Food Nutrient Series

During our recent Food Nutrient Series webinar, Dr. Massoud Arvanghi, PhD, a protein food matrix scientist and researcher leading this technology reminded us how important this supplement asset can be in your healthcare practitioner toolbox. He provided a look deeper into the science behind the Food Nutrient Series line to show you why it stands out from others, and when to deploy them in your therapy plans.

The story begins with a 1937 Nobel Prize – awarded to Albert Gyorgyi for isolating crystalline ascorbic acid. Later, working at the same university, Dr. Andrew Szalay became fascinated by the fact that impurities tangled with ascorbic acid actually seemed to improve its absorption characteristics. As the race to isolate more crystalline nutrients unfolded, it became clearer to Dr. Szalay that these isolates actually needed help to return to an ‘impure’ food matrix suitable for efficient assimilation pathways. In his university work, and later at a new company called GROW, he dedicated his expertise to optimizing this method of nutrient delivery. For over 25 years Dr. Szalay and Dr. Arvanghi have continued to develop new methods for advancing the delivery of biological efficacy in a broadening list of essential vitamins and minerals. In many cases, assimilation of the dose can be as high as 80 per cent and this greatly reduces the practice of mega-dosing potentially toxic trace minerals to garner an effect.

Mr. Eric Llewellyn has been a longtime nutritional and health research advisor for Bristol Cancer Care Center, for GROW and for our team here at Biomed. Eric’s best formulation ideas have come from observing serious patient care needs in hospital settings and translating that knowledge into finding better ways to deliver efficacy. The refined concept has actuallybeen to incorporate the nutrient in a selected carrier matrix; often proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, enzymes, glyco-protiens, bioflavinoids and phospholipids are among components in the resultant food matrix. The strategy has been in use and under continued refinement for decades and so far there are no reports of any toxicity or side effects.

When a nutrient is part of a suitable food matrix it can participate in active transport mechanisms. This means the entire matrix can be identified, utilized and/or stored without expenditure of cellular energy to transform the raw crystalline mineral for portability or utility. Most vitamin and mineral supplements utilize passive transport mechanisms.

High doses are required because they diffuse their way into and out of cells. When high doses are required to deliver metabolically useful concentrations of nutrients to cells via passive transport , the prospect for toxic effects rises.

Food Nutrient Series vitamins and minerals help you to deliver high efficacy without excessive dose and risk of toxicity or product waste through excretion. The patented processes used at GROW to create these food matrix molecules is a result of decades of process refinement and testing.
