The Really Healthy Company Newsletter
  November 2011 Newsletter

 

Dear Practitioner

The Really Healthy Company has a reputation for supplying specialist niche and leading edge nutritional supplements that are supported by scientific studies. Our natural range includes effective immunomodulators, potent detoxifiers, antioxidants and other functional phytonutrients. It is with this experience that we are pleased to launch a range of four products by Quantum Labs that are 100% natural, and they are uniquely formulated to give your body exactly what it needs and they do what other products simply can’t do. We urge you to give them a go - and feel the difference.

What you will notice is that they are not in capsule or pill form. They’re in inert glass bottles that protect their contents from the damaging effects of ultra-violet light. Secondly, you’ll see when you pour them, that they’re not clear liquids. They contain tiny fragments within the liquid. These fragments are actually the dead cells walls of the healthy gut bacteria that so many of us are deficient in. In short, what you have within these bottles, is the result of a probiotic bacterial culture of a very wide range of fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, carefully selected to generate particular nutrients that are seminal to good health. The probiotic culture is modelled very closely on a healthy human gut, so the result is a whole range of what we call ‘end-chain nutrients’ that are produced when the whole foods are metabolised by the probiotic bacteria. But rather than letting the bacteria metabolise all the goodness, the reactions within each of the products are frozen by the addition of organic alcohol. This kills the bacteria, which are still present, but no longer active, within the products, hence the cell wall material you find in our products. The result is a series of nutrients in the forms most well assimilated by the body, these being exactly the forms produced by a healthy gastro-intestinal tract following the consumption of the specifically selected wholesome foods that were originally put into culture.

We now have two of the products in stock; Max B and Liquid Vitamin D3, which will be followed by the New Year by Bioactive CoQ10 and Natural Folate.

 

Vitamin D3 - Immune Support

Vitamin D3Hardly a week passes without more impressive research on this vitamin/precursor hormone. Vitamin D3 is now regarded as a very important nutrient for helping us to maintain optimum health. It is one of the few essential nutrients that cannot generally be consumed in sufficient amounts in food. (Best nutritional sources being salmon, mackerel, sardines and tuna, although they only contain around 5mcg per serving.) Usually we meet our Vitamin D3 requirement through exposing our skin to sunlight, which is one reason why we usually feel so good when we are on sunshine holidays or during the summer months. This nutrient plays many invaluable roles in our bodies:

    • Supports immune function
    • Necessary for strong and healthy bones
    • Needed for proper function of the thyroid
    • Helps in calcium absorption
    • Plays a role in cardiovascular function
    • Supports healthy inflammatory response
    • Needed for normal cell division

This is one of the most bio-available and non-toxic Vitamin D3 nutritional supplements available. It is extracted from sheep's wool using methanol, and analysis confirms that it is free from methanol, hexane and cholorbenzene tagalongs. The only other ingredients in the product are the extra virgin olive oil base, and natural vitamin E, which acts as a natural preservative.

Recent Study

  • Relationship Between Serum Vitamin D, Disease Severity and Airway Remodeling in Children with Asthma

Vitamin D is proving to be a 'wonder' vitamin for so many health issues. In a recent study Vitamin D was shown to reduce symptoms in children with Severe Therapy Resistant Asthma. The children had significantly lower Vitamin D levels compared with moderate asthma sufferers

Vitamin B Complex - Metabolic Support

Vitamin B Max ComplexThe B Vitamins, known collectively as Vitamin B-complex, are natural nutrients that are vital for healthy cell metabolism as well as many other functions in the body. At one time they were thought to be a single vitamin, until research showed that what had been designated as Vitamin B was in fact eight different substances, which were then labelled Vitamin B1 (thiamine), Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (niacin), Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), Vitamin B7 (biotin), Vitamin B9 (folate or folic acid) and Vitamin B12 (cobalamins). These vitamins all have important functions in the body that include:

    • Normal cell energy production
    • Nervous system & psychological support (good for stress)
    • Maintenance of normal skin and mucous membranes
    • Immune system support
    • Normal cell reproduction

Max B is one of the very highest and most bio-available Vitamin B-complex nutritional supplements available. It is manufactured in a unique way that involves predigesting food plants, herbs and spices in a proprietary probiotic culture that has been modelled on the human intestinal tract. This unique prepatory process and the fact that the product remains in liquid form makes the Quantum Nutrition B-complex vitamins extremely bioavailable because they have been produced in a "food state", and the product includes methaylated forms of these vitamins, an important consideration for the large percentage of people who are not able to utilize (methylate) B vitamins properly, and therefore who can potentially have elevated homocysteine levels.

Max B contains all the B vitamins because research has shown that they work more effectively when they are delivered together, rather than individually.
