Third Secret – iv vitamin therapy long island

The constant need for vitamin-rich food in your diet is an oft-told tale, and one which I shall not repeat here, since it is covered fully in other articles. Yet there are two facts about iv vitamin therapy long island which you may not know, and which deserve to be included here. The first little-known fact about vitamins is that proteins and vitamins work together. The chemical agents called enzymes, that do the greatest part of the digestive work for your body, are all made of protein (at least those which have been analyzed successfully so far). Certain of these protein enzymes actually take part in your body’s use of its vitamins, while certain vitamins affect the body’s production of protein enzymes-a sort of ‘mutual aid society.’ In other words, you can’t expect the vitamins in your food (or the vitamin supplement you take) to give you all the benefits you expect from them, unless you also provide your body with ample quantities of protein foods each day.

Nutritional science has learned that successful vitamin therapy depends upon the presence of adequate high-proteins in the diet. Some biochemists even go so far as to declare that iacin (an important member of the vitamin B-complex group) is actually formed from an amino acid (protein) in the first lace. Thus, you learn that your vitamin needs should always begin with a high-protein diet. Vegetables, fruits and grains should have been grown on mineral-rich soil, for it must be remembered that foods grown in mineral deficient soil may also be poor in vitamins. Even the trace minerals have a direct effect on the vitamin content of a crop. For example, plants deficient in boron will also contain little vitamin C. Only when the good earth is mineral-rich can it produce food plants containing all the nutrients vital to the health of the men and animals that feed on them. Much of the meat and poultry that should be a rich source of the various vitamins in the B-complex group, riboflavin especially, in reality contain inadequately varied amounts of these food elements, because the animals and fowls were fed on plants and grains which, in turn, were mineral-starved from being grown on depleted soils.

Fruits and vegetables may appear fresh and green in the market, yet be grossly lacking in vitamins, and minerals as well. Nearly half of all farm lands and truck gardens are occupied by tenant farmers who are far more interested in immediate profits than they are in improving the landlords’ soil, or in sending to market foods containing all the minerals and vitamins you and I need for maximum health. Therefore, unless you grow your own fruits and vegetables on organically, non-chemically fertilized soil-or can purchase them from farms and gardens containing carefully enriched soil to your certain knowledge-there is every possibility you are not obtaining in your food all the vitamins and minerals needed to keep you looking and feeling young. It is easy to say ‘Get your daily vitamins in your foods.’ The realistic fact is that our foods just do not supply all the vitamins (and minerals) that we should have.

We are living in an atomic age. Our defense program is geared to high explosives, our production lines are miracles of speed. And our food has ‘gone modern’ to keep pace. It is now being shot out of cannons, super-refined and shaped and coated with highly intriguing artificial preparations. Some of the products have been so highly transformed they are hard to recognize as food. The case against nutritionally poor ‘refined’ food-(which has very unrefined manners once it is inside your body)-is growing daily. Commercial corn meal is one case in point. By the time it reaches your kitchen, it has been largely deprived of its natural vitamin and mineral food values. It has been proved that chickens fed on such refined corn meal die in less than fifty days. When it has been robbed of its natural vitamins and minerals, food is no longer ‘food’ in the true sense of the word. I wish I could tell you to eat your meat, eggs, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and seed cereals with every assurance that your body would be supplied with sufficient vitamins to keep it healthily youthful-and leave the subject at that. But I cannot. We who buy our food at the market, or who eat most of our meals away from home, are at the mercy of today’s mineral-starved, eroded, artificially fertilized, overcultivated soilsto say nothing of all the vitamin-ignorant cooks.
