Are the building
blocks of protein. Your body is primarily made of protein. And
protein in turn, is made up of chains of amino acids What distinguishes
all amino acids is that they all have a group of atoms, (amine group),
made of 1 atom of nitrogen & 2 atoms of hydrogen-(NH2).
- Also known as
"hardening of the arteries." A disease where plaque-(unwanted
gunk) builds up on the inner surface of the artery walls.
The plaque is mainly composed of 3 things.
a blood clotting material which contains Calcium.
- The inner surface of a tubular structure in the body, in this case the
inner surface of the arteries.
Free-Form Amino Acids
Individual amino acids that are unattached to each other or
anything else & therefore able to be immediately absorbed into the
blood stream with no digestion necessary. Since, unlike
proteins, free-form amino acids require absolutely no
digestion, they can be absorbed by anyone no matter how old they may
be or the condition of their digestive system. Also, unlike
proteins, free-form amino acids can be taken on an empty stomach
such as right before a workout. Whereas proteins have to have a
mass of food sufficient to stimulate the release of digestive
juices. This is why most protein supplements are presented as
blender drinks. Free-form amino acids are not to be confused with
so-called "predigested protein."
Negative nitrogen balance
- The condition of
excreting more amino acids & protein than one is taking in. This
makes it difficult to maintain ones body since the body's tissues
are mainly made of protein & amino acids which require constant
maintenance & repair.
- the substance from which another
substance is made.
- Chains of some combination of the 20 so-called "proteogenic" amino acids.
(proteogenic means to generate protein). In other words their
are only 20 amino acids from which all proteins in all organic life
both animal & vegetable are made. Not all 20 are in every protein, but
nothing else but some portion of the 20 proteogenic amino acids in
repetitive long chains often approx. 100,000 amino acids long are what all
proteins in all life are made from.

A sustained release B
complex formula (in a time released specially coated tablet), plus
co-factors and antioxidants. Sustained release makes sense in a
B-Complex because B vitamins are water soluble & not well retained by
the body, they go right through you,
turn your piss orange, & they are gone - unless taken in a sustained
release form. That is, unless you have digestive
difficulty, thus making it difficult for you to digest the sustained
release tablet coating, In that case it is better to use B-Complete in
the more absorbable capsule form.
1-2 Tablet's per day, or as needed, with food. B-Long is the first choice
for a B-Complex, except for those with digestive problems that might
interfere with the dissolution and absorption of this specially prepared

Recommended to Enhance Structure &
Function Relating to Nutritional Needs and Deficiencies Pertaining to:
Releasing B-Vitamins during an extended
period to provide the cells with the nutrients needed for maximum
Krebs’ cycle activity.
Providing a B Complex with all the
B-Vitamins, including the active forms of B-2 and B-6.
Sufficient amounts of folic acid, along
with B-6 and B-12, to help prevent and reduce homocysteine levels,
which are associated with heart attacks and strokes.
Helping to metabolize amino acids,
carbohydrates and lipid synthesis.
Maintaining proper neurotransmitter
function and a healthy nervous system.
Helping to combat stress.
Providing antioxidants to help prevent
free radical damage.
WHY IS SUSTAINED RELEASE IMPORTANT?
B-Vitamins are essential for amino acid
metabolism, and healthy brain, cell, and nerve function. There is no
storage capacity for B-Vitamins, and excessive amounts, which are not
immediately utilized, are excreted. Therefore, it is best to provide
these nutrients in small amounts over an extended time. The sustained
release tablet provides a longer acting delivery system to insure proper
function of the Krebs’ cycle, and provide the necessary biochemistry for
healthy cell activity.
What are the Functions of
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamin) is necessary for
proper function of the nervous system, and muscles, including the
heart muscle. It is involved in glucose metabolism and is essential
for energy production.
Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin) is important for
healthy skin, mucous membranes and energy metabolism.
Vitamin B-3 (Niacin or Niacinamide) works
in the glycogen energy cycle, oxidating fatty acids for energy.
Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine and the active
Pyridoxal 5’Phosphate) is essential for amino acid metabolism,
hemoglobin formation, and a healthy nervous system.
Vitamin B-12 (Cyanocobalamin) is essential
for all cells, including red and white blood cells, as well as a
healthy nervous system. It is also essential to help prevent harmful
Folic Acid is important for healthy cell
production, including red and white blood cells, and it helps prevent
and reduce harmful homocysteine levels, which can cause heart attacks
and strokes. There is also growing evidence of its anticarcinogenic
properties, especially against lung, colon & cervical cancers. It also
helps prevent birth defects.
Pantethine or Pantothenic Acid (B-5) has
multiple roles in energy metabolism, is a coenzyme, and is important
for proper neurotransmitter health. It is also known as the “stress
Biotin is important for gluconeogenesis
and fatty acid synthesis, and is essential for healthy hair, skin and
Choline Bitarate is important for nerve
transmission to the brain and a healthy nervous system, as well as
regulation of the gallbladder and proper liver function.
Inositol, a Lipotropic, works with Choline
and biotin to control hypertension and arteriosclerosis, as well as
metabolizing fatty acids, lowering cholesterol and controlling fatty
deposits on the liver.
Niacinamide is a vasodilator with an
affect on cholesterol, hormones and growth.
Para-Amino Benzoic Acid (PABA) a component
of folic acid, is an antioxidant, and helps maintain healthy flora
balance of the intestine.
What is Homocysteine?
High levels of Homocysteine can be corrosive & damage the inner
surface of the blood vessel linings,
exposing the underlying layers of blood vessels forming clots, which can
lead to heart attacks and strokes. This has been noted in many medical
studies in journals, including New England Medical Journal, JAMA and
Homocysteine naturally occurs from
sulphur-bearing amino acid
metabolism. The sulphur-bearing amino acids are Methionine,
Cystine & Cysteine. (Taurine is also a sulphur-bearing amino
acid but can not be metabolized to Homocysteine). Whether one has high or low levels of homocysteine
depends upon whether one has high or low levels of three B vitamins -
B-6, B-12 and Folic acid. Adequate intake of B-6, B-12 and Folic acid are necessary to prevent excessive
buildup of homocysteine levels, which can cause
Why are Antioxidants
Antioxidants are molecules that help
attack “free radicals”, which can damage healthy cells and lead to aging
and degenerative diseases. They are anticarcinogenic, important for
cardio-vascular health, and have many other beneficial properties. The
antioxidants included for increased protection in this unique B-LONG
SUSTAINED RELEASE complex are:
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID is a powerful
antioxidant that helps destroys more “free radicals” than any ather
antioxidant, and enhances the effects of other antioxidants.
BILBERRY EXTRACT has powerful anti-aging
LYCOPENE (found in tomatoes) has high
antioxidant properties, and is especially important for prostate
GINKGO BILOBA EXTRACT has free radical
scavenging properties, and platelet activating factor, contributing to
protection of vascular endothelia. It also helps protect brain
functions associated with memory and may prevent hypoxic damage and
other changes in neurotransmitter functions caused by aging.
PINE BARK (a flavonoid) EXTRACT helps
prevent nitric oxide deficiencies, and has anti-inflammatory
properties. It also potentates other antioxidants, such as Vitamin C,
Vitamin E and Glutathione.
GRAPE SEED EXTRACT is high in flavonoids
and free radical scavenging activity. It inhibits stomach mucosal
injury, and may help prevent gastric ulcers and intestinal adenomas,
as well as increasing glutathione levels. It is anticarcinogenic and
helps prevent cataracts.
ZINC is a mineral that is a free radical
terminator, is important for prostate health, and is involved in
numerous biological actions.
TAURINE, (an amino acid) helps combat
“free radicals” found in smog, and potentiates the action of Vitamin
MAGNESIUM OXIDE is important for enzyme
activity. It is also essential for calcium and potassium uptake and is
necessary for cardiovascular health.
