For years, we’ve repeatedly warned that you can no longer get all the required nutrients your body needs from food, and we’re not alone. Researchers from four reputable institutions recently took issue with the latest claims that vitamin supplements are a waste of money. In a commentary published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, Tufts University, and the Harvard School of Public Health asserted that while a proper diet is the preferred way to get nutrients required by your cells and necessary for optimal health, it’s no longer possible for most Americans. Current lifestyle and dietary choices create “nutritional gaps” that simply cannot be overcome by food alone. What are these nutritional gaps? Most Americans eat a typical diet of overly processed foods containing white flour, sugar, red meat, dairy, and processed vegetable oils. Yet, you may remember us mentioning one study from the University of California at Irvine proving this standard American diet was nutritionally unfit for rats! Cooking foods at high temperatures using unfiltered tap water further destroys nutrients, creates toxins, and adds to the nutritional deficiencies your body must work to overcome. For some, being plagued by chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, Alzheimer’s, and more taxes the ability of cells to function properly. Plus, we continue to warn that prescription medications deplete critical nutrients from your body. Your ability to cover these nutritional gaps is made worse by an unexpected source. Dozens of independent reviews on supplement quality reveal that most are largely ineffective. Too many brands cut corners by using impure or synthetic ingredients, inexpensive fillers, and cheap outdated raw materials that have lost their potency. Many are packed with toxins and allergens, interfere with nutrient absorption, reduce bioavailability at the cellular level, and provide only the minimum Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for critical nutrients further emphasizing what we’ve been saying all along ─ “The most expensive vitamin is one that doesn’t work!” That almost always means they are substantially less biologically active and even harmful, creating gaps in nutrition that your body must resolve to stay healthy. Just like the Linus Pauling Institute and others, we strongly believe that supplementing with key quality nutrients can effectively fill these nutritional gaps. Everyone can benefit from supplementing Decades of published research show supplements increase energy and stress tolerance, benefit pregnancy outcomes, slow infection rates and loss of bone tissue, protect against heart disease and cancer, and prevent and treat migraines, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, depression…and much more! At a minimum, we suggest most individuals will need to take a daily multi-vitamin, extra vitamin C, and a blend of essential fatty acids (EFAs) to receive these benefits. But, you must get your supplements from a trusted source. Why? Because these nutrients need to be in the purest, most biologically active forms, or you’re wasting your money. Our vast experience in nutrition and biochemistry means our products simply work better…so you experience better health. For your convenience, we’ve designed our Beyond Health Basic Wellness Kit to include our popular multi-vitamin, superior-grade vitamin C, and a blend of essential fatty acids. This combination of critical nutrients is a solid foundation to provide the boost you need to cover “nutritional gaps” in your diet and lifestyle.
