Bacillus coagulans is a type of bacteria. It is used similarly to lactobacillus and other probiotics as "beneficial" bacteria.
This beneficial bacteria is dormant in the bottle, then reverts to a growing bacteria in the intestines. Because of this, it resists being killed by stomach acid; in contrast, many Lactobacillus probiotics lose most or all of their potency before use and do not survive their trip through the stomach.

Carotenoids are organic pigments that are found in the chloroplasts and chromoplasts of plants and some other photosynthetic organisms like algae, some bacteria, and some fungi. Carotenoids can be produced from fats and other basic organic metabolic building blocks by all these organisms. Carotenoids generally cannot be manufactured by species in the animal kingdom so animals obtain carotenoids in their diets, and may employ them in various ways in metabolism. In humans, three carotenoids (beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin) have vitamin A activity (meaning they can be converted to retinal), and these and other carotenoids can also act as antioxidants. In the eye, certain other carotenoids (lutein, astaxanthin and zeaxanthin) apparently act directly to absorb damaging blue and near-ultraviolet light, in order to protect the macula of the retina, the part of the eye with the sharpest vision.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It is found in the highest concentrations in fluids in the eyes and joints. Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, is a carbohydrate, more specifically a mucopolysaccharide occurring naturally throughout the human body. It is found in the highest concentrations in fluids in the eyes and joints.Its function in the body is, amongst other things, to bind water and to lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles. The HA provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water. With age, the ability of the skin to produce HA decreases.
A naturally occuring nutrient classified as a carbocyclic polyol. Has a major role in the collecton of fats in the liver, and hair growth. Its sweet property comes in part because of its cycloyhexanehexol component-while it is a sugar, it works differently in the body than glucose.
Iodine is a chemical element with symbol I and atomic number 53.Iodine and its compounds are primarily used in nutrition.Iodine's rarity in many soils, due to initial low abundance as a crust-element, and also leaching of soluble iodide by rainwater, has led to many deficiency problems in land animals and inland human populations. Iodine is required by higher animals, which use it to synthesize thyroid hormones, which contain the element.
Iron, one of the most abundant metals on Earth, is essential to most life forms and to normal human physiology. Iron is an integral part of many proteins and enzymes that maintain good health. In humans, iron is an essential component of proteins involved in oxygen transport. It is also essential for the regulation of cell growth and differentiation. A deficiency of iron limits oxygen delivery to cells, resulting in fatigue, poor work performance, and decreased immunity

Molybdenum is a trace mineral found in foods such as milk, cheese, cereal grains, legumes, nuts, leafy vegetables, and organ meats. The amount in plant-derived foods depends on the soil content in the growing area. Molybdenum is also present in water in varying amounts. Molybdenum is stored in the body, particularly in the liver, kidneys, glands, and bones. It is also found in the lungs, spleen, skin, and muscles. About 90% of the molybdenum eaten in foods is eliminated by the body through the urine.
Molybdenum works in the body to break down proteins and other substances. Molybdenum deficiency is very uncommon.
Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) is omega-3 rich oil extracted from Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba).This difference in absorption rate can in part be explained by a difference in chemical structure of the omega-3 fats. Fish oil is a triglyceride source of omega-3 fatty acids, NKO a phospholipid source and ethyl esters are separate fatty acids. Phospholipids are more soluble upon ingestion and, to a certain extent, can be absorbed undigested. Blood omega-3 levels are increased more after ingestion of NKO than after ingestion of equal amounts of omega-3 (120 mg EPA+DHA) in the form of fish oil or omega-3 ethyl esters.
