Processed and Refined Food:
Unlike our ancestors, people today generally consume large quantities of refined and processed foods. These foods can have a poor nutritional content. For example, when flour is refined folic acid, copper, iron, magnesium, calcium, chromium and manganese are lost in the manufacturing process.
We live in a polluted World:
We are exposed to a cocktail of toxins on a daily basis from our food, water and the air we breathe. Increased levels of toxins can cause toxcity and excess free radical damage. In addition to reducing our exposure, we can use supplements to help eliminate toxins and antioxidants to effectively reduce excess free radical damage.
