Royal Collagen Peptides
What are the 5 in 1 benefits of Royal Collagen Peptides?
Plus
Minus

1. Skin Health Improving - elasticity, hydration, fine lines, wrinkles, ligaments, and tendons

2. Bone Health Improving - bone stability, flexibility, and density

3. Nail Health Promoting - growth and health of fingernails 

4. Hair Health Promoting - healthier hair growth

5. Joint Health Measurable -recovery of joint cartilage

What is a Highly Purified Collagen Peptides Complex?
Plus
Minus

Specific Collagen Peptides sourced from Italy, Germany, Great Britain,other EU countries.

Our Specific Collagen Peptides are a breakthrough because they are proven to stimulate the creation of new collagen at any age. The benefits are many: improved skin texture, glow, and elasticity, stronger nails, and more youthful hair with renewed luster and bounce. The advantages are not merely cosmetic. Specific Collagen Peptides increase collagen levels throughout the body to restore cartilage, so you'll move better, and increase bone density to keep your bones strong.

How are Royal Collagen Peptides different from other collagen products?
Plus
Minus

The vast majority of collagen products available on the market today do not address the issue of collagen biosynthesis (the body’s ability to create its own collagen.) They combat the problem of collagen degeneration by offering a supplement that focuses on offsetting the loss. Royal Specific Collagen Peptides both offset the loss and maximize stimulation of the human cell types responsible for collagen biosynthesis, giving the body “fuel” to create collagen and improve skin, hair, nail, joints, and bone health.

How do Royal Collagen Peptides help reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
Plus
Minus

Royal Collagen Peptides work in two ways: first, they stimulate the activity of the fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are cell types that build fibers and molecular components of the connective tissue, giving the skin its structure and firmness. Activating the fibroblasts encourages the production of new collagen structures as well as the ones from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid can bind a great deal of water and is indispensable for tight, firmer-looking skin. This process takes some time, but with consistency and determination, your skin regains its natural tone and improves its moisture-storing capacity.

Royal Collagen Peptides provide the skin with its necessary “building blocks.” Their mode of action is exceptionally sophisticated. They perfectly resemble the fragments which form when skin collagen degrades. Our bodies recognize these peptides as degradation products and boost our collagen synthesis. Thanks to the considerably higher production of natural collagen, the skin can repair itself and replace what was lost through age and environmental influencers.

Why are Royal Collagen Peptides important for connective tissues?
Plus
Minus

Connective tissue includes the skin, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and joint cartilage, as well as the fasciae and blood vessels.Collagen is the main component of connective tissue and structural tissue and is found everywhere in the body. It gives bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles strength and flexibility. If the collagenous structures are degraded by heavy stress, like working out, or by the normal aging process, the function of all organs and tissues that depend on collagen are impaired. Ligaments and tendons weaken, muscle mass decreases, and the loss of vital cartilage tissue at the joints can lead to painful symptoms. Fibroblasts are cell types responsible for collagen biosynthesis in the connective tissue. They build fibers and molecular components of the connective tissue, giving the skin structure and firmness. Activating the fibroblasts encourages the production of new collagen structures as well as the ones from hyaluronic acid.

Why do I need Royal Collagen Peptides to promote bone health?
Plus
Minus

About 70% of our bones are made of inorganic minerals and 10% of water. Collagen makes up the remaining 20% and forms the basic framework of the bone to which calcium “attaches.” Imagine calcium as the concrete bridge and collagen as the steel core. Calcium provides the mineral component of the structure’s strength. For this reason, Royal Collagen Peptides’ consumption is essential for helping maintain bone health. If collagen is missed in your body, the degradation of bone mass along with the stability of high-density bone is compromised. Royal Collagen Peptides help support bone health and improve bone stability and flexibility by stimulating the activity of the osteoblasts, the cell types responsible for the collagen biosynthesis (absorption) in the bone.

Why do I need Royal collagen peptides for promoting joint health?
Plus
Minus

Cartilage is a fundamental constituent of our joints. It acts as a shock absorber when two bones meet at the joint, allowing frictionless, smooth movement while protecting the bones and joints. Since cartilage is not connected to the bloodstream, it receives its nutrients via synovial fluid that acts like a lubricant film and supplies the sponge-like cartilage with nutrients. This works through movement and pressure. Exercise is essential for providing the cartilage with nutrients. Royal collagen peptides stimulate the activity of the chondrocytes. Chondrocytes are cell types responsible for the collagen biosynthesis in the cartilage. They produce and maintain cartilage matrix.

Do Royal Collagen Peptides trigger allergies?
Plus
Minus

Collagen peptides are considered non-allergic. Their structure is very similar to that of the body’s natural collagen. For that reason, collagen peptides are not regarded as a foreign substance that must be combated, even in a very sensitive immune system. This is why medical sponges made of collagen are used in surgical procedures. For example, a surgeon uses them to stop bleeding and leaves them in place to continue to regulate blood flow after the operation. The surgeon simply sutures the incision, and the sponges are absorbed and degraded in the body in a few weeks. Nevertheless, if you suffer from allergies, we recommend consulting your healthcare professional before taking this product.

Can a person with diabetes take Royal Collagen Peptides?
Plus
Minus

For people with diabetes who have to keep their blood glucose level under control, collagen peptides are ideal energy and protein sources. Royal Collagen Peptides support the functionality of collagenous structures in the skin, so they can also help improve healing time.

Can I take Royal Collagen Peptides while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Plus
Minus

We recommend talking with your healthcare professional first before taking our product because nutritional needs vary when pregnant or breastfeeding.

 Do Royal Collagen Peptides taste like protein drinks?
Plus
Minus

Our Royal Collagen Peptides taste nothing like conventional protein powders and peptides. Because of their neutral taste and excellent dissolution properties, many customers mix theirs with breakfast cereal, yogurt, or cold drinks.

How many calories do Royal Collagen Peptides contain?
Plus
Minus

Like the other proteins, Royal Collagen Peptides have a caloric value of4 kilocalories per gram. Fat, for example, has 9 kilocalories per gram, and alcohol has no less than 7. If you take the recommended quantity of 2.5 grams of collagen peptides daily for your skin, that amounts to only 10 kilocalories.For muscle building and body toning, the recommended 15 grams totals up to 60kilocalories. Royal Collagen Peptides can increase and prolong the feeling of being full and counteract food cravings, which makes them ideal for weight management.

Can I consume Royal Collagen Peptides when I am working out?
Plus
Minus

Yes. Inadequate collagen levels in the body make connective tissue moreprone to injury, so consuming Royal Collagen Peptides can help protect muscles,ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones.

Can I mix Royal Collagen Peptides with hot drinks?
Plus
Minus

Our Royal Collagen Peptides Proprietary Blend contains pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C, which is very sensitive to heat. The increased temperature rapidly boosts its degradation. Vitamin C is vital for the absorption of iron and the biosynthesis of collagen in the human body. That’s why we recommend consuming Royal Collagen Peptides with cold liquid, cold juice, smoothies, yogurt, cold soups, or salads.

Where do you source your Collagen Peptides?
Plus
Minus

Our collagen peptides are bovine sourced exclusively from trustedEuropean suppliers and not from multiple untraceable animal sources fromthird-world countries. Our bovines are subjected to the strictest of veterinaryinspections before being released for human consumption, ensuring that anycontamination of the final product is avoided.

Why is natural Vitamin C added to Royal Collagen Peptides?
Plus
Minus

Royal Collagen Peptides are carefully blended with a potent and completely natural form of Vitamin C. Clinical research has proven that skin health is significantly improved when taking a collagen supplement combined with Vitamin C. However, choosing the right source of Vitamin C is crucial.Clinical studies have shown that taking Vitamin C and collagen peptide supplements ensures a healthy biosynthesis of collagen within the whole body.

Where do you source your Vitamin C?
Plus
Minus

The vast majority of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) used in supplements on the market today is synthetically or artificially manufactured, often in China.Our experts opted to use a vastly superior, wholly natural, and clinically proven source known as the Red Orange Complex® from Sicily. The Red Orange Complex contains a standardized powder extract obtained from the juice of three pigmented (Moro, Tarocco, and Sanguinello) varieties ofSicilian blood oranges that are exclusively grown in a particular area nearMount Etna volcano in Sicily.

What do Sicilian Blood Oranges come from?
Plus
Minus

Sicilian Blood Oranges come from the greatest blood orange trees in the world, grow on the side of the Mount Etna volcano, where climate and soil are perfect for this kind of tree. No one else in the world has access to it. Sicilians call this orange “the ultimate healthy fruit.”

Why is Collagen Important?
Plus
Minus

It is well known that the human body consists mainly of water. Proteinsare the other major component. When referring to the heart, lungs, kidneys,liver, brain, skin, bones, and even most hormones and enzymes that areindispensable for metabolism, it is always the proteins that provide theirstructure and function. Collagen is the most abundant component in the humanbody, and therefore an essential component of human connective tissue. Thisextraordinary protein is also the central building block of the bones, joints,tendons, and many other tissues and structures.  Collagen provides a structure for the body and its many organs and keepsthem “together” in the truest sense of the word. It is present nearlyeverywhere in the body, forming and connecting moving parts, like the bones,and in turn, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments with the bones.

How many types of collagen exists?
Plus
Minus

Currently, we know of 28 different types of collagen. The human bodymainly consists of collagen types I, II, and III. Type I accounts for about 90%of the body’s total collagen content, mainly in the connective tissue of theskin, bones, and tendons. Type II accounts for joint cartilage, and type IIIaccounts for skin and muscles.

What are collagen peptides?
Plus
Minus

The body keeps itself young by breaking down old tissue and building new tissue. As we age, this process slows down. When our body breaks down collagen, these long chains are disassembled, by enzymes, into small “snippets'' for removal. This sends a signal to the body to start rebuilding. A young and healthy body reacts to build the required quantity, but as we age, our metabolism becomes weary, and these signals are no longer enough for the body, which is becoming sluggish. When we consume collagen peptides as a dietary supplement, we ingest just these collagen snippets but in more significant amounts. Our bodies are rapidly digesting and absorbing collagen, mainly in the form of the smallest units, single amino acids, but also partially in intact form as collagen peptides (collagen snippets). These collagen snippets reach the bloodstream and distribute throughout the body.  Collagen peptides stimulate our body’s collagen production. The whole connective tissue metabolism comes to life. Taking the skin as an example, it can be shown that other vital components of skin structure, such as elastin and proteoglycans, are also produced in significant quantities. The dermis, the second layer of skin, is completely overhauled. At the same time, the degradation of the skin is slowed. In total, more collagen is being built up than broken down, and it is precisely this effect that many users describe as amore attractive, firmer, radiant complexion. The balance also shifts in other tissue types such as cartilage or bone:increased formation, slower degradation. This also explains why dietary supplements cannot produce visible or tangible results instantly. Our body needs time to adapt to these processes. It is important to note one thing, collagen peptides not only affect the symptoms but also address the causes of the problems directly.

What are Specific Collagen Peptides?
Plus
Minus

We have come up with a method of cutting the snippets out of the long chain of amino acids “to size” in an exact way. Specific Collagen Peptides are optimized for different purposes and particular conditions.

What is the difference between collagen and collagen peptides?
Plus
Minus

Collagen molecules themselves are very large, so the body has difficulty using and absorbing them. Collagen peptides are obtained from collagen.Collagen peptides are collagen molecules cut smaller, allowing our body to make good use of them and their excellent bioavailability.

What does aging mean for metabolism?
Plus
Minus

When we are young, our metabolism runs at full speed, and our body cells are constantly renewing themselves. The nutrient uptake works flawlessly, and the body’s production of essential substances helps to ensure that it gets everything it needs. But as we grow older, many processes in the body change.Our entire metabolism slows down, and the untack and processing of nutrients declines. Certain tissues within the body are no longer reproduced at the required levels. Cartilage tissue wears out, bones become more porous, blood vessels calcify and stiffen, and the skin loses its ability to store moisture.These aging processes cannot be stopped. They can, however, be influenced by physical activity and a targeted diet with nutritional supplementation.

What does bioavailability mean?
Plus
Minus

The body can absorb collagen peptides efficiently because they are water-soluble and, unlike other proteins, have a straightforward peptide structure that is very easy for the body to work with. They are broken down with an enzymatic process called exogenous enzymatic hydrolysis and can be absorbed more quickly than natural collagen.

I am a vegetarian. Is there anything similar of plant origin?
Plus
Minus

There are indeed a multitude of plant-based proteins, for example, soy and hemp. However, they cannot replace collagen peptides as nutritional supplements. Our body is not made of plant origin. In purely biological terms, we are “animals,” and the collagen peptides of warm-blooded animals correspond to our body’s collagen building blocks molecular structure. This means that our body recognizes them as quasi naturally-produced proteins and can easily absorb and utilize them.

What does aging Mean?
Plus
Minus

When we are young, our metabolism runs at full speed and our body cells are constantly renewing themselves. The nutrient uptake works flawlessly, and the body’s own production of important substances also helps to ensure the body’s gets everything it needs. We are bursting with strengths and youthfulness. But as we grow older, many processes in the body change. Our entire metabolism slows down and the untack and processing of nutrients decline. Certain tissues within the body are no longer reproduced at the required levels. Cartilage tissue wears out, bones become more porous, blood vessels calcify and stiffen. The blood flow decreases, and as a result neither the tissue nor the brain is optimally provided for. The skin loses its ability to store moisture. These aging processes cannot be halted or reversed. They can, however, be influenced by physical activity and a targeted diet with nutritional supplementation.

Currently we know of 28 different types of collagen. The human body mainly consists of collagen types I, II and III. Type I accounts for about 90% of the body’s total collagen content, mainly in the connective tissue of the skin, bones, and tendons. Type II accounts for joint cartilage, and type III accounts for skin and muscles.

What are collagen peptides?

When we are young, our body is busy day and night performing renovation work. It keeps itself young by breaking down old tissue, while at the same time building new tissue to replace old. As we age, this process slows down, but it never ceases. When our body breaks down collagen, these long chains are disassembled, by enzymes, into small “snippets'' for removal. This sends a signal to the body: “Attention! Bits of degraded collagen are floating around here; we have to start rebuilding.” A young and healthy body reacts promptly to build the required quantity. As we age, our metabolism becomes weary and these signals are no longer enough for the body, which is becoming sluggish. When we consume collagen peptides as a dietary supplement, we ingest just these collagen snippets, but in larger amounts. Our bodies are rapidly digesting and absorbing collagen, mainly in the form of the smallest units, single amino acids, but also partially in intact form as collagen peptides (collagen snippets). These collagen snippets reach the bloodstream and distribute throughout the body. Now the cells in our body, which are responsible for connective tissue/collagen metabolism, notice that there is an imbalance. It is like an alarm, “Attention! There are lots of collagen particles swimming about here, now we really have to get work and make even more collagen!” As the collagen supplements provide the amino acids, building blocks for collagen synthesis at the same time, they support the body twofold. In this way, collagen peptides stimulate our body’s own collagen production. The whole connective tissue metabolism comes to life. Taking the skin as an example, it can be shown that other important components of skin structure, such as elastin and proteoglycans, are also produced in great quantities. The dermis, the second layer of skin, is, so to speak, completely overhauled. At the same time the degradation of the skin is slowed. In total, more collagen is being built up than broken down, and it is exactly this effect that many users, mostly women, describe as a more attractive, firmer, radiant complexion. The balance also shifts in other tissue types such as cartilage or bone: increased formation, slower degradation. This also explains why dietary supplements cannot produce visible or tangible results instantly disappear. Our body needs time to adapt to these processes. It is important to note one thing, collagen peptides do not only affect the symptoms, but also address the causes of the problems directly.

What are Specific Collagen Peptides?

We have invested a lot of time researching these differences and came up with a method of cutting the snippets out of the long chain of amino acids “to size’ in precisely the right way. Specific collagen peptides are optimized for different purposes, and for specific conditions.

What is the difference between collagen and collagen peptides?
Plus
Minus

Collagen molecules themselves are very large, which is why the body has difficulty in using and absorbing them. Collagen peptides are obtained from collagen. Collagen peptides are collagen molecules cut smaller allowing our body to make good use of them. Therefore, one speaks of their excellent “bioavailability”.

What does bioavailability mean?
Plus
Minus

Collagen peptides can be so well absorbed by the body because they are water-soluble, and, unlike other proteins, have a very simple peptide structure, that is very easy for the body to work with. They are “broken down”, with an enzymatic process called “exogenous enzymatic hydrolysis” and can therefore be absorbed more quickly and extensively than under natural collagen.

Why are Royal Collagen Peptides “Beauty from Within” is different from other products in the market?
Plus
Minus

The vast majority of collagen products available on the market today do not address the issue of collagen biosynthesis (the body’s ability to create its own collagen.) They combat the issue of collagen degeneration by offering a supplement that focuses on offsetting the loss. ROYAL Specific Collagen Peptides “Beauty from Within” both offset the loss & maximize stimulation of the human cell types responsible for collagen biosynthesis giving the body fuel to create collagen to improve skin, hair, nail, joints, and bone health*.

How do Royal Collagen Peptides help reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
Plus
Minus

Royal Collagen Peptides work in 2 ways: firstly, they stimulate the activity of the fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are cell types that build fibers and molecular components of the connective tissue, thus giving the skin its structure and firmness. Activating the fibroblasts encourages the production of new collagen structures as well as the ones from the hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid can bind a great deal of water and is indispensable for taut-looking skin (taut means tight, firmer). This process takes some time, but with consistency and determination, your skin regains its natural tone and improves its moisture-storing capacity. Furthermore, Royal Collagen Peptides provide the skin with the necessary “building blocks”. Their mode of action is extremely sophisticated. They perfectly resemble the fragments which form when skin collagen degrades. Our body “recognizes” the peptides as degradation products, and boosts the body’s own collagen synthesis. The result: Thanks to the considerably higher production of natural collagen, the skin can repair itself and replace what was lost through age and environmental influencers.

Why is Royal Collagen Peptides important for connective tissue?
Plus
Minus

Connective tissue includes the skin, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and joint cartilage, but also the fasciae and blood vessels.
Collagen is the main component of connective tissue and structural tissue, and is found everywhere in the body. It gives bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles strengths and flexibility. If the collagenous structures are degraded by heavy stress, for example by working out, or by the normal aging process, the function of all organs and tissues that depend on collagen are impaired. Ligaments and tendons weaken, muscle mass decreases, and above all, the loss of highly important cartilage tissue at the joints can lead to painful symptoms. Fibroblasts are cell types responsible for collagen biosynthesis in the connective tissue. They build fibers and molecular components of the connective tissue, thus giving the skin structure and firmness. Activating the fibroblasts encourages the production of new collagen structures as well as the ones from the hyaluronic acid.

Why is natural Vitamin C added to the Royal Collagen Peptides?
Plus
Minus

Royal Collagen Peptides® are carefully blended with a potent & completely natural form of vitamin C. Vitamin C is necessary for the biosynthesis of collagen in the human body. When collagen is produced, there is a complex series of events, some occurring inside of the cell, and some outside of the cell. Vitamin C is active inside of the cell, where it hydroxylates (adds hydrogen and oxygen) to two amino acids: proline and lysine. This helps form a precursor molecule called procollagen that is later packaged and modified into collagen outside of the cell. Without vitamin C, collagen formation is disrupted, causing a wide variety of problems throughout the body.
Clinical research has proven that skin health is significantly improved when taking a collagen supplement combined with Vitamin C. However, choosing the right source of Vitamin C is CRUCIAL. Clinical studies have shown that taking vitamin C along with collagen peptides supplements ensure a healthy biosynthesis of collagen within the whole body.

Why is Astaxanthin added to the Royal Collagen Peptides?

1. Reduce Inflammation. From Haematococcus Pluvias Algae to reduce inflammation and restart collagen-producing cells. Astaxanthin is the most potent antioxidant known in nature. Your skin is under constant attack by free radicals, and astaxanthin acts as a defender to preserve collagen production, and lock in the increased elasticity and hydration. A group of 150 healthy women aged 20-55 supplemented with Astaxanthin over six separate studies.* The women taking Astaxanthin demonstrated an 18% improvement in viscoelasticity and 17x increase in skin hydration over the placebo group after just four weeks. Additionally, skin smoothness improved 16%, and age spots were reduced by an average of 3mm in only eight weeks.

2. Boost collagen production with Specific Collagen Peptides. From highly purified collagen peptides to stimulate fibroblasts, reduce wrinkles, and improve overall skin tone. Bruno MD collagen peptides begin with an organic, non-GMO, halal, and kosher certified bovine source, raised exclusively on a plant-based diet by European partners near the Alps. The EU prohibits ranchers from breeding genetically modified bovines or using GMO feed, unlike farmers in the farmers in the US and Brazil. Three clinical trials* conducted on 250 healthy females, ages 45 to 65, confirm that oral intake of Royal Collagen Specific Peptides Complex significantly reduced eye wrinkle volume by 20.1% on average and up to a maximum of $49.9% vs. the placebo group after only eight weeks of treatment.

3. Maximize collagen biosynthesis with Red Orange Complex from varieties of Moro, Sanguinello, and Tarocco orange extract to encourage collagen formation and boost the immune system with potent Natural Vitamin C. We harvest our Vitamin C from three varieties of blood orange grown for centuries on family farms near Mt. Etna volcano. This mineral rich soil creates citrus so dense in flavonoids and Vitamin C that the Romans called it “the miracle of Madre Terra”.

4. Lock in hydration with Hyaluronic Acid. From natural fermentation process which significantly increases skin plumpness, moisture, and glow. Hyaluronic Acid is a sponge that keeps our skin hydrated. Our Hyaluronic Acid is made with organic fermentation and is clinically proven to help reduce wrinkles, smooth skin texture, and deeply hydrate skin cells. A group of 120 healthy women aged 35-60 with dry and sagging skin or wrinkles around their outer canthus supplemented with Bruno MD low molecular weight hyaluronic acid for six weeks and significantly increased skin moisture content and improved the facial aging symptoms such as luster and suppleness. Also, the group showed better levels of the sulcus volume ratio, wrinkle area ratio, and wrinkle volume ration than the placebo group.

Where do you source natural Astaxanthin from?
Plus
Minus

Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring pigment that gives the reddish pink color to marine organisms such as crabs, shrimp, and salmon. It is often called the “King of Carotenoids” because of its powerful antioxidant potency. Astaxanthin also possesses a unique molecular structure that spans the cell membrane’s hydrophilic and hydrophobic layers, attracting and quenching free radicals. Our natural Astaxanthin is derived from a wholly natural source, the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis, and contains the same form of astaxanthin found in wild salmon. Our natural astaxanthin is produced in Japan and Sweden.

Astaxanthin is made by the algae Haematoccous pluvialis in response to stresses that produce free radicals. Astaxanthin is called a “secondary carotenoid” because algae make it using beta-carotene as one of the starting materials for making astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is fat-loving organic hydrocarbon with the chemical formula C40H52O4. It has a central chain of carbons with alternating single and double bonds (also known as conjugated double bonds), which is a special structure that allows astaxanthin to neutralize free radicals. The oxygen-containing rings at each end of the astaxanthin molecule fit on the edges of cell membranes, giving astaxanthin the unique ability to span the whole membrane for full protection from free radical damage.

How do you make natural Astaxanthin?
Plus
Minus

Our natural astaxanthin is only produced indoors in a clean, controlled environment where the air is filtered through hospital grade HEPA filters and use only triple, reverse osmosis purified water. While others produce their astaxanthin outdoors, this does not allow much control over the environment, which can cause the quality of the astaxanthin produced to be compromised. Strict manufacturing processes allow our strategic business partner to control the light, water, air, and nutrients, and therefore to produce the cleanest, and most stable natural astaxanthin in the world.

There are indeed a multitude of plant-based proteins, for example, soy and hemp. However, they cannot replace collagen peptides, as nutritional supplements. The explanation is quite simple, our body itself is not made of plant origin. In purely biological terms, we are, we are also “animals”- the collagen peptides of warm-blooded animals correspond to our body’s own collagen building blocks in their molecular structure. Our body recognizes them as quasi naturally produced proteins and can easily absorb and utilize them.

I suffer from various food allergies. Do your collagen peptides trigger allergies?
Plus
Minus

Collagen peptides are considered non-allergic. Their structure is very similar to that of the body’s own natural collagen. For that reason, collagen peptides are not regarded as a foreign substance that must be combated, even in a very sensitive immune system. This is why medical sponges made of collagen are used in surgical procedures. For example, a surgeon uses them in the body to stop bleeding and leaves them in place so that they can continue to regulate the blood flow; even after the operation. The surgeon simply sutures the incision, and the sponges are simply absorbed and degraded in the body just in few weeks without any reactions occurring. Nevertheless, if you suffer from allergies, we recommend you consult your healthcare professional before taking this product.

I do not like protein drinks. Do Royal Collagen Peptides taste the same?

What is Natural Astaxanthin, and why is it a key ingredient in your formula?
Plus
Minus

Our astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid derived from the microalgae “Haematococcus Pluvialis” found in temperate environments worldwide. Astaxanthin has a unique molecular structure that makes it hundreds of times more potent than any other antioxidant molecule. For this reason, Astaxanthin is often called "The King of Antioxidants." As well as being the most powerful antioxidant known to science, Astaxanthin also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It can span the entire lipid bilayer of the cell membrane, thus providing superior protection from the inside out. 

Studies have shown that natural Astaxanthin may provide significant protection to the mitochondria, preventing muscle damage. 

Over 50 human studies, including 23 double-blind, placebo-controlled trials with more than 1,400 participants undergoing treatments lasting from 2 weeks to 6 months, have been performed.

Research has shown that natural Astaxanthin is a potent anti-inflammatory and is particularly effective against chronic inflammation.

Is Astaxanthin good for enhancing the immune system response?
Plus
Minus

Our immune system is a complex network of specialized cells and organs that work together to protect the body against infections from bacteria, viruses, and other outside invaders. With age, the activity of the immune system declines and becomes more vulnerable to oxidative stress. The most pronounced decline is found in cell-mediated immune response, especially a decline in the proliferation capacity in T-lymphocytes. 

B cell phagocytes are cells that ingest and destroy harmful pathogens such as bacteria and viruses, while T cell lymphocytes assist antibody release, destroying virus-infected cells and helping to remember and recognize previous invaders. 

Clinical results have shown that Natural Astaxanthin seems to increase the count of these two major components of the immune response (the B lymphocytes and the T phagocytes.)

We use a variety of Echinacea Angustifolia (or Coneflower) root extract to create Echinacea Angustifolia Phytosome. The benefits of Coneflower can be traced back to the Native Americans who used it as a natural anti-inflammatory. Bruno MD’s strict agricultural controls guarantee plants high in polysaccharides with very low cross-contamination between Echinacea species. Echinacea Angustifolia Phytosome is optimized for maximum absorption.

Results in clinical trials conducted using our triple-standardized Echinacea Phytosome, have shown a statistically significant tendency to be more efficacious than flu vaccination alone, suggesting that E. Phytosome has the potential to act synergistically with influenza vaccination.

What is Inflammation?
Plus
Minus

Inflammation is a buzzword that really means stress. Bruising and swelling, for example, are signs that inflammation is tending to an injury. But when inflammation doesn’t turn off, this long-term stress can lead to serious health problems.

How does the immune system work?
Plus
Minus

The immune system is made up of two armies of cells; innate and acquired. Innate immune cells are the body's first line of defense. They quickly respond to foreign cells to fight infection, battle a virus or defend the body against bacteria. Our acquired immunity—also called adaptive immunity—uses T-cells and B-cells when invading organisms slip through that first line. These cells take longer to develop because their behaviors evolve from learned experiences, but they tend to live longer than innate cells. Adaptive immune cells remember foreign invaders after their first encounter and fight them off the next time they enter the body. This is the fundamental premise for how vaccines work—using a small, harmless amount of protein from a disease to allow the immune system to recognize that protein if the pathogen were to invade the body.

B-cells and T-cells are also called lymphocytes. "There are primary and secondary lymphoid organs involved in the complex development of lymphocytes,” says Pamela Crilley, DO, Chair of the Department of Medical Oncology at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA). “The primary lymphoid tissues in the initial generation of B- and T-lymphocytes are the bone marrow and the thymus.”

B-cells fight bacteria and viruses by making Y-shaped proteins called antibodies, which are specific to each pathogen and are able to lock onto the surface of an invading cell and mark it for destruction by other immune cells. 

What do T-cells do?
Plus
Minus

There are two main types of T-cells; helper T-cells and killer T-cells. Helper T-cells stimulate B-cells to make antibodies and help killer cells develop. Killer T-cells directly kill cells that have already been infected by a foreign invader. T-cells also use cytokines as messenger molecules to send chemical instructions to the rest of the immune system to ramp up its response.

While both are critical to the body's defense against disease and infection, T-cells and B-cells play very different roles.

Why is it important to boost your immune system, and how can I protect my immune system?
Plus
Minus

Our body’s ability to fight infection and disease depends on our immune systems. The immune system is comprised of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect your body from illness and infection.

Since the immune system is not just a single entity, there isn’t a single food that you can eat or add to your diet to support it. The best way to keep your immune system running smoothly is to follow healthy living strategies that include.

Good Nutrition 
Good nutrition is vital to supporting a healthy immune system. Follow a plant-based, heart-healthy menu that incorporates a variety of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats. Eat small, frequent meals throughout the day to stay energized and ensure your body is getting enough calories, proteins, and nutrients. 

Phytochemicals 
Fruits, vegetables, and other plants contain a naturally occurring compound known as phytochemicals (or phytonutrients). Phytochemicals refer to a variety of compounds that give fruits and vegetables their color and flavor. Studies show that phytochemicals support the:

Immune system
Creation of healthy cells
Death of damaged cells. Phytochemicals also act as antioxidants to protect the body from damage.

Dietary Supplements 
Dietary supplements help you get adequate amounts of essential nutrients if you don’t eat a nutritious variety of foods or if these nutrients cannot be taken from the food itself. However, make sure to always take dietary supplements that follow the highest standard quality control process. The FDA has established good manufacturing practices (GMPs) that companies must follow to help ensure the identity, purity, strength, and composition of their dietary supplements. These GMPs can prevent adding the wrong ingredient (or too much or too little of the correct ingredient) and reduce the chance of contamination or improper packaging and labeling of a product. The FDA periodically inspects facilities that manufacture supplements.

Lifestyle 
Change your lifestyle to help support your health and immunity.

Get Enough Sleep 
Sleep is an essential aspect of health. Our bodies need sleep to recharge and heal. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that adults get seven hours or more of sleep every night. 

Minimize Stress 
Stress can also take a toll on the immune system. In many ways, mental health can also affect your physical health. Try to reduce stress by taking time to do things you enjoy, such as spending time with family, spending time outdoors, or reading. If your feelings of anxiety or depression make it difficult for you to complete daily tasks, talk to your healthcare professional.

Exercise Regularly 
Leading an active lifestyle can also support your immune system by promoting good circulation, allowing the cells and substances of the immune system to move through the body freely and do their job efficiently. Regular exercise promotes good cardiovascular (heart) health, too. The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) recommends getting at least 150 minutes of moderate activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity a week. Physical activity includes walking, jogging, swimming, biking, playing sports, etc. Include strength training and stretching along with aerobic exercise to build muscle and increase flexibility.

Enjoy Life 
Enjoy family, entertaining old friends, and making new ones; turn the simplest occasion into a social gathering for the entire neighborhood.

Plus
Minus

Ketorex has multiple benefits and will help you live a healthy life andaccomplish your desired health goals.

Some of the benefits and characteristics of Ketorex:

Super Fuel
Our 9 in 1 Ketorex BHB + Avocado Oil Ketogenic Blend is a “super fuel”for high performance in everyday life. Blood ketone levels rise higher and are sustained longer than BHB or avocado oil powder alone.

A powerful blend of carefully selected clinically proven ingredients imported from Italy

Our Ketorex Proprietary Phytosome Complex contains caffeine-free, catechin extract from green tea, the most potent polyphenols, made from olive fruits native to Southern Italy (Puglia), and specific standardized extracts ofItalian White Kidney Beans.

Made with Avocado Oil Extract
Avocado is a superfood rich in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folate, potassium, and healthy fats. Avocado fruit can help with satiety, digestion, and absorption of other ingredients and is great for eye health, being rich in both zeaxanthin and lutein.

Formulated with Phytosome Technology
All these ingredients are formulated with Phytosome Technology. Phytosomes optimize absorption, and consequently, the bioavailability of active ingredients.

No caffeine, no sugar, no gluten
100% vegan, low-carb, and paleo-friendly. Ketorex has the highest quality BHB + Avocado Oil Ketogenic blend and is guilt-free.

Convenient, easily miscible, and delicious
Ketorex mixes well and is available in three flavors: Mojito, Pina Colada, and Margarita.

How should I take Ketorex?
Plus
Minus

We recommend adding 1 scoop to a minimum of 16 fluid ounces of cold waterand mix well. Ketorex tastes delicious when mixed with water alone and can beconsumed on an empty stomach at any time of the day. Do not exceed 3 servingsper day.

What does the term “formulated by a powerful blend of clinically proven ingredients” mean?
Plus
Minus

This means that any advertised health benefit or claim relating to the clinically proven ingredients can be substantiated by randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, and published clinical trials. Our company develops all our products using our experience as a pharmaceutical company and subjects the natural ingredients we use to the same scrutiny as our prescription-grade formulations.

Where is the product made, and is it from natural ingredients?
Plus
Minus

Ketorex is made in the USA with carefully selected, clinically proven ingredients from the USA, Italy, and other countries.

Will I lose weight?
Plus
Minus

Ketorex is not a weight loss supplement. Ketorex has exogenous ketones that help the body into ketosis (a state where the body uses fat rather than glucose for energy). The powerful blend of clinically proven ingredients in Ketorex works as an appetite suppressant and promotes more weight loss than dieting alone. Our recommendation is to use Ketorex in conjunction with a diet and lifestyle designed for weight loss.

Is Ketorex safe?
Plus
Minus

Absolutely. Bruno MD adheres to a strict set of processes to ensure every product we sell has the right potency, composition, purity, and quality of ingredients. Safety is our number one priority.

Beyond Bruno MD’s own set of standards, we follow all industry regulations. Many people believe that the supplement industry is unregulated ,but that is simply not true. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)carefully regulates the manufacturing processes, safety of ingredients, and marketing practices for all nutritional supplements. In addition, a number of independent organizations have set up additional quality and testing standards that exceed FDA standards. Bruno MD is active in several of these programs and follows standards that often go well beyond what is required.

As with any dietary supplement, consult your doctor before using this product if you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medication, or under medical supervision.

Will Ketorex give me stomach problems?
Plus
Minus

We use the highest quality beta-hydroxybutyrate ketone esters blended to minimize any GI problems. If you experience issues, reduce your use to a ¼ or ½ scoop and increase the amount you take gradually to what’s comfortable for you.

Why did Ketorex make my stomach hurt?
Plus
Minus

Transitioning to ketosis can be dehydrating and lead to initial stomachissues before the body adapts. Taking exogenous ketones accelerates thetransition to ketosis, and therefore accelerates transitional side effects. Ourrecommendations are to start with a ¼ to ½ scoop of ketones at first andhydrate and replenish electrolytes frequently.

When should I take Ketorex?
Plus
Minus

This can vary from person to person. However, most people can take Ketorex at any time of the day and on an empty stomach. To gain the maximum benefit, we recommend taking the product as per the guidelines below:

- In the morning or afternoon, for energy and a mental lift

- Before and during exercise for physical energy

- As a tool to help get into ketosis after eating a non-ketogenic diet

- Do not exceed 3 serving per day

You can take Ketorex up to 3 times daily and add multiple scoops. Most people find it best to start slowly and then work upwards to find the most beneficial level for you.

What does Ketorex taste like, and does it completely dissolve?
Plus
Minus

Ketorex is made from all-natural products and tastes great. If mixed thoroughly, the powder becomes completely dissolved.

How should I store Ketorex?
Plus
Minus

Store at 15–30°C (59–86°F). Store in a cool, dry place. Protect from heat, light, and moisture. Keep out of reach of children.

Why do you use Avocado Oils Extract?
Plus
Minus

Ketorex Proprietary Ketogenic Blend

Avocado is an essential component and ideal for individuals following a ketogenic or low-carb, high-fat diet. Avocado is a superfood overflowing with goodness, rich in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folate, potassium, and healthy fats. This potent fruit can help reduce hunger cravings, aid in digestion and absorption of other ingredients, and contains zeaxanthin and lutein, which help protect your eyesight.

What is BHB Salts Beta-Hydroxybutyrate?
Plus
Minus

BHB or beta-hydroxybutyrate does support substantial fat loss, but weight loss is only one benefit. Bruno MD BHB is delivered with Phytosome technology. When combined with the healthful fats in our Avocado Oil Powder, you get 100% food-grade composition and the highest bioavailability. Some people experience increased mental clarity, fewer cravings, and more energy during their day. In addition, Ketorex will help reduce oxidative stress,promote healthy inflammation response, and support organ health.

What does Green Tea Extract Phytosome do?

What is L-Tyrosine?
Plus
Minus

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that supports energy, mental focus, and clarity and improves mood and stress response to keep you feeling positive and goal-centric.

Is Ketosis Dangerous?
Plus
Minus

No. It is keto acidosis, not ketosis, that is dangerous. These are two completely different metabolic states. If you don’t have uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis should not cause a problem for you.

How do I test my ketone levels?
Plus
Minus

There are 3 main ways to test your ketone levels: urine strips, breathmeters, and blood testing monitors.

Urine tests do not report the number of ketones in your blood. They arelimited, as they only show the increased number of ketones in the urine(acetoacetate), not the presence of D-B-hydroxybutyrate. As a result, urinetests are inaccurate.

Breath meters specifically measure the amount of acetone excreted inbreath, providing readings that only relate well to blood ketone levels at lowconcentrations. As a result, breath testing is inaccurate.

The most reliable and accurate way to test ketone levels is with a blood monitor, like the Bruno MD6 multifunctional monitoring system sold on our site.Devices like this will allow you to test your ketones and glucose level with extreme accuracy. Our Bruno MD6 meter can show a detailed, real-time microscopic view of the makeup of ketones in your blood. You will know how much acetoacetate is in your system, and more importantly, the BoHB level. BoHB is commonly called D-B-hydroxybutyrate and is the critical ketone body that your body converts to fuel for the brain and muscles.

Why are my urine strip results not showing high ketone levels?
Plus
Minus

There are several possibilities here. The most common are:

- Although the body is in ketosis, ithas become efficient at using fat and ketones as a fuel source, and thereforevery few ketones are being excreted in the urine. In this instance, the urinetest becomes unreliable and ultimately inaccurate.

- The body is not in ketosis. This could be due to excess carbohydrate or protein intake, or perhaps the body is still transitioning away from glucose.

Can children use your products?
Plus
Minus

No. We do not recommend it. Our supplements are designed for the specific needs of adults, using clinical research and safety data for adults, not children. We recommend that children and teens meet their dietary needs by eating a well-balanced diet.

How are dietary supplements regulated?
Plus
Minus

All supplements fall under the FDA, which regulates their production, marketing, and sale.

- All manufacturing facilities are regularly inspected by the FDA and must adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices(GMPs), covering everything from verifying raw materials to product testing and labeling.

- All marketing claims made by the manufacturer are closely monitored to make sure no product claims to cure or treat any disease or its symptoms.

- Any new ingredient must be submitted to the FDA for review and approval before it can be used in a supplement.

- If an ingredient is thought to be harmful, the FDA must decide if a) safety warnings need to be included on the label, or b) the ingredient should be banned and taken off the market.

Why is it important to take CholestQ10 for your heart health?
Plus
Minus

Worldwide, heart-related diseases are at an all-time high. While many countries offer programs to help individuals reduce their cholesterol and blood pressure levels, these efforts simply cannot overcome the effects of poor diet and nutrition.

Why should I buy my cholesterol supplement from Bruno MD?
Plus
Minus

What is CholestQ10 proprietary phytosome complex?
Plus
Minus

It is a powerful combination of clinically proven ingredients that have been validated in more than 120 double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. It has also been proven to have long-term high tolerability in an 18-month clinical trial.

What’s in CholestQ10’s Proprietary Phytosome Complex?
Plus
Minus

CholestQ10’s formula contains clinically proven flavonoid phytosomes: Bergamot Orange extract (Citrus Bergamia), Turmeric Extract (Curcuma Longa), and Coenzyme Q10. 

What is Bergamot Orange Extract (Citrus Bergamia)?
Plus
Minus

We use a variety called Citrus Bergamia Risso et Poiteau, an endemicplant of the Calabrian region of Southern Italy. Bergamot Phytosome isclinically proven to protect against cardiovascular issues by supporting healthy cholesterol levels. It also helps govern metabolic conditions that increase the risk of heart disease and TYPE II diabetes. Bergamot Phytosome optimizesthe biological absorption of polyphenols, which are normally characterized by poor solubility in both water and organic solvents. Our Citrus Bergamia is the green “gold standard” for heart health. 

Bergamot Orange Extract is acitrus fruit. Bergamot Orange Extract (Citrus Bergamia) is hand-harvested in Calabria. 

What is Turmeric (Curcuma Phytosome)?
Plus
Minus

It is a distinctive yellow spice, part of the ginger family(Zingiberaceae), used for thousands of years in Southeast Asia, China, andIndia for cooking and medicinal uses. Advances in modern medicine have revealed curcumin to be the key ingredient responsible for turmeric's activities andtherapeutic properties. It has been used for thousands of years as a “masterswitch” for addressing the natural inflammation response function. Our CurcuminPhytosome is clinically proven by 35 randomized, double-blind,placebo-controlled, published clinical trials.

Curcumin Phytosome works through multiple pathways and on more than onetarget to promote a normal inflammatory response, boost immune response, and help reduce exercise-related pain. It is delivered with Phytosome technology. The extract has been standardized, and it contains the full bouquet ofcurcuminoids, not just curcumin. (Curcuminoids are polyphenolic pigments andinclude 77% curcumin). Curcumin Phytosome is the #1 doctors’ recommended Curcumin, and it has been endorsed by the Cleveland Clinic.

With Curcumin Phytosome, the level of bioavailability, absorption,modality, and tolerability over time make our product compatible andappropriate to the permanent role of “Life Guardian” over the levels of chronic inflammation during the entire course of life.

Our Curcumin Phytosome is sourced from India.

Our Coenzyme Q10 Phytosome is sourced in Lombardia, Italy.

Why do you use natural Vitamin E (as d-alpha-tocopherol succinate)?
Plus
Minus

Both natural-sourced Vitamin E and synthetic Vitamin E are absorbed in the body. However, after absorption, a specific transport protein in the liverknown as RRR-alpha-Tocopherol Transport Protein (α-TTP) recognizes the naturald-alpha-tocopherol acetate. It gives it priority over the synthetic form. The unrecognized form of synthetic Vitamin E is preferentially excreted. Vitamin Ein natural form is retained better and longer in the body when compared to thesynthetic form. As a result, Vitamin E natural Tocopherol is more efficientlyused by the body than its synthetic counterpart and has higher bioavailability.

Why did you combine Coenzyme Q10 and natural Vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol)?
Plus
Minus

Together they are a heart-healthy duo that stays active in the body longer and creates a paving shield to protect proteins, LDL cholesterol, and mitochondrial DNA against the oxidative damage that leads to heart disease.

What is Cardoon Leaf Extract (Cynara Cardunculus)?
Plus
Minus

Farmers have grown an artichoke called the Cardoon in Sicily. Bruno MDscientists discovered that the active biophenols and flavonoids from an endemicvariety of Cardoon leaf (Cynara Cardunculus L. Var. altilis DC and scolymus) are among the most potent found in nature.

What is in your Bluerex Vision proprietary complex?
Plus
Minus

Bluerex Vision proprietary complex is a powerful combination of clinically proven ingredients verified through more than 130 double-blind studies. Ingredients include Bilberry Extract, Natural Vitamin E(d-alpha-tocopherol), Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), Natural Astaxanthin, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin

What are Lutein & Zeaxanthin?
Plus
Minus

Our Lutein & Zeaxanthin combo is clinically proven to protect the back of your eyes. These all-natural compounds are harvested from marigold flowers and dramatically increase the macular pigments critical to filtering harmful blue light before it can damage your retina. Lutein & Zeaxanthinare clinically proven partners to help reduce the progression of certain eye issues throughout our lives.

Why do we need Lutein & Zeaxanthin?
Plus
Minus

Lutein & Zeaxanthin are not made by the human body and must come from the food we eat. Most people do not eat enough Lutein & Zeaxanthinthrough their diet and need to fill the gap with dietary supplements. Hundreds of studies have shown that nutritional supplements containing Lutein & Zeaxanthin help keep eyes healthy, improve visual performance, and reduce the progression of certain eye conditions as we age.

How do Lutein & Zeaxanthin work?
Plus
Minus

Lutein & Zeaxanthin work as light filters and antioxidants in the eye. Lutein primarily accumulates where rods are the dominant photoreceptors. Rods allow for low light vision, sensitive motion detection, and peripheralvision. Zeaxanthin primarily accumulates where cones are the dominant photoreceptors. Cones allow for color and the ability to see the contrast between two objects. Working together, Zeaxanthin & Lutein absorb a broader bandwidth of blue light from digital devices, LED lights, and sunlight than either alone. Both support the back of the eye and help filter harmful bluelight, and improve night vision and contrast sensitivity.

What does Astaxanthin do?
Plus
Minus

Studies have shown Astaxanthin to increase ciliary muscle recovery andendurance. Additionally, it improves capillary blood flow and blood rheology.

What is Natural Astaxanthin?
Plus
Minus

Our Natural Astaxanthin is clinically proven to help shield the front of your eyes: it’s nature’s most potent antioxidant, sourced from special algae called Haematococcus Pluvialis found in temperate regions around the world. The microalgae accumulate astaxanthin in lipid vesicles during periods of nutrient deficiency and environmental stress. Because Haematococcus Pluvialis often grows in places exposed to intense sunlight during its dormant phase,astaxanthin functions to protect the cell nucleus against free radicals generated by UV radiation and strengthen the eye muscles, to reduce eye fatigue that contributes to Computer Vision Syndrome.

Why is Astaxanthin known as a Mitochondrial Nutrient?
Plus
Minus

Astaxanthin is perfectly designed to protect the mitochondria. It protects the inner part of the membrane made by lipids that flows into the center and protects the outside of the membrane made up of hydrophilic protein molecules. Antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and beta carotene can’t do the same job. They don’t have the right shape, the right length, or the rightamphiphilic (compounds possessing both hydrophilic (water-loving, polar) and lipophilic(fat-loving) properties), qualities that allows astaxanthin to both span the hydrophobic center of the membrane and anchor in the hydrophilic molecules. In other words, Bluerex Vision’s Astaxanthin has the ability to span the entirelipid bilayer of the cell membrane, thus providing superior protection from the inside out. 

Why does Astaxanthin have the most powerful anti-aging molecule?
Plus
Minus

Astaxanthin has the purest antioxidant molecule because it has no pro-oxidant activity (natural antioxidants can act as pro-oxidants, whichproduce free radicals and cause DNA damage and mutagenesis) even when subjected to an enormous amount of stress from environmental factors and free radicals.

Why is Astaxanthin the strongest singlet-oxygen quencher among the anti-aging molecules?
Plus
Minus

Bluerex Vision’s Astaxanthin is more potent than other antioxidants when combating singlet oxygen damage for eye health. Singlet oxygens are active oxygen species generated in human skin by exposure to ultraviolet radiation(UV) that causes eye damage. To give you a measure of the potency of ourproduct, Bluerex Vision’s Astaxanthin is 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin Cand 3,000 times stronger than Resveratrol. 

Why Bluerex Vision’s Astaxanthin is superior to the astaxanthin used in other supplements?
Plus
Minus

We only use Natural Astaxanthin extracted from the algae Haematococcus Pluvialis because this particular astaxanthin extract is the most potent form of astaxanthin. Most other products opt to use a cheaper synthetic alternative. The main issue with using this synthetic option is that it has a different molecular profile to natural astaxanthin. While the only clinical study on synthetic astaxanthin indicates it may have some health benefits, little clinical research has been done to measure its effectiveness compared to natural astaxanthin. Some research even suggests that Natural Astaxanthin is 20 to 60 times more potent than its synthetic variant. Very few products on the market today use Natural Astaxanthin extracted from the algae H. Pluvialis.

We cultivate our astaxanthin using proprietary indoor, state-of-the-art photobioreactors, using triple-filtered water and air to eliminate contaminants such as bugs, pollution, and weather. For other brands, cultivation is not conducted indoors and is often subject to contamination.

Our Natural Astaxanthin is extracted at full maturity and is chlorophyll-free. Chlorophyll can interfere with the stability of astaxanthin. Certain products in other brands contain chlorophyll which can interfere with the stability of astaxanthin.

Our Natural Astaxanthin is cultivated using sustainable energy sources that minimize energy and water loss due to evaporation and space while protecting against environmental pollutants.

Why does Bluerex Vision contain Bilberry extracts (Vaccinium myrtillus)?
Plus
Minus

Bilberry extracts (Vaccinium myrtillus) are extracted from a fruitcalled ‘Vaccinium Myrtillus,’ grown in the north of central Europe. 

This humble berry packs a potent compound of plant pigments calledanthocyanins shown to promote healthy tear secretion, improve vision, increase retinal sensitivity (including night vision), and may help prevent common eye issues as we mature. More than 50 positive studies, including at least 25 controlled or double-blind studies, have validated the efficacy of vascular health in Bluerex Vision‘s bilberry extract. 

Why does Bluerex Vision contain Natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol)?
Plus
Minus

Our Vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol) is a select type of natural and pure Vitamin E shown to help neutralize oxidative damage that leads to age-related vision problems and help subjects with moderate age-related macular degeneration. The nutrients reduced the risk of developing advanced age-related macular degeneration by 25% for subjects who already demonstrated early signs of macular degeneration.

Our Vitamin E in natural form is retained better and for a longer time in the body when compared to its synthetic counterpart. As a result, Natural Vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol) is more efficiently used by the body than its synthetic counterpart and has higher bioavailability.

What is Docosahexaenoic Acid?
Plus
Minus

Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid(PUFA) found throughout the body. It is a primary structural fat found in the brain and eye, accounting for up to 97% of the total omega-3 fats in the brain and up to 93% of the omega-3 fats in the retina. It is also a key component ofthe heart. Numerous research studies confirm that everyone, from infants to adults to the elderly, can benefit from a regular intake of dietary DHA. DHAaccounts for up to 97% of the total omega-3 fats in the brain. Our DHA is anutritional oil derived from the marine alga, Schizochytrium sp., a rich source of Omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) with rosemary extract (flavoring). It is vegetarian and provides essential brain, eye, and heart health benefits and contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.

Our Docosahexaenoic Acid is sourced in the United States.

What are the causes of eye fatigue?
Plus
Minus

When ciliary muscle fatigue, they can cause asthenopia or accommodation failure, and poor blood flow struggles to support a metabolically active organ.

What is Blue Light?
Plus
Minus

High energy blue light can damage our eyes. It is a component of visible light that we are exposed to it without even realizing it. Blue Light is not easily filtered by our eyes, and over exposure can negatively impact vision.

Nearly every source of light—whether natural or artificial—emits harmful blue light. Over the last few years, the increasing use of technology anddigital devices means people are subjecting themselves to higher levels of BlueLight and risking harm to their eyes.

Who is affected by Blue Light?
Plus
Minus

Everyone who is exposed to digital devices. 60% of Americans use digital devices more than 5 hours daily; 75% of Americans use digital devices in the hour before going to sleep; 70% of Americans use 2 or more digital devices at the same time; 75% of those people report experiencing symptoms of ComputerVision Syndrome. Additionally, 33% of children use devices more than 3 hours daily; 87% of millennials use 2 or more devices simultaneously; 37% of millennials use devices more than 9 hours daily. 

Does Blue Light exposure have short-term effects?
Plus

Yes, it does have short-term effects such as headaches, eye strain, blurred vision, eye fatigue, and dry eye.

Does Blue Light exposure have long-term effects?
Plus
Minus

Yes, it does have long-term effects such as retinal damage, reduced visual performance, poor glare recovery, and age-related eye conditions.

What is Computer Vision Syndrome?
Plus
Minus

In today’s world, every human being is taking advantage of technology. Technology is everywhere. We are glued to multiple digital devices; screens, phones, tablets, computers, and television. Studies have shown that over a third of adults spend more than half their day using technology, while others have admitted that their technology usage consumes 10–12 hours of their time per day. Adults aren’t the only ones being affected, as kids are becoming more involved with devices and other forms of technology at home and in the classroom. 50-90% of digital device users suffer Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain symptoms.

What are common symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or digital eye strain?
Plus
Minus

- 33% report experiencing eye strain 

- 23% report experiencing dry eyes 

- 22% report experiencing blurred vision

Why is this happening to your eyes?
Plus
Minus

The eyes are naturally at rest with a view distance of 20 feet away, but by using a phone, tablet, or computer, they are generally 18-24 inches away. This causes a prolonged contraction of ciliary muscles, increasing ROS/free radicals and stressing the eyes. Ciliary muscles spasm to adjust to close proximity viewing—the eyes fatigue, resulting in blurred vision and headaches.

What is the role of the ciliary muscle in the eye?
Plus
Minus

Ciliary muscles adjust lens thickness to change the eye’s focal length. Ciliary muscle provides near point of focus, depth perception, positive accommodation speed, and accommodation amplitude.

What is an example of ciliary muscle function?
Plus
Minus

Ciliary muscles can contract, rounding the lens and allow you to focuson near objects. Additionally, ciliary muscles can relax, flattening the lensand enable you to focus on distant objects.

What is accommodation of the eye?
Plus
Minus

Accommodation is defined as the ability of the eye to change its focusfrom distant to near objects (and vice versa). A human eye can change focus from distance infinity to 7cm in 350 milliseconds. This dramatic change in focal power occurs as a consequence of reduction in the zonular tension induced by the ciliary muscle. Put simply, the circular ciliary muscles inside the eyes contract to focus on near subjects and relax to focus on distant subjects. During a long computer session, the eyes exert substantial energy to focus on the computer screen; therefore, vision can be temporarily blurred after a long computer session.

Why should I care about my Mitochondrial health?
Plus
Minus

We should care because healthier mitochondria result in better nourishment for the organelle that fuels all cell activity in the body. Also,an organism’s longevity is directly correlated to the amount of free radical damage created within the mitochondria. Without your mitochondria producing enough Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP), every activity in your body would cease. ATP is a high-energy molecule that stores the energy we need to do just about everything we do. Our mitochondria produce the energy of life. For this reason, we need to secure more antioxidant protection from our diet to supplement the defenses our body makes.
