Here's another innovative nutritional supplements company I'm seriously impressed with. They have a unique take on supplements that delivers nutrients in the form of real food
, not isolated ingredients.
We've all heard that food is the best medicine, right? And we know that plants and microorganisms are the best "translators" of raw ingredients into bioavailable forms. For example, calcium from ground seashells is not nearly as useful as calcium that's been absorbed, assimilated and molecularly transformed by a broccoli plant. So getting your nutrients from plants is a great way to make sure you're getting the exact forms of vitamins and minerals your body expects (rather than just ground up rocks and shells).
Robert Held, the president of the Wellness Support Network, found a way to grow food by feeding nutrients to microorganisms and then harvesting the microorganisms to make what he calls "FoodForm" supplements. Remember how fermented tofu is healthier than straight soy milk? Or how the friendly bacteria in yogurt make it healthier than straight milk? Much the same is true here: These supplements contain "predigested" nutrients that have been transformed into ready-to-absorb formats that are compatible with the human body.
Their WSN Glucose Support Formula is for anyone working to regulate blood sugar (diabetics and prediabetics, for example). And it really works. In fact, in my opinion, this works better than diabetes drugs at controlling blood sugar. There are a number of outstanding blood sugar supplements on the market, and this is certainly one of them.
My favorite product, though, is their Calcium-Magnesium formula which includes not just the FoodForm versions of calcium and magnesium, but also a multitude of crucial supporting nutrients like vitamin D and strontium. If you've been taking "cheapo" calcium and wondering why your bones aren't getting any stronger, maybe it's time you switched to FoodForm supplements that actually work!
I've actually seen people take Tums as a source of calcium. It's absurd, as Tums is an antacid, and you need gastric acid to digest any minerals, including calcium. But it just goes to show you how much some people lack basic nutritional information. A food-based form of calcium would serve those people much better, and they might actually begin to see improved results with their bone health. Although it's important to note that bone mineral density is not merely caused by calcium deficiency; it's also caused by drinking coffee and sugary sodas, eating refined sugars or lacking sufficient vitamin D. A lack of physical exercise will also harm bone density.
The Wellness Support Network also has a multi vitamin / mineral supplement and a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee on their products. They post a number of clinical studies that I'm willing to bet the FDA will force them to take down before long (the FDA hates it when nutritional supplement companies tell the truth about the science behind their supplements). So you'd better read the science before it gets censored by the feds.
Summary: Unique, food-based supplements called "FoodForm." Excellent for people who aren't getting results from cheaper, mass-produced vitamins and supplements.
