MICELLE

Micelle

I am very suspicious about the word "micelle". Different companies get novel ideas about getting maximum absorption of certain compounds including vitamins. When Vitamin A and carotene are broken down (fragmented) into micelles (teeny, weeny fragments) they can get through the intestinal absorptive cell more efficiently. Is that good? I think not. It was and still is being used with Slow K (potassium supplements) and has been literally outlawed, but the company is still doing it. It is destroying intestinal cells by unbalancing them. Intestinal cells in healthy people "know" what to absorb - they have cellular controls. With all these new ideas of getting things through "come Hell or Highwater" I believe damage is being done.

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
