On taking nutritional supplements why, what, when & how This presentation has not been evaluated by the FDA. It is for education purposes only. It is not intended to diagnose any disease or recommend treatment for any disease. E. O. E.
Why do I need nutritional supplements? n My doctor says all I have to do is to eat a well -balanced diet and I will get all the nutrition I need !! n I don’t believe in supplements n I exercise, I eat well, I sleep sound and I feel fine.
Why – This might shock you: n According to a 1936 U. S. Senate Document 264 US Congress regarding nutrients depletion: 74 th “…millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough mineral. . . ” “… laboratory tests proved that fruits, vegetables, grains, eggs, milk and meat today aren’t what they were before. We can’t eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply our bodies with the nutrients we require for perfect health, because our stomachs aren’t big enough to hold them. ”
Why – Bet you don’t eat like this: n According to the National Cancer Institute: “…People are urged to eat 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day to reduce risk of chronic disease. ” n US Dept. of Agriculture surveyed 21, 000 people and found NOT ONE had the recommended daily allowance of 9 servings of fruits and vegetables.
Why – Think about this one: n According to 2000 US Dietary Guideline recommended 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. n In 2005, the same Dietary Guideline increased its recommendation to 9 servings in order to meet the goal of obtaining the 10 major nutrients. n Why the increase?
Why – Do you know: n According to the Earth Summit report 1992, on nutrient content of soils around the world showed a depletion of nutrients (資源枯竭 ): - Africa Australia Asia Europe North America South America 74% depletion 55% 76% 72% 85% 76%
Why – And you think you can eat right, eh? n According to Medicine Today Journal, 2002: - Sick soils = Sick people - Iron in spinach dropped 60% the last 50 years - Broccoli and carrots lost 75% of magnesium - Watercress lost 93% of copper - One must eat 14 oranges to get 1, 000 mg of vitamin C
Why – Absorption is everything: n According to Journal of Chiropractic Economics: “…. about 250, 000 pounds of indigested tablets and pills are pulled out of Seattle sewage filters every 6 weeks…many of them with the brand names still readable…” March/April, Volume 40, Number 6.
Why – Are you taking in all these? n The National Science Foundation finds animal requires at least: 45 minerals, 12 essential amino acids 16 vitamins 3 essential fatty acids n Dr. Gary Price Todd M. D. “ the human body requires all of the above for optimal health. But less than half are available in any kind & quantity in most food we eat today”.
Why – Believe it or not: n Shocking farming methods: - use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and waste contaminants. - harvest immaturely and artificially ripened, - sprayed, processed, radiated and coated with toxic chemicals to improve colors and prolong shelf life. n Most cooking methods (over 118º) will destroy 50% - 90% of nutrients.
What are the reasons for nutrition deficiency? Crop Nutrition Loss Environmental Factors/Pollutants Over-cooking p. H Imbalance (high protein, sugar, stress, processed food) Food Omission Stress Poor Lifestyle/Habits Food Selection Poor Digestion Antibiotics/Drugs Fast/Processed Food Lack of Exercise/Sleep
What? You mean my doctor lied? Understand your MD is in the sick business, NOT health care. Most MDs are not trained in nutritional supplements. - they don’t know enough to recommend, - they don’t want to recommend. Pharmaceutical companies are in the drug business. Nutritional supplements are not patentable. If we don’t get sick and die, many industries will suffer: - government pension will run out, - less business for MDs, hospitals, nurses, ambulance services, funeral homes, cemeteries, drug stores, labs, bio-tech and pharmaceutical companies…. .
Dr. Tim O’Shea: Source: www. thedoctorwithin. com “…antibiotics are getting less effective. …allergy shots never cured an allergy. …cancer & AIDS can never be cured by a drug. …the ONLY way to recovers from any illness is when the immune system overcomes the problem…” “…the US has the highest incidence of degenerative diseases, UK is the 2 nd…” “…the #1 cause of kidney failure is abuse of Tylenol…”
Two-times Nobel Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling, Ph. D: “…you can trace every sickness, every disease, every ailment to nutritional deficiency…”
How - 2 ways to do our business: n To cure diseases or To build a strong foundation? n "Give a man a fish, and you've given him a meal. Teach him to fish and he'll have food for a lifetime. "
How - The Cure To help allergy, we recommend OPC-3 To aid digestion, we recommend Aloe Juice To fight osteoporosis, we recommend Calcium Plus Problems: 1. 2. 3. 4. We became unlicensed-doctors Once the ailment disappears, PCs stop buying Constantly looking for PCs Imbalance BVs
How - The Foundation Instead, we should recommend our nutritional products as a daily basic requirement; like drinking 8 glasses of water, exercising 3 times a week, sleeping 6 -8 hours a day. Advantages: 1. 2. 3. 4. 10 -15 PCs buying monthly Consistent BVs More time to build our business Less work, less headache, less risk
We’re gardeners, think planting : SICK 1. Feed & nourish 1. Identify sickness 2. Cleanse & detox 2. Treat by drugs or surgery US MD

When – our timing is right… n 65% of Americans are overweight n 30% of us are obese n Over 40% of us have high cholesterol. . . n 50% of Americans over 65 have high blood pressure, and 28. 7% overall n Nearly 70% of people are unaware they have high blood pressure. . . n 5. 1% of us have type-2 diabetes, up 104% from 1980 to 2004. . . n Over 100, 000 Americans have metabolic syndrome, which is one step away from having type-2 diabetes. . . n 92% of Americans are deficient in one or more essential vitamins and minerals. . . We need to build a strong foundation!

Facts about Calcium absorption n Active transport site – first 6+ inches of small intestine where most absorptions take place is Vitamin D dependent. Insoluble form of calcium such as carbonate is absorbed here. Max. abs. 450 mg. n Passive diffusion site – end portion of small intestine, alkaline environment, absorption rate of calcium at these sites is 48%; however only soluble forms of calcium such as lactate and citrate. n The colon plays a small part in the absorption of calcium and is absorption improved with the presence of certain probiotics.

Final facts: n Harvard examined 91, 731 women over a -year period and found: 12 - who takes Ca supplements has less chance of forming kidney stones; - Calcium binds with oxalate (草酸鹽), an acid found in food, in the intestine and excreted in the stool. Oxalate is a major constituent of stones, not calcium. - drink plenty of water when taking Ca supplement. - kidney stones are uncommon in women.

Important absorption co-factors n Magnesium (鎂): is a key factor for bone strength. Sufficient amounts are required to ensure proper calcium absorption and utilization, thereby preventing calcium deposits (stones) in soft tissue. (Take extra Mg for better absorption. ) n Vitamin D has been added to facilitate the adequate absorption of calcium at the vitamin D dependant active transport sites (first 6” of small intestine). n Bone Health 101 by Dr. Cathy Carlson-Rink
