What is TCM?
The Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) is a system of wellness that dates back more than 2,000 years and is still practiced today. It works on the belief that Qi (which loosely translates to “vital energy” and is pronounced “chee”) is essential for overall health. TCM principles adhere to the idea that proper Qi is needed to keep all systems in balance.
This ties into the concept of yin and yang, defined as opposing but complementary energies. According to TCM, like Qi, yin and yang negatively affect your health when they’re out of balance. That being said, a primary goal of TCM involves balancing their equalizing relationship.
One of the ways to do that involves using specific superfoods and herbs. TCM superfoods and superherbs aim to support the overall health of the systems of the body. TCM aims to create balance in the body as a whole to promote wellness and Qi. When the yin and yang aspects of Qi are harmonized and balanced out, a person typically experiences wellbeing.
How is TCM different than Ayurveda?
Both TCM and Ayurveda approach the body in a balancing way. They both address energy flow, circulation and balance in the body. For instance, that energy is referred to as “Qi” in TCM and “prana” in Ayurveda. While there is overlap in some of the botanicals used in both TCM and Ayurveda, each tradition also utilizes specific plants and foods. Ayurveda was born out of India, so often recommends traditional herbs and foods widely available in that region. TCM often focuses on botanicals and fungi more readily available in China. While TCM may utilize more animal products, Ayurveda does tend to recommend more dairy, like ghee, compared to TCM. In essence, TCM and Ayurveda are different ways to approach wellness and balance from different regions of the world.
Could you elaborate on the benefits associated with vitamins D and K?
Vitamin D (as cholecalciferol) supports: • Cardiovascular health† • Bone health† • Healthy blood levels of vitamin D more effectively than vitamin D2† • Healthy immune system function†
Vitamin K (as menaquinone-7) supports: • Cardiovascular function† • Bone health†
Can I take this with other supplements?
Yes, you can take it with other supplements. However, vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, so it’s best to get your levels checked regularly to make sure you’re not getting too much.
How is Ancient Nutrients Vitamin D different from Fermented Vitamin D?
You’ll get the power of fermented vitamin D3 in the new Ancient Nutrients Vitamin D, but will also enjoy a host of botanicals, mushroom extracts and other superfood ingredients inspired by the Traditional Chinese Method (TCM). The old Vitamin D3 formula did not include this TCM focus. Just like the old formula, the updated formula contains 5,000 IU of fermented vitamin D3.
Is supplementation really necessary?
For many Americans the diet consumed isn’t nutritionally adequate. In fact, approximately two-thirds of the standard U.S. diet is made up of unhealthy fats and refined sugars with low or no nutrient density — providing calories but not the amounts of vitamins and minerals needed, including vitamins A, B Complex, C, D, E and the minerals calcium, magnesium and zinc.
More specifically, typical diets contain less than 80% of the RDA for calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and manganese—and the people who are most at risk for coming up short on those nutrients are adult women and teenage girls.
Here’s the truth: If two-thirds of the standard U.S. diets are coming up short on certain nutrients, then the remaining one-third of the average diet may not be so great, either, and cannot possibly fully meet a person’s nutrient needs. One great way to get more vitamins and minerals into your diet is to include nutrient-dense, real foods. Unlike our Standard American Diet, nutrient-dense foods can deliver a vitamin-packed and mineral-packed wallop. In addition to a nutrient-dense diet, some opt to take a multivitamin to help cover their bases.
Why is vitamin D so important?
Essential for proper absorption and metabolism of calcium, phosphorus, and other nutrients, vitamin D is amazing. Did you know that without enough vitamin D, calcium is often limited in its absorption?.
Most of us understand the power of vitamin D, but did you know that it plays a role in up to 2,000 genes and in every single tissue and cell of the body? However, it’s estimated that up to 75 percent of American teens and adults don’t get enough vitamin D in their diet..
Why do many people come up short on vitamin D? Here are a few reasons: Older people make less vitamin D than younger people do when exposed to sunlight, but some people avoid being out in the sun altogether — meaning they aren’t making vitamin D at a rate necessary for overall health..
Where you live in the continental United States can make a difference, too. For example, if you live north of an imaginary line that stretches from the northern border of California to Boston, then the ultraviolet energy is not enough for vitamin D synthesis for four to six months out of the year. Then there’s diet. The typical American diet doesn’t provide adequate amounts of vitamin D..
You may know, too, that vitamin D is actually a potent hormone and comes in two forms: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 — with D3 being the preferred form. That’s why there’s Ancient Nutrients Vitamin D in vitamin D3 form..
