We achieve this through our focus on five guiding principles. Designing practitioner only nutritional products which demonstrate our commitment to clinical research, natural health science and innovative product development.
From cutting-edge delivery technologies and diagnostic tools, to next generation sourcing and production techniques, we are creating products with quality, purity and potency in mind.
Until now, the ability to be able to analyse what is in an individual’s GI microbial environment has been limited to the use of tests which rely on cultures being performed on stool analysis in laboratory environments. Designs for Health have now partnered with Diagnostics Solutions Laboratory, to provide the first ever third party validated, DNA/PCR test performed on stools. Unlike the traditional culture methods which results in only 50% of the GI Microbial data being analysed, the DNA/PCR assay can detect many more organisms due to its ability to identify genetics of the microbes, even if they are no longer alive in the stool sample.
Liposomal technology is a proprietary process developed for optimal absorption and bioavailability. Liposomes are spheres made of phospholipids—the same primary building blocks of cell membranes. Liposomes bond easily with cell membranes to deliver their nutrient cargo. Liposomes are extremely tiny particles, which allows for fast absorption, starting in the mouth and are delivered through microscopic, more stable, single-layer spheres, made from the highest quality ingredients available.
Evail technology is our proprietary formulation method, used in the manufacturing process to improve the absorption and delivery of fat soluable nutritents. This process uses a proprietary blend of MCT oils, non-soy derived lecithin, and vitamin E, without the use of potentially harmful surfactants. All of Design for Health fat-soluable nutrients are encapsulated in soft gel, using our Evail™ technology, enhancing the absorption ability by the body within the GI tract.
All of our Designs for Health omega 3 products use a patented source of highly concentrated fish oil sourced using the highest standards of freshness and purity. We use sustainable wild Alaskan Pollock fish oil extracted immediately upon catch. In fact, when it comes to freshness and purity we have gone beyond the limits set by the omega 3 industry. Our omega 3 ingredients deliver five times lower levels than the permitted maximum oxidation and organic contaminent levels allowed by the GOED, a standard used by the omega-3 industry.
With a bioavailable blend of three different forms of magnesium, Designs for Health Magnesium formulations include Magnesium as Glycerophosphate, Orotate and Amino Acid Chelate forms.
Magnesium glycerophosphate has shown to provide superior absorption over other forms of magnesium, with a high tolerance.
Magnesium Orotate is specific for heart health, and is the magnesium of choice for cardiologists.
Quatrefolic™, is a patented form of B9 Folate which has been clinically proven to be the most bioavailable form compared with all other forms of folate. Quatrefolic™ has been proven to successfully pass through the GI tract, ensuring higher folate uptake. B9 Folate is essential as it works together with B12 to convert into an essential amino acid, known as methionine.
