    What is Pueraria Mirifica?

    Pueraria mirifica, also known as Kwao Krua, is a root found in northern and north eastern Thailand and Myanmar. In Thailand, the plant “Kwao Krua” is considered to be a rejuvenating adaptogenic herb and has a history of use in folk medicine. Although the name “Kwao Krua” had been applied to several species of plants having tuberous roots, it was definitively identified as Pueraria mirifica in 1952 from which an unusual estrogenic phenol miroestrol was isolated. There are two kinds of Kwao Krua roots, namely white and red. The White Kwao Krua is the herb used by females and the Red Kwao Krua is the herb used by males. White Kwao Krua has a high concentration of phytoestrogens, while Red Kwao Krua is used by males and has aldosterone, which is a natural hormone.

  • Melatonin: Promotes Healthy Sleep Patterns

    In numerous studies, Melatonin was shown to:

    • May help combat insomnia
    • Enhance sleep quality
    • Fight jet lag symptoms
    • Supports healthy ageing
    • Supports mood & mental health
    • May help decrease ocular pressure

    What is Melatonin and where does it come from?

    Melatonin is the hormone responsible for regulating the body’s biological clock. It is produced by the pineal gland, which is located in the brain. Melatonin helps to regulate sleep. During daylight, the pineal gland in the brain produces the neurotransmitter serotonin, but at night, the pineal gland stops producing serotonin and instead makes melatonin. This melatonin release helps trigger sleep.

    Why take Melatonin?

    • Insomnia: The ability to fall asleep and stay asleep may get a boost from melatonin supplementation. Some studies of young and elderly adults have shown that taking a small amount of melatonin before bedtime helps to both hasten sleep and improve its quality. These benefits were seen in insomniacs as well as in individuals who struggle with only occasional sleep problems.

    • Sleep problems caused by pain or stress: Frequent night-time awakenings can occur as a result of chronic pain or stress. In such situations, melatonin may help by encouraging sounder slumber.

    • Jet lag: If you’re working a night shift or are traveling across time zones, melatonin supplements may help your body to overcome any disorientation and quickly reestablish a normal sleep pattern. Recent studies of airline personnel and others who travel long distances found that melatonin supplements significantly relieved jet lag symptoms. This was true regardless of whether they were flying eastbound or westbound. However, not all studies have found melatonin to be superior to a placebo for such jet lag symptoms as fatigue, daytime sleepiness and impaired alertness.

    • Anti-Ageing: Animal research indicates that melatonin may be of value in extending life–elderly mice administered the supplement lived 25% longer than their cohorts in one study–although much more investigation is needed before firm conclusions can be made about its value for humans in this regard. Melatonin’s antioxidant properties may help to stave off illnesses commonly related to ageing, such as heart disease and cataracts. The hormone may boost immune-system function as well, which can weaken with age.

    • Mood Support: number of people who feel quite normal and energetic in summer become depressed and sluggish in winter, when sunlight is weaker and less abundant. Low melatonin levels may also be present in individuals who react in this way. Taking a melatonin supplement in the afternoon or evening may help improve mood and combat negative emotions associated with winter.

    • Ocular Pressure: Taken in small amounts, Melatonin has been
    shown to lower pressure in the eyes. Since studies have only been done on healthy eyes, it is uncertain whether melatonin would be an effective treatment for glaucoma.

    Who needs it and what are the symptoms of deficiency?

    It is largely thought that as people age, their bodies produce less melatonin. Deficiencies can lead to insomnia. The production of melatonin varies according to the amount of light you’re exposed to; more melatonin is produced at night than during the day, and your body produces more melatonin in a completely dark room than in a dimly lit one.

    Stress, illness, and ageing are the culprits that can speed up this deficiency in Melatonin. Recent research has shown that Melatonin is one of the most powerful antioxidants. The problem of insomnia is helped significantly with Melatonin intake. Most people report a calm deep sleep; some report more dreams and also a good nights rest.

    How much should be taken? Are there any side effects?

    Melatonin researchers themselves have yet to determine the optimum doses for various users. Individual needs vary considerably depending on differences in metabolism. For purposes of sleep, larger doses are not necessarily more effective than smaller doses. (If you feel groggy the next morning, the dose you have taken was too high; if you do not experience a deep restful sleep, your dose may have been too low). Research findings indicate that the lowest potency of melatonin can usually induce natural sleep patterns or help us to cope with jet lag. However they determined that the highest potencies are needed by seniors 65 years of age and older.

    • Helps alleviate anxiety & stress
    • Promotes healthy sleep patterns
    • Suppresses appetite
    • Lessens the discomfort of migraine headaches
    • Strengthens heart, metabolism & immunity

    What is 5-HTP and where does it come from?

    5-HTP is naturally produced in the body. It can also be found in various plants including the seeds ofgriffonia simplicifolia, a West African shrub.

    5-HTP TR 100mg Time Release is an amino acid that naturally increases the body’s level of serotonin, which helps balance emotions, behavior, appetite and sleep.

    100% vegetarian and utilising a controlled delivery system, 5-HTP releases its potent ingredients slowly over a period of 12 hours, which allows for it to be absorbed into the blood stream more efficiently.

    What does 5-HTP do?

    While studies are still being carried out, research has shown that 5-HTP can help improve mood, relieve headache discomfort, reduce anxiety and stress, promote healthy sleep and assist with appetite control, which can greatly aid with weight loss.

    Who needs 5-HTP?

    Anyone who seeks to improve his or her mood, behavior, appetite or sleep may benefit from taking 5-HTP.

    Does 5-HTP have any side effects?

    There is a risk of mild symptoms of nausea often experienced during the first few weeks of taking 5-HTP.

    Minoxidil hair treatments are available in 5% or 2% propylene glycol topical solutions. The propylene glycol ensures that the applied minoxidil is spread evenly across the scalp area and effectively absorbed through the skin.

    How Does Minoxidil Work?

    MINOXIDIL stimulates the scalp area—specifically the deadened hair follicles—which exerts maximum hair growth on the crown of the head for men and women. The exact way Minoxidil stimulates hair follicles is not known, but is suggested that the solution improves blood circulation to the scalp area.

  • Foligain® Nutritional Supplement For Hair Loss: For men and women concerned about hair loss or thinning hair

    Signs of male pattern baldness (Androgenetic Alopecia) usually begin when men are between the ages of twenty and forty-five. Male pattern baldness is hereditary and is caused by a male hormone called DHT being over produced in the body. When there is too much DHT in the scalp, it causes hair to fall out. The initial hair loss in male pattern baldness is almost always at the crown of the head, or near the temples.

    The main thing to look for in a hair loss supplement is a DHT blocker. Blocking DHT from the scalp it the key to ending hair loss. The next thing you need is a product with the proper ingredients to promote circulation to the scalp, increasing hair growth. The final thing to look for is nutrients to clean away dead hair follicles, and feed the healthy and new hair follicles, so hair will be healthy.

    How does Foligain® work?

    • Foligain® reaches the follicle through the blood stream
    • Foligain® promotes the growth of thick, healthy-looking hair
    • Foligain® provides the hair follicles with the proper nutrients in order to grow

    What are the key ingredients in Foligain®?

    Like all cells in your body, your hair follicles need the proper nutrients in the proper amounts in order to grow. For many of these nutrients the most effective way for them to reach the follicle is through the blood stream when taken as an oral supplement.

    Foligain® combines natural vitamins, minerals, DHT blockers, and compounds that promote the growth of thick, healthy-looking hair.

    • Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract: Ginkgo Biloba fastens blood flow to important peripheral part of human body along with fine capillaries thus directly affecting scalp parts. Blood carries oxygen with it so if there is more blood flow there is automatically more oxygen supply, oxygen brings more nutrients with it and all in all essential vitamins E & A give a new lease of life every time to the scalp.

    • Saw Palmetto Berry Extract: Works by interrupting hormonal signals and therefore reducing the uptake by the hair follicles of a damaging chemical called DHT. DHT is also responsible for shrinking hair follicle with which the hair follicle gets smaller and finer. This is referred to as miniaturization with which the hair ultimately falls off. This is how DHT is responsible for about 95% of hair loss. The men or women who lose more hair are those who are genetically pre-disposed in producing more DHT than others.

    • Nettle Leaf Extract: Nettle herb is an exceptional plant for restoring health and beauty to your hair. Nettle works on the inside of your body as well as the outside. Rich in minerals and vitamins to nourish every system in your body, nettles will make your hair grow, gleam, get thick and darken. An added bonus is smooth, clear skin and hard nails.

    • Folate: Because folate is important in tissue growth and cellular function, it is essential for your body to have enough of it to produce healthy skin, nails and hair, because these body parts must regenerate rapidly. Folic acid therefore helps prevent hair loss. It also may be a factor in keeping your hair from becoming gray.

    • Biotin: Biotin is a major component in the natural hair manufacturing process it is essential to not only grow new hair, but it also plays a major role in the overall health of skin and nails.

    • Iodine: Iodine can affect hair loss because it directly affects your thyroid gland, which in turn, directly affects the health of your hair follicles. Hair follicles are delicate and very susceptible to being damaged. Healthy hair follicles grow shiny, thick, healthy hair, while unhealthy follicles lead to just the opposite.

    • Zinc: Deficiency in zinc can contribute a lot to hair shedding because without zinc and other related minerals, you hair shafts get weakened, causing hair breakage and very slow hair regrowth. Zinc benefits for hair include promotion of cell reproduction, tissue growth and repair of broken tissues. It also maintains the oil-secreting glands that are attached to your hair follicles, thus decreasing their chances of falling off.

    • Copper: Copper helps to form hemoglobin in the blood cells and helps to carry the oxygen in the red blood cells. A diet deficient in copper does not help the body to make the hemoglobin needed to carry sufficient blood supply to the hair roots. When hair does not get the vitamins and minerals that it needs, it will die and fall out. The amount of hair loss you experience as a result of this depends on the extent of the copper deficiency.

    • Niacin: Since niacin has a dilating effect on vessels and capillaries it is thought to be increasing circulation to the scalp and stimulating ‘hair growth’.

    • Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 is thought to prevent hair loss and help create melanin, the pigment which gives hair its color.

    • Beta-Sitosterol: Beta sitosterol is a natural plant extract used to stop hair loss in men and women. It has androgen-blocking properties which enable it to target the hormones responsible for male and female pattern baldness. When taken orally as a daily supplement, beta sitosterol has been shown to work best on men and women who have only recently noticed excessive hair loss or signs of premature balding. It’s less effective on people who have had significant hair loss over the years

    • Taurine: In a 2006 French study published in the “International Journal of Cosmetic Science,” researchers confirmed that when the follicle’s bulb takes in Taurine, it increases hair survival in vitro (test tubes) and prevents a specific inhibitor of hair growth called TGP.

    • Jaborandi Leaves: Strengthens hair against breakage and loss. Promotes hair’s natural shine.

    • American Ginseng Root Extract: Ginseng is a wonderful herb that has many benefits. One of these is that it increases stimulation and improves circulation. This has helped those who are suffering from hair loss or weak and damaged hair. Ginseng will also remove any toxins that may be clogging your hair follicles, slowing down or stalling new hair growth.

    What Can I Expect When Using Foligain®:

    Foligain® begins to go to work immediately, but it takes some time to see visible results. Foligain® systematically works to re-grow your new hair as follows:

    • Before new hair is grown, Foligain® works to stop hair loss
    • Next, your existing hair becomes fuller and healthier
    • Finally, new hair starts to blossom

    Typically, after a few weeks you will notice less hair loss. Some hair loss is normal (even those with the fullest heads of hair lose around 100 hairs a day), but you should start to notice less hair in the shower drain or on your comb or brush. Your existing hair should also start to appear thicker and healthier.

    Next, you should start to notice new hair. Please remember that hair usually only grows ½ inch to 1 inch a month. Some users see noticeable amounts of new hair after three months, others take longer. So be patient, by the end of months 6-8 you should start to notice a difference in your photographs (and others will notice for you!).

  • FOLIGAIN MINOXIDIL FOAM for Men is a white foam containing 5% minoxidil for use only on the scalp to help regrow hair in men. A simple, painless, clinically proven answer to hair loss.

    Why use FOLIGAIN MINOXIDIL FOAM?

    It’s easy to use: FOLIGAIN MINOXIDIL FOAM is used twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. FOLIGAIN MINOXIDIL FOAM takes seconds to apply and dries quickly. MINOXIDIL has been shown in clinical studies to regrow hair in 85% of men who used it twice daily.

    Minoxidil: Scientifically proven to regrow scalp hair lost to male pattern baldness.

    • One bottle (177ml) (approximately three month supply)
    • For men who have a general thinning of hair on top of the scalp
    • 5% minoxidil topical foam based solution

    What is Minoxidil?

    Minoxidil was the first drug approved for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (hair loss). Before that, minoxidil had been used as vasodilator drug prescribed as oral tablet to treat high blood pressure, with side effects that included hair growth and reversal of male baldness.

    For the treatment of hair loss, minoxidil is available as a topical solution that is generally either 2% or 5% minoxidil in propylene glycol. The propylene glycol ensures that the applied minoxidil is evenly spread across the affected area and easily absorbed through the skin.

    How does Minoxidil work?

    Minoxidil topical solution is used to stimulate hair growth in people who are balding. The drug seems to exert its maximum effect at the crown of the head. The exact way that minoxidil works is not known, but it may stimulate hair growth by improving the blood supply to the hair follicles.

    What scientific studies give evidence to support its effectiveness?

    Dermatologists conducted a 1-year observational study in 984 men with male-pattern hair loss. The study evaluated the effectiveness of a 5% minoxidil topical solution in halting hair loss and stimulating new hair growth. Over the 1-year period of the study, patients applied 1 milliliter (ml) of 5% minoxidil solution twice day to hair-loss areas of the scalp.

    At the end of 1 year:

    • The dermatologist investigators reported that hair loss areas of the scalp had become smaller in 62% of the patients.

    • In evaluating minoxidil effectiveness in stimulating hair regrowth, the investigators found the 5% solution very effective in 15.9% of patients, effective in 47.8% and moderately effective in 20.6%.

    • Hairs lost during washing numbered a mean 69.7 at the beginning of the study, and a mean 33.8 at the end of the study – a measure of the effectiveness of 5% minoxidil in halting hair loss in the patients studied.

    • Side effects, mostly dermatologic, were reported by 3.9% of patients in the study. None of the side effects was classified as serious.

    Cautions:

    • For external use only.
    • Do not use if you are a woman, not sure of the reason for your hair loss, under 18 years of age or using other medicines on the scalp.
    • Using more or more often than recomended will not improve results.
    • Avoid contact with eyes. In case of accidental contact with the eyes, rinse with large amounts of cool tap water.

  • Pregnenolone: The memory hormone.

    What is Pregnenolone and why should you take it?
    Pregnenolone serves as a precursor to other hormones, including dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and progesterone.
    It has been suggested the role of pregnenolone in the body is to serve as a “mother steroid” (precursor hormone).
    Many effects of pregnenolone on the nervous system have been studied.

    Sleep and Memory:
    Rat studies indicate powerful memory-enhancing effects, far beyond that of other neuroactive substances.
    In healthy men aged 20 to 30, administration of pregnenolone (1 mg daily) was found to improve sleep quality and decrease intermittent wakefulness.
    Pregnenolone has also been shown to affect working, short-term and long-term memory, and may result in increased motivation to learn new information, and an improvement in the ability to acquire new knowledge.

    Stress:
    It has been suggested this hormone may play a role in the neuroendocrine response to stress.
    In a study of airplane pilots subjected to stress, administration of pregnenolone (25 mg twice daily) improved performance without causing adverse side effects.
    In a study of the stress response in rats, an increase in anxiety was observed following administration of pregnenolone.

    Depression:
    Hormones are known to affect mood and behavior via effects on the nervous system.
    In people with either current depression or a history of depression, pregnenolone in the cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that bathes the brain) was significantly lower, than levels in healthy people. In addition, it was found that patients with active depression had lower levels of pregnenolone compared with those with a prior history of depression.

    Arthritis:
    Researchers have reported on the use of pregnenolone in a variety of rheumatologic diseases.
    In a study of pregnenolone therapy for rheumatoid arthritis, six of eleven people experienced moderate to marked improvement in symptoms of joint pain and joint mobility.
    The symptom improvement was apparent two to four days after therapy was initiated.
    In a study of 13 adults with osteoarthritis, pregnenolone therapy reduced the pain and improved the range of motion in seven of the study participants. Pain recurred when therapy was discontinued.

    In a person who suffered from gouty arthritis that was unresponsive to conventional medications, pregnenolone therapy resulted in a dramatic response within three days of initiating therapy.

    This patient received 300mg daily of pregnenolone for four weeks, followed by 200mg weekly of pregnenolone as a maintenance amount. This study of pregnenolone therapy in rheumatologic diseases also reports a substantial benefit in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), psoriasis, and scleroderma.
    No systemic adverse effects were reported.

    Are there any side effects?
    – Pregnenolone is an appropriate supplement for men and women of all ages.
    – Pregnenolone has an impressive record with very low levels of toxicity and is safe for human use.
    – Do not use pregnenolone if you are supplementing DHEA.
    – Do not use if you suffer from seizure disorders, as pregnenolone can suppress GABA activity, resulting in an increase in central nervous system activity which may lead to seizures in those with epilepsy.

    Benefits:
    – A precursor to every other hormone
    – Stimulates the memory storage process
    – Promotes hormonal balance
    – Increases the feeling of well-being and improves mood
    – Reduces depression and the damaging effects of stress
    – Successfully used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other auto-immune diseases

    What Is MACA?

    The powerful Peruvian root, maca, has been cultivated for its natural libido-boosting properties and its benefits for sexual vitality for thousands of years. The exotic root thrives in elevated, mountainous, mineral-rich environments that are often subjected to extremely harsh elements. Peruvian natives have long sought out maca for its boundless medicinal and culinary properties.

Due to its complex nutritional makeup, maca capsules support an array of bodily functions such as the reproductive system, energy levels, sexual health, mood, cognitive functions and overall vitality.

    Why Use MACA From BIOVEA?

    Over the years, organic maca capsules have gained a reputation for being a men’s herb, however, maca benefits men and women alike. Maca has been clinically studied and shown to promote healthy sexual functions and prostate health in men, while the exotic root promotes healthy hormones, sexual functions and fertility in women.

    Maca 500 mg is filled with B vitamins and amino acids that promote optimal energy and endurance levels, while supporting a positive, stable mood. Some studies suggest that maca may help improve memory and learning capabilities, while reducing stress and anxiety levels. (2)

    Organic maca is also rich in potassium, which is a mineral that reduces the risk of hypertension. Studies found that populations regularly consuming maca root had lower systolic blood pressure than populations that didn’t consume maca. (3)

    What is Minoxidil?

    Minoxidil was first created as a blood pressure medication but patients began to notice they were growing more hair! With a change of direction, doctors started prescribing minoxidil as a hair-loss supplement that promotes a full, healthy head of hair.

    Minoxidil hair treatments are available in 5% or 2% propylene glycol topical solutions. The propylene glycol ensures that the applied minoxidil is spread evenly across the scalp area and effectively absorbed through the skin.
