The global population is aging at an alarming rate and causing an explosion in health care costs, insurance premiums, cosmetic surgery and more. In the U.S. alone, more than one million baby boomers are expected to live to 100 years of age or older. This increased life expectancy presents a whole new set of health concerns that the medical community has not had time to address, since there is a greater need to care for age-related health problems in this ever-growing elderly population.1

Aging and the Decline in Vital Nutrients

We all grow old at the same rate but people age at different rates. Aging is a process of gradual changes that occur to varying degrees in each of us. Interestingly, the aging process is composed of different components and interactions, some of which can be impacted. One such component is the declining level of essential biological compounds, which causes our bodily functions to slow and become dysfunctional. Our organs don?t work efficiently, our immune system becomes lazy, we lack energy, our metabolism drops and we gain weight easily.1
7-oxo DHEA (7-Keto™) is a naturally occurring compound that declines with age.2 Replacing this key metabolite helps promote a healthy immune system and maintains resting metabolic rate at levels that accelerate weight loss during standard weight reduction programs.

Aging and a Healthy Immune System

Numerous changes occur in the immune system with advancing age, probably contributing to decreased immune responsiveness. Although all segments of the immune system are affected, investigators have most consistently identified declines in cellular or T-cell mediated immune function in the elderly. The decline in T-cell immune function is generally associated with an increased susceptibility to foreign organisms. For example, individuals with age-related declines in cellular immunity have an impaired response to vaccinations, making them more susceptible to health imbalances even though they have had their shots.
In a clinical study presented at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology meeting in April 2004, the effect of 7-Keto on elderly immune function was evaluated. Healthy elderly adults were given 7-Keto orally twice daily over a period of one month. The study revealed that 7-Keto augmented several key T-cell mediated immune function parameters compared to placebo administration.4

Age-Related Weight Gain

Age-related weight gain and obesity are approaching epidemic proportions in our country.5 Weight gain is a disorder of energy balance involving energy intake and/or expenditure. Low energy expenditure, a drop in resting metabolic rate (RMR), is a challenge during most weight loss attempts due to age, calorie restriction, lack of physical activity or a combination of factors. RMR represents 60% of total daily energy expenditure.
Maintaining a higher RMR as we age and during weight reduction programs helps us achieve and maintain a normal weight. Furthermore, compounds with the thermogenic potential to achieve even minimal increases in daily energy expenditure of 2-3% may have clinical relevance in preventing the decline in RMR with calorie restricted diets or weight loss, and in decreasing the risk of regaining weight. 7-Keto, a non-stimulant thermogenic compound, has been shown to significantly increase energy expenditure in humans.6
A recently completed clinical study, also presented at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology 2004 meeting, revealed that administration of 7-Keto to overweight adults in conjunction with a calorie restricted diet effectively reversed the decline in RMR normally associated with dieting. Obese participants following a calorie-restricted diet demonstrated a 5.4% increase in daily RMR with 7-Keto.7
The magnitude of the increase in RMR by 7-Keto is clinically relevant, and represents a promising agent for enhancing thermogenesis and weight loss in obese individuals on calorie-restricted diets. Additionally, 7-Keto has been shown in two confirmatory published clinical studies to result in three times more weight loss compared to diet and exercise alone. It has a favorable side effect profile and is easy and convenient to take.8,9
Our life expectancies will likely be longer than those of our parents, and our quality of life during those years will depend on how well we take care of our bodies now. Undoubtedly, the science of aging will give rise to new and exciting technologies to help us age more gracefully and healthfully. Maintenance of healthy immune function is keenly needed for improved quality of life in the elderly. Dietary manipulation and supplementation has been identified as a method of immune system renewal, and supplements such as 7-Keto may play an important future role as immune system modulators.
Moreover, the addition of 7-Keto to any weight loss program will offer vital support of energy expenditure and help with the attainment of a manageable and healthy weight into our older years.

NutriBiotic: the Best Grapefruit Seed Leader

grapefruit

In 1980, NutriBiotic was founded based on the principle that everyone deserves good health. Inspired by the research and recommendations of two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., we began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. NutriBiotic felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and their initial successes with their family of products showed that you thought so too.   Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, NutriBiotic found another need — the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein for the chemical and food sensitive individual.

In 1987, NutriBiotic pioneered the process and use of grapefruit seed extract. You will find the fruits of our labors in a range of products including our skin cleansers, shower gels, bubble bath, dental gels, deodorants, body and foot powder, liquid concentrate, CapsulesPlus, and more.   NutriBiotic stands committed to providing the very best for you and your family and is  pleased to be able to offer you an ever-expanding range of quality nutritional supplements and personal care formulas developed with the intent of protecting and enhancing your health.

What's Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil

Grown on small organic family farms in Ecuador, our Red Palm is certified Organic, Non-GMO and Fair Trade. Nutiva partner with Natural Habitats™ to ensure that no deforestation or habitat destruction results from the growing or harvesting process.

Nutiva’s unrefined red palm oil has a mild carrot-like flavor, with a rich, buttery texture. Some red palm oils have a strong or harsh flavor, however, Nutiva’s proprietary cold-filtration process removes any strong flavor while retaining the nutrients. It’s ideal for soups, sauces and sautéing. It also turns regular popcorn into delicious (and healthy!) movie theater-style popcorn.

Nutiva is excited to be launching a full line of new red palm oil products to provide even more ways for you to integrate red palm into your diet.

Natural Habitats seeks to empower and support farmers. Committed to the sustainable production of organic and fairly traded products, they also contribute to social development in the community through education and nutrition programs. They allocate 1% of sales to social and environmental stewardship programs. Projects have included building a small health clinic and providing sports uniforms for the local youth.

The region in Ecuador where Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil is grown has numerous small family farms, averaging 10 hectares (about 25 acres), interspersed throughout the regional forests. These subsistence farms were planted many years ago and are now being worked by second and third generation farming families.

Palm oil grown in Southeast Asia is associated with destruction of rainforest and orangutan habitat. It is important to note that in addition to the work we do with Natural Habitats, orangutans do not live in Ecuador and Nutiva’s red palm does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction.

Nature's Way DIM-plus Improves Estrogen Metabolism

Nature’s Way DIM-plus™ contains diindolylmethane, a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale.

Nature’s Way Diindolylmethane (pronounced: dye-indo-leel-methane) has unique benefits that support the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism.

Diindolylmethane or DIM for short, as well as indole-3 carbinol (I3C) are plant nutrients found in broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and other related vegetables. Research has shown that DIM improves the way estrogen and other reproductive hormones are metabolized in the body. However, the research on I3C has been mixed, with some studies showing benefits and other studies having negative results.

As a dietary supplement, Nature’s Way DIM Plus provides the exact compounds that are found in vegetables. It’s fully active and ready to be absorbed, while IC3 must first be synthesized into DIM after it’s digested. When combined with vitamin E and phosphatidylcholine, DIM is highly absorbable. IC3, on the other hand, has an unpredictable absorption rate. The stability of IC3 is very low compared to DIM’s, too. Some research has shown IC3 may cause certain side effects, including stomach upset and dizziness; DIM has no known side effects. Therefore, DIM-plus™ features active DIM. There is no I3C in the product.

Worth Buying Fish Oil from Kirkland Signature

As a company that prides itself on exceptional quality at the best possible price, it made good business sense for Costco to develop its own brand to sell alongside big names such as Kleenex, Duracell and Persil. But when you already sell brand names at the lowest possible price, how do you convince members to take a leap of faith on a new private label? The short answer is great value.
In 1995, Costco created the Kirkland Signature label, named after the city of Kirkland, Washington, where the Home Office was located at the time. Today Kirkland Signature is one of the most powerful private labels brands in America. We can do more with Kirkland Signature products than other private labels says Tim Rose, Senior Vice President, Food & Sundries because we move huge volumes and our standards for excellence and value, we impact other name brands pricing as well as their quality.

Some of our most popular item Fish Oil…

Kirkland Signature fish supply comes from deep ocean waters. Our fish oil is not supplied from farm-raised fish. State-of-the-art molecular distillation process is used to remove mercury, PCBs and dioxins, which guarantees purity and potency with reduced fish odor, on all Kirkland Signature fish oil products. The fish oil is derived from a variety of fish species, to maximize omega-3 fatty acid concentration.

Along with stocking private label products in almost every merchandise category, virtually all of our Bakery, Fresh Meat and Service Deli items carry the Kirkland Signature name.

Kirkland Signature is a KRW 7.3 trillion brand, and growing!
Accounts for 24 percent of Food & Sundries sales in the U.S.A. And 20 percent globally
Toilet Tissue is the most popular Kirkland Signature product (approx.KRW 545 billion globally.)
Costco continues to grow the Kirkland Signature brand, and prides itself on maintaining its high standards for quality value and price.

We don’t just sell Kirkland Signature… We are Kirkland Signature.
