5' Adenosine Monophosphate-activated Protein Kinase (AMPK) is an enzyme that plays an essential role in energy balance. In essence, AMPK is able to detect the level of energy (i.e. number of ATP molecules) in a cell and helps regulate responses when it gets too high or too low. Increasing AMPK activity can cause cells to stop storing fat (especially in the abdominal section) and to start burning it as energy. AMPK may be used to stimulate metabolism, improve insulin sensitivity, decrease inflammation, promote glucose production from the liver and glucose uptake into the muscles, improve muscle performance, promote healthy aging, encourage cellular recycling (autophagy), regulate the production and turnover of mitochondria, act as an antioxidant, help with oxygen delivery, increases blood flow, help with fertility, decrease unwanted abdominal fat, support healthy weight, promote longevity, and protect heart health. This IC was made with the help of hesperidin and gynostemma pentaphyllum.
AMPK Activator brand names include:
Life Extension AMPK Metabolic Activator
Chromium is an essential trace mineral and when bound to picolinic acid, the bioavailability of chromium is increased. Chromium Picolinate may be used to improve insulin sensitivity, maintain normal blood sugar levels, boost energy, increase muscle mass, promote weight loss, reduce hunger and cravings. It may also be used to increase protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
Blueberries are often considered to be a superfood and have the highest antioxidant value of any fruit. It is rich in fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese as well as a compound called anthocyanin, which is an antioxidant and gives blueberries their blue color. Blueberries may be used to help protect against aging, prevent cancer, lower blood pressure, protect against heart disease, maintain brain function, improve memory, lower blood sugar levels, improve insulin sensitivity, fight urinary tract infection, reduce muscle damage after vigorous exercise, lower inflammation, maintain healthy skin, and help with digestion.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that helps maintain healthy, well-functioning cells. Moreover, it strengthens the immune system, supports metabolism and energy production, and may improve cognitive function. ALA has also been shown to be help balance blood glucose levels and help treat nerve damage (neuropathy) caused by diabetes.
Calcium D-glucarate is a chemical that is similar to the naturally occurring substance known as glucaric acid. Calcium D-glucarate is made by combining glucaric acid with calcium. It may be used to prevent breast, prostate, and colon cancer; as well as for removing cancer-causing agents, toxics, and steroid hormones from the body. It may also be used to maintain already normal cholesterol levels and facilitate healthy hormone metabolism. Calcium D-glucarate has also been shown to promote liver detoxification by enhancing the metabolism of hormones and environmental toxins.
Urinary Flow and Prostate Support may be used to help maintain a healthy prostate and urinary function. It may also be used to help promote healthy prostate cell cycle function, maintain normal testosterone level as well as normal spermatogenesis, treat enlarged prostate, enhance hair growth, boost libido and fertility, and reduce inflammation. This IC was made with the help of saw palmetto fruit (serenoa repens), pygeum africanum, milk thistle, turmeric, green tea, pomegranate, zinc, vitamin D3, and lycopene.
Wakame is a type of edible seaweed that is rich in various nutrients such as iodine, manganese, folate, iron, calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin A, and vitamin K. The health benefits associated with wakame include treat anemia, aid with digestion and reduce bloating, support normal thyroid function, reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels, promote heart health, protect bones against osteoporosis, help balance hormones, decrease blood sugar levels and improve insulin resistance, and help with weight loss. Wakame has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties.
Fucoidan is a natural sulfated polysaccharide that is found mostly in various species of brown seaweed such as mozuku, kombu, limumoui, and wakame. It may be used to increase enhance immune system function as well as provide antioxidant protection. Other uses include prevent blood clots, normalize blood composition, increase antiviral activity, inhibit the activity of tumor cells, regulate blood sugar levels, support connective tissue and cartilage, help maintain the health of the gastrointestinal tract, support the function of the kidneys and liver, as well as help with atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction and other illnesses, caused by aging.
Berberine Plus is wonderful for the body, mind, and spirit. It may be used to help with glucose levels, cardiovascular health, cholesterol levels, digestion, high blood pressure, inflammatory response, and mood. This IC was made with the help of naturally occurring berberine plant alkaloid.
Marine Phytoplankton contains two marine phytoplankton strains: the "Nanno" strain, which is a specific species of nannochloropsis and the "Gala" strain, which is packed with superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells. Marine Phytoplankton provides a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, electrolytes, and amino acids - all necessary for good health. Marine Phytoplankton may be used to increase energy and focus, slow down the signs of aging, improve vitality, decrease body and joint pain, improve blood pressure, support heart health, enhance sleep quality and promote deep sleep, support healthy blood sugar levels, improve the look of skin, support homeostasis, assist with healthy eyesight, reduce symptoms of heartburn, calm the mind and body, support healthy brain function, and help in supporting healthy immune, nervous, and endocrine responses.
