Don’t Forget to Take Your Supplements

Vitamins and minerals are important for everyone.

More and more doctors are treating their patients (whenever possible) with vitamin and mineral supplements in lieu of pharmaceuticals. Over the last two decades, thousands of physicians and more health practitioners have learned how to practice such nutritional pharmacology.

Complementary medicine combines the best of conventional and alternative medical care. Its basic tenet is that all the healing arts can and should complement one another. And its primary principle is to always select the safest therapies, which inevitably brings the nutritional approach to the forefront.

Vitamins, minerals, herbs, essential fatty acids and other nutritional agents can benefit even people at the peak of health who eat an excellent diet. It's possible that vitamins and minerals could even extend one's lifespan. A good example is the antioxidant group of nutrients. Antioxidants have been consistently proven to protect the body from damage by free radicals—those destructive electrons that have been implicated in cancer and heart disease as well as in accelerating the natural aging process. Even a person who eats the best possible food is not living in a perfect environment. Moreover, air pollution, tobacco smoke and other environmental toxins assault our bodies daily. Consequently, a person can maintain good health longer by taking effective doses of such antioxidants as vitamins A, C and E, plus selenium, glutathione, Co-enzyme Q10 and bioflavonoid.
