Vitamin D3 - 1,000 I.U. by Prothera - 100 Capsules Green Tea Extract by Prothera - 60 Capsules
Vitamin D is inadequate in many individuals and daily need appears to be higher than previously thought. Vitamin D’s role in calcium metabolism and bone health is well known. However, it has many other important physiologic roles that are not as well appreciated. Vitamin D receptors are widely distributed in the body, including colon, prostate, breast and ovary, where it acts to inhibits the excessive growth of body cells and tissues and helps cells mature normally. Adequate amounts of vitamin D, an essential, fat-soluble vitamin, come from consistent exposure to sunshine and are difficult to obtain from dietary sources. Postmenopausal women, older individuals, and those with malabsorption, limited sun exposure, or certain illnesses may need higher intakes of vitamin D. Vitamin D3, the naturally occurring form, is supplied in high-potency amount of 1,000 IU per capsule for those needing to conveniently augment dietary intake. A daily vitamin D3 intake of 1,000 to 2,000 units, an amount shown to be safe and effective by clinical studies, is now advised by many experts. Contains significantly higher amounts of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the most active catechin (polyphenol), compared to most green tea extracts. Catechin polyphenols and other compounds in green tea act in synergy to promote fat oxidation and thermogenesis.
TheraSlim by Prothera - 90 Capsules
Carbohydrates are often maligned for those trying to lose weight. Yet, avoiding starchy foods is very difficult for many individuals. Complex carbohydrates are an important nutritional component of a healthy diet that adds dietary fiber, B vitamins, and trace elements. Diets too low in carbohydrates can depress serotonin levels and mood. Too often, people resort to fatty or sugary foods to feel satiated. With TheraSlim™, individuals can eat bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, and other complex carbohydrates as part of a balanced diet, yet limit their caloric contribution. TheraSlim™ contains Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer®, a natural, non-stimulant adjunct from the white kidney bean, Phaseolus vulgaris L., that may reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches. Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer® is supported by a substantial body of competent and reliable scientific evidence, including 14 clinical investigations. Two capsules of TheraSlim™ at least twice a day, taken with starchy meals or a snack, may assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program.
