Synergies


Enhanced or new effects can be obtained when multiple supplements are consumed together.

Search by:

Increase of Absorption
It is the movement of a supplement from its site of application into the bloodstream.

Increase of Adaptations to Exercise
Physical exercise causes physiological adaptations on the human body, such as muscle growth. These adaptations can improve future physical performance.

Increase of Antioxidant Potential
Antioxidants are man-made or natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage, such as the damage caused to cells by free radicals. Antioxidants are found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables. They are also available as dietary supplements.

Decrease of Appetite
It's the craving to eat food, generated by hunger. Tasty foods can generate appetite even if there's no hunger. This craving can be reduced by satiety after eating. Appetite is regulated by resting metabolic rate, depending on daily energy expenditure.

Increase of Bioavailability
Bioavailability is a subcategory of absorption and is the fraction of an administered supplement that reaches the systemic circulation.

Decrease of Blood Glucose
It's the amount of glucose circulating on the blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth.

Increase of Bone Mineral Density
Bone mineral density (BMD) measures how much calcium and other types of minerals are in the bones. This helps doctors to detect osteoporosis and predict any risk for bone fractures.

Decrease of Carbohydrate Absorption
When food is digested, carbohydrates are broken down into a sugar called glucose. The stomach and small intestines absorb the glucose and then release it into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, glucose can be used immediately for energy or stored in our bodies, to be used later. However, the body need insulin to use or store glucose for energy. Without insulin, glucose stays in the bloodstream, keeping blood sugar levels high.

Decrease of Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a fat-like substance that's found in all cells of the body. If there is too much cholesterol in the blood, it can cause a buildup of fatty plaque where coronary arteries become narrow or blocked.

Increase of Cognition
Cognition is the process of obtaining knowledge through the sense to learn new things. Naturally, this ability becomes more limited as we age.

Decrease of DHT
It's a derivative of the male hormone testosterone. When DHT binds to receptors in hair follicles, they shrink and cause hair loss. The level of sensitivity of hair follicles to DHT is hereditary.

Increase of Effectiveness
The extent to which a supplement achieves its intended effect.

Increase of Erections
It is a physiological effect in which the penis becomes firm, engorged, and enlarged. This effect naturally becomes weaker as men age.

Increase of Fat Oxidation
Normally, the body uses glucose as a source of energy, and burns calories via glucose oxidation. Fat oxidation is the use of fatty acids for caloric expenditure, instead of glucose. This is preferred when you are looking to lose body fat.

Increase of Fertility
It is the ability to produce offspring. For men, it's related to the quality of semen, for women it is related to the ability to become pregnant through normal sexual activity.

Decrease of Free Fatty Acids
They are by-products of the metabolism of fat in adipose tissues. Free fatty acids are the major fat fuel in the body, and when they are elevated in the blood they may raise the risk of cardiovascular disease via insulin resistance (in some cases leading to diabetes). They may also raise blood pressure, among other negative effects.

Increase of Insulin
Insulin is a hormone that helps introduce glucose into body cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in the blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with the heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth.

Decrease of Lipid Absorption
A lipid is a molecule that doesn't dissolve in water. Lipids are digested and then absorbed in the small intestine. This absorption reduces the formation of fatty plaques in the arteries.

Decrease of Lipid Peroxidation
It is the process in which free radicals cause oxidative damage to lipids in cells.

Increase of Memory
It is the ability to store information in the brain, which is later recalled when needed. This ability generally diminishes as we age.

Increase of Metabolic Rate
It is the number of calories needed to maintain regular body functions. This amount depends on the daily energy expenditure that we generate with various activities throughout the day.

Increase of Sedation
It's the ability to relax, this can help to fall asleep more easily and calm the nerves.
