Can We Do Better?

For all the so-called benefits attributed to isolated and synthetic nutrients and all of the progress we think we have made in improving the health of the nation, there are many health experts who say we can do even better. They note that three of four Americans will develop heart disease and half will die from it. Diabetes is striking baby boomers with a vengeance. About six percent of our population presently has diabetes and many gerontologists believe that percentage will increase significantly as the boomers enter their fifties and sixties. (And they say that diet and nutrition will be crucial to helping persons with diabetes maintain their health and reduce their risk of complications.) Already, some 21 million pre-diabetic Americans experience glucose intolerance, leading to Syndrome X, a condition characterized by high blood pressure and obesity. Some 200,000 Americans die every year from high blood pressure and stroke. One-third of Americans are obese. To get a better picture of what this means in pure numbers of mortality, our current health crisis can be computed into airline crashes; for the number of deaths resulting from heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes, you would have 3,650 jumbo jet crashes a year, assuming there are 300 sickly passengers on each jet, 3,000 people a day dying from heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes alone. Synthetic or isolated nutrients may be better than nothing, but not good enough. Adding them to whole food concentrates is better but still not the way to get our optimal health back.

Can Living Multi Help?

One of the answers might well be Living Multi. This vitamin and mineral formulation takes us way past USP, food-based or even so-called whole food vitamin and mineral products. It takes us back to a more primitive form of nutrition, one paradoxically far more sophisticated and wondrous in its nutritional offering and health benefits than your typical multi vitamin. Achieving Maximum Health With The 3-3-9 Plan
We like to use the 3-3-9 plan to explain some of the functional aspects. The key to achieving optimal health can be accomplished by doing three things:

  1. Supercharge Cellular Nutrition. As we will show below, the nutrients in LM are far more able to interact at the cellular level to provide body-ready nutrients where you need them most. Simply forcing larger amounts of nutrients is not the answer. The answer lies in the delivery of these nutrients across the cell wall where we need them most.
  2. Facilitate Detoxification. Living Multi’s homeostatic nutrient complexes aids the body’s detoxifications processes like no other multiple vitamin and mineral formula, reducing the overall toxic load, neutralizing subacute microbial infestations, and even aiding removal of poisons such as xenobiotics and heavy metals from our internal environment. Living Multi with it’s naturally occurring blend of probiotics, enzymes and organic acids enhances the body’s elimination of wastes through the normal elimination channels such as the kidneys and bowels.
  3. Reduce Oxidative Stress. The free radical theory of aging, although long taken for granted, is best achieved through a high intake of antioxidant or free radical fighting nutrients. Free radical damage or oxidative stress has been implicated in no less than 60 health disorders. This powerful multi vitamin contains optimal doses of the most effective antioxidants known to man and yet to be discovered.

By bolstering cellular nutrition, facilitating detoxification and reducing oxidative stress and damage, we may be able to reduce the risk factors for three of our most deadly diseases:

1) Modify risk factors for Cancer. Now striking greater than one in three Americans, epidemiological studies indicate that without a doubt your cancer risk at any age is not fixed. By feeding cells protective nutrients, and detoxifying the body from harmful fat soluble toxins, your risk can be modified.
2) Reduce risk factors for Heart disease. The combination of effective levels of B-6, B-12 and folic acid, contained in Living Multi™ can help lower elevated homocysteine levels, a key to reducing cardiovascular disease risk.
3) Reduce risk factors for Diabetes. Restoring the body’s ability to utilize insulin (insulin sensitivity) with the mineral- and enzyme-rich homeostatic nutrient complexes in Living Multi™ – especially the potent botanicals such as reishi and other tonic mushrooms, Rhododendron caucasicum and Caucasian blueberry leaf; help reduce sugar cravings, thereby lowering blood sugar and preventing diabetic-related syndromes.

With Living Multi™ we also accomplish nine essential functional health goals:

  1. Modulate Immune System Function. Among the most important immune modulators in Living Multi™ is the blend of 11 medicinal mushrooms. The entire blend provides powerful adaptogenic qualities that allow the body to more capably handle environmental and psychological stresses.
  2. Promote Optimal Digestion. Living Multi’s™ homeostatic nutrient complexes support the body’s digestive processes with live beneficial probiotics, enzymes and organic acids. This aids in the body’s absorption of nutrients.
  3. Control Blood Sugar. The addition of Caucasian blueberry and apple skin, as well as ionized trace minerals and many thousands of other phytochemicals present in the formula promote optimal blood sugar balance.
  4. Improve Energy and Performance. The combination of nutrients present in green foods and medicinal mushrooms as well as the highly absorbable B-Vitamins and over 80 trace elements in Living Multi™, unlock stored energy in the body and make it available to us.
  5. Reduce risk factors of age-related neurodegeneration. The powerful antioxidant complexes contained in Living Multi™ have been shown to reverse age-related neuro-degeneration in animals.
  6. Reduce risk factors for obesity. Normalizing blood sugar by increasing insulin sensitivity and eliminating glucose intolerance is perhaps one of the most important factors in reducing food cravings, thus reducing caloric intake and weight gain. The Russian botanical Rhododendron caucasicum has been shown in studies to enhance fat burning and prevent the absorption of excess dietary fat.
  7. Reduce stress and improve emotional well being. One particular green grass in the Living Multi ™ vegetable blend, oat grass, is a nervine tonic, meaning that it is nourishing and strengthening to the nervous system, useful in nervous exhaustion, stress, and depression.
  8. Lessen allergic responses. By enhancing nutritional uptake, reducing inflammation, modulating immune function, facilitating proper detoxification and providing optimal antioxidant protection, Living Multi™ reduces the allergic response common in so many individuals prone to allergies. It also helps to reduce gut hyper-permeability (leaky gut syndrome), further lessening the incidence of allergies.
  9. Reduce inflammatory markers. Living Multi’s ™ live probiotic mixture, (including HSOs™) along with turmeric and ginger, has been shown to reduce inflammation. Many nutrients in Living Multi™, including Alpha Lipoic Acid, accomplish the same thing by quenching free-radicals.

Clinical Validation


It might surprise readers to learn that few, if any, multiple vitamin and mineral formulas have ever been clinically studied. Many epidemiological studies (which are always retrospective) have been conducted that show us these may work in general. Thus, the investigational studies that have been underway on Living Multi would seem to make it the most clinically studied multiple vitamin and mineral formula today, surpassing even those from some of the major pharmaceutical companies.

One study now underway is a double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial taking place at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in collaboration with Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.

“From our research and what Garden of Life has gathered, this will be the first multi-nutrient study on humans that looks at multi-nutrient formulas for what they are designed to do,” notes co-investigator Lee B. Dexter, Microbiologist, Food Technologist, Research Scientist and President of Dexter and Associates, a technology and compliance consulting firm in Austin, Texas. “If nearly 70 percent of our country takes a vitamin and mineral or a multi-nutrient of some kind, it is for two reasons: to increase energy and performance and prevent diseases that are created by our poor dietary habits, imbalanced lifestyle and environmental stresses. What was really shocking to me when we first contemplated the Living Multi clinical studies, is that when you look at the peer- reviewed publications that are out there, there is a shocking paucity of studies that have examined whether multiple vitamin and mineral formulas do what they’re supposed to do. And, so, this is truly a premiere study. Living Multi—Join the Healthy Living Revolution.

Living Multi Optimal Formula Testimonies

“I truly believe that the Living Multi is the most comprehensive, bioavailable and truly effective nutritional product to date. Unlike the thousands of multi vitamin products on the market, LM contains highly effective nutrients in therapeutic quantities. A major key to this formula is the fact that the nutrients are in their “body ready” form known as Homeostatic Nutrient Complexes. These nutrients are extremely active in the body as they contain essential naturally occurring enzymes, amino acids, probiotics, antioxidants and organic acids. This formulation contains the widest variety and highest potency of antioxidant nutrients available including a potent blend of whole food carotenoids, alpha-lipoic acid and extracts of the premier longevity foods found in the diets of the World’s healthiest people such as Rhododendron caucasicum, Caucasian Blueberry Leaves, Pomegranate, and Mountain Apple. Also contained are potent extracts from two of the most exciting botanical categories, medicinal mushrooms and ocean vegetables. Most importantly, it has has been clinically studied verifying it’s efficacy. This I have not seen in any other product of it’s kind.” Zakir Ramazanov, PhD, Professor of Plant Biochemistry

“After using LM for only two short weeks I can attest to it’s effectiveness. I have noticed a marked improvement in energy. My appetite and cravings have definitely lessened. My sleep quality has dramatically improved as has my stress level. A great side benefit has been an improvement in elimination.” W.T. Wellington, FL

“Living Multi has been a great addition to my already healthy diet. I have always considered myself to be sensitive to any supplement, but it gave me a great sense of calm. My digestion improved resulting in less episodes of heartburn. My energy levels have been great, whereas when I normally come home after a long day of work I just want to plop on the bed and not move. Now, I can immediately clean the house, run errands and start dinner. My sleep quality has also significantly improved.”
