Extract on what the body needs everyday:

The Body Needs Over 100 Nutrients Every Day.

Soil depletion, erosion, food storage and shipping, preserving cooking all rob our food of vital nutrients and upset the balance within our chemistry. The result of this deficiency over long periods of time is excess stress and strain upon the chemical factories of the body. One of the first side effects of an imbalance is fatigue, resulting in energy wastage and yet more fatigue if not corrected quickly, acute or especially chronic disease can be the result.

Minerals must have a specific ratio of one mineral to another. When minerals are extracted from an organic source, they each compete with the others for space in the fluid suspension. Since each mineral or element bears its own electrical charge, this charge determines the amount of each mineral that will be present in relationship to all the others. This occurs every time automatically, unless the manufacturer alters that delicate bio-electrical ratio by adding inorganic minerals to the mix in an attempt to increase potency for marketing purposes, more is rarely better, balance and ratio are more important.

A product that addresses the concept of full spectrum nutrition, must of necessity, contain at least the following nutrients in the correct balance or ratio to each other. Six vitamins, three fatty acids, a minimum of eight amino acids, and seventy six base elements. Flavenoids found in almost all fruits and vegetables, have strong antioxidant properties due to the chelation of metals or the scavenging of free radicals. In addition, the effect of some flaveniods has been attributed to the inhibition of enzymes that promote tumour formation.

Carotenoids.

These antioxidant phytochemicals, like beta carotene and lutein, are found in such foods as carrots, peaches, papaya and spinach. They have been shown to improve and strengthen the immune system, thereby decreasing the incidence of cancer.

The body demands FULL SPECTRUM NUTRITION frequently. It is difficult for the consumer to sort through the many sources of information. The biggest challenge is to determine what is nutritional science, and what is marketing hype. When choosing a dietary supplement program, ensure you are getting at least the 100 plus nutrients from that program every day, to maximize the potential benefits from your enhanced nutritional efforts.
