Event: Free Seminar on Vitamins, Minerals and Your Child’s Health – May 16

Vitamins, Minerals and Your Child’s HealthEvery day I send my kids to school with strawberries, carrots, blueberries, cukes and carrots… and many days they come right back. Even trying my best, my kids won’t always eat what I wish they would, so this is when I turn to supplements. I realize that nothing can replace the quality, variety and even the availability of nutrients found in food, and in no way are supplements a replacement for a proper meal. But I also don’t want to my children to be deficient in important nutrients.

If you are like me and have children who turn their noses up at all things green, and you need to make a decision about what to do to ensure your kids aren’t missing out on vitamins and minerals, here is a free seminar in the Washington DC Metro area.

The Truth About Supplements – Part Two

fruits_vegetablesIn last week’s post we talked about why supplementation, although it may seem like the right thing to do to ensure you get the adequate nutrients you need on a daily basis, may not always be right for you. We talked about the dangers of certain nutrients building up within the tissues of the body, which can lead to toxicity along with the additional burden placed on the body when a supplement made with inferior ingredients and offering poor absorption is used.

On the other hand, I also mentioned that since our soil is so nutritionally depleted, it’s unlikely we’re getting the nutrients we need from diet alone. This post continues the discussion, giving you more information so you can make an educated decision about whether supplementation is right for you.  Continue reading “The Truth About Supplements – Part Two”

The Truth About Supplements – Part One

SupplementsWhat is a supplement?

Supplementation is a process that has been used for decades, but the business of supplementation is bigger than ever. The news is overflowing with stories about athletes using supplements to enhance their performance and they are becoming widely used to improve mood, to combat sleep disorders and so much more. For our purposes, we’ll be focusing on dietary supplements.

A dietary supplement is intended to provide nutrients that may be lacking in sufficient amounts in your body because your diet may not be adequately balanced. These supplements are found in the form of vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, or amino acids – the macro and micronutrients our bodies need for survival. These products may be beneficial to someone who is deficient in a certain nutrient because of a certain health condition, diet restrictions or because certain foods have been eliminated or neglected in their daily intake. However, there is risk for overuse when a supplement is taken regularly and not needed.  Continue reading “The Truth About Supplements – Part One”

Essentials of Healthy Living: A Guide to Better Health

Have you checked out Essentials of Healthy Living (EHL)? It is a system that allows you to personalize your supplement and healthy living regimen based on your age, gender and any health concerns you may have.

Whether you are a 20-year-old woman who is suffering from premenstrual syndrome or a 65-year-old man with concerns about your cardiovascular health, EHL can help you choose supplements that will support your health concerns.

Core Nutrition is the foundation of the whole program. It consists of five nutritional supplements: MultiVitamin/Mineral, Essential Fatty Acids, Antioxidants, Probiotics, and Bone Nutrients: building blocks of basic good health. Stress, poor food choices, and illness deplete these core nutrient reserves. It is necessary to replenish these essential nutrients daily.

EHL then offers further suggestions based on age and gender, as well as your health concerns. Rounding out the program are lifestyle and diet recommendations.

This valuable resource is available online and in our store. If you require more in-depth information, schedule a consult with a health professional.
