CORE+ is a BioTE nutraceutical line that features superior and essential supplements for patients suffering from a hormone deficiency. Each BioTE supplement promotes optimal hormone balance through high-quality micronutrients that are necessary for overall health, yet impossible to get from one’s daily diet. Hormone therapy supplements may offer benefits where food alone cannot.
The nutraceuticals that Ageless Expressions MedSpa is proud to carry are:
When we age, our testosterone levels drop, naturally increasing our estrogen levels. Too much estrogen can cause significant damage to our bodies. Studies have shown that people with high levels of estrogen have a higher risk of increased weight gain, bloating, water retention, and other complications. If these symptoms sound familiar, hormone therapy supplements may be right for you.
DIM, short for diindolylmethane, is a hormone “balancer.” Our DIM hormone therapy supplement is derived from broccoli and pomegranate. However, it is not a plant estrogen or an estrogen mimic, like soy isoflavones. DIM stimulates more efficient metabolism for estrogen, meaning it could help regulate the ratio of healthy to less healthy estrogen—leaving you feeling great.
When this nutraceutical is taken daily, BioTE DIM SGS+ can support weight management and be beneficial for breast, uterine, cervical, and prostate health.
Osteocalcin is a protein secreted in bones that assists with remodeling your bones by both reabsorbing older bone and laying down new healthy bone. Vitamin D3, the “sunshine vitamin,” is vital in producing osteocalcin and may improve the absorption of calcium. However, D3 needs help from the vitamin K2, a cofactor that is essential to the bone-strengthening process and is also known to help with blood circulation. Vitamin A, an antioxidant, supports these two vitamins, as well as the immune system.
This BioTE supplement includes vitamin A as retinyl palmitate, vitamin D3 as cholecalciferol, and vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7. BioTE ADK 5 contains 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 per capsule, and BioTE ADK 10 contains 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 per capsule. The hormone therapy supplement you need depends on your body. Please remember to consult a BioTE provider today to find out which is right for you.
When taken daily, BioTE ADK 5 & 10 supplements promote the positive effects of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and may help strengthen bones. Depending on the severity of your bone issues, you may choose from BioTE ADK 5 or BioTE ADK 10--the latter of which includes a higher dose of D3.
Probiotics are living microorganisms, like bacteria and yeast, that reside in your gut and are vital for your body to function properly. However, our contemporary diet and modern medicine have made it very easy for our bodies to lose the most important types of gut bacteria, causing us to slow down or become sluggish. This is when our hormone therapy supplements become an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
Both BioTE Multi-Strain Probiotics 20B and BioTE Bacillus Coagulans help support your microbiota bacteria, which are part of the microbiome—or all the bacteria and other organisms that inhabit the gut, plus the genetic material and metabolites associated with these bacteria. The microbiome plays a role in the recycling and metabolizing of our bodies’ hormones, such as thyroid hormones and estrogen.
BioTE Multi-Strain Probiotics 20B contains 20 billion active cultures per capsule and supports the digestive tract and immune function of individuals under stress, while BioTE Bacillus Coagulans contains one strain of bacteria that is strong and stable enough to survive stomach acid, retains its potency in the intestines, and is an may be beneficial for acute events and recovery, such as antibiotic use. Find out which BioTE probiotic is best for you by speaking with a provider today.
When taken daily, this BioTE supplement may help to promote good gut microbiota bacteria that support a healthy immune system, hormone and pH balance, weight management, and a steady digestive system.
Research has established the critical role of omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA in supporting cardiovascular health and blood vessel elasticity. The compound Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an intracellular (meaning present in your cells) antioxidant that’s essential for the health of tissues and organs. It particularly benefits those cells that are most metabolically active, such as those in heart muscle.
Although your body produces CoQ10, its production tends to decrease as you age. CoQ10 is stored in the mitochondria, or your cell’s power source, where one of its primary functions is to generate energy for your cells. In our BioTE supplements, we combine CoQ10 with pure fish oil to encourage your body to absorb and use CoQ10 better.
Our omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are extracted from the purest fish oil sources available through molecular distillation to ensure the removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.
When this hormone therapy supplement is taken daily, BioTE Omega 3 + CoQ10 may promote normal cardiovascular function, blood vessel function, and brain health.
The thyroid gland takes the iodine you ingest and converts it into two hormones—thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). T4 and T3 regulate your body's metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Every cell in your body depends on T4 and T3, so if you don’t have enough, you aren’t functioning well. Moreover, iodine supports healthy breast tissue by up-regulating proteins involved in estrogen metabolism.
Even if you are a healthy eater, you may benefit from BioTE supplements. Some foods can cause a relative iodine deficiency by binding to iodine, which can make the bound iodine inaccessible for thyroid hormone production. These foods include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, soy, peanuts, pine nuts, turnips, and rutabaga, although cooking these foods tends to make them less apt to do this. While these foods provide important nutrients, it is also important to ensure your body has enough iodine to function at an optimal level.
BioTE Iodine+ supplements also contain other essential ingredients—selenium and zinc. Selenium and zinc are needed to help with the formation of active thyroid hormone (T3).
When this hormone therapy supplement is taken daily, BioTE Iodine+ may provide you with a substantial amount of iodine and may help to ensure a deficiency is not impairing your hormone production.
Methylation is a critical biochemical process that has a significant impact on your body’s ability to regulate its cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive, and detoxification systems. Unfortunately, the nutrients needed to make sure optimal methylation occurs in your body are difficult to get from a daily diet, mainly due to the abundance of processed foods and lack of soil nutrients in our society. The BioTE Methyl Factors+ formula contains a healthy serving of the nutrients beneficial to this imperative bodily process.
One of methylation’s most important roles in the body is keeping our homocysteine levels in check; homocysteine is a common amino acid in your blood. Maintaining a desirable level of homocysteine is one of the leading biomarkers for the maintenance of good cardiovascular health. Our BioTE supplements may support these levels. More good news? Preventing an undesirable homocysteine level is also associated with the maintenance of bone, female reproductive, cognitive, and neurological health.
When taken daily, the BioTE Methyl Factors+ hormone therapy supplement contains five essential methylation nutrients in their most bioavailable forms: Methylfolate (5-MTHF), active B6, active B2, active methyl B12, and betaine.
Your arteries and veins have a protective “non-stick” lining called the endothelial glycocalyx. It prevents cholesterol and other particles from adhering to or penetrating the endothelial wall. It is a delicate structure that can be damaged under many conditions, such as high blood glucose, oxidative stress, and inflammation.
Arterosil contains specialized sulfated polysaccharides derived from a rare seaweed. Daily use of Arterosil helps deliver the building blocks necessary to support this natural protective lining.*
Arterosil promotes a healthy heart, supports normal circulation, helps maintain blood pressure in normal range, and helps maintain the artery wall’s protective barrier.* It also helps support healthy, youthful appearance of the skin.* In men, Arterosil helps support normal erectile function.*
