The Importance of PhytoZymetm Base...
Robert Lemon, R.PH., President and Co-Founder of Life Plus
More and more Life Plus Members are experiencing benefits of Life Plus Supplements. Academic communities are looking closer at what is really in food and are continually finding new phytonutrients. It is front page news almost every week about another valuable phytonutrient being found. Maybe there really was some reason our mothers kept telling us to eat our vegetables when we were kids? Maybe they knew intuitively what our modern day scientists are now beginning to realize?
As a Life Plus Member, you are part of the major Paradigm Shift taking place in health and nutrition. Life Plus began including many different phytonutrients in our products years ago. As researchers are learning more about phytonutrients and the incredible positive impact they have on our health, we are even more convinced we were and still are correct about this issue.
Scientists call them “phytochemicals,” and when discussing nutritional science, we call them “phytonutrients.” What are they anyway? The term “phyto” is used in botany and herbal science to label any substance coming from plants. Of course, “nutrient” means “a component of a food that has nutritional value.” So then, phytonutrients are substances from plants that have nutritional value. Technically, vitamins and minerals come from plants, so they could be considered to be phytonutrients. However, phytonutrients go beyond vitamins and minerals—they are more obscure and are present in much smaller amounts and usually have a more profound effect on our metabolism.
One major advantage of phytonutrients is their ability to help prevent cancer and other diseases. Some examples include
The only place you can obtain these phytonutrients is from fruits and vegetables in your diet. We know this, and we know that many people hardly ever eat many vegetables at all. And most people only have access to the ones that are commercially grown, stored, shipped and stored again. Most all of our vegetables are hybridized to look good, store well and produce high yields. Our soils are depleted of many of the important trace elements and other nutrients and are loaded with synthetic chemicals from commercial fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides. Then we cook them to death. The long and short of all of this is that we just don’t receive the level and selection of phytonutrients that we did decades ago. As a matter of fact, many researchers now believe this is one reason we are plagued with so many diseases today.
Most all of the Life Plus formulas contain a broad spectrum of many of these phytonutrients. This is a tremendous “extra fringe benefit you get when you take Life Plus supplements.” You will notice on many of our labels this statement: “Formulated in the proprietary PhytoZyme base of special herbs, synergistic phytonutrient co-factors and plant enzymes for bioavailability.” We have selected low temperature dried fruit and vegetable concentrates from almost thirty different fruits, vegetables and herbs because of their phytonutrient content and have included them in our proprietary tablet base. In addition, our PhytoZyme Base contains bromelain enzyme from pineapple stem and papayotin enzyme from papaya fruit to aid in breaking down the protein environment around the tablet to help ensure bioavailabilty of all the nutrients in the tablets.
The net result of all this amounts to another important Plus from Life Plus. And, it is a major reason that people notice so much increased benefits when they take our supplements over others. The PhytoZyme tablet base is one way many people can obtain at least some of the phytonutrients they would not otherwise obtain from their diets. We do not disclose all of the individual components of our unique PhytoZyme base because it is proprietary, but we can state that they are plant concentrates that have been selected for their phytonutrient content, economics and availability. They support better nutritional health and are one reason that Life Plus supplements stand head and shoulders above all others.
