Our Formulation Philosophy
Our Formulation Philosophy
Have you ever wondered if the supplements you
purchase actually work? With so many brands making so
many promises, it’s hard to know whom to trust.
At Quality of Life, we don’t ask you to take our
supplements on faith. Faith is irrelevant when you
have research.
As a company committed to developing evidencebased products, Quality of Life is the only company in
the nutritional supplement industry that can make this
guarantee:
Every single ingredient in every one of our products
is backed by human studies, and delivered in dosages
consistent with clinical research.
No exceptions. No compromises.
Why Human Studies?
Currently, nine out of ten experimental drugs fail
in clinical studies because we cannot accurately
predict how they will behave in people based on
laboratory and animal studies.”
-Mike Leavitt, U.S. Secretary of Health
and Human Services
While test tube and animal studies may help identify
promising ingredients worthy of further study, human
clinical studies are widely considered the gold standard
of scientific research. Why? It’s simply not possibly
to make foolproof predictions about how any given
substance will function in the human body from test tube
or animal studies alone.
Humans differ from animals in anatomy, physiology, and
metabolism. Consider these examples:
• Chocolate is delicious to you, but poisonous to dogs.
• Tylenol® is great for relieving your headache, but it’s
toxic to cats.
• Penicillin will help clear up your ear infection, but it will
kill a guinea pig.
When you choose Quality of Life, you can trust your
supplements to work, because 100 percent of the
ingredients in every product we manufacture are backed
by human clinical studies.
Why Do Dosages Matter?
Everyone knows blueberries are a healthy food. Multiple
human clinical studies, using about 1 cup per day (about
200 berries), have proven this fact. But what if, in the
hopes of getting healthier, you decided to eat a single
blueberry a day?
Common sense says that eating just one berry daily is
unlikely to “keep the doctor away.” This observation
is consistent with an accepted principle of both
conventional and integrative medicine: Dosages matter.
Many natural compounds have been shown to be
effective at specific threshold doses, yet have little or no
impact at lower ones. Just because eating a daily cup of
blueberries is beneficial does not mean that eating one
berry a day will have any effect.
Unfortunately, it is common practice in the nutritional
supplement industry to use dosages of ingredients that
are lower than those supported by clinical research.
When you choose Quality of Life, you can trust your
supplements to work, because 100 percent of the
ingredients in every product we manufacture are
provided in dosages that match the clinical research.

IMMUNE SUPPORT*
Kinoko® 750
AHCC
The World’s Most Researched Specialty Immune Supplement
Many people turn to alternative and complementary therapies when dealing with
immune challenges. Unfortunately, while plenty of nutritional supplements claim to
have immune-boosting properties, very few compounds have undergone rigorous
scientific research.
Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC®), an extract obtained from a
hybridization of several subspecies of medicinal mushrooms, is different. The subject
of studies at respected medical institutions — including Yale Medical School, MD
Anderson, UC Davis and the Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital —
AHCC is the world’s most-researched specialty immune supplement.
Kinoko 750 delivers a high dose of 750 mg of Active Hexose Correlated Compound
(AHCC) per capsule, providing extra support in immune health management.*

BONE HEALTH*
Triple-Action
Bonecal™
Build Your Bones with Triple-Action Bonecal.*
Just because you take a calcium supplement doesn’t mean it will end up in your
bones. Calcium absorption is a complex physiological process that requires other
nutrients to help the calcium reach its destination and to be utilized once it arrives.
Triple-Action Bonecal features DimaCal® dicalcium malate (a highly bioavailable form
of calcium) plus carefully selected ingredients that help with calcium absorption and
deposition, so you can get the full benefits of this important mineral.*

About MBP
Even if your body absorbs calcium, it still
needs a way to attach it to your bones.
That’s where MBP comes in. A component
of whey, MBP helps creates collagen, a
protein that allows calcium to “stick” to
the framework of existing bone and holds
it there.* In addition, MBP keeps excess
calcium and collagen from dissolving out
of the bones.* The result is enhanced bone
mineralization and stronger bones.*

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT*
Carboquel™
Curb Those Carbs.* Shed Those Pounds.*
Carbs take you on a roller coaster ride. They cause your blood sugar to spike and
fall again just as quickly, leaving you tired and craving more carbs. That’s not good,
because if you consume more carbs than you need, the excess is stored as fat.
Carboquel helps you break out of this cycle. When combined with a healthy diet
and regular exercise, Carboquel helps you take control of carbs in two ways: right
now, by blocking the absorption of carbs, and in the future, by helping prevent
future carb cravings.*

carbs from being broken down and
absorbed by your body.*
In a recent human study, 11 subjects ate
a snack of bread and margarine. Those
who took 1,500 mg of Phase 2 — the
same dose contained in Carboquel —
beforehand absorbed 66% less
carbohydrate (as glucose) than those
who didn’t.*

CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH*
Multi-Action
CardioChol®
Get Heart Smart.*
Protecting your heart is the single most important thing you can do for your health. In
addition to eating right and exercising, supplementation with nutrients and botanicals
is a smart way to give yourself “heart insurance.”
The problem is, most supplements focus on just one aspect of heart health, such as
blood pressure or cholesterol. But for ultimate heart protection, you need a product
that addresses the full range of factors affecting cardiovascular well-being. MultiAction CardioChol works in 4 ways to support your heart and vascular system.*

CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH*
Cardionase™
Support Healthy Blood Clotting.*
If it weren’t for blood clots, simple cuts would be life threatening. However, excess
blood clotting can cause your blood to become too thick, or viscous — making
it difficult for oxygen and nutrients to get to your organs. In fact, the viscosity
of your blood is directly related to your blood pressure, circulation, and overall
cardiovascular health.
Discovered in 1980 by the Japanese researcher Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, nattokinase is an
enzyme that has excellent fibrinolytic (or clot-dissolving) activity. Now there’s a new,
improved form of the enzyme developed by Dr. Sumi himself: strain “N” nattokinase,
featured in Cardionase™.

absorption than regular nattokinase.

COGNITIVE SUPPORT*
CognI•Q™
Stay Sharp.*
If you’ve ever forgotten an appointment or misplaced your car keys, you’re familiar
with occasional forgetfulness. Unfortunately, the older you get, the more forgetful
you may become. That’s because starting in your twenties, you begin to lose brain
cells, a few at a time. As your body ages, it also make less of the chemicals your
brain needs to work.
Derived from a unique, specially cultivated subspecies of Angelica, the lead

CoQ10-SR®
The CoQ10 You’re 100% Guaranteed to Absorb
It’s a well-known fact that across the board, human beings have difficulty absorbing
regular (or crystalline) CoQ10. That’s why more bioavailable (or absorbable) forms of
this nutrient have been developed.
However, bioavailability varies drastically from person to person. Research shows
some people are good absorbers of products with “improved bioavailability” CoQ10.
Yet others are poor absorbers, and barely absorb any “improved bioavailability”
CoQ10 at all. CoQ10-SR with patented MicroActive® CoQ10 is the only form of CoQ10

About CoQ10-SR
Through a breakthrough, patented
technology, CoQ10-SR with MicroActive CoQ10 solves the problem of CoQ10
malabsorption. Each molecule of fatsoluble CoQ10 is bonded with a molecule
of water-soluble cyclodextrin (a natural
derivative of starch).

MicroActive®Q10 is protected under US patent # 7,030,102.
Because water-soluble molecules have
an easier time moving through the
digestive system than fat-soluble ones, the
cyclodextrin improves CoQ10’s transport
to the small intestines. There, it is released
and absorbed.

Curcumin-SR™
Curcumin with Staying Power
Curcumin, the active constituent of turmeric, is one of the most promising ingredients
for promoting a healthy inflammation response.* While short-term inflammation is
a normal part of immune response, long-term inflammation may increase oxidative
stress and contribute to the aging process.
Unfortunately, curcumin is notoriously difficult for the body to absorb and retain. It’s
fat-soluble, so it doesn’t move easily through the watery environment of the digestive
system. To make matters worse, what little curcumin is absorbed is quickly excreted.
Curcumin-SR features MicroActive® Curcumin complex, which delivers curcumin in a
special micronized, sustained-release matrix to increase absorption and bioavailability.

About Curcumin-SR™

•Is absorbed faster
Elevates blood levels more quickly than
regular resveratrol
•More bioavailable than regular curcumin
A special matrix keeps the curcumin from
being rapidly excreted
MicroActive technology micronizes
and encapsulates the active ingredient
in a tailor-made matrix to increase its
bioavailability. For fat-soluble ingredients,
a custom matrix is developed to
allow for quicker transit through the
digestive system, so you don’t have to
wait hours to absorb them. For watersoluble ingredients, a custom matrix is
developed to allow for slower transit, so
they can continue to be absorbed hours
after they’ve been ingested. The result is
a sustained-release product that works
now — and later!

Deodorex®
Eliminate Embarrassing Body Odors With Deodorex.*
Body odor, bad breath and flatulence can all make you feel uncomfortable and
embarrassed in social settings. Offensive smells are more than just embarrassing,
though. They’re a sign that your digestive system is converting a portion of the food
you eat into toxic chemicals that may be harmful to your health.
Deodorex contains a patented, proprietary extract from the edible champignon
mushroom called Champex®. Deodorex works from the inside out to effectively
reduce body odors where they originate, by decreasing levels of these toxic
chemicals in the intestines and blood.*

How Deodorex Works
Serving Size: 2 vegicaps
•Decreases body odors.* A human study
found Champex decreased body odors —
including ammonia, indole, phenol, skatole,
and sulfides — by 40-60 percent.*
•Fights bad breath.* In a study of female
college students, nearly two-thirds of
subjects reported that Champex was
effective in eliminating garlic breath.*
•Purifies the blood.* Yet another study found
that Champex reduced average levels of
ammonia in the blood by 52 percent.*
Deodorex decreases levels of toxic, odorcausing chemicals in the intestines and
blood.* How?
•The amino acids in Deodorex neutralize
unpleasant odors caused by ammonia and
amines*
•The polyphenols in Deodorex bond to
mercaptans and amines to form odorless
chemicals*
•The polysaccharides in Deodorex
control foul odors in a variety of chemical
structures*
•Deodorex also increases levels of
beneficial bacteria in the gut, which inhibits
the production of odor-causing chemicals*

Krill Oil™
The Better Way to Get Your Omega-3s.*
Omega-3 fatty acids are “good-for-you” fats that are as critical to your health as
vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, many people are turned off by the fishy taste
and smell of fish oil supplements.
If you’re interested in a better alternative, consider the advantages of Neptune Krill
Oil over fish oil:
• Significantly better bioavailability (91% for krill oil versus 65% for fish oil),
• Clinically demonstrated greater efficacy,
• Stronger antioxidant activity,
• No unpleasant fishy taste or odor and
• Excellent purity, testing below the strictest detection limits for PCBs.

Krill Oil™
Get Relief From PMS.*
If you’re like most women, you wouldn’t trade being female for the world. But
you’d probably trade the emotional and physical chaos that PMS brings into your life
in a heartbeat.
While there are many natural supplements that claim to provide relief from the mood
swings, breast tenderness and bloating of PMS, very few are supported by evidence
from human clinical trials. One exception is Neptune Krill Oil. Derived from
Antarctic krill — tiny ice-dwelling crustaceans — Neptune Krill Oil provides a unique
combination of omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and antioxidants that work
together to support hormonal balance and relieve the physical and emotional
discomforts of PMS.*

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT*
Lipoquel™
Fight the Fat on Two Fronts!*
Fatty foods can be hard to resist, and it’s not hard to understand why. Scientists have
discovered they activate the same pleasure centers in the brain as heroin and cocaine!
And while your body needs some fat to function, if you consume more than you need,
the excess is stored as body fat. With Lipoquel, you can eat fats in moderation —
without sabotaging your weight loss efforts. When combined with a healthy diet and
regular exercise, Lipoquel helps you burn the fat you already have, promoting weight
loss, and blocks the absorption of dietary fats, helping prevent weight gain.*

Oligonol®
Age Better With Oligonol.*
Wrinkled skin. Low energy. Stiff arteries. Most people are familiar with these
common signs of aging. What they don’t realize is that one physiological link
underlies all these conditions: poor circulation, or blood flow.
Blood carries life-giving oxygen and nutrients to every cell of the body. Blood flow
to the heart is important for cardiovascular health. Blood flow to the skin is important
for elasticity. And blood flow to the muscles is important for preventing fatigue.
Derived from the Asian superfruit lychee, Oligonol is a breakthrough anti-aging

Resveratrol with Staying Power
Resveratrol is a phytonutrient and antioxidant that occurs naturally in grapes and

metabolism, normal insulin sensitivity, and optimal blood flow — all of which may
have cardiovascular, brain, and anti-aging benefits.*
However, resveratrol has a short half-life. That means it doesn’t stay in the
bloodstream very long, so its benefits may be limited. Resveratrol-SR features

About Serotonin
•Boosts levels of serotonin with 5-HTP,
which may mildly suppress appetite, reduce
carbohydrate cravings and enhance mood.*
•Lowers levels of cortisol with Relora®,
which may alleviate stress and stressrelated eating.*
•Helps the body adapt to internal and
external stress, with Rhodiola rosea.*
•Supports relaxation through increased
production of alpha brain waves, with
L-theanine.*
•Promotes a positive outlook, with vitamin D.*
Serotonin is a brain chemical that regulates
mood, sleep and appetite. The body normally contains anywhere between 10–12mg
of serotonin. There is significant evidence
to suggest that people who suffer from
even a slight imbalance in bodily levels
of serotonin may experience negative
mood states, poor quality sleep, increased
appetite and cravings for carbohydrates.

1. It’s a powerful antioxidant, helping protect your cells from the damaging effects
of free radicals.*
2.It helps detoxify heavy metals, which are widely present in the modern
environment.*
3.It can improve your immune response when you need it most.*
But are you getting all you can from your current vitamin C supplement? Advasorb

About Fast-C™
•Antioxidant Protection: Vitamin C and
NAC are both antioxidants that neutralize
harmful free radicals.*
•Detoxification Support: Both vitamin C
and NAC help the body detoxify a range
of pollutants — including heavy metals,
automobile exhaust, tobacco smoke,
industrial chemicals, and pesticides.*
•Immune Boost: Daily intake of vitamin
C during the cold-weather season can
promote immune response when you
need it most, while NAC helps maintain
well-being throughout the winter.*
Fast C is a unique buffered form of
vitamin C that utilizes Alkemy™, a blend
of alkalizing minerals, plus BioPerine®,
a natural bioavailability enhancer made
from black pepper.
Fast C has been shown in two doubleblind clinical studies to be faster
absorbed than the leading premium
Vitamin C, yet be equally retained by
the body. It delivers 54% more vitamin
C into the tissues in the first two hours
compared to the leading premium brand.

HEALTHY AGING*
VitaPQQ®
Slow the Aging Process With VitaPQQ
If you think aging is inevitable, think again. New research reveals we can slow
down — and possibly even reverse — the aging process.
Recently, scientists have uncovered a significant contributing factor to aging: the
degradation of mitochondria, our bodies: natural power plants. When enough
mitochondria become damaged, or their quantities diminish, they are not able to
produce sufficient energy to keep all the organs going.
In 2003, Japanese researchers rocked the scientific world with their discovery of
the first new vitamin since 1948: pyrroloquinoline quinone (or PQQ for short). One of
PQQ’s key actions is to preserve the quantity and function of the mitochondria.*

Enhanced
VitaPQQ®
Improve Your Memory and Focuus.*
Why is it that as we age, we have more difficulty remembering simple things? The
answer to that question has eluded scientists for years. But now, exciting new
scientific evidence suggests that one of the main causes of mild memory problems
associated with aging is damage to the mitochondria — the energy-generating “power
plants” of the cells.
Enhanced VitaPQQ features PQQ — one of the only substances shown to increase
both the quantity and function of mitochondria in animal models — plus BioQ10SA (a highly bioavailable form of CoQ10 developed to work with PQQ). This exact
combination has been shown to improve short-term memory and focus in humans.*

About PQQ
•Supports mitochondrial health*
PQQ preserves the quantity and function
of the mitochondria, which provide fuel for
all cells — including brain cells.*
•Protects nerve cells.*
CoQ10 is a coenzyme that protects
nerve cells from damage through its
antioxidant effects.*
•Improves short-term memory and focus*
A double-blind human study found the
combination of PQQ + CoQ10 improves
short-term memory and focus better than
either ingredient alone.*
In 2003, Japanese researchers rocked
the scientific world with their discovery
of the first new vitamin since 1948:
pyrroloquinoline quinine (or PQQ for
short). PQQ is not synthesized by
mammals, which means it must be
supplied through food or supplements.
