The livethesource Mission
People Helping People
The livethesource Vision
The livethesource vision is two-fold – first to create unique, pure, high-quality, healthful lifestyle products using cutting edge scientific technology, and second, to offer an opportunity to fulfill dreams by affecting positive change and life-long healthy transformation, helping people to be better – physically, spiritually and financially.
The livethesource Story
livethesource is a company founded on the principle of “People Helping People.” It is more than a vision, more than a mission. It is a lifestyle, that permeates the entire livethesource culture, which includes the distributor field as well as at the customer and corporate levels. People joining together to boost their physical, spiritual and financial welfare by caring for others and thereby changing their own lives.
How can a company succeed in changing your life? The answer is an incredibly unique product that efficiently supports physical well being. It’s called Daily Source. It is an all natural nano encapsulated Multi-Vitamin, Mineral and Herbal Supplement. Daily source isn’t just a vitamin supplement. It’s a complete cocktail of health and well being. The specially selected vitamins, minerals and herbal compounds in daily source provide a substantial increase in nutritional value. First, due to their combination and second, due to nano-encapsulation. Our All Natural Patented Nanotechnology creates a particle size small enough to be absorbed with maximum efficiency.
At the heart of this story is Ted Farnsworth. Ted, a pioneer in the antioxidant beverage business, wanted to release a superior vitamin supplement formulated with the finest and purest ingredients on earth. Research showed that combining these proven ingredients with All Natural Patented Nanotechnology would improve performance, utilization and absorption of the vitamins, minerals and herbal compounds within the product. It is this exciting, state of the art technology that elevates livethesource above so many of the run of the mill vitamin and mineral supplements available.
Ted went on to consult with his friend and longtime business associate, Bob Ellis, about getting this special product to the masses. Bob is no stranger to success and innovation himself. In addition to helping develop the careers of music legends of Meatloaf and Chaka Kahn, Ellis remains a master of promotion and brand development.
Farnsworth and Ellis immediately decided to fast track the project and engage the vehicle of direct marketing to get our products directly into the hands of the consumers. Ellis, who has contacts in every imaginable industry, contacted his resident experts in direct sales: John Neubauer and Paul Peccianti.
Neubauer and Peccianti, both having long successful business backgrounds, a wall full of degrees between them and years of experience in the marketing of nutraceuticals through direct sales. Farnsworth and Ellis knew they were in good hands.
The four scheduled an initial meeting for one hour that lasted five hours. A surge of excitement pushed the proverbial wheels into motion. Everyone got it. They understood the importance of the product and the mission of “People Helping People”.
Now it’s your turn!
By combining cutting edge technology, the purest and proven ingredients and a familial approach to business, livethesource gives you the opportunity and ability to market unique, healthful, recession proof, lifestyle products and be part of a company that truly cares-a company that believes that by working together, we can change lives.
As we say: give us one year and we’ll change your life.
The livethesource Products
dailysource isn’t just a vitamin supplement. It’s a complete cocktail of health and well being. The specially selected vitamins, minerals and herbal compounds in dailysource provide a substantial increase in nutritional value, first, due to their combination, and second, due to nano-encapsulation. Our All Natural Patented Nanotechnology creates a particle size small enough to be absorbed with maximum efficiency.
The prefix ‘nano’ means one-billionth, so a nano-gram is one-billionth of a gram. Nanotechnology is the increasingly popular science of the incredibly small. It overlaps into medicine, food, robotics and virtually any other high-tech system now emerging from the scientific community.
As it applies to food and nutritional supplements, nanotechnology is now being utilized to reduce the particle size of various compounds to a relatively small size for efficient absorption. One of the best ways to create nano size particles is through encapsulation. The technology literally separates, and then envelops molecules in the active compound. There are a number of different encapsulation technologies, but the most favorable type is natural – and that’s why we’ve developed All Natural Patented Nanotechnology.
Vitamin D Booster
livethesource Vitamin D Booster is a unique nano-encapsulated Vitamin D3 supplement. Each dose provides 2000 IU of Vitamin D and in our nano-encapsulated form, the body’s ability to utilize the Vitamin D is unequaled. livethesource Vitamin D’s nano technology incorporates all natural ingredients to form unique nano-spheres that enhance absorption in several ways. The nano-spheres begin the process of Vitamin D absorption as soon as the Vitamin D liquid enters the mouth. The nano-spheres act as transport vehicles to ferry the Vitamin D through the rich supply of blood vessels under the tongue. Once the spheres enter the blood stream, the Vitamin D is slowly and consistently released to allow for maximum cellular absorption. The Vitamin D liquid that is swallowed has the added benefit of being protected from the harsh stomach environment by the nano-spheres. This allows the majority of the Vitamin D to enter the small intestine where the majority of gut digestion takes place.
Our nano-technology also enhances gut digestion of Vitamin D because the nano-spheres increase the surface area of the Vitamin D solution thereby allowing the nutrient to spread out over more surface area of the small intestine. In addition, the nature of the nano-spheres tends to keep the substance within the nano-sphere attached to the wall of the small intestine for a longer period of time. This literally allows the body more time for full absorption to occur through the wall of the small intestine into systemic circulation.
When you consider that Vitamin D is now recognized as a vital nutrient that affects health conditions throughout the body, the synergistic blend of greens and all of the naturally occurring nutrients, are a perfect compliment to enhance the health giving qualities of Vitamin D. Only livethesource Vitamin D Booster delivers Vitamin D in a proprietary nano-encapsulated sphere combined with the multitude of nutrients in the super greens to maximize the health benefits of this essential nutrient.
