Added Benefits of Bromelain
Ever taken a bite of a spicy dish and suddenly felt red & hot? Might have been a bit of Cayenne; a pepper in the Capsicum family used in cooking and herbal therapy. Capsicum Annum is well known for its heat producing abilities and its high concentration of Capsaicin, the chemical compound responsible for its ability to function as a circulation tonic and opener. This effect has far reaching benefits in the body as healthy blood flow is needed for cardiac, brain, and all tissue health.
The mechanism of increased blood flow after Cayenne ingestion is vasodilation of the circulatory system. By dilating small vessels and capillaries in the extremities of the body, blood flow to these regions is increased. This results in the surrounding tissues being warmed and cleansed by the blood; they also receive more oxygen and nutrients. A daily dose of Cayenne can certainly be of benefit to those who perpetually suffer from cold hands and feet but the circulatory benefits of Cayenne involve many systems of the body. Blood pressure is reduced when the vessels of the extremities are vasodilator and the heart experiences a reduced work load.
Memory and mental abilities can improve with increased blood flow to the brain and libido and sexual functioning can dramatically improve due to heightened blood flow in the genital tissues. Used topically, Cayenne can increase circulation and warmth in tissues to reduce joint, muscle and nerve pain. It also has anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties as well as incredible pain blocking abilities. Current research has revealed that capsaicin has tremendous potential to reverse insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus and it is being explored as an anti-cancer agent by a number or research groups.
Our Old Fashion Brand Cayenne is 600 mg with 40,000 Heat Units per capsule.
COLLOIDAL SILVER 10 PPM (Anti-Biotic, Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial)
Prior to 1938, Colloidal Silver (CS) was touted as a cure-all by many health professionals. It was widely accepted that silver was an anti-bacterial and anti-viral health supplement. Silver products were even prescribed by physicians as topical antibiotics.
Then, over the years natural products began to take a back seat to today’s antibiotics and prescription drugs. Many natural products including Colloidal Silver were put on the shelf and forgotten about. Recently, CS has regained some of its previous popularity as an effective immune-enhancing product. In fact, not to long ago, Johnson & Johnson began to include trace amounts of silver in their bandages for the healing effect it has.
Many studies over the years have proven that CS does indeed have both anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. It also has many other benefits taken both topically and internally.
In short, its many benefits include:
Unlike many of the brands on the market, Old Fashion Brand Colloidal Silver is unique in its manufacturing process. The problem with many brands is that they do not deliver a consistent dosage of silver in each serving. Silver molecules, by nature, tend to cluster together because of their chemical makeup. Old Fashion Brand CS is stabilized with over 20 Amino Acids, to ensure optimal, consistent dosage every time. The coating of amino acids also helps the silver to be absorbed by the body. This ensures that you are getting the most of the CS that you are taking!
ECHINACEA MASTER BLEND (Immune Boosting)
Old Fashion Brand Echinacea is a non-toxic herbal immune enhancer and antibiotic substitute. Created with Echinacea Angustifolia and Echinacea Purpurea, the two compounds believed to be the key components behind Echinacea’s health benefits and tremendous antioxidant activity.
The extensive research performed in Germany has shown that Echinacea increased the number and activity of the white blood cells involved in the immune response. Researchers at the University of Munich discovered Echinacea to increase the T-cells in the body by over 30% and a study published in the Journal of Medical Chemistry showed that Echinacea inhibited tumor growth in rats. Echinacea is considered effective in the combat against many infectious conditions including colds and flu, sinusitis, staphylococcus, streptococcus, urinary tract infections, and more. Echinacea is a member of the daisy family so individuals who are allergic to daisy flowers should take Echinacea with caution.
Although designed for short term immune stimulation, the safety of long-term use of Echinacea has been well documented. With the best of both Echinacea species, Echinacea Master Blend supplies amazing immune boosting potential to help combat both viral & bacterial infections. Our Old Fashion Brand Echinacea Master Blend is a liquid formula for faster absorption & quicker infection fighting and immune strengthening ability. For added antibiotic properties we also have a liquid Echinacea & Goldenseal Blend in our Old Fashion Brand.

GLUCOSAMINE/CHONDROITIN 900mg (Cartilage Repair)
It is the only agent known that can stop or reverse the biggest crippler of all - osteoarthritis. Glucosamine has the role of keeping the cartilage fluid and functional, reduces pain, improves joint function and eliminates the enzymes that cause cartilage damage. Chondroitin sulfate is a long-chain sugar molecule that is found in joints and connective tissues. These molecules help attract fluid into the cartilage. This fluid helps to absorb the shock in the joints and assists in moving nutrients to the cartilage. Chondroitin also inhibits the enzymes that destroy cartilage. Several studies have clearly demonstrated that chondroitin helps build new cartilage and after an 8-12 week trial some improvement should definitely be noticed.
Dr. Theodosakis recommends 1,000 mg of glucosamine and 800 mg of chondroitin for those weighing under 120 pounds; 1,500 mg of glucosamine and 1,200 mg of chondroitin for those between 120 and 200 pounds; 2,000 mg of glucosamine and 1,600 mg of chondroitin for those over 200 pounds. He suggests dividing the above amounts into 2 - 4 doses. Old Fashion Foods now offers glucosamine/chondroitin combination in vegi-capsules containing the ideal ratio of 500-mg glucosamine sulfate and 400-mg chondroitin sulfate. While glucosamine is now frequently recommended for osteoarthritis new research shows it is of benefit for any condition that involves repair of cartilage and joints . . . including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, invertebral disc conditions, chondromalacia, tendinitis, bursitis, postsurgical repair of traumatic injury to joints, traumatic injury to joints, and tenosynovitis.
GLUCOSAMINE SULPHATE - 500 MG
Dr. Julian Whitaker, a holistic physician in the United States, wrote about the benefits of glucosamine sulfate in 1993. He found that this nutrient helps to repair the ravages of arthritis by giving the body the necessary building blocks to produce connective tissue. He described glucosamine sulfate is to connective tissue what wheat is to bread. Found in high concentrations in the joint space, glucosamine sulfate stimulates connective tissue productions and the repair of the arthritic joint.
In general, Dr. Whitaker explained, all forms of arthritis - rheumatoid arthritis, gout or arthritis due to injury - become osteoarthritis eventually. Osteoarthritis, the “end stage” of arthritis, progresses with destruction of the cartilage that cover the articular surfaces of the bone, allowing bone to rub on bone. Strong drugs and finally surgery to replace worn down hips and knees are what some unfortunate patients have come to expect.
What makes glucosamine sulfate so extraordinary is that it not only reduces pain and helps to actually rebuild cartilage, but there are no known side effects. Connective tissue is made up of two main components. The first is collagen. The second is a long chain made up mainly of sugars called glucosaminoglycans (GAGs). These GAGs are the tissue framework that collagen holds onto. Collagen and GAGs together continuously construct and reconstruct your tendons and ligaments. Taking glucosamine supplements can increase GAG levels by up to 170%. Also, the sulfur component of glucosamine sulfate may be critical to the beneficial effects noted. Sulfur is an essential nutrient for joint tissue. Research going back to the 1930’s has demonstrated that individuals with arthritis are often deficient in sulfur.
Glucosamine sulfate also plays a role in the formation of nails, tendons, skin, eyes, synovial fluid, bone, ligaments, heart valves, and the mucous secretion of the digestive, respiratory and urinary tract.
Those who are suffering from joint disease can also do the following: determine food allergies, exercise and follow a nutritional program including herbal remedies and Vitamins B, E and C. Other essential nutrients include the essential fatty acids, omega 3 (in flax seed oil and fish oil) and omega 6 (in evening primrose oil) which can all be found in our Old Fashion Brand. Most successful studies have been documented with the patient taking 500 mg of Glucosamine Sulfate 3 time per day. Be patient, it may take 6 weeks to 3 months before you get results!
GRAPE SEED EXTRACT (Antioxidant)
Proanthocyanidin is a natural, plant-extract bioflavonoid that is considered the most powerful antioxidant known to man. Research has shown that as an antioxidant it is 20 times more powerful than Vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E! Easily absorbed by the body, this water-soluble flavonoid has a unique ability to eliminate damaging free radicals therefore reducing inflammation, rebuilding collagen, repair damaged tissue and restore flexibility to arthritis damaged joints. It is said to improve circulation, strengthen capillaries and the cardiovascular system, improve skin elasticity and smoothness, and reactivate damaged collagen. Old Fashion Brand Grape Seed Extract contains 60mg of standardized 95% proanthocyanidins, one of the highest available.
GUGGULIPID (Triglycerides & Cholesterol)NATURE’S WAY TO CONTROL CHOLESTEROL LEVELS……….
Guggulipid is derived from the mukul myrrh tree, a small thorny tree 4 to 6 feet tall, that is native to Arabia and India. Gugglipid offers considerable benefit in preventing and treating atherosclerotic vascular disease (Heart disease). It is most effective in lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It also raises the level of good cholesterol (HDL). Guggul exhibits a cholesterol lowering ability unlike any other natural substance. In human trials, using guggulipid, the cholesterol levels dropped 14 to 27 percent in a 4 to 12 week period while the triglyceride levels dropped from 22 to 30 percent.

MSM (Anti-Inflammatory & Pain Reliever)What Is It?
Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM, is an organic, natural sulfur assimilate derived from the ocean. Sulfur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body, and is found in every cell of every animal and plant. MSM is a pure, natural white odorless crystalline powder. MSM is not a drug or a medicine, and is unrelated to sulfa drugs to which some people have an allergy. One of the most significant applications of organic sulfur is its ability to alleviate pain associated with systemic inflammatory disorders as arthritis.MSM and Arthritis
People with arthritis report substantial and long-lasting relief while supplementing MSM in their diet. The beneficial effect is due to the ability of MSM to sustain cell flow- through, allowing harmful substances to flow out while permitting nutrients to flow in, preventing pressure build-up in cells that cause inflammation in the joints and elsewhere, and translates to pain.MSM and Pain Relief
The nerves which sense pain are mainly located in the soft tissue of our bodies such as the muscles. Many types of pain can be attributed to pressure differential involving the cells that make up tissue. When outside pressure drops, cells swell and become inflamed.
MSM has been used as a dietary supplement for many years with no reports of intolerance of allergic reactions. Long-term studies indicate that MSM exhibits very low toxicity no matter how it is administered. Along with our Old Fashion Label MSM 950 mg capsules we also carry a range of topical pain relievers containing MSM, which when taken together often offer more immediate results. The effects of supplemental MSM may take 3 weeks for the effects to be noticed.

ULTRA ENZYMES - 100% PLANT SOURCE
THE IMPORTANCE OF ENZYMES………
It has been said that the most important thing we can do for our health is to look after our digestive system. Enzymes play a key role in digestion, so it follows that they are very important nutrients for our health. Their main role is to help break down the food & nutrients that we eat, so that they can be absorbed & utilized by the body.
Taking a supplement of plant based enzymes is a sure way to make certain that we have an ample supply of enzymes for our digestive system, as well as for our metabolism (which they aid in as well).
Cooking food can, and often does, destroy important enzymes that we should be getting from our food, as does canning, pasteurizing, and microwaving. Enzymes are quite sensitive to heat and are the first nutrients to be destroyed during cooking.
Plant enzymes are beneficial in that they start working on digesting our food for at least an hour before the food moves from the stomach to the small intestine for further digestion. Because our stomach is very acidic, plant enzymes are perfect because they are more able to withstand an acidic environment & not be destroyed.
OLD FASHION FOODS plant enzymes combine an optimal amount of all these enzymes to help ensure that you are getting the most from your foods and supplements.Protease - digests protein
Amylase - digests carbohydrates
Lipase - digests fats
Cellulose - digests fiber
Lactase - digest lactose (milk and dairy)
Bromelain - also aids in digesting protein
