Because we Care - Part III

How Do I Choose a Vitamin Supplment?

Look for 100% natural whole food vitamins. Whole food
vitamins are absorbed, used and affect the body just as
natural foods would. Whole foods and whole food complexes
are entire composites, not fractions of vitamins.
Synthetic or fractionated vitamins are only fragments of
the whole vitamin. For example, alpha-tocopherol is only
one part of the vitamin E family; it is missing gammatocopherol,
and the other tocopherols and tocotrienols,
which make up a complete vitamin E.
Fractionating, or pulling apart the constituents that
make up a food changes that food into a non-food.
These non-food fractions are often unrecognizable to the
body, and some can actually create drug-like reactions.
In many cases, these fractions can do more harm than
good, because they are missing some of their components
or cofactors required to function properly in the
body. Because these nutrient cofactors are usually missing
from a supplement, most supplements will actually
“rob” the body of the nutrient cofactors required for
proper functioning, which deprives you of the nutrient
factors you already had in storage! These nutrients could
have been used to repair damaged cells, make new
cells, prevent disease and provide you with the energy
you need to feel and look younger.
Besides being only fragments of the whole vitamin,
many synthetic vitamins were never part of a food at
all. Synthetic vitamins are often created chemically from
carbon sources such as coal tar. Look for names of
foods you recognize such as green pepper, orange peel,
rose hips, acerola cherry, alfalfa, or wild yam rather
than chemical names of nutrients such as pantothenic
acid, thiamin mononitrate, pyridoxine hydrochloride,
calcium pantothenate, ascorbic acid or pteroylglutamic
acid. All labels of truly NATURAL food concentrate supplements
should indicate the exact food source from
which the vitamin is obtained.

How to Choose a Mineral Supplement
Look for Albion amino acid chelated minerals. Amino
acid chelated minerals are more bioavailable than any
other type of mineral. Bioavailability refers to how available
a mineral element is for use in the body. Here is
where mineral supplements vary widely. While some
supplements have a high trace mineral content, those
minerals are not “chelated” and so are not absorbable
and useable in the body. Through chelation, an amino
acid claws onto, or binds to, a mineral. This enables
that mineral to be absorbed through the gut wall.
Albion Laboratories is the only company that holds a
patent on this process. There are other chelation
processes and companies claiming to use chelated minerals.
However, only the chelation process used by
Albion Laboratories is effective. It is the only process
that involves bonding an amino acid to a mineral in the
same way nature does it and is the only way to produce
this natural amino acid-mineral complex. You can recognize
chelated minerals by their suffix (chelate,
chelazome or chelavite) on the label rather than terms
such as oxide, chloride, acetate, sulfate or carbonate.

How to Choose an Antioxidant Supplement
Look for a complete antioxidant. A complete antioxidant
will contain more than one antioxidant nutrient. The
most common antioxidants are vitamin C, vitamin E,
beta-carotene and selenium. These single nutrients have
excellent antioxidant properties, but taken alone they
are not nearly as effective as when taken together or
when combined with other more powerful antioxidants
such as pine bark and grape seed extract. Interestingly,
the body already contains the most potent and powerful
antioxidant available: super oxide dismutase (SOD).
Because SOD is destroyed in the digestive system, it
cannot be absorbed if taken orally. However, research
has shown that providing the precursor nutrients (copper,
zinc and manganese) that form the “building blocks”
of SOD in the correct ratios, the body can produce even
more of its own SOD. SOD is up to 100 times more
powerful than any current single antioxidant known to
man. A truly complete antioxidant will contain a combination
of pine bark and/or grape seed extract, chelated
antioxidant minerals, whole food antioxidant vitamins
and a SOD Precursor System (copper, zinc and manganese).

Because we Care - Part II, Choosing the right thing for you

How to Choose Your Supplement
Store shelves are flooded with an endless variety of supplements:
single herbs, herbal combinations, individual
vitamins, “complete” multivitamins, minerals, and ultra
trace minerals.
So how do you choose? This can be answered in
two simple statements. Choose a supplement that will:
1) supply only the nutrients your body needs and
2) supply the nutrients in a form that can be used by
the cells of your body. A supplement is of no use to
you if the cells of your body can’t use it. Follow the
guidelines below and you should have no trouble
choosing the supplement that will give you the best
results and provide you with the highest quality ingredients
that can be used by your body.

1. Be sure it is something the body needs.
Always ask yourself, “Do I really need this?” These
needs should be met by a low dose, natural whole-food
supplement containing the correct balance of nutrients.
Although each nutrient has its own specific function in
the body, nutrients tend to work together synergistically.
They help one another. And because nutrients work
together, they need to be taken in a balanced formula,
not just in isolation. You should take appropriate
amounts in correct proportion to one another to get the
most out of them. It is rare for an individual to need a
single-nutrient supplement or a supplement that contains
stimulants, hormones or hormone precursors.
Under normal circumstances, the body should be able
to make adequate amounts of hormones when provided
with adequate nutrition.
If the supplement contains high doses of only one
nutrient, stimulants (caffeine, ephedra, guarana, or ma
huang), hormones (e.g. growth hormone, testosterone,
estrogen, progesterone) or hormone precursors
(androsteinedione), you probably don’t need it. The
most common needs are multi-vitamin, multi-mineral,
antioxidants, flora and enzymes.

2. Be sure the supplement supplies nutrients that the body can use.
This means the ingredients of the supplement must be
both absorbable and useable. A supplement is of no use
to you if the cells of your body can’t use it. Use the following
guidelines to ensure that the supplement will be
absorbed and used by the body.
• Look for supplements in capsule form. The nutrients
in capsules are more available to the body than
tablets. Tablets often have binding agents and a protective
coating added, which make it difficult for the
body to absorb the nutrients. Even if the tablet dissolves,
the nutrients in the tablet are often inactive.
The processing techniques used to put nutrients into
tablet form require extreme temperatures and/or
pressures to compress the ingredients, which destroy
the vitamins, enzymes and food complexes rendering
them useless to the body. Capsules are created under
much milder conditions allowing the nutrients to stay
in their original form and remain available to the
body.
• Don’t play the milligram game. It makes no difference
how much of a nutrient is contained in a
supplement if it isn’t absorbed and if it isn’t in a form
that can be used by the body. Avoid supplements that
play the numbers game and advertise large amounts
(milligrams) of nutrients. Guaranteeing the ingredients
are available to the cells of the body is more important
than how much of a nutrient is listed on a
supplement label. A rock contains large amounts (in
milligrams) of a variety of minerals, but those minerals
are not available for use by the body if you eat
the rock. To be sure the nutrients in your supplement
are in a usable form, choose whole food vitamins,
amino acid chelated minerals, plant enzymes and stabilized
probiotics.
(See details below).
• Look for supplements that ensure cellular
delivery. Cellular delivery is the key to true nutrition.
If a nutrient cannot reach the cells that need it, it is
useless. To achieve cellular delivery, a nutrient delivery
system must be included as part of the
supplement. An effective nutrient delivery system will
include the specific enzymes that are required for a
nutrient to be absorbed and delivered to the cells of
the body. The delivery system should also include the
necessary nutrient cofactors and minerals required for
those enzymes to function optimally. Look for phrases
such as “guaranteed nutrient delivery” , “guaranteed
cellular delivery” , or “assured cellular delivery” on
the label.

Because we care, Part I - decision times

Identify What It Is You Really Need
• Nutrients tend to work together synergistically; more
than one is usually needed.
• Always take appropriate amounts in correct proportion
to one another.
• Most common nutrient needs are multi-vitamin,
multi-mineral, antioxidants, flora and enzymes.
Ensure That Your Supplementation
is Really Supplying Your Body Nutrients
• Look for supplements in capsule form. Tablets often
use binding agents and have a protective coating
which makes absorption difficult and may render
them ineffective.
• Avoid supplments that boast big numbers and advertise
large amounts (milligrams) of nutrients. Quality
of nutrients, such as whole food vitamins, and plant
enzymes, are more important than the number of
milligrams.
• Look for supplments that ensure cellular delivery. If
a nutrient cannot reach the affected or malnourished
area, it’s practically worthless.
How Do I Choose a Vitamin Supplment?
• Look for 100% natural whole food vitamins.
How Do I Choose a Mineral Supplment?
• Look for Albion amino acid chelated minerals.
Albion Labs is the only company that holds the
patent on the amino acid chelation process.
How Do I Choose
an Antioxidant Supplment?
• Look for an antioxidant that contains more
than one nutrient, e.g. pine bark or grape seed
extract, chelated antioxidant minerals and whole
food antioxidants.
• Look for an SOD Precursor System.
How Do I Choose a Probiotic Supplement?
Look for a high-quality stabilized probiotic that does the
following:
• Contains at least eight different strains of good
bacteria (ideal is 12).
• Includes Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. bulgaricus,
L. brevis, L. lactis, L reuteri and Bifidobacterium
longum on the label.
• Displays whole food FOS on the label, e.g. Jerusalem
Artichoke.
• Comes in capsule or powder rather than tablet form.
How Do I Choose an Enzyme Supplement?
Supplemental enzymes should:
• Be specifically created for oral consumption.
• Include all necessary vitamins, minerals
and co-enzymes.
• Be supplied as plant-based food enzymes rather than
animal enzymes.
• Include the full spectrum of enzymes necessary to
break foods down completely.
