Now available from Jarrow is Pterostilbene, which supports healthy aging. Also called dimethylresveratrol, Pterostilbene is part of the class of nutrients known as stilbenes. Pterostilbene has shown positive results for brain health and cardiovascular support.
Jarrow launches Astaxanthin, containing the BioAstin form of this natural antioxidant. Available in a 60-softgel bottle, the product is said to support eye health and joint health, promote a healthy inflammatory response and support skin during sun exposure. According to tests completed at Creighton University, astaxanthin is superior to vitamins C and E, as well as green tea in terms of antioxidant activity.
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
BioEnhanced R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is now available from Jarrow Formulas. This supplement is said to offer advantages over previous R-Alpha Lipoic Acid products because it is heat and shelf stable. Says Dallas Clouatre, Jarrow Formulas’ product development consultant, “Alpha Lipoic Acid powerfully supports the body’s production of its own antioxidants, such as glutathione, as well as contributing to proper insulin metabolism and the regulation of other systems important to maintaining health, especially as we age.”
Unflavored Organic Whey Protein is a source of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) such as valine, leucine and isoleucine. Each serving of Organic Whey Protein supplies four grams of BCAAs; no other protein source offers as many BCAAs as whey. Made from a 100% natural protein concentrate of whey from cows that are not treated with rBST (growth hormone), the product contains no sweeteners, colors or artificial flavors and is certified USDA and CCOF organic.
Skin L&P contains several powerful antioxidants—alpha lipoic acid, tocotrienols, glutathione, vitamin C, astaxanthin and hydroxytyrosol—to support skin health. According to Dallas Clouatre, “Skin L&P is an innovative formulation of clinically tested dietary supplement ingredients to support healthy skin tone.”
Jarrow Formulas has two new QH-absorb products: 100 mg (120 softgels/bottle) and 200 mg (60 softgels/bottles). QH-absorb features ubiquinol—a form of CoQ10—for improved bioavailability. CoQ10 is an important antioxidant that supports heart health, healthy blood sugar levels and other areas of well-being.
