Most People Just Flush Their Vitamins Down the Toilet
Are you one of those people who take the time to purchase vitamins with the hopes of improving or maintaining your health? Sorry to give you the bad news but if you are taking vitamin pills or capsule you probably wasting your hard earned money.
For one thing, according to studies, on the average you are only absorbing approximately 10% of the pill or capsule vitamin. The rest of the vitamin goes in the toilet and flushed to where ever waste is routed. “If the pill is compacted too tightly when it is manufactured, or the coating is too thick, it will pass through your body without dissolving.Â Many vitamin pills contain questionable ingredients such as binders, fillers or preservative that the body cannot use, absorb or digest.Â The sewer system in Tacoma, WA, â€śfilters out more than 250, pounds of undigested vitamin pills every week.”Â

~There can be no argument…fresh fruits and veggies are natures gift to us~
The beautiful bright colors of fruits and veggie hold vital secrets which supplement our body, when eaten, with a powerhouse pack with vitamins and minerals.Â These vitamins, minerals and fiber are design specifically to keep my and your body healthy….just think…it all comes from our wonderful Universal Mother…Mother Earth…it simply is oursÂ for the asking…and at such a reasonable price.Â Nothing could be better…everything that we need to supplement our body comes from the earth in some way….If we supply our diet with fruits and veggies regularly, we will get an ample supply of vitamins for hot flashes.
Recently the American Medical Association said. â€ś people who eat a normal diet may not be getting vitamins.â€ťÂ Quite frankly that statement surprised me.Â For the longest time the AMA held the position that you could attain all the vitamins you need from your food intake.Â I view the AMAâ€™s newly established position on the use of vitamins as a â€śradicalâ€ť reversalÂ on the consumptionÂ of vitamins.
Does the AMA know something we donâ€™t know but should about our nutritional needs?Â Now the AMA is acknowledging that low vitamin intake has been linked to a host of illnesses.Â As a matter of fact two Harvard Medical School doctors recommend that everyday, everyone, regardless of age or health status, take a daily multivitamin. Currently more than 100 million American use dietary supplements while only a dismal 9% eat enough fruits and vegetable, and foods rich in nutrients.
Even for the AMA thereâ€™s no getting around it – with the depletion ofÂ the soil, toxins, abundance of pesticides in your food, pollution and whatever else – unfortunately, simply eating your way to good nutrition may not be the total answer.Â Please donâ€™t misunderstand what Iâ€™m saying here.Â Although vitamins have been proven to increase a personâ€™s health you still need to provide your body with all the marvelous foods mother nature provides which are loaded with all sorts of nutrients and vitamins.
According my latest readingÂ nutritional health can also play a part in menopausal discomforts…So I hope I hope you don’t mind if I include a few helpful tips for basic health needs from time to timeÂ
By eating a diet chock-full with all the good â€śstuffâ€ť mother nature has provided such as fruits and vegetable you are nourishing your body.Â Â A Harvard Medical doctor spent a great-deal of time reviewing 40 years of data and determined which vitamins work best to prevent cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and birth defects. In addition, the fruits and veggies which are provided by our gracious mother natures provides the vitamins for hot flashes.
You know even when you make reasonable efforts to do your best we are still at risk.Â Elderly folks, alcoholics and yes even vegans run an even greater risk according to the Harvard doctor.
So what should you do to optimize your health?
lst - You want to take a good multivitamin to provide for any deficiency in your diet. Personally I like the liquid vitamin….that way I’m assured of assimilation in body.
2nd – Advice youâ€™ve been given or have heard for years, eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables daily. Be sure to have plenty of fiber in your diet everyday.
(Note- Spinach seems to beÂ the â€śSuper Vegetableâ€ť because itâ€™s simplyÂ loaded with â€śtonsâ€ť of important nutrients- fresh is best) Frankly I seek outÂ organic produce when itâ€™s feasible, organic lessen our “exposure” to harmful pesticides and toxins and it helps our organic farms thrive.
3rd – If you are not currently reading all food labels you shouldÂ start today.Â You want to know what is in the food you are consuming and how it can affect your body.Â Be sure and look up any terms you are not sure of so that you can make intelligent decisions about your food choices.
4th – Avoid deep fried foods, hydrogenated oils, over indulgence of fats and excessive sugar in your diet.
5th – Drink plenty of water throughout the day. â€śWater is the single most important factor to human life.â€ť
Side note- The San Francisco bay area, the area in which I live,Â has developed a rich “Farmer’s Market” culture…
…that is farmers from near and far are invited into urban areasÂ to make-up farmer’s market. Rightly so, the markets have grown to great popularity…as a result, you can find a Farmer’s Market in various location throughout the bay on almost every day of the week…nice!Â NowÂ us city folk can always have access to nature’sÂ gifts…our fresh fruits and veggies… Plus, for those women who experience discomforting menopausal symptoms, remember, your fresh fruits and veggies contain vitamins for hot flashes.
*Just a word of caution here, be sure to do your own â€śhomeworkâ€ť and seek the advice of a medical professional as needed.
