This weeks Topic of the week. In 1990, Dr. Rath and the late two-time Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling published1 the revolutionary concept that a chronic insufficiency of vitamin C damages blood vessel walls. This damage triggers a biological “repair” process in which cholesterol-carrying lipoproteins deposit in the artery walls like a biological form of mortar. […]

This is one supplement that I recommend people stay on if they show for it. The need is caused by a genetic inability to convert folate to its final usable form. It plays an important role in detoxification, preventing inflammation and allergies, neurotransmitter (mood) production. This inability to convert folic acid is seen with a higher rate of heart attacks, strokes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression, and anxiety. Read more here.

TheraSupreme is a great whole food supplement that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is anti-inflammatory and is especially useful for people that react to nightshades.
The goal of TheraSupreme was to create a product that is a superb anti-oxidant, high in vitamins and minerals, an immune booster, and a100% natural food product that could be added to a drink as an all round health booster. This product has been a long time in the making, taking over a year to research and develop.
There are many products already on the market that have mixes of fruits, vegetables, enzymes, etc. Most of these products appear to put everything that has ever gotten good press into one mix. Unfortunately, in clinical practice these seem to rarely work well with patients, often causing as many health issues as they “claim” to help. With this in mind, we weren’t sure we would be able to make a product to meet our criteria. We started by buying small amounts of most of the individual ingredients found in other products and doing blind evaluation on 50 patients, checking each sample individually for efficacy. We wanted to include only those ingredients that helped close to 100% of patients.
Using these criteria in our testing, we found whole categories of items that did not work with the vast majority of patients. These categories included the algaes (spirulina, chlorella, etc.), grass juices (wheatgrass, barleygrass, etc.), fungal derived enzymes, and pro-biotics. All of these have their place but again we wanted something that would benefit close to 100% of patients. Unfortunately, most of the above mentioned ingredients appear in most fruit/vegetable blends on the market. We also found the majority of patients did not benefit on alfalfa which is often found in these types products.
After much experimentation we settled on 7 ingredients (from an initial batch of 60) and then blended them in varying ratios to obtain optimum results. This is an interesting product because, as with each other Supreme Nutrition Products, every new batch must pass the same testing to be released on the market (this has not always been easy, especially with Morinda Supreme, as many samples had to be rejected). With 7 ingredients in TheraSupreme – we may find it necessary at times to make slight variations in the ingredient list due to possible unavailability of raw materials that pass our testing.
The first batch was given to 10 people who took it over a period of time so we could test it for tolerance, taste and effect. It passed our tests but by then some of the ingredients were no longer available so we had to wait for new harvests and evaluate. It is a fun but at times frustrating and lengthy process. We finally have a complete product that passed all our tests that is now available to you.
TheraSupreme has the following 7 ingredients: bilberry, blueberry, elderberry, pomegranate, asparagus, black radish, and cilantro (coriander). All have been tested to be free of pesticide residue (We actually like this better than most organic classifications as some organic food is grown on land with a long history of pesticide use and has had only a few years without pesticides). It comes in a 270 gm container with a 9 gm scoop, giving you 30 servings.
What makes this product unique is a few things:
1) Each ingredient and batch must pass stringent Clinical and Applied Kinesiology testing
2) No added grass juices, algaes or fungal derived enzymes as they do not work well on the majority of patients in our tests
3) An all encompassing fruit/vegetable blend containing plants with many different nutrients, colors, phytochemicals, etc.
We feel for the sensitive patient this can act like taking a multi-vitamin and for everyone it can supply many phyto-nutrients that we do not get in our daily diet. It will also help boost our nutrient levels and over all immunity, health, and wellbeing.
In addition to increasing nutrient levels it also often helps detoxify chemicals and metals, be antimicrobial, and act as a very complete product that almost everyone will benefit from. Professional athletes have reported taking Thera Supreme during the season and not gotten a cold or the flu when everyone else in the locker room succumbed to them.
Many patients who suffer from nightshade (solanine) sensitivity report having symptomatic relief while taking Thera Supreme.
