For thousands of years, humans have been accustomed to a selection of natural foods that have provided us with all the essential nutrients. Todays diet is vastly different to that of our ancestors, and one of the most widespread nutritional deficiencies is of essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs are the building blocks of the membranes in our cells. Most of these EFAs can be synthesized by our bodies, but the two that have to be supplemented through diet are Omega 3 and Omega 6. The body functions best when these are in a balance ration of 1:1, but because our modern diet is so high in Omega 6s, a typical ration is around 25:1. Large quantities of Omega 3 are therefore necessary to redress this balance.Flaxseed oil is the richest source of Omega 3 fatty acids yet found anywhere in the world. It also has a high Lignan content. Lignan is a gentle plant hormone that is the key to estrogenic balance in the body. Omega-3 oils have been shown to help reduce heart disease, strokes, and inflammatory diseases, and are linked to many other positive health results. Nearly every system in the body can benefit from flax seed oil's natural properties, including the cardiovascular system, immune system, circulatory system, reproductive system, nervous system, as well as joints. It also contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fiber, protein, and zinc.
If you only wish to take one vitamin then Nutrivital Vitamin C with Bioflavanoids is the one! Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system and to support the body's defense against infection. Vitamin C is made by almost every other mammal except humans. Because it is a water soluble vitamin, Vitamin C cannot be stored in the body long term, and is flushed out with our body’s waste on a regular basis, therefore the vitamin C we gain from our foods is very quickly lost and it is important to maintain a good supplementation of Vitamin C to ensure we have the amount we need. It is especially important if we are stressed and need our immune systems boosting. It is also important for the formation of collagen in skin, bones, cartilage and muscles. It neutralises the free radicals, which speed up the aging process. It can reduce cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. Bioflavonoids are organic plant pigments that occur naturally with Vitamin C - the bioflavonoids increase Vitamin C bioavailability and absorption and are particularly important in maintaining good condition of blood vessels. Bioflavonoids also have excellent anti-inflammatory properties.
