This is the time of year when summer is fading and winter is fast approaching. With winter comes exposure to viruses of all sorts, leading to an assault on our immune function. We all want to stay healthy and if you are like me, you try to prepare nutritionally and you assemble your supplements for fighting off the first sign of attack. This interview is about one way to get fast and impressive results.
In our interview I will discuss ACF Fast Relief with Lester Burks, Chief Managing Office of Life Line Foods. Life Line Foods is the manufacturer of the Buried Treasure line of liquid supplements. They have about 35 products and we are going to discuss one specialized formula – ACF Fast Relief. ACF Fast Relief is a liquid formula of vitamins, minerals, herbs and silver. It is a product that has been a mainstay in health food stores for decades. It is a liquid that you take four times a day beginning at the first sign of an attack. We will discuss what is in it and how it works.
I cannot stress enough the importance of doing something at the first and earliest possible time. The longer you wait the longer your affliction is likely to last. Time is truly of the essence. One of the recurring comments from users is how fast it works. This is why you want to have the product on hand so you can take at the first sign. One bottle last four days and you will feel better in two. I have personally found that if I slam my immune supplements at the first sign I will often knock it out in the first 24 hours.
ACF Fast Relief is not designed as a preventive agent. Buried Treasure has a different formula for daily use. ACF Fast Relief is for boosting your immune response at the first sign of symptoms. You will feel better soon. ACF Fast Relief is a blend of vitamin C and Zinc combined with the classic herbs, echinacea and elderberry, golden seal, thyme, ginger, white willow, myrhh, osha and usnea. Finally it has purified Silver. Most of you will be somewhat familiar with that list of ingredients. You might even know that some of those herbs and zinc are not all that good tasting. Some are bitter herbs. But they are also time tested and clinically confirmed to bolster immune function. So you should know going in that this is not going to taste good. It doesn’t. But it works really fast. Taste is temporary, get over it. ACF is also a family of products. There is ACF Extra Strength, Prevention ACF and ACF for Children.
- SIDE NOTE: Buried Treasure has partnered with Natural Medicines Database to provide you access to the huge collection of nutritional information. This is a great resource for a review of the science for each nutrients. You can look up each of these ingredients for a comprehensive view of the benefits. This is usually a subscription service that is provided free by Buried Treasure. You can also look up possible nutrient interactions. Good companies want you to learn and understand more about the benefits of nutrition.
One distinct advantage that you have with liquid supplements is that they can get into your system quickly. There is no breakdown time. Liquids are rapidly absorbed and your body can respond sooner than with tablets. In order for vitamins and minerals to be utilized by the body, they must be absorbed by the blood cells from the bloodstream after passing through the digestive tract. Studies have questioned whether tablets, capsules, and softgel caps dissolve quickly enough to be effective, if they dissolve! Therefore, the key to nutrient effectiveness is directly related to the amount of active ingredients and the rate of their delivery and assimilation into the bloodstream.
In order for nutrients to be bioavailable (the percent of active ingredients that actually reaches the bloodstream), the digestive system is required to break down the binders, fillers, and other excipients used to hold the active ingredients together in tablets. Gelatin capsules and softgel caps require the break down of plasticizers, and beef and pork byproducts which are used as ingredients in most capsules. Artificial colors are often added to softgel caps to ensure a constant color.
Because the digestive system becomes less effective with age and when the body is under stress, assimilation of nutrients becomes less than optimal. Research shows that after age 50, the utilization of essential nutrients is greatly reduced. So when nutrient absorption may be most critical, our bodies lack the ability to break down the tablets, gelatin capsules, and softgel caps. Liquid supplements are often easier for many people to swallow. If you have trouble swallowing tablets or capsules then you can appreciate a liquid supplement. Even if you are someone who takes a lot of supplements, sometimes it is nice not to add more tablets. Buried Treasure has a wide variety of liquid formulas. Check with your local health food store. Buried Treasure is backed by a 100% performance guarantee.
