Essential Supplementation Multi + ACE + Fish Oil
Everyone seems to be marketing the new latest and greatest supplement which will cure everything from obesity to hair loss! How do you begin to unravel the mystery of supplementation? Well the good news is: you don't need everything on the shelves. All you need is MULTI + ACE + FISH OIL.
There are three types of food called macronutrients: protein, fats and carbohydrates. But there are also a number of micronutrients that your body needs for optimal health. Where do these come from? The answer lies in Essential Supplementation.
It is a fact of life that taking additional vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, in the right combination and amounts for your body, is no longer optional. Why? Three reasons: 1. The degradation of our food supply - most foods we purchase from our grocers today are nutritionally deficient as a result of modern food processing. 2. The increasing pollution of our water, soil, and air. 3. As confirmed by the American Medical Association (as reported in the Journal of American Medical Association on 19 June 2002), It is literally impossible to get optimal amounts of nutrients from food alone, no matter what the source.
Supplementation can be daunting. Walk into any health food store and you are bombarded with walls packed with thousands of different brands of supplements all claiming different healing properties. So what's the approach? Keep it simple - start with the core supplements - those that are absolutely essential for optimal health. These core supplements that comprise your supplement foundation are Multi + ACE + Fish Oil.
The first part of the equation is a high quality multi-vitamin/mineral. High quality means no fillers, no coloring, no additives and no artificial coloring/flavoring. This also means pharmaceutical quality and highly assimilable versions of every vitamin and mineral it comprises in the optimal amounts for energy and disease prevention. You do not find this quality in a grocery store brand. Generally speaking, when it comes to high quality supplements, you get what you pay for.
The next part of the core supplement equation is ACE - translation: vitamins A, C and E. These are the most powerful antioxidants on the planet. Antioxidants prevent free radical damage , the most significant cause of aging and degenerative disease like cancer. What is a free radical? Free radicals are produced when a stable oxygen molecule in your body loses one electron, becoming unstable - a free radical. In sets off a chain reaction where the free radical either donates an electron to or steals it from another stable making that molecule a free radical and so on. This process, called oxidation , continues uncontrolled unless neutralized by antioxidants. To understand the oxidation process, think of the rusting of iron, or the browning of a cut apple.
Your body produces millions of free radicals bodies every minute. Exercise, stress, smoking, the air you breathe, all increase free radical production. This process of oxidation disrupts cellular chemistry eventually causing cells to die.
Your body naturally produces certain amounts of antioxidants (called free radical scavengers ), however these small amounts are not adequate to combat the onslaught of free radical damage from external sources. Antioxidant supplementation is essential to increase your defenses and inhibit damage caused by excessive numbers of free radicals.
Evidence is now irrefutable that correct use of the right combination of anti-oxidants can prevent and even reverse many forms of degenerative disease. The most important thing to understand is that antioxidants work in synergy in your body, meaning it is no use having one antioxidant in isolation. The most important combination of antioxidants that work in synergy to provide defense against free radical damage are A, C and E.
Vitamin A, in the non-toxic beta-carotene form (precursor to Vitamin A) has been proven to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease more effectively than Vitamin A itself. The minimum recommended dosage for optimal health is 25,000 I.U.'s per day.
Water-soluble vitamin C is the most powerful antioxidant and detoxifier, with anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. It plays a key role in immune function and is effective for lowering cholesterol and strengthening collagen, a major component of your connective tissue, like your arteries. So powerful is this vitamin, that it has been used for a number of years in the treatment and prevention of cancer. The minimum recommended dosage for optimum health is 3000 mg, per day taken as 1000 mg 3 times per day.
Vitamin E, the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidant prevents lipid (fat) oxidation. Your cell membranes are made of lipids, so vitamin E effectively prevents your cell's protective coatings from becoming rancid as a result of free radical damage. Vitamin E also improves your body's utilization of oxygen and is a powerful immune system booster. Minimum recommended dosage is 400 IU's of natural form vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol) per day.
These three vitamins act together in perfect synergy to form a powerful defense system against the aging effects of free radical damage. Keep in mind that the more active you are, the higher dosage of antioxidants you need. If you want to age successfully and disease free, Multi + ACE is the way.

EPA/DHA (Fish Oil)
We all know by now that cold water fish such as tuna, mackerel, and salmon contain essential fatty acids known as EPA and DHA, which are part of the omega-3 family. These essential fats are long-chain fatty acids, with a slightly different chemical structure to that of flax oil, with some similar benefits to flax oil, plus additional benefits. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) have been recognized by researchers as being vitally important to achieving optimal health, energy, and longevity. EPA and DHA are the building blocks for the cells in your vital organs and your body requires these Omega-3s to function properly. EPA and DHA have a wide variety of health benefits. Clinical research has shown EPA and DHA support:
- A Healthy Heart
- A Healthy Brain
- Increased Fat Burning!
- Balanced Mood
- Healthy Joint Movement
- Healthy Cholesterol and triglyceride Levels
- A Healthy Immune System
- Healthy Kidneys
- Strength and Stamina*
It is safe, and recommended, to take both flax seed oil/flax seed plus additional EPA/DHA. Yes, you can eat fish and receive some EPA/DHA, but most fish that is purchased from
grocery stores and in restaurants is farm raised and low in these essential fats. Also, a lot of the fish available today is from polluted water sources.
There is a clean, safe option! OmegaEnergy Fish Oil is the highest quality, pure, toxin free, ultra-refined, and super concentrated fish oil available on the market today.
