Part II - TRANSCEND - Cellular Health and Ortho-Molecular Research
Are You in the Vitamin Club of Survivors - More than likely you are not
Would you like to be in the top 10% of people who take really good vitamins (Natural Biology‘s Daily Protocol), know what you are doing, and get incredible results. You can join the Survivors Club of Vitamins, who not only survive but thrive - and Vitamin Club Survivors TRANSCEND… TRANSCEND beyond the hype of the vitamin marketing machine!
Only when you understand the full reality of what it takes can you really thrive. Remember in Part One Survivors are realist who get the facts and tools they need to survive. To survive in the vitamin world you need to use ortho-molecularly designed supplements. (While we call just about everything vitamins, they are actually supplements, and the best of all supplements are extracts and organic micro-nutrients - not synthetic). FACT: Did you know your body can actually produce all the vitamins it needs from food and minerals except Vitamin C . I'll talk about this in a later section of TRANSCEND.
Natural Biology formulates supplements based on the ortho-molecular research model of medicine developed by two time Nobel-Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling. He believed as I do, that if you changed the environment of your body’s chemistry at the cellular level (using natural micro-nutrients provided by nature) you could find balance and the key to health excellence. He set forth a plethora of paradigms for doing this which our company subscribes to. After eight years of results we have seen consistent results with our customers who follow our protocols.
To put it in layman’s terms, the practice of Ortho-Molecular is to saturate your cells with micro-nutrients (antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, Omega 3, etc) that improved cellular function. It forces your cells to react proactively to a dense and rich source of energy! Ultimately, all healthy cellular activity is about good energy and communication - sort of like good relationships. Ortho-molecular creates a good relationship between what you give your cells and how they respond in kind!
Your Systems & Organs Are Cells
Every organ makes up your body systems and everything starts with a cell. Your brain, digestive system, skin, hair, cardiovascular system, immune system, hormones, etc. – all are made from cells. Healthy cells make healthy people. Healthy cells provide plenty of energy for physical and mental function. For example, brain fog is a result of low brain energy!
Mitochondria is the Powerhouse of Every Cell
A large part, if not the most important part, of a healthy cell is the how healthy is the mitochondria. The mitochondria is the powerhouse of every cell. If it is functioning at peak capacity then your cells operate much more efficiently in providing energy and fighting off foreign invaders. Feeling tired lately, guess what – for some reason, your cells are tired. Take away what is making your cells tired and also give them what they need, and you will suddenly find you have energy. Sometimes this is a relatively quick fix. Other times it takes some time – from weeks to months to years depending how bad down the cellular spiral you have fallen. The promise however is you can change your natural biology and TRANSCEND. Just like you can damage your DNA from bad habits like smoking, there is a growing body of evidence that says you can improve your DNA .
What Actually is Ortho-Molecular Formulation
Ortho-molecular seeks to energize your mind and body by restoring the optimum ecological environment for your
body's cells by correcting imbalances or deficiencies using 100%
pure and natural vitamins, minerals, amino acids, extracts,
phyto-nutrients, glyco-nutrients, probiotics, adaptogens, enzymes, and antioxidants. It starts with the purest and most bio-active micro-nutrient. Anything less is a traditional supplement which may or may not be based on any valid scientific research.
Orthomolecular is staying true to the ingredients and picking the best ingredients for efficacy. Efficacy simply means how your body absorbs and utilizes a micro-nutrient. That is certainly true, efficacy is very important and a great starting point, but that is the point, it is the starting point and not the end game. Orthomolecular supplementing consist of the following parts put together:
- Ingredients: 100% Pure & Natural Micro-Nutrients and/or Organic or Inorganic Ingredients tested under GMP rules with the highest active ingredient components. These will have the highest efficacy both in the lab and in human trails.
- Synergy: The best orthomolecular formulas are based on synergy. Synergy means the sum of all the ingredients is greater than the individual parts. In other words, the formula matters. Synergy is accomplished by providing the right potency and purity of every ingredient in an effective formula - based on meta analysis and research.
- Research: Since Dr. Linus Pauling developed Orthomolecular several major developments have added an entire layer upon the foundation. There are today thousands of university studies with some landmark studies that have enlighten our knowledge exponentially. We have made considerable progress in reversing cellular aging, mitochondria and energy health, SRTI gene and resveratrol research, Omega 3 health, immune system health, and antioxidants benefits.
- Formulation: Today there is a great divide between high quality micro-nutrients and the landslide of cheap Chinese micro-nutrients that dominate the marketplace. Good formulas are comprehensive and complete. Most supplements are cost driven whereas orthomolecular formulas are research driven.
- Progressive: Natural Biology believes good formulations change as research and better ingredients come along.
Making Ortho-Molecular Easy
Natural Biology has designed a DAILY PROTOCOL that consist of EVEREST Earth & Sea Formula, Antarctic Pure Krill Oil, and Okinawa Coral Calcium (Marine Grade with the perfect 2:1 Calcium/Magnesium ratio processed without heat). The DAILY PROTOCOL delivers to your cells and in particularly your mitochondria exactly what it needs. The same micro-nutrients work equally well for men and women. This is another marketing type - women’s multivitamins and men’s multivitamins. There are some supplements only for men and only for women but nothing in the daily category.
In Part III we’ll discuss why Natural Biology's DAILY PROTOCOL works - what research it is based on, and in Part IV we’ll discuss the specific ingredients that make up this comprehensive and complete approach to supplementing. In Part V I’ll talk more about the business of supplements, the new GMPs, current supplement legislation, and how you can pick better products. In Part VI we'll discuss ingredients, labels, and supplement companies. Here’s the truth. Ultimately you are going to have to use your new found knowledge, make more informed choices, and trust a company for your supplement health.
