Proper Nutrition is Fundamental as a First Step in Optimizing Your Health: Immunocal

Proper nutrition is fundamental to optimizing your health. By eating the right foods, you help supply your body with the proper elements that are needed to ensure superior health. When your body is in optimal health, it is better able to repair parts that are damaged from sickness, injury or disease. However, in our modern-day world "just eating right" may not be sufficient.

Modern agriculture has supplied us with an unprecedented abundance of food. Ironically, this abundance and the underlying agricultural intensification has created a new set of problems; poor soil quality. Furthermore, long-haul transportation and crop-breeding practices are all believed to be contributing to the drop in vitamins and minerals found in fruits and vegetables.

Additionally, intense processing and sterilization of foods renders many of their healthy nutrients and minerals biologically inactive. For example, while the pasteurization of milk enables us to kill many pathogens that would make us very sick, it also denatures and even destroys many of the valuable nutrients that our bodies need to survive. The end result is that we need to replace the components that have been lost so that we can again, function at optimum levels.

Cutting-edge research from leading scientists has brought us new ways to recover many of these nutrients. By taking advantage of modern-day patented pharmaceutical-grade supplements, your body can finally regain many of the nutrients that are needed to ensure the best possible physical condition, to repair parts that are damaged and to slow down the aging process.

I encourage you to research nutritional supplementation as one way to improve health and provide missing elements that our modern-day diets can no longer provide.
