Are you exactly sure of what is actually in your multivitamin capsule? How about any other supplement you may be taking?
Many vitamins and other supplements are made with synthetic ingredients. Your body really has a hard time processing these ingredients because it was created to process food.
At Mercola.com you can be assured of getting only the highest quality ingredients in any supplement you purchase. They are all 100% all-natural, with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. They are also made with organic ingredients which means there are no GMOs (genetically modified organisms.)
I have become an affiliate with Mercola.com from whom I have been purchasing my supplements for many years now. I wholeheartedly recommend all products, and have been unquestionably satisfied with them all.
Krill Oil Two of the best and yet simple ways to improve your overall health with supplements include:
Increasing your intake of antioxidants
I'm sure you've heard by now about two fats in omega-3 oils that are crucial to your health -- DHA and EPA. These compounds are not only essential to maintaining your health -- scientific research indicates that they may also promote heart health and provide immune system and mood support.
Now in a perfect world, you would be able to get all the omega-3s you need by eating fish. Unfortunately, studies show that eating fish can potentially expose you to a high degree of contamination with industrial pollutants and toxins like mercury, PCBs, heavy metals and radioactive poisons.
In fact, the FDA and EPA have put out health advisories warning against certain fish and shellfish consumption for young children, women who are pregnant or may become pregnant, and nursing mothers.
Many Ways Krill Oil Supports You:
Vitamin B12 The odds are good you are deficient in this "energy vitamin" discovered by natural doctors.
Vitamin B12 is known as the “energy vitamin,” and it is essential for many critical functions in your body, including energy production, supporting your immune system, and helping to regulate the formation of red blood cells.* Recent studies from the US Framingham trial show that one in four adults in the US are deficient in this vitally important nutrient and nearly half of the population has suboptimal blood levels.
Vitamin B12 is present only in animal sources of food--which is one of the reasons I advise against being a strict vegetarian or a vegan. This deficiency can result in less than optimal nervous system function, a tendency toward nervousness, and even less-than-optimal eye health.
NEW Form of Vitamin B-12 Is Not Found in Most Health Food and Vitamin Stores.
It all boils down to this...
Most of them contain 100-200 micrograms of B-12. But, if you actually took 500 micrograms of B-12, you'd get an absorption of about 1.8 micrograms. Let me repeat, only 1.8 out of a total of 500 micrograms. That's an absorption rate of only one third of one percent! But, that's only half of the story.
The late Victor Herbert, a renowned B-12 researcher, said that many multivitamin products on the market today contain dangerous B-12 analogs.
In other words, analogs get created when crystalline B-12 interacts with other nutrients in multivitamin products, such as vitamin C, iron and copper -- increasing your body's need for B-12. Does the company selling the multivitamin tell you this vital bit of information? Probably not!
Truth be told, most multi-vitamins sold today are a complete waste of money when it comes to their B-12 quality and performance. Now listen up:
Each bottle of B-12 Energy Booster delivers a serving size (1,200 micrograms) of 6 sprays per day. And you get approximately 205 metered sprays in each container. Because this ends up being a 34 day supply, you actually receive a nice bonus of 4 additional days!
How can you beat that?
Vitamin D Having too little vitamin D may not have any outwardly obvious signs. Yet vitamin D (specifically the vitamin D3 form) impacts an incredible array of support for systems and functions in your body.
Whole Food Multivitamin Plus Here's the stringent criteria I used to find you the best high-potency multi on the market:
A number of carefully controlled studies have provided startling evidence that by the time the food reaches your table, serious nutrient content could already be lost.
Some estimates report the nutrient value lost at over 50%!
This is largely the result of conventional farming methods that rely heavily on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, which deplete the soil of nutrients... nutrients that must be absorbed by plants in order to be passed on to you.
And it does not necessarily end there.
In many cases, it's likely you unknowingly further deplete the nutrients in your food -- just by the way you prepare it. For most food, cooking it will seriously impair its nutritional value.
So, realizing that you cannot always obtain the whole unprocessed foods you need -- and knowing how easy it is for valuable nutrients to be destroyed -- you now know why I believe adding a good multivitamin to complement your diet is a sound move.
Miracle Whey Protein Powder Protein is an essential part of every cell in your body. It has many important functions:
(1) Helps build and repair your body's tissues
(2) Assists in making enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals vital for optimal health
(3) Is the necessary building block of your bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood
... Even your hair and nails are made mostly of protein!
Particularly as you age, your body gradually loses its ability to produce critical amino acids -- the essential proteins you need for energy production, immune actions and protein buildup in the muscle.
Therefore, the need to supplement with these amino acids increases as you get older and increases even more in times of high physical stress, like after a workout, or when recovering from injury or illness.
That's where whey protein comes in...
Whey protein contains all the essential amino acids. Plus it boasts the highest protein quality rating among all proteins. Thus, it is a complete protein.
Whey protein is a by-product of the cheese manufacturing process. At one time it was discarded or used for animal feed, but researchers later realized whey protein has incredible benefits for humans.
High-quality whey protein can have dramatic effects. Benefits include:
Supports your immune health
Boosts your energy
Supports your joint and muscle health
Supports your beneficial gut bacteria
Promotes your muscle strength, endurance and recovery
Protects all your tissues' cells via its antioxidant properties
Provides critical amino acids and proteins for overall optimal health
Supports your body's optimal metabolic rate and fat burning level
