Nutrition

Our diets in the 21st century are made up increasingly more of processed foods, high in preservatives, saturated fats and other nasties, and lacking nutritional value. People are always rushing around and don’t have time to make fresh meals, instead choosing for “convenient” options that are quick but nowhere near as good for you.

Even fresh produce doesn’t contain the same amount of nutrition as it once did. Due to over-farming and land degradation, the quality of many soils have been reduced, and the foods that are grown have decreased in nutrients. On top of this, conventional agriculture favours growing large crops of single food varieties, dramatically reducing the biodiversity of the food we eat.

Most people are missing out on:

  • vitamins
  • minerals
  • antioxidants
  • trace elements

So when you combine low nutritional intake with high exposure to harmful chemicals, is it any wonder that cancer, heart problems and other diseases are rising at levels never seen before?

What can I do to improve my nutrition?

Eating fresh foods and having a balanced diet is very important. A high proportion of whole foods is a must! Going to green grocers or even farmers markets will ensure the nutritional quality of your food is higher, as well as helping support local business.

But in today’s fast paced society, it can be hard to find the time to shop healthily on a regular basis, AND fit in eating 5-7 servings of fruit and veg every day! That’s where nutritional supplements can play a role, to ensure your body gets the most benefits, and can function optimally.

Nutritional supplements we like:

Good nutrition is a cornerstone of good health. Although the body can manufacture a few vitamins, it cannot manufacture minerals or trace elements. When the body is unable to obtain the nutrients, minerals and trace elements it requires to ensure proper functioning in sufficient amounts, the long-term effects may affect general health or lead to conditions associated with inadequate nutrition.

Feroxin contains a multitude of trace minerals including barium, bismuth, boron, calcium, chromium, cobalt, copper, germanium, gold, iron, magnesium, molybdenum, nickel, phosphorus, potassium, rubidium, selenium, sodium, silicon, silver, tin, titanium, vanadium and zinc. These assist healthy bodily functions and support modern lifestyles.

NOTE: I have been receiving lots of emails from people wanting to know where they can purchase Feroxin. The company making it has recently rebranded, and it is now called Natural Mineral Drink. You can purchase it online by following the link and all visitors of Health Helper will receive $10 0ff their first purchase.

Antioxidant

Free radicals are atoms or molecules with unpaired electrons that damage your healthy cells. Our bodies are exposed to free radicals through pollution, toxins and chemicals in our environment. A great defense against these harmful molecules comes in the form of antioxidants, which have the ability to neutralise free radicals.

AU_Antioxidant

While many whole foods contain antioxidants, the levels aren’t huge and a large amount is required to get adequate intake. Modere Antioxidant helps you feel healthier with an antioxidant-rich formula, for superior protection against free radicals.

Arguably, taking a multivitamin and exercising is one of the simplest decisions you can make to assist in improving your overall health and wellbeing.
