Doctor’s Best: Natural Vision Enhancers

Buy Best Natural Vision Enhancers, Eye Health, 60 Softgels, Doctor's Best

 

 

A Blend of Nutrients to Support the Eyes*

Doctor’s Best has introduced Best Natural Vision Enhancers into its dietary supplement line. Scott Steinford, president of Doctor’s Best, made the announcement. This product is available in a bottle of 60 softgels, each providing Omega-3 fatty acids combined with L-Taurine and the carotenoids Lutein and Zeaxanthin.

Best Natural Vision Enhancers offers nutrients that are integral to eye structure and healthy ocular function.* The formula features Lutemax®, a superior carotenoid ingredient sourced from marigold flowers that combines lutein with enhanced levels of zeaxanthin isomers. The formula also incorporates the amino acid taurine, which is particularly abundant in the retina of the eye. Best Natural Vision Enhancers also includes omega-3 fatty acids, with standardized amounts of the important long-chain docosahexaenoic and eicosapentaenoic acids (DHA & EPA) from fish oil triglycerides.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are not synthesized by the body, yet they are the only carotenoids present in the lens and macular region of the retina, suggesting that dietary intake is vital to the maintenance of healthy eye structure and function.* Taurine supports the retinal vision processes.* DHA is a major component of the retina, and EPA may influence retinal function as a precursor to signaling molecules. Numerous human studies suggest the importance of these nutrients for vision and eye health.*

* These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Quest Nutrition Protein Bar

Quest Bars were designed for anyone who cares about good nutrition and a leaner body. That’s really all it takes to become part of the Quest Team. It doesn’t matter what your specific Quest is, just that you have one. So, whether you’re trying to lose a beer belly to pick up more chicks, trying to get SHREDDED and lean for a competition, or you’re looking to add some lean muscle mass so you can whoop Michael Phelps’ ass the next time you see him down at the Y. Quest Bars are going to give you exactly what you need to be successful at any goal you strive for.The funny thing is, there is no big mystery to good nutrition and dieting. Most people know roughly what they should be eating. It’s just that there isn’t much on the market that offers great nutrition, great taste and convenience in one energy bar. So, for those of you looking for a snack that’s actually healthier than your regular meals, Quest has exactly what you’re looking for.

And best of all, you can try Quest Protein Bars risk free. We’re so certain that you’re going to LOVE it, that if you don’t agree that it is the world’s GREATEST protein bar, we’ll give you your money back. Go on, try one. It’s the nutrition bar you’ve been looking for.

Great Taste of Quest Bar
We conducted dozens of large scale blind taste tests after finalizing our formula (and literally hundreds before that to arrive at the formula.) During those tests, participants were given over a dozen of the leading protein and energy bar brands and the Quest Protein Bar came out on top every single time.
So why do so many protein bars taste like fertilizer? Because making it taste great AND be good for you is HARD! We’re not going to lie – it took us years to perfect our recipe. But perfect it we did.

Losing Fat with Quest Bar
If you’re looking to get leaner, our bars let you do just that – with the added convenience of being able to quickly get a meal on the go. Plus, many customer’s have used the world’s easiest diet plan by simply replacing one or more meals with a Quest Bar. It’s the easiest and most delicious way you’ll ever lose body fat.

Quest Bars will also curb your hunger more effectively than most foods. Because they are packed with fiber, you’ll find that they are very filling. The natural fats and proteins will further keep your appetite satisfied for hours – making sure that you can easily stay away from eating higher calorie, less nutritious fare.

Adding Muscles with Quest Bar
If you’re trying to add muscle, about the only thing that everyone can agree on is that you’re going to need protein to do it. Getting in the right amount of protein isn’t easy – especially if you’re on the run or don’t have time to prepare your own meals. Getting in your protein without taking in a lot of extra calories is very difficult if you’re not preparing your own meals and Quest Bars help you get in the protein you need while keeping the calories down . And by almost eliminating carb calories – we help ensure that the pounds you do put on are muscle – not fat.

Adding muscle is hard work but eating Quest Bars will make the job just a bit easier because you’ll actually look forward to eating them.

Natural Alaskan Fish Oils

Feature Items

pure-alaskan-omega-3-fish-oil-vitasprings

Pure Alaska Omega Alaskan Omega-3 Fish Oil, 500 mg EPA & DHA, 180 Mini Softgels

pure-alaska-omega-3-100-natural-vitasprings

Pure Alaska Omega 100% Natural Omega-3, Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil 1000 mg, 180 Softgels

Pure Alaska Omega Natural Alaska Salmon Oil is made in on a one-of-a-kind and state of the art processing ship, the Alaskan Venturer, (A/V) using a proprietry and unique cold press oil extraction process.  The A/V operates in the icy cold waters of Alaska during the commercial salmon harvest season enabling them to source the freshest salmon for oil production. Pure Alaska Omega uses exclusively 100% wild Alaska salmon and their raw materials are completely traceable to the day and place of harvest.

Their gentle process allows Pure Alaska Omega to capture many components of a salmon’s oil.  As a result, a balanced ratio of the omega-3 long chain poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA’s) including EPA and DHA as well as all other essential and  “conditionally” essential fatty acids will be present in Pure Alaska Omega.

Pure Alaska Omega is not a miracle cure. It simply helps restore a balance of fat in your body which has been thrown off by our western diet which is so heavy in Omega-6 fatty acids and saturated fats. Almost everyday, researchers find and publish reports on conditions that can be improved by the additon of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) from fish oil.

Reviva Labs Skincare Products for Eyes, Lips, and Face

Reviva Labs has introduced many groundbreaking concepts since its inception in 1973…

The first to introduce exfoliation to America…with our European LIGHT SKIN PEEL (We were explaining the importance of exfoliation years before the cosmetics giants introduced their versions)
The first to introduce elastin to America…Both in skin-care salons and health food stores
No animal testing! Before it was even an issue (way back in 1973), we announced the testing of our products in skin-care salons rather than on animals
And here are several more “FIRSTS” that we are proud to have introduced via Health Food Stores and Skin-Care Salons

INTERCELL DAY CREAM & NIGHT GEL (with hyaluronic acid & glycogen)
non-drying approach to acne -unique dark-spot lightening formulas
· collagen fibre masks
· glycolic acid products
· serum for eyelids
· oxygen-via stabilized hydrogen peroxide
· stabilized ascorbic acid & ascorbigen (“C” extract from cabbage for powerful anti-free radical action)
For over 40 Years Reviva Labs has been producing all natural skin-care products that help leave your skin healthier and more youthful-looking.

Reviva Labs products are sold in professional skin care salons and health food stores worldwide, which attests to the effectiveness and safety of our products.

Reviva Labs is one of the most unique skin-care brands in the cosmetic industry. Reviva’s products are not conventional commercial items. Established in 1973 to serve the newly emerging skin-salon market, the Reviva line is comprised of skin treatments created for skin-care professionals’demand for individualized formulas that meet specific needs.

Thus in Reviva’s broad array, each product is formulated for a specific purpose.

During Reviva’s early years, it was known as “The U.N. of skin-care discoveries”. With European affiliations, Reviva’s founder had selected the specialties of 12 different laboratories in 6 different countries, imported them in bulk and repackaged in retail sizes under the Reviva label.

Years later, Reviva Labs’ own chemists – experienced with natural extracts – were able to reproduce the treatments, following Reviva’s exacting standards; adding the latest technological advances.

Reviva Labs, a small company compared to the cosmetic giants, via it’s european affiliations and dermatalogical research, has introduced more skin-care firsts through America’s skin salons and health food stores, than most of the cosmetic giants.

NeoCell: The True Science of Collagen

The therapeutic benefits of collagen have been widely recognized in Europe and Asia for decades. At NeoCell, we are proud to say that we introduced collagen to the Americas.

Neocell was started in 1998 by founder and fearless leader Al Quadri after an extraordinary personal experience. Following a heart attack, Al endured triple- bypass surgery and a recovery that was slow and difficult. His muscles atrophied, and his usual energy disappeared. To recover Al understood that his future health depended on re-engaging his body’s own potential for healing and rejuvenation. It was during his investigation of holistic therapies that he happened upon the unlikely remedy of collagen. Al learned of the integral role collagen plays in strengthening and rebuilding lost muscle mass and connective tissue. Within a few weeks, Al began to rapidly recover and regain his lost vitality.

Once fully recovered, a reinvigorated Al set out to understand the means by which collagen had stimulated his own regenerative systems, thus enabling his rapid recovery. For Al, this wasn’t just a miracle. It was his life’s calling- to make the same health and vitality Al experienced in his recovery accessible to everyone.

His goal was to create products that allowed people to live younger, longer lives with abundant energy and wellbeing. And so Neocell was born, as a family-owned, research oriented business committed to introducing the world to a premium quality collagen-based supplement line.

Since our founding we have been continually enhancing our manufacturing processes so we are able to offer our customers the most bioavailable and bioactive collagen peptides on the market. We are proud to say millions of people have benefitted from our efforts and are now living a more youthful life.

Today, NeoCell is the #1 collagen brand in the world and a leader in the field of nutritional science. While we have grown considerably over the years, one thing has never changed – our commitment to finding the most innovative and effective nutraceutical supplements.

Coffee Drinkers Have Lower Melanoma Risk

An article published on January 20, 2015 in the JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute reveals the finding of Erikka Loftfield, MPH, and her colleagues of an association between increased coffee consumption and a reduced risk of malignant melanoma.

The analysis included 447,357 participants in the National Institutes of Health-AARP prospective study initiated in 1995-1996. Dietary questionnaires completed upon enrollment were evaluated for the intake of regular and decaffeinated coffee. The subjects were followed for a median of 10.5 years, during which 2,904 cases of malignant melanoma were diagnosed.

A trend was observed between increasing coffee intake and a decreasing risk of malignant melanoma over follow-up. Among men and women who consumed four or more cups of coffee per day, there was an adjusted 20% lower risk of developing malignant melanoma in comparison with the risk experienced by those who were non-coffee drinkers. The protective effect of coffee drinking was observed only in association with coffee that was not decaffeinated and was restricted to those with malignant melanoma as opposed to melanoma in situ.

In their discussion of the findings, the authors suggest several mechanisms to explain the protective effect of coffee against malignant melanoma. “Coffee contains numerous bioactive compounds, including polyphenols, diterpenes, trigonelline, and caffeine,” they write. “The predominant chlorogenic acid in coffee, 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid, and to a greater extent its metabolite caffeic acid, have been shown to suppress UVB-induced skin carcinogenesis in mouse epidermal cells by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (COX-2) expression. COX-2, which is overexpressed in response to UVB exposure and in human melanoma cells compared with normal melanocytes, is thought to play a functional role in the development and progression of malignant melanoma.”

“Because of its high disease burden, lifestyle modifications with even modest protective effects may have a meaningful impact on melanoma morbidity,” they conclude.
