compound found in our bodies as well as in many common beverages and foods,
including milk, coffee, tea and green vegetables. In its purified chemical form,
it is an odorless, essentially tasteless, white, water-soluble crystalline
solid. It is one of the safest substances in biology, similar in toxicity to
water. Some of MSM's essential functions in the body include maintaining the
structure of the proteins in the body, helping the formation of keratin which is
essential for hair and nail growth, aiding in the production of immunoglobulin
which maintains the immune system, and catalyzing the chemical reactions which
change food into energy. The MSM we use is plant based. Soothing and softening
to the skin; tightens connective tissues (important to keep skin from sagging).
NaPCA (Sodium PCA) - A natural humectant, derived from amino acids; in
addition to keeping skin soft and wrinkle-free, it actually serves to attract
water into the skin from the surrounding air. As children, our skin possessed an
abundant supply of this remarkable compound, but as we age, the level of sodium
PCA drops 50% or more!
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) - A method of measuring
antioxidant capacities in biological samples. A wide variety of foods have been
tested using this methodology, with certain spices, berries and legumes rated
very highly. Correlation between the high antioxidant capacity of fruits and
vegetables, and the positive impact of diets high in fruits and vegetables, is
believed to play an important role in the free-radical theory of aging.* see
cited wikipedia ORAC entry

Treats gastrointestinal discomfort due to intestinal parasites.
Pectinase - breaks down carbohydrates such as pectin (found in many fruits).
Phenalmin - is an extract from AFA containing high concentrations of
the active ingredient, Phenyl ethylamine (PEA). PEA is a compound naturally
produced by the brain and is responsible for the mediation of experiences
associated with pleasure and mental awareness. For example, PEA is released
in the brain when one experiences a feeling of love and joy; for this reason
it is often referred to as "the" molecule of love" and as a "mood elevator".
Phenolic - refers to polyphenol activity. Polyphenol refers to a
large class of natural compounds found in colorful plants and with
laboratory evidence of antioxidant activity.
Phenylalanine - an amino acid known for its possible antidepressant
Phycocyanin - is the blue pigment present in blue-green algae that acts
in the living cell as a strong natural antioxidant. When isolated, phycocyanin
was shown to have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and to
reduce or prevent inflammation in various models of inflammation.
Phytase - breaks down carbohydrates, specifically phytates (phytic acid),
present in many difficult to digest grains and beans. Especially useful for
those suffering from serious bowel disorders which result in an inability to
handle phytates from soy and gluten from wheat, oats, rye and barley. Phytase
may increase mineral absorption and the bioavailability of iron, zinc, calcium,

which aid in the digestion and utilization of dietary proteins. Helps deliver
the specific nutrients necessary for muscle and tissue repair, as well as for
vibrant immune system function.

and clears sluggish and oily skins, while the antiseptic and cicatrisant
properties make this oil an effective aid to help with burns, wounds, ulcers and
other skin problems.
Rosehip Seed Oil - Rosehip seed oil contains Vitamin A, which helps to
delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and promotes
collagen and elastin levels to increase. This results in firmer, smoother, and
more youthful skin with greater elasticity. Rosehip seed oil also contains a
high amount of essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, which further promotes
healthy skin. In particular, it is rich in linoleic and linolenic acids, which
are important skin nutrients.
Rosemary - Antiseptic, eases arthritis and muscle pain.
Rosewood - The therapeutic properties of rosewood oil in skincare are analgesic, antiseptic, anti-bacterial and stimulant
Serine - Serine is a non-essential amino acid and is important to overall
good health, both physical and mental. Serine is especially important to proper
functioning of the brain and central nervous system. Serine helps form the
phospholipids needed to make every cell in your body. It is also involved in the
function of RNA and DNA, fat and fatty acid metabolism, muscle formation, and
the maintenance of a healthy immune system. The proteins used to form the brain,
as well as the protective myelin sheaths that cover the nerves, contain serine.
Without serine, the myelin sheaths could fray and become less efficient at
delivering messages between the brain and nerve endings in the body, essentially
short circuiting mental function.
Shea Butter - An excellent skin emollient that helps skin retain
elasticity; high in fatty acids.
Slippery Elm - Compress for burns, skin cancer and poison.

over half of it consists of amino acids -- the building blocks of protein.

selenium, and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid).

all skin types can benefit from this essential oil. It is high in mono and
polyunsaturated fatty acids, in particular Oleic Acid; a good source of
Vitamin E. Contains naturally occurring Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and Vitamin
E. Sweet Almond Oil may also be used as a cosmetic ingredient for softening
Tocopherol - Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that
includes eight naturally occurring compounds in two classes designated as
tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, protects
your cells from oxidation, and neutralizes unstable free radicals, which can
cause damage. This is done by the vitamin E giving up one of its electrons
to the electron deficient free radical, making it more stable. While Vitamin
E performs its antioxidant functions, it also protects the other
antioxidants from being oxidized.
V, W, X
Valine - Valine is an essential amino acid. It has a stimulating
effect and is needed for muscle metabolism, repair and growth of tissue and
maintaining the nitrogen balance in the body. Since it is a branched-chain
essential amino acid, it can be used as an energy source in the muscles, and
in doing so preserves the use of glucose.
Vitamins A, C, D and E - When combined, these vitamins are powerful
antioxidants that are important in building collagen, the connective tissue
that holds skin together.
Willard's Water - An altered electrically charged healing water;
helps to improve the texture of skin.
