Bioavailability refers to the amount of a given nutrient found in supplements, food or medication that is absorbed and actively used for the biological activity of your cells and tissues. Despite this, bioavailability is often overlooked when it comes to comparing supplement brands.
The determinants of the absorption of supplements into your bloodstream include: nutrition form, time of the day taken, the body’s nutritional needs and the level of absorption of the uterine wall. All these influence the level of bioavailability.
Absorption of Nutrients
Not all the nutrients that you consume will be absorbed and enter your bloodstream. The body can only use a portion that it takes in. Vitamins and minerals have varying bioavailability this can be due to its source, as well as other foods you ate during the meal or how the food is cooked.
After absorption, the number of nutrients retained depend on the needs of your body. This is determined by sex, age, health and the number of nutrients already in your body. The nutritional needs of a young boy and an old man are very different.
Keeping track of your nutrients and minerals
You don’t have to stress about how you are going to keep track of your vitamins with a calculator because you don’t have to. First, make sure to eat a balanced diet. Introduce variety to all your meals including dairy foods, fruits, and vegetables.
Second, avoid popular diet trends because this deprives the body of nutrients that it may need. Eliminating some beneficial interactions among nutrients can amplify negative ones.
Lastly, first try to get your nutrients from whole foods instead of relying only on supplements. Although supplements help with dietary gaps, the nutrients from food are the most important.
There is a huge difference between supplement brands. Regular store-bought supplements tend to yield a much lower absorption rate than premium supplements (another you get what you pay for example). Young Living supplements have an 80% absorption rate compared to conventional supplements, which only have a 30% absorption rate! That is a whopping 50% increase! This tells me you get way more bang for your buck and the supplements will be that much more effective! ⠀ ⠀ The difference in these supplements is in their bioavailability and their essential oil content. Dr. Gary Young was the first to formulate nutritional supplements with essential oils. Essential oils infused into a supplement make the nutrients and vitamins more bioavailable in the body. This means the body can absorb them and use them as nutrients.⠀ ⠀ Are you wondering how it works? Essential oils help increase the assimilation (absorption) of other nutrients on a cellular level and they help remove waste from the cells, which helps detoxify them, in turn causing the cells to function at a higher level!⠀ ⠀ So… The bottom line is that you should 100% be taking Young Living’s supplements over your store bought ones! Start making the switch with an easy one like your Probiotic and get that into your Essential Rewards cart stat!⠀
If you want to make changes at the cellular level, you need to be consistent with health practices for a few months to give your body a chance to regenerate new healthy cells to actually FEEL a difference! Hence the 3-month plan!!!

In order to make an EASY transition to a healthier lifestyle, you want to replace items in your home that are exposing you to toxins EVERY SINGLE DAY.
You cannot live a 100% toxin-free life. You are exposed to air pollution, contaminated groundwater, and even harmful chemicals in stores and office buildings, but YOU control the products you purchase and bring into your home. One of the easiest things we can do is ditch and switch the products that we use every single day.
Most generic personal care and home care products are filled with harmful chemicals that cause a lot of damage to your body. These products contain ingredients that are carcinogens, asthma instigators, endocrine disruptors, and poisons. #NoThanks
Let’s get all those things OUT of your home and bring in the GOOD products that have SAFE ingredients that actually allow you to live ABOVE the wellness line. The Young Living Thieves line is the perfect way to ditch the YUCK and switch to the GOOD.

In order to cleanse the body and get rid of all the junk you have exposed yourself to over the years, treat yourself to a cleansing system. Young Living has a lot of great options for this, but let’s take a closer look at one simple system, the Cleansing Trio.
The Cleansing Trio Kit contains three products you need to cleanse your system, eliminate waste, and support normal liver function. Augmented with herbs that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential oils, the Cleansing Trio promotes energy and a sense of well-being. This kit includes ComforTone, Essentialzyme, and ICP.
Young Living’s Cleansing Trio is designed to be used as a short-term cleansing system. You can use this system for four to eight weeks and then you should discontinue the use of ComforTone. Avoid any refined sugar or processed foods to take your cleanse to a higher level.
Cleansing Trio Kit Item #: 3115
Essentialzyme™ helps CHOMP everything up. Enzymes are proteins that control the speed of chemical reactions in your body. Without enzymes, you wouldn’t be able to breathe, swallow, drink, eat, or digest your food. Therefore, it is important to make sure you are getting the proper enzymes to break down food and improve digestion in the cleansing process. Are you eating a lot of Kefir, Bananas, Soy Sauce, Pineapples, Avocados, Bee Pollen, Papayas, Sauerkraut, Miso, Kiwi, and Tempeh? If not, then you better take Essentialzyme!
Essentialzyme™ is a bilayer, peppermint-coated caplet that combines pure essential oils, herbs, and plant-derived enzymes formulated to improve digestive health, enzyme activity, and pancreatic function while reducing pancreatic stress.
Essentialzyme is a product that can be taken long-term. Take 1 dual time-release caplet 1 hour before your largest meal of the day for best results.
If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use. Do not give this product to children under 6 years of age except under the supervision of a health professional. If discomfort persists, discontinue use of this product and consult a health professional.
ComforTone aids in the elimination of waste products and gases in the colon. ComforTone capsules contain an effective combination of herbs and essential oils that support the health of the digestive system by eliminating residues from the colon and enhancing its natural ability to function optimally. It does this by supporting normal peristalsis which is what helps move everything through your bowels. It also promotes liver, gallbladder, and stomach health.
Take 1 capsule 3 times daily. Drink at least 64 ounces of distilled water throughout the day for best results. This product contains Cascara sagrada bark so please make sure that you are following the directions carefully and only using this as a SHORT-TERM product.
This product is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing or others who have a medical condition except under the direction of a physician. Children under 12 should not use this product. Discontinue use and consult a physician if you have or develop abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. Do not exceed recommended dosage. This is not for long-term use. It is not to be used as a weight loss product.
ICP™ helps keep your colon clean. It does this with an advanced mix of fibers that scour out residues. A healthy digestive system is important for the proper functioning of all other systems because it absorbs nutrients that are used throughout the body. A healthy digestive system means healthy emotions and a healthy immune system along with a lot of other things. Using this supplement is going to help get rid of all the toxic gunk sitting in your colon.
ICP contains ingredients such as psyllium, oat bran, and flax and fennel seeds to form a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers. Enhanced with a special blend of essential oils, the fibers work to decrease the buildup of wastes, improve nutrient absorption, and help maintain a healthy heart. ICP provides two grams of dietary fiber, one gram of soluble fiber, and one gram of insoluble fiber per serving.
Mix 2 rounded teaspoons with at least 8 oz. of juice or water. Drink immediately as this product tends to thicken quickly when added to liquid. Tastes best in carrot juice, apple juice, or smoothies. If cleansing or eating a high-protein diet, use 3x daily. If eating a low-protein diet, use once daily.
Using this product without enough liquid may cause choking. Do not use this product if you have difficulty swallowing. This product contains Aloe Vera (A. barbadensis) leaf. Read and follow directions carefully. Do not use if you have or develop diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain. Consult your physician if you have frequent diarrhea. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have a medical condition, consult your physician before using this product.
Long story short, if you want healthy eyes, a strong immune system, and a ton of energy, feed your body DAILY with a juice that packs a ton of punch: NingXia Red.
Not only does it taste good but it contains one powerful ingredient, NingXia Wolfberry puree. Wolfberries score very high on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale. This scale measures the ability of a food or any other substance to quench oxygen free radicals in a test tube. Free radicals are not good and we want them OUT of your body. NingXia Red helps provide an unfriendly place for free radicals, which is a GREAT thing for our health.
The Wolfberry superfruit contains zeaxanthin, a carotenoid important to maintaining healthy vision. It also contains polysaccharides, amino acids, and symbiotic vitamin mineral pairs that when presented together promote optimum internal absorption. In other words, it contains ALL. THE. GOOD. STUFF.
The combination of other fruit juices from blueberries, plums, cherries, pomegranate, and aronia along with essential oils provide an even more powerful and beneficial supplement that supports your health and well-being.
Drink 1-2 ounces 2x daily. Best served chilled. Shake well before use.
