Raspberry Ketone

Red Clover
One of the world's oldest agricultural crops, the powerful antioxidants and phytoestrogens hold the key to its therapeutic benefits.
1) Cancer Treatment - research from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) confirms that red clover extract contains four anti-tumor compounds. Red clover also contains the powerful antioxidant tocopherol, which is a form of Vitamin E. Antioxidants help prevent cancer and other diseases by fighting dangerous free radicals in the body.
2) Menopause Alleviation - Red clover contains isoflavones, potent phytoestrogens that stimulate estrogen tissue. Isoflavones help treat hot flashes, mood swings and loss of sexual desire.

Resveratrol
Resveratrol is a substance produced naturally in plants when they undergo external (environmental) stress -- weather shocks, insect and animal attacks, pathogens, and the like. Some benefits include:
1) Powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are substances that can neutralize free radicals, which are highly reactive compounds that, if left unchecked, can lead to cellular damage. Free radicals are believed by some experts to be a major culprit in heart disease, cancer, and aging itself.
2) The study conducted by Dr. Pezzuto showed that resveratrol was effective against the progression of cancer. Most impressively, it was effective in all the major stages of cancer -- the initiation, promotion, and progression.
3) Resveratrol has been shown to help lower bad cholesterol (LDL), and, therefore, may be a potent nutrient in preventing cardiovascular disease. It has also shown to reduce the clumping of platelets. Thus, such conditions as atherosclerosis and heart attacks, which are often caused by arterial blockages, may potentially be reduced by this potent substance.

Royal Jelly
Royal Jelly is a creamy white or milky compound manufactured by worker bees. It is highly concentrated in nutrients often called a 'super food' and fed exclusively to the Queen Bee. This amazing substance contains a broad range of B vitamins, 17 amino acids (including all of the essential ones), and proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. It also contains aspartic acid, a compound which aids in cellular health. There are still, moreover, components which have not yet been fully identified. Royal Jelly, as with bee pollen and propolis, has been used as an immune system booster, due to its high amino acid content; amino acids also scavenge free radicals, which are highly reactive substances that damage cellular material within our bodies if left unchecked. Some studies have also shown it to harbor anti-tumor properties, and to fight harmful side effects caused by poor diet, the environment, and even chemotherapy. Other positive benefits include: longevity, increased energy, sexual enhancement, lowering cholesterol, weight loss, mental acuity, arthritis, asthma, and depression.

Rutin
Rutin is a nutrient that is classified as a bioflavonoid. Bioflavonoids have seen an increase in interest over the last few years as they have been attributed a wide range of health benefits. Rutin is closely related to other bioflavonoids, namely, quercitin and hesperidin. It is beleived that rutin may harbor antioxidant properties. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are highly reactive chemical substances that can cause cellular damage within the body if left unchecked. In addition, rutin may have anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. This is important because inflammation is the culprit in many of the most prominent diseases. One of the major supposed benefits is rutin for varicosities. Some experts argue that quercetin and rutin work together in helping capillary fragility and, therefore, may help those who bruise or bleed easily. Other quercetin and rutin synergistic activities (including hesperidin) is in helping to eliminate cholesterol from the body and increase elasticity of the arterial walls, which, in turn, may allow blood to flow thru more easily.
