Zinc – A recent review of studies look at vitamins and minerals for colds and flu treatment showed that taking 70 mg of zinc helped improve health if taken within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms–which is why this mineral is a key ingredient in many throat lozenges. Another study found that the mineral reduced the duration and severity of colds. It is recommended that you take a 4.5 to 23.7 mg zinc lozenge every half hour. Be warned: excessive zinc can depress the immune system, so don’t exceed the recommended daily dose of 70 mg.
Probiotics –Solid data suggests microbes may play a causal role in a large number of ailments–and restoring the proper balance of these microbes is being shown to help with colds and flu, mental health and most recently biggies like diabetes and heart disease. Probiotics reduce the duration of cold and flu symptoms and increase overall immune activity. A recent study on older adults finds that certain strains alter the immune cell profile to more closely resemble those found in healthy, younger populations.
Vitamin C – Just because vitamin C may not reduce your chances of contracting a the flu, research indicates that it can reduce infection symptoms and length. In general, antioxidants help your body resist illness because they protect cells against harmful free radicals and oxidative stress. It is recommended that you aim for 2,000–6,000 mg of vitamin C daily in divided doses. Reduce the dose if digestive upset results. If you have a sensitive tummy, opt for the gentler Ester-C form.
Like testosterone, Dihydrotestosterone is an androgen. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is actually created from testosterone combining with a common enzyme (5a-reductase enzyme) in your body. As young as being a fetus in your mothers womb DHT is very potent and crucial to development of males.
However once you get older DHT can cause problems in men like hair loss. High DHT levels in male patients tend to be the leading cause of hair loss due to DHT attaching its self to the hair follicle and for lack of a bette word “strangling” the follicle slowly until it thins out the hair and the follicle closes completely not allowing anymore hair growth. All the while increasing hair growth throughout the body like chest, arms, back.
This is what causes the hair loss - nutrients are unable to reach your hair follicles, and the hairs will slowly begin to weaken and die. The longer you wait to treat your Dihydrotestosterone related hair loss, the more likely it is that this hair loss becomes a permanent problem. In addition to causing hair loss, Dihydrotestosterone has also been linked to other health problems like prostate cancer.
We work with many different hair loss treatments to help you with these issues from topical to oral and combinations of both. If you are suffering form thinning hair then we can help you not only stop it in its tracks but reverse it!
First let’s look at what the liver does. The liver helps balance hormones, detoxify the body, metabolize fats, as we know these are very important functions.
Why is it important to have a healthy liver?
Removes toxins from blood
Processing Nutrients from food.
Stores glycogen, vitamins and minerals
Excretion of bilirubin, cholesterol, hormones, and drugs
Milk Thistle: This supplement helps prevent damage to the liver via the antioxidant and free radical effects of silymarin and silybin the active constituents of milk thistle. This supplement is made from the Milk Thistle plant which originated from Europe. Milk Thistle have shown to decrease liver enzymes in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease patients.

We work with a wide range of liver support supplement and are more than happy to help you with those. All you have to do to find out more is fill out the form below.
For each year over age 30, the level of testosterone in men starts to slowly dip at a rate of around 1 percent per year. A decrease in testosterone level is a natural result of aging.

Since Testosterone actually covers a wide array of functions if it is low it can cause significant physical and emotional impacts. Some of the physical impacts one can experience if their testosterone is low are as follows.

What is Sermorelin Acetate?
Sermorelin Acetate is a compound similar in structure to growth hormone
releasing hormone (GHRH). Sermorelin has been known to stimulate the
pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone.
Sermorelin is a bioidentical synthetic hormone peptide sequence comprised of 29 amino acids. Sermorelin was approved by the FDA to treat children but many functional medicine doctors are using it off label to optimize growth hormone levels of adult patients.
Unlike HGH, Sermorelin is affordable, and can be used off label
Sermorelin is best prescribed to taken at least 30 minutes before or after food consumption. Sermorelin is normally prescribed at night to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone and stimulate the pituitary gland during REM sleep.
