Metabolic Support

Your metabolism is responsible for your weight. “Metabolism” includes digestion, assimilation and utilization of food and food components inside the body. Here are some of the Dragon Herbs products that support healthy, effective metabolism in adults.

Lighten Up – Metabolic Support Formula - Lighten Up is an encapsulated herbal formula that contains a potent range of effective digestive and metabolically-optimizing herbs that can help promote moderate, healthy weight loss in non-obese overweight individuals when used in a program that includes exercise and reduced calorie intake. Lighten Up™ contains a full standardized dose of Gynostemma leaf gypenosides. A featured herbal ingredient in Lighten Up™ is Citrus aurantium, standardized to synephrine, which is a safe and effective metabolic enhancer. Studies have confirmed the fact that synephrine-standardized Citrus aurantium has virtually no impact on blood pressure or heart rate. Lighten Up™ contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation without causing drowsiness. Gynostemma leaf, Red and White Atractylodes, Sacred Lotus Leaf Green tea, leaf and other herbs in this formula support normal metabolic functions. *

Sweetfruit Drops -Sweetfruit from Luohanguo is approximately 300 times sweeter than sugar, but unlike sugar only has a few calories. You may add this to tea and smoothies and avoid the calories of sugar.

Salacia -Salacia has a long history of use in India to support healthy carbohydrate metabolism. It supports insulin normal sensitivity in healthy people. Salacia supports normal, healthy sugar metabolism.

Pu Erh Tea -This aged naturally fermented tea is collected from high mountain tea trees that are over 100 years old. Some of the exquisite Pu Erh teas in Dragon Herbs Pu Erh tea collection have been aged for decades after harvesting from ancient trees. Pu Erh tea is currently the rage in Asia for its fat-burning, metabolism enhancing qualities.

OptDigest -This is a modern Dragon Herbs version of a classic Chinese formula designed to aid your digestion in the stomach and small intestine. Supports better assimilation of important nutrients.

Bon Appetea for DBG -Assist your digestion and assimilation by consuming this tea of time proven herbs. These gentle but powerful herbs have been used by billions of people throughout the ages to aid digestion before, after or between meals. We use premium herbs to make Bon Appetea™. It is delicious and satisfying.

Brazilian Magic -Brazilian Magic™ is a wonderful superfood powder made from 55 superfoods, exotic superfruits, garden vegetables and herbs. All of the ingredients are grown on the ultimate organic farm in the heartland of Brazil. The water used to grow the superfood ingredients, and to process them, comes from a 30 thousand year old aquifer that provides the purest water in the world. The water is so soft that it can even dissolve essential fats (not possible with normal water). The vegetables, fruits and herbs are fermented together, slowly and naturally, in a beautiful state-of-the-art fermentation workshop. This superfoods aid metabolism. A little goes a long way. Add it to smoothies, elixirs and juice.

KimQi ProBio -Kimchi, Korean fermented vegetables, is a powerful source of living probiotic organisms and is a potent aid in our metabolism. To digest and metabolize food efficiently, you need a healthy gut microbiome. KimQi ProBio is triple coated kimchi, with over 200 different probiotic organisms. One lactic acid bacteria strain in kimchi, Lactobacillus brevis, for example, reduced the ratio of fat-forming gut bacteria to fat mitigating bacteria and inhibited NF-κB activation – very good effects for weight management.

PureTrans Resveratrol -Resveratrol is a profound metabolic enhancer at the cellular level – the business end of metabolism. Just as importantly, resveratrol modulates the composition of the gut microbiota and positively influences central energy metabolism. Resveratrol modifies concentrations of satiety hormones to produce anti-fat effects. By upregulating the expression of genes involved in maintaining tight junctions between intestinal cells, resveratrol contributes to gut barrier integrity. The composition of the gut microbiome and rapid metabolism of resveratrol determines the production of resveratrol metabolites. Resveratrol metabolites are found at greater concentrations in humans after ingestion than their trans-resveratrol itself, but they can have similar biological effects.

Never-Say-Die Enzymatic Syrup or Powder -64 wild herbs and volunteer plants are fermented together to create an enzymatically rich syrup (or powder) that aids digestion and cellular metabolism.

Gynostemma -This super-tonic herb is more than an immune tonifying adaptogenic. It is a powerful metabolism enhancer, famous in the Far East for its ability to help the body manage fat and sugar.

ProGreens -Predigested superfoods like spirulina and vegetables, this matrix is very rich in nutition and enzymes, and is a satisfying food adjunct.

Xylitol -The human body manufactures about an ounce of xylitol every day. Made from non-GMO corncobs, xylitol is a white crystal that looks like sugar, is slightly sweeter than sugar, has a cool taste, and has nearly zero calories. It helps protect the mouth and teeth from plaque and tooth decay. Use it in your diet. (Note: not for dogs – they cannot digest it).

Bromelain -Bromelain is obtained from the lower stems of the pineapple plant. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme extracted from pineapple that efficiently hydrolyzes most soluble proteins. It can be a useful digestive aid when consuming a protein rich meal. Our bromelain is a high potency bromelain providing 960 GDU (a measure of the enzyme’s activity) per capsule

Papaya Enzymes -Digestive Enzyme. Naturally sweet, vegetarian Papaya Enzyme tablets from the papaya melon are rich in proteolytic enzymes that can greatly aid the digestive process, especially meals that contain concentrated forms of protein. Papain cleaves the peptide bonds of complex proteins, breaking them down to their individual amino acids. Amino acids, of course, are necessary for the growth and repair of the body. Ingredients — Papain enzyme from Caria papaya melon, Alpha amylase enzyme, Protease enzyme.

Suprema-Dophilus -Standardized Probiotic offers a range of the most stable strains of probiotics. These acid resistant strains easily survive the stomach acids. Each Bio-Enhanced, Acid Resistant Strain (BEARS) has been specifically designed to survive stomach acid secretions during digestion, eliminating the need for enteric coating. Wonderfully, these protected probiotics have been shown to survive antibiotics.This highly concentrated multiple probiotic formula provides 5 billion viable cells per capsule, in a prebiotic blend of FOS and arabinogalactans for enhanced promotion of “friendly” bacteria and for support for the digestive and immune systems. This product does not need to be refrigerated in order to remain fresh and viable. Suprema-Dophilus may be used in conjunction with Dragon Herbs KimQi ProBio™ for a complete microbiome reboot. KimQi ProBio™ provides hundreds of different natural probiotic micro-organisms while Suprema-Dophilus provides a high count of the major ones. Ingredients — Proprietary probiotic blend (La-14, BI-04, Ls-33, Lp-115, Bb-02, BI-05, Lr-32, Lb-64), Prebiotic blend (FOS, Fiberaid® Arabinogalactan).

Spring Dragon Longevity Tea -Based on the famous metabolic enhancing tonic herb Gynostemma, Spring Dragon Longevity Tea helps digest, assimilate and metabolize food.

Endocrine Health -This is a classic tonic formulation that tonifies the pancreas, liver and endocrine system.

Tonic Alchemy -91 natural ingredients that promote ultimate nutrition and metabolic support. It contains dozens of naturally occurring enzymes and metabolic enhancers. Blended with a nut milk or even plain water, Tonic Alchemy makes a satisfying meal in and of itself, especially for those on a weight management program.

Green Tea -Green tea supports healthy digestion and metabolism. Many people who watch their weight consume green tea throughout the day. Dragon Herbs offers several excellent, high quality green teas, including instant granules and organic varieties.

Green Tea eeTee instant granules -Make yourself a cup of metabolism enhancing green tea in a matter of seconds. This tastes exactly like fresh brewed premium green tea.

Healthy Vinegar -It is famously good for those wanting to reduce weight, eliminate fat in the blood, stimulate liver function, and improve the tissues of the entire vascular system. To promote cardiovascular health, many drink it as a straight shot, about ½ oz at a time, in the morning and evening.

Oolong Tea -The most popular tea on earth is slightly fermented so that it is very easy to digest and assimilate without any digestive upset. Oolong Tea is mellow and delicious. Drink it throughout the day. Dragon Herbs offers several premium grade Oolong teas.

Black Tea -Black teas have been fermented longer than Oolong teas – so long in fact that they become very dark (black). High quality black teas are almost always mixed with flowers and spices to provide exquisite taste. They are excellent metabolic enhancers.

Bliss Tea -Dragon Herbs Bliss Teas are made with black, Oolong or green teas, mixed with globally sourced spices and delicious herbs, plus a healthy dose of a major Tonic herb. They are all metabolic enhancers, most give a lift, and all have a long term tonic benefit.

Small Volcano -Gently encourages bowel movements.

Daily Regulator -A mild formulation that encourages health bowel function.

Baicalin -Baicalin is the primary ingredient in Scutellaria baicalensis, also known simply as Scute. Baicalin has become one of the most popular nutraceuticals of our era. Baicalin appears to involve intestinal microflora for its metabolism into baicalein, the most active metabolite of baicalin. Baicalin activates AMPK, an enzyme that plays a role in cellular energy homeostasis.
