Nutraceuticals

Hillbrook Family Medicine is an authorized provider of bioTE Nutraceuticals. Nutraceuticals have attracted considerable interest due to their potential nutritional, safety and therapeutic

Greek physician Hippocrates (known as the father of medicine) said “let food be your medicine” and with rapid advances in medicine and the growing acceptance of providing essential nutrients in simple pill form, that statement has never been more relevant.  Nutraceuticals may be used to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, postpone the aging process (and in turn increase life expectancy) or just support functions and integrity of the body. They are considered to be healthy sources for prevention of life-threatening diseases such as diabetes, renal and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as different infections.

DIM

This powerful, optimizing natural component balances the metabolism of estrogen in the body.
Found in cruciferous vegetables, DIM can be beneficial for breast, uterine, cervical and prostate health. DIM is not a plant estrogen or an estrogen mimic like soy isoflavones, but rather an estrogen balancer. DIM stimulates more efficient metabolism for estrogen. DIM promotes beneficial, healthy estrogen metabolism in both women and men and frees testosterone from binding agents in your blood, which helps balance your hormones and makes you feel great!

A•D•K 10

The most powerful combination of protection and absorption for the body.

VITAMIN A
Required for the normal development, growth and maintenance of the bones.
Supports bone remodeling, which is our body's way of removing old or weakened bone tissue to make room for new, stronger tissue. This remodeling process is critical to the repair process of the bone matrix to retain bone density. It also plays a role in stimulating bone-building cells to secrete proteins that are required for bone mineralization.

VITAMIN D3
Fat-soluble vitamin essential for maintaining normal calcium metabolism.
Supports calcium absorption in the stomach and helps maintain adequate blood levels of calcium and phosphate to enable normal mineralization of bone. It's also needed for proper bone growth and remodeling. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle or misshapen. It also helps support normal cardiovascular function and healthy blood pressure.

VITAMIN K2
Plays an essential role in our health — cardiovascular disease is an illness of nutritional deficiency.
Nutritional deficiency appears to be a factor in the development of diabetes and liver cancer. Plays an essential role in bone metabolism and promoting healthy teeth. It helps vitamin k2 guide calcium toward the areas of the body where it is needed (such as the skeleton) and away from areas where it could have a negative effect (such as the cardiovascular system).

Probiotic

Probiotics are live microorganisms that are either the same as or similar to those found in the human body.
Although we tend to think of bacteria as harmful "germs," many bacteria actually help the body function properly. Probiotics aid a variety of gastrointestinal issues such as immune support. Probiotics are also used for preventing tooth decay and other oral health problems.

Omega 3

An important factor in maintaining healthy bodily functions, BioTE® Omega 3 aids in muscle activity, blood clotting prevention, digestion, fertility, and cell division and growth. Commonly used supplements that contain omega 3 include: fish oil (which provides EPA and DHA) and flaxseed oil (which provides ALA). DHA is vital for brain development and function. ALA is considered an "essential" fatty acid, meaning we obtain it through diet or supplements because the body cannot manufacture it. BioTE® Omega 3 is beneficial to the heart, eyes and brain, and helps with arthritis relief and infant development.

Iodine PLUS

Iodine Complex aids in natural hormone production and balance.
Iodine is critical to the production of thyroid hormone. Iodine deficiency may play a role in myriad of problems, including mental retardation, lower IQ, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and thyroid problems.

It is speculated that this deficiency may be one of the causes for the dramatic increase in breast and prostate cancers. Iodine is crucial to the treatment of these cancers.

Some benefits of adequate iodine supplementation can control and reduce:

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Breast diseases
  • Excess mucous
  • Fatigue
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Goiter
  • Ovarian disease
  • Parotid duct stone
  • Peyronie's disease
  • Nephritic syndrome
  • Prostate disorders
  • Sebaceous cysts
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Vaginal infections
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Headaches/migraines
