However every one of the programs list below have a focus on nutritional saturation, and there are many people who believe that we should be getting everything we need in our diet. Unfortunately, research shows that this has not been possible in developed countries, for almost a century. I believe that most people, when they understand the issue, soon realise they can benefit from supplementing on a regular basis.

So what’s all this about nutrition?

If you were to read what says, you’d know that every day, your body produces skin, muscle, and bone. It churns out rich red blood that carries nutrients and oxygen to remote outposts, and it sends nerve signals skipping along thousands of miles of brain and body pathways. It also formulates chemical messengers that shuttle from one organ to another, issuing the instructions that help sustain your life.

But to do all this, your body requires some raw materials, a point verified by the Harvard Help Guide. These include at least 20 vitamins, 60 minerals and trace elements, 12 essential amino acids, 3-4 essential fatty acids and many other dietary components that your body needs but cannot manufacture on its own. Indeed many of these nutrients are formed by the healthy microiome in your gut.

1. Vitamins and Minerals: Vitamins and minerals are often called micronutrients because your body needs only tiny amounts of them. Yet failing to get even those small quantities virtually guarantees disease. Vitamins and minerals are required for everything from building our physical bodies to blood coagulation and energy production. Most of the vitamins and all of the minerals required for optimal health are classified as essential, which means when you are lacking any one substance, it can lead to disease.

Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients—because acting in concert, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.

2. Amino Acids:  Protein is the building block of all life and is essential for the growth of cells and tissue repair. Proteins are the “workhorse” molecules of life, taking part in essentially every structure and activity of life. They are building materials for living cells, appearing in the structures inside the cell and within the cell membrane. They carry oxygen, they build tissue, they copy DNA for the next generation – they do all the work in any organism.

Our bodies are built from proteins that are constructed with eight basic building blocks called essential amino acids and twelve other amino acids. While many of the proteins are structural proteins, many are regulatory proteins called enzymes. Proteins can do just about everything required to produce an organism. To build a protein we need to build a long chain of amino acids. There are 20 different types of amino acids, so there are lots of different protein chains we can build.

These 20 amino acids combine in different ways to make up the 100,000 or so different proteins in the human body. Some of these proteins are in solution in the blood and other fluids of the body, and some are in solid form as the framework of tissue, bone and hair. Shipman, et al. suggests that they make up about 75% of the dry weight of our bodies.

3. Antioxidants:  Every day our bodies are bombarded with pollution, pesticides and numerous other toxins, and this creates many of the destructive free radicals in our bodies. Antioxidants are important because they are our only defense against free-radical damage.

The body’s trillion or so cells face formidable threats, from lack of food to infection with a virus. Another constant threat comes from nasty chemicals called free radicals. They are capable of damaging cells and genetic material. The body generates free radicals as the inevitable byproducts of turning food into energy. Others are in the food you eat and the air you breathe. Some are generated by sunlight’s action on the skin and eyes.

Free radicals come in many shapes, sizes, and chemical configurations, but we aren’t defenceless against them. The body, long used to this relentless attack, makes scads of molecules that quench free radicals as surely as water douses fire. We also extract free-radical fighters from food and there are hundreds, probably thousands, of different substances that can act as antioxidants.. These defenders are often lumped together as “antioxidants.” They work by generously giving electrons to free radicals without turning into electron-scavenging substances themselves.

4. Essential Fatty Acids:  These are fats necessary within the human body. Though you’ve probably often heard the word “fats” and associated it with bad health, there are some essential fatty acids that are necessary for your survival. Without them, you could cause serious damage to different systems within the body. The human body can manufacture most of the fats it needs, including cholesterol which the liver and other tissues can manufacture from saturated fats, and some fatty acids. Omega-3 and omega-6 are the essential fatty acids, or the good fats, that are essential for optimal cellular health.

They are called “essential” fats for good reason. The human body needs them for many functions, from building healthy cells to maintaining brain and nerve function. Our bodies can’t produce them. The only source is food. There’s also growing evidence that they help lower the risk of heart disease. Some studies suggest these fats may also protect against type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and age-related brain decline.

It has been estimated that the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in the diet of early humans was 1:1, but the ratio in the typical Western diet is now almost 10:1 due to increased use of vegetable oils rich in LA as well as reduced fish consumption. Because of this out-of-preportion ratio, a large body of scientific research suggests that increasing the relative abundance of dietary omega-3 fatty acids may have a number of health benefits.

5. Anti-inflammatory Compounds: Chronic inflammation has been recently associated with almost every major detrimental process in human health. Anti-inflammatory compounds are our only protection and line of defence. Unfortunately, anti-inflammatory prescription medications have some of the worst side effects for prescription drugs, so we recommend you ask us about the natural alternatives that can help your body function optimally.

Here are some Savvy Health Programs

Your body can start to heal once you stop doing what’s causing the problem in the first place; if you stop consuming the food that contributed to the blockages in your arteries or overloading your liver and kidneys, your body will have a better chance of rebooting and recovering.
