DAILY supplementation is no longer an option: it is a necessity FOR HEALTH – FOR LIFE! Here are 4 daily supplements Dr. Brown-Ruegg recommends:
Probiotics. Keep your intestinal flora balanced.
Probiotics provide greater health by maintaining a healthy environment within our gastrointestinal tract. Having the proper probiotic bacteria in your digestive system is essential for health and wellbeing and deficiency can lead to severe health problems. Under normal conditions this balanced intestinal ecosystem prevents the overgrowth of harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. When this delicate balance is disturbed the body can be predisposed toward infectious, allergic (e.g. eczema, rhinitis and asthma) and immuno-inflammatory (e.g. Chrohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diabetes and arthritis) illnesses. Current research indicates that the North American (Industrial) diet is DANGEROUSLY DEFICIENT in probiotic bacteria and this deficiency is implicated as a causal factor in alarming numbers of preventable illnesses from infancy to old age. We now consume one-millionth of the healthy probiotic bacteria that we did before pesticides, herbicides, and industrial farming and healthy bacteria are destroyed by eating sugars, grains, and by consuming alcohol, antibiotics, and other prescription drugs.
Vitamin D. Boost your immune system.
The issue of vitamin D deficiency as a major causal factor in immune system related illnesses such as seasonal cold and flu, chronic illnesses such as heart disease and cancer, and atopic and autoimmune disorders like allergies and multiple sclerosis, has received a lot of attention in the last few years. Clinical journals as well as the mainstream media have been reporting evidence that modern industrialized humans are severely deficient in Vitamin D and that this deficiency is a major contributing factor to illness and lack of wellness and prevention.
Omega3 EFA. Support your cell function.
Research is clear that Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are some of the most crucial essential nutrients for human health ever identified. Omega 3 EFAs are extremely important in the structure and function of every cell in the body. Your cells are what determine your immune function, healing, hormone levels, heart function, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, digestion, moods etc. Literally, the function and health of your cells determine every aspect of your health. Everyone needs to consume EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids in order to be healthy and to prevent illness and the modern Western diet is almost void of these nutrients.
Antioxidant. Protect your cells from damaging effects of oxidation.
Antioxidants keep the production of free radicals in check by inhibiting oxidation. Free radicals are blamed for causing various types of tissue damage, particularly those involved in atherosclerosis, the aging process, and the development of cancers.
