The Health Concept of Cellular Nutrition‏

As you study the medical literature, you begin to realize that there are several different kinds of free radicals that are found in various parts of the body. When you study vitamin E, which is probably the best antioxidant within the cell wall, you will generally see a definite health benefit from taking this nutrient. However, when you see a study that combines vitamin C with vitamin E, you will usually discover that the participants receive even a better health benefit. It becomes very obvious that you want to take a variety of antioxidants that will work in various parts of the body and against different free radicals. It also becomes obvious that these antioxidants need the supporting minerals and B cofactors to perform at their optimal level.

When you provide all of these nutrients to the cells at their optimal levels via supplementation, the cell can decide what it needs and does not need. Over time (usually 6 to 12 months), the body is able to totally replace any deficiencies and bring all the other supporting nutrients up to optimal levels. This will not only optimize the body’s natural antioxidant defense system, but it will also create the synergy that is so critical in preventing oxidative stress.
