I’m so proud of the combination of nutrients in this product for breast nutrient support. I have been asked for years about the supplements I take to support healthy breast tissue. When I tell people all the supplements I take, their eyes just glaze over; the idea of going out and purchasing that many products, opening all those bottles, and then taking them twice a day, was just too overwhelming.
I completely understand!
But I know the importance of nutrition in keeping the breast and body protected. Good nutrition and healthy habits are what prevention is all about.
No more lining your counters with a ton of different bottles. YAY!
Anyone can take this product alone, or it can be taken with any other of your supplements.
What’s In These Packages??
To begin with, it’s good to always start with basic nutritional support. We started with Vita Prime- more potent than the common over-the-counter multivitamins. It is ideal for ensuring daily essential micro-nutrient needs. I started with a strong base and built from there.
The other ingredients are:
- Turmeric Phytosome 250
- Chlorella Plus
- Quercetin with Beta Glucan
- Indoles Forte with DIM
- D3 1000
- Calcium D-Glucarate
Turmeric Phytosome 250
Turmeric root has a long history of use to promote physiological balance in tissues affected by inflammation. Many of the beneficial actions of turmeric are purported to be due to antioxidant and regulatory mechanisms exerted by its component curcumin. Unfortunately, oral absorption of curcumin is generally poor due to its low solubility and instability in the intestinal environment. Efforts to improve the bioavailability of curcumin have led to the development of Meriva® brand turmeric, a proprietary turmeric-phospholipid complex that enhances oral absorption of curcumin over 20-fold compared to standard turmeric extracts. This product provides Meriva® brand turneric to enhance oral absorbtion of curcumin, thus helping to maximize turmeric’s powerful protective benifits on tissue throughout the body.
Chlorella Plus – Helps enhance both the intestinal and liver detoxification process.
Chlorella Plus combines Chlorella, a algal organism rich in nutrients and phytochemical compounds, with several other ingredients that work together to help enhance the body’s natural detoxification processes. Optimal functioning detoxification processes are a vital component of minimizing the impact toxic substances have on our well-being. The body’s ability to manage both internally-produced toxins and external toxins that may gain entry into the body is critical to staying healthy. Chlorella contains concentrated amounts of the green pigment chlorophyll. Studies show that chlorophyll in Chlorella form tight complexes with a wide variety of toxins, thus reducing their potential of absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. For additional detoxification support, Chlorella Plus also provides broccoli extract for its ability to enhance liver detoxification processes.
Quercetin with Beta Glucan- Supports immune system responsiveness.
The ability of the immune system to recognize friend from foe and respond with an appropriate and effective defense is critical to optimal health. The body’s inflammatory response and antioxidant defense mechanisms are also vital to wellness and a healthy immune system. Inflammation is a complex defense and repair mechanism that is activated in response to challenge by infectious or allergenic agents, injury, disease, and even aging. However, if inflammation is not properly regulated, it can produce damage to tissues and slow down the body’s normal healing and repair processes. Environmental and metabolic stressors can also generate potentially damaging free radicals that can overwhelm the body’s antioxidant defenses. The synergistic effects of beta-glucan and quercetin provides a natural approach to support immune system function by boosting antioxidant activity, favorably modulating inflammatory responses, and enhancing immune responsiveness.
Quercetin, a beneficial plant compound, has potent antioxidant activity and helps stabilize cell membranes, which protects cells and tissues against the damaging effects of free radicals and excessive inflammation. It has also been shown to support histamine metabolism and modulate the activity and production of certain inflammation-promoting compounds. Beta-glucan, a soluble dietary fiber, helps regulate a balance between TH1 and Th2 immune responses that help protect the body when exposed to potentially harmful pathogens and promote immune tolerance to dietary and environmental allergens. Beta-glucan supports immune function through the enhancement of beneficial immune cells such as monocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells. Remember the old saying: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Apples are a good source of quercetin.
Indoles Forte with DIM - Broad-spectrum dietary indoles
Indole compounds are a distinct group of phytonutrients found in criciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. This product supplies indole-3-carbinol (I3C), DIM, and other naturally occurring dietary indole compounds shown to help protect hormone sensitive tissues against the potentially harmful effects of undesirable forms of estrogen and other toxins. Indole compounds can help shift estrogen balance to a favorable ratio of the cell protective form (called 2-hydroxyestrone) compared to other less desirable breakdown products that may damage tissues. Dietary indoles also inhibit DNA damage that can initiate abnormal cell growth, stimulate liver enzymes that detoxify foreign compounds, and regulate the life cycle of cells. These important phytonutrients help promote healthy hormone balance and cell function.
High-potency, D-3 1,000 I.U
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 inhibit 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 I.U. 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.
Calcium D-Glucarate -Helps to detoxify Hormones and Toxins
D-Glucarate, a natural compound found in fruits and vegetables, supports Phase II glucuronidation, a primary detoxification pathway that deactivates toxic compounds and promotes their elimination from the body. Studies show that D-glucarate works by inhibiting the beta-glucuronidase enzyme that can otherwise disrupt the glucuronidation process and thus interfere with safe removal of carcinogens and steroid hormones such as estrogen. Because beta-glucouronidase enzymes are active throughout the body, especially in the liver, colon, lungs, skin, bladder, breast, and prostate, D-glucarate plays a vital protective role for the immune system. This Calcium D-Glucarate contains the patented form of D-Glucarate developed for use in dietary supplements.
Which package should I get?
I recommend the Maintenance Pack for under 30 years old, and the Super Pack for over 30 years old or individuals with dense breast tissue.
