A number of our nutraceuticals are formulated to combine concentrated nutrition, selected immune-boosting substances, and glandular extracts to provide the boost to immunity that is so needed today. Look in the "Immune"category.
We do not use nutritional supplements containing USP “nutrients” that are not real food. Standard supplements contain synthetic substances, isolated factors, and inorganic minerals. That means mineral tablets made from rocks!
Real foods contain enzymes, protein chaperones, and other substances and co-factors needed for nutrient utilization and transport. Isolates and inorganic ingredients are not complete and are simply inferior as nutrients, as proven by assays. All the supporting substances occurring in nature are in the vitamin complexes that we sell.
“Naturopathy does not make use of synthetic or inorganic vitamins or minerals”
(1947 resolution of the American Naturopathic Association)
In 1999, the Nobel Prize for medicine was awarded to Günter Blobel who proved that minerals need protein chaperones in order to be absorbed into cellular receptors. When mineral salts without protein chaperones are consumed, “It is after digestion when other mineral forms have their mineral cleaved from their carriers. In this situation, these minerals become charged ions, and their absorbability becomes in jeopardy. These charged free minerals are known to block the absorption of one another, or to combine with other dietary factors to form compounds that are unabsorbable.”
Nutrient-dense FOOD is used to concentrate all of Nature's goodness into a convenient form for you to take.
Traditional foods from many cultures contained plenty of health-building factors. Many of them are in our supplements.
Many herbal medicines that people now seek out have been used as food for centuries. We combine nutrients with plant remedies for powerful effects.
