It is important to follow a diet that offers a broad
variety of foods, in addition to including high quality supplements. The body
is stressed chemically, physically and psychologically every day,
you may ask yourself
How often do you feel stressed?
from listening to loud noise to losing your car keys can increase blood pressure
and send 'stress' chemicals racing around the body as we try to adapt. These altered
body functions - chain reactions - deplete energy, increase free radical production
and may lead to stress-related health problems. Special nutrients can assist in
the protection of the body from stress, but these need to be kept in plentiful
Do you eat a high percentage of processed/fast foods?
can never know much nutritional value a 'ready meal' has compared to a carefully
prepared home-made equivalent. That's why supplementation can be so important.
you feel your work/home environment may be affected by chemicals/fumes/dust?
are all irritants that enter our body by ingestion, inhalation, or through the
skin. They can build up and cause various reactions, affecting our well-being.
A good example would be the connection between house dust and hay fever. Additional
antioxidant intake may help combat these environmental influences.
you exercise infrequently / not at all?
Too little exercise allows the
body to become sluggish, thereby allowing toxins to become lodged in fatty tissues.
Certain herbs and nutrients are especially good at accelerating the body's natural
excretion of toxins and wastes.
Do you consume more than average amount
of alcohol daily?
Alcohol (which is just fermented sugar) is rapidly absorbed
by the body and turned into energy (calories). Alcohol affects many of the body's
systems and over-consumption can lead to excess fat storage and also weaken the
body's fighting force
Do you smoke?
Smoking robs the body of
Vitamin C and certain B vitamins - one cigarette depletes 25mg of Vitamin C. Each
cigarette is a nutritional step backwards.
you striving to reach your ideal weight?|
The body functions optimally at
its correct body weight, like a perfectly tuned car. Carrying excess weight creates
extra work and a need for more nutrients for 'fuel and functioning'. If the diet
is poor then the 24-our repair and replacement of body cells is impaired. Equally,
being below ideal weight creates a weakened system as the body struggles with
reduced facilities for fuel and functioning. Formula 2 contains carefully balanced
ingredients to help provide nutrient support in either situation.
