       Chart of Required Daily Supplements/Nutrients

(Take these in addition to MODERATE EXERCISE, a GOOD DIET, LIFESTYLE CHANGES and STRESS MANAGEMENT )

When is the best time to take supplements?

Take some first thing in the morning and then some with lunch or dinner to enhance their utilization

Minerals need acid to be efficiently absorbed – E.g. Ascorbic Acid, Apple Cider Vinegar, Acid-producing Probiotic bacteria

Nutrient

Daily Amount

                             Comments                        (Abbr. AO = Antioxidant)

HYDRATION

Water 

 

6-8

8oz. glasses

 

SPRING/MINERAL Water is best (contains minerals); Add fresh lemon slices for a zingy taste. DO NOT DRINK "Treated" (chlorinated and/or fluoridated) water from faucet. Body is > 2/3 water; used as lubricant, base for saliva, joint fluids, regulates body temperature, detox. agent,  alleviates constipation, regulates metabolism; Neutralizes acidity; ~ 75% in U.S. have mild, chronic dehydration.

 

RATH-PAULING THERAPY to STRENGTHEN CONNECTIVE TISSUE

 

 

Vitamin C

  (Ascorbic

Moderate amounts in fresh fruits and vegetables - largely destroyed by high heat and extended freezing (> 2 months); dissolves in cooking water (somewhat retained in soup water); Recycles vitamin E; Chelating (metal grabbing); MAJOR ANTIOXIDANT ;

Cofactor for collagen/elastin production - main components of cartilage, ligaments, tendons in joints, bones and teeth; reason why broken bones regenerate and wounds heal; strengthens blood vessels (preventing atherosclerosis); responsible for skin strength and elasticity (without which we are looking at wrinkles!)

Central Nervous System has inbuilt double-pumps to increase vitamin C cellular intake.

Vitamin C - Gods Medicine

Lysine

Flax Seed

¼tsp./1000mg

(280/230mg GLA)

Borage Oil Organic, unrefined

cold-pressed

Omega-6 – Anti-inflammatory DGLA is formed from Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA); most economically obtained from borage oil; GLA is also in blackcurrant/evening primrose oils, nuts, seeds, legumes, wheat germ, lean meat. Conversely, inflammatory action is produced from Arachidonic Acid (AA), found in butter, animal fat (especially pork), organ meats, eggs, seaweed, and also produced from Linoleic Acid (LA) consumed mainly in grocery store oils and processed products containing them.
