Imagine my surprise, and disappointment, when new research proved that subjects that regularly take vitamins, minerals and a host of other herbs are still dying at the same rate as the general population. The good news is that for those individuals trying to live a healthy life style by including a daily regimen of vitamins and minerals seem to be healthier for their given age. So what does that really mean? If you happen to be 50 years of age and you are taking the path of trying to lead a healthier lifestyle by including a daily regimen of vitamins and minerals, more than likely you are optimizing your body’s metabolic state for a healthy 50 year old. This is assuming that you are taking very good quality vitamins and minerals and not one of the common multi-vitamin mineral tablets that can be found on the shelves of your local grocery. If you fit into this later category, possibly taking one of the common one a day tablet forms of vitamin, there is a very slim chance that your body is actually absorbing all of the nutrients that you really need from the single tablet that you are taking. Many of these types of tablets are simply packed too tightly for your body to be able to break down the capsule before it as passed through your body and on its way to being fish food. Then there is the question of the quality controls that are used during the processing and manufacturing of these vitamins and minerals.

Thanks to a friend, that I will be forever indebted to, he gave me some products to try that have improved the quality of my life and without doubt added an unknown number of years to my life. (Thanks Rex!)

Please keep in mind to do him real justice I would need to write a book, so I will do my best to cover the highest of the highlights.
