A Whole Food Approach

Research on important antioxidant nutrients has demonstrated that only when the nutrient is in the form of food will it deliver its full wisdom to support health.* For example, take Vitamin C, which is widely recognized for its cell protective and immune supportive effects. As a whole-food complex it’s far more useful to the human body than the megadose of chemically isolated, ascorbic acid found in synthetic supplements and multivitamins. Why? Because your body won’t fully recognize and absorb all of the synthetic Vitamin C, allowing many of the milligrams to pass right through your body, potentially reducing their benefit. Not to mention that the synthetic Vitamin C has none of the health-giving phytonutrients nature intended – the ones your body needs and will benefit from when the Vitamin C is delivered as a whole-food complex.

Nature’s Immune Supporting Wisdom

Nature has provided us with an array of foods, herbs and probiotics that, when sufficiently concentrated and intelligently blended, can support our immune function. You’ll find Nature’s immune supporting wisdom in many of our products.
