You Are What You Eat!!
1. Plants, Superfoods, Sprouting and Fermentation
Drink water and lots of it. Flavor it with Himalayan salt to replenish mineral. Flavor it with Nutralite twist tubes 2 GO, if you don’t like water. (These improve your immunity and add flavor to the plain water.) But AVOID Dairy, alcohol, juices, and:
- Eat colorful foods/vegetables and fruits
- Eat superfoods: Kelp, Turmeric, Dulce etc.
2. Clinical supplementation with PURE BIOAVAILABLE pharmacy grade products
All supplements are NOT created Equal. “Professional Grade “means that the quality and purity of the supplement are beyond question and are tested many times during the production process.
So it is extremely important to use:
Supplements which have been formulated based on scientific research and are thoroughly tested in a clinical testing. The difference is simple: quality, absorbability, and standards that are approved by the United States Pharmacopeia guaranteeing in excess of 99% of ingredients stated on the bottle. Bioavailability i.e. absorbability is typically much higher in a pharmaceutical grade vitamin.
Over-the-counter supplements can be CONTAMINATED with fillers and not the active ingredients. Store grade vitamins, which are the most consumed, must only contain 20% of what they say they contain. They typically contain all the ingredients per batch, not per capsule.
Pharmaceutical grade supplements should be recommended to be taken under physician supervision and should be:
- Non –GMO, Kosher, and Contain no harmful fillers, coatings, artificial flavor, free
- From yeast, corn, gluten, and other preservatives.
Supplements are primarily recommended for:
- Adrenal Support
- Anti-Aging /Longevity
- Bone Support/Joint Health
- Digestive Support
- Weight loss
