Trace Mineral Deficiencies

Trace Mineral Deficiencies make up some of the most deficient nutrients in the human body. This is due to soil depletion food storage and food preparation.

Medical Errors The Third Leading Cause of Death!

Well over 250,000 deaths occur every year due to a variety of medical mistakes. This accounts for about 10% of all U S deaths annually.

Prevention has never been more important than right now with our medical profession in chaos and less and less able to protect us from itself. Exercise a decent diet and the right nutritional supplements could make the difference between staying well and away from the medical system and becoming a victim of it.

Trace Minerals and Healing

Plant sourced trace mineral compounds have shown some amazing abilities to re-balance the internal chemistry of our bodies. Many chronic conditions such as arthritis, chronic inflammation, and a host of other issues have been improved or even eliminated through mineral saturation of the soft tissues and bones of the body with plant sourced bio-electrical trace minerals.

The human body is an electrical organism. Your heart and brain for example function because of the 1.5 volts of electricity your body generates on a constant basis. The body uses minerals, both major and trace, to produce that current that drives the body via the central nervous system. The ability for negatively charged organic trace mineral compounds to support this electrical current can easily be demonstrated as when added to water, an insulating substance, the current flow is immediately restored.

One area of healing that has received a lot of attention is that of accelerating the mending of broken bones and injuries to soft tissues. Work done at New York Hospital in the 1960’s and 70’s established that by applying a direct current to a broken bone, it would heal 40% faster. This was the beginning of our understanding of how electrical potential plays a role in constantly rebuilding and recovering the body from all types of injuries.

Bio-electrical trace minerals from plant sources that bear a negative charge do much the same thing as the application of the direct current mentioned above but do so on a consistent basis as long as they are made available to the living system of the body. We have used these minerals in mega doses with many athletes to accelerate their healing and recovery from injuries with great success. The body will absorb minerals until its storehouse is filled. Once this happens the body simply expels excess minerals with no harmful effects whatsoever, providing that they carry a negative charge. Positively charged minerals on the other hand can build up in the body to excess.

Our plant based bio-electrical trace mineral supplement is sourced from the original Utah mine in use for this purpose since the 1930’s. These minerals are offered through Phoenix Nutritionals under the name Liquid Essentials. We use these as part of a total support program for a wide variety of issues. Check back next week for more information on the best plant based trace minerals and how they can help you.

Should you have questions about the need and use of these minerals in your health please feel free to call our offices at 1-888-454-8464.

Not All Calcium is created equal

Since calcium is the hardest mineral for the body to absorb it is essential to know the source of the calcium in your supplement. I remember a few years ago the “coral calcium” craze. Coral calcium, if it’s not chelated, is nothing more than ground up rocks and very difficult for the body to absorb, especially after age 50. This is because we have started to lose our ability to produce enough natural stomach acids to properly change the pH of the calcium. Since calcium only absorbs in an acid environment, therein lies the problem. Any calcium supplement you choose must be chelated or acidified to help ensure better absorption. Even at that increasing the natural stomach acid production may be helpful to further enhance absorption rates.

Keep in mind too, that calcium should never be taken alone but always with magnesium and several key trace minerals to enhance absorption further. If bone loss or osteoporosis is a concern than it is imperative that your calcium supplement also contain the trace mineral strontium since it has the ability to enhance transport of calcium to bone tissue, increasing bone density over time.

Osteoporosis can be reversed and further bone loss halted but the proper steps must be taken in order to do so. First supply the body with adequate calcium along with the supportive trace minerals necessary to get that calcium back to the bones Secondly be sure to check your digestion and if upper digestive disturbances are present, fix them right away as this will prevent full absorption of any calcium you may take.

At least seven placebo controlled studies have shown that the right form of calcium together with all the co-factors, can not only stop bone loss but actually increase bone density even in senior citizens. This is good news since most of the drugs for this problem can have serious side effects if taken to long. Some of them produce seemingly great results but do so by only masking bone loss so it doesn’t show up on the density tests!! Be sure to watch my video Calcium and Absorption and check back next month for more information about the list of digestive enzymes and how they work for you.

Preventing Bone Loss at Any Age

Osteoporosis or the loss of bone density is so common that it seems almost inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be! Another myth about bone loss is that it only happens to old people. While we are more susceptible to this as we age, it can start happening as early as middle age. Bone loss occurs for one simple reason – a lack of calcium returning to the bones. Every day we lose bone mass even when young but as long as the body is able to replace the calcium necessary to rebuild that bone everything stays even. As we age we tend to lose the ability to transport calcium back to the bones. This may be caused by a variety of factors such as poor digestion, lack of calcium in the diet or in some cases hormonal imbalances.

Calcium is one of the hardest minerals for the body to absorb and it can only be absorbed when it is properly acidified. This is why many supplement manufacturers pre-acidify their calcium and other minerals through a process called chelation. Even with this supportive measure present many of us are so lacking in natural stomach acids that the calcium we absorb is minimal. We often say that if digestive disturbances are present your calcium absorption is probably compromised.

The next factor is to help ensure that the calcium we do absorb is transported back to bone tissue. For this we rely on several key trace minerals such a boron, manganese, copper, zinc, and strontium. In fact strontium is so effective in carrying calcium back, to bone tissues that it has been shown clinically, to increase calcium to bone transport by up to 10-fold.

When looking for a calcium supplement be sure that the minerals are chelated and that all the supportive trace minerals are also present in the formula. In order to get the most benefit from your calcium these trace minerals must be present at the same time as the calcium so taking a formula with all these in one is the logical approach.

Our calcium formula that we are using is the only formula that has been proven to not only stop bone loss but to actually increase bone density by as much as 2% every year. This makes the combination ideal for virtually anyone age 50 or older.

Controlling Inflammation within the Body

There are many forms of inflammation: acute inflammation would be what happens when you drop a brick on your foot, chronic inflammation is ongoing such as with arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and lastly there is silent inflammation, which exists below the body’s pain awareness level so it can be going on and you would be unaware of it. Regardless which form of inflammation you have, if it goes on long enough it will damage living tissues and even contribute to their destruction as in arthritis for an example.

This is why controlling inflammation is so important. While the inflammatory process is protective in acute situations, it can become very destructive should it be present for prolonged periods. Pain and inflammation are so common it has made over the counter pain meds one of the most popular non-prescription drugs available. Just because they are over the counter doesn’t mean that they are without side effects however. Excess use can result in internal bleeding and other blood consistency changes.

These potentially dangerous side effects can oftentimes be avoided by using natural nutrients that also have anti-inflammatory properties but without the blood thinning effects. Once again we find several such nutrients through clinical research and when they are used together the effects are much greater than if we used just one or two alone.

Silent inflammation can slowly damage internal tissues, which is what we see happening in people with diabetes and heart disease for example. Insulin the hormone that regulates blood sugar is highly pro-inflammatory when present to excess as it is in type II diabetes. Much of the damage to arteries and even the heart itself is now thought to be the result of silent inflammation over years of time. This is why we advise all of our clients that come to us to take a natural inflammation support formula if they have almost any chronic ongoing disorder present.

The formula we use is now available from It’s called InflamEze. Check back next week for more information about Digestive Awareness Month, please call Dr Whiting at 1-888-454-8464 anytime.

Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness month and while this disorder remains a mystery, there have been some interesting concepts put forward regarding the causes of this disorder. The work of the late Bernard Rimland here in San Diego focused on holistic approaches to this problem. He was able to establish that most kids with Autism have a serious vitamin B-6 deficiency and through using mega doses of this nutrient, was able to bring them back to near normal function at the very least greatly improved. In the past few months we have had many parents use our Oxy Aloe Formula and many have claimed amazing improvements with their children while others have reported little or no change. We do not fully understand why this is as of yet but when you have a child with this condition, as parents you are willing to try most anything that is safe in the hopes of seeing improvements. Parents who have seen benefits from the Oxy formula have reported greater alertness and better thought processing. We even had one parent tell us that their son’s speech improved dramatically while using the formula.

Certainly if I was in the position of having a child with this disorder I too, would try anything to see improvement. The Oxy Aloe Formula cannot hurt them in any way as long as the dose is adjusted for their age and it may be worth a try for you.

Those interested in Dr. Rimland’s work can reach his Autism Research Institute here in San Diego California by simply typing his name into your search engine. Check back soon for information about Autism Awareness Month coming next week.

Liquid Delivery System for Baseline Nutrients

After the age of 50 or so our ability to both digest and absorb nutrients declines steadily. This is due to many factors including consuming a diet of dead lifeless over-processed foods for past decades. This results in a lack of enzyme production in the stomach and an imbalance in the pH of gastric fluids. Under these circumstances taking a supplement in tablet form becomes less and less effective due to our inability to break them down. You may have heard of the old story about the septic tanks and how full they are with supplement tablets that passed through someone’s digestive system whole and came out much like they went in.

After many months of trial and error, we developed a system of liquid delivery to address all the issues of failing digestion. Firstly at a certain age we begin to lose the ability to produce enough natural stomach acid. This results is heartburn, bloating, and acid reflux. Instead of destroying what little acid might remain we should be increasing the acid in the stomach to better digest protein foods.

The next problem then becomes the ratio of one nutrient to another. In nature these ratios are present naturally but since our foods do not contain many of these nutrient any longer that ratio is often disrupted. A supplement that is designed to replace these nutrients must also consider ratios. You can take our Vitamin and Mineral Quiz FREE and Dr Whiting will call you after he receives it.

When we developed our liquid delivery system we first made certain that the potency of each nutrient was sufficient to meet the needs of the body in our lifestyles. Next we addressed the issue of ratios to ensure that the body had access to all the nutrients as nature intended. We then suspended these nutrients in a liquid delivery system, which we adjusted to a pH of 4.5 – the natural acidity of the healthy stomach. Through these steps we have been able to produce a supplement that can be enjoyed and will benefit anyone at any age.

Trace Minerals the Missing Longevity Link

At the moment of conception, each of us begins a journey called life. We start this adventure as a single fertilized cell in the mother’s womb.

Within this cell, lies all of the knowledge for your body, cell by cell, and organ by organ.

There are countless tissue structures, which must be formed, as well as skeletal structures and chemical processes. The knowledge, for each of these complex activities, lies within that single fertilized cell. Hidden deep, within the heart of the cell called the nucleus, is the DNA, the carrier of all knowledge.

Shortly after conception takes place, that single cell will prepare to divide and the one will become two, and the two will become four, and so on. This cell division will continue on until a perfect biochemical wonder develops over a nine-month period of time, ready to enter the world as a human being, complete in every way.

This vastly complex process, from its beginning, is, almost totally, dependent upon the presence of nutrients that have, previously, been little recognized.

Enzyme production is responsible for proper digestion and absorption of the foods we eat, along with thousands of other biochemical functions. Enzyme production is, also, dependent upon the trace mineral group because enzymes are formed, only, in the presence of trace minerals.

Trace elements are, also, an integral part of the structures of most hormones such as thyroid hormones, insulin, adrenalin, and the sex hormones. Some of the most devastating disease conditions arise from the malfunction of the endocrine system and hormone activity. Proper supplementation, with trace minerals, often helps to regulate hormonal activities, one with the other.

Since most all biochemical activities begin at the cellular level that is where we should focus our attention. The micro trace elements work there to provide the right environment for repair and maintenance of the body. Using the micro trace elements in supplement form can support this process and over time may help to keep you active, flexible and younger later years in life. Remember that all chronic disorders such as arthritis and related joint issues can begin decades before you feel the pain. Keeping your body nourished with the micro minerals may go a long way towards warding off problems later in life. Check back next week for more information on the best plant based trace minerals and how they can help you.

Why Can’t I Get My Nutrition From Food?

Everyone is always telling us to “eat better” yet even if we try and do so it may not fully meet our body’s nutritional needs. The nutrients in our foods have been steadily declining for several decades. This is due initially to poor farming techniques and not re-mineralizing the farmlands with the 70+ micro nutrients needed for plant health as well as our own.

Today we have super high calorie foods available everywhere but foods that supply less than half the nutrients needed for wellness. This deficiency causes the body to crave more and more food – not for the calories but for the missing nutrients, nutrients that will still be missing no matter how much of these foods we consume. This may be in part, a contributing factor to the obesity epidemic since the appetite center will respond to a lack of essential nutrients in the same way that it does from a lack of calories. Both situations are seen by the body as “starvation”. This is why it is essential for those dieting to take a good Full Spectrum supplement every day. Watch my video Full Spectrum Nutrition and Multi-Vitamins.

This is what is happening to our food every day:
Poor soil and a lack of micro trace elements
Mineral deficient plants cannot manufacture vitamins
Premature harvesting of food prevents vitamin formation
Cold storage of food slowly depletes nutrients
Over cooking of food leeches out what little nutrients might have remained. With our LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals you will be better prepared to combat these issues.

You can see by this process that by the time our food reaches our dinner table very little nutrients may remain. The best way to solve this problem is by supplementing the diet with a Full Spectrum supplement that provides the 100+ nutrients your body needs on a daily basis for optimal wellness. Check back soon for more information on Nutrition Awareness Month.

Do I Need A Dietary Supplement While I Am Dieting?

According to the U. S. Government, at least half of us are deficient in 50% of the minimum daily requirement of essential nutrients. This is due to consuming a diet of over-processed junk foods as well as other factors such as over-cooking, canning, freezing, drying, and the fact that our farmlands have been depleted in essential micro trace minerals from decades of non-replacement. In fact, according to investigations by the United States Congress, at least 80 percent of most chronic degenerative diseases could be prevented by simply getting regular exercise and taking a good, broad based, dietary supplement.

When we go on a diet to lose weight, both the amount and variety of foods we consume will be reduced or altered. It doesn’t really matter if you are on a low calorie, low fat, low carbohydrate, or a combination program, it should be apparent that you will be getting less food and less variety, which will mean less nutrients! For this reason we feel that it is absolutely essential to take a good Full Spectrum dietary supplement every day like LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals.

Other factors that can cause a loss of essential nutrients include increased fluid loss when dieting, nutrient loss through increased exercise, and nutrient loss through increased metabolism.

The end result of this is increased nutrient deficiency, which can, over time, lead to chronic disease or make existing health challenges worse. A direct side effect of nutrient deficiencies on your diet program will be an increase in appetite and food cravings and an eventual slowing of your resting metabolism. Watch my video Full Spectrum Nutrition and Multi-Vitamins for more information on this.

Here’s how it works. As your body becomes more and more nutrient deficient, this stimulates the appetite center of the brain to consume more food in an attempt to make up these nutrient deficits. Cravings for specific foods can also greatly increase as the body tries to meet micronutrient needs. If the body remains in a state of nutrient deficiency for too long, the internal biochemistry begins to change, perceiving the situation as malnutrition. Once this occurs, the body will start to slow the resting metabolic state, similar to what occurs during food deprivation. Between the two, it can make ongoing weight loss very difficult, if not impossible.

Remember that every day your body needs at least 100 nutrients. These include 3 fatty acids, 16 vitamins, 70+major and trace minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. If any of these are significantly deficient, it can affect the way the body uses all the others. The best way to prevent these problems, especially when dieting, is to take a Full Spectrum Supplement every day like LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals. The best source of nutrient intake is in a liquid form, which helps to ensure maximum absorption to the cells of the body. Do yourself a favor and increase the success of your weight management program by taking a Full Spectrum Supplement every day and check back soon for more information on Nutrition Awareness Month.

March is Nutrition Awareness Month

March is Nutrition Awareness Month and in spite of living in a country of abundance many people are seriously deficient in vitamins and minerals simply because the diet does not supply them in optimal quantities anymore. This is due to a variety of factors beginning with a depletion of trace minerals in our farmlands then premature harvesting, cold storage, and food preparations including drying, over cooking, and the addition of food additives.

It is estimated that at least 50% of us do not ingest even 50% of many of the essential nutrients needed for optimal wellness. This over time, can lead to chronic degenerative diseases because the body does not have the raw materials to build and repair itself. Our immune system then begins to suffer and we find ourselves getting sick much more often than we should. The sad thing is that this problem is so easily fixed. By taking a Full Spectrum multi supplement every day you can ensure that your body will have the nutrients necessary to take care of you.

It is important to choose a supplement that is bio-available, highly absorbed, and provides enough potency to do the job. We have developed two such supplements that have an absorption rate of over 85%. One is in liquid form and the other in a micro thin veggie capsule.

LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals – This liquid delivery supplement provides over 130 nutrients to the body including vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, fatty acids, and phytonutrients. It’s easy to take – just one ounce once a day with the first meal of the day and you are set to go!

Full Spectrum Caps – This is our capsule version and it too, provides the Full Range of known nutrients to the body. These formulas provide true “Health Insurance” to the body, supporting thousands of biochemical activities internally. Check back soon for more information on Nutrition Awareness Month.

Denise Mueller Bicycle Land Speed Record

Here at The Institute we are pleased to announce a new upcoming video with cycling pro Denise Mueller. She already holds 15 National Championships and numerous other titles. Currently Denise is training in an attempt to do something no woman cyclist has ever attempted. As her nutritionists we are working with her and supporting her training with the right nutrient combinations. In our interview with her we will discuss this huge project and you will learn firsthand, what her goal is and how proper nutritional supplements are helping her to achieve it!

She is currently using our Liquid Essential Minerals as well. She takes these on a daily basis. The advantages to these trace minerals for athletes are their ability to heal minor injuries resulting from training. The coach, John Howard, world class Olympian and holder of the bicycle land speed record, takes these same trace minerals as well as our Full Spectrum High Vitality multi-supplement. John recognized the benefits that can come from a liquid delivery system as far as absorption is concerned. John continuously uses our formulas with all of his students around the world. He routinely sees the benefits from liquid supplements for his students and the differences they make in their training and recovery.

Organic Trace Minerals

One of the most overlooked nutrient groups are the trace minerals, please take our FREE Vitamin and Mineral Quiz today, then give Dr Whiting a call at 1-888-454-8464.

There have been at least 70 trace and micro trace minerals found in the human body. While we don’t know the function of many of these as of yet we do know that they are vital to many life forms including plants and animals. Deficiency in these trace elements is epidemic due to depleting farming practices over many decades. Seventy years ago these trace minerals were found naturally in our food because the farmlands were still rich in these resources. Today however these nutrients are almost completely missing from the food we consume, and the deficiency is having many negative side effects on our health. Watch my video Plant Derived Trace Minerals to learn more about how you can benefit from using plant derived trace minerals along with a Full Spectrum Supplement can be a winning team.

Each time a farmer replants his fields he fertilizes with what is known as NPK – Nitrogen Phosphorus and Potassium. These minerals make plants grow faster and with great yield per acre, but this practice does not replace the micro trace minerals taken from the soil with each planting. Over time these elements literally vanish from our farmlands leaving us in a deficit. I have talked to many cattle ranchers who tell how they must supplement their livestock with trace mineral supplements because the soils are so depleted yet we never seem to think that humans also need these nutrients on a regular basis.

The best trace element supplements are those that are derived from plant sources. Currently prehistoric plant deposits in Utah are being accessed to produce “organic” trace mineral supplements. These minerals demonstrate some very interesting properties as far as the Krebs cycle of energy, detoxification, and of course meeting the nutritional needs our foods can no longer supply. Check back soon for more information on natural plant derived trace minerals and how they can help you.

Plant derived trace minerals

The functions of the micro trace minerals in the body are numerous. They act as catalysts for thousands of chemical actions internally. In fact without these trace minerals vitamins cannot be fully activated and many of their benefits are suppressed. This is why we always combine these trace minerals in all our Multi-vitamin/Mineral formulas. Doing so helps all the nutrients work better. Take the FREE Vitamin and Mineral Quiz today, then give Dr Whiting a call at 1-888-454-8464.

Due to the highly acidic pH of plant derived trace minerals, they can aid in the digestion and absorption of proteins as well as major minerals such as calcium and magnesium. In addition to enhanced absorption, micro trace minerals often improve digestion due to the acidification of the stomach. Take a minute to watch my video plant derived trace minerals to learn more about how you can benefit from using plant derived trace minerals.

One of the most amazing things about these trace minerals is their ability to accelerate the healing of soft tissue and bone injuries. We have used this formula called Liquid Daily Essentials with many athlete’s with great success and in very high doses for short periods with those suffering from athletic injuries and it often reduces the healing time by as much as 40%. If this happens with athletes you can see the obvious benefits for the rest of us. Even minor soft tissue injuries, sprains or other joint issues can be supported by the addition of micro trace elements to the supplement program. Check back soon for more information on plant derived trace minerals and how they can help you.

The Low Energy Epidemic

Did you know that complaints of low energy and fatigue are the number one reason why people visit their doctors? Over 50% of all doctor visits revolve around this complaint. Low energy is what we call one of the first lines of symptoms your body produces when it is out of internal balance due to multiple nutrient deficiencies. If left unaddressed, this fatigue will progress to a host of other symptoms.

Millions of people use a variety of stimulants such as caffeine, which may be found in coffee and all those so-called energy drinks. These can give you a temporary boost but often a crash comes afterward. Further, caffeine increases urine output, depleting the body of essential water soluble nutrients including many vitamins and minerals. These deficiencies further damage the internal balance of the body leading you farther down the road towards chronic disease.

We have found that rather than falsely stimulating the body several times during the work day, a better way to find lasting and permanent energy and vitality is to provide the body with the 100+ nutrients it needs every day and let your internal chemistry take what it needs and use these nutrients to maintain wellness.

By taking this approach you are solving the problems that cause fatigue and many other nagging issues such as stiffness, aches, and pains and others. These are most often related to long term nutrient deficiencies that the popular energy drinks on the market cannot address, but in fact often times they can make the situation worse. We recommend a Full Spectrum Multi-nutrient supplement everyday called High Vitality.

Comprehensive Nutrient Evaluation

The language of the body consists of symptoms. These symptoms tell us when there is something out of balance with the internal biochemistry. The comprehensive Nutrient Evaluation Test was developed by The Institute of Nutritional Science to help identify any potential deficiencies so that they may be corrected BEFORE they might become major issues. By providing the right targeted nutritional support the body is in the best possible position to heal itself through rebalance.

The test consists of over 250 yes or no questions, in over 30 categories. Each is designed to identify specific nutrient or nutrient group deficiencies. The test further correlates each group with the others so that we can help ensure that your nutrient program is not only balanced but in the right ratio for your individual body needs.

NBC’s Today Show’s Twisted Calcium Show

A recent meta-analysis conducted at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and published in the British Medical Journal states that taking calcium supplements do not prevent bone loss or fractures in older people. The study goes on to say that there is no link that calcium supplements or even dietary calcium is of any benefit. How can this be when there are dozens of studies to the contrary?

The calcium used in these negative studies was always calcium carbonate or ground up rocks. In those over the age of 50 this form of calcium is almost impossible to absorb. This would account for the lack of beneficial response. Unfortunately the study does not make a differentiation between one form of calcium over another. In order for calcium to be absorbed and hence have benefit, it must be acidified. For example we use a combination of calcium citrate and calcium malate to help ensure absorption. Further to that we also include all the key trace minerals shown to further enhance calcium uptake. I have always said that all calcium supplements are not equal. The inexpensive products sold in drug stores and “warehouses” are almost always calcium carbonate with no supportive nutrients added – hence the lack of absorption.

The study goes on to say that taking these calcium supplements may be harmful and deposit in the arteries and the kidneys – again only if the calcium is alkaline and without supportive nutrients. I have spent 30+ years educating folks about the need for total nutrition and the possible downside of fragmenting by taking only a few nutrients in the absence of others. This is one example of this.

When using supplements it is essential to use all the known nutrient factors together. Our calcium formula that we developed has shown to not only halt bone loss but to actually increase bone density in post-menopausal women. But in order for calcium to do this it must be acidified and have magnesium, boron, manganese, copper, zinc, and especially strontium for absorption.

Fragmenting nutrition has a host of side effects, which is why we have made our Full Spectrum formulas that contain all the known nutrients the body needs on a daily basis. Our calcium formula is offered by Phoenix Nutritionals and contains all the known absorption factors in an acidic environment. It is called Bio-Complete Calcium Plus. Our Full Spectrum formulas are also offered through them and may be obtained there as well. Check back often for the latest information on Calcium and absorption.

Chronic Diseases are increasing At Alarming Rates!

While infectious disease have continued to decline in industrialized nations for several decades, the chronic illnesses (those non-contagious) have explosively increased to the point of epidemic proportions.

Currently it is estimated that 387 million people are living with type II diabetes and as many as another 100 million have likely been undiagnosed. Here at the Institute we have developed a natural formula called Blood Sugar Support, which has been shown to help support healthy blood sugar and insulin levels.

Stress, one of the leading health problems in society, costing over 300 billion in management and related illnesses in the U S alone, it affects almost 50% of the population at virtually every age level. Our formula is called Stress Eze, which provides natural nutritional support for both the central nervous system and the adrenal glands.

Heart disease management costs in excess of 500 billion annually and in spite of all the drugs and medical procedures developed, still ranks as the leading cause of death! Our formula Heart Wisdom, provides multi-faceted nutritional support for every phase of cardio vascular health.

Over 20 million people are suffering from common osteo-arthritis. This figure is expected to double in the next decade. The formula we developed is called Joint Flow Capsules, and this formula provides nutrient support for the joint and connective tissues of the body.

Obesity has hit nearly 50% of the population in many States with no end in sight. Childhood obesity has tripled in the past 30 years, now affecting kids as young as 6 years and up.

The one thing that all these problems have in common is that they are all related to lifestyle issues that can easily be prevented!! Behind the development of virtually every chronic disorder are multiple nutrient deficiencies that have gone on for years or decades. Remember the end result of all nutrient deficiencies is chronic disease.

Here at our Research Institute we have developed formulas to address these deficiencies so that your body is better able to heal itself naturally. Please feel free to contact us for further information and to take advantage of our evaluation programs to help your body prevent and even reverse these debilitating conditions.

John Howard, world class cyclist and trainer of champions has long been a client of ours. We have worked with him and his training center participants for many years, assisting them in achieving their maximum potential as athletes. We recently sat down with John to talk about the role of nutrition in athletic performance for older athletes at any level of output.

In the interview John related his own story. Now in his mid-sixties, he continues to train, compete and yes… win competitions against men half his age. While there are many factors in his ability to continue to compete at this level such as training science, dedication, discipline, and adequate rest, he also cites the importance of supporting the aging body with the right combination of nutrients.

John Howard Sets World Landspeed Record

John feels that anyone who is pursuing any sport at any level should take the right combination of nutrients in supplement form on a daily basis. This he says, is especially important after the age of 45. This advice he says applies to the weekend warrior just as much as the more dedicated athlete. In fact he sees more injuries caused by a combination of lack of training and poor nutrition among those occasional sports enthusiast than anyone else.

John has taken our Full Spectrum Liquid High Vitality supplement for many, many years and he attributes doing so to his longevity. If you have a sport you enjoy and find yourself at middle age or a bit older, consider taking Johns advice and adding a Full Spectrum Supplement to your daily routine. You will be repaid many times over for doing so. The formula John has used for many years is called High Vitality and may be obtained from Phoenix Nutritionals

The challenges facing our health today are no longer the infectious diseases. They have been replaced by a group of illnesses called chronic non-infectious disorders, which include arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, excess stress, complications of menopause, digestive disorders, and obesity to name a few. In fact type II diabetes is epidemic among certain groups including Latinos, Native Americans, and African Americans. It is estimated that 1 in 3 people from these groups will develop diabetes in their lifetime.

Research gathered from hundreds of clinical medical studies indicates that the majority of these diseases can be prevented or at least better managed with proper dietary supplements and certain diet changes. Our research center has been very successful in taking that research and developing key formulas that provide the body with the missing nutrients that it needs to heal itself and prevent the onset of these disorders. We invite you to listen to these audios to learn more about how you can enjoy greater health and wellness by adding the right dietary supplements to your life.

Nuestra Crisis de Salud – This section talks about the greatest health crisis since infectious disease and how we arrived at this point and what we can do to prevent these illnesses from destroying our health.

Nutricion de Espectro Completo – One of the major advances in nutrition science was developed here at our Institute – namely Full Spectrum Nutrition. By supplying the body with all the nutrients it needs in the right potency and ratio to each other we can rebalance the body’s internal chemistry and support it in the process of healing itself.

Reversando las Enfermedades – Since most all chronic degenerative diseases are the result of an imbalance in the body chemistry, we can support the body in reversing these conditions through the use of key targeted nutrients that have shown to help the body to heal itself and reverse the process that caused the illness.

Un Programa para Usted –Find out how easy it is for us to help design a program of supplements that will meet your body’s nutritional needs and thereby put it in the best possible place to prevent and even reverse many chronic conditions.


Cheating Death 2015 Seminars

My newly revised and updated seminar called “Cheating Death” is going on the road. I will be offering this educational seminar through professional health care businesses in many parts of the country over the next 3 to 4 months.

If you are a health or fitness business and would like to find out more about scheduling a Cheating Death seminar in your area please contact our offices, at 1-888-454-8464.

Cheating Death illustrates how America became one of the most nutrient deficient countries in the world and the terrible toll this has taken on our health. Chronic disorders such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and arthritis are all the result of years of nutrient depletion of the nutrients in our foods. We consume higher and higher amounts of calories and still cannot get even the minimum requirement of nutrients.

This presentation then goes on to show how proper nutrition, diet, and exercise can go a long way in reversing these illnesses as once the right amount of nutrients are provided, the body is in the best possible position to heal itself.

Cost Effective Supplements

The body requires at least 100+ nutrients every day for optimal wellness. These include 16 vitamins, 3 fatty acids, 70+ major and trace minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and phytonutrients. In order to take in the optimal amount of all these nutrients one would likely need to buy 5 or 6 different products and as our research has shown, this can cost between $100 and $175 dollars per month! While this is ideal it is not that practical for most people. Additionally, the hassle of taking so many different products is another concern for some.

This is one big reason why we developed a Full Spectrum Liquid Supplement. Not only is it convenient but highly absorbable as well. The best news is that it contains 136 nutrients in one bottle! This makes the formula not only convenient but very cost effective.

Dr Whiting on Full Spectrum Nutrition and Mulit-Vitamins

Because of the liquid delivery system, this is an ideal formula for every member of the family as the doses for age and other factors is easily adjusted. After the age of 45 our ability to absorb nutrients from foods starts to decline. This is another reason why a liquid delivery system is ideal for middle age and old individuals as to overcome the declining absorption issues by the nature of the chemistry involved in making it.
This is the same formula used by world class athletes for training and recovery as well as by tens of thousands of people who want a safe and convenient way to get the Full Spectrum of nutrients on a daily basis. You can share in the benefits of our research and development on this by taking High Vitality Liquid. This is the ONLY formula to provide the full range of nutrients in a liquid form.

New York AG Targets Herbal Supplements At Major Retailers

For many years I have been educating people about the difference between a quality dietary supplement and the inexpensive “bargain brands”. In spite of the fact that most of these cheap supplements, often sold by discount and “warehouse” stores, never provide the Full Spectrum of the 100+ nutrients needed by your body on a daily basis, they are also often offered in hard tablet forms, which can be very difficult to break down and absorb.

I have also been saying that the quality control on many of these bargain brands is probably virtually non-existent. Let’s face it, it you’re getting a multi-vitamin/mineral product for $6.00 at a discount store do you really think it has everything that you need in a form that will be bio-available to your body? Think again, you get what you pay for!!

Large discount stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, and even GNC have been notified by the FDA to cease selling specific supplements because their testing has shown that the products do not match the claims on the labels.

In many cases certain nutrients were not only deficient but totally absent from the products altogether!! Now you can begin to see more clearly why it is important to know the source and science behind the supplements you take. Remember it’s your body – be selective with what you put in it!!

Just a small sample of what was missing from some best selling products:

GNC Herbal Plus Brand:

Gingko Biloba – Completely missing

St. John’s Wort – Completely missing

Ginseng – Completely missing

Echinacea – Completely missing

Target’s Up & Up brand:

Gingko Biloba –None found

St. John’s Wort – None Found

Valerian Root –None Found

Echinacea, Saw Palmetto & Garlic – Present but in a fraction of the potency listed

There have been similar findings with many products sold at Wal-Mart stores as well.

By this I hope you can see why it’s important to know your supplement company and who is behind it. All of our formulas are tested several times along the way. Retention samples are kept and tested every few months.

All of the formulas I have developed are deeply rooted in clinical science and not the result of some marketing department!

What is Full Spectrum Nutrition?

In the past, nutritionists behaved much like their medical counterparts I that they would routinely use one or two isolated nutrients in order to attempt to achieve a specific result. A classic example of this would be the use of vitamin C in large doses, to help prevent a cold or the flu. This can work very well and is well established however over time high doses of vitamin C can cause a depletion of other water soluble nutrients such as the B complex and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and others. Does this mean that we should not benefit from the effects of larger doses of vitamin C? No! But it is essential to balance all nutrient intakes, which prevents deficiencies in general. The concept of Full Spectrum Nutrition, as developed by The Institute of Nutritional Science, includes three essential factors necessary for optimal supplementation.

The first factor is potency. It only stands to reasons that if a dietary supplement is to be effective, it must provide enough of each nutrient to meet ideal bio-chemical needs. In the past many nutritionists relied on this concept of potency alone and it resulted in using higher and higher potencies because the other factors of supplementation were being ignored. Conversely, the so-called “Daily Value” for each nutrient is dangerously too low to produce the effects and benefits of those nutrients.

The next factor is the concept of totality or completeness. Presently, science has identified at least 100+ nutrients that have biological function in the human body. These include amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and specialized antioxidants. Sadly, so many “multiple vitamin” supplements on the market provide less than half of those 100+ nutrients. If you want to evaluate the benefit of a specific supplement formula simply count the number of nutrients in the supplement facts box on the label. You will find that most of these products provide between 40 and 50 nutrients, many far less.

The third concept in the Full Spectrum philosophy is that of ratio. This is not only a relatively new concept to the nutrition industry but also a very important one as well. Your body is made up of over 100 trillion cells. Each of these cells must gain nutrients from foods and supplements in order to survive. Around each cell is a covering called a cell membrane. This membrane is semi-permeable, in that it allows certain things such as nutrients to pass through while keeping unwanted substances out. Each nutrient in your body, be it a vitamin, mineral, amino acid or other must ‘compete’ for space within the cell. Cells regulate not only the type of substances crossing the membrane but how much via a process called electrical potential. This is especially the case with the minerals, which all have a natural electrical charge. Those minerals with a higher charge tend to cross the cell membrane in higher amounts. The potential problem with this is when the diet or the supplement is imbalanced and there is too much of one nutrient over others the dominant nutrient can actually prevent cellular absorption of those of lesser electrical potential. In order to overcome this, our formulas contain various ratios of these nutrients in order to balance cellular absorption.

While all of this can sound a bit overwhelming and complicated, we have taken care of all these issues in our two Full Spectrum Formulas. One is in a liquid delivery system and the other in a micro thin veggie capsule. Both are easily assimilated and taken up via the bloodstream. This way you don’t have to be a biochemists in order to try and figure out what nutrients your body needs. By covering the three major factors of supplementation potency, totality and ratios we can take the guess work out of supplements and you can focus on enjoying the health benefits of doing so!
