Our toxic burden varies day to day, as does our ability to defend ourselves. The present generation faces the largest burden from oxidative stress this planet has ever known.
Quality of Food has Decreased There is a gap in our protection, because our foods have become significantly depleted in their content of antioxidants and supporting minerals. Factors Mineral depletion in our soils Monoculture crops and agriculture Food transportation issues Foods that are highly processed Poor food choices and food preparation

Sleep Average American adult gets 6.5 hours of sleep each night. That is nearly 20% less sleep than the average in the 1950’s. Your body needs 7.5 - 9 hours for optimal function. Studies show that more than 50% of American adults lose sleep due to stress.
