This Men’s 50+ formula provides the full range of nutrients needed to support the demands of physical stress, dietary limitations and/or metabolic inefficiencies. It contains the essential vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to address the complex needs of mature men.
The Men’s 50+ bioenergetic formula contains optimum levels of over 20 vitamins and minerals, along with the added benefit of a wide array of enzymes, antioxidants, and polyphenols from Farm Fresh Factors™ and other whole food sources.
It is made from the highest quality organic ingredients and contains the proper ratios of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to energize, provide relief from stress, protect against organ degeneration, and aid in the prevention of chronic diseases that commonly affect men. Suboptimal intake of nutrients is common for older men and is a risk factor for developing cognitive decline and heart disease, so our Men’s 50+ formula contains critical brain and heart-healthy nutrients such as B3, B6, folic acid, calcium, and magnesium to support healthy homocysteine, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels, and to reduce oxidative stress. It contains no gluten, soy, or corn and is completely suitable for vegans.
Several companies market versions of what they refer to as “whole-food” vitamins. Most of the nutrients in supplements marketed as whole-food are produced by mixing (USP) vitamins and minerals with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) sugar or molasses in a big tank. After some amount of time has passed (usually 12 – 24 hours), the yeast is killed off and the material is dried off. By contrast, Whole Earth & Sea formulas use Farm Fresh Factors™ as well as other whole food sources and raw processes these nutrient-dense plants using our proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology, yielding a concentrated biomass of bioenergetic vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients.
The EnviroSimplex technology liquefies and mixes all raw materials in a special chamber where the bio-activation process occurs, allowing enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotics help to culture the ingredients. Then it deploys gentle agitation and gentle heat under high vacuum to extract moisture, preserve the active ingredients, shorten drying times, and protect sensitive phytonutrients. We ensure the processing temperature always stays below 48°C (118°F).
Phytonutrients (also referred to as phytochemicals) are natural compounds found in plant based whole foods that give plants their rich pigment, as well as their distinctive taste and smell. Research suggests that nutrients from whole, raw food may have a valuable holistic effect that allows key vitamins and minerals to work more effectively. EnviroSimplex intensifies each 100-g of living, whole food into a 300-milligram, enzymatically vibrant biomass.
Farm Fresh Factors™ starts with 100 grams of fresh raw plants, processed using our EnviroSimplex® method to retain and intensify the total goodness of whole food into 300 mg of vibrant enzymatically rich living food. The Farm Fresh Factors™ contains:
