Low-Energy Versus High-Energy Molecules
The more energy that molecules have, the more they vibrate, move around and affect the particles around them. The less energy that they have, the more sluggish they become. They don’t move around as much, and they interact with their environment less. Don’t you find it interesting that low-energy and high-energy molecules behave similarly to low-energy and high-energy people?
How Do We Store Energy
Chemical energy is energy stored in the chemical bonds between atoms and molecules. It is by breaking these chemical bonds that we obtain the energy of life. Adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) is the molecule that our bodies' use to store and access chemical energy, by breaking it down into adenosine 5′-diphosphate (ADP). This simple conversion of ATP to ADP releases enough energy to let us do all of the things that we do. In fact, all of the food that you eat and air that you breath serve only two purposes: the acquisition of essential nutrients, and to fuel the conversion of ADP back into ATP.
Low-Energy Versus High-Energy People
The difference between low energy and high energy people is in how efficiently they’re converting ADP into ATP. When we are less active, our metabolisms slow, causing us to store more calories as fat and reducing our body’s efficiency in converting ADP back into ATP. This inefficiency, gives us less useable energy, making us less active and setting us upon a vicious downward spiral. High-energy people perform this ATP cycle more efficiently, giving them more available energy at any given moment. They’re the ones that always seem to be three coffees deep, are always on the move and are affecting the world around them.
Become a High-Energy Person
Over two out of every three adults is overweight. That means more than 66% of us have too much fuel, and not enough fire. So how do we ignite those fuel stores, jumpstart our metabolisms and become the high-energy people we want to be? Let us introduce you to D-ribose. A sugar (like sucrose, fructose, and lactose) D-ribose is a precursor for ATP, but D-ribose does it without the downsides of lactic acid production or the toll common sugars take on our bodies. D-ribose works with magnesium and L-carnitine to convert ADP to ATP rapidly and efficiently. Just like in high-energy people.
Why Not Take a Pure ATP Supplement?
Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as taking an “ATP supplement.” ATP is not stable enough to last in supplement form, and anybody who tells you otherwise is either misinformed or worse. After all, it is ATP’s instability that makes it such an excellent energy source! ADP has more entropy (disorder) than ATP, and if you learn one thing about thermodynamics, it should be that everything is trying to move to a state of more entropy. It's for this reason that our bodies can't store ATP long-term, and it is also why we cannot supplement with ATP directly.
We Are Battery Operated
It may be biochemistry that fuels our bodies’ processes, but electrical energy keeps us running. Our nervous systems are complex networks of wires, designed to carry electrical currents throughout our bodies. Our muscles move when synapses fire; our hearts beat when the SA node, AV node, and His-Purkinje system send electrical signals; even memories are created by complex electrical and biochemical networks within our brains. Yes, humans are battery operated, and sometimes that battery needs a boost.
Pure Molecular Nutrition
We know that the ATP cycle provides us with chemical energy, but how do we efficiently stimulate and regulate our bodies’ electrical energy stores? Through Pure Molecular Nutrition.
Electrons are matter, and, therefore, have energy. This energy is gained or lost through electromagnetism. When electrons are low on energy, they’ll cling close to atoms and molecules. When provided with more, they become excited and leap to higher energy levels within a molecule, or freely flow across molecules as seen in lightbulbs, thunderstorms, our nerves, hearts, and minds. These high energy electrons move about more readily and interact with the world around them. Doesn’t that sound familiar?
Pure Molecular Nutrition is about charging your body’s battery with our specialized technology. This proven technology is imbued directly into our ATP Spray and works alongside the chemical energy to provide an additional boost with results that you can see, feel and even measure.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin long known to help regulate mineral levels such as calcium and phosphorous. It is critical for promoting calcium absorption and thereby ensuring healthy bones, and without sufficient amounts, bones can become thin and brittle. Like calcium, vitamin D is of particular importance for young adults, especially females, whose musculoskeletal systems are still developing. Because our ability to absorb calcium tends to decline as we age, older adults also benefit greatly from vitamin D.
Vitamin D has also become the focus of intense research interest, and it is proving to have a far greater role in our health and well-being than we previously thought. It aids in the maintenance of the heart and blood vessels, lung, musculoskeletal system, teeth and gums. Aside from preventing rickets (vitamin D deficiency), it boosts the immune system, assisting in your bodies ability to avoid autoimmune diseases and other health conditions. Many people even take vitamin D for skin care.
Humans obtain vitamin D as a result of processes initiated when sunlight hits our skin, hence the name “sunshine vitamin”. Despite this, vitamin D is still classified as an “essential vitamin” because our bodies cannot generate enough for good health; we must receive a portion from our diets or supplementation. We don’t create enough under normal conditions, then add to that all we know about avoiding too much sun. The sun can be so intense that it leads to sunburns and the potential for skin cancer. We are urged to stay out of the sun, but at the same time we need the sun to make vitamin D!
What are we to do? The best solution is clear; Vitamin D Spray- brought to you by VitaMist!

The impact of B12
B12 is known for converting fat, carbohydrates and proteins to energy and for working with folate in many body processes, including the synthesis of DNA, red blood cells, and the insulation sheath that surrounds nerve cells. It is necessary for regeneration of nucleic acid and bone marrow, and with the other B vitamins, the conversion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins to energy.
Vitamin B12 supplements are highly recommended for vegetarians as this vitamin is found in significant quantities only in animal foods (e.g. lamb, beef & fish) and fortified foods such as cereals.
The introduction of B12
Vitamin B12 has many beneficial effects; for example, it is involved in the synthesis of DNA (the genetic material that makes us who and what we are), it helps to make red blood cells, and it is important in the formation of the myelin sheath that surrounds and insulates nerve cells. The myelin sheath helps to transmit signals along the nerve cells.
Vitamin B12 is found primarily in meat (especially organ meats such as liver) If you are a vegetarian, it is essential that you take a vitamin B12 supplement because the usual dietary source of vitamin B12 are organ meats like liver and dairy products and fortified foods such as cereal.
Dealing with B12 Deficiency
Using VitaMist spray vitamin, spray and swallow B12 500 product is, without doubt, the best way to take your B12 supplement. We urge you, especially as you get older, or if you are a vegetarian, to make sure you take sufficient vitamin B12 each and every day.
Others at particular risk of Vitamin B12 deficiency include the elderly. The deficiency occurs because of an inability to absorb the vitamin from regular dietary intake. The following excerpt from a Medical Journal indicated just how serious B12 deficiency can be: "Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common but under-recognized, yet easily treatable disorder in older adults. Although several causes exist, food cobalamin malabsorption is now believed to be the most common etiology. Causes of deficiency include failure to separate vitamin B12 from food protein, inadequate ingestion, absorption, utilization, and storage as well as drug-food interactions" (Dharmarajan TS, Adiga GU, Norkus EP. Vitamin B12 deficiency: Recognizing subtle symptoms in older adults. Geriatrics. 2003;58:30-38).
The B12 Solution
It turns out that this fine-mist spray formula you spray into your mouth and swallow may cause the essential nutrients to become easily used. Needless to say, when you use the VitaMist Spray B12 500 for energy 4 times a day with its spray and swallow method, you keep your levels of vitamin B12 at an optimum levels and you get one incredible product. A product that, in many peoples' opinion, is clearly superior to any B12 pill, tablet, capsule, gelcap, or liquid on the market today.
Put the power of convenient spray tube to work for you with VitaMist C+Zinc, and don’t go anywhere without your tube of C+Zinc
Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbate or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously (produced from within the organism), so it is an essential dietary component
Sources of Vitamin C
Fruits and vegetables are the best sources of vitamin C. Citrus fruits, tomatoes and tomato juice, and potatoes are major contributors of vitamin C to the American diet. Other good food sources include red and green peppers, kiwifruit, broccoli, strawberries, Brussels sprouts, and cantaloupe. Although vitamin C is not naturally present in grains, it is added to some fortified breakfast cereals. The vitamin C content of food may be reduced by prolonged storage and by cooking because ascorbic acid is water soluble, sensitive to light and is destroyed by heat. Steaming or microwaving may lessen cooking losses. Fortunately, many of the best food sources of vitamin C, such as fruits and vegetables, are usually consumed raw. Consuming five varied servings of fruits and vegetables a day can provide more than 200 mg of vitamin C.
Zinc (Zn) is a transition metal belonging to group 12 of the periodic table. As an "essential trace element" zinc has substantial biological importance for plants and animals. Although zinc is needed in only small amounts, it participates in more than 80 different enzyme systems in the human body. The retina in your eye, for instance, contains more zinc than any other organ! Zinc is an essential trace mineral that plays a key role in body processes, such as building DNA and RNA, producing energy, regulating the immune system, and cell metabolism. It is required for wound healing, tasting, and smelling.
Zinc deficiency is rare in the United States, but it can cause poor appetite and impaired immune function. In more severe cases, zinc deficiency causes hair loss, diarrhea, impotence, and eye and skin sores. Weight loss, delayed healing of wounds, taste abnormalities, and mental slowness can also occur. Children with low zinc levels may have slowed growth and delayed puberty.
Sources of Zinc
Zinc is present in a range of everyday foods.
Oysters, Toasted Wheat Germ, Veal Liver, Roast Beef, Crab, Pork loin, Baked beans, Lobster, Beef patty, Dark chocolate, Lamb, Peanuts, and Crab. An interesting fact is that Oysters have more zinc than any other food.
Our C+Zinc spray vitamin also contains the anti-oxidant Vitamin E, as well as the essential amino acids lysine and glycine, all in one convenient, easy to use spray!

Also known as vitamin B9, folic acid or folate, folacin is one of the B vitamins essential to the formation of red blood cells. Folacin is also necessary for the production of nucleic acids in the synthesis of DNA and RNA. Folate helps regulate the embryonic and fetal development of nerve cells. Therefore, it is vital for normal growth and development. Taken regularly, VitaMist Folacin can increase energy and enhance wellbeing.
A Healthy Start for Unborn Babies
Your baby's health not only depends on what you eat or don't eat during your pregnancy, but it also depends on eating nutritious foods before you become pregnant.
If you're thinking about becoming pregnant, make sure you're getting enough folic acid in your diet. Folic acid is an essential nutrient that may help prevent common birth defects*. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about folic acid.
"What is folacin?"
It's a B vitamin that can help prevent neural tube defects in the fetus when taken before and during pregnancy.
"What are neural tube defects?"
Neural tube defects are common birth defects, which include:
Fact: In the U.S. alone, approximately 2,500 newborns each year have a neural tube defect. About half these cases are considered related to inadequate folic acid intake by the mother.
"Why should I take folacin before I become pregnant?"
Taking folic acid before you're pregnant is essential in reducing the risk of birth defects. It's important to absorb folic acid in your blood so that when you do become pregnant, your baby will have a healthy start. Since neural tube defects develop 18 to 30 days after conception - often before you even know you're pregnant - taking folic acid is important both before conception and throughout your pregnancy.
"How can I get folacin in my diet?"
You can get adequate levels of folic acid by eating the following foods:
In addition, women can get this essential vitamin by taking dietary supplements containing folic acid. See your doctor or healthcare provider for advice.
A natural sleep formulation.
Melatonin acts in conjunction with daylight cycles to create healthy patterns of sleep. When these patterns are disrupted, melatonin is often effective at resetting the body's biological clock.

VitaMist spray vitamins fit into any schedule and can be taken anywhere.
Efficiency – Emerging from a closed and sealed environment through a microliter spray, our products are sprayed directly into the mouth and swallowed. The result is a simple transformation of nutritive supplementation into nurturing energy.
Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates put together an animated video called How the Economic Machine Works in 30 Minutes. The video itself is on www.economic priciples.org. It is well worth taking a look at for a quick and concise lesson on economic trends, why they exist and how to know where in the cycle we are right now. Here are some key points to remember when predicting the economy.
Ray describes the economy as the sum of the transactions that make it up, and he points out that it only appears to be complex due to the sheer number of transactions that occur. Transactions consist of any combination of money and credit used to purchase goods, services or assets. As productivity increases with innovation and advancing technology, the economy grows at a steady rate. This is what’s referred to as productivity growth. While productivity growth is not something we as consumers feel on a day to day basis, it’s ultimately responsible for economies increasing at steady rates over extended periods of time. If we reflect back over the past few decades, it’s easy to see that several aspects of the economy seem to rise alongside productivity growth. Since we can produce more than we could 100 years ago, incomes are much higher now than they were then. With these higher incomes come higher prices and the devaluation of the dollar.
Our Product of the Month for August is ReLeaf, a popular botanical spray. But what are botanicals? For an informative look at these common supplements, we here at VitaMist deferred to the National Institutes of Health and their Office of Dietary Supplements.
A botanical is a plant or plant part valued for its medicinal or therapeutic properties, flavor, and/or scent. Herbs are a subset of botanicals. Products made from botanicals that are used to maintain or improve health may be called herbal products, botanical products, or phytomedicines.
In naming botanicals, botanists use a Latin name made up of the genus and species of the plant. Under this system, the botanical black cohosh is known as Actaea racemosa L., where "L" stands for Linneaus, who first described the type of plant specimen. In the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) fact sheets, we do not include such initials because they do not appear on most products used by consumers.
To be classified as a dietary supplement, a botanical must meet the definition given below. Many botanical preparations meet the definition.
