Root Cause Bundle
This mighty bundle sets you up with the core products that serve as The Root Cause Protocol Foundation.
The RCP is a step-by-step protocol designed to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress at the cellular level. By restoring balance to the key minerals in your body, e.g. magnesium, copper and iron, you can optimize and increase your energy levels and vitality.
RCP KEY PRINCIPLES
1. The RCP works from a perspective of health rather than disease. Oxidative stress stemming from disruptions in mitochondrial energy production is the starting point to disease conditions. Supporting the body’s energy creation and flow allows healing to occur at all levels and in all systems.
2. The RCP favors “strengthening the host”, as opposed to “attacking the guest”, in regard to pathogens and toxins of all kinds. A body in optimal health is better able to withstand invaders, and “attack” strategies can deplete the body’s resources and undermine its innate immune system.
3. While mainstream practitioners seek to flood the body with isolated, synthetic versions of nutrients that register as “low” on standard lab testing, the RCP looks at why those nutrients are low, and focuses on supplying the building blocks required to balance all elements naturally.
4. As much as possible, the RCP recommends that nutrients come from fresh organic food. Synthetic nutrients lack the enzymes and co-factors that occur naturally in whole foods to aid in their digestion, assimilation and activation in the body.
Wild C provides the wholefood vitamin C complex that our body desires. Wholefood C is critical for nourished adrenals. The wholefood vitamin C (WFC) complex provides the tyrosinase enzyme at the core and two copper atoms inside that. This is the complete, bioavailable form of vitamin C that our body is designed to run on. The copper and bioflavonoids work synergistically to provide the functions of the wholefood vitamin C complex, which offers antioxidant properties and plays a key role in iron management.
Rosita Cod Liver is a valuable source of naturally occurring vitamin A (as retinol), which is crucial in activating bioavailable copper and restoring the iron recycling system. The omega-3s and naturally occurring D3 in CLO are also beneficial, but the naturally occurring vitamin A is what we’re really seeking to get.
Smidge AM & PM Magnesium provides the foundational mineral that is required for thousands of enzyme reactions, and is essential for a healthy metabolism. It is naturally calming and plays an important role in digestion, blood sugar management, cardiac health, and much more. It also partners with copper to create cellular energy and manage iron. With all of the body’s demands, magnesium is rapidly depleted, especially during times of stress, and must be replenished daily.
Unique E Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin and potent antioxidant that helps prevent damage to cells and tissues caused by free radicals. The wholefood vitamin E complex includes 4 tocopherols, 4 tocotrienols and selenium at its core. Wholefood molecules are easily degraded by processing, which is why we prefer to get this from foods.
Bee Pollen B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. We recommend wholefood sources for obtaining B vitamins such as Bee Pollen. Synthetic B’s do not perform the same as Mother Nature’s rich B vitamin foods, and lack the enzymes and co-nutrients that help with assimilation. The most important of these is copper, which is required for B vitamin activation. Bee Pollen provides B vitamins and a variety of other micronutrients, including bioavailable copper, in a form that’s very biologically active and easy for the body to use. It’s also a source of quercetin, a natural iron chelator, and exhibits antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory activity.
Beef Liver Capsules provide a balance of copper and iron that is closest to that found in the human liver and is an excellent source of retinol. Both copper and retinol are essential for regulating iron in the body. Beef liver also provides the ideal ratio of copper to zinc and is a good source of B vitamins, especially B12. Grass-fed beef liver is also a source of intrinsic factor to help with B12 absorption. The emphasis on organically raised, grass-fed, pastured animals is due to the advantage of eating grasses from sun-drenched copper-rich soils that are not depleted due to chemicals. The copper is then passed on to the animal, and eventually, to the consumer.
Aussie Trace Minerals Electrolytes are derived from dehydrated sea water or salt lakes and are rich in magnesium and smaller quantities of naturally occurring minerals including potassium, sodium, and trace amounts of 70+ other elements. They are an excellent source of chloride, which is one of the main electrolytes. Chloride performs many roles in the body and must be constantly replenished. It combines with hydrogen in the stomach to make hydrochloric acid, a powerful digestive enzyme responsible for the breakdown of proteins, absorption of minerals, and activation of intrinsic factors, which help to absorb vitamin B12.
