Increasing overall Health with Nutritional Supplements
"But I eat healthy," you might say. That may be but if you are not supplementing
your diet with nutritional supplements then you likely have certain nutritional
deficiencies. You might be eating everything you should be but the problem is that
the majority of our fruits and vegetables today do not have the nutrients they once
had. They have been stripped of their valuable nutrients by big business farming
practices, premature picking and improper storage practices. While we may think we
are eating well we are eating empty calories from nutrient stripped food grown in
land stripped of the necessary minerals to produce healthy food.
Could this improper nutrition be why we have so much disease today? Consider your
grandparents and their families and think about how long they lived. You will find
that for the most part they lived longer and without the help of pharmaceutical
medications. Elderly people today seem to be on long lists of drugs and they are
still plagued by Alzheimers and other disease. There were two differences in their
lives. They were not subject to the environmental hazards which plague our world
today and their food was wholesome.
Our food is probably not going to get any better. Therefore it is a necessity to
supplement with professional quality nutritional supplements.
With so many supplements on the market making outrageous claims it can be difficult
to know which ones are good. Some supplements claim that you must use a liquid
supplement because tablets don't break down in the body. This is simply not true. If
it were, most of our medications would be in liquid form. This is only a problem
when tablet supplements are not designed with quality in mind so that they break
down. In fact, liquid supplements are not as effective as properly made tablets
because the acid in the stomach attacks it before it has a chance to be absorbed
into the blood stream. Pharmaceutical grade medications have solved this problem by
using a special enteric coating which is designed to protect the tablet while it
passes through the stomach. Our third generation Total Balance supplements now use
this coating technology.
The delivery systems or coating is one aspect of a quality supplement but what about
the formula itself. Of equal importance is the quality of the ingredients and the
manufacturing and blending procedures.
Not only are the ingredients important but the formula mixture is also vital to a
quality supplement. Different ingredients react differently with each other. They
can react in a positive way but also in dangerous ways. Dr. A. Munem, head of our
Research and Development department, examines how our ingredients interact with each
other to ensure correct formulas.
Selecting the right ingredients is very important because there can be huge
variances in ingredients from different manufacturers. Biotin for example is
available from 3% potency to 99% potency. While most manufacturers use raw
ingredients with approximately 20% active ingredients we use more potent versions
which have 60% potency.
Herbal ingredients can have even greater variations than other ingredients because
of the different extraction methods that are used and the percentage of actives. For
example, in some instances the non active ingredient can actually be more active in
the product than the active ingredient because it is needed to carry the active
The other problem with so many supplements is that they often do not contain what
they claim to contain. First of all, this occurs because of the fact that there are
no regulatory requirements in the USA where these supplements are made. This problem
is then made worse because of the intense competition among supplement
manufacturers. Secondly, this happens because of the complexity of the blending
It is important that you understand the issues around supplements and how to choose
good quality nutritional supplementation. Something to also keep in mind is that
just because a product says it is manufactured in an FDA approved facility or a
pharmaceutical facility this only means that the facility has met certain hygiene
