Is our collagen powder gluten free?
Yes. It is gluten free, dairy free, corn free, and keto-friendly. The products are also free of maltodextrin, carrageenan, glyphosate, artificial sweeteners, and added sugars.
Will a vegan version of MetaPWR Advantage be available?
Collagen is synthesized by animals and available exclusively from them. Sometimes you may see products marketed as vegan collagen, however, if you look closely at the product, you realize it is usually a collection of vegan sourced amino acids, not the actual collagen tripeptides. There are vegan-friendly products and compounds that support the synthesis of collagen, in fact, Yarrow Pom Cellular Beauty capsules are vegan and fill this role.
I’m hearing that Glutathione helps with the absorption rate of NMN to increase NAD levels, is this true?
Glutathione is not needed for NMN absorption. Glutathione levels often drop when NAD+ levels drop in the body due to diabetes.
NMN helps increase both NAD+ but also Glutathione in the body.
Citrus oils have high levels of limonene. Limonene stimulates the body’s production of glutathione. We have both lemon and grapefruit essential oils in the MetaPWR Metabolic Blend.
Glutathione has many benefits for the body including promoting homeostasis within the body. The physiochemical properties of Glutathione have severely restricted the clinical development of oral dosage forms, owing to the limited membrane permeability and proneness to enzymatic degradation, primarily in the jejunum (connecting the stomach to the small intestines).
Studies have suggested Glutathione is oxidized in the jejunum, thus resulting in loss of its antioxidant activity. Basically, due to the chemical properties of Glutathione, it has limited permeability in the gut and it is prone to enzymes breaking it down and creating a molecule that is largely ineffective in its role within the system.
Some companies claim a nano glutathione but the molecule is the same size whether nano or not. As far as an oral swish product is concerned, we don’t absorb smaller molecules through the oral mucosa any better than we do the stomach. It just avoids first pass metabolism. This means that it avoids being broken down by the liver into inactive components. There is no real benefit of trying to absorb glutathione through the mouth instead of the GI tract.
Why is it recommended to take MetaPWR Assist 30 minutes before a high carbohydrate meal and take the TerraZyme Digestive Enzyme 2 hours later?
These two products have competing roles. To get the best benefit from each product take them at different times. Assist slows down the rate of complex carbohydrates; pasta, bread, cookies, pancakes, and processed foods. The TerraZyme Digestive Enzyme speeds up the digestion and absorption of macronutrients, including carbs.
