Find Serenity Now with HonoPure
HonoPure contains 98% pure honokiol extract from magnolia bark. This unique ingredient offers effective relaxation and calming support by promoting optimal GABA activity in the brain. HonoPure also helps support healthy neurotransmitter and neurological function, with additional benefits for cellular regulation, optimal mitochondrial function, antioxidant activity, and more.*
Honokiol is also a powerful antioxidant and neuro-protector that penetrates the blood-brain barrier, delivering healthy stress, mood, and neurological support. It’s also non- habit forming and not associated with next-day drowsiness.*
How to use HonoPure: Keep this formula on-hand for stressful days and situations or when you just need a tension buster — it has been shown to start working in 30 minutes to an hour. Honokiol can cause drowsiness for some people, so experiment to see if you need to take in the evening. While you can take HonoPure with or without food, we suggest combining it with food to avoid any potential stomach upset, which can happen at higher doses. Follow label directions for dosage.
Balance Your Body’s Fight-or-Flight Stress Response with PectaSol Modified Citrus Pectin
When your body faces a survival challenge, real or perceived, it triggers the well-known “fight-or-flight” response, where a flood of hormones and chemicals are released to help protect your body from danger.
When you deal with ongoing stress — physical or emotional/psychological — your biochemical alert system can get “stuck” in a survival mode of sorts. Your “fight-or-flight” mechanism never shuts down as it should, and your body’s production of a protein called galectin-3 (aka the “survival protein”) rages out of control, causing chronic inflammation and long-term health problems.
PectaSol Modified Citrus Pectin has been shown to help interrupt this cycle of destruction. In fact, PectaSol is the most-researched natural blocker of galectin-3. When unhealthy galectin- 3 is inhibited, its harmful effects can be dismantled, rending it inactive. This helps decrease unhealthy inflammation in the process — including neuron-inflammation in the brain, which affects mood and cognition.*
More than 80 studies support PectaSol’s health benefits, including peak cellular health, immune support, and heavy metal detox. Importantly, PetaSol undergoes a proprietary manufacturing process that reduces its molecular size for absorption into the bloodstream.*
The original, patented form of Modified Citrus Pectin, PectaSol is extracted from citrus fruits, including limes, lemons, and oranges. (The formula is grapefruit-free if that’s an issue for you.)
How to Use PectaSol: Choose from Unflavored or Lime Powder (top sellers), Capsules, or Tangerine-Flavored Chewables. The Lime Powder is made with lime juice crystals and stevia (it’s sugar-free). If you like limes or limeades, you’ll love the taste of this powder! The dosage depends on your health concerns — read label carefully for directions.
Formulated by award-winning Integrative Medicine expert and best-selling author, Isaac Eliaz, MD, PectaSol is the leading supplement for enhancing the body’s most essential self-healing mechanics.
Protect Your Immune System with MycoPhyto
The holiday season presents several challenges to your immune system — from increased stress to harsh weather to more time spent indoors and less sunshine. And any kind of stress, physical or mental, can put a strain on your immune system, potentially leaving you more vulnerable to illness.
One of the best ways to nourish your immune system is with mushrooms. Medicinal mushrooms help your immune system work “smarter” by balancing under- or overreactions.
There are over 140,000 different species of mushrooms in the world — six of these are standouts for their immune system benefits:
- Turkey tail
- Royal agaricus
MycoPhyto Complex is a blend of these six mushrooms, made from a unique growing process — the mushrooms are grown on immune-fortifying herbs. Growing the mushrooms on immune-supportive herbs helps “activate” the herbs and make the mushrooms more powerful. And these have been shown to contain higher concentrations of immune-bolstering compounds. And these herbs, when combined, are more potent than when used alone.*
How to use MycoPhyto Complex: There are two protocols for this powerful blend: You can take up to 6 capsules (or equivalent powder) three daily if you feel like you are getting sick. For general maintenance and immune support, take 3 capsules (or powder equivalent) one to two per day.
Sleep SOS with ecoSleep
Stress and a good night’s sleep simply do not mix — and quality deep sleep is essential for your physical and mental health! If you struggle with insomnia or restless sleep, do not ignore it. Try a natural, non-habit-forming supplement that helps promote restorative sleep. EcoSleep is a restorative sleep repair formula with a unique blend of botanicals, extracts, and nutrients for optimal rest and rejuvenation. More than just a sleep aid, ecoSleep promotes relaxation and a sense of calm, supports deep restful sleep, balances body clock rhythms, and optimizes nighttime repair processes — for a feeling of freshness and renewal upon waking. The formula contains a small amount of melatonin, as well as honokiol (mentioned above).*
How to use ecoSleep: The dosage is 1–2 capsules about 30 minutes before bedtime. This formula can be used nightly or as needed. It’s also perfect for travel, as it helps reset your internal clock.*
