Vital Nutrient Properties

29 August 2008

The following table is included in order to bring to light the benefits of some very useful supplements. This information should be discussed with a suitably qualified health professional.
Once again we need to point out that supplements should never be used as so many of the world’s people use medicinal drugs – that is, as “magic bullets.”
In the case of disease prevention, supplements should only ever be considered as supplementary to a balanced lifestyle and diet.
In the case of illness, the first step always is to establish the cause of our ailment. In most cases it will be found that the cause is either directly or indirectly related to our lifestyle and/or our diet and/or to constipation. Then we need to remove that cause – and this would obviously involve rectifying our lifestyle and/or diet. Then, understanding that we will never get well while continuing to do whatever it is that is making us ill, we can look to using appropriate treatments and supplements – but we must understand that supplements are never the beginning and the ending of our treatment program – they can only ever be considered as supplementary measures to boost the effectiveness of our primary treatment program.
All deficiencies should be addressed (a) by increasing our intake of foods that are high in that nutrient – see Nutrient Sources, and (b) by taking supplements.
