Can I use more than one sachet a day?

The product is based on a daily use of 1 sachet from Monday to Friday, but it is no problem to use more than 1 sachet on daily base.

Can I mix the sachets with something hot, like soup?

We don’t recommend this. The active beneficial enzymes in Ultra Start can be damaged by too much heat. For best results, do not mix your Ultra Start in anything warmer than body temperature.

Can I mix or blend my Ultra Start and consume it later in the day?

Although this might be convenient, it is not the best idea. Ultra Start contains many valuable active enzymes. These enzymes are dormant in the dried powder and become activated when mixed with liquid. You will therefore experience the most benefits if you drink your Ultra Start within an hour or so of mixing it.

I avoid sugars and fruit juices. How can I mix my Ultra Start?

Use plain water! If that is unappealing to you, experiment with cooled fruity herbal teas or vegetable juices. You can also add a drop or two of stevia; it has a sweet flavor without any sugars.

Are the ingredients of Ultra Start all organic?

Yes, all ingredients are organic. NutraLinea is committed to using certified organic and wildcrafted ingredients. Not only does this protect our environment and our bodies from harmful toxins, but it assures optimal nutrition and potency. All our ingredients pass rigorous testing for the absence of pesticides, herbicides, pathogenic bacteria, and heavy metals (an indication of previous pesticide or herbicide use).

Additionally, Ultra Start does not contain any fillers or artificial sweeteners, colorings, flavorings, additives, or preservatives. We never use chemicals, ever! Moreover, none of the ingredients in Ultra Start are grown with genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Should I take an occasional break from drinking Ultra Start?

Ultra Start has been carefully formulated to provide vital and balancing support on a daily basis. Just as there is no need to take an occasional break from eating vegetables, there is no need to interrupt your use of Ultra Start. In fact, many of the herbs and other foods in Ultra Sart are tonic in nature. This means they provide the greatest strengthening benefits when consumed regularly, in balanced quantities, for long periods of time.

Is the product suitable for vegetarian or vegans?

Yes.

Does the product contain gluten?

No.

Can you tell me more about one of the theme and main ingredients, Chlorella?

Country of origin: South Korea / Japan

Grown in hermetically sealed stainless-steel tanks in a pharmaceutical clean room environment, our Pure Chlorella is never exposed to the open environment, which completely eliminates the need for the common practice of using pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other chemicals. Nearly all other chlorella powder products, which are typically grown in outdoor ponds, are treated with these harmful chemicals. We control every growing condition to optimize our chlorella’s nutrition, purity and consistency.  With its soft cell wall, our chlorella does not need to undergo harsh or aggressive cell wall fracturing processes, which can degrade and harm the highly valuable and sensitive phytonutrients. 

Algae such as Chlorella also offer a full range of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, and possess the densest nutrient composition of any food. They are the best food source of beta-carotene and provide both the cis and trans forms of this important antioxidant as well as the less commonly known carotenes xanthophyll and zeaxanthin. Additionally, algae offer remarkable amounts of iron and vitamin B12, making them very beneficial in a vegetarian diet.

Our chlorella powder is highly concentrated and cold temperature-processed.

Beets also contain a 100% natural form of betaine, a key body nutrient. A recent study in the Journal of Applied Physiology showed that beet juice consumption increased stamina and exercise tolerance.  Beet Juice is an appropriate choice before a workout because of their high carbohydrate content. The sugar and other carbohydrates in beets fuel your body with easily accessible calories for quick and high energy.

Our beet powder is highly concentrated and cold temperature-processed. 

Can you tell me more about one of the theme and main ingredients, Parsley?

Country of origin: USA

Parsley provides nature’s best carotenoids and is a nutrition powerhouse of a few known anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and flavonoids (lutein, zeaxanthin, apiole, rutin and apigenin).

This tiny-leaf plant is rich with chlorophyll, vitamin A, B, C, and K, folate and iron. It has high beneficial mineral contents like calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, vanadium, and zinc.

Our parsley powder is highly concentrated and cold temperature-processed. 

Can you tell me more about one of the theme and main ingredients, Shiitake?

Country of origin: USA

Medicinal mushrooms have been treasured for 7,000 years as profound healing agents. Mushrooms have been shown in numerous modern scientific studies to possess medicinal properties. Seven mushrooms in particular have demonstrated remarkable health benefits: the Asian mushrooms Cordyceps sinensis (cordyceps), Hericium erinaceus (lion’s mane), Coriolus versicolor (turkey tails), Ganoderma lucidum (reishi), Lentinula edodes (shiitake), and Grifola frondosa (maitake); and the Brazilian mushroom Agaricus blazei (Agaricus).

We choose for Shiitake in our blend. Shiitake contains an abundance of enzymes, polysaccharides and protein-bound polysaccharides, including the highly beneficial beta-D-glucans. Thus, they all possess significant immune-strengthening properties.

Our Shiitake powder is highly concentrated and cold temperature-processed. 

Can you tell me more about one of the theme and main ingredients, Bilberry?

Country of origin: Poland

Bilberries are found in very acidic, nutrient-poor soils throughout the temperate and subarctic regions of the world. One characteristic of bilberries is that they produce single or paired berries on the bush instead of clusters, as the blueberry does.

The fruit is smaller than that of the blueberry but with a fuller taste. Bilberries are darker in colour, and usually appear near black with a slight shade of purple.

Bilberries are extremely difficult to grow and are thus seldom cultivated. Fruits are mostly collected from wild plants growing on publicly accessible lands throughout northern and central Europe, where they are plentiful – for example, up to a fifth (17-21%) of the land area of Sweden is covered in Bilberry-bushes. Bilberries can be picked by a berry-picking rake like lingonberries, but are more susceptible to damage. Bilberries are softer and juicier than blueberries, making them difficult to transport.

Our bilberry powder is highly concentrated and cold temperature-processed. 

Are there any side effects known for NutraLinea Ultra Start?

A possible side effect could be you will have a green stool. The green color is from the abundance of chlorophyll found in the juices and algaes. Chlorophyll is a highly beneficial pigment, rich in nutrients, that enhances the body’s natural purification and cleansing process. As your body becomes accustomed to deep nourishment at the cellular level, it begins to eliminate toxins from cells and transports them, along with fluid, to the colon for rapid elimination. For most people, this is a crucial component in creating more radiant health and optimal energy. It is healthy and normal for people to have one or more bowel movements a day.

But carrots are also brimming with many other health goodies like alpha-carotene, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin K. A newly discovered phytonutrient class called polyacetylenes, including falcarinol and falcarindiol, has been shown to work in synergy with beta-carotene to up the ante when it comes to antioxidant potential.

Abundant in enzymes, antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals, carrot juice fuels our core, life-giving processes and supports good health.

There are many health benefits from carrot carotenoids, from immune health, vision, and blood sugar control, to cardiovascular disease risk reduction. Epidemiological studies found an association of diets high in carotenoids and lower heart disease risk. A study of 1,300 elderly persons in Massachusetts found that at least one serving of carrots and/or squash each day resulted in a 60% reduction in their risk of heart attacks compared to those who ate less than one serving of these carotenoid-rich foods per day. Beta-carotene is essential to ensuring healthy night vision. Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A which in the retina is transformed into rhodopsin, a purple pigment necessary for night-vision. It also provides protection against macular degeneration and cataracts. High carotenoid intake has been linked with a 20% decrease in postmenopausal breast cancer and an up to 50% decrease in the incidence of cancers of the bladder, cervix, prostate, colon, larynx, and esophagus. As little as one carrot per day could cut the rate of lung cancer in half with this naturally occurring source of carotenoids, which would include alpha-carotene.  Carotenoids are also beneficial to blood sugar control and decreased insulin resistance.

Is the Lupinen Protein Shake an interesting product for me?

The Lupinen Protein Shake fits very well in high-protein diets and is based on high value proteins and a well balanced composition of soluble and insoluble fibres. The product is ideal for people willing to reduce weight or for muscle recovery. Maca is also known for an amazing energy boost.

Can you tell me more about one of the main ingredients, Lupinen?

Lupin(e) is a vegetable source of proteins. Lupine(n) are also known as Lupinus or Lupines. The herbal plants are widely distributed in the Mediterranean region and in America.

Lupine contains extremely high levels of protein for the muscles (much higher than the common protein plants). The protein-rich seeds of the Lupin plant are remarkably rich in Arginine, a conditionally essential amino acid that is involved in blood pressure regulation.

May support weight loss. Due to its high protein and fibre content, Lupine may enhance satiety and thus help with slimming. In a Australian human study, the effects of Lupine on satiety and energy intake were investigated. Results were that participants that consumed Lupine at breakfast had a significantly higher satiety during the day. Lupine is a traditional blood sugar lowering remedy, especially for diabetes. More stable blood sugar levels may also help delay the onset of hunger and reduce sweet cravings. Lupine seeds are also very high in fibers and low in fat.

Can you tell me more about one of the main ingredients, Maca?

Lepidium Meyenii is the Latin name for Maca. Related to the potato family but looking more like a radish, Maca is a root that grows in extremely high altitudes in Peru.

It is regarded as a highly nutritious food (similar to cereal grains) that enhances strength and endurance and acts as an aphrodisiac. Maca is also known for an amazing energy boost.

Both sexes may be attracted to its long history of use as a safe herb to relieve stress and increase the ability to handle it… promote emotional balance and increased vitality and physical strength.

Menopause… Fertility… Stress… And general health are all MASSIVELY influenced by our hormones. Maca is excellent in menopause and recommended to anyone who has fertility problems or tiredness resulting from hormonal stress, osteoporosis, PMT or other hormonal imbalance.

I has favorable effects on energy and mood, may decrease anxiety and improve sexual desire. Maca has also been shown to improve sperm production, sperm motility, and semen volume.

Maca has been shown to reduce prostate size in rats. Maca also showed multiple egg follicle maturation in females.

In one four-month double blind study on early-postmenopausal women, there was an 84% reduction in menopausal symptoms including fewer hot flushes and night sweats, a significant improvement in bone density, no increase in weight, less depression, irritability, insomnia and mood swings.

Another study looked at the effect of 4 months treatment with maca tablets on semen quality in nine adult men. Treatment with maca resulted in increased seminal volume, sperm count, and sperm motility. A 12-week randomized controlled trial looked at 1,500 mg maca, 3,000 mg maca, or placebo. After 8 weeks, there was an improvement in sexual desire in the men taking maca.

The study, funded by Peruvian pharmaceuticals company Hersil, also found maca reduced blood pressure and had no adverse effect on the heart.

Can you tell me more about one of the main ingredients, Inulin?

Inulin has a prebiotic effect and acts as a kind of energy source for the good bacteria.  The plant microfibers also have a favourable influence on the moisture levels in the intestines.  A prebiotic is a non-digestible food ingredient that beneficially affects the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or the activity of bacteria in the colon.

Inulin improves the function of the colon as other fibres do. Inulin prevents constipation and is used for high blood fats, including cholesterol and triglycerides. It is also used for weight loss, and as a food additive to improve taste.

How does it work? Inulin is not digested or absorbed in the stomach. It goes to the bowels where bacteria are able to use it to grow. It supports the growth of a special kind of bacteria that are associated with improving bowel function and general health. Inulin decreases the body’s ability to make certain kinds of fats.

Can you tell me more about one of the main ingredients, Milk protein?

In our Lupinen Shake we use a mixture of Whey Protein and Casein Protein. These two milk proteins are both excellent sources of all the essential amino acids, but they differ in one important aspect—Whey is a fast-digesting protein and Casein is a slow-digesting protein. Research shows these proteins support greater increases in lean body mass and decreases in body fat as part of a resistance training program. Whey stimulates protein synthesis and Casein offers a positive protein balance.

Whey protein is a mixture of globular proteins isolated from whey, the liquid material created as a by-product of cheese production.

Whey protein is considered a complete protein and contains all 9 essential amino acids and is low in lactose content. Whey is digested fast which means it is emptied from the stomach quickly, resulting in a rapid and large increase in plasma amino acids. Whey also has higher levels of leucine, a potent amino acid that stimulates protein synthesis, then casein.

Some preclinical studies in rodents have suggested that whey protein may possess anti-inflammatory or anti-cancer properties. The effects of whey protein on human health are of great interest and are currently being investigated as a way of reducing disease risk, as well as a possible supplementary treatment for several diseases The use of whey protein as a source of amino acids and its effect on reducing the risks of diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes is the focus of ongoing research. Whey is an abundant source of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which are used to stimulate protein synthesis. In particular, leucine plays a key role in initiating the transcription of protein synthesis.When leucine is ingested in high amounts, such as with whey protein supplementation, there is greater stimulation of protein synthesis, which may speed recovery and adaptation to stress (exercise). Whey protein can be very effective before and after a workout and first thing in the morning

Casein proteins are making up 80% of the proteins in cow milk. Casein has a wide variety of uses, from being a major component of cheese, to use as a food additive, to a binder for safety matches. As a food source, casein supplies amino acids, carbohydrates, and the two inorganic elements calcium and phosphorus. Casein has a slower rate of digestion, and results in a slow but steady release of amino acids into circulation. Casein has a slower rate of digestion, and results in a slow but steady release of amino acids into circulation.

NutraLinea Lupinen Protein Shake is the ideal mix – Whey stimulates protein synthesis and Casein offers a positive protein balance. Since whey rapidly increases protein synthesis and casein blocks protein breakdown, a combination of both is therefore ideal. Whey + Casein.

Are there any side effects known for NutraLinea Lupinen Shake?

The product can have a laxative effect with excessive consuming.

Can you tell me more about one of the main ingredients, Lupinen?

Lupin(e) is a vegetable source of proteins. Lupine(n) are also known as Lupinus or Lupines. The herbal plants are widely distributed in the Mediterranean region and in America.

Lupine contains extremely high levels of protein for the muscles (much higher than the common protein plants). The protein-rich seeds of the Lupin plant are remarkably rich in Arginine, a conditionally essential amino acid that is involved in blood pressure regulation.

May support weight loss. Due to its high protein and fibre content, Lupine may enhance satiety and thus help with slimming. In a Australian human study, the effects of Lupine on satiety and energy intake were investigated. Results were that participants that consumed Lupine at breakfast had a significantly higher satiety during the day. Lupine is a traditional blood sugar lowering remedy, especially for diabetes. More stable blood sugar levels may also help delay the onset of hunger and reduce sweet cravings. Lupine seeds are also very high in fibers and low in fat.

Can you tell me more about one of the main ingredients, Aloe Vera powder 100x?

The Aloe Vera powder we use in the Lupinen Tablets is a 100x concentration. Per tablet with a total content of 10 mg. this means 1.000 gram Aloe Vera powder 1x.

Aloe Vera contains over 200 active components including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, polysaccharide, and fatty acids- no wonder it’s used for such a wide range of remedies.

Aloe Vera contains many vitamins including A, C, E, folic acid, choline, B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B6. Aloe Vera is also one of the few plants that contains vitamin B12. Some of the 20 minerals found in Aloe Vera include: calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, selenium, sodium, iron, potassium, copper, manganese.  Aloe Vera is also known as an immune enhancer because of its high level of anti-oxidants, which help combat the unstable compounds known as free-radicals, contributing to the aging process.

The Vitamin B12 in the Lupinen Tablets have a RDA of 1112% per tablet, is this correct?

The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) of Vitamin B12 is 2,5 Microgram (µg).  A Lupinen tablet contains 27,8 Microgram (µg).  When you take the recommended 9 tablets the total intake is 250,2 Microgram (µg).  This means 100x higher compared to the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA). Studies shows that the human body only excepts 1% of the total Vitamin B12 your body receives. The formula of the Lupinen Tablets is therefore  100x higher compared to the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA).

Can you tell me more about one of the main ingredients, Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamine. It is a real “energy vitamin” and  is generally known as the longevity vitamin, possibly because it helps the energy level and activity of the nervous system of elderly.

The importance of Vitamin B12 for the human body is like motor oil for gasoline engines. If the gasoline engine runs out of oil is slowly but surely in the destruction .

With a normal eating pattern you are getting enough Vitamin B12 . However, the absorption of Vitamin B12 is often not optimal . This can have several reasons , gastrointestinal ailments , various medications , errors in metabolism and alcohol are the most important ones .

Vitamin B12 is essential for the body, it has an important role in functioning of the nervous system, the immune system, the oxygen transport, cognitive brain functions , the production of red blood cells and the formation of DNA , an energy – yielding metabolism , reduces fatigue and exhaustion .

Vitamin B12 deficiency becomes increasingly common with advancing age.

Our primary food sources of vitamin B12 include meat, most fish, especially the oily ones (trout, herring, and mackerel), crabs and oysters, eggs (the yolk), and milk products, especially yogurt. Organ meats such as liver, heart, and kidney are particularly high.

B12 is also manufactured by bacteria in the human intestines, but it is not known how much we can naturally absorb and utilize from that source. In general, digestion and absorption must be good for adequate B12 to be obtained. Many laxatives and overuse of antacids can reduce absorption and deplete stores of B12.

Vitamin B12’s primary functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. B12 is necessary for the rapid synthesis of DNA during cell division.

Most problems of B12 deficiency affect the blood, energy level, state of mind, and nervous system. Often, subtle symptoms may start with the nervous system. Vitamin B12 nourishes the myelin sheathes over the nerves, which help maintain the normal electrical conductivity through the nerves. Soreness or weakness of the arms or legs, decreased sensory perceptions, difficulty in walking or speaking, neuritis, a diminished reflex response, or limb jerking may result from B12 deficiency. Psychological symptoms may include mood changes with mental slowness may be one of the first symptoms.

Vitamin B12 works with folic acid to control homocysteine levels. An excess of homocysteine, which is an amino acid (protein building block), may increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and perhaps osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease.

Supplementing B12 energizes, is good in chronic fatigue, is good to recover from operations.

Vitamin B12 is essential but required only in minute amounts; 3-4 mcg. is needed in most adults to prevent deficiency, and at least that amount is required by pregnant or lactating women, as well as infants and growing children. From 10-20 mcg. daily is a good insurance level. Vitamin B12 is often taken in higher doses, 500-1000 mcgs. per day, to relieve fatigue.

There have been no known toxic effects from megadoses of vitamin B12. Thousands of times more than the RDA have been injected both intravenously and intramuscularly without any ill consequences. On the contrary, there is often even benefit.
