  • Effects of poor foods choices
  • But most degenerative diseases are preventable. We must first understand that these diseases are NOT an inevitable result of old age. “Old” does not equal “Sick” – not necessarily. Almost all degenerative diseases result from cumulated damage to our cells. So, if we protect our cells from damage, we have the best chance to live a long healthy life.
  • Lastly, we need to add a good quality nutritional supplement as a life-long habit. We mentioned earlier that the body requires the basic building blocks that are provide by food. These include macro-nutrients like carbohydrates, protein and fat. It also includes micro nutrients like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Today, the higher nutrient requirements because of our lifestyle, and the simultaneous lower nutrient value in food makes supplementation prudent. While our standard of living has gone up, and fewer people are going hungry, we cannot ascertain the amount of nutrients in our food. Many people are overfed but undernourished. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), much of the illness, disability, and death associated with chronic disease is avoidable through known prevention measures. Furthermore, recent studies examining the potential economic benefits of vitamin supplementation have concluded that substantial cost reductions can be associated with the use of vitamin supplements, based on principles of preventative nutrition.
  • represent less than one-half of one percent of the total nutrients we consume every day, yet without them our bodies would be unable to efficiently use the carbohydrates, proteins, and fats in our diet. and this is part of what makes the Chelated Mineral and Mega Antioxidant products such an excellent combination.
  • Increased amounts of vitamins, increased amounts of various B- vitamins, the expanded bioflavanoid complex and mixed tocopherols, important carotenoids. 112 tablets – taken 2 pairs a day Synergistic effect: Lutein and Zeaxanthin - powerful antioxidant Green tea, bilberry and cinnamon- broad spectrum Quercetin- grp. Of polyphenolic subs. Known as flavanoids. It reduce blood pressure in hypertensive subjects. Selenium and vitamin E - prevention for prostate cancer N- acetyl L-cysteine- derivative of amino acid cysteine (building blocks of glutathione) Folic acid- helps in numerous bodily function. Regulates coenzyme for cellular metabolism and cell division. - sysnthesize DNA and repairs DNA and rapid cell division and growth. Inositol - Inositol promotes the production of lecithin, which aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. With the help of choline, it protects the heart by helping to prevent the hardening of arteries. Research has also shown that inositol may help to reduce folate-resistant neural tube defects. Choline - facilitates movements of fats into and out of cells. - precursor for Acetylcholine- important neurotransmitter in the brain. - works with folic acid, vit. B12 and methionine in methyl grp. Metabolism Olivol extract- polyhpenols antioxidants from olives. USANA patented the process how to extract the olive phenols. Gamma tocopherol - the principal form of vitamin E in the U.S. diet - is also an effective antioxidant that complements the activity of alpha tocopherol. The gamma form, however, is removed from circulation and excreted by the body relatively quickly. The antioxidant activity of vitamin E is wide-ranging. Because it is a fat-soluble vitamin, its protective effects involve the inhibition of lipid (fat) oxidation in the gut, blood stream, tissues, and cells. Specific activities include suppression of free radical formation, suppression of oxidative chain reactions, and repair of damaged cell constituents, particularly cell membranes. MINERALS: Molybdenum - oxidizing agent - important role in ETC of REDOX rxn. Silicon - required in the synthesis of collagen. Promotes the synthesis of proline and hydroxy proline, principal amino acid in the structure of collagen. Boron - influences the activity of many metabolic enzymes, certain hormones, and the metabolism of several micronutrient (calcium, magnesium and vit. D) - plays a role in osteoporosis prevention by reducing Ca excretion and increase deposition of Ca in the bone. VITAMINS: Every B vitamin is part of one or more coenzymes that make possible the body’s chemical work. For example, the niacin, thiamin, and riboflavin coenzymes are important in the energy pathways. The folate and vitamin B 12 coenzymes are necessary for making RNA and DNA and thus new cells. The vitamin B 6 coenzyme is necessary for processing amino acids and, therefore, protein. Many other relationships are also critical to metabolism. B12 - cyclic metabolism of folic acid. Amino acid meatabolism and sysnthesis of nucleic acid, red blood cells formation and myelin sythesis and maintenance. Clinical defieciency- pernicous anemia, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, poor balance, poor coordination, and loss of mental acuity. Vit. B6- serves as co-factor over 100 enzymes, amino acid metabolism, decarboxylation and synthesis of amino acid. Vit. B3- structural component of Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF), an organo-chromium complex that potentiates insulin by improving its binding to cell surface receptors. Biotin - an essential role in maintaining metabolic homeostasis by acting as a cofactor with enzymes involved in carboxylation reactions. Fatty acid metabolism and amino acid catabolism. Pharmaceutical Grade Vitamins are Bio-available First of all, we all know that, for a supplement to be effective, it has to be absorbed and used up by the body. Different supplements and brands vary greatly when it comes to bioavailability. Some supplements are absorbed easily, depending on the formulation and how it was produced by the dietary supplement manufacturer. On your supplement bottle label, you will see just how much each tablet or capsule your multi-vitamin contains. It is usually accurate, but the amount that is actually absorbed is an entirely different story altogether. Pharmaceutical Grade Means 99% Pure Second, dietary supplements undoubtedly have to be pure. It must not contain binders, fillers, dyes, excipients or other unknown substances. However, without being regulated by the DFA, can you really take their word for it? How can you be sure that your supplement does not contain anything that will turn out harmful? To remedy this pressing problem, there are guidelines which standardize the dietary supplement market. Institutions such as the USP provide a guarantee that we do not put ourselves in danger by taking supplements that should prolong life in the first place. A supplement that follows the standard guidelines is given a pharmaceutical grade standing. This means that the product is 99% pure without additives or unnecessary substances which may cause unwanted side effects.
  • Read conclusions
  • Minimal amounts of essential nutrients established by governmental bodies to prevent deficiency Getting only RDA is like setting your income at the government established poverty level NOT designed as optimal levels of nutrient intake
  • Biochemistry structure of cells in the human body.
  • Biochemical equation
  • And in the long-run, chronic nutrient deficiencies mount up to increased risk for chronic degenerative diseases…diseases like heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetes, chronic lung disease, Parkinson's disease, and so forth.

  • It is not in the plate ! The World Health Organization (WHO) considers that more than 2 billion people worldwide suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies, primarily iodine, iron, vitamin A and zinc, with important health consequences.

Recent evidence has shown that suboptimal levels of vitamins, even well above those causing deficiency syndromes, are risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.” - Dr Robert H Fletcher MD. MSc “Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. Pending strong evidence of effectiveness from randomized trials, it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.” - Dr Robert H Fletcher MD. MSc
