Since its introduction over 900,000 people have used Fountain of Life in over 110 countries with no reported incidences. Incredibly safe, there is NO toxicity level established. Fountain of Life has no side effects as it is not a medicine.
Fountain of Life is a functional food and NOT a drug as it replaces the lignans that have been processed out of our diets.
Lignans are our best source for dietary antioxidants. These plant nutrients neutralize the impact of free radicals on our body. The highest quality of lignans have been discovered in the FOL Norwegian spruce extract. Health professionals recommend an increase in foods containing lignans. A 30 year study showed 30% less cancer, and 30% less heart disease for those following a high lignan diet. Check out the benefits here.
Before Fountain of Life drops leaves the manufacturing facility, the extract
undergoes a 3-step protocol including testing:
- At the extraction facility, testing is performed to determine the lignan concentration. It is also tested for trace elements including heavy metals, as trees grow in a variety of soil conditions. Once approved, it is shipped to the manufacturing facility
- At the Health Canada approved facility, it undergoes a visual inspection and filtered to ensure that there are no natural particulates from the extraction
- Once bottled, as sample is tested at a third party facility to ensure that there are no microbes in the final product. Once passed, it is shipped out for distribution
Fountain of Life is not a drug or medication. Side effects are associated with medication and not food supplements. If you stop taking FOL, your body will most likely revert to its former state, as many have stated when they have not ordered FOL before their supply ran out. Chronic issues may return as free radicals will continue to bombard our system and create a chronic inflammatory state. However, there are no side effects related to Fountain of Life during or after taking it. Here are reviews from real people taking FOL.
Fountain of Life is a plant lignan (antioxidant). It is quickly converted in the plasma of our blood to enterolactone, a mammalian antioxidant. This conversion is important as this allows our body to utilize Fountain of Life to neutralize the overwhelming free radicals that can lead to chronic inflammation.
Fountain of Life is not a drug, so overdosing is not possible. However, testing was conducted to establish a toxicity level. The researchers could not find a toxicity level even using 2600 mg/kg body weight when testing the lignan 7-hydroxymatairesinol. Fountain of Life is very safe product.
Trimethylene glycol is the excipient used in Fountain of Life. This is a corn derivative solution for the lignans. It is alcohol and sugar-free. The trimethylene glycol in Fountain of Life is Kosher and Halal certified.
Chronic inflammation is the root cause for many health issues. This can cause an increase in serum LDL’s while lowering HDL’s. This leads to the buildup of plaque and eventually cardiovascular disease. It also is responsible for insulin resistance which increases the risk factors in the development of diabetes type 2. For others, chronic inflammation is a primary risk factor for cancer. Beyond the discomfort of chronic inflammation, this state is the gateway to many health issues. Reducing chronic inflammation reduces the risk factors.
If anyone is on medication or under treatment by a doctor, they should have a discussion with their doctor on using FOL. Certain therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy for cancer may be affected by antioxidants so an open dialogue will ensure that taking this functional food will not impact the therapy. We recommend trying a personal supply pack here.
Fountain of Life contains the lignans from the Norwegian Spruce tree. It metabolizes in the same manner as flax and sesame seed, as they convert to enterolactone in the body so that they may be utilized.
There is no toxicity, however, Fountain of Life should be ideally consumed within 3 months to ensure that the user receives its maximum benefits from the product.
Fountain of Life should be stored in a cool, dry place to preserve freshness. Do not use the product if the safety seal is broken.
It may be stored at room temperature, but preferably a cool, dry place. Storing Fountain of Life in the fridge will not extend its shelf life.
We do not recommend Fountain of Life for children under 12 years of age. It may be consumed by young adults. The dosage is dependent upon their body mass.
Anyone taking medication should seek the advice from their doctor to ensure that using a powerful antioxidant will not impact its efficiency.
Fountain of Life is not recommended for pregnant and/or breastfeeding women.
Yes it can. Fountain of Life can also protect and preserve your pets’ health. If your pets are spayed or neutered, lignans can help with their hormonal balance. As well, lignans have shown to improve the health of dogs suffering from Cushing’s Disease. Add 1 drop of FOL per 10 kg of the pet’s weight to their food on a daily basis. Try a single bottle for your pet here.
No trees have been harmed in the making of Fountain of Life. The pulp and paper industry only uses some parts of the Norwegian Spruce. They remove the dark stem knotwood during the preparation phase. This material is collected and shipped to our extraction facility, where the extract containing lignans is created.
These forests are all part of Finland’s sustainability program for several decades. As 60 percent of the forests in Finland are owned by ordinary Finnish people, it is managed as a family bioeconomy with future generations in mind.
