The supplement should be free from yeast, wheat, gluten, milk, corn, soy, artificial colorants and preservatives.

The Foundation Product we Use and Recommend is Total Balance

Total Balance makes full use of a genuinely synergistic formulation and a specialized enteric coating developed for pharmaceuticals to ensure correct delivery for proper absorption.

This means that the relatively high doses listed to the left are not required. High doses are used either for specific and professionally prescribed reasons or, more commonly, by manufacturers who provide large doses in the hope some will survive the stomach and be absorbed, or for purely competitive marketing advantage with uninformed consumers.
