In 1997, Dr. Seidman founded and became the CEO of Body Language Vitamin Co., whose emphasis is to promote health and enhance the lives of everyone through responsible vitamin, mineral, herbal, phytonutrient and enzyme supplementation as well as dietary modifications, exercise and stress reduction.
Body Language Vitamin Co. offers several supplements and has the ability to design supplements specifically for individuals. The primary products are:
- Anti-Age/Energy Formula for which Dr. Seidman was awarded a US Patent. This formula has been shown to repair the DNA deletion that occurs in our cells as we age. It also enhances energy production, memory, cognition and improves the function of the mitochondria which is a structure inside the cell that provides energy for the cell.
- Antioxidant Formula which scavenges free oxygen radicals, also known as reactive oxygen metabolites (ROM). These metabolites are created in our bodies during the process of energy production and also by pollutants, poor diet and exercise, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Free oxygen radicals are responsible for over 100 diseases including cancer, heart attacks, stroke and arthritis. They also accelerate the aging process.
- Multivitamin/Mineral Formula. This is a balanced formula containing all primary vitamins, pine bark and green tea extracts and chelated minerals. Our body's ability to absorb minerals decreases as we age and by the time we're 40 years old we can only absorb 2-4% of them. By chelating them with an amino acid, the absorption rate increases to 35-40%.
