PurePaleo™ (Grass Fed Beef Protein Powder)
This top quality protein powder comes in two flavors: chocolate and natural vanilla. It is the ultimate protein supplement for those who are on a Paleo diet. PurePaleo™ Protein is a novel, great-tasting, dairy-free protein powder, yielding 21 g of protein per serving. It contains HydroBEEF™, a highly concentrated, pure beef protein, produced through an exclusive proprietary process that allows the protein to be hydrolyzed into more peptides, resulting in easier absorption and assimilation.
This product contains beef from animals raised in Sweden without hormones or antibiotics, and is free of any GMO grains, grasses, and/or ensilage. And, it is gluten-free. PurePaleo™ is an ideal protein for those who:
- want a true Paleo protein source
- want the power of beef to build muscle, cartilage & ligaments
- are dairy sensitive
- are gluten sensitive
PaleoMeal™ (Meal Supplement)
PaleoMeal™ is a powdered nutrition formula designed to promote peak wellness by optimizing patients’ intake of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and micronutrients. The ingredients make this formula ideal for patients needing support with weight control, GI health, detoxification, immune issues, heavy metals, and muscle gain. PaleoMeal™ is made with exceptional quality whey protein, which comes from herds that graze on pesticide-free, chemical-free natural grass pastures. These milking cows are never given bovine growth hormone or any other hormones (No rBST or rBGH), genetically modified organisms or injected pathogens. This whey protein is never exposed to high heat temperatures. The result is the highest quality protein supplement, rich in immunoglobulins and lactoferrin.

- Lipid Management
- Type II Diabetic Control
- Blood Sugar Balance
- Mercury Toxicity
- Weight Training
- Yeast Overgrowth
PaleoMeal™ is designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness. PaleoMeal™ is made with an exceptional quality whey protein concentrate, which comes from milking cow herds that graze on disease-free, pesticide-free, chemical-free, natural grass pastures. These milking cows are not subject to any chemical, genetic or hyper-immunization influence. They are never given bovine growth hormone or any other hormones. No rBGH or rBST. They have no history of bovine disease and have never been fed any cannibalistic by-products. This whey protein concentrate is produced to maintain the fragile components naturally present in whole fresh milk including the immunoglobulins, lactoferrin and bovine serum albumin. The result is the highest quality protein formulation available.
Whey protein is nature’s richest source of biologically active protein. Unlike soy protein, which is low in the amino acid methionine, whey protein contains all the amino acids the body needs in the best balance yet discovered in any food. Whey protein is derived from milk. Lactase enzyme was added to aid in the digestion of the small amount of lactose in this product. Those who are sensitive to milk products may be able to tolerate this whey protein, however, if you are allergic to milk and milk products, use PaleoMeal™ under the guidance of your health care practitioner.
PurePea Vanilla (Vegetarian Pea Protein Powder)
PurePea™, a natural pea protein isolate, offers a high level of functionality and nutritional benefits. It is ideal for those who are looking for vegetarian protein and may not want dairy derived protein. PurePea™ is a true vegan protein which has high bioavailability and excellent digestibility. It comes in chocolate, vanilla and unflavored.
The raw materials, North American grown yellow peas, are not genetically modified (non-GMO). PurePea™ is extracted from these dry peas via a patented protein technology which uses no chemical solvents. PurePea™ has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine). While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, it is particularly high in arginine, lysine, and phenylalanine. Its well-balanced profile fulfills the essential amino acid requirements outlined by the World Health Organization for adults. PurePea™ has excellent digestibility, a distinct advantage over other vegetable protein isolates, as it does not contain the commonly occurring anti-nutritional factors of other legumes (i.e., soy), mainly trypsin inhibitors, phytates, lectins, tannins, and α-galactocides. (The presence of high levels of these anti-nutritional factors can cause substantial reductions in protein digestibility.)
As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels. It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion. When compared to other vegetables, the yellow peas used in PurePea™ have low levels of phytosteroids (isoflavones), thus minimizing the possible estrogenic effects. PurePea™ is a great protein source for athletes and anyone who is physically active.
Cocommune™ Bars (GI-Friendly Snack Bar)
This popular functional food bar contains a blend of fibers and natural sweeteners that are less prone to affect those with GI sensitivities. Cocommune Bars™ contain the prebiotic fibers isomalto oligosaccharide and larch arabinogalactan, which naturally support the growth of beneficial bacteria and may positively affect:
- Immune system function
- Mineral absorption
- Bowel pH
- Composition of intestinal microbiota
Cocommune Bars™ are gluten-free and contain no sucrose, fructose or soy protein. They contain only natural sweeteners (inulin, maltitol, stevia and erythritol) that are easily tolerated and less prone to effect those with GI sensitivities. The generous amounts of coconut and coconut oil greatly contribute to the bar’s immune boosting properties and provide their moist, creamy and great tasting filling. With a blend of rich dark chocolate for their outer coating, the result is a taste that will even rival a Mounds® bar!
Chocolate Mint Fiber Bars
Chocolate Mint Fiber Bar is a delicious, high fiber bar containing a generous 14 g of dietary fiber per serving (one bar). It features Fibersol®-2, a digestion resistant, soluble dietary fiber that helps maintain intestinal regularity. This bar also contains inulin and isomalto-oligosaccharides, prebiotic fibers that benefit GI health through their ability to support gut microbiota. Chocolate Mint Fiber Bar does not contain any fructose or sucrose. It is sweetened with the health-promoting polyols erythritol and maltitol syrup, along with the natural herb stevia. The combination of fiber and polyols yields only 2 net carbs per bar, making it an ideal low glycemic, high fiber snack. There is also a dairy free version available which is higher in protein.
14-Day & 21-Day PaleoCleanse Plus Detox Kits
PaleoCleanse Plus™ is a comprehensive, science-based nutritional program designed to support safe and effective detoxification. This is accomplished by providing the nutrients needed to support and balance phase I and II metabolic pathways and to promote healthy liver function and elimination.

This pure 750 mg Betaine Hydrochloride tablet is designed for patients with compromised hydrochloric acid production. Ideally, Betaine HCl should be taken right before meals. Each tablet is coated with a vanillin pharmaceutical glaze because of Betaine HCl’s strong odor. It is Not recommended for patients with ulcers or a history of ulcers.
Digestzymes™ is comprised of a proprietary blend of digestive enzymes along with betaine HCL to support optimal digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. This product contains the special protease DPP IV (dipeptidyl peptidase IV), which aids in the breakdown of casomorphin (from casein) and gluteomorphin (from gluten). Digestzymes™ also include the enzyme lactase, which helps break down the dairy sugar lactose. The use of Digestzymes™ before meals may be helpful when patients experience gas and bloating after eating, constipation, or a feeling of fullness after eating only a small quantity of food. In order to assimilate vitamins and nutrients from our food and supplements, we must be able to digest them properly. Studies show that the foods in the typical American diet are devoid of natural enzymes and do little to help secrete our own production of enzymes. Thus, foods do not get digested well and nutrients from food are poorly absorbed. Poor digestive health can lead to various health disorders.
Many health experts agree that regular consumption of enzymes and enzyme-rich foods is a key to vibrant health, disease prevention, and anti-aging. Every cell in your body needs enzymes for its biochemical functions, thus a deficiency will accelerate the aging process. Digestzymes may benefit:
- Gas and bloating after meals
- Feeling of fullness after eating only a small quantity of food
OmegAvail Hi-Po Fish Oil
OmegAvail™ Hi-Po provides a potent 1400mg of EPA/DHA omega-3 oils per serving. Only Designs for Health fish oil products carry the TruTG™ seal, which are delivered in the form found in nature and are of superior TG potency. The TruTG™ seal guarantees a minimum 90% triglyceride-bound (TG) omega-3 fish oils, a level that is 40% – 50% higher than the industry standard for most TG fish oil concentrate products. As always, our fish oils are molecularly distilled and filtered to ensure purity and to maximize the removal of heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, PCBs, and other contaminants.
Probiotic Synergy 60 BIO-tract Probiospheres
With probiotic supplements, it’s all about the survival of three major barriers: during the manufacturing process, on the shelf and through stomach acid. Probiotic Synergy™ is formulated to survive these barriers with cutting edge technology that uses the most advanced patented delivery and shelf stability technology available to ensure maximum potency and viability. It is this Probiospheres tableting technology and shape that protects fragile probiotic organisms from harsh stomach acid and delivers the highest number of live organisms to the intestinal tract. The end result—higher potency, superior delivery, and minimal waste.
Probiotic Supreme DF
Probiotic Supreme DF™ is a higher dose, dairy-free alternative to our Probiotic Synergy™, delivering 15 billion organisms per dose in a caplet form – and uses the same advanced patented delivery system to ensure delivery of the highest number of live organisms to the intestinal tract. As the probiotics are meant to release over an extended time frame (10-12 hours), effective dosing need only take place twice per day. This also ensures delivery throughout the entire intestinal tract.
Vitamin D Synergy
Vitamin D Synergy provides a clinically useful dose of vitamin D3 and vitamin K in the form of K1. This formula can be replaced with Vitamin D Supreme when more aggressive therapeutic levels of vitamin D and K are required clinically. Vitamins D and K are essential for optimal bone and arterial health and for maintaining the immune system in proper balance. You should get tested at least once a year for your Vitamin D levels.
