You can never know how much nutritional value a ready-made meal has compared to a carefully prepared home-made equivalent. That’s why supplementation can be so important.
Do you feel your word/home environment may be affected by chemicals/fumes/dust?
These are all irritants that enter our body by ingestion, inhalation or through the skin. They can built up and cause various reactions, affecting our well-being. A good example would be the connection between house dust and hay fever. Additional antioxidant intake may help combat these environmental influences.
Do you catch colds/flu/bugs easily?
Your body’s fighting force may be malfunctioning due to poorly absorbed nutrients. By topping-up with immune system support, you may be in better position to fight infection.
Do you exercise infrequently/not all?
Too little exercise allows the body to become sluggish, thereby allowing toxins to become lodged in fatty tissue. Certain herbs and nutrients are especially good at accelerating the body’s natural excretion of toxins and wastes.
Do you consume more that the average amount of alcohol daily?
Alcohol (which is just fermented sugar) is rapidly absorbed by the body and turned into energy (calories). Alcohol affects many of the body’s systems and over-consumption can lead to excess fat storage and also weaken the body’s fighting force.
Do you smoke?
Smoking robs the body of Vitamin C and certain B vitamins – one cigarette depletes 25mg of Vitamin C. Each cigarette is a nutritional step backwards.
Are you striving to reach your ideal weight?
The body functions optimally as its correct body weight, like a perfectly tuned car. Carrying excess weight creates extra work and a need for more nutrients for fuel and functioning. If the diet is poor then the 24 hour repair and replacement of body cells is impaired. Equally, being below ideal weight creates a weakened system as the body struggles with reduces facilities for fuel and functioning. Formula 2 contains carefully balanced ingredients to help provide nutrient support in either situation.
