Arthritis, Joint Pain & Chronic Pain Management – Tumeric Curcumin Plus

While turmeric is well-known for its bright yellow pop or its popularity in South Asian cuisine; many people are now discovering this spice’s powerful antioxidant benefits.

The VitaPost Turmeric Curcumin Plus formula provides a significant serving of curcumin, turmeric’s primary active ingredient. In various studies, curcumin has shown potential to support joint and muscle health, provide potent antioxidant support, and support a healthy immune system.

Turmeric Curcumin is formulated with three key ingredients:

  • Turmeric – This spice is one of the most popular food supplements ever, with studies benefits for body & mind health and antioxidant properties
  • Curcuminoids – These natural polyphenol compounds are derived from turmeric. Studies indicate curcuminoids provide support for the immune system, cognitive function, and joint health
  • BioPerine – A patented extract of peppercorn, BioPerine is used to dramatically increase the absorption of curcumin

Turmeric Curcumin Plus is made in the US in an FDA registered facility that follows GMP guidelines. Ingredients in the formula are both domestic and imported.

Bone & Joint Health Support – Collagen Complex

This supplement provides 1500mg per serving of high-quality hydrolyzed collagen peptides to support healthy skin, bones, joints and organs.

Basic Building Block

Collagen is an indispensable building material for the construction of our bodies, and it’s used to provide shape and structure. There are many types of collagen, and each has different properties. Type I collagen is stronger than steel by weight, type II acts as springs for shock absorption, and type III is used in hollow structures such as the bladder.

Normal dietary collagen needs to be broken down into peptides (by digestive processes) before it can be absorbed in the gut, and this means the type of collagen you eat makes no difference to its nutritional value. The collagen peptides in Collagen Complex are already beneficially ‘broken down’ (hydrolyzed) and are readily available for the body to use.

Supports Healthy Skin, Bones and Joints

Studies have shown that dietary collagen can support the skin’s natural structure and firmness, reducing the new appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles. It also supports the repair of everyday skin damage. Structurally, collagen is key to both the strength of bones and the suppleness of joints.

Collagen also makes up a significant proportion of muscle mass and the internal organs. Supplementing collagen peptides can support the body’s natural production of collagen throughout the body.

Inflammation, Joint Pain & Muscle Health Support – Tumeric Ginger Plus

Prevent Muscle Shrinkage & Strength Loss – Max Gains

For years we’ve been instructing our patients who just had injuries or post surgeries to not rest for a prolonged period of time, and there is science and research behind it:

  • Disuse of the muscles leads to atrophy and a loss of muscle strength at a rate of around 12% a week (Jiricka, 2008). After 3–5 weeks of bedrest, almost half the normal strength of a muscle is lost.
  • Atrophy can occur after only a short period of immobility. One study found that 72 hours of limb immobilisation can cause atrophy of type 1 and type 2 fibres by 14% and 17% respectively (Lindboe and Platou, 1984). It appears that the larger and better trained the muscle, the faster the loss of muscle strength, and the quicker the deconditioning process (Jiricka, 2008).

More info on disuse atrophy here: https://www.nursingtimes.net/clinical-archive/orthopaedics/effects-of-bedrest-3-musculoskeletal-and-immune-systems-skin-and-self-perception-29-06-2009/

So we recommend patients who just had injuries or operations, or individuals who are more sedentary as well as the elderly who tend to have poor nutrition and awareness, to intake some specialized muscle health supplements to

  • prevent / slowdown muscle size shrinkage
  • improve muscle recovery and growth

These will help you to not only recover faster, but improve your muscle strength which will translate to better performance in all movements relating to use of muscles (which is everything movement) such as standing, balance, walking, running, recovery etc.

There are four different stacks in Max Gains, but for most normal people and post injury or women, you can just pay attention to these two stacks:

  1. Support – Max Gains Support supplements provide workout support off the bench with ‘post cycle therapy’ support, joint support, and gut health support formulas.
  2. Women – Max Gains Women’s Workout supplements are designed with female-friendly formulas.

All products in the Max Gains range are legal, and have been manufactured in an FDA registered facility to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines.

Burn Calories, Curbs Cravings & Feel Full Quicker – Green Coffee Plus

Ketone Bodies For Ketogenic Weight Loss – Keto Trim

Ketogenic “keto” diet is a very popular diet today because it works.

The trouble about it is that it’s easy to fall off the keto bandwagon by accidental calories, and the main function of keto trim is to kick-start and accelerate the ketogenic process by providing ready-to-use ketone bodies to jump-start one’s keto weight loss journey.

  • The ketogenic diet uses stored fat as energy instead of sugar from one’s diet. By sticking to a strictly low-carb / high-fat / adequate-protein food intake, one’s metabolism becomes tuned to processing fat.
  • ‘Ketone bodies’ – the key to ketogenic diets. Ketogenesis is the natural process where your liver converts fats into ketone bodies, which can then be used as fuel for your brain and muscles. Ketosis is when you’re using up ketone bodies rather than sugar as fuel. Keto Trim is a high-quality source of those ketone bodies as healthy salts (the patented goBHB®).
  • Avoiding ‘keto flu’ with Keto Trim. Restricting carbohydrates in your diet and getting into ketosis can be difficult. Some people feel lethargic and hazy during the changeover from high-carb to low-carb diet, and this has been dubbed the ‘keto flu’. Although short-lived, keto flu can influence one’s commitment to the diet.

Consuming exogenous ketone bodies (goBHB®) can support ketosis directly, avoiding keto flu and easing those cheat-meal hiccups. Keto Trim is made in the US in an FDA registered facility that follows GMP guidelines. Ingredients in the formula are both domestic and imported.

Healthy Body Composition & Weight Loss – CLA2000 Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

Contrary to the dated popular belief that high-fat foods are bad for you, many kinds of fat are actually beneficial to health. CLA is one of these special fats. Some research into the effects of CLA has suggested it can support a healthy body composition.1,2,4

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a form of fat that is commonly obtained from dairy, beef, and other foods that are high in polyunsaturated fats.

CLA2000 is made with 2000mg of 80% concentrated CLA extract from Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius). The CLA in the Safflower oil in CLA2000 is concentrated using a proprietary process, yielding the final high percentage that’s found in CLA2000.

  • Supports a healthy body composition – When taken daily in the long term, some studies have suggested CLA can help support a healthy body composition.
  • Exercise and dieting support – The nutritional benefits of adding CLA to your diet can help support your exercise regime and dieting goals.

CLA 2000 is made in the US within an FDA registered facility that follows GMP guidelines. Ingredients in the formula are both domestic and imported.

Prevents Energy Storage As Fat / Cholesterol – Garcinia Cambogia Plus

Garcinia Cambogia is a pumpkin shaped fruit that grows in the jungles of SouthEast Asia, and is rich in Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA). HCA works by acting against ‘ATP citrate lyase’, an enzyme that supports the storage of energy in the body as fat or cholesterol.

Garcinia cambogia is abundant with a key compound called hydroxycitric acid (HCA). HCA is a competitive inhibitor of (acts against) ‘ATP citrate lyase,’ which is an enzyme that supports the storage of energy in the body as fat or cholesterol.1

VitaPost Garcinia Cambogia Plus contains 95% garcinia cambogia extract, making this supplement one of the most potent concentrations of HCA on the market. Many other products may misrepresent the concentration of HCA inside the capsules and leave customers with less than 60% purity.

Garcinia Cambogia Plus also contains trace minerals including calcium, potassium, and is a high-potency source of chromium. There have been many studies into the effects of chromium, a trace nutrient that is involved with blood sugar and metabolism.

Garcinia Cambogia Plus is made in the US within an FDA registered facility that follows GMP guidelines. Ingredients in the formula are both domestic and imported.

Probiotic 40-Billion

Probiotics are the good bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. There are 10 times more probiotics in your gut than cells in the rest of your body.

Some strains of good bacteria within VitaPost Probiotic 40-Billion have shown promising results:

  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus can produce lactic acid which sets back bad bacteria
  • Bifidobacterium Lactis was shown in a high-quality study to support the immune system
  • Lactobacillus Plantarum is known for its support for intestinal walls
  • Lactobacillus Paracasei is associated with a good balance of bacteria in the gut

Probiotic supplements are a popular option for affiliate marketing as they reflect a ‘pain point’ for many people. While many people would like to increase the number of beneficial bacteria in their digestive tract, less people are interested in the pickled and fermented foods that are rich in probiotics.

Probiotic 40-Billion is a convenient way to include beneficial bacteria in your diet.

VitaPost Probiotic 40-Billion is made in the US within an FDA registered facility that follows GMP guidelines. Ingredients in the formula are both domestic and imported.

Digestive Enzymes

Digestion is the process of breaking down food. Our bodies produce enzymes that are essential to digestion, but many people could benefit from extra support.

Helps Break Down Most Foods

The broad-spectrum formula includes helpful enzymes that can support the digestion of proteins, starches, sugars, lactose, fats, nuts, plant and fungi fibers, and gluten. Digestive Enzymes provides 18 different enzymes, some of which act together, and each is matched specifically to a certain kind of food.

The formula can’t prevent food allergies or intolerances, but it can support healthy digestion in healthy people.

Get More From What You Eat

Chewing breaks up big bits of food, the stomach makes the pieces microscopic, and enzymes help to break apart those microscopic particles so they can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Some foods are hard to digest, and supplementary enzymes taken alongside those can help break them down for more efficient absorption.

This could be useful to anyone who is looking to get the most from their food, including people on restricted diets, bodybuilders and the health-conscious.
