ESSENTIALS4ALL BIO-8-Powder, a Bio-enhanced, organic, whole-food concentrate, contains all of the vitamins and minerals necessary to support the easy absorption and utilization of calcium.
All eight ingredients in BIO-8 are essential vitamins and minerals meaning that the body must get these nutrients from food or supplements. The body cannot produce these nutrients on its own.
BIO-8-Powder and BIO-8-Capsules contain exactly the same ingredients.
Calcium is needed by the body for healthy bones, muscles, nervous system, and heart. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. Most of the calcium in your body is found in bones and teeth, while the remaining calcium is spread among blood, nerves, body tissues, and other body fluids. Because calcium is the body’s most abundant mineral, it is also the most essential.
Magnesium is key to the body’s proper use and assimilation of calcium, and other essential nutrients. Without sufficient magnesium, the excess calcium in our body may become toxic, causing painful conditions. Magnesium is as important as calcium in order to maintain healthy bones. In addition, magnesium is responsible for more than 300 biochemical reactions, all necessary for optimum health. The main reason for constipation is the lack of magnesium. Magnesium plays a vital role in digestion, elimination, energy production, muscle contraction and relaxation, bone formation, and cell division. In addition, magnesium is a key nutrient in the proper functioning of the heart, the kidneys, the adrenals, and the entire nervous system.
Magnesium oxide is magnesium that has been bonded with oxygen which is designed to gently release oxygen into the body to facilitate the removal of diseased and dying cells and to cleanse and purify the intestines. This oxygen is made bio-available to the stomach which is 40 percent more efficient assimilating oxygen as the lungs are.
Methyl Sulfonyl Methane, an organic sulfur, plays an essential role in the production of glutathione one of the most important antioxidants that your body produces. MSM is beneficial to bone health; it increases the cells' capability of flushing out excess fluids and toxins; it produces collagen and keratin, both of which are vital for healthy skin, hair, and nails, and is a natural energy booster.
Vitamin C is an essential, water-soluble vitamin, meaning that your body doesn’t store it; therefore, it must be taken daily. The vitamin C in BIO-8 is real vitamin C, grown in a culture. It is not ascorbic acid which is a synthetic vitamin C. Vitamin C’s many functions: builds immunity; an antihistamine; an antioxidant; heals wounds; produces collagen; protects against bacteria, viruses, fungus, infections; lowers blood pressure; lowers cholesterol; lowers lead toxicity; excellent for weight control; reduces stress; improves vision, as well as protecting against cataracts; prevents cells from DNA damage and the development of active cancer cells; regulates sugar levels; benefits the skin and hair by protecting the skin from sunlight exposure, and improves hair growth, as well as preventing hair loss; maintains connective tissue, bones, and blood vessels; protects the heart, kidneys, liver, and all major organs from disease; protects against autoimmune diseases…just to name a few of the functions of vitamin C.
Alpha lipoic acid is an immune builder and an antioxidant. It is found in every cell of the body and turns glucose into energy. As an antioxidant, it attacks free radicals. Free radicals are waste products created when the body turns food into energy. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions, damaging cells, organs, and tissues, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. Alpha lipoic acid is a free-radical fighter, and because Alpha lipoic acid is both fat-soluble and water-soluble, it works throughout the entire body.
Vitamin E is a oil-soluble vitamin¸ meaning the body stores it in the liver and uses it as needed. It is a powerful antioxidant and plays a role in anti-inflammatory processes and immune enhancement.
CoEnzymeQ10 is a combination of a vitamin and an enzyme. It functions as an antioxidant, protecting the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. The body produces CoQ10; it is found in every cell of the body. Coenzymes work to digest food, and the cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance, and to protect skeletal muscles. It is essential for the heart. For dogs it is absolutely essential for protecting against heartworm.
CLO-3 and BIO-8 are a team; in order for each of them to be complete and balanced, they each must be given. The reasons they are in two separate bottles are: 1) BIO-8 contains vitamin E, and CLO-3 contains vitamin D. If both are given at the same time they inhibit one another. 2) CLO-3 is best taken in its natural oil form, rather than go through additional processing of being dried into a powder.
BIO-8 is to be mixed in with food, and CLO-3 is to be given with salted butter later in the day as a treat. It is their Butter Sandwich.
You may prefer to take the BIO-8-Capsules because the powder isn’t all that palatable for most of us. BIO-8 is mainly minerals; it does not dissolve in water; it takes the stomach acids to break it down.
The BIO-8-Capsules can be taken with or without food, because the ingredients are food. There are no synthetic vitamins in my formula.
Anyone under 40 with general good health will need 4 BIO-8-Capsules daily. 40 to 60: 6 Capsules daily. Over 60: 8 Capsules daily.
If you sleep well, then the BIO-8 can be taken at any time. If you do not sleep well, my suggestion is to take your BIO-8 about an hour before bed time. In that case, take your CLO-3 in the morning.
It is essential that people take the CLO-3 soft gels as well for the same above reasons…BIO-8 & CLO-3 are a team.
