Methyl Folate ((6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid or (6S)-5-MTHF) is the most biologically active form of folic acid. Quatrefolic is the 4th generation development in folate delivery. With certain inherited errors in metabolism and under a variety of physiologic stresses, the transformation of folic acid into the active form of folate either does not properly take place or is inadequate. Unlike folic acid, 5-MTHF can cross the blood-brain barrier. HEALTH CLAIM: Healthful diets with adequate folic acid may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with certain brain or spinal cord defects.
Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) 30:1 concentrate is standardized to contain 80% total Milk Thistle seed flavonoids, including the important Silymarin fractions isosilybinins A and B, silybinins A and B, silychristin and silydianin.This particular group of flavonoids, collectively known as Silymarin, supports liver function by raising protective glutathione levels.
Beneficial for maintenance of the liver, the main detoxifying organ of the body*.
Supports glutathione, one of the primary antioxidants found in the body*.
The Greek herbalist Dioscorides catalogued milk thistle in his list of healing plants for liver conditions, improving bile flow and stimulating digestion.* The Roman author Pliny was of a similar opinion. Indeed, milk thistle (Silybum marianum) extracts have been used as traditional herbal remedies for almost 2000 years and milk thistle is now extensively cultivated as a healing herb. This is especially true in Germany, where milk thistle is quite popular. Despite its distinctive prickly leaves and milky sap, milk thistle is sometimes confused with a different plant known as blessed or holy thistle (Cnicus benedictus).
Today, milk thistle extracts are among the most popular and the best researched of all herbs. Yet, this herb had largely become forgotten by the mid-20th Century. It was barely mentioned in the United States Dispensatory of 1947, and the most common folk use outside of Central Europe was to improve lactation.
Modern research has focused on bile production and liver function. German scientists have produced an extract called silymarin, which has a variety of liver-protectant properties.* The active principles normally constitute only 1-4 percent of the total plant, so it is necessary to concentrate the extract extensively to provide benefits. Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle provides just such a potent concentrate.
Silymarin refers to three active flavonoid components of milk thistle: primarily silybin with smaller amounts of silydianin and silychristin. This trio neutralizes toxins and improves liver function.* Its action rests primarily upon the ability to inhibit production and activity of hepatotoxic (liver toxic) compounds.* More recent evidence indicates that it benefits the health of several other organs as well.*
The liver is the primary organ for detoxification. Many toxins are either free radicals, or encourage free radical production and may subsequently interfere with the liver’s defenses against free radicals. As a potent antioxidant, silymarin intervenes in free radical generation and protects against many reactive oxygen species.* In some measurement systems, silymarin is ten times more effective than vitamin E in preventing unwanted oxidation. The extract also increases the liver’s content of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione (GSH) by ~35 percent, and increases the levels of the body’s major antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD).* Silymarin also modulates the actions of lipoxygenase in the liver.* Lipoxygenase acts upon polyunsaturated fatty acids to produce pro-inflammatory compounds called leukotrienes, which cause damage to liver cell membranes.
Silymarin is active against all of these assaults upon liver cell integrity and function. It therefore has direct and indirect antioxidant benefits by elevating the body’s own defenses. Research has shown that milk thistle extracts also significantly enhance cellular immune biomarkers.*
The liver is capable of extensive self-regeneration, but silymarin can even markedly increase this ability to replace damaged cells.* There is also some suggestion that silymarin stimulates protein synthesis in the liver.* Nevertheless, silymarin does not encourage malignant liver cell growth.* Growing evidence suggests that silymarin has protective properties to the kidneys that mirror those in the liver.*
Classically, milk thistle is associated with improved digestion and bile production.* These are important functions of the liver and their impairment can lead to undesirable outcomes in the body. Clinical trials have supported this traditional employment of the herb. The extract can increase bile solubility and possibly help guard against stone formation.*
Silymarin exhibits poor solubility in water. Delivery in the form of teas provides less than 10 percent of total activity. Older studies demonstrating silymarin as a bile flow-inducer used alcoholic tinctures rather than the water-based preparations commonly sold today.
Only 20-50 percent of silymarin is assimilated from the gastrointestinal tract at any given time. Thus, an effective milk thistle supplement needs to be highly concentrated, like Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle, to provide a physiologically significant amount. According to the German monograph covering milk thistle, 12-15 grams of the crude herbal extract provides 200-400 mg silymarin. This is equivalent to the amount delivered by only 3 capsules of Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle.
Jarrow Formulas’ complete line of over 350 nutritional products includes vitamins, minerals, probiotics, standardized herbal concentrates, amino acids, enzymes and enteral nutrition products. Customers can be assured of purity, value and potency when choosing these products.

Jarro-Dophilus eps is a Stable-Dophilus probiotic due to its shelf life stability at room temperature and its enteric-coated delivery system, which protects the beneficial probiotic strains while in transit through the stomach’s acidic environment. The delivery system ensures that a maximum number of viable cells are delivered into the intestinal tract, where they can fully exert their beneficial effects. The strains in Jarro-Dophilus eps are selected from the following 4 genera: Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Lacto coccus and Pedi coccus. Probiotic Strains such as b. longum bb536, l. rhamnosus r0011 and l. helveticus r0052 are well characterized and have been shown to have the ability to interact, via multiple mechanisms of action, with the intestinal tract and the microbial ecosystem within it. These strains have been clinically shown to have a positive influence on the composition of the intestinal microflora, promote intestinal health and support immune response. EnteroGuard Ensures the maximum survival of probiotic bacteria to the small intestines, and hence enhances their effectiveness.
In the 1970s, researchers began to realize that essential fatty acids were beneficial. We can thank Greenland Eskimos for this discovery, because it was their high fat diet from cold water fish that made their low incidence of coronary artery disease so striking. Two members of the omega-3 family of fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), are particularly noted for their health promoting properties. DHA, in particular, plays a key role in the proper formation, development, and function of the brain, retina, and central nervous system. *
DHA is selectively incorporated into the nerves, retina, and gray matter of the brain – all being tissues responsible for nerve transmission. In fact, DHA makes up about 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in the brain and roughly 60% in the retina. DHA is so important that the body is able to recognize it and transport it preferentially to the nervous system. There are even special mechanisms to allow it to cross the blood-brain barrier. The prevalence of DHA in brain cell membranes results in a powerful impact on the fluidity and function of cell membranes.* DHA levels may also affect the capacity to regulate brain cell membrane proteins, which are critical to neuronal function.*
DHA is essential for the proper neurological development of a growing fetus and infant. Our bodies are capable of producing some DHA from other omega-3 precursors, but what we are able to convert is only a small percentage of what is needed to promote optimum brain health and, in particular, brain development.* Because of this developmental advantage to babies, DHA has found its way into breast milk via evolution. And of importance to modern mothers is research showing that increased maternal dietary intake of DHA leads to higher levels in breast milk. Consequently, sufficient intake of DHA during and after pregnancy is vitally important.* Some pediatricians suggest that maternal stores of DHA be augmented ideally as early as three months prior to conception to ensure an adequate supply for the fetus. Scientists have pointed to DHA as one reason why breast-fed children tend to have higher IQ scores and better visual acuity than formula-fed children. The evidence is substantial enough that infant formula manufacturers have begun adding DHA to their products.*
ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a term used to describe otherwise normal children who exhibit hyperactive, impulsive, and inattentive behavior. Current studies indicate a possible link between essential fatty acid deficiencies and ADHD. Blood samples from children diagnosed as having ADHD show significantly lower levels of several essential fatty acids, including DHA. Although research in this area continues, these preliminary findings further suggest DHA’s importance in developing children.* Switching gears from young to old, aging leads to an increased risk in developing abnormal deposits in the brain and damage to brain-cell interconnections. This can lead to the deterioration of memory and the decreased ability to carry out daily tasks. DHA displayed some protection against both dendritic damage in one mouse model and the accumulation of amyloid plaques in another. Decreased DHA blood levels can also often be found in people experiencing age-related cognitive impairment. Some research has suggested that supplemental DHA may even have some effects on mood, but other studies find no changes.* The results are preliminary, but these potential effects seem logical given DHA’s fundamental role in ensuring neuronal membrane fluidity and thereby facilitating cell function and communication.*
Typical omega-3 fish oil products usually contain higher concentrations of EPA and less DHA. Jarrow Formulas Max DHA is a special molecular distillate of calamari oil that provides highly concentrated amounts of DHA along with EPA. Max DHA’s molecular distillation process ensures the removal of undesirable contaminants. Max DHA delivers a high level DHA and is ideal for supporting healthy brain function in all ages, but especially in children and seniors.*
Overall, DHA supplements are relatively safe. Caution should be noted for anyone taking coumadin/warfarin or any other type of oral blood thinner. In adults, the typical amount of fish oil that has been used in clinical studies ranges from 1,000 to 3,000 mg per day. In children, the recommendation has been 40 mg/kg of body weight. Max DHA includes five mg of gamma tocopherol and two mg of ascorbyl palmitate for antioxidant protection of the long-chain fatty acids from oxidative degradation, which leads to rancidity.

Jarrow Formulas Yum-Yum PS100 Gummies deliver 100 mg phosphatidylserine per serving in a delicious gummy. Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a natural phospholipid that is an essential component of cell membranes. PS promotes brain function by helping to maintain neuronal membrane fluidity to support cell-to-cell communication, which is essential for cognition, mental performance, attentiveness and reaction time. PS may be beneficial during stress because it can modulate the release of cortisol, a catabolic stress hormone.
