STEPHAN Essential® (Wellness International)
Nutritional Supplement

Uses: STEPHAN Essential® is a nutritional food supplement which contains specific tissue proteins supported by vitamins, minerals, herbs and amino acids that are proactive to cardiovascular and circulatory management. L-carnitine, vitamin E and linoleic acid are only some of these very important components.

Scientifically researched and a major contributor to the effects of STEPHAN Essential, L-carnitine is necessary for the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnaces of the cells. These fatty acids prove a major source for the production of energy in the heart and skeletal muscles, structures that are particularly vulnerable to L-carnitine deficiency. Appropriate levels of L-carnitine in the body have been shown to protect against cardiovascular disease, muscle disease, diabetes and kidney disease.

While vitamin E has proven beneficial in serving to boost the immune system and protect against cardiovascular disease, it has also been established as an important therapy for disorders related to neurologic symptoms. Omega 3-Oil, another important addition to STEPHAN Essential, can lower serum cholesterol levels and decrease platelet stickiness, proving beneficial in the prevention of coronary heart disease.

STEPHAN Essential may be consumed by both men and women.

Directions: Take one to two capsules per day.

Warnings: Phenylketonurics: Contains Phenylalanine.
