Emerald Laboratories - Specific Health FormulasEmerald Labs Additive-free Supplements

Formulated by Dr. Mark Stengler, Author of "Prescription for Natural Cures."

All products used by Dr. Stengler in his medical practice in La Jolla, CA where he does blood panels on his patients thereby validating the effectiveness of the formulas.
• Condition-Specific

  • Gluten-Free
  • Vegan and/or Vegetarian
  • Vegetable Capsules
  • Therapeutic Doses with Clinical Results
  • AND...

    Raw Whole Food Based (This does NOT mean "fermented or food-sourced vitamins"). We put sprout powders (never heated above 98 degrees), a broad-spectrum plant based digestive enzyme blend, 200 million cfu's of Acidophilus and 200 million cfu's of B. Bifidum PER SERVING in EVERY EMERALD FORMULA. We also put fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) in every formula as a prebiotic. Studies have clearly indicated the FOS increases the bio-mass of good bacteria in the small and large intestine.*

    We use PURE coenzymes of the key B Vitamins in many of our formulas; there is no game playing by listing the conventional form and coenzyme form in parenthesis and then putting the coenzyme form in the second position where you typically are only getting 1% of the "good stuff".

    We are currently one of the ONLY COMPANIES in health food stores using PURE coenzyme folic acid (L-5 Methyl Tetrahydrofolate) in our products. We use this form exclusively in our B Healthy and ALL of our Multis. This form is rarely found outside
    of professional, clinical lines.

    Why being "Additive-Free" is important

    Being the "Additive-Free Company" means that we use NO additives and NO excipients in ANY of our products.

    Additives generally have little or no nutritive value. The objective of taking a dietary supplement is for the herbs or nutrients to break down and be utilized by our bodies. Additives do not generally facilitate this process. In fact, some individuals feel that additives can actually hinder this process.

    The best nutritional supplements promote the quick uptake by the body of the nutrients they possess. They do this by being in a form that the body can easily assimilate so it can access the herb or nutrient and expose it to processes that will ultimately lead to the nutrient taking part in cellular metabolism. While some people are sensitive and may react allergically to certain additives, the most unfortunate fact regarding additives is that some additives have been shown in preliminary in vitro studies to possess possible harmful effects.

    "Additives" and why should you try to avoid them?

    Additives include:
    Binders, which are glue-like substances used to form powdered nutrients into tablets, flowing agents and lubricants, which are used to assist the flow of nutrients through the manufacturing process, fillers, which are additives possessing a "fluffy" quality that make capsules look uniformly full, as well as coloring agents, coatings and glazes.

    Some of the Common Additives and Excipients Used in Manufacturing are as Follows:

    Stearic Acid – A binder typically used in the manufacturing of tablets. This ingredient is not typically used in the manufacturing of capsules.

    Magnesium Stearate – A lubricant typically used in the manufacturing of tablets and capsules. There is research indicating that stearic acid and magnesium stearate both possess "T-Cell Inhibiting" characteristics and other adverse effects. Studies available upon request. Please note that some companies state "vegetable lubricant" on their labels; this IS magnesium stearate.

    Silicon Dioxide – A flowing agent typically used in the manufacturing of tablets and capsules.

    Croscarmellose Sodium – A disintegrating agent typically used in the manufacturing of tablets so that they effectively break down in the stomach. Disintegration tests are usually performed in the laboratory to verify that the tablets dissolve within thirty minutes in water.

    Microcrystalline Cellulose – A cellulose-based filler typically used in the manufacturing of tablets and capsules. This material is typically bleached and refined.

    Rice Flour – A filler typically used in the manufacturing of capsules. This material is typically bleached and refined. It is most often used because it is much cheaper than brown rice flour and most companies want a filler that is white.

    At Ultra Laboratores we are committed to what we believe
    All Ultra Laboratories products are produced at our own cGMP-Certified Facility in Carson, CA where we can control and protect our prodcuts from start to finish. Ultra Laboratories also has its own "in-house" laboratory where all raw ingredients are tested including testing finished goods for any microbial or pathogenic contamination as well as for lead.
