ARE PROPER NUTRITION PRODUCTS FDA APPROVED?

Proper Nutrition products are dietary supplements – defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as products intended for ingestion that contain a “dietary ingredient” intended to add further nutritional value to supplement the diet. The FDA does not approve dietary supplements; supplements are regulated like foods and do not require the FDA’s approval of safety and efficacy prior to sale. However, this does not mean that supplements are “unregulated.” In fact, virtually every facet of dietary supplement manufacturing, labeling, and advertising is covered by extensive regulations issued and enforced by the FDA and Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Proper Nutrition is in compliance with all regulations.

Our dietary supplements are all-natural, 100% drug-free, and prepared using only the gentlest methods, without harsh physical or chemical processing. Our supplements work gently with your body, and produce no side-effects. They contain only natural ingredients known to be safe and effective, and have no known contraindications.

WHAT IS SEACURE®?

Although Seacure® is considered a dietary supplement, you might also think of it as a “whole-food” product because it is made from fish fillets, just like you’d buy at the supermarket. Therefore, Seacure® is whole food protein concentrate made from white fish that provides bioactive peptides, biogenic amines, omega-3 fatty acids, and valuable minerals. Proper Nutrition’s patent-pending process gently breaks down the fish protein into amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and peptides (several amino acids bound together but not enough to be a protein).

IS SEACURE® SUPPOSED TO HAVE A FISH ODOR?

Yes - and it is completely normal.

CAN THE COLOR OF THE POWDER IN SEACURE® CAPSULES VARY?

Yes. Depending on the season and the temperature of the water, the color of the powder may vary. 

SHOULD I TAKE SEACURE® WITH OR WITHOUT FOOD?

Either. The protein is already pre-digested for the body, so it can be absorbed with or without food. 

DO I TAKE ALL 6 (SIX) SEACURE® CAPSULES AT ONCE PER DAY?

Suggested use for adults is to take 6 (six) capsules daily or as directed by a health care professional. You may take all 6 capsules at once, or you may take them throughout the day, or at meals. 

WHAT IS SEAVIVE®?

SeaVive® is uniquely formulated to address total immune health by combining 40% Seacure®, 40% Colostrum 70/40®, 10% Beta glucan, and 10% Vitamin C. SeaVive®’s natural contents provide essential immunoglobulin and other powerful immune factors to help prevent the daily threat from viruses and harmful bacteria, particularly in the digestive tract and lungs. SeaVive® also increases the number of circulating white blood cells, stimulates phagocytes and elevates levels of non-specific antibodies.  With this unique combination of proteins and immune stimulant it is an ideal product for the weak and elderly.

WHAT IS INTESTIVE®?

Intestive is uniquely formulated to promote intestinal health and maintain health bowel function by combining 90% Seacure, 8% Colostrum 70/40, and 2% Boswellia. Intestive® supplies your body with essential proteins, in easily absorbable forms of bioactive peptides and amino acids, as well as Omega 3 fatty acids. Studies indicate that by allowing your body to assimilate these essential proteins, Intestive® helps to support the cells in your gastrointestinal tract and maintain healthy bowel functions. It also supplies your body with lactose-free, casein-free colostrum to support your intestinal immune system.  Boswellia has natural anti-inflammatory properties reported to help soothe an irritated intestinal lining.

WHAT IS COLOSTRUM 70/40®?

Colostrum 70/40% is a bovine colostrum, which contains 70% protein and 40% IgG – the highest percentage of potent immune factors available on the market today. It provides growth factors and immune factors, which are essential for building lean muscles, enhancing performance and for wound or tissue repair. It also supports the intestinal tract by coating it with a mucous-like barrier which reduces the chance of foreign substances penetrating the wall of the intestine.

WHAT QUALITY CONTROLS ARE IN PLACE FOR COLOSTRUM 70/40®?

Regarding colostrum, there are good manufacturing procedures (GMPs) and a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point system (HAACP program) in place for all of our collection dairies. HAACP is a process control system that identifies where hazards might occur during food production, and puts into place stringent actions to take to prevent the hazards from occurring. All colostrum must be collected and placed into sanitized single use containers and immediately transferred to a freezer to maintain product activity and quality. Freezing colostrum at this point does not reduce its dietary benefits and is necessary to reduce the risk of bacterial contamination. The colostrum liquid is thermally treated by our proprietary low-temperature pasteurization process, which has been reviewed and approved by state and federal agencies. Our low-nitrite emission, top-of-the-line spray-dryers have been specifically engineered to dry colostrum with a minimum of heat exposure, thus assuring high activity of vital immune factors. 

SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT POSSIBLE ANTIBIOTIC OR PESTICIDE CONTAMINATION WITH COLOSTRUM 70/40®?

No. All of our colostrum comes from U.S. dairies that are closely monitored to assure product quality. Pesticide contamination of Grade A dairy cattle feed is tightly regulated in the United States. Pesticide contamination in colostrum from U.S. sources is less of a concern than promoted by importers of foreign colostrum products. The U.S. dairy industry is a model of safety and quality for the rest of the world. Antibiotic usage is also tightly monitored. Beta-lactams are not allowed in the human milk supply in the U.S. Under state law, dairies must demonstrate that our colostrum for the human market is beta-lactam (antibiotic) free.
