Taking your vitamins

  1. 1. Taking Your Vitamins The human body needs vitamins and minerals for growth and good health, and gets them from the food we eat. Vitamins boost the immune system, and also help cells and other organs to function properly. Vitamins are organic substances, and minerals are inorganic substances. Minerals, like calcium, are required by the body in large amounts to grow and stay healthy. There are other minerals like copper, zinc, iodine, and iron that are required in very small amounts and are called trace minerals. Two types of vitamins are fat soluble and water soluble vitamins.  Fat soluble – Vitamins A, D, E, and K dissolve in fat and are stored in body.  Water Soluble – Vitamins C and B complex dissolve in water before the body absorbs them. Eating healthy food is the best way to acquire all the necessary vitamins and minerals. Fresh fruits and vegetables, a plant based diet, a small amount of fish, and organic grass-fed protein or free-range poultry are the best foods to provide nutrients to your body. Fish and poultry, if included, can be a source of minerals like zinc. Dried beans, nuts, leafy green vegetables, and seeds are also good sources of zinc. Animal proteins are not necessary to be a healthy person. If you have a healthy and well balanced diet, you probably get all the vitamins and minerals your body needs from what you are eating. You don’t need to depend on the vitamin and mineral supplements. Nothing can match the vitamin and mineral properties and digestion of natural food.
  2. 2. Women of child bearing age, pregnant women, children with improper diets, older people, people with eating disorders, and people on special diets could need nutritional supplements. These supplements may have various reactions when taken with other medications and over the counter drugs because they can cause dangerous interactions, or can be life threatening. Synthetic vitamin supplements are chemical compounds that are manufactured in laboratories and are not advisable. Your body is designed so that it can only absorb vitamins from food and not the ones artificially generated in labs. 100% raw whole food vitamins are the best option because they are made of organic ingredients. I am aware of only two companies that make 100% raw and organically grown supplements: Innate formulas, and a blue green algae by Vision, which is raw. Both are produced with the refraction window drying process, which is by far the best of the supplements on the market today. I am not saying that other companies are not meeting high standards, but all the companies that we are working with meet the highest standards. ____________________________________________________________ ___________ Dr. Fred Bisci is an organic and raw food nutritionist with over 40 years of experience helping people improve longevity and reduce the risk of diet related illnesses.
