University research shows that 50% of people taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient! Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been linked to the following:
- Suppressed function of your immune system
- Degenerative processes such as arthritis
- Heart disease
You may be contributing to a vitamin and mineral deficiency with your multivitamin as well as the food you currently eat. Anytime you consume something processed (any type of food that comes from a box, package, plastic, etc..-bread, bagel, rice, pasta, cereal) your body requires vitamins, minerals and digestive enzymes to digest this type of food. Unfortunately, processed food is dead and has little to no vitamins, minerals or enzymes (VME’s). Even though the processed food does not contain VME’s your body still requires them in order to digest the food, so where does the body get the VME’s ? It robs them from your body!!! This means when you continually eat processed food your body runs on a vitamin and mineral deficiency. The food you are eating may be causing some of the diseases you are trying to avoid!
In order to reverse this situation stop eating processed foods and start eating more vegetables and fruit…both contain vitamins, minerals and enzymes, especially in the raw form. Also get a Micronutrient Test done. A Micronutrient Test is a simple blood test that tells you exactly what deficiencies you have…it may be the most important decision you make about your health.
