Nutraceuticals~
Most of us don't have a good working knowledge of what it takes to maintain good health and simply rely on our doctors to cure us when we are ill.  We've been lucky ~ nature has provided us with an incredible immune system and our age has granted us this amazing privilege.  But in case you haven't noticed, things are changing.  Unless we take care of our body, it will fail to function at its fullest potential and we will find ourselves out of balance and susceptible to illness.

The foods we eat provide the fuel, in the form of nutrients, that our bodies need to function.  And those nutrients come in the form of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water, amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates,  and phytonutrients.  Nutrients are involved in all body processes, on a microscopic level; from thinking, to fighting infection, to repairing tissue.  If we deprive our bodies of essential nutrients, we impair normal functions and cause ourselves harm.

Phytonutrients ~
A great deal of new research has introduced us to phytonutrients and the role they play in keeping us free from disease.   Phytonutrients are chemicals in plants that make the plants biologically active and researchers have identified literally thousands of them.  They have also developed the technology to extract these chemical compounds and concentrate them into powders, pills, and capsules.   These are called nutraceuticals - the newest type of dietary supplement.

Home test to measure your antioxidant reserves.
AntiOxidantCheck
Home Test $59.95
 

 

AntiOxidantCheck   uses a urine sample to evaluate antioxidant reserves. Low antioxidant levels can indicate the increase of free radical activity.   Free radicals, unstable cells, produce lipid peroxides that can be measured to indicate antioxidant levels. High lipid peroxide levels indicate increased free radical activity, which can indicate a lower antioxidant reserve necessary to counteract free radical activity.

Antioxidants are essential to your body's defense against free radicals. Free radicals can attack the cells of your body, affecting the cardiovascular, neurological, and immune systems. Monitor free radical activity with AntiOxidantCheck, as you strive to strengthen your antioxidant levels.



What's all this free-radical & anti-oxidant stuff?
Free-radicals ~
The human body uses nutrients and oxygen as fuel to generate energy on a cellular level.  A natural consequence of this cellular metabolism is that it produces toxic byproducts called "free radicals"These free radicals react with body tissues in a process called oxidation that can damage healthy cells. When the body can't handle or eliminate free radicals the result is aging, cancer, and degenerative disease.  Anti-oxidants are needed to neutralize or turn off the free-radicals. 

Anti-oxidants ~

are a class of nutrients which help the body to neutralize free-radicals and repair free radical damage. The most commonly recommended antioxidants are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lutein, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, and Coenzyme Q10.   Each time an antioxidant molecule interacts with a free radical, however, it is neutralized.  Therefore, we need to constantly replenish antioxidants in our system.   A balanced diet (or supplementation) will include antioxidants of several different types since various types are more effective against some free radicals than others.

Natural Sources ~
Any foods high in the nutrients mentioned above, including fruits and vegetables.

Essential Fatty Acids ~      "EFA"s
Probably four of every five Americans consume an insufficient quantity of the essential omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, which results in deficiencies as high as 90%. Such deficiencies can result in fatigue, dry skin, and dry mucous membranes (mouth, vagina, tear ducts), dry hair, cracked nails, depression, forgetfulness, aching and sore joints with arthritis, as well as a host of other problems. It is now known that the deficient fatty acid is almost always the omega-3 fatty acid. In fact, if there is too much omega-6 fatty acids in the body, the production of good prostaglandins and their hundreds of health-enhancing qualities is decreased. Thus, in long-term supplementation, omega-3 fatty acids, for example, eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexoic acid (DHA), are definitely preferred over omega-6 supplementation, for example, gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA. Thus flax seed, flax oil or fish oil is definitely preferable to oil of evening primrose or borage oil as a source of essential fatty acids.                                                                         Books on Omega-3 & other healthy fats
