NTFactor® FAQ

Find Answers to Your Health Questions

What is NTFactor® ?
NTFactor® is a nutrient compound composed of phosphoglycolipids (the highest functioning fats in human body), with pre- and pro-biotics. These phosphoglycolipids are the building blocks of cell membranes, and the pre and pro-biotics work to balance friendly bacteria in your large intestine.

How does it work?
NTFactor® works by repairing cellular membrane function, and balancing a healthy micro flora. We all have something in our bodies called Phosphoglycolipids that are the building blocks and fabric for healthy cells. Over time those lipids become damaged, and what NTFactor® does, is replace those damaged lipids, with healthy undamaged lipids. It also provides the nutrition for restoring healthy bacteria in our gastro-intestinal environment.

Why is NTFactor® important to my health?
NTFactor® rebuilds and repairs the membranes in your cells, the building blocks of health. In the membranes of your cells and mitochondria is where food, air and water become energy you can use (ATP), where hormones, enzymes and many proteins and fats are synthesized for use in your body. In clinical trials NTFactor® returned the health of cells in a 70 year old population to level normal for healthy young adults (control group had average of 29 yrs) in 8 weeks. No other product we know about can make that claim. We have spent years testing and perfecting this science; 5 clinical trials, more than 2-dozen review papers and 38 million doses consumed to date.

Is NTFactor® safe?
NTFactor® is made 100% from food extracts. It does not use foods that contain naturally occurring stimulants or hormones. To date approximately 38 million doses of NTFactor® have been consumed. In less than 1% of those doses, there have been complaints of an increase in flatulence and/or loose bowels, which is normal due to the pre and pro-biotics in the product. Most of these complaints resolved themselves naturally within the first few weeks of taking the product.


Is NTFactor® gluten free?
Yes, NTFactor® is gluten and wheat free.

Will NTFactor® interfere with any medications?
Generally not, unless the drug instructional insert indicates otherwise. This is required by federal law to be provided in every prescription.

Has NTFactor® been tested?
NTFactor® has been tested extensively over the last 18 years. It has been studied in 5 peer-reviewed published clinical trials, including double blinded placebo controlled randomized crossover trial design. All trials were supervised by a registered, or university affiliated, IRB (Institutional Review Board). NTFactor® reviews have been published in more than 12 medical journals.

Should NTFactor® be taken with food?
NTFactor® products may be taken with or without food. Since NTFactor® products contains a wide range of foods and probiotics, all the needed coenzymes and cofactors are either present or created as a metabolite.

Can I take too much of NTFactor®
No, the reason is NTFactor® provides two types of nutrition; cell membrane nutrition and gastro-intestinal flora nutrition. As NTFactor® increases the saturation of cell membrane it continues to improve the health and function of the membranes. If there is too much at any one time it won’t make it into the membrane matrix, and so, will be shuttled off to provide nutrition such as neurotransmitter aids and short chain fatty acid nutrients. In the gastro intestinal tract the bacteria will simply mature in the large intestine and go through its metabolic life.

Is NTFactor® a vitamin?
NTFactor® contains small amounts of some vitamins but it should not be considered a vitamin supplement. The small amount it provides is consumed by the friendly bacteria present in the group. NTFactor® is a cell rebuilder. We do provide daily vitamins that include NTFactor® in many products such as  “PROPAX with NTFACTOR®” and “PROPAX GOLD with NTFactor®”. Check them out on our website. One packet a day can give you everything you need to rebuild your cells and feed them with the nutrients they need

How many packs of Propax should I take a day?
All the clinical trials evaluated fatigue and tiredness in some fashion or another. For mild fatigue 1 packet daily was instructed, for moderate 2 packets, and for severe fatigue 3 packets daily. Note that severely fatigued people were generally reclassified as moderate, or mild, within four week, and the dose changed accordingly.

Is NTFactor® an antioxidant?
All nutrients except iron are anti-oxidants. NTFactor® is a group of nutrients completely extracted from food and does not contain any naturally occurring stimulants or hormones. NTFactor® does contain some antioxidants however that is not its method of action to improve the health and vitality of people. It works by providing cell membranes with the building block to restore its own vitality and repairs damage done previously by free radicals. (This is not something that anti-oxidants alone can accomplish.) Then it provides the nutrients (pro-and pre-biotics) to restore healthy microflora (healthy bacteria) colonies in the gastro intestinal tract. NTFactor® is unique and novel because it can provide the cell membrane nutrients that are documented to match human membrane, and are not oxidized/digested when consumed.

How does NTFactor® work in combination with other supplements such as vitamins, minerals, herbs and foods?
NTFactor® will make other nutrients more effective because NTFactor® is proven to improve membrane potential. That refers to the electrical activity of a membrane and that drives metabolism.

How will it help my fatigue and tiredness?
In five clinical trials it has been proven that NTFactor® will reduce and eliminate fatigue regardless of the person’s age or severity of fatigue. Because it requires no external energy to work it will work regardless of the person’s age or health.

What separates NTFactor® from other products that claim to fight fatigue?
NTFactor® is the only product proven in clinical trials to reduce and eliminate fatigue. No other product had been proven to provide the same benefit. Some products create the illusion by discussing aspects of the energy producing process, or the oxidation and/or transport of pre-energy compounds, like sugar and/or fats. However, NTFactor® is the only supplement to actually be evaluated successfully for fatigue.

How long will it take for me to see and feel benefits from taking it?
Surveys indicate people feel benefit beginning within three days. Clinical trials show dramatic results continuing throughout two months.

What are the age groups can benefit from NTFactor® technology?
Cellular damage has been thought to begin occurring after puberty, so it would be valuable for that age group and older.

What does it mean that it can cut your biological age in half?
The most credible theory of how aging happens is called the ‘Mitochondrial Clock Theory of Aging”. This interprets that the damage done in our bodies to the mitochondria in our cells determines how well, and how long, we can live. In a recent clinical trial, participants who were 70 years old took NTFactor® for eight weeks, and at the end of those eight weeks their mitochondrial function (cellular function) was equal to that of a healthy 29 year old. The improvement is sustainable so long as the person continues to use NTFactor®, according to the published study. The key measurement was the mitochondrial membrane potential.

How does NTFactor® differ from other nutrients that claim to help cellular function?
NTFactor® provides the ability to restore lost membrane function. Typically, nutrients can help to mitigate future damage but only NTFactor® is proven to be able to restore lost membrane function. An example is that we expect older people to have less energy. In one clinical trial NTFactor® products restored the energy producing ability (called mitochondrial function) in elderly people to levels normal for young healthy adults.
