Master Formula is an amazing Young Living supplement and makes my list of top five favorite YL supplements! Simply put, it has amazing vitamins, minerals, and food based nutriments (nourishment) that can support your overall health and wellness.
Master Formula uses a Synergistic Suspension Isolation process – SSI Technology- to deliver the different nutrients to your body. Basically this means that different ingredients have been separated into three different capsules depending on how each ingredient works with each other. Basically, the ingredients have been split into teams to be the most effective. Perhaps this will make more sense as we describe each capsule.
The first capsule has fat soluble vitamins A, D3, E, and K, along with essential oils (which are, as we know, also fat soluble) Turmeric, Cardamom, Clove, Fennel, Ginger. So the fat soluble vitamins and the fat soluble essential oils are all together in one capsule. Fat soluble, with fat soluble, working together, absorbing and metabolizing together.
The second capsule is a powder capsule (actually two capsules), which contains vitamin A, water soluble B-vitamins in organic form, folate, and mineral chelates (zinc, iron, magnesium, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium, and molybdenum). Often times people are alarmed when they hear folate is in Master Formula. This is because they are thinking of Folic. Folate is naturally occurring from vitamin B9 from an organic food blend. Simply put, folic is the synthetic version of folate, while folate occurs naturally.
Mineral chelates (pronounced key-lates) are minerals that are already in a form the human body can easily absorb, unlike typical minerals. Also, mineral chelates are already bound to an amino acid, which makes it much easier for your body to absorb and metabolize. Also, mineral chelates are great because they are ionically neutral, which allows them to not block the absorption of other vitamins and minerals, due to their chelated form. Typical minerals can compete with each other for absorption, as well as block the absorption of vitamins. Chelated minerals do not do that; regular minerals are like a defensive line, not letting anyone in, and mineral chelates are the cheerleaders welcoming everyone and wanting the entire squad there and absorbed!
Finally, the third capsule is actually a phyto caplet, phyto simply means that from a plant. This caplet contains water soluble vitamin C, calcium, potassium, choline, and then a WHOLE BUNCH (they call it a spectra) of a fruit, veggie, and herb concentrate blend.
As few additional goodies about Master Formula is it full of antioxidants, it was created to replace three different products (Master His, Master Hers, and True Source), it also has gut supporting prebiotics. Basically, if probiotics provide your gut with good bacteria, prebiotics fertilize or feed the good bacteria that is already there.
I hope you have learned something today! Master Formula is a wonderful multi-vitamin and if you are not taking it…YOU SHOULD BE!!
