Supplements

Nutritional health supplements are a very important when it comes to having a balanced and healthy diet and also weight loss. Supplement products are not a replacement for your daily meals. If you are eating fast food and processed foods all the time, then supplements will help you feel better and get the lack of vitamins and minerals your body needs. Although, supplements will not be able to counter all the damage you are doing by constantly eating junk food. High-quality supplements are great for you, but they are not some magical pill that will reverse diseases that junk foods and fast food will give you.

There is a long list of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to survive and stay healthy and if you are trying to lose weight. If you constantly neglect to supply your body the needed nutrition, you are putting yourself in dangers way. Your body will let you know that you are screwing up with little signs, and if you continue down that dark path, you body will eventually break. This is when you go running to your doctor, who is not a nutritionist or holistic herbalist, and he begins telling you to eat healthy and take your vitamins and of course put you on blood pressure pills and all kinds of statin drugs that further degrade your health.

I have seen prescriptions from doctors for Iron, Vitamin D, Calcium, etc. Really? You are going to fill a prescription for vitamins and minerals that is man made rather than simply eating some raw vegatables and fruits. This is the crazyness that the medical industry is selling to you. Taking drugs and pharmaceutical medications is not the answer. The answer to better health is consuming proper nutrition in the form of natural foods… in raw form or concentrated pills or dried powder form.

There are approcximately 90 Essential nutrients for good health which consist of…
60 minerals
16 vitamins
12 amino acids
2 fatty acids

MINERALS
Minerals are essential for a many bodily functions. They are important for building strong bones and teeth, blood, skin, hair, nerve function, muscle and for metabolic processes like those that turn the food you eat into energy… like carbs (vegetables). Minerals are the driving force for all of your organs to function properly. You can go from organ to organ and there are certain minerals that are linked to it. If you are not consuming the proper minerals for that organ, that particular organ will eventually break down. Minerals can found in nature through the soil, but you are not going to dig up some dirt and eat it. This is where plants come in. The minerals are absorbed into the plants, and we eat the plants and fruits and vegetables that grow from the plants and trees.This is why wild animals are healthy and strong. They are plant eaters and vegetarians. If you have a cat or dog and you notice them eating a plant in your house or gnawing on the window sill or something out of the ordinary, it is because they are not getting the proper nutrition from the food you are feeding them. This is why you don’t see wild animals drinking swimming pool water. They will wait for it to get dirty and filled with algae, and then you will see many animals flocking for a drink of that highly mineralized water. Animals know best, and we are supposed to be the smart ones. NOTE: One single mineral like selenium or calcium or magnesium is not going to do the trick to heal your body. It is balance of all the minerals working together that brings it all together.
AMINO ACIDS
Your body uses amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, to manufacture new tissues and repair old ones. It can produce most of those amino acids on its own, but there are a handful that it can’t. These are referred to as essential amino acids because they must be supplied by your diet. Without them your body’s ability to grow and to repair itself is impaired, so ideally you should consume them every day. Knowing which foods provide all or some of the essential amino acids helps you make sure you body gets adequate amounts.
VITAMINS
To understand why we need vitamins, it’s best to first understand what vitamins are. Vitamins are compounds which are necessary for our normal growth and function, which we cannot make within our bodies, and so we must obtain them from our foods.Most of the compounds needed for our body cells to function for our health, can be made by our cells from other nutrients. For some reason, we evolved without the ability to make the small number that we call vitamins. They were present in ample amounts in ordinary foods throughout evolution, so we did not need to make them. We only need tiny amounts of vitamins, and they are still present in ample amounts in many foods, but it is possible to become deficient in vitamins, and that damages health. Contrary to common understanding, there is actually no value in consuming extra vitamins, above what is necessary, in ‘supplements’ which is a huge industry. It has been shown that these supplements can actually damage your health! Vitamin supplements are however recommended in certain specific situations defined by scientific research.
FATTY ACIDS
The body can synthesize most of the fats it needs from the diet. However, two essential fatty acids, linoleic and alpha-linolenic, cannot be synthesized in the body and must be obtained from food. These basic fats, found in plant foods, are used to build specialized fats called omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.1 Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are important in the normal functioning of all tissues of the body.
