What Is Red Yeast Rice?

Red yeast (Monascus purpureus) that grows on rice yields a fermented product known as red yeast rice (RYR). RYR has a long history of use in Asia as a food, a flavoring/coloring agent, and a preservative. In Chinese medicine, RYR is also believed to support blood circulation. RYR also contains a class of active compounds called monacolins. By current count, there are more than ten different monacolins found in RYR and they all appear to have slightly different effects.

But one should keep in mind that RYR is not a drug and is neither just one monacolin, nor a collection of monacolins. Rather, RYR is a complex food substance that contains many bioactive components like sterols, isoflavones, and monounsaturated fatty acids. Other specific compounds found in RYR, such as monascin and ankaflavin, have recently been found to promote inflammatory health and even support beneficial HDL levels.* The benefits of RYR to cardiovascular health are more subtle than is often described.* Those interested in RYR should also be mindful that any product they take is monitored for citrinin content. Citrinin is a mycotoxin that targets the kidneys and is produced by numerous Penicillium and Aspergillus species. It can appear in RYR not grown under carefully controlled conditions.

CoQ10 Is Your Heart’s Friend

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is chemically related to vitamins E and K. It is called ubiquinone because it is widely distributed in nature. CoQ10 is synthesized in all cells for energy production, and serves as an antioxidant in membranes. Its role in energy production holds special importance for the heart. The heart and other active muscle tissues are spectacularly endowed with mitochondria (subcellular furnaces), where CoQ10 promotes fat and carbohydrate breakdown to produce more than 90% of our energy. CoQ10 facilitates electron transfer within mitochondrial membranes to produce ATP, the body’s energy currency.* Concern about CoQ10 levels is especially important in this day and age, because cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) work by inhibiting an enzyme that is also responsible for CoQ10 biosynthesis. As a result, anyone taking statins may have reduced levels of CoQ10. Jarrow Formulas actively contributes to research on CoQ10.

Jarrow Formulas provides Red Yeast Rice that is carefully fermented to avoid the presence of the natural byproduct citrinin. Coenzyme Q10 complements Red Yeast Rice in supporting healthy cardiovascular function.*

DHA is generally regarded as the brain-healthy omega-3 as it is selectively incorporated into the nerves, retina, and gray matter of the brain–all tissues responsible for nerve transmission.* In fact, DHA makes up about 40% of the PUFA in the brain and roughly 60% in the retina. It’s absolutely essential to developing brains and the primary reason fish oil is recommended during pregnancy.* Mechanistically, its effects result from a powerful impact on the fluidity and function of cell membranes.* DHA is also a precursor to neuroprotectin D1, which has broad protective activity in the brain.

In addition to critical brain functionality, DHA has been found to have effects throughout the body.* It’s now beginning to be understood that DHA plays complementary roles to EPA in the cardiovascular system.*

EPA: Not Just For The Heart*

EPA is generally classified as the heart-healthy omega-3* and there is an overwhelming amount of research to support the beneficial effects of EPA for cardiovascular health.* Other effects include balancing blood-lipids, supporting blood-vessel health, and promoting healthy blood pressure.

Yet similar to the situation with DHA, accumulating evidence suggests that EPA is more important than previously surmised for other bodily systems. In fact, recent research on mood and behavior has found that EPA may be more important than DHA mood modification.*

Jarrow Formulas Optimal Plant Proteins, Supports Gastroinestinal Health, 545 g

Product Profile

Optimal Plant Proteins provides five different sources of protein-rich, plant powders important for amino acid and fiber content as well as the presence of various nutrients. These nutrients vary by plant and provide one rationale for consuming protein from a breadth of sources. Included sources are pea, organic brown rice, organic hemp, Golden Chlorella – a highly digestible chlorella with superior taste profile – and chia. In addition, a unique blend of fermentation products from beneficial bacteria has been added.

View larger

View larger
Peas Protein

Peas are the seed-pods of Pisum sativum, a plant famed in scientific circles as Gregor Mendel’s, the father of genetics, vehicle to explaining the inheritance of traits. Yet peas, considered both a legume and a pulse, also deserve recognition for their high protein content. In fact, during the middle ages in Europe peas were one of the major sources of protein consumed. All pulses, however, are typically poor sources of the amino acid methionine and hence are not a complete protein. Legumes also possess noteworthy levels of amylose, a form of resistant starch that escapes human digestion but acts as food for beneficial bacteria.

Brown Rice Protein

Brown rice and white rice both derive from the same plant, Oryza sativa. Yet through no intrinsic fault, the brown variety was traditionally associated with poverty in Asia. However, modern revaluation of its attributes has led to an elevation in status. For example, despite comparable protein levels, brown rice contains B vitamins, iron, magnesium, fatty acids, and fiber that are lost to white rice. This is caused by the removal of the husk, bran and germ layers from the raw grain in the production of white rice. In contrast, only the husk is removed in brown rice. Nevertheless, like most grains, rice is a poor source of lysine and is not considered a complete protein alone.

Hemp Protein

Plants of the Cannabis genus may be controversial to modern society because of the psychoactive properties of some of its members, but the nutritive value of hemp seeds is unequivocal. Possessing a full-spectrum of amino acids, hemp protein exists in easily digestible, non-allergenic form. The hemp plant is also a source of essential fatty acids, with the omega-3/omega-6 ratio often coming in at 3:1.

Chlorella

Chlorella, a genus of single-celled algae, is a complete protein containing 45% amino acid components by dried weight. It burst into the consciousness of the American public decades ago when it was touted as a means to avoid impending world hunger. Unfortunately, chlorella’s photosynthesizing efficiency was overstated and the difficulty in “farming” it underestimated. Other factors, such as a somewhat objectionable taste and algae cell walls that impeded the protein bioavailability to humans, caused chlorella’s promise to fade. Some of these drawbacks have been overcome with Golden Chlorella, a more bioavailable, better-tasting form of chlorella protein.

Chia Seed

A staple food of the Aztecs, and even used by them as a form of currency, Salvia hispanica is native to what is now southern Mexico. By weight, chia seeds are about 1/3 omega-3 rich oil, 1/4 soluble fiber and 1/5 protein. Antioxidant components like flavonols, quercetin, and chlorogenic acids are also typically found in chia seeds. So even though the traditional practice of growing chia sprouts on clay figures has become widely known via “chia pets,” chia is certainly worth consuming.

What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?

Alpha lipoic acid (aka ALA, lipoate, thioctic acid) is utilized as an antioxidant and co-factor in glycolysis. Glycolysis is the initial process in most of the body’s pathways to breakdown glucose into useful forms of energy. Though critical to life, ALA is not a vitamin because it can be synthesized from essential fatty acids and the amino acid L-cysteine. However, no food is rich enough to serve as a good source.

Chemically, ALA has two juxtaposed sulfur atoms. When oxidized, the two sulfurs bond together (disulfide form). When reduced to dihydrolipoic acid, the active antioxidant form, each sulfur atom attaches to hydrogen (thiol form). ALA’s antioxidant chemistry is similar to glutathione, another sulfur-containing molecule and the most abundant antioxidant inside cells.

The Universal Antioxidant

ALA is reduced to its active form, dihydrolipoic acid, inside cells as the body needs it and is able to do so. The enzyme responsible for this, dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase (LipHD), preferentially reduces the R-enantiomer of lipoic acid; this is why the R form is often considered the only biologically relevant form. However this may not be entirely accurate. Like vitamin C, ALA functions in water-based phases such as blood. However, like vitamin E, it also protects fatty tissues and membranes. ALA quenches free radicals–like hydroxyl, singlet-oxygen, and peroxynitrite–in both water and lipid phases, and protects against lipid peroxidation. It deactivates an unusually wide array of cell-damaging free radicals in many bodily systems.*

Recycler Built for Two

ALA also enhances the potency of other antioxidants in both water-based (blood, cytosol) and lipid (membrane, blood lipid) compartments. It recycles vitamin C directly and vitamin E indirectly in a unique and significant capacity, often preventing the symptoms of deficiency of these two critical vitamins.*

Importantly, ALA increases glutathione levels in cells, in part by facilitating L-cysteine availability. It maintains the ratio of reduced-to-oxidized coenzyme Q10, which impacts mitochondrial health and energy production.*

Blood Sugar Metabolism and Muscular Energy

Perhaps the most significant function of ALA is its important role in energy production from carbohydrates, participating in the multi-enzyme process on many levels. ALA stimulates insulin activity and enhances glucose burning in overweight laboratory animals. Similarly, glucose utilization was supported in humans.* This also has implications for athletes and the overweight since muscle activity requires efficient sugar metabolism.

Alpha-lipoic acid is currently being studied for many age-related conditions, including heart and vascular health, sugar balance, neurological function, immune function, as well as fatigue and muscle strength. There is much protective promise in this powerful, broad-spectrum antioxidant.*

Special Delivery Requirements–Maximum Benefits

Jarrow Formulas Alpha Lipoic Sustain 300 is a bi-layer Quick Release/Sustained Release ALA formulation. It helps sustain blood levels while minimizing gastric irritation and blood sugar fluctuations.* One-third of the ALA releases rapidly and two-thirds releases slowly over time. This raises blood levels quickly while sustaining them.* ALA does not accumulate in tissues, so it has no known toxicity in suggested amounts. With wide distribution throughout the body, it is used in many ways. ALA finds particular utility in the eyes and brain, with neuroprotective and possibly cognitive-enhancing effects, especially in combination with acetyl-L-carnitine.* It also has potential to reduce mercury retention.*

Protection is highly dependent upon the usage regimen. ALA is rapidly cleared from blood by the liver, so it is best supplemented in multiple, divided servings. Clinical studies typically employ 300 mg taken twice daily. Alpha Lipoic Sustain 300 keeps ALA in circulation for much longer periods than the usual tablet or capsule delivery. Sustained release may also help avoid stomach irritation experienced by sensitive individuals.

The Importance of Biotin

Since biotin and ALA have similarities in structure and are transported by the same mechanism, elevated dietary ALA can interfere with biotin absorption and coenzyme functions. To protect against biotin deficiency, Alpha Lipoic Sustain 300 contains over 100 percent of the recommended daily allowance for biotin.

Note: If you have a medical condition (especially diabetes or being treated for glucose control), are pregnant, lactating, or trying to conceive, are under the age of 18, or are taking medications (especially for glucose control), consult your health care practitioner before using this product.

No serious side effects are associated with ALA. Very rare side effects include allergic skin reactions, and possible hypoglycemia in diabetics from improved glucose utilization.

Warning: Pregnant/lactating women and those with diabetes or using glucose control medication, should consult a health care professional before using this product.

Jarrow Formulas L-Arginine , Supports Cardiovascular Health, 1000 mg, 100 Tabs

View larger
Product Profile

First isolated from a lupine seedling and characterized in 1886, L-arginine is one of the twenty typical a-amino acids used as building blocks for protein. As such, it is present in a wide variety of foods of both plant and animal origin with particularly high levels found in eggs, almonds, spinach, and lobster. L-arginine is considered to be conditionally essential, meaning that for most adults adequate levels of arginine can be obtained from the diet or through biosynthesis/recycling. However during growth, and at other times when positive nitrogen balance is required, such as during healing, diet, and biosynthesis, may not meet arginine needs since the rate of biosynthesis does not compensate for depletion or inadequate supply. In addition, research evaluating the effects of arginine on the structure and function of the body often utilizes serving sizes in the multi-gram range, which may be difficult to achieve with food alone.

Distinguishing Features:

  • 1000 mg per tablet
  • Pharmaceutical grade L-Arginine
  • Easy-Solv tablets

Nitric Oxide

Aside from incorporation into proteins, one of the primary functions of L-arginine is as a precursor to nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) generates NO from L-arginine, producing citrulline as a byproduct. The recycling of citrulline back to L-arginine is possible via the citrulline-arginine pathway, but it is an energy intensive and inefficient process that the body does not rely on for its arginine needs.

NO is a critical mediator of vascular regulation, immune activity, and endocrine function. When it comes to the cardiovascular system, this gaseous messenger has a number of effects. It is necessary for endothelium-dependent vasodilation, allowing blood vessels to relax and widen. As such, the role of NO in maintaining healthy blood pressure has been studied in depth. In addition, NO also modulates platelet aggregation and the inflammatory response.

Creatine Connection, Immune Function, And Repair

Creatine helps to supply energy to all cells in the body, primarily muscle. However, it is not an essential nutrient because it can be produced in the body from L-arginine, glycine, and L-methionine. The first step of creatine biosynthesis is carried out by arginine:glycine amidinotransferase. Thus, the use of arginine as a precursor to creatine is part of the allure to athletes, but arginine administration has also been observed to stimulate the release of growth hormone.* The mechanism by which this could occur is unknown, but may be interwoven with the effect of arginine on creatine regulation.*

L-arginine has been found to affect levels of a number of immune modulators and cell adhesion molecules.* This coupled with effects on inflammatory balance and tissue generation make it understandable how arginine can be an important supporter of normal healing.* It appears that tissue injury, particularly of the skin, causes an increase in arginine oxidation and can deplete reserves.

Jarrow Formulas Glucosamine and Chondroitin and MSM, Supports Joint Health, 120 Caps

View larger
Supports Joint Health*

It is often suggested that there are three requirements to keep cartilage healthy: water for lubrication, proteoglycans to attract and hold the water, and collagen to keep the proteoglycans in place. Proteoglycans are large molecules made of protein and carbohydrates. They hold water like a sponge, helping to make cartilage resilient.

Distinguishing Features:

  • Sodium-free glucosamine sulfate
  • 1.5 g glucosamine sulfate and 1.2 g chondroitin sulfate per serving
  • Also contains vitamin C and manganese

Glucosamine And Chondroitin

Glucosamine is a major building block of the water-loving proteoglycans. Not surprisingly, the very presence of glucosamine stimulates the production of more proteoglycans. In fact, for many years glucosamine has been successfully used for supporting and promoting healthy joint cartilage maintenance.* This has been demonstrated by experimental as well as clinical studies, in which glucosamine led to functional joint improvement.* Several studies have shown that besides stimulating the production of cartilage, glucosamine may significantly help to maintain joint function.* Patients taking glucosamine for up to three years seem to have significantly less knee joint degeneration, less joint space narrowing, and increased levels of comfort when compared with placebo. In one study of 1,208 patients supplemented with glucosamine, 95% of the patients enjoyed a positive response. Glucosamine was even reported to have continued working six to 12 weeks after usage had stopped. Many clinical trials show that taking glucosamine supports functionality compared to placebo, but other trials do not find such conclusive results.*

Although usually studied independently, some reports have indicated that glucosamine and chondroitin work synergistically. Chondroitin is the perfect complement to glucosamine since chondroitin acts like a biological version of a “liquid magnet,” attracting fluid into proteoglycans. This fluid acts as a shock absorber and also brings nutrients with it into the cartilage. Perhaps of greater significance than its fluid-enhancing properties, chondroitin protects existing cartilage through its modulatory effects on enzymes that degrade cartilage.* Furthermore, like glucosamine, chondroitin stimulates the production of proteoglycans and collagen that are needed for healthy cartilage.* In one randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, the effectiveness of chondroitin was evaluated for promoting joint health in the knee. In this study, 300 human subjects were given either 1200 mg chondroitin or placebo once per day for two years. The group receiving the placebo had progressive joint space narrowing, while the those receiving chondroitin showed no change in mean joint space width.*

Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM)

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring, sulfur-containing compound that is present in body fluids and tissues and is found in milk, fruits, vegetables, and grains (in small amounts). Animal research has shown that joints with lower levels of cartilage also have low sulfur content. In one animal study, the effect of prolonged oral administration of MSM was examined in relation to joint health. It was found that MSM produced positive effects on joint health. *

In a preliminary double-blind trial in human subjects with suboptimal joint function, daily supplementation with MSM promoted joint comfort after six weeks.* In a separate placebo-controlled trial, researchers studied 50 men and women who also had suboptimal joint function. These men and women were given MSM daily or a placebo for 12 weeks. The MSM group fared much better in the areas of comfort and physical function compared to the placebo group.*
