What You Should Know
There wasn’t an official Nature’s Code website that we could find, but it was sold on the QVC website. Nature’s Code has many different products related to the vitamin and supplement world. They also have juice drinks and nutrition bars. Nature’s Code was created by James Rouse, a naturopathic doctor, Ironman triathlete, QVC wellness doctor, certified yoga instructor, wellness magazine founder, speaker, author, radio talk show host, and TV personality. The list is impressive, but we aren’t told who manufactures or formulates the Nature’s Code products themselves.
Since there are several different lines of products to choose from in the Nature’s Code arsenal, for the purposes of this article we will only be reviewing one. We will look at the multi-vitamin supplements themselves. There are 4 different formulas. 2 for women under and over 50, and 2 for men under and over 50. We’ll include the ingredient list for the Women under 50 for sampling.
Vitamins A, C, D, and E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Folate, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Chromium, Red Raspberry Leaf, Coenzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Pomegranate, Cranberry, Green Tea, Licopene and Leutin.
Pills are items we tend to be familiar with and comfortable taking. However, this is another company that isn’t really forward about who they are, aside from the original idea guy, who seems to be the star of the show, not the researchers or developers who actually formulate and produce the product. There are no listed clinical studies to check out and there isn’t really any star ingredients in the list that blows our socks off for special inclusion. We do agree that supplements can be a helpful additive to the active lifestyle, but it’s not necessary to go with a company who’s got a pretty package when there are plenty of companies who really put the money into research and development over flashy packaging and a handsome doctor to sell it to you. It doesn’t mean he’s not genuine or sincere, but he needs to pay attention to who his core audience is. Most consumers of vitamins and supplements are looking for scientifically based information and they want to be able to find it easily.
