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.
