Minerals, Amino Acids and Herbs – How do they fit into my health and healing?

Originally aired on 03-15-2018

In this show we will discuss what they are and how they are used in the body. Why do we need to supplement (or do we)? When would I need them most? What categories are there and what are safe doses? When can I take more to help with a specific purpose (athletics, disease, healing etc.) and more.

NUTRITION – THE PLANTS DON’T HAVE WHAT THEY USED TO!

  • “A Kushi Institute analysis of nutrient data from 1975 to 1997 found that average calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent; iron levels 37 percent; vitamin A levels 21 percent, and vitamin C levels 30 percent. A similar study of British nutrient data from 1930 to 1980, published in the British Food Journal, found that in 20 vegetables the average calcium content had declined 19 percent; iron 22 percent; and potassium 14 percent. Yet another study concluded that one would have to eat eight oranges today to derive the same amount of Vitamin A as our grandparents would have gotten from one.” Quoted from https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss/
