confirming that many people suffer from serious nutritional deficiencies. We normally think of people with nutritional deficiencies as living in poor, Third World countries. But in fact, the problem is far more widespread and complicated than that. Ironically, many of the obese people living in America are suffering from one form of nutritional deficiency or another.

So a lack of good nutrition is not just the province of the poor anymore. Many wealthy people suffer from abysmal diets that put their health at great risk, because food companies care more about profit than health. Americans have one of the poorest diets in the developed world. But the good news is that diets in America are slowly changing for the better. More and more people are increasing their intake of fruits and vegetables and decreasing their intake of fried, fatty junk foods.

That is why more and more people are taking dietary health supplements everyday. Many diets are deficient in some nutrients, and we just can’t get all the nutrition that we really need from our diet alone. Vitamin and antioxidant supplements are becoming crucial for any serious health or antiaging regime.in fact, health supplements are the wave of the future.

An exploding mountain of scientific evidence is making it abundantly clear that we can prevent and cure disease and maintain our youthful energy and vigor by supplementing with certain important nutrients. We can now extend our youthful life span by up to 50% through proper lifestyle modifications and nutritional supplementation. A large portion of this increase in lifespan is due to the prevention of disease.

Hormones such as testosterone, growth hormone and DHEA can give us the youthful energy we had in our 20’s. Pregnenolone can restore our memory as it is one of the most powerful memory enhancers in the world, and helps grow dendrites in the brain. Dendrites help neurons form very complex connections with greater intelligence.

It is estimated that as many as 75% of all Americans use dietary supplements to increase the quality of their diets. This is up from 50% from 15 years ago, an astounding increase. In 1994,  Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). This act built a foundation for labeling and assuring the safety of dietary supplements.

However, keep in mind that the government is always trying to win control over your rights to determine what you put in your own body, and what you can eat in terms of health and other dietary supplements. Don’t let the government have too much control over you; it is one of the most dangerous things that can happen to a country. It is happening in the US now. This is one of lowest and most dangerous times in US history. We may be witnessing the decline of the American Empire.

The range of dietary supplements now available to you and your family is exploding. New supplements are coming on the market almost everyday. These supplements can help with everything from joints and bones to your brain and heart. There is virtually nothing that a dietary supplement cannot help.

Most supplements aid the body with their antioxidant abilities. That means they slow the oxidative process, protecting the body from damage caused by cell damaging molecules called “free radicals.” Free radicals are molecules that have become unstable, losing an electron. Therefore, they travel through your body stealing electrons from healthy cells. This causes great damage to cells of your body.

Antioxidants can reduce the risk of getting most diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, diabetes and arthritis. Antioxidants also help to reduce inflammation in your body, which is another theory as to why we age. Fruits and vegetables, as well as beans and legumes are high in antioxidants.
