All Sun Coast Sciences formulas are carefully designed by Dr. Steven Sisskind, to ensure clinical dosing, of the best ingredients, with superior bioavailability. In VitaCell+™, you'll find...
With over 23 clinical studies behind it, this curcumin stands alone. One double-blind, placebo-controlled study showed that adults had better working memory, and lower fatigue, anger and confusion, just one hour after taking it! A second clinical study - also double-blind, and placebo-controlled - showed very similar results at the four week mark… showing that these astounding results can last.
CherryPure Tart Cherry Extract
This potent flavonoid has proven inflammatory-balance properties. In one study, weight lifters who trained with CherryPure were stronger, and less sore, following their workouts. Another study showed that endurance athletes who ran a half-marathon performed 13% faster and reported a 34% reduction in post-race soreness. If CherryPure delivers these benefits to athletes, imagine what it can do for you!
Out of the top 1,000 flavonoid-rich foods, cocoa contains the highest amount of flavonoids per milligram. The specific flavonoids found in cocoa work by supporting healthy, balanced production of an inflammatory protein called Interleukin 1-Beta.
Boswellia has been shown to regulate production of an inflammatory cytokine called TNF-alpha, through pathways that other flavonoids are unable to regulate. It’s also been shown to support neurons as the brain gets older, and to promote feelings and calm and wellbeing.
A potent flavonoid that promotes, healthy, balanced levels of IL-6, and TNF-a, two "troublemaker" cytokines that can lead to an overactive inflammatory response.
This flavonoid is produced by grapes, to protect them from harsh sunlight, and is most often found in red wine. Multiple studies have shown that it support healthy, balanced production of an inflammatory cytokine called NF-kB.
It's the best source of a flavonoid called a “catechin,” which supports everything from detoxification, to targeted immune response management, to the release of natural energy stores.
