#535 Why Conventional Supplements Don’t Work as Well as Plant Phytochemicals with Mary Esther Gilbert


Nutritionists recommend organic foods for their high mineral and phytochemical content. However, we do not pay as much attention to our daily diet as to limit it to organic foods. We need supplements to correct nutrient deficiencies.

But despite their nutritional value, supplements have potential adverse health effects. My guest, Mary Esther Gilbert, has studied supplements for over 40 years and found that very few on the market are made from organically grown whole foods.

Synthetic supplements lose the enzyme factor and other nutrients in the production process. Conventional supplements also lack the cofactors that the body requires to absorb plant-based nutrients. Mary also points out that some supplements have additional ingredients with potential allergenic or health-damaging effects.

We need organic and whole food supplements. Mary offers the alternative of DNA drops, which are superior to nutritional supplements and contain whole food components with active enzymes to ease absorption and digestion. 

Tune in to learn how you can use DNA drops to detox, repair the gut, and relieve inflammation and pain.

Today’s Episode Explores:

🔹How phytochemicals in plants help with elimination and detox of toxins in the body 

🔹The problems with the carnivore and low-carb diets

🔹The issues with conventional supplements – synthetic, don’t absorb, don’t have the bioenergetics of plant-based nutrients

How Toxic Are You? [Free Quiz]

Heavy metals like lead, arsenic, mercury, and aluminum never went away. They are still present in home building materials, furniture, food, beverages, and more.

Finding ways to reduce exposure to these heavy metals (and many more) is incredibly important. To do that effectively, people first need to know which heavy metals they are being exposed to — if any.

This quiz was designed to evaluate individual risk factors for heavy metal exposure, and to gauge whether getting tested for heavy metals is recommended or not. Believe it or not, there are simple at-home tests people can take if they are being exposed — this quiz will determine if it’s worth it to take one.
