Our growing need for lifelong food micro-supplements?
Why?

With violence, AIDS, falling fertility and birth-rate, populations are graying i.e. aging.
So we need to optimise our brains and health in order to grow old, fit and independent, and die healthy. Society needs bright, industrious, young and senior citizens.


Why not just wait for the onset of disease and then let modern medicine fix it?

Most can’t afford that, the high-tech medicines and surgery for the degenerative diseases of old age such as diseases of heart, circulation, joints, spine, cancer, especially since heart disease kills half of us.
While our last decades are blighted by semi-blindness(from diabetes), dementia (half the old), depression, arthritis, and fractured spine and hips, no modern drugs can reverse these diseases.


What is the solution? 

All these common diseases are largely preventable if natural metabolic prevention is taken permanently from youth such as:
>> exercise
>> sensible sleep
>> slim eating habits
>> no smoking and
>> little alcohol


However, these alone don’t provide the keys to healthy aging.

What supplements can help?

Each of the following reduce all mortality by about 20 - 40%, no modern drug does that:
>> fish oil - a strong (co)vitamin-mineral-biological mix,
>> an appropriate hormone balance with, for example, plant-based metformin, human melotonin, testosterone and estrogen
.

Why not just buy the range of pills (nutrients and plant hormones) at the health shop?

No one wants to take handfuls of haphazard pills daily! The secret is in balance.
So after 2 years of development, The HealthSpan LIFE! Research Foundation has launched the new Life Health Kit, registered with the Medicines Control Council in accordance with its Regulations.

The new Life Health Kit contains the essential balance to reduce aging, as follows:
>> essential omega3 fish oil capsules
>> all-in-one powder of Life Health Blends flavoured drink (it’s not a protein or carbo mix, but the often-deficient micronutrients)
>> 13 vitamins
>> 10 essential minerals
>> 7 herbs and
>> 11 biologicals
Each ingredient validated by good medical evidence. Not every useful herb and biological is in the blend, these can be added on request and remember trials do not show that plant hormone alternatives are as broadly effective, or as safe as appropriate long-proven physiological human hormone replacement.

Is supplementing vitamin C beneficial?


A new Cochrane review says: Vitamin C and the common cold.?. don’t hold your
breath! Source

The answer is that, as always, the methods of such negative studies on vitamin C are crucial. There are very few conditions where there is just one cause / risk factor; and thus very few conditions e.g. scurvy where an isolated drug or micro-nutrient can make much difference alone - so taking just vit C alone for anything, except scurvy, is only moderately successful.

BUT as in the original common cold studies in the UK, Prof Linus Pauling pointed out that there were indeed significant reductions in duration and severity of the common cold even with relatively low doses of vit C.

Vit C usually helps greatly when combining a good multivitamin / mineral with Vitamin C orally to tolerance i.e. until diarrhoea starts, which in my case (with pneumonia) was 4 tsp (20 grams) of vit C every 2 hours. That’s when I turned the corner (within 6 hours) and could start reducing the dose. Vit C reduces the duration and severity as well as the incidence of infections by one-third which is a major benefit. The acute dose scale must be in terms of many grams of vitamin C a day (to tolerance), not just 0.2 grams upwards.

In most diseases, multiple therapies are far better than a single agent - be it beri-beri (usually multiple vit B deficiencies), or AIDS, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, heart failure, Alzheimer’s, pneumonia etc.

For example, vitamin C, (the building block of antioxidants, collagen, cholesterol, steroids, immunity, healing, mood, circulation) is highly beneficial in preventing / improving osteoporosis, depression, infection, cancer control etc.
