I'm almost ashamed to claim a "product" is doing me so much good -- it just reeks of quacks and shills on late-night television, telling insomniacs that buying some kitchen gadget will revolutionize their lives.
The history of this blog includes occasional reports on how certain supplements have promoted or compromised my sense of well-being. Apart from saying that B Right contains the forms of folate, etc that are particularly good for poor methylators like me, or that i find T-100 is a better thyroid-support supplement than ordinary raw products, i usually don't name names. Here comes an exception.
Since getting back from the "low-carb cruise," i've been using a twice-a-day multi-vitamin created by a doctor (and his wife) who spoke this year as well as last. They offered a special deal to attendees, and since it sounded like it could reduce the sheer number of pills i have to take (and reduce the clutter on my bathroom counter!) i decided to give it a try. I LIKE IT. I REALLY like it.
The "gimmick" of Nutreince is that certain vitamins and minerals work together, and others compete for absorption -- i knew this before, which made the sales pitch more credible. Some are better to take in the morning, and some in the evening, too. Some conventional vitamin pills, additionally, resist breaking down at the right time, or contain ingredients which inhibit absorption. Nutreince also takes these shortcomings into account by coming in a powder form that is to be mixed with liquid before ingestion, and not containing the waxes and binders that reduce efficiency.
I'll either have to eat liver more often or continue to buy iron and copper, because those two minerals are not included. Otherwise, it's all in there. If i use their good-tasting whey powder too, i can even stop buying glutathione, as it contains a healthy dose. Imagine -- being able to travel without a train-case full of pill-bottles....
But, do you want to hear the "shocker"? I'M LESS HUNGRY. Smaller portions satisfy me these days. THIS is why i named this post what i did -- i believe i'm absorbing the nutrients in Nutreince better than i was my old formulations.
The stuff IS expensive, but i've been spending a young fortune on supplements for some time -- i think it's actually going to be competitive.
WOW. ...And i'm sorry for sounding like an info-mercial.
