Raw is Good for Your Health,
Are Your Vitamins Raw?
By David Steinman – Healthy Living Article

Raw foods are good for us. Rich in enzymes and peptides, raw foods add vitality to our health. Why have we ignored this concept when it comes to our multivitamins?

Why, when it comes to nutritional supplements, do we suddenly go to the laboratory and a world of extreme processing? Why do so many of us unconsciously choose synthetic, isolated nutrients created from petroleum?

Why do so many take beta-carotene or vitamin E made from petrochemical starter stocks at a chemical factory in Germany or elsewhere in the world when they can have a raw, whole food complex with synergistic interactions? After all, if highly processed foods aren’t good for us (and almost all public health experts and doctors worth their salt tell us this), could processed vitamins be any different?

Do we always require irradiation applied to our herbs? Must they be heat processed so many once-vital molecules are left lifeless?

Asking these questions means we’re looking at things differently nowadays when it comes to our nutritional supplements. We are seeing more consumers passing over the products with single, isolated, chemically synthesized nutrients in favor of a more “wholistic” approach.

The way to do this is with fermentation using the actions of beneficial bacteria, whose digestion of plants and nutrients melds them back together into their natural form. Vitamin C is no longer ascorbic acid but rather delivered with potency-enhancing bioflavonoids. Folic acid, part of the B vitamin complex, appears in all its manifold variations. Antioxidants, which are compounds and substances that inhibit oxidation and may deactivate free radicals, work best within the fabric of the whole food.

Many studies show whole food vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals from vitamin C to selenium and coenzyme Q10 work best when presented with all cofactors.

But most run-of-the-mill nutrition formulas don’t bother to use nature’s alchemy to recreate the natural whole food fabric. Very few companies know how to do this or even know they could do this!

Not so with Vitamin Code multivitamins and raw food singles. Garden of Life continues to open up new categories and opportunities for health and wealth within the nutrition field. What they’re doing now—and this is very exciting—is creating an entirely new nutrition category called whole food raw multivitamins, along with targeted singles formulas. They’ve looked at the ecology of nutrition and found a way to bring you this concept.

Vitamin Code Raw singles represent a huge breakthrough in how we think about dietary supplements. As I mentioned, the notion that our vitamins should be artisanally crafted with benefits from beneficial bacteria (also known as probiotics) is basically a whole new category for consumers and the industry, one to which only a few of the very best companies can aspire at this time; but, it’s all part of a healthy evolution of our understanding of how nutrients work best—and they seem to work best within a collage of all their related compounds or code factors.

Everywhere, people are seeking raw or fermented foods to improve their health.

Why are raw foods so popular?

People who care about their health realize that raw foods are rich in enzymes and many other phytochemicals that processing and heating destroy. People are learning about the link between enzymes and longevity—that when enzymes in the body are depleted, health suffers. The body can produce only so many enzymes endogenously (internally), and people realize food enzymes are as necessary to health as any vitamin. But all too often processed foods (and vitamins) lack such enzymes due to heat and other processing.

These enzyme molecules are only produced when food is in its natural state or fermented with beneficial bacteria. Fermented foods such as yogurt, miso, and, yes, even coffee, deliver an incredibly diverse supply of antioxidants, especially powerful enzyme antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase and glutathione, due to the interaction of beneficial bacteria with phytochemicals. In fact, this interaction starts in the soil when a seed is planted. This is the wisdom inherent in consuming raw foods.

Many people with chronic illnesses or allergies say their health problems disappear after a month or two of eating raw foods. Others say they experience improved vision and notable drops in cholesterol and blood sugar. Raw is good.

Paul Nison, one of the world’s leading experts in raw foods as well as an author of a half-dozen books, including a classic, The Raw Life: Becoming Natural in an Unnatural World, fell in love with Vitamin Code raw vitamins when he first learned about them.

Paul’s journey toward eating raw started when he was 20 years old and he found his health was compromised with severe digestive troubles. Paul was living in New York City, rushing through a frenzied life as a Wall Street trader, but his poor health caused him to rethink where he was headed. He discovered that eating seemed to make him feel worse. Wait a minute, he thought. If what I eat is causing my troubles…

So Paul started experimenting by eliminating foods that made him feel ill. Gone were the cheeseburgers and fries, the “gut-bomb” burritos, and the spicy nachos. As he simplified his diet, he discovered that the only foods that left him feeling good— even vibrant and healthy—were fresh organic fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and seeds. But they had to be served raw.

“I finally realized that health doesn’t start with what we add to our diet but with what we leave out,” he said.

When Jordan Rubin, the founder of Garden of Life, told him about the exciting work being done to develop Vitamin Code multivitamins and singles produced with Raw Food-Created Nutrients, “I got excited about the whole technology behind the Vitamin Code,” Paul says. “I’m definitely looking forward to telling the world about these powerful products because not only are they the only raw vitamins and minerals I know of, but I also believe them to be of the highest quality. It’s just taking what’s out there now to the next level,” he said.

“There are a whole bunch of people like myself who want to take vitamins that aren’t missing enzymes because they’ve been processed by heat,” he said. “The fact that Vitamin Code formulas are vegan is a real plus for me, and I know a lot of people are looking for vegan raw food vitamins—even if they are not 100 percent vegan themselves.”

Vitamin Code Single Raw Vitamins

Each vitamin and mineral contained in the Vitamin Code singles formulas is individually cultivated with beneficial bacteria within a whole food complex of key fruits and vegetables, none heat treated themselves, all certified organically grown for highest potency and purity, resulting in a process that mimics plant activity. With a certified organic raw whole food base consisting of the healthiest foods such as bananas, parsley, strawberries, cucumbers, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, bell peppers, and more, combined with beneficial bacteria, perhaps the most potent vitamins and minerals in the world are created, replete with plenty of code factors produced by the action of beneficial bacteria on the vitamins and minerals and whole raw plant base. This intelligent process expertly mimics nature.

And now in addition to the Vitamin Code Raw Multivitamins, there are raw whole food vitamin singles, which means shoppers can address their individual health needs, such as antioxidants and immune, heart and circulatory health with enhanced B complex support, non-heme iron, full-spectrum vitamin E, vitamin A, and more.

Indeed, the big news is Garden of Life Vitamin Code’s newly introduced line of singles, individual formulas that people take to supplement their multivitamin. Somebody who would want to support anti-aging would use their antioxidant complex, and people seeking heart health extra support would use the Vitamin Code Raw Vitamin E formula. Other formulas include Vitamin Code Raw B Complex and non-heme iron requirements. Vitamin Code Raw Antioxidants is a comprehensive whole food multinutrient antioxidant formula with Raw Food- Created Nutrients for targeted delivery of vitamin A complex, vitamin C, vitamin E complex and selenium, as well as the powerful master antioxidants glutathione and superoxide dismutase. These nutrients are individually cultivated with their code factors intact, are naturally recognized by the body and nourish as intended by nature for heart, skin, eye, brain and immune support. For example, vitamin E recycling in the body is intricately connected to other nutrients like vitamin C, glutathione and selenium. Vitamin C is required to keep vitamin E in its metabolically active form; glutathione is required to keep vitamin C in its active form; and selenium helps to keep glutathione in its active form. Vitamin A in conjunction with vitamin E and selenium provides immune system support.

According to the World Health Organization, iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies worldwide. The most severe form of iron deficiency is iron-deficiency anemia. Vegetarians and vegans are more likely to consume less absorbable iron and as a result have reduced iron stores; planning meals carefully can be of help, and iron supplements could assist for optimal iron intake.

Women of childbearing age require additional iron to compensate for menstrual blood loss and for tissue growth during pregnancy and blood loss at delivery and postpartum.

Recently, gastric bypass surgery has become more common as a weight reduction solution and these individuals are susceptible to iron deficiency.

Blood donors are also at special risk of low iron levels and are often advised to supplement their iron intake.

Many athletes who undergo strenuous exercise report incidences of “sports anemia.”

Some cases of low hemoglobin levels can be explained by temporary increases in plasma volume. However, others suffer from reduced iron status and true iron deficiency.

Individuals with health conditions that cause blood loss or malabsorption may become iron deficient.
Good sources of dietary iron include red meat, fish, poultry, lentils, beans, leaf vegetables, chickpeas, and black-eyed peas. Vitamin Code Raw Iron is a comprehensive whole food multinutrient formula with Raw Food-Created Nutrients for targeted delivery of vitamins and minerals, particularly iron, vitamin B12, vitamin C and folic acid. Raw Iron provides 22 mg of Raw Food-Created iron, 122 percent of the recommended daily value.

Vitamin Code Raw singles also come in Vitamin Code Raw Vitamin B12 (extra absorbability for vegetarians and vegans), and Vitamin Code Raw Vitamin C. Vitamin Code represents a breakthrough in purity, too. At no point during the cultivation process are the vitamins and minerals treated, adulterated or cooked. Also important is what you won’t find on the label: no binders or fillers. With pure encapsulation, Vitamin Code nutrients are 100 percent active, meaning that every ingredient contained within them has nutritional value and purpose.
