OUR HERBAL FORMULAS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


How Do I Obtain Optimum Results?

For optimum results the key word is commitment. Unlike prescription and OTC medications which may cause an immediate response in the body, herbal and nutrient therapy can be a slower process. Commitment to a regular daily supplement schedule is vital, as is commitment to a period of time which can be anywhere from several weeks to several months. This allows enough time for the nutrient and herb to facilitate change and repair in the body on a cellular level, and bring about the desired results.

 

How Do Herbal Formulas Work?

When taking certain products, you may feel worse before you begin to feel better, and this is more likely with Detox Products. As you move towards balance by adding herbal and nutritional supplements to your lifestyle, healing begins to occur. As part of the healing process and to set the stage for regeneration, the body could begin to eliminate toxic residues which may have built up over many year. As the nutrients and herbs promote optimum cellular function old tissues are replaced with new. During the initial phase of healing, as your body begins to clean house (detoxify) you may experience headache, flu like symptoms and fatigue. This can be relieved by DRINKING LOTS OF WATER and if necessary cut back on your supplements to allow the body to adjust more slowly and comfortably.

 

Why are the Products “Enzyme Enhanced?”

Simply put, it makes the products work better, making them more effective.  Enzymes are necessary catalysts for healthy chemical reactions inside the body. Enzymes are protein based substances that bind with other nutrients that bring about changes in the body by speeding up tasks such as digesting food, absorbing nutrients, and maintaining and repairing tissue. More than 2,000 different enzymes play an active role in digestion and many other important bodily functions.

Enzymes work together in perfect harmony with other necessary nutrients called co-factors such as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and phytochemicals. Nature's perfect complex requires all of the other team players to be present or the game does not happen. That may be the biggest reason why supplementing with synthetic vitamins and not whole food vitamins, herbs, or supplementing with various other nutrients alone does not work. No single nutrient without the others will be the single magic bullet. Nature is more complex than this. So, enzymes without co-factors will have no activity.

Our EDS™ (Enzyme Delivery System) supplies the enzymes necessary to improve nutrient benefits.


Isn’t Taking Supplements Enough for Good Health ?

Not if your body cannot utilize the supplements that are taken. The vitamins, minerals and key ingredients require that enzymes act on them in order to release their beneficial powers. If the body is unable to supply those necessary enzymes in the proper quantities at the proper time, the vitamins minerals and herbs simply become inert materials and pass unused through your body. Enzymes are responsible for digestion, absorption, transporting, metabolizing, and eliminating. Again, every organ, every tissue, and all the 100 trillion cells in our body depends upon the reaction of enzymes and their energy factor. Professional Botanicals formulas are enzyme enhanced with a proprietary blend of enzymes (EDS™) to improve the body's ability to absorb these powerful formulas.

How Were the Formulas Derived?

These product lines [Professional Botanicals & Dynamic Nutrition Associates (DNA Labs)] were created for Practitioners. These lines wer founded with the sole mission of providing the best researched products available to support the quest for optimum health and genetic potential through nutrition. In 1980, the research was primarily outside the United States and required “knowing the right people" to access this research. Having those connections and accessing this research took over a year before the first product was available on the market.

 

Are They Clinically Tested?

Yes. For over 30 years, the development of these product lines (Professional Botanicals and Dynamic Nutrition Associates) has been built upon a bedrock of forward-thinking scientific research and development. Potential new products and materials are critically evaluated, initially being assessed by independent research findings and then through an intensive in-house development program. Finally the products are further evaluated in an independent clinical setting.
