Food Supplements for High Frequency and Vibrant Health
As you may know, I am not a real fan of supplementation. It is my point of view that we should be getting our nutrition from our foods, the way nature designed for us.
That said, many foods that are available today are devoid or depleted of nutrition, due to agricultural practices, poor water sources, and massive soil mineral depletion. Even organic certification does not guarantee that the foods are as nutritious as they should be.
For this reason, there are just a few supplements that I feel are worth considering if you are a raw food enthusiast, vegan, vegetarian, or recovering from an illness; or if you just know that you are not eating as well as your body needs you to. Though no supplements can do it alone, these few provide a wonderful support for shifting into a healthy diet and lifestyle. Michael and I have used these supplements personally, and can recommend each of them from our own experience.
Astaxanthin is considered by some experts to be one of the most beneficial anti-oxidant supplements available. It’s antioxidant power is 550 times stronger than Vitamin E, and 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C! Astaxanthin is so regenerative for human use, that is currently used as a general supplement for counteracting the effects of aging; for eye health; for heart health; and even for increasing athletic performance. (Michael and I both take this supplement daily to enhance our journey through the ascension process, as we grow older). I would suggest it to almost everyone, especially if they are noticing the effects of aging, or suffering from any degenerative condition.
CoQ10 (aka Ubiquinol)
This nutrient is essential to maintaining cellular level energy. As we grow older, our blood levels of ubiquinol decline, and we experience this as aging at a cellular level. According to Dr. Mercola’s website, people younger than 25 should only use regular CoQ10 (Ubiquinone) because their bodies have been shown to absorb it better. Older people should use Ubiquinol—the form that our bodies produce. This nutrient is a key factor in heart and cardiovascular health; protection from free radical damage; maintaining a sharp mind and brain power as we grow older; maintaining a strong immune system; and keeping blood pressure in a healthy range.
Iodine in its atomic form, this supplement nourishes the thyroid gland to produce sufficient amounts of T3 and T4. It is highly absorbable in its nascent form, and helps regenerate the thyroid and protect it from radiation damage. Many people experience a whole new emotional reality once they get enough of this essential mineral. It boosts energy levels naturally, and helps provide the building blocks for a healthy thyroid and hormone production.
The world’s richest source of Omega 3 fatty acids, Krill oil is superior to regular fish oils because it can be harvested more sustainably; and it is relatively free of mercury and other toxins that plague fish oils. The Omega 3 provided in Krill oil is also said to be more bioavailable than the type provided by fish oils. Krill oil helps to normalize blood sugar levels, supports a healthy brain and nervous system, supports healthy joints, supports heart and cardiovascular health, promotes balanced blood cholesterol, and helps maintain a strong immune system. It is also helpful for PMS and menopausal symptoms, and helps balance emotional energy and mood swings.
Brazil Live Coral Calcium Supplement
Nearly every American is deficient in this mineral, and its partners, sodium and magnesium. The average American diet is short of necessary daily calcium requirements by 40%. Many people believe that they have too much calcium in their blood, when they begin to develop hardening of tissues or calcium deposits in joints and on bones. In fact the opposite is true; when calcium begins to build in places where it does not belong, it is a prime indicator that we are depleted in calcium, and in the minerals that keep it in solution in our bodies; the sodium and magnesium. Sufficient calcium levels are critical for bone health, muscle function, lung health, periodontal health, cardiovascular health, mood balancing, and much more. This is a natural, absorbable, and sustainably harvested product that can fulfill calcium needs in a balanced way–good for humans and good for the environment.
Mt. Capra Mineral Whey
One of the best sources for easily absorbable minerals available, this is a sustainably produced powdered mineral whey. This highly alkalinizing supplement balances electrolytes in the blood, and provides over 20 minerals that are highly bio-available. Digestion nearly always improves with this supplement; as well as chronic knee and lower back pain. Anyone healing a degenerative condition will benefit greatly by taking this, as it is one of the finest acid neutralizers around.
