Natural Biology | Norwegian Omega 3

Not all fish oils are created equal, some are superior and supported by good science.  Natural Biology spent over 10 years before we endorsed a fish oil.   We partnered with Omega Protein because they started offering Manhaden single source fish oil with not only high amounts of DHA and EPA but it is the only fish oil with naturally occurring DPA which is the missing link - thus making DHA and EPA uptake more efficient and improving the efficacy of fish oils.   Here's video of the people who catch and process our fish oil - pretty cool

Natural Biology Hot List

From time to time, people ask me "what's hot."   From my perspective,  I immediately ask myself are they asking which ingredients are getting "buzz" regardless of the health benefits or are they asking me which ingredients have a growing body of research to support serious health change - because you actually took the right ingredient, at the right amount, with the proper purity and potency - and followed the guidelines for use.   I apologize immediately if that sounds negative but I think it is positive because I firmly believe after hearing story after story for the past 10 years - good supplements change one's life for a brighter future.

One story always comes to mind.  There was a 70 year old couple who were literally bed ridden, starting first on Okinawa Coral Calcium, and then began to add the EVEREST Protocol - and within six months this couple was playing Alta Tennis a few times each week.   Another story is of a Mother who for over 7 years had seen doctor after doctor,  took anti-depressants, had not cooked breakfast for her kids for 7 years nor could she clean her own house.   She started the EVEREST Protocol out of desperation and within 2 weeks was getting up driving her kids to school, cooking them breakfast, and cleaning her house.   She called me and asked me "What the hell is going on, I feel great for the first time in a long time."

While those stories are precious in their own right, day after day, we hear people telling us they get sick less, they have more energy, they are sleeping soundly, and just have a strong overall sense of well-being - and feel younger than their age.  In my own case, at 59 I have not had a cold or the flu in over ten years - and I feel 30 feet off a roof a year ago - broke several ribs and a shoulder - and I have recovered faster than the physicians said I would and I've taken all the right supplements to support my injury and reduce the inflammation and pain.  Now I just take the EVEREST Protocol which meets my growing needs of a demanding life, age, and stress levels.   I feel much younger than my age.   People tell me I look younger than my age, but I'd like to look ever younger - ha ha.

Here's my Natural Biology Top 10 List...

  • 1.  Okinawa Coral Calcium - Marine Grade SMP 44 Quality
  • 2.  Resveratrol - extracted from French Red Wine Grape Extract yielding no less than 5% trans-resveratrol which is not the mainstream market (do not take polygonum cuspidatum)
  • 3.   Green Tea Extract - no other ingredient has been studied more and the health benefits amazing
  • 4.   Omega 3 - I really like 1000mg of Krill Oil Daily but I also like Norwegian Omega 3 which contains not only DHA and EPA but DPA - the missing link in most fish oils.  
  • 5.  CoQ10 - for energy and cardiovascular health this antioxidant is amazing.  
  • 6.  Siberian Rhodolia Rosea - this adaptogen helps your body adapt to stress, increases energy, stimulates libido, and no serious supplement should be without it.  (EVEREST Earth & Sea Formula)
  • 7.  Chorella - this blue green algae has naturally occurring vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and antioxidants and helps the body clear toxins.
  • 8.  Vitamin D and Vitamin C - most people take far too less of both of these essential vitamins for building a strong immune system and most American have serious Vitamin D deficiencies.   This does not mean one does not need Vitamin A or the B Vitamins and increasingly Vitamin K - but we tend to get a lot of these vitamins in food sources.
  • 9.  Whey Protein Isolate -  there is no better method to insure you are getting all the amino acids in your diet, both the required 8 and the non-essential which also boost good health.
  • 10.  Probiotics - this is the good bacteria that helps build a healthy digestive system.   Some estimate that 80% of your immune system starts in your gut and eating out and poor food sources destroy healthy bacteria in your gut - good probiotics restores balance.  

Conclusion:  Take Natural Biology's EVEREST Protocol, add Ultra Probiotics, and use our Micro Whey - and you have a comprehensive and complete supplement store with 5 products that will meet 90% of people's need for a path to excellent health.   Of course, here are a few other pointers:

  • Exercise - walk daily
  • Stress Management - meditation, breathing exercises, prayer, etc.
  • Diet - eat the  Mediterranean diet . If you are over-weight, consider a gluten free diet. 
  • Socially Active - have an active social and family life
  • Natural Biology Supplements - Balanced, Comprehensive, Affordable

Natural Biology Emerging Evidence for Vitamins & Health

In the past 100 years vitamins have been found to play a vital role in the health and wellbeing of human beings;  however, the full benefits of many vitamins or micro-nutrients has yet to be discovered.    This is a new and exiting field of science and Natural Biology is committed to be a significant research think tank for the world of natural vitamins including all micro-nutrients and macro-nutrient which include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, Omega 3s, enzymes, probiotics, glyconutrients, phytonutrients, and adaptogens.   While Natural Biology incorporates herbs into our formulations from time to time, herbs overall are just coming into their own and markets are catching up realizing fresh and medical benefits are forthcoming if the process, testing, and research continues.

There are good many of major university studies that validate the link between the consumption of high quality supplements and health, and there are not many areas that do not show great promise.

In recent years Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Resveratrol, Co-Q10, and a number of antioxidants have been backed by solid science and clinical studies - using human beings not just rats in labs.   For example scientist have discovered high doses of Vitamin D could result in reduce menstrual cramping in women who have severe problems.   The challenge is for the medical community to come to grips with these reality and work closely with vitamin experts who understand quality and efficacy.    We are in the early pioneer days of exploring these realities and the promise supplements offer.

Natural Biology remains committed to provide high quality solutions to supplements at family prices - and education on top of these effective protocols.   Make sure and visit our main website and sign up for TRANSCEND - our Newsletter about Mind/Body/Soul and the world of Natural Vitamins.

The Biology & Science of Natural Biology

Natural Biology is the ultimate natural vitamin supplement company of Natural Science. 


  1. Natural Biology supplements are 100% natural and made fresh and are guaranteed for purity and potency.
  2. Natural Biology uses micro-nutrients from the best source in the world; however, all are processed and tested in the USA under the most stringent standards.
  3. Natural Biology uses orthomolecular modeling developed by Dr. Linus Pauling where the correct potency is used in each formula to nourish, protect, and rejuvenate cell activity -thus a higher efficacy.  
  4. Natural Biology uses only ingredients that have extensive support from a meta-analysis of university research and does not use buzz items that may be market hot but have poor evidence to support claims. 
  5. Natural Biology believes more in the actual supplement means one can achieve the ultimate supplement plan by taking less.  Other companies recommend 40-60 capsules or tablets per day to achieve a balanced and comprehensive supplement plan whereas Natural Biology has perfected the EVEREST Protocol that consist of 7-10 units per day and clearly exceeds the benefits in every sense of more extensive protocols.  
  6. Natural Biology practices progressive formulation which means all formulations are updated as ingredients improve and research demonstrates better methodologies.  This also improves efficacy because the more advanced formulations change a little bit over time which keeps the orthomolecular activity high - thus improved absorption and efficacy.
  7. Natural Biology offers custom style high end supplements at family prices.  Simply put, you get more for less.   Most supplement companies have low cost and some of their most expensive products have huge mark-ups or cheaper products consist solely of cheap Chinese imports - where quality is suspect.

Natural Biology Brain Health Research

Brain health—from memory to focus to mood—is one of the most promising growth categories in nutrition.  Natural Biology offers Brain Rocket which provide key nutrients for brain health but equally stimulates oxygen flow with the miracle micro-nutrient vinpocetine.   
“The category is beginning to skyrocket,” Daniel Amen, MD, a psychiatrist and author of Use Your Brain to Change Your Age (Crown Archetype, 2012) and other books about brain health.  "Did you know 11,000 turn 60 everyday and one of the biggest fears is Alzheimer’s disease, but no treatment that really works" according to Dr. Amen.  
The Alzheimer’s Association reports that 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, which is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. By 2050, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s is expected to hit 16 million and cost the country $1.1 trillion. A recent Harvard University survey found that adults fear Alzheimer’s more than heart disease, stroke or diabetes—only cancer is feared more. The anxiety is justified: Deaths from Alzheimer’s jumped 66 percent between 2005 and 2008 while deaths from other major diseases decreased.
Equally important, mood and sleep health are other important elements of the brain health category. More than 11 percent of Americans over age 12 take antidepressant medications, and almost 20 percent of U.S. consumers suffer serious anxiety-spectrum disorders.


Cognitive Health Micro-Nutrients / Ingredients

Well-established research underlies the brain function supportive effects of folic acid combined with vitamin B12, magnesium (including Magtein which is an ingredient Natural Biology is research and will release soon in a new product but the difference is this product will be based on the research and not the hype), omega-3s DHA and EPA (Norwegian Omega 3 and Arctic Ocean Krill Oil) and other healthy fats, citicoline (including Cognizin) and acetylcholine enhancers—such as DMAE, vinpocetine (Brain Rocket) and phosphatidylserine.

Dr. Oz on Cognitive Health

  The Dr. Oz Show fueled significant consumer interest in specific weight loss ingredients, such as green coffee bean extract, 7-Keto, African mango and raspberry ketones. Given the growing need for natural solutions to support cognitive health, mood and sleep, Dr. Oz has been stepping up his focus on brain health as well. In May, for example, his show featured a five-step Alzheimer’s prevention plan, which included this supplement advice: “If you’re only going to take one supplement, DHA is the one you need.”
Natural Biology will continue to lead the way with new cognitive health products but equally important EVEREST Earth and Sea Formula and the EVEREST Protocol already provide a strong foundation for cognitive health and is one every adult should evaluate.

Natural Biology Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Meta-Analysis

Natural Biology Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Research 

Chronic fatigue syndrome patients often have  psychiatric disorders such as major depressive disorders and anxiety disorders. However,  the relationship in all honesty is not known and there are no doubt many physiological reasons or outcomes.

Therefore, a two-year prospective follow-up study was carried out on chronic fatigue syndrome patients with psychiatric disorders.

Methodology: A total of 155 patients who met the Japanese  case definition of chronic fatigue syndrome were enrolled in this study.

Patients with  psychiatric disorders received psychiatric treatment in addition to medical therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome. Seventy patients participated in a follow-up interview approximately 24 months later.

Research Findings: Of the 70 patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, 33 patients were diagnosed as having  psychiatric disorders including 18 major depressive disorders.
Sixteen patients with psychiatric disorders and 8 patients with major depressive disorders did not fulfill the criteria of any psychiatric disorders at the follow up.

As for chronic fatigue syndrome, 9 out of the 70 patients had recovered at the follow up. There is no significant influence of  psychiatric disorders on the outcome of chronic fatigue syndrome.


Chronic fatigue syndrome patients have a relatively high prevalence of  psychiatric disorders, especially major depressive disorders.

The outcomes of chronic fatigue syndrome and psychiatric disorders are independent.

Therefore treatment of  psychiatric disorders is necessary in addition to the medical treatment given for chronic fatigue syndrome.
