What supplementation is needed?
- Fish Oil
- Vitamin D
- An organic multi-mineral/multi-vitamin
Omega Sufficiency™ is the world's premier EPA/DHA Omega 3 Fish Oil. Each teaspoon or four capsules provides 720-825 mg of EPA and 480-550 mg of DHAOmega 3 essential fatty acids which have been scientifically shown to be acrucial requirement for health and important in the prevention of illnesses such as heart disease, arthritis, ADD, depression, stroke, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, osteoporosis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, eczema, learning and cognitive development problems, and Alzheimer's.
Omega Sufficiency™ is extracted in a licensed pharmaceutical grade facility fromcold water anchovies, herring and sardines that are the purest source of omega 3 Fish Oil. The oil is purified in a non-chemical molecular distillation process that removes all trace amounts of heavy metals, PCBs, organochlorides and organophosphate pesticides resulting in the safest, purest source of EPA/DHA Fish Oil possible. As the oil is purified, it's immediately infused with our natural, proprietary, antioxidant blend consisting of rosemary extract, ascorbyl palmitate and natural mixed tocopherols. This process ensures the greatest oxidation protection possible. There simply is not a better, purer source of EPA/DHA Omega 3 fatty acids in the world.
Our extraction process keeps the Fish Oil in its most natural form possible, this is crucial becausehuman beings are genetically designed to ingest, digest and absorb EPA and DHA essential fatty acids in the form they are found in nature, not in any concentrated form produced by chemical processing. If science and experience have taught us anything. it's that we cannot improve upon nature.
The Western diet is dangerously deficient in Probiotics bacteria. Research shows that we now consume one millionth of the healthy probiotics bacteria that we did before pesticides, herbicides, and industrial farming. We also kill many of our probiotic bacteria with poor nutrition, prescription drugs, and stress. This deficiency of healthy probiotics bacteria is implicated as a casual factor in lack of health and vitality and an alarming number of preventable illnesses from infancy to old age.
The only way to obtain sufficient amounts of healthy probiotics bacteria is through daily supplementation. The dietary sources of probiotics bacteria are virtually unavailable in industrialized society. Our fruits and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides, much of our food is pasteurized or irradiated and we don't consume sufficient amounts of fresh, raw, local foods.
It's essential to supplement with the correct type of probiotics bacteria. The type and source of probiotics that we are designed to benefit from comes from soil, fruit, and vegetables -- not dairy, soy, corn or wheat. The type of probiotics bacteria we require was established thousands of years before humans developed agriculture or consumed dairy, soy, wheat or grains. Probiotic Sufficiency™ contains the correct type of probiotic bacteria.
What does Vitamin D do and why is it so important for wellness and prevention?Before we discuss the evidence regarding Vitamin D sufficiency and health and Vitamin D deficiency and illness, let's first look at the basic science regarding the importance of Vitamin D for human immune function and health. A basic understanding of why Vitamin D is a genetic human requirement for wellness and prevention will allow greater understanding of why Vitamin D supplementation is required.
The innate immune system is the component of our immune system that is genetically programmed to respond to antigens (viruses, bacteria, fungi, and any other threatening non-self invaders). The innate immune system uses what are termed effectors that are genetically coded to respond to antigens or invaders. The most studied of these effectors are named antimicrobial peptides or AMPs. AMPs not only attack the invaders they also trigger tissue repair and activate the adaptive or acquired immune system (the branch of the immune system that creates antibodies to specific antigens after exposure). Recent research has shown that Vitamin D up-regulates the genetic expression of AMPs in immune cells. Vitamin D also plays an important role in controlling the inflammatory response initiated by specialized immune cells called macrophages. A deficiency of Vitamin D means deficient control of inflammation. In the skin, Vitamin D also activates the immune system against antigens.
Research indicates that:
Vitamin D is essential for wellness and prevention. Sufficient levels of Vitamin D are necessary for the proper function of the immune system, for cardiovascular health, for bone growth and repair and for overall wellness and prevention. Those who're deficient in Vitamin D live shorter, more illness plagued lives than those who are sufficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential genetic requirement for human wellness and prevention.
Industrial humans are dangerously deficient in Vitamin D. Humans are genetically designed to get their Vitamin D from daily sunlight. Modern humans living in Northern climates simply cannot get enough sun exposure to produce sufficient levels of Vitamin D. Even those who live in sunny climates rarely, if ever, get enough sun exposure due to clothing and use of sunscreens.
The only way to assure sufficient amounts of Vitamin D is through daily supplementation. Dietary sources of Vitamin D are simply not sufficient. Genetically humans are not designed to get vitamin D from food; we are designed to get it from sun exposure. The only way to get sufficient amounts of Vitamin D is to supplement with Vitamin D3, the same form of vitamin D that is produced by sun exposure.
