Liver as endocrine:
! The liver is essential to endocrine health as it
breaks down conjugated hormones promoting a
more accurate body concept of hormonal status
! Estrogen dominance is conceptually seen as a
reduction of estrogen synthesis due to a
misperceived of abundance when it is not being
broken down by the liver – this of course results in a
secondary reduction of progesterone production
due to the reduced effect of priming the
progesterone receptors by estrogen
! The health and efficiency of the liver directly
participates in hormonal balance in this way
15
Liver as endocrine:
! The liver also synthesizes protein bound iodine
which in turn promotes thyroid physiology, so many
thyroid imbalances are up-regulated by increasing
liver activity
! To attempt to define the liver’s function if futile as it
has been estimated at having over 30,000 individual
actions
! So rather than trying to describe and support so
many different functions it is wiser to view the liver
status as essential to overall endocrine balance
! For this reason to achieve balancing endocrine
activity in anyone the liver must be supported and
addressed

Liver – Where to begin:
! One of the most popular starting places doctors
choose to begin modulating health function is with
the SP Purification Program (21 days) – this is in
fact a liver detox and unburdening program
specifically promoting both Phase I and II
detoxification – the liver is cleansed, weight is
reduced, and a metabolic/endocrine ‘reboot’ is
accomplished
! There are many other ways to gradually and
incrementally up-regulate liver status that can be
considered as an ongoing way to promote health
and transformation
17
Liver sequentially enhanced:
! A F Betafood
! Choline
! Betacol
! Livaplex
! Livco
! Livton
! Albizia
! Parasite cleansing (Zymex II, Multizyme,
Wormwood)
18
Liver cleansing step by step:
! A F Betafood – 10/day - cholagogue promoting bile
synthesis and delivery
! Choline – 6/day – begin second month with A F
Betafood and further emulsify fats and therefore bile
action
! Betacol – 6/day – Follow A F Betafood program with
this promoting cleansing of highly alkaline guanidine
from liver
! Collinsonia Root – 6/day – Promotes increased
vascular dilation in hepatic and peripheral
circulation – very useful in reducing liver congestion

Liver cleansing step by step:
! Livaplex – 6/day – combination product including A
F Betafood, Hepatrophin, Betacol, Spanish Black
Radish, Chezyn, Antronex – used for general liver
support and cleansing and may be seen as a next
step to liver sequential up-regulation
! Livco – 4/day – Promotes Phase I & II detoxification
and helps with viral burdens in the liver
! Livton – 4/day – Promotes bile production and
delivery (cholagogue) supporting normal digestive
actions and preventing bile and bowel stasis
! Albizia – 4/day – Supports the Kupfer cells in the
liver which release histamine and thus reduce
histaminic burden and body sensitivity
Estrogen Dominance - Widespread
! Defined as deficient, normal, or excessive levels of
estrogen with too little progesterone to balance the
estrogen – common in both cycling and menopausal
women, and andropausal men
!Caused by cortisol(pregnenelone) steal, HRT & BC pill,
adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, high glycemic diet, trans-
fatty acids, xenoestrogens, obesity (estrogen is made in
the fat cells)
!Symptoms may include: anxiety, anger, agitation, mood
swings, depression, dysmenorrhea, water retention,
fibrocystic breasts & tenderness, migraines, food
cravings, fibromyalgic discomfort, acne, loss of
mentation, mid-body fat gain, cold extremities (estrogen
blocks thyroid), dysglycemia, loss of libido, infertility,
insomnia, osteoporosis, PCOS, uterine fibroids,
autoimmunity, breast or uterine cancer
Estrogen – Ultimate Phase I/II Detoxification
! For hormones to dance with other hormones it must have a flexible
response pattern = be able to increase/decrease rapidly
! Estrogen building up imbalances menstruation, pregnancy, lactation
(following menopause dance continues to prolong life, supporting structural,
cardiac, and neurological functions)
! Cytochrome P450 enzyme system is used to eliminate drugs, toxins,
unwanted substances, biological agents, and estrogens – body views
estrogen as a toxin because it allows such a small number of estrogen
molecules to be active, unlike testosterone, DHEA, progesterone
! Phase I (P450) – oxidation, reduction, hydrolysis, hydration, dehalogenation
= increased polarity, less lipid-soluble, reactive oxygen intermediates with
potential for secondary tissue damage “sticky reactive molecules”
(antioxidant needs)
! Phase II – sulfation, methylation, glucuronidation = polar water-soluble bile
and urine (sulfation, homocysteine support, and gut symbiotic bacteria +
soluble fiber are essential fuels)
! Phase III (Antiporter) – a recirculation process not yet accepted scientifically,
active efflux pump decreasing intracellular concentration of xenobitoics
allowing for a “second-pass” with the detox enzymes located at or near the
cell membrane (more concentrated presence in cancer cells, liver, kidney,
pancreas, intestines, brain, testes)

Bone health –
A circulatory perspective:
! The classic view of osteoarthritis(OA) and bone
health status is based on the concept of
demineralization and yet this does not address the
localized effect of OA and the resistive response in
the nutritional patient
! So this discussion will speculate about a different
etiology for OA and bone health – which does seem
to respond quickly to nutritional intervention
! This is first based on ideas elaborated by Kerry
Bone and subsequent application of these
perspectives clinically with many patients and
outcomes observed
33
Bone circulation:
! An Australian researcher was developing a large
computer model database – he queried it with
certain risk factors known to associate with the
typical vascular issues of incidence in the society
(e.g. – Type A personality, smoking) – he expected
the computer model to show a certain percentage of
vascular heart disease – it did – but it also revealed
an incidence of OA 400% greater than CAD – so he
sought cadaver confirmation of what the statistics
were suggesting
! The osseous microvasculature supplying blood to
the bone was plaqued and blocked in OA
suggesting a loss of nutrient supply to the bone for
ongoing osteoblastic buildup
Page 9
Dr. Stuart White July 26, 2012
12
Mentoring the Mentors
34
Bone circulation:
! This in turn resulted in a osteonecrosis and bone
compression and then the characteristic
hypertrophic lipping and spurring in response
! Because the vascular pathways supplying blood to
bone is through hard channels incapable of dilation
the bone clinically shows vascular obstruction 4
times more than the heart
! So with vascular renewal programs and oral
chelation efforts reduction in OA symptoms are able
to be observed within 3-4 weeks, with therapeutic
intervention requiring 3-6 months to achieve
maximal improvement
! Remember bone remodeling has a half life of 5
years, and thus changes can be expected for at
least that time
35
Bone circulation protocol:
! Oral chelation:
!Garlic Forte 2/day
!Cayenne 2/day
!Cyruta 6/day
! Promoting osteoblastic remodeling:
!Biost 6/day
!Cataplex D 6/day
!Gotu Kola Complex 2/day
!Bone Complex 2/day

Review - Therapeutic Rationale
• This is the reason why we do and don’t do
• Therefore it is the reason why the patient will do or not what
you recommend
• It is the source of hope and the starting place
• The functional practitioner serves from this rationale in all
endeavors, and it becomes the practice style – making
incursions into disease conditions based on a rationale and
an accountable procedure
• this expands the practice and builds practitioner
confidence
• Have a reason for what you recommend!

Sequential Intervention
! By giving hope through discussion of therapeutic rationale and then
accountably determine if the therapy had efficacy it is possible to initiate
activity that may assist a person to make the changes that result in healing
! Sequential intervention and accountable follow-up can show what has
worked and what may still need to be employed
! Sequentially detoxify the liver to promote endocrine balance
! Allow every condition to become a strategic consideration of possible
etiology and therapeutic rationale – people are in search of experts – reveal
yourself
! The comprehensive nature of nutritional therapy means there is always more
physiology to optimize and support leaving an individual constantly refining
as long as they wish to further improve their status
! If the practitioner is accountable s/he will be allowed to experiment with
reasonable ideas

Purification and Weight Management Programs
Founded in 1929 by Dr. Royal Lee,
Standard Process has been a leader in the field
of natural whole food supplements for more than 75
years. Dr. Royal Lee believed that, “The quality of a
whole food supplement is dependent on the quality of
the manufacturing process.” This remains the
foundation of the Standard Process doctrine today.
Owned and operated by relatives of Dr. Lee,
Standard Process manufactures its supplements from
start to finish at its facility located in the heartland of
America: Palmyra, Wisconsin. Beginning at the
company’s 1,000 acres of farmland and continuing
through the final stages of our unique processing,
Standard Process provides the highest
quality food supplements available.

Challenging? Of course. Rewarding? Absolutely.
What is Purification?
Purification is merely the internal cleansing and
detoxification of your body. Think of it as
“spring cleaning” for your insides.
It requires making new, healthier choices for yourself. You
will be discontinuing fast foods, processed convenience
foods, and sugar-laden snacks, which place an unnecessary
load on your body. Say goodbye to cheeseburgers, French
fries, salt, sugar, and dairy products. Say hello to whole,
unprocessed, preservative-free foods, lots of pure spring
water, tasty shakes, and whole food supplements.
In the process, you will learn about your body and its
needs. You’re also likely to shed some extra weight.
Rid yourself of accumulated sludge. And expel energy-
zapping wastes.
How is Purification Different
than any Other Diet?
Fad diets sell a lot of books, but they ignore the way our
bodies actually work. Gaining the weight back (plus a
little extra) is all too common.
Standard Process’ purification and weight management
programs are different. They are not diets. They are
programs that help you live a healthier life.
They use whole food supplements to help your body
purify and rebuild itself. Naturally. From the inside out.
You’ll also be supporting all of your organ systems that
play a role in purification.
Depending upon the program you choose, you may find
yourself eating foods that may be new to you. As a result,
you’ll be enjoying some new tastes, new textures, and a
whole new you.*

Your Body’s Junk Drawer
You probably have a junk drawer at home.
It holds a mishmash of nuts and bolts, some old
keys, a pair of pliers, a night-light bulb, and a
roll of duct tape.
Your body also collects junk. This “junk”
comes from the food you eat, the water you
drink, and the air you breathe. It includes
pesticides, heavy metals, chemicals, caffeine,
pollution, and preservatives.
Also, simply living creates wastes. As you read
this, your body is making ammonia and carbon
dioxide. These and other poisons are created
by the workings of each cell.
It’s the job of your liver, lymphatic system,
kidneys, lungs, intestines, blood, and skin to
filter these toxins from your body. When
overloaded, your body becomes inefficient.
Like a furnace with a clogged filter, it collects
toxins.
If these toxins aren’t eliminated, your well-
being is compromised. Have you experienced:
❑ Weight gain
❑ Feeling tired or fatigued
❑ Poor digestion
❑ Difficulty sleeping
❑ Food cravings
❑ Mental fog
❑ Moodiness
❑ Low libido
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above,
you would likely benefit from a Standard
Process purification and weight
management program.*

A-F Betafood
®
Contains Many Nutrients, Including Betaine, to Protect the Liver
and Enhance Its Function
The whole food beet ingredients in A-F Betafood contain two important
phytonutrients, betalains and betaine, to support and protect the liver. Betalains
are the pigments found in beets that are generally protective to the liver and
colon and also protect the body against oxidative stress. Betaine has been shown
in laboratory and animal studies to protect cells, proteins, and enzymes from
environmental stress and support important metabolic functions of the liver and
kidneys. A-F Betafood also contains many essential vitamins and minerals to
support overall healthy functioning of the liver and the body.


How A-F Betafood Keeps You Healthy
Promotes healthy liver function
The betaine in A-F Betafood is an effective lipotrophic agent, which promotes
the transportation and use of fats, helping to prevent the accumulation of fat in
the liver.


Maintains healthy metabolic function
The B-vitamin complex, found in nutritional yeast, is a family of vitamins that
work together to metabolize fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Vitamin B
6

supports the metabolism of carbohydrates by facilitating glycogen breakdown.
Iodine is required to produce the two hormones in the thyroid gland responsible
for regulating the body’s rate of metabolism, reproductive functions, and growth
and development. Magnesium is needed to metabolize carbohydrates and fats
for energy, and is a cofactor for ATP metabolism. ATP is needed to produce the
energy that is required for metabolic processes throughout the body.

Provides many essential nutrients to support overall health
Calcium and magnesium are essential to bone health and several enzymatic
reactions in the body. Calcium is necessary for blood coagulation,
vasoconstriction and vasodilation, nerve impulse transmission, muscle
contraction, hormone secretion, maintenance and function of cell membranes,
and membrane permeability. Magnesium supports DNA synthesis, the synthesis
of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione, and the transport of ionizable calcium
and potassium across cell membranes.


Promotes cellular health
Beets are rich in folate, a nutrient that supports the production and maintenance
of new cells. Potassium maintains cell-membrane integrity. Vitamin A supports
healthy cellular growth and helps the body maintain healthy mucous membranes.
Vitamin B6 supports the formation and function of red blood cells. The essential
fatty acids (EFAs), like those found in flaxseed oil, mixed tocopherols, and soybean
lecithin, support cell structure.

Choline
Helps Your Body Metabolize Fats and Support
Nervous System Function
Choline is an important “vitamin-like” substance that makes up a large portion
of all cell membranes and is necessary for the body to transport different fats in
the bloodstream. Choline is especially known for its ability to help keep the liver
free from fatty buildup. Choline is also a key component of two important
elements of the nervous system, acetylcholine and sphingomyelin, both
necessary for the normal functioning of the nervous system.

How Choline Keeps You Healthy
Supports healthy nervous system function
Choline and calcium are needed to transmit nerve impulses from the brain
throughout the central nervous system. Choline enhances brain function
and memory.

Keeps your heart and liver healthy
Fat is automatically transported out of the liver during the same process in
which choline becomes lecithin. The primary function of choline is to
metabolize fats throughout the body.

Maintains cellular health
Choline furnishes an essential structural component of many biological
membranes. Choline donates methyl groups that are necessary in order to
synthesize other important compounds needed for various physiological
processes.

Betacol
®
Promotes Healthy Liver, Cardiovascular, and Cellular Function
Betacol contains Tillandsia usneoides, a source of important phytochemicals that
contribute to cardiovascular and cellular health. Several bioactive compounds,
including vitamin C, carotene, and 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric acid (HMG), are
found in Tillandsia usneoides. Vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals in Betacol
work at the cellular level to maintain healthy blood glucose and cholesterol levels
in individuals with normal levels. Betaine in Betacol is important for healthy
liver function, especially the metabolism of fat.

How Betacol Keeps You Healthy
Promotes healthy liver function
Betaine is a lipotrophic agent that promotes transportation and metabolism of
fats, helping to prevent the accumulation of fat in the liver. Several studies
demonstrate betaine’s unique ability to support a healthy liver.

Supports cardiovascular health
Tillandsia usneoides supports arterial health by helping to maintain normal
serum cholesterol levels in individuals with normal levels. HMG, the bioactive
compound in Tillandsia usneoides, has been shown in several studies to help
support cardiovascular health factors. Several studies have confirmed that HMG
operates at the enzymatic level in the kidney and intestine. Studies also indicate
that HMG may help maintain healthy cardiovascular function. Betacol contains
vitamin B
6
, which is important for red-blood-cell formation and helps maintain
optimum homocysteine levels in the blood. Vitamin B
6
is well documented for
its ability to support the heart muscle and associated blood vessels.

Promotes healthy cellular function
Vitamin B
6
is required to synthesize the nucleic acids RNA and DNA—the
molecules that carry the genetic instructions for normal cellular growth and
reproduction. Betacol also contains niacin, which functions as a coenzyme that is
key to cellular respiration, carbohydrate and protein metabolism, and lipid
synthesis. Niacin is a hydrogen acceptor, combining with hydrogen atoms as they
are removed from the food we eat. Once this occurs, the coenzyme continues
transferring these atoms to other compounds in a series of complex oxidation
reactions. Several studies indicate that extracts from Tillandsia usneoides contain
compounds capable of reducing serum glucose. HMG may also help support
liver function.

Livaplex
®
A Multi Food-Based Formula for the Liver
The liver is the body’s largest organ and performs more than 500 different
functions including the synthesis and utilization of carbohydrates, fats, and
proteins, the metabolism and excretion of toxins from the body, and the storage
of glycogen and several other nutrients. Livaplex is a special formula comprised
of several Standard Process ingredients designed to support the liver. This
product encourages healthy bile production and flow, the breakdown of fats,
liver-detoxification support, and the improvement of blood flow through the
liver. In addition, zinc, copper, and iron enhance the ability of the liver to
function normally.

How Livaplex Keeps You Healthy
Provides several essential vitamins and minerals to support cellular health and
metabolism of macronutrients
Vitamin A supports healthy cellular growth and helps the body maintain healthy
mucous membranes. At the cellular level, zinc supports DNA synthesis, cell
signaling, and supports protein and cell structure and function. Zinc also plays a
role in releasing hormones and supporting nerve impulse transmission. Copper
is involved in producing cellular energy, supporting the body’s natural
antioxidant functions, and aiding in iron metabolism. Iron is required for
oxygen transport and storage, energy metabolism, and many nutrient
interactions. The B vitamins are important building blocks for many metabolic
processes throughout the body. Vitamin B6 supports the metabolism of
carbohydrates through its facilitation of glycogen breakdown and niacin aids
in carbohydrate, protein, and lipid synthesis. B6 is also important for the
formation and function of red blood cells. Iodine is a trace mineral required for
thyroid-hormone synthesis.

Supports the liver’s natural antioxidant functions
The liver is essential in eliminating toxins from the body. Cruciferous vegetables,
like Spanish black radish, contain phytochemicals that stimulate enzymatic
activity required to support liver detoxification.


Supports digestive function
Betaine hydrochloride provides a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid
(HCl), an acid found in the gastric juice of the stomach, to help breakdown food
during digestion.

Whole Food Philosophy
Our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, challenged
common scientific beliefs by choosing a
holistic approach of providing nutrients
through whole foods. His goal was to provide
nutrients as they are found in nature—in a
whole food state where he believed their
natural potency and efficacy would be
realized. Dr. Lee believed that when nutrients
remain intact and are not split from their
natural associated synergists—known and
unknown—bioactivity is markedly enhanced
over isolated nutrients. Following this
philosophy, even a small amount of a whole
food concentrate will offer enhanced
nutritional support, compared to an isolated
or fractionated vitamin. Therefore, one should
examine the source of nutrients rather than
looking at the quantities of individual
nutrients on product labels.
Studies on nutrients generally use large doses and these studies, some
of which are cited below, are the basis for much of the information we
provide you in this publication about whole food ingredients.

A Phytotherapist’s Passion
“Philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner once
said that, for every human illness, somewhere
in the world there exists a plant which is the
cure. I believe that there is a healing potential
locked inside plants which is integral with their
evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to
learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature.”

LivCo
®
LivCo
®
is a unique combination of Schisandra berries, concentrated Milk
Thistle seed and Rosemary leaf. Schisandra berries have been used as
a tonic in traditional Chinese medicine.
1
Clinical trials suggest that to
be effective Milk Thistle products should contain substantial levels of
the important plant constituents: flavanolignans (collectively known as
silymarin). The main flavanolignans are silybin, silychristin and silydianin.
In these trials, concentrated Milk Thistle seed extract was used to support
liver function.
2
*
How LivCo
®
Keeps You Healthy
Aids in the elimination of toxins and cleanses the liver
Milk Thistle has been used traditionally to aid in the elimination of toxins
and cleanse the liver.
3
*
One of the things that helps Milk Thistle achieve this is due to what’s
called enterohepatic circulation – the circulation that occurs between the
intestine and the liver:
3,4
after the flavanolignans in Milk Thistle are swallowed they are
absorbed in the intestine
then excreted from the liver in the bile
and then they are reabsorbed in the intestine*
This means that the cells of the liver are in contact with the
flavanolignans at a higher concentration than the level reached in the
bloodstream.
3,4
It is the contact at the cellular level of the liver that is
important (see next).*
Protects liver tissue
Milk Thistle and Schisandra help protect liver tissue.
1,5
Constituents of
Schisandra known as lignans are likely to be important for this activity.
Schisandra lignans may do this by enhancing the normal production of
the antioxidant glutathione in the liver.
1
* (See over page – Antioxidant
Protection.)
The flavanolignans of Milk Thistle help to ensure the integrity of the liver
cell:
from the damaging effects of excessive free radicals
5,6

by eliminating toxins
5
*
The flavanolignans of Milk Thistle also provide support by increasing the
normal rate of synthesis of structural and functional proteins in liver cells.
This helps the liver’s normal repair process.
5
This increase in the normal
synthesis of proteins is also one of the ways Schisandra helps protect liver
tissue.

Supports healthy liver function and digestive health
Rosemary leaf has been used traditionally to support healthy liver function and when the
digestion requires support.

*
Provides antioxidant protection
Antioxidants help protect cells from the damaging effects of excessive free radicals. Free radicals
are highly reactive substances created in the body that may affect cells.*
As well as protecting liver cells directly from the damaging effects of excessive free radicals, the
flavanolignans of Milk Thistle may also provide broader antioxidant protection. They may do this
by enhancing the normal production of some of the body’s antioxidants: superoxide dismutase
and the glutathione system.
1
This means that the flavanolignans may provide antioxidant
protection for other body tissues as well as the liver.*
What Makes LivCo

Livton
®
Complex: Sustainable Liver Toning
Livton
®
Complex is a unique combination of concentrated Milk Thistle
seed extract, Globe Artichoke leaf, Dandelion root, Bupleurum root and
Fringe Tree stem bark.*
The importance of the liver
A poorly functioning liver can have a wide-ranging effect on health
eg sluggish digestion, constipation and digestive issues such as food
intolerances. The liver is actively involved in the processing of what we
ingest (take into our body). It also has to deal with any pollutants that we
are exposed to. Alcohol, drug medications (eg painkillers, contraceptive
pill) and a diet high in fat may put the liver under stress.
1
*
Closely associated with the liver is the gallbladder. The liver makes bile
which is stored in the gallbladder. Bile plays an important role in fat
digestion and absorption. It also helps with excretion of several important
waste products from the blood.
2
*
What is a liver tonic?
A tonic is popularly thought of as something that makes you feel better,
stronger or healthier. Natural clinicians use liver tonics to improve the
tone, vigor and function of the liver.
3
Improving the tone assists with the
proper functioning of the liver tissues providing healthy responses when
challenged.*
‘Spring tonics’ have been used for centuries and were often based
upon liver herbs, to ensure that, after a winter of unhealthy food the
liver would be strengthened. They helped in cleansing and refreshing
the whole body. Because the modern diet is often less than ideal a
‘spring tonic’ is useful at any time of the year.
4
Spring or liver tonics are
recommended when the liver is under stress or not functioning well.
3
*
Why use herbal products from an environmentally-responsible
manufacturer?
Herbal products are made from living plants. It is very important
that as consumers and manufacturers we do all we can to ensure
the continuation of these important plant species. Many species
are threatened by destruction of their habitat and by unsustainable
harvesting. One plant under threat is Fringe Tree (Chionanthus virginica)
which is native to the United States. It is a large shrub or small tree that
can grow to about 20 feet (6 m) and has showy, creamy white flowers.
The bark of the root has been used therapeutically. But harvest of the root
bark often results in death of the tree.*
One strategy to solve destructive harvesting is use a different part of the
plant (eg leaves, twigs or stem) instead of the underground parts. But it
is necessary to evaluate the differences and similarities between various
parts of the same plant with respect to chemical composition. This is
called a phytochemical comparison.

How Livton
®
Complex Keeps You Healthy
Supports healthy liver and gallbladder function
Dandelion root, Globe Artichoke, Milk Thistle seed and Bupleurum are traditional liver tonics.
1,7

These herbs and Fringe Tree root bark have been used traditionally to support healthy liver and
gallbladder function.
1,3,8
A review of controlled clinical trials found that concentrated Milk Thistle
seed extract may support liver function by helping ensure the integrity of the liver cell.
9
*
Encourage healthy digestive function and assimilation
Many herbs that are used to support liver function also encourage healthy digestive function.
1

One of the main reasons is that all these herbs, except Bupleurum, assist the normal flow of bile
from the liver and/or the gallbladder.
1,3
An uncontrolled trial found that Globe Artichoke extract helped in those with mild digestive
problems. Significant improvement was found after 2 months compared to before treatment for:

Albizia Complex: Seasonal Stress Relief
Albizia Complex is a unique combination of Albizia bark, Chinese Skullcap
root and Feverfew leaf and stem to maintain normal upper respiratory
tract and skin function.*
Albizia lebbek grows naturally in many parts of the world especially
India, parts of the Himalayas and Burma. It is also cultivated and used
for its timber and as a fodder plant.
1
The bark has been used traditionally
in India for centuries.
2
Chinese Skullcap (botanical name Scutellaria
baicalensis) has been used traditionally for centuries in China for a wide
range of applications.
3
*
Feverfew was first used in ancient Greece and was much favored by the
Renaissance herbalists. It is said that Feverfew received the botanical
species name “parthenium” because the herb was used in saving the
life of a man who fell from the Parthenon (the main temple on the
Acropolis at Athens), when it was being built between 447 and 432 BC.
4,5

Contemporary interest in Feverfew arose from the British public who
used it in the late 1970s which was reported in newspapers.
6
Studies
conducted in the late 1990s revealed that top quality Feverfew extracts
should contain substantial levels of the important plant constituent
parthenolide.
7
*
How Albizia Complex Keeps You Healthy
Assists in maintaining healthy breathing passages
Albizia has been used traditionally to support healthy nasal and bronchial
passages to support free and clear breathing.
2,8
Chinese Skullcap and
Feverfew have been used traditionally to support healthy breathing.
9,10
*
Maintains normal upper respiratory tract and skin function
Chinese Skullcap is one of the most widely used Chinese herbs to support
health in the upper respiratory tract.
11,12
Albizia has been used traditionally
to promote healthy skin.
2,13
*
Promotes a normal response to occasional seasonal stresses
Anecdotal reports in the 1980s indicate that Feverfew provided support
for the upper respiratory tract during occasional seasonal stresses.
14
By
supporting healthy nasal and bronchial passages Albizia promotes a
normal response to occasional seasonal stresses.*
Support a normal immune response
The results of a controlled clinical trial suggest that Albizia supports the
body in producing a healthy profile of white blood cells when under
stress.

Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata)
A Phytotherapist’s Passion
“Philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner once
said that, for every human illness, somewhere
in the world there exists a plant which is the
cure. I believe that there is a healing potential
locked inside plants which is integral with their
evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to
learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature.”

Wormwood Complex
Wormwood Complex is a unique combination of Wormwood herb, Black
Walnut green hulls, Stemona root and Clove Bud essential oil.*
The importance of healthy intestinal flora
Not all bacteria are bad, in fact some bacteria are necessary for our
survival and live in our intestine.
1
The human gastrointestinal tract (mainly
the lower end known as the colon or large bowel) is the natural habitat
for a large and diverse population of microorganisms (called ‘flora’),
mainly bacteria. The intestine of an adult contains up to 500 different
species of bacteria. Scientists even think there may also be some species
that have not yet been identified. In normal healthy circumstances the
relationship is mutually beneficial for both partners: bacteria and host
(you!).
2
*
Major functions of the intestinal flora include:
2
*
activities that result in the release of absorbable nutrients and
substances that can be used for energy
protection of the host against invasion by alien flora
A healthy lower gastrointestinal tract contributes to a healthy intestinal
environment and helps maintain proper gastrointestinal flora.*
How Wormwood Complex Keeps You Healthy
Cleanses the lower gastrointestinal tract
In Western civilization, Wormwood has been known since ancient times
to cleanse the lower gastrointestinal tract (especially the large intestine).
References to this plant appear in the writings of the ancient Egyptians, in
early Syrian texts and in the Bible. Early European texts refer to it for this
purpose and as a tonic. (It is said to have been brought to central Europe
from the south by the early Christian monks.) Wormwood was published
in an official list of therapeutic plants in Canada in 1868, and in the United
States in 1830. Wormwood is now used traditionally around the world.
3-7
*
Stemona root and the green hull of Black Walnut fruit are used
traditionally to help cleanse the lower gastrointestinal tract.
8-10
*
Supports healthy bowel function
Clove Bud essential oil has been used traditionally to support healthy
bowel function. It may do this by helping produce regular peristaltic
action. (Peristalsis is the process by which the contents of the
gastrointestinal tract are pushed along (propelled). The muscular layers
of the gastrointestinal tract do this by producing alternating contractions.)
By making peristalsis more regular Clove Bud essential oil helps cleanse
the bowel.
11,12
The normal propulsive action also helps to maintain proper
intestinal flora.

Zymex

II
Contains Important Digestive Enzymes to Support Healthy
Gastrointestinal Function
The word “enzyme” comes from Greek words that mean in yeast. Enzymes were
given this name when they were discovered while scientists were studying the
process of fermentation.
Enzymes help sustain life. Almost every chemical reaction that takes place in all
living cells of plants, animals, humans, and even of some bacteria begins by the
stimulation of some specific enzyme. Enzymes are catalysts, meaning they speed
up chemical reactions without changing themselves. They are the catalysts that
set off multitudes of specific activities and processes throughout the human
body. While hundreds of different enzymes have been discovered to date, each
enzyme performs a singular function. Although the enzymes are each
responsible for initiating a process that only that particular enzyme can
accomplish, they are related to one another enough to allow classification into
one of six categories. The proteolytic enzymes, for example, work to break down
proteins in the digestive tract.
How Zymex II Keeps You Healthy
Promotes healthy digestive function
As food is taken into the mouth and begins its journey down the alimentary
tract, it is met by a series of different enzymes. Each is responsible to initiate a
different chemical reaction in the digestive process and each is dependent upon a
certain acid or alkaline environment in order to perform its respective function.
The human body requires adequate amounts of these digestive enzymes in order
to break down ingested nutrients into substances suitable for absorption. The
proteolytic enzymes work in the digestive system and at the cellular level to help
digest proteins. Zymex II contains the proteolytic enzymes papain and
bromelain, which are historically isolated from papaya and pineapple,
respectively. In addition to proteolytic enzymes, Zymex II also contains amylase,
another hydrolytic enzyme that triggers the process of breaking down starch into
smaller carbohydrate molecules. Zymex II also contains lipase, an enzyme
produced by organs of the digestive system to stimulate the breakdown of lipids.

Provides alkaline-based digestive support for the acid-sensitive individual
All enzymes, whether of the proteolytic variety or not, are extremely sensitive to
acid and alkaline surroundings. Zymex II contains bromelain and papain. Both
enjoy an optimum pH value of between 6 and 7.5 and remain stable in
temperatures of up to 60° and 80° C. These characteristics offer the acid-sensitive
individual digestive support without adding acid to the body.

Whole Food Philosophy
Our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, challenged
common scientific beliefs by choosing a
holistic approach of providing nutrients
through whole foods. His goal was to provide
nutrients as they are found in nature—in a
whole food state where he believed their
natural potency and efficacy would be
realized. Dr. Lee believed that when nutrients
remain intact and are not split from their
natural associated synergists—known and
unknown—bioactivity is markedly enhanced
over isolated nutrients. Following this
philosophy, even a small amount of a whole
food concentrate will offer enhanced
nutritional support, compared to an isolated
or fractionated vitamin. Therefore, one should
examine the source of nutrients rather than
looking at the quantities of individual
nutrients on product labels.
Studies on nutrients generally use large doses and these studies, some
of which are cited below, are the basis for much of the information we
provide you in this publication about whole food ingredients. See the

Multizyme
®
Contains Digestive Enzymes to Support the Proper Breakdown
and Absorption of Proteins, Carbohydrates, Sugars, and Fats
Enzymes are protein molecules that catalyze, or jump-start, nearly all
biochemical activity in the body. Enzymes are needed to digest food, produce
energy inside cells, activate the brain, help the body maintain cells, tissues, and
organs, plus support other functions of the body. Without enzymes, many
chemical reactions in the body would not be supported. Enzymes have unique
chemical structures and perform specific tasks, so one enzyme cannot substitute
for another. Enzymes fall into two main categories: digestive or metabolic. The
digestive enzymes work in the intestinal tract to break down the foods we eat, so
nutrients can be absorbed into the blood for use in the body. Digestive enzymes
are divided into amylases, proteases, and lipases. Amylases are found in saliva
and pancreatic juice. The sole responsibility of amylases is to break down
carbohydrates and sugars for absorption. Proteases are found in pancreatic,
stomach, and intestinal juices and are responsible for digesting proteins. Lipases
break down fats and are found in the stomach and pancreatic juices, as well as in
foods that contain fat. The body procures some enzymes from food. Raw foods
from both plant and animal sources provide the greatest percentage of enzymes,
since heat and cooking can destroy these sensitive molecules. Digestive enzymes
enable our bodies to obtain optimal nutritional benefit from the foods we eat.
Multizyme is an enzyme supplement that can aid in digestion.

How Multizyme Keeps You Healthy
Supports the proper and efficient breakdown of foods and absorption of nutrients
While the solid foods and liquids we eat every day contain the vital nutrients our
bodies need to operate normally, they are of no use unless they can be absorbed
into the bloodstream. Digestive enzymes ensure that proteins, carbohydrates,
sugars, and fats are chemically transformed into molecules that can be absorbed
and used by the tissues of the body.
Figs and almonds contribute fatty acids, fiber, and vitamins and minerals that
encourage healthy digestion. The proteolytic enzyme pancreatin is a concentrate
of important pancreatic enzymes needed to break down dietary proteins, fats,
and starch into amino acids, glycerol and fatty acids, and simple sugars,
respectfully. Bromelain and papain are proteolytic enzymes from plants that help
the body digest proteins. Lipases trigger lipid breakdown while cellulases work
together to hydrolyze cellulose. Amylase sparks the hydrolysis of starch into
smaller mono- and polysaccharide carbohydrate molecules. Together, enzymes
in Multizyme work synergistically to encourage the efficient breakdown of food
in the digestive tract and enhance the absorption of vital nutrients.

Collinsonia Root
Combines Strong Antioxidant Properties With a
Natural Affinity to Support Vascular Tissue
Different parts of the collinsonia plant can be taken internally or applied
topically, depending on the indication for use. The Chinese have used different
parts of Collinsonia canadensis for centuries to help support the liver, lungs,
colon, and fibrous tissue surrounding the heart. The beneficial chemical
elements found in collinsonia root include saponins, resin, tannin, organic acid,
and mucilage.

How Collinsonia Root Keeps You Healthy
Supports healthy blood vessel tone and fluid levels
Collinsonia encourages vascular tissue contraction and moves blood or body
fluids through the vessels to maintain healthy fluid levels.

Promotes digestive efficiency
Collinsonia has historically been used to help support gastrointestinal health.

Helps maintain heart and lung health
Similar to its ability to help move blood and body fluids, collinsonia also helps
maintain heart and lung health. Collinsonia works to keep mucus membranes
healthy, which in turn helps the lungs work more efficiently.

Helps maintain a healthy urinary system
Collinsonia naturally helps the body eliminate excess fluid and byproducts from
tissues throughout the body. These cleansing characteristics give collinsonia the
ability to help maintain a healthy environment in the urinary system.

Whole Food Philosophy
Our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, challenged
common scientific beliefs by choosing a
holistic approach of providing nutrients
through whole foods. His goal was to provide
nutrients as they are found in nature—in a
whole food state where he believed their
natural potency and efficacy would be
realized. Dr. Lee believed that when nutrients
remain intact and are not split from their
natural associated synergists—known and
unknown—bioactivity is markedly enhanced
over isolated nutrients. Following this
philosophy, even a small amount of a whole
food concentrate will offer enhanced
nutritional support, compared to an isolated
or fractionated vitamin. Therefore, one should
examine the source of nutrients rather than
looking at the quantities of individual
nutrients on product labels.
Studies on nutrients generally use large doses and these studies, some
of which are cited below, are the basis for much of the information we
provide you in this publication about whole food ingredients. See the

Cruciferous Complete

Contains Organically Grown, Minimally Processed
Kale and Brussels Sprouts
Research demonstrates that cruciferous vegetables, such as kale and Brussels
sprouts, contain important phytonutrients that help protect against free radicals,
the highly unstable molecules that can damage cells and genetic material.
Cruciferous vegetables are nutrient-dense foods packed with many essential
vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Cruciferous vegetables also contain
important health-promoting nutrients like carotenoids and other phytochemicals
that stimulate enzymatic activity to support liver detoxification.


How Cruciferous Complete Keeps You Healthy
Furnishes many nutrients to support health
Cruciferous Complete contains kale and Brussels sprouts, which contain a broad
spectrum of micronutrients, including vitamins B
6
, C, and K; dietary fiber;
copper; calcium; and potassium. A class of plant pigments, called carotenoids, is
also found in crucifers. These pigments, including beta carotene and lutein, serve
important roles within the body. Beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A, while
lutein is found in abundance in the retina of the eye. Carotenoids and other
phytochemicals also have antioxidant properties and can protect cells from
damage of excess reactive oxygen species.

Provides antioxidant support
The health-promoting phytochemicals in cruciferous vegetables protect cells
against free-radical damage and have been shown in the laboratory to alter the
metabolic pathways responsible for the metabolism of hormones in cultured
cells and in mice.


Induces liver detoxification enzymes
Cruciferous vegetables contain highly active phytochemicals called
glucosinolates. In laboratory cell cultures and mice, products left from the
breakdown of glucosinolates stimulate the phase I and phase II liver enzymes,
two biochemical pathways in the liver involved in converting toxins into
harmless substances that can easily be excreted from the body.

Garlic Forte: Active Release

There is much written about the history of garlic use. Garlic
was fed to laborers in ancient Egypt, perhaps to help them maintain their
strength. During some of the earliest Olympic Games (in ancient Greece)
athletes were fed garlic before they competed. During the Middle Ages
garlic became available in Europe after the Roman legions moved north.
Garlic was grown in monasteries during Medieval times. Garlic grew
freely in the woods of North America and native Americans used garlic in
their tea.
3
*
Garlic constituents: the all important organic sulfur compounds
Garlic is a complex herb, and contains hundreds of constituents. Many
of these constituents give garlic its characteristic smell; they are sulfur-
containing organic compounds. By 1998 it became apparent from clinical
·luc|e· l|al ¦o| oµl|ma| e¦¦cac,, ça|||c µ|ocucl· ·|ou|c co|la|| ·u|·la|l|a|
levels of the important sulfur compound alliin.
4
There are many types
of garlic products available on the market: fresh (raw) garlic, dried
garlic (garlic powder), garlic oils and aged garlic extract. The range of
constituents in these products varies, as does the amount of important
constituents. Only raw garlic and very carefully dried garlic powder
contain alliin, aged garlic extract does not.
5
*
When a garlic clove is crushed, or when dried garlic powder gets wet
the odorless alliin is broken down by the enzyme alliinase. Alliin is then
converted into allicin and other strong smelling sulfur compounds.
4
*
Garlic products: is the allicin available for absorption in the body?
Because stomach acid can degrade alliinase, quality garlic powder
products should be enterically coated. This type of coating protects
the tablet (and the enzyme, alliinase) from being broken down in the
stomach. (If alliinase became degraded, allicin would not be produced
from alliin.) When enterically coated, the tablet survives intact and enters
the intestine. Providing the tablet has a properly formulated coating, it is
able to break down in the non-acidic environment of the small intestine
and the enzymatic reaction can occur. Allicin is produced and can then
be absorbed in the large intestine. If the enteric coating cannot break
down in the intestine, allicin will not be produced, and then cannot
be absorbed.
2
It is possible in the laboratory to measure the amount
of allicin released from garlic tablets. This is called “under simulated
gastrointestinal conditions.”

product contains the stated amount of important constituents. Labels of garlic products that report
allicin content are probably reporting potential allicin not actual allicin. So the amount of allicin
delivered to the body is not guaranteed.
2
The amount of alliin converted to allicin can be as little
as 10%. Conversion depends on the amount and activity of the alliinase.
7
*
The activity of alliinase may be substantially decreased, for example, by:
8
*
processing garlic bulb into a powder (eg with the use of heat)
the presence of other compounds in the tablet
incorrect disintegration of the tablet (because of its coating)
But there are more quality issues that consumers need to be concerned with, such as:*
How much alliin is in the raw material?
Is the enzyme (alliinase) present and able to do the conversion (alliin allicin)?
Will the alliinase survive the acidic environment of the stomach (is the tablet enteric-coated?)
If enteric-coated, will the tablet disintegrate correctly in the intestine liberating the (protected)
alliinase, allowing the conversion to occur and providing the allicin for absorption?

The brand of garlic tablet used in most of the clinical trials from 1994 to 2000 was tested
by researchers from Utah in 2001. They found that the allicin release under simulated
gastrointestinal conditions varied from 14% to 18% of the allicin potential. (Allicin potential
is the amount that should be released based on the alliin content.)
5,6
These results strongly
suggest that to be effective, garlic tablets need to be standardized for alliin content and
release allicin under simulated gastrointestinal conditions.*
Garlic also supports the cardiovascular system in other ways.*
Double-blind, placebo-controlled trials have shown that allicin-releasing garlic powder
helps the blood to have healthy platelet function.

Another well-designed trial and further research has found that garlic helps keep the walls

Promotes health in the gastrointestinal system
Population studies that involved people in Italy and Switzerland (1991–2004) found that garlic
in the diet was associated with a healthy gastrointestinal tract (mouth, pharynx, esophagus,
larynx and large bowel). The analysis compared the health of people eating high amounts of
garlic with those eating none or a low amount.

In the 1980s Russian newspapers advised the chewing of raw garlic to enhance normal

In World War II, the Soviet army also used
garlic to enhance normal immune response.

Volunteers taking a garlic tablet were more

Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne Pepper Works as an Effective Catalyst
for Herbal and Nutritional Supplementation
Cayenne pepper, a member of the Capsicum species, can be used to enhance
flavor and turn up the heat in some of our favorite dishes, or it can be ingested
for a number of health-supporting purposes. The use of cayenne pepper dates
back some 9,000 years. The Aztec Indians referred to this type of pepper as
“chilli,” and many Native Americans have used cayenne pepper both in cooking
and for health. Native to tropical climates, the first archeological evidence of this
pepper’s cultivation was discovered in Mexico, dating back nearly 7,000 years.
Cayenne pepper was later introduced in Europe and finally transported to most
tropical, subtropical, and temperate zones around the globe. The health-related
history of cayenne pepper began with traditional Indian Ayurvedic practitioners
and continued with the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean traditional practices. The
vitamins, minerals, and compounds found in cayenne pepper work to cleanse
the system and promote overall health and well-being.

How Cayenne Pepper Keeps You Healthy
Maintains a healthy digestive system
Cayenne pepper supports digestive system function by helping to cleanse the
digestive tract and reduce gas buildup. Cayenne stimulates gastric juice output.
Gastric juice works to help break down foods in the stomach and acts as a
natural digestive agent.

Maintains healthy circulation
Cayenne pepper helps support healthy circulation and helps increase peripheral
circulation in particular. Cayenne pepper contains vitamin E, a heart-healthy
antioxidant, in a stable form. Vitamins C and K are nutrients associated with
healthy hemostatic activity. Cayenne pepper contains these nutrients plus other
synergistic cofactors that help support healthy blood flow.

Enhances metabolic efficiency
Capsaicin, an important compound in cayenne pepper, helps boost energy
expenditure in the body, thereby increasing the basal metabolism rate.

Strengthens the immune system
Cayenne pepper is one of the better botanical sources of vitamin C and is often
used to induce intense sweating. Cayenne pepper also contains folic and
pantothenic acids, plus the vitamins A and B complex.

Enhances the efficacy of other herbal and nutritional supplements
Cayenne pepper is a catalyst for other herbs, primarily due to its oleoresin
content, transporting them quickly to where they are needed most.

Cyruta
®
Made From Buckwheat, Containing Powerful Antioxidants
Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) is typically thought of as a food. Even
though the seeds are used as cereal, the plant is not one of the cereal grasses but
rather a herbaceous plant. Rich in protein (especially lysine, which is uncommon
in most cereal grains), buckwheat also contains vitamins B and E, calcium, and
phosphorus. Buckwheat is easily digestible. It has more iron, copper, and
magnesium than wheat.

How Cyruta Keeps You Healthy
Buckwheat contains rutin, a powerful antioxidant
Buckwheat contains rutin, a phytochemical of the flavonoid group and a
powerful antioxidant. Rutin protects the body against a variety of damaging
oxidative toxins, especially those released by the body from mineral-fiber
irritation. By itself, rutin is a more potent free-radical eliminator than either
vitamin C or vitamin E. Synergistically, the three work together to create an
antioxidant powerhouse.

Antioxidants rutin and quercetin help support the skin
Because it is exposed, the skin is particularly vulnerable to environmental
damage, especially from the sun’s rays. Rutin and quercetin protect the skin and
nerves from oxidative damage.

Soluble fiber and rutin found in buckwheat help maintain the cardiovascular system
The soluble fiber in buckwheat can help maintain a proper balance between
high- and low-density lipoproteins. Furthermore, rutin prevents the oxidation of
low-density lipoprotein in artery walls. As an antioxidant, rutin also minimizes
oxidative damage in red blood cells, especially to delicate cell walls and to
important fats embedded in those walls, and to essential oxygen-carrying
hemoglobin. Rutin also helps keep blood thin, thus encouraging its free flow
through the circulatory system, primarily in peripheral arterial systems.

Quercetin helps maintain orderly cell growth in breast and other tissues
Quercetin attaches to type-II estrogen-binding sites and helps prevent protein
kinase C activation, a cause of undesirable cell division and growth.

Biost
®
A Special Combination Formula That Supports Cellular and
Skeletal Health
Bone serves a myriad of functions beyond providing shape and support for the body.
Bone stores essential mineral salts, while bone marrow provides a manufacturing
plant for the formation of blood cells. Manganese is necessary for bone growth,
development, and replacement. Manganese is involved with the health and
maintenance of ligaments and tendons, as demonstrated in numerous animal
studies. Manganese helps to form cartilage and synovial fluid and is required to
synthesize bone. Manganese is also necessary (in small quantities) for protein and fat
metabolism. Manganese supports healthy nerves and strengthens immunity while
also playing a role in blood-sugar regulation and energy production.

How Biost Keeps You Healthy
Maintains cellular health
Protomorphogen™ extract is the brand name of Standard Process’ extracts
derived from nucleoprotein-mineral molecules. The foundation for the function
of these uniquely formulated, nucleoprotein-mineral extracts comes from the
antigen-antibody reaction that takes place during normal cell maintenance. The
antigenic properties promote healthy cellular division, function, and growth.
When a tissue needs support, at least a dozen different compounds are formed
that can cause white blood cells to travel together toward the compromised area.
These compounds include degenerative products of the tissues themselves. They
strongly activate the macrophage system, and within a few hours, the
macrophages begin to devour the destroyed tissue byproducts. At times, the
macrophages can also affect the structure of the remaining healthy cells. The veal
bone PMG™ extract in Biost appears to neutralize the circulating antibodies,
thereby contributing to the maintenance of cellular health.

Supports skeletal health
Manganese acts as a catalyst and a cofactor in many enzymatic processes important
in skeletal and connective-tissue development. Manganese is necessary for
appropriate bone growth and development. Manganese plays a prominent role
among the enzymes necessary for mucopolysaccharide synthesis.
Mucopolysaccharide is an important constituent of the bone and cartilage structural
matrix, as well as in the health and maintenance of ligaments and tendons.

Improves calcium absorption
While many people fail to take in adequate amounts of calcium from their diets,
their calcium intake is further compromised by consuming food or drinks that
inhibit calcium absorption or that contain calcium in a complex state. Calcium
lactate is a very soluble and highly bioavailable calcium salt, changing to calcium
bicarbonate (the type used by the body) in one chemical step. Unlike other
forms of calcium that are largely insoluble in water and need acid conditions in
order to be absorbed, Standard Process’ calcium lactate is highly soluble in
water (a neutral pH) and does not depend on acidic conditions to function.

D
Supports Bone Tissue and Increases Bioavailability of Calcium
The vitamin D complex found in Cataplex D supplies essential nutrients for
maintaining healthy bones, muscle, teeth, and epithelial tissue. Vitamin D plays
an important role in cell replication and tissue formation and helps maintain a
healthy immune system. The vitamin D in Cataplex D increases the availability
and absorption of calcium by all tissues. Vitamin D also helps control blood
levels of calcium and phosphate, which work together at the cellular level to
supply energy and the materials for growth and repair. Calcium also plays a
significant role in the growth process, influencing reproductive health and
keeping bones and teeth at the appropriate density for proper growth and
maintenance. Vitamin A is essential to the normal growth process and is also
supportive of reproductive health.

How Cataplex D Keeps You Healthy
Builds strong bones and teeth
Vitamin D maintains calcium and phosphate levels to ensure correct
mineralization of bones. Vitamin D also plays a role in calcium absorption.
Vitamin D requires several other nutrients for assimilation, including the
calcium and the vitamin A present in Cataplex D. The human body contains
more calcium than any other mineral. Almost 90 percent of that calcium is used
in the bones and teeth.

Supports normal growth and reproductive health
Vitamin A is essential to the synthesis of ribonucleic acid (RNA) in its role in the
normal growth process. Vitamin A also supports reproductive health by
participating in both RNA and protein synthesis. Vitamin A helps support
healthy sperm in males and helps support healthy pregnancy in females. Calcium
works with phosphorus at the cellular level, reacting with proteins, fats, and
carbohydrates to supply energy and the materials for proper growth and repair
of cells.

Promotes healthy immune function
Vitamin D is recognized as fundamental to the development and control of
important cells in the immune system, including lymphocytes and macrophages.
Vitamin D acts on immune cells, producing a variety of chemical messengers.
Adequate levels of vitamin D are required in these processes to maintain the
integrity of the immune system.

Whole Food Philosophy
Our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, challenged
common scientific beliefs by choosing a
holistic approach of providing nutrients
through whole foods. His goal was to provide
nutrients as they are found in nature—in a
whole food state where he believed their
natural potency and efficacy would be
realized. Dr. Lee believed that when nutrients
remain intact and are not split from their
natural associated synergists—known and
unknown—bioactivity is markedly enhanced
over isolated nutrients. Following this
philosophy, even a small amount of a whole
food concentrate will offer enhanced
nutritional support, compared to an isolated
or fractionated vitamin. Therefore, one should
examine the source of nutrients rather than
looking at the quantities of individual
nutrients on product labels.
Studies on nutrients generally use large doses and these studies, some
of which are cited below, are the basis for much of the information we
provide you in this publication about whole food ingredients. See the

Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata)
A Phytotherapist’s Passion
“Philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner once
said that, for every human illness, somewhere
in the world there exists a plant which is the
cure. I believe that there is a healing potential
locked inside plants which is integral with their
evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to
learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature.”

Gotu Kola Complex: Tissue Support Formula
Gotu Kola Complex is a unique combination of Gotu Kola herb and
concentrated extracts of Grape Seed and Ginkgo leaf that supports the
normal tissue repair process.*
Clinical trials suggest that to be effective Gotu Kola and Grape Seed
extract should contain substantial levels of the important plant
constituents: triterpenes and procyanidins respectively.
1,2
Standardized
Ginkgo extract, containing 24% ginkgo flavonglycosides (ginkgo flavone
glycosides) has been also extensively investigated in clinical trials.
2

‘Standardized’ means the extracts must contain a certain amount of
important constituents.*
Healthy tissues
Connective tissue gets its name because of its function: it connects other
tissues and body systems. Collagen and elastin are important components
of connective tissues. The normal processes of tissue repair are mostly
a function of connective tissues.
3,4
Another type of tissue is epithelial
tissue. The outer layer of skin is epithelial tissue; beneath this is the
dermis made of connective tissue. Because blood vessels do not occur in
epithelial tissues, the connective tissue layer is essential so the epithelial
cells can receive nutrients from the blood vessels in the connective tissue
beneath.
3
*
How Gotu Kola Complex Keeps You Healthy
Promotes healthy tissues, supports capillary integrity and the
body’s normal tissue repair process
The triterpenes of Gotu Kola have been used clinically to support the
normal repair process of skin.
5,6
Gotu Kola has been used traditionally
to help maintain healthy tissue fluid levels during the normal repair
processes of skin, muscles and cartilage.
7
*
Capillaries are very small blood vessels that are in close contact with the
surrounding tissues. The fluids that nourish these tissues, the wastes that
are excreted, the oxygen, water and food that are absorbed all enter and
leave via the capillaries.
3
In mostly uncontrolled clinical trials, standardized
Grape Seed extract promoted healthy blood vessel walls and healthy
capillaries. This helped prevent leakage of fluid from the capillaries to
the surrounding body tissues.
8-12
These activities have also been shown
clinically for the triterpenes of Gotu Kola.
1,13,14
The results from one trial
suggest that the triterpenes of Gotu Kola provide benefit by helping
maintain normal, healthy connective tissue in the walls of veins.

Experiments in test tubes are often conducted to learn more about how herbal extracts work
in the body. These tests suggest that the triterpenes of Gotu Kola support existing collagen and
promote the normal synthesis of collagen in the skin and vein wall.
1,15
These triterpenes also
support the epithelial cells in the inner layer of veins.
1
The procyanidins of Grape Seed also
support existing collagen and elastin within vein walls.
2
*
Gotu Kola is recommended traditionally to support healthy stomach and duodenal tissue.
16
The
benefit of this traditional use has also been shown in uncontrolled trials using the triterpenes of
Gotu Kola.
17
*
Supports healthy circulation
In a controlled clinical trial, standardized Ginkgo extract enhanced healthy blood flow in the
capillaries of the fingers.
18
Enhanced circulation is an important factor in supporting the healing
process in tissues throughout the body. Healthy circulation provides the tissues with oxygen,
nutrients and the substances used by the body in the normal repair process.*

Bone Complex: Flavonoids for Structural Support
Bone Complex is a unique combination of Epimedium aerial parts, Kudzu
root, Red Clover flowering tops and Black Cohosh root. Three of these
herbs contain flavonoids which may support healthy bones. Flavonoids
are a large group of naturally occurring compounds (many are found
in foods), and are classified by structure into several groups including
flavonols and isoflavones.*
Bone: structure & function
Connective tissue protects and supports the body and its organs. Bone is
one type of connective tissue. The functions of bones include support
(eg posture), protection (eg of the brain, spinal cord), motion, mineral
storage (mostly calcium and phosphate), energy storage (eg fat-rich
yellow marrow) and production of blood cells (occurs in the red marrow).
Bone is a tissue that is constantly changing. Like other connective
tissue, bone is made up of collagen, but unlike other connective tissue
it also contains a lot of calcium salts, mainly calcium phosphate. The
combination of collagen and calcium phosphate makes bones strong
yet flexible. Some bones grow for your entire life, others stop growing
(in length) in your twenties. Bones are not uniformly solid and they are
made up of many parts. Several of these parts, including the periosteum,
a thin membrane covering the outside of the bone, contain the cells
necessary for the growth and repair of bone.
1-3
*
Healthy bones: breaking down & building up
Bones cannot grow continually. As the width of a bone increases, the
marrow cavity needs to remain the same size relative to the length of
the bone, so some of the cells in the walls of the cavity are destroyed. In
addition to this, the body’s tissues need a certain amount of calcium
(eg for muscle contraction, nerve conduction), so the matrix part of
the bone is broken down (to release calcium). The matrix can also be
rebuilt to deposit calcium. This breaking down and rebuilding is called
remodeling. As well as allowing the body to store calcium, remodeling
allows worn or stressed bone to be removed and replaced with new
bone tissue.
1,2
*
The cells responsible for bone growth are called osteoblasts
(osteo = bone, blast = bud). Osteoclasts are the cells responsible for the
breakdown (osteo = bone, clast = break) and removal (called resorption)
of bone tissue.
1,2
*
Normal bone growth in children and adolescents, and replacement
of bone tissue in adults depend on several factors including sufficient
quantities of calcium and phosphorus in the diet, sufficient vitamins
A, C and D and the manufacture of the proper amounts of the certain
hormones in the body. Bones respond to stress by increasing osteoblast
activity, leading to an increase in bone formation and/or bone density.
Physical activity is an example of one such stress: a physically active
person doing weight-bearing exercise can build stronger bones.

Battle of the bone cells?
After childhood, remodeling usually occurs at a balanced rate: for every bone unit that is broken
down, another is rebuilt. The rate of remodeling varies according to the part of the bone and
the location of the bone. However, at midlife, particularly for women, the osteoblasts become
less active leading to a decrease in bone mass. Other factors that can contribute to a decrease in
bone mass in later years include cigarette smoking, excessive intake of alcohol and use of certain
prescription drugs.

How Bone Complex Keeps You Healthy
Supports bone health
Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials have found that Black Cohosh and
the flavonoids in Epimedium, Kudzu and Red Clover help keep bones strong and healthy.
4-8
This
is particularly the case in mature women, and often in conjunction with weight-bearing exercise
and a healthy diet containing food sources of calcium and vitamin D.*
These flavonoids may do this by supporting normal bone remodeling process and optimal repair
of bone tissue that has been damaged as a consequence of normal wear and tear and aging.
Specifically, this support may be achieved by rebalancing bone remodeling to have a net positive
effect on bone formation compared to bone resorption.
