FAQ – What are the specific benefits and differences?
Emerald Laboratories – Specific Health Formulas
Formulated by Dr. Mark Stengler, Author of “Prescription for Natural Cures.”
All products used by Dr. Stengler in his medical practice in La Jolla, CA where he does blood panels on his patients thereby validating the effectiveness of the formulas.
��� Vegan and/or Vegetarian
��� Vegetable Capsules
��� Therapeutic Doses with Clinical Results
Raw Whole Food Based (This does NOT mean “fermented or food-sourced vitamins”). We put sprout powders (never heated above 98 degrees), a broad-spectrum plant based digestive enzyme blend, 200 million cfu’s of Acidophilus and 200 million cfu’s of B. Bifidum PER SERVING in EVERY EMERALD FORMULA. We also put fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) in every formula as a prebiotic. Studies have clearly indicated the FOS increases the bio-mass of good bacteria in the small and large intestine.*
We use PURE coenzymes of the key B Vitamins in many of our formulas; there is no game playing by listing the conventional form and coenzyme form in parenthesis and then putting the coenzyme form in the second position where you typically are only getting 1% of the “good stuff”.
We are currently one of the ONLY COMPANIES in health food stores using PURE coenzyme folic acid (L-5 Methyl Tetrahydrofolate) in our products. We use this form exclusively in our B Healthy and ALL of our Multis. This form is rarely found outside
of professional, clinical lines.
Fruitrients – Single Exotic Fruits
Capsules vs. Juices
Exotic fruit juices generally contain 85%-99% water. Lab tests available upon request.
All exotic fruit juices are heated/pasteurized; otherwise, they would release gases due to fermentation in the bottle and would most likely explode.
All of the “active compounds” in exotic fruits are found in the “non” water portion of the fruit. The juices therefore contain somewhat small quantities of the active compounds.
The Fruitrients products should be viewed as “concentrated” forms of the exotic fruits since all of the water has been removed.
Rainforest – Exotic Fruits Formulations
All of the Rainforest product formulations are based upon available clinical data for efficacy. Dr. Stengler heartily endorses these products and uses some of them in his clinic.
Acai Diet and Cleanse and Super Cleanse have been used in a clinical setting with over 80% positive weight loss results.*
Ultra Botanicals – Specific-Ingedient Formulas
One, Two or Three Active Ingredients Only
i.e. CoQ10, Alpha Lipoic, Ginkgo, MSM, Etc.
Although these products are currently available in many different brands, we are one of the very few that has these items Additive-Free.
We use ONLY European Extracts in our Ginkgo, Grapeseed, St. Johns’ Wort and Milk Thistle. This is very important since it is now known that some overseas suppliers are using Class 1 solvents in the production of their botanical extracts.
