Purity & Quality
HealthWise® Koji8 Red Yeast Rice Powder is tested as “negative” for the presence of citrinin. The limit of detection is 1ppm.
Warning: If taking prescription medication or pregnant/breastfeeding, please consult your healthcare professional for advice before supplementing with red rice powder. Monitoring is advised when taking red rice with cholesterol lowering medications (statins) as effects may be additive.
Note: Because red rice yeast extract delivers a natural mix of statin-like molecules rather than a single type of isolated molecule, it is much less likely to cause the side effects that sometimes occur with the pharmaceutical versions.
However consider taking a Co Q 10 supplement when using red yeast rice as Monacolins can produce statin like results, which may deplete Co Q 10 levels.
Free from gluten, dairy, artificial colouring and flavouring.

Yaeyama Pacifica CHLORELLA
Chlorella is one of the world’s most powerful cleansing and detoxifying food. Packed with vitamins and minerals this superfood is rich in chlorophyll and antioxidants and also acts as a healing and anti-inflammatory agent.
What is it
Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella is nutritionally superior.
Selected over 40 years ago and grown continuously with a patented 'outdoor growing system', the Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella strain is nutritionally superior, delivering higher levels of chlorophyll, Chlorella Grown Factor (CGF), protein, RNA, DNA and antioxidants, making it measurably the world's purest and most nutrient-rich Chlorella.
What is Chlorella?
Chlorella is an ancient single celled freshwater micro algae containing chlorophyll and many other useful phytonutrients. Thought to have had its genesis 2 billion years ago, chlorella is found naturally in freshwater rivers and waterways, but is now grown by aquaculture for human consumption.
Chlorella is unicellular which means each cell is self sufficient allowing it to perform all its functions inside itself. Each cell measures only 2.8 microns ( 1 micron = 1/1000th of a mm) about the size of a human red blood cell. Chlorella is so small that 1 litre of chlorella in a thin suspension contains over 20 billion cells.
Together with other photosynthetic micro-algae, Chlorella played an important role in converting the carbon dioxide rich atmoshere to oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. Micro-algae are largely responsible for converting the Earth's atmospheres 0.1% Oxygen, content to the 20% mix we have today, allowing all current organisms to thrive.
Chlorella is a powerful detoxifying food, so when starting always take a smaller amount for the first week, with an adequate intake of pure water. It is possible some new users may not tolerate chlorella - in the event that you experience stomach upset or nausea when taking chlorella, either reduce the amount you are taking or stop taking chlorella completely and seek advice from your health care practitioner. If pregnant, breastfeeding or taking medications, always consult your health care practitioner before starting on Chlorella.
There are some people who cannot tolerate chlorella and experience a strong allergic vomiting reaction after consuming it. This is extremely unusual and only affects a very small percentage of people. For this reason we always suggest starting off with a small serve and being cautious on day one and during the first week or so.
If you have this sort of strong reaction, stop taking the product, it's not for you. If the vomiting is intense and prolonged, seek medical help to avoid dehydration.
What are its health benefits
WHY USE CHLORELLA?
A NUTRITIONAL POWERHOUSE
The most common use of Chlorella is as a nutritional supplement. As well as being rich in carotenoids and chlorophyll, Chlorella contains vitamin A, all the B's, C and E, and unlike synthetic forms found in multi-vitamin supplements – in their natural form, and without having to worry about dosage. Vitamins are however just the start, Chlorella is packed with minerals including potassium, zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium contains around 55% complete balanced protein.
THE KING OF ALKALIZERS
It is now well accepted that it is beneficial to decrease our intake of acidic foods - such as meat, dairy and sugar, and increase our intake of alkalising foods such as leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds & ..........Chlorella.
How does it work
THE HOLISTIC WAY TO CLEANSE & DETOX
At the heart of Chlorella's health benefits is its ability to naturally cleanse and detoxify.
There are several different pathways to detoxification;
Firstly, the fibrous indigestible outer shell has been proven to bind with heavy metals and pesticides to facilitate removal from the body. This hard cell wall is not removed in Yaeyama Chlorella but 'opened' by Water-jet spray technology to enable assimilation of the nutrients within. This fibrous material supports healthy digestion though the promotion of peristalsis and the encouragement of good intestinal bacteria.
CHLOROPHYLL 'PLANT BLOOD'
Chlorella contains up to 5% chlorophyll, the largest amount in any plant. chlorophyll is a green pigment critical to photosynthesis allowing plants to create energy from sunlight. Chlorophyll is very similar to heme, the pigment in blood, only it has magnesium at its core not iron. This allows it to work at a molecular and cellular level binding to carcinogens in the organs and facilitating elimination.
CGF (Chlorella GROWTH FACTOR)
The actual composition of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is still a mystery, research demonstrates that components of chlorella promote extraordinary tissue growth and repair. Among the components of CGF are amino acids, polypeptide Yaeyama Chlorella | POWERED BY s and nucleic acids (RNA/DNA)

FLICK THE SWITCH AND ENHANCE KETOSIS
KETO SWITCH™ is an exogenous ketone formula containing over 10g goBHB™ (BetaHydroxybutyrate) per serve to help SWITCH ON Ketosis. In a state of ketosis, your body burns more fat, increases energy, enhances brain function, lowers inflammation, controls blood sugar, improves insulin sensitivity and assists in fighting food cravings.
KETO SWITCH™ combines a precise blend of ketogenic amino acids (1000mg of L-Leucine & 1000mg of Taurine), C-8 MCT oil (Medium Chain Triglycerides), 500mg of Acetyl L-Carnitine, goBHB™ Ketones plus critical co-factors to power your energy and performance.
KETO SWITCH™ is useful for people who are attempting a ketogenic, low carb or intermittent fasting nutritional protocol.
KETO SWITCH™ also helps support performance, reduce muscle damage and increase metabolic processes in non-ketogenic athletes.
Directions for use:
Ketosis: Consume one (1) serving of Keto Switch™ in 400 - 600 ml (13.5 - 20 oz) of water upon rising 30 – 60

KETO SWITCH . faq’s
HOW DOES KETO SWITCH HELP ME IMPROVE BRAIN FUNCTION?
Ketones are arguably the preferred source of energy for our brains and we use them very efficiently. There are multiple mechanisms involved in the mental improvements seen in ketogenic subjects, including a reduction in the mental decline of those suffering from Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Parkinson’s. Much of these benefits may be due to the improved blood sugar management seen with ketones.Other benefits may include improved brain mitochondrial function, reduced inflammation and increased BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor). BDNF is a naturally occurring hormone that protects and repairs your brain cells, increases the growth of new brain cells, and improves learning, memory and mood. In fact, many researchers consider it a natural antidepressant. Research suggests that if you struggle with mental illness, brain fog or poor brain function, you likely have reduced levels of BDNF. Ketones from KETO SWITCH™ may help to enhance the production of BDNF.For every 1.0 m/mol of ketones in the blood there is approximately a 10% improvement in brain function. It’s not unheard of for people get their ketones up to 4.0 or 5.0 m/mol which may see a 40-50% improvement in mental processing speed and creativity. You may want to consider using KETO SWITCH™ prior to those important meetings or mentally demanding tasks.
IS KETO SWITCH SAFE?
goBHB™ (Beta Hydroxybutyrate) which is the main ingredient in KETO SWITCH™ is very safe and 100% natural. We use goBHB™ because it has GRAS certification and is manufactured in a HACCP and GMP certified facility. goBHB™ is also Informed Choice™ approved. Look for the goBHB™ logo on your keto product to make sure you are getting the purist and highest quality product.
WHAT TYPE OF DIET WORKS BEST WITH KETO SWITCH?
To get most out of KETO SWITCH™ we recommend a lower carb (less than 100g/day) or ketogenic (less than 50g/day) diet. However, we understand that low carb or ketogenic diets are hard to maintain so we find using a 16:8 intermittent fasting approach works incredibly effectively. For more information please check out our blog on intermittent fasting @ www.switchnutrition.com.au.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I BE IN KETOSIS AFTER CONSUMING KETO SWITCH™?
Within 20–30 minutes you could be in full ketosis depending on your diet and when you consumed KETO SWITCH™. It may keep you in ketosis for 3-4 hours.
WHY HAVE YOU ADDED ACETYL L-CARNITINE TO KETO SWITCH™?
L-Carnitine is critically involved in the transportation of fats into the mitochondria to be used as fuel. Therefore, L-Carnitine should help to improve fat metabolism. L-Carnitine also helps to improve hormone responsiveness which may result in improved insulin sensitivity. In addition, Acetyl L-Carnitine passes through the blood brain barrier allowing for improved Acetyl Choline production. Acetyl Choline is a neurotransmitter involved in critical thinking, creativity, alertness, memory and hand eye co-ordination.SWITCH™. It may keep you in ketosis for 3-4 hours.
WHEN I USE KETO SWITCH™, I GET A SENSE OF EUPHORIA AND MOOD ELEVATION. IS THAT NORMAL?
Not everyone experiences this benefit but it is easily explained. KETO SWITCH™ improves GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) production and uptake. GABA enhances mood and reduces anxiety. This makes KETO SWITCH™ the perfect product for people under stress who can’t sleep or suffer from depression or anxiety.
IS KETO SWITCH NATURAL, GLUTEN, LACTOSE, SOY FREE AND VEGAN FRIENDLY?
Yes, we wanted to produce an industry-leading naturally sweetened exogenous ketone supplement that would be suitable for everyone. Plus... we haven’t harmed any animals in the production of KETO SWITCH™.
HOW MUCH OF EACH INGREDIENT IS IN KETO SWITCH™?
KETO SWITCH™ like ALL other SWITCH NUTRITION™ products is 100% Open Label. This means all active ingredients are clearly illustrated on the tub or sachet. No hidden fillers and no proprietary blends. Just 100% RESULTS.
CAN I USE ANYTHING ELSE WITH KETO SWITCH™ FOR BETTER RESULTS?
We recommend using AMINO SWITCH™ as an almost ZERO calorie protein alternative. If you are trying to stay in ketosis and burn fat both carbohydrates and proteins can bump you out of ketosis. AMINO SWITCH™ supplies the equivalent protein (amino acids) of 35g WPI but without the calories that can convert to glucose.We also recommend the use of ADRENAL SWITCH™ to help support recovery, reduce cortisol and improve your metabolic processes. Some people have difficulty getting to sleep on a lower carb diet or they feel fatigued. ADRENAL SWITCH™ will help reduce fatigue and improve your sleep quality.If your trying to burn fat we suggest stacking KETO SWITCH™ with THERMAL SWITCH™ first thing in the morning before fasted cardio to maximise fat burning, energy, performance, focus and mood.If you are lifting heavy or trying to build muscle and need an extra boost we suggest using Power Switch™ before your training sessions. POWER SWITCH™ will boost strength, improve muscle recruitment, increase energy, focus and alertness to power through every workout or game.
CAN KETO SWITCH™ INHIBIT FAT LOSS AS THE EXOGENOUS KETONES WILL BE PREFERRED OVER OUR OWN BODY FAT?
No, supplementing with KETO SWITCH™ will provide your body with source of calories, but let’s put it into perspective. There are 51 calories in a serve of KETO SWITCH™. This is less than half the calories of one serve of WPC. Where KETO SWITCH™ excels is downstream as it upregulates your fat burning machinery and mitochondrial function. This upregulation has provided people with a noticeable increase in energy (beyond the 51 calories provided) and a considerable reduction in appetite, which yields a greater calorie deficit and greater fat burning potential. One study using goBHB™ in rats fed adlibitum (on demand when they were hungry) showed a decrease in calorie intake and an increase in fat loss. While you might scoff at it being a rat study, it allows for the removal of placebo which means the rats weren’t intentionally cutting calories to create a positive outcome.
CAN KETO SWITCH™ CAUSE YOU TO STORE CARBOHYDRATES AS FAT?
No. In fact, BHB has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity which means you produce less insulin to absorb more carbohydrates into your muscles. More carbs in your muscles means less storing as fat. Even in non-ketogenic athletes consuming large amounts of carbohydrates, BHB was shown to improve metabolic health markers and fat metabolism. BHB would need to be used chronically at ridiculously high doses to interfere with endogenous fat or carbohydrate utilisation. Used correctly KETO SWITCH™ will enhance carbohydrate and fat metabolism.MY
DOCTOR SAYS KETOSIS IS DANGEROUS?
NOT true. He/she is clearly confused between the state of ketoacidosis (an unnatural state of acidity associated with diabetes) and ketosis (a natural state of converting fat into ketones to use as energy). Ketosis is safe. Ketoacidosis is not safe.
HOW DOES KETO SWITCH™ COMPARE TO PRUVIT KETO-OS?
KETO SWITCH™ is not an MLM (multi-level marketed) product. It is for BRICKS & MORTAR RETAIL and ONLINE RETAIL only. KETO SWITCH™ won’t be available on eBay® and you won’t be asked to risk your job, your business or your friendships by selling it to your family or mates. KETO SWITCH™ has a fully transparent open label providing OVER 10g (66% more) of active BHB v’s under 6g in Keto-OS.KETO SWITCH™ uses the highest quality University Researched and patented goBHB™ guaranteed for purity and potency. goBHB™ is HCAAP, GMP and INFORMED CHOICE Certified.
KETO SWITCH™ has added Acetyl L-Carnitine to assist with the fat burning benefits (if you have more mitochondria due to ketone use you are going to need more taxis (ALCAR) to transport the fat to them). Also, Acetyl L-Carnitine passes through the blood brain barrier further enhancing brain function.KETO SWITCH™ has added ketogenic amino acids for improved rates of ketosis, energy and muscle protein synthesis.KETO SWITCH™ uses a balanced salt blend of Calcium, Magnesium and Sodium providing 333% less sodium than Keto-OS.KETO SWITCH™ contains co-factors that are critical in the metabolic process of fatty acid metabolism and endogenous ketone production.KETO SWITCH™ is 50% cheaper than Keto-OS.
