At Primary Care Simplified we now carry a new range of supplements that work synergistically with the BHRT pellet treatment. They are now available to purchase at Primary Care Simplified. Speak to Dr. McCracken to find out which supplement would benefit you most.
Seleno-Iodide provides a synergistic blend of iodine, along with its trace mineral partner selenium, to help maintain iodine levels and reduce oxidative stress for optimal thyroid and breast health. Seleno-Iodide provides 3 mg of iodine combined with 100 mcg of selenium sourced from SelenoExcell®, a highly bioavailable, organically bound selenium.
The GI tract is a finely balanced environment where roughly 500 different strains of bacteria compete for space and nutrients. When there is a healthy balance, few symptoms exist. However, dysbiosis can occur when there is an overabundance of potentially harmful organisms. The natural microflora balance can be upset by medications (such as antibiotics, oral contraceptives, etc.), excessive alcohol consumption, or poor dietary intake.
Ortho Biotic is a unique probiotic formula designed to deliver active organisms shown to promote healthy gut microflora, protect intestinal integrity, and boost immune function. The microorganisms in Ortho Biotic are protected, sealed, and freeze dried away from moisture, heat, light, and oxygen. This allows the bacteria to remain dormant until they are exposed to moisture in the GI tract. By utilizing advanced encapsulation technology, the probiotic organisms are preserved and released on-target for maximum benefit.
Bergamot BPF contains a powerful and unique array of cholesterol-balancing and cardio-protective polyphenolic flavonoids. Optimizing cardiovascular health is a leading concern for many adults, and maintaining balanced cholesterol levels is an important part of that process. Though cholesterol can be consumed through food, circulating cholesterol levels are primarily produced and controlled by the liver using the rate control enzyme, HMGCR.
Numerous clinical trials have shown the specific BPF found in Bergamot BPF works at the level of the liver to help maintain and support healthy cholesterol levels and preserve coronary arteries by maintaining normal inflammatory balance.
Supplementing vitamin D3 and K2 can help promote bone health and maintain health cardiometabolic function. A group of naturally occurring and structurally similar fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is essential for the proper utilization of calcium. Through its activation of the protein osteocalcin, vitamin K helps to bind newly absorbed calcium to the mineral matrix in bone.
In addition, vitamin K has been found to help maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, a cell that breaks down the bone matrix. Vitamin K also provides critical cardiovascular protection by helping to activate matrix Gla protein (MGP), an inhibitor of circulatory calcification. Thus, vitamin K and vitamin D not only share similar qualities, but they also act synergistically within the body.
Hormones (especially estrogen) are critically important in human development and tissue repair. However, estrogen’s proliferative effects must be balanced and controlled for optimal health. Therefore, to ensure proper hormonal balance, estrogen synthesis and detoxification should be supported. Estrogen has several downstream metabolites, of which some are beneficial while others possess potentially harmful biological activity. By keeping hormones in balance and ensuring the body can process estrogen properly, cruciferous vegetable metabolites (i.e., I3C and DIM) work together to maintain cellular health.
EstroDIM is a targeted supplement that combines the synergistic benefits of the cruciferous vegetable metabolites indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and 3-3’-diindolylmethane (DIM) to support balanced estrogen metabolism.
The body’s cells and organ systems depend on an adequate supply of energy to function optimally. The mitochondria, known as the powerhouse of the cell, contain nutrients and enzymes that are important for cellular energy metabolism, including those that convert food to usable energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP functions as the key source of energy for all cells. In order to increase mitochondrial output, there must be adequate fuel supply for combustion and abundant antioxidants to scavenge free radical by-products. Preserving our energy reserves and increasing energy output is a critical part of maintaining optimal health.
MitoCORE supplies key mitochondrial micronutrients and a smart combination of alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine, and acetyl L-carnitine to boost cellular energy production.
