Factor IV - Glossary of Terms



ALANINE TRANSAMINASE
Alanine Transaminase or ALT is a transaminase enzyme (EC 2.6.1.2). It is also called serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) or alanine aminotransferase (ALAT). ALT is found in serum and in various bodily tissues, but is most commonly associated with the liver. It catalyzes the two parts of the alanine cycle.
ALLOXAN
Alloxan is an oxygenated pyrimidine derivative. It is present as alloxan hydrate in aqueous solution.
ALOPECIA
Alopecia means loss of hair from the head or body. Alopecia includes baldness, a term generally reserved for pattern alopecia or androgenic alopecia. Compulsive pulling of hair (trichotillomania) can also produce hair loss. This condition is dubbed “traction alopecia”. Hairstyling routines such as ponytails or braids may also induce hair loss, as can hair relaxer solutions, and hot hair irons. In some cases, alopecia is due to underlying medical conditions, such as iron deficiency. Generally, patchy hair loss signifies alopecia areata. Alopecia areata typically presents with sudden hair loss causing patches to appear on the scalp or other areas of the body. If left untreated, or if the disease does not respond to treatment, complete baldness can result in the affected area, or alopecia totalis. When the entire body suffers from complete hair loss, it is alopecia universalis. It is similar to effects that occur with chemotherapy.
AMINO ACIDS
Amino acids have many functions in the body. they are the building blocks for all body proteinsstructural proteins that build muscle, connective tissue including skin, bone and other structures, and functional proteins in the form of thousands of metabolically active enzymes. amino acids provide the body with the nitrogen that is essential for growth and maintenance of all tissues and structures. proteins and amino acids also serve as a source of energy. individual amino acids also have specific functions. amino acids serve as precursors for many nitrogenous substances. a few of these include purines, hormones, and neuro-transmitters, including biologically active peptides. In addition, many proteins contain amino acids that have been modified for a specific function, e.g., calcium binding or collagen cross-linking.
AMLAKI
According to ayurveda, (an ancient science of health and medicine), amla may be used as to promote longevity, and traditionally to enhance digestion, treat constipation, reduce fever, purify the blood, reduce cough, alleviate asthma, strengthen the heart, benefit the eyes, stimulate hair growth, enliven the body, and enhance intellect. also known as Indian gooseberry, amlaki has undergone preliminary research, demonstrating in vitro antiviral and antimicrobial properties. There is preliminary evidence in vitro that its extracts induce apoptosis and modify gene expression in osteoclasts involved in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. experimental preparations of leaves, bark or fruit have shown potential efficacy against laboratory models of disease, such as for inflammation, cancer, age-related renal disease, and diabetes. a human pilot study demonstrated reduction of blood cholesterol levels in both normal and hypercholesterolemic men. another very recent study with alloxan-induced diabetic rats given an aqueous amla fruit extract has shown significant decrease of the blood glucose as well as triglyceridemic levels and an improvement of the liver function caused by a normalization of the liver-specific enzyme alanine transaminase (alt) activity. although fruits are reputed to contain high amounts of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), 445 mg/100g, the specific contents are disputed and the overall antioxidant strength of amla may derive instead from its high density of tannins and other polyphenols. the fruit also contains flavonoids, kaempferol, ellagic acid and gallic acid. reducing the thinning and possible balding that could eventually occur. preserves the color of hair & delays the onset of gray hair. powerful antioxidant: supports pre-mature aging & well known for supporting skin disorders. enhances brain functions & detoxifies and cleanses.
ANEMIA
Anemia is a decrease in number of red blood cells (RBCs) or less than the normal quantity of hemoglobin in the blood.[1][2] However, it can include decreased oxygen-binding ability of each hemoglobin molecule due to deformity or lack in numerical development as in some other types of hemoglobin deficiency. Because hemoglobin (found inside RBCs) normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, anemia leads to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in organs. Because all human cells depend on oxygen for survival, varying degrees of anemia can have a wide range of clinical consequences. Anemia is the most common disorder of the blood. There are several kinds of anemia, produced by a variety of underlying causes. Anemia can be classified in a variety of ways, based on the morphology of RBCs, underlying etiologic mechanisms, and discernible clinical spectra, to mention a few. The three main classes of anemia include excessive blood loss (acutely such as a hemorrhage or chronically through low-volume loss), excessive blood cell destruction (hemolysis) or deficient red blood cell production (ineffective hematopoiesis).
ANTI-MICROBIAL
An anti-microbial is a substance that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms[1] such as bacteria, fungi, or protozoans. Antimicrobial drugs either kill microbes (microbiocidal) or prevent the growth of microbes (microbiostatic). Disinfectants are antimicrobial substances used on non-living objects or outside the body. The history of antimicrobials begins with the observations of Pasteur and Joubert, who discovered that one type of bacteria could prevent the growth of another. They did not know at that time that the reason one bacterium failed to grow was that the other bacterium was producing an antibiotic. Technically, antibiotics are only those substances that are produced by one microorganism that kill, or prevent the growth, of another microorganism. Of course, in today’s common usage, the term antibiotic is used to refer to almost any drug that attempts to rid your body of a bacterial infection. Antimicrobials include not just antibiotics, but synthetically formed compounds as well.
ANTIOXIDANT
An antioxidant is a molecule capable of inhibiting the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death. When the chain reaction occurs in a purified monomer, it produces a polymer resin, such as a plastic, a synthetic fiber, or an oil paint film. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. They do this by being oxidized themselves, so antioxidants are often reducing agents such as thiols, ascorbic acid or polyphenols. Although oxidation reactions are crucial for life, they can also be damaging; hence, plants and animals maintain complex systems of multiple types of antioxidants, such as glutathione, vitamin C, and vitamin E as well as enzymes such as catalase, superoxide dismutase and various peroxidases. Low levels of antioxidants, or inhibition of the antioxidant enzymes, cause oxidative stress and may damage or kill cells.Antioxidants are widely used as ingredients in dietary supplements and have been investigated for the prevention of diseases such as cancer, coronary heart disease and even altitude sickness.
APOPTOSIS
Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death (PCD) that may occur in multicellular organisms. Biochemical events lead to characteristic cell changes (morphology) and death. These changes include blebbing, cell shrinkage, nuclear fragmentation, chromatin condensation, and chromosomal DNA fragmentation. Unlike necrosis, apoptosis produces cell fragments called apoptotic bodies that phagocytic cells are able to engulf and quickly remove before the contents of the cell can spill out onto surrounding cells and cause damage.
AQUEOUS
An aqueous solution is a solution in which the solvent is water. It is usually shown in chemical equations by appending aq to the relevant formula. The word aqueous means pertaining to, related to, similar to, or dissolved in water. As water is an excellent solvent and is also naturally abundant, it is a ubiquitous solvent in chemistry. Substances which are hydrophobic (‘water fearing’) often do not dissolve well in water whereas those that hydrophilic (‘water-loving’) do. An example of a hydrophilic substance would be sodium chloride (ordinary table salt). Acids and bases are aqueous solutions, as part of their Arrhenius definitions. The ability of a substance to dissolve in water is determined by whether the substance can match or exceed the strong attractive forces that water molecules generate between themselves. If the substance lacks the ability to dissolve in water the molecules form a precipitate.
ARTIFICIAL COLORING
Food coloring is a substance, liquid or powder, that is added to food or drink to change its color. Food coloring is used both in commercial food production and in domestic cooking. People associate certain colors with certain flavors, and the color of food can influence the perceived flavor in anything from candy to wine.For this reason, food manufacturers add these dyes to their products. Sometimes the aim is to simulate a color that is perceived by the consumer as natural. Color variation in foods throughout the seasons and the effects of processing and storage often make color addition commercially advantageous to maintain the color expected or preferred by the consumer.
ARTIFICIAL FLAVORING
Flavor is the sensory impression of a food or other substance, and is determined mainly by the chemical senses of taste and smell. The “trigeminal senses”, which detect chemical irritants in the mouth and throat as well as temperature and texture, are also very important to the overall Gestalt of flavor perception. The flavor of the food, as such, can be altered with natural or artificial flavorants, which affect these senses. Flavorant is defined as a substance that gives another substance flavor, altering the characteristics of the solute, causing it to become sweet, sour, tangy, etc. Of the three chemical senses, smell is the main determinant of a food item’s flavor. While the taste of food is limited to sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and savory (umami) – the basic tastes – the smells of a food are potentially limitless. A food’s flavor, therefore, can be easily altered by changing its smell while keeping its taste similar. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in artificially flavored jellies, soft drinks and candies, which, while made of bases with a similar taste, have dramatically different flavors due to the use of different scents or fragrances.
ASCORBIC ACID
Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties. It is a white solid but impure samples can appear yellowish. It dissolves well in water to give mildly acidic solutions. Ascorbic acid is one form (“vitamer”) of vitamin C. The name is derived from a- (meaning “no”) and scorbutus (scurvy), the disease caused by a deficiency of vitamin C. Being derived from glucose, many animals are able to produce it, but humans require it as part of their nutrition.
ASTERACEAE
Asteraceae or Compositae, (the aster, daisy, or sunflower family), comprise the largest family of vascular plants. The family has more than 22,750 currently accepted species, spread across 1620 genera, and 12 subfamilies. The largest genera are Senecio (1,500 species), Vernonia (1,000 species), Cousinia (600 species) and Centaurea (600 species). Most members of Asteraceae are herbaceous, but a significant number are also shrubs, vines and trees. The family is distributed throughout the world, and is most common in the arid and semi-arid regions of subtropical and lower temperate latitudes.Many economically important products come from composites, including cooking oils, lettuce, sunflower seeds, artichokes, sweetening agents, and teas. Several genera are also very popular with the horticultural community, these include marigolds, chrysanthemums, dahlias, zinnias, and heleniums.
ATHEROSCLEROSIS
Atherosclerosis (also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease or ASVD) is a condition in which an artery wall thickens as a result of the accumulation of fatty materials such as cholesterol. It is a syndrome affecting arterial blood vessels, a chronic inflammatory response in the walls of arteries, caused largely by the accumulation of macrophage white blood cells and promoted by low-density lipoproteins (plasma proteins that carry cholesterol and triglycerides) without adequate removal of fats and cholesterol from the macrophages by functional high density lipoproteins (HDL), (see apoA-1 Milano). It is commonly referred to as a hardening or furring of the arteries. It is caused by the formation of multiple plaques within the arteries.
AUTOIMMUNE REACTIONS
Autoimmune diseases arise from an overactive immune response of the body against substances and tissues normally present in the body. In other words, the body actually attacks its own cells. The immune system mistakes some part of the body as a pathogen and attacks it. This may be restricted to certain organs (e.g. in autoimmune thyroiditis) or involve a particular tissue in different places (e.g. Goodpasture’s disease which may affect the basement membrane in both the lung and the kidney). The treatment of autoimmune diseases is typically with immunosuppression—medication which decreases the immune response.
AYURVEDA
Ayurveda or ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional medicine native to India and a form of alternative medicine. In Sanskrit, words ?yus, meaning “longevity”, and veda, meaning “related to knowledge” or “science”. Evolving throughout its history, of medicine in South Asia. The earliest literature on Indian medical practice appeared during the Vedic period in India, i.e., in the mid-second millennium BCE. The Su?ruta Sa?hit? and the Caraka Sa?hit? are great encyclopedias of medicine compiled from various sources from the mid-first millennium BCE to about 500 CE. They are among the foundational works of Ayurveda. Over the following centuries, ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments .Western medicine has ayurveda classified as a system of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) that is used to complement, rather than replace, the treatment regimen and relationship that exists between a patient and their existing physician.
BCAA INGREDIENTS
Branch Chain Amino Acids
BHRINGARAJ
A plant belonging to the family asteraceae, which grows abundantly in the tropics, and is used with success in ayurvedic aedicine, (ancient hindu science of health and medicine). bhringaraj is a good rejuvenator. it is good for the hair and skin, helps expel intestinal worms,helps relieve cough and asthma and strengthens the body. it is also used as an approach to intestinal parasites, anemia, hepatitis, skin diseases, night blindness and spleen enlargement.bhringaraj oil, is also said to make hair black and shiny and for removing grayness and reversing balding.

BIOAVAILABILITY
Bioavailability (BA) is a subcategory of absorption and is used to describe the fraction of an administered dose of unchanged drug that reaches the systemic circulation, one of the principal pharmacokinetic properties of drugs. For dietary supplements, herbs and other nutrients in which the route of administration is nearly always oral, bioavailability generally designates simply the quantity or fraction of the ingested dose that is absorbed. Bioavailability is defined slightly differently for drugs as opposed to dietary supplements primarily due to the method of administration and Food and Drug Administration regulations.
BIODYNAMIC FARMING
Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming that treats farms as unified and individual organisms emphasizing balancing the holistic development and interrelationship of the soil, plants and animals as a self-nourishing system without external inputs insofar as this is possible given the loss of nutrients due to the export of food.
BIOPTERINE
Biopterin is a coenzyme that is produced within the body.It is an oxidized degradation product of tetrahydrobiopterin. Defects in biopterin synthesis or regeneration can cause a form of hyperphenylalaninemia (a disease with symptoms similar to PKU) Biopterin is synthesized in several parts of the body, including the pineal gland.Biopterin deficiency has been associated with a variety of disorders, including dystonia and rabies.
BIOTIN
A member of the b-vitamin family; also known as the h vitamin. assists in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and protein. serves as a critical component of several enzymes and is involved in energy metabolism. an essential supplement for anyone interested in preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth. a major component in the natural hair manufacturing process; it is essential not only to produce and strengthen new hair, but it also plays a major role in the overall health of skin and nails. has been used to combat premature graying of hair, though it is likely to be useful for those with a low biotin level.

It was intended and developed to reduce the time table in which results would be seen. It is successful at it’s function.
BOTANICAL MEDICINE
A traditional medicinal or folk medicine practice based on the use of plants and plant extracts. The scope of herbal medicine is sometimes extended to include fungal and bee products, as well as minerals, shells and certain animal parts.Pharmacognosy is the study of medicines derived from natural sources. Traditional use of medicines is recognized as a way to learn about potential future medicines. In 2001, researchers identified 122 compounds used in mainstream medicine which were derived from “ethnomedical” plant sources; 80% of these compounds were used in the same or related manner as the traditional ethnomedical use.Plants have evolved the ability to synthesize chemical compounds that help them defend against attack from a wide variety of predators such as insects, fungi and herbivorous mammals. By chance, some of these compounds, whilst being toxic to plant predators, turn out to have beneficial effects when used to treat human diseases. Such secondary metabolites are highly varied in structure, many are aromatic substances, most of which are phenols or their oxygen-substituted derivatives. At least 12,000 have been isolated so far; a number estimated to be less than 10% of the total. Chemical compounds in plants mediate their effects on the human body by binding to receptor molecules present in the body; such processes are identical to those already well understood for conventional drugs and as such herbal medicines do not differ greatly from conventional drugs in terms of how they work. This enables herbal medicines to be in principle just as effective as conventional medicines but also gives them the same potential to cause harmful side effects. Many of the herbs and spices used by humans to season food yield useful medicinal compounds.Similarly to prescription drugs, a number of herbs are thought to be likely to cause adverse effects.Furthermore, “adulteration, inappropriate formulation, or lack of understanding of plant and drug interactions have led to adverse reactions that are sometimes life threatening or lethal.
CALCIUM
Calcium is the chemical element with the symbol Ca and atomic number 20. It has an atomic mass of 40.078 amu. Calcium is a soft gray alkaline earth metal, and is the fifth most abundant element by mass in the Earth’s crust. Calcium is also the fifth most abundant dissolved ion in seawater by both molarity and mass, after sodium, chloride, magnesium, and sulfate.Calcium is essential for living organisms, particularly in cell physiology, where movement of the calcium ion Ca2+ into and out of the cytoplasm functions as a signal for many cellular processes. As a major material used in mineralization of bones and shells, calcium is the most abundant metal by mass in many animals.
COLLAGEN
Collagen is a group of naturally occurring proteins found in animals, especially in the flesh and connective tissues of mammals.It is the main component of connective tissue, and is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen, in the form of elongated fibrils, is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendon, ligament and skin, and is also abundant in cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut, and intervertebral disc.In muscle tissue, it serves as a major component of the endomysium. Collagen constitutes one to two percent of muscle tissue, and accounts for 6% of the weight of strong, tendinous muscles.Gelatin, which is used in food and industry, is collagen that has been irreversibly hydrolyzed.
DAILY LIVING SHAKE
A Daily Living Shake is both a Fresh Vegetable Shake and a Fresh Fruit Smoothie. The purpose of Daily Living Shakes are to consume “Live-Food Energy”. Live Food Energy helps Factor IV enter your cells more easily, as well as contributes to good health. Enjoying your Shake and Smoothie along with good daily doses of water and The Booster tri-pak AMPLIFIER will allow Factor IV to operate at Peak Performance.
ELASTIN
Elastin is a protein in connective tissue that is elastic and allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin helps skin to return to its original position when it is poked or pinched. Elastin is also an important load-bearing tissue in the bodies of vertebrates and used in places where mechanical energy is required to be stored. In humans, elastin is encoded by the ELN gene.This gene encodes a protein that is one of the two components of elastic fibers. The encoded protein is rich in hydrophobic amino acids such as glycine and proline, which form mobile hydrophobic regions bounded by crosslinks between lysine residues.
ENZYMES
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process are called substrates, and they are converted into different molecules, called the products. Almost all processes in a biological cell need enzymes to occur at significant rates. Since enzymes are selective for their substrates and speed up only a few reactions from among many possibilities, the set of enzymes made in a cell determines which metabolic pathways occur in that cell.
FACTOR IV
Factor IV is a High Potency Powder Nutrition for Hair, Skin and Nails. It is actually a highly specialized and customized nutritional solution for your hair, skin and nails. What makes it special is that it is the first Therapeutic Dose ever created. The word “supplement” appears on the canister because of FDA regulations.

FISH OIL
Fish oil is oil derived from the tissues of oily fish. Fish oils contain the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), precursors of eicosanoids that are known to reduce inflammation throughout the body,and are thought to have many health benefits. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil have been studied for treating clinical depression,[6][7] anxiety,[8][9] and enhancing the benefits from depression medications. Countries with the highest intake of fish in their diets are correlated with the lowest rates of depression among citizens.
FLAVONOIDS
Flavonoids or bioflavonoids, also collectively known as Vitamin P and citrin,are a class of plant secondary metabolites or yellow pigments having a structure similar to that of flavones.The three flavonoid classes above are all ketone-containing compounds, and as such, are flavonoids and flavonols. This class was the first to be termed “bioflavonoids.” The terms flavonoid and bioflavonoid have also been more loosely used to describe non-ketone polyhydroxy polyphenol compounds which are more specifically termed flavanoids, flavan-3-ols, or catechins (although catechins are actually a subgroup of flavanoids).
FO-TI
This chinese rejuvenative herb is famous for promoting healthy hair, skin and sexual vitality. It contains phospholipids which play an important role in cell membrane structure and function. It helps produce sod, and enzyme prominent in fighting free radicals which cause premature aging. foti also helps build stamina and resistance to disease. It strengthens muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones. It is effective in lowering cholesterol and builds red blood cells. supports the treatment of natural hair loss. improves circulation to head / scalp, as well as, improves the quality of the blood. known as the best chinese herb for hair; known for its beneficial effects on strengthening hair, and reversing graying hair.
FOLIC ACID
Folic Acid is a water-soluble essential b vitamin found in many foods, including leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits and beans. folic acid works along with vitamin b-12 and vitamin c to help the body digest and utilize proteins and to synthesize new proteins when they are needed.
HORSETAIL
Horsetail is an important remedy in connective tissue deficiency, evidenced by dry mucus membranes, broken fingernails, split-ends, and hair loss. this benefit however appears to extend to all types of connective tissues, including weak or damaged joints and bones, atherosclerosis and varicosities. the usefulness of Horsetail on the mucosa is evidenced by its efficacy in respiratory conditions such as hay fever as well as in consumptive conditions of the lungs, to issues such as chronic bladder infections. horsetail is especially indicated in chronic joint problems and frequent musculoskeletal injuries, which tend to indicate an overall trophic deficiency of the skeletal system. the rich silica content has been suggested as the reason for its benefit effects. it is used in homeopathy, and in biodynamic farming as an aqueous spray to strengthen crops from wind and rain. the fibrous, jointed stems of Horsetail, and its jointed leaves seem to suggest the skeletal system. similarly, its usage as a scouring brush seems to indicate resilience. thus Horsetail is like an archaic memory of physical structure and strength, and has been observed to have an energetic influence to reestablish this property in the body. the physiomedicalists (natural healers) and eclectics thought of Horsetail as an important herb for healing many conditions including, kidney issues, incontinence, edema, suppression of urine, as well as in stds such as gonorrhea (felter and lloyd 1893). felter and lloyd also mention that the ashes are used in hyperchlorhydria (1893). culpepper mentions its virtues in hemorrhages and indolent ulcers, Moore suggesting its usefulness in menorrhagia and intestinal hemorrhage, as well as the powder applied topically as a hemostatic.
HUMAN CONSUMPTION
Related to food or nutrition or anything that human beings use on a regular basis or otherwise.
HYDRATED
Pertaining to water saturation. usually refers to adequate amounts.
INDIAN GOOSEBERRY
The Indian gooseberry, or aamla’, is a deciduous tree of the Phyllanthaceae family. It is known for its edible fruit of the same name.ndian gooseberry has undergone preliminary research, demonstrating in vitro antiviral and antimicrobial properties.There is preliminary evidence in vitro that its extracts induce apoptosis and modify gene expression in osteoclasts involved in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. It may prove to have potential activity against some cancers. It also promoted the spontaneous repair and regeneration process of the pancreas occurring after an acute attack.The Indian gooseberry has undergone preliminary research, demonstrating in vitro antiviral and antimicrobial properties. In traditional Indian medicine, dried and fresh fruits of the plant are used. All parts of the plant are used in various Ayurvedic/Unani medicine herbal preparations, including the fruit, seed, leaves, root, bark and flowers. According to Ayurveda, aamla fruit is sour (amla) and astringent (kashaya) in taste (rasa), with sweet (madhura), bitter (tikta) and pungent (katu) secondary tastes (anurasas).Its qualities (gunas) are light (laghu) and dry (ruksha), the postdigestive effect (vipaka) is sweet (madhura), and its energy (virya) is cooling (shita).
IODINE
Iodine is needed for the normal metabolism of cells. metabolism is the process of converting food into energy. humans need iodine for normal thyroid function, and for the production of thyroid hormones. Iodine is a structural component of the hormones thyroxin and triiodothyronine, which control metabolism throughout the body.
JUICING
Juicing is the process of squeezing juice from fruit or vegetables. A juicer may be used to accomplish this. Juicing can contain concentrated amounts of phytochemicals, antioxidants and vitamins, substances that fight cancer[citation needed], and substances that reduce inflammation and pain.Carrot juice supplies the body with a high amount of pro-vitamin A, which the body converts to Vitamin A; vitamins B,C,D,E, and K, minerals, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and trace minerals.Beetroot makes another powerful juice which has many beneficial ingredients, including a large amount of iron.
KELP
Kelps are large seaweeds (algae) belonging to the brown algae (Phaeophyceae) in the order Laminariales. Kombu (Saccharina japonica and others), several Pacific species of kelp, is a very important ingredient in Japanese cuisine. Kombu is used to flavor broths and stews (especially dashi), as a savory garnish (tororo konbu) for rice and other dishes, as a vegetable, and a primary ingredient in popular snacks (such as tsukudani). Transparent sheets of kelp (oboro konbu) are used as an edible decorative wrapping for rice and other foods.Kombu can be used to soften beans during cooking, and to help convert indigestible sugars and thus reduce flatulence.Because of its high concentration of iodine, brown kelp (Laminaria) has been used to treat goiter, an enlargement of the thyroid gland caused by a lack of iodine, since medieval times.In 2010 a group of researchers in the University of Newcastle found that a fibrous material called alginate in sea kelp was better at preventing fat absorption than most over-the-counter slimming treatments in laboratory trials. As a food additive it may be used to reduce fat absorption and thus obesity.
KERATIN
The main protein combination of amino acids found in the structure of hair.
L-CYSTEINE
L-Cysteine is a non-essential amino acid that is formed when two l-cysteine molecules are joined together by a disulfide bridge, formed when l-cysteine is oxidized. l-cysteine can be converted by the body into l-cystine and vice versa as the body requires. l-cystine is a vital component of hair keratin, digestive enzymes, and lactoglobulin. in terms of hair fiber production, the most important amino acid is cysteine. cysteine is the most common amino acid in hair. it is particularly important because it contains sulfur molecules. as part of a keratin protein chain, these sulfur molecules cross link with each other to produce disulfide bonds. these chemical bonds are what gives hair its strength. for this reason the most popular amino acid supplement taken for hair is cysteine.
L-LEUCINE
L-Leucine is referred to as branch chain amino acids (bcaa) and is a part of the essential amino acid family.effective for maintaining blood sugar levels and also increases growth hormone production. l-leucine combines with isoleucine and valine to protect and provide fuel to the muscles, and also helps to increase your endurance level and boost energy. this amino acid helps preserve muscle tissue, so that it doesn’t break down as quickly during the aging process. l-leucine can also speed the recovery process for muscle damage and skin injuries. l-leucine is important for muscle recuperation, muscle energy, muscle growth, and the preservation of lean muscle mass. l-leucine cannot be produced by your body and must be supplied through your diet. bcaa’s enter your bloodstream and attach directly to muscle where they repair damaged muscle tissue. this process helps ensure maximum muscle recovery and growth! l-leucine also contains vitamin c, vitamin b6 and bioperine. this combination of vitamins aid in bioavailability, while bioperine ensures maximum absorption of the primary bcaa ingredients.
L-LYSINE
L-Proline plays an important role in skin health and collagen formation as the body can convert proline into hydroxyproline, which is used by the body to make into collagen. benefits of L-proline include the healthy maintenance of connective tissue and repairing damage to tissue, skin and muscle. contributes to a healthy immune system. one of the most important contributions of proline is its relationship to collagen. collagen is found throughout the body including: skin, blood vessels, tendons, bones, and the eye. improper production of collagen has been linked to genetic disorders that result in joint and spine problems.
L-PROLINE
L-Proline plays an important role in skin health and collagen formation as the body can convert proline into hydroxyproline, which is used by the body to make into collagen. benefits of L-proline include the healthy maintenance of connective tissue and repairing damage to tissue, skin and muscle. contributes to a healthy immune system. one of the most important contributions of proline is its relationship to collagen. collagen is found throughout the body including: skin, blood vessels, tendons, bones, and the eye. improper production of collagen has been linked to genetic disorders that result in joint and spine problems.
LIVE FOOD ENERGY
Live Food Energy is a term created by BaronCrest Enterprises that means what it says. Not only is it a stand alone nutrition to support a healthy body, it is a key component in allowing Factor IV to work effortlessly to enter your cells.
MAGNESIUM
Magnesium is a chemical element with the symbol Mg, atomic number 12, and common oxidation number +2. It is an alkaline earth metal and the seventh most abundant element in the Earth’s crust, where it constitutes about 2% by mass, and ninth in the known Universe as a whole.This preponderance of magnesium is related to the fact that it is easily built up in supernova stars from a sequential addition of three helium nuclei to carbon (which in turn is made from three helium nuclei). Due to magnesium ion’s high solubility in water, it is the third most abundant element dissolved in seawater.Magnesium is the 11th most abundant element by mass in the human body; its ions are essential to all living cells, where they play a major role in manipulating important biological polyphosphate compounds like ATP, DNA, and RNA. Hundreds of enzymes thus require magnesium ions to function. Magnesium is also the metallic ion at the center of chlorophyll, and is thus a common additive to fertilizers. Magnesium compounds are used medicinally as common laxatives, antacids (e.g., milk of magnesia), and in a number of situations where stabilization of abnormal nerve excitation and blood vessel spasm is required (e.g., to treat eclampsia). Magnesium ions are sour to the taste, and in low concentrations help to impart a natural tartness to fresh mineral waters.
METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE
MSM, (methylsulfonylmethane) is a naturally occurring compound of biologically available sulfur. sulfur is an indispensable element in human nutrition. msm occurs naturally in a variety of foods, such as fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, milk, and fish. msm is volatile and easily lost during cooking. msm is very well absorbed by the intestinal tract and rapidly distributed within the body. as part of the amino acids methionine and cysteine, sulfur is required for the structural integrity and function of almost every protein in the body, including enzymes, serum proteins, and the keratin of skin, hair, and nails.
MINERAL
A mineral is a naturally occurring solid chemical substance that is formed through biogeochemical processes and that has a characteristic chemical composition, a highly ordered atomic structure, and specific physical properties. By comparison, a rock is an aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids and does not have a specific chemical composition. Minerals range in composition from pure elements and simple salts to very complex silicates with thousands of known forms.

POWDER NUTRITION
A food source in a powdered form.
PRESERVATIVES
Preservative food additives can be used alone or in conjunction with other methods of food preservation. Preservatives may be antimicrobial preservatives, which inhibit the growth of fescies or fungi, including mold, or antioxidants such as oxygen absorbers, which inhibit the oxidation of food constituents. Common antimicrobial preservatives include calcium propionate, sodium nitrate, sodium nitrite, sulfites (sulfur dioxide, sodium bisulfite, potassium hydrogen sulfite, etc.) and disodium EDTA. Antioxidants include BHA and BHT. Other preservatives include ethanol and methylchloroisothiazolinone. FDA standards do not currently require fruit and vegetable product labels to reflect the type of chemical preservative(s) used on the produce.[citation needed] The benefits and safety of many artificial food additives (including preservatives) are the subject of debate among academics and regulators specializing in food science, toxicology, and biology.Natural substances such as salt, sugar, vinegar, alcohol, and diatomaceous earth are also used as traditional preservatives. Certain processes such as freezing, pickling, smoking and salting can also be used to preserve food. Another group of preservatives targets enzymes in fruits and vegetables that start to metabolize after they are cut. For instance, citric and ascorbic acids from lemon or other citrus juice can inhibit the action of the enzyme phenolase which turns surfaces of cut apples and potatoes brown.

Some modern synthetic preservatives have become controversial because they have been shown to cause respiratory or other health problems. Some studies point to synthetic preservatives and artificial coloring agents aggravating ADD & ADHD symptoms in those affected. Older studies were inconclusive, quite possibly due to inadequate clinical methods of measuring offending behavior. Parental reports were more accurate indicators of the presence of additives than clinical tests. Several major studies show academic performance increased and disciplinary problems decreased in large non-ADD student populations when artificial ingredients, including preservatives were eliminated from school food programs. Allergenic preservatives in food or medicine can cause anaphylactic shock in susceptible individuals, a condition which is often fatal within minutes without emergency treatment.

PULPIFY
Is where the fruit vegetable is pummeled to create fleshy bits of the resource produce pulp. The pulp left after juicing vegetables or fruit is mostly fiber and cellulose, which like the juice has many nutrients necessary for a healthy daily diet. The leftover pulp can be used in recipes. It is recommended that the pulp be used that day to avoid loss of vitamins. The pulp also makes a wonderful addition to compost for the garden.
PURINE
A purine is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound, consisting of a pyrimidine ring fused to an imidazole ring. Purines, including substituted purines and their tautomers, are the most widely distributed kind of nitrogen-containing heterocycle in nature.Purines and pyrimidines make up the two groups of nitrogenous bases, including the two groups of nucleotide bases. Two of the four deoxyribonucleotides and two of the four ribonucleotides, the respective building blocks of DNA and RNA, are purines.
RE-GROW
To grow again, once there has been loss or degeneration – one of the main characteristics of Factor IV High Powder Nutrition
REGENERATION
Regeneration (biology), the ability to recreate lost or damaged tissues, organs and limbs.
REJUVENATE
Rejuvenation is the hypothetical reversal of the aging process. Rejuvenation is distinct from life extension. Life extension strategies often study the causes of aging and try to oppose those causes in order to slow aging. Rejuvenation is the reversal of aging and thus requires a different strategy, namely repair of the damage that is associated with aging or replacement of damaged tissue with new tissue. Rejuvenation can be a means of life extension, but most life extension strategies do not involve rejuvenation. – one of the main characteristics of Factor IV High Powder Nutrition
RESTORE
To return back to it’s proper place or condition – one of the main characteristics of Factor IV High Powder Nutrition
SERUM PROTEINS
Serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP) is a laboratory test that examines specific proteins in the blood called globulins. Blood must first be collected, usually into an airtight vial or syringe. Electrophoresis is a laboratory technique where the blood serum (the fluid portion of the blood after the blood has clotted) is placed on special paper treated with agarose gel and exposed to an electric current to separate the serum protein components into five classifications by size and electrical charge, those being serum albumin, alpha-1 globulins, alpha-2 globulins, beta globulins, and gamma globulins.
SILICA
Because of silicons importance to structural molecules in the body, the first signs of silicon deficiency are often manifested in the skin, hair and nails. skin and hair lose their strength and elasticity and nails become brittle. silicon deficiency may be caused by consumption of a highly refined diet that is low in essential nutrients. furthermore, levels of this mineral in the skin are known to decrease with aging. silicon supplementation causes a noticeable improvement. Fragile nails become normal in a few weeks. some forms of Alopecia (hair loss) are caused by inadequate intake of nutrients. In such instances, silicon can promote healthy, thick growth of hair. as a general rule, the higher the concentration of silicon in skin, hair and nails, the healthier these tissues are. connective tissue, e.g. bone, tendon, cartilage, blood vessels, and skin, contains most of the silicon found in the body. silicons primary role in the maintenance and repair of these tissues is thought to involve their structural framework as silicon appears to be an integral part of their supporting protein and glycosaminoglycan complexes. a deficiency of dietary silicon negatively affects the structure of this supporting matrix, i.e. collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans, more than the mineralization process itself.
SILICON DIOXIDE
The chemical compound silicon dioxide, also known as silica, is an oxide of silicon with the chemical formula SiO2. It has been known for its hardness since antiquity. Silica is most commonly found in nature as sand or quartz, as well as in the cell walls of diatoms. Silica is a common additive in the production of foods, where it is used primarily as a flow agent in powdered foods, or to absorb water in hygroscopic applications.
SUGAR
Sugar is a term for a class of edible crystalline carbohydrates, mainly sucrose, lactose, and fructose, characterized by a sweet flavor. In food, sugar almost exclusively refers to sucrose, which in its fully-refined (or free sugar) form primarily comes from sugar cane and sugar beet, though is present in natural form in many carbohydrates. Other free sugars are used in industrial food preparation, but are usually known by more specific names—glucose, fructose or fruit sugar, high fructose corn syrup, etc.
SULFER
Sulfur or sulphur is the chemical element with atomic number 16, represented by the symbol S. It is an abundant, multivalent non-metal. At normal conditions, sulfur atoms form cyclic octatomic molecules with chemical formula S8. Elemental sulfur is a bright yellow crystalline solid. Chemically, sulfur can react as either an oxidant or reducing agent. It oxidizes most metals and several nonmetals, including carbon, which leads to its negatives charge in most organosulfur compounds, but it reduces several strong oxidants, such as oxygen and fluorine.Sulfur is an essential element for all life, and is widely used in biochemical processes. In metabolic reactions, sulfur compounds serve as both fuels and respiratory (oxygen-replacing) materials for simple organisms. Sulfur in organic form is present in the vitamins biotin and thiamine, the latter being named for the Greek word for sulfur. Sulfur is an important part of many enzymes and also in antioxidant molecules like glutathione and thioredoxin. Organically bonded sulfur is a component of all proteins, as the amino acids cysteine and methionine. Disulfide bonds are largely responsible for the mechanical strength and insolubility of the protein keratin, found in outer skin, hair, and feathers, and the element contributes to their pungent odor when burned.
SUPPLEMENT
A dietary supplement, also known as food supplement or nutritional supplement, is a preparation intended to supplement the diet and provide nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, or amino acids, that may be missing or may not be consumed in sufficient quantities in a person’s diet. Some countries define dietary supplements as foods, while in others they are defined as drugs or natural health products.

Supplements containing vitamins or dietary minerals are included as a category of food in the Codex Alimentarius, a collection of internationally recognized standards, codes of practice, guidelines and other recommendations relating to foods, food production and food safety. These texts are drawn up by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, an organization that is sponsored by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
TANNIN
A tannin is an astringent, bitter plant polyphenolic compound that binds to and precipitates proteins and various other organic compounds including amino acids and alkaloids. The astringency from the tannins is what causes the dry and puckery feeling in the mouth following the consumption of unripened fruit or red wine. Likewise, the destruction or modification of tannins with time plays an important role in the ripening of fruit and the aging of wine. Tannins have traditionally been considered antinutritional but it is now known that their beneficial or antinutritional properties depend upon their chemical structure and dosage.
THE BOOSTER TRI-PAK AMPLIFIER
The Booster tri-pak AMPLIFIER is a combination of calcium, magnesium, fish oil and a multiple complex. The Booster tri-pak AMPLIFIER is essential and specially formulated supplement for Factor IV. It was intended and developed to reduce the time table in which results would be seen. It is successful at it’s function.
THERAPEUTIC DOSE
A dosage that is such were an effective change and noticeable difference is noticed.
VALINE
Valine is an ?-amino acid with the chemical formula HO2CCH(NH2)CH(CH3)2. L-Valine is one of 20 proteinogenic amino acids. Its codons are GUU, GUC, GUA, and GUG. This essential amino acid is classified as nonpolar. Human dietary sources include cottage cheese, fish, poultry, peanuts, sesame seeds, and lentils. Along with leucine and isoleucine, valine is a branched-chain amino acid. It is named after the plant valerian. In sickle-cell disease, valine substitutes for the hydrophilic amino acid glutamic acid in hemoglobin. Because valine is hydrophobic, the hemoglobin does not fold correctly. Valine is an essential amino acid, hence it must be ingested, usually as a component of proteins. It is synthesized in plants via several steps starting from pyruvic acid. The initial part of the pathway also leads to leucine. The intermediate ?-ketoisovalerate undergoes reductive amination with glutamate.
VITAMIN
A vitamin is an organic compound required as a nutrient in tiny amounts by an organism. In other words, an organic chemical compound (or related set of compounds) is called a vitamin when it cannot be synthesized in sufficient quantities by an organism, and must be obtained from the diet. Thus, the term is conditional both on the circumstances and on the particular organism. For example, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is a vitamin for humans, but not for most other animals, and biotin and vitamin D are required in the human diet only in certain circumstances. By convention, the term vitamin does not include other essential nutrients such as dietary minerals, essential fatty acids, or essential amino acids (which are needed in larger amounts than vitamins), nor does it encompass the large number of other nutrients that promote health but are otherwise required less often.Thirteen vitamins are universally recognized at present.

Vitamins are classified by their biological and chemical activity, not their structure. Thus, each “vitamin” refers to a number of vitamer compounds that all show the biological activity associated with a particular vitamin. Such a set of chemicals is grouped under an alphabetized vitamin “generic descriptor” title, such as “vitamin A”, which includes the compounds retinal, retinol, and four known carotenoids. Vitamers by definition are convertible to the active form of the vitamin in the body, and are sometimes inter-convertible to one another, as well.

Vitamins have diverse biochemical functions. Some have hormone-like functions as regulators of mineral metabolism (e.g., vitamin D), or regulators of cell and tissue growth and differentiation (e.g., some forms of vitamin A). Others function as antioxidants (e.g., vitamin E and sometimes vitamin C). The largest number of vitamins (e.g., B complex vitamins) function as precursors for enzyme cofactors, that help enzymes in their work as catalysts in metabolism. In this role, vitamins may be tightly bound to enzymes as part of prosthetic groups: For example, biotin is part of enzymes involved in making fatty acids. Vitamins may also be less tightly bound to enzyme catalysts as coenzymes, detachable molecules that function to carry chemical groups or electrons between molecules. For example, folic acid carries various forms of carbon group – methyl, formyl, and methylene – in the cell. Although these roles in assisting enzyme-substrate reactions are vitamins’ best-known function, the other vitamin functions are equally important
VITAMIN B6
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin and is part of the vitamin B complex group. Several forms of the vitamin are known, but pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) is the active form and is a cofactor in many reactions of amino acid metabolism, including transamination, deamination, and decarboxylation. PLP also is necessary for the enzymatic reaction governing the release of glucose from glycogen.he primary role of vitamin B6 is to act as a coenzyme to many other enzymes in the body that are involved predominantly in metabolism. This role is performed by the active form, pyridoxal phosphate. This active form is converted from the two other natural forms founds in food: pyridoxal, pyridoxine and pyridoxamine.
VITAMIN C
Vitamin C or L-ascorbic acid or L-ascorbate is an essential nutrient for humans and certain other animal species. In living organisms ascorbate acts as an antioxidant by protecting the body against oxidative stress. It is also a cofactor in at least eight enzymatic reactions including several collagen synthesis reactions that cause the most severe symptoms of scurvy when they are dysfunctional.

Ascorbate (an ion of ascorbic acid) is required for a range of essential metabolic reactions in all animals and plants. Deficiency in this vitamin causes the disease scurvy in humans.[3][4][5] It is also widely used as a food additive.
WHEAT GLUTEN
Wheat gluten, wheat meat, mock duck, gluten meat, or simply gluten, is a food made from the gluten of wheat. It is made by washing wheat flour dough with water until all the starch dissolves, leaving insoluble gluten as an elastic mass which is then cooked before being eaten.

Wheat gluten is an alternative to soybean-based meat substitutes such as tofu. Some types of wheat gluten have a chewy and/or stringy texture more like that of meat than most other substitutes. Wheat gluten is often used instead of meat in Asian, vegetarian, Buddhist, and macrobiotic cuisines. Simulated duck is a common use for wheat gluten.
XYLITOL
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol sweetener used as a naturally occurring sugar substitute. It is found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables, including various berries, corn husks, oats, and mushrooms. It can be extracted from corn fiber, birch, raspberries, plums, and corn. Xylitol is roughly as sweet as sucrose with only two-thirds the food energy. It’s healthy for teeth and gums.
YEAST
Yeasts are eukaryotic micro-organisms classified in the kingdom Fungi, with 1,500 species currently described estimated to be only 1% of all fungal species.Most reproduce asexually by mitosis, and many do so via an asymmetric division process called budding. Yeasts are unicellular, although some species with yeast forms may become multicellular through the formation of a string of connected budding cells known as pseudohyphae, or false hyphae, as seen in most molds.Yeast size can vary greatly depending on the species, typically measuring 3–4 µm in diameter, although some yeasts can reach over 40 µm.By fermentation the yeast species Saccharomyces cerevisiae converts carbohydrates to alcohols and carbon dioxide – for thousands of years the carbon dioxide has been used in baking and the alcohol in alcoholic beverages.It is also extremely important as a model organism in modern cell biology research, and is one of the most thoroughly researched eukaryotic microorganisms. Researchers have used it to gather information about the biology of the eukaryotic cell and ultimately human biology. Other species of yeast, such as Candida albicans, are opportunistic pathogens and can cause infections in humans. Yeasts have recently been used to generate electricity in microbial fuel cells,and produce ethanol for the biofuel industry.
ZINC
Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major metabolic pathways. general signs of human zinc deficiency indicate that zinc has important functions in maintaining immune function, reproduction, healthy skin, and growth. as a cofactor of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (sod), zinc can be considered an antioxidant nutrient. zinc supplementation has been shown to increase the antioxidant = activity of sod, and provide increased free radical protection. zinc deficiency is associated with increased oxidative damage. zinc is an essential trace element required for the activity of over 300 enzymes and is involved in most major metabolic pathways. zinc participates not only in catalytic processes, but also in the structure and stability of some regulatory proteins. Evidence shows that the average American diet is inadequate in zinc. High zinc foods are liver, beef, lamb, cheese, yeasts, oysters, herring, sunflower seeds, wheat germ & bran. High aluminum, cadmium, & copper levels, or chronic diarrhea may contribute to decreased zinc levels. Zinc is essential for normal growth & development & life span. Its primary mode of action is by participating in over twenty key enzyme reactions in your body. Zinc is essential for normal growth & development & life span. Its primary mode of action is by participating in over twenty key enzyme reactions in your body.
