one of the safest substances in biology, similar in toxicity to water.
Some of MSM's essential functions in the body include maintaining the
structure of the proteins in the body, helping the formation of keratin
which is essential for hair and nail growth, aiding in the production
of immunoglobulin which maintains the immune system, and catalyzing the
chemical reactions which change food into energy. The MSM we use is
plant based. Soothing and softening to the skin; tightens connective
tissues (important to keep skin from sagging).
NaPCA (Sodium PCA) - A natural humectant, derived
from amino acids; in addition to keeping skin soft and wrinkle-free, it

remarkable compound, but as we age, the level of sodium PCA drops 50%
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) - A
method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples. A
wide variety of foods have been tested using this methodology, with

play an important role in the free-radical theory of aging.* see

high concentrations of the active ingredient, Phenylethylamine (PEA).
PEA is a compound naturally produced by the brain and is responsible
for the mediation of experiences associated with pleasure and mental
awareness. For example, PEA is released in the brain when one
experiences a feeling of love and joy; for this reason it is often
referred to as "the" molecule of love" and as a "mood elevator".

is important to overall good health, both physical and mental. Serine
is especially important to proper functioning of the brain and central
nervous system. Serine helps form the phospholipids needed to make
every cell in your body. It is also involved in the function of RNA and
DNA, fat and fatty acid metabolism, muscle formation, and the
maintenance of a healthy immune system. The proteins used to form the
brain, as well as the protective myelin sheaths that cover the nerves,
contain serine. Without serine, the myelin sheaths could fray and
become less efficient at delivering messages between the brain and
nerve endings in the body, essentially short circuiting mental

fat-soluble vitamin that includes eight naturally occurring compounds
in two classes designated as tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is
a powerful antioxidant, protects your cells from oxidation, and
neutralises unstable free radicals, which can cause damage. This is
done by the vitamin E giving up one of its electrons to the electron
deficient free radical, making it more stable. While Vitamin E performs
its antioxidant functions, it also protects the other antioxidants from
V, W, X
Valine - Valine is an essential amino acid. It
has a stimulating effect and is needed for muscle metabolism, repair
