FAQ’s

Question:

Why is eating a balanced diet not enough?

Answer:

Most people believe that if they eat a balanced diet they get all the nutrients they need to stay healthy and live a long life. This fallacy has been a matter of public record for over 60 years. Senate Document 264, 74th Congress 2nd session in 1936 announced that, “Our farm soils are severely depleted of minerals. The grain, fruits and vegetables growing in these depleted soils are deficient. If the essential nutrients are not in the soils, the roots of the plants can’t absorb them into the plants and thus not into us.” That was back in 1936! Imagine how depleted the soil is now. In 1993, WHO (the World Health Organization) said, “Our soil is totally baron, 95% depleted of the basic survival nutrients we need.” Though lack of proper nutrition in our diet is no secret and is certainly nothing new, what is alarming is that these deficiencies are showing up in our bodies. Senate Document 264 adds, “We know that vitamins are complex substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is of importance for normal function of the structures of the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin or mineral deficiency.” These facts are why Origin & Source was formed. Our ingredients come from the best sources on earth ensuring superior vitamin, nutrient and mineral content. Additionally, each ingredient in every batch is independently tested for potency to ensure results every time.

Question:

Answer: 

Digest is our daily 100% whole food vegan digestive product with pro-biotics added in. To achieve a complete digestive system product that addresses each stage of digestion, assimilation and elimination we combined Betadine HCL for the liquefaction of food, digestive enzymes for proper utilization and absorption of your food, vegan cultured probiotics for the optimum colonization of your gut and three forms of beet to gently cleanse the blood, gall bladder and entire digestive tract. The result is a properly balanced digestive product that is easy to absorb and totally utilizable. Suggested use: 2 per meal

 

Question:

What does Digest replace in monthly supplement purchases? 

Answer: 

Digest by design replaces many prescription (check with your health care professional) and over the counter products you may already be taking including antacids, heartburn tablets, acid reflux pills, digestive enzymes, probiotics, gall bladder and colon cleanse products and detoxification programs. Digest can replace all of these while working gently because it is taken with each meal. Taking Digest with every meal ensures that the food you are eating is being used completely while your digestive system is being gently cleansed. Due to the cleansing nature of this product, it is also the cornerstone of our detoxification program.

Question: 

Why do we use only 100% whole foods?

Answer: 

To answer this we must first discuss xenobiotics. Technically speaking, a xenobiotic (pronounced zeno-biotic) is derived from the Greek language meaning “a foreigner or stranger in an organism not expected to be found in that organism or produced by that organism.” A good example of a xenobiotic would be any drug. Drugs are man-made, and therefore not naturally expected to be found in the body (the “organism”). Your body by design removes xenobiotics because they are foreign to it. Chemically man made synthetic vitamins are also xenobiotics. Our belief is that nature is just better. Every product from Origin & Source is strictly 100% natural whole foods and are always xenobiotic free. Your entire family can take our products with confidence knowing that they are as healthy as safe as a fresh tossed salad.
