Benexia Omega-3 Chia from Proprietary Nutritionals is an organic, gluten-free, whole grain that serves as a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids along with many vitamins and minerals. Chia has been linked to several health benefits, including cardiovascular, brain and immune system support, as well as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Benexia is available in bulk seed, sprouted seed, milled seed, flour and oil, and can easily be incorporated into drinks and other foods.

Proprietary Nutritionals offers Cran-Max, a whole-berry cranberry supplement that supports urinary tract health. A major part of what makes Cran-Max so effective is the patented Bio-Shield Technology delivery system that not only utilizes all vital parts of the cranberry, but also protects the supplement as it goes through the digestive tract until it reaches the optimal place to be absorbed. Cran-Max has undergone several clinical tests, showing a positive effect on urinary tract health. Cran-Max contains no preservatives, sugars or flavorings.

Perluxan from Proprietary Nutritionals supports joint health with a proprietary extract derived from hops cones. The extract supports anti-inflammatory responses by reducing the activity of both enzymatic and non-enzymatic pain-causing compounds. A clinical study of patients with knee pain showed Perluxan had a fast-acting effect on relieving discomfort and significant improvement over placebo only two hours after the first dose. Another study has compared Perluxan to ibuprofen in terms of reducing pain-causing enzymes.

Celadrin is a topical cream with a blend of fatty acids that support joint health. Proprietary Nutritionals considers it to have synergy with Perluxan in terms of joint support and pain reduction. Several studies have shown Celadrin to have positive effects in patients with knee osteoarthritis, improving the amount of time individuals could spend both standing and walking without experiencing pain. Another study reported subjects experiencing a reduction in joint pain only 30 minutes after application—with that time improving with daily use.
