Daily Nutrients


Emanuel Cheraskin once said  “health care” is really “disease care” and that “modern medicine is really the fastest growing failing business.”

Thanks to science, research and our continuous evolution, we have developed  new ideas for healthy living.

We are each  born with different strengths and weaknesses as well as different levels of resilience.  Our environment may be hostile (bad diet, pollution, exposure to viruses, allergens, etc.) We know that  the risk is high for cancer if we smoke, regularly drink alcohol, eat meat, take certain drugs and hormones, and are exposed to exhaust fumes and pollutants.  On the other hand, we lower our risks if we have a high intake of certain vegetables, fiber, antioxidant vitamins such as beta-carotene, C, and E, and live in an unpolluted environment.  Evidence shows when plusses significantly outweigh the minuses, health can be restored.


Vitamin  And Nutrient Factoids:


  • Lack of Vitamin C is associated with a poorly functioning immune system.  Vitamin C can detoxify the body of over 50 undesirable substances including exhaust fumes.  Vitamin C may also be helpful in maintaining bone density and iron absorption.


  • Vitamin E in a scientific study showed that among those 67-105 years old who have ingested Vitamin E on a daily basis, have also  reduced the risk of death from heart attack by 47%. According to a controlled trial at Cambridge University Medical School, 500mg of Vitamin E reduces the risk a heart attack in those with cardiovascular disease by 75%.

  • Antibiotics can cause a Vitamin B deficiency effect on the body requiring supplements to regain the Vitamin B balance.  
  • Tartrazine is a food coloring that has been known to cause hyperactivity as well as a Zinc deficiency.
  • Frying food in high temperature oil can destroy Vitamins A and E.  Eating your vegetables raw or as close to room temperature as possible will preserve not only the vitamins but also vital enzymes as well.
  • Nuts, seafood, and seeds are high in Selenium.  Selenium is an essential antioxidant.
  • Diseases such as appendicitis, diverticulitis, colitis, and colon cancer are the result of Lack of fiber in the diet. 

  • Individuals with high blood sugars should  eat vegetables, legumes and whole grains.  

  • Tea (black) and coffee cause the body to lose water and minerals. 
  • Vitamin D Keeps calcium in balance.  
  • Selenium and Zinc are  two minerals that boost the immune system. 
  • Walnuts are a better source of fat than Fish, Eggs, or Chicken.
  • The best sources of Omega 3 fats are flaxseed and pumpkin.

  • Research has shown that optimal health required  an ingestion rate of 10 times the established minimum recommended daily allowances (RDA) of vitamins.  

  • Vitamin A is needed in the maintenance of epithelial tissues and is essential for reproduction.  
  • People with low beta-carotene levels have 30-45% greater chance of developing lung cancer.  
  • Vitamin B-9/Folic Acid is helpful with conditions such as neural tube defects in pregnancy. 
  • Vitamin B-6 may be helpful with conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and protein utilization. 
  • Vitamin B-3 may be helpful with conditions such as high cholesterol and poor circulation. 
  • Vitamin E has been found to reduce the instances of cataracts, cancer, and infections. 
  • Bacteria in the stomach manufacture Vitamin K.
  • 20-50%of nutrients are lost through boiling food.
  • Calcium together with magnesium is needed to enable nerves and muscles to function, and assists the blood to clot and helps maintain the right acid/alkaline balance.
  • Magnesium  is  a vital component of chlorophyll and is necessary for many enzymes in the body, working together with vitamins B1 and B6.  It is also involved in protein synthesis and vital for the production of some hormones including prostaglandin, which is responsible for its beneficial effect on PMS.
  • Excessive intake of Iron may cause cardiovascular disease.
  • A deficiency in Zinc will produce symptoms of lack of appetite, pallor, infertility, lack of resistance to infections, skin problems, stretch marks, and mental or emotional problems.
  • The deficiency of  Manganese is associated with joint pain, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and epilepsy.
  • Chromium is a constituent of the glucose tolerance factor along with glycine, glutamic acid, and cystine.
  • Selenium is the  anti-cancer mineral that contributes to glutathione peroxidase production, which gives it protective properties against cancer and premature aging as well as being essential for the thyroid gland.
  • Molybdenum helps rid the body of protein breakdown, uric acid, strengthens teeth and detoxifies the body from free radicals, petrochemicals and sulfites.
  • Potassium helps with irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness, pins and needles, irritability, nausea, diarrhea, swollen abdomen, cellulite, and mental apathy.
  • High blood cholesterol, fatty liver, nerve degeneration, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, senile dementia, and reduced resistance to infection are a sign of Choline deficiency.
