Humans are designed to consume very high calcium diets however the average adult has a calcium intake of only a fifth to a third as much as people in the stone-age.The US National Health and Nutrition Health and Examination Survey II shows an average calcium intake for American women of between 300mg and 508mg per day and only 680mg for men. Women and men over 50 need to consume at least 1200 mg per day from food and calcium supplements.The most recent clinical research clearly points out that all of our diets are critically deficient in calcium and the only way to get enough calcium is through supplementing with calcium liquid supplements.According to nutritionist and longevity expert, Dr Joel Wallach, if we don't get enough calcium there are as many as 147 calcium deficiency diseases which can result - osteoporosis and arthritis being the most common and debilitating.Other examples are: degenerative arthritis, high blood pressure, insomnia, kidney stones, bone and heel spurs, … [Read more...] about I’ve Got Osteoporosis – So What Are The Best Supplements I CanTake?
The ads for supplements to make you grow taller are so unbelievable that the people who wrote them must be laughing as they steal people's money for their totally worthless products. They tell you that if you take their pills, you can continue to grow until you are as tall as you like, at any age. If that were true, we would see people who are 15 feet tall and basketball would be an entirely different sport.They want you to believe that when you eat their special blends that include kudzu vine or other rampant-growing plants, you will grow like the vines. Of course this is ridiculous. Kudzu vine grows rapidly because of its genetic structure called DNA, but you cannot absorb DNA from plants or animals that you eat; it is broken down in your stomach and intestines into amino acids, the building blocks of protein.Or they tell you that their product will stimulate your growth hormones, but even if that were true, once you have gone through puberty, no amount of growth hormone will … [Read more...] about Do ‘Grow Taller’ Supplements Work?

Mineral supplements in this form contain more minerals, are non toxic, and are more readily absorbed into the body.By contrast, dietary mineral supplements such as Tums, coral calcium, carbonates, lactates and minerals of metallic origin are only about 3-5% absorbable - meaning that you would have to consume a lo of them for little benefit.Another form of dietary mineral supplements includes amino acid chelates which are around 40-50% absorbable.

There are literally hundreds of studies and articles in the medical literature documenting the benefits of fish oil supplements. Of course eating a diet that is naturally high in Omega-3 fats is good, but these foods may be high in calories, which are not good for weight issues, or may contain heavy metals or pesticides, which if eaten too often can be harmful. So the literature recommends fish oil supplements for most people.

Despite being the wealthiest and fattest nation in the world, many Americans are nutritionally underfed. Indeed, a survey by the Produce for Better Health Foundation found that only 38 percent of Americans ate the daily-recommended number of vegetable servings and only 23 percent consumed the recommended number of servings of fruit.Increasingly, however, companies are providing a measure of relief from America's nutritional decline in the form of easily absorbed nutritional supplements. Prepackaged in appealing flavors, these vitamins and minerals are seen as a crucial element to enhance Americans' poor dietary choices.
