Who needs nutritional supplements? The answer is everyone. Even those people who eat healthy and exercise.

One theory of aging holds that it is the oxidative damage from the free radicals that causes the cellular changes associated with aging . Anti- oxidants such as Vitamin C, Zinc and Selenium prevent these cellular changes from occurring.

Environmental pollution, nutrient-depleted soil, modern methods of farming and handling of food, they all play a role in the nutritionally depleted state of our food. Even if your diet is optimal, you are not getting sufficient nutrients from your food.

We were not built to stay indoors most of the day, sit for hours in front of a computer or TV, drive or do any of the things we do everyday. We are built to be out in the open, walk or run for transportation and eat fresh food. Our modern lifestyle has a lot to do with illness in general and more specifically, nutritional deficiencies. If I was a betting man, I would wager that if you are not taking Vitamin D supplements, you have Vitamin D deficiency.

Research is consistently demonstrating that the truly therapeutic doses of vitamins and minerals are far higher than the paltry amounts in the RDA’s (recommended daily allowances).

In the next four articles I will cover four supplements that everyone can use and then after that, supplements specific for illness.
