Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. But, rarely in western civilizations does dietary calcium intake reach sufficient levels. The need for a quantity of easily assimilated dietary calcium is clearly evident in the prevalence of bone-related disorders.Calphonite™ is a unique, time-tested calcium supplement that contains essential metabolic cofactors: phosphorous, magnesium, and manganese. Our patented process breaks down dicalcium phosphate into its ionic state, making the calcium more soluble and bioavailable. The calcium in Calphonite™ is absorbed 8 times more readily than the calcium in bone meal or regular dicalcium phosphate, permitting assimilation into the bloodstream within an hour and a half. Many Americans over the age of 30 are deficient in hydrochloric acid, and cannot properly digest and assimilate protein- and calcium-rich foods. Our CalphoniteTM provides liquid calcium in a naturally acidic state, providing an immediately bioavailable calcium supplement.
The body needs vitamin D to absorb and metabolize calcium efficiently. We recommend taking #5 Cod Liver Oil to supply natural vitamin D that works to enhance calcium utilization.
Our Wheat Germ Oil capsules contain 73% wheat germ oil, an excellent source of the natural vitamin E complex; and 27% flaxseed oil, a rich source of unsaturated, essential fatty acids: linoleic and linolenic (omega-6 and omega-3). Vitamin E is an essential dietary component that is necessary for antioxidant activity in membranes. It regenerates other cellular antioxidants (i.e. selenium and glutathione) after they become oxidized.* The essential fatty acids also must be obtained in the diet, and are precursors for many hormones and metabolically active compounds. Light, oxygen and high temperatures destroy vitamin E and fatty acids very rapidly. Therefore, the wheat germ and flax seed are pressed at a low temperature in the absence of light and oxygen. The oil is then encapsulated in a bovine gelatin capsule for protection and easy consumption.
The natural vitamin E in our foods is destroyed during cooking and processing due to heat, light, air and freezing. Grains lose up to 80% of their vitamin E content when milled. Commercially processed vegetable oils are low in vitamin E. It has become quite clear that there is a need for natural vitamin E supplementation in our modern diets.
Our Cod Liver Oil is a rich source of natural vitamin A, vitamin D, and the essential fatty acids: linoleic, linolenic, arachidonic, eicosapentaenoic (EPA), and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids. These nutrients are critical for normal metabolism, brain and nerve function, and protecting and building the immune system. EPA and DHA are long-chain, omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water fish and marine mammals that support a healthy cardiovascular system. Nutritionists recommend supplementing the diet with a small amount of cod liver oil, especially during the winter months, to ensure adequate dietary intake of vitamins A and D.*
Vitamin D and calcium are needed together for the proper metabolism of both nutrients. We recommend taking #2 CalphoniteTM, a highly bioavailable, liquid calcium supplement, with Cod Liver Oil.
The active ingredient in Pro-Gest is papain, which is derived from the papaya fruit. Papain is a natural proteolytic enzyme that breaks down proteins and supports a healthy digestive process. Other ingredients include papaya seed meal, Russian black radish, and betaine hydrochloride in a base of dried juice from organically grown beets - the same powder used for our #18 Whole Beet Plant Juice Tablets. The betaine hydrochloride acts to supplement the natural hydrochloric acid in the stomach.* Today´s refined, processed, preserved, and fragmented foods have created deficiencies and chronic conditions that have significantly compromised our digestive systems. Many Americans over the age of 30 are unable to produce sufficient quantities of gastric acid and digestive enzymes to properly digest their foods – resulting in symptoms of indigestion. When foods are improperly digested, important nutrients are unavailable and can result in nutritional deficiencies. Furthermore, undigested food putrefies (proteins rot) and ferments (sugars and starches spoil) creating significant autointoxication (self-poisoning).
Our Detoxificant is a natural and powerful detoxicant derived from bentonite, a mineral-rich volcanic clay. For centuries, native tribes around the world have recognized and benefited from the healing properties of bentonite clay in internal and external applications. In the early 20th century, bentonite clay was used by the British Army in India to treat acute bacterial food poisoning and in China to help treat cholera. We use a special process to refine the raw bentonite clay to remove mica, dirt and other impurities, in order to concentrate the active detoxifying ingredient, montmorillonite ("mont-mor-ill-o-nite"). This procedure places montmorillonite into a colloidal suspension and retains its innate negative charge. These properties allow the powerful adsorption (physical binding) of positively charged substances. (Most metabolic, environmental, and chemical wastes are positively charged.) Montmorillonite possesses the ability to adsorb about 40 times its own weight in positively charged substances present in the alimentary canal. Because montomorillonite has such strong adsorptive properties and is not digested, it tightly binds material to be excreted.*
A perfect accompaniment to #7 Detoxificant is our #9 Intestinal Cleanser. Mixed together in juice, this Cleansing Drink offers the scrubbing and roughage benefits from soluble and insoluble fiber from psyllium, and the detoxification properties of bentonite.
Our Intestinal Cleanser is a finely ground powder of imported psyllium husk and seed. As it contains primarily fiber and no laxative or herbal stimulants, it can be used on a daily basis to assist normal bowel peristalsis. (In contrast, laxatives and herbal preparations stimulate the peristaltic muscles of the bowel, and, if used regularly create a "dependency" and weaken normal colon function.) Psyllium has a hydrophilic (water-loving) action that softens hardened mucous lining the bowel wall, facilitating its elimination. Psyllium can help achieve a high fiber diet, which is so important in maintaining good bowel health, and is now recognized as important to help maintain a healthy cholesterol level already in the normal range. Our #9 Intestinal Cleanser and #7 Detoxificant are ideal companion products, and we recommend they be used together for maximum detoxification via the alimentary canal.*|
Our Herbal Supplement is a blend of cascara sagrada, aloe powder, and licorice root that is intended for relief of occasional constipation. We recommend taking two Herbal Supplement tablets the night before starting a 7 Day Cleansing Program. They can also be used daily while on the Cleanse, but should not be used regularly for an extended period of time (i.e., more than one week). If symptoms of constipation persist, you should consult with your health care provider about addressing the root cause of the constipation. Our experience has shown that people generally get better results from the 7 Day Cleansing Program if they take Herbal Supplements with their final Cleansing Drink of the day. Poor dietary choices, low fluid intake, and lack of exercise are factors that can directly contribute to constipation. Bowel regularity should be achieved and maintained through changes in lifestyle, and not through the use of laxatives.
GreenLife® has been produced since 1953, and is the original and pioneer of organic cereal grass products. It is a 100% vegetable food, containing 92% dried extracted juices of organically grown cereal grasses: barley, oats, rye and wheat (no chemical fertilizers or insecticides are used); and 8% papain, beets and sea kelp. The grasses are cut at the young, rapidly growing stage, when the maximum nutrition is in the blade. The juice is extracted from the grass, chilled, and dried to a powder by a low-heat, vacuum dry process. GreenLife® is made without the use of fillers, binders, or synthetic drying agents, such as maltodextrin (sugar). Every known precaution is taken to preserve the integrity and freshness of the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes naturally present in the dried juice. GreenLife® is bottled in inert amber glass bottles to block light and prevent nutrient reactivity with plastic, and sealed with nitrogen to prevent oxidation. We use cereal grass - not the grain - so there is no gluten, making it is safe for individuals with wheat allergies. GreenLife® is a concentrated product, retaining its natural balance as a complete all-food supplement. It is nontoxic in any consumable amount, and helps balance nutritional deficiencies resulting from consumption of devitalized and processed foods.* GreenLife® is available in tablets (#10) and in powder form (#11).
This GreenLife® product is a powdered form of #10 GreenLife®, without papain. It is 95% organically grown cereal grass juice and 5% dried whole beet plant juice and sea kelp. Because it is powder, it is ideal for individuals with swallowing difficulties, and may be mixed into liquids or simply sprinkled on food.
Our Natural Source Vitamin C tablets contain natural vitamin C derived from dehydrated juice of the acerola berry and wild spanish orange. These food sources provide the vitamin C complex (i.e., bioflavonoids and other synergistic nutrients), factors not present in supplements that use ascorbic acid (chemical form of vitamin C). Our Natural Source Vitamin C has a 100 mg equivalent of ascorbic acid per serving, supplying 110% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). However, the natural synergy of the vitamin C complex and bioflavonoids provides much more powerful antioxidant activity than synthetic vitamin C (ascorbic acid) does alone.*
Vitamin C plays an essential role in the formation of collagen, connective tissue that is required for normal maintenance, growth, repair, and healing of living tissues. Vitamin C also functions as an antioxidant, and protects other antioxidants such as selenoproteins, glutathione, and vitamin E from becoming oxidized (inactivated) in the body.* Since vitamin C is constantly being utilized, it should be taken in small repeated doses throughout the day. Our chewable tablets are ideal for this purpose, providing easy and rapid absorption of the natural vitamin C complex. Because acerola berry and wild spanish orange are naturally sour and bitter, we add powdered blackstrap molasses and honey for a tart but pleasant taste.
The beets used for this product are organically grown. The whole beet (leaves, stems, and root) is juiced, and the extract is vacuum dried at low temperature to retain maximum quantities of the enzymes, vitamins and mineral factors. The drying process does not use fillers, binders, or stabilizers - such as maltodextrin (a sugar that is used as a drying agent). This product, being a concentrate, is nutritionally potent. It takes 200 pounds of beets to make 2 pounds of beet powder. Unlike inorganic sources of iron, the body assimilates iron from the beet root very easily, because iron is found in an organic complex. Beets also contain potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, sulfur, iodine, vitamins and many trace minerals.
