Yes you read that correctly - Oligo: The Best Brand of Vitamins on the Market. As of September 25th, 2012, Oligo technology is now protected by a US patent. After reading this, you’ll realize that you’ve been wasting your money on all other products, i.e. Centrum, Natures Made, Sundown, Store Brands, etc.
What is Oligo?
You should know a little about Oligo before we go any further. Basically when a vitamin is ingested, it goes from one extreme environment to the next. The vitamin first enters your stomach, which has a very acidic environment. Soon after entering the stomach the vitamin empties into your small intestine, which isn’t nearly as acidic as the stomach. When vitamins (Centrum, Natures Made, Sundown, etc.) enter your stomach , the highly acidic level damages the chemical structure of the vitamin/mineral which results in a portion of the vitamin being useless. Once the vitamin enters the small intestine, the difference in acidity levels (pH) causes the vitamin to crystalize rendering the vitamin/mineral to be non absorbable. Anything non absorbable passes right through your gastrointestinal tract. The label on your vitamins may indicate that your getting a certain percentage of a vitamin or mineral, however those numbers are vastly inaccurate. You’re only receiving a small fraction of that percentage.
In comes Oligo. Oligo is a technology which helps protect the vitamin or mineral your ingesting from these extreme levels of pH’s making the vitamin/mineral absorb more efficiently. In fact, to quote the manufacture: “Only Oligo binds minerals to organic compounds (amino acids and oligofructose) to mirror the way they are found in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods to maximize solubility.”
In translation this is the result:
Increased solubility = Increased Absorbtion.
or you can say…
Increased absorption = Increased Value.
Of course I have to mention value at this point. When you purchase something you would like to get the most bang for you buck, right?
Well just to put things in perspective, if you’ve been buying Centrum, you can see how much money has been wasted:
Oh Yeah, One More Thing About Oligo..
So you’ve probably heard of oxidation & free radicals. If not, no worries. Oxidation is a process which produces or releases free radicals which in turn causes cell damage in your body. Remember when I mentioned earlier about the vitamin crystalizing in your stomach? Well that crystallization process causes a free radical reaction to occur. These free radicals are released into your intestines, causing direct damage to the cells lining your intestines. By taking non oligo products, your exposing your intestines to this oxidative stress.
This is another benefit of Oligo technology. Since the Oligo form of these vitamins/minerals prevent crystallization, this oxidation reaction is avoided, resulting in a low level of free radicals in your intestine.
The bottom line is this, the less free radicals your body has to fight off, the less your immune system has to work to fight them off, leaving your immune system with a more important task, fighting off colds, flus, allergies, etc.
