  • Metabolix Plus

    60 capsules.

    Be a new and livelier you

    MetaboliX™ Plus is a daily supplement designed to boost energy production, repair cells and combat the ravages of aging – with the added benefit of reducing joint and bone inflammation.

    Our human body is made up of trillions of cells. They are the basic building blocks of life. Cells have specific tasks to perform and they work together to enable the body to meet its basic needs. These cellular processes require energy to function. However, as we age, cellular energy production in our body decreases1.

    NAD+ THE MOLECULE OF YOUTH
    Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a co-enzyme that is present naturally in every cell of our body and is essential to life. It is known as the molecule of youth due to its role in cellular energy production and its ability to regulate the genes of aging. Unfortunately, as we grow older, the NAD+ levels in our body decline.MetaboliX™ Plus contains nicotinamide which is a precursor of NAD+ to boost the NAD+ cellular levels in the body. Daily supplementation of MetaboliX™ Plus combats the ravages of aging!

    SUPPORT ENERGY PRODUCTION
    Mitochondria are powerhouses of our cells. They are empowered by NAD+ in the production of cellular energy for the sustenance of life. As the level of NAD+ declines with age, mitochondria function is impaired which results in reduced amount of surviving healthy mitochondria. This vicious cycle of the depletion of mitochondria which results in metabolic energy deficiency is evident in the physical symptoms of aging such as chronic fatigue and weakness. NAD+ is crucial in the maintenance of functional mitochondria in preserving cellular energy reserve to ensure the body to be in a constant state of health.

    “TURN OFF” AGING GENES
    Sirtuins are enzymes that have the ability to regulate the genes of aging. These enzymes are dependent on NAD+ for their function as NAD+ directly activates them to switch off genes that promote aging. Therefore, boosting the level of NAD+ is intimately related to longevity.

    DNA CELL REPAIR
    Poly-ADP-ribose polymerase-1 (PARP-1) is an enzyme that detects DNA damage and initiates DNA repair. The function of PARP-1 is important as the accumulated replication of damaged DNA would lead to progressive functional decline in many tissues in our body which contributes to the process of aging. For PARP-1 to exert its effect, it requires NAD+ as its sole substrate. Thus, replenishment of NAD+ via supplementation is important in the prevention of damaged DNA replication and the initiation of DNA repair to protect cellular integrity. In addition, blueberry extract is a potent antioxidant which protects cells and deters cell damage as well, complementing the actions of NAD+.

    REDUCE INFLAMMATION AND JOINT PAIN
    As we age, we are more inclined to get aches and pains caused by inflammation. Boswellic acids have anti-inflammatory benefit as it interferes with several protein mediators which are part of the inflammatory cascade. Particularly, in the inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase enzyme that is responsible for the synthesis of prostaglandin E. which is one of the inflammatory mediators that plays a decisive role in the inflammatory process. By blocking this enzyme effectively, boswellic acids are able to reduce inflammatory reaction and relief joint painscaused by mild osteoarthritis.

    Get that youthful glow

    Brillar™ is a daily skin care supplement designed to repair and nourish damaged skin cells for smooth healthy complexion.

    Most women are fixated in the pursuit of achieving fairer skin and tend to neglect the underlying health of their skin. It is important to be pro-active in protecting our skin texture from damages or aging. Brillar™ offers the benefits that you need for smooth and youthful skin!

    SUN-INDUCED AGING PROTECTION
    Polypodium leucotomas acts as a sunscreen as it is effective in defending the skin against harmful UV rays from the sun. The skin would be protected from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays that could lead to premature skin aging such as age spots and wrinkling.

    FIRM & YOUTHFUL SKIN
    Polypodium leucotomas enhances the stimulation of collagen and skin elasticity which would improve skin resilience. Daily supplement of Brillar™ would result in a supple and plump-looking skin.

    SKIN REPAIR
    Polypodium leucotomas repairs cells damaged from the sun by improving the integrity of cell membranes. It also protects fibroblast and collagen in the skin from breaking down. Nicotinamide increases the amount of NAD+ in the body which enhances cellular repair. Blueberry extract with its antioxidant property reduces skin damage from oxidative stress in the body. With these ingredients, Brillar™ is able to improve skin clarity and texture.

    SKIN LIGHTENING EFFECT
    L-cysteine in Brillar™ provides skin lightening effect by stimulating the production of glutathione in the body. Gluthathione on its own, if orally ingested, would be digested immediately and be eliminated before it could exert its use. Glutathione has the tendency to inhibit the production of dark melanin resulting in a fairer and even skin tone.

  • LumeniX

    Lighten and beautify your skin

    LumeniX™ is a skin whitening formula designed to lighten and beautify the skin. Glutathione, which is the key ingredient, reduces skin hyperpigmentation and gives a fairer complexion. It also has the benefit of being an important antioxidant that protects the liver. LumeniX™ is formulated with patented WaferiX™ sublingual technology for an enhanced bioavailability of glutathione.

    It is no surprise that beauty is closely associated to skin fairness. The fairer you are, the more beautiful you would be perceived. Unfortunately, our natural skin color is not something we could decide for ourselves.

    SO, WHAT DETERMINES OUR SKIN COLOR?
    The pigment melanin is the main determinant of our skin color. There are two types of melanin; light and dark melanin. The more dark melanin you have, the darker your skin would be. It is also the culprit responsible for the appearance of tanned uneven skin and hyperpigmentation such as sun spots, age spots and freckles. Regrettably, as we age, there is an overproduction of dark melanin which clouds the skin with dark pigmentations.

    FRET NOT, WE HAVE LUMINEX™ FOR SKIN WHITENING
    LumeniX™’s key ingredient glutathione provides a skin whitening effect by reducing the amount of dark melanin produced in our body. With dark melanin reduced, the skin all over the body would appear lighter and hyperpigmentation would be less visible. Daily supplementation of LumeniX™ will fulfil your desire for a fairer skin and leave you glowing with spotless aura from within.

    MASTER OF ALL ANTIOXIDANTS
    Glutathione also plays an essential role in eliminating toxins from the liver as well as preserving cellular health and DNA integrity by neutralising free radicals in the body. Therefore, glutathione supplementation is important to promote healthy immune function of the body.

    OUR PATENTED WAFERIX™ TECHNOLOGY
    Glutathione supplementation has been a challenge due to its nature as a protein. It is broken down in our digestive track before it can be absorbed into the body for its use. However, with our patented WaferiX™ delivery technology, LumeniX™ sublingual wafer allows glutathione to be absorbed into the blood for its use through the mucosal membrane under the tongue. This wafer formulation improves the bioavailability of glutathione in multifolds as compared to oral disintegrating tablet formulation.

    Make jet lag and insomnia a thing of the past with WafeRest™ – a sleep aid formula designed to help your body get the essential sleep it needs. WafeRest™ is formulated with WaferiX™ patented sublingual technology for optimised drug absorption.

    Circadian rhythm sleep disorders (CRSD) is a family of sleep disorders which affect an individual’s sleep timing. Regardless transient or chronic, CRSDs impact negatively upon a wide range of individuals, including the elderly, shift-workers and jet travellers who move rapidly across various time zones. In addition, several forms of insomnia affect a large population in the community. Both CRSDs and insomnia share a common feature, i.e. the sensitivity to melatonin, a hormone secreted by the pineal gland.

    REDUCE SLEEP LATENCY
    It is common for shift-workers to suffer from sleep disruptions. A chronobiotic is an agent that can regulate the internal body clock’s sleep-wake cycle.
    Due to its chronobiotic properties, melatonin is capable of readjusting dissociated circadian rhythms in shift-workers, allowing them to sleep at odd hours.
    Numerous studies have shown that melatonin therapy given 30 minutes prior bedtime in shift-workers has significantly improved their sleep onset latency and sleep efficiency.

    ALLEVIATE JET LAG
    When individuals travel to a new time zone, their endogenous circadian rhythms fall out of synchony with the day/night cycle at the traveler’s destination. This state of imbalance in the body’s natural “biological clock” results in jet lag. Some symptoms of jetlag include depressed mood, daytime sleepiness, impaired alertness, insomnia and loss of appetite.

    Supplementation with melatonin may reset the body’s sleep-wake cycle as well as relieving daytime fatigue associated with jet lag, effectively preventing or reducing jet lag. The use of melatonin by air travelers shows promise to prevent phase shifts from jet lag.

    PROMOTE SLEEP
    Insomnia is a term referring to both the subjective symptoms of difficulty initiating sleep, frequent night or early morning awakenings and to an underlying disorder. Multiple studies have demonstrated the efficacy of melatonin efficacy in improving and promoting sleep in patients with insomnia.

    Boost your mobility and flexibility

    Combat loss of mobility with FortefiX™ Plus, a daily supplement designed to improve bone health and the relief of joint discomfort.

    We always take things for granted until we lose them; our mobility is one of them. Our musculoskeletal conditions determine our mobility. As a person ages, his bones and joints deteriorate, which leads to an array of chronic musculoskeletal disorders, e.g. osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. These disorders encompass chronic pain and physical disability, diminishing one’s quality of life.

    COMBATS ARTHRITIS

    Curcumin is a compound extracted from an Indian spice, turmeric (Curcumin longa). Curcumin has exhibited numerous therapeutic actions, including anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties which contributes to its anti-arthritic attribute. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease which involves the retrogression of the cartilage, affecting the fluidity of joint motions. Curcumin decreases the production of certain inflammatory markers, reducing the pain associated with osteoarthritis. Also, it is found to suppress gene expression of several enzymes which are crucial in the degradation of the joint matrix.

    PRESERVING THE JOINTS
    The gum resin of Boswellia serrata comprises a high concentration of boswellic acids, which is known for its anti-inflammatory activity. Boswellic acids have been identified to inhibit 5-lipoxygenase, the key enzyme in the production of inflammatory mediators which are involved in the degradation of collagen and elastin found in the extracellular joint matrix. With such valuable properties, it is useful in impeding the development of osteoarthritis. Boswellic acids were proven in studies to alleviate pain and subsequently promoting physical activity and reducing limb stiffness.

    BONE HEALTH AND MAINTENANCE
    Boron is a trace element which serves as a micronutrient for the body. It possesses a diverse spectrum of benefits that are vital to human health. Boron is vital for the formation of bones and its deficiency has been proven to delay bone growth and regeneration. Boron increases the production of steroid hormones, which averts calcium loss and bone demineralization.

    ALLEVIATE CARTILAGE DEGENERATION
    The generation of pro-inflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress are hallmarks of inflammation. In osteoarthritis, the increase in inflammatory mediators including chemokines, adipokines, and pro-inflammation cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-4, and IL-6) leads to the destruction of cartilage. In addition, oxidative stress and reactive oxygen species (ROS) in osteoarthritis induce the death of an important cartilage component, chondrocytes. These effects result in the erosion and degeneration of articular cartilage in joints.

    Pterostilbene is a natural dietary compound found in blueberries. It reduces the expression of inflammatory mediators, oxidative stress and the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) which ultimately alleviates cartilage degeneration.

    Manage stress and anxiety like a zen master

    RevitaliX™ is a unique blend of red and black maca to reduce the effects of stress and anxiety.

    The plant maca, known scientifically as Lepidium meyenii, grows high up (above 4000m altitude) in the mountains of Peruvian Central Andes. It is traditionally consumed for its presumed medicinal properties for centuries. There are different colors of maca root that produce different biological responses. Research has shown red and black maca to be nutritional supplements that possess the following health secrets.

    HELP IMPROVE MOOD
    While acute (i.e. short term) stress boosts our cognitive functions and strengthens our mental strength in coping with future stress, the exposure to chronic stress may be harmful. It takes a negative toll on our behaviour, physical health as well as our emotions. The body releases high amounts of cortisol (i.e. stress hormones), while supressing the production of dopamine and serotonin (i.e. feel good hormones) in its reaction to stress.

    Numerous studies have revealed that red maca may be associated with the modulation of both dopamine and serotonin, to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression – improving one’s overall mental well-being5. Furthermore, it was also found that maca may have significantly reduced corticosterone levels (i.e. another type of stress hormone), alleviating stress as well as the symptoms of poor mood.

    PROMOTE RELAXATION
    It is normal for one to experience occasional anxiety. In fact, anxiety disorders are highly common among all people of different ages and genders.

    It was found that maca is able to reduce anxiety and boost one’s mood.A study has identified the presence of GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter) in maca which is vital for the control of stresswhich to subsequently elevates one’s mood. As such, maca promotes relaxation in addition to its mood-boosting actions.

    Black maca, known scientifically as Lepidium meyenii, grows high up (above 4000m altitude) in the mountains of Peruvian Central Andes. It is traditionally used by the natives to improve children’s performance in school.

    Bacopa monnieri is an ancient herbal remedy found in warm wetlands native to India. It is traditionally used by ancient Vedic scholars to memorize lengthy sacred scriptures and hymns.

    IMPROVE LEARNING ABILITY
    Research has shown both black maca and bacopa to be effective in improving learning skills and concentration. The mechanism of how black maca works remains a mystery, however numerous studies had been done to demonstrate the effectiveness of black maca in improving learning and overall brain function. Bacopa enhances the speed of information processing in the brain which results in fast learning2. Bacopa also appears to nourish neurons in the synaptic pathways of the brain to improve retention ability or concentration.

    IMPROVE MEMORY
    Black maca and bacopa are best known as memory enhancers. They support memory consolidation and improve long term memory retention. Scientific research has shown evidences of significant memory improvement in both black maca and bacopa.

    SUPPORT VIBRANT HEALTH
    Black maca also has the benefit of boosting overall energy and vitality as a natural energizer.

    For the health of your precious baby

    PreXious™ is a prenatal supplement that is specially formulated to protect your baby's embryonic formation, to ensure healthy brain & spinal cord development and to reduce the risk of birth deformities.

    Pregnancy is a precious moment in a woman’s life. It is a time when protective maternal instincts of her unborn child is the strongest and her utmost priority is the health and wellbeing of the baby. It is also an important period to be cautious of the maternal nutrition before and during pregnancy as it would affect the growth of the infant. A mother’s worst fear is to deliver an unhealthy baby.

    WHY IS PREXIOUS™ IMPORTANT?
    There are plenty of prenatal multivitamins that are enriched with necessary nutrients to support a woman’s pregnancy. PreXious™ differs in such a way that it is specifically formulated to prepare a woman for a healthy baby through three vital elements as stated below.

    PROTECT FORMATION OF THE EMBRYO
    The significant feature of embryonic development is the widespread cell division. Nicotinamide supports the crucial cellular energy production required during the formation of the embryo. It increases the level of NAD+ which is essential to power up cells for the extensive cell division. Therefore, nicotinamide is able to reduce risk of miscarriages.

    FOR HEALTHY BRAIN DEVELOPMENT
    Iodine is essential for the growth and development of the baby’s brain. However, the requirement of iodine increases throughout pregnancy due to its increased renal clearance as well as its use in the production of maternal’s thyroid hormone. Iodine deficiency in pregnancy is associated with neurodevelopment deficits of the baby which stunts normal mental development. Therefore, iodine supplementation with PreXious™ is important for the healthy brain development of your baby.

    PROTECT YOUR BABY AGAINST BIRTH DEFORMITIES
    Folic acid is critical throughout a pregnancy especially in the earliest weeks when the baby’s organs are developing. It plays an important role in ensuring the baby’s neural tube develop into the brain and spinal cord healthily. Without sufficient levels of folic acid, the baby’s neural tube may not be able to close correctly, which leads to permanent birth defects such as anencephaly (incomplete brain development) and spinal bifida (incomplete spinal cord/vertebrae development).

    THE HANGOVER

    Are you afraid of waking up with a hangover that may ruin your day after a big night-out of drinking?
     
    Hangover is a group of unpleasant physical and mental symptoms that a person experience after drinking more alcohol than the body can handle. Symptoms include headache, nausea, vomiting, thirst, fatigue, increased sensitivity to light and sound, dizziness, decreased attention, alteration in memory and mood changes (anxiety, irritability).

    LiviUpTM, THE SOBER PILL

    You no longer need to suffer the consequences after a fun happy hour night with friends. Say goodbye to hangovers with LiviUpTM, which is formulated to effectively fight hangover symptoms to keep you feeling great and energized.

    DECREASE ALCOHOL EFFECTS ON THE BRAIN

    Alcohol consumption has profound effects on the brain. Alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream which then travels to the brain and increases the amount of an inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA. With the increased amount of GABA, the processing ability of the brain slows down. 
     
    Dihydromyricetin subdues the surge of GABA in the brain caused by alcohol to prevent the sedating effects on thoughts, memory, judgement, movement and speech.

    DETOXIFICATION
    Alcohol is mainly metabolized in the liver into acetaldehyde by an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH). Acetaldehyde is a highly toxic substance that damages the liver (alcoholic liver disease). High levels of acetaldehyde is hypothesized to cause hangover symptoms such as facial flushing, headache and nausea. Acetaldehyde is further metabolized into a less toxic compound known as acetate by another enzyme called aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH). Acetate is then finally broken down to water and carbon dioxide in the tissues. In the Asian population, approximately 30% suffer from genetic mutation resulting in reduced production of these two enzymes leading to an excess buildup of acetaldehyde and the phenomenon called “Asian flush syndrome". 

    Dihydromyricetin enhances the activity of the enzymes ADH and ALDH to reduce the intensity of facial flushing, headache, nausea and other undesirable symptoms.

    ANTIOXIDANT
    Another detrimental effect of alcohol metabolism is the production of free radicals. These radicals cause damage to cell membranes leading to alcohol-induced oxidative tissue injuries.
    Silybum marianum protects the liver by scavenging free radical damage to alleviate the harmful health consequences of excessive alcohol consumption.

    REPLENISH VITAMIN B1 (THIAMINE)
    Thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, is an essential nutrient required by all tissues especially in the brain for the functioning of biochemical reactions. It is not made in the body, but must be obtained from diet or supplements. Alcohol consumption can cause thiamine deficiency through malabsorption of thiamine from the gastrointestinal tract and impairment of thiamine utilization in the cells. 

    Therefore, supplementation with thiamine is important to make up for the deficiency due to alcohol intoxication.
