Magnesium

  • Involved in over 300 biochemical processes in the body. One of its most important functions is that it plays a key role is producing energy.
  • Magnesium is important for all cellular functions and processes. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm regular, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong.
  • Its wide range of health benefits and biological activity make it effective in addressing a number of common diseases and conditions including fibromyalgia, chronic pain, diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and headaches.
  • A gradual depletion of nutrients from our soils has left many vegetables with lower levels of magnesium. Another factor that contributes to magnesium deficiency is that it often is depleted by various common conditions (i.e. IBS, Crohn’s disease) and medications (i.e. proton pump inhibitors, diuretics).

Shilianhua – Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

Shilianhua – Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

US Patent No. 5911993 Japan Patent No. 1825088

Where Shilianhua Came From
The Shilianhua is a wild plant growing in the mountain areas of Bama County located in Southwestern China. The population of Bama County lives longer, earning the County the envied reference as the “home of longevity”. Amazingly, the 81 men and women of Bama who are over one hundred years old are nearly all in good health. Bama people generally look younger than their age. Even their horses live 7-10 years longer than elsewhere in China. One of their most important secrets to longevity and health is the inclusion of the Shilianhua plant in their daily diet. Their horses are probably to benefit from having a liking for the plant. The health benefits of Shilianhua to the human body was extensively studied and researched for more than a decade by the Life Science Institute of Beijing University.
Shilianhua (Sekirenka in Japanese) tablets are manufactured in the U.S.A. in an uncomplicated and proven method using mainly a natural source-Shilianhua extract. The Shilianhua has no toxicity. It may be highly effectively in reducing blood sugar for diabetes, especially for non-insulin dependent diabetes, without causing any undesirable side effect, The herbal and nutritional supplement used to make up the Shilianhua tablets enhance its performance. The main medication of the Shilianhua rejuvenate cells of the human body and improve the functioning of the pancreas that controls blood sugar
Manage Diabetes
Medical studies and clinical trials in both China and Japan have shown that Shilianhua tablets can lower blood sugar values from 300 mg/dl to 125 mg/dl in just 2-3 weeks. Due to its effectiveness in lowering blood sugar for diabetes, in 1994, the Shilianhua was granted a patent (Patent No. 1825088) in Japan. The Shilianhua is now very popular in Japan, and sold nationwide in hundrds of Japanese stores. In 1999 the Shilianhua obtained an U.S.A patent(Paten No. 5911993) for its effectiveness in managing diabetes.

PediaFocus-DF Vanilla 540 grams by Designs for Health

PediaFocus-DF Vanilla 540 grams by Designs for Health

Nutrient-dense, functional food powder for children

PediaFocus™-DF, is a vanilla-flavored, dairy-free version of our original PediaFocus™. This high-protein, nutrient-rich meal replacement is an ideal way to provide children of all ages with nutritional support for cognition, focus, stress tolerance, and im­mune function, along with supportive vitamins and minerals for overall health.

PediaFocus™-DF features a natural pea protein isolate which contains a well-bal­anced amino acid profile, close to that of whey protein. This delicious, naturally-flavored vanilla powder can be added to water, milk, milk alternatives, or any other beverage of choice.

It contains effective quantities of critical micronutrients and key nutraceuticals, and will help solve the breakfast dilemma that many parents face. PediaFocus™-DF replaces the need for a separate multivitamin, providing a rich nutritional foundation, including true mixed tocopherols (with high amounts of gamma tocoph­erol), natural folates from the NatureFolate™ blend, and Albion chelated minerals with optimal absorption.

While PediaFocus™-DF is appropriate for all children, it may be par­ticularly important for those with difficulties focusing in school and those with ADHD (Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder). There is much evidence that diet and nutrition play a critical role in affecting be­havior in the hyperactive child, focusing on avoidance of simple sugars, processed foods, and chemical food additives and dyes. This product contains no sucrose, fructose or artificial flavors, deriving its sweetness from the natural herb stevia.

PediaFocus™-DF consists of a generous 8 g of protein per serv­ing, as adequate amounts of protein throughout the day are needed to properly stabilize blood sugar. While sugar will not cause a child to develop ADHD, it has been known to exacerbate some of the disorder’s symptoms. This is especially significant since ADHD children frequently have abnormal sugar metabolism.

PediaFocus™ May Provide Support For:

  • Attention difficulties in children
  • Helping to enhance learning capacity
  • Stress tolerance
  • Helping with focus/calming
  • Optimal overall immune function
  • GI mucosal immune response and health
  • Detoxification
  • Blood sugar regulation
  • Quick and easy, great-tasting meal replacement
  • Multivitamin/Multimineral replacement

PaleoMeal-DF Vanilla 540 grams by Designs for Health

PaleoMeal-DF Vanilla 540 grams by Designs for Health

Now with 100% pea protein!

PaleoMeal®-DF (Dairy-Free) is a plant-derived protein powder alternative to our popular whey-based PaleoMeal®. It is free of casein, lactose, and gluten and offers the same comprehensive nutrient blend as the original PaleoMeal®. When used with a balanced whole foods diet, PaleoMeal®-DF is designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness.

PaleoMeal®-DF: Featuring plant-derived protein Peatein™

PaleoMeal® -DF is made with Peatein™, a natural pea protein concentrate o­ffering a high level of functionality and nutritional benefits. Using a patented protein technology, the production process does not use any chemicals. The raw materials, North American grown yellow peas, are not genetically modified (non-GMO).

Peatein™ has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, it is particularly high in arginine, leucine, lysine and tyrosine. Peatein™ is a true vegan protein which has excellent digestibility (98%) and is hypoallergenic.

As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels. It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion.

Additional Highlights of PaleoMeal®-DF

NatureFolate™ – natural vitamin folates that are found in foods such as spinach and are immediately “active” and bioavailable to the human body.

Creatine MagnaPower® for energy reserves – stabilized creatine plays an important role in the maintenance and regeneration of ATP, and helps to increase muscle mass, strength and endurance.Vegetarians appear to have lower tissue creatine concentrations, since creatine is mostly found in animal foods such as herring, pork, beef, salmon and tuna.

Vanilla PaleoMeal®-DF contains no sucrose, fructose, or artificial sweeteners, and is naturally sweetened with the herb stevia.

Who could benefit from PaleoMeal®-DF?

PaleoMeal®-DF is suggested in combination therapies for:

  • Nutritional Support for Vegetarians/Vegans
  • Protein malnutrition
  • Cachexia
  • Anorexia
  • Sarcopenia
  • Weight Management

PaleoMeal Chocolate 900 grams by Designs for Health

PaleoMeal Chocolate 900 grams by Designs for Health

PaleoMeal is a great-tasting, nutrient-rich powdered meal supplement designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness.

High-Quality Whey Protein

PaleoMeal is made with Proserum, exceptional quality, native whey protein concentrate. This whey is produced using proprietary filtration and drying which involves minimal processing, and maintains the full range of all the fragile immune-boosting and regenerative components naturally present in fresh raw milk. It comes from cows that graze on pesticide-free, chemical-free natural grass pastures, and which are never given bovine growth hormone or any other hormones (No rBST or rBGH), genetically modified organisms, or injected pathogens.

Because whey protein is derived from milk, we have added the proprietary full spectrum enzyme blend (n•zymes) which contains lactase and proteases. This blend was added to aid in digestion of the small amount of lactose present and to assist in the breakdown and assimilation of the various high quality proteins found in milk. Those who are sensitive to milk products may be able to tolerate this whey protein, however, if you are allergic to milk and milk products, use PaleoMeal under the guidance of your health care practitioner.

Whey Better than Soy

Whey protein is nature’s richest source of biologically active protein. Unlike soy protein, which is low in the amino acid methionine, whey protein contains all the amino acids the body needs in the best balance yet discovered in any food. Animal studies show that whey protein increases longevity in aging mice and enhances liver and heart glutathione concentrations. Whey protein provides a good source of the amino acids, cysteine and leucine, which support the production of detoxifying elements needed to eliminate mercury from the body. DFH chose whey protein not just because it is an outstanding source of complete protein, but also for its host of other benefits, including its immune-boosting properties.

Additional Highlights of PaleoMeal

NatureFolate – natural vitamin folates that are found in foods such as eggs and spinach and are immediately “active” and bioavailable to the human body.

Creatine MagnaPower for energy reserves – stabilized creatine increases the body’s ability to synthesize and regenerate the ATP required for supplying the energy that is needed for muscle effort.

Inulin – prebiotic soluble fiber which has a subtly sweet flavor but does not impact blood sugar levels. Inulin dissolves easily in water, making PaleoMeal very easy to mix and thus, helps to create an ultra-smooth texture.

Chocolate PaleoMeal contains no sucrose, fructose, or artificial sweeteners, and is sweetened with chalcone (a bioflavonoid-derived sweetener), the laxation-free polyol erythritol, and the herb stevia.

Who could benefit from PaleoMeal?

PaleoMeal is suggested in combination therapies for:

Leg Injury that resulted in blood thinners

Paula J

Leg Injury that resulted in blood thinners

Immediately after meeting Betsy in February 2008 she diagnosed my problem and put me on a regimen of chinese herbs and acupunture treatments. I walked in with assistance of a cane and in less than a month I was able to put down the cane and then ease into a regimen of exercises that help prepare me physically so that I was able to return to my job in October of 2008 with the military overseas as a civilian contractor. I feel that if I had not found Betsy I would still be on a regimen of blood thinners and still walking with a cane. I’ve since recommend her services to everyone I meet that will benefit from her services.
