The Orthomolecular medicine, according to 1954 and 1962 Nobel Prize winner  Linus Pauling, is intended to restore the “environment ” or ideal state of the human body, correcting imbalances or deficiencies based on the individual biochemistry, using natural substances in the body like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements and essential fatty acids.

Is called “Orthomolecular” (Orthos: right, straight, direct) the “fair”, “direct” amount, of the substance administered to each cell in the body to maintain or regain their well-being.

The Orthomolecular medicine conceives in a different way the welfare recovery of each person due to the fact that gives special importance, to the nutrition and the use of nutrients not only in a preventive way, but therapeutic and one of its fundamental bases is the cellular rehabilitation through the internal chemical restoration. Same as is performed due to the elements that daily consumed by humans, such as protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, probiotics, coenzymes but for rehabilitation purposes would be administered in mega doses.

The term “Orthomolecular” was used for the first time by Linus Pauling in an issue that he wrote in the “Science Journal” in 1968.

30 years ago the Chemical Teresa G. Villareal, introduced Orthomolecular medicine in Mexico and developed, based on the studies of the Chemistry Nobel Prize Linus Pauling, formulas and products that “Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine” offers today to thousands of Mexicans.

Investigations on Orthomolecular Nutrition have been dedicated to the study of the optimal welfare as its main objective.   In “Medicine and Orthomolecular Nutrition” we know that the definition of optimal welfare is not just the absence of disease, but a natural state of energy, vitality and, above all, harmony with ourselves and with life. This is why we work to provide an extensive catalog of products such as minerals, vitamins, amino acids, etc.. that will help you achieve this optimal state.
