Orthomolecular AdreneVive

Orthomolecular AdreneVive

Dietary Needs:
None

This is another Orthomolecular product we could not practice without. During times of acute stress, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is over-stimulated and needs help re-balancing. The over-production of cortisol and other stress hormones is typical for individuals with HPA axis overload. AdreneVive is formulated to help respond to HPA axis overload by reducing cortisol levels and limiting the negative impact of acute adrenal stress. Combining three popular adaptogenic herbs (Siberian Ginseng, Rhodiola and Ashwagandha), this formula also includes an extract of Scuterlaria baicalensis to help support the immune system during times of stress. Phosphatidylserine is known for its ability to reduce cortisol production during HPA axis overload and is a precursor to important neuron metabolites. L-theanine, an amino acid found naturally in tea, is able to act as a calming agent, reducing the perception of stress, reducing cortisol levels and helping to maintain healthy immune status. Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement.

Orthomolecular Adapten All

Orthomolecular Adapten All

Dietary Needs:
None

Adapten All is an awesome, extremely effective product for those who are simply tired, overwhelmed, and needing some support through life's stressful times. We call it a multivitamin for the chronically stressed. It is a complex of five different, high-potency, adaptogenic herbs combined with copious amounts of the four types of B vitamins which the body needs for energy metabolism. It also has an appropriate amount of vitamins A, C, and E which are needed for proper adrenal function. We have fantastic results with this product and always have it stocked in our office. Of course, you would not want to take this product without checking with your doctor, especially if you are on any kind of prescription medications or if you have high blood pressure. Adapten All contains licorice which can raise blood pressure, because those with tired adrenals, tend to have low blood pressure. Orthomolecular's tagline is "because efficacy matters" which is so true for this company and their products. Orthomolecular is one of the most effective lines we have worked with to date. Adapten All is a TWJ-select product through and through! Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement.

New Chapter Turmeric Force

New Chapter Turmeric Force

Dietary Needs:
None

Turmeric is among the best dietary anti-inflammatories and antioxidants found in nature. It will stimulate the body's own production of antioxidants for hours after it is consumed, unlike Vitamin C and E that loses efficacy after it extinguishes free radicals. We consider this is a must have as a regular supplement for anyone with a liver issue or auto-immune related aches and pains as well as those with high cholesterol. Turmeric is a powerful neuro-protector as well, which means it will ward off brain inflammation and neurological damage linked to Alzheimers, MS, and Parkinson's Disease. For those clients who don't like to take many supplements, we have them make (and drink daily) our Vibrant Turmeric and Ginger Tea from the recipes section of our site. New Chapter believes nature got it right the first time, thus all their products are food-based, NOT synthesized in a lab. Because it's food and not chemical isolates, you get the full benefit of nature's wisdom. This means a whole-food complex of vitamins, minerals and herbs that contain all of the plant's active, natural biochemistries.

Bragg's Vinaigrette Dressing

Bragg's Vinaigrette Dressing

Dietary Needs:
Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

This is likely the healthiest dressing you will find on supermarket shelves. They use purified water, organic raw apple cider vinegar and organic olive oil. Many commercial salad dressings add sugar and use either soybean or canola oil to save money. Olive oil is a wonderful, healthy oil to use in salad dressings and we wish more brands would convert to it. The only ingredient in this product we are on the fence about is the liquid amino acids because they are non-fermented soy. However, they come from organic, non-GMO healthy soybeans, which is a bonus.
