What is Nutraceutical ?

Nutraceutical Products are derived from food sources to treat the root causes of disease ( ie chronic disease & autoimmune dysfunction ) to restore a healthy function to the total body. 

Our differences !

All of our products are formulated with the highest bioavailability. To ensure the relative absorption of a nutrient; to yield the highest therapeutic value with the lowest side-effect profile.

Bioavailability in regards to nutraceutical formulation can have a major impact on its therapeutic action.

The key stage of nutraceutical bioefficiency is oral bioavailability, which involves the following processes: the release of nutraceuticals from food matrices or nanocarriers in gastrointestinal fluids, is the solubilization of nutraceuticals and their interaction with other components of gastrointestinal fluids.

What Is Nutrient Bioavailability?

When we consume a vitamin or mineral, its bioavailability refers to the amount of the nutrient that has an active effect within our bodies. Put simply, the higher a nutrient's bioavailability is, the more of it that will get sent to the parts of the body that need it.

Here are a few examples on how to maximize bioavailability with supplements.

  1. Take calcium with vitamin D***
  2. Take iron an hour before a meal.
  3. Combine magnesium with carbs.
  4. Eat black pepper with turmeric
  5. Ingest vitamin B12 in the morning.
  6. Take zinc with protein.
  7. Take vitamin C on an empty stomach.

***In 1975, Robert Badeen B-2-H formulator. A pioneer in functional research, working with a group of researchers at the University of Oklahoma, proved vitamin D3 is needed to take calcium across the G.I.gut*.

FYI: Surprisingly 81 percent of people take at least one medication a day. We spend more money than any other country on healthcare, yet our life expectancy is shortened, obesity is more widespread, and the rate of maternal infant death is higher than any other industrialized nation in the world. Why should we have to choose between modern medicine and getting healthy!

What is Functional Medicine ?

Functional medicine asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. It is an approach to patient care that views health and illness as a part of a continuum in which all components of the human biological system interact dynamically with the environment, producing patterns and effects that change over time.

Functional medicine may be described as the clinical application of systems biology. Chronic disease is usually preceded by a period of declining function in one or more of the body’s systems.Restoration of health requires improving the specific dysfunctions that have contributed to the disease state. Functional medicine provides tools and a reproducible method to enable clinicians to identify dysfunction and promote balance in physiology as the primary means of improving patient health.

Human biology is far more complex than the human genome. In fact, most diseases are not genetically determined. It is gene expression rather than genetic inheritance that is essential in the emergence of disease. Gene expression is altered by myriad influences, including environment, lifestyle, diet, activity patterns, psycho-social-spiritual factors, and STRESS. Diet and lifestyle choices and environmental exposures can render disease more or less likely by turning on——or off——established genes.

Functional medicine directly addresses modulators of gene expression, an individual’s environment, and other underlying causes of disease through a systems-oriented approach.
