INGREDIENT BENEFITS

N-Acetyl Cysteine

N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a powerful amino acid that dissolves mucus by breaking up disulfide bonds which make up the protein network that contributes to mucus density. This results in improved drainage out of the sinus cavity. In a double-blind study examining 12 healthy volunteers with slow mucociliary clearance, NAC administration for 60 days resulted in a 35% increase in mucociliary clearance rate in treated subjects, compared to no improvement in the placebo group. Additional studies have also demonstrated an improvement in mucus clearance following NAC administration.

Turmeric Root Extract

Curcumin is a yellow-colored plant pigment found in the spice, turmeric. Sinatrol contains turmeric which is standardized to contain 95% curcumin. Research shows that curcumin affects numerous molecules that support healthy inflammatory response.

Bromelain

Bromelain is a plant enzyme that is naturally found in the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant. Bromelain exerts a synergistic effect when combined with NAC due to its proteolytic (protein-digesting) effects. Bromelain has been shown to be effective at thinning nasal secretions and provides an additional benefit of balancing inflammatory response.

Berberine Sulfate Hydrate

Berberine sulfate is a botanical extract found in the roots and barks of various plants including Oregon grape root, barberry and goldenseal. Berberine extract has been shown to support immune response by increasing blood flow to the spleen and by activating immune compounds such as macrophages. Berberine maintains healthy sinus function by quieting localized inflammatory response- Berberine has been shown to inhibit activator protein 1 (AP-1) and inhibits thromboxane A2 from platelets.

Licorice Root Extract

Licorice root has been used in Western and Eastern cultures for thousands of years. Licorice’s health-promoting benefits include soothing respiratory irritation.  The active components in licorice, glycyrrhizin and glycyrrhetinic acid, strengthen immune response by inducing interferon activity, activating macrophages and augmenting natural killer cell activity. Glycyrrhizin exerts its inflammatory balancing response by inhibiting the production of reacted oxygen species released by neutrophils.

Andrographis

Andrographis paniculata is a plant that has been used in Asian medicine for centuries. The immune boosting properties of andrographis have been research extensively in clinical studies- Per the analysis of seven double-blind controlled trials, andrographis has been shown to be a safe botanical for supporting upper respiratory tract health.

Eleuthero

Recent studies utilizing the combination of Eleuthero and Andrographis have demonstrated the combination of herbs to be particularly helpful for patients with upper respiratory challenges.

Thyme

Thyme has been traditionally used to help soothe sinuses and loosen phlegm.  Thymol, the active ingredient in thyme, also has immune supporting properties and competes with pathogens commonly found throughout the sinuses and respiratory tract. The German Commission E has approved thyme to help support respiratory challenges.

Product Description

Supplementing vitamin D3 and K2 can help promote bone health and maintain health cardiometabolic function. Ortho Molecular Products is the exclusive provider of MenaQ7® PRO, the most widely studied form of vitamin K2 as MK-7.

OVERVIEW

New research is focusing on the synergistic relationship between vitamin K2 and vitamin D3, for bone and cardiovascular health. A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is essential for the proper utilization of calcium. Through its activation of the protein osteocalcin, vitamin K helps to bind newly absorbed calcium to the mineral matrix in bone. In addition, vitamin K has been found to help maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, a cell that breaks down the bone matrix. Vitamin K also provides critical cardiovascular protection by helping to activate matrix Gla protein (MGP), an inhibitor of circulatory calcification. Thus, vitamin K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities, but they also act synergistically within the body.

The addition of MenaQ7® PRO to this formula is backed by extensive research. Dr. Leon Schurgers, world-renowned expert in vitamin K2 as MK-7 research for cardiovascular and bone health, and his team of research scientists have conducted over 15 clinical trials on MenaQ7® PRO through the University of Maastricht.

Vitamin K2 with D3 includes 45 mcg of MenaQ7® PRO, the most widely studied form of vitamin K2 as MK-7, and 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 per capsule for optimal absorption and use by the body.

Suggested Use:

1 or more capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional
