1. Look for high quality, crystalline, freeform, amino acids (Amino Acids). Most amino acid blends on the market are actually reduced milk or soy proteins. These may contain small quantities of free form Amino Acids but are mostly comprised of whole proteins and peptides. Proteins and peptides are Amino Acids that are linked together in chains and must first be broken down into single Amino Acids by the digestive process in order for the body to create usable systemic proteins. Freeform Amino Acids are single amino acids, which need no digestion. They are, in essence, predigested and ready to form all the enzymes needed for optimal food digestion. When food is properly digested, the body will make all the substances it needs for excellent health. The primary culprit in many chronic disease conditions is insufficient digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. This may start with symptoms such as nausea, bloating, burping, high cholesterol, or low or high blood sugars. Incomplete digestion leads to a severe lack of systemic protein, which weakens the immune system and culminates in disease. When whole proteins or partial proteins (peptides) remain undigested they will enter the system in an unusable state and float around causing problems (such as rashes, sinusitis and other allergic responses.) Free form Amino Acids, on the other hand, can be used to create enzymes, hormones, muscle tissue, nervous tissue, etc. upon demand where and when the body needs them. So beware of that bottle of 'Free Form Amino Acids' that you find in the health food store. One sure fire test: if it is not a pure white powder in capsules, it is probably a reduced soy or milk protein. Platinum Plus Essential Amino Acids are the highest quality pharmaceutical grade free form Amino Acids, absolutely guaranteed.
2. Look for a properly balanced blend of essential Amino Acids. Even if the amino acids are pharmaceutical grade free form Amino Acids, they will stop benefiting the body after a short period of time, if they are not properly balanced. Most Amino Acid formulas on the market will stop being beneficial to the body after 3-6 months time. This is because of the way that Amino Acids work in the body, if there is too little or too much of any one, all the rest of the Amino Acids will be limited in there effectiveness due to the imbalance. Although you may feel significantly better for a while, an unbalanced Amino Acid blend will 1) not work indefinitely and, 2) it will never have the balance needed to strengthen the immune system to the point where it can overcome disease. A perfectly balanced blend of essential Amino Acids will allow the body to create unessential Amino Acids, as well as exactly the right kind and right amount of enzymes to properly digest food so that it can create the substances needed to heal and maintain the body. Years of research and testing went into creating the perfect balance in Platinum Plus Essential Amino Acids. This testing proved that Platinum Plus allows the immune system to overcome disease and heal the body. This is due to the quality and balance of the Amino Acid blend.
3. Look for extra added sulfur and molybdenum to support the liver. When the body begins to heal itself it starts getting rid of all the toxins, bacteria, viruses and metals that it has stored in the tissues. All these things must first run through the liver (the body's poison filter) on their way out of the body. Sulfur (this is a natural element, not the same as sulfonamides which are the group of sulfa drugs to which many people are allergic) and molybdenum help flush the liver in a process called 'phase two detoxification.' Platinum Plus Essential Amino Acids have the extra sulfur and molybdenum to ensure the liver has the help it needs to remove toxins from the body.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate Fail 50% of the time!
Dr. David Williams, internationally-recognized authority on joint pain, recently reversed his 12 year position on glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates and their effectiveness in joint pain, such as occur in the hips, fingers, neck, back, from a positive to a decided negative. He states that "New studies, I bet your friendly vitamin shop clerk won't tell you about now, prove that glucosamine and chondroitin have up to a 50% "failure rate!"
Our tests have shown that it can be over 70% Failure! We will shortly tell you the reasons. Dr. Williams continues, G&C don't work fast enough, are only TWO of many compounds found in the joints, have large molecules and are hard to digest. Over 40 this gets worse, and therefore may never get to your joints ever! "Millions of bottles of this have been sold in the last two years, making it one of the biggest money makers in supplement history." We believe that it is one of the biggest rip-offs in supplement history!
What Dr. Williams and most of the other doctors of the World do not know is that the problem is a protein/sulfur deficiency that comes from 90% of the population not being able to digest their protein in the first place! We discovered this way back in the early 80s!
When you can't breakdown the sulfur bearing amino acids in foods you can't get the sulfur "unlocked" and even if you did you would not have "protein carriers" to get the sulfur to the tissues. We solved this problem with the Platinum Essential Amino Acids Plus which starts rebuilding the spinal disks and other cartilages in 10 hours! We think it is at least 100 times better and has been for the last few years! See our case histories - these are not "claims" but cases!
Acid Reflux Disease
Acid reflux disease (GERD) has been brought into the spotlight by the pharmaceutical companies. This is a good thing. They present their products as a person's only hope of controlling or healing this condition. Relief is a good thing but regardless of their inability to know the hidden causes it ends up as a bad thing because they do not encourage further research into causes.
In my career as a holistic chiropractic physician (50 years +) we treated thousands of people and many had this condition mostly incidental to their primary complaints. We were able to clear them all of their distress. We were able to identify the root causes which were malfunctioning nerves to the stomach, diaphragm, and esophagus. The tests we used were standard in Applied Kinesiology and some developed from this by me. They are primarily the BEV Tests and the CCT Tests (Confirmatory Challenge Tests) - which enabled us to identify diskal (spinal) lesions beyond any method known today (See US patent 6,203,820).
The nutrition that we use for the treatment of spinal disks (Healing Program 3) is usually all that is necessary to heal this condition, but many times, after two weeks it is necessary to correct the spinal distortions usually found in the spinal column (Dorsal spine). So you see this is first a nutritional condition which is primarily a protein digestive problem (but there are other factors addressed in the complete back pain package) and our Platinum Essential Amino Acids Plus is the primary answer.
