"At QN Labs we find that only careful testing of each batch and source of herbal ingredients will guarantee the most premium quality. Recently when the QNL Quantum Rx Nutrition laboratory tested one source of asparagus extract, we found 90% of it was hay! Just cheap hay! This supplier was trying to get our business, obviously, they did not!"
ok that just lets u know even if it says herbs u dont know what it really is so optimally try and shoot for the source of the real thing. get it in ur hand non processed!
"Most retailers and distributors of vitamin supplements have no way to test their products to see if what is on the label is actually in the bottle. Therefore, they are not aware of the toxicity of the products they are selling and mistakenly claim 100% purity for their products.
Ask your retailers and distributors that are selling nutritional supplements to you to provide a written statement that guarantees their products are free of stearates, palmitates, stearic acid, FD&C food colors (recently banned by the FDA), "natural flavors" (which is just a fancy name for MSG, a known neurotoxic), polyethylene glycol, acetate, titanium dioxide, sucrose, and other toxic excipients and potentially harmful manufacturing additives. In fact, ask them for full label disclosure listing every component used to produce each product!"
other names for msg are hydrolyzed vegetable protein, Accent- Aginomoto,Natural Meet Tenderizer

Hydroxy Propyl Methylcellulose
Over 90% of the vitamin/mineral products consumed today
contain magnesium stearate, also known as Stearic Acid.
“Stearic Acid inhibits T-cell dependent immune responses. Plasma membrane integrity is significantly impaired, leading to a loss of membrane potential and ultimately cell function and viability.”
Tebbey PW, Buttke TM, “Molecular Basis For The Immunosuppressive Action
of Stearic Acid on T cells”, Immunogy, 1990 Jul; 379-86
“ When cells were exposed to stearic acids and palmitic acids, there was a dramatic loss of cell viability after 24 hours. Cell death was induced by stearic and palmitic acid.”

doctors of med fields recommend more fruits and veggies for healing. even acidic fruits are totally different than these chemicals. your body can handle pineapple, lemon, lime, oranges....w/o having ur body ph becoming destroyed. i recommend buying bulk organic food from reliable places. i found trueharvest.com to be a great place to shop. i get 25lbs of organic lentils, peas, organic brown rice, raw almonds, brazil nuts. you might like other foods. i dont know. but thats the way to approach it. other good food to look into are: oat groats, barley, buckwheat, kamut, quinoa, beans(some can b sprouted for added benefits. mung beans are the most common for this), whole grain pastas. the rest of your diet in my book should come from fruits and veggies. no meats or dairy(cheese,eggs,milk...). if u can however grow or actually witness free range cows/chickens than it could b acceptable for u to include dairy or meat. i personally do not want to eat anything that has blood.
