  • We cannot get all the vitamins and minerals we need for metabolic competence from the standard three meals a day.
  • When the body has been assaulted by stressors, drugs, pollutants, injury or sickness, nutrients are lost more rapidly than normal and if they are not replaced, the victim’s ability to withstand stressors or fight off disease is reduced.
  • We use so many labor-saving devices that we need fewer calories. As food intake is reduced, it is nearly impossible to get all the nutrients we need without taking supplements.
  • Pollutants in the air, food & water put a stress on all of us. As a result, we require more vitamins and minerals to support the enzyme systems which aid in discharging these unwanted toxins.
  • Those sweet, "empty calorie" foods we eat rob the body of the nutrients required for digestion and absorption. In addition, food sensitivities and yeast infections damage intestinal lining cells so that even when we do eat nutrient dense food, absorption is limited.
