Is taking vitamins and minerals flushing money down the toilet?
There are still people out there who think taking a natural remedy is a waste of money.
- It’s just flushing money down the toilet.!..
- The body won’t absorb them you’ll just wee them out...
- They don’t work...
- There is no evidence they’ll do any good …
My answer to all those skeptics is- “ Why don’t you try some vitamins or minerals and then put your head down the toilet and see for yourself ?.... NOT ! ”…... Enjoy this light hearted video link and watch this guy pretending to be stuck in the loo… let it be a reminder to everyone that vitamin and mineral supplements do play an important role in our health and we don’t need to prove it by putting our head down the toilet.....
….”Taking good quality supplements from a reputable supplier like Natural Chemistry Health Shop may enhance your life...keep you sane, improve your health, enable you to keep smiling longer and to simply enjoy your life..... ”
Of course you should be selective and only take high quality, recommended supplements from a reputable source and not just randomly pick them from the internet, or grab them out of a specials bin in the pharmacy or supermarket.
If you are not eating organic produce and eating alot of processed foods then your requirement for supplements is even greater.
There is empirical evidence that taking vitamins and minerals does help your health and that deficiencies can cause ill health.
New research has shown that the mineral selenium plays a key role in detoxifying excess fluoride from the body and restores the body’s antioxidant capacity.
Up to 80 percent of Americans are magnesium deficient which is difficult to measure with a blood test. In New Zealand magnesium levels are also low. Magnesium has been shown to benefit your nervous system, help sleep patterns, lower blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke.
Between 1965 and 1990 various studies were conducted in New Zealand, Australia, England, France and the Netherlands to investigate the relationship between prone sleeping position and the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS ). A review published in 1991 concluded that magnesium deficiency is at least one major unifying factor.
Magnesium (Mg) deficiency in dairy cows was recognised in New Zealand in the1970s and supplementing with Magnesium in late pregnancy and early lactation has become routine on most farms. Magnesium supplementation will reduce animal health problems, and potentially increase milk production.
Vitamin D Deficiency
Concern about vitamin D deficiency has re-emerged in New Zealand as a result of health messages to reduce sun exposure and encouragement to use ultraviolet (UV) sunscreens, reducing the skin’s ability to produce vitamin D.
Lack of Minerals in the Soil
When Percy Weston's sheep began suffering from serious illnesses. He traced the problem to a lack of minerals in the soil and the highly acidic super phosphate fertiliser, which had upset the soil's mineral balance. After much experimenting, Percy was able to save his sheep with a salt lick containing the depleted minerals.
At age 39 Percy himself also got seriously ill. When orthodox medicine could not heal him, he began to take the same mineral powders that had saved his sheep. In just four months, he was no longer ill. At the age of 97, Percy wrote his highly interesting "Cancer: Cause and Cure" book about his life. He was still actively farming at age 98 and lived to be 100 years old.
Today, our soil is depleted, nutrient deficient, leached, over fertilised with chemicals, lacking in mineral content, and then produces nutrient deficient crops for both animals and humans.
Our vegetables are not what they used to be. Many are grown from nutrient deficient soils and on top of that, sprayed with pesticides and herbicides.
By the time we get our so called fresh produce the vitamin and mineral content is low and they are full of harmful chemicals. We are just not getting the vitamins and minerals we need and so we have to eat organic and or take supplements.
Even those eating organic produce may still need a boost of vitamins and minerals from time to time due to the increased demands put on our bodies from -
- pollution- in the water, soil, air and environment
- heavy metal toxicity- occupational or in the water supply or from amalgam fillings
- processed foods- especially wheat, dairy and sugar
- overuse of medications, recreational drugs, smoking, alcohol and vaccinations
- stress !!!!!
If you are -
- not eating organic fruit and veges
- eating out a lot
- eat processed foods
- don’t have time to make good meals
- have a bad diet high in sugar, gluten and dairy
- have a high consumption of alcohol, drugs or medications
- have a lot of stress in your life
You may need a vitamin and mineral supplement.
