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 wondrous in its nutritional offering and health benefits than your typical multi vitamin. Achieving Maximum Health With The 3-3-9 Plan
We like to use the 3-3-9 plan to explain some of the functional aspects of Living Multi. 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 it''s 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—helps 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. :
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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. :
7. 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.
8. 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. :
9. 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.
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.
"From our research and what we''ve gathered, this will be the first multi-nutrient study on humans that looks at multi-nutrient formulas for what they are designed to do,"notes co-investigator Lee B. Dexter, Microbiologist, Food Technologist, Research Scientist and President of Dexter and Associates, a technology and compliance consulting firm in Austin, Texas. "If nearly 70 percent of our country takes a vitamin and mineral or a multi-nutrient of some kind, it is for two reasons: to increase energy and performance and prevent diseases that are created by our poor dietary habits, imbalanced lifestyle and environmental stresses. What was really shocking to me when we first contemplated the Living Multi™ clinical studies, is that when you look at the peer- reviewed publications that are out there, there is a shocking paucity of studies that have examined whether multiple vitamin and mineral formulas do what they''re supposed to do. And, so, this is truly a premiere study. Living Multi™—Join the Healthy Living Revolution.
"People take multiple vitamin and mineral formulas because they believe it''s 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''s 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."
