5 HTP (5 Hydroxy Tryptophan from Griffonia)
5-Hydroxytryptophan is extracted from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. 5 HTP is a precursor to the "feel good" neurotransmitter and enhances serotonin and melatonin production, increasing levels for sleep enhancement, decreased sugar cravings, and better stress management. Thorne research prepared this product without fillers and flowing agents that can interfere with absorption. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is the intermediate metabolite produced when the body converts the essential amino acid L-tryptophan to serotonin. Serotonin levels in the body are associated with the regulation of sleep, mood, seasonal depression, aggression, appetite regulation, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. it has also been helpful for symptoms of fibromyalgia and the severity and duration of migraine headaches. Supplementing with 5-HTP to facilitate serotonin production is preferable to supplementing with L-tryptophan because, unlike L-tryptophan, 5-HTP cannot be shunted into niacin or protein production. Supplementation with 5-HTP bypasses the conversion of L-tryptophan into 5-HTP by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, the rate-limiting step in the synthesis of serotonin (and a step that can be inhibited by a number of factors, including stress, insulin resistance, increasing age, and deficiencies of vitamin C, folate, and iron). 5-HTP is well absorbed when taken orally, with about 70 percent ending up in the bloodstream. 5-HTP easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and effectively increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. 5-HTP has been shown to have a beneficial impact on mood, discomfort associated with fatigue, sleep, and carbohydrate craving. Numerous studies of individuals with negative mood status have shown significant positive response with 50-300 mg of 5-HTP daily. To further facilitate serotonin production, Thorne Research's 5-HTP formula contains pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, the active form of vitamin B6 -a necessary cofactor in the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use for any individual currently being treated with an SSRI, MAO inhibitor, or other antidepressant medication.

Active Green Tea
Formerly called EGCG MAX, the new name is Actice Green Tea - a high-potency standardized extract of green tea, soucred from the leaves of the Camelia sinensis plant, high in epigallocatechin gallate (EgCG), believed to be the key phytonutrient in green tea, responsible for its health benefits. EGCG MAX allows you to more fully enjoy the healthy properties of a sencha-rich lifestyle without consuming large volumes of tea. Green tea’s polyphenols have been well studied for their proven benefits for cardiovascular health. Green tea intake is shown to decrease levels of LDL cholesterol, the cholesterol responsible for cholesterol plaques and the storage of fat, and triglycerides. Green tea also increases levels of HDL cholesterol (healthy cholesterol). HDL cholesterol also protects against plaque formation, improves blood circulation and decreases inflammation in vessels. Thus green tea can be used to prevent stroke and heart attack. The polyphenols are also antioxidants, protecting cells from oxidative damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage. Research in experimental animals has found green tea or its extracts to be effective against chemically-induced cancers of the lung, breast, colon, liver, and skin, as well as a variety of gastrointestinal organs, cancers induced by chemical carcinogens; more excitingly, green tea extracts have been found to protect animals from existing, spontaneous prostate cancer. The polyphenols and caffeine found in green tea help to raise the body temperature and increase the body's thermogenic or fat-burning activity.

Calcium d Glucarate
Calcium D-Glucarate for enhanced liver detoxification, supporting phase II liver detox and glucuronidation pathways, preventing recycling of toxins (particularly xenoestrogens: chemical carcinogens, steroid hormones and lipid soluble toxins) back into the liver. Calcium D-glucarate is a substance produced naturally in small amounts by humans. Supplementation of calcium D-glucarate has been shown to prevent recycling of hormones and environmental toxins, promoting liver detoxification and excretion of these potentially detrimental substances. Glucuronidation is the normal process in the liver of attaching a glucuronic acid molecule to substances for detoxification and elimination from the body. During phase II liver detoxification, toxic chemicals, steroid hormones, and other fat-soluble toxins undergo glucuronidation and are then excreted through the bile or urine. Calcium D-glucarate helps assure this elimination process occurs uninterrupted. Other applications of calcium D-glucarate supplementation include the maintenance of already normal cholesterol levels and support for healthy hormone metabolism, having an effect on estrogen metabolism and breast health. For clinic customer renewals only. Used with Indole 3 carbinol and crucera SGS.
