Beyond junk vitamins: Secrets the public isn't supposed to know about the vitamin industry - An exclusive interview with Greg Kunin from Ola Loa

Ever take a vitamin and actually feel your energy drop? There could be a reason for that: Some vitamins literally steal energy from your body's cells, while other vitamins delivered in a more natural chemical configuration actually donate energy to your cells!

In terms of nutrition, there's a huge difference between "junk" vitamins and higher end vitamins -- called "premethylated" vitamins. And while most low-end cosumer vitamin companies rely on the junk, energy-stealing forms of these vitamins, quality vitamin companies use the higher-end (and more expensive) premethylated forms.

Here's one way you can tell the difference. Take any multivitamin product and look for the B vitamins section on the Nutrition Facts label.

Cheap vitamins (non-methylated) will use standardized "USP" vitamins such as "Thiamin USP (thiamin HCL) vitamin B1." That's the chemical form of vitamin B1, and it actually requires a donation of cellular energy from your body before you can use it. The form of B12 in cheap vitamins is cyanocobalamin.

Quality vitamins, on the other hand, will use the "coenzyme" forms of the B vitamins. Thse will often be listed with the word "coenzyme," and the form of vitamin B12 will appear as either methylcobalamin or hydroxycobalamin. That's a sure sign of a high-end, quality multivitamin.

Here it is again:

USP = cheap
B12 as cyanocobalamin = cheap

Coenzyme or methylated = quality
B12 as hydroxycobalamin or methylcobalamin = quality

If you found that interesting, just wait until you read the exclusive NaturalNews interview called, "Bioidentical Vitamins and the Secret of Methylation." It's an interview with Greg Kunin, co-founder of Ola Loa (, a company that manufactures and sells high-grade vitamin powders in individual, single-serving packets that you empty into a glass of water and drink for instant absorption.

I've known Greg Kunin for more than three years, and in that time I've come to greatly respect his nutritional knowledge and Ola Loa product line. I've also handed out samples of his products to literally hundreds of people, and I've heard astonishing reports about the effects they've experienced. People have told me things like, "I felt a positive effect in minutes. My mind cleared, my energy level went up and the blurriness in my eyes actually went away."

People who experience no results from typical vitamin tablets usually see very obvious results from drinking Ola Loa. This is especially true for those with poor stomach acid production. And these positive health results are based on sound nutritional science, not any sort of stimulants like caffeine or guarana. People simply feel better, with more energy, because they're fueling their methylation biochemical pathways. (The boost in energy is especially noticeable in those who take statin drugs, since statins seriously interfere with normal cellular energy production.)

But WHY are these methylated vitamins so superior to typical "junk" vitamins?

That question is what Greg Kunin and I sought to answer in this exclusive interview. Alongside the open discussion about the Ola Loa products, you'll learn:

  • Why most vitamin companies won't pay for quality ingredients like CoQ10
  • The dirty little secret of multivitamin companies: As much as 90% of a typical tablet is pure filler!
  • How the body actually processes vitamins at the molecular level
  • Why taking the wrong vitamins can actually HURT your health rather than helping it
  • The hidden link between vitamin deficiencies and cancer, heart disease, blood clots, strokes, depression and other diseases
  • Why it's nearly impossible to get adequate nutrition from food alone
  • How your personal genetics greatly impact the biochemical pathways for processing vitamins into useful nutrients
  • Why vitamin capsules often impede the digestion and assimilation of the nutrients they contain (and why dissolvable powders can be far superior)
  • The difference between toxic B12 (the common form) and hydroxy B12 (the quality form), and why the good form costs $6,000 per kilogram
  • Why conventional medicine is so slow to adopt nutritional science
  • The crucial health role of key amino acids like TMG, and why they're important to include in quality supplement formulations
  • Why common "vitamin water" is almost universally a nutritionally worthless product (with a few exceptions)
  • Why multivitamins need to have not only the right nutrients, but the right RATIOS of nutrients to optimize the health effects
  • Why glucosamine can be harmful to diabetics (and which nutrients help balance the blood sugar effects of glucosamine)
  • Why nutrition should be the first thing checked by doctors before recommending common surgical procedures
  • Why so many nutritional products are "sugared up" to meet the taste expections of consumers

... and much more. It's like listening in on a fascinating chat between two people who are passionate about nutrition and refuse to be limited by conventional thinking. Sure, the Ola Loa products get plugged in this interview, but we take it far beyond those products and explore all sorts of other concepts and observations about nutrition, health and disease prevention.
