Three Important Nutrients - Vitamin E, Selenium, and Sodium and Potassium ? for good health
There is has been a lot of controversy about vitamin E lately. In the news last month, the news media was pushing a story that "Vitamin E can cause you to die." This story came about from a study that was made by certain researchers. In the alternative medicine group, they determined that this study was flawed. Most of the people in the study were already sick with serious illnesses.
Taking a dose of Vitamin E of 400 to 800 IU is appropriate. Higher doses can be taken for particular diseases - intestine disease, liver disease, pancreas disease, and surgical removal of stomach, but - for the average person this dose is enough.
The type of Vitamin E you should take is:
d-alpha tocopherol - this is the nature Vitamin E.
When buying Vitamin E get the Vitamin that contains the family of Natural Vitamin E for better health such as, d-alpha tocopherol succinate, gamma, delta and beta. Avoid using the synthetic Vitamin E. The synthetic is called, dl-alpha tocopherol.
The synthetic type is not good for you and can possible cause some harm.
Vitamin E is found in various foods including vegetable oils (corn, cottonseed, soybean, safflower - it isn't recommended that you use these oils.) Wheat germ, whole-grain cereals, and green leafy vegetables are good sources of Vitamin E. Cooking and storage may destroy some of the vitamin E in foods.
Selenium Here's another important nutrient - Selenium. Researchers at the University of Arizona have done clinical trials that show those who had more selenium in their blood had lower incidence of colorectal tumors. Selenium has also been found to be effective in keeping the prostrate health. Selenium is one of the best antioxidants and should be included in your daily supplements.
The recommended daily dose for, Women is 50-55 mcg Men is 65-70 mcg. Sodium and Potassium I have mentioned in the past, that if you want to avoid being sick now or in the future, you need to work towards an Alkaline Body. This is such important concept that I want to tell you again. Eating fruits and vegetables is critical in keeping your body alkaline.
And, if you drink water it does not make sense to drink plain water. If you're going to drink water why not drink alkaline water, and give yourself two important minerals that make your body alkaline - ionic sodium and ionic potassium. If you use a product call ALKALIFE, you can add these minerals into your water.
These minerals help to neutralize acid in your body. In doing so, it moves your body towards alkalinity. An acid body is destructive to body tissue, and to organ function. It attracts parasites, bacteria, fungus, and all sorts of pathogen to live and multiply inside you.
By adding 2 drops of Alkalife into water, you change the water from a neutral pH of 7.0 to an alkaline drink of 8.0. This is the best gift you can give yourself

To Supplement or Not to Supplement; That is the Question
Some fitness adherents are supplement crazy and spend money like a Vegas drunk with a big roll trying to impress girls he barely knows. I know lots of folks who admit to spending hundreds of bucks each month on the newest, latest dietary or supplement craze. A subtler shade of this same affliction is the cutting-edge Elite who also purchase lots of supplements and spend lots of disposable income on nutritional supplements of some type or another, the newer the better for this crew. Both ends of the fitness feeding chain are seduced by supplements that promise everything and deliver very little. There is something intrinsic and rooted deep in the human psyche that eternally searches for a miracle pill, potion, compound, substance or procedure that will do one of three things: make you lean, make you muscular and make you look and feel decades younger than your actual chronologic age.
Glyconutrients For You?
Simply stated, the Greek word glyco refers to "sweet." Hence, a glyconutrient is a biochemical that contains a sugar molecule.

To supplement or not to supplement ? that is the question on more bodybuilder's lips than ever before. Are they safe? What works and what doesn't?
Know Your Bodybuilding Supplement - L-Lysine
Lysine is an essential amino acid therefore it must be obtained from the diet as the body cannot produce its own. It is an essential building block for all protein in the body and can be found in animal meats, fish, dairy products, legumes and brewer's yeast. It performs many useful functions in the body and has proved to be especially useful in treating herpes and cold sores. Lysine also increases the absorption of calcium so it may help to prevent and treat osteoporosis.
Why Do Liquid Form Nutritional Supplements Have Much Greater Bodily Absorption Than Pills?
Did you know that when you take vitamins and minerals in the traditional tablet or capsule form your body only assimilates 10 to 12% of the nutrients, and that figure drops to 3 to 5% after 35-40 years of age? Liquid (also known as colloidal) vitamin form provides the highest possible assimilation of nutrients into the body. Colloidal minerals and vitamin particles are over 7000 times smaller than a human cell. Approximately 98% of liquid form supplements ingested can be used by the body within 15 to 30 minutes. This percentage is far superior to the 3 to 10% assimilation of traditional pill and capsule supplements and means that you would have to take 10 to 20 multi-vitamin pills every day to have comparable assimilation. That would be like swallowing one or two handfuls of those rock hard pills every morning which is definitely a tall order, especially for older people, children and people who hate taking vitamin pills--well, that covers just about everybody. Not to mention how expensive it would be to buy all of those pills!
I Have a Headache!
Actually, my headache is not the result of just thinking ? it's due more to what I've been thinking about. I can normally go for months and months and months without any perceptible twinge of intracranial discomfort. No problems at all.

But apart from that, life is good and the old gray matter just keeps cruising along in the smiley mode.
