Facts About Full Spectrum
Your body requires a number of different nutrients each day to
support its functions and activities. A Full Spectrum of nutrients include vitamins, trace
and major minerals and amino acids. It is important that your body receive these nutrients
in the correct ratios and combinations, as fragmenting your nutrition by only taking
certain nutrients can lead to overdoses or imbalances.
An important aspect of Full Spectrum Nutrition includes organic trace and major
minerals. These colloidal plant-derived minerals contribute to thousands of chemical
activities in the body and exercise a positive effect on other nutrients such as vitamins.
In this way the body is able to retain these water-soluble nutrients for a much longer
period of time before naturally excreting them.
In addition to these trace and major minerals, Full Spectrum Nutrition contains a
balance of vitamins, amino acids and Phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are natural compounds
present in fresh fruits and vegetables that have been shown in clinical studies to support
the bodys immune system and help protect against cellular oxidative damage from free
radical formation. Phytonutrients are proving to be some of the most powerful antioxidants
At a time in our lives when it is almost impossible to receive all the nutrients you
need each day through a normal healthy diet, supplementation becomes critical. Without
supplementation, the foods we eat may be leaving us with nutrient deficiencies
which can eventually lead to illness.
