Description:

SOURCE is based on the famous SONA study; a 15 year, multimillion dollar study of 13,500 male and female subjects living in six regions of the United States. The study was conducted by Dr Emanual Cheraskin and Dr. W.M. Ringdorf Jr. of the University Of Alabama School Of Medicine. The study attempted to find the “Suggested Optimum Nutrient Allowance’ (SONA); necessary to maintain good health throughout one’s lifetime. The results of that research, plus the results of other studies conducted over the years, form the foundation for the formula.

SOURCE uses Amino Acid Chelated minerals for their superior bio-availability over inorganic mineral forms such as carbonates or oxides. For a more complete description, see the article Amino Acid Chelated Minerals.

SOURCE is the first research based multiple-nutrient formula that supplies all the essential vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals at the optimum levels necessary to maintain good health over one’s lifetime.

SOURCE uses Vitamin K2VITAL, with higher bio-availability and bio-activity compared to Vitamin K1, and with substantial greater stability than other forms of Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 regulates calcium in the body, supporting good bone health and cardiovascular health.

SOURCE incorporates plant enzymes to aid in the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats and to improve the absorption of the essential nutrients, making the formula the most bio-available and effective possible.

SOURCE incorporates a base of organic “Superfoods”; alfalfa grass juice powder, kelp powder, organic spirulina and citrus bioflavonoids. These “Superfoods” provide a myriad of micronutrients, enzymes and anti- oxidants that enhance the activity of the formula, making it truly in a class of its own.

SOURCE is provided in four tablets to be taken twice a day with meals. It is well established that divided doses provide a higher percentage of nutrients to the bloodstream over the day than a single larger dose. In other words, two tablets in the morning with breakfast and two tablets in the evening with dinner offer more substantial benefit than if all four tablets were taken at one time.

SOURCE is manufactured using state-of-the-art, heat-free, solvent-free technology which guarantees that none of the fragile nutrients are denatured or destroyed during the manufacturing process.

Note: for a complete description of the SONA study, read our SONA article.
