Berberine Prevents Metabolic Syndrome

Ref. #TTN142
With 1 in 3 Americans dealing with metabolic syndrome –a combination of conditions that can include type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, cholesterol imbalance, and high triglyceride levels— it’s clear the U.S. needs berberine.

The Power of CoQ10: Fuel for Your Cellular Engines

Ref. #0200

CoQ10 helps spark the process of moving the electrons in the mitochondria to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the natural “gasoline” or “battery” that powers our body at a microscopic level. Of all the cells in the body, the heart contains the most mitochondria, but the brain needs impressive amounts of CoQ10, too.
