When to Take Each Packet: Other amino acids compete with some White Label Ingredients for absorption, so in order to effectively optimize its use, some individuals may benefit from taking each supplement pack separately from other protein-rich foods. Because of the stimulating effect of Red Label, it may impact sleep if taken too late in the day. If this is the case, adjust the timing to meet your needs.
Interactions with Drugs: Due to competition for absorption in the small intestine, the supplement MaxElevate in White Label may decrease the effectiveness of L-dopa (Levodopa). If you take L-dopa, wait at least 2 hours before taking MaxElevate. MaxElevate supplementation may also increase the effect of drugs that affect dopamine metabolism (consult with your health care practitioner). For safety sake, take each packet 1-2 hours from any prescription medication.
Who Should Not Take Platinum White Label? Platinum White Label should not be taken by those with diagnosed with heart conditions including high blood pressure, schizophrenia, manic conditions, anxiety, insomnia, or cancer (including skin cancer), without consulting their health care practitioner.

Multi Without Iron
Balanced Profile Vitamins and minerals work synergistically and cooperatively when present in proper amounts. However, imbalances between micronutrients can disrupt this synergistic relationship, possibly leading to instances of competitive intestinal absorption or displacement at the metabolic/cellular level, which can produce relative excesses and insufficiencies. For this reason, Multi Without Iron formulas feature a balanced nutrient profile that includes calcium and magnesium, zinc and copper, vitamins C and E, bioactive folate, vitamin B12, B vitamin complex, beta-carotene, and trace elements.*
Bioavailability- The micronutrients are provided in bioavailable forms so that they can be better absorbed and utilized. Multi Without Iron formulas contain a full complement of Albion® patented mineral chelates and complexes. Albion is a recognized world leader in mineral amino acid chelate nutrition and manufactures highly bioavailable nutritional mineral forms that are validated by third party research and clinical studies. Not only do these formulas contain natural vitamin E, which has been proven to be up to 100% more bioavailable than synthetic dl-alpha-tocopherol, but it is also provides mixed tocopherols to more closely approximate how one might consume vitamin E in healthful foods.[9,10] Folate is provided as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)—the most bioactive form of folate. Multi Without Iron formulas feature 5-MTHF as Quatrefolic®, which is proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability over calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF. Vitamin B12 is provided as MecobalActive™. This patented form of methylcobalamin has very high purity; no harmful solvents are used in its production. Vitamins B2 and B6 are also provided in activated forms.*
Energy Production Multi Without Iron formulas provide generous levels of B vitamins, which serve as prime coenzymes in glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation and as cofactors in amino acid and lipid metabolism. The balanced presence of B vitamins is essential to their cooperative functioning and excellent for those with stressful lifestyles.* Antioxidant Protection Vitamins E and C, selenium, zinc, beta carotene, and trace elements provide broad-spectrum antioxidant activity. Their combined presence supports their ability to regenerate each other and maintain consistent levels of antioxidant activity both intra- and extracellularly.* Detoxification Support Xenobiotics, including environmental pollutants and medications, must undergo biotransformation into molecules that can be easily excreted from the body. There are significant levels of bioavailable riboflavin, niacin, folate, and B12 present in these formulas to support phase I detoxification. Beta carotene, vitamin C, tocopherols, selenium, copper, zinc, and manganese are present to protect tissues from reactive intermediates formed between phase I and phase II detoxification.*
This high-quality, hypoallergenic, multivitamin/mineral blend includes activated vitamins; folate as Quatrefolic® (5-MTHF) for optimal utilization; and patented Albion® TRAACS® chelated mineral complexes in vegetarian capsules. The comprehensive nutrient profile in Multi Without Iron® supports foundational wellness; antioxidant activity with vitamins C and E, selenium, and beta-carotene; and phase I detoxification.*
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a source of the conditionally essential amino acid L-cysteine and a precursor to the tripeptide glutathione. NAC and glutathione support antioxidant and detoxification activity in the body.*
NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) NAC, a sulfur-containing derivative of the amino acid L-cysteine, supports antioxidant and detoxification mechanisms in the body. NAC supports antioxidant activity by neutralizing hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid, and the highly reactive hydroxyl radical and also serves as a source of sulfhydryl groups. In addition, NAC enhances production of the tripeptide glutathione—a key component of both antioxidant and detoxification enzymes.* NAC is recognized for its support of normal mucous production and may positively support respiratory function and eye health, especially when consumed over a prolonged period.[1-3] Research suggests that NAC may protect cell and tissue health by supporting normal metal status in the body.*[1,4,5]
Glutathione – While the absorption of oral glutathione may be limited, supplementation with NAC may significantly increase circulating levels of glutathione in the body.[7,8] Once NAC promotes production of glutathione, glutathione is incorporated into crucial antioxidant enzymes (e.g., glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase) and detoxification enzymes (glutathione S-transferases). Through the activity of these enzymes, glutathione directly supports antioxidant activity, phase II detoxification, and the normal breakdown of metabolites, toxins, and other compounds in the body. Glutathione also participates in fatty acid synthesis and amino acid transport across the cell membrane.* A variety of factors may determine glutathione requirements, including level of exposure to toxins, increased phase I detoxification activity, and overall need for antioxidant support. Maintaining glutathione levels may be important to maintaining the health of the respiratory, hepatic, and immune systems, as well as supporting antioxidant protection of lipids and proteins and supporting the normal response to inflammation.[7-13] Levels of endogenous antioxidants, including glutathione, may decrease with age. It is important to maintain adequate levels of glutathione in the body to support overall health and well-being throughout the lifespan.*
Vitamin D3 5000
While vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is made in the skin when 7-dehydrocholesterol reacts with sunlight, many things affect the degree to which this biosynthesis occurs, including time of day, seasons, location, smog/pollution, clothing, shade of skin (darker skin requires more sun), and sunscreen use. Low-cholesterol diets and certain cholesterol therapies can also affect vitamin D formation. By some estimates, one billion people worldwide have vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency.
Reversing deficiency and maintaining optimal serum vitamin D levels beneficially impacts biochemistry and numerous body systems; this is largely because calcitriol—the metabolic product of vitamin D—is a secosteroid hormone that targets over 200 genes in a wide variety of tissues.[2,3] As the research demonstrates, vitamin D is clearly imperative for the development, growth, and maintenance of a healthy body from gestation to senescence.* Bone Health The body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium, and the importance of vitamin D in skeletal health and bone density is well established. Although bone density is most often associated with calcium intakes, insufficient vitamin D negatively affects calcium absorption. Without adequate absorption, the body must take calcium from its stores in the skeleton, which weakens existing bone and prevents the formation of strong, new bone.
Clinical research shows that taking vitamin D orally with calcium supplements can support healthy bone turnover[4-6], and adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life—as part of a well-balanced diet—may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.* The Expanding Roles of Vitamin D The role of vitamin D in good health continues to expand as the knowledge of this vitamin’s effects on different body systems grows. Research now suggests that optimal serum levels of vitamin D support normal cell differentiation,[3,7] cardiovascular health,[2,3] normal immune function, good balance, healthy mood, normal fetal development, neuronal growth and neurodevelopment,[2,3,10,11] healthy glucose metabolism,[2,3] musculoskeletal comfort,[2,3] periodontal health, and normal intestinal immune responses.
Areas of research that have gained momentum over the past several years concern the relationship of vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency to changes in cellular proliferation, changes in fetal brain development, and mental health. [7,10,13-15] Evidence is also mounting that vitamin D supplementation may provide key immune support.*[16-19] D2, D3, and Metabolites As previously stated, D3 is the form of vitamin D produced in the skin. D2 (ergocalciferol) is derived from fungal sources by activating ergosterol with ultraviolet light. It is not naturally present in the human body. After vitamin D is formed in the skin or taken orally, it is metabolized into two different substances within the body: calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D) and calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D). Calcidiol is the body’s main storage form of vitamin D, while calcitriol (made from calcidoil) is “activated” vitamin D. Although D2 and D3 are similar biochemically, a recent study reported D3 to be approximately 87% more potent in raising and maintaining serum calcidiol concentrations and in producing two- to threefold greater storage of vitamin D than did equimolar D2.*[20
Each Tyrosine NAC capsule contains 400 mg of L-tyrosine, a conditionally essential amino acid the body can convert to the neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. These neurotransmitters are found to increase mental alertness and focus and also preserve normal memory under stressful conditions. N-acetyl-Lcysteine is present to support glutathione production, antioxidant activity, and neuronal protection.*
Tyrosine, or 4-hydroxyphenylalanine, a proteogenic, non-essential amino acid that can be synthesized in the body from phenylalanine, is converted into dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Although present in foods such as dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, sesame, seaweed, avocados, bananas, poultry, lima beans, and others, tyrosine, when consumed in food, must compete for absorption with the other amino acids present. Taken as a supplement, tyrosine does not have to compete with other amino acids and, therefore, its full benefits can be realized.*
Stress conditions, such as a cold environment, psychological stress, sleep deprivation, and strenuous, prolonged athletic activity, appear to reduce the body’s ability to convert phenylalanine to tyrosine. This underproduction may manifest itself as poor memory and performance. Tyrosine, as a precursor for catecholamine synthesis, presumably augments brain catecholamine levels and improves working memory under stress. Tyrosine also supports adrenal and pituitary function, and may increase thyroid hormone. Additionally, it is necessary for production of the skin pigment, melanin. Oral contraceptives may cause a decline in tyrosine plasma levels, possibly because estrogen can increase glucocorticoid levels. This, in turn, elevates levels of tyrosine aminotransferase, which degrades tyrosine in the liver.*
Although increased dopamine may be beneficial in some circumstances, excessive synthesis of this neurotransmitter generates hydoxy radicals that stress glutathione levels. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), a derivative of the amino acid, L-cysteine, is the precursor to glutathione and helps augment the body’s reserve of this important antioxidant. It has been included in this formula primarily to protect the neurons against dopamine toxicity. However, NAC also lessens the load on the methylation cycle, thereby decreasing the load on the THB cycle and promoting the conversion of tyrosine to dopamine.* Only a percentage of the tyrosine consumed will make it into the brain for conversion to catecholamines. The rest will be picked up for structural protein usage, etc. The only component that needs to be balanced with a glutathione precursor is the portion of tyrosine that is converted into catecholamines. For this reason, less NAC than tyrosine is present.*
Adrenal Booster™ pairs glandulars with targeted nutrients to support the body’s response to everyday stressors. Among the comprehensive blend of nutrients are high-potency pantothenic acid and vitamin C, activated B vitamins, and mineral amino acid chelates. Gland and organ tissues are derived from an Argentinian bovine source that ensures safety and purity.*
Stress is caused by physiological, psychological, or emotional triggers (stressors) that cause a disturbance in the homeostasis of an organism. How we respond to those stressors (physiologically and psychologically) influences how well we cope with change and with ongoing stress. Structural or physical trauma, distress, poor diet, infection, toxic exposure, leaky gut, births, deaths, lack of sleep, temperature changes, electromagnetic radiation, and allergies or food sensitivities are all potential stressors. Combined, they amount to a total stress level and can ultimately disrupt homeostasis with direct effects on the autonomic nervous system, the hypothalamic-pituitaryadrenal (HPA) axis, and the cardiovascular, metabolic, and immune systems.
Specifically, research reveals that prolonged stress has a profound effect on the adrenal glands, lymph nodes, thymus gland, and gastrointestinal system. Endocrinologist Hans Selye identified the various stages of the stress response (alarm, resistance, and exhaustion) and described the entire phenomenon as the general adaptation syndrome (GAS). Micronutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, are involved in the majority of metabolic functions in the body. B vitamins are especially important to energy generation within the cellular mitochondria, and a deficiency of any B vitamin can compromise mitochondrial function.[3,4] Riboflavin supports the respiratory chain, niacin supplies protons for oxidative phosphorylation, and pantothenic acid is required for coenzyme A production, metabolic enzyme complex formation, and fatty acid oxidation. Stressors can increase metabolic demand, energy expenditure, and micronutrient needs.
Micronutrient sufficiency and balance have been established as crucial to helping maintain a healthy psychological and physiological response to stress. Unfortunately, experts estimate that a significant proportion of the general population does not consume adequate dietary levels of several micronutrients. Experts suggest that exogenous supplementation can improve micronutrient status and sufficiency and help support a healthy response to stress.* Clinical research supports the premise that micronutrient supplementation can favorably support the stress response in a variety of circumstances.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled (RDBPC) trial, high-potency doses of B vitamins and vitamin C along with an array of minerals were studied for their effects on perceived stress scores (measuring one’s self perception of stress) in 215 males aged 30 to 55 years. Results revealed significant improvements on the perceived stress scale (PSS), the profile of mood states (POMS), and the general health questionnaire (GHQ-12) for those taking the multivitamin/mineral supplement. Another RDBPC study of 80 males revealed consistent and statistically significant modulation in anxiety and perceived stress in the men who took a high-potency multivitamin/mineral supplement compared to those who took the placebo. Participants taking the supplement also reported feeling less tired and better able to concentrate compared to their placebotaking counterparts. Similar results were achieved in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, double-center study of 300 subjects taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement, with significant improvement in baseline stress scores. The levels of vitamin C, riboflavin, B6, pantothenic acid, and zinc provided in the recommended dose of two Adrenal Booster capsules twice daily meets or exceeds the levels used in these clinical studies. The recommended daily dose of four capsules also provides 30 mg of niacin (compared to 50 mg used in studies) and 90 mg of magnesium (compared to 100 mg used in studies).*
Adrenal Booster also contains a blend of complementary nutrients and purified glandulars. Rhodiola rosea, chlorella, grape seed extract, magnesium, zinc, chromium, bioflavonoids, and L-tyrosine are present at levels that allow for additional supplementation to round out their profile. Activated B vitamins and Albion® TRAACS® (the real amino acid chelate system) mineral amino acid chelates, along with other chelated minerals, are key features of the formula. Adrenal, parotid, thymus, and spleen glandulars are extracted from an Argentinian bovine source that ensures safety and purity.*
Niacin 750 is one of the most studied and documented nutrients for support of lipid levels already within the normal range, especially high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. Sustained release niacin, as found in Niacin 750, has a lesser flushing effect compared with instant-release niacin. Use of a proprietary, wax-coated technology permits release that is complete in seven to eight hours, the time that is considered ideal for a time release form of niacin.*
The cardiovascular benefits of niacin (vitamin B3) were introduced in the June 1956 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings.  More than 20 years later, the Framingham Heart Study touted the benefits of niacin on lipid metabolism. A decade later, as the study continued, researchers labeled niacin “front-line” cardiovascular support. This status was further reinforced in 1988 when the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) panel designated niacin a “first-line therapy” for support of specific parameters related to cardiovascular health.* Mechanisms of Action Several mechanisms of action have been proposed for niacin. Various experimental models suggest niacin can modulate lipoprotein biosynthesis in the liver, inhibit the release of free fatty acids from adipocytes, inhibit synthesis of apo B, induce lipoprotein lipase, and help maintain the structure and function of HDL (high-density lipoprotein) by reducing the amount of apo A-1 broken down from HDL during hepatic processing.[4,5]
In addition, when niacin is used with resins, it can stimulate bile flow and may therefore affect lipid biosynthesis.* Human Trials Since the late 1970s, studies and clinical trials, lasting from four weeks to five years with daily doses of extended-release (also known as sustained/prolonged/slow-release) niacin up to 3000 mg/day, have consistently demonstrated niacin’s efficacy and safety.  In 2004, the ARBITER 6-HALTS trial clearly demonstrated that niacin offers targeted support of cardiovascular health. Final results of this trial, published in 2010, further demonstrated that niacin supports healthy carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT). While the supportive effect niacin has on blood lipids is well documented, there has been a recent focus by NCEP and other researchers on how niacin’s effect on HDL may influence cardiovascular events. More well-designed studies that address innate limitations and are carried to completion are needed.*
Why Isn’t Niacin More Widely Used? The two common concerns are cutaneous flushing and increased liver enzymes. Cutaneous flushing is harmless, although it can be a nuisance. Flushing is most often seen with the use of immediate/instant-release forms of niacin and can occur with doses as low as 30 mg/day, but it is more likely to occur with the much higher doses used to support healthy blood lipids. Flushing may last 10 to 15 minutes and rarely, but possibly, up to two hours. The proprietary wax-coated technology used in Niacin 750 tablets allows a gradual, sustained release of niacin over a seven-to-eight hour period. This delivery dramatically reduces the flushing associated with immediate-release forms. Adherence to a regimen with the special wax-coated form of niacin, as found in Niacin 750, ranged from 88-97% in four human clinical trials.[10,11] Flushing, itching, tingling, and upper gastrointestinal side effects were minimal, but did increase when dosing was increased to 2000 mg/day.
It is important to note that Niacin 750 should not be confused with “no-flush” niacin, which is inositol hexanicotinate (IHN), a supplement that does not contain any free niacin and may not be as supportive of cardiovascular health as those providing nicotinic acid.*[12,13] The second concern with regard to liver enzyme elevation was first elucidated by the results of McKenney’s study, published in 1994 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), wherein subjects received 3000 mg/day of niacin over an extended period of time. In April 2004, McKenney retracted his earlier warnings about the harmful effects of niacin and publicly supported its unique benefits. Although they generally do not enter an unhealthy range, liver enzymes may increase when initiating niacin therapy, especially in amounts greater than 1000 mg/day. Enzyme levels return to normal promptly after cessation of niacin.*
Mood Support ES
Mood Support ES™ combines the same vitamins, minerals, and amino acids as first generation Mood Food™. Modification in quantities of ingredients, plus the addition of Suntheanine®, vitamin C, and selenium, further enhance synthesis of chemical messengers that support calmness, a healthy mood, and a healthy nervous system.*
Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients are necessary for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, healthy nerve transmission, healthy brain chemistry, and normal muscle contraction/relaxation. Components of Mood Support ES address each of these areas.*
Methylation is the addition of a methyl group (a carbon atom with three hydrogen atoms attached) to proteins, enzymes, chemicals, DNA, or amino acids like homocysteine. It is a vital aspect of nervous system health and is necessary for the synthesis of neurotransmitters. Mood Support ES provides key nutrients involved in the methylation pathway, such as selenomethionine; vitamin B6 as pyridoxal 5’-phosphate; vitamin B12 as the readily bioavailable form, methylcobalamin; and folate as bioactive Quatrefolic® (5-MTHF glucosamine salt) and calcium folinate.
Pyridoxine nutritional status selectively modulates central production of serotonin and GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid)—neurotransmitters that are involved in physical pain perception and mental wellness.* Magnesium is provided as Albion® TRAACS® glycinate chelate, a specific form demonstrated to support intraneuronal magnesium sufficiency. As a cofactor for over 325 enzymes in the body, magnesium has a multitude of actions, including a calming effect on the nervous system and regulation of muscle contraction. Laboratory, animal, and epidemiological research suggests a link between magnesium sufficiency and a healthy mood and calm demeanor.*[4,5]
Vitamin C participates in the enzyme activity of two copper dependent monooxygenases that are important in the synthesis of norepinephrine and serotonin. In addition, vitamin C regulates the activity of some neurons within the brain that affect neurotransmitter membrane receptor synthesis and neurotransmitter dynamics.*
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an important inhibitory neurotransmitter found in 30% to 40% of the brain synapses. It helps calm the brain by neutralizing the excitatory effects of glutamate. Research suggests that GABA supplementation or optimal GABA function in the brain positively affects neurological health, the body’s response to stress, mood, alpha and beta brain waves, and sleep.*[7-9]
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a precursor to serotonin. It is well-absorbed in the intestine and easily crosses the blood-brain barrier. Serotonin regulates many normal brain activities; influences other neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine and dopamine; and is important in regulating mood and behavior, including food cravings. Research suggests that adequate levels of 5-HTP instill a sense of calmness and relaxation.*
L-Taurine is a conditionally essential, neuroprotective amino acid that helps maintain cell volume and stabilize cell membranes in the brain. In addition to its roles in antioxidant activity and inflammatory cytokine modulation, taurine is important in the transmission of nerve impulses and overall nerve function. Oral supplementation increases GABA.*
L-Theanine (Suntheanine®) is a naturally occurring, biologically active, free-form amino acid that provides relaxation support. Mechanisms of action appear to relate to its effects on neurotransmitters, excitatory amino acids activity, and alpha brain wave activity.[13-15] Many practitioners utilize L-theanine to support overall relaxation without inducing drowsiness.*
MCHC plus Mag
Numerous published studies support the safety, tolerability, and bone health-related effectiveness of MCHC supplementation.[1,2] Studies suggest that the bioavailability of calcium from MCHC supplements may be as good as or better than the bioavailability of calcium from calcium gluconate supplements.[3,4]
PRx Products utilize standardized, safe, bovine-sourced MCHC from New Zealand, a country with stringent standards. Its production features a proprietary technique that preserves the bioactive contents of bone. This process creates a naturally balanced formula because whole bone extract provides all of the nutrients found in healthy bone.* Unlike other calcium supplements on the market, MCHC plus Mag consists of collagenous and non-collagenous proteins and peptides. These compounds include insulin-like growth factors I and II (IGF-I, IGF-II), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta), and osteocalcin, factors that stimulate alkaline phosphatase activity and support metabolism in human bone cells. Removal of the protein fraction appears to reduce the positive effects of the formula, highlighting the importance of its presence.* A study suggested that the occurrence of positive and statistically significant changes in forearm bone integrity were the result of daily supplementation with 3000 mg of microcrystalline hydroxyapatite.
Earlier studies compared MCHC plus Mag to other forms of calcium with regard to the support of normal bone turnover and bone mineral integrity. In one 20-month, double-blind study, women were given 1400 mg of elemental calcium (equivalent to approximately 5000 mg MCHC) as either calcium carbonate or MCHC plus Mag. At the end of the study, the presence of bone integrity was statistically significant in the MCHC plus Mag group.* Clinical trials suggested that MCHC plus Mag supplementation was well tolerated and yielded a positive outcome for dental status, bone integrity, and healthy bone metabolism.[9,10] A randomized, controlled study indicated that the addition of MCHC plus Mag to exogenously administered hormones provided statistically significant support (4.7%, P<0.1) to vertebral bone mass. Another study of 60 subjects suggested that bone mass was maintained while on MCHC plus Mag.* MCHC plus Mag is high-quality MCHC from New Zealand.
The World Organization for Animal Health (the OIE) has classified New Zealand as a “negligible BSE risk country,” the most favorable official classification a country can be given. MCHC plus Mag is manufactured under proprietary processes that meet FDA, USDA, and EU regulatory requirements. Gentle processing is used to retain the delicate protein matrix and organic factors. X-ray-diffraction analysis confirms the microcrystalline structure. The MCHC is assayed for hydroxyproline content. The collagen content is greater than 22% with the majority being type l, the predominant collagen occurring in bone. Frequent heavy metal assays assure purity. MCHC plus Mag 1100™ delivers 1100 mg of MCHC plus Mag per capsule. MCHC plus Mag MD™ delivers 500 mg of MCHC plus Mag per capsule along with vitamin D, magnesium, and additional calcium. Vitamin D is provided as cholecalciferol, which stimulates intestinal calcium absorption and helps support calcium and phosphorus homeostasis in the body. Calcium is provided as MCHC and DimaCal® dicalcium malate, and magnesium is provided as Albion dimagnesium malate and TRAACS® magnesium bisglycinate chelate. The buffering malate forms of calcium and magnesium do not react with stomach acid and are less likely than carbonates to cause discomfort and acid rebound.*

Platinum – White Label FAQ (Cocaine/Stimulants/Meth)
Why do I need White Label as part of my recovery?
Pro Recovery Rx White label has been specially designed for those who have struggled with addiction to cocaine, stimulants such as adderall and meth. Our formulation helps to support energy and focus and to assist in restoring adrenal health.
What’s in Platinum – White Label?
The primary ingredient is l-Tyrosine, mood support and adrenal support. . Our white label has L-Tyrosine in it which stimulates the catecholamines (dopamine/norepinephrine/epinephrine) your reward pathway. It gives you some energy and helps to give fatigue relief. Also because your neurotransmitters are being balanced and your nutrient cofactors are in place (through the rest of the supplements in the packets) you should experience improved mood. We have also placed emphasis on restoring your adrenals. Research suggests that the use of stimulants, cocaine and methamphetamines negatively impacts your adrenal function. This can cause you to feel extra fatigue, lack of motivation or drive. It is important to partner White label with a stress reduction and nutrition plan to help restore your adrenal function.
What are some symptoms that might be helped by using White Label?
Though the list is not entirely comprehensive some of the more common symptoms that could be helpful by using White label are:
- Lethargic depression
- Can’t concentrate
- 2pm slump
- Use stimulants to gain energy
What should I expect from White label?
From White Label you should expect to begin to have a more stable mood and more ambition. With use of White label as well as a healthier diet and stress relief, you should begin to notice subtle changes on how your mind and body begins to repair energy and have more drive.
What shouldn’t I expect from White label?
White Label is not magical. You will need to make some lifestyle changes along with White label such as avoidance of sugars and carbohydrates and a solid stress reduction plan. White label will not miraculously fix your relationships and mindset that work is up to you.
How will I know if it’s working?
Many people who struggle with addiction are looking for a quick fix or a short term solution to addiction. White Label will take some consistency on your part. Daily use of White Label will begin to rebuild your neurotransmitter pathways (particularly Catecholamines and Serotonin) and within a few weeks of consistent use you will feel more mood stable and less fatigue. The changes are subtle, they are not the ‘buzz’ or ‘high’ that you may be accustomed to. White Label will actually give your body and brain what it is needing, not another cover up or reliance on stimulants such as sugar, caffeine, energy drinks and the like.
Will this help or hurt my sleep?
Because each packet is designed to balance neurotransmitters, your sleep should improve. However, if you find that you cannot fall asleep as you once did just take the afternoon dose earlier in the day. The addiction formulations do not have a specific sleep formulation in them as not all people need or want that. If you want a sleep formulation please contact our support department.
Who should not take White Label?
Though amino acids are typically safe, there are some instances that you should not take them and consult with your medical professional.
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart Conditions
- Migraine Headaches
- Bipolar tendencies
- Overactive thyroid
Consult with your physician before using any amino acids if you have any of the following:
- If you tend to react negatively to supplements
- You have a serious physical illness, particularly cancer
- You have severe liver or kidney problems
- You have an ulcer
- You are pregnant or nursing
- You have schizophrenia or other serious mental illness
- You have phenylketonuria
- You are taking any medications for mood problems, particularly MAO inhibitors or more than one SSRI/SNRI
Are there any negative side effects of White Label?
Typically there is not. However, if you feel overly anxious, jittery or just plain unusual, discontinue using immediately and seek medical attention. Also if you have trouble sleeping after taking the afternoon packet, just adjust the time of day you take it to an earlier time.
