Receive the Nutrients Your Body Needs with Natural Supplements

  1. We tend to eat the same foods in our diet and therefore may not consume all the essential nutrients that a diet with a wide variety of foods should provide. Crops very often are deplete in minerals so vegetable and fruits grown in these soils may be mineral deplete.
  2. Antioxidants are our bodies main defense against inflammation and disease and help in preventing all diseases.
  3. Even if we eat fatty fish, most of us do not eat enough to provide the adequate levels of EPA and DHA to squelch the inflammation that promotes many chronic degenerative disease.

Breathing is vital to healthy living. Here’s how you can improve your breathing:

4 Steps to Optimal Breathing

1. Oxygen

Oxygen (O2) is the number one nutrient in the body. Many of our cells start to starve within 4 minutes of not receiving O2. The Next most important nutrient is water. We can only live a few days to a week without water. Then comes food. Protein, fat and carbohydrates are the caloric “macro-nutrients. We can live, in some cases, up to a month without food. Many animals that hibernate and store fat can even go longer. The “micro-nutrients” are the non-caloric nutrients that we need in small amounts that help our bodies perform correctly. These are the vitamins and minerals that work with our bodies macro-nutrients as co-factors and co-enzymes. We can sometimes live for years without the proper micro-nutrients, but we may have dysfunctions and ailments that can be corrected by the ingestion of proper micro-nutrients.

  • About 83 percent of our blood is water.
  • Infants have 75 to 80% of their body weight as water. As we age our percentage of hydration goes down.

Get Nutrients to Your Body with Proper Digestion

Optimal health begins with breathing deeply and proper hydration, and continues with consumption of proper macro nutrients. As the saying goes “we are what we eat” or for the more computer technical; a great program will perform poorly if not given the correct data. And for those not technically savvy “crap in equals crap out.” If we want our bodies to perform well and not get sick and injured, we need to deliver the best nutrients possible. Unfortunately, we are inundated with nutrient poor options. I like the saying that goes “if it wasn’t around for your grandparents to eat it’s probably not good for you to eat.”

Life, a characteristic state or mode of living, the conditions that distinguishes organisms from inorganic. What are these conditions?  In Biology, there are 5 conditions that define living: Motion, Respiration, Assimilation, Elimination, and Reproduction.
