ADRENO-LYPH PLUSIngredients: High Potency Adrenal with synergistic support. Each Tablet Supplies: 235 mg of tissue concentrate from bovine source (not extracts) as Adrenal 221mg, Pituitary 12mg, Parotid 2mg, Vitamin C 175mg, Bioflavonoid Complex 45mg, Pantothenic Acid (D-Calcium Pantothenate) 70mg, DL-Methionine 60mg, Choline Bitartrate 60mg, Vitamin B-1 15mg, Vitamin B-2 15mg, Vitamin B-6 15mg, Niacinamide 50mg, Magnesium 100mg.
Supportive Function: High-quality, concentrated adrenal glandular support is boosted by pituitary and parotid glandulars, along with the vitamins, minerals and amino acids that synergistically contribute to the healthy maintenance of these tissues.
When is adrenal support effective? Stress and conditions caused by stress, fatigue, lethargy, weakness, mental fuzziness, irritability, and inability to handle everyday tasks. May also be beneficial in hypotension problems.
Clinical Applications/Research: Glandulars are thought to provide precursor substances that the body can use to support and enhance the function of a specific gland. They may provide the potential “life force” the body needs to enhance function of a specific organ or gland.
Vitamin C is sometimes called “the anti-stress” vitamin. There is more vitamin C in the adrenal gland than any other tissue in the body. Studies have shown that rats exposed to the stress of radiation die unless a major drop in serum vitamin C is prevented. When the drop in vitamin C is prevented, the stress of radiation is handled until the body returns to homeostasis.
B vitamins, especially B-2, B-6, niacinamide and pantothenic acid are energy-producing vitamins and serve as precursors for vital energy/anti-stress glands, such as adrenals and thyroid.
Pantothenic acid: Vitamin B-5, or pantothenic acid, functions as part of the molecule called Co-enzyme A or CoA. It is vital for optimal adrenal activity (including increasing production of cortisone and other adrenal hormones), important for healthy skin and nerves, and supports the synthesis of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter), fatty acids, cholesterol, steroids, and phospholipids. It is known as one of the main anti-stress vitamins and can be made by the bacterial flora in the intestines.
Magnesium is a cofactor for many enzymes, including those in energy metabolism. Magnesium is known for its relaxation qualities.
Testimonials/Nutrient Tidbits: Low back pain: A doctor told me this story... “My pastor had a ten year history of severe low back weakness and problems. Although he was under regular spinal care, he still could not stand for longer than ½ hour without pain. My exam revealed weak adrenals. I placed him on Adreno-Lyph Plus and within two weeks he could stand without pain. This is a typical story about the results I see with Adreno-Lyph Plus.” Knee problems: Adrenal glandular support produces great results in cases of chronic knee pain. Another product, Sago-C 500, may be beneficial in chronic knee pain, elbow pain, etc. if an infection is involved.
Levels of Adrenal support: One doctor pointed out... For acute adrenal problems I use DSF Formula, for chronic adrenal problems I use Adreno-Lyph Plus, for minor adrenal problems I use the tincture Adreno Plus and for very minor problems and children I use Energizer Forte (Terry Hambrick, D.C.).
Bacterial Problems: A doctor reports... Immuno Plus in combination with Adreno Plus or Adreno-Lyph Plus works well for bacterial problems (Stephen Ediss, D.C.).
Suggested Dosage: 1 tablet 2 times daily Size: 60 or 120 tablets Price: € 29,15 en € 49,90 Vegetarian: No Contraindications: Do not take during pregnancy.

3 AMINO ALL Ingredients: Each Tablet Supplies: 1,000 mg of Natural Hydrolyzed Protein, which serves as a source of individual amino acids. This protein contains minimum nitrogen content of 16% and a minimum protein content of 92-97%. Only Bovine tissue sources are used. All of the amino acids in this preparation are of natural laevorotatory (L) form. Each 6 Tablets Typically Supplies: Isoleucine 66mg; Leucine 174mg, Lysine 216mg, Methionine 30mg, Phenylalanine 126mg, Threonine 120mg, Valine 168mg, Arginine 468mg, Histidine 36mg, Alanine 546mg, Tyrosine 24mg, Serine 198mg, Aspartic Acid 336mg, Glutamic Acid 582mg, Glycine 1,362mg, Hydroxylysine 60mg, Hydroxyproline 654mg, Proline 834mg.
Supportive Function: A comprehensive line-up of amino acids from natural hydrolyzed protein provides the building blocks for many of the body’s essential tissues, such as enzymes, hormones, antibodies, blood clotting factors, and muscle. Some may choose this supplement to increase the protein- to-carbohydrate ratio in a meal, aiding in achievement of a healthy blood sugar zone. Protein elicits glucagon secretion (the opposing hormone to insulin), which functions in times of low blood sugar to contribute to sugar homeostasis.
When is amino acid support helpful? Compromised immune systems, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, degenerative diseases, psoriasis, mononucleosis, herpes, allergies, muscle/nerve health, hypoglycemia, pre and post surgery, amino acid nutrition for athletes and weight loss.
Clinical Applications/Research: Amino-All is a source for condroitin sulfate, which has received a lot of attention for its role in cartilage regeneration and arthritis relief. Pioneering studies by J. F. Prudden have shown it may be one of the most important upcoming nutrients used to boost the immune system. Keats Publishing now offers a text (April 1998), devoted solely to bovine cartilage, entitled: “Boost your health with bovine cartilage," by Sally Eauclaire Osborne, MS. From the book, Sally says, “Paradoxically, it stimulates the immune system to fight cancer and viral diseases but suppresses it when necessary, as with allergies and rheumatoid arthritis.” Immune support: Antibodies and enzymes are made up of proteins.
Joint support: Bovine cartilage has a high content of tracheal cartilage in it, which has received attention for its role in cartilage regeneration. The cartilage provides all of the right precursors to help the cellular growth and repair process.
Weight loss: Protein can be very helpful when added to foods and shakes, because the protein content will lower the glycemic index of a carbohydrate meal. The glycemic index rates carbohydrates for their ability to turn to sugar in the body and stimulate insulin secretion, which can start a roller coaster of carbohydrate cravings.
Testimonials/Nutrient Tidbits: Nocturnal Hypoglycemics: Doctors report... Amino-all really helps my patients with blood sugar handling problems to sleep through the night. It is also good to add Amino-All to their protein snack to help maintain blood sugar levels. We have severe Hypoglycemics snack on 2 tablets every hour between meals. These tablets digest slowly and help maintain blood sugar levels until balance returns.
Energy: A doctor reports… My patients rave about increased energy levels and they just feel better. Also, their joints don’t hurt as bad!
Athletes: Helps athletes concerned with adding protein to their diet.
Kids: A doctor reports... I tell my mothers to give this to their kids before school to help them with their blood sugar swings in school.
Suggested Dosage: 1-2 tablets 3 times daily or as directed Size: 120 tablets Price: $18.00 Vegetarian: No Contraindications: People taking MAO inhibiting drugs have to avoid tyramine-containing foods and have to be careful with protein supplements. Do not take in PKU (contains phenylalanine). People taking MAOinhibitors should not supplement with tyrosine.
Supportive Function: This product helps support healthy uric acid levels and an anti-inflammatory environment.
When is uric acid maintenance support helpful? Gout, arthritic conditions due to high uric acid, etc.
Clinical Applications/Research: Arginine is a precursor for nitric oxide, which is essential to dilate blood vessels, allowing adequate blood flow to all tissues and organs, the heart, and to erectile tissues in both men and women. One of arginine’s major benefits is increasing circulation all over the body. In animal studies, arginine reduces cholesterol and atherosclerosis. It is necessary for the male’s production of sperm and comprises 85% of seminal fluid. Supplementation improves sperm count and quality and aids fertility. Arginine deficiency delays sexual maturity in both sexes and impairs the liver’s metabolism of fat. Taken on an empty stomach before sleep or 1 hour before vigorous exercise, arginine supplementation stimulates growth hormone production, which enhances the building and toning of muscle tissue and an enhanced immune response. It facilitates weight loss, reduction of body fat, and increases muscle mass. Arginine helps increase the size and activity of the thymus gland, aids in liver detoxification by neutralizing ammonia, and is involved with the production of the pituitary’s vasopressin. It is important to endocrine balance in both men and women. It stimulates the production of insulin and improves glucose tolerance. Arginine has beneficial effects on an overall sense of well-being, wound healing, and tissue repair.
Vitamin C and bioflavonoids, such as those found in black cherry, cranberry, and rutin, protect and strengthen capillaries, and help tp support an anti-inflammatory environment. The bioflavonoids are closely associated with vitamin C and enhance the effect of vitamin C when used in treatment (Merck Index, ibid p. 1243). Bioflavonoids, “contribute to the maintenance of normal blood vessel conditions by decreasing capillary permeability and fragility” (Merck Index, ibid p. 1243).
Alfalfa is an infection fighter; the high chlorophyll content in alfalfa was used by doctors in the 1940's for treating infections from surgical incisions, bed sores and inner ear problems (Heinerman, J. Heinerman’s Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs. 1988; Parker Publishing, West Nyack, NY. p. 2). Alfalfa extracts contain a high amounts of manganese, which reportedly improved the condition of a diabetic who failed to respond to insulin, as reported in the Journal of Nutrition (J of Nutr August, 1984, as cited in Heinerman, J. Heinerman’s Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs.
1988 Parker Publishing, West Nyack, NY. p. 3). “Alfalfa is a tonic, stimulant, appetizer and diuretic, and also relieves urinary disorders and edema” (Sharon, Dr. M. Complete Nutrition. 1994. Prion Publ., London, England. p. 135).
Black cherries are an excellent source of flavonoids. The flavonoids in black cherries are known as proanthocyanidins, and have beneficial effects. Generally the darker the cherry, the more nutritious they are.
