Are You deficient? Analysis published by The Food Commission found:
- Iron levels in steak have plummeted by 55%
- Iron Content in milk has fallen by 60%
- Calcium content in milk has fallen by 2%
- Cheddar Cheese Iron levels have fallen by 47%
- Fruits and Vegetables levels of Important Trace Minerals have fallen by 76%
- At least 27 Harmful chemicals are found in our bodies!
Like to find out Why?
The idea that you get all your nutrients from food is fine, but virtually impossible in practice.
Are You deficient? Reason 1: Poor Digestive Ability
Erratic eating habits, eating late, drinking with meals, insufficient chewing of food, eating on the run and stress contribute to poor digestion, making it difficult for our bodies to extract and absorb all the nutrients it needs from food.
Reason 2: Insufficient Nutrients in our food
We can't get all the correct balance of nutrients in our food every day as nature intended, as our food today is highly processed, genetically modifed, sprayed with damaging insecticides, pesticides and fungicides and is prepared in a way that most of the nutrients are destroyed. Current commercial agriculture techniques leave soil deficient in important minerals, causing the food grown in the soil to have the same depleted deficiencies.
Reason 3: Food Preparation/Storage
Many foods are shipped longer distances for longer peroids of time, some Supermarkets store fruit for several days in large conditioned containers, this causes depletion of Vitamin C and other life enhancing nutrients.
Many people use Microwaves to reheat or cook food; this depletes the nutrient content by at least 75%. Eating takeaways and processed food also reduces mineral and vitamin content.
Reason 4: Pharmaceutical Drugs
Pharmaceutical Drug use has escalated over time; many people are on Anti Depressants, Cholesterol Drugs, Anti Acids, Pain relief medication and steroids. All medications deplete essential nutrients, making people more vulnerable to deficiencies.
Reason 5: Environmental Toxins and Heavy Metals
Research carried out at The University Of Lancaster on behalf of The Worldwide Fund for Nature found the average number of 27 Harmful Chemicals in people's bodies. These included harmful pesticides, Organophosphates and Carcinogenic Polychlorinated biphenyls.
Reason 6: Water Quality
Water is depleted of major minerals and has excesses of others; did you know that Water Companies add Aluminium Sulphate to water supplies to make it look sparklier?
Water in some areas has added Fluoride, this is well known in large doses to cause major problems and was used in Nerve gas during the War! Content in tap water varies, but some bottled waters also have minimal minerals.
Reason 7: Weight Loss Programmes
Some Mass Market Weight Loss Programmes where people cut calories to lose weight reduce the amount of nutrients they consume to nourish their body by doing this; this can result in nutrient deficiencies.
Reason 8: Genetic Disposition
We all have Genetic Weaknesses, including higher needs of some nutrients and a higher rate of depletion for others. We are all different in our needs; not consuming or increasing the amount of nutrients we require for our genetic make-up can be a likelihood of some illness or how the genes express themselves if the right vitamins and minerals are not present.
Reason 9: Exercise Levels
Athletes all know that to be healthy they need to eat a good diet, mostly increasing their need for Protein, and may supplement that with Amino Acids.
Most people going to a gym are not aware that their bodies need more than a fizzy sports drink to get them through; exercise increases the need for increased nutrients and trace minerals are lost with any sweat or high energy workout as well as other major minerals. If these are not supplemented over time the body becomes chronically deficient, leading to adrenal fatigue, tiredness and poor performance.

Are all supplements Equal?
If you were prescribed medication by the Doctor would you want the best medicine? Don’t assume that all health supplements are equal as they are not. There are four different categories:
- Pharmaceutical Grade
This is the highest quality grade of vitamins, meaning the purity, dissolution and absorption meets the highest regulatory standards. These are available without prescription and are typically recommended by health care practitioners.
- Medical Grade
Medical Grade vitamins are also high grade, although they may not meet all criteria for Pharmaceutical grade.
- Cosmetic or Nutritional Grade
These are typically sold in Health food stores and some may not include the correct amounts or quality met by the other grades.
- Feed or Agricultural Grade
These are only used for animal or veterinary use.
