Optimal GI Support And MoreThis supplement provides optimal support to the gastrointestinal tract. It can relieve any digestive distress such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and constipation. Since it contains whole food ingredients that can nourish the beneficial bacteria, it also has the capability to give the colon its much-needed cleanse. Once the gut is cleaned and maintained, healthy immune system support follows suit. This means that the digestive system can function more efficiently thus it can absorb nutrients well for the body to utilize.
Probiotic Replenish BlendImproving the health of the digestive tract can be obtained by replenishing the number of healthy microorganisms. This supplement contains 400 billion colonies forming unit (CFU) of the proprietary Replenish A to Z Blend. This blend includes Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus paracasei, and Bifidobacterium lactis. These good bacteria can repopulate the gut and maintain a healthy balance from within. To ensure the healthy population of the good bacteria, the supplement also contains 2.5 grams of soluble fiber and 0.5 grams of insoluble fiber that serve as food for the bacteria.
RAW Whole Food Probiotic BlendTo provide food to the good microorganisms, this supplement is also made with the RAW Whole Food Probiotic Blend. This blend contains extracts from organic banana, inulin (artichokes), and European wild kefir culture. The kefir culture contains strains of different good microorganisms such as Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, and many others. The additional good bacteria from the wild kefir culture can help repopulate the small intestines with good microorganisms. The organic banana can help soothe the stomach and also adds a special flavor to the supplement.
Full Spectrum EnzymeBut more than the probiotics, this supplement also contains 100 milligrams of Max Care Full Spectrum Enzyme Blend. The enzyme blend is necessary for proper digestion of different compounds. The examples of enzymes included in this supplement are a protease, maltase, amylase, laces, cellulase, invertase, and alpha-galactosidase. These enzymes ensure the proper breakdown of different food ingested. Because these enzymes promote the proper breakdown of food, the end result is better availability of nutrients and molecules obtained from food that the body can use.
The Magic Of Raw Food IngredientsThe ingredients exist in their raw and unadulterated form. Consuming raw foods means that one is consuming all the vitamins, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, and other phytonutrients that are otherwise denatured when heat is applied. Raw food also comes with better quality nutrients that the body needs. Co-factors are also present to aid the process of better breakdown and absorption of food by the body. This can be easily assimilated and absorbed into the body.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why did Garden of Life come out with a new Line of Multivitamins?
Garden of Life strives to offer customers cutting edge products based on scientific advances in producing natural food products and dietary supplements. A new unique method producing RAW Food -Created Nutrients has enabled Garden of Life to produce the new Vitamin Code line.
What is Vitamin Code?
Vitamin Code is a new cutting edge line of raw food vitamins. Vitamin Code formulas are made with individually cultivated RAW Food-Created Nutrients with their unique Code Factors intact, enabling natural recognition as food by your body.
What are RAW Food-Created Nutrients?
Raw Food-Created Nutrients are delivered "body ready", including live enzymes and probiotics, amino acids, antioxidants and other bioactive Code Factors to nourish as intended by nature.
What are the benefits of consuming a Raw Vitamin?
Naturally occurring vitamins and minerals contained in whole foods are accompanied by essential co-factors that enable the absorption and utilization of such vitamin or mineral in the body. Cooking, treating and adulterating food robs it of many of those co-factors. Vitamin Code formulas also contain live enzymes and probiotics.
What is a Nutrient Specific Peptide?
Each vitamin and mineral has its own unique sequence of peptides required for uptake and then absorption into the yeast or probiotic bacterium as a part of the Raw Food-Created Nutrient process. The peptide attaches to the vitamin or mineral and allows it to successfully be metabolized or "fed" to the yeast or probiotic bacterium.
What does Nutrient Synergy mean?
Nutrient Synergy is when vitamins and minerals, along with their nutritional co-factors, work together to facilitate absorption in the body.
How do Food-Created vitamins differ from Fermented Vitamins and Minerals like Living Multi and what is the difference between Food-Created and Fermented Vitamins and Minerals?
Fermentation is an ancient process where whole foods are broken down and partially digested by probiotic microorganisms in order to either preserve food or make it more digestible. In an effort to create vitamins and minerals closer to food form, a fermentation process is used to combine food concentrates and isolated vitamins and minerals. Fermentation is the breaking down or decomposing of compounds.
Raw Food-Created Nutrients are cultivated or grown in single batches rather than fermented. Imagine growing a plant in the garden, and adding extra calcium to the soil to yield a plant rich in calcium. Now, the creation of nutrients is not the same as growing a plant, but this analogy helps to understand the way Raw-Food Created Nutrients are grown and cultivated. The yeast or bacteria is cultivated in water and "fed" a vitamin or mineral to yield a food based yeast or probiotic based matrix that is rich in that particular vitamin or mineral. Raw Food-Created Nutrients are grown in both S. cerevisiae (baker's yeast) and the probiotic Lactobacillus bulgaricus to provide a broader spectrum of Code Factors.
Imagine yourself 100 years ago describing the latest craze in health and nutrition, the "RAW" food movement, with someone living at that time. RAW Foods are natural, uncooked, untreated, unadulterated - NO BINDERS and NO FILLERS. Right after you finished sharing what you consider a groundbreaking concept of consuming foods in their natural state with that person, they would most likely stare at you and tell you that you just described the way they eat every day. What is now considered unique and advanced was for their ancestors the norm.
In today's modern system of agriculture, the use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilizers allows the average acre of farm land to yield more food than that same acre would have 50 years ago. The flip side of that is due to all of those chemicals, their food is not as nutrient dense as it once was. A comparison of U.S. Department of Agriculture food composition tables from the 1960s and 1970s to the present day reveals that the vitamin and mineral content of the nation's breadbasket has declined 25 percent to 50 percent in just the last generation.
Garden of Life's food is less nutritious coming off the farm. This fact is made much the worse when you consider what they do to their food after it leaves the farm. In the name of convenience, safety and even marketing, they subject that food to processing such as irradiation, chemical preservation, heating and treating. Food is created solely based on how well it can be packaged, shipped and sold and not in terms of the nutrition it should be providing. This whole concept supports the maxim that they are overfed and undernourished.
In order to overcome the "nutritional gap" created by an increasingly under-nutritious food supply, many people turn to multivitamins. Unfortunately most multivitamins are chemically isolated, synthetic versions of vitamins and minerals found in food. They are inorganic, lifeless.
Garden of Life've replaced food with an anti-food. Until the Vitamin Code, there have been few options available for those who wish to supplement with a RAW, living multivitamin. The Vitamin Code represents the next breakthrough in multivitamins.
Is Your Multivitamin RAW?
Each vitamin and mineral contained in The Vitamin Code multinutrient formulas is individually cultivated resulting in a process that mimics plant activity. In nature, plants transform inorganic material into usable and bioavailable nutrients. Similarly, the Vitamin Code Process transforms isolated nutrients, recapturing them into whole foods. The result is an innovative RAW vitamin, mineral or antioxidant that is surrounded by the probiotics, enzymes, phytonutrients and other co-factors that create a nutrient-rich source of fuel beneficial for the body.
At no point during the cultivation process are the vitamins and minerals treated, adulterated or cooked. More importantly is what you won't find on the label - no binders or fillers. The Vitamin Code nutrients are 100% active, meaning that every ingredient contained within them has nutritional value and purpose. The Vitamin Code represents a breakthrough in multivitamins: RAW, living multivitamin/mineral supplements.
The RAW Factor
The magic of RAW food is truly found in its simplicity. When you eat a food that is uncooked, untreated, and unadulterated, you are eating that food in harmony with nature's intention and your body's design. RAW food enthusiasts will tell you that there are many benefits derived from eating RAW.
When you consume RAW foods you are consuming all of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics and phytonutrients contained therein. Simply heating foods can result in the loss of hundreds of these co-factors. When you add different chemical treatments and adulteration to the mix, you are often left with food that is a shell of its former self.
Most people readily accept this premise. Who among us would argue that eating a canned fruit cup in syrup is better than eating a fresh apple?
While all foods provide some nutrition, RAW foods provide higher levels of the 45 nutrients they need to supply their bodies every day. In addition, the co-factors mentioned above are incredibly important. Garden of Life's bodies are designed to take in food and then break it down in order to glean nutrition from that food. Co-factors such as probiotics and enzymes aid this process. The probiotics and enzymes present in RAW food aid the digestion process, allowing the body to break down the food and assimilate the nutrients into the bloodstream. Nature provides the complete package of vitamins, minerals and co-factors necessary for the body to maximize the nutrient potential of RAW food.
No supplement can compare to the benefits associated with consuming RAW foods. If you have a nutritional deficiency or you just don't eat a healthy balanced diet you probably need to supplement to give your body the basic nutrition it needs to function properly. If you are going to supplement, you should seek out a RAW, Whole-Food multivitamin. The Vitamin Code is a multivitamin that was developed to provide supplemental nutrition as close as supplementation can get to actual RAW food.
