We are here to help you as you navigate healthy aging.

We make specific individual recommendations, as described in Therapeutic Lifestyle and Evaluating Your Needs

There are general recommendations for most people.  For example, to improve:

BONE HEALTH, we generally recommend moderate strengthening and weight bearing exercises at all ages, and supplement food factors such as
Cal Apatite® with Magnesium.

The appropriateness of dietary calcium is still being evaluated by nutritional scientists. Good questions are being asked about mineral sources and amounts.  We believe this is the type of food sourced calcium we can recommend with confidence be taken for long term bone health benefits.   It is purity-tested, calcium-rich MCHC†, a complex crystalline compound composed primarily of calcium, phosphorus, delicate organic factors and protein matrix, bone-derived growth factors, and a full spectrum of trace minerals that naturally comprise healthy bone. 

Other factors also contribute to bone health. 
For women in menopause and post-menopause Wellness Essentials for Women's Prime®, is in convenient daily packs formulated to target energy metabolism, heart health, and bone health, as well as maintain vitality and overall health.  It also containing Ostera®, which promotes healthy bone remodeling bio-markers to support bone quality and integrity, with no reported serious adverse effects, as well as PhytoMulti®, a nutrient-rich superfood formula with whole food concentrates.


Bone strength is being built in teenage years. The minerals contained in bone stores are used for inflammatory response during healing episodes, and to buffer excess acid in the body from Western diets high in sugar, wheat and animal protein.  A good choice for cycling women, as well as men, is Cal Apatite® with Magnesium

The benefits of Cal Apatite are also available in other Wellness Essentials formula in convenient daily packets also containing other beneficial factors for differing stages of life.
For HOT FLASH RELIEF we commonly recommend Estrovera™ , which has clinically shown to dramatically reduce the number of daily menopausal hot flashes, comparable to hormone replacement therapy with minimal safety concerns for long-term use. It has also been demonstrated to relieve a wide range of other menopausal symptoms including sleep disturbance, depressive mood, irritability and anxiety, physical and emotional exhaustion, joint and muscle complaints, urinary tract symptoms, and vaginal dryness.
