Stevia is organic, non-GMO, rich in prebiotics
Wholesome Sweeteners, based in Sugarland, Texas, believes it has created the best-tasting stevia in the world. Its stevia is calorie-free, has no artificial fillers, is low glycemic, certified organic, gluten-free and non-GMO verified. Organic Stevia is an all-natural, calorie-free sweetener that is a perfect alternative to highly processed artificial sweeteners like the pink, blue, and yellow packets derived from chemical processes. Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Stevia comes from an organic stevia plant leaf sustainably grown. Unlike conventional stevia, our Organic Stevia is an enzymatically enhanced full spectrum stevia leaf extract, holistically extracted from the plant through a natural process giving it a smooth, mellow sweetness.
The company utilizes the full spectrum extraction of sweetness from the whole stevia leaf in order to retain the micronutrient properties of the stevia leaf so often removed during conventional processing. To maintain the mellow taste, we blend our Organic Stevia with organic blue agave inulin, a natural prebiotic than can aid in digestion. Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Stevia is now available in a 75 count Value Size box, a new 35 count Trial Size box and a 1000 count Food Service case.
ALP Life Sciences sells fish oil in triglyceride form
ALP Life Sciences LLC's ALP High 3 Omega 3 fish oil supplement intriglyceride form, with 1200 mg of EPA and DHA in a daily serving of two soft gels, is now available at ALPLifeSciences.com. ALP High 3 is the natural triglyceride form of omega-3 fish oil, not an ethyl ester form. Most fish oil currently available is in the ethyl ester form, which can reduce absorption by more than 50 percent, and must be converted to the natural triglyceride form by our bodies prior to absorption.
ALP High 3 is also enteric coated, increasing absorption by 60 percent or more over non-enteric coated products. ALP High 3 can deliver greater than 10 times more omega-3 absorption than other formulations. The company's ALP Omega 3 Calculator helps teach the actual impact of the different forms and formulations of fish oil on absorption and bioavailability. Physicians can register with ALP to participate in the ALP High 3 sample program.
