Life Assure® from BCN Formulas™

Complete BioSystem Cell Support for Men & Women

Fulfilling the Health Promise of the True Mediterranean Diet!

Life Assure Optimizes the Body's β-Sitosterol-Antioxidant Matrix, and Delivers the Nutritional Foundation you have been missing in your Diet and Other Supplements!

Two Capsules of Life Assure Anti-Aging Formula provide 400 mg and 4 capsules provide a Heart Healthy 800 mg of Quality−Absorption Optimized−Phytosterols* Balanced for Optimum Health & Long-Term Use


Key Co-factors to Support Cardiovascular Health: 4 Capsules per Day May Reduce your Risk of Coronary Heart Disease**

And the ingredients in Life Assure Promote:

• Healthy Skin

• Cancer Risk Reduction

• Cell Integrity

• Healthy Blood Sugar & Healthy Joints

• Improved Utilization of Antioxidants

Life Assure® is a synergistic formula, supporting cellular integrity and the cell's biosystem

Healthy cell function is critical to health. Life Assure® is the first comprehensive formulation to directly support the cell's structure, function, and surrounding BioSystem, and to compliment any nutrition program and diet.

• Supports Normal Cell Membrane Fluidity, Cell Reproduction & Differentiation*

• Supports Healthy Intracellular Ca/Mg Ratios

Keeping Cells Healthy:

The Western food supply no longer properly provides the nutrition for cellular health. Life Assure fills this gap, restoring essential cellular nutrition, and in turn addresses a wide range of health areas, especially proper cell differentiation, reproduction and function, insulin19 and liver function, and the urogenital, immune, and cardiovascular systems.*

The β-Sitosterol-Antioxidant Matrix:

Phytosterols are an essential part of the Mediterranean Diet.18,20 However, they are never found alone, and are always accompanied by antioxidant (AOX) rich herbs and foods. An optimal balance can be formed by matching proven AOX function with optimally balanced βeta-Perfect® phytosterols. The Life Assure formula has been clinically observed for more than 10 years to provide just this optimal balance.*

Phytosterol Supplementation Requires Co-Antioxidants

Functionally Complimentary Antioxidants are Vital:

The lowest rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity and insulin resistance are found in areas where the diet is high in both beta-Sitosterol and in herb-based antioxidants. This is characteristic of a True Mediterranean Diet. Because β-Sitosterol acts both as an antioxidant and as a promoter of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative stress,1-5 it should always be used with properly complimentary antioxidants.* This natural, biologically optimal balance is key to Life Assure's® wide-ranging benefits.

Properly Balanced Phytosterols are Essential:

Phytosterols are needed for every part – every cell in the body. They even cross the blood-brain barrier. If a cell does not have adequate β-Sit available, it will uptake other sterols which disrupt the cell's cholesterol homeostasis, and in turn hormone production (especially adrenal hormones). Or it will uptake excessive cholesterol. An imbalance between β-Sit and cholesterol in the cell membrane disrupts the membrane's elasticity, increasing rigidity, which is associated with cancer cells, and insulin resistance.1,6-9,21* So choosing a properly balanced phytosterol supplement– Life Assure® – is very important.

β-Sitosterol/Antioxidant Matrix Synergism:

The β-Sit/AOX Matrix interaction is complex, requiring multi-supplement support. In some ways the relationship is as symbiotic as it is synergistic. For example: β-Sitosterol potentiates antioxidant activity and activates other antioxidant responses.10,11 β-Sit and plant-based antioxidants work together to protect cell membranes from lipid peroxidation.12,13,14 In addition, targeted antioxidants support activities of β-Sit: i.e. Astragalus root and β-Sit team up to increase the activities of antioxidant enzymes, including SOD and GSH-Px.14-16*

This natural pairing of β-Sit and select antioxidants, forming a supportive nutritional matrix, is fundamental to health!

Key Benefits Especially for Men:

The early dietary need for proper β-Sit/AOX nutrition shows up in most men as prostate issues. However, most of these men also have Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS), and hormone issues.

Life Assure® was formulated to address:

• Comprehensive Prostate Health*

• Complete Urinary Tract (LUTS) Support*

• Natural Hormone Balance*

• Anti-inflammatory*

• Provides Natural Lycopene in Tomato Oleoresin for superior antioxidant capacity and prostate health*

All the while providing a wide, whole-body range of general nutritional support!

Key Benefits Especially for Women:

• Naturally Reduces Breast Tenderness17*

• Nourishes & Revitalizes Endometrial and Related Tissue*

• Natural Hormone Balance & Support*

• Systemic Benefits for Everyone

While this formula is especially supportive of both men's and women's reproductive organs and the urinary system tissue and function, the supportive nutrition in Life Assure® functions throughout the body. The ingredients were selected because of their research-demonstrated, broad spectrum of function throughout the body (not based on a high ORAC value, which often does not correlate with function) in addition to complimenting β-Sitosterol.* The following are some examples of the whole-body support provided:

• Life Assure Supports Cardiovascular Health

• Supports Immune Function

• Supports Hormone Balance

• Supports Energy & Endurance, Ability to Handle Stress

• Provides Broad Spectrum Adaptogenic Benefits
