NAD + Pterostilbene Anti Aging, Mimic Calorie Restriction Effects

July 16th, 2016

NAD + Pterostilbene formula expected to mimic calorie restriction anti aging effects:

A synergistic anti aging effect is expected from combining Nicotinamide Riboside and Pterostilbene.

Nicotinamide riboside represents an innovative advance to combat aging that functions via unique mechanisms not found in typical dietary supplements.
Nicotinamide riboside has been documented to help replenish cellular NAD+ and in the process:

  • Promote sirtuin (SIRT1 and SIRT3) gene activation,
  • Enhance growth and efficiency of mitochondria—supporting energy levels and physical performance,
  • Contribute to neuronal health—supporting cognitive function during aging,
  • Promote insulin sensitivity—supporting healthy blood sugar levels in those within the normal range

Pterostilbene is similar in structure to the anti-aging compound resveratrol, but is more bioavailable and preliminary research indicates that in some ways, it may be even more beneficial. Preliminary research shows that pterostilbene may help with healthy cognitive function and may support glucose levels already in a normal range. Emerging science indicates that it may also help support healthy blood lipid levels and a healthy inflammation response.

Top Enzyme Supplements

April 12th, 2016
  1. Ubiquinol & PQQ
    QH is the reduced (active antioxidant) state of Co-Q10, the form produced by our cells. It is significantly better absorbed than ubiquinone. PQQ with QH promotes the creation of new mitochondria, a process known as mitochondrial biogenesis.
  2. Coenzyme Q10
    CoQ10 is a nutrient that supports heart function and promotes energy production in cells.
  3. Proteolytic Enzymes
    Proteolytic enzymes function in the body to digest and break down proteins into their amino acid components. Studies show that various proteolytic enzymes are absorbed through the gut wall into circulation.
  4. Digestive Enzymes

How to make 6% from referred iHerb orders

September 6th, 2014

After someone places an order using your Rewards Code, iHerb will Reward you by placing a credit to your iHerb account.

In fact, you will earn four types of Rewards:

1. First-time Order Credits

You will earn a 6% credit from all first-time customers to iHerb who use your Rewards Code.

The credit amount you earn is based on the size of their order. If they place a $100 order, a $6 credit will be applied to your account.

2. Reordering and New Product Credits

Each time that customer reorders, you will receive an additional 6% credit — and you will receive this credit for the duration of their first year with iHerb. If they purchase any new product that is attributed to your Rewards Code, you will also receive a 6% Rewards credit for the duration of their first-year with iHerb.

3. Credits After the First Year

When your referral places subsequent orders after their first year with iHerb, you will earn 2% in credit. Likewise, if they purchase any new product that is attributed to your Rewards Code after the first year, you will receive 2% credit.

4. Product Introductions to Any iHerb Customer

You will earn Rewards for introducing any iHerb customer to any new product. A Reward is paid for that product introduction as well as subsequent repurchases. The amount of the Reward is equal to 6% for the first year, or 2% thereafter.

For purposes of definition, a “new” product means that the customer has not purchased that product from iHerb before.
