To attain optimum health, I believe there is nothing better you can eat than a diet rich in unprocessed WHOLE foods which includes beneficial bacteria.

We can restore our fundamental birthright of vital health by eating whole food in its unadulterated. nutrient dense, pristine form and avoiding food containing pesticides, herbicides, chemicals or genetic alteration. It would mean eating as we did 100 years ago. Can't be done say? It does look bleak, especially when you realize in order to get the iron available in one cup of spinach in 1940. one would have to consume 65 cups today. An orange that contained 50mg of vitamin C complex in 1950 now has about 5mg. In many areas, our topsoil is completely devoid of living nutrients. Much of our produce (even organic) is grown from genetically altered seeds. Bona-fide organic produce is often difficult to find, expensive and can lose vital nutrients because of long transit time to the store. And although people are taking more supplements than ever before, dread diseases are skyrocketing. So, what's the answer? PERFECT FOOD

PERFECT FOOD is a completely absorbable, highly concentrated whole food. It contains whole nutritional complexes which the body can choose as it needs and
excrete what it does not.... this is called selective absorption. With fractionated or isolated and/or synthetic vitamins there is no choice, the body must handle the chemical in some manner.These isolates can act as free radicals in the body.creating stress instead of help.





33:1 DENSELY CONCENTRATED CERTIFIED ORGANIC GRASS JUICES (usual is 5:1 or 10:1 concentrate).




Each serving Is the nutritional equivalent of 10 servings of vegetables. The ingredients are certified organic, organic or chemical free. PERFECT FOOD can be used as a meal replacement and is safe for children of all ages as well as pets.


33:1 Certified Organic Cereal Grass Juice Concentrates of Kamut, Barley, Alfalfa, Oat and Dandelion; Spirulina, Chlorella, Dunalialla, Sea Kelp, Sea Dulse and Sea

Kamut Grass is known for its intense cleansing properties and is unsurpassed in its ability to stimulate the immune system to promote healing. Barley Grass has 30 tomes more Vitamin B-1 than milk, 7 times more Vitamin C than oranges and 5 times more iron than spinach. Alfalfa Grass is the father of all foods, containing highly absorbable trace minerals, every known vitamin and 8 essental amino acids. Oat Grass has unique proteins & lipids that may positively affect male reproductive organs. Dandelion Grass is an excellent blood cleanser and diuretic. Chlorella, thought to be the earth's first green plant, is 6O% protein and a natural source of growth factors. It has great atioxidant capabilities. Spirulina is an amazing source of complete, highly digestive vegetarian protein, proportionately higher than meat and fish, and has the greatest source of B-12 analogue in nature.


Pure Concentrates of Certified Organic Carrot, Tomato, Beet, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Kale, Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, Parsley, Spinach, Asparagus, Cucumber, Celery, Onion, Green Bell Pepper, Garlic and Ginger. This blend contains phytonutrients largely absent from our modern diets.

Particularly high in cruciferous vegetables, the Perfect Veggie Blend contains valuable phytochemicals such as sulforophane that has been implicated in disease prevention.

Carrot juice is the most valuable source of beta-carotene, Beet Juice helps to rebuild the liver by stimulating the lymphatc system and helps strengthen organs such as the gall bladder and kidneys. Tomato juice contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant.


RiceX Solubles combined with Certified Organic Pre-digested Concentrates of Whole Wheat, Barley, Oats and Rye kernels (gluten free) containing 22 amino acids, 90 antioxidant complexes, EFA, and is a potent source of B vitamins, Tocotrienols (40-60 times stronger than vitamin E as an antioxidant) and Tocopherols (Vitamin E). This whole food contains over 26% fatty acids.

RiceX Solubles is highly concentrated rice bran, the world's most nutritious food. The fiber has been completely removed and it has been stabilized to prevent rancidity.

I have client who have used Perfect Food to help reduce cholesterol and stabilize blood their sugar. The pre-digested whole grain kernels are essential for those who have difficulty digesting grains, thereby missing out on all these essential nutrients. 100% gluten tree.


Certified Organic Chia Seed, high lignan Flax Seeds. Sesame Seeds and Sunflower Seeds all naturally stabilized for freshness. Flax seed is the most potent source of plant lignans and essential fats such as Omega 3 and 6 EFA. It also has high levels of beta glucans (soluble fibers) that are effective in lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol. Chia Seed is the most nutritious (and expensive) of all seeds, full of essential tatty acids including Omega 3,6,9 and 18. It contains powerful antioxidants and highly digestible proteins.


Pre-digested Blend of Raw Fermented Foods. Includes Certified Organic Spirulina, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Alfalfa Grass, Buckwheat, Millet, Maize, Brown Rice, and Soy, all non-GMO and gluten free. Our bio-activated foods contain pre-digested proteins, carbohydrates, fats and are abundant in antioxidants. Pre-digestion through fermentation is an ancient process practiced by some of the longest living societies in the world. This process breaks down the foods before they are eaten to insure much quicker absorption and optimal assimilation, especially critical for people with poor digestion. Fermented foods are so bio-available they provide from two to five times the nutritional value as their non-fermented counterparts.


An exclusive formula of beneficial soil organisms and multiple strains of probiotics from pre-digested whole plant sources. Homeostatic soil organisms combined with hardy strains of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria provide the complete spectrum of probiotics. These beneficial bacteria produce large amounts of digestive enzymes and immune enhancing chemicals. An aggressive formula that helps cleanse the entire digestive tract, flush out pathogenic bacteria, and is effective against parasites, yeast, molds, and fungi.

Phytosterols/sterolins are also provided because they have proven anti-inflammatory properties and promote optimal immune system functioning.

PRIMAL DEFENSE ® is a restoration of complete nutrient complexes that used to be in our foods. When we ate closer to the soil, we consumed these critical nutrients:


The base ingredient of this unique formula is the original proprietary beneficial bacteria (HSO) used for over 20 years. The naturally occurring colony arrays of soil organisms are non-mutated from the original cultures found in unpolluted soil and are now cultured in U.S. labs using the discoverer's proprietary methods. HSO are in a substrate of trace elements, enzymes and proteins from plant life that contain over 70 trace minerals and micronutrients. This substrate and exclusive delivery system keeps the product dormant in the capsule but alive through the digestive process.

Beneficial soil bacteria used to be ingested as part of food grown in rich, unpolluted soil. But for the last 50 years, we have been sterilizing our soil wifh pesticides and herbicides, killing most soil bacteria both bad and good. Our modern lifestyle, which includes anfl-biotic drug use, chlorinated water, chemical ingestion and pollution, is responsible for eradicating much of the remaining beneficial bacteria in our bodies.

A lack of beneficial bacteria and inadequate diet are main causes of sluggish bowels. Poor waste elimination often results in auto-intoxication, or ntestinal toxemia, which is a poisoning of the body from built-up waste material seeping into the rest of the body ("leaky-gut").


The immune system simply will not function at the necessary optimal levels wifhout plant lipids (fats) called sterols and sterolins. Found in freshly harvested plants, plant sterolins are completely dissipated within 6-8 hours after harvest. Accordingly, we get very few of these indispensable lipids since most of the produce we buy (including organic) is out of the ground for longer than 6 hours; those sterolins that are left are destroyed by cooking, freezing and processing. More than 130 studies have shown that restoring this concentrated PhytoSterol/Sterolin substance to the diet in therapeutic amounts increased the immune response significantly in many autoimmune and low immunity patients.


Densely nutritious green foods are the very source of life. To function optimally, we must consume three to five servings of RAW green leafy vegetables daily. To contain the necessary minerals and bacteria, these plants must be grown in fertile soil free from poisons. They must then be eaten within several hours of harvesting. Obviously we can't get this today, even in organic produce. So what can we do? Ingest highly concentrated, certified organic cereal grass juices.

More information about Cereal Grass Juices can be accessed on the PERFECT FOOD page.

PRIMAL DEFENSE ® is made up of three products in one 500 mg. capsule. It contains:

260 mg of HSO benefcial bacteria,
These include: L. Acidophilus, L.Bifidum, L. Lactis and L. Bulgaricus in a host medium of plant derived minerals and ionic trace elements originating from ancient sea deposits.

80 mg. of a phyto sterol/sterolin blend from sprouts of Wild African Potato, Oilseed Plant, Lupins, Fenugreek, Barley, Wheat, Soybean and African Sunflower

160 mg. of Certified Organic Green Grass Juices in a nutrient dense 33:1 concentration in the following ratio: 55% Kamut Grass Juice, 15% Alfalfa Grass Juice, 15% Oat Grass Juice and 15 % Barley Grass Juice


Impervious to stomach acids and the digestive process, the microorganisms move through the stomach to the intestinal tract where they form colonies along the intestinal walls. HSO multiply in the intestines and actually compete with harmful bacteria for receptor sites, crowding out the pathogens and taking their place. Once established, the organisms quickly begin producing the proper environment to absorb nutrients and help to reestablish the proper pH.

HSO work from the inside of the intestines dislodging accumulated decay on the walls and flushing out waste.

HSO break down hydrocarbons - a unique ability to split food into its most basic elements allowing almost total absorption through the digestive system. This increases overall nutrition and enhances cellular developmont.

HSO produce specific proteins that act as antigens, encouraging the immune system to produce huge pools of uncoded antibodies. This increased production of B-cells and antibodies may significantly boost the body's abitlity to ward off dieases.

HSO are very agressive agains pathological molds, yeast, fungi, bacteria, parasites and viruses.

HSO work in symbiosis with our cells to metabolize proteins and eliminate toxic waste.

HSO provide critical Lactoferrin supplementation. The organisms produce lactoferrin as a by-product of their metabolism. Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein essential for retrieving iron from food.

Candida and Yeast Cleanse

-Powerful Anti-Candida Formula

-Contains Potent Anti-Yeast and Anti-Fungal Compounds

-Stimulates and Enhances Immune Functions

-Probiotic Strains of Beneficial HSOs (Homeostatic Soil Organisms)

-Restores Healthy Intestinal Flora

-Utilizes Exclusive Poten-Zyme Process

The Yeast/Fungus Link

It is now believed that yeast overgrowth in the body often referred to as Candidiasis, is actually caused by a systemic fungal infection. Understanding this fungal link is the key to restoring proper system-wide balance.

Normally, fungi live in a healthy balance with other microorganisms including bacteria and yeasts; however, certain conditions can cause fungi to multiply, weakening the immune system and causing infection. Because fungi travel through the bloodstream to many parts of the body, varying symptoms may manifest including:

oral thrush
food allergies
bowel disorders
ear and sinus irritation
intense itching
jock itch
athletes foot
gastrointestinal problems
canker sores
environmental sensitivities

Fungal Defense delivers nature's most effective anti-yeast and fungal compounds to actively help eliminate Candida from your body.

What Is Candida?

Candida Albicans is a single celled fungal yeast. Among the most prolific organisms on the planet, it is impossible to keep it out of your body. In a healthy person, it does little harm because its population is kept in check by beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) which are, however, easily destroyed by antibiotics, many prescription medications, birth control pills, poor diet, and daily stress. This can then cause the Candida yeast to grow out of control, producing chemicals that are toxic to the body. Yeast overgrowth is thought to affect over 40 million Americans, both men and women, and is especially prevalent in hyperactive children and those with ADD and ADHD.

A Word On Diet

The powerful ingredients in Fungal Defense are specifically targeted to destroy yeast and other fungi and to restore a balanced, healthy internal environment. To prevent re-infection and to maintain a properly balanced system, it is critical to reduce, or in some cases, eliminate the intake of the following foods: sweets, carbohydrates (such as bread, pasta, muffins, glutenous grains, etc), alcohol, vinegar, fruits, and aged cheeses - as these foods (especially sugars and carbs) feed the yeast which thrive in sugary environments and actually cause you to crave these very foods.

Powerful Anti-Fungal Compounds HSOs
and Their Probiotic Function:

We usually have a balance of approximately 85% good to 15% harmful organisms in the intestinal tract but most of us today have the opposite ratio. Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs) are highly stable beneficial probiotic microorganisms. Impervious to stomach acids, they crowd out pathogens, eliminating yeast, fungi and bad bacteria from the intestines.

The Enzyme Connection:

Candida research favorably supports the indespensible role of specific enzymes and their ability to literally digest Candida cell walls. The Fungal Defense formula utilizes potent amounts of both cellulase and protease. Cellulase breaks down fibrous carbohydrates while protease hydrolyzes (digests) protein. These two enzymes help to dissolve the cell wall of yeast and other fungi.

Wild Oregano and Olive Leaf Extracts:

Fungal Defense contains the most powerful anti-fungal substances found in nature. Wild Oregano and Olive Leaf Extracts are recognized for their potent anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic properties. Their primary fungicidal components work synergistically to help eliminate yeast and fungus on contact.

Garlic and Yucca Juice Extracts:

Known as Russian penicillin, Garlic is considered to be nature's premier antibiotic and anti-fungal. It is effective against bacteria and yeast that may be resistant to antimicrobial medications yet does not destroy the body's normal, friendly flora.

A potent blood purifier, the juice from the Yucca root found predominantly in the desert Southwest aids in digestion and produces surfactants which help to breakdown the lipid envelope that coats certain viruses and fungi including Candida.

Ancient Wisdom - Fermentation

The ancient Greeks understood that important chemical changes took place during fermentation. Their name for this change was "alchemy".
The whole food ingredients in Fungal Defense, are lacto-fermented and enzymatically pre-digested, utilizing a proprietary natural process called Poten-Zyme (Potentiation by Enzymatic activation). This ancient method of bio- fermentation incorporates 14 strains of beneficial micro-organisms and their enzymes into the foods, gently breaking them down into their most basic elements.

Fermentation creates and liberates valuable medicinal compounds within the foods including enzymes, antioxidants, beta glucans, phytosterols, and other phytonutrients - greatly enhancing the nutritional value while making it easier to digest. This assures more complete absorption and delivery of nutrients at the cellular level.

Follow Up:

Because the key to balancing yeast overgrowth is to maintain healthy intestinal flora, we highly recommend that after completion of the 14-day Fungal Defense program, begin taking Primal Defense HSO probiotic formula 6-12 caplets per day for 3-6 months and reduce to a maintenance dosage as per label instructions.

Nature's Cellular Protection

Fruits of Life is a great tasting, 100%
natural blend of powerful antioxidant food concentrates

Fruits of Life is the first and only product to contain the top four FRUITS OF LIFE antioxidant foods on the planet in one whole food powder blend Fruits of Life contains powerful antioxidants such as Ellagic Acid (raspberries), Proanthocyanidins (raisins), Glutathione (goat's milk) and Polyphenols (strawberries)

Fruits of Life contains six certified organic fruits in a base of biologically active minerals, enzymes, and beneficialprobiotics

Fruits of Life is blended using thePoten-Zyme process for increased nutrient bioavailability

What Is Fruits of Life?

Fruits of Life is a revolutionary whole food product designed to assist the body in attaining vibrant health and reverse the aging process at the cellular level. Fruits of Life provides over 21 certified organic nutrients and beneficial probiotics. These specially selected foods, rich in antioxidant and immune-enhancing properties, are blended in a base of alkalizing minerals from hormone-free goat's milk.

For thousands of years, our ancestors regularly ate foods rich in the nutrients necessary to prolong and preserve life. In today's fast paced society it is difficult, if not impossible, to obtain the quality and concentrations of nutrients necessary to positively impact our health on a daily basis. Garden of Life has combined antioxidant rich fruits and alkaline forming minerals in one complete product. Fruits of Life may help your body fight the destructive nature of free radicals and clear the deposits of acidic wastes at the cellular level.

Why Do We Need Antioxidant?

Antioxidants found in our fruits and vegetables help to light and eliminate free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals are considered a major component in aging and disease progression. Research has shown that rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, and even certain types of cancer are the direct result of free radical damage in the body. The destruction of healthy cells may be avoided by simply adding a powerful antioxidant nutrient combination, such as Fruits of Life, to your daily diet.

Why Is Alkalinity Important?

Alkalinity (or the proper pH) is important because, like body temperature, there is an optimal range in which the body prefers to create healthy reactions. Fruits of Life can help ensure that preferred pH range is maintained. The more frequently that preferred pH range is disturbed, the greater the chance of disease. According to Japanese research, the following diseases are associated with over acidity in the body: cancer, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, gout, kidney disease, chronic fatigue, psoriasis, hives, eczema, osteoporosis, constipation, heartburn, asthma, hay fever, allergies, headaches, neuralgia, indigestion, nausea, obesity, tooth and gum diseases, and leg cramps.

What Is in Fruits of Life?

Fruits of Life contains certified organic fruit extracts with high scores in the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absortance Capability) analysis performed at Tufts University in Boston. Foods that score high on this extensive test have been shown to significantly protect cells and their components from oxidative damage and may even slow the processes associated with aging in both body and brain function.

Antioxidant Fruit Blend

BLUEBERRY: Recent studies have shown that blueberries contain powerful antioxidants which may retard the effects of aging and play a significant role in preventing cancer. James Joseph, PhD., further states, "The blueberry has emerged as a very powerful food in the aging battle. Given the possibility that blueberries may reverse short-term memory loss and forestall other affects of aging, their potential may be very great."

STRAWBERRY: A great source of natural vitamin C and a rich source of phytochemicals such as quercetin and ellagic acid. It also contains anthocyanin, a plant chemical that helps protect against heart disease.

RASPBERRY: A rich source of ellagic acid, vitamin C, and fiber.

BLACKBERRY: A concentrated source of anthocyanins and other phytochemicals.

RAISIN: Raisins (dried grapes), contain more than a dozen known antioxidants, as well as resveratrol, a phytonutrient shown to have cancer-prevention effects. Raisins are a rich source of polyphenols and proanthocyanidins, which are recommended in prevention and treatment protocols for cardiovascular disease, cancer, inflammatory conditions, asthma, diabetes, liver disease, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

PRUNE: New studies show that, in addition to being a good source of fiber, prunes may also help slow the aging process in both the body and brain.

Mineral Matrix:

Garden of Life has created this unique blend of alkalizing minerals, enzymes, and probiotics from goat's milk. Mineral Matrix feeds the beneficial flora in the gastrointestinal tract, aiding in proper digestion and elimination. It contains a high concentration of organic sodium and potassium, which produce alkaline reactions at the cellular level and aid in the reduction of acid.

FLAVONOIDS: Flavonoids are potent antioxidants that prevent the formation of free radicals. Flavonoids contain antibacterial and antiviral properties as well as offer protection to the vast network of capillaries and blood vessels in the system. The flavonoids present in Fruits of Life contain properties which help correct vision problems including night blindness. They also strengthen and repair broken capillaries, varicose veins, and cardiac irregularities arising from a decrease in blood flow and arterial blockage.

PROANTHOCYANIDINS: This group of antioxidants is found in the seeds of grapes or raisins, and has known immune enhancing effects.

ANTHOCYANININS: Flavonoids such as anthocyanin, found in blueberries, have a unique chemical structure that makes them 3 - 4 times more potent than vitamin C, according to Ronald L. Prior of Tufts University. Research indicates that anthocyanins offered as much protection as vitamin E against oxidative damage.

ELLAGIC ACID: Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries contain the anticancer compound ellagic acid. It is a naturally occurring plant phenol with the highest concentrations contained in red raspberries. According to Dr. Gary D. Stoner, a pathologist at the Medical College of Ohio, ellagic acid is an antioxidant that helps detoxify cancer-causing agents in several different ways. Ellagic acid helps inhibit four different types of cancer causing agents, including aflatoxin and nitrosamines.

GLUTATHIONE: Glutathione is considered to be the most important antioxidant for overall health. Dairy products, such as the goat's milk contained in the Fruits of Life Mineral Matrix, are potent sources of glutathione precursors. Glutathione helps regenerate cell tissue and is the most valuable detoxifying agent in the body. Low levels of glutathione are associated with early aging and premature death.

The Poten-Zyme Process

The nutrient dense foods and Mineral Matrix blend in Fruits of Life are pre-digested using the proprietary Poten-Zyme process (Poten-tiation by Enzym-atic activation). This proprietary process is an exclusive natural process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic predigestion, carefully blended into selected whole foods. The bioavailability and absorption of nutrients using this unique process is increased from 2-5 times. People with sensitive digestive systems can benefit tremendously from the increased nutrient values the Poten~Zyme process yields. The Poten-Zyme process creates and liberates valuable compounds within the foods including: enzymes, antioxidants, beta glucans, phytosterols, and many others.

Fruits of Life tastes great and can be mixed with water, juice, smoothies, cereal, yogurt, or eaten right out of the bottle.

    Why Choose Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal?

    With Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal, you can rest assured that our vitamins are uncooked, untreated and unadulterated, with no binders or fillers and always dairy-free and gluten-free. These factors alone should make Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal your multivitamin of choice. But there's even more to Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal making it even more valuable.

    Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal contains clinically studied probiotics that not only enhance the immune systems of mothers, but that of their babies as well.  Vitamin Code Prenatal is also a wonderful multivitamin for newly lactating mothers-with the immune support extending to that of the newborn, breast-fed baby.  For any mother looking to give her child a "head start", supporting the child's immune system, even before birth, is a must.

    During pregnancy, blood volume can increase up to 50%, increasing iron requirements and causing the heart to work harder to support the developing child's needs. Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal Formula supports heart health and blood health with raw food-created iron, vitamins C, E, and B-Complex, plus folate.

    Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal also contains 800mcg of raw food-created folate. The Centers for Disease Control recommends at least 400mcg of folate in support of healthy neural tube development before conception through at least the first trimester of pregnancy.  Folate is a B vitamin found mostly in green, leafy vegetables such as spinach or kale. Supporting healthy neural tube development decreases the risk of babies being born with a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord.

    And of course, feeling your best at this unbelievable time is why Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal also contains ginger for morning sickness.  Ginger has been traditionally used for generations to ease the common digestive discomforts typically associated with being pregnant.


    Taking care of you and your unborn baby is of utmost importance during this amazing journey. Your body, and the tiny developing body inside you require the finest, high-quality, prenatal supplementation available. Isn't it time you started taking Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal?

    Can We Do Better?

    For all the so-called benefits attributed to isolated and synthetic nutrients and all of the progress we think we have made in improving the health of the nation, there are many health experts who say we can do even better. They note that three of four Americans will develop heart disease and half will die from it. Diabetes is striking baby boomers with a vengeance. About six percent of our population presently has diabetes and many gerontologists believe that percentage will increase significantly as the boomers enter their fifties and sixties. (And they say that diet and nutrition will be crucial to helping persons with diabetes maintain their health and reduce their risk of complications.)

    Already, some 21 million pre-diabetic Americans experience glucose intolerance, leading to Syndrome X, a condition characterized by high blood pressure and obesity. Some 200,000 Americans die every year from high blood pressure and stroke. One-third of Americans are obese. To get a better picture of what this means in pure numbers of mortality, our current health crisis can be computed into airline crashes; for the number of deaths resulting from heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes, you would have 3,650 jumbo jet crashes a year, assuming there are 300 sickly passengers on each jet, 3,000 people a day dying from heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes alone. Synthetic or isolated nutrients may be better than nothing, but not good enough. Adding them to whole food concentrates is better but still not the way to get our optimal health back.

    Can Living Multi Help?

    One of the answers might well be Living Multi. This vitamin and mineral formulation takes us way past USP, food-based or even so-called whole food vitamin and mineral products. It takes us back to a more primitive form of nutrition, one paradoxically far more sophisticated and wonderous in its nutritional offering and health benefits than your typical multi vitamin.

    The key to achieving optimal health can be accomplished by doing three things.

    1. Supercharge Cellular Nutrition.

    As we will show below, the nutrients in Living Multi are far more able to interact at the cellular level to provide body-ready nutrients where you need them most. Simply forcing larger amounts of nutrients is not the answer. The answer lies in the delivery of these nutrients across the cell wall where we need them most.

    2. Facilitate Detoxification.

    Living Multi's homeostatic nutrient complexes aids the body's detoxifications processes like no other multiple vitamin and mineral formula, reducing the overall toxic load, neutralizing subacute microbial infestations, and even aiding removal of poisons such as xenobiotics and heavy metals from our internal environment. Living Multi with its naturally occurring blend of probiotics, enzymes and organic acids enhances the body's elimination of wastes through the normal elimination channels such as the kidneys and bowels.

    3. Reduce Oxidative Stress.

    The free radical theory of aging, although long taken for granted, is best achieved through a high intake of antioxidant or free radical fighting nutrients. Free radical damage or oxidative stress has been implicated in no less than 60 health disorders. Living Multi contains optimal doses of the most effective antioxidants known to man and yet to be discovered.

    By bolstering cellular nutrition, facilitating detoxification and reducing oxidative stress and damage, we may be able to reduce the risk factors for three of our most deadly diseases:

    1. Modify risk factors for Cancer.

    Now striking greater than one in three Americans, epidemiological studies indicate that without a doubt your cancer risk at any age is not fixed. Your cellular DNA responds to its environment on an immediate basis. By feeding cells protective nutrients, and detoxifying the body from harmful fat soluble and other toxins, your risk can be modified.

    2. Reduce risk factors for Heart disease.

    Preventing the oxidation of cholesterol prevents plaque. Preventing plaque build-up helps to maintain arterial flexibility and avoid dangerous blockages. The combination of effective levels of B-6, B-12 and folic acid, contained in Living Multi can help lower elevated homocysteine levels a key to reducing cardiovascular disease risk.

    3. Reduce risk factors for Diabetes.

    Restoring the body's ability to utilize insulin (insulin sensitivity) with the mineral and enzyme rich homeostatic nutrient complexes in Living Multi (especially the potent botanicals such as reishi and other tonic mushrooms, Rhododendron caucasicum and Caucasian blueberry leaf) may help reduce sugar cravings, thereby lowering blood sugar and preventing diabetic-related syndromes, including hypertension, obesity, and elevated blood lipids.

    We also accomplish nine essential functional health goals with Living Multi:

    1. Modulate Immune System Function.

    Among the most important immune modulators in Living Multi is the blend of 11 medicinal mushrooms, Rhodendron caucasicum, and the many immune enhancing compounds created by the probiotic microorganisms during fermentation. The polysaccharides (including beta-glucans) in these mushrooms and bacterial cell walls support the activity of the body's white blood cells (macrophages), and NK (natural killer) cells increasing natural resistance. The entire blend provides powerful adaptogenic qualities that allow the body to more capably handle environmental and psychological stresses.

    2. Promote Optimal Digestion and elimination.

    As we shall discuss (below), Living Multi's homeostatic nutrient complexes support the body's digestive processes with live beneficial probiotics, enzymes and organic acids. This aids in the body's absorption of nutrients and helps to reduce symptoms of indigestion such as gas, bloating, heartburn and constipation.

    3. Control Blood Sugar.

    The addition of Caucasian blueberry and apple skin, as well ionized trace minerals and many other thousands of phyotchemicals present in the formula promote optimal blood sugar balance.
    Improve Energy and Performance. The combination of nutrients present in green foods and medicinal mushrooms as well as the highly absorbable B-Vitamins and over 80 trace elements in Living Multi, unlock stored energy in the body and make it available to us. The digestive, food and metabolic enzymes contained reduce the amount of energy needed for digestion thus tapping into a normally unattainable source of energy.

    4. Reduce risk factors of age-related neuro-degeneration.

    The powerful antioxidant complexes contained in Living Multi have been shown to reverse age-related neuro-degeneration in animals. There is evidence that our ancestors experienced sound mental and cognitive function even into their old age. Today we see our elderly suffering up to 15% of their lives robbed of virtually all brain power.

    5. Reduce risk factors for obesity.

    Normalizing blood sugar by increasing insulin sensitivity and improving glucose intolerance is perhaps one of the most important factors in reducing food cravings, thus reducing caloric intake and weight gain. The Russian botanical Rhododendron caucasicum has been shown in studies to enhance fat burning and prevent the absorption of excess dietary fat.

    6. Reduce stress and improve emotional well being.

    One particular green grass in the Living Multi vegetable blend, oat grass, is a nervine tonic, meaning it is nourishing and strengthening to the nervous system, useful in nervous exhaustion, stress, and depression, as well as being restorative to the endocrine, nervous, muscular, skeletal, and immune system. The blend of 11 tonic mushrooms has been proven to enhance the body's ability to fight stress.

    7. Lessen allergic responses.

    By enhancing nutritional uptake, reducing inflammation, modulating immune function, facilitating proper detoxification and providing optimal antioxidant protection, Living Multi reduces the allergic response common in so many individuals prone to allergy. Many nutrients contained will also reduce gut hyper-permeability (leaky gut syndrome) which will greatly lessen the incidence of allergies.

    8. Reduce inflammatory markers.

    Living Multi's live probiotic mixture (including HSOs) along with turmeric and ginger has been shown to reduce inflammation. Many nutrients in Living Multi including Alpha Lipoic Acid have been shown to reduce inflammation by quenching free-radicals.

    Building on and advancing this knowledge, Garden of Life has uniquely and naturally complexed each vitamin and mineral in Living Multi using a wide range of beneficial microorganisms in a process that lasts 3-6 weeks resulting in a product that is yeast free. Whereas other so-called whole food vitamin and mineral products can contain up to 75% yeast, a common allergen, Living Multi provides enhanced benefits with no drawbacks.

    9. Clinical Validation

    It might surprise readers to learn that few, if any, multiple vitamin and mineral formulas have ever been clinically studied. Many epidemiological studies (which are always retrospective) have been conducted that show us these may work in general. Thus, the investigational studies that have been underway on Living Multi would seem to make it the most clinically studied multiple vitamin and mineral formula today, surpassing even those from some of the major pharmaceutical companies.

    One study now underway is a double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial taking place at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in collaboration with Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.

    "People take multiple vitamin and mineral formulas because they believe it is an insurance policy," notes Living Multi formulator Jordan Rubin, N.M.D., C.N.C., author of Patient Heal Thyself . We are setting out to prove that Living Multi is just that, except, better than any insurance policy, because it is the insurance policy that will allow you to not have to use your regular insurance policy."

    Before Formulating this product I decided it was imperative to subject it to rigorous double blind clinical trials. Many companies claim that their multiple vitamin mineral accomplishes many things. However, not one of them have yet to prove it. While good ingredients combined with a good story are enough for many companies to generate sales, I believe today's intelligent consumer needs more they need hard clinical data, and combined with unequalled ingredients and a great "true" story, that's what we're going to give them.

    Dr. Rubin, who also pioneered the use of homeostatic soil organisms, notes, "We are going to see how the body is really ONE inter-related system. The problem with many alternative and holistic medicines is that they often try to fix one system or function instead of addressing the whole organism and trying to improve the body's general ability to enhance nutrition and detoxify. With Living Multi we want to put the emphasis on the body and give that body all of the tools it needs to heal itself."

    Rich source of antioxidants and trace minerals Contains the natural co-factors required for optimal nutrient absorption

    When delivered as a supplement with only one form of the nutrient, vitamin C can fail to provide the maximum level of nutrition. That's why our Living Vitamin C supplement is formulated with a comprehensive blend of potent, whole food concentrates; to give you the many forms and benefits of vitamin C as it's found in nature.

    As an added advantage, our Living Vitamin C supplement is formulated with our proprietary Poten-Zyme process. This process yields Homeostatic Nutrient complexes that contain probiotics, antioxidants and enzymes; the co-factors needed to turn ordinary vitamins and minerals into living whole foods that can be effectively absorbed and used by our bodies.
    Give your body the full spectrum benefits of vitamin C as nature intended with Living Vitamin C.


    How does vitamin C benefit my health?

    Years of scientific research prove that vitamin C influences almost every body function. For example, our formula:

    Aids in the production of collagen, the foundation of all connective tissue.

    Acts as a strong antioxidant to slow aging and help maintain good health.

    Promotes hormone synthesis which helps regulate stress and energy levels.

    Speeds wound healing.

    Promotes iron absorption, which facilitates cellular nutrition necessary for proper blood cell development.

    Promotes normal cell replication in the gastrointestinal tract.

    Why do I need to take a vitamin C supplement?

    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient not manufactured in the body, so it must be obtained through diet or supplements. Our hectic lifestyles can make eating healthy amounts of vitamin C-rich foods like fresh fruits and vegetables a challenge. But with a whole food supplement like Living Vitamin C, you're sure to get the level of vitamin C you need.

    How do the support nutrients in your Living Vitamin C
    supplement help me?

    Besides being a rich source of vitamin C, our Living Vitamin C supplement contains a myriad of support nutrients that contribute to overall good health.

    Probiotics are designed to promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms, also called good bacteria, in the gastrointestinal tract. Healthy human intestines contain billions of microorganisms; both good and bad. The good bacteria in the intestine are considered an integral part of your immune system.

    Many people are unaware that daily exposure to the environment and even certain habits considered healthy; like taking antibiotics, drinking chlorinated water and using antibacterial soap, often kill these good bacteria essential for health.

    Antioxidants are organic substances found in fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants deactivate free radicals that, if allowed to persist, can cause cell damage.

    Enzymes carry out every chemical reaction in your body, including breaking down nutrients so your body can digest and use them. Without enzymes, even the most balanced natural foods diet would be worthless. Although enzymes are present in all raw foods, they become devitalized in cooked or highly processed foods. Even steaming or microwaving vegetables kills enzymes. When the body receives foods deficient in enzymes, it increases its white blood cells as a defense mechanism, which can weaken the immune system.

    What makes your Living Vitamin C supplement better than
    other Vitamin C supplements?

    Unlike supplements that deliver vitamin C in only one nutrient form, Living Vitamin C is a whole food blend formulated to deliver all the benefits of vitamin C found in nature.

    Living Vitamin C contains:
    Certified organic orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime citrus blend that includes the fruit, pulp, peel and seeds.

    Organic cereal grass juices to alkalinize the body and provide important vitamin, mineral and enzyme co-factors.

    Organic trace minerals in their ionic forms to support vitamin C absorption and usage.

    Antioxidant blend of whole raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, prune, and grape fruits, skins and seeds.

    Additionally, of the many vitamin C supplements on the market, our Living Vitamin C is the only one that creates Homeostatic Nutrient complexes using a process called Poten-Zyme. This proprietary technique unlocks the nutritional effectiveness of whole foods to deliver body ready nutrients where you need them most.

    Whole foods formulation that delivers the benefits of calcium found in nature Made with a combination of sea vegetables and green foods, two of the best sources of calcium

    Contains all the co-factors necessary for proper absorption

    Contains Homeostatic Nutrient complexes to deliver nutrients in their body ready forms

    Living Calcium is an advanced, whole food formula made with sea vegetables and green foods; nature's best sources of calcium. Regular calcium supplements are single-nutrient forms that, when separated from their co-factors, often fail to provide an adequate level of nutrition. Living Calcium on the other hand, contains vitamin C, vitamin D, iodine, zinc, magnesium, boron, copper and manganese; all the co-factors required for optimal absorption and utilization.

    Living Calcium is the only calcium supplement on the market that creates Homeostatic Nutrient complexes using a process called Poten-Zyme . This proprietary technique delivers Living

    Calcium in a form that has been predigested and combined with lactic acid to make it more absorbable by the body.

    Get more from your daily dose of calcium with Living Calcium.


    What does calcium do and why do I need it for good health?

    You probably already know calcium helps maintain strong bones and teeth, but you may not be aware of its many other heath benefits. Calcium: Alkalinizes the body to ensure a healthy pH range. Maintains the integrity of skin and tissues. Helps the body maintain normal blood pressure. Helps support healthy cholesterol and triglycerides. Regulates the entry of nutrients into the body's cells.

    Why should I take a calcium supplement?

    Calcium is an "essential" nutrient, which means it is not produced by the body and must be acquired through diet or supplements. If you don't get enough calcium, your body will drain it from your bones, which can make them weak and prone to osteoporosis.

    What are Homeostatic Nutrient complexes?

    Homeostatic Nutrient complexes are vitamins and minerals that have been liberated and made more potent with probiotic microorganisms and their by-products. The process of turning ordinary vitamins and minerals into living "whole food" structures enables them to be more efficiently utilized by our bodies.

    What makes Living Calcium better than other calcium supplements?

    In contrast to single nutrient calcium supplements, Living Calcium contains all the co-factors necessary for proper assimilation: vitamin C, vitamin D, iodine, zinc, magnesium, boron, copper and manganese. The magnesium and other minerals in Living Calcium are not isolated, but are part of a blend of 70 beneficial ionic ocean and fulvic acid-based minerals.

    Additionally, of the many calcium supplements on the market, Living Calcium is the only one that creates Homeostatic Nutrient complexes using a process called Poten-Zyme. This proprietary technique unlocks the nutritional effectiveness of whole foods to deliver body ready nutrients where you need them most.

    High in sugar digesting enzymes to handle large quantities of sugars and starches

    Contains up to 20 times more lipase for fat digestion than the leading brands

    100% Vegetarian Product

    The State of our Digestion

    According to the Surgeon General's report on nutrition and health, 8 out ot 10 leading causes of death in the United States are diet related. Digestive problems comprise the number one health problem in North America. Digestive complaints including everything from hemorrhoids to colon cancer, result in more time lost at work, school, and play than any other health related problem. Many of these digestive problems were rare or non-existent less than a century ago. How can we get back to the health of our ancestors? Consume enzyme rich foods and "live" enzyme supplements.

    What Are Enzymes?

    Enzymes are catalysts in the body, protein-like substances which help maintain the tissues, orchestrate the many functions of the body, and digestfood. Enzymes can be broken down into three categories: metabolic enzymes, digestive enzymes and food enzymes. Metabolic enzymes spark many of the reactions inside the cells of our body. Our organs, tissues and cells would not work without the help and direction of metabolic enzymes. Digestive enzymes secreted by our own pancreas break down the nutrients contained in the foods we eat. Food enzymes are supplied to us through the foods we eat. Food enzymes help to break down the foods before our digestive enzymes are called upon. Food enzymes are destroyed at temperatures above 118 degrees. All cooked and processed foods are devoid of food enzymes.

    Why Do We Need Enzymes?

    Enzymes are perhaps our most important nutrients. Enzymes are responsible for nearly every facet of life and health. When we eat raw foods, we consume the enzymes in the foods. The foods are then digested easily by the body. When we eat cooked or processed foods, the body must create the enzymes necessary to digest the cooked foods. This constant need for enzymes depletes our store of enzymes, strains the body and causes the pancreas to enlarge. Without enzymes, we're dead. In fact, Dr. Edward Howell, the groundbreaking physician who devoted his life to the study of enzymes, has stated in his classic work, Food Enzymes for Health and Longevity, "After we have attained full mature growth, there is a slow and gradual decrease in the enzyme content of our bodies. When the enzyme content becomes so low that metabolism can't proceed at a proper level, death overtakes us." If one does not consume proper levels of enzymes from foods or supplements the following symptoms may occur: excessive gas and bloating (particularly after meals), diarrhea and/or constipation, heartburn, low energy, acne, arthritis, allergies, insomnia, high cholesterol and many more. Once enzymes have completed their appointed task they are destroyed. For life to continue you must have a constant enzyme supply which requires continual replacement of enzymes. The best way to assure your body gets the adequate amount of enzymes every day is to consume a diet high in "live," raw and fermented foods and to consume a high potency, broad spectrum digestive enzyme supplement such as OmegaZyme.

    OmegaZyme contains the following ingredients:

    Protease Blend- 65,000 HUT Blend of 5 proteolytic enzymes including peptidase which aid in the digestion and utilization of dietary proteins. Helps deliver the specific nutrients necessary for muscle and tissue repair, as well as for vibrant immune system function.

    Amylase- 20,000 DU digests starch and carbohydrates. Acts in concert with Protease to stimulate immune system function. Acts in association with lipase to digest fragments of viruses and reduce inflammation and infections.

    Lipase- 3,000 FCCLU digests fats, thereby aiding in weight control, maintaining and enhancing cardiovascular health, and helping maintain proper gall bladder function.

    Glucoamylase- breaks down carbohydrates, specifically polysaccharides.

    Malt Diastase (Maltase)- digests maltose, malt and grain sugars. May help relieve environmental sensitivities and allergies.

    Invertase(Sucrase)- digests sugars. Beneficial in helping prevent gastrointestinal problems and discomfort.

    Alpha-Galactosidase- aids in the digestion of difficult to digest foods such as beans, legumes and cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower.

    Lactase- 750 ALU digests the milk sugar lactose. Extremely useful for individuals suffering from lactose intolerance. May be beneficial for those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders in which a high percentage are adversely effected by dairy products.

    Cellulase- 1,500 CU digests fiber cellulose into smaller units which include D-glucose. Helps remedy digestive problems such as malabsorption. Cellulase is a very important enzyme because the human body cannot produce it on its own.

    Xylanase- breaks down the sugar xylose.

    Pectinase- breaks down carbohydrates such as pectin (found in many fruits).

    Hemicellulase- breaks down carbohydrates called hemi-celluloses, which are found in plant foods.

    Mannanase- digest the sugar known as mannose.

    Phytase- breaks down carbohydrates, specifically phytates (phytic acid), present in many difficult to digest grains and beans. Especially useful for those suffering from serious bowel disorders which result in an inability to handle phytates from soy and gluten from wheat, oats, rye and barley Phytase may increase mineral absorption and the bioavailability of iron, zinc, calcium, and magnesium.

    Beta-Glucanase- breaks down polysaccharides and fibers known as beta glucans.

    Arabinosidase- digests the sugar arabinose.

    Bromelain- an enzyme from the stem of pineapples, breaks down protein and fights inflammation and reduces swelling. May speed the recovery of injuries and swelling resulting from athletics, childbirth and surgery.

    Papain- similar to the chymotrypsin, a protein digesting enzyme produced by the body. Used to treat chronic diarrhea and celiac disease. Treats gastrointestinal discomfort due to intestinal parasites.

    Poten-Zyme Ginger Extract- one of the most potent herbal digestive aids. Contains extremely potent protein digesting enzymes. Frequently used to treat nausea and motion sickness.

    Poten-Zyme Tumeric Extract- popular Indian spice which is commonly used to improve digestion and reduce stomach discomfort.

    Poten-Zyme Barley Grass Extract- one of nature's richest sources of alkaline forming minerals and antioxidant enzymes. Provides the mineral co-factors necessary to enhance the functions of the enzymes.

    Poten-Zyme Cat's Claw Extract- called the "opener of the way" by a physician who treated hundreds of people suffering from digestive problems with this powerful herb. Cat's claw has been used for hundreds of years by native Peruvians as a treatment for digestive problems, urinary tract infections and arthritis.

    OmegaZyme delivery Systems

    OmegaZyme comes in two convenient delivery systems, UltraZorbe caplets and powder. UltraZorbe caplets are specially designed to preserve the "live" enzymes and probiotics contained in OmegaZyme and to deliver them in the most effective time frame possible. UltraZorbe caplets are produced without the use of heat. OmegaZyme comes with a convenient scoop and can be mixed in any room temperature liquid or sprinkled directly onto room temperature or cold food.

    A great test to experience the effectiveness of digestive enzymes is to penform the oatmeal test. Simply take 1/2 cup of cooked oatmeal or other cooked cereal and allow it to cool to room temperature. Add 1 caplet (crushed) or scoop of OmegaZyme and begin to stir. Watch as the enzymes break down the starches, protein and fiber contained in the oatmeal. Seeing is believing!

    Suggested Protocol

    Take 1-4 caplets or scoops of OmegaZyme1~with meals and snacks. The quantity of enzymes used should reflect the amount of cooked or processed food consumed. OmegaZyme1~ may be taken on an empty stomach to aid the body's detoxification process. If you're at all skeptical about the effectiveness of these digestive enzymes, we challenge you to take 2-4 caplets or scoops of OmegaZyme~ with each meal for about 3-5 days; then, stop taking them altogether for 1-2 days. You'll immediately notice the contrast as your body goes back to what you will now realize was your earlier sub-par state of poor digestion and low energy.

    Cod liver oil has always been an important part of the diet of the Icelandic people. They instinctively recognized the importance of vitamin A, vitamin D and the essential omega-3 fatty acids found in cod liver oil.
    Cod liver oil was used as a panacea for everything that affected their health and
    daily activities.

    Today, Icelanders live longer than any other people on earth. They have less heart disease and high blood pressure than any other culture in the world. They also have the lowest infant mortality rate. Icelandic women give birth to healthy babies with well developed immune systems, nervous systems and optimal brain and eye functions.

    Regular use of cod liver oil has supported the overall health of the Icelandic people for thousands of years. Now, this same product is available to support your overall health.

    Why is this cod liver oil taken from Iceland?

    Cod liver oil has always been an important part of the Icelandic diet. Both life insurance data and genetic research have shown that Iceland is now topping the charts for longevity, with Icelanders experiencing less heart disease and high blood pressure and the lowest infant mortality rate of any culture in the world. Many scientists believe this is largely due to the regular consumption of cod liver oil, which typically begins soon after birth.

    How is Olde World Icelandic Cod Liver Oil
    different from other cod liver oils?

    Other cod liver oils remove the naturally occurring vitamins A and D during the deodorizing process and then supplement the finished product with synthetic forms. Olde World Icelandic Cod Liver Oil is undeodorized, unbleached and contains only the naturally occurring vitamins A and D.

    Goat's milk is the most widely consumed milk in the world.
    GOATEIN goats are not fed pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones or antIbiotic.

    Many people who cannot drink cow's milk can tolerate goat's milk protein.

    GOATEIN contains all the essential amino acids for optimal health

    GOATEIN is minimally processed to preserve its original composition.

    GOATEIN contains 14 straIns of problotics and is abundant in digestive enzymes


    Proteins are the building blocks of human life, essential for normal growth. Protein is 90 percent of the dry weight of blood, 80 percent of muscles, and 70 percent of the skin. Proteins provide the building blocks for connective tissue and are the primary constituents of enzymes, hormones and antibodies. They encompass many important chemicals including immunoglobulins and enzymes. In short, protein is the basic stuff of muscles, skin, bones, hair, heart, teeth, blood, brains, skin and the zillion biochemical activities going on in our bodies every minute. When we fail to consume adequate amounts of protein, the blood and tissues can become either too acidic or too alkaline. Lack of dietary protein can retard growth in children, and in adults can be a contributing factor in chronic fatigue, depression, slow wound healing, and decreased resistance to infection.

    Proteins contain approximately 22 amino acids, eight of which are essential because the body cannot produce them. Therefore, they must be obtained from our food. The sulfur-containing amino acids methionine, cystine, and cysteine are particularly important for the health of the brain and nervous system. The amino acid cysteine, which is the one most severely damaged by processing, is possibly the most important anti-catabolic amino acid. Clinical evidence suggests that supplementing the diet with bioavailable cystine and other amino acids contained in specially processed milk proteins can help build blood quality and even detoxify harmful chemicals. One daily serving of Goatein provides over 45mg of Cysteine.


    Animal protein is the only source of complete protein available. Animal sources of protein such as Goatein have many advantages over vegetarian sources such as soy because vegetarian sources are typically low in one or more of the essential amino acids even when overall protein content is high. There is now some controversy regarding the safety of soy. Soy protein is thought by some researchers to be high in mineral-blocking phytates and thyroid-depressing phytoestrogens. Potent enzyme inhibitors in soy may even depress growth.


    GOATElN IS PURE. Goatein is the highest quality protein powder available. It is produced from goat's milk that contains no antibiotics or female growth hormones. Most commercially available dairy protein powders are produced from animals given antibiotics and/or BrST that can provide the user with unacceptable amounts of female hormones. Many vegetable protein powders are made from non-organic or GMO sources and may contain chemical residues.


    The smaller molecules of goat's milk are closer in size and composition to human milk, making it easier to digest. Goat's milk protein is also substantially less allergenic than cow's milk protein in susceptible individuals. AddItionally, Goatein is partially pre-digested through a lactic acid fermentation process to make it even more bio-available while virtually eliminating it's lactose content. Research has shown that proteins from milk that have been pre-digested by lacto-fermentation are absorbed more efficienty as those of non-fermented milk. During the fermentation process, many digestive enzymes are created that aid in the assimilation of food nutrients. In THE MILK BOOK, William Campbell Douglass, M.D. states that the protein contained in cultured (lacto fermented) dairy products is the very highest quality available for human consumption.


    Most other milk protein powders are made from cow's milk and, even though they claim to be minimally processed, may use several invasive processing steps, including heating at high temperatures. These methods denature many important amino acids and DESTROY enzymes and beneficial bacteria. Research suggests that processing whey with heat and acid (i.e. ion-exchange) results in the loss of several key amino adds including Cysteine 73-77%, Threonine 35-45%, Serine 18-30%, and Lysine 19-20%. Because Goatein is processed without the use of acid or excessive heat, the amino acids, enzymes and beneficial bacteria remain in their natural form.


    These building blocks of proteins are crucial for proper immune system function. Because Goatein~ is processed without excessive heat or acids, it contains biologically active Cystine, Glycine, and Glutamic Acid in tripeptide form. The combination of these three amino acids forms Glutathione. Glutathione functions as a principal antioxidant, scavenging free radicals and environmental toxins such as lipid peroxides that can damage and destroy healthy cells. When the body suffers from oxidative stress, supplies of Glutathione diminish. Oxidative stress affects the nervous, immune and endocrine systems and may be an underlying cause of fatigue. Glutathione is extremely important for the proper functioning of the immune system through its critical role in the growth and replication of lymphocytes, the cells that mediate specific immunity. Goatein!m also provides immunoproteins such as albumin, lactalbumin, and lactoferin that have been shown to stimulate immune response.


    Research indicates consuming whey protein by itself can cause too rapid an absorption of amino acids. These amino acids are then used for energy production instead of tissue building.

    We are convinced that a combination of both whey protein and milk proteins is superior, containing a much higher concentration of Glutamine (20% of protein content). GOATEIN contains a favorable ratio of Potassium to Sodium, important for a leaner, less bloated look.

    and FREE FORM.

    The amino acids in Goatein are in their L configuration, completely assimilable by the body. This makes Goatein an extremely important supplement for premature babies, people with compromised digestion, the elderly, and those suffering from malnutrition and muscle wasting. Dietary peptides have been shown to suppress abnormal immune cell activity and minimize the damaging side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. The amino acid L tryptophane can be effective in cases of insomnia and depression. Glutamine, an important amino acids for building lean body mass and immune health, is not effectively absorbed when taken in combination with other amino acids due to competitive absorption. However, when the glutamine is bonded with a peptide, as it is in Goatein it's absorbed many hundreds of times better. The glutamine contained in Goatein aids in the body's ability to repair itself after intense workouts or injury.


    These include enzymes of protease, amylase, lipase and lactase. These enzymes contribute to the health of the digestive tract and can increase the utilization of Goatein as well as other dairy foods. Goatein is the only protein powder available that contains 14 super strains of probiotics designed to be resistant to heat, cold, chlorine, fluorine, stomach acid and extremes of pH. Each serving of Goatein contains probiotics in a base of lacto-fermented goat's milk protein. Fermentation by lactic acid bacteria creates biologically active lactic acid that plays a major role in energy production and fat burning. This lactic acid is also essential for proper pH balance of the gastrointestinal tract and other bodily tissue. Many of the healthiest and longest living people in the world have consumed lacto-fermented dairy products and attribute their longevity to this marvelous food. Research has shown that regular consumption of cultured (lacto-fermented) dairy products lowers cholesterol and protects against bone loss.

    Scientific research makes it very clear that probiotics are of vital necessity and immense benefit to humans. Probiotics not only collectively provide profound health benefits, such as vastly improved digestion and nutrient absorption, but also provide superior protection against the invasion of foreign pathogens and other infectious agents.

    They also:
    Improve digestion and nutrient absorption.

    Protect against invasion of foreign pathogens and other infectious agents.

    Dramatically improve human immune function.

    Protect the body from the potentially devastating effects of accumulated toxins and carcinogenic substances.

    Produce short chain fatty acids that are converted into energy.

    Help protect against unhealthy cholesterol buildup that could lead to cardiovascular disease and even death.

    After intense exercise the immune system is more susceptible to bacteria and viruses. By consuming Goatein after working out you can can help to protect your body from infection by supplying high quality proteins in the form of peptides, probiotics, and enzymes.

    The inclusion of naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes as part of the food itself make Goatein the most highly bio-available protein powder available. Because Goatein is so easily digestible, it is the protein powder of choice for young and old alike

    The 14 strains of beneficial bacteria are: Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Lactobacillus Brevis, Lactobacillus Casei, Lactobacillus Caucasicus, Lactobacillus Deibreuki, Lactobacillus Fermenti, Lactobacillus Lactis, Lactobacillus Plantarum, Lactobacillus Leichmannii, Lactobacillus Helveticus, Bitidobacteria Bifidum, Saccharomyces Boulardil, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, all grown on Goat's Milk Protein.

    Food For Your Immune System

    The following health conditions may be a direct result of immune system dysfunction:

    Frequent Colds and Flu
    Viral Disorders
    Allergies and Asthma
    Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    Chronic Fatigue
    Candida Yeast Overgrowth
    Parasitic Infections
    Multiple Sclerosis

    Rheumatoid Arthritis

    What is RM-1O ®

    For thousands of years people have used herbs to promote healthy immune system function and ward off many diseases. RM-1O is a combination of 10 medicinal mushrooms synergistically balanced with Aloe Vera and Uncaria tomentosa. These unique nutrients have been specifically chosen to feed and nourish the immune system.

    Each of the powerful ingredients in RM-10 have been predigested using the Poten-Zyme process of bio-fermentation creating enhanced absorption and utilization while also providing beneficial probiotics and enzymes.
    RM-10 was formulated by Jordan S. Rubin, C.N.C., for his grandmother who had been diagnosed with metastatic cancer (see testimonial section). Garden of Life believes RM-10 will create a new standard in immune system supplementation.

    Why take RM-10?

    Medicinal mushrooms have been used traditionally for thousands of years and are now being validated by modern science for their remarkable healing potential. Mushrooms and their extracts have been the subject of hundreds of scientific studies which conclusively indicate their tremendous therapeutic value. According to these studies, medicinal mushrooms and their extracts may:

    have powerful immunomodulatory activity and enhance immune system function

    have potent anti-tumor activity and inhibitthe growth of existing tumors

    help lower cholesterol and can prevent and treat cardiovascular disease

    have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties

    protect against harmful effects of radiation

    have applications in treating viral diseasesuch as AIDS

    What is RM-1O?

    Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi): Appearing in ancient Chinese herb texts more than 1500 years ago, this unique herb was considered to be the "mushroom of immortality" and the great protector. Reishi appears to greatly aid in the immune system and have a strong effect against tumors and cancer. A potential treatment for arthritis, it has been further shown to be beneficial to the cardiovascular system.

    Cordyceps sinensis: Commonly used for impotence and fertility, Cordyceps sinensis greatly improves immune system function and strengthen fhe bodies resistance to bacteria and viruses. It has further been used in China as a tonic for the lungs and kidneys to relieve excessive fatigue, anemia, and depression.

    Coriolus Versicolor: Long considered to be a very powerful anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, anti-tumor agent, and immune enhancer. Coriolus versicolor has been helpful in treating and decreasing the recurrence of gastric cancer and significantly inhibits the growth of leukemia cells.

    Lentiinula edodes (Shitake): Extracts from this mushroom have been shown to have positive effects against Type 1 Herpes Simplex virus as well as depressed immune system f unctfrsn, cancer, AIDS, environmental allergies, candida infections, and frequent colds and flu. Shiitake has been used in the Orient for prevention of high blood pressure, controlling cholesterol levels, and is a potent kidney and liver tonic.

    Agaricus blazei: Has amazing immune enhancing effects on the body as well as anti-tumor, anti-viral, and blood sugar lowering properties. It also helps to form the enzyme tyrosinase which is used in the body to synthesize the protein melanin. Melanin gives color to the skin and is a vital component of skin and semen.

    Grifola frondosa (Maitake): In Japan, the Maitake mushroom is called the king of the mushrooms, and many researchers believe that it has anti-tumor effects. In the feudal era of Japan, Maitake was exchanged for its weight in silver by local lords who in tum offered it to the Shogun. Maitake can be used on a daily basis to promote healthy metabolic function and maintain vibrant immunity.

    Hericium erinaceus: Commonly prescribed in traditional Chinese medicine for stomach ailments and for prevention of GI tract cancer. Hericium erinaceus has also been shown effective as an immune enhancer, nerve tonic and it has been shown to aid respiratory system function.

    Poria cocos: This herb is valued because it is easy to assimilate, helps the body shed surplus fluid, and aids in digestion. It is further used to strengthen the spleen and stomach, eliminate phlegm, calm the heart, and lower blood sugar levels.

    Tremella fuciformus: A highly prized health food that is commonly cooked in soups to strengthen the lungs, restore physical vitality, improve mental acuity, and replenish body fluids. It is recommended in China to assist in weakness after child birth, constipation, abnormal menstruation, gastritis, and reduce fever.

    Polyporus umbellatus: In a Chinese clinical study of 146 patients, Polyporus umbellatus was used to reduce the recurrence of bladder cancer by nearly 50%. It has been very useful in the treatment of urinary tract infections and may limit leukemia cell proliferation. lt is also a potent anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, immune enhancer, and assists with lung and respiratory function.

    Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera has been used by nearly every civilization dating back some 6,500 years to the Egyptians. Aloe helps to reduce inflammation involving internal or external effects as well as regulate blood sugar levels. It is a powerful antioxidant, contains anti-bacterial, anti-viral nutrients, and supports the immune system.

    Uncaria tomentosa: Herbal practitioners around the world have used Uncaria tomentosa to treat a variety of conditions including arthritis, AIDS, allergies, dermatological problems, ulcers, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, and conditions involving chronic inflammation. It further helps lower blood pressure, reduces inflammation, and prevents the spread of tumors and viral infection.

    The Poten-ZymeTM Process

    The nutrient dense herbal combination in RM-10, is pre-digested using the proprietary Poten-Zyme process (Poten-tiation by Enzym-atic activation). This proprietary process is an exclusive natural process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic pre-digestion using 14 strains of beneficial micro-organisms within a matrix of carefully selected whole foods. The blo-availability and absorption of nutrients using this unique process may be increased 2-5 times.

    Many people have a difficult time obtaining nourishment from certain foods and herbs. The Poten-Zyme process solves this problem. The Poten-Zyme process creates and liberates valuable compounds within the herbs, including enzymes, antioxidants, beta glucans, phytosterols, and many others.

    The UltraZorbe Caplet Delivery System

    The UltraZorbe caplet delivery system (Ultra-absorption) is a revoltionary technology whereby all nutrients and ingredienta in RM-10 retain their maximum nutritive content, viabilfty and live food and herbal properties.

    The UltraZorb caplet delivery system accomplishes this without the use of heat, animal products, traditional binders, fillers, or excipients. UltraZorbe caplets are designed to provIde rapid disintegration and dissolution, and thus deliver the desired nutrients in the most efficient and effective time frame possible.


    Two years ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. The visible tumors were surgically removed and I underwent no further conventional treatment. My grandson (Jordan Rubin) formulated a special blend of herbs and probiotics for me to take font >(RM-10). He told me that if I took this blend my immune system and digestion should significantly improve. Whatever it was he gave me, boy did it work!

    I have been using RM-10 for about 18 months. I've never felt better in my life. I experience more energy than I ever remember having. I have a general feeling of well being that I have never experienced. As a side note, I have been constipated all of my adult life. I have always required the use of laxatives, which didn't always help. After a few months on the RM-10, I've eliminated the use of my laxatives and have almost perfect elimination. According to my last check up, I am cancer-free. -Rose Menlowe Age 79

    Arthritis and Inflammation

    According to the American Arthritis Society, the term arthritis refers to more than one hundred separate conditions. More than 40 million Americans (one in six) have inflammatory conditions and by the year 2020 the Center for Disease Control and Prevention projects that the prevalence of arthritis will increase to 60 million Americans (almost 20% of the population). Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in America with women being affected more than men. Gout, an inflammatory disease that causes sudden and severe attacks of pain, tenderness, and swelling in joints affects more than one million Americans.

    The traditional treatment for arthritis involves the use of pain killers such as NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as aspirin, Motrin, Feldene, Naprosyn, or COX-2 inhibitors such as Celebrex . These medications may temporarily help to relieve the symptoms of pain but do nothing to eliminate or combat the disease itself. In fact, studies show that continual use of NSAIDs and prescription medications can actually accelerate the deterioration of the joints and worsen arthritis or other inflammatory conditions.

    The following conditions involve high levels of inflammation.

    Back Pain Osteoarthritis Scleroderma Lupus Sports Injuries Rheumatoid Arthritis Asthma Psoriasis Fibromyalgia Bursitis Allergies Crohns' and Colitis

    What's In FYI?

    Systemic Enzyme Blend:

    Protease Blend
    a blend of protein digesting enzymes including 5 different proteases which distinguish themselves for their ability to function in a wide range of pH environments and temperature conditions. These enzymes have shown to possess valuable therapeutic actions as anti-inflammatory agents.

    a powerful protein digesting enzyme from pineapple contains valuable anti-inflammatory and therapeutic agents. Bromelain is helpful in reducing the pain, swelling, and tenderness associated with injury.

    is a well balanced mixture of protein digesting enzymes isolated from Papaya. Papain is valuable as an anti-inflammatory agent as well as the ability to reduce the tissue irritation and joint inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis.

    a potent fat digesting enzyme helpful for chronic inflammatory conditions and joint pain and swelling.

    a carbohydrate digesting enzyme may be beneficial for treating joint immobility.

    an enzyme that breaks down plant fiber is known for its use in alleviating chronic pain syndromes.

    Chicken Collagen Type I
    contains anti-inflammatory properties and has been clinically demonstrated to decrease pain and discomfort stemming from joint disorders. The compounds inherent in Chicken Collagen Type II provide the structural support of healthy joints by promoting new cartilage synthesis and by reducing oxidative damage to the joints. Chicken Collagen Type II contains naturally occurring chondroiton and glucosamine sulfates which help to bring water, shape, and cushioning back to the cartilage.

    Wild Oregano Concentrate
    contains 31 known anti-inflammatories, 28 antioxidants and four known potent COX-2 inhibitors. With its 31 anti-inflammatories, oregano has more of these compounds than any other herb in the USDA Phytochemical database.

    Poten-Zyme Ginger Extract
    Ginger has multiple constituents that inhibit COX-2 inflammation. It balances production of inflammatory prostaglandins PGE3 and PG12. Ginger's constituents safely restore healthy platelet function by inhibiting the formation of an eicosanoid group called thromboxanes (one of the main functions of aspirin.) Ginger reduces prostaglandins that sensitize pain receptors at nerve endings, thereby demonstrating powerful analgesic (or pain reducing) effects. Ginger has 180 times more protein- digesting enzymes than papaya. Ginger is commonly used as a natural treatment for ulcers.

    Poten-Zyme Cat's Claw Extract
    has been extensively used by Peruvian Ashaninka Indians to treat a wide range of illnesses including asthma, urinary tract inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, rheumatism, and bone pain. Cat's Claw contains potent phytochemicals called Quinovic Acid Glycosides.

    Poten-Zyme Turmeric Extract
    an Indian spice that demonstrates powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is a potent antioxidant. It is widely used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for the stimulation of beneficial liver action to relieve digestive inflammation.

    Poten-Zyme Alfalfa Extract
    Provides over 90 biologically active minerals as well as eight unique enzymes. Alfalfa helps to alkalize the body which may reduce acidic deposits associated with inflammatory conditions. The alfalfa contained in FYI is a full spectrum extract of the alfalfa leaf and is therefore safe for use by those with autoimmune conditions.

    Rhododendron Caucasicum Extract
    known as the snow rose grows high in the Caucasian mountains of the Republic of Georgia. The smaller antioxidant molecules found in Rhododendron extract showed higher antioxidant values, compared to extracts containing OPCs such as pycnogenol and grape seed extract. The cardio-protective properties of Rhododendron caucasicum includes elimination of capillary fragility and hemorrhoid bleeding, as well as regulating blood pressure. Rhododendron has proven to be effective in ameliorating the symptoms associated with gout. In a clinical trial of over 170 volunteers with severe gout, the extract proved effective in just a few hours by relieving the painful symptoms associated with gout.

    Aminaria and Ulva Extract
    edible brown and green sea vegetables which contain large amounts of protein, vitamins, and polysaccharides. These sea vegetables contain Glucuronic Acid which is an important component of chondroitin sulfate. They also contain appreciable amounts of proline and ascorbic acid required for collagen synthesis.

    Bayberry Bark Extract
    contains large amounts of myricetin, a potent antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. Myricetin is a COX-1, COX-2 and 5-LOX inhibitor. It has been used for centuries for the treatment of infections such as dysentery and was reported to be an effective fever reducer.

    have been shown to modulate the immune response in autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and prevent damage caused by inflammation. Plant sterols have been shown to positively affect allergic rhinitis, sinusitis and asthma.

    The Poten-Zyme Process

    The Poten-Zyme process (Poten-tiation by enzymatic activation) is an exclusive natural process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic pre-digestion using 14 strains of beneficial microorganisms to extract the precious phytochemicals contained in FYI". Many extraction processes isolate one or two important compounds at the expense of others. With Poten-Zyme the user gets the benefits of all of the naturally occurring beneficial compounds contained within each plant. The Poten-Zyme process creates and liberates valuable compounds within the herbs, including enzymes, antioxidants, polysaccharides, phytosterols and many others.

    The UltraZorbe Caplet Delivery System

    The UltraZorbe caplet delivery system (Ultra-absorption) is a revolutionary technology whereby all nutrients and ingredients in FYI retain their maximum nutritive content, viability, and "live" food and herbal properties. The Ultra-Zorbe" caplet delivery system accomplishes this without the use of heat, animal products, traditional binders, fillers, or excipients.

    What is an Adaptogen?

    For thousands of years, people all around the world have been using adaptogens to help their bodies deal with the effects of stress. The Chinese described adaptogens as "superior" plants completely harmless to the body while exerting profound supportive effects. Adaptogens work by activating the basic and vital functions of the body to help it remain healthy under unfavorable conditions, making the body able to "adapt". Ancient cultures revered adaptogenic herbs for their balancing properties, but the need for such plants has never been so great as today. Adaptogens have been scientifically proven through clinical and laboratory studies for more than 40 years, with their actions well documented, and their safety confirmed. To be considered a true adaptogen, a plant must conform to the following criteria:

    1. The plant must be non-toxic and totally harmless to the body.

    2. It must allow the continuing normal physiological functioning of the individual.

    3. The action it exerts must be nonspecific and should maintain normal body functions despite a wide range of onslaughts to the
    body (i.e. stress).

    4. It should normalize body functions irrespective of existing pathological conditions.

    What's In Clear Energy?

    Siberian Ginseng is a potent tonic herb that has developed a tremendous reputation as a premier supplement for its energy promoting benefits and recuperative properties. Siberian Ginseng increases respiratory power by helping the body to better utilize and assimilate oxygen. A long time favorite among Soviet athletes, it has the rare ability to improve both short term and long term energy.

    American Ginseng is known to promote energy, adaptability, and heighten alertness. American Ginseng is a cooling herb known to replenish fluids and tonify the lungs and is highly regarded for its ability to increase endurance.

    Reishi called the "herb of good fortune," has been used for its memory enhancing properties for centuries throughout Asia. This herb is believed to help calm the mind, strengthen the nerves, and sharpen concentration and focus. Reishi is commonly prescribed in Japan for memory loss and insomnia.

    Cordyceps is one of the primary herbal substances used in tonic herbalism as an anti-aging agent and for the purposes of rejuvination. Cordyceps is an extremely effective and powerful life-enhancing agent, ranking right up there with Ginseng. Cordyceps is used to strengthen the body and mind at a fundamental level. It is widely used to strengthen the primary Kidney functions, which include sexual functions, brainpower, structural integrity and healing ability.

    Astragalas, traditionally called "the great protector", is known for it's amazing strengthening effects, particularly to the musculature. It is therefore tremendously beneficial to those who tend to be physically active and require abundant physical energy.

    Codonopsis is believed to have an action similar to Ginseng, but milder. Codonopsis is extremely effective at relieving fatigue. Its blood-building quality makes it especially good for people who are weakened due to illness.

    Schizandra is used to sharpen concentration, improve memory, and increase alertness. Various tests have shown that moderate therapeutic doses can improve activities requiring concentration, fine coordination, sensitivity and endurance. Chinese women have historically held Schizandra in very high favor, because of its beauty-enhancing qualities. It has been used for centuries by both men and women to promote vigor and alertness.

    Polygonum is used for maintaining youthfulness and for providing overall strength to the body. It has also been shown to strengthen tendons, ligaments, bones, and helps prevent premature aging.

    Lycium Fruit has long been used as a longevity herb. It is further believed to fortify the system against disease, and provide sustained energy.

    Licorice is the most commonly used herb in Chinese herbalism. It helps to increase vital energy and build strong muscle tissue. Licorice is often used as a detoxifier to cleanse the blood and liver.

    Rhodiola Rosea According to noted plant biochemist Dr. Zakir Ramazanov, "Rhodiola rosea is a much more powerful anti-stress, positive mood and memory enhancing formula than other phyto-medicines, including St. John's wort, Ginkgo biloba, and Panax ginseng. Dr. L. Utkin, Russian botanist and nutritionist, performed some of the first research on Rhodiola. In addition to the plant's ability to increase physical endurance, he discovered that the plant increased sexual performance.

    Maca This so called "Peruvian Ginseng" is from South America and is rapidly gaining attention in the United States for its success in supporting energy, stamina, libido and with hormone balancing for men and women. In traditional Andean culture, maca is used for male impotence, menopausal symptoms, menstrual disorders and as an aphrodisiac. In Inca society, maca was used, like ginseng, to impart kalpa, or strength. It acts as an energizer and anti-stress agent.

    Rhaponticum Carthamoides is an adaptogen with unique properties. Both men and women using Rhaponticum have reported increased gains is strength, endurance, lean body mass and a simultaneous loss in body fat. A study of people performing physical labor revealed that when Siberian Ginseng, Rhaponticum Carthamoides and Rhodiola Rosea were administered, all test subjects showed an improvement in their general, physical and mental states.

    The Poten-Zyme Process

    The Poten-Zyme process (Poten-tiation by enzymatic activation) is an exclusive natural process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic pre-digestion using 14 strains of beneficial microorganisms to extract the precious phytochemicals contained in Clear Energy. Many extraction processes isolate one or two important compounds at the expense of others. With Poten-Zyme the user gets the benefits of all of the naturally occurring beneficial compounds contained within each plant. The Poten-Zyme process creates and liberates valuable compounds within the herbs, including enzymes, antioxidants, polysaccharides, phytosterols and many others.

    The UltraZorbe Caplet Delivery System

    The UltraZorbe caplet delivery system (Ultra-absorption) is a revolutionary technology whereby all nutrients and ingredients in Clear Energy retain their maximum nutritive content, viability, and "live" food and herbal properties. The UltraZorbe caplet delivery system accomplishes this without the use of heat, animal products, traditional binders, fillers, or excipients. UltraZorbe caplets are designed to provide rapid disintegration and dissolution, and thus deliver the desired nutrients in the most efficient and effective time frame possible.

    The 100-Day Cultivation Period

    When you embark on an adaptogen program, it is traditionally believed that the initial stage of cultivation takes approximately 100 days. This "setup program" will accomplish all kinds of major tasks, including detoxification, purification of body tissues, balancing the major functions, establishing a fundamental level of protection and stabilizing the nervous system. It is important to maintain consistency for the full 100 days. However, you are likely to notice many positive changes in how you feel and look long before the first hundred day period has run its course.

    Abundant in Mucilagenous Soluble Fiber

    Excellent Source of Pectin, Cellulose, Lignans and Mucilage

    Supplies Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids

    The Critical Role of Dietary Fiber

    The role of dietary fiber has increasingly grown in prominence since as early as 1860 with the advent of the technology for refining sugar, followed soon thereafter by improved milling methods that began removing the fiber from flour. Improvements in rail and sea transport along with refrigeration, enabled the distribution of these foods to a worldwide marketplace. Prosperous, more industrialized countries were predominantly the beneficiaries of these new wonder foods. Simultaneously, the populations of these countries began suffering en masse with digestive and bowel disorders. In the recent 50 years as three generations have come to pass, the prevalence of these and multiple related disorders have reached a critical peak. Foodstuffs have become so de-natured that they are almost unrecognizable from their whole, original state. Current statistics are undeniably revealing:

    Up to 100 million Americans suffer from varied forms of digestive diseases with an estimated total in lost wages and medical costs of over $50 billion per year. Approximately 200,000 people miss work every day due to these disorders.
    Health statistics show that more Americans are hospitalized with digestive tract disorders than any other group of diseases. These medical costs tower at more than $20 billion per year.

    The annual sales of prescription and over the counter drug products for digestion related maladies has grown to $2.5 billion per year, increasing at a steady rate of 10% over the last decade, contributing substantially to our overall health care costs. These include laxatives, antacids, anti-hemorrhoidal and anti-diarrheal preparations.

    What is Super Seed ?

    Super Seed is an extraordinary whole food formula that supplies your body with a highly usable, nutrient dense, vegetarian source of dietary fiber. Super Seed is a whole food blend of certified organic and chemical free seeds, sprouted grains and legumes, abundant in mucilaginous soluble fiber, and rich in essential fatty acids and lignans.

    Helps to maintain resilience and lubrication of the cells by binding with protein and cholesterol to form living membranes that hold body cells together

    What's in Super Seed ?

    FLAX SEED: Nature's most abundant vegetarian source of Omega 3 fatty acids, vitally important for streng1 the heart and arterial walls, lowering cholesterol, reducing high blood pressure, diminishing insulin requirement acuity, brain development, adrenal function and sperm formulation. Flax Seed is the richest known source of "lignans", a constituent of fiber that promotes anti-tumoral, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant effects in the body.

    CHIA SEED: A staple food used by the Indians of the southwest and Mexico, Chia is known for its remarkat capacity to absorb more than 12 times its weight in water. Chia Seeds allow the body to regulate more efficiE body fluids, while maintaining the electrolyte balance. The high oil content of the Chia Seed makes it a bountiful source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids.

    SPROUTED QUINOA (keen-wa): Consumed for thousands of years as an indigenous food of South America, Quinoa's origins are truly ancient. Greatly revered by the Inca civilization as the "mother grain", Quinoa is touted in modern day as a perfect food, due to its impressive nutritional profile. It is considered to be a complete protein comprising the full essential amino acid spectrum. It contains more protein than any other grain; an average of 16.2 percent, with some varieties more than 20 percent. Its amino acid balance is similar to that of milk. Quinoa is high in lysine, methionine and cystine, constituents of protein that are often very low in other grains. In addition to protein, its unique profile supplies carbohydrates, natural sugars, unsaturated oil (especially high in linoleic acid), vitamins and minerals, and is an excellent source of vital dietary fiber.

    SPROUTED AMARANTH: Once a staple food of the pre-Columbian Aztecs, Amaranth first found its way to the Americas from China, and eventually reaching Mexico as early as 2000 BC. Primarily thought of and used in recipes as a grain, Amaranth is actually a fruit whose bushy plant grows 5-7 feet, with a distinguishing intense red or magenta flower head displaying itself in exquisite feathery plumes. Each plant is capable of producing 40,000 - 60,000 edible seeds. Amaranth is notably high in protein, 15-18 percent, and contains exceptional amounts of calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorous and vitamins A, C and E. The germ of the Amaranth Seed is high in linoleic rich unsaturated oil. Most notable is its impressive fiber content, which is 3 times higher than wheat.

    PUMPKIN SEED: Dating back over 7,000 years to its origins in Central America, Pumpkin Seeds are known to be a potent healing food ir urinary tract and prostate health. They are an excellent fiber source high in phosphorous, iron, calcium, vitamin A, folic acid, niacin and essential fatty acids.
    SUNFLOWER SEED: Native to North America, the Sunflower was first grown and used by the American Indians. Sunflower Seeds have ar impressive nutrient profile, containing significant amounts of calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. In addition, they are an excellent source of protein, the B vitamins, carotenoids and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Most notably, Sunflower Seeds are higher in dietary fiber than all other seeds and nuts.

    SESAME SEED: A traditional food in oriental and Middle Eastern cultures, Sesame Seeds have been used medicinally to relieve constipation, stiff joints, backaches, weak knees and is considered an overall strengthening food. High in protein, niacin, calcium, copper, iron and significantly in magnesium - Sesame Seeds also contain substantial unsaturated fat and dietary fiber.

    LEGUME FIBER BLEND: A high fiber blend of Garbanzo, Red Lentil, Kidney and Adzuki Beans, rich in naturally occurring B-complex vitamins, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, folic acid and omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. Legumes are an excellent vegetarian source of protein and contain significant amounts of dietary fiber.

    MILLET: The chief cereal grain for millions of people in India, China, Africa, Russia and throughout Europe - Millet is most noted for its high silica content, an important component for the nervous system, tendons, skin, nails and hair. It proudly contains no gluten, significant for those on a gluten-free regime, and is abundantly rich in digestible dietary fiber.

    BUCKWHEAT: Not actually a grain, but the seed of an herb, Buckwheat is a dietary staple in the hardy northern climates of Russia and Brittany. It contains substantial amounts of lysine, calcium, vitamin E, the entire B vitamin complex, and is especially noted for its high leatrille (vitamin B17) content. As well, it provides a good source of dietary fiber.

    CINNAMON: A potent harmonizer with considerable medicinal value, Cinnamon stimulates digestion and exhibits antiseptic properties. Studies have shown that it strengthens insulin activity, helping the body process sugars more efficiently.

    The Poten-Zyme Process

    Each of the nutrient dense ingredients in Super Seedm utilizes a natural proprietary process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic pre-digestion called "Poten-Zyme " (Poten-tiation by Enzym-atic activation). This exclusive delivery system employs 14 strains of beneficial probiotic micro-organisms within a whole food matrix, thereby liberating valuable medicinal compounds, and enhancing bio-availability and absorption of healing properties as much as 2-5 times. Note: The Poten-Zymem process makes the seeds and legumes used in Super Seed significantly easier to digest; by neutralizing phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, and breaking down difficult to digest complex sugars, thus reducing the flatulence usually associated with beans and seeds.

    A Weight Management Solution and More

    Excessive weight and obesity lead to some 280,000 preventable deaths in the United States each year. Type II Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure are only a few of the serious complications resulting from being overweight. Obesity related disability accounts for approximately 7 percent of health care costs. I would add that these are older figures and the problem seems to be growing world-wide.

    Fuco Thin offers a natural, non-addictive and time honored weight management solution. It contains no stimulants that have been found to cause potentially harmful side effects such as rapid heart rate, anxiety, insomnia and hypertension.

    The strength of the science behind fucoThin's ability to promote fat loss is the main reason for its growth growth. The science supports this; however, the science also supports some additional, lesser known, physical effects.

    This summary will outline the most important of these more obscure, but no less important, beneficial health effects.

    FucoThin contains two (2) main ingredients that work synergistically to improve human health.

    Fucoxanthin is a sea vegetable extract and a relative of Vitamin A. Sea vegetables convey many health benefits to those who consume them. Asian cultures that eat a large amount of sea vegetables are among the healthiest on Earth.

    Pomegranate Seed Oil is a type of fat essential for good health. So essential that it is in a group of fats called Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's ). These fats are responsible for helping to make cells in your body healthy.

    FucoThin has antioxidant/anti-aging properties.

    It has a high ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity ) value, a measure of anti-oxidant strength, which supports normal cellular aging and contributes to the antioxidant pool in the body along with the many other anti-aging compounds in the body.

    FucoThin helps maintain normal blood pressure.

    FucoThin has been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure from the placebo group to the study group. In this study systolic pressure dropped 12.5% and diastolic pressure dropped 10.2%

    FucoThin supports normal Inflammation and C-reactive protein (CRP)

    CRP is one of the body's non-specific markers for how much inflammation is present. Inflammation is a component of many unhealthy conditions and FucoThin has been shown to lower CRP levels.

    CRP levels dropped 43 % from an unhealthy 6.3 mg/L to a normal 3.6 mg/L (below 4.9 mg/L is normal) from the placebo group to the study group.

    FucoThin helps support normal liver function.

    The liver is the body's major cellular cleansing organ. If the liver is damaged then certain chemical markers rise in the blood to abnormal levels. These markers include compounds named GGT, AST and ALT

    The normal levels of GGT are less than 65 iu/L, ALT less than 55 iu/L. and AST less than 40 iu/L. FucoThin has been shown to support healthy liver function by reducing GGT by 37% (49 iu/L to 31 iu/L). It has been shown to support healthy liver function by reducing ALT by 49% (51 iu/L to 26 iu/L). FucoThin has been shown to support healthy liver function by reducing AST by 45% (53 iu/L to 29 iu/L).

    FucoThin helps to establish healthier blood lipids and liver fat.

    High fat levels in the liver and blood equate to reduced health of the body overall. FucoThin has been shown in clinical studies to reduce the percentage of liver fat by 37% (15.1 % to 9.4%).

    Triglycerides are a blood fat that should be below 149 mg/dl. FucoThin has been shown in clinical studies to reduce the level of triglycerides by 17 % (191mg/dl to 158 mg/dl)

    FucoThin is a unique combination of 2 major ingredients used primarily for its positive impact on body fat and weight and as we can see from the above information the health benefits go far beyond simple weight loss. Positive effects are seen on cellular oxidation, blood pressure, inflammation, liver function and lipid levels.

    Helps to Restore Natural Alkaline pH

    -Assists In Reducing Acidity

    -Soothing to the Stomach and Digestive Tract

    -Contains Alkalinizing Minerals from Goat's Milk

    -"Live" Stomach Soothe Enzyme Blend

    -Helps to Reduce Heartburn and Acid Indigestion

    -Provides more than 20 Naturally Occurring Minerals

    -33:1 Organic Vegetable Juice Concentrates

    -Utilizes Exclusive PotenZyme process

    Formulated for those occasions when you experience heartburn, acid indigestion and upper GI distress, Acid Defense is a combination of super alkalinizing ingredients designed to rapidly restore your body's proper pH, and provide reinforcement for alkaline reserves in the body.
    An excellent source of electrolytes, Acid Defense contains a blend of live enzymes, alkalinizing minerals, and probiotics from goat's milk whey. In addition, the certified organic vegetable juice concentrates enhance liver and gall bladder functions, and aid in fat metabolism.

    Acid/Alkaline and Your Body's pH

    When your body becomes too acidic, it will attempt to compensate by retaining alkaline salts in the bloodstream to offset the increase of tissue acidity. Since your body can only tolerate a small imbalance in blood pH, it will rob alkaline components from other places including your body's precious alkaline reserves in an effort to restore a proper pH balance. This can result in heartburn, digestive distress, stomach upset, fatigue, and a multitude of varying symptoms.
    Commercial antacid products only alleviate the symptoms by blocking the production of acid and can often produce unwanted side effects. They alter your body's ability to absorb protein and calcium which can then create the need for a calcium supplement to compensate.

    The ingredients in Acid Defense however, contain naturally occurring alkalinizing components such as calcium and magnesium that reestablish a balanced, healthy, system-wide pH. It is safe for daily usage with no known side effects.

    The Important Role of Sodium & Potassium

    If it were not for the presence of sodium making the tissue in the stomach highly alkaline, the lining would be destroyed by the hydrochloric acid normally produced in the stomach. The stomach, intestines, joints, and ligaments are in constant need of natural food-source sodium such as that present in the goat mineral matrix in Acid Defense. Naturally occurring sodium is not to be confused with the sodium from common table salt which is processed with extreme heat using many chemical and bleaching agents.

    A Necessary and Beneficial Combination:

    Potassium neutralizes acid wastes, and in combination with sodium, maintains a healthy acid/alkaline balance. Potassium and sodium are nearly always found together in the body and perform many of the same functions. Second only to breathing and maintaining a heartbeat the most important metabolic function our body performs is to maintain a balanced pH.

    The Foundation of Health

    We believe that the very foundation of health begins with the proliferation of beneficial flora in the gut. The probiotics, live enzymes, and alkalinizing minerals naturally occurring in goat's milk whey, along with organic vegetable juice concentrates and our powerful Stomach Soothe N-imes Blend - together produce a soothing effect, maintain a balanced pH, and promote the growth of healthy flora throughout the intestines.

    Ancient Wisdom - Fermentation

    The whole food ingredients in Acid Defense, are lacto-fermented and enzymatically pre-digested, utilizing a proprietary natural process called Poten-Zyme (Potentiation by Enzymatic activation). This ancient method of bio-fermentation incorporates 14 strains of beneficial micro-organisms and their enzymes into the foods, gently breaking them down into their most basic elements.

    Fermentation creates and liberates valuable medicinal compounds within the foods including enzymes, antioxidants, beta glucans, phytosterols, and other phytonutrients - greatly enhancing the nutritional value while making it easier to digest. This assures more complete absorption and delivery of nutrients at the cellular level.

    Dear Fellow Health Professionals:
    We live in the land of plenty, yet there are alarming levels of nutritional depletion all around us. In our highly stressed, under-nourished, quantity versus quality society, the use of drugs, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, supplements and chemically laden, highly processed, high fat, high sugar content foods is on the rise. These substances create deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids and enzymes. The essential building blocks needed for a healthy body are missing or lacking in such a diet.

    This depletion can lead to a depressed immune system and metabolic and nutritional imbalances. Eventually, a chronically diseased state occurs. Most physicians I have spoken to feel overwhelmed by the amount of people they see everyday and are frustrated by the fact that many are just not getting better, despite their best efforts and the use of varied pharmaceutical drugs.

    The simplicity and purity of a whole foods diet would do much to allay many of the health problems we are faced with today. Simply eating fresh, unprocessed, chemically free, live, enzyme rich whole foods would do much to provide the body with the needed building blocks to create vibrant health. Not everyone has their own garden to make this possible. After years of research I have narrowed down the choices and have found "concentrated whole food" products that have the most important phyto-nutrients still intact. Your patients will find them easy to take because they are in a good-tasting, convenient, powder or caplet form. In this packet of information you will discover how these products provide the needed vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, proteins, enzymes, simple sugars, immune boosters and friendly bacteria for the intestinal tract. These nutrients work synergistically to build, replace and renew the body in a quick and easy way.

    All of these products have two to five times greater bioavailability because the plants go through a lacto-fermentation and enzymatic pre-digestion process. They are designed for rapid disintegration and dissolution, delivering nutrients in the most effective time frame while maintaining their maximum nutritive content, viability and live-enzyme properties. There are no harmful side effects when using whole foods nor are there adverse reactions which can be experienced with pharmaceutical drugs. You may find that many of the pharmaceutical drugs you are recommending for your clients can be gradually reduced or discontinued entirely. If not, at least the detrimental effects of such drugs will be reduced. I trust in the integrity of the companies manufacturing these products. The solid scientific base from which they are operating is evident in the enclosed literature. They do not use any inexpensive fillers or additives in their products, something many so called "health products" utilize to cut costs.

    I have over 33 years of research, experience and practice in allopathic, traditional and complimentary medicine. My experience also comes to me from the personal life-style choices I have made. I use a variety of phyto-therapies, including herbs, essential oils and nutrition with my own clients. I believe that if you were to encourage your clients to use these "whole food solutions" for just one month you would see how well they work. Anyone who wants to try these products can be in touch with me directly or I can stock a supply at your office.

    I am commited in supporting anyone who is open to lifestyle change and actively seeking a state of well-being, so I sell the products mentioned in my web pages at less than retail price to my own clients. Please let me know if I can be of service to you or any of your clients.

    To your health,
    Angela Rosa, R.N., L.M.T.
