Increasing overall Health with Nutritional Supplements


"But I eat healthy," you might say. That may be but if you are not supplementingyour diet with nutritional supplements then you likely have certain nutritionaldeficiencies. You might be eating everything you should be but the problem is thatthe majority of our fruits and vegetables today do not have the nutrients they oncehad. They have been stripped of their valuable nutrients by big business farmingpractices, premature picking and improper storage practices. While we may think weare eating well we are eating empty calories from nutrient stripped food grown inland stripped of the necessary minerals to produce healthy food.

Could this improper nutrition be why we have so much disease today? Consider yourgrandparents and their families and think about how long they lived. You will findthat for the most part they lived longer and without the help of pharmaceuticalmedications. Elderly people today seem to be on long lists of drugs and they arestill plagued by Alzheimers and other disease. There were two differences in theirlives. They were not subject to the environmental hazards which plague our worldtoday and their food was wholesome.

Our food is probably not going to get any better. Therefore it is a necessity tosupplement with professional quality nutritional supplements.

With so many supplements on the market making outrageous claims it can be difficultto know which ones are good. Some supplements claim that you must use a liquidsupplement because tablets don't break down in the body. This is simply not true. Ifit were, most of our medications would be in liquid form. This is only a problemwhen tablet supplements are not designed with quality in mind so that they breakdown. In fact, liquid supplements are not as effective as properly made tabletsbecause the acid in the stomach attacks it before it has a chance to be absorbedinto the blood stream. Pharmaceutical grade medications have solved this problem byusing a special enteric coating which is designed to protect the tablet while itpasses through the stomach. Our third generation Total Balance supplements now usethis coating technology.

The delivery systems or coating is one aspect of a quality supplement but what aboutthe formula itself. Of equal importance is the quality of the ingredients and themanufacturing and blending procedures.

Not only are the ingredients important but the formula mixture is also vital to aquality supplement. Different ingredients react differently with each other. Theycan react in a positive way but also in dangerous ways. Dr. A. Munem, head of ourResearch and Development department, examines how our ingredients interact with eachother to ensure correct formulas.

Selecting the right ingredients is very important because there can be hugevariances in ingredients from different manufacturers. Biotin for example isavailable from 3% potency to 99% potency. While most manufacturers use rawingredients with approximately 20% active ingredients we use more potent versionswhich have 60% potency.

Herbal ingredients can have even greater variations than other ingredients becauseof the different extraction methods that are used and the percentage of actives. Forexample, in some instances the non active ingredient can actually be more active inthe product than the active ingredient because it is needed to carry the activeingredient.

The other problem with so many supplements is that they often do not contain whatthey claim to contain. First of all, this occurs because of the fact that there areno regulatory requirements in the USA where these supplements are made. This problemis then made worse because of the intense competition among supplementmanufacturers. Secondly, this happens because of the complexity of the blendingprocess.

It is important that you understand the issues around supplements and how to choosegood quality nutritional supplementation. Something to also keep in mind is thatjust because a product says it is manufactured in an FDA approved facility or apharmaceutical facility this only means that the facility has met certain hygienerequirements.

We follow all of the above procedures in producing our supplements because ourbusiness is based on establishing life long satisfied customers. In order to do thiswe must provide the best value for the money of any professionalhealth supplement. In fact, we guarantee this in writing!
