Not all vitamins are created equal.

Up to 80 percent of us suffer nutritional deficiencies even after all the food we eat. As a result of imbalanced diets and processed foods high in sugar, salt, fat and carbohydrates, you may be satisfying your appetite but starving your body of the real nutrition you need to be wonderfully alive, alert and energetic.

Even a multivitamin that supplies 100 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals isn't enough for two important reasons:

First, unless the nutritional supplement is made with biologically active raw ingredients that are carefully cold processed to preserve their strength and manufactured without coatings that prevent your body from absorbing nutrients, the supplement may pass through you with little or no benefit.

Second, recommended daily allowance levels were never intended to tell us the amount of these nutrients that produce optimal benefits. The recommended daily allowance only indicates the amount of these nutrients the average person requires to prevent debilitating diseases like scurvy.

If your vision of a healthy lifestyle aims at strengthening your immune system, boosting energy, being uplifted by a radiant feeling of well being and staying active at any age, then it’s time for optimal nutrition.

You may not be aware that there are three different grades of nutritional supplements: Food Grade, Industrial Grade and Pharmaceutical Grade.

Take a look at the following percentages:

• Food Grade = at best 99% pure
• Industrial Grade = at best 99.9% pure
• Pharmaceutical Grade = typically 99.999999% pure

This sounds minimal on its face; however, the difference between those percentages means that in a normal pill you could have 10 billion active molecules, and with food grade, out of that 10 billion you would have at least 100 million to one billion unknown contaminants that potentially could be highly dangerous or even poisonous. For instance, how many times have you seen liquid supplements with a listing of ingredients with no clue as to how much of each it contains?
Hypothetically, they could include mercury, which can be highly toxic.

Body Wise Tradition of Excellence
