What you put into you does make a difference. When we do not eat the right foods, like fruits and vegetables, we become deficient in vitamins and minerals. Our bodies react negatively when we put substances into the body that disrupt normal health function. Health problems are often the result of harmful chemicals, preservatives and unnatural foods. Found in many ‘supermarket’ foods, partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats) and nitrites are just two such major offenders. While the job of these substances is to expand a food’s shelf life, their effects on the body are dangerous.

Only whole foods (not synthetic vitamins) provide the basic building blocks to repair tissues of the body. Dr. Barrantes only uses whole foods and whole food concentrates to help you repair and sustain your organs, glands and tissues. Don’t accept synthetic substitutes for nature.
