Why "Natural Health Supplements"?
Natural health supplements ensure that our bodies function as they were designed. Our foods, even the best organic ones, do not have everything that our bodies need to sustain and maximize our health. Nutritional health supplements
fill in the nutritional gaps.
Essential Vitamins for the Human Body
Essential Minerals For the Human Body
Ever wonder why the word 'essential' usually precedes the term, 'vitamins'?
The reason is simple.
The body lacks the ability to manufacture most vitamins on its own and instead, must rely on outside sources, (i.e. natural health supplements) to meet its nutritional needs. This is why natural vitamins and minerals are so important to take everyday.
Vitamins are organic compounds and as such they're found naturally in many of the foods we consume. The problem is -because of mass production and over-farming, the use of chemicals both for fertilizers and pesticides, our foods lack the nutritional content they had years ago. Fortunately, we have
natural health supplements available today.
Thirteen different vitamins are needed to perform such crucial functions as helping protect against infections and disease, regulating the body's metabolism, facilitating growth and helping the body remove wastes.
Vitamins are a lot like building blocks. A healthy body is able to put these blocks together to create the enzymes and hormones that, among other things, control heart rate, blood pressure, glucose levels and other chemical reactions.
How Much is Enough?
The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of the various vitamins is different depending on a person's age and current state of health. Women who are pregnant for example, need a different combination of vitamins to protect the fetus against birth defects. Adult men have different requirements than adult women. Children, teenagers and the elderly all have different nutritional requirements as well.
Thinking about food as a source of fuel is helpful. Give your body the right type of fuel and it will perform at optimum capacity. Fuel it with the wrong things, and over time, performance will begin to decline.
Problems Associated with Vitamin Deficiencies
Although perhaps not noticeable at first, vitamin deficiencies can lead to serious health issues further on down the road. Few people today eat what would be considered a nutritionally-balanced diet. High fat foods, processed foods, fast food and restaurant food have taken the place of healthy natural foods.
Because you can't see what is going on inside your body, it's difficult to get a good understanding of the negative effects a poor diet can have. Generally, it's not until the body is ill, has disease, or begins putting on excess weight that the effects start to become visually noticeable.
What types of problems are associated with vitamin deficiencies?
Insufficient Vitamin D can cause weak or even deformed bones. Not enough Vitamin E can lead to the destruction of red blood cells.
Not enough Vitamin C can cause tiredness, weakness, sore muscles and can cause gums to bleed. An overall vitamin deficiency can even lead to death.
Natural health supplements are an effective way to fill in the nutritional gaps caused by poor eating habits. But beyond that, the only accurate way of knowing if the body is getting enough natural vitamins and minerals is with a blood test. If you don't think you're getting enough vitamins, you probably aren't. Do yourself a favor and find out soon.
