Pure Encapsulations Energy Xtra 120 CapsRegular price $55.25 Save $-55.25
Energy Xtra offers a blend of key adaptogenic herbs, including panax ginseng and rhodiola, to help increase energy and resistance to stress. Adaptogens have long been associated with increasing energy, enhancing stamina, and reducing fatigue. They encourage physical work capacity and mental performance.
Often referred to as tonics, they have far-reaching effects on overall physiological health. At the same time, they help the body to adapt to and cope with stress, primarily by supporting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Panax ginseng promotes endurance and stamina, while also acting as supportive therapy for the promotion of healthy glucose levels. Rhodiola provides antioxidants and is recognized for supporting cognitive function and reducing mental fatigue. Energy Xtra includes additional herbs that play important roles in Herbal Medicine, including ashwagandha and eleuthero.

Pure Encapsulations Folate 1000 90 CapsRegular price $39.50 Save $-39.50
An extensive body of evidence indicates that adequate folate intake may provide significant cellular and neural protection, as well as energy support. Folate is provided in this formula as Metafolin®, the naturally occurring universally metabolized form of folate. Metafolin® is chemically identical to the active folate metabolite found naturally in foods, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). Clinical evidence indicates that the bioavailability of Metafolin® is superior to that of folic acid.
Adequate folate status is critical for red blood cell formation and protein metabolism. At the molecular level, the main function of folate is to donate methyl groups in key biochemical reactions. In particular, this B vitamin is critical for the proper neural and cellular development of the fetal central nervous system. Research demonstrates that daily supplementation with at least 400 mcg of folate helps to reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken daily prior to becoming pregnant and during early pregnancy.

Pure Encapsulations GI Fortify Powder 400 gRegular price $49.00 Save $-49.00
Pure Encapsulations GI Fortify Powder, G.I. Fortify provides far-reaching support for constipation. Psyllium, or Plantago ovata, is a valued source of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber absorbs water to form a gel, increasing stool volume when taken with appropriate amounts of water to support larger and softer stools for healthy bowel movements. As the bulk moves through the intestine, it also helps to collect and eliminate other waste and toxins from the intestinal walls.
Soluble fiber is fermented slowly in the colon by intestinal microflora, which further helps increase fecal mass. The fermentation process produces short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which have protective effects for healthy colon cell function as they are extremely important energy sources for the colon and may regulate colonic transit. Furthermore, SCFAs keep the intestinal environment acidic, providing optimal conditions for a healthy intestinal microflora.
Flax is an additional source of soluble fiber, and also contains fatty acids and lignans. G.I. Fortify also contains the amino acid l-Glutamine, plus a combination of deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), aloe, slippery elm, and marshmallow root. Additionally, it includes an equal proportion of three fruit extracts, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia bellirica and Emblica Officinalis, which has a long traditional history of use in the Ayurvedic medicine Triphala, literally translated as “three fruits”.

The essential amino acid L-Lysine cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained from the diet. It is primarily noted for its importance in helping to reduce the recurrence of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection, which mainly affects skin and mucous membranes.
As HSV requires arginine to replicate, lysine plays an important role in maintaining healthy gum and lip tissue as an arginine antagonist. Lysine competes with arginine for transport into cells and reabsorption in the kidney, increasing arginine excretion. It also stimulates the activity of arginase, an enzyme responsible for arginine breakdown. Studies suggest that supplementation with lysine significantly reduces the frequency of HSV recurrences, including cold sores.
In addition, a randomized, placebo-controlled trial indicated that lysine reduced the occurrence, severity and healing time for recurrent infections.

Pure Encapsulations Magnesium Citrate 180 VCapsRegular price $48.00 Save $-48.00
Magnesium citrate is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium that supports the metabolism of macronutrients and energy production. While normal magnesium levels may lessen the perception of exertion during exercise, suboptimal levels can occur after the loss of fluids, including prolonged sweating, which can compromise performance.
Magnesium is an essential bone matrix mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial involving 2,038 older individuals indicated that higher intakes of magnesium were positively associated with bone mineralization for certain subjects. Magnesium also plays essential roles in maintaining healthy muscle contractile function. As magnesium regulates calcium channels, it may have an important role in controlling cramping.
Several clinical trials have found that magnesium supports muscle function during intense exercise and helps to lessen nighttime leg cramps.

Pure Encapsulations MethylAssist 90 VCapsRegular price $58.25 Save $-58.25
MethylAssist provides activated B vitamins, including Metafolin® L-5- methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), to support nutrient metabolism. Activated B vitamins are particularly important for providing methyl groups involved in the methylation cycle. Methylation involves the transfer of a methyl group (CH3) from one molecule to another. Vitamin B12 and folate are required by the enzyme that produces methionine.
Folate is provided in this formula as Metafolin®, the naturally occurring, universally metabolized form of folate. Metafolin® is chemically identical to the active folate metabolite, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). L-5-MTHF is the predominant, naturally occurring form of folate in food.
Through bypassing several enzymatic activation steps, it is directly usable by the body and provides all of the benefits of folic acid regardless of functional or genetic variations. In addition, these B vitamins also help to form red blood cells. MethylAssist also includes benfotiamine, a synthetic derivative of thiamine reported to have better bioavailability than thiamine itself.
Metafolin® is a registered trademark of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

Methylcobalamin is an activated, bioavailable form of vitamin B12 that acts as the principal circulating form of cobalamin in the body.
In recent studies, methylcobalamin has demonstrated an enhanced ability to help maintain good health. In general, vitamin B12 works with folate to promote red blood cell formation. Additionally, vitamin B12 is an important cofactor for nutrient metabolism. One vitamin B12-dependent enzyme is methylmalonyl-CoA mutase, which is involved in the formation of succinyl-CoA, a key Krebs cycle intermediate.

Pure Encapsulations NAC 600mg 90 VCapsRegular price $40.75 Save $-40.75
Pure Encapsulations NAC, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a derivative of the dietary amino acid l-cysteine. NAC scavenges free radicals and decreases oxidative stress produced by heavy metals to support antioxidant defense. It is also a precursor to the antioxidant glutathione, and supplemental NAC increases tissue levels of glutathione.
Several animal studies suggest that NAC administration may also help to moderate the effects of mercury and cadmium accumulation in the kidneys and liver. NAC may achieve these actions in part by promoting healthy glutathione levels or protecting tissues from peroxidation generated by heavy metals. NAC also has a high affinity for lung tissue, which it supports through antioxidant action.
- Provides 600mg of NAC per day
- Provides nutritional support as an antioxidant to protect against free radical damage for the maintenance of good health
