In the past, food supplements come in one product source, but as time passes studies proved that there is synergy in combined product source from vegetable, fruits, mushrooms, etc. The flagship product of AIM Global, C24/7 is formulated by 200 medical doctors, scientists and herbalists of Nature's Way, USA. It contains 12 Fruits 12 mushrooms 14 supergreen foods and 10 essential fatty acids. It has done wonders to many distributors and users.
Based on my research and experience, I strongly believe that nutritional or food supplement is good for you. It's much safer for your health to take supplements derived from whole foods than synthetic substances. The real benefit is that supplements help your body replenish the necessary amount of dietary nutrients it needs every day. Sometimes supplements treat the true causes of health problems, safely, naturally and effective than drugs full of harmful chemicals that only treat a single symptom.
We have depleted soils. Foods are grown over and over again in the same soils, the mineral content of that soil depletes over time. The foods we eat no longer contain the nutrient levels we require for optimal health. Plants are treated with pesticides and chemicals, which further diminishes nutrient levels and phytonutrient content. Animals are in pens or giant feedlots instead of roaming free in the nutrient-rich wild grains and grasses they once consumed.
Transit time for delivery of foods takes longer. The lapsed of time food reaches to consumers losses nutritional value of the food we're eating. Eating these foods over time creates its own set of health problems.
Overcooked foods does kill the food, resulting in lost nutrition. As far as fruits and vegetables, consuming them in a close to a raw state as possible is always the best way.
Not eating regular meals or skipping meals put much undue stress on the digestive system and eventually cause a lot of uncomfortable symptoms.
Water depletion. Water is also depleted with minerals due to modern production methods. Tap water have generally more minerals than bottled water.
Digestion issues. As we age, our bodies produce fewer enzymes, mostly the important ones needed to properly digest and assimilate the foods we eat. Resulted in common stomach complaints like reflux, heartburn, upset stomach and chronic constipation. Besides aged intestines has slow absorbtion level of nutrients.
Stress weakens our immune system. Taking supplements can help to bridge that gap and give our body some of the nutrition it needs to function optimally.
Toxin Exposure. Your body needs nutrients to deal with toxins. When more toxins are present, you need more nutrients.
Nutrient Absorption declines with age. Studies have shown that older people need more nutrients due to malabsorption. This means older people need to take more nutrients in the most absorbable form.
Exercise increases nutrient needs. When you exercise you use more nutrients for energy production and recovery.
Supplementation may help you live longer. Aging is a natural process, but it's not fun, and if there are supplement that can delay this process, why not take them ? Try our Restorlyf .
Allergies and infections (deplete vitamins A and C and zinc, among other nutrients)
Exposure to air pollutants and other toxins (depletes antioxidants)
Smoking (depletes antioxidants)
If you are in a perfect world, you don't need supplements. But given the reasons above and the stress of modern life, the poor quality of our food supply and the high load of toxins on our brains and bodies, most of us need a daily supply of the raw materials for all our enzymes and biochemistry to run as designed. We are exposed to hazardous toxins and chemicals that poison our bodies, we live with too much stress, we don't sleep enough, we don't exercise enough and we are inflamed making the nutritional demands on our bodies even heavier. Those with chronic illnesses are in even worse shape. Nutrients are not drugs. They work with our biology by supporting normal enzyme function and biochecmical reactions, while some medications block or interfere with normal function.
As Dr. Mark Hyman said, "I have tested patients for vitamin and nutrient deficiencies and found that by correcting them, people feel better, improve their mood, mental sharpness, memory and ability to focus, as well as have more energy, resolve chronic health complaints or conditions and even lose weight. Taking supplements also helps prevent disease."
In many ways, supplements are to humans what fertilizer is to plants. Give a plant adequate amounts of sunlight and water, and it will survive. Add some nutrient-rich fertilizer (organic, of course), and the plant will thrive. For us humans, the same principle applies. A healthful, balanced diet supplies the body with sufficient nutrients to carry out routine tasks. Supplements such as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, phytochemicals, and more enrich the body's internal environment to fortify cellular protection, repair, and regeneration and support the Renewal process. -- "The Anti-Aging Revolution "
"Supplements can be used by everyone to protect against disease, eliminate deficiency states, prevent future illness and balance the body chemistry." -- Dr. Lawrence Wilson
Your Best Investment
(according to Dr. Smith - Renawal: The Anti-Aging Revolution)
Without optimum nutrition, you cannot achieve optimum health. And without supplements, you cannot achieve optimum nutrition. It's simple as that. Look at it this way: For the price of a basic supplement, you can protect yourself against heart disease, cancer, and all the other health problems associated with chronic low-grade nutrient deficiencies. In the process. you supercharge Renewal and put the brakes on aging. Personally, I can't think of any investment that pays higher dividends than that !
