optimal 2 vitamin mineral
THE WHOLE FAMILY DAILY SUPPLEMENT

What is the source of vitamins in Optimal 2 Vitamin/Mineral?
Optimal 2’s Whole Food Vitamin Blend contains over 20 vitamin-rich foods that are all guaranteed chemical and pesticide free. These foods are cultured along with vitamin extracts from other foods in a probiotic and enzyme media. This creates a high potency whole food vitamin.
How does the number of vitamins in Optimal 2 compare to the RDA or RDI?
We use only whole foods as a source of vitamins in our Optimal 2 Whole Food Vitamin • Mineral supplement. There is a difference between whole foods and high potency synthetics, and your body knows it. Test animals on a high potency enriched diet do not live as long as those on the same low vitamin diet without enrichment. The apparent benefits derived from laboratory made vitamins are short-lived and after time benefits actually reverse. Natural food complex supplements are typically of a low dose until now. The effects of natural and synthetic are completely different. The dosages have no relationship on a comparative basis. In an article on nutrition, the author asked the question, "Would you rather take 100% of a substance that takes away life or 5% of a substance that adds life". The exciting news about our Whole Food Vitamin Mineral formula is that you get 100% of the RDA and it is from whole food forms and are completely safe.
Why use organic minerals?
Optimal nutrition is not just a properly balanced intake of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water. These nutrients must be readily absorbable and bio-available; otherwise, they are nothing more than waste material. Only bio-available minerals enter and enhance the body’s metabolic processes and contribute to the maintenance and production of healthy tissues. Some forms of minerals are more bioavailable than others. It is possible to combine specific amino acids with other factors, such as enzymes and probiotics, so that the resulting formula can cross the intestinal barrier and target specific tissues. This clearly demonstrates the methodology for formulating nutritional supplements to ensure that they will be transported directly to the tissues. Amino acids can be formulated for delivery to one or more specific tissue sites within a mammal. The patent for this unique formulating method is extremely broad, well supported, scientifically researched and is completely scientifically based. The patented organic minerals used exclusively in all of the OHS formulations have demonstrated superior bio-availability and are more absorbable than other forms of minerals. This formula provides 100% of the RDA utilizing higher absorbed organic minerals.
Can children take Optimal 2?
Yes, as long as the child is able to swallow. If not, the capsules can easily be opened to mix in with applesauce or added to a shake. Recommended use for children is 1-2 capsules daily.
I am allergic to some whole foods; will this formula give me a reaction?
Allergies arise when the body is unable to break a substance down. These undigested substances circulate throughout the body and are considered unusable and foreign. The body’s natural defense is to clear them from the body by way of the immune system, creating a reaction. Many people find that even though they may have had a reaction in the past to certain vegetables, they have no problem taking Optimal 2. Optimal 2 contains the Opti-Blend™ Delivery System that is made of a blend of enzymes and minerals to enhance the complete digestion of nutrients within the product. It is a guarantee that each ingredient is broken down to its usable form.
What is the vitamin content in Optimal 2?
The vitamins (A, B, C, E, and K) were calculated based on the amounts typically found in the listed food source. Because these vitamins come from food they outperform other vitamin
