Omega-3 information:
Research on fish oil has demonstrated its role in supporting cardiovascular health.* Quite often, individuals desiring fish oil supplementation for cardiovascular support can benefit from the antioxidant and energy-promoting activity of coenzyme Q10.* Thorne Research's Omega-3 w/CoQ10 combines a high quality fish oil concentrate with 30 mg CoQ10 in each gelcap. At the typical dosage range of 2-6 gelcaps daily, that's 60-180 mg of CoQ10 daily. In the current debate over CoQ10 absorption, it appears CoQ10 is best absorbed when delivered in an oil medium.* Therefore, combining CoQ10 with fish oil provides the benefits of both substances while enhancing the absorption of CoQ10.* Recent technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules.* As always, Thorne Research provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

Meriva-500 Information:

Product Information
Meriva-500 is a unique, patented curcumin product. People throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin for centuries. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry), and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits, including supporting joint health and hepatic, GI, and cardiovascular function, by helping to maintain the body's normal inflammatory response.*

Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. In conjunction with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, we have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption phytosome technology. Meriva curcumin phytosome is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts.*

Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of human cells. Our bodies can make PC, but we can also get it from food or supplements. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. The scientists at Indena found a way to attach a curcumin extract to PC for superior absorption, resulting in Meriva. When you take Meriva your body absorbs the PC and the attached curcumin, resulting in more curcumin reaching the cells that can benefit from it.*

A 2007 single-dose pharmacokinetic animal study demonstrated Meriva's superior bioavailability, compared to ordinary curcumin.* The results demonstrated a >20-fold increase in absorption of curcumin from Meriva versus a standard curcumin preparation.* In addition, a 2010 three-month clinical trial demonstrated 1,000 mg of Meriva-SR per day helped maintain healthy C-reactive protein levels and promoted healthy joint comfort and mobility.* Furthermore, a 2010 randomized, single-blind, crossover human study revealed total curcuminoid bioavailability, as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC), to be 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional standardized curcumin extract.*

Several studies have illustrated curcumin's hepatoprotective effects, leading researchers to suggest its use in protecting the liver from exogenous insults from environmental toxins.* Curcumin also has the capacity to increase both the flow and solubility of bile.* Curcumin's hepatoprotective effects are due in part to direct free-radical scavenging; but curcumin also enhances the body's natural antioxidant system, which increases glutathione levels, thereby aiding in hepatic detoxification and inhibiting nitrosamine formation.*

Ingredients
Two Capsules Contain:
Curcumin Phytosome* (Curcuma longa extract (root) / Phosphatidylcholine complex) 1 g
Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, CalciumCitrateLaurate, Silicon Dioxide, Microcrystalline Cellulose.

INTERACTIONS
Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research revealed that curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.


Vitamin C with Flavonoids information:

Product Information
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is one of the most well known nutrients worldwide. Such recognition is deserved, considering its role in nutritional biochemistry. Not only is vitamin C a key antioxidant, protecting cells throughout the body from free radical damage, this water-soluble vitamin serves as a cofactor in the synthesis of important neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and norepinephrine, and plays an integral role in the production of cellular energy.* Vitamin C is essential for proper metabolism of carbohydrates and synthesis of fats and proteins.* It helps break down cholesterol and also helps maintain healthy immune function.* Vitamin C promotes wound healing because it is a cofactor for the synthesis of collagen and other connective tissue components.*

The term ascorbic acid refers to vitamin C in its purest form, not bound to any other compound. Thorne's Vitamin C with Flavonoids contains ascorbic acid and citrus flavonoids (a mixture of naturally-occurring flavonoids, including rutin, hesperidin, and quercetin), and is 100 percent pure. Unlike many vitamin C supplements from other companies, Thorne's vitamin C supplements contain no corn starch. Although it is not true that ascorbic acid will not work in the body without flavonoids, vitamin C does work better when accompanied by flavonoid molecules, as their presence in cells spares vitamin C and provides greater antioxidant activity.*

Vitamin C is an essential, water-soluble antioxidant for collagen stabilization.* A deficiency can result in poor collagen cross-linkage and weaker connective tissue.* Bioflavonoids have some of the same mechanisms of action, potentiating the effect of ascorbic acid.*

In addition to immune support, connective tissue support, and its role in cellular energy production, antioxidant activity is one of the primary reasons for vitamin C supplementation.* In addition to strong antioxidant activity, flavonoids support other key functions in the body.* Factors dictating higher vitamin C include smoking, alcohol ingestion, stress, diabetes, pregnancy, environmental toxicity, and the use of certain drugs.*

Ingredients
One Capsule Contains:
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) 500 mg.
Citrus Bioflavonoids 75 mg.
Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Silicon Dioxide.

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.

Quercenase™ information:

Product Information
Quercenase is a combination of water-soluble quercetin* and bromelain. Bromelain is a compound of proteolytic enzymes derived from the pineapple plant. Bromelain has protein-digesting and immune-enhancing properties.* Bromelain also contains constituents that help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response, and may help the absorption of soluble quercetin.*

Quercetin appears to have many beneficial effects on human health, including cardiovascular protection, as well as protection of the gastrointestinal tract.* A number of quercetin's effects appear to be due to its antioxidant activity.* Quercetin scavenges free radicals and inhibits oxidation of LDL cholesterol.* By itself, and paired with vitamin C, quercetin can reduce the incidence of oxidative damage to skin and nerves caused by glutathione depletion.* Quercetin also stabilizes mast cells that store and release histamine.*

The flavonoid quercetin is ubiquitous in the plant community. It consists of a three-ringed structure with an oxygen molecule at the top of the middle flavonoid ring. It contains five hydroxyl (OH) groups, which gives it potent antioxidant activity.* However, regular quercetin is not water soluble and is poorly absorbed from an oral dose. Thorne Research's water-soluble quercetin is more bioavailable than regular quercetin.

Ingredients
One Capsule Contains:
Quercetin (water-soluble) 250 mg.
Bromelain* 100 mg.

Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Silicon Dioxide.

*Bromelain is derived from the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus). This product is not diluted with lactose.

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule three times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
