A Supplement Revolution Just Like Nature®
Oligo truly changed the game of nutritional supplements. It was developed from the ground up to address the two critical flaws in mineral supplementation—absorption and excess free radical creation—to help ensure that the nutrition information on the label is the same amount that makes it into your body.
Oligo is like no other mineral form on the market. Its effectiveness has been proven repeatedly. And only Melaleuca has it!
Seeking solutions from nature
In fruits, vegetables and other whole foods, plants draw nutrients from the soil, binding them to proteins and fibers. In this form they are in an ideal condition for the human body to use and absorb them. The team of Melaleuca scientists set out to duplicate the process used by nature. They tested hundreds of mineral forms before landing on what would become known as Oligo. And the results were nothing short of astounding.
10 times more available for absorption*
Only Oligo binds minerals to organic compounds (amino acids and oligofructose) to mirror the way they are found in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods to maximize solubility.
Oligo gives you more of what your body needs most
While the FDA requires product labels to clearly indicate the amount of mineral in each supplement, as well as the form of the mineral, it doesn’t require proof of solubility or absorbability.
That means the amount that’s listed on the label can greatly differ from the amount available for your body to absorb and use. For example, to get the same amount of vitamin C or copper found in just one dose of the Vitality Pack®, you’d have to take massive amounts of the popular grocery store brands.
In fact, Oligo minerals are scientifically proven to be up to 10 times more available for absorption than the minerals in the leading brands.*
In 2010, Oligo achieved another milestone. For the first time ever, a complete multivitamin-mineral formula was tested for absorption using actual human intestinal cells.
The study showed that Oligo is not only the best in laboratory conditions, it’s also superior when it comes to the ultimate test—the human body. In fact, Oligo was proven to deliver up to 4 times greater absorption through actual intestinal cells compared to non-Oligo multivitamin-mineral forms.* When tested against the sulfate, gluconate, oxide, and fumarate forms of copper, iron, manganese, and zinc (the forms commonly used by almost all commercially marketed nutritional supplements) at intestinal conditions.
