Using food in place of medicine is far from a new concept. Greek physician Hippocrates, born in 460 BC., once said; "Leave your drugs in the chemist's pot if you can heal the patient with food." Unfortunately, this form of thinking has been lost as we make more empty calories, refined food, advancements with medicines and solutions that treat the symptoms with a one pill a day approach, but don't fix the underlying problems.

Why Whole Food Supplements?

The Importance of Whole Food Supplements

The Refining Process of Wheat

As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day. Americans are overfed and undernourished.

We eat plenty but we are still starving
The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with the nutrition it needs to survive and be healthy. We are starving our bodies and we are sick. We suffer from diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, and the list goes on and on.

Wheat kernel comprised of starch and nutrient-rich bran and germ

Bran and germ are removed, resulting in primarily empty starch (flour).

Processed flour is bleached to improve the appearance and texture of consumer goods.

Bleached flour is enriched by adding in a few isolated B vitamins and iron in an attempt to replace what has been removed.

Nutrient-deficient consumer goods that have the ability to sit on a store shelf for an extended period of time are the final result.

There is good news
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. If properly fed and given the right nutrients, the human body is designed to repair itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet, all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.

Only whole food supplements complete the nutritional gap
Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods for use in supplements. When processed correctly, they supply a multitude of the plant's components. Foods provide nutrients that work synergistically. They work together to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health.

A word of advice: Not all whole food supplements are the same
Many whole food supplements available in today's marketplace range in quality. Companies are riding the wave of supplement popularity rather than focusing on commitment and quality.

Talk with your health care professional at CosMedic Laser Clinic to learn more about whole foods supplements products. Call 408-945-0400 to make a consultation and medical evaluation specific to your health care needs.

Understanding Supplement Labels

Two Basic Types of Nutritional Supplements

Brand A (whole food supplement)
Whey (milk) protein powder, flax meal powder, brown rice protein powder, calcium citrate, magnesium citrate, buckwheat juice powder, Brussels sprouts (whole plant), kale, choline bitartrate, inositol, barley grass, alfalfa juice powder, soybean lecithin powder, grape (seed) extract (includes Masquelier's® OPC-85; 98% total phenolic compounds; 65% proanthocyanidins), carrot powder, and red wine extract (95% total phenols).

Brand B (isolate-based supplement)
Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium Oxide, Potassium Chloride, Cellulose, Ascorbic Acid, dl-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate, Acacia, Croscarmellose Sodium, Zinc Oxide, Dicalcium Phosphate, Stearic Acid, Dextrin, Titanium Dioxide, Niacinamide, Silicon Dioxide, Hypromellose, Gelatin, Soy Extract, Magnesium Stearate, Calcium Silicate, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Manganese Sulfate, Polyethylene Glycol, Corn Starch, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Mannitol, Cupric Oxide, Resin, Lecithin, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Acetate, Chromium Chloride, Folic Acid, Dextrose, Beta Carotene, FD&C Red #40 Lake, FD&C Blue #2 Lake, Sodium Selenate, Biotin, Phytonadione, Cyanocobalamin, Ergocalciferol.

In Brand A, vitamins and nutrients are derived mainly from recognizable food sources. In Brand B, the vitamins and nutrients are man-made chemical isolates not recognized as food sources.

There are many different kinds of supplements on the market, and it can be very confusing to determine the true value of a supplement. Understanding the label will help you know if you are taking a quality supplement.Where do the nutrients come from?
Look at the ingredients on the food label. Do you recognize any of them? Just like any other food label, the nutrients are listed in a particular order and some manufacturers put the source next to the nutrient. In a quality, wholesome product, you will recognize and be able to pronounce most of the ingredients on the label.What is the importance of whole food ingredients?
Only whole food ingredients can provide you with all the nutrients contained within the food, rather than just isolated components. For example, in brand B (left) the sixth ingredient is dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate. This is not a food ingredient. It is an isolated component of the vitamin E complex. If you were to take a supplement with just dl-alpha tocopheryl, you would be missing at least five other important nutrients as well as hundreds of other nutrients that occur within the whole vitamin E complex. These nutrients are only available by consuming natural, whole food forms of vitamin E, such as wheat germ oil, pea vine, green leafy vegetables, nuts, sunflower seeds.

To be effective, don't I need to get at least 100% of the daily value?
We often think that more is better. However, when choosing supplements, quality is far more important than quantity. A small amount of a vitamin in whole food form is far more effective in the human body than a large dose of an isolated vitamin. This is because the isolated form is just a fraction of the whole and is missing important nutrients that the body needs. Taking more of the isolated form will not make up for its deficiencies.

Talk with your health care professional at CosMedic Laser Clinic to learn more about whole foods and Standard Process products. Call 408-945-0400 to make a consultation and medical evaluation specific to your health care needs.

Don't Forget the Sunscreen and Supplements

 

For most of us in Silicon Valley, all year around is a time to "play" outside, and being in the sun and activities, like running, biking, swimming, walking, hiking, skiing etc, are a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and get back into shape. Unfortunately, our bodies are often simply not used to the increased physical stress, including the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems.

The cardiovascular system, especially the heart, will need the proper nutrients to ensure its ability to correctly function during increased physical stress. Consider adding Standard Process' cardiovascular products to support a strong heart, healthy oxygen metabolism, efficient circulation of blood, and cell growth, repair, and function.

And don't forget the body's largest organ, the skin. Summer is an ideal season to support your skin for healthy structure and function with essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Our special Skin Care Products and Natural Products such as Dermatrophin PMG®, Cataplex® F, Wheat Germ Fortified™, or USF Ointment (used topically), all support the skin during heat and sun exposure.

Proper hydration is very important to remember as the temperatures increase. Drink water throughout the day, not just when you feel thirsty. Additionally, it may be helpful to workout during the cooler morning or evening hours to avoid greater depletion.

The sun takes a toll on our bodies and increases our need for supplementation, protectively and preventatively. We encourage our patients to utilize whole food supplementation, and sunscreen, as part of their daily regimen.

Call us now at 408-945-0400 or inquire during your visit about natural daily whole vitamins and supplements such as Catalyn (Not isolated synthetic vitamins) of interest to you. Dr. Lee first released Catalyn in 1929. He chose the name Catalyn to reflect the product's catalytic effects, since the vitamin, mineral, and enzyme complexes found in Catalyn work as organic catalysts. Catalyn contains many different vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and trace minerals in their natural state, offering complete and balanced nutritional support.

Weight Challenge:

Some Simple Tips

Our weight is a result of how much we take in and how much we burn. The first step is to have a burning desire to be healthy. Eat regularly, never miss breakfast, eat small portions and slowly omit the sugars. Eat three meals and three snacks every day, do not eat if you are not hungry (if you feel full there is no need to finish all the food in the plate), and drink plenty of water every day.

» Eat organic, balanced food, variety, whole grains, colorful vegetables and fruits.
» Eat organic, non refined and natural and WHOLE food and grains and meat and dairy products.
» Eat food which is rich in omega 3 fatty acids (e.g. Fish, almonds, flaxseeds, pecans, peanuts, pine nuts, pistachio and walnuts.) Eat natural fats such as butter, olive oils (no canola oil or margin), olives, nuts and anything high in Omega Fatty acids.
» Take only Whole Food Supplements and Vitamins made from natural unprocessed ingredients. You may look at some of these Whole Food Natural Supplements and Vitamins Brochures.
» Eat foods that have not been processed and that do not contain processed ingredients.
» Eat low glycemic index (GI) food. Low GI foods are slower to digest so you feel full longer; keeping the insulin levels low, inhibits the formation of fat and assists in the conversion of fat back to energy.
» Do Not eat refined sugar or unnatural sugar substitutes. Eat natural whole sweeteners and whole fruits.

What Is Glycemic Index?

Glycemic Index measures the speed at which food is digested and converted to sugar. The faster the food breaks down, the higher the glycemic index. GI of glucose is 100. All other foods are measured against the 100.

The key to loosing weight or maintaining the weight is to eat low GI food, low caloric food, eat high quality food, small portions, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, and exercise to strength your heart and muscles. Drink a big glass of water before meals to partially fill your stomach.

Include proteins in all your meals and snacks. Eat only low fat proteins preferably from both animal and vegetable sources.

What proteins you should include:

» Lean cut meats (all fat trimmed)
» Poultry (no skin)
» Cottage cheese and plain Yogurt with fruits
» Omega 3 saturated eggs.
» Beans
» Whole grains
» Nuts
» Low fat or no fat yogurt
» Whole or low fat Milk

Reduce calories and fats by eating low GI and low fat foods.

TEA

Tea and Coffee in moderation are good. Green tea has less caffeine, and has antioxidant properties. Green tree is preferred.

Fruits

It is always better to eat organics thoroughly washed fresh fruits and vegetables rather than juice. Make sure your meals are as colorful as possible by mixing and matching different vegetables, fruits, nuts and lean meats.

Wine

A glass of wine (which contains antioxidants) with dinner is now recommended for better health. I would also add a small portion of dark chocolate (polyphenols) as dessert. Or you may consider whole food supplements that have essential beneficial ingredients of wine and chocolate.

Multivitamins

Take whole food natural multivitamin daily, follow the recommended low glycemic index diet, and exercise. Not only will you have a great skin, look fit and be full of energy, but you will also be happy. You can turn back the clock!

For more information schedule a on line consultation appointment or call 408-945-0400

Quality of Ingredients

Just like any recipe, the quality of the ingredients you use affects the quality of the final product. Therefore, it's important to answer all these questions when evaluating a supplement and its effectiveness.

Where do the ingredients come from?
Manufacturers who grow many of their ingredients have the unique ability to control the quality of the ingredient from seed to supplement. Some manufacturers own certified organic farms to further enhance the quality of their ingredients.

When are ingredients processed?
When you buy a tomato, you inspect it for quality. You wouldn't knowingly buy one that was mushy and bruised. This same principle holds true for when ingredients are prime for harvest. Different foods reach their peak nutrient value during different times within the growing season. Pea vine, for example, is at its peak during the flowering stage.

Once harvested, food begins to lose its value. It is perishable like the tomato. If there is a delay of hours, days, or months from when an ingredient is harvested to when it's processed, many of its very delicate phytonutrients are lost.

Are the ingredient's vital factors retained?
Each ingredient has its own set of rules in relation to how to best extract and package its vital life. The manufacturing process needs to retain the vital nutrients within the ingredients. Too much heat will destroy enzymes and phytonutrients. The manufacturer should use a low-temperature, high-vacuum process to make sure that the ingredient's nutrients are preserved.Talk with your health care professional at CosMedic Laser Clinic to learn more about whole foods and Standard Process products.

Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals.

Understanding Supplement Labels

Two Basic Types of Nutritional Supplements

Brand A (whole food supplement)
Whey (milk) protein powder, flax meal powder, brown rice protein powder, calcium citrate, magnesium citrate, buckwheat juice powder, Brussels sprouts (whole plant), kale, choline bitartrate, inositol, barley grass, alfalfa juice powder, soybean lecithin powder, grape (seed) extract (includes Masquelier's® OPC-85; 98% total phenolic compounds; 65% proanthocyanidins), carrot powder, and red wine extract (95% total phenols).

Brand B (isolate-based supplement)
Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium Oxide, Potassium Chloride, Cellulose, Ascorbic Acid, dl-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate, Acacia, Croscarmellose Sodium, Zinc Oxide, Dicalcium Phosphate, Stearic Acid, Dextrin, Titanium Dioxide, Niacinamide, Silicon Dioxide, Hypromellose, Gelatin, Soy Extract, Magnesium Stearate, Calcium Silicate, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Manganese Sulfate, Polyethylene Glycol, Corn Starch, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Mannitol, Cupric Oxide, Resin, Lecithin, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Acetate, Chromium Chloride, Folic Acid, Dextrose, Beta Carotene, FD&C Red #40 Lake, FD&C Blue #2 Lake, Sodium Selenate, Biotin, Phytonadione, Cyanocobalamin, Ergocalciferol.

In Brand A, vitamins and nutrients are derived mainly from recognizable food sources. In Brand B, the vitamins and nutrients are man-made chemical isolates not recognized as food sources.

There are many different kinds of supplements on the market, and it can be very confusing to determine the true value of a supplement. Understanding the label will help you know if you are taking a quality supplement.Where do the nutrients come from?

To be effective, don't I need to get at least 100% of the daily value?
We often think that more is better. However, when choosing supplements, quality is far more important than quantity. A small amount of a vitamin in whole food form is far more effective in the human body than a large dose of an isolated vitamin. This is because the isolated form is just a fraction of the whole and is missing important nutrients that the body needs. Taking more of the isolated form will not make up for its deficiencies.

The cardiovascular system, especially the heart, will need the proper nutrients to ensure its ability to correctly function during increased physical stress. Consider adding Standard Process' cardiovascular products to support a strong heart, healthy oxygen metabolism, efficient circulation of blood, and cell growth, repair, and function.

And don't forget the body's largest organ, the skin. Summer is an ideal season to support your skin for healthy structure and function with essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Our special Skin Care Products and Natural Products such as Dermatrophin PMG®, Cataplex® F, Wheat Germ Fortified™, or USF Ointment (used topically), all support the skin during heat and sun exposure.

Proper hydration is very important to remember as the temperatures increase. Drink water throughout the day, not just when you feel thirsty. Additionally, it may be helpful to workout during the cooler morning or evening hours to avoid greater depletion.

The sun takes a toll on our bodies and increases our need for supplementation, protectively and preventatively. We encourage our patients to utilize whole food supplementation, and sunscreen, as part of their daily regimen.

Call us now at 408-945-0400 or inquire during your visit about natural daily whole vitamins and supplements such as Catalyn (Not isolated synthetic vitamins) of interest to you. Dr. Lee first released Catalyn in 1929. He chose the name Catalyn to reflect the product's catalytic effects, since the vitamin, mineral, and enzyme complexes found in Catalyn work as organic catalysts. Catalyn contains many different vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and trace minerals in their natural state, offering complete and balanced nutritional support.

Weight Challenge:

Some Simple Tips

Our weight is a result of how much we take in and how much we burn. The first step is to have a burning desire to be healthy. Eat regularly, never miss breakfast, eat small portions and slowly omit the sugars. Eat three meals and three snacks every day, do not eat if you are not hungry (if you feel full there is no need to finish all the food in the plate), and drink plenty of water every day.

» Eat organic, balanced food, variety, whole grains, colorful vegetables and fruits.
» Eat organic, non refined and natural and WHOLE food and grains and meat and dairy products.
» Eat food which is rich in omega 3 fatty acids (e.g. Fish, almonds, flaxseeds, pecans, peanuts, pine nuts, pistachio and walnuts.) Eat natural fats such as butter, olive oils (no canola oil or margin), olives, nuts and anything high in Omega Fatty acids.
» Take only Whole Food Supplements and Vitamins made from natural unprocessed ingredients. You may look at some of these Whole Food Natural Supplements and Vitamins Brochures.
» Eat foods that have not been processed and that do not contain processed ingredients.
» Eat low glycemic index (GI) food. Low GI foods are slower to digest so you feel full longer; keeping the insulin levels low, inhibits the formation of fat and assists in the conversion of fat back to energy.
» Do Not eat refined sugar or unnatural sugar substitutes. Eat natural whole sweeteners and whole fruits.

What Is Glycemic Index?

Glycemic Index measures the speed at which food is digested and converted to sugar. The faster the food breaks down, the higher the glycemic index. GI of glucose is 100. All other foods are measured against the 100.

The key to loosing weight or maintaining the weight is to eat low GI food, low caloric food, eat high quality food, small portions, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, and exercise to strength your heart and muscles. Drink a big glass of water before meals to partially fill your stomach.

Include proteins in all your meals and snacks. Eat only low fat proteins preferably from both animal and vegetable sources.

What proteins you should include:

» Lean cut meats (all fat trimmed)
» Poultry (no skin)
» Cottage cheese and plain Yogurt with fruits
» Omega 3 saturated eggs.
» Beans
» Whole grains
» Nuts
» Low fat or no fat yogurt
» Whole or low fat Milk

Reduce calories and fats by eating low GI and low fat foods.

TEA

Tea and Coffee in moderation are good. Green tea has less caffeine, and has antioxidant properties. Green tree is preferred.

Fruits

It is always better to eat organics thoroughly washed fresh fruits and vegetables rather than juice. Make sure your meals are as colorful as possible by mixing and matching different vegetables, fruits, nuts and lean meats.

Wine

A glass of wine (which contains antioxidants) with dinner is now recommended for better health. I would also add a small portion of dark chocolate (polyphenols) as dessert. Or you may consider whole food supplements that have essential beneficial ingredients of wine and chocolate.

Multivitamins

Take whole food natural multivitamin daily, follow the recommended low glycemic index diet, and exercise. Not only will you have a great skin, look fit and be full of energy, but you will also be happy. You can turn back the clock!

Quality of Ingredients

Just like any recipe, the quality of the ingredients you use affects the quality of the final product. Therefore, it's important to answer all these questions when evaluating a supplement and its effectiveness.

Where do the ingredients come from?
Manufacturers who grow many of their ingredients have the unique ability to control the quality of the ingredient from seed to supplement. Some manufacturers own certified organic farms to further enhance the quality of their ingredients.

When are ingredients processed?
When you buy a tomato, you inspect it for quality. You wouldn't knowingly buy one that was mushy and bruised. This same principle holds true for when ingredients are prime for harvest. Different foods reach their peak nutrient value during different times within the growing season. Pea vine, for example, is at its peak during the flowering stage.

Once harvested, food begins to lose its value. It is perishable like the tomato. If there is a delay of hours, days, or months from when an ingredient is harvested to when it's processed, many of its very delicate phytonutrients are lost.

Are the ingredient's vital factors retained?
Each ingredient has its own set of rules in relation to how to best extract and package its vital life. The manufacturing process needs to retain the vital nutrients within the ingredients. Too much heat will destroy enzymes and phytonutrients. The manufacturer should use a low-temperature, high-vacuum process to make sure that the ingredient's nutrients are preserved.Talk with your health care professional at CosMedic Laser Clinic to learn more about whole foods and Standard Process products. Call 408-945-0400 to make a consultation and medical evaluation specific to your health needs.
