WHICH DAILY SUPPLEMENT SHOULD I TAKE
Feel like you hear about a new supplement every day? Take one pill to boost brain health, another to improve digestion... the list goes on and on. How do you know which supplements are made with quality ingredients and which ones are right for you? This question was the reason Natural Biology was found in 2002. Our founder saw a need to offer supplements with clinical grade nutrients versus food grade because they were more therapeutic - and he wanted to discover a better alternative to the multivitamin.
The industry lures people to buy their products by promising less pain, more energy, heals this, heals that, better digestion - much like the drug industry. After all, we have a drug mentality. Take a pill. Feel better. And, sometimes it works. The industry sells lots of multivitamins because they are cheap to make and the most profitable product in a vitamin store.
What if there were a better way? There is. There are now literally hundreds, if not thousands of studies, that show if you build a solid nutritional core, getting research-proven nutrients working at the cellular level, chances are you will have more energy, better digestion, brain speed, less aches and pains, get sick less, etc.
There are two ways to do this. One is you can take a traditional multivitamin and these days they are usually sprinkled with some additional ingredients to make them look better than they are. 84% of the population takes a multivitamin despite evidence they are poorly absorbed, usually come in outdate tablet deliver systems, and offer poor nutrient quality - they are also synthetic. Natural Biology began experimenting in 2005 and created the concept of the multi-nutrient formula - and it's caught on, but for some reasons most companies just dressed up the old multivitamin - giving them names like whole foods without any whole foods in them. Or they throw 10mg of this and 5mg of that - when studies say you need 200mg to receive the benefits. You get it. It's called in the industry window dressing. Have you seen the ads like "101 of the World's Best Ingredients"? The only problem is there's no study that says you need 101 ingredients, and more importantly what is the potency, purity level, and efficacy of each ingredient.
Green tea is perhaps the most studied natural ingredient of all times. A meta-analysis of university research suggest if you supplement with green tea you need 200mg of Green Tea 99% 45% ECGC - so why do companies even sell 50% green tea or put only 25mg in a formula. That's what motivated our founder to only use clinical grade because its not only the higher quality, it implies you put the right amount. Optimize Your Nutritional Profile That is what Natural Biology is all about - optimizing your nutritional profile. The average human being has 37 trillion cells. We want our supplements to infuse the nutrients it needs into every cell in your body, to improve your opportunities for a healthier nervous system, cardio vascular system, skin, mental function, immune system, hormonal system, antioxidant protection, and digestive system. .
We use SUPER NUTRIENTS at the same potencies and purity levels used in a meta-analysis of major university research. We are not trying to cure anything; however, we make supplement that work 100% of time. Why? The nutrients in all our formulas are essentials to human health, energy, and well-being. We just want you to feel your absolute best. All our ingredients, the best of the best, are highly absorbed because the ingredients we select are tested to have high active ingredient content (the reason you supplement), are bioavailable, and have human efficacy. That last point cannot be overemphasized. A lot of ingredients test well in rats and test tubes but not humans.
We only use ingredients tested and studied in human trials. That's why our resveratrol is so successful. 99% of the resveratrol sold comes from polygonum cuspidatum (Japanese Knot Root from China) - and it test better in a test tube than our French Red Wine Grape Extract - but it does not work in human and is a waste of money, while ours has incredible results in human studies. Our resveratrol cost us 10 times more than the cheap polygonum cuspidatum but is literally 1000s of times better/ EVEREST Earth & Sea Formula, 4GRAMS, and 7 BASICS optimize your nutritional profile with an advance formula of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, probiotics, resveratrol, adaptogens, and co-factors. We derived these factors from seaweed, coral, super foods, algae, and botanicals - from all over the world. Each product is comprehensive and balanced - and eliminates the need for dozens of other supplements.
Each one of these products provides one of the most advanced arrays of antioxidants in history - which makes each of these products an incredible value. EVEREST and 4GRAMS have actual vitamins and minerals like a multivitamin but also contain naturally occurring ones as well. 7 BASICS consist of 100% Natural, Organic Super Nutrients with every thing naturally occurring - vitamins, minerals, ionic minerals, adaptogens, antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids, probiotics, and co-factors. It's the one supplement, no matter what else you take, you can take to optimize your nutrition, your energy, and your well being.
They all work because they optimize your nutrition at the cellular level by nourishing, protecting, and energizing your cells - which in turn rejuvenates your tissues, which make up your organs, which make up all your body systems and functions.
BUILD YOUR NUTRITIONAL CORE FIRST - THEN EVERYTHING ELSE TENDS TO FALL INTO PLACE AND WORK EXPONENTIALLY BETTER...
Mission Cellular Health – is determined by trillions of cells that make up your body. Essential micro-nutrients (vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, minerals, antioxidants, phyto-nutrients, glyco-nutrients) are needed for all the bio-chemical reactions that take place in your body. When your cells are healthy, you are healthy. When your cells are deprived of vital micro-nutrients, these deficiencies may cause serious health problems. Cellular dysfunction ultimately leads to the development of chronic disease(s). Today, more than ever, we need and extra layer of micro-nutrients protection to combat the harmful chemicals found in our water, food, and our environment which includes our homes! The evidence for this is our family and friends. Look at the number of medical treatments and prescription drugs being prescribed for diseases that virtually did not exist 100 years ago.
Medically we have come a long way in eradicating deaths due to infection, injury, and epidemic threats like polio, but at the same time cancer(s), diabetes, cardio-vascular disease(s), depression, asthma, allergies, and weight gain have exploded onto the scene of human history. Research indicates this is due largely in part to sub-clinical deficiencies – our bodies are simply not receiving from our diets enough of what they really need to fight off toxins and stresses of modern living. Therefore, to address this cellular health problem, we must insure we give ourselves the resources available today that will nourish, protect, repair, and rejuvenate cellular health.
These are exciting times because today science is at an exponentially accelerated rate discovering the secrets of nature – and today there are thousands of university studies surrounding micro-nutrients that validate our products. Natural Biology uses meta-analysis which is a method of analyzing research and translating that research our products.
These natural products will increase your bio-energy because they contain higher potencies of active ingredients research has proven your cells will respond to – thus revolutionary cellular health…. (This is the orthomolecular approach of changing your cellular environment to improve one’s health.) The Natural Biology Difference is the Formula: Micro-Nutrients – are natural organic or inorganic substances. What separates the best-of-class is the active ingredient profile. Natural Biology goes to great lengths to insure each ingredient we use has the highest possible active ingredient(s).
We use ingredients from over 50 different countries from around the globe to insure best of class. Bio-Balanced – insures the formula you are taking is comprehensive and complete – optimizing the potency, purity, and amount of the micro-nutrients you are receiving Progressive Formula - simply means that research will constantly provide new discoveries that will improve our quality of life with better micro-nutrients. Natural Biology is committed to make adjustments to our formulations on a timely basis to insure our products reflect these advancements. Potency – is the purity of the ingredient and amount used.
Natural Biology uses the average potency of the major clinical data from university research. This is the same amount often recommended by holistic physicians and other health care specialist. Ortho-Molecular Research - aims to restore the optimum ecological environment for your body's cells by correcting imbalances or deficiencies - using 100% pure and natural vitamins, minerals, amino acids, extracts, enzymes, antioxidants, adaptogenics, phyto-nutrients, herbs, and glyco-nutrients.
Some Definitions of Often Mis-Used Supplement Words:
Super Foods: Two words describe it "Dense Nutrition." Real super foods are spirulina, chlorella, and chia seed to name a few. If it is a super food it has a complete profile of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, probiotics, amino acids, and sometimes omega 3-6-9.
What is Not a Super Food: Dried up fruits and vegetables are good powders but not super foods. The value is obvious, but the problem is you need excessive amounts to optimize one's nutritional profile. Companies use fruit and vegetable powders the most because they are the cheapest. For example, kale powder cost Natural Biology about $4 per kilo whereas the Organic Blue Spirulina (a true super food) cost us $178 per kilo.
Organic: If something is organic it means it has been grown without pesticides. It however does not mean it is nutritionally dense. Most of the times organic is better but it is not always nutritionally rich. At Natural Biology we look for USDA Organic first on ingredients we use, and also NON-GMO - but we also look at how it was processed to preserve the active ingredients (which is the reason why you select certain formulas or ingredients).
Clinical Grade: There are three grades of ingredients:
- Feed Grade - for animals
- Food Grade - used in supplements and food (mostly powders)
- Clinical Grade - processed for therapeutic health benefits (high-end powders like Blue Spirulina and the best extracts)
Clincal grade is not only the quality of the ingredient it is also the potency, purity level, and amount. Example: Green tea comes in powder form and extract form. Green Tea extracts come in a variety of extract strengths from 50% to 98% - and the best clinical grade one comes in 98% with 45% ECGCs - and clinical grade would be at a minimum of 200mg. Some people might use 98% with 45% ECGCs but if they provide less than 200mg it is not clinical grade.
Multi-Nutrients: It's a term Natural Biology invented in 2003 to describe the next generation of products beyond the multivitamin. Rather than making a multivitamin and sprinkling in other ingredients in small dosages to make it look better than it is, Natural Biology reversed the formulation. We start with a multi-nutrient formula of antioxidants, extracts, botanicals, adaptogens, enzymes, probiotics, and amino acids - developing a nutritionally balanced and complete formula. In some products we add a high potency multivitamin to it.
