As you know from my many posts, I take Shaklee Supplements each day. I have been doing this since 2004. The many benefits of proper supplementation with whole health supplements have been everything from good cholesterol to no more sinus infections to more energy and focus each day.
When I speak with others about adding Alfalfa to their daily regime to lower their inflammation and help their sinus problems, they often start grumbling about taking 10 little tablets! 10 little tablets, not 10 giant horse pills, little tablets to help you breathe better and feel better. Sigh….
But today I heard an interesting explanation of why we need to supplement with vitamins. I heard a gentlemen say that since the body needs certain nutrients that we often don’t get in our food, we need to take supplements as well as seek high quality sources of our daily food. His reasoning was that our cells are constantly renewing themselves. If we don’t have the proper nutrients for the cells to reproduce correctly, we will begin to get bad cells reproducing! Disease will follow and old age will accelerate. So in his mind, taking good supplements only made sense!
And he is a very young looking and young acting Senior! So follow his advise if not mine and supplement with good nutrition such as my Shaklee products, eat organic local produce and exercise frequently! Stay well and healthy.
