Best Professional Grade,
100% Whole Food-Based Vitamin and Mineral Formula
That I Can Recommend
Over the past
few years, I have received numerous requests from friends
and colleagues to provide a food-based nutritional supplement
that is on par with the quality and effectiveness of our
super green food formula, but in a convenient tablet form.
At first, I was
hesitant to provide such a product, as I couldn't imagine
that a vitamin and mineral formula in tablet form could
provide as many health benefits as our super green food
My early research
confirmed my doubts, as I discovered that the great majority
of professional lines that call themselves "whole food"
multivitamins are not actually 100% whole food.
Many of us are
familiar with juice products that carry a label of "Real
Juice" but are really a combination of small amounts
of real juice plus lots of sugar and water. Regrettably,
many manufacturers of nutritional supplements do the same
thing - they use the words "Whole Food" on their
labels, but their products often contain a combination of
whole foods plus conventional isolated nutrients. And research
from every corner of our globe clearly indicates that isolated
vitamins and minerals are far less effective at promoting
health than vitamins and minerals that are from whole foods.
I was close to
throwing in the towel with my search when I happened upon
a company in New England that has been specializing in the
production of 100% whole food vitamins and minerals since
the early 1970's. As I researched their methods of growing
and harvesting foods and then extracting the nutrients from
these foods for optimal bio-availability, I started to get
excited because I realized that their expertise with and
dedication to producing 100% whole food nutritional supplements
matched the standards that I was looking for.
my research, I began test trials with their most comprehensive
vitamin and mineral formula, both on myself, and with select
family members, clients, and colleagues. I also sought out
and spoke with naturopathic, chiropractic, and osteopathic
physicians who had significant track records with the multi-vitamin
and mineral product that I was interested in. Without exception,
the feedback on this formula was overwhelmingly positive
- I estimate that it was on par with the initial feedback
that I received on our green food formula when I did test
trials with our greens back in 2003.
most frequently reported health benefits from taking our
100% whole food vitamin and mineral formula were:
feeling of better blood circulation throughout arms
of good digestion and comfortable bowel movements
and healthier looking skin
feeling of being more emotionally centered and calm
- several people and practitioners specifically reported
that this formula really seemed to help with chronic
This wide range
of health benefits that were reported did not surprise me,
as the foods and botanicals in our formula were chosen for
their collective ability to nourish and cleanse
every organ system in your body.
are the key features of our Comprehensive Vitamin and Mineral
100% whole foods and botanicals
from whole plants and cold milled - it's 100% raw
food and nutrient integrity
free of herbicides & pesticides, synthetic vitamins
& minerals, GMOs, preservatives, binders, dairy,
corn, and soy
Just like our
green food and cherry powder products, our 100% whole food
vitamin and mineral formula is sealed in an amber
glass jar for optimal nutrient preservation; I
insist on amber glass jars for any nutritional supplements
that I use and recommend, as plastic containers may allow
oxygen to seep in over time, resulting in degradation of
nutrient value. Make no mistake about it: if a food product
comes in a plastic container, it's most likely not the highest
quality product of its type. This is one of the reasons
why all high quality food products that are stored in containers
are stored in dark glass containers, like
the best brands of extra-virgin olive oil.

bran, oat brain fiber, lecithin, grains, and other inexpensive
fillers. We feel that a professional-grade, 100% whole
food vitamin and mineral formula should be made with
the most nutrient-dense plants and botanicals available,
not with less expensive ingredients that you are better
off buying and eating on their own.

efficient utilization of all of the other nutrients

astragalus, eleuthero root, ginkgo leaf, and milk thistle

is not designed for young children. It is intended for
use by adult men and women.
If you require
organic certification, this formula is not for you.
While the vast majority of plants and botanical that
make up our formula are organically grown or wild crafted,
in order to keep the cost of this product as affordable
as possible for the general public, we do not pay for
organic certification on our raw ingredients. What we
do pay for is testing that consistently shows that our
raw materials and finished product are completely free
of herbicides and pesticides.
on Dosage and Bio-availability:
A good general
dose for most people is a total of six tablets per day
- three in the morning, and three in the afternoon or
studies indicate that the tablets in our formula break
down within the time that food exits the stomach and
enters the small intestine - approximately 30 to 45
minutes. These studies ensure that the nutrients in
our formula are maximally available for absorption into
your bloodstream via your small intestine.

it should be noted that our formula contains vitamin
K, iron, and iodine, which may interfere with certain
prescription drugs - be sure to check with your physician

professional grade, 100% whole food vitamin and mineral

between $69 and $74. Through a special agreement with our
formulator, it's available through our Web site (my chiropractic

of Bottles (180 Tablets Each)
are we able to offer this professional grade, 100% whole
food supplement at such a deeply discounted price? First,
the size of our readership allows us to get the best bulk
rates possible. Second, in keeping with our goal to provide
the highest quality natural health resources to the general
public, the profit margin on this product is modest - we
have no interest in charging the suggested retail price
of $69 to $74 per bottle so that we can afford to pay affiliates
or just make a big profit.
Note: As is the case with all of the products that
we use and recommend through our web site, if you choose
to purchase our Comprehensive Vitamin and Mineral Formula,
I recommend that you order more than one item at a time.
This is because UPS (for orders in the States) and USPS
(for orders everywhere else) charge one main fee to ship
any package, and then add only modest increments for each
additional item. Ordering more than one item at a time will
significantly reduce your per-item shipping and handling
charge. This principle holds true with any combination
of items that you order from our recommended products section.
For example, if you order a bottle of our cherry powder
or a package of Goji berries along with our vitamin and
mineral formula, then you will save significant shipping
dollars per item.
If you have never
tried any of our products and would just like to give one
of them a try, then it makes sense to order only one item
initially to make sure that you find it to be as effective
as we do.

From People Who Use Our 100% Whole Food Vitamin and Mineral
used this product and found it to be very beneficial. I

Facts Label for Our 100% Whole Food Vitamin and Mineral
There is legislation that is being proposed now on what
the parts per million gluten level should be to allow for
a gluten-free label. This discussion ranges from 10 to 17
ppm. Our 100% whole food formula checks in at about 13,
so I can't say if it's gluten-free according to the law.
For all practical purposes, I have found that people who
are gluten-intolerant do fine with this formula - this includes
people who are hypersensitive to even trace amounts of gluten.
