biological fact that cannot be ignored is that the human body needs a good supply of essential nutrients to survive. Minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids and amino acids all have their own individual tasks to play in our bodily functions. Current studies suggest that most people aren’t getting enough nutrients in their diet. The Centres for Disease Control (CDC) show that 76% of adults don’t meet fruit intake recommendations and 86% don’t meet vegetable intake recommendations.
Eating ‘Healthy’ May Not Be Enough
Even those who do eat ‘healthy’ and consume the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables a day may find they are still not getting enough nutrients to feel their best.
With depleted soils, over-farming and crops chosen over time in favour of a faster yield, we can’t necessarily rely on simply eating fruit and vegetables found on the grocery shelves. Add to this, pesticides, GMO (genetically modified food), unhealthy diets filled with too much fat, sugar, salt and carbs plus other unhealthy toxins in our world and our health and wellness is suffering.
Many individuals take vitamin supplements to increase their intake of vitamins but the sad fact is that many vitamins found on the shelf today are synthetically made (often in a lab). Studies have found that only 8-12% of these store-bought nutritional supplements are actually absorbed by the body. That means that approximately 90% of typical supplements are flushed down the drain.
We are now seeing an increase in certain ‘modern diseases’ such as auto-immune disorders, blood sugar problems, digestive issues plus many more as we downplay our body’s basic needs for good nutrition.
Dr Wallach and 90 Essential Nutrients
Dr Joel Wallach, a biomedical research pioneer, spent decades in the field of Veterinary Medicine observing and researching the effects of individual nutrients on animal health before becoming a Naturopath and turning his attention to the human body.
Through his many years of research, he found that, the human body needs 90 essential nutrients to survive and thrive and if given these nutrients in the necessary quantities and with an avoidance of certain ‘bad foods’, the human body can in-fact heal itself from many chronic illnesses and health complaints.
He devised Youngevity’s 90 for Life Health System and the Healthy Body Start Pak 2.0.
