What is a
Supplement and Why do you need one?
March 16th, 2006
One of the
easiest ways you can help your own effort to lose weight and get healthy
is through the use of supplementation. A supplement shouldn't be some
concentrated megadose vitamin that doesn't have the all of the other
nutrients that exists in juice and fiber of the fruit or vegetable. No,
a supplement should be "that which is closest to the actual content of
the food, plus have as much of the nutrients in tact that is contained
in the juice of the fruit or vegetable."
For years it has been difficult to
avoid offering supplements of some sort - after all, everyone wants to
take them. But optimally, the only supplements that should be taken are
ones that fits many criteria, which up until now we have been unable to
find. Some may fit many, but just about every supplement doesn't fit all
of the necessary criteria.
So what are the criteria and is
there a supplement that could possibly match all the criteria? If you
could find the good nutrition in a meal-replacement shake or juice, plus
all of the nutrients in the original fruits and veggies, you would
certainly benefit from that, too! You could then get a small meal with
plenty of nutrition during those busy and hectic days.

Answer these Important Questions:
*Do you or your children get sick
all the time?
*Do you frequently feel tired and
*Is there a family history of
*Is there a family history of heart
*Are you missing 7-13 fruits and
If the answer to any of these is
yes, then you need to get more fruits and vegetables for you and your
family. For many years the National Institute of Health, the American
Cancer Society, the American Medical Association, and every other
national health association has emphasized the importance of eating five
servings of raw fruits and vegetables every day.
The health benefits are numerous,
*Protection against cancer
*Stronger immune system
*Prevention of chronic illness
*Protection against heart disease
*Slows down the effects of aging
These benefits are not only due to
vitamins and minerals contained in the juice plus the active enzymes,
but also the antioxidants, phytonutrients and fiber contained within the
entire raw fruit and vegetable. There are many more potential benefits
of these nutrients such as improved intellectual function, better
eyesight and increased energy level. In short, our bodies simply
function more efficiently and more optimally.
One very important factor about
fruits and vegetables that is often neglected by Americans is that they
need to be eaten raw. Heat destroys the enzymes, fiber, and other active
nutrients present in raw foods. In order to receive all the benefits of
fruits and vegetables we need to eat them fresh and uncooked.
How many of us actually eat 7-13
servings of raw fruits plus raw vegetables every day?
Most Americans might eat an orange
with breakfast and maybe an apple with lunch. We are pretty good at
making sure we finish our one or two cooked vegetables at dinnertime.
However, virtually all of us fall far short of the quantity of raw
fruits and vegetables required to protect us from cancer, chronic
disease, infection, high cholesterol and heart disease. Very few of us
are receiving the nutrition required to help our bodies run smoothly and
efficiently and to maximize our potential for a healthy life. For our
children, the active nutrients in fruits and vegetables can maximize the
physical and intellectual development of our children as they grow
through the school-age years.
What is the best kind of supplement?
The best kind of supplement is one
that has more than just the vitamins and minerals. It needs to be the
closest you can get to the whole food. If you could take the juice from
fruits like apples, oranges, pineapples, cranberries, peaches, cherries,
papayas, dates and prunes, plus take all of the phytonutrients that are
in those fruits instead of just the vitamins that have been created in a
laboratory (synthetic), you would be getting much, much more nutritional
value that the body needs. If you could juice a healthy supplement from
vegetables like carrots, barley, parsley, beets, kale, broccoli,
cabbage, oats, spinach, tomatoes, plus have all of the phytonutrients
that naturally occurs in the vegetables, then the same would be true!
If you could make the ideal health
supplement, what might you do?
If you could make a healthy
supplement, you would want to juice the fresh fruits and vegetables and
then dehydrated to a powder form. Plus you would want to test for
pesticides or other contaminants in the product. You also wouldn't want
to expose the juice at any point to high temperatures that would destroy
the nutritional content - the vitamins, minerals, active plant enzymes,
phytonutrients, and antioxidants. Plus you would want as much of the
original plant content as you could get. And ideally, you would want to
take the final powder with water and get all of the absorption into your
body just as if you were eating the fruits and vegetables.
Can a supplement be as good as
eating fruits and vegetables?
There's no complete substitute for eating the real thing. But how many
people actually eat such a wide variety of raw fruits, vegetables and
grains every single day? If you could get a healthy food supplement that
contains most of the healthy nutrition in many fruits and vegetables and
you could do it by taking the juice from those fruits and vegetables
plus retaining the phytonutrients that are just as important to the
body's needs, wouldn't that help ensure that you and your family get
what you need? It sure would be great to get all the benefits of adding
more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. You just might be
preventing cancer and other illnesses by supporting a stronger immune
system which would help protect against disease and aging, plus
supporting a healthier heart and lower cholesterol.
We already take Vitamins, do we need
You really don't want to be taking a
vitamin supplement. There are studies that conclude that Vitamins alone
are probably increasing your risk of certain health problems. Those are
"man-made" and if you are just getting more fruits and vegetables or
something that most closely matches it, then you don't have to worry
about any side effects. Manufactured vitamins are "dead" vitamins. They
are not in their natural form, and are therefore not very well absorbed
into your system. The vitamins and nutrients in a healthy supplement
should all be absorbed into the body.

How would you make a healthy
supplement if you could do it?
1. First, you would be sure to
strictly follow the guidelines of the USDA.
2. Then, to ensure the highest
quality, you would want to choose well-matured fruits and vegetables.
3. Also, you would want to be sure
that there is a high standard for the quality of fruits and vegetables
chosen no matter where they come from.
4. You would want your fruits and
vegetables to be carefully washed to kill yeast, mold and bacteria that
are always present on fruits and vegetables and any remaining pesticide
and herbicide residues .
5. Then you would want to rinse the
oxidizing solution. All of these steps you would want to do at low
temperatures and in an oxygen-free atmosphere to maintain the quality of
the nutritional content.
6. You would want to test the powder
for moisture content, bacteria, yeast, and mold, while rejecting any
batch that does not meet specific safety criteria.
9. You would finally want to
carefully review each batch including raw material certificates of
analysis, origination documents and laboratory analysis to ensure that
the product is safe, efficacious and meets all Quality Assurance
