  1. Vitamin D Complex 60 capsules

    Vitamin D Complex 60 capsules

    Price: $29.00

    Vitamin D Complex features 2000 IUs of vitamin D, along with efficacious amounts of the other fat-soluble vitamins, A, E (tocopherols and tocotrienols), and K (K1 and K2). While there are a myriad of beneficial health attributes associated with vitamin D, it is extremely important it is to keep it in balance with these other vitamins. Research is emerging on the intricate interrelationships between them, which should make one think twice about dosing any of these supraphysiologically without the others. Learn More

Pea protein is a true vegan protein which has excellent digestibility (98%) and is hypoallergenic.

    Additional Highlights of
    VegeMeal™
    • NatureFolate™ – natural vitamin folates that are found in foods such as spinach and are immediately “active” and bioavailable to the human body.
    • Creatine MagnaPower® for energy reserves – stabilized creatine plays an important role in the maintenance and regeneration of ATP, and helps to increase muscle mass, strength and endurance.Vegetarians appear to have lower tissue creatine concentrations, since creatine is mostly found in animal foods such as herring, pork, beef, salmon and tuna.
    • VegeMeal™ contains no sucrose, fructose, or artificial sweeteners, and is naturally sweetened with the herb stevia.

  4. Magnesium Malate 120 capsules

    Magnesium Malate 120 capsules

    Price: $20.00

    Magnesium Malate contains chelated di-magnesium malate, which is magnesium bound to malic acid. Magnesium is one of the most critical minerals in the human body, and is involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions. Malic acid is a compound found naturally in apples and other fruits and vegetable and is included because of its role in the Krebs cycle, which may help support energy production. True chelates, such as the di-magnesium malate found in this product, allow for greater absorption and tolerability than non-bound mineral salts and are retained better in body tissue such as bone. Made with non-GMO ingredients. Learn More
  5. L-5-MTHF, 120 capsules

    L-5-MTHF, 120 capsules

    Price: $37.00

    High dose, 1000 mcg methylated folate, as the all natural 6S isomer

    L-5-MTHF is a safe and effective way to increase the body’s folate levels. It is especially helpful for patients with demonstrated increased need for folate such as those with either the A1298C or C677T MTHFR mutation. This product provides 1000 mcg per capsule of folate in the bioidentical, bioactive form, 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate. L-5-MTHF (the "L" signifying that it is the all-natural [6S] isomer) is the active circulating form of folate found in the body and one of the several forms found in food. In nature it is found only as this [6S] isomer, which is why DFH provides 5-MTHF as this natural isomer rather than the mixed (or racemic) form. Our L-5-MTHF uses the patented folate derivative Quatrefolic®. This innovative form of folate has demonstrated high bioavailability and solubility as well as long lasting stability. Quatrefolic® L-5-MTHF helps to increase blood folate levels much better than folic acid.

    L-5-MTHF should be used when high doses of folate are needed.

    Individuals who have tested homozygous with either the A1298C or C677T MTHFR mutation, or those with elevated homocysteine levels, should be using L-5-MTHF as the preferred form of folate supplementation. This will be more effective for them than other forms of folic acid or folates.

    Others who may benefit from L-5-MTHF:
    Pregnant women and women wishing to become pregnant who have familial history of depression, high homocysteine levels, or genetic defect in MTHFR. Note: All pregnant women should take Prenatal Pro™ as their comprehensive multivitamin; can combine with L-5-MTHF if higher levels of folate are needed.

    • Women with abnormal pap smears (precancerous)
    • Those with very high homocysteine levels not responding quickly to Homocysteine Supreme™(consider using them together)
    • Dialysis patients
    • Organic acid testing that reveals elevated FIGLU (marker used to identify folate deficiency)
    • Patients with family history of dementia/vascular dementia
    • Patients with depression
    • Long-term alcoholism

    Long-term use of oral contraceptives, and persistent use of medications to lower folate levels, including high doses of NSAIDs such as aspirin or ibuprofen; anticonvulsants (phenytoin, phenobarbital, and primidone); trimethoprim (antibiotic), pyrimethamine (antimalarial), triamterene (blood pressure med.) and sulfasalazine (treatment for ulcerative colitis).

    Do not take 5-MTHF simultaneously with the cholesterol-lowering agents cholestyramine or colestipol because they may decrease the absorption of folate.
