Foods & Nutrients We Require Daily!
Few people seem to approach their nutrition program from a foundational [to the cell] basic-whole picture-everything needed, but taking nothing which is not needed, perspective.
Think of it as the recipe it is and know you want all the ingredients in the right balance!
I recommend to others, that they do too! It just works better.
I want no unnecessary holes in the program and want no excessive amounts of unneeded Vitamins or out of balance minerals—like too much calcium in the wrong form; or too much B1, B2 and B12, but not enough Biotin, Folic Acid or B6 for example. I absolutely want enough of the ANTI-INFLAMMATORY Omega-3 fatty acids from plants and not too much of the PRO-INFLAMMATORY Omega-6 fats, as people so commonly err in! I believe in the magnificence of the 100’s of nutrients per plant; and that God knew better than I how much beta-carotene and lutein was needed without forgetting about the indole-3 carbinols, mineral balance, digestive enzymes, or misunderstanding the Phytates (magically cancer preventive), and including the fiber. And I want it all to come first from whole foods, and only to supplement where needed after that.
For some reason, an important fact that I intuited a long, long time ago, we would do better to focus on the foods primarily, not the supplements. It started with the introduction to how awful Leukemia was. My awakening to all this then progressed to “It needs to be whole foods, not isolated vitamins”, once I discovered the Juice Plus+™ whole food: fruit, vegetable, and berry supplements. From that point, as a doctoral student in “Holistic Nutrition”, it was cemented by the works of people like Paul Pitchford, T. Colin Campbell’s (PhD.) research, Michael Pollan’s, Dr. Bernard Jensen, and Udo Erasmus, PhD. With the Juice Plus+™ body of now 38 studies, the Nutrition and Physical Degeneration book by Weston A. price D.D.S. and a great deal of basic research on point for my doctoral dissertation; the road sign for nutritional health was in bright blinking lights!
“OH MY! It is from WHOLE FOODS that we obtain our nutrient needs in the right balance!!!”
Parts are parts, and the whole is better!
By now, roughly 15 years since I read the first 3 published studies completed on the Juice Plus+™ encapsulated produce powders, their body of research added to the vast research I hold in my personal files as evidence, is just really impressive. Armed with those facts…we proceed.…
