Four Important Nutrients - Vitamin E, Selenium, Sodium and Potassium - For Good Health

Vitamin E

There has been a lot of controversy about vitamin E lately. In the news last month, the news media was pushing a story that "Vitamin E can cause you to die." This story came about from a study that was made by certain researchers. In the alternative medicine group, they determined that this study was flawed. Most of the people in the study were already sick with serious illnesses.

Taking a dose of Vitamin E of 400 to 800 IU is appropriate. Higher doses can be taken for particular diseases - intestine disease, liver disease, pancreas disease, and surgical removal of stomach, but - for the average person this dose is enough.

The type of Vitamin E you should take is: d-alpha tocopherol - this is the nature Vitamin E.

When buying Vitamin E get the Vitamin that contains the family of Natural Vitamin E for better health such as, d-alpha tocopherol succinate, gamma, delta and beta.

Avoid using the synthetic Vitamin E. The synthetic is called, dl-alpha tocopherol.

The synthetic type is not good for you and can possible cause some harm.

Vitamin E is found in various foods including vegetable oils (corn, cottonseed, soybean, safflower - it isn't recommended that you use these oils.) Wheat germ, whole-grain cereals, and green leafy vegetables are good sources of Vitamin E. Cooking and storage may destroy some of the vitamin E in foods.


Here's another important nutrient - Selenium. Researchers at the University of Arizona have done clinical trials that show those who had more selenium in their blood had lower incidence of colorectal tumors. Selenium has also been found to be effective in keeping the prostrate health.

Selenium is one of the best antioxidants and should be included in your daily supplements. The recommended daily dose for, Women is 50-55 mcg Men is 65-70 mcg.

Sodium and Potassium

I have mentioned in the past, that if you want to avoid being sick now or in the future, you need to work towards an Alkaline Body. This is such important concept that I want to tell you again. Eating fruits and vegetables is critical in keeping your body alkaline.

And, if you drink water it does not make sense to drink plain water. If you're going to drink water why not drink alkaline water, and give yourself two important minerals that make your body alkaline - ionic sodium and ionic potassium. If you use a product call ALKALIFE, you can add these minerals into your water.

These minerals help to neutralize acid in your body. In doing so, it moves your body towards alkalinity. An acid body is destructive to body tissue, and to organ function. It attracts parasites, bacteria, fungus, and all sorts of pathogen to live and multiply inside you.

By adding 2 drops of Alkalife into water, you change the water from a neutral pH of 7.0 to an alkaline drink of 8.0. This is the best gift you can give yourself
