How Do I Know My Supplements Are Working?

How Do I Know My Supplements Are Working?

In an ideal world, you’d be getting your essential vitamins and minerals from all the good food you’re eating. But if you’re eating your food from the grocery store, you’re likely lacking a few vital nutrients. Blame the food industry – even organic fruits and vegetables are picked before their prime, artificially ripened under fluorescent lights, and shipped around the country (sometimes, even the world) before landing in your cart, affecting their profile and potency.

The membrane of a cell is made of phospholipids, which are molecules that have two different groups: The head is attracted to water, and the tail is repelled by it. Together, these two groups form a bilayer that protects whatever’s inside.

5 Simple Steps To The Perfect Morning Routine

Whether it’s ringing phones, beeping alarm clocks, or kids jumping on the bed… there are so many ways that our mornings can be taken away from us.

When you start off your morning in a reactive state, you feel like you’re on your heels the entire day. You run from task to task, always feeling like you’re behind on life… rapidly reacting instead of calmly responding.

The Evolution of Vitamins: From The Stone Age to The Space Age

The Evolution of Vitamins: From The Stone Age to The Space Age

“Updating to a liposomal supplement is like making the switch from a rotary phone to the iPhone 6.”

To really grasp just how incredible liposomal technology is, it will help you to have some perspective on where it came from.

Approaching the middle of the 19th century, in the heart of France, two men began quietly experimenting with a medicine dropper, gelatin and an iron tray, to invent the first vitamin pill known to the modern world.

The year was 1834, and Joseph Dublanc, alongside François Mothès, had lit the fuse to set off an explosion of what would someday be a 60 billion dollar a year industry: nutritional supplements.

Almost 200 years have passed, and the majority of our vitamins are still being made using the same basic, primitive method. The simple idea was to mask the taste of the medicinal chemicals which doctors would give to their patients, in the form of an easy-to-swallow tablet.

The Curative Benefits of Liposomal Vitamin C

Vitamin C has proven effective at assisting our bodies to ward off illnesses and generally promoting a healthy immune system. Many people need to be getting between 65 and 90 mg of vitamin C a day, but some take as much as 1,000 to 2,000 mg a day in an effort to boost the immune system. Why is this? Interestingly, many supplemental products don’t contain the necessary additives to allow the vitamin to be properly absorbed in the body. The answer to properly metabolizing vitamin C (and other valuable nutrients) lies in solubility.

The Godfather of Vitamin C: Linus Pauling

Linus Carl Pauling was born on February 28, 1901. He had an early interest in science, which prompted him to scrounge for materials in nearby, abandoned factories to conduct chemistry experiments in his garage. Pauling was accepted into Oregon State University when he was fifteen-years-old. The high school principal refused to let Pauling take the last few classes he needed to graduate in conjunction with college courses. Consequently, Pauling did not receive the diploma for nearly five decades, until after he had acquired his second Nobel Prize.
