieve painful spasms in many different parts of the body, including the gastrointestinal, female reproductive and musculoskeletal systems. Its potent antiinflammatory properties have been shown to improve joint mobility and relieve the joint pain, swelling, muscular discomfort and morning joint stiffness of mild osteoarthritis. Ginger has also been shown to relieve period pain (dysmenorrhoea), probably due to its antispasmodic effects. Boswellia is an Ayurvedic herb that’s traditionally been used to relieve arthritic conditions, and like ginger and willow bark, is believed to work in part by inhibiting the body’s inflammatory pathways. Where spasms or cramps are causing or contributing to pain, these herbs are often combined with magnesium, which is important for the normal contraction and relaxation of the muscles.

ROSE HIP 2.5G Suffering from stiff, aching fingers and other joints? Rose Hip 2.5g may assist in the management of osteoarthritis pain and help improve the mobility of arthritic joints. It may be particularly beneficial for osteoarthritis in the joints of the hand, which may impair your ability to perform some of the tasks of daily living or interfere with your enjoyment of activities that involve fine hand movements, such as knitting or playing the piano. Rose Hip’s benefits in osteoarthritis are believed to be due to the presence of compounds called galactolipids.

JOINT / PAIN RELIEF

FISH OIL FOR INFLAMMATION Consuming a diet containing large amounts of animal products such as meat and dairy foods raises your levels of an omega-6 fat called arachidonic acid, which promotes inflammation in the body. In contrast, fats in the omega-3 class (including the EPA and DHA found in fish oil) inhibit the body’s production of inflammatory mediators by displacing arachidonic acid in certain biochemical pathways. This ultimately produces an antiinflammatory effect that may be of benefit in a wide variety of health conditions, including osteoarthritis.

GLUCOSAMINE PLUS FISH OIL Glucosamine Plus Fish Oil combines the joint and cartilage benefits of glucosamine sulfate with the antiinflammatory properties of omega-3 fatty acids to aid in the temporary relief of osteoarthritis pain. In clinical trials, 1500mg of glucosamine sulfate per day has been shown to provide temporary relief from mildto-moderate osteoarthritis pain, reduce inflammation associated with arthritis and enhance joint flexibility. The anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats EPA and DHA may help reduce joint inflammation and increase joint mobility in osteoarthritis. 90 capsules - Order Code 2222 1 bottle $31.90 2 bottles $49.80 SAVE $14.00 Club 4 $15.95 SAVE $15.95 Each capsule contains: Glucosamine sulfate-potassium chloride complex 666.7mg, equiv. to glucosamine sulfate 500mg • Fish oil - natural 500mg, equiv. to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) 90mg, equiv. to docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) 60mg.

WARM UP YOUR ACHING JOINTS You probably think of cayenne pepper as the ingredient that spices up your favourite chilli recipe; but did you know it’s also a powerful herbal medicine that’s been in use for hundreds of years? In the same way that eating chilli creates a burning sensation in your mouth, topical applications of cayenne pepper (Capsicum annuum, as found in Healthy Joints Cream for Pain Relief) warm the skin and underlying tissues. This increases circulation to the area and consequently may help relieve sore and aching arthritic joints.

HEALTHY JOINTS CREAM FOR PAIN RELIEF Soothe your aching joints with Healthy Joints Cream, which combines the warming properties of capsicum (cayenne pepper) with glucosamine, which is used by the body to help protect, maintain and rebuild healthy cartilage. For temporary relief from arthritic pain, gently massage into painful joints three to four times daily. This unscented, nongreasy formula is perfect to use after a long day in the garden or whenever stiff or aching arthritic joints need some tender loving care.

8 REASONS TO TAKE MAGNESIUM Magnesium is required for the cellular production of energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which fuels almost all bodily processes.

Magnesium is needed for strong, healthy bones and supports bone mineral density.

Magnesium is essential for good health and general wellbeing, and is involved in more than 300 of the body’s processes.

8

The diets of more than 1 in 3 Australian adults (and an even greater proportion of older individuals) are deficient in magnesium*.

Are your muscles tense and sore? Magnesium is required for normal muscle contraction and relaxation.

REASONS

Migraine sufferers tend to have lower magnesium levels than other people. Taking supplements may decrease the frequency and severity of migraine episodes.

Do you get muscle cramps? Taking magnesium may help relieve them and decrease their frequency. Magnesium is a key heart health nutrient, required for the proper cardiovascular function.

Which magnesium supplement does all these things – and many, many more? Magnesium Chelate 1000mg from Australian NaturalCare. It’s been specially formulated with magnesium amino acid chelate to allow it to be more easily absorbed by healthy people than some other forms of magnesium.

WHO’S AT RISK OF

VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY? When it comes to vitamin D, some people are more at risk of deficiency than others. If you’re one of them, you need to be extremely proactive about getting enough of this important nutrient, which enhances calcium absorption, helps build strong healthy bones and helps maintain muscle strength. Since we get it from the sun, you’d be forgiven for assuming that it was easy to get enough vitamin D simply by living in Australia. However, huge numbers of Aussies are vitamin D-deficient (see Alarming statistics: Vitamin D deficiency, below). Who’s most at risk? •P  eople living in the southern parts of the country, including Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT, and southern New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia •P  eople over 60 years old, because your skin’s ability to produce vitamin D halves as you age, and your kidneys’ ability to metabolise it declines as well

ALARMING STATISTICS: VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY

•P  eople living in nursing homes or other health institutions, who spend extremely limited amounts of time outdoors •P  eople who always cover up for cultural or religious reasons or to avoid sunburn and UV exposure, and who rarely (if ever) expose more than tiny portions of their skin to the sun •P  eople with naturally dark skin, whose skin produces less vitamin D than that of fair-skinned people •P  eople who are overweight, whose vitamin D stores may get trapped in fatty tissue

How much vitamin D do you need? A daily supplement containing 1000 IU of vitamin D3 is appropriate for most people; however, speak to your healthcare professional regarding the right dose for you. Note: Be sure to choose a supplement containing vitamin D3, which is the natural form of vitamin D, identical to that made by the body.

VITAMIN D3 1000 IU

Around one in four Australians is deficient in vitamin D. These statistics are concerning enough, but become even more alarming when you dig a bit deeper and learn that during the winter months, half of the population of Victoria and the ACT become vitamin D deficient, along with more than 40% of Tasmanians. The scariest part of all? These figures are based on the current Australian guidelines, which estimate an adequate blood level of vitamin D to be 50 nanomoles/Litre (nmol/L) or higher. However, some vitamin D experts believe that double or even triple that amount (100-150 nmol/L) is required for optimal health.

Despite our sunny climate, many Australians have low levels of vitamin D. This important nutrient aids calcium absorption, helps maintain and build healthy bones, and is required for the maintenance of muscle strength. In older people, Vitamin D3 1000 IU may help decrease the risk of falls and fractures. Also assists healthy functioning of the immune system. Contains vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), a natural form of vitamin D identical to that made by the body.

AUSTRALIANS STILL AREN’T GETTING ENOUGH CALCIUM By now, most of us have received the message that maintaining adequate calcium levels throughout our lives is vital for the maintenance of bone health and prevention of osteoporosis as we get older. Despite all the publicity, recent data shows that on average the diets of Australian women in their 50s and 60s contain only around two-thirds the amount of calcium recommended by health authorities. Calcium intake declines even further in women aged over 70, markedly increasing their osteoporosis risk. Men in that age group also consume significantly less calcium than is recommended. Reference: Australian Bureau of Statistics. 4364.0.55.007 Australian Health Survey: Nutrition First Results - food and nutrients, 2011-12. Commonwealth of Australia, 2014.

YOUR DIET MAY BE LOW IN VITAMIN E The importance of vitamin E for heart and circulatory health is well known, as are its potent antioxidant properties. However, data from the US indicates that many people find it difficult to obtain optimal intakes of vitamin E from their diets, possibly because most of us rarely consume vitamin E-rich foods like wheat germ oil, nuts and seeds.

DO YOU FOLLOW A SPECIAL DIET? As many as one in four Australians avoid certain food groups for ethical reasons or because of food allergies or intolerances, while millions of others are dieting for health reasons at any one point in time. Regardless of your reason for eating a restricted diet, doing so may make it difficult for you to get all the nutrients you need from your food – especially if you’re not disciplined enough to stick to a balanced, nutritional diet. Taking just one tablet a day of a multivitamin supplement like Super-Strength Multi-Care helps to ensure that your dietary restrictions don’t mean you’re missing out on key nutrients. Reference: Australian Bureau of Statistics. 4364.0.55.007 Australian Health Survey: Nutrition First Results - food and nutrients, 2011-12. Commonwealth of Australia, 2014.

SENIORS NEED MULTIS TOO As we get older, many of us find ourselves naturally inclined to eat smaller, lighter meals. This decline in appetite is one of the reasons that many older Australians are at risk of becoming undernourished and consequently, vulnerable to a wide range of health problems. Taking a daily multivitamin is an easy way for seniors to top up their diets and ensure they’re getting the vitamins and minerals needed for the maintenance of immune, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal health. It may also help to maintain cognitive function and support healthy memory and concentration.

SUPER-STRENGTH MULTI-CARE Does your diet contain all the nutrients you need? Super-Strength Multi-Care is a high-potency, broad-spectrum formula specially designed to help fill the nutritional gaps that can occur when you’re busy, stressed or not eating well. Includes high doses of the important B-group vitamins (which are required for the production of energy from food and may be beneficial during times of stress), plus a number of antioxidant and immune-supporting nutrients, including zinc and vitamins A, C and E. 30 tablets - Order Code 3411 1 bottle $27.00 2 bottles $44.00 SAVE $10.00 Club 4 $13.50 SAVE $13.50 Each tablet contains: Retinyl palmitate (vitamin A) 750mcg R.E • Cholecalciferol 10mcg (equiv. vitamin D3 400IU) • d-alpha-Tocopheryl acid succinate 124mg (equiv. natural vitamin E 150IU) • Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) 250mg • Thiamine hydrochloride (vitamin B1) 75mg • Riboflavin (vitamin B2) 75mg • Nicotinamide (vitamin B3) 75mg • Calcium pantothenate 75mg, equiv. pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) 66mg • Pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6) 75mg • Folic acid 400mcg • Cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12) 75mcg • Biotin 75mcg • Choline bitartrate 75mg • Inositol 75mg • Citrus bioflavonoids extract 25mg • Rutin 25mg • Hesperidin 2.25mg • Calcium 10mg (as amino acid chelate) • Magnesium 500mcg (as aspartate) • Zinc 1.5mg (as amino acid chelate) • Iron 1mg (as amino acid chelate) • Manganese 800mcg (as amino acid chelate) • Copper 15mcg (as cupric sulfate pentahydrate) • Potassium iodide 65mcg, equiv. to iodine 50mcg • Potassium 2mg (as gluconate) • Potassium 1.38mg (as aspartate) • Petroselinum crispum (parsley) leaf powder 15mg • Herbal extracts equiv. to: Matricaria chamomilla (chamomile) flower dry 15mg • Avena sativa (oats) herb fresh 15mg.

LYSINE 1000

VITAMIN B12 1000MCG

Do you suffer from cold sores? Lysine helps reduce the frequency and severity of cold sore outbreaks and decreases the time they take to heal. It also provides symptomatic relief from cold sore symptoms such as itching, pain and burning, and supports healthy immune system function and the healing of minor wounds. The Herpes simplex virus responsible for cold sores requires large amounts of the amino acid arginine. Lysine competes with arginine for absorption, creating a situation in which lysine levels are relatively high compared to arginine, which may inhibit the replication of the virus.

Are you getting enough vitamin B12? Up to 43% of older people may be deficient in this important vitamin, with vegetarians and people with digestive disorders also being at risk. Vitamin B12 helps maintain healthy red and white blood cells and is required for healthy immune and nervous system function. It also plays an essential part in lowering levels of homocysteine (a marker of inflammation in the body). Great tasting raspberry flavoured tablet that dissolves in the mouth to enhance absorption.

WHY TAKE A B-COMPLEX?

THE B-GROUP VITAMINS WORK CLOSELY TOGETHER IN THE BODY, FUNCTIONING AS COENZYMES IN NUMEROUS METABOLIC PROCESSES, THE MOST IMPORTANT OF WHICH ARE SUMMARISED BELOW.

NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTION

B vitamins are involved in many aspects of nervous system health, including the structure and function of the nerves themselves, and the activity of major stress-busting adrenal hormones and mood-balancing neurotransmitters. Your body’s requirements for B vitamins may therefore escalate when your physical or mental stress levels are high.

MAINTAINING HEALTHY BLOOD

ENERGY PRODUCTION

The body’s processes for converting food into energy require B-group vitamins.

DIGESTION OF FATS AND CARBOHYDRATES B vitamins are needed for the metabolism of carbohydrates and emulsification of fats.

Vitamin B12 and folic acid are essential for the maintenance of healthy blood. They also work with vitamins B2 and B6 in the regulation of the amino acid homocysteine, high levels of which are associated with increased risk of poor cardiovascular health and various other health issues.

SUPER B 50 Stressed? Need more energy? Super B 50 provides nutritional support for the nervous system during times of physical and mental stress and contains high doses of the B-group vitamins required by the body for the conversion of food into energy. Super B 50 also aids digestion (including the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates) and can assist in maintaining healthy blood. Also contains vitamin C, which may be beneficial during times of increased demand. 120 tablets - Order Code 1513 1 bottle $33.90 2 bottles $52.80 SAVE $15.00 CLUB 4 $16.95 SAVE $16.95 Each tablet contains: Thiamine hydrochloride (vitamin B1) 50mg • Riboflavin (vitamin B2) 50mg • Nicotinamide (vitamin B3) 50mg • Calcium pantothenate 55mg, equiv. to pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) 50mg • Pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6) 50mg • Folic acid 400mcg • Cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12) 50mcg • Biotin 50mcg • Choline bitartrate 50mg • Inositol 100mg • Lecithin 50mg • Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) 100mg.

NEED TOPPING UP REGULARLY Since they’re water-soluble, the B-group vitamins aren’t stored in the body, but instead are excreted in the urine. They need to be topped up on a daily basis, especially at times when the body’s demand for them is high, which may occur during times of stress.

SELENIUM 150MCG

CHROMIUM 200MCG

Selenium is essential for healthy thyroid and immune system function, and helps maintain tissue elasticity. It is also required for the production of testosterone, and the healthy development and motility (mobility) of the sperm. Studies show that many Australians don’t obtain the estimated requirements of selenium from their diets, which may lead to suboptimal activity levels of antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase. Contains selenomethionine, a highly bioavailable form of selenium that’s more readily absorbed than some other forms of selenium such as sodium selenite.

Chromium 200mcg helps healthy people maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Chromium is essential for blood sugar control, and is required for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. If your diet contains large amounts of sugar and/or foods made from refined (white) flour such as bread, cakes and pasta, your chromium levels may be depleted and you may benefit from taking Chromium 200mcg. Leading a sedentary or inactive lifestyle also depletes chromium levels. Chromium may also assist in the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels in healthy individuals.

WHAT IS ALPHA LIPOIC ACID? Alpha lipoic acid is a compound that’s produced in small quantities by the body. It’s an important cofactor in many enzymatic pathways, including some of those involved in glucose metabolism and the conversion of carbohydrates to energy. While other antioxidants work only in either watery cellular environments (e.g. vitamin C) or fatty regions (e.g. vitamin E), alpha lipoic acid is unique in its ability to work in both, making it the ultimate free radical fighter! It even helps to regenerate other antioxidants after they’ve been ‘used up’ by free radical activity, and consequently is sometimes referred to as the ‘antioxidant of antioxidants.’

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID 200MG Alpha lipoic acid may help healthy people maintain normal healthy blood sugar levels. It supports glucose metabolism and is involved in the cellular uptake of glucose and the conversion of carbohydrates into energy. In addition, it is a potent antioxidant that supports healthy ageing, helps maintain cardiovascular health and helps protect LDL-cholesterol (‘bad’ cholesterol) from oxidation. Unlike other antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid helps neutralise free radicals in both watery and fatty environments within the body. 90 capsules - Order Code 5416 1 bottle $39.95 2 bottles $59.90 SAVE $20.00 CLUB 4 $19.95 SAVE $20.00 Each capsule contains: R,S-alpha lipoic acid 200mg.

OMEGA-3 OVERVIEW Understanding how the omega-3s and other fats are metabolised and behave in the body is confusing at the best of times, and is made even more complex by the rapidly expanding volume of research in the area. With more than 13,000 scientific papers on the topic published in the last 10 years alone, figuring out the supplement that’s best for you is no easy task. But don’t despair – we asked our technical team to sift through the science so you don’t have to. Fish oil supports heart health and eases arthritis symptoms Fish oil omega-3s have known benefits for heart health. For example, they may help healthy people maintain normal triglyceride levels (an essential component of a heart-healthy lifestyle). Elsewhere in the cardiovascular system, fish oil omega-3s help to maintain peripheral circulation (the blood flow to the head and other extremities). Thanks to the potent anti-inflammatory actions of the omega-3s EPA and DHA, fish oil supplements may also help relieve mild arthritis symptoms

48

such as pain, inflammation and swelling of the joints, while also improving joint mobility. Super-strength supplements are available for those who prefer to take fewer capsules, and enteric-coated fish oil provides an alternative for those concerned about fishy burps and aftertaste. Krill oil – enhanced absorption with antioxidant properties Like fish oil, krill oil is naturally rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. However, krill oil omega-3s have a different chemical structure to those of fish oil, which may mean they’re absorbed more efficiently and utilised by the body in different ways. (Refer to Krill oil: superior omega-3 absorption on page 50 for more details). Among other uses, krill oil may be particularly beneficial for premenstrual symptoms, including period pain, joint pain, breast tenderness, moodiness, stress and irritability.

DHA also supports the health and functioning of the eyes (especially the retina). What about Cod Liver Oil? Compared to other fish oils, cod liver oil is relatively low in omega-3s. Instead, it’s rich in vitamins A and D, which support bone health and the functioning of the immune and respiratory systems. It also helps to maintain healthy eyes and skin.

Unlike other omega-3s, krill oil is also a valuable source of astaxanthin, a powerful natural antioxidant. Calamari supports brain and eye function Calamari oil contains a greater proportion of DHA than other omega-3s. Each 1000mg capsule provides 470mg of DHA – nearly nine times the amount found in a similar quantity of krill oil (70mg per 1000mg capsule) and four times the amount found in fish oil (120mg per 1000mg capsule). This rich concentration of DHA makes calamari oil a particularly good source of omega-3s for those looking to support their brain health and maintain healthy cognitive functioning (mental processing). DHA is found in large quantities in the brain and other parts of the nervous system. It’s especially important for an infant’s brain and nervous system development during pregnancy and the first few years of life. At the other end of the lifespan, DHA also has an important role to play in helping to maintain brain

KRILL OIL: SUPERIOR OMEGA-3 ABSORPTION The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA may be absorbed more easily from krill oil than from fish oil, with important benefits for health and wellbeing.

Due to their phospholipid-based structure, the omega-3s from krill oil appear to be more efficiently absorbed and utilised than the triglyceride-bound omega-3s from fish oil.

The enhanced absorption is due to the chemical structure of krill oil, in which the omega-3s are predominantly bound to compounds called phospholipids. (In contrast, those from fish oil are mostly bound to triglycerides).

They may also be more readily incorporated into the cells and into tissues such as the heart, brain and liver, resulting in enhanced wellbeing.

Phospholipids are the building blocks of our cell membranes, where they form the structure that acts as the boundary between the inside of the cell and the environment outside it. They also act as the cell’s gatekeepers, allowing substances like nutrients, hormones and enzymes in and out of the cell as required, and preventing unwanted substances from gaining entry.

For example, in a study involving older people, brain scans demonstrated that taking 2g of krill oil per day for 12 weeks resulted in enhanced blood flow, oxygenation and activity in areas of the brain involved in some aspects of memory and cognition, which may in turn help to maintain brain function.

KRILL OIL RELIEVES PMS AND PERIOD PAIN In a clinical study involving women with physical, mental and/or emotional manifestations of PMS, taking 2g of krill oil per day was shown to ease a wide range of physical symptoms including menstrual cramping (dysmenorrhoea), sore breasts and joint pain. It also helped to relieve emotional symptoms such as feelings of being stressed, overwhelmed and irritable. The benefits were noticeable after just 45 days of treatment, and improved even more markedly after krill oil was taken for an additional 45 days. Reference: Sampalis F, et al. Altern Med Rev 2003;8(2):171-9

Among other benefits, krill oil may help to maintain healthy functioning of the brain and eyes.

WHAT IS ASTAXANTHIN? The chemical structure of the omega-3 fatty acids renders them easily vulnerable to oxidative stress and free radical damage. However, unlike fish oil, calamari oil and other sources of omega-3s, krill oil comes complete with its very own antioxidant – astaxanthin. Along with its more famous cousins betacarotene and lutein, astaxanthin is a carotenoid. It gives krill oil its distinctive red hue, and you also consume it in prawns, salmon and other seafood of similar colours.

KRILL OIL 1000MG Krill Oil 1000mg is a valuable source of the omega-3s EPA and DHA. These important essential fatty acids are needed for the health of the cell membranes throughout the body.

DHA FOR BETTER BRAIN HEALTH The human brain is extraordinary. It gives us the capacity to learn, remember, pay attention, communicate, understand, reason, make decisions, solve problems and much more.

Many people feel that their brainpower and memory decline slightly as they get older - usually from around the age of 65. At a physiological level, the quantity of grey matter in the brain is declining, as is the amount of DHA in the brain.

Collectively, these functions are known as the cognitive processes, and they’re vital to our wellbeing and ability to operate effectively in the world.

Put simply, there appears to be a link between low levels of DHA and poor memory function.

Along with many aspects of brain function, healthy cognitive function requires the presence of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA, which is widely incorporated into the structure of the brain, especially its cell membranes. DHA is particularly important during foetal development, infancy and childhood, which is when it plays a critical role in the maturation of the brain, nervous system and eyes. DHA is equally important for helping to maintain cognition as we age.

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED KRILL AND CALAMARI OILS The calamari oil used by Australian NaturalCare has been certified as sustainable by Friend of the Sea, an international notfor-profit organisation devoted to protecting the habitat of marine species by promoting sustainable fishing practices. Similarly, our krill oil supplier works voluntarily with the international body responsible for the conservation of marine life in the Antarctic (CCAMLR), and has been audited and approved by leading international conservation groups, the World Wildlife Fund and Marine Sustainably certified by Stewardship Council. Friend of

That’s why it is important for healthy older people to maintain high intakes of DHA; doing so may help to maintain cognitive function and slow down cognitive decline. Calamari oil is a rich natural source of omega-3s and contains a much higher proportion of DHA than fish oil and other omega-3 supplements, so it’s an ideal choice for both mothers-to-be and older people looking to maintain their brain health. Like other omega-3 supplements, calamari oil also has benefits for cardiovascular health and antiinflammatory properties that may help to relieve the symptoms of mild arthritis.

CALAMARI OIL 1000 Each capsule of Calamari Oil 1000 contains a whopping 470mg of DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid vital to healthy brain function. In older people, high DHA intakes may help maintain memory and cognitive functioning, while in unborn babies and growing infants, it’s essential for healthy brain, eye and nervous system development. Calamari Oil 1000 also supports heart health and peripheral circulation, and helps healthy people maintain normal triglyceride levels. It provides temporary relief from arthritic pain, and helps reduce joint inflammation and swelling. 30 capsules - Order Code 6470 1 bottle $39.95 2 bottles $59.90 SAVE $20.00 CLUB 4 $19.95 SAVE $20.00 Each capsule contains: Concentrated omega-3 triglycerides (squid oil) 1g (1000mg), equivalent to: omega-3 triglycerides 600mg, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) 100mg, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) 470mg No added: Corn, sugars, dairy, lactose, wheat, gluten, yeast, preservatives, artificial colours and flavours.

4 IN 5 AUSTRALIANS

LOW IN OMEGA-3S Data from the most recent National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey reveals that 80% of Australian adults consume omega-3 fats in less than optimal quantities. For optimal health and the prevention of chronic disease, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recommends that adult women consume 430mg of omega-3s per day, and that men consume 610mg. Actual consumption of omega-3s falls short of these targets, especially among those who don’t take supplements, 90% of whom have suboptimal intake. Even among people who do take omega-3 supplements, one in two people still falls short of the suggested dietary targets. The survey data also shows that in any given week, the average woman consumes 4.5 times more meat and poultry than seafood, and the average man consumes 6 times as much. This dietary pattern is concerning, because it shifts the balance of fatty acids in the body away from the beneficial, anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats, and instead towards fats that have proinflammatory tendencies. Taking fish oil supplements helps even up the balance and maintain heart and cardiovascular health, including healthy triglyceride levels in healthy individuals. It may also help to reduce the pain, swelling and inflammation of mild arthritis. In particular, pregnant women and those planning to conceive should strongly consider taking

supplements containing the omega-3 fatty acid DHA. Fewer than 10% of Australian women of childbearing age consume DHA in optimal quantities (200mg/day), despite the fact that it is vital for the normal healthy development of the brain, nervous system and retina of the unborn child and growing infant. Reference: Meyer BJ. Nutrients 2016;8:111

FISH OIL 1000MG Fish Oil 1000mg is a rich source of the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA, which help maintain heart health, support healthy triglyceride levels and assist peripheral circulation. Omega-3s may also temporarily relieve arthritis pain and inflammation, and improve joint mobility. DHA is particularly important during pregnancy and infancy, when it is involved in the healthy development of the baby’s brain, nervous system and eyes.

VITAMIN A SUPPORTS MUCOUS MEMBRANES Although you probably don’t think about your mucous membranes very often, they perform several important functions in maintaining your health and wellbeing. For example, the mucous membranes that line your nose, sinuses, throat and lungs play an important role in immune health, acting as your first line of defence against invading organisms. As their name suggests, the mucous membranes also secrete mucus to help flush away viruses and other organisms if you catch an infection. These mucous membranes in your respiratory tract – along with those in your digestive, urinary and reproductive systems – all rely on vitamin A for their function, and cod liver oil is one of the world’s best-known sources of vitamin A.

GINKGO MORE THAN A MEMORY TONIC Ginkgo is best known for its effects on memory, but also has a range of other benefits, mostly because it improves cerebral and peripheral blood flow. Ginkgo’s widespread reputation as a memory tonic is well deserved, as it may help to improve recall, mental alertness, attention span and concentration. These benefits are particularly notable for older people, for whom ginkgo may help to maintain healthy brain function and inhibit cognitive decline. If you’ve noticed that your mental faculties aren’t as sharp as they used to be, it’s possible that changes in your blood vessels have reduced the blood flow to your brain, limiting its access to the large amounts of oxygen and glucose it needs in order to function at its best. Ginkgo improves memory and other aspects of cognitive functioning by promoting blood flow to the brain, which in turn enhances its utilisation of oxygen and uptake of glucose. Other benefits of improved cerebral circulation may include relief from the symptoms of tinnitus (which is often also often caused by insufficient blood flow to the brain) and vertigo. Ginkgo also enhances circulation to other peripheral parts of the body, such as the legs, hands and feet (where it may help to relieve uncomfortably cold hands and feet) and the

genitals (where it may have a positive impact on sexual function). For optimal results, take a high potency supplement like Ginkgo 10,000mg One-A-Day, which has been specially formulated to provide standardised levels of ginkgo’s medicinally active constituents.

GRAPE SEED PROTECTS YOUR BLOOD VESSELS As we get older, our capillaries and other blood vessels often start to lose their integrity and structure, ultimately resulting in tired, aching, swollen legs or the unfortunate development of issues such as spider veins and varicose veins. Grape seed contains potent antioxidants called OPCs, which help strengthen the collagen matrix that provides structural support to the blood vessels. Grape seed helps stabilise and protect the capillary walls, reducing their fragility and improving blood flow to the peripheral areas of the body, including the hands, feet and legs.

GRAPE SEED 12 000MG Grape Seed 12 000mg improves circulatory health, helping to protect and stabilise the capillaries and strengthening weak blood vessels. It may also help aid the management of varicose veins and relieve cold hands and feet.

VITAMIN C FOR IMMUNE HEALTH AND MORE Vitamin C is essential for immune health and famous for helping to fight the common cold – but has a host of other benefits too. Taken long term, vitamin C may help reduce the frequency, severity and duration of colds and other upper respiratory infections, making it particularly valuable for those who tend to catch every virus doing the rounds.

Add bioflavonoids for bioavailability In nature, compounds called bioflavonoids are normally found alongside vitamin C, and many have been shown to have important health benefits in their own right. Since they’re also thought to increase the bioavailability and efficacy of vitamin C in the body, bioflavonoids such as rutin and hesperidin are a valuable addition to your vitamin C supplement.

If you do get a cold, taking vitamin C may provide symptomatic relief from the associated sniffling, sneezing and coughing.

C-COMPLEX SUSTAINED RELEASE PLUS

Vitamin C has important functions outside the immune system too. In particular, it plays a key role in the formation of collagen and the maintenance of connective tissue, cartilage, bone, teeth and gums. Consequently, vitamin C is important for tissue repair, helps heal minor wounds, reduces the tendency to bruise easily, and promotes good bone mineral density. In the cardiovascular system, vitamin C aids in the breakdown, metabolism and excretion of cholesterol, and helps protect cholesterol molecules from free radical damage. Choose sustained release for enhanced absorption The uptake of vitamin C occurs in both the gastrointestinal tract and the kidneys. However, both systems are only able to metabolise a certain amount of it at a time, and when vitamin C levels exceed that threshold, the excess is excreted in the urine. Taking C-Complex Sustained Release PLUS overcomes this issue by breaking down over an eight-hour period, allowing you to absorb a greater proportion of its contents.

FIGHT COLDS WITH VITAMIN C Got a cold? The sooner you start taking vitamin C, the more promptly it’s likely to relieve your symptoms. Take at least 1000mg per day, commencing as quickly as possible after you start feeling sick. Better yet, take vitamin C before you get ill. Doing so may help reduce your chances of catching a cold in the first place and help you experience milder symptoms and a faster recovery time if you do get infected.

SUPER C 1000 Super C 1000 may reduce the severity and duration of colds and mild upper respiratory infections and provide temporary relief from allergy symptoms such as hayfever, catarrh and blocked sinuses. Vitamin C is also required for the formation of collagen and connective tissue, so may assist wound repair (especially after surgery), promote tissue healing and help reduce the tendency to bruise easily.

HORSERADISH CLEARS CONGESTED SINUSES The naturally occurring compounds that give horseradish its peppery bite when eaten with roast beef or smoked salmon are also responsible for its powerful decongestant effects in sinusitis, hayfever and colds. The sinus-clearing benefits are attributed to compounds called sinigrin and myrosinase, which combine to temporarily liquefy and clear mucus from the airways and open the nasal and bronchial passages.

ECHINACEA HELPS ‘GOBBLE UP’ GERMS Echinacea has been the subject of extensive scientific research, much of which supports its reputation for helping to support and stimulate the functioning of the immune system. It works via numerous mechanisms, including helping to stimulate phagocytosis – the process in which immune cells ‘gobble up’ invading infectious organisms by engulfing and destroying them. Thanks to these infection-fighting actions, echinacea provides valuable supportive therapy for colds and flu, and can be taken throughout winter to help maintain immune health.

ECHINACEA 2000 PLUS ANDROGRAPHIS Support your immune system with Echinacea 2000 Plus Andrographis, which may reduce the severity and duration of colds, flu, tonsillitis, pharyngitis and other upper respiratory tract infections and relieve symptoms such as a sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, mucous congestion, cough, fatigue and mild fever. Contains zinc, betacarotene and vitamins C and E to help maintain healthy immune responses. For best results, we recommend taking Echinacea 2000 Plus Andrographis at the first sign of cold or flu symptoms.

STRESSED? YOU MAY NEED MORE VITAMIN C Did you know that your requirements for vitamin C increase during times of stress? That’s because vitamin C is essential for the healthy functioning of the adrenal glands, which play a central role in your body’s stress-coping mechanisms. If you’ve ever felt run down when under pressure, you know that stress can have significant detrimental effects on your immune health too. However, research suggests that in people under extreme physical stress, taking vitamin C may halve the frequency of colds.

MEGA C 1500 Vitamin C enhances several of the mechanisms the immune system uses to fight infection, including phagocytosis (the process in which immune cells engulf and destroy infectious organisms) and the production of antibodies. Mega C 1500 contains high dose vitamin C to reduce the severity and duration of colds, flu and mild upper respiratory infections and provide temporary relief from allergy symptoms such as hayfever, catarrh and blocked sinuses.

BPH:

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED WHAT IS THE PROSTATE?

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF BPH?

The prostate is a walnut-sized gland in the male reproductive tract that sits at the base of the bladder and encircles the tube that carries urine from the body, which is called the urethra.

BPH can cause a wide variety of urinary symptoms, including:

It plays an important role in men’s sexual function by secreting the ejaculatory fluid that nourishes and protects the sperm.

WHAT HAPPENS IN BPH? In benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), the prostate becomes enlarged, putting pressure on the urethra and interfering with urination. This enlargement is a consequence of the hormonal changes that occur as men age. In particular, a potent form of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) may trigger increased cellular production in the prostate gland, causing it to increase in size.

64

• Increased frequency of urination, both during the day and at night (when it may disturb your sleep) • Reduced force of the urinary flow, causing the need to push or strain when going to the toilet • Intermittent flow, in which urination stops and starts • Hesitancy, in which the onset of urination is delayed • Dribbling or leaking after urination • Retention, in which some residual urine remains in the bladder after urination

MEN’S HEALTH

THE MOST IMPORTANT HERBS AND NUTRIENTS TO AID THE MANAGEMENT OF BPH INCLUDE SAW PALMETTO, PUMPKIN SEED OIL, EPILOBIUM, CRATAEVA, NETTLE ROOT, ZINC AND BETA-SITOSTEROL

WHO GETS BPH? More than half of all men experience BPH, usually from their 50s onwards. It becomes increasingly common with age, so while relatively few middleaged men are affected, as many as 90% of those aged 85 show evidence of BPH. Being overweight, leading a sedentary lifestyle and having poor blood sugar control all increase the likelihood that you’ll develop BPH. On the other hand, eating a diet that contains relatively little red meat and an abundance of fruit and vegetables may offer a degree of protection.

Zinc: Zinc is essential for the healthy production of testosterone and the normal functioning of the prostate, testicles and sperm. However, many Australian men don’t consume enough of this essential mineral, especially as they get older. Beta-sitosterol: Beta-sitosterol is a compound that’s found in many fruit and vegetables and medicinal plants. When taken in a concentrated form (as found in Prostate Care MAX on page 67), it may help to relieve urinary symptoms, improve the flow of the urinary stream, and decrease the amount of urine retained in the bladder after going to the toilet. Reference: Alcaraz A, et al. Int Urol Nephrol 2016;48:645-56 Australian Bureau of Statistics, Food Standards Australia New Zealand. Australian Health Survey: Usual nutrient intakes 2011-12. Commonwealth of Australia, 2015

Tomatoes and tomato-based sauces are particularly valuable for men’s prostate health and should feature in your diet on a regular basis. They contain an antioxidant called lycopene, which specifically targets the prostate gland. HOW CAN I MANAGE BPH SYMPTOMS? The most important herbs and nutrients to aid the management of BPH include: Saw palmetto: Saw palmetto has been investigated in numerous clinical trials, many of which have found it to help reduce the symptoms of medically diagnosed BPH when taken for at least 4-6 weeks. It’s believed to work by inhibiting the activity of testosterone and DHT, and recent research suggests that it may significantly improve the quality of life of men with medically diagnosed BPH*. Pumpkin Seed Oil: When combined with saw palmetto extract, pumpkin seed oil has been shown to have beneficial effects on the urinary symptoms associated with medically diagnosed BPH. It’s a natural source of essential fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory effects in the body. Epilobium, Crataeva and Nettle Root: Epilobium and nettle root have traditionally been used in Western Herbal Medicine to support prostate function and relieve men’s urinary problems. Crataeva is an Ayurvedic herb that has a long tradition of use in similar circumstances.

SAW PALMETTO 3.2G PROSTATE FORMULA Prostate problems? Saw Palmetto 3.2g Prostate Formula relieves impaired urinary flow, delayed onset of urination and the frequent need to urinate during the day and night – as well as other symptoms of medically diagnosed benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). In addition to saw palmetto, which has been clinically proven to reduce BPH symptoms, it contains epilobium and tienchi ginseng, which have traditionally been used to assist BPH symptoms and men’s urinary disorders. Also includes pumpkin seed oil and the antioxidant nutrients zinc, selenium and lycopene to support healthy male physiology.

TESTOFEN & HORNY GOAT WEED

WANT MORE SEX? As men get older, declining testosterone levels may lower libido and inhibit sexual performance. Testofen may be the answer! In a clinical study published in the medical journal Aging Male, healthy men aged between 43 and 70 took either Testofen (a standardised fenugreek seed extract) or a placebo supplement. After 12 weeks, the sexual functioning of the men who had taken Testofen had improved significantly, as evidenced by increases in both sexual activity and the number of morning erections experienced. Testosterone levels were also improved in those who had taken Testofen. Reference: Rao A, et al. Aging Male 2016 Jan 20:1-9. [Epub ahead of print]

COMBINE Saw Palmetto 3.2g Prostate Formula and Prostate Care MAX for the most comprehensive prostate support.

While both formulations can be used alone, when used in combination the benefits are further enhanced. The unique synergy brings the old traditional herbs together with the new, to help tick every box when it comes to supporting prostate health.

NETTLE ROOT RELIEVES BPH SYMPTOMS Nettle root has traditionally been used to help reduce the urinary difficulties caused by medically diagnosed benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). It may help to reduce urinary frequency and nocturia (needing to get out of bed at night to go to the toilet), and the feeling that you’ve not completely emptied your bladder after urinating (urinary retention). These effects are attributed to nettle root’s actions on a compound called sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), which can contribute to the development of BPH by binding to testosterone and other hormones and inhibiting their actions.

PROSTATE CARE MAX Prostate problems? Prostate Care MAX may relieve the symptoms of medically diagnosed benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), including night-time urination, urinary frequency, incontinence, painful urination, problems with urinary flow, and incomplete emptying of the bladder (urinary retention). Clinical studies have shown that beta-sitosterol and nettle root relieve a wide variety of BPH symptoms. In Prostate Care MAX, they are supported by the Ayurvedic herb crateva, which has traditionally been used in BPH to help improve bladder tone, increase the force of urination and act as an anti-inflammatory.

HEALTHY EYES

TIRED EYES? Do you spend much time staring at a computer screen, tablet, e-reader or phone? If so, consider taking Bilberry 5000, which may help to relieve eye strain and fatigue after computer usage. Working at a computer screen forces your eyes to focus on fine details for extended periods of time, often without moving around much. You may even find yourself concentrating so hard that you forget to blink. Due to these issues, many people find their eyes become tired, heavy or sore after they’ve spent time at a computer or on a tablet or smartphone. In 2015, researchers in Japan conducted a study aimed at confirming whether bilberry’s long held reputation for relieving these all-too-common symptoms was justified. The study participants were 20-40 year old office workers who used video display terminals and whose vision showed signs of fatigue as a result. After eight weeks of treatment, the participants who had taken the bilberry supplement reported that their eyes became less tired after working at the computer. They were also experiencing less pain, heaviness and discomfort in their eyes. In contrast, the participants who had taken the placebo supplement did not experience the same benefits. These effects are believed to occur because bilberry helps the eyes to adapt to variations in

light intensity and recover after exposure to glare. It may also assist with visual acuity (sharpness) and clarity, while also supporting the microcirculation and blood flow to enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the eyes.

BILBERRY 5000 Got tired eyes? If your eyes are suffering due to over-use or the glare from computer screens, bright lights or nighttime driving, try Bilberry 5000. Bilberry may assist visual fatigue and eye strain, and in European herbal medicine, has traditionally been regarded as a nutritious eye tonic. Australian NaturalCare Bilberry 5000 is standardised for its content of compounds called anthocyanosides, potent antioxidants that support the health of the capillaries in the eyes and also help maintain peripheral circulation.

AMBASSADOR PROFILE

JENNIFER WALLACE EYES THAT ARE READY TO QUILT, NOT QUIT Jennifer lives in the centre of the universe: that’s Braidwood, NSW, according to her. And there’s something else she’s passionate about: quilting. She’s made over 250 quilts in the past few years. “I’m prone to a disease called ‘quilter’s pox’: the only known cure - the only thing that will ease the agony is to buy some material!” Whilst she’s joking about quilter’s pox, she has been suffering from something far more real: a deterioration in her eyesight. “I used to have the quality of vision required of a fighter pilot,” she says. “Then, it got a bit fuzzy.” She sought out an optometrist in Goulburn, who advised her that her eyesight was, in fact, deteriorating. While changes in quality of vision are a natural part of aging, it didn’t stop Jennifer from getting on with life. That’s when Jennifer discovered Australian NaturalCare’s Healthy Eyes.

ANTIOXIDANTS FOR YOUR EYES The blood vessels, macula and other tissues of your eyes are highly susceptible to free radical damage caused by UV-rays, smoking and poor dietary habits. However, consuming an abundance of antioxidants from a wide variety of sources may help to protect your eyes, especially as you get older. Along with zinc, selenium and vitamin C, the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin are particularly important for eye health. In addition to helping offset free radical activity, lutein and zeaxanthin form a layer of yellow pigment on the macula, which absorbs blue light and helps protect the retina from the damage it can cause.

Jennifer started taking Healthy Eyes straight away in hopes of protecting her eyes from further damage. A couple of years later, Jennifer went back to the optometrist and was delighted with the results of her latest check-up. Jennifer enjoys receiving her Club 4 Plus regular deliveries which includes her supply of Healthy Eyes. “I’m one of Australian NaturalCare’s spoilt customers: I get my box of goodies sent to me every three months!” As for quilting? “Well, I love passing on the disease to other people!” Healthy vision, and ‘quilter’s pox’, should help her continue her passion for many years to come.

HEALTHY EYES To maintain healthy eyes and vision, it’s important to take good care of your macula – the region of your eyes responsible for central vision. Australian NaturalCare Healthy Eyes is packed with potent antioxidants that help protect the sensitive macular region from free radical activity and oxidative damage, including zinc, selenium, vitamin C and the carotenoids betacarotene, lutein and zeaxanthin. Population studies indicate that consuming rich sources of these antioxidants in the diet helps older people maintain healthy vision.

LIVER HEALTH & WEIGHT LOSS

DETOX SUPPORT FOR YOUR LIVER Even if you lead a clean, healthy lifestyle and stick to a nutritionally balanced diet, your liver needs to work hard to handle the toxins you’re exposed to every day. In addition to its many other important functions, your liver is responsible for the detoxification of toxic compounds. Thanks to our modern lifestyles, we encounter such toxins on a daily basis – even if we pride ourselves on living as cleanly as possible. For example, you inhale toxins every time you walk or drive in a polluted area, and you consume them whenever you eat fruit and vegetables that have been sprayed by agricultural pesticides. The liver is a very efficient organ, capable of detoxifying all of these compounds and more. Unfortunately, free radicals are generated along the way, and over time the accumulation of free radical damage may cause your liver health to decline. Milk thistle has been used as a liver tonic for almost 2000 years, and has a long held reputation for supporting and enhancing the body’s detoxification pathways. A vast body of scientific research supports milk thistle’s traditional uses, and has identified a group of active compounds called silymarin as being primarily responsible for its renowned liverprotecting effects. Silymarin has antioxidant properties, and has been shown to protect the liver against the free

70

radicals that are generated during the metabolism of alcohol, some medications, and other toxins. It also stimulates the activity of the body’s own antioxidant networks to provide further protection against free radical damage. Silymarin also binds to compounds in the liver cell membranes, strengthening and stabilising them, and helping to maintain their integrity. It consequently helps prevent toxins from entering the liver cells.

LIVER CARE MILK THISTLE 13000MG Love your liver with high potency Liver Care Milk Thistle 13000mg. Milk thistle is a liver and gall bladder tonic that supports detoxification and improves symptoms of sluggish digestion, including indigestion, difficulty digesting fatty foods, loss of appetite and mild upper digestive discomfort. In addition, its potent antioxidant properties help protect the liver from the damaging effects of toxins and free radicals and support its regeneration capacity, increasing the production of new liver cells to replace old and damaged ones.

DIGESTIVE HEALTH

GOOD HEALTH BEGINS IN THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM SLIPPERY ELM SOOTHES THE DIGESTIVE TRACT The slippery elm is a North American tree that takes its name from the thick, gelatinous texture of the inner bark after it comes into contact with water. This phenomenon occurs because slippery elm bark contains a compound called mucilage, which binds with water to form a gel. In the digestive tract, the gel forms a protective layer on the surface of the mucous membranes, where it neutralises acidity and helps relieve inflamed and irritated tissues. Slippery elm’s rich mucilage content also enables it to be used as a bulk-producing laxative to gently help maintain regularity.

PROBIOTIC SB FOR IBS

PROBIOTIC SB

Has your doctor diagnosed you with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)? In sufferers whose symptoms are predominantly characterised by diarrhoea or a mixture of diarrhoea and constipation, taking Saccharomyces boulardii (the strain of yeast found in Probiotic SB) may help to relieve the symptoms and regulate the bowel movements. S. boulardii may also be beneficial for some other types of diarrhoea. For example, it helps reduce the risk of traveller’s diarrhoea that many of us become susceptible to when travelling overseas.

STOMACH CARE PLUS Calm digestive discomfort with Stomach Care Plus. Australian NaturalCare Stomach Care Plus combines ginger, peppermint, fennel, chamomile and marshmallow, which have traditionally been used in Western herbal medicine to help maintain healthy digestion and relieve symptoms of indigestion (non-specific dyspepsia), flatulence, bloating, nausea and gastrointestinal irritation.

DO YOU HAVE A WEAK BLADDER? Poor bladder control is nothing to be embarrassed about – it’s an issue that affects a vast number of people. The bladder is a balloon-shaped sac that sits in your pelvis, where it acts as a reservoir for urine. Leading off it is a tube called the urethra, which the urine passes through when it’s being excreted. Under normal circumstances, as your bladder nears its full capacity, it sends a signal to your brain that it’s time for you to go to the loo. Until it’s convenient to do so though, the sphincters (circular muscles) around your urethra keep it firmly closed, preventing any urine from escaping. However, poor tone in the muscles of the pelvic floor, urethral sphincters, or the bladder itself may interfere these processes, making the voluntary control of urination more difficult. For example, many women find that their bladder control declines as they get older (especially following childbirth), experiencing light bladder leakage when the muscles involved in urinary control are put under pressure by coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercising. Bladder Confidence is scientifically formulated to support healthy bladder function and tone, and to relieve the symptoms of bladder weakness in both men and women. Its ingredients include magnesium and calcium (which work together to help maintain normal muscle contraction and relaxation), and a combination of soy isoflavones and pumpkin seed extract.

In a clinical study involving older men who usually woke up at least twice each night to go to the toilet, taking pumpkin seed extract and soy isoflavones (as found in Bladder Confidence) has been shown to decrease the frequency of night-time urination by approximately 40%.

BLADDER CONFIDENCE Worried about bladder control? Try Australian NaturalCare Bladder Confidence, which contains a clinically tested combination of soy isoflavones and pumpkin seed oil that has been scientifically formulated to support healthy bladder function and control and help relieve symptoms of bladder weakness such as urinary urgency, urinary frequency, and men’s nocturia (frequent night-time urination).

CYSTITIS-CARE CRANBERRY 10G

CRANBERRY FOR CYSTITIS Around a third of all women will experience a urinary tract infection like cystitis at some point in their lives. Of those, 95% are likely to be caused by the bacteria E. coli, which enters the body via the urethra, travels upwards to the bladder, and adheres to the mucous membranes of the bladder wall. There it’s responsible for the inflammation that triggers pain and burning, a key characteristics of cystitis. Cranberry contains compounds that inhibit E. coli’s adhesion to the bladder wall, and when taken regularly, may help to reduce the risk and frequency of cystitis.

Suffering from the burning pain of cystitis? Cystitis-Care Cranberry 10g may help relieve your symptoms and reduce the frequency with which you experience urinary tract infections. It works by discouraging harmful bacteria (including E. coli, responsible for most cases of cystitis) from adhering to the mucous membranes lining the bladder, and may be particularly beneficial for women who suffer from recurrent urinary tract infections.

DANDELION EASES FLUID RETENTION

CELERY & DANDELION HERBAL DIURETIC

They’re not often eaten in Australia, but in some cultures dandelion leaves are considered a nutritious salad vegetable, and are prized for their high potassium levels. In European herbal medicine, they’ve also traditionally been used as a diuretic, and are often taken to relieve fluid retention from various causes (including the accumulation of fluid around the joints that sometimes occurs in arthritis). When used in this way, the high potassium content of the leaves is considered extremely valuable, mainly because it helps offset the potassium losses that typically occur with the promotion of urination.

Ease fluid retention with Celery & Dandelion Herbal Diuretic. In Western herbal medicine, celery seeds and dandelion leaves have traditionally been prized for their diuretic properties and taken to promote the production and excretion of urine as well as for the temporary relief of the pain associated with arthritis, rheumatism and gout. Unlike many other diuretics, dandelion leaves are rich in potassium. This helps offset the potassium losses that may occur when urine production is increased. 90 tablets - Order Code 4615 1 bottle $34.95 2 bottles $59.90 SAVE $10.00 CLUB 4 $25.95 SAVE $9.00 Each tablet contains: Herbal extracts equiv. to dry: Apium graveolens (celery) seed 1.5g (1500mg) • Taraxacum officinale (dandelion) leaf 4g (4000mg).

HEALTHY HAIR, SKIN & NAILS

6 NUTRIENTS FOR HEALTHY HAIR, SKIN AND NAILS If you’re keen to keep your hair, skin and nails looking their best, there are half a dozen vitamins and minerals you need to know about.

1

Vitamin C: Vitamin C may be best known for its role in immune health, but is equally important for helping to maintain the strength and integrity of the collagen and elastin fibres in the skin and other connective tissues. It also has antioxidant properties, and along with zinc, it is involved in the healing and repair of damaged skin.

2

Zinc: Zinc is essential for the production and repair of collagen, and if you’re not getting enough of it, your skin may become slow to heal. Other signs of zinc deficiency can include changes to the condition or volume of the hair, and nails that become brittle and snap or split easily.

3

Silica: The herb horsetail is a naturally rich source of silica, which supports the strength of the nails and hair, while also helping to maintain the elasticity of the skin. Body stores of silica decline as we get older, which may contribute to increased brittleness of the hair and nails.

4

Vitamin E: Vitamin E is regarded as the most important of the fat-soluble antioxidants, and may help to reduce the effects of free radical damage on the cell membranes of the skin. As a fat-soluble nutrient, it may also help to maintain the skin’s moisture balance and help relieve symptoms of dry skin.

78

5

B-group vitamins: Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 are required for normal hair growth and also help to maintain scalp health.

6

Biotin: Biotin is another of the B-group vitamins, but deserves a special mention of its own because it’s closely involved in helping to keep the nails strong and the hair healthy.

HAIR SKIN & NAILS NUTRITION Want glowing skin, healthy hair and strong nails? Hair Skin & Nails Nutrition includes biotin to help maintain strong nails, zinc to help maintain skin elasticity, and antioxidants such as vitamin C to protect your skin from free radical damage – along with a broad range of other nutrients to support hair, skin and nail health. Also contains horsetail (a natural source of silica, which is important for hair health) and ginkgo to enhance circulation to the skin and scalp.

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce the joint pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis. The trouble is, curcumin alone is poorly absorbed by the body. Curcumin Anti-Inflammatory Pain Reliever contains Meriva® curcumin which is made using a patented technology to combine the curcumin with phospholipids. Phospholipids act like little ‘delivery trucks’ for the curcumin, which means it is absorbed twice as fast and 29 times more effectively than curcumin alone. In recent clinical trials*, people with osteoarthritis, who took the Meriva® curcumin extract found they could walk over twice as far on a treadmill test as those who took a standard extract. They also reported that it was significantly easier to go about their daily lives compared to those who received the standard treatment.

NATURAL FOOT PATCHES

CUSTOMERS

Natural foot patches have a powerful reputation in traditional folk medicine, with well-documented use in Asia that dates back over 500 years. Foot patches are based on the principles of Eastern medicine, which teaches that waste moves away from the heart and towards the extremities of the body - including the feet.

LOVE

Foot patches act as a poultice to warm and draw and can help reduce pain, swelling and discomfort. The foot patches can help promote improved sleep quality and even help to protect and soothe sore and aching feet. Simply apply the patches to the soles of your feet and let the natural ingredients work while you sleep.

Testimonials from existing customers

I would like to order some more Foot Patches... I always like to give something a go before judging it – sometimes it’s well worth the effort. I was surprised at how well they worked, right from the first application...They started to work right away – I slept better and woke earlier feeling more refreshed. You wouldn’t believe the horrible gunk I found on the patches when I removed them!... Well, down to business – I have enclosed payment for 2 packets of Foot Patches. Mrs S. A. from North Fremantle, WA I confirm our telephone conversation of today wherein I told you how good I have found these Foot Patches to be. I have used 3 boxes already and received 4 more yesterday. I use 1 or 2 every night and they are always very black when I take them off in the morning. But I’m 86 years of age, so there is a few years of junk in my feet to come out. Thank you. Mrs D. R. from Baulkham Hills, NSW A note about testimonials: all testimonials are based on individual results. Your experience may vary.

Beauty from within Hyaline Collagen Peptide is a collagen supplement in the form of a pure, odourless and tasteless powder (collagen hydrolysate). Collagen is a protein that is vital for the health and structural integrity of your skin and joint cartilage. The natural ageing process, excessive sunlight and poor nutrition can deplete collagen from the skin, resulting in wrinkles and a loss of elasticity. Age, exercise and stress on joints can deplete collagen from your cartilage. Collagen hydrolysate contains high amounts of the amino acids Proline and Glycine – the two main building blocks your body needs to make more collagen. Hyaline Collagen Peptide dissolves easily and completely - just add three teaspoons to a glass of water. It’s a simple, effective way to incorporate a collagen supplement into your daily beauty routine!

Grown at 4,000m above sea level in the Andean district of Junin by the Pumpush people who have been cultivating and consuming maca as a staple food for thousands of years.

The cooperative indigenous maca growers who grow Loving Earth maca leave the soil fallow for 5 years after each maca crop so that the soil regenerates completely with minerals.

MACA POWDER Maca is traditionally grown 4000 metres above sea level in the Junin Plateau of the Peruvian Andes. The Peruvians believe that the harsh growing conditions are what gives maca its unique nutritional qualities. Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, all the essential amino acids and nearly 60 phytochemicals. The taste has been described variously as vanilla/nutty or butterscotch. It tastes particularly good in ‘milky’ blends like yoghurt and muesli, cereal and milk or smoothies. Try baking with it and freezing the extra for a nutritional boost when you need it most!

Coconut oil is a saturated fat naturally high in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). Apart from breast milk, coconut oil is the only natural food source of this fatty acid. Coconut oil is very stable and ideal for cooking whenever high temperatures are needed. Solid at room temperature it can also be used as a tasty substitute for butter or margarine. Coconut oil can also be massaged into the skin for external applications. This much lighter flavoured premium organic virgin coconut oil has only the slightest hint and aroma of coconut, making it extremely versatile and suitable for all types of cuisine.

ACTIVE JARRAH HONEY 10+

Manuka honey is one of nature’s ‘health warriors’ with a thick consistency and a subtly sweet, rich flavour. All honeys are naturally antimicrobial but manuka honeys have far greater antimicrobial properties due to their higher level of naturally occurring methylglyoxal (MG). This Australian manuka honey is sourced from the flowering plant Leptospermum, native to both Australia and New Zealand, and is tested and verified by an accredited laboratory for its methylglyoxal content. Please note this product cannot be shipped to Western Australia.

This uniquely Australian honey from the Jarrah trees in Western Australia has exceptional antibacterial and antimicrobial properties like the more popularly known Manuka honey. It can be used to treat wounds, burns and skin infections.

NATURAL LIVING | FOOD CHIA SEED Why chia tops the charts nutritionally: Protein » Chia seeds are 20% protein—in a whole grain, veganfriendly form. They also contain all 8 amino acids, making them a complete protein. Which means they meet a serious dietary need for anyone who eschews meat and dairy. One tablespoon equals 3g of protein. Omega-3 » No other plant-based source holds a candle to chia seeds for omega-3 content. Omega-3 supports brain health and mood and reduces inflammation. Fibre » One tablespoon of chia seeds contains 6g of fibre – of which 20% is soluble fibre and 80% is insoluble fibre. Minerals » Chia seeds are a mineral powerhouse. They contain minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus.

CHERRY MORE CHERRY JUICE

Cherries are a rich source of antioxidants, including anthocyanins and quercetin. Recent studies have found these possess potent anti-inflammatory properties which may explain why cherry juice has been used by sufferers of gout for centuries. Cherry juice is also packed with C and B complex vitamins, along with calcium and potassium. Cherry More is 100% pure juice from Australian-grown cherries and does not contain concentrate. It keeps for up to three weeks when opened and refrigerated (and up to 12 months in the pantry if unopened).

MIRACLE WASH LAUNDRY BALLS KIT

Natural soap-free formula Antibacterial Hypo-allergenic

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE

Miracle Wash® laundry balls contain small pellets made of the minerals sodium silicate and sodium carbonate, cellulose and a mild, biodegradable surfactant, laureth-9. The minerals release molecules of ionised oxygen in the wash and raise the pH level of the water. This softens the water and fabric and opens the fabric weave, making it easier for the movement of the water to remove dirt.

ALLERGY FREE

No Sodium Lauryl Sulphate No Toxic Chemicals No Petrochemicals No Animal Testing No Harsh Detergents Save time: Just throw them in with your laundry Save water: No need for the rinse cycle Save money: Reuse and refill (up to 60 washes) Save the environment: No wastage or plastic disposal

ECONOMICAL

KIT INCLUDES: ü Two full Laundry Balls (6 month’s supply) ü Two top-up bags of pellets ü One 45g tube of Multi-Purpose Stain Remover ü A biodegradable, eco-friendly, large drawstring bag ü Full instructions on how to use your laundry balls

HEALTHY JOINTS ARE

HAPPY JOINTS!

As you age, the amount of glucosamine created by your body decreases. As a result, your joint cartilage becomes thinner, the lubricating synovial fluid in your joint spaces becomes thin and watery, and your joints may become damaged and arthritic. Taking a glucosamine supplement may help maintain cartilage health, enhance joint flexibility and mobility, and relieve arthritis symptoms such as pain and inflammation. Australian NaturalCare offers a range of glucosamine products including the convenience of one-a-day doses and specialised formulas to target pain and inflammation. With so many available, you might be asking yourself which one is the right one for you.

For help making a decision about which source of glucosamine is best for you, call our naturopaths for FREE ADVICE on 1300 365 020.
