Our growth, vitality and health are all dependent on vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are vital for proper digestion, elimination, nervous system func- tion, hormonal production and resistance to disease.
In a world where environmental contaminants are rising and our access to natural, wholesome, un-modified foods is becoming increasingly difficult, it is virtually impossible to obtain all the nutrients we require from diet alone.
Just any old vitamin and mineral formula won’t do.
Many of the popular brands sold in health food stores and practitioners’ offices today contain basic amounts of vitamins and minerals in nutraceutical form, with little consideration given to the synergistic requirements of these nutrients in the body.
- Bioavailability, assimilation and utilisation of nutrients must all be considered. Amino acids are required for assimilation and utilisation of many vitamins and minerals. These same amino acids can also act as neurotransmitters in the body, essential for proper functioning of the brain and nervous system.
