At times of stress, the body goes through a series of changes in order to prepare you to run away or stay and fight, called your fight or flight response. Part of this response is the release of hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine (or adrenaline). If your stress response isn’t reversed, it can contribute to a condition known as chronic stress, and can also interfere with the hormones involved in your sexual response. The result can be low libido.

Mega Probiotic ND is a natural probiotic supplement containing eight probiotic strains to support healthy gut function.
Mega Probiotic ND is an all-natural non-dairy, acid-resistant probiotic supplement to support digestive tract health. Eight species of micro-organisms provide a full spectrum of probiotic strains for proper digestive tract health and function. Probiotics also support healthy colon cell growth, immune function, and optimize intestinal motility. An imbalance of beneficial bacteria can result in fungal infections in the body as well as urinary tract infections.
Mega Probiotic ND is guaranteed to contain 15 billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) in each serving size. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is a soluble fiber and a pre-biotic. As a pre-biotic, they support the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestinal tract while inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria. Beneficial bacteria help to rid the colon of acids and toxins which would otherwise get into the blood and inflame the skin. They also inhibit colonies of harmful micro-organisms which can otherwise lead to intestinal damage and excessive permeability.
It is important to use a non dairy variety since skin can worsen due to allergies to dairy. The use of antibiotics and foods sprayed with anti-bacterials is a major causal factor for the destruction of beneficial bacteria and hence it would be prudent for everyone to use a good probiotic.
Life Extension Skin Restoring Ceramides hydrate and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The ceramides naturally present in our skin give it that young, supple appearance. Wheat contains these same ceramides, but you can't get enough from wheat in your diet to make a difference. Skin Restoring Ceramides is a convenient oral supplement that smooths the appearance of wrinkles, hydrating and revitalizing your skin from within.
Ceramides play an important part of your skin's role as a protective barrier, helping to bind together the cells that make up the surface of your skin. These nourishing oils help retain moisture and protect your skin. But ceramide levels naturally decrease as we age — making it hard to maintain smooth, supple, healthy skin as we get older.
Hyaluronic Acid Capsules High Strength help to maintain healthy youthful skin, supple & arthritic-free joints and alleviate dry eye syndrome.
Hyaluronic Acid capsules by VH provides a high quality, high strength form of hyaluronic acid often referred to as "fountain of youth".
Hyaluronic Acid works to plump up the skin cells of the body helping to erase fine lines and wrinkles. Levels of this decline with age and may be 50% less by the age of 40. As a protein, it can hold 1000 times its own weight in water and hence it is excellent at plumping up and hydrating the skin cells. A primary cause of degeneration of the collagen network of the skin is the decreased levels of hydrated hyaluronic acid, which supports the collagen network. Restoring hyaluronic acid plumps the skin cells and restores moisture in all the tissues of the body.
In an article “HA: How To Live 100 Years Without Growing Old” the author, Bill Sardi, describes HA as a revolutionary natural molecule that stops or even reverses ageing and that HA is the modern day “fountain of youth”. He writes that HA helps to erase fine facial ageing lines and wrinkles and can produce wound healing without scarring. With the volume of evidence growing regarding the attributes of HA, it is also being acclaimed by the US press “as the key to the fountain of youth”
A lack of HA in body joints can set in process the progressive wear and tear leading to cartilage destruction, joint pain, reduced flexibility and osteoarthritis. HA can help with healing because it provides the cushioning between the joints that then enables cartilage to re-stabilize, whereas a lack of HA causes pain in movement and keeps the joint chronically inflamed leading to progressive wear.
Levels of hyaluronic acid have been found to be lower than normal in people suffering from dry eye syndrome and there is justification in the use of this supplement for this concern as well as helping to alleviate vaginal dryness.
This supplement contains sodium hyaluronate, the active form of hyaluronic acid, which has a smaller particle size making it especially more penetrative. Due to its high visco-elasticity and lubricity, sodium hyaluronate has been used to treat inflammatory joint concerns as well as used topically in anti-ageing creams.
