Recommended Nutritional Supplements

Vitamin B-12

Vitamin B-12 synthesis occurs naturally in the small intestine, which is the primary site of B-12 absorption.  As long as gut bacteria have cobalt and certain other nutrients, they can produce the vitamin.

Continued use of antibiotics by the medical field over the past decades has killed off most of the bacteria that produce vitamin B-12 in the colon and small intestines that then store it in the liver (60%) and muscles (30%) for later use when needed.

Vitamin-D

Vitamin D is actually a hormone rather than a vitamin. The body makes most of the vitamin-D it needs. Only about 10% comes from the food you consume. Your skins contact with sunlight produces a substance called cholecalciferol, which is converted by the liver to calcidiol.



Vitamin-D has multiple biological effects. According to the Vitamin Counsel vitamin-D helps with:

  • Immune system, which helps you to fight infection
  • Muscle function
  • Cardiovascular function, for a healthy heart and circulation
  • Respiratory system –for healthy lungs and airways
  • Brain development
  • Anti-cancer effects

Vitamin-D also helps to increase intestinal absorption of calcium, magnesium, phosphate, and zinc.

Magnesium

Magnesium does more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain a healthy immune system, strong bones, nerve and muscle function, and works with calcium to support proper blood pressure levels and therefore preventing hypertension.  The mineral also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aids in the production of energy and protein.

Without a proper balance of magnesium to other minerals like calcium, a heart attack can even occur due to severe muscle spasms (magnesium helps all muscles in the body, including the heart to relax).

Enzymes

Medical studies have found approximately 75,000 enzymes in the body which are all divided into three category's:

  • Metabolic enzymes that run our bodies
  • Digestive enzymes that help to unlock the nutrients in the food we eat
  • Food enzymes from raw foods that start the digestive process

Enzyme Deficiency

There are several symptoms of deficiency that can include:

  • Skin rashes, acne, and eczema
  • Brain fog, headaches, and mood swings
  • Joint pain
  • Myofascial pain (chronic pain disorder)

Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is another sign of enzyme deficiency. This condition is the growth of abnormally large numbers of bacteria. You could say that it is bacteria that is misplaced or in its wrong environment and therefore causes havoc.

Good Gut Bacteria Or Probiotics

Scientific evidence shows that the right gut bacteria enhances the absorption and storage of lipids and helps to facilitate the absorption of needed vitamins and minerals.

Beneficial micro-flora either in your body or on the body's surface needs a stable environment in which to grow and flourish.
