No matter how strong a building might look, it’s no stronger than its base foundation.
And this is also true with your health.
If you think about any building, you’re likely to agree that it’s only as strong as its foundation. Without a strong, solid foundation, the building can’t withstand the ravages of time, weather, stress, pressure and certainly not more traumatic events such as earthquakes, floods or high winds. Any of these events can cause the building to deteriorate, crumble or even collapse.
This same principle also applies to your overall wellness. Without a strong, solid foundation, your health is much more at risk to greater damage from any of the threats of today’s world, including things such as ... toxins and pollution ... daily mental stresses ... emotional upheavals ... bacterial & viral invaders ... injuries and trauma.
On top of all this, your body weakens with age, with a reduced ability to resist and recover from damage. It also begins losing its ability to absorb all of the nutrients it needs from the food you eat. And finally, even the foods you do eat are grown in depleted soils; they don’t contain the vital nutrients they once did that are so important to your body’s health.
With all of these factors working against it, your body has a constant exposure to free radicals and their damage. This damage can result acute and chronic illness, which in turn unleashes more free radicals, which creates another round of damage and can start a vicious, downward cycle of injury, infirmity and impairment of your health.
How to build and maintain a strong foundation for your health
We have created a very special Healthy Foundation Pack of four premier supplements to give your body the wide scope of vital nutrients it needs to help stay in the best of health. Each product is scientifically formulated, physician approved, pharmaceutical grade and certified by independent Third Party Testing. Together, our Healthy Foundation Pack can be looked at as the 4 pillars of wellness.
Pillar 1: Daily Multi-Vitamin – VitaDaily AM/PM™ or Wellavoh™
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, everyone should take a multiple vitamin/mineral supplement each day to avoid becoming nutrient deficient, which can lead to lowered vitality and health. A daily multiple vitamin/mineral supplement is needed because most of us don’t eat a perfectly balanced diet, plus many of the foods we eat are grown in depleted soils so they lack many of the nutrients than we might expect.
But for the best results, your daily multi-vitamin supplement has to be a robust, nutrient-rich, food-based formulation – like our VitaDaily AM/PM and Wellavoh. Both of these unmatched supplements feature ... daytime and nighttime support ... whole foods ... 6-7 classes of nutrients ... and more.

Pillar 2: Vitamin B-12 – Sublingual B-12 in Original, Super or HCY Guard®
The B-12 vitamin is essential for our well being as it nourishes and repairs both our nerves and our brain. But it’s also the most common vitamin deficiency in people over age 50 – which can lead to everything from fatigue, grumpiness, and low moods to mental confusion and mental exhaustion.
For best results, you need B-12 in a form that is most absorbable and usable by your body – like the kind you’ll find with each of our three Sublingual B-12 formulations (Original, Super and HCY Guard). All three of our B-12 supplements use Dr. Libby’s original, patented sublingual process – and are the only ones in the market with this benefit.

Pillar 3: Vitamin C – Vital C with Dr. Libby’s special formulation
Vitamin C is a broad spectrum nutrient that is known for its ability to nourish and support practically every system and process in your body, including your ... bones ... blood ... thyroid gland ... cardiovascular system ... immune system ... detoxification ... damage recovery ... anti-aging ... inflammation ... nerves ... collagen ... energy ... antioxidant protection. All this is why Vitamin C is not just for colds, but something you should take every day.
Vitamin C is so vital, yet it happens to be the second most common vitamin deficiency among people over age 50. This is due in part to the fact that human bodies cannot make their own Vitamin C (as many other mammals can); instead, it has to come from an outside source. Plus, the human body cannot store much Vitamin C either; so its supply in the bloodstream constantly needs to be replenished.
In addition, anyone over age 40 should consider taking Vitamin C at bedtime as it’s been discovered that it helps protect the heart in those early morning hours when heart attacks are most common. Specifically, the risk of heart attack is 40% higher in the early morning hours compared to any other time of day.1
But to get the most benefit from your Vitamin C, you need the best kind. That’s what our Vital C offers you, in the form of these benefits:
- Dr. Libby’s original formulation for superior absorption – the sodium-L-ascorbate form of Vitamin C along with a six-sided crystalline structure
- Scientifically formulated, physician approved and pharmaceutical grade
- Non-acidic and neutral to be gentle on the stomach

Pillar 4: Omega-3 and -6 Essential Fatty Acids – in OmegaPrime®
Our bodies have a daily need for Omega-3s and -6s. These omegas (also called Essential Fatty Acids or EFAs), play an extensive role in helping us to sustain vibrant good health. For instance, omegas nourish your body's heart, brain, skin, glands and joints - plus they are critical to the hormone production process.
But there is a problem -- our bodies cannot make the omegas internally. So these critical fats must come from outside sources. And, as with all supplements, if your health greatly depends upon it, you need to take the best. This is what you are getting with our ultra unique OmegaPrime – its "4 source formula" sets it apart from all the rest. It’s your prime choice for omega-3s and -6s because:
- It contains an exclusive "4 source blend" of the most highly regarded omega oils - from:
- Evening Primrose
- Perilla Seed
- Its Fish Oil undergoes a 10 stage distilling process to be contaminant-free
- It promotes healthy development and anti-aging by helping to protect against cognitive, mood and hormonal problems
- It's scientifically formulated, physician approved and pharmaceutical grade

And last, but not least: what are “Healthy Foundation” products anyway?
The dictionary definition for foundation is a perfect starting point for explaining the purpose of our special Healthy Foundation Pack:
foun•da•tion (foun-d³“sh…n) n. 1. The underlying base upon which a thing stands or is supported.
Further explanation of our Foundational Products would be:
- These particular products are an inter-connected combination of essential nutrients, vitally needed by your body on a daily basis, to support its countless systems, processes and functions.
- And when your body’s health is challenged, these foundational nutrients play an all-important role in helping your body heal itself. They crucially support your body's own natural impetus to sustain and re-balance itself.
- These products are the “base” upon which you can build and maintain a greater level of health and wellness, not only for today but for the later years of life, too.
The Healthy Foundation Pack – it’s your way to keep your body’s health strong, at the most important level: its foundation. Order your pack today and enjoy added bundled savings.
