What Is The PDR?

The Physicians' Desk Reference is consulted by health care professionals millions of times each week. It is distributed to almost half a million MDs and chief pharmacists throughout the United States. Ninety percent of health care professionals consider this reference their most important source of reliable information and feel that it helps them in making the right decision when advising their patients which products they should use.

Our continued focus on clinical research has enabled Unicity to list Unicity Balance, along with a number of other unique products, in this prestigious reference for health care professionals.

Unicity Products Listed In The PDR

BIO-C™ DS

DESCRIPTION

Bio-C™ is a vitamin C nutritional supplement. Bio-C™ is a yellow, water-soluble, crystalline powder pressed into a tablet. Each Bio-C™ tablet consists of a proprietary blend of ascorbyl palmitate, calcium ascorbate, ascorbic acid, magnesium ascorbate, and 37.5 mg of citrus bioflavonoids. In addition to the active ingredients, each tablet contains cellulose, stearic acid, silicon dioxide, croscarmellose sodium, and magnesium stearate.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin that is used in the body to form cartilage, collagen, muscles, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can protect small molecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and lipids from damage caused by free radicals that are generated through the course of normal metabolism or through exposure to external toxins and pollutants (e.g. ultraviolet radiation from the sun or smoking). Vitamin C can also regenerate other antioxidants like vitamin E. Additionally, vitamin C is required for the synthesis of carnitine, a molecule involved in the transport of fats across the mitochondrial membrane, as well as the synthesis of norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter.1

USAGE

Take one tablet morning and night with a meal.

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

Bio-C™ is well tolerated. Some gastrointestinal discomfort may be experienced as with any dietary supplement.

HOW SUPPLIED

Available in tablets.

BIOS LIFE® C PLUS (BIOS LIFE® C)
Advanced Fiber and Nutrient Drink

DESCRIPTION

Bios Life® C Plus is a fiber-based, vitamin rich dietary supplement. Bios Life® C Plus contains a blend of soluble and insoluble fibers, phytosterols, policosanol, an extract of Chrysanthemum morifolium, vitamins, and minerals that when combined with a healthy diet and exercise may lower total serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Bios Life® C Plus is light orange in color. It is a hygroscopic crystalline powder that is generally soluble in water. Each serving of Bios Life® C Plus contains 3 g of fiber, 1 g of phytosterols, 6 mg of policosanol, and 12.5 mg of an extract of Chrysamthemum morifolium. In addition to these active ingredients, each serving of Bios Life® C Plus contains maltodextrin, citric acid, orange juice powder, sucralose, and orange flavor.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

It’s estimated that Americans consume 10-12 g of total fiber per day, less than half the amount of the recommended daily intake. Epidemiological and clinical studies have correlated high daily fiber intake with an improvement in overall health.

Bios Life® C Plus is a dietary supplement designed to increased daily fiber intake. Each serving of Bios Life® C Plus contains three grams of dietary fiber. When taken three times daily, Bios Life® C Plus contributes nearly half of the recommended daily value of fiber. Fiber supplementation has been shown to decrease preprandial and postprandial glucose levels and lower LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B levels.

In addition to fiber supplementation, Bios Life® C Plus contains a patented blend of phytosterols, policosanol, Chrysanthemum morifolium, vitamins, and minerals. This blend of ingredients optimizes cholesterol levels through a combination of four mechanisms. First, the soluble fiber matrix prevents cholesterol reabsorption in the gastrointestinal tract through bile-acid sequestration. Second, the phytosterols reduce dietary absorption of cholesterol. Third, policosanol inhibits hepatic synthesis of cholesterol mediated through HMG-CoA reductase. Fourth, Chrysanthemum morifolium provides phytonutrients that enhance conversion of cholesterol to 7-α-hydryoxycholesterol. The four mechanisms provide a synergistic approach to optimizing cholesterol levels.

SUGGESTED USAGE

Dissolve the contents of one packet or one scoop into 8 to 10 fl. oz. of liquid (water or juice) and stir vigorously. Drink immediately. Use 15-20 minutes prior to meals up to three times daily.

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

Bios Life® C Plus is well tolerated. There may be mild gastrointestinal discomfort, such as increased flatulence or loose stools, during the first month of initial use due to the increased uptake of dietary fiber. This GI disturbance usually disappears within the first thirty days. If the GI discomfort persists, reduce the number of servings of Bios Life® C Plus. If the GI discomfort further persists, stop taking the product and consult your physician. Taking this product without adequate liquid can result in complications.

HOW SUPPLIED

Bios Life® C Plus is packaged in single-serving foil packets or in bulk canisters.

BIOS LIFE PROBIONIC®
Supports a Healthy Metabolism

DESCRIPTION

ProBionic® contains four strands of live, healthy bacteria that enter the digestive system and help balance bacterial populations in the intestinal tract. This supplement is for individuals with symptoms of poor digestive health such as constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and inflammation. ProBionic® is a water-soluble, light-pink crystalline powder. The proprietary encapsulation used for ProBionic® allows the healthy bacteria to be delivered to the small intestines alive, ensuring the bacteria can confer health benefits for the user. Each packet of ProBionic® contains a 100 mg Probiotic Blend of Lactobacillus acidophilus LA 02, Lactobacil- lus rhamnosus LR 04, Bifidobacterium breve BR 03, and Bi- fidobacterium lactis BS 01, with a total of 5 billion cells. In addition to these live bacteria, each 2 g packet also contains xylitol, natural berry flavor, citric acid, and silica.

.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Your body needs good bacteria to help with detoxification, food digestion, waste removal, production of vitamins, and protection from harmful organisms. When the intestinal bacteria is imbalanced and unhealthy bacteria dominate, the body is less able to fight off infection resulting in inflam- mation. The individual strains used in ProBionic® are help- ful for maintaining overall gut health.

The proprietary encapsulation used in ProBionic® allows healthy strains of bacteria to be delivered to the digestive system alive and undisturbed. This also ensures the bac- teria will remain alive throughout their shelf life.

SUGGESTED USAGE

The contents of the packet can be taken dry, or they can be mixed with 8-10 fl. oz. of liquid (water or juice) and con- sumed. Use one packet daily

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

ProBionic® is generally well tolerated. As with any dietary supplement, some gastrointestinal discomfort may be expe- rienced.

HOW SUPPLIED

ProBionic® is packaged in single-serve foil packets.

ENZYGEN® PLUS
Support a Healthy Digestive System*

DESCRIPTION

In digestion, enzymes liberate and break down nutrients from food that become the building blocks for cell growth and regeneration. Proper enzyme levels are crucial to a healthy body. In order to provide a balanced blend of specific enzymes and help break down foods in digestion, Enzygen® Plus contains a wide variety of unique enzymes that aid in digestion. The enzymes found in Enzygen® Plus help break down various types of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins to help convert food into useful nutrients for the body. Addi- tionally, Enzygen® Plus helps to promote proper digestion and helps the stomach maintain proper acidity.

The five basic categories of enzymes include lipase for breaking down oils and fats, cellulase to break down fibers, amylase for breaking down starches, lactase for dairy prod- ucts, and protease to break down proteins.

There are many different enzymes in Unicity’s proprietary blend of enzymes found in Enzygen® Plus. These include different forms of amylase, protease, lipase, catalase, lac- tase, cellulase, hemicellulase, invertase, peptidase, brome- lain, papain, superoxide dismutase, beta-glucanase, and phytase.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Our bodies need proper levels of active enzymes in order to conduct a variety of tasks, including digestion. While en- zymes occur naturally in our bodies and in plants, they can be destroyed by pesticides, pollution, processes used to cook or irradiate foods, and chemical additives. Enzygen® Plus supplements your enzyme supply to help your body break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, convert foods to useful nutrients, and complete proper digestion.

Enzymes are natural substances created in plant, animal and human cells, and they play a vital role in digestion. There are more than 2,700 identified enzymes in the human body, and each affects a unique chemical reaction. The body relies on properly functioning enzymes to assist with breathing, digestion, growth, blood coagulation, sensory perception, reproduction, and other functions.

Enzygen® Plus contains a wide variety of enzymes and other ingredients that may aid digestion by breaking down food in the digestive system, stimulating the release of es- sential nutrients from food.

SUGGESTED USAGE

Take one capsule three times daily with food.

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

Enzygen® Plus is generally well tolerated. As with any di- etary supplement, some gastrointestinal discomfort may be experienced.

HOW SUPPLIED

Available in capsules.

IMMUNIZEN®
Support a Healthy Immune System*

DESCRIPTION

Immunizen® is a dietary supplement for strengthening and fortifying the immune system.
Immunizen® is a modestly water-soluble, white crystalline powder. Immunizen® consists of a proprietary ingredient blend of colostrum, arabinogalactan, 1,3, 1,6 yeast beta- glucans, and lactoferrin. In addition to the active ingredi- ents, each 835 mg capsule of Immunizen® contains natural gelatin, stearic acid, and silicon dioxide.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Immunizen® combines the positive immune modulating ef- fects of colostrum, arabinogalactans, yeast beta-glucans, and lactoferrin to boost your body’s natural defenses to for- eign antigens. Colostrum is composed of immunoglobulins that bolster the body’s immune system by providing immu- nity against various pathogens.

JOINT MOBILITY™
Promotes Healthy Joints*

DESCRIPTION

Joint Mobility is a nutritional supplement for overall joint health.
Joint Mobility contains Undenatured Type II Collagen, Tur- meric Extract (95% Curcumin), Boswellia Extract and Vitamin D3 as active ingredients, and also includes micro- crystalline cellulose and silicon dioxide. This supplement is for individuals with joint pain and discomfort caused from normal wear and tear.

Joint Mobility is a powder filled capsule that takes on the yellow color of Turmeric. Compared to more traditional joint supplements, Joint Mobility is a small dose at just 881 mg per day. These smaller capsules are ideal for individuals who have trouble taking large capsules or pills.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Many people suffer daily from joint pain and discomfort caused from years of overuse or from being overweight or obese. Joint pain and a loss of mobility can dramatically af- fect quality of life, making simple everyday activity difficult and painful. The ingredients contained in Joint Mobility work in several different ways to help maintain overall joint health. Curcumin and Boswellia extract have been shown to downregulate the genes involved in chronic inflammation. Vitamin D3 has been shown to help increase collagen pro- duction which is needed to maintain overall joint health. Joint Mobility works in several different ways for a multi- faceted approach to joint health. The ingredients contained have been shown to inhibit proinflammatory pathways, and also help to prevent the breakdown of joint collagen allow- ing the body to repair and heal itself.

OMEGALIFE-3™
Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation

DESCRIPTION

OmegaLife-3™ is a blend of omega-3 fatty acids designed to help maintain healthy cardiovascular and cerebral function. OmegaLife-3™ is an amber-colored, semi-viscous, fat- soluble liquid. Each serving of OmegaLife-3™ contains the following active ingredients: 800 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), 400 mg docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and vitamin E. In addition, it also contains the inactive ingredients gelatin, glycerin, purified water, and orange oil. OmegaLife-3™ has been molecularly distilled to ensure exceptionally pure oil and includes orange oil to prevent a fishy aftertaste.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Clinical research suggests fish oil can help support proper brain and visual function. In 2002 the FDA approved sup- plementation of DHA in infant formula. DHA is potentially important in fetal and infant neural development, in that DHA and arachidonic acid have been shown to be incorpo- rated into brain and retinal cell membranes—particularly during the third trimester of pregnancy and early infant life.

DHA is the predominant structural fatty acid in the central nervous system and in the retina of the eyes.
EPA supports the synthesis of important compounds in the body. EPA is the precursor of thromboxane and leukotriene, compounds involved in supporting healthy circulation. They also promote healthy blood vessels.

Evidence is accumulating that increasing intakes of EPA and DHA can decrease the risk thrombosis, decrease triglyc- eride levels, and decrease inflammation.1
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated, “Supportive but not conclusive research shows that con- sumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”

UBIQUINOL-CoQ10
(Also known as CoQ10 Advanced Formula)

DESCRIPTION

As we age, levels of CoQ10 in the body decrease, causing the degeneration of cells. This may contribute to age-related conditions. Ubiquinol CoQ10 provides essential nutrients that may benefit the heart; it also contains antioxidants that may combat free-radical damage as well as help to nat- urally sustain healthy levels of CoQ10 in people as they age. Ubiquinol CoQ10 is a high-potency formula of Ubiquinol along with sunflower oil, yellow beeswax, and sunflower lecithin to increase solubility and bioavailability. CoenzymeQ10 (CoQ10) is found naturally in the body and plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Ubiquinol (CoQ10) is found naturally in the body and plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells. The body requires a sufficient amount of CoQ10 in order to func- tion optimally. This product may help enhance the effective- ness of the immune system. Some research has shown that a CoQ10 deficiency may contribute to possible side effects in persons taking statin medications. CoQ10 may support heart health and may assist the body in energy production in cells. CoQ10 is also an antioxidant that may protect cells from free radicals.

UNICITY BALANCE™
(Also known as Bios Life® Slim or Bios Life® S)
Formula for Healthy Cholesterol Support

DESCRIPTION

Unicity Balance™ (also known as Bios Life® Slim or Bios Life® S) is a fiber-based, vitamin-rich nutritional supple- ment. Unicity BalanceTM contains a blend of soluble and in- soluble fibers, Unicity® 7× technology, phytosterols, polico- sanol, an extract of Chrysanthemum morifolium, vitamins, and minerals that when combined with a healthy diet and exercise may lower total serum cholesterol, and help achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

Unicity Balance™ is light orange in color. It is a hygroscopic crystalline powder that is generally soluble in water. Each serving of Unicity Balance™ contains 4 g of fiber, 1 g of phy- tosterols, 750 mg of Unicity 7×, 6 mg of policosanol, and 12.5 mg of an extract of Chrysanthemum morifolium. In ad- dition to these active ingredients, each serving of Unicity Balance™ contains maltodextrin, citric acid, orange juice powder, sweeteners, and orange flavor.

BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

It’s estimated that Americans consume 10-12 g of total fiber per day, less than half the amount of the recommended daily intake. Epidemiological and clinical studies have correlated high daily fiber intake with an improvement in overall health.

Unicity Balance™ is a nutritional supplement designed to increase fiber intake. Each serving of Unicity Balance™ contains four grams of fiber. When taken three times daily, Unicity Balance™ contributes half of the recommended daily value of fiber. Fiber supplementation has been shown to decrease preprandial and postprandial glucose levels, lower LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B levels, increase satiety, and facilitate weight loss.

In addition to fiber supplementation, Unicity Balance™ contains a patented blend of phytosterols, policosanol, Chry- santhemum morifolium, vitamins, and minerals. Unicity Balance™ facilitates weight loss through five distinct mechanisms. First, the soluble fiber matrix promotes an in- crease in satiety. Second, Unicity BalanceTM improves cho- lesterol levels. Reduction in LDL content removes a potent inhibitor of lipolysis. Third, Unicity Balance™ improves blood glucose levels. Appropriate serum glucose levels help maintain many metabolic processes in the body. Reducing insulin levels permits fatty acid oxidation to occur. Fourth, Unicity Balance™ restores appropriate leptin signaling. Lastly, Unicity Balance™ reduces triglyceride levels allow- ing for leptin to cross the blood-brain barrier and affect its mechanism of action.
