Super Supplements are an additional compliment to a super healthy diet plan. They work together with all the superfoods to fill in any missing pieces to the "superhealth puzzle."
As humans evolve, we continue to invent and discover new things that are beneficial to our continued grow as a higher species.
I use to think that there was no need to take additional supplements, that I could get everything from the foods I ate.
However, over the years, I changed my tune a bit. I was admittedly stubborn about having to buy "products" and "just another pill."
But, I realized that we live in a world that, unfortunately, is not a perfect paradise...yet.
Therefore, it could only be to our advantage to use these super supplements to help correct any imbalances, possible deficiencies or build up of wastes that are inhibiting the immune system and health in any way.
When I was a child there was a phase of my life when I lived RIGHT BY a major International airport, with large jet planes and jet fuel flying over my house everyday.
Sometimes we can not control environmental conditions that are part of childhood or day to day life, but we can add superfood supplements to our diet to counter the effects they have on our health.
These supplements can help to fill in (fortify) or take out (cleanse) the side effects of pollutants, heavy metals or contaminants that exist around us.
We all undergo bodily stress from toxic exposure we encounter everyday on some level. There is really no escaping it. But, we can do something about it!
In addition to a healthy superfood diet and lifestyle, I have found that taking these top health food supplements has been extremely helpful in regenerating my own nerve force and balance.
Here is a list of the super supplements "SUPREME" we recommend to further your progress toward greater health.
They are leading the way in the super health movement, the latest extracts and formulations to provide a compliment to a healthy diet plan using superfood nutrition.
Many people today for a variety of reasons, whether they consume animal products or not, are vitamin B12 deficient.
This can be a result of hectic lifestyles, external stress factors and environmental toxins that put a strain on our ability to absorb this all important vitamin.
Vit B12 provides almost instant relief from fatigue and exhaustion. Sublingual methyl B-12 from Jarrow is better absorbed and retained than other forms of B12, supporting nerve tissue and brain cells, promotes better sleep and reduces toxic homocysteine to the essential amino acid methionine.
We also like Healthy Habits B12 patches which have been studied to be more effective for some individuals.
Zeolite is a volcanic, clay mineral substance. Its crystalline structure forms a sort of "cage" that works, like a magnet, to attract heavy metals, chemicals and other pollutants, capturing them and removing these harmful toxins from the body.
Our two favorite omega oils are Krill oil or Omega-Zen 3 oil.
Krill oil is derived from shrimp-like crustaceans thriving in the wild Antartic seas, Krill oil has recently become popular has a rich, bio-available source of Omega 3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA for building healthy cell membranes.
Omega-Zen is an seaweed based oil great for strict vegans. It contains both EPA and DHA. It comes in soft gel caps.
Most people suffer from the lack of sufficient metabolic enzymes. This condition prevents full nutrient intake from the foods we eat.
In addition, it causes your food to be only partially digested, leading to excess waste accumulation and toxic effects in the body.
Digestive enzymes help to break down your foods into digestible, absorbable fuel and nutrition.
This may be important at certain phases of health, to help you move things through more efficiently. They are especially helpful when eating cooked food because enzymes are not present.
Vitamineral Green "is an extremely potent and comprehensive array of nature’s most nutritive and cleansing superfoods, grown and processed to maximize their benefits.
It contains a full spectrum of naturally occurring, absorbable and non-toxic vitamins, minerals, all the essential amino acids (protein), antioxidants, chlorophyll soluble and insoluble fibers, tens of thousands of phytonutrients, and a plethora of other synergistically bound, organic nutrients".
Along with eating a diet rich in fermented foods, it is also helpful, a couple times of year, to take a bottle of probiotic super supplements. These are tiny micro flora organisms that, with the help and innovation of science, can be captured in powdered form.
They are easily absorbed into the body and digestive tract, proliferating into the billions and balancing the often over acidic conditions of the inner body ecology.
Primal Defense is an excellent brand of soil based organisms that is, in our opinion, one of the highest qualities available.
On occasion we like to use Healthforce Nutritionals Intestinal Drawing Formula to clean out any possible waste accumulating in the intestinal tract.
You can take it for periods of time to promote bowel movements and suck out and eliminate any back up in this area.
It is perfect for someone doing a cleanse and especially helpful to use with zeolite to rid the body of heavy metals, plastics or other chemicals.
Iodine is a needed nutrient for optimal thyroid health. It can not be stored by the body so we need to consume it through foods.
When the thyroid is out of balance this is the top #1 superfood supplement we recommend for detoxing negative effects of radiation, plastics, pesticides, depleted uranium or heavy metal uptake.
After this cleansing process, iodine will replenish and replace much needed nutrients that promote a healthy thyroid gland.
Learn more about why we suggest "nascent iodine" over other brands often prescribed.
Raw Calcium by Vitamin Code is one of the only calcium supplements we would recommend because it is plant food based and doesn't contain harmful carbonates and other ingredients many calcium concentrates include.
Most of these calcium supplements cause calcification in the body and other health problems. Raw Calcium has 73 naturally occurring minerals and trace elements that have all been recommended for healthy bone structure.
It uniquely blends a host of other raw vitamins and minerals as well as live probiotics and enzymes. Not only that, it contains the important vitamin K2, sourced from MK-7 form which is known to last longer in the body.
MSM stands for Methylsulfonylmethane and is a naturally occurring solvent and sulfur based compound. Increasing your intake of MSM powder daily is especially helpful in building tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
It works to rebuild collagen levels and provides greater flexibility in the joints, by dissolving the source of siftness, pain or inflamation.
Megafood's is a wonderful vitamin company using organic whole food concentrates.
This Vitamin D3 is the most bioactive and bioavailable form of this essential nutrient. There is a growing body of evidence that many adults and the elderly are deficient in Vitamin D.
For individuals who do not receive adequate sun exposure, including a Vitamin D3 supplement into your daily diet is highly recommended..
Also called "The Silver Bullet", helps significantly in vitamin and mineral uptake and absorption that will help to nourish and rebuild health.
This is an essential supplement if you are severely depleted. It will help a weak system pull in the needed nutrients from all other vitamin concentrates.
It is recommended to ake 2-7 drops on the tongue first thing in the morning. (1 drop per 50lbs of body weight.) It is a small bottle but it goes a long way because you only need a few days to do the job.
(See my page on the amazing TA 65 supplement, if you are 40 years and older or have serious health conditions. Its a powerful way to take your health to new levels by increasing telomere length.)
Most of us have one or more bodily systems that are weaker than others and could use extra help and support.
For example, if you suffer from stress or insomnia your nervous system may be in greatest need of "direct action." If you have high blood pressure, your circulatory system may need the most help.
Preventative medicine with dietary super supplements is about covering the bases. It actually "prevents" you from the possibility of more serious health issues further down the road.
When we know our weaknesses, it becomes easier to identify where to focus our attention with super supplements that are a secondary backup to support our immune health, superhealth, and all the body systems!
