Unless you have been formally studying vitamin and mineral supplementation for a significant period of time, walking into your local health food store and trying to decide what is best for your body can be downright overwhelming! You’ll find remedies to ward off cancer, high blood pressure, cholesterol problems, sexual dysfunction, and the list goes on and on.

The real issue isn’t finding a vitamin or mineral that will “cure” some affliction, but rather to supplement to provide your body with the proper nutrition to prevent these issues. It’s easy to feel bulletproof when you don’t have any recognizable symptoms for any health problems, but that is the most prudent time to supplement. 

There’s no doubt that the best way to get your daily intake of vitamins and minerals is through the food that you eat. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to achieve optimum health in our society in whole food forms. It’s a sad statement for the way that the land has been treated by commercial food growers. Add to that the processing, additives and preservatives, and you’re really kidding yourself if you think that that is all you need.

A good multivitamin should be number one on your list. Hopefully it would include vitamin A, C, D, E, Thiamin, Niacin, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Biotin and Pantothenic acid. Make sure that these are in the right forms to assist your body as they should. We’ll consider each of these more in future editions on the blog. Also, be aware that the minimum RDA (it’s supposed to mean recommended dietary allowances-I consider it the really dumb amounts ) is designed to keep you from dying, not keep you at your peak!

Next, I believe that a good Colloidal Mineral is really necessary, followed by Omega-3 fatty acids. 

Let’s start with that. My wish for you is that if you do these things you will never know what diseases and illnesses you may have prevented.
