Vegetarian Special

Sometimes it’s hard to find supplements designed with vegetarians in mind. This is particularly true of oil-filled products.

Did you know it is difficult to make a vegetable-based capsule that can hold oils? There are a few options, but most require very large batches. That’s why you see more vegetarian options in two-piece (dry-fill) capsules and mostly gelatin for liquid-filled capsules.

To keep our batches fresh and our costs feasible, we can’t always offer vegetarian alternatives, but we are working to add more veggie products. Here are some of the highlights we currently offer.

ALA/ALC/Carnosine/GSE is one of our original anti-aging formulas.

  • Increase energy
  • Fight aging
  • Decrease wrinkles
  • Cellular integrity

Total Eye Care was created at Terry’s clinic to provide nutrients specifically studied for eye preservation in the age related eye disease study (AREDS).

  • Nourish and protect eyes
  • Unique formula designed by Ray & Terry
  • Based on Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS)

Astaxanthin is a unique natural antioxidant that has been proven to nourish the eyes and brain. Our vegetarian liquid-cap holds 4mg of patented Zanthin®.

B-12 and You

The vegetarian diet is a heart healthy diet. However, there are several key nutrients that are not plentiful in a vegetarian diet.

New research indicates that vegetarians, and especially vegans, may have an increased risk of heart disease because of a dietary tendency towards inadequate intake of omega-3 and vitamin B12. 

Vegetarians that have low levels of B-12 in their blood may have low arterial function as well, leaving them susceptible to heart disease. In one study, vitamin B-12 supplementation improved arterial function in vegetarians with subnormal vitamin B-12 levels.

Vitamin B-12 levels also decline with age and after stomach surgery, due to lower absorption rates. We suggest that you discuss testing with your doctor during your next physical, if you suspect your levels are low.

Omega-3s are commonly known to help protect heart health. The most common source is fish oil, but of course there are algae-based formulas as well. Vegetarians should be aware that the levels of EPA and DHA are typically lower in algae-based options (with the ratio favoring DHA). It is also important to note that DHA alone is not sufficient and EPA should also be included for optimal benefit.
