Vitamin Code Story
What is the “Code”?
When we refer to the “code” in Vitamin Code we are
really talking about two different concepts. The first one has to do
with the process of growing the individual vitamins and minerals that
make up The Vitamin Code multivitamins. The second one has to do with
what is completed during that same process. The first concept is about
Breaking the Code and the second one is about Code Factors.
Breaking the Code
Breaking the Code involved ingenuity, hard work and
most importantly, resolve. It took years of trial and error to discover
and perfect the process by which The Vitamin Code vitamins and minerals
A primer first on how the vitamins and minerals are cultivated. The
process begins with two large cultivation tanks. One grows Saccharomyces
cerevisiae, a beneficial probiotic yeast and single celled plant. The
other tank contains an isolated vitamin or mineral and a peptide
specific to that vitamin or mineral. The peptide is complexed with that
vitamin or mineral. While this is happening the yeast is being grown in
the other tank. At the appointed time, the two are mixed together. It is
at this point that the “code” first comes into effect.
The first part of the code has to do with peptide that
is complexed to the isolated vitamin or mineral. A peptide is a chain of
amino acids. Without the addition of the peptide, there would be no
Vitamin Code. If you added just the vitamin or mineral to the beneficial
probiotic yeast, the vitamin or mineral would remain outside of the
yeast during the growing process. The vitamin or mineral has no way to
penetrate the cell wall of the yeast. However, when the peptide is added
the story changes. The peptide, complexed with the vitamin or mineral,
allows the vitamin or mineral to pass through the cell wall of the
beneficial yeast. The peptide has the “code” that allows the vitamin or
mineral and the yeast to become one.
Not that it was a simple discovery. There was no “one
size fits all” where the peptides were concerned. The peptide that
allows vitamin B6 to pass through the yeast cell wall is not the same as
the peptide that allows calcium to pass through. In fact every single
vitamin and mineral has a different peptide that allows it access. There
are hundreds of different peptides. Figuring out which peptide went with
which vitamin or mineral was a trial and error process that took years.
It is also what makes the Vitamin Code multivitamins unique.
If breaking the code is about the most important step
in the process used to grow Vitamin Code vitamins and minerals, Code
Factors is about what happens during the process. Code Factors are
compounds that are created during the growing process.
We often think of nutrition in terms of vitamins and
minerals. Oranges are high in vitamin C. Spinach is rich source of beta
carotene which the body converts to vitamin A. Yogurt is high in
calcium. While all of this is true, it tends to sell short the true
nutritional value of raw and cultured foods. Oranges, spinach and yogurt
are a lot more complex than one vitamin or mineral. They also contain
hundreds of co-factors like probiotics, enzymes, antioxidants and
phytonutrients as well as a host of other vitamins and minerals.
We believe that isolating vitamins and minerals from
these co-factors lessens the nutritional impact of those vitamins and
minerals. That is why The Vitamin Code line of multivitamins comes
complete with Code Factors. Each Vitamin Code multivitamin comes
complete with live probiotics and enzymes, antioxidants and
phytonutrients that are created during the process used to grow the
individual vitamins and minerals. When you read the label you will find
important co-factors like CoQ10, SOD (superoxide dismutase),
glutathione, lipoproteins and glycoproteins.
It is incredibly important to remember that these
co-factors are not added to the process, they are intrinsic to the
process . Like a plant growing in a farmer’s field, the process used to
grow our vitamins and minerals provides powerful co-factors. We go to
great lengths to ensure that these Code Factors are not destroyed during
the growing process.
