“Research published in JANA shows that only 2 ½% of nutritional products (randomly selected) were both non-toxic and effective”
(winter, 1999 edition)
Every true natural health professional seeks nutrition and herbal products that really work. For 14 years, I did not recommend or carry a specific professional, nutritional product line in my studio. Rather, I had a very limited supply of some handpicked products from reputable companies. In my professional experience, this is a complex study. My main priority is to intelligently navigate this largely unregulated, international industry, to find truly effective, safe and natural solutions capable of rebuilding and transforming health at a core/causal level as effectively and efficiently as possible. In 2009, I discovered Premier Research Labs (PRL) based in Austin, Texas.
In the Studio we now offer the full line of PRL products and feel so grateful that such a line exists. “Premier Research Labs is known internationally as the pre-eminent manufacturer of excipient-free, premier quality nutraceutical formulations, super food concentrates and the world's first producer of cellular resonance products that are capable of restoring quantum coherence to the body's inherent biofield.” (PRL website)
Excipients are highly questionable and likely problematic. They are binders, fillers and “glue” that are typically non-nutritive substances in nutritional products (See Excipient List). Tablets always contain excipients, they cannot be made without them. Testing reveals that excipients are very stressful for certain individuals and often cannot be digested or absorbed so they pass through the body intact and unused.
PRL uses the terms Quantum Nutrition and Cellular Resonance in regard to their products. The Quantum Nutrient Effect (QNE) is the result consuming these cellular resonant quantum quality nutrients that are synergistically combined so their effect is far greater than the sum of their individual parts. Ideal Cellular Resonance (ICR) refers to substances and raw materials only found in “once living”, pure, natural sources that can sustain or restore ideal cell function. Combining biochemistry, physics and nutrition creates live-food supplements capable of combining with your cells and tissues to raise your level of health and function due to their tremendous regenerative capacity and bioavailability. They contain healthy spin, high resonance, and coherence creating an ideal fuel source. PRL uses the key markers of ICR and QNE combined with optimal quality standards create the ideal combinations.
Voluntarily Setting a New Industry Standard
PRL is voluntarily setting a new industry standard regarding effectiveness, purity and innovation. Products of this caliber combined with precision dosing via reliable, objective and verifiable testing methods for each individual is the most reliable, effective and honest approach I have found to resolving the core/casual factors underlying symptoms and diagnosis.
Premier nutraceutical formulations and super foods concentrates are created by the highest standards possible. Such standards include: organic (free of irradiation, pesticides, etc), whole food (vs. extracts), live-source (vs. synthetic), free of toxins or excipient-free (vs. full of binders, fillers and known neuron toxins, etc. in any quantity) while processed by exemplary manufacturing methods and facilities (to ensure potency and purity of raw materials). Very few options exist for such high quality supplements because this is a very expensive and time consuming way to manufacture. As a company, PRL meets and exceeds all above-mentioned priorities.
A common industry standard for nutritional/herbal quality control in manufacturing randomly tests 5% of incoming containers of raw materials. At PRL every container of incoming raw material is tested. I offer PRL in my clinic because of their commitment to premium raw materials and exhaustive testing to ensure quality that works in the real world. Widespread worldwide contamination and unethical practices by suppliers– like substituting cheaper herbal species for more expensive ones– make this extensive testing mandatory at PRL. The only way to absolutely ensure integrity of raw material quality is to test every container.
PRL uses an Ayurvedic grading system for herbal quality, using a scale of one to ten; ten indicating the best quality. PRL is the only known Grade-Ten importer in the U.S. Every container is tested via a highly advanced testing system of photoluminescence technology called High Performance Crystal Spectroscopy (HPSC) in which perfectly benign infrared light beam penetrates raw material. This creates a frequency signature in the form of a distinctive fingerprint graph that is compared to the fingerprint graph of the ideal specifications of this raw material and creates a “range of confidence”. This technology can also identify heavy metals, pesticides, excess moisture and more. Since these defects are not visible to the naked eye, without HPSC, one could easily and unintentionally accept raw materials of significantly less active ingredient, reduced potency and quality.
