If you are looking for a top-of-the-line nutritional supplement company you can trust, let me introduce you to Prograde Nutrition. I call it “the best nutrition company you’ve never heard of” … even though they currently have over 100,000 customers and are growing strong!
Prograde’s products aren’t available in stores. Instead of having a big marketing budget, they put their money into research and development, and have grown mostly by word of mouth … one happy customer at a time. I think this is pretty amazing!
Prograde makes two potent supplements that can improve overall health and function of both your brain and body — EFA Icon and Longevity.
Let’s take a look at how these two products are formulated, what makes them unique, and how they can turn back the clock, especially on your aging brain.
Enhanced omega-3 essential fatty acids formula
EFA Icon: Superior omega-3-rich krill oil with astaxanthin
The discovery of omega-3s has been hailed as one of the most important health breakthroughs in modern nutrition. If you take only one nutritional supplement, the experts widely agree it should be a top-quality omega-3 supplement. (1)
Omega-3s used to be found in the food we hunted, fished, and foraged … but this essential nutrient is largely missing from our modern food supply.
Omega-3s are an anti-inflammatory powerhouse — there are few health conditions this one nutrient doesn’t help. It can help prevent cancer, heart disease, anxiety, depression, and even Alzheimer’s. (2, 3)
It’s widely agreed that taking an omega-3 supplement is one of the best things you can do for your brain. Your brain is 70% fat and omega-3s comprise a major structural component of the brain. It’s been found that people with lower amounts of this nutrient actually have smaller brains!
Fish oil has been the usual form of omega-3 supplementation, but research now shows krill oil to be superior in many ways. According to the US National Institutes of Health, krill oil is much better absorbed than fish oil. (4) The DHA molecules in krill oil are attached to phospholipids, making them more bio-available.
Krill are small shrimp found in the cold, unpolluted waters of the Antarctic. Krill contain 48x more antioxidants than fish oil and over 300x more of the antioxidant power of vitamins A and E. (5)
Krill oil is specifically more helpful for the brain because it readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, a filter your brain uses to keep most substances out.
The krill oil in EFA Icon is an excellent natural source of astaxanthin. This phytonutrient is one of the most potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory nutrients known. Astaxanthin also readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to easily neutralize free radical damage to your brain cells. Astaxanthin’s anti-aging properties can also give you healthier, younger-looking while preventing future UV light damage to your skin and your eyes. (6)
Powerful antioxidants complex
Longevity: Anti-aging antioxidant formula
There is a force at work continually damaging every cell in your body — free radicals. They attack your cells in much the same way that oxygen attacks metal, causing it to rust.
Free radicals are caused by exposure to everyday occurrences such as stress, lack of sleep, grilled meat, fried or processed foods, air pollution, and radiation from your electronics. They are even caused by breathing and exercise! Your brain is a high oxygen user which leaves it very susceptible to free radical damage.
Antioxidants slow down the cellular aging process by binding to free radicals, rendering them harmless.
You’ve witnessed free radical damage when an apple turns brown shortly after being cut open. You’ve also seen the power of antioxidants if you’ve ever applied lemon juice to keep the apple fresh. The antioxidants in the lemon juice attack the free radicals, preventing damage.
Antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables, but do you eat enough of them to stop the damage? Do you eat even the 9 recommended servings of fruits and vegetables a day? If not, free radicals and premature aging are winning the battle.
Longevity is Prograde’s anti-aging, antioxidant formula. It contains a proprietary blend of powerful antioxidants proven to help slow down aging in both the body and brain. (7) It contains a mix of the most powerful antioxidants in high concentrations.
The most potent antioxidants are not things you normally pick up at the grocery store. They are foods such as acai berries, wolfberries, or coffeeberries (the fruit of the coffee plant). A one-ounce serving of coffeeberries provides as many antioxidants as eating 28,000 grapes. One capsule of Longevity contains 40x more antioxidant power than a cup of blueberries!
Besides fighting free radical damage, the ingredients in Longevity can help your brain by improving the flexibility of blood vessels, allowing more blood flow, nutrients, and oxygen to reach your brain. They also help prevent protein plaque buildup in the brain, a condition associated with Alzheimer’s.
Whole foods-based multivitamin
VGF 25+: Complete, whole foods-based vitamin and mineral complex
Exciting new research shows that taking a multivitamin can improve brain function and keep you younger longer.
Telomeres are protective caps on the ends of chromosomes similar to the plastic tips on shoelaces. Telomere length is believed to be the most important indicator of biological age and disease risk. And the simple act of taking a high-quality multivitamin has been shown to increase telomere length. (8)
Studies have shown that taking a multivitamin alone can improve brain function. (9) Even the Harvard School of Public Health advises all adults to take a multivitamin supplement as insurance to avoid many chronic diseases, including Alzheimer’s. (10)
Prograde VGF 25+ is sourced from whole foods, not synthetic substances. The name of this multivitamin refers to the 25 whole vegetables, greens, and fruits from which it is made. It provides your daily requirements of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, amino acids, enzymes, and more.
Much research has demonstrated the nutritional superiority of whole-foods based multivitamins over the much more common synthetic variety. Many people also find that they do not experience the stomach upset that plagues them with most other brands.
Why trust your health to Prograde?
Prograde Nutrition is a top pick for many health and fitness professionals, with 100,000 customers and growing. But its products are not available in stores and they don’t advertise. So unless you hang out in the right circles, it would be very easy to have missed hearing about them. That’s why we like to call it “the best little nutrition company you’ve never heard of”. But now you’re part of the inner circle that has!
Prograde was started by two fitness professionals, Ryan Lee and Jim Labadie. They couldn’t find supplements for themselves or their clients that met their strict standards. So they started their own company. Both Ryan and Jim have been named a “top 100″ sports, health, and fitness entrepreneur.
The first thing you notice on their website is that they carry only about a dozen products. That’s because they focus their efforts on quality, not quantity. Every product they create has to have a scientific rationale for its existence and be clinically proven to deliver the desired results.
Prograde’s manufacturing facility is an “A” rated GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) facility. It’s hard to get certified and even harder to merit an “A” rating.
As a customer, this means you can be assured that you are getting what you are paying for. It’s alarming, but many supplements don’t contain what’s stated on the label!
With over 10,000 “likes” on Facebook, Prograde clearly has a happy customer base. We’ve dealt with them for years and their customer service is always excellent.
Prograde educates their customers
One thing few other nutrition companies do as well as Prograde is educate their customers. Sign up for their emails and you’ll receive an incredible amount of cutting-edge nutrition and fitness information.
We think one of Prograde’s most valuable assets is Dr. Bryan Walsh. He is frequently seen in their educational videos, making him the most recognizable face of their Research & Development team.
Click below to watch his 8-minute video Why You Should Upgrade from Fish Oil to Krill Oil. We think you’ll be impressed with his level of expertise and the way he makes complicated material easy to understand. This kind of information is appreciated by savvy people like you who want to learn about health in a more than superficial way.
Trustworthy support and a commitment to savings and convenience
There are many things that can make working with an online vendor either a pleasure or a pain. In our judgment, Prograde simply delivers on their promises. They promise excellent products and service and that’s what you get. For instance:
Products that are unconditionally guaranteed for 60 days
No ‘weasel’ clauses to watch out for. Even opened products are refunded. This is very unusual in the supplement industry.
Regular special offers and a “no commitment” autoship program
Autoshipping is a good way to lock in the brain nutrition habit. But if you ever want to cancel, most companies make it hard. Not Prograde.
Customer service that’s actually helpful
Prograde’s customer service is always excellent. There are several ways to communicate. If you call, you’ll reach someone in their office in Florida.
International customers are well served
Prograde ships to Canada, Europe, Australia, and most countries around the world.
There’s more …
Such as an email list that delivers information you’d actually like to know and more ways to save through “combo” and 6-pack product packages and a VIP membership program.
Superior omega-3-rich krill oil with astaxanthin
Don’t be part of the 99% of people who are deficient in brain-essential omega-3 EFA. Upgrade from fish oil to krill oil to keep existing brain cells healthy and create healthy new brain cells.
EFA Icon is a highly bio-available lipid-bound form of krill oil that’s also an excellent source of astaxanthin — one of the most potent antioxidants known.
These tiny, highly digestible capsules are easy to swallow and do not have an unpleasant fishy aftertaste.
If the Total Wellness Package is not for you, this is the one supplement you must take for your brain.
Anti-aging antioxidant formula
Damaging free radicals are a main cause of rapid aging. They are unavoidable … but the damage they cause is not.
This potent antioxidant formula neutralizes free radical damage and thereby stops premature brain aging. One capsule of Longevity contains 40x more antioxidant power than a full cup of blueberries, one of the best antioxidant-rich foods.
Longevity is a powerful part of the nutrition necessary for the kind of brain health and fitness you want.
Complete, whole foods-based vitamin and mineral complex
VGF 25+ is made from 25 whole vegetables, greens, and fruits to give your brain the benefits of all the co-factors present in real food. Common synthetic multivitamins can’t do this.
The vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, amino acids, enzymes, and more in this multivitamin are critical to the nourishment, protection and renewal of brain cells.
