Why Vitamin & Mineral Supplements Might Be Failing You


Should I take Multi-Vitamins?

I’m Ty Bollinger. Thanks for joining me today. This is my good friend, Dr. Daniel Nuzum. Thanks for joining me, doc. Dr. Nuzum: Yes, sir. Ty Bollinger: And Dr. Nuzum is going to share with us some of his wisdom today on the importance of two things that seem pretty basic, vitamins and minerals, right? Dr. Nuzum: Right. Ty Bollinger: We need those in our diet to live, don’t we? But are we getting enough? Dr. Nuzum: Our—the answer is no. I mean flat out. The answer is no. Our standard American diet supplies us with 17 vitamins and minerals. Our body needs 73 vitamins and minerals every day. The analogy I give to my patients is if we went out to your car and we randomly removed 80 percent of all the nuts and bolts from your car, then I give you your keys and send you off to go to the corner for a bottle or water or something— Ty Bollinger: I wouldn’t drive.

Dr. Nuzum: Right. Would you drive your car? No, of course, you wouldn’t. If you knew that, you wouldn’t stress your car by turning it on or even getting into it probably. I wouldn’t get into a car missing 80 percent of its nuts and bolts, you know? That being the case, our—if you’re eating the standard American diet and you’re not getting nutrients from anywhere else, your machinery is missing roughly 80 percent of your nuts and bolts. Okay? So, just like the car that’s missing all these nuts and bolts doesn’t function properly, neither can your body. Your body can’t function properly. It needs all of the components in order for everything to work properly. Ty Bollinger: But that’s easy to remedy, isn’t it? Can’t you just go to any store and buy a multivitamin and fix that? Dr. Nuzum: You can buy a multivitamin.

You can’t fix it, but you can buy a multivitamin. The problem with most multivitamin supplements out there, you go to your large stores that have been on almost every corner in—you’ll—you can find them fairly inexpensive, okay? And the reason being is they’re using petroleum byproducts to synthesize those vitamins in a laboratory, and they’re not something that your body can metabolize or assimilate. Your body can’t utilize synthetic vitamins, okay? Ty Bollinger: So, it would be kind of like if I—if you took a multivitamin that was found in one of the big box stores, real cheap, affordable multivitamin, it would—it might do you as much good as putting plastic nuts and bolts on a car.

Dr. Nuzum: Right. Absolutely. Ty Bollinger: And why is that? Why is it—why are these petroleum-based synthetic derivatives not good? Dr. Nuzum: Under a microscope, they look very similar. They’re very—they’re not identical, but very similar, to your naturally-occurring vitamins, okay? The body knows the difference. In the synthetic vitamins and minerals, are metabolized just as if they were toxic. So, instead of actually absorbing those so-called nutrients, okay, those vitamins. We’ll just call them vitamins, okay? Instead of absorbing those vitamins, your body metabolizes them as if they were toxic because they’re synthetic and they are toxic. They build up in your system. They can cause damage. Ty Bollinger: So, doc, it sounds like not only are those synthetic vitamins and minerals not only not good, they’re actually bad for you because your body sounds to almost mount an immune response against them.

Dr. Nuzum: Absolutely. Long-term, that’s not good from multiple standpoints, you know the toxicity standpoint, but also the last thing you want your body to be doing is mounting an attack against a nutrient. Ty Bollinger: True. Dr. Nuzum: We don’t need any help getting more nutrient-deficient. Ty Bollinger: Yeah. Dr. Nuzum: Does that make sense? Ty Bollinger: So, doc, are there minerals and vitamins out there that we can actually absorb? Dr. Nuzum: Yes, yes there are. There’s—although these things do occur naturally in foods, okay, we can take, and we can concentrate things like juices, fruit and vegetable juices, and we can concentrate those and derive the nutrients from those, those particular sources, okay? There’s another way of taking those types of things and we can ferment them. And again, we open up that nutrition. It’s like predigesting the nutrients so the body just sucks them up as soon as it gets exposed to them, you know? That’s a pretty cool process.

There’s another thing we can do with vitamins, it’s called methylation. It’s another process. And that actually helps with our body utilizing the vitamins in like every phase of the whole metabolic process. So, in not just absorbing the nutrients, not just getting them in the system, but also enabling the cells to utilize the nutrients properly. So, there are multiple things we can do that can—we can take sources, and get nutrients from those sources that are easy for our body to assimilate and absorb, and then they also function very well in our system, our body knows what to do with them.

Okay? Because they’re from food sources. So, with that, there’s—by getting our nutrients from concentrated food sources, our body recognizes those things as nutrients, okay? So, we don’t have an antinutrient immune response. You know? And it utilizes those, it takes those, just like nuts and bolts for the car, like we talked about, it will recognize those as the nuts and bolts it needs and it will utilize them, create new structures— Ty Bollinger: Because they’re from whole foods. Dr. Nuzum: Because they’re from whole foods. Ty Bollinger: And your body’s supposed to eat food. Dr. Nuzum: Exactly. Ty Bollinger: So, that’s really the key, isn’t it? Is to have a multivitamin and a multimineral that’s whole food based. Dr. Nuzum: Whole food based. Ty Bollinger: And if it is, your body recognizes it and it absorbs it, right? And then you mentioned something else that I think is important, is the fermentation process.

So, that makes things even more available to your body, doesn’t it? Dr. Nuzum: Yes, it does. It does. The microbes predigest everything. So, it’s all just ready for your body to absorb it. and that’s a wonderful process. Then you have—again, I always go back to delivery systems. That’s what—creating specific delivery systems for whatever it is that we’re trying to—whatever we’re trying to deliver to the body, okay? Because those—these components, these nutrients are precious, okay? If we just dumped the nutrients down the drain, you know, they can get tore up.

They can get “mutilated” in the process of digestion because they’re raw nutrients. They’re in their purest form. So, we don’t denature them. We have to do something to protect them through and deliver them through the digestive process. And so, that’s another component in developing a good multivitamin/mineral supplement. You want a good delivery system for it. Ty Bollinger: Right. That makes sense that it’s not just what the substance is, but it has to get to its destination, right? Dr. Nuzum: Right. Ty Bollinger: So, if I had—if I had a bucket of gold here, I wish I did, but if I had a bucket of gold and I wanted to get it to my house in Nashville, I’d probably send it via FedEx or UPS or something reliable like that, but I wouldn’t send it on a kid with a bicycle and get him to carry it, right? Because it’s not a very good delivery system.

It probably wouldn’t make it there. Dr. Nuzum: Exactly. Ty Bollinger: That makes sense. Dr. Nuzum: If it did make it there, probably not all of it would make it there. Ty Bollinger: I think some people might get their hands in the— Dr. Nuzum: Exactly. Ty Bollinger: —bucket of gold between here and there, right. Dr. Nuzum: Right. Ty Bollinger: Doc, that really shed some light on the subject of vitamins and minerals. So again, just to reiterate, whole food based, fermented, and you’re going to be able to orally take those and your body’s going to recognize them and it’s going to be able to actually utilize them.

That’s so vitally important in light of the fact that most people are only getting about 17 out of 73 vital nutrients. We all need a multivitamin and multimineral that we can use. Dr. Nuzum: Some of us. Ty Bollinger: But it’s just there’s not much available out there, and the ones that are available on the store shelves are actually going to do more harm than good. So, you have developed a product that takes all of these things into consideration, haven’t you? Dr. Nuzum: Right. Yes, sir. MultiVitaMaxx is created with a delivery system specific to the nutrients that we’re trying to deliver. It’s with fermented fruits and vegetables. We have methylated vitamins. We have chelated minerals in this mix. Everything is designed for easy absorption, easy assimilation, without causing stress to the body. Okay? So, it’s not something that’s going to push the body. We’re not using megadoses of vitamins or minerals, okay? Because again, megadoses are good for short periods of time, but over a long period of time, you get even—too much of a good thing’s still bad.

Ty Bollinger: Well plus, with the delivery system that you’ve developed, the smaller doses is what you need, what you can utilize, right? Dr. Nuzum: Absolutely. You don’t need as much. Ty Bollinger: So, one of the great things about this is that its whole food based. So, since it’s food, you don’t have to worry about toxicity from MultiVitaMaxx, right? It’s the whole food, it’s fermented, and that’s the key. So, Doc Nuzum, thank you so much for joining me today. Dr. Nuzum: Yes, sir.
