Suspension Gel – Just The Way Mother Nature Intended
Imagine you were able to perfectly blend up a handful of berries. what would you get? Not a pil . Not a juice either. You would get a gel. You have al the benefits of the nutrients in the juice part of the berries, plus all the benefits of the fibrous material, such as digestive stimulation, nutrient absorption and much more. Enter Agel. We don’t do pil s which can sit in the digestive system not breaking down and not delivering nutrients. We don’t do juices which don’t retain the fibrous base, key to nutrient delivery. We do gel. We maintain the fibrous base which enhances the body's ability to absorb nutrients, ensures a consistent delivery of hydrated nutrients every time, provides a soothing effect to the digestive system, and tastes great. Now, of course, not al nutrients come in gel form, at least not until now. But with Suspension Gel, you can get al the nutrients you’ll ever need in a delivery system that your body can use. Welcome to Agel. Welcome to health.
Do people actually consume the nutrients that will improve their health? Everyone starts with good intentions. A few pills here, a glass of juice there. But before long, pills get bothersome and glass bottles are less than portable.
How many times have we asked ourselves, “Now, why didn’t I think of that?” So often, a very simple idea goes unnoticed as we continue doing things the same old way, year after year. Nutritional supplements are no different. For most of the last century, nutritional supplements—primarily available in pill and tablet form—have gained popularity. With the availability of each new supplement, we have been left with the same alternative: swallow one more pill.
What if we didn’t have to choke down another tablet? What if there was another option? What if somebody decided to deliver nutrients in a different form?
Good news! There’s a fresh new way to consume nutritional supplements, a new technology known as Gelceuticals™. This delivery mechanism isn’t just new, it’s better—it will revolutionize the way we take nutritional supplements and substantial y increase the number of individuals who benefit from nutritional supplementation.
Through suspension gel technology, our daily nutrients can be taken anywhere, quickly and easily. Think about it: no glasses, no super-sized pills, no waterlogged juices, no ineffective sprays and creams—just
pure, concentrated nutrients in an easy to take, readily absorbed, taste bud-busting gel. Entirely original, the Gelceutical market represents an untapped arena of wellness. And the landmark realization of the industry is Agel™. Agel stands at the head of a supplement revolution—incredible convenience, incredible flavor.
Why is gel technology so much better? Two very important factors influence the efficacy of nutritional supplements: 1) the proper timing of ingestion, and 2) the availability of the nutrients. Because of these factors, gel technology represents a significant advance in the method of delivery for vitamins, minerals and other important food supplements. Gel suspension drastically facilitates ingestion of food supplements, increasing compliance with nutritional regimens that would otherwise go unheeded. It provides extreme convenience and al ows for optimal timing of ingestion, thus maximizing nutritional efficacy. And, it optimizes the availability of the nutrients that are suspended in gel form in order to maximize their physiologic effects.
At present, many exceptional nutritional products are available in solid pill and capsule form. Unfortunately, a significant portion of our population has difficulty ingesting pills and capsules. This segment, therefore, is unable to realize the benefits of these nutritional supplements. For some individuals—particularly in the elderly population—anatomical or neuromuscular difficulties prevent them from swallowing large pills or capsules. For others, the difficulty is merely a psychological phenomenon that deters the ingestion of large solid objects. Whatever the reason, these individuals miss out on the significant health benefits of nutritional supplementation.
In contrast to their pil and capsule counterparts, gel formulations are typically moist, smooth, flavorful and easy to swal ow. By suspending nutrients in a gel, individuals with swal owing difficulties have a higher likelihood of easily ingesting nutritional supplements. Moreover, those with psychological issues related to pills and capsules will likewise be more inclined to consume gel supplements.
Convenience and Timing
Nutritional supplements are most effective when ingested according to the optimal timing guidelines for each individual supplement. Some nutrients are better absorbed when taken with meals. Others are best when consumed at pre-determined intervals prior to food ingestion in order to maximize the effect of their active ingredients, or to avoid conflicting uptake mechanisms with other food particles. Gel supplements are packaged in convenient gel packs that are highly portable, allowing availability at the appropriate time—no matter when it is. In addition, the gel can often be ingested without water, therefore facilitating optimal timing, even in extreme and unusual circumstances. By encouraging and al owing the correct timing and ingestion of food supplements, gel technology enhances the absorption and utilization of each nutrient.
The availability of the nutrients in food supplements is of paramount importance. If nutrients are not available for uptake in the gastrointestinal tract, they are essentially useless. Some tablets and capsules have been well designed and tested to dissolve in the stomach and are extremely bioavailable. Not all pil s and capsules, however, are created equal. Poorly manufactured supplements in pil or capsule form are not consistently digested and absorbed. Some are compressed at extremely high pressures during manufacturing and are not well designed for optimal dissolution in the stomach. With the introduction of gel technology, all nutrients remain in their natural state, optimizing availability, and increasing the absorption and digestion of essential vitamins and minerals.
In a nutshell, Gelceuticals™ will change the way we take nutritional supplements. By increasing the ease-of-use, optimizing timing and enhancing absorption, gel technology widens the scope of supplementation™al owing a wider audience to benefit from dietary and nutritional improvements. The ingredients are ready, available and packed with al the sheer supplemental power and good taste you’ve been waiting for.
Some Facts About OHM (Energy & Focus) - $60/box of 30 Gelpacks
The fast-paced environment of everyday living is stressful and at times overwhelming. Lacking the nutrients to provide both sustained energy and that "burst of energy" often needed, modern diets frequently require supplements to fill the gap.
Agel OHM is a blend of vitamins, minerals, and herbs that complement a proper diet and regular exercise to support the body by providing the "extra energy" required to meet everyday demands. It does not rely upon chemical stimulants like caffeine or ephedra. Rather, it looks to a B-complex vitamin-based formula that acts as a coenzyme to facilitate the body's own metabolic processes required to convert carbohydrates into energy. Panax Ginseng is included, which is a strong adaptogen to help the body resist stressful influences. Panax Ginseng has also been associated with beneficial effects on motor performance, cognitive behavior and overall quality of Life. Likewise, OHM contains Rhodiola rosea to help improve physical endurance and mental performance, and to reduce stress-induced fatigue. Schizandra, grown in China and Korea, is another premium herb found in OHM. It was used historically, and stil used today to help improve concentration, strength, stamina, endurance, and alertness, without causing nervousness like caffeine related stimulants.
Although nothing can replace a healthy diet and regular physical activity, Agel OHM may be an excellent source of additional energy during a stressful day.
Some Facts About FIT (Appetite Suppression) - $60/box of 30 Gelpacks
Losing weight can be a huge struggle. But FIT can help you finally win the battle of the bulge. Being overweight increases your chances for health problems and decreases your ability to do things. Overcoming it isn’t easy, but using FIT as part of your weight control program can help.
Fits perfectly with your weight control program. To reduce your weight, you have to eat less and move more. But FIT can also help. If you take FIT gels before two meals, you may increase the effectiveness of your weight control program. That’s because it contains an active ingredient cal ed hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that comes from the fruit and rind of Garcinia cambogia. Prevent your body from storing unused carbohydrates Clinical studies have shown that HCA prevents your body from storing unused carbohydrates and inhibits fat production. In other words, it helps you win the battle between how many calories you consume and how many calories you burn. Whenever you win this battle, you lose weight. Eat less, move more, and lose weight Another benefit of HCA is that it is a mild appetite suppressant. If taken 30-60 minutes before a meal, it can help you eat less. If you eat less and move more, you can win the battle of the bulge. And few things benefit your health more than losing those extra pounds. Studies show that weight loss helps maintain healthy blood pressure, improves sleep, and can add years to a person’s life. What can FIT do for you? Here are just a few of the many potential benefits:
• Now with Hoodia • May help suppress the appetite* • May inhibit fat synthesis* • May increase the burning of fat* • Supports healthy reduction in your body weight* • Helps the body’s normal production of serotonin* • Can increase the effectiveness of a weight loss program over diet and exercise alone*
Some Facts About UMI (Immune System Booster) - $75/box of 30 Gelpacks
In many parts of the world, seaweed is not a regular part of the daily diet. In fact, there are many people who would not even consider eating seaweed. However, with Agel UMI, the exceptional health benefits of this oceanic treasure are now available to the masses. So, what is it about the brown seaweed that is so extraordinary? Through extensive research, scientists have identified a complex sulfated polysaccharide, cal ed fucoidan as the active ingredient. Its primary makeup consists of an essential sugar called fucose along with other elements such as xylose, mannose, and galactose, and glucose.
Studies consistently show that fucoidan possesses a wide range of properties beneficial to maintaining optimal health.
One of the primary ways in which Fucoidan provides a vast array of health benefits is its ability to interact with, and modulate the immune system. Several studies have identified many of the immune modulating effects of Fucoidan. The ability of a substance to modulate the immune system is an extremely useful property. Modulation is a term used to describe the process of reducing the extremes of cellular activity &mash; either stimulation or inhibition. Immune modulating substances have the ability to increase immune function when it is depressed, and also to reduce it when it is over-stimulated.
Most immune modulating agents work by improving inter-cellular communication. One way cells interact and communicate is by presenting glycoproteins on their surface. Glycoproteins are complex information-rich macromolecules composed of a protein core to which is bound arrays of linked chains of sugars (polysaccharides). The structures of the polysaccharides vary and therefore relay different codes for different messages. For example, one message might tell a cell to secrete a specific cellular product, and another message might tell a cel when to divide. Other cells have corresponding glycoprotein receptor molecules, which can then read these messages and respond accordingly. Thus, our bodies are involved in a very sophisticated and harmonious intercellular communication all the time.
The immune system depends heavily on this kind of communication to co-ordinate cellular defense, apoptosis, cell attack and repair processes. When any of the range of individual saccharides required to build competent glycoproteins (and thereby convey an accurate message) are missing, the quality of that communication is compromised. It has been shown that dietary supply of certain saccharides improves the integrity of glycoprotein production. Fucoidans provide an abundant supply of Fucose, one of the necessary saccharides, and smaller amounts of several other required sugars. This is likely to be one mechanism by which the fucoidans exert their immunomodulatory effect.
Now, with this understanding of glycoprotiens, and intercellular communication, let’s specifically identify the ways in which Fucoidan has been shown to be of significant benefit for health and wellness.

Regenerate Cells Much of the research that has been done on fucoidan has been focused on its ability to regenerate cells. Studies have shown that fucoidan helps support mobilization of stem cells that enable the body to replace dead cells thereby enabling tissue and organ regeneration. In addition, fucoidan helps slow
symptoms of the aging process. In study after study, fucoidan has shown itself to be beneficial in the fight for a long, healthy life.
Frenette PS, Weiss L. Blood, 2000 Oct 1 96(7):2460-8
Support the Circulatory System & Health Functions Fucoidan has also been shown to help maintain healthy blood flow and cardiac functions, thereby supporting the circulatory system. Increased blood flow helps all of our organs work more efficiently and helps us to feel better and healthier.8 Efficient functioning of our vital organs can help us reduce the effects of “wear and tear” of the normal aging process. Additional y, one study suggested that fucoidan helps to slow the absorption rate of glucose, or sugar, into the blood stream. A slower absorption rate help to maintain a more regulated blood sugar level and minimize the damage potential y caused by high blood sugar levels. References

Maintain Existing Normal Cholesterol Levels The process of cholesterol formation occurs in the liver. Our bodies produce a “good” cholesterol (HDL) and a “bad” cholesterol (LDL). Optimum health is achieved when we can maintain LDLs and HDLs already in the normal range. There is some evidence to suggest that fucoidan can help us to maintain existing healthy levels of cholesterol by influencing the metabolic activity in the liver where fatty acids are processed.

Assist in Inducing the Elimination of Harmful Cells Fucoidan may also prove helpful in eliminating harmful cells. This is accomplished through a process cal ed apoptosis. Apoptosis is technical term for the programmed process of a cell “bursting” and therefore dying. Sulphated polysaccharides like fucoidan have been shown to assist in inducing appropriate programmed apoptosis, which is a natural process where living organisms eliminate harmful cells and render the genetic blueprint (DNA) of harmful cells useless.

Help Maintain a Strong Immune System Fucoidan supports the immune system in a number of different ways. Some research suggests that it may cause an increase in the number of circulating mature white blood cells in the body, which are an integral part of the body’s natural immune system.17 The findings from other studies suggest that fucoidan supports the immune system by improving phagocytosis and activating other important immune responses.

Promotes Optimal Gastrointestinal Health The number of people concerned with maintaining gastrointestinal health is rapidly increasing around the world as more and more people are consuming foods with more fat content and less dietary fiber. Once in the gastrointestinal tract, fucoidan attaches to the lining where it has a protective effect. In addition, it stimulates the gut lining to “self-repair” tissue. Fucoidan, because of its immune promoting activity, is a tremendous aid in maintaining proper gastrointestinal function and health. References

Some Facts About MIN (Multi-Vitamin) - $60/box of 30 Gelpacks
Vitamins and Minerals are essential tools in everyday human physiology. They function as coenzymes and cofactors that are involved in almost all biochemical processes in the body. In essence, vitamins and minerals are crucial to healthy living.
Before the days of “fast food” and “empty” calories, these vitamins and minerals were found naturally in our food. However, in modern days, as the average diet consists mostly of processed, manufactured food, where the levels of these critical nutrients are relatively lower, there is overwhelming scientific evidence to support the intake of dietary supplements that are rich in vitamins and minerals [1-5].
Agel MIN is a proprietary formulation of vitamins and minerals that provides 100% of the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) of almost al the essential vitamins and as much as 50% of the RDI of most of the essential minerals. More importantly, the availability of these vitamins and minerals is enhanced
due to the revolutionary gel technology employed in the MIN formulation. The vitamins and minerals are dissolved and suspended in the gel, resulting in immediate availability for absorption by the digestive tract.
There are some who advocate using mega doses of various vitamins, presuming that if some is good, more is better. However, there is growing scientific evidence that too much of a good thing can be harmful [6-7]. Therefore, Agel’s formulation for a moderate dose of readily available vitamins and minerals is ideal.
Some Facts About EXO (Antioxidants) - $60/box of Gelpacks
EXO is the proprietary exotic antioxidant formula in our initial product offerings. Antioxidants are substances that help prevent cellular damage in our bodies. Our body has its own process of repair, but with the stress of current life-styles and the increasing amount of pollutants in the environment, we may need some extra help. Ideal y, we can get most of the antioxidants we need by eating fruits and vegetables, essentials of a healthy diet. However, in today’s fast-paced world we sometimes replace fresh fruits and vegetables with less than ideal choices. Therefore, enhancing our less than optimal diet with an exceptional antioxidant supplement may be extremely beneficial.
EXO is a powerful blend of 17 different unique whole fruit purees and plant extracts from around the world, each with its own unique properties. This distinctive formula contains 17 potent botanicals that each when tested individual y was found to have a very high total antioxidant capacity. Now imagine, the extraordinary benefit of EXO, a highly concentrated gel, made up of not one but 17 of these antioxidant-rich fruits and plants. In independent testing, EXO’s antioxidant capacity as determined by an oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) rating was found to be quite extraordinary.
Optimum health requires adequate nutrition. Adequate nutrition involves balance, moderation and variety. Scientific literature suggests that the intake of a varied selection of antioxidants is much better than taking high doses of just one or two antioxidants. Since EXO is a highly concentrated gel containing a variety of antioxidant-rich botanicals, the multifaceted benefits of this formulation are truly unique.
Ingredients: There are varying formulations of EXO, each of them containing a slightly different subset of the 17 antioxidant-rich exotic fruits that are used in the US and Canada formulation. This is done in order to accommodate the different markets and the specific requirements as set forth by the regulating agencies in each country. As a result, we will list the fruits that are in each of the three formulations, and then we will give a description of all 17 fruits and plant extracts.

Some Facts About FLX (Joint Pain) - $75/box of 30 Gelpacks
Agel™ FLX was formulated to take advantage of 4 fantastic ingredients that have all been found to be very beneficial in the maintenance of healthy joints and maximum flexibility. This formulation is a first, not only because it contains all 4 ingredients, but also because it is delivered in a gel suspension, a remarkable innovation by itself.
Minor or temporary joint pain associated with the normal activities of our active lifestyle is increasing around the world. Many are those who suffer needlessly or put themselves in harms way by taking medications that treat the symptoms rather than the problem.
So, what are the answers to this complex problem?
There has been significant research done to identify means of addressing this condition,. As this research has progressed, there have been some rather remarkable discoveries. Researchers have identified some of the key building blocks in our joints and cartilage and have found natural y occurring sources of them in our environment. By studying the effects of incorporating these components into our diets, scientists have found some wonderful results with regard to joint health. They have concluded that by oral y ingesting some of these compounds that are important factors in the regeneration and maintenance of healthy joints joint health and function improve. To understand this concept better, consider bones. Bones are rebuilt or strengthened by adding calcium to the boney matrix. As we al know, we need to ingest calcium in our diets in order to build strong bones. Similarly, cartilage is regenerated or stengthened by providing its’ building blocks in our diet.
So, what are these compounds that have been found to be so helpful in maintaining healthy joints? There are four that we will address here: Chondroitin, Glucosamine, MSM (MethylSulfonylMethane), and Celadrin (a proprietary combination of cetylated fatty acids). These four ingredients have all been found in clinical trials, individual y, to improve joint function and health. They have become a mainstay and a very important al y to those who suffer from temporary or minor joint pain associated with normal activities. What’s more, they are fast becoming a mainstay for all adults who want to maintain healthy joints and active lifestyles.
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a product available that had al 4 of these ingredients in one formulation? What kind of synergy would be present if al 4 of these natural joint health wonders were able to perform together in a single blend?

With revolutionary ingredients like Turmeric and Acerola Cherry, GLO is all natural and provides protection from harsh chemicals, long term effects from the sun, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots and also evens out skin complexion. What are free radicals, how do they work? Free-radical damage occurs on an atomic level. Molecules are made of atoms, and a single atom is made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Electrons are always found in pairs. However, when oxygen molecules are involved in a chemical reaction, they can lose one of their electrons. This oxygen molecule that now only has one electron is called a free radical. With only one electron the oxygen molecule must quickly find another electron, and it does this by taking the electron from another molecule. When that molecule in turn loses one of its electrons, it too must seek out another, in a continuing reaction. Molecules attempting to repair themselves in this way trigger a cascading event called “free-radical damage.” What causes a molecule to let go of one of its electrons, generating free-radical damage? The answer is oxygen or any compound that contains an oxygen molecule, such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen peroxide, and superoxide) plus sunlight, and pollution. Antioxidants prevent unstable oxygen molecules (made unstable by loss of one electron) from interacting with other molecules (taking one of their electrons) and consequently causing them to
become unstable, a process that starts the free-radical chain reaction. Fortunately, a vast assortment of antioxidants can be found in both the human body and in the plant world. So what does that have to do with wrinkles? No one is exactly sure, but theoretically wrinkles appear when the free-radical damage originates from natural environmental factors and fails to be cancelled out by some amount of antioxidant protection. If we don’t get enough antioxidant protection, either from our own body’s production, from dietary sources, or from antioxidants, including those we put on our skin, free-radical damage continues unrestrained, causing cells to break down and impairing or destroying their ability to function normally. Antioxidants (anti- meaning against) reduce these harmful effects by repairing the damage done to these molecules and decreasing their destructive power.

Full size Skincare Kit/$189 – Individual products are also sold separately. Give EXO a hand: the genesis of Ageless. How did EXO go from nutrition you take to nutrition you put on? It started when—on a whim and maybe a hunch—an international Agel distributor put EXO on one of her hands. The soft, supple skin on the EXO-treated hand startled her—and she wasn’t alone. Women from around the world had begun putting EXO on their skin. And they’d discovered—almost simultaneously—that the incredible nutrition found inside EXO dramatical y improved their skin’s health and appearance. A recipe for success. Seven products to improve the one-and-only you. There are seven products in the system. These seven products were created to work together. Each of designed as a step toward to the next with properties in each product designed to work with the properties of the other products in the line. When you are cooking and you leave out an important ingredient, does it affect the outcome? It’s the same with skin care. When you skip a step or simply decide that you don’t need do complete a part of the routine, you sabotage your success and the system won’t work as wel for you as it might if you would just take the time. Ageless products are natural.
• Petroleum free • Free of harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate and propylene glycol • Free of mineral oil or lanolin • Paraben free • Not used or tested on animals
Why is this important? Petroleum is used in more products than you can imagine. It is a barrier to moisture, but used because of it’s ability to make the skin feel smooth and soft for a time. It wil not, however, penetrate the skin and al ow a moisturizer to work.
Sodium lauryl sulfate is a cheap detergent commonly used in cosmetic cleansers, hair shampoos, bath and shower gels, bubble baths, etc. — It is probably the most dangerous ingredient used in skin and hair-care products. In the cleaning industry SLS is used in garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers, car-wash soaps, etc. It is very corrosive and readily attacks greasy surfaces.Propylene glycol is used to make antifreeze and de-icing solutions for cars, airplanes, and boats. It is also used in hydraulic brake fluids and inks used in stamp pads, bal point pens, and print shops.
Mineral oil and lanolin both block the skin from receiving and developing moisture.
Parabens have been connected to cancer in recent years.
What are free radicals, how do they work? Free-radical damage occurs on an atomic level. Molecules are made of atoms, and a single atom is made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Electrons are always found in pairs. However, when oxygen molecules are involved in a chemical reaction, they can lose one of their electrons. This oxygen molecule that now only has one electron is cal ed a free radical. With only one electron the oxygen molecule must quickly find another electron, and it does this by taking the electron from another molecule. When that molecule in turn loses one of its electrons, it too must seek out another, in a continuing reaction. Molecules attempting to repair themselves in this way trigger a cascading event called “free-radical damage.”
What causes a molecule to let go of one of its electrons, generating free-radical damage? The answer is oxygen or any compound that contains an oxygen molecule, such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen peroxide, and superoxide) plus sunlight, and pol ution.
Antioxidants prevent unstable oxygen molecules (made unstable by loss of one electron) from interacting with other molecules (taking one of their electrons) and consequently causing them to
become unstable, a process that starts the free-radical chain reaction. Fortunately, a vast assortment of antioxidants can be found in both the human body and in the plant world.
So what does that have to do with wrinkles? No one is exactly sure, but theoretically wrinkles appear when the free-radical damage originates from natural environmental factors and fails to be cancelled out by some amount of antioxidant protection. If we don’t get enough antioxidant protection, either from our own body’s production, from dietary sources, or from antioxidants, including those we put on our skin, free-radical damage continues unrestrained, causing cells to break down and impairing or destroying their ability to function normally.
Antioxidants (anti- meaning against) reduce these harmful effects by repairing the damage done to these molecules and decreasing their destructive power.
