Probiotics are live microorganisms that may be able to help prevent and treat some illnesses. Promoting a healthy digestive tract and a healthy immune system are their most widely studied benefits at this time. These are also commonly known as friendly, good, or healthy bacteria
Probiotics can also help with other types of digestive issues. Research has shown that probiotics can be helpful for people with irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS a hard-to-treat condition that can have a range of intestinal symptoms, such as abdominal pain, cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.
Probiotics make a nice compliment to antibiotics among people who suffer from urinary tract infections, according to the research.
By eating probiotic-rich foods and maintaining good intestinal flora, a person can also help to maintain a healthy immune system.
Some preliminary research shows that probiotics can help obese people who have received weight loss surgery to maintain weight loss. And in a study of post partum women who were trying to lose abdominal fat, the addition of lactobacillus and bifidobacterium capsules, helped to reduce waist circumference.
BELLE-C + = VITAMIN C
COUNT PER BOTTLE:100 Tablets
KEY COMPONENTS / CONTENTS:
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) 1000 mg / tab
Vitamin C Benefits
Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is abundant in vegetables and fruits. A water-soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant, it helps the body form and maintain connective tissue, including bones, blood vessels, and skin. It is required for the bio-synthesis of Collagen, L-carnitine and some Neuro transmitters. Vitamin C is vital for wound healing and the slowing down of natural aging process.
What does vitamin C do? What are some vitamin C benefits?
Vitamin C helps to repair and regenerate tissues, protect against heart disease, aid in the absorption of iron, prevent scurvy, and decrease total and LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides. Research indicates that vitamin C may help protect against a variety of cancers by combating free radicals, and helping neutralize the effects of nitrites (preservatives found in some packaged foods that may raise the risk of certain forms of cancer). Supplemental vitamin C may also lessen the duration and symptoms of a common cold; help delay or prevent cataracts; and support healthy immune function.
What are the signs of a vitamin C deficiency?
Deficiency symptoms include fatigue, muscle weakness, joint and muscle aches, poor wound healing, bleeding gums, and leg rashes. Prolonged deficiency can cause Scurvy, a rare but potentially severe illness, known as Sailors Disease
Are there any risks associated with too much vitamin C?
When obtained from food sources and supplements in the recommended dosages, vitamin C is generally regarded as safe. Side effects are rarely reported, but include nausea, vomiting, heartburn, abdominal cramps, and headache. For most healthy individuals, the body can only hold and use about 250mg of vitamin C a day, and any excess is lost through urine. At times of illness, during recovery from injury, or under conditions of increased oxidative stress (including smoking), the body can use greater amounts up to 1000 mg per day. High doses of vitamin C (intake greater than 2,000 mg/day) may contribute to the formation of kidney stones, as well as cause severe diarrhea, nausea, and gastritis.
BELLE-COBAMINE+ = VITAMIN B12
KEY COMPONENTS / CONTENTS: 100 Tablets
Cyanocobalamine 1000 mcg
SPECIAL FEATURES :
Vitamin B -12 may help maintain the fatty sheaths that cover and protect nerve endings. B -12 with folic acid is needed for the formation of red blood cells and to improve capillary flow. They also convert homocysteine into methionine. Sublingual B -12 is absorbed in the mouth so it bypasses the need for intrinsic factor in the stomach. Orally ingested B12 supplement are just not effective in bringing up the blood level as the sub-lingual or parenteral administration of B12.
Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is one of eight members of the B vitamin family. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy. It is responsible for the smooth functioning of several critical body processes.
-It is needed to convert carbohydrates into glucose in the body, thus leading to energy production and a decrease in fatigue and lethargy in the body.
-It helps in healthy regulation of the nervous system, reducing depression, stress, and brain shrinkage.
-It helps maintain a healthy digestive system. Vitamin B12 also protects against heart disease by curbing and improving unhealthy cholesterol levels, protecting against stroke, and high blood pressure.
-It is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails. It helps in cell reproduction and constant renewal of the skin.
-Vitamin B 12 helps protect against cancers including breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer.
Unlike many other vitamins and minerals, cobalamin supplements do not cause a vitamin toxicity, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Because your digestive tract cant absorb large doses of vitamin B12, oral supplements do not cause vitamin toxicities, and even injecting large amounts of vitamin B12 does not cause health issues. Even though you can safely take vitamin B12 without risk of side effects, you should talk to your physician before taking cobalamin to determine if you really need the supplement. Persons with compromised Kidney function may have a build-up of B12 in their blood.
BELLE-COZYME+ = CO-ENZYME Q10
KEY COMPONENTS / CONTENTS: 90 Tablets
Vitamin E 6 IU, Co Q10 (ubidecarenone) 100 mg
Coenzyme Q10, also known as Ubiquinol-10, is a strong antioxidant. Like vitamins, it is a nutrient your body must take in to feed your cells so your body can operate at an optimum level. It is present in very small amounts in food, notably seafood, and is produced by all cells of the body. Japanese scientists have synthesized CoQ -10 into a raw material that is put into supplements.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential ingredient in the bodys production of energy and in the normal metabolism of fat and energy.
It participates in biochemical reactions in our bodies that provide energy.
It is of extreme benefit to sufferers of angina.
CoQ10 may be of slight benefit in diabetics. It helps improve the function of endothelial cells lining blood vessels and may slightly help with blood sugar control
It prevents the accumulation of fatty acids within the heart muscle by improving the conversion of fatty acids and other compounds into energy. When a person is suffering from cardiomyopathy and other kinds of heart failure, the supplements of coenzyme Q10 are thought to help the remaining muscle cells do their jobs more efficiently.
Coenzyme Q10 is manufactured by the body and stored in your organs: liver, kidneys and heart. It is believed that, in our body, the vitamins such as niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C and folate assist our body to convert the amino acid tyrosine to coenzyme Q10.
Co Q 10 is fat soluble. To be effective, it must be taken with some fat for absorption. Take it with a little peanut butter or olive oil. If possible, take Co Q 10 in the form of soft gel capsules. They are better than dry capsules or tablets.
WARNING / SIDE EFFECTS:
High dosages of CoQ10, such as more than 100 or 200 mg, can induce restlessness, insomnia, muscle pain and fatigue. Prescription drug interactions:
Statin drugs. These include atorvastatin (Lipitor and Torvast), fluvastatin (Lescol), lovastatin (Mevacor, Altocor), pitavastatin (Livalo, Pitava), pravastatin (Pravachol, Lipostat), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor, Lipex).
DOSE: As directed by your Physician.
BELLE-DHEA = DHEA(SR)
KEY COMPONENTS / CONTENTS: 90 Capsules
Sustained Release Micronised De-Hydro-Epi-Androsterone
10 mg to 25 mg strength/capsule available
Dehydroepiandrosterone, or DHEA, is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. The most tremendous effects often seen from DHEA are based on its ability to stimulate protein synthesis from the cell, which in turn may result in an increase in cell regeneration. This regeneration may forestall the cell disease and cell degeneration process. DHEA should be prescribed in a slow release, micronized form, which allows for complete absorption as well as a slow release and metabolism
DHEA is a parent hormone produced by the adrenal glands near the kidneys and in the liver. In men, DHEA is also secreted by the testes. It is changed in the body to a hormone called Androstenedione, which in turn is changed into the major Male and Female hormones.
DHEA levels seem to go down as people get older. DHEA levels also seem to be lower in people with certain conditions like depression. It is made in the human body and can also be made in the laboratory from chemicals found in wild yam and soy. However, the human body cannot make DHEA from these chemicals, so simply eating wild yam or soy will not increase DHEA levels. DHEA levels in the body begin to decrease after age 30. This decrease occurs more quickly in women than men.
-Slowing or reversing aging, improving thinking skills in older people, and slowing the progress of Alzheimers disease.
-Improve physical performance in athletes. But DHEA use is banned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Olympic Committee.
-Treatment for sexual dysfunction, and to improve well-being and sexuality in men and women.
-Used for preventing clogged arteries, breast cancer, infertility, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
-Treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a form of muscular dystrophy called Myotonic dystrophy, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), low levels of steroid hormones, depression, schizophrenia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), inflammatory bowel disease, to slow the progression of Parkinsons disease.
Side Effects and Warnings (by Mayo Clinic)
DHEA is likely safe when taken by mouth in doses that restore normal DHEA and DHEA-S levels and when taken under the care of a health professional. Doses of up to 1,600 milligrams of DHEA taken by mouth daily for one month have been well tolerated. A dose of 50 milligrams of DHEA taken by mouth daily has been shown to be safe for up to six months. DHEA is possibly safe when applied to the skin of postmenopausal women for up to one year.
In women, DHEA may cause decreased breast size, a deep voice, increased genital size, irregular periods, oily skin, and unnatural hair growth. In men, DHEA may cause aggression, breast tenderness or enlargement, decreased testes size, and urinary urgency. Use cautiously in people with hormone-sensitive conditions and in those using other hormonal agents.
BELLE-HALDI+ = CURCUMIN
KEY COMPONENTS / CONTENTS: 90 Tablets
Curcumin 95% pure Cucuminoids
Turmeric, also known as curcuma longa, or Haldi is a very common herb. Often referred to as the Queen of Spices, its main characteristics are a pepper-like aroma, sharp taste and golden color.
Curcumin is the most powerful active anti-inflammatory compound within turmeric. Curcumin has been shown to be a powerful suppressor of chronic inflammation-mediated disease processes. Turmeric is the fourth most antioxidant-rich herb with an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of 159,277.
Curcumin modulates blood sugar and improves insulin receptor function by improving its binding capacity to sugar. It also has an anti septic action that helps enhance immunity and healing.
Curcumin supplementation was shown to destroy cancer cell mitochondria, disrupt the cancer cell cycle and arrest stem cell development that facilitates further cancer cell formation.
For optimal curcumin absorption, it is necessary to combine the turmeric with good fats such as coconut oil, milk or olive oil. You will also want to add a dash of black pepper for the piperine molecule that enhances curcumin uptake.
* Prevents Cancer
* Relieves Arthritis
* Controls Diabetes
* Reduces Cholesterol Level
* Immunity Booster
* Heals Wounds.
People who have obstructed bile ducts or gallstones should NOT take curcumin,
If you have a stomach ulcer, you probably shouldnt be taking curcumin.
Diabetics who take medication to help lower their blood sugar levels and also take curcumin should be vigilant, as it can drop blood sugar to potentially dangerous levels.
The most common gastrointestinal side effects are stomach ache, gas, nausea and indigestion. Talk to your doctor and reduce the amount of turmeric youre taking if you experience any of these side effects. Taking turmeric for long periods can cause gastric irritation or ulcers in some people due to increasing stomach acid, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
Turmeric may also contribute to the formation of kidney stones, particularly in people who have conditions that increase the risk of kidney stones. Pregnant women shouldnt take turmeric as a supplement unless prescribed by their doctor.
BELLE-SUNSHINE+ = VITAMIN D3
KEY COMPONENTS / CONTENTS: 90 Capsules
Cholecalciferol 5,000 IU
Vitamin D3 is one of the most useful nutritional tools we have at our disposal for improving overall health. This vitamin is unique because cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) is a vitamin derived from 7- dihyro cholesterol; however, Vitamin D3 acquires hormone-like actions when cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) is converted to 1,25 di hydroxy Vitamin D3 (Calcitriol) by the liver and kidneys. As a hormone, Calcitriol controls phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function.
*Vitamin D-3 also benefits a range of other tissues. The vitamin helps control the activity of your immune system, so your white blood cells can help fight off infection.
* Vitamin D-3 is good for bone health.
* It is also used for boosting the immune system, preventing autoimmune diseases, and preventing cancer
* Vitamin D is crucial for the prevention of osteoporosis and fractures.
* Vitamin D may play a role in reducing plaque build-up & risk of coronary disease.
* Raising blood vitamin D levels to the normal range reduces blood sugar, which, in turn, raises HDL (good) cholesterol and reduces triglycerides.
* Vitamin D may reduce cancer risk through its role in reducing cell proliferation (i.e., cell multiplication that leads to cancer growth) and inducing differentiation (to restore more normal cell characteristics).
* Hypertension BP is reduced modestly through vitamin Ds suppression of the blood pressure-raising hormone, renin, an effect similar to the ACE inhibitor class of prescription medications.
*Vitamin D is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It is also used for diabetes, obesity, muscle weakness, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and tooth and gum disease.
* Vitamin D is best absorbed when taken with Fat-Containing, Low fiber meals.
