Nutritional Analysis

What is LIVE HolistiChat?


The usual terms to describe the benefits of drugs and supplements (such as Nutritional Analysis, Minimum Daily Requirement (MDR), Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or therapeutic amount) do not apply to whole food products (such as oranges, salmon and algae). With drugs and supplements it is the product doing the work ("healing"). Whole food products operate under a totally different paradigm. Whole food products balance (or normalize) the body and then the body does the healing, not the product. This is far safer (no side effects), more complete (symptoms do not come back when product discontinued) and truly wholistic in our opinion. Exact dosage recommendations are actually a dosage deception and gives one a false sense of security. The American Medical Association and American Cancer Society actually agree with our holistic philosophy.

How Benefits Are Measured

The benefits of drugs and supplements are measured in milligrams (or IU) based on allopathic research using the Cause & Effect principle. In other words, they give you a blue pill to decrease a blood value or glandular functionality (such as the thyroid) but give you a red pill to increase the same blood value or glandular functionality. The Cause is the pill and the Effect is to either decrease or increase a value (or functionality) based on which pill. These are usually stated in Minimum Daily Requirement (MDR), Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or a therapeutic amount needed to alleviate ABC symptom or prevent XYZ disease. Since BioSuperfood/BioPreparation are NOT supplements but whole food products, their benefits are measured differently. Therefore, a nutritional analysis listing all the ingredients and their individual amounts contained in BioSuperfood/BioPreparation is not relevant.

When scientists seek to determine the exact dosage of a nutrient needed, they do so in controlled studies. For example, if they wanted to determine the Minimum Daily Requirement (MDR) or Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of Vitamin C, they would subject participants to varying doses of a Vitamin C supplement, while keeping all other variables (for example, other vitamins, food, medicine) constant. They would use isolated Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and most often from a synthetic source (cheaper and purer). When their analysis comes back that 75-90 mg. are needed, everyone jumps on the bandwagon and looks for Vitamin C supplements that contain a minimum of 75 mg. Of course, if a supplement contains more (for example, 90+ mg), then it must be better and those that do not contain at least 75 mg. are inferior. Is this logic and comparison valid?

Dosage Deception

From our holistic viewpoint, we say NO. The results of the above study would only be valid if one were to get their Vitamin C source through the exact isolated Vitamin C supplement (most likely synthetic) used in the study. Here is why the above dosage recommendations are an unintended deception. When a doctor (or a research study) prescribes a certain dosage of a nutrient for a specific condition or symptom, it is based on allopathic research not holistic observations or results. The results of the minimum dosage of that single nutrient (often from a synthetic source) determined in the study, only apply if one gets their source from an extracted, isolated supplement and does not apply if the source is a whole food product (such as an orange, green pepper or algae). Supplements have high therapeutic doses of isolated nutrients to cause an effect (and sometimes bad side effects) in the body. Whole food product have a broad base of nutrients but in low amounts that balance the body rather than cause effects (with no side effects). Whole food product benefits are measured in results, not milligrams, because it is the body doing the work (not the product) as a result of being balanced by the whole food. Here are the basic differences between supplements and whole food products.

Differences in Whole Food Products vs. Supplements

Nourish, energize and balance
the whole body
Fill a single deficiency or fulfill a
single purpose
Do not create a dependency
on the product
Make the body dependent on
this external supply of nutrition
Activate the body’s own natural
ability to heal
rarely fix the cause of the
original symptom or illness
Have no side effects Have side effects


Modern studies show the body absorbs and utilizes only 10-25% of isolated vitamins and supplements it ingests. (The rest is flushed down the toilet.) When the source is not an isolated vitamin or supplement but a whole food product, this absorption and utilization rate increases to 90-95%. The reason is, Nature did not intend for us to eat isolated vitamins or supplements but whole foods. Modern research shows Vitamin C needs rutin, bioflavanoids, Vitamin E, selenium and zinc to work properly. But what other complementary vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes are needed to make Vitamin C work that scientists have not yet discovered? So, when one takes an isolated Vitamin C tablet (pure ascorbic acid) to boost their immune system when one has a cold, the body has to search out and even rob the rest of the dietary food and body for these complementary nutrients to make the supplemental ascorbic acid work properly. This is why one has to take a high therapeutic dosage (for example, 2,000-5,000 mg) of Vitamin C to get results. So, when the minimum needed is 75-90 mg and one takes a supplement with a therapeutic dosage of 2,000 mg of Vitamin C, one gets a false sense of security that all the Vitamin C is being absorbed and utilized and all is well in the body.

When a healthcare practitioner tells you your body needs a therapeutic dosage of 800 IU of Vitamin E or 2,000 mg of vitamin C, they are talking about the dosage from an isolated supplement NOT a whole food product (like BioSuperfood, BioPreparation, Seacure or PSP). One cannot compare the dosage requirements determined in a laboratory for an isolated supplement to consuming whole food nutrients in the real world. This is like comparing apples to oranges and asking which is better. BioSuperfood/ BioPreparation are NOT supplements, therefore one's previous experience and results with supplements cannot be used in comparing BSF/BP. A paradigm shift must occur in order to be able to appreciate revolutionary products, like BioSuperfood and BioPreparation. Drugs and almost all supplements, consist of extracts and high concentrations of just active ingredients. The advantages are quick results and temporary elimination of symptoms. The disadvantages are potential side effects, a dependency on the product and never taking care of the original cause of the symptom or disease. Go to our whole foods and Vitamin C web pages for more details on this new concept.

I proved this to myself by taking a time-released, megadose 2,000 mg Vitamin C tablet and a whole food Vitamin C product made from rose hips and acerola cherries (Vitamin C=350 mg) to my chiropractor when I had a cold or flu. Through nutritional testing the chiropractor determined the 2,000 mg supplement would help me recover from the cold or flu but the 350 mg whole food tablet would do just as well or better. So, a Vitamin C supplement of 2,000 mg is not necessarily better than a whole food product containing 250 mg of Vitamin C. The same holistic logic can be applied to the supplemental dosage requirements for Vitamin B complex, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Omega oils, calcium, iron, etc.

So, instead of comparing dosages in milligrams of supplements versus whole food products, like BioPreparation and BioSuperfood, one needs to compare benefits to determine which is better. Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Did my symptoms go away and stay away after I discontinued the (isolated supplement or whole food product) pill?
  2. Are there any potential side effects?
  3. Can I decrease the dosage after my body totally heals?
  4. Is the original cause of the symptom/disease gone or did I just suppress the symptoms and just have it migrate to a different part of my body?

STOP supplementing the symptoms and holistically boost up ALL the body's systems, balance ALL the glands and organs and experience true holistic health, not just the absence of disease. Wake up the body's natural ability to heal and watch the symptoms disappear. Make a quantum leap in holistic health and experience a new paradigm in wellness!

American Medical Association and American Cancer Society Recommendations

These prestigious medical sources actually agree with our holistic philosophy on using whole foods (and whole food products) rather than supplements.

  • To reduce cancer risk, the best advice presently is to consume antioxidants through food sources, rather than supplements. (“Common Questions About Diet and Cancer,” American Cancer Society)
  • “…there are insufficient data to justify an alteration in public health policy from one that emphasizes food and diet to one that emphasizes nutrient supplements. (“Essential Nutrients: Food or Supplements?” Journal of the American Medical Association, 2005;294:351-358)


BioPreparation/BioSuperfood are Nature's vitamin chest in a capsule (literally containing over 15,000 individual nutrients). Save money, buy fewer supplements and simplify your life. No doctor or vet exam is needed, no expensive diagnostic (lab) tests are done and no health insurance required. BioPreparation has even saved the lives of pets when a vet could not determine why the pet was dying or make an "official" diagnosis.

Nutritional Analysis Calculations

We cannot possibly list all 15,000+ individual nutrients in the bio-algae concentrates products. For a detailed list of some of the important single nutrients in a generic 10 grams of BioPreparation and BioSuperfood microalgae, click the button below to download a PDF from a sample 10 g. batch: 

Nutrient Analysis

To calculate the total of each nutrient per capsule of BioSuperfood or BioPreparation, one must add across all four columns of each algae species. For example to calculate the total amount of Omega 6–Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) essential fatty acid, one adds:

135 mg + 100 mg + 0.21 mg = 235.21 mg GLA/10 grams algae

Since each capsule contains 290 milligrams, there are:

235.21 mg/10 grams X 1.0 gram/1000 mg X 290 milligrams/1 capsule = 6.82109 mg GLA/capsule

If one takes 6 capsules per day (average adult daily amount), they are getting 40.92654 mg of GLA per day. As you can see, this is not a good comparison to any prescribed supplemental dosage of GLA. But the body is getting just as much, if not more benefits because there are all the essential fatty acids of Omega 3, 6, 9, ALAs (Alpha-Linolenic Acids), DGLA (Dihomogamma-Linolenic Acid), DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), in addition to the rare GLA (its gamma linolenic acid content is similar to early mother's milk) and more fatty acids, not just GLA and they all are in the proper ratio as dictated by Nature, not a scientist in a lab. This increases the absorption and utilization of the small amount of GLA in the microalgae. To see what benefits are realized by such a seemingly small amount click on GLA

With nutritional amounts so small, there are no known contraindications using BioSuperfood/ BioPreparation with any vitamin, herb, supplement, homeopathic remedy, other holistic products or drug. If you have any questions about these superfood products, please do not hesitate to contact us. These are whole food products and DO NOT act, react or perform like supplements.
