RegeneMax™ provides ch-OSA® (cholinestabilized orthosilicic acid), that helps naturally nourish your body’s beauty proteins. Regular orthosilicic acid is highly unstable, leading it to form polymers. These polymers are too large for the human body to absorb. But the patented “choline stabilization” technology in RegeneMax prevents the polymers from forming, ensuring optimal absorption. RegeneMax has been formulated with clinically proven ch-OSA for your assurance.

Estro Harmony™ is for women who want relief from menopausal hot flashes and support for breast health. Research suggests the ingredients in this formula can also benefit cardiovascular status and bone remodeling. This all-natural formula delivers a proprietary blend of plant lignan extract and 8-prenylnaringenin (8-PN) from hops, at clinically relevant levels, to support the body’s natural process of healthy aromatase activity and exert phytoestrogen (e.g., enterolactone) and antioxidant activity.

It features specially selected herbs and nutrients that support the adrenal glands’ adaptive response as well as support circulation, relaxation and overall well-being. Featuring a non soy derived source of isoflavones, MedCaps Menopause may also beneficially influence estrogen receptor function.

Melatonin CR is a vegetarian formula with a biphasic delivery system that releases melatonin quickly and then steadily. Melatonin is naturally produced in the pineal gland in response to changes in light exposure; it helps promote healthy sleep patterns as well as antioxidant and immune activities. Melatonin CR can support these functions by helping to maintain normal levels of melatonin in the body.

MRK supplies three active, orally bioavailable formulations—N.O.max ER™, Resveratin™ Plus, and ALAmax CR™—which function synergistically to support the critical role that mitochondria play in metabolism. The patented functional components found in the MRK are safe, well-tolerated, and have been uniquely prepared to enhance both absorption and overall bioavailability in order to maximize patient benefit and satisfaction.

Hormone Protect™ is an ideal combination of DIM (diindolylmethane) and SGS™ (glucoraphanin) that helps protect estrogen-sensitive tissues by promoting healthy estrogen metabolism and supporting detoxification and neutralization of harmful estrogen metabolites and xenoestrogens.

ProbioMax DDS™ is a chewable probiotic designed to activate in the oral cavity for support of healthy teeth and gums. As you chew it releases the safe and powerful DDS-18™ strain of Streptococcus salivarius—a beneficial bacterium that normally occurs in a healthy oral cavity. S salivarius DDS-18 then attaches to cells in the oral cavity and colonizes, positively affecting the bacterial population therein and naturally defending the teeth and gums.
