If you miss any of these5 your bodys health is in jeopardy.1. Vitamins are essential to the creation of energy. They form the best health insurance policy foryour body and should be purchased in a multi vitamin format.B Complex vitamins are required for energy, healthy blood cells, nerve, brain and cardiovascularhealthAntioxidant Vitamins A, C, and E should be included to assist your immune systemNOTE: If you are getting your vitamins from supplements make sure they are formulated fromwhole food sources and contain enzymes, co-enzymes, antioxidants, precursors, activators, traceelements, and numerous other naturally occurring synergistic micronutrients which work togetherto balance and nourish your body, making it more resistant to aging and degeneration.2. Minerals are critical for energy and stamina as well a strong bones, hair, skin and nails. Makesure the mineral supplements you buy are easily recognized and absorbed by your body. The bestform to buy are amino acid chelated minerals
Chelation is the process of binding a mineral to another substance in order to ensure absorptionand make the mineral usable by your cells. This process enables a mineral to pass through the gutwall.Their are about 21 minerals which are used in nutritional supplements however only 11 of themdeserve your attention on a daily basis. They are:calcium,magnesium,iron,zinc,copper,selenium,chromium,manganese,molybdenum,vanadium andboronRemember if they are NOT chelated they are probably NOT usable by your body at the cellularlevel.3. Antioxidants help protect you from the serious health risks of free radical damage caused bypollution, toxins and stress.Reactive molecules known as "free radicals" are created by environmental toxins, stress, over-exercise and even normal metabolism. They bombard your body, weakening cell walls andallowing disease, degeneration, and aging to occur.As you are probably aware, antioxidants work to defuse these free radicals and as I indicatedabove some vitamins are very good at this but your body needs much more.For some very potent, cutting-edge, antioxidants look for:grape seed extract,pine bark extract,resveratrol from grape skin,organic olive extract,blueberry,quercetin,cranberry and raspberry,selenium andnatural sources of the antioxidant vitamins A and C.4. Friendly Flora strengthens your bodys immune system and supports your overall health.Billions of stabilized flora or friendly bacteria are needed to help suppress harmful bacteria andpromote optimal health.
Think of a lush green lawn. The blades of grass are so closely packed that they do not allow roomfor the weeds to gain a strong hold. As long as the lawn is well nourished and watered it remainsfree of encroaching weeds. This is what happens in your digestive track when you continue to feedit good bacteria as well as the food which it thrives on.Unfortunately...These friendly bacteria are destroyed by carbonated drinks, coffee, birth control pills, alcohol,laxatives, stress, aging and antibiotics. Replacing them is essential if you wish to maintain dailynutrition.5. Digestive Enzymes Supplements allow your body to receive maximum nutrition and energy fromyour food, as well as properly digested fats.Vital enzymes are necessary for proper digestion and nutrient utilization of the foods you eat. Thekey to maximizing your energy levels lies in proper food digestion. You need to get the mostnutrients out of each meal.Food normally contains the appropriate enzymes to digest it but unfortunately they are destroyedby cooking and processing methods as well as commercial growing practices.
