General Health

When it comes to supporting general health select any one of the Healthy Start Paks. The more expensive ones contain higher quantities of individual nutrients and / or include products that contain more contemporary / advanced formulas. You can’t go wrong. Besides including all 90 nutrients essential to human health, Dr. Wallach has made sure that each Healthy Start Pak is fortified with his “secret sauce,” the essential trace mineral, minor mineral and rare earth mineral cofactors that make every thing else work. Youngevity is the only company of its kind that enjoys exclusive rights to Dr. Wallach’s secret sauce source material. Link here for more details.

The human body is an absolute miracle of Nature. As long as we are careful stewards of our health, as long as we avoid polluting ourselves with harmful substances (keep the “bad stuff” out), as long as we make healthy diet and lifestyle choices (put the “good stuff” in) and as long a as we fill the gaps by supplementing consistently with all 90 nutrients essential to human health, there is every reason to expect a life of optimal good health as our reward. .

Chances are you already know what to avoid and what to embrace but they bear repeating here. Dr. Wallach advises that we avoid starchy / sugary, high glycemic foods and instead rely on protein, good fats, fresh vegetables and low glycemic fruits for our daily caloric intake. Also, avoid vegetable oils, fried food, processed food and food containing gluten (wheat is the worst). In terms of lifestyle the advice, again, is pretty predictable. Moderate exercise (cardio as well as weight bearing), get plenty of sleep, drink clean water, eat clean food, avoid stress, connect with community, “smell the roses” and keep the toxins out. .

90 For Life: Foundation for General Health

Human beings require 90 essential nutrients for optimal function. These nutrients take the term "essential" since just like food, water, air, sleep, sunshine and so forth, they are "essential" to life. Certainly we can get by without them for time but by definition, ultimately and inevitably, for every essential nutrient we starve ourselves of we become subject to (on average) ten different degenerative deficiency diseases.

To guard against such a fate the smart move is to saturate our system with what Dr. Wallach calls his " 90 For Life." In this way we establish a comprehensive foundation, a sort of bank account that the body can draw upon to meet the biochemical requirements of a vast array of physical functions. Typically it takes 90 days of consistent supplementation to fill the account and then, once it is full, we can reduce to a "maintenance" intake which is calibrated according to body weight.

The Healthy Start Pak (HSP) consists of three products, Beyond Tangy Tangerine, Beyond OsteoFX and Ultimate EFA+, that together, deliver the 90 For Life. It is these three core products that, necessarily, form the centerpiece of any successful supplementation regimen. After all nutrients work in combination, not in isolation. Thus, whatever one's health challenge or goal it is important to START with the Healthy START Pack. Adjust contents to match body weight and then begin supplementing, consistently, day in and day out.

Youngevity’s Healthy Body Start Pak—Original

Beyond Tangy Tangerine (BTT)

Beyond Tangy Tangerine (BTT) is a powder that comes with a measuring “scoop” inside the canister. Measure two scoops per 100 pounds of body weight into a tall glass (12 oz or so) of room temperature water. Allow the powder to gently percolate into solution for about 3 minutes and then stir in what remains.

Beyond Tangy Tangerine contains 87 of the 90 nutrients essential to human health. It is our most advanced formula employing microcrystalline technology to fuse fruits and vegetables (115), with amino acids (12), vitamins (16), major minerals (various) and trace mineral cofactors (60). Performance value of the individual nutrients is greatly enhanced when fused in this manner. BTT boasts an extremely high ORAC score, a number that measures anti-oxidant firepower.

Beyond OsteoFX

Due to technical considerations, when we formulated the BTT, we had to pull out a lot of the calcium, magnesium and zinc. We simply could not fit as much in the BTT as we wanted to. This is why it is important to always combine the BTT with the Beyond OsteoFX. The two complement one another: one is strong where the other is weak and vice versa.

The Beyond OsteoFX is a white liquid. It is to be mixed in with the BTT in the tall glass of room temperature water (see above). Shake the bottle hard before serving and then measure out 2 Tablespoons of the Beyond OsteoFX. Refrigerate after opening. The Beyond OsteoFx rounds out the BTT perfectly delivering major minerals in the quantity our body requires, along with additional cofactors.

Ultimate EFA+

The BTT and the Beyond OsteoFx provide 87 of the 90 nutrients essential to human health and, together deliver sufficient quantity but they lack the 3 essential fats we need (omega 3, 6 & 9). Ultimate EFA+ gel caps contain those fats. Simply swallow a minimum of 3 EFA+ gel caps each and every day.

Youngevity’s Healthy Body Start Pak—Peach Fusion 2.0

Besides our original Healthy Start Pak we also offer the Healthy Start Pak Peach Fusion 2.0. Both include the EFA+ but “the Peach” as it is often called, substitutes the Peach Fusion 2.0 for the original Beyond Tangy and substitutes the powdered Beyond OsteoFX for the liquid Beyond OsteoFX. Both healthy start paks do the same job: they both deliver all 90 nutrients essential to human health and in a form the body can easily use. Either one can serve as a “90 For Life” foundational.

So what is the difference? Why would you choose one and not the other? They are basically the same price. The original contains 115 fruits and vegetables. The peach does not. The peach is certified organic and GMO free. The original is not. There are other differences as well. Please review the SUPPLEMENT FACTS sheet on each.

Regarding the Beyond OsteoFX if you like the convenience of a powdered form then the powdered Beyond OsteoFX is for you. They each cost the same. Otherwise the liquid is fine. Some find the liquid easier to work with; some find the powdered easier to work with.

Less Expensive Alternative to the Healthy Body Start Pak

Dr. Wallach’s “Secret Sauce”

People often ask, “What makes Dr. Wallach’s supplements different? Why do they work while other supplements don’t?” The reason Dr. Wallach’s supplements can effect real change is they contain Doc’s “secret sauce.” The term refers to the trace mineral, minor mineral and rare earth mineral micro-nutrient cofactors that must be present for the body to make optimal use of every other nutrient. We enjoy exclusive rights to the organic source material for this product and include this product in nearly every supplement we purvey since it makes everything else work. Certainly they are in both the BTT and the Beyond OsteoFX.

We offer our liquid, organic, colloidal trace mineral product as a stand-alone product named ”Majestic Earth Minerals” (item code 13203). If the cost of the Healthy Start Pak or any of the Specialty Packs is prohibitive, the Majestic Earth Minerals (MEM) offer a less expensive alternative. Saturate your system with the MEM (requires 4 bottles for one adult for one month, item code 13203c) and at least you will be getting what you can’t find anywhere else: the micro nutrient cofactors we are most at risk for in term of degenerative deficiency disease. Then simply eat intelligently and go ahead and use less sophisticated and less expensive supplements from other companies to get the rest of the 90 you need. You will find you will get more mileage out of less expensive supplements when they are combined with the MEM (Doc’s secret sauce).

The term “secret sauce” is also used to refer to any of a great number of “add-on” or specialty products we offer. The add-on products can be added on to the 90 For Life to target specific health concerns. For example, an add-on product for blood sugar challenge is SweetEze (item code 21014); an add-on or secret sauce product for musculo skeletal challenge is GlucoGel (item code 21252). Select one of the six specialty packs below to learn more. Add on products are not strictly necessary to achieving one’s individual health goals but they can accelerate the process.
