Survival, growth and multiplication are the fundamental principles of life. During survival, a living organism processes a wide variety of nutrients from its milieu and breaks down these compounds by digestive process into basic chemical units, for utilization in a bio-compatible manner. For example, proteins from plant-based soy milk or an animal-based hamburger are bio-processed in a similar manner into amino acids, basic chemical units – the ‘SUPPLEMENTS.’
A living organism, however, synthesizes its own specific molecules for precise control of its growth and multiplication. Such exclusive biochemicals include nucleic acids (eg. DNA, RNA), regulators (eg. insulin, hormones), co-factors (eg. cytochromes, ubiquinones); modulators (eg. angiogenin, growth factors) and transporters (eg. hemoglobin, lactoferrin). During the life of an organism, these biochemicals are continuously utilized and depleted during a vital function and replenished by regular biosynthesis. Any deficiency, imbalance and dysfunction of these chemicals manifests into a physiological disorder, disease or death. Such bio-functional compounds are collectively - the ‘BIO-REPLENISHMENTS.'
