D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition® - Products of Outstanding Quality
The D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® products have been personally designed by Dr Peter J D'Adamo, many of them out of the needs of the D'Adamo Clinic in the USA. He firmly believes that they are amongst the very best currently available to the general public. Below, is just a few reasons why.
A Superior Philosophy of Employment
When you know specific information about your biochemical individuality, using supplements can become much more effective. For example, in blood type A individuals, the absorption of certain minerals is enhanced by pairing them with specific amino acids.
Many supplements have unnecessarily high doses of nutrients, introducing the risk of supplement overdose at one end, and wastefulness at the other. When supplement design is targeted to the individual, it assures not just the effective dose, but rather the proper dose - the minimum amount necessary to do the job.
Dr Peter J D'Adamo has been designing and testing natural products for over three decades. Over the years he has seen many changes; small, artisan-based companies that took pride in their delivery, education and techniques being replaced by corporate systems indistinguishable from any other industry, staffed by people who would just as soon sell you a mobile phone contract. Under these circumstances cost-cutting becomes company policy. But does the cost-cutting lead to loss of quality? Very often. At North American Pharmacal, Inc. (NAP), manufacturers of the D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® range, they just don't think that way. These are the same supplements that Dr D'Adamo gives to his children, prescribes to his patients, and takes himself. Larch is a good example. Most larch products in the marketplace are food-grade, with a high gum content. D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® ARA 6 always uses nutraceutical grade larch.
Quality involves much more than just delivering what is promised on the label. For example, NAP uses a sea-plant derived calcium to make its Phytocal® series of individualised multi-minerals. It is only found in one location in the ocean off the Beara Peninsula, in the South West of Ireland. D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® sea calcium grows for around five years in the crystal clear, pollution-free Atlantic waters, absorbing minerals and nutrients from the sea. The seaweed then falls to the ocean bed, where it becomes calcified. Local tidal patterns wash and gather it into one deep bed, the location of which is known to only a few people. NAP were the first company to market larch arabinogalactan (D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® ARA 6), now a staple of natural immune enhancement, almost twenty years ago.
Education, Not Marketing
Many stores will not stock D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® products because they consider the educational curve 'too steep.' Why spend an hour with a client explaining lectins (and perhaps educating yourself) when the vitamin E and calcium on the shelf just sell themselves? Paul Hopfensperger MIfHI MCMA is a Naturopathic Health Coach and is an IfHI Master Instructor (certified 2013 UK) and IfHI Fellow (certified 2012 UK) cum laude of Dr Peter D'Adamo's Institute for Human Individuality. His company Body and Mind Studio® is one of the few UK based companies qualified to sell D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® products. He and his family are enthusiastic followers of the diet themselves, and you can be sure that he is really interested in taking the time to help people.
Food as Medicine
Studies have repeatedly shown that nutrients work better when kept in their intact form. Vitamin C is a good example: synthetic ascorbic acid is less bioactive than vitamin C extracted from rose hips, and often requires lower doses to do the same job. However, extracting vitamin C from rose hips is quite an expensive process. Many manufacturers use the charade of putting a graphic image of rose hips on the label and advertising that their vitamin C formula is with rose hips, which can mean anything. NAP call this 'pixie dust formulating' - adding a minute amount of an ingredient so it can be mentioned in the ad copy. D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® Proberry formulas give the straight truth: Its vitamin C content is derived from rose hips and other food sources. That's a big difference!
NAP have developed a method to produce stearate-free formulas.There has been much controversy over use of stearates (a form of hydrogenated oil) in the production of nutritional supplements. Stearates, often labeled as magnesium stearate, steric acid, or calcium stearate, are hydrogenated fats, typically cottonseed or palm oil, that are frequently used in factories as lubricants to help the encapsulating machinery run faster and prevent the ingredients from clumping within the capsule.
D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® vegetarian capsules are also completely hypoallergenic, so, no soy, wheat or gluten.
In summary, D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition® will always strive to provide the very highest quality supplements made with the safest, most effective ingredients available.
