Why Take Supplements?
Many people question the need for taking vitamins and minerals, whilst
others swear by the increased sense of well-being they feel as they
follow a regular supplementation programme. We also hear that taking
supplements gives us ‘expensive urine’ and that a ‘well balanced diet’
provides all the nutrients our body needs. So, what are we supposed to
If our vitality is strong and vibrant our bodies are able to resist the
accumulation of toxins so that we remain in good health. But this
vitality can all too often be depressed by many factors such as poor
diet, stressful jobs, financial difficulties, unhappy relationships...
the list is very long, especially in the fast–paced, convenience–driven
world we live in.
Toxins are all around us, in the environment, in food and in water. The
immune system defends us against invading organisms but in doing this it
produces harmful substances. Metabolising food to produce energy also
generates a degree of toxicity. The colon can be another major source of
‘pollution’, particularly in western diets. Many people have inherited
toxicity through their parents and some people have weak constitutions
or weak organs which concentrate toxicity more readily.
When the environment we work in is depressed or stressed, toxins
accumulate more readily and the production of energy within the cells is
badly affected. As all the cells in the body try very hard to expel
toxins they use high levels of vitamins and minerals as their fuel. The
nutrients make a direct and strong attack on toxins. This in turn means
that more energy is produced further enhancing a person’s vitality.
This leads us back to good, vibrant health.
Health can be improved by influencing by both reducing the levels of
toxicity coming into the body from the diet and the environment and is
also helped by supplying plentiful amounts of minerals and vitamins.
The preferred route is to give the body a plentiful supply of minerals
and vitamins so that it can fight toxicity and break down the vicious
cycle of ill health and chronicity many people are locked into.
The fight against toxicity is not a ‘one off’ cleansing which one does
every month or every year, but a constant balancing act.
In simple terms we could say that the difference between health and
disease is directly related to the levels of toxicity you carry in your
body—the lighter the load, the more robust your health will be and the
more vital you will feel!
We can all enhance our health by taking these simple steps:
Consume a wholesome diet.
Take good levels of minerals and vitamins to help in the fight
against toxicity and to rectify any nutritional deficiencies that may
