Curcumin Extreme is a scientifically supported nutritional supplement formulated to support liver and cognitive health by helping maintain healthy glutathione levels, cell health and integrity and providing antioxidant support. Glutathione is the master antioxidant in the human body which serves to preserve and protect the brain and other body tissues by protecting them from the damage of free radicals. Furthermore, glutathione recycles vitamins C and E, also powerful antioxidants, which allows Curcumin Extreme to help maintain these key activities in the body.

Ingredients

TLS CORE Fat & Crab Inhibitor

Chromium

Dietary chromium is essential trace mineral assisting the metabolism and use of carbohydrates and fat. Known as the glucose tolerance factor, chromium promotes the delivery of blood sugar to cells, thereby helping to maintain normal insulin activity. Chromium also helps maintain healthy levels of cholesterol and other blood lipids. Due to the role it plays in metabolism, chromium is commonly added to natural weight-loss products.

Phaseolus vulgaris (White Kidney Bean Extract)
Research has shown that supplementation with white kidney bean extract promoted a greater reduction in body weight, body mass index (BMI) and fat mass. Scientifically known as Phaseolus vulgaris, white kidney bean is classified as an amylase inhibitor. Amylase is an enzyme that breaks down starchy carbohydrates into more easily absorbed sugars such as glucose. As individuals age, the ability to use carbohydrates from the diet slows down, causing increased glucose in the blood stream leading to excess storage in the form of fat. Amylase plays a role in the digestion of carbohydrates and subsequently in the absorption of unwanted calories. Supplementation with white kidney bean extract allows certain carbohydrates to pass through the body undigested, stopping them from eventually being converted into fat.

LeptiCore™*
LeptiCore – a proprietary, safe and natural complex of plant-based polysaccharides and esterified fatty acids – has demonstrated the ability to to support a healthy body weight. LeptiCore provides a blend of gum Arabic (Acacia arabica), guar gum (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba), locust bean gum (Ceratonia siliqua), pomegranate (Punica granatum) extract, blue-green algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) extract and beta-carotene.

GreenSelect™ Phytosome™** Green Tea Decaffeinated Extract
GreenSelect Phytosome is unlike the regular green teas you see on the market today. It is a combination of standardized decaffeinated green tea extract and soy phospholipids (lipids that are composed mainly of fatty acids, a phosphate group, and a simple organic molecule). It is designed to help protect the body from the negative effects of free radicals and enhance the product’s bioavailability and efficacy.

Green tea has long been studied for its powerful antioxidant properties. It is also believed to promote a healthy metabolic rate which can help to support a healthy weight. Scientific research has also demonstrated that standardized green tea extracts promote fat oxidation, or the breakdown of stored fat for energy.

CURCUMIN EXTREME

Curcumin (BCM-95™***)
Scientists have long been aware of the wide array of health benefits from the Indian spice turmeric, which is a source of the active phytochemical curcumin. Until now, curcumin has been known to have poor bioavailability, requiring high doses to promote health. BCM-95™ delivers a more bioavailable curcumin for a variety of health benefits.

How is this possible? Traditional 95% extract focuses strictly on one part of the turmeric rhizome. This bioactive substance of turmeric (Curcuma longa) contains “Curcuminoids” and Curcumin is the most important molecule. Research has shown its tremendous health benefit. BCM-95® represents the natural spectrum of turmeric rhizome. It is 100% natural.

Antioxidants have received increased attention, and it’s important to know what nutrients are antioxidants, and information about them. One such nutrient is Curcumin.

The cognitive health supporting of curcumin are among the most studied. These studies show that curcumin can cross the blood-brain barrier and support the normal production of amyloid-beta protein in the brain. This supports cognitive health as we age. Another property of curcumin is its ability to promote normal levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase and catalase in the brain.

Broccoli Seed Extract (6% Sulphoraphanes)
The health benefits and protective properties of broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables have been well documented over the past 25 years. Broccoli Seed Extract is a potent source of sulphoraphane glucosinolates. Sulforaphanes support the normal production of enzymes including glutathione synthase. Sulforaphanes promote the body’s natural enzyme antioxidant defense systems and function as a powerful indirect antioxidant.

Sulphoraphanes work to support the body’s natural defense systems and maintain healthy levels of glutathione. Glutathione is the master antioxidant of the body. It is an important molecule that acts as a powerful antioxidant to protect the brain and other body tissues from free radicals. It also acts to recycle vitamin C and E which also neutralize free radicals.

Selenium (Selenomethionine)

Selenium is a required cofactor for selenoproteins such as glutathione peroxidase.

Isotonix OPC-3 Powder Drink

Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract are seeds typically from red grapes (instead of white), which have a high content of compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). The OPCs are also present in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, including pine bark (Pycnogenol®) and green tea, where, like grape seed extract, they possess antioxidant properties. These antioxidants help protect cells from free-radical damage, and promote cardiovascular health and vision health. Grape seed extract is extremely rich in polyphenols, a compound that’s high in antioxidants.

Red Wine Extract
Red wine is a naturally occurring antioxidant. It occurs naturally in grape vines, roots, seeds and stalks, with its highest concentration in the skins. Red wine is significantly higher in antioxidant properties than in white wine. This brings up the concept of the French-paradox. In the late 1990s, scientists took note of a phenomenon among the French. There were and still are very high rates of heart health in the provinces where residents ate higher fat foods and drank red wine. The protective properties of red wine are believed to have protected the health of the heart. In test tube and animal studies, red wine extract helped blood vessels remain open and flexible.

Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol®†)
Pycnogenol® is a natural plant extract from the bark of the maritime pine tree, which grows exclusively along the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne. This unspoiled and natural forest environment is the unique source of Pycnogenol®. The extract has three basic properties — it’s a powerful antioxidant, it selectively binds to collagen and elastin, and it aids in the production of endothelial nitric oxide which promotes healthy vasodilation of blood vessels.

As one of the most potent natural scavengers of free radicals, Pycnogenol® mops-up all kinds of aggressive radicals before they cause any damage via oxidative stress. Its antioxidant capabilities also appear to help strengthen blood vessel walls and capillaries. It helps maintain healthy circulation and cell vitality.

Today, Pycnogenol® is one of the most researched ingredients in the natural product marketplace.

Bilberry Extract
Bilberry extract is derived from the fruit of a common European shrub closely related to the blueberry.

Extracts of the ripe fruit are known to contain flavonoid pigments known as anthocyanins. These pigments act as antioxidants. Scientific studies have shown that bilberry may help to support healthy vision and veins. Bilberry extract also appears to strengthen capillaries and arteries.

Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex

Bioflavonoids are found in certain plants and act as light filters protecting the delicate DNA chains and other important macromolecules of the plant by absorbing ultraviolet radiation.

Isotonix Multivitamin Powder Drink

Vitamin A (Beta-Carotene)

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is needed by all body tissues for growth and repair. It is part of a group of compounds that include retinol, retinal and beta-carotene. Beta-carotene, also known as pro-vitamin A, is transformed by the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A can be found in foods like organ meats (liver and kidney), egg yolks, butter, milk and cod liver oil. Vitamin A improves the eye's sensitivity to light and maintains eyesight in low light conditions. It supports the normal function of the epithelial tissue, and helps keep skin and mucous membranes healthy. Vitamin A also helps with the growth and development of teeth and bones.

Calcium
Calcium is found in the highest concentrations in milk. Other foods rich in calcium include the vegetables collard greens, Chinese cabbage, mustard greens, broccoli and bok choy, as well as tofu and sardines with bones included.

Calcium is an essential mineral with a wide range of biological roles. Calcium exists in bone primarily in the form of hydroxyapatite (Ca10 (PO4)6 (OH) 2). Hydroxyapatite comprises approximately 40 percent of the weight of bone. The skeleton has an obvious structural requisite for calcium. The skeleton also acts as a storehouse for calcium. Apart from being a major constituent of bones and teeth, calcium is crucial for muscle contraction, nerve conduction, cardiovascular health, blood coagulation, glandular secretion, the production of energy and the maintenance of immune function, among other things.

Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth. A sufficient daily calcium intake is necessary for maintaining bone density. The amount of calcium in the blood is regulated by PTH (parathyroid hormone). Low levels of calcium have been associated with reduced bone mass and osteoporosis.

Magnesium
Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are potent sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches and milk are less rich sources of magnesium. Refined and processed foods are generally quite low in magnesium. Some surveys report lower intakes, and some believe that the dietary intake for many may be inadequate.

Magnesium is a component of the mineralized part of bone and is necessary for the metabolism of potassium and calcium in adults. It helps maintain normal levels of potassium, phosphorus and calcium. It’s also important for the mobilization of calcium, transporting it inside the cell for further utilization. It supports the normal function of heart, muscles and nerves, together with sodium, potassium and calcium.

Manganese

Manganese is a mineral found in large quantities in both plant and animal matter. The most valuable dietary sources of manganese include whole grains, nuts, leafy vegetables and teas. Manganese is concentrated in the bran of grains, which is removed during processing. Only trace amounts of this element can be found in human tissue. Manganese is predominantly stored in the bones, liver, kidney, and pancreas. Manganese is a component of the antioxidant enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD).

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
The best food sources of vitamin C include all citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruit, lemons, tangerines), as well as other fruits and vegetables, such as strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, peppers and cantaloupe. Vitamin C is a rather fragile vitamin, and can be easily destroyed by cooking or exposure of food to oxygen.

Vitamin C promotes a vitamin "sparing" effect, allowing your body to better utilize multiple vitamins and minerals such as thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, biotin, folic acid, B12, retinaldehyde and alpha-tocopherol and in this case, the mineral calcium. It helps with the formation of collagen. Vitamin C helps maintain the tightness of the cell arrangement. It participates in the oxidation-reduction reaction in the body. It supports the growth of connective tissue, bones and teeth. Vitamin C improves the absorption of iron.

Vitamin C has become the world’s most popular vitamin. One reason is because of its vital role in helping the body fight infections (supporting the immune system). Other vital roles vitamin C plays in the body involve the strengthening of the blood vessels and gums. Although this may sound like a lot, the importance of vitamin C does not stop there.

The most convincing evidence suggesting the need for vitamin C supplementation is based on the fact that humans are incapable of producing vitamin C in their bodies. When studies were conducted on animals to see how much vitamin C they produced in relation to their body weight, it was determined that they produced roughly the equivalent of a human consuming 3,000-7,000 milligrams per day. Since it is water-soluble, vitamin C is flushed from the body each day. Since humans don’t always eat foods containing an adequate amount of vitamin C, it often is beneficial to take a supplement.

Vitamin D3
Regular sunlight exposure is the main way that most humans get their vitamin D. Food sources of vitamin D include vitamin D-fortified milk (100 IU per cup), cod liver oil, and fatty fish, such as salmon, and small amounts are found in egg yolks and liver.
Vitamin D3 helps with the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus. It helps with the growth and development of teeth and bones. It helps maintain normal levels of calcium in the blood. Vitamin D3 also helps to maintain the normal function of nerves and muscles, and helps with calcification of bones.

Vitamin E
Vitamin E is one of the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidants in the body, and it helps protect cell membranes from the damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that is linked to the enhancement of immune system function and topical wound healing. Vitamin E also helps support a healthy cardiovascular system. The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amount of vitamin E and corn and soybean oil contain smaller amounts.

Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherol and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is available in a natural or synthetic form. With vitamin E, the natural form is far more in terms of absorption and retention in the body. The natural form of alpha-tocopherol is known as d-alpha tocopherol, which is what we use in our Heart Health Fish Oil.

Potassium
Foods rich in potassium include fresh vegetables and fruits, such as bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, avocado, raw spinach, cabbage and celery. Potassium, in the body, is classified as an electrolyte and is involved in electrical and cellular functions in the body.

Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is naturally found in organ meats, liver, beef, pork, eggs, whole milk, cheese, whole wheat bread and fish. Vitamin B12 can only be found in animal products, with small amounts derived from the fermented soy products miso and tempeh, and peanuts. It is essential that vegetarians consume a vitamin B12 supplement to maintain optimal health. Vitamin B12, when ingested, is stored in the liver and other tissues for later use. Vitamin B12 participates in the metabolism of energy, and helps maintain skin health.

B Vitamins (B1, Nicotinamide, Pantothenate, Biotin)
The B vitamins are largely found in meats, beans, cereals, eggs, nuts, seeds and Brewer’s Yeast. Vitamin B1 participates in the energy metabolism. It helps maintain the proper function of the neuro and cardiovascular systems. Nicotinamide participates in energy metabolism. It also helps maintain healthy skin, neuro and digestive systems. Pantothenate and Biotin participate in the metabolism of energy. They also participate in the formation of fat and cholesterol and aid in the metabolism of amino acids.

Folic Acid
Folic acid is mainly found in fruits and vegetables. Dark leafy greens, oranges, orange juice, beans and peas are the best sources as well as Brewer’s yeast, which supply additional B vitamins. Folic acid plays a key role by boosting the benefits of B12 supplementation. These two B vitamins join forces and work together in maintaining normal red blood cells. Folic acid is a component of co-enzymes. It participates in the formation of nucleic acid and nucleic protein. It also helps maintain the normal growth and development of the fetus.

Vitamin B2
Vitamin B2 is a found in liver, dairy products, dark green vegetables and some types of seafood. Vitamin B2 serves as a co-enzyme, working with other B vitamins. Vitamin B2 participates in the energy metabolism, and helps maintain skin health.

Vitamin B6
Poultry, fish, whole grains and bananas are the main dietary sources of Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is a co-factor required for protein and amino acid metabolism and helps maintain proper fluid balance. It participates in the metabolism of amino acids. It helps with the conversion of tryptophan into Niacin Equivalent. Vitamin B6 helps maintain healthy red blood cells, and neurological system. Vitamin B-6 should be administered as a part of a complex of other B vitamins for best results.

Iodine
Iodine is found in most seafood and in iodized salt. Iodine helps maintain normal growth and development.

Selenium

The best dietary sources of selenium include nuts, unrefined grains, brown rice, wheat germ and seafood.

Copper
An essential trace mineral in human nutrition, copper, is important for a wide range of biochemical processes, which are necessary for the maintenance of good health. Foods that include the richest sources of copper are nuts, seeds, legumes, the bran and germ portions of grains, liver, kidneys, shellfish, oysters and crustaceans. There are experimental indications that suggest that copper supplementation may have some beneficial effects on immunity, for those with copper deficiency.

Chromium
There are claims that Chromium supports weight loss and increases muscle mass. More than 90 percent of American diets do not provide the recommended amount of chromium.

Chromium is found in small amounts in many foods. Food sources of chromium include brewer’s yeast, whole-grain cereals, broccoli, prunes, mushrooms, beer, spices, brown sugar, coffee, tea, wine and meat products.

Zinc
Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafoods, including oysters. It is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that has functions in approximately 300 different enzyme reactions. Thus, zinc plays a part in almost all biochemical pathways and physiological processes. More than 90 percent of the body’s zinc is stored in the bones and muscles, but zinc is also found in virtually all body tissues. Zinc participates in the formation of nucleic acid and protein. It also participates in the metabolism of energy.

NutriClean Advanced Fiber Powder

L-Glutamine
High-protein foods including meat, fish, beans and dairy products are excellent sources of glutamine. L-glutamine is an amino acid derived from another amino acid, glutamic acid. Glutamine is a restorative amino acid that is used by the GI tract as its source of fuel. Glutamine helps to promoting immune health. Heavy exercise, infection, surgery and trauma can all deplete the body's glutamine reserves, particularly in muscle cells. Because the cells of the intestine use glutamine for fuel, supplemental L-glutamine has been used to promote digestive health.

Inulin Fiber (fructo-oligosaccharide extract of chicory root)
Inulin fiber is a type of prebiotic fiber. Prebiotics are food sources that are preferred by friendly bacteria. Inulin or fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are fibers in the form of starches that the human body cannot fully digest. When a person consumes prebiotics, the undigested portions provide nourishment for beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. Inulins may promote the growth of favorable bacterial populations, such as bifidobacteria in the colon. Bifidobacteria may inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria.

Fibersol-2 (soluble fiber flucose polymer complex) 5,000 mg
Fibersol-2 is a type of soluble fiber. It has some positive impact on the elimination of wastes and intestinal cleansing, yet it may assist in s">Probiotic Blend (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Bifodobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus casei)
Probiotics such as acidophilus, or lactobacillus acidophilus, are certain forms of bacteria that are also known as the "beneficial" or "good" bacteria. These bacteria actually help to maintain a healthy functioning digestive tract. Disruptions to these populations of probiotics (good bacteria) are common and must be kept at adequate levels in order to overwhelm other bacteria, which may begin to run rampant in the event the good bacteria levels decrease.

All in all, the probiotic bacteria tend to result in a heightened ability of the immune system to recognize invading organisms.  Several key fighters of the immune system, including macrophages, immunoglobulins cytokines are benefited by regular intake of beneficial bacteria.

FAQ

How does a detox work?
During day-to-day processes, your body may grow less able to naturally flush out all its self-produced toxic waste. When toxins are retained and stored in the body the condition is called toxemia. Detox can help purge the blood and tissues from toxic residue, but detox also cleanses and rejuvenates the entire excretory system and clears clogged bowels and blocked lungs. It also flushes out sluggish kidneys and the bladder. With caustic pollutants like ammonia or excessive fatty acids shed from the body, your organ systems can start functioning properly, thus kick starting your metabolism and setting the stage for healthy weight loss.

What else can I do to enhance my results while using the TLS Detox Kit?
To enhance the effects of the TLS Detox Kit cleanse, you should increase your intake of raw fruits, vegetables. Eat more natural foods and increase your exercise. You should limit caffeinated beverages to one serving or cup of coffee per day. Cleansing tends to boost energy levels. Reduce your protein intake. Protein contains ammonia, which must be filtered by the liver. Limit your intake of eggs and meats (especially red meats) to decrease strain on the liver. Refined sugars and carbs should be avoided, including cookies, crackers and other foods in a bag or box to decrease stimulation of insulin secretion during the cleanse. Also, stay away from artificial sweeteners and MSG, a common additive, and any other ingredients that do not occur naturally in foods to avoid additional stress on the liver. You must eliminate the following things from your lifestyle during the detox cleanse:

Processed foods — such as luncheon meats, boxed meals, white bread and cheese foods

Smoking — cigarettes contain thousands of toxic chemicals. Please refrain from smoking if at all possible.

Soft drinks — phosphoric acid can upset the pH balance in your body in addition to pulling much needed calcium from the bones when consumed in large quantities. Soft drinks can also be high in sugar.

Hydrogenated oils — foods are hydrogenated to increase their s">Who should use the TLS Detox Kit?
