Probiotic Nutrients: Supplementing the Way Nature Intended
By Taryn Forrelli, ND

Within whole foods, vitamins and minerals are delivered as part of a complex mixture of synergistic phytochemicals, enzymes, cofactors and macronutrients. It is only within the last few decades that the form of nutrients found in most conventional nutritional supplements (i.e., single molecules) have been introduced to the body for cellular metabolism. From an evolutionary perspective, these compounds are relatively foreign to the body, and their overall effect is still largely unknown. Conversely, nutrients from living organisms and whole foods have been nourishing humans throughout our evolutionary history.

The Problem with Isolates

The problem with the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) vitamins and minerals found in most nutritional supplements is that they bear little resemblance to the nutrients obtained from whole foods. Instead, the production of USPs follows a pharmaceutical industry inspired approach to nutrition, which is reductionist in nature. They are chemically synthesized and delivered as single molecules (known as isolates) devoid of synergistic nutrients and cofactors. Isolating nutrients and delivering them in this unnatural way changes the body’s response to them.

Scientists have found it difficult to pinpoint the reason why consumption of specific antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin E from food offers cardiovascular protection, but USP vitamin E and other antioxidant supplements do not always show the same protective role. One explanation is that all nutrients exist in food in multiple forms. Consuming just one form of these nutrients can upset the body’s natural balance. For example, there are at least eight known forms of vitamin E present in the body as tocopherols and tocotrienols. Each of these forms confers unique benefits to human health, but most people’s vitamin E supplements contain just one form: alpha-tocopherol. This form has not been shown to possess the same COX2 or anti-inflammatory properties that gamma tocopherol, the predominant form of vitamin E found in food, displays. A disconcerting observation made by researchers at the University of California was that supplementation with just alpha-tocopherol actually depleted levels of gamma-tocopherol, while supplementation with gamma-tocopherol increased both alpha and gamma forms.

Dosage

Another common difference between USP nutrients and those obtained from natural sources is the dosage. When the body receives nutrients from food, they are generally delivered in smaller doses throughout day. Sustained nutrient release is ideal not only for absorption, but for utilization. There is a limit to how much the body can use of a specific nutrient at any given time. Many consumers who have been led to believe that “more is better” take vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid in 500-1000 mg mega-doses on a daily basis. However, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported in April 1999 that 200 mg a day is the maximum amount of vitamin C human cells can absorb, making anything above that level a waste. The vitamin C that is unusable not only places extra burden on the kidneys, but also may become biphasic, meaning that it will have the opposite of the intended effect. For example, vitamin C is commonly taken for its antioxidant and immune boosting effects, but taking supplemental doses greater than 500 mg a day can actually promote free radical damage and suppress the immune system, a finding that might make your next mega-dose of vitamin C a little bit harder to swallow.

Probiotics….Giving Life to Supplements

Fortunately, there is a natural supplement solution for health-conscious individuals who want to optimize their nutritional status and prefer the known safety and superior efficacy of vitamins and minerals from living sources: Probiotic Nutrients. These innovative nutritional supplements utilize the ancient science of fermentation to transform inorganic USP nutrients into the complex organic nutrients found in whole food.

The term probiotic literally means “for life” but generally refers to the beneficial microorganisms that inhabit the digestive tracts of humans and other animals. Probiotic organisms play an important role in diges¬tion, promote the synthesis and absorption of vitamins and minerals, stimulate the immune system, inhibit the growth of infectious organ¬isms, and help maintain healthy levels of cholesterol. Probiotics also play a role outside of the human digestive tract. They give life to the earth’s soil where they serve to transform inorganic minerals into a form that is usable for plants. In addition, various strains of probiotics have been used to create the fermented foods that have been sustaining human health for thousands of years, such as yogurt (fermented milk), miso (fermented soy), and sauerkraut (fermented cabbage).

Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that fermentation with probiotic organisms like Saccharomyces cerevisiae (also known as brewer’s yeast) and Lactobacilli increase the quality, availability, and assimilability of nutrients. A report from the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization stated, “The traditional fermentation of food serves several functions, including enrichment of food substrates biologi¬cally with protein, essential amino acids, essential acids, and vitamins…” For example, as grape juice is fermented into wine, the concentration of resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound present in the skins of grapes, can increase from 8 to 16,000 times!

It turns out that probiotic organisms can also “give life” to USP nu¬trients, thereby increasing their bioavailability, safety and activity. New Chapter, a certified organic nutritional supplement company, utilizes a unique dual-stage fermentation pro¬cess to produce their line of whole-food Probiotic Nutrients Made with Organic Ingredients.

The Fermentation Process

First, they create a nutrient-dense soup of certified organic whole food concentrates, water, and organic non-GMO soy. Next, organic Saccharomyces cerevisiae is added to begin fermenting the soup. As fermentation proceeds, the yeast becomes enriched with the nutrients present in the soup broth and releases a host of ferment metabolites. These life-giving compounds are called “synbiotics” and include short chain fatty acids and immune-enhancing compounds called bacteriocins which inhibit the overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria and yeast such as Candida albicans. Next, plant enzymes are added to break the cell walls of the yeast and release the glyco-protein bound nutrients along with health-promoting compounds like beta-glucans.

In the second stage of fermentation, three strains of Lactobacilli bacteria complete the incorpo¬ration of the vitamins and minerals into the whole-food matrix. The Lac¬tobacilli also work to expand the range of synbiotics produced. When the process is complete, the USP nutrients that were initially present in the soup are completely biotransformed into living whole-food complexes and are delivered with millions of synergistic cofactors.

It is not surprising that when researchers compare Probiotic Nutrients to their isolated counterparts, they find that Probiotic Nutrients are more readily absorbed and biologically active. Recent research conducted at the University of Scranton by one of the world’s leading antioxidant research¬ers, Dr. Joseph Vinson, found that CoQ10, a nutrient that is necessary for cellular energy production and protection from free radical damage, was three times more bioavailable and worked twenty times better as a Pro¬biotic Nutrient antioxidant compared to USP CoQ10. Earlier research from Dr. Vinson showed that probiotic selenium has 64 times more antioxidant activity than USP selenomethionine. With such a high level of activity, it is not necessary to take mega doses. After all, milligrams are simply a measure of weight, not activity. Since they are essentially food, Probiotic Nutrients are also easily digested even on an empty stomach, a welcome change for individuals with sensitive digestive systems.

Dietary experts agree that the best forms of vitamins and minerals to nourish the human body are found in whole foods. Now with the help life-infusing probiotic organisms, these same complex nutrients can be had in a nutritional supplement. New Chapter offers a complete line of Probiotic Nutrients expertly formulated by one of the country’s most re¬nowned herbal researcher and author, Paul Schulick. Each formula pro¬vides 100% whole food Probiotic Nutrients, accompanied by nourishing whole herb and super-food extracts.
