The following information is from a brochure produced by Youngevity®: 90 for Life:
For optimal health we need:
- 60 minerals
- 16 vitamins
- 12 amino acids
- 2-3 EFAs
Many major diseases have been eliminated in the livestock industry years ago by simple inexpensive nutritional supplementation.
According to U.S. Senate Document #264, our farmlands have been depleted of essential minerals. This document dates back to 1936.
There is no such thing as “Eating Right”. If the minerals aren’t in the soil where the food is grown, they are not in our foods.
Our bodies need no less than 90 essential nutrients, and there are as many as 10 deficiency diseases that can result for each nutrient that is missing for any length of time. This is a total of up to 900 diseases that can be prevented with proper nutrition.
