First you must ask what are Trace minerals and;

  1. Do I need them?
  2. If so, am I getting enough of them?
  3. What are the quality sources?

To answer the first question, Trace Minerals are the source of much controversy as to which ones we need and how much.   The major reason for this controversy is Genetic Variation.  Every single person absorbs minerals differently. If the Body requires less then 100 milligrams daily of a particular mineral, it is labled a trace mineral. Minerals are inorganic elements and compounds that your body must have to function and must be consumed in order to be used.  Vitamins on the other side are organic compounds which the body not only needs, but many can be produced by the body itself.  Vitamins and Minerals combine within the body to become enzymatic proteins.   Enzymes are the functional workhorses of the body.

If you ever get sick or come down with bouts of acne or fatigue from time to time, you are not getting enough of various trace minerals the body requires to produce the enzymes the body needs to function.  Because so little is used, the body can become very sick when there is a deficiency. If all you consume is processed food, the liklihood of developing a deficiency is very high.  Also if you consume high amounts of sugar, you are changing the way your body uses and absorbs these minerals.

Something is terribly wrong with the Food Supply and it must be fixed

Food Incorporated  is a must see movie for everyone

Here in Santa Barbara, California, one of the Worlds Capitals of Health Consciousness …  This movie was stopped from playing only days after opening in the theater.  Food Inc. is a powerful moving and true documentary.  There are parts of the Food Industry that are doing everything in their power to censor this movie.  Buy this movie and send it to everyone you know for Christmas as a stocking stuffer.  Get the word out!!! 

We live in a world bombarded by taste sensations created by chemicals created from the breakdown of individual food components that is literally killing us slowly.  This process is occurring bite by bite and meal by meal.  The Food Industry has become even more powerful then government agencies in their quest to increase the bottom line.

I remember looking at a big chicken in the Supermarket and saying that is one old chicken.  You know the chickens they label roasters.  Now we have come to find out they are breeding them to be so fat they can barely walk and they are growing roaster chickens faster then the old types of chicken.  This is when we have entered what I call the “Man playing GOD with a small g” zone.

E. Coli is a man made problem created by force-feeding cattle corn, when they are meant to eat grass.  Our diet, which is rich in meats, is out of balance based on the huge subsidies given to the food industry through our taxpayer dollars that make cheap unhealthy fast food cheaper then nutrient dense vegetables.   We must return to the concept of cooking on the weekend and spreading the meal through the week if we are to live a long healthy life.

Living in a house with only frozen food and a few knick knacks in the refrigerator is not a status symbol of success indicating that you don’t cook.  It is an unwise admission of ignorance to the importance food plays in your life and your health.

Always Buy Organic Grass Fed Beef

Red Meat with beef in particular is an energy dense food that is jam packed with nutrition in a small package.   This means that it should be eaten in moderation. It has a full complement of B vitamins, minerals and amino acids.  There are 12 cuts of Red Meat that have less saturated fat then chicken.  I have heard and read a lot about the benefits of being a Vegetarian. For the majority of us, being a Vegetarian is not practical because of the spectrum of nutrients the body requires.  For example, how many of us want to forgo the fat we need in our diet currently obtained through red meat for nuts and avocados. To be a healthy vegetarian requires an inordinate amount of time spent in shopping, preparation and consumption of large varied and highly perishable meals. In many instances you would have to eat pounds of Vegetables and nuts for the healthy benefits contained in 1/3 of a pound of red meat.  Therefore, let’s discuss the benefits of Organic grass fed Red Meat and why it is good for you in moderation.

Hunting Down Free Radicals

Hunting Down Free Radicals

 

Build A Personal Standing Army of Antioxidants

How do Antioxidants protect us?

Oxygen the largest component of the body by weight does one of two things.  It either oxygenates your cells to provide the energy needed for the body to run or it oxidizes your cells and kills them.  To prevent this from happening, the body requires Antioxidants.

Oxidation is all around us in different forms. Rust on untreated steel, food spoilage (Browing Food), and aging structures to name but a few examples that you see everyday.  All aging and obesity is directly linked to oxidation in the body caused by free radicals.  Free radical damage is cumulative which is why it is important to neutralize them as quickly as possible.  This is why you literally need a standing army to fight these radicals.  An army of Antioxidants can literally neutralize free radicals as they form.
