Basics of Nutrition Part 1 of 3

Here is the first part of a 3 part series explaining the basic guideline that we believe are essential in allowing your body to perform at an optimal level. This is not to say that what I am suggesting is only for people who train, workout or exercise, this is the foundation that everyone should take in order to allow for your body to begin heading in the direction of synergistic homeostasis. With that being said here are the following supplements that I will recommend, please understand that these are recommendations and before taking any kind of supplement you should always consult a physician, as I am not a doctor nor do I know your current health status with out having a Nutritional Microscopy performed. If you are interested in having one done please contact us via the website. Now that all that legal stuff is out of the way here we go:

Multivitamins & Minerals:

My reasoning for mentioning the Multivitamin first is because it is the foundation of any supplement regiment because it encourages efficiency in your body to function correctly. It is virtually impossible to take in all of your vitamins and minerals through food, even if that food is organic. There are many nutritional practitioners who will inform their clients that they can gain all the nutrients that they need by the means of eating a clean and health diet. This mentality is not only wrong; it also is hindering the body’s ability to function at an optimal level. Please understand that not all multivitamins are created equal. There are an array of companies that claim that there products are the best or have a absorption rate of close to 100%, but this is a lie and a ploy to have you purchase inferior products. I am a firm believer in only using liquid multivitamins, as the efficacy of these products as well as the assimilation seems to be much greater. Just for the record the product that I am recommending I am in know way associated with nor do I make any type of financial gain by pushing there product, I do so because they are hands down the best multivitamin on the market. So, what are the problems with so many other multivitamins??

1. Quality of the vitamins and in what form are they bonded.

2. The amount of vitamins and minerals that are provided inside the supplement

3. The source of where those vitamins and minerals are coming from.

4. Their delivery system, i.e. (pill, gel cap, liquid), which is crucial in the bodies ability to breakdown the product.

These are just some of the questions that you should as yourself when seeking any type of supplement, but more importantly a multivitamin. Remember, a multivitamin is the foundation of any and all supplements that are required for the body to function at an optimal level. After all if we don’t have the right amount of vitamins and minerals we are allowing our bodies to become deficient, which only leads to the bodies inability to perform. In order to understand why the quality, source and delivery system of the multivitamin is so important is to understand the synergy that each vitamin and mineral plays in the body and cohesively uses each other in order to accomplish their ability to be effective. The best way to put it is what Dr. Michael Colgan said, “It is the multiple interactions of nutrients that is the basis of their biological function” (Optimum Sports Nutrition). If there is a deficiency in the synergy of the vitamins and minerals than there is no question that there will be a deficiency in the body. Let me give you an example of what this actually means:

If you are deficient in vitamin B2 this will impair B12 metabolism, which then impairs folic-acid metabolism. If the folic-acid is being impaired this will lead to a deficiency in vitamin C, which then impairs the bodies ability to absorb iron and so on and so on. So, as you can see if the body is lacking the specific nutrients needed in order to function just in our day-to-day life, how will you expect your body to be able to recover when you are training? How do you expect to get the results when your body isn’t supplied with the correct and proper amount of vitamins and minerals in order for it to do its job? Think of your body like a Rolls Royce or Ferrari, would you go to some Jiffy type oil stop to have them change the oil in the car? Would you put regular unleaded gasoline in the car? Of course not, you would want to make sure that this $200+ thousand dollar machine received the best of the best so it would function at its optimal level, so why would you treat your body any different? The greatest gift that a person can have is a properly functioning body, and yet we dismiss and take for granted the importance of supplying it with the proper nutrients because we don’t actually see anything going wrong with it. The body is a complex and incredible machine that is constantly battling carcinogenic free radicals, toxins from preservatives and dehydration from a lack of water (we will discuss the proper water to drink in another article as well as how much). Now add on top of that the lack of vitamins and minerals, which the body depends on in order to function. I think you see what I am trying to get at, so here is the multivitamin and mineral source that I recommend:

PANA C-315

Why choose PANA C-315?

It is an all-natural liquid nutritional supplement. The product contains more than 315 nutrients that are microcomplexed with organic carbon. This means that all the nutrients have been bound to organic carbon, the very substance that comprises most of the earth's matter. Therefore, PANA C-315 is very homogeneous to the human body. Its liquid form is extremely well tolerated and efficiently absorbed. It is efficacious and safe for all members of your family.
PANA C-315 is all natural, vegetarian; drug free, caffeine free and preservative free. They also use a technology called IntraCELL V technology, I am not going to try and attempt to describe it as I will not do it justice, but here is an explanation from the site itself:

IntraCELL™ V Technology is the new proprietary groundbreaking "carbon-bond" technology.
• First, it surrounds, then polymerizes an inorganic molecule (toxin) with living organic carbon, then instantly breaks it into very tiny restructured organically complexed molecules.
• Second, intraCELL™ V Technology converts inorganic elements and molecules to be 100% organically microcomplexed™ for maximum intra-cellular and extra-cellular detoxification.
Then, intraCELL™ V Technology instantly infuses over 315+ life promoting, 100% carbon-bond organic microcomplexed™ nutrients into the cell.

I started to list all of the nutritional information on the bottle, but then this article would have turned into six pages. I advise anyone who is seeking a multivitamin and mineral supplement to click the link above to see how efficient this product actually is as well as what it will do for the synergy in your body. If you are in the market for an organic multivitamin and mineral supplement that will lay the foundation for synergy within the body then I highly recommend this product.
