Nutritional Supplements

Proper nutrition is essential to complete health and well-being, whether that be physical, mental, or emotional. A balanced diet includes the proper proportions of protein and vitamins, to provide and enhance energy levels, guard against the risk of infections, and enable timely healing in the case of illness or injury.

In some traditions, the stomach is recognized to be the seat of all illnesses, and so the proper regulation of one’s diet and nutritional intake is essential to total health.

Vitamin Supplements

Fruits and vegetables provide a natural source of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, fiber and natural sugars. If your diet does not include enough fruits and vegetables, or you would like to enhance your vitamin intake, supplements may provide the answer. Vitamin supplements formulas can be purchased in the single vitamin variety and in multi-vitamin forms as well. Some formulas are tailored to meet the specific needs of certain segments of the population, such as women’s health, and men’s health, and multivitamins for children.

Powdered Protein

Eggs, meat, fish, legumes, and beans provide excellent sources of protein for overall energy and vitality. Whey and soy are also excellent sources of protein, and are often lactose-free. Powdered forms of whey and soy protein allow for easy mixing and blending with fruits, juices, yogurts, soy milk, or other combinations of ingredients, for tasty, healthy smoothies as energy enhancers. Protein shakes provide an excellent and filling alternative to high sugar snacks, especially at night or before bedtime.

Joint Supplements

Cartilage is designed to cushion the bones and provide support in the places where one bone meets another, namely, in the joints. Tendons and ligaments provide support to these connections as well, and aid in providing smooth and comfortable motion during all types of activities, from typing and sewing to running and biking. When the health and physical condition of these support tissues begins to erode, joint pain often results, with varying degrees of severity. Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM are among several naturally occuring compounds which aid in the healing and regrowth of cartilage and connective tissue. These compounds can be extracted from plants and shellfish, providing supplemental support to the compounds already existing in the human body.

  • Emergen-C provides a formula for Joint Health, with ingredients including Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM, in addition to the Vitamin C base.
  • Vitacost provides several forumals for joint health, with combinations of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM, with the additional option of a vegetarian formula for those allergic to shellfish.

  • Enzyme Therapy

    Enzymes are the catalyzing agents that allow the digestive process to occur. There are 22 naturally occuring enzymes produced by the human body to allow for the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and sugars. When these enzymes are lacking or not in the proper balance, the dugestive tract suffers, and nutrients and vitamins are not properly delivered to the rest of the body. In addition to those the body makes on its own, enzymes are also provided in the foods we eat. In many cases, supplementing one’s natural enzymes has been shown help restore health to those with digestive problems or other ailments. For more info on Enzyme Therapy, CLICK HERE.
