Vital substances: the underestimated illness fighters

For a long time, they led a shadowy existence in conventional medicine. Now it is getting clearer and clearer: vital substances play a decisive role in the prevention and treatment of diseases. In the meantime, numerous studies have proven the effectiveness of vital substances in a wide variety of treatments. However, this knowledge has not yet arrived at many doctors and pharmacists. Even when training at universities, the transfer of knowledge in the field of vital substances is still strongly expandable. I am a doctor myself and can confirm this from my own experience.

Before we go deeper: ConcreteYou will find recommendations on vital substances at the end of the article.

What are nutrients? In general, it includes vitamins, minerals, trace elements and fatty and amino acids. So essential ingredients of the diet. The problem: Only very few of us take enough of it.

Medical significance of vital substances

And what makes vitamins, minerals & so indispensable for your health? Vital substances are needed by the cells in sufficient quantity, so that the metabolism works optimally. The focus is on the mitochondria. These are the powerhouses of cells, which play a fundamental role in the performance of body and mind. A high susceptibility to stress, fatigue or burnout, but also a high susceptibility to disease are associated with, for example, weak mitochondria.

Vital substances set right here: By correcting metabolic disorders and deficiencies they counteract typical causes of disease.

But even in case of illness they have demonstrable effects, for example:

  • Improving the effects of classic drugs
  • Relieving the side effects of medication

Here is an overview of typical applications of vital substances:

  • Iron for the treatment of anemia
  • Calcium in osteoporosis
  • Zinc against susceptibility to infection
  • B vitamins in neuropathies
  • Niacin for the treatment of high blood lipid levels
  • Folic acid during pregnancy
  • Magnesium for cramps and migraine
  • Coenzyme Q10 and omega-3 fatty acids for high blood pressure
  • Vitamin D and B12 in depression
  • Vitamin C for rheumatoid arthritis

As you can see, the accompanying use of vital substances is possible in many diseases. Since the nutrient balance is closely related to most metabolic diseases, optimal care is crucial. The need, however, varies from person to person. Decisive factors include age, gender, lifestyle and environmental factors. For example, a smoker needs three times the amount of vitamin C compared to a non-smoker.

The following factors increase the vital substance requirement:

  • Diseases
  • Smoke
  • alcohol consumption
  • stress
  • Exposure to environmental toxins
  • pregnancy
  • coffee consumption
  • sports activity

In order to counteract these stresses, a sufficient supply of vital substances is crucial. Therefore, the DGE (German Society of Nutrition) recommends at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily to cover the daily requirement of vital substances. In practice, however, the situation is different. According to the DGE, Germans eat on average just two of the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Which products are recommended, which are not?

So what to do? Eat as balanced and healthy as possible, that's all. If you can not reliably cover your daily requirement of vital substances with the help of nutrition, it is advisable to take a natural dietary supplement. In the modern vital substance therapy today you prefer a moderately dosed, natural nutrient mixture. There are several good products here, I recommend to cover the daily needs of vital substances for years a certainHealth juice, The covers with a spoon per day all important vital substances. That's enough for a bottle for around 50 days. And above all, this juice was also scientifically tested.

Not recommended and even potentially harmful on the other hand are artificial vital substances, such as those offered in pill form or as effervescent tablets. You should also be wary of foreign products. According to the consumer organization, these often contain impurities or unauthorized substances that are not declared on the packaging.
