Really Healthy

Supplements Produced by The Really Healthy Company

Practically all food supplement manufacturers work primarily from a cost-perspective. So ingredients are chosen that are cost effective and fillers/excipients are used to fill out the tablet or capsule. This is a business approach to natural health and it does produce some acceptable supplements.

We at The Really Healthy Company, on the other hand, are totally into health ourselves and the financial perspective is always secondary in the production of our supplements. When we put together a formula, we use the expertise of our practitioners along with an ethos of using the highest quality ingredients and seeing how much we can fit in. The result is that in many of our ranges we avoid fillers and excipients altogether! That is how we product 100% Active Ingredient TM supplements such as our superlative Alpha range which is unique to us.

So if you are into optimum health, get your supplements from health fanatics rather than business men and women. That way, your health is never financially compromised!

AlphaCurcumin Plus: Super-Bioavailable Longvida Curcumin

It’s back, and this time our free-radical “Terminator” is even more efficient.AlphaCurcumin® Plus is a leading curcumin extract, far more potent than standard curcumin supplements. It has now been relaunched using a proprietary curcumin extract significantly more effective than even the phytosomal curcumin in our previous batch.The best has just got better!*     *     *Turmeric is ground from the root of the Curcuma Longa L. plant (see picture below), a member of the ginger family, which grows wild in the Himalayas and across South Asia. This yellow/orange spice plays a central role in the cuisine in those areas, giving the traditional dishes of these regions their characteristic yellow colour. This spice has been a component of the Ayurvedic Medicinal Systems of India, China, Tibet and the Middle East for over 2000 years, and recently has come under intense scrutiny by medical researchers astonished by the healing properties of some of its constituent compounds.Curcumin is the primary curcuminoid class found in turmeric and gives it its characteristic orange-yellow colour. Only around 2-6% of raw turmeric contains these curcuminoids which are concentrated in the rhizome, with the three primary ones being curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bis-demethoxycurcumin. These polyphenolic compounds (especially the curcumin)have powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory (through the down-regulation of NF-kB and COX-2) and anti-pathogenic properties, which give turmeric its health-giving properties. These protective compounds are so effective that they are currently the focus of a huge amount of scientific research.The main problem with curcumin is that it has very poor oral absorption due to its low water solubility and sensitivity to stomach acids. And the tiny amount that is absorbed is quickly metabolised in a process called glucuronidation which makes it water-soluble and therefore easily for the body to eliminate through the kidneys and bile. As a result, the full benefits of curcumin are not realised — too little is absorbed and it stays in the body too short a time.A solution to this problem has been found by finely mixing the curcumin with lipids, as curcumin is fat-soluble. This vastly increases absorption by having the lipids carry the curcumin into the body, increasing bioavailability. There are several such methods and technologies, and they vary considerably in their effectiveness.In the last two generations of our superlative AlphaCurcumin(R) complex, we were using such methods to ensure that our customers always had access to the most bioavailable curcumin. The first generation used a powerful curcumin extract mixed with curcuminoid oils that claimed an increased absorption of 7x or 700%. The second used a proprietary phytosomal phospholipid-curcumin complex with claims of increased absorption by 29x (2900%) or more. We thought this was the ultimate at the time, and then we found Longvida® Optimized Curcumin that blew everything else out of the water. Not only does it have even higher absorption including to the brain, it also stays in the system longer whilst effectively distributing its potency throughout the body.When we discovered this new turmeric extract, we just knew we had to update our formula so that AlphaCurcumin Plus could remain the best of the best.*     *     *In our new launch AlphaCurcumin® upgrade, we have swapped out the 2nd generation phytosomal curcumin with a new cutting-edge extract that is significantly more effective — Longvida® Optimized Curcumin.What is so special about Longvida® Optimized Curcumin?Normal curcumin extracts rapidly degrade in the stomach and intestines in processes called glucuronidation, a process which makes the curcumin inactive and easier for the body to eliminate through the kidneys and bile. This means that even the highest quality curcumin extracts are inefficiently absorbed into the body and rapidly eliminated — on average half of what is absorbed is gone within 2 or 3 hours. This means less protection over less time.Longvida® Optimized Curcumin was developed by neuroscientists at UCLA using a patented* delivery technology called Solid Lipid Curcumin Particle (SLCP) Technology. SLCP™ Technology gently coats the curcumin with a specific combination of lipids to form nano-scale lipid capsules or micelles. These micelles are like tiny solid diving bells that protects the curcumin in its journey into our bodies, allowing it to efficiently pass through cell barriers, including the blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers, bringing the benefits of curcumin throughout the body. (In fact, this curcumin was specifically developed by the neuroscientists to bring the full benefits of curcumin to the brain.)This unique structure of the SLCP curcumin means that it is transported through the lymph and not the blood, allowing it to largely bypass liver metabolism and stay in its free unglucuronidated form (unlike its inactive metabolised form). This ability for Longvida® curcumin to stay in the body has been measured at 2.5 to 3.75 times longer than standard curcumin. In other words, Longvida® curcumin is stronger for longer, but also in more places such as the brain.The SLCP Technology used for this product means that the curcumin stays in its active (unglucuronidated) free-form and this is especially important because it is this lipophilic “free curcumin” that has the ability to pass through the blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers, bringing the benefits of curcumin to where it is often needed the most. But once the curcumin is metabolised or glucuronidated, that ability is unfortunately lost. So other curcumin brands that do not use SLCP Technology to protect the curcumin, even the phytosomal phospholipid ones, tend to have much higher glucuronidation and a much lower percentage of actual free curcumin, which means that what is absorbed is less active and is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier.The result is a curcumin extract MANY TIMES more effective than other curcumin brands: 95x more bioavailable than standard 95% curcumin extract using AUC testing method; 67x more bioavailable than the standard using Cmax testing; and 285x more bioavailable than the standard using AUC normalized testing.So it is not just absorption that is important, but how much actual "free" curcumin ends up in the body. So brands may claim high absorption, but if they do not deliver free curcumin but some other form such as phospholipid curcumin, they are not as beneficial.At The Really Healthy Company, we go even further. We add enzymes, quercetin and algae in order to enhance further the anti-inflammatory benefits of this curcumin. And we do so without using unnecessary excipients and fillers. The result is a supplement that is superior to those that contain curcumin alone.So if you want the optimum benefits of curcumin, AlphaCurcumin® is the one to go for. Nothing else comes close.*     *     *The Really Healthy Company's AlphaCurcumin® Plus brings 250mg of this highly bioavailable Longvida optimised curcumin together with 75mg of Bromelain, 50mg of Quercetin, and a specific blend of enzymes and algae in each vegetarian capsule, further enhancing the curcumin's already magnified beneficial effects. The result is one of the most potent curcumin supplements on the market today.AlphaCurcumin also contains no added binders, fillers or any other excipients — just the full power of undiluted, leading-edge, natural ingredients.Ingredients: Longvida® Optimized Curcumin, Vegetable Cellulose (capsule), AlphaBlend (enzyme and algae mix), Quercetin and Bromelain.Directions: Take 2 capsules a day, preferably at mealtimes, or as directed by your health practitioner.

AlphaGuard Plus: Superlative Antioxidant Complex

AlphaGuard® Plus antioxidant complex is superior to most other full-spectrum antioxidant food supplements on the market.Burning calories is a natural process of oxidation that releases energy in our bodies. However, oxidation can be destructive when it is excessive and uncontrolled, which can happen with stress (physical and mental), poor diet, toxins and environmental pollutants, too much sun, radiation and illness. When this happens, our cells can become damaged by reactive molecules called free radicals and our energy and vitality deteriorates. Long-term, this can lead to premature ageing and degenerative conditions.Whilst the body produces some of its own antioxidants, the rest must be obtained through the diet, primarily from fruits and vegetables (especially their skins and pips). However, we live in a world where oxidative stress on our bodies is increasing due to rising pollution and stress loads, whilst dietary levels of antioxidants are decreasing, due to poor diets and the fact that our food is often grown in nutrient-depleted soils. The result can be compromised health.AlphaGuard® Plus is one of the very best all-in-one antioxidant supplements on the market today, combining many of the most effective antioxidant nutrients and complexes, including Vitamin C, Grape Seed Extract, Curcumin Extract, Quercetin, Bilberry Extract, Vitamin E, Alpha lipoic acid, Green tea extract, N-Acetyl cysteine, Zinc, Leutein, Beta-carotene, Lycopene, Zeaxanthin and Selenium. The reason we put such a potent variety of antioxidants into our supplement is that antioxidants work synergistically in the body — their combined benefit far exceeding the benefit we would obtain from taking them separately. And not only that, many of them have their own unique and essential function, so they must all be present for optimum well-being.This makes AlphaGuard® Plus the ideal food supplement for helping to prevent excessive oxidation in the body.Directions: Take one or two capsules a day with a meal, or as advised by your healthcare practitioner.Ingredients per veg capsuleAmountContains no excipients such as fillers & anti-coagulants.

Flowease: Rye Pollen Extract

Flowease™ is a premium quality rye flower pollen extract food supplement which contains specific phytonutrient combinations that can help older men and women if they need to visit the toilet more often - especially during the night.After the age of 40, urination for some men can become increasingly difficult. As a result, many trips to the bathroom both day and night become necessary, reducing quality of life and disturbing sleep. Older women can also have problems with urination for different reasons.Provided your doctor has ruled out potential disease-causes for this problem, Flowease can provide the phyto-nutrients necessary to help our bodies maintain bladder health and stability. It is based on over forty years of research into flower pollen and was first identified in the '60s by Gosta Jonsson, a professor at the Swedish University of Lund. Since then, research into the benefits of flower pollen has grown considerably, and it has been found to contain over a hundred different nutritional components including: minerals, trace elements, amino acids, liponic acids, nucleic acids, enzymes and anti-bacterial substances.Flowease rye pollen extract is available in double strength 90 veg cap x 500mg. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.Ingredients per veg capsuleAmountVegan productPremium Rye Flower Pollen Extract(Secale Cereale L. - Standardized Extract 20:1)500 mgOther Ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, maltodextrin, calcium stearate, silicon dioxide colloidal, monocalcium phosphate, gum arabic and hypromellose (veg capsule).Directions: Take 1 x 500mg capsule, 3 times a day before meals with a glass of water (3 in total per day).Bulk Discount: Buy 6+ of this product and the unit price will be reduced by 15%.

MicroMax: Biodynamic Effective Microorganisms

Micromax® is a naturally fermented live gut reconditioning supplement that helps to optimise the bacterial population profile in the gastrointestinal tract.There are up to a thousand or more different species of bacteria living in our intestinal tract that are vital for our survival and well-being. These “friendly bacteria”, which can weigh up to 2kg, number in the thousands of trillions and which collectively contain up to 3.3 million genes (compared to just 23,000 of the human genome), have developed a close symbiotic relationship with us over the course of evolution, making our gut flora an integral part of our biological and metabolic systems.It is well known that these friendly bacteria inhibit the growth of unhealthy bacteria and other pathogens that would normally thrive in the warm, moist and nutrient-rich environment of the intestines, but research is now showing that they have many other important functions such as: breaking down undigested food (including certain carbohydrates); helping with the absorption of vital minerals (such as magnesium, calcium and iron), lipids, vitamins (such as K) and other nutrients; synthesising particular vitamins such as biotin and folate; adjusting our metabolism and weight; regulating the functioning of the immune system and the production of antibodies and cytokines that are then effective outside the gut as well; and modulating our nervous system, psychological wellbeing (including anxiety and depression) and even memory.In fact, it would be no exaggeration to say that healthy gut bacterial are absolutely central to both physical and psychological health, and that without them, none of us would be here today.Modern diets (which are usually low in fibre, nutrient-poor and/or toxin-rich), antibiotic use (both internally and topically), and the rise in C-section births have all had a deleterious effect on our gut flora, significantly reducing the number of friendly bacterial species inside of us. Some even call this a mass extinction! In fact, research on hunter-gatherers around the world indicate that they have up to 50% more bacterial species and twice as many bacterial genes than we do. This means that in modern humans the vital biological processes mentioned above are not as efficient or effective, making our health more fragile.Traditional ways to try to improve the bacterial populations in our gut have been to take probiotics — supplements that supply healthy bacteria — and/or prebiotics — supplements that supply food that healthy bacteria thrive on. However, when one considers that there are up to 1,000,000,000,000 (a trillion) microorganisms per gram of intestinal contents, with up to 2kg of gut flora in total, then adding a few billion extra per day, in the case of probiotics, is unlikely to make a significant impact, and neither are prebiotics which do not necessarily feed only healthy bacteria.Fortunately there is now an effective solution. Professor Teruo Higa in Japan has developed a very specific fermentation process that produces a perfect balance of approximately 80 different types of specific aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. These include lactic acid bacteria, yeast and photosynthetic bacteria and other accompanying species. (Even though the product contains yeast, it can actually be used to recover from yeast infections because the lactobacillus feed off the candida, producing peroxide in the process which further kills pathogens.)This specific microbe combination, which Professor Higa calls effective microorganisms, are supremely effective at promoting richer and healthier bacterial colonies, inhibiting pathogenic ones, and even persuading neutral bacteria to act in healthy ways! They are able to do all this by introducing health-promoting genetic information into our gut flora systems, taking advantage of the rapid twenty minute generational cycle of bacteria. In this way, our gut flora is fundamentally changed for the better at the genetic level.Micromax® is a new high-quality biodynamic version of Professor Higa’s effective microorganisms that uses organic fermentation ingredients — principally sugar cane molasses and up to 40 different wild Alpine herbs — to produce exceptionally high quality effective microorganisms — up to 80 different kinds of them. The herbs used supply antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and other nutritional components, and as the sugar is used up in the fermentation process, Micromax is safe for diabetics. And although it is a fermented product, it can also be a part of an anti-candida treatment program and a digestive cleanse.When taken orally with water, Micromax is extremely effective at balancing gastrointestinal flora and inhibiting gut pathogens. But it can also be used externally on the skin, and internally in an enema, as a vaginal douche or even as a sinus cleanse. After all, bacteria are not just important for gut health but are found all over our bodies where they play vital roles in keeping us healthy. In fact, Micromax can even be used on surfaces as a natural disinfectant to discourage the growth of harmful bacteria and other pathogens, without damaging healthy bacteria (which as we know causes problems ecologically).The biodynamic manufacturing of Micromax is carried out to the very highest standards in Austria, and all batches are lab tested for safety, including for Shigatoxin-Geb 1 and 2 (EHEC). Finally, Micromax is vegan — no animal products are used in its manufacture.So forget probiotics and prebiotics: if you really want optimal gut health, Micromax is the way to go!Directions: Adults should start with a half tablespoon twice a day 20 minutes before meals (total daily dose 15mL), in water or juice (with no added sugar). If well tolerated, double to 1 tablespoon twice a day before meals (total daily dose 30mL). Alternatively, mix the total daily dosage in a litre of water and drink throughout the day. Never add to hot water. Children should take smaller amounts based on fraction of adult body weight. Do not exceed recommended dose.Potential Reactions: When starting Micromax one can sometimes experience rumbling in the gut and/or diarrhoea. This is a detox reaction and digestion should normalise in 1-3 days.Refrigerate once opened and consume within 6 weeks.Ingredients & Nutrients per 30 mL (2 tbsp)AmountMade without any artificial ingredients, additives, preservatives or flavourings. Solvent free, gluten-free, dairy-free, alcohol-free and vegan. Biodynamically produced and GMO-free.
