Rohtos Labs is a Nordic nutrition solutions developer. Unlike many other companies providing nutritional products to consumers, we concept, develop and manufacture all our products by ourselves. We also personally select and source all the ingredients we utilize in our products after careful research and provider vetting.
Human Condition Support
Rohtos Labs provides a range of dietary supplement products designed to support people in dealing with their personal human condition.
The human condition is a philosophical phrase that refers to the generality of situations that human beings face. We at Rohtos Labs understand it to encompass the characteristics, key events and situations which compose the essentials of human existence – such as progress or growth, emotionality, health, aspiration, conflict, and mortality.
Micronutrition and the Human Condition
To maintain brain, muscle, bone, nerves, blood circulation, and immune system and so on, the body requires a steady supply of raw materials. Large amounts of macronutrients – proteins, fats, and carbohydrates – are needed. While only a small number of micronutrients – vitamins and minerals – are absolutely essential in small quantities, failing to get them guarantees suboptimal performance and health problems.
Science has proven that consumption of certain micronutrients found in proper diet can influence body and brain functions, even when the nutrients are not used to correct malnutrition. The same applies to metabolites of those micronutrients, ie. new compounds synthesized within the body from consumed compounds, and to phytonutrients, ie. plant-based nutrients which typically are not a part of regular diet and which are not considered essential micronutrients.
Among the benefits of phytonutrients are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Phytonutrients may also enhance immunity and intercellular communication, repair DNA damage from exposure to toxins, detoxify carcinogens, modulate the nervous system, alter hormonal metabolism and so on. In short, phytonutrients are vital for optimal human condition.
Rohtos Labs utilizes all types of micronutrients. Proteins, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals in varying biochemical forms. Diverse phytonutrients, both as “full-spectrum” extracts – containing all the constituents of the original plant, some of them in higher amounts than found in nature, and as isolated singular compounds extracted from plants.
Products with a Purpose
When a well-defined and contained purpose for a product to exist is combined with the innate abilities of select micronutrients, it becomes feasible to create products which provide significantly effective human condition support in a set of given circumstances – for example stress management during the daytime, at work, when external stressors cannot be avoided.
The efficacy of singular nutrients can often be improved when the nutrients are combined with other synergistic compounds into a formulation, or a blend of micronutrients. Combinations may be used to increase bioavailability – the amount of target nutrients absorbed into blood circulation, or to engineer a more comprehensive overall effect with ingredients targeting the same biochemical mechanisms in synergy through multiple pathways. Combinations are also convenient for their end users.
Rohtos Labs creates nutrient combinations to modify, compound and improve on effects and efficacy of single ingredients. Each ingredient has a purpose, and a ratio and relationship with each other and in relation to the metabolic function they seek to address.
In accordance with the tenets of our Nordic culture, we adhere to a strict standard of quality and trust. We’ve chosen the strategy to manufacture our products by ourselves so that we can control their quality. This way we can stand behind every single capsule – and also avoid using any kind of processing agents in our manufacturing process.
Use of quality of ingredients is at the heart of creating nutrition products that deliver on their promises as universally as possible. This means opting to use only high-quality, pure, pathogen-free and lab-tested ingredients, sourced directly from the manufacturer or from select brokers and committing time and resources to deep researching ingredients and their potential providers.
For us quality also means utilizing nutrients in their most bioactive and absorbable forms. The body’s physiology is complex and orally absorbed nutrients are often converted a number of times before they are in a form that is finally utilized. It may be beneficial to utilize the nutrient directly in its final form. Sometimes an originally less bioavailable form gets converted to a more absorbable compound by enzymes in our body, resulting in better bioavailability.
Utilizing the most active form of a vitamin or mineral can have a substantial benefit to health and can be the difference between no effect vs a profound shift. Likewise, there’s a world of difference between consuming uncultivated, dried plant in its native constitution and a high purity herbal extract which has been derived from a select plant strain, grown in controlled conditions, properly processed and which is tested to contain the specified bioactive compounds in standard amounts.
