Supplements for Digestive Problems & Much More

We’re directly across the street from the big Los Altos Whole Foods market, and we’re no more than a hundred yards from a very busy Trader Joe’s. Less than a block away, there’s a Safeway and a Sprout’s natural foods market.

So why are we selling our own line of supplements?

Quite simply because you won’t find these products at your local retailers, and they’re the best of the best – they’re products that we’ve tested, and that we use regularly and swear by.

You can stop by the office and pick up these products, or you can have them shipped USPS. To order, give us a call at (650) 917-1121. Or for more information, you can call or send us a message via the Contact Form.

Nanogreens. One serving of this powerful vegetable powder supplement will give you the antioxidant potency of 55 ingredients from 10 servings of vegetables. Nanogreens is a powerhouse of nutrition and wellness in an easy-to-take form. Put a dose in a delicious strawberry shake to ensure that your body gets the nutrients it needs to function properly. Our Price: $50.

Nanolean. We (Dr. Connie and Dr. Marcel) take two servings of this remarkable supplement every working at the office. It’s a wonderful pick-up when you feel that familiar mid-day “crash” coming on. Nanolean is a light, refreshing, healthy beverage that helps you feel full and curb food cravings, while increasing your metabolism and giving you the energy and focus you need to control stress. Taken twice a day, it’s been clinically proven to reduce body fat. The makers describe Nanolean as a “secret weapon” to accompany any weight loss or maintenance plan. Our Price: $40.

Liposomal Glutathione. Glutathione is a protein that occurs naturally in every body cell. It neutralizes and removes toxins, enhances immune function, and protects the cells from the free radicals that cause oxidative damage. For more information about Liposomal Glutathione, you can browse a summary of the research HEREOur Price: $60. (Note that we also offer glutathione in intravenous form for specific health conditions. Visit the Pacific Naturopathic Intravenous Therapies site for more information.)

Powerful Plant-based Enzymes. At a recent research conference we found a line of enzymes that truly impressed us. Here are some of the powerful, plant-based, vegan products that we brought back to offer our clients:

Critical Digestion. This is a high-potency formula comprised of plant-based digestive enzymes, probiotics, and nutraceuticals. Critical Digestion offers substantial support for a healthy intestinal environment. It contains one billion active probiotic cultures per capsule, to soothe occasional indigestion, gas, and bloating. Price: $22.

Acid Calm. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have estimated that approximately 60 million Americans experience a burning sensation in the chest or an acid taste in the throat at least once a month. Heartburn is a digestive occurs when stomach acid comes in contact with the lining of the esophagus, causing that familiar burning sensation. Most people suffer from heartburn only occasionally, generally after a poorly digested meal. But occasional heartburn can also be a symptom of impaired digestion due to a variety of factors, including lifestyle, diet, and genetics. Price: $25.

Intolerance Complex. Food intolerances are generally caused by a deficiency of food-specific digestive enzymes. Adverse food reactions are widespread – lactose intolerance alone affects 30-50 million Americans. And up to 15 percent of the world’s population suffer from gluten intolerance. Other poorly tolerated foods include dairy protein (casein), lactose, whey, and fibrous beans, vegetables, and grains. Intolerance Complex product contains high-potency enzymes to help digest food compounds that are known to cause intestinal disturbances. Price: $20.

Myomend. When you go to the doctor with a muscle injury, one of the most common recommendations you’ll receive is the RICE protocol: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. The doctor may also prescribe anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen, etc.). That’s because RICE alone can’t address the body’s inflammatory response to injury. When a body part is injured, the inflammatory response increases the temperature around the injured area and ramps up its natural enzyme activity. The body manufactures proteolytic enzymes to break down and remove proteins that are dead, damaged, or unneeded. Myomend helps reduce swelling and speed healing. Price: $36.50.

Enzyme Defense Pro. Enzyme Defense Pro contains a high-potency proteolytic enzyme blend with added vitamin D3, L‑lysine, and minerals to support healthy immune function.  Enzymes are highly involved in regulating the body’s digestive and metabolic processes, making them essential for healthy cellular function and overall wellness. In particular, proteolytic enzymes (also called proteases) support digestion and metabolism by helping the body break down proteins. Supplementing with proteolytic enzymes has been shown to support immunity and general well-being. Price: $45.

Bulletproof Coffee. Drs. Connie and Marcel drink Bulletproof Coffee every morning to kick-start their brains. The proprietary Bulletproof Process optimizes every step of coffee production by minimizing the opportunity for performance-robbing mold toxins to grow in our morning brew. Ingesting mold toxins can seriously contribute to chronic health issues. Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee Beans are grown at high altitude on single estates in Guatemala. The beans are hand-harvested and carefully processed and roasted to maintain their maximum integrity and flavor. The final roast undergoes proprietary lab testing to verify that it meets Bulletproof’s very high quality and purity standards. Price: $18.95 per 12 oz.

Brain Octane. Jump-start your day by blending Upgraded Coffee with Bulletproof Brain Octane. Add grass-fed, unsalted butter to energize your mind and body for hours. You’ll feel the Bulletproof difference with your first cup. Price: $23.50/16 oz.

It can boost mental clarity, reduce inflammation, and upgrade your skin quality. Mixes easily with other foods and shakes, thanks to its neutral taste. Price: $39.95.
