Supplementation Really?

  1. 1. THE CASE FOR MULTIVITAMINSUPPLEMENTATIONMarket America2013A Healthier U | www.ahealthieru.us
  2. 2. These statements have not beenevaluated by the Food and DrugAdministration.This product(s) is not intended todiagnose, treat, cure or prevent anydisease.
  3. 3. “NUTRITION IS THE FOUNDATION FOR HEALTH ANDDEVELOPMENT. BETTER NUTRITION MEANS STRONGERIMMUNE SYSTEMS, LESS ILLNESS AND BETTER HEALTH.HEALTHY CHILDREN LEARN BETTER. HEALTHY PEOPLE ARESTRONGER, MORE PRODUCTIVE, AND MORE ABLE TO CREATEOPPORTUNITIES TO GRADUALLY BREAK THE CYCLES OFBOTH POVERTY AND HUNGER IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY.BETTER NUTRITION IS A PRIME ENTRY POINT TO ENDINGPOVERTY AND A MILESTONE TO ACHIEVING BETTER QUALITYOF LIFE.”World Health Organization

  5. 5. VITAMINS & MINERALS:WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?Essential vitamins and minerals are commonly foundin fruits and vegetables.Vitamin / Mineral Food SourcesVitamin A Carrots, pumpkinVitamin B2 Mushrooms, spinachVitamin E Avocados, peppersChromium Broccoli, green beansMagnesium Spinach, beansPotassium Bananas, potatoes
  6. 6. VITAMINS & MINERALS:DECLINING QUALITY OF FOODSThe average vegetable found in today’s supermarketis anywhere from 5-40% lower in minerals, proteinsand vitamins compared to those harvested just 50years ago.Source: Declining Fruit and Vegetable Nutrient Composition: What Is the Evidence?by Donald R. Davis, Ph.D., Journal of HortScience; February 2009.http://bit.ly/I7NzI8
  7. 7. VITAMINS & MINERALS:DECLINING QUALITY OF FOODS• New farming methods(pesticides, etc.)• Environmental factors(soil depletion)• Genetic dilution (hybridbreeds)• 40+ vegetables tested• Proteins: 6% decrease• Vitamins: up to 38%decrease• Minerals: up to 80%decreaseCause Effect
  8. 8. “Vegetables and fruits are among the richest sourcesof many nutrients.Past and ongoing efforts to increaseyields, combined with apparent broad tradeoffsbetween yield and the concentrations of perhaps halfof all essential nutrients, work against recent effortsto increase one or a few micronutrients in individualfoods.”Donald R. Davis, Ph.D.
  9. 9. IS BIGGER BETTER?• Today’s vegetables are notably larger than thosecultivated decades agoo Contain more “dry matter”o Less nutrientso Dilutes mineral concentrations per pound• Vegetables today are being bred for cosmeticappearance, size and quantity, not nutrient composition
  10. 10. GENETIC DILUTIONWhat it is: Selective breeding to increase cropyield, which has been shown to reduceprotein, amino acid and mineral composition incropsThe Broccoli Study: 27 broccoli hybrids were testedfor calcium and magnesium concentrations in1996-97“[The study] reported correlation between mineral concentration andhead weight … [that] were all negative and statistically significantfor both years.”

  12. 12. INDUSTRIALIZATION OF AGRICULTURERise of fertilizers and pesticides lead to afaster harvesto Less time to absorb nutrients from synthesis and soilo Potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus (ingredients infertilizers) interfere with absorbing nutrientso Leads to soil-mineral depletion
  13. 13. POST-PRODUCTION HANDLINGFarmers pick produce under-ripe to withstand:o Post productiono Shippingo Shelf-life at grocery stores, warehouse stores,etc.In addition, plants naturally produce ethylene, ahormone that causes plants to soften and ripen.Farmers use products to block ethylene with the hopeof increasing shelf-life
  14. 14. A SOLUTION: SUPPLEMENTATION• Supplementation provides essential vitaminsand minerals needed every day• Certain phytonutrients are impractical to obtainfrom food• Provides noticeable health improvements(increased energy, increase joint comfort, skinhealth, improved sleep, etc.)
  15. 15. A SOLUTION: SUPPLEMENTATIONMultivitamin supplements can prevent deficiencies ofvitamins and minerals.Many multivitamin supplements contain 100% ormore of the Recommended Dietary Allowance ofvitamins.
  16. 16. A GOOD MULTIVITAMIN PROVIDES:• Potency: The label amounts are actually IN thebottle.• Purity: High quality ingredients and free ofcontaminants, and extraneous binders and fillers.• Rapid Absorption: The rate nutrients are absorbedby the body and can begin working• Adequate levels of vitamins/mineralsImportant to support optimal health
  17. 17. BENEFITS OF MULTIVITAMINS• Improve physical and mental conditiono General body functionso Overall well beingo Help reduce stress• Help supplement deficiencies from diet, lifestyleo Human body needs 13 essential vitaminso Deficiency results in illness and health complications• Studies show overall health is improved when taking a multivitamin.• JAMA 2002 advised medical doctors to recommend daily multivitaminsupplements to all patients.
  18. 18. FILLERS FOUND IN VITAMINSSome supplement manufacturers often add in fillers to theirsupplements for reasons that include:o Easier and faster productiono More appealing to the eyeo Easier to swallowBut fillers can impact your body and health, as they can havesimilar effects as some additives in processed foods.Also, these fillers can block the absorption of nutrients.
  19. 19. ABSORPTION MATTERS!

  21. 21. ISOTONIX® OVERVIEW
  22. 22. What does Isotonic mean?When the concentration of the fluid consumed is the sameas that of the body’s fluids, then the fluid is described asbeing “isotonic.” At this concentration, nutrients andmolecules essential for proper cell metabolism are mostefficiently transported through cell walls.Why is Isotonic Delivery Important?• Speeds delivery of nutrients to bloodstream• Prevents influx of water into intestinal tract• Prevents discomfort and diarrhea
  23. 23. ADVANTAGE OF ISOTONIC DELIVERY• Most pills and capsules require stomach to digest thepill, mix with enzymes, hydrochloric acid, and proteinsto achieve uniform solution.• This process can take anywhere from 40 minutes tofour hours.• During this time, vitamin actives are lost, and importantmicronutrients are trapped by the body, or inactivatedby highly acidic pH level of the stomach.
  24. 24. ADVANTAGE OF ISOTONIC DELIVERY• Isotonix products are scientifically formulated to ensurean isotonic state the moment they enter your body.• When properly mixed with water and taken on an emptystomach, the isotonic solution flows into your smallintestine almost immediately.• This means Isotonix products are absorbed by thebody in as little as five minutes.
  25. 25. WHY ISOTONIX®?• Ingredients deliver the same concentration ofparticles as found in bodily fluids to improveabsorption• Little nutritive value is lost, making absorptionhighly efficient while delivering maximum results• Fast, but controlled to allow the body to efficientlyshuttle vitamins into the blood stream
  26. 26. ADVANTAGES OF ISOTONIX®• Completely free of binders and fillers commonin traditional tablet and capsule products• Clear the stomach at an optimal rate tomaximize absorption• Buffered to protect nutrients from hydrochloricacid degradation in the stomach
  27. 27. ADVANTAGES OF ISOTONIX®• Gentle on your system because theysimulate body fluid• Offer an alternative to pills (40% of Americanadults have showed difficulty swallowingpills*)*The survey of 679 adults (513 ages 18-64, 166 age 65 and older)was funded by the US affiliate of Germanys Schwarz Pharma
  28. 28. ISOTONIX® MULTIVITAMIN• 100% of vitamins needed for proper nutritionalbalance• Vitamins serve as cofactors and coenzymes forproper functioning of enzymes/metabolicreactions (required components)• Minerals are key cofactors for metabolicprocesses (required components)
