Vitamin Vitality – What To Take and Why

Your energy comes from your cells.

In my opinion, toxicity, deficiency, and misalignment that impact your cells are the sources of disease and illness.

There are a number of supplements you can take to ‘feed’ your cells as required and therefore maintain improved health and most importantly prevent illness and disease.

These are a few of the supplements I feel worthy of taking each day and why – DISCLAIMER I am not a doctor nor nutritionist so please seek professional advice should you feel the need to.

Omega Oils – Dr Udo Ultimate blend: 

The truth is that fats are very important to our diets and overall health; the secret is to know which fats are healthy and which fats will kill. Essential fatty acids are healthy or healing fats—every cell in your body requires them to function, particularly your brain which is made up of 60% fat.

These good fats consist of the essential fatty acids: Omega 3 and Omega 6. Your body must consume these fats to survive. Without them, the lipid membrane around your cells starts to break down.

Dr Udo Ultimate Blend provides a premium natural source of vegan unprocessed, undamaged Omega 3 and 6 in the ideal ratio that supports optimum health. Omega 3 is an essential fat that your body cannot produce therefore must be consumed through diet.

Created by Udo Erasmus to tackle the key pillars of health: heart, skin, joint & vision in 1 product.

Benefits of taking Dr Udo’s Ultimate blend are:

Balances blood sugar levels and promotes satiety therefore beneficial to people who suffer from sugar cravings and/or blood sugar fluctuations.

Helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels

Hydrates & moisturizes the skin therefore beneficial to people with skin health issues

Two independent research studies investigating Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend capsules with elite strength and endurance athletes showed improvements in:

  • Energy & Endurance
  • Strength & Power
  • Recovery & Flexibility
Our skin is a window to our dietary habits – it shows us what’s going on in our bodies. If our skin looks dry or tired, then the rest of our body isn’t being fed properly either.  By supplying your body with the correct fats – Omega 3 and 6, which are essential for health your skin will soon start to benefit too.

Organic Wheatgrass:

Wheatgrass juice packs a lot of power in a small amount. It is 70% chlorophyll, which is the blood of plants. It helps to keep the blood clean and healthy and is also one of the greatest concentrations of minerals you can get.

In addition to chlorophyll, wheatgrass provides the following nutrients to the body:

Vitamins – Wheatgrass contains a high amount of:

  • Vitamin A (aids in bone growth, eyesight and reproduction)
  • Vitamin B (aids brain and body development, the nervous and digestive systems)
  • Vitamin C (aids the development of healthy skin, teeth, gums, eyes, muscles, and joints)
  • Vitamin E (helps the heart and reproductive systems in a form that is much more easily absorbed by the body than synthetic vitamins.)Minerals – Of the more than 102 minerals available in the soil, 92 of them are absorbed by wheatgrass, including:
  • Calcium (builds strong bones and teeth, regulates the heart, and helps balance blood pH)
  • Iron (aids red blood cell formation and the transport of oxygen to the cells)
  • Sodium (helps digestion, elimination and the regulation of body fluids
  • Potassium (balances the body, tones muscles, firms skin)
  • Magnesium (helps muscle function and elimination)Amino Acids – Wheatgrass contains 17 amino acids, including all 8 of the essential amino acids (which comprise proteins in the body). These are the
    8 amino acids that the body cannot manufacture by itself—it must synthesise these from the foods we eat.Enzymes: Wheatgrass contains a lot of enzymes and also stimulates the body to produce its own natural enzymes. Wheatgrass stimulates peristalsis and supports thyroid functioning.

 Floradix: 

It contains organic iron (II) from ferrous gluconate, vitamins B2, B6, B12 and C which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Iron contributes to normal red blood cell formation (supported by the vitamins B6 and B12) and haemoglobin formation. In addition, folate (folic acid) contributes to normal maternal tissue growth during pregnancy. Furthermore, vitamin C increases iron absorption.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral vital for the proper functioning of your body. It’s the fourth most abundant mineral in your body. Your body can’t make it, so you need to obtain it from your diet.
Magnesium is also called “the mighty mineral” because the cells in our body depend on magnesium in regulating day-to-day metabolic reactions to help in the process of cell division and protein synthesis, to facilitate proper muscle and nerve function, and in the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
The role of magnesium, especially during strenuous physical activities of people who trains or works out on a daily basis, is essential as minerals including magnesium are lost when we sweat. The intake of magnesium helps in the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and in the maintenance of electrolyte balance and normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Stress depletes the magnesium in your body. If you are highly stressed you’ll be using a lot of magnesium.
Magnesium is in chocolate which is often why we crave chocolate when we are stressed as the body is trying to get the mineral it needs.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C plays an important role in a number of bodily functions including the production of collagen, L-carnitine, and some neurotransmitters. It helps metabolize proteins and its antioxidant activity may reduce the risk of some cancers.

Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar

Drinking unfiltered apple cider vinegar (such as Braggs) can help lower blood sugar levels. By its very nature, Apple Cider Vinegar can regulate healthy blood sugar levels in the body, which is great for those with Type Two Diabetes. Apple cider vinegar can increase the good cholesterol so you maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system

Lemon water:

Lemon is an alkalizer, and when added to water, it’s an easy way to rid the body of excess acid.As a rich source of vitamin C, lemon juice protects the body from Immune system deficiencies. Drinking lemon juice with warm water every morning helps in maintaining the pH balance of the body. Along with vitamin C, lemons are also a rich source of potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium etc.

How to take

The key is making this into a habit. In order to make it as easy as possible, you’d be wise to take the above at the same time each day. Personally I choose to take them when I get out of the shower.
I have two cups and have 2 caps of Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with a heaped teaspoon of Wheatgrass and about 1/4 pint of water.
I then take the Floradix, Magnesium and Dr Udo Ultimate blend and wash it down with the above.
I then have another cup with 1/4 pint of water with a vitamin C tablet dissolved in it.
If you found this beneficial I highly recommend you read The Shift You Need To Make To Have More Energy if you haven’t already.
Until next time… make it happen.
