Vitamin B12, Cobalt

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient in the B-complex of water soluble vitamins.

This nutrient must be consumed through animal foods, to ensure adequate intake. Supplements are recommended, due to lack of cobalt in the bio-system!!  B12 is the most complex of all the vitamins and has an awesome power in human health. It is needed for normal energy metabolism in all cells of the body, including amino acid and fatty acid metabolism. B12 is also known as “cobalamin” and is important in vital physiological  processes as brain functioning, and nervous system health; production of myelin sheath to insulate the nerve fibers. Also formation of red blood cells and bone marrow, including DNA regulation and synthesis. It is produced by certain colon bacteria. B12 is needed as a minium Daily Recommended Intake {DRI} of 2 to 7 micro grams per day. B12 is safe at higher doses when used to prevent poisoning from arsenic.

The body can store up to 3-5 years worth of B12 because the Liver recycles B12. Deficiency does not show up for years until the reserves in the Liver are used up, due to lack of intake.When testing the blood the normal range is 180 to 900ng/L, however B12 less than 500 pico gram may produce deficiency. To ensure optimal health of your brain and nervous system, blood testing is important! Lack of B12 increases the level of homocyteine and decreases the synthesis of DNA!! The deficiency also may cause macrocytic anemia, peripheral neuropathy, neurological disorders, ie, cognitive decline, loss of mobility and balance.

Long standing deficiency may be irreversible!! Low stomach acid may cause a deficiency of B12 , for the acid is needed to break the bond that B12 has on the proteins in food. The Elderly tend to have low stomach acid. Also Celiac disease my impair absorption of B12 in the ileum of the small intestine. Bad bacteria over growth can cause mal-absorption of B12, parasitic infection from Giardiasis may cause deficiency. Also genetic factor may cause deficiency, as does excessive alcohol intake!!

Sources of B12: Clams,organ meats especially liver, beef, turkey, fish, eggs, mackerel, and crab meat. - i am BUILT. i am A1.

Vitamin E, Fat Anti Oxidant

Vitamin E exists in eight forms, however, the Liver only uses d-alpha-tocopherol, the other seven forms are removed from the body (excreted ); also the synthetic Vitamin E, dl-alpha-tocopherol is half “Left Hand” and half “Right Hand” due to the chemistry of making it synthetically. Your body can not use the ” Left Handed” version, so it is only half as effective. It makes sense to only buy the Natural “Right  Handed” Vitamin E which is d-alpha-tocopherol. Otherwise You are wasting Your money on types of Vitamin E that Your body can not use!

Vitamin E is a very powerful Anti Oxidant protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, which are, molecules that contain an unshared electron. Free radicals may cause the development of Cancers and Cardiovascular diease. The electrons are Very Energetic, forming reactive Oxygen, called ROS, “Reactive Oxygen Species”, ( as a result of converting food into energy and Free Radicals, as a by product). Anti Oxidant Vitamin E protects cells from damage by nuetralizing the energetic electrons in the Free Radicals and the Reactive Oxygen.  Once Vitamin E nuetralizes a Free Radical, it must be re-activated by Vitamin C to be able to again neutralize another Free Radical. Together Vitamin E and Vitamin C help Your body to prevent damage to Your cells.Also Vitamin E is involved with the immune system and regulation of gene expression and dilation of blood vessels, including inhibiting platelet aggregation ( clotting).

The “Recommended Dietary Allowances” RDA  for 18 year olds is 22.5 IU ( international units) this is a minium, and not for Maximum Preformance. The Upper limit is 1,500 IU. Normally 400 to 800 IU is great for the non- athlete.It should be remembered that Vitamin E inhibits platelet aggregation ( clotting ), thus antagonizes K dependent clotting factors. This may increase the risk of bleeding with the use of Warfarin ( Coumadin ).

Vitamin E is naturally found in Nuts, green Leafy Vegetables, Whole Grains, Fruits and Oils including eggs, lean meats, seafood, beans, and peas. Adding supplements that contain Vitamin E ensures You have enough for Maximum preformance.

Enzymes, Run the Gut

Enzymes are the under reported part of Your body’s system that starts at the mouth, with alpha- Amylase to start Hydrolyses of starches and complex sugars, digesting them into simple sugars like glucose.

Then later, Protease is added to digest proteins after the stomach acids start the process, into peptides then amino acids. Then Lipase is added to catalyze the hydrolysis of fats, digesting them into fatty acids.This process continues down the small intestines where Cellulase ( from fungi, bacteria and protozoa ) breaks down fiber. There are over 3000 enzymes that catalyze the many reactions in the Gut and through out the body. The Pancreas produces enzymes and stores them for later use, it is also part of the recycling system that takes the enzymes back out of the Gut into the Blood system via inhibitors that de-activate the Enzymes, to return to the Pancreas to be used again. The loss of some Enzymes happens and must be replaced by the Pancreas. This can over load the Pancreas if large meals tax the system. Therefore using supplemental Enzymes keeps the Pancreas from damage.

The major part of Enzymes job includes working with the immune system. The antigen ( foreign body ,i.e. virus, bacteria, fungus, debris ) activates the antibodies to attack the invader, grabbing it to form immune complexes, normally Macrophages are called to surround the immune complexes and neutralize them. However, if overloaded with invaders the job falls to the Enzymes to neutralize the immune complexes. Immune complexes can be found in the blood stream system and in tissue; this situation calls for the Enzymes to go into action, neutralizing the offending agent.

The Europeans have been using oral Enzyme supplements to stabilize MS ( Multiple Sclerosis ) and improve many forms of Arthritis.

Fish Oil, Omega 3

Fish Oil, Omega 3s are the KEY agent to vastly improving your Health and Wellness. Omega 3s are required to compete your cell walls, with out Omega 3s the cell is open to being invaded by viruses, bacteria, and fungus.

The ancient diet had a ratio of 4 to 1 omega 3, now it is only 20 to 1 omega 3. This is a 5 fold reduction! Omega 3s are paramount to reducing inflammation through out Your body, including the Heart, veins, and arteries. Over time Omega 3s improve blood flow and help remove blood clots, reducing the odds of Stroke and Heart attack! The two main forms are DHA ( Docosahexaenoic acid ) and EPA ( Eicosapentaenoic acid ), combined dose 2000 mg approximately. Some people find Fish Oil hard to take, there is a Plant based form, ALA ( alpha-Linolenic acid ) from Flax seed. Also Krill Oil contains Omega 3s in a different matrix, however, allergic reactions, hives, breathing problems, swelling, etc. can occur! Check to be sure no Mercury or PCBs ( polychlorinate biphenyls ) are in the supplements. Of course you can eat more fish, especially, anchovy, sardine, mackerel, herring, and trout. A High Quality Omega 3 supplement is more cost effective and safer. Also as a bonus Omega 3s improve your mood, as a report from University of Michigan Depression Center states in their Depression Tool Kit. - i am BUILT. i am A1.

Nutrition, Foundation of Healthy Life

  Nutrition is the key foundation to a healthy life. You must have the basic vitamins, minerals, herbs, and enzymes; and in the correct amounts to utilize the proteins, fats, and carbs to repair and maintain your body. The RDI/RDA Recommended Dietary Allowances are set to the lowest limits before causing disease. They are not set to Optimal Levels to maximize performance.  This is the reason that stress so easily destroys our health. Optimizing Formulas
have been developed.

Herenutrition is a partial example:

Vitamin A,7500 IU, 150% DV  (as beta-carotene)

Vitamin C, 250 mg    400%  DV

Vitamin  D, 400 IU     100%  DV

Vitamin   E, 150 IU      500%  DV

The companies that develop and Test these formulas take great pride and effort to ensure the Quality of their products.

The Industry of Nutrition is very dynamic, studying new findings including Meta research of the many thousands of published reports based on clinical trials.
