Foundations: Core Nutrition

    Your personalized nutrition plan starts here.
    Many of the most prevalent health conditions have been directly linked to improper nutrition and
    poor lifestyle habits. Even small nutritional deficiencies can compromise immunity, vitality, and
    damage health. Nourishing the roots of your health by taking care of your core nutritional needs
    creates a strong foundation for your body and establishes a bank of resources to build and repair
    your body, and to fuel your daily activities.

    Start with a solid foundation:
    Multivitamin/Mineral
    Essential Fatty Acids
    Antioxidants
    Probiotics
    Bone Nutrients
    1. Multivitamin / Mineral
    Even the best diet cannot guarantee optimal nutrient levels due to high-volume farming meth-
    ods. A high potency multivitamin and mineral supplement is necessary to fill in nutrient gaps.
    It provides a comprehensive selection of nutrients in the highly usable forms such as coenzyme
    B vitamins. Correcting nutrient deficiencies is the first and most important step in preventative
    healthcare.

    2. Essential Fatty Acids
    Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are vital to health and are not manufactured by the body. The
    standard American Diet is largely devoid of these important oils. EFAs benefit many different areas
    of the body, such as skin and hair, bones and joints, eyes, as well as the cardiovascular and nervous
    systems. A deficiency or imbalance of essential fatty acids can lead to depression, anxiety, lack of
    concentration, various skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema, and inflammation of

4                               CentralDrugsRx.com                                877.447.7077
various tissues (conditions ending in –itis; i.e. arthritis). Taking a mo-
    lecularly distilled and potent Omega-3 supplement will help provide
    your body with optimal levels of these important oils.

    3. Antioxidants
    Antioxidants protect the body from free radical damage (think of it
    like internal rust) caused by poor dietary habits, exposure to pollu-
    tion, sun damage, smoking, drinking alcohol, and other lifestyle hab-
    its. Adding key antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium,
    alpha lipoic acid, turmeric, and green tea, can be minimize this type
    of damage. Antioxidants can be protective and helpful in the follow-
    ing areas: detoxification, healthy cellular growth, brain, eye, skin, and
    heart health, as well as graceful aging.

    4. Probiotics
    Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that inhabit the entire digestive urinary, and reproductive tracts.
    Healthy bacteria aid in the absorption of nutrients, discourage bad bacterial growth, and act as part
    of the immune system. Imbalances in beneficial bacteria can occur from taking various medica-
    tions (steroids, antibiotics, and birth control pills), traveling, Taking probiotics can enhance diges-
    tion, immune function, and skin health.

    5. Bone Nutrients
    Bone is dynamic, living tissue that is continually being renewed. Poor diet, lack of physical activity,
    general aging, and hormonal changes disrupt the healthy processes of bone renewal. The minerals
    used by your body in response to stressful activities, allergies, and regular daily needs, all deplete
    from your body’s mineral warehouse, your bones. Eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and
    taking a formula that contains key bone supporting nutrients is highly recommended. Calcium (in
    its most absorbable form, hydroxyapetite), magnesium, vitamin D-3, boron, strontium, and zinc,
    are just some examples of the raw materials needed to replenish bone minerals.

Diet

    Essential Components of a Healthy Diet
                                                               Is your body getting the right balance of
                                                               nutrients? If you experience any one of
                                                               these symptoms, start rethinking your
                                                               diet: heartburn, constipation, thinning
                                                               hair, skin conditions, foot or body odor,
                                                               bad breath, fatigue, weight gain, PMS, or
                                                               depression. Each has associations with
                                                               imbalanced nutrition. Eating foods that
                                                               are full of nutrients helps protect your
                                                               body from illness and other imbalances.
                                                               Advance meal planning enables healthier
                                                               eating habits. For guidance, use nutritious
                                                               recipes in cookbooks and magazines, or
    consult a nutritionist who will create a healthy eating plan that matches your body’s unique needs.

    A Well-Balanced Diet Includes:
    •   A variety of nutrient rich carbohydrates, high-quality protein, and healthy fats.
    •   Appropriate portion sizes. Remember your stomach is roughly the size of your fist when empty!
    •   Regular meals. If eating three main meals a day does not work for you, try six smaller ones.
    •   Limited amounts of processed foods, and foods high in sugar or salt.
    •   Taking the time to enjoy and savor your food.
    There are no excuses for unhealthy eating. “Too busy” just means something is not a priority for
    you. Meal planning saves money and time by making shopping quicker and allows for healthier
    choices than browsing every aisle at the store. Pick a regular day to write a menu for the week
    ahead, and then make the shopping list. When at the grocery store, stick to your list.
    Use expert help if you’re not creative with recipes. A greater amount of beneficial nutrients comes
    with more color and variety on your plate. The healthiest foods are those that remain closest to
    their natural state. Fresh vegetables are always healthier than frozen or canned.
    Another time saving and portion control tip is to prepare large meals in advance and then separate
    them into single serve containers for future meals. Having a well-stocked kitchen makes it easier
    to make good food choices. And, establishing a cooking and shopping routine is important to your
    success.
    Plan your meals based around these nutrition guidelines:

    CARBOHYDRATES (40-60% of daily calories)
    Healthy sources of carbohydrates include vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains. Complex
    carbohydrates provide fiber which is critical to the efficiency of numerous body processes. Limit

6                                CentralDrugsRx.com                                877.447.7077
simple carbohydrates (white sugar and white flour, soda-pop, desserts, candy, etc.). These provide
    little or no value and contribute to insulin resistance, obesity, hormone imbalances, and chronic
    inflammation issues.

    PROTEIN (20-30% of daily calories)
    Preference is given to complete proteins that include all of the essential amino acids (organic, free-
    range, or wild animal sources such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and yogurt over commercial or
    processed meats and farm-raised fish). Incomplete proteins come from fruits, vegetables, whole
    grains, nuts and seeds. Vegetarians must pay attention to food choices to include all the essential
    amino acids.

    FAT (20-30% of daily calories)
    Healthy fats (omega-3 essential fatty acids and omega-6 essen-
    tial fatty acids) are vital to health and are not made by the body.
    They fight inflammation, stimulate the immune system, en-
    hance mood, and support joint health, as well as cardiovascular,
    brain, and nervous system functions. You must get these good
    fats from your diet (wild cold-water fish, walnuts, flaxseed, etc.)
    or an essential fatty acid (EFA) supplement. Avoid or at least
    limit your consumption of unhealthy fats such as hydrogenated
    oils found in many manufactured or processed foods.

Weight Management
    Excess body weight is associated with many health risks including diabetes, high cholesterol, el-
    evated blood pressure, gallstones, sleep apnea, hormone disorders, and cancer. Weight gain pre-
    dominantly around your midsection increases your chances of developing a serious health condi-
    tion. Weight management involves treating your body respectfully so it can continue to serve you
    well. You must be willing to promise your body a lifestyle that gives it good nutrition, exercise, and
    rest after stress. Conquering food cravings and managing your portion sizes are essential parts of
    reaching and maintaining a healthy weight.

    Do You Eat Smart? – 5 Questions
    •      1. Am I truly hungry?
    •      2. Am I eating out of habit or just seeking comfort?
    •      3. Is this food going to nourish my body or is it empty calories?
    •      4. Will I stop eating when I am full?
    •      5. Is my body relaxed enough to digest the food I am eating?

    Food Cravings
    The next time you “need” chocolate or automatically pick up chips, take a moment to tune in to
    your body. Notice your emotions. Food cravings are often related to mood, but can also alert you
    that your body wants to correct a nutrient imbalance. Cravings for sweet foods may be related to
    an overgrowth of yeast. Salt cravings may be indicative of adrenal fatigue. Sometimes food cravings
    are not cravings at all, just habits.
    Here are some helpful hints to help curb your cravings. Eat colorful meals of fresh food and take
    a high-potency multivitamin and multimineral supplement. A mix of protein, complex carbohy-
    drates, and healthy fats helps balance blood sugar levels and provides lasting energy. Drink a full
    glass of water (only water) instead to see if your body was really craving hydration. Avoid highly
    sweet or artificial foods designed to trigger cravings. Food cravings tend to last 10-15 minutes, so
    wait before responding to them.

    Portion Sizes
    Eating at restaurants makes it easy to overeat, especially when they offer all you can eat buffets and
    serve overflowing plates of food. Managing the size of your portions is key to maintaining a healthy
    weight. When eating at restaurants, get into the habit of taking half of your meal home and, when
    eating at a buffet, use a smaller-size plate and skip that trip for seconds. Having handy examples of
    portion sizes is a helpful tool for controlling your portions. Here are some examples of reasonable
    portions:

PROTEIN
    3 servings/day

    HEALTHY FATS / OILS
    2 servings/day

    CALCIUM RICH FOODS
    3 servings/day

    COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES
    3 servings of starches and 4 servings of vegetables, plus 3 servings of fruits/day

    One serving equals:
    •       Deck of cards = 3 ounces of lean meat, fish, poultry, or pork
    •       Rounded handful (only in palm) = ½ cup of rice, pasta, cut fruit
    •       Four dice = 1 ounce natural cheese
    •       Clenched fist = 1 cup skim milk, most vegetables
    •       Hockey puck = ½ bagel
    •       Baseball = apple, orange
    •       Thumb tip = 1 tsp butter
    •       Computer mouse = potato
    •       Golf ball = 2 tbsp nut butter

Inflammation/Pain Reducing Foods
     Inflammation/Pain Reducing Foods
     If you are experiencing any type of pain, your body is alerting you that there is inflammation pres-
     ent. Inflammation may still be present even without pain (e.g. cancer, heart disease). Poor food
     choices can increase any inflammation present. Limit processed foods, white sugar, white flour,
     trans-fats, and red meat each of which can aggravate or increase inflammation. Increase your serv-
     ings of anti-inflammatory foods such as colorful fruits and vegetables, spices, and dark chocolate,
     which all contain powerful flavonoids that have antioxidant properties.
     5 Anti-inflammatory Superfoods & Spices
     •   Blueberry: Supports eye health, brain health, and vascular health. Ranked one of the best in
         terms of antioxidant activity.
     •   Tumeric: Contains curcumin, a powerful antioxidant that has potent anti-inflammatory & de-
         toxification capabilities.
     •   Ginger: Contains anti-inflammatory chemicals (gingerols), which fight free radicals & pro-
         inflammatory chemicals.
     •   Cold water fish: Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EPA/DHA) have strong anti-inflammatory &
         heart-protective activity.
     •   Dark chocolate: Contains a high level of flavonoids, responsible for relaxing blood vessels &
         balancing inflammatory chemicals.
     An injury or an infection causes the body to respond with pain, heat, and swelling. This reaction
     is a protective response from a healthy immune system and initiates healing. Inflammation can
     become systemic or chronic if not completely resolved by the immune system. Chronic inflamma-
     tion is neither protective nor beneficial to the body. In fact, it can be very damaging to your health.
     Factors that may cause systemic inflammation include stress, food allergies, mild or severe obesity,
     exposure to chemicals, or eating a diet high in refined sugars and processed foods. Chronic inflam-
     mation is believed to be the culprit behind many degenerative diseases including heart disease,
     Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and cancer. Ask your doctor about an important diagnostic test that
     measures your inflammatory level (C-Reactive Protein).
     Allergic reactions to common foods such as dairy, wheat gluten, and nightshade plants (potatoes,
     peppers, eggplants, and tomatoes) can compromise health by creating a leaky gut. Damage to the
     gut lining from allergic reactions causes increased intestinal permeability, which can result in auto-
     immune-like disorders and further inflammation. If you experience symptoms such as continuous
     digestive discomfort, fatigue, skin irritation, or joint inflammation consider having a food allergy
     test done. This simple blood test measures your body’s immune response to food. The laboratory
     will provide you with a clear list of foods to avoid. You will find that you will feel much better once

you remove these foods from your diet.
     An enzyme deficiency can cause incomplete protein digestion and result in inflammation. Enzymes
     play a major role in the digestion and absorption of nutrients by ensuring the proper breakdown of
     carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Raw foods, particularly sprouts, avocados, papayas, pineapples,
     bananas, and mangos provide a rich source of enzymes. Your body also produces enzymes, but not
     enough when stressed or aging. Some people simply lack enzymes, like those who do not produce
     lactase to digest lactose (milk sugar). Adding an enzyme complex can help to reduce inflammation
     as it ensures complete digestion of otherwise irritating proteins.

Selecting, Preparing, & Storing Food
Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, high-quality protein sources, and healthy fats are all rich sources of
beneficial nutrients that can nourish and protect your body. The way you select, prepare, and store
your food plays a major role in the amount of nutrients available for you to absorb and utilize when
you eat it. Food additives, overcooking, and improper food storage can destroy valuable vitamins,
minerals, and other nutrients. Get the most out of your diet by learning how to choose, cook, and
keep your favorite foods.

5 Steps to Protecting Your Food’s Value
1. Read packaged food labels and avoid any ingredient you would not eat by itself.
2. Eat foods closest to their natural state.
3. Be careful not to overcook your food.
4. Use proper cookware and storage containers.
5. Choose organic foods whenever possible.

Selecting Foods
Foods that contain the most healthful nutrients are those that are unprocessed. This means that
they are free of additives (such as sugar and salt), artificial preservatives, colors, and artificial fla-
vorings. These undesirable ingredients are added to prolong shelf life or enhance color or texture.
They provide no nutritional value and can be potentially harmful, especially to sensitive individu-
als. The healthiest sweetener options that are safe even for those watching blood sugar levels in-
clude xylitol and stevia.
The classifications “organic, free-range, wild, and non-GMO (genetically modified organism)” in-
dicate that these foods and beverages are minimally exposed to insecticides, herbicides, artificial
fertilizers, antibiotics, or growth hormones. Also, when choosing produce, select fresh, ripe fruits
and vegetables as they contain peak amounts of vitamins and minerals (avoid canned and frozen).

Preparing foods
Washing produce is an important part of food preparation, especially if non-organic. Use a scrub
brush or vegetable wash product to remove residual chemicals. Raw or slightly steamed vegetables
are better than soggy. Overcooking destroys important nutrients and enzymes. The most nutritious
ways to cook meat and poultry are roasting, broiling, or boiling. Barbecued or blackened meats
may contain harmful, carcinogenic substances.
Glass, stainless steel, and iron cookware is preferred over aluminum or non-stick. Do not use plas-
tic wrap or plastic containers in the microwave because they often contain chemicals that can leach
into the food, especially when heated.

                              CentralDrugsRx.com                                  877.447.7077
Food Storage
The longer food is kept in storage, the fewer nutrients it will retain. Eating foods grown locally can
help. Local food has not traveled far and has spent less time in storage. Other benefits include pro-
duce that is fresh, ripe, seasonally appropriate, and supportive to your local economy. Go shopping
often instead of freezing food.
Once you get your food home, what is the best storage method? Research indicates that foods and
liquids can absorb harmful chemicals found in many plastic containers, which can result in un-
healthy hormonal effects on the body. It is best to use plastic containers only when necessary (i.e.
for freezing food). Glass and ceramic containers, or stainless steel cookware are the safest for stor-
ing food in the refrigerator. Even water is best stored in glass bottles.

Lifestyle

     Environmental Health
     A toxic substance is any compound that has an unhealthy effect on cellular structure or function.
     We encounter toxic chemicals on a daily basis, often without even knowing it. Exposure may come
     from the food we eat, the water we drink, the clothes we wear, or how we clean our homes and care
     for our yards. Toxins are everywhere. Even our own bodies produce toxic substances that need dis-
     posal. It is important to become aware of common toxins in your environment, take steps to limit
     exposure, and to increase your body’s natural defenses.

     5 Easy Ways to Reduce Your Toxic Load
     •   Buy and use a high-quality air purifier and water filter for your home and work.
     •   Cut down on all plastic use – Avoid non-stick cookware, microwaving using plastic wrap or in
         plastic containers, and switch to drinking only out of glass bottles.
     •   Eat fresh, non-processed, whole, and organic foods whenever possible.
     •   Use only safe, non-toxic household cleaners and yard care products.
     •   Choose natural and non-toxic personal products, such as chemical-free shampoo and condi-
         tioner, cosmetics, and deodorants.
     Examples of common toxins include mercury from silver fillings, chemicals used to make non-
     stick cookware, and pesticides used on fruits and vegetables. These toxic substances can contribute
     to various health problems by taking up residence in fat cells, bones, cell membranes, and organs.
     Of course, some toxic substances are more dangerous than others. The length of toxin exposure,
     number of exposures, and the specific mixture of harmful substances that have accumulated, all
     determine the level of toxic burden placed on the body (also referred to as Total Toxic Load). Indi-
     vidual factors such as genetics, age, and overall health also play important roles in how your body
     is able to rid itself of harmful substances. The more exposure, the more difficult it becomes for your
     body to process and remove toxins.
     Toxins can permanently damage the immune system, nervous system, and can interfere with im-
     portant hormone communication. Symptoms of toxicity can range from mild (psoriasis, fatigue,
     anxiety, depression, an inability to concentrate), to severe (auto-immune disorders, convulsions,
     psychiatric symptoms, cancer, and even death). Some adult diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease
     and other mental disorders can be traced back to early childhood toxin exposure.
     The liver is the body’s primary organ for detoxification. It takes toxic chemicals and breaks them
     down into less harmful substances that are then excreted from the body. The intestines, kidneys,
     lymphatic system, skin, and lungs are all key players in healthy elimination of toxins (even simple
     toxins like carbon dioxide). In particular, bowel movements on a daily basis are an important part
     of ridding the body of toxins, and part of why constipation makes you feel unwell.
     Reducing your exposure to harmful substances and improving your body’s detoxification processes
     are both required to maintain good health. Using water filters on your drinking and showering
     water and using air purifiers in your home and work environment are simple yet effective ways

to reduce toxin exposure. In addition, incorporating good nutrition, natural fabrics, sauna use,
occasional fasting, and taking on healthy lifestyle practices are great ways to assist your body’s de-
toxification processes.

Exercise
We all know that regular exercise along with balanced nutrition is a necessary part of good health.
However, even minor efforts can produce healthful results. In fact, a recent study found that engag-
ing in physical activity as little as a half hour daily can add on two to three years of life expectancy.
This should come as encouraging news for all couch potatoes. Get moving! Any exercise is better
than none at all. If you have existing health problems or are over the age of forty, consult with a
healthcare provider before starting a new exercise plan or changing an existing one.

5 Tips for Reaching your Exercise Goals
•   Pick exercises that you really enjoy.
•   Increase your success rate by exercising with a friend or fitness coach.
•   Stay motivated by keeping an exercise journal that outlines your accomplishments.
•   Evaluate your progress bi-weekly, not every day.
•   Reward yourself by doing something fun that supports your healthy efforts.
Choosing an activity that you enjoy, such as swimming, bicycling, or dancing will make exercise
more fun and not a chore. Even household activities such as gardening, mowing the lawn, cleaning
your house, and washing your car count as exercise. Recreation really does help you re-create your
feeling of well-being.
Your mind, body, and spirit can all benefit from engaging in physical activity. For your body, ex-
ercise helps to protect against the development of chronic diseases, supports healthy bone density,
supports healthy weight management, increases heart and lung function, and has a positive effect
on cholesterol levels and blood pressure. And for your mind and spirit, exercise decreases muscle
tension, can enhance feelings of well-being, improves your ability to handle stress, and often im-
proves self-esteem and elevates mood.
A combination of exercises (cardiovascular, strength training, and stretching) is a good mix for
your fitness routine. Each type of exercise has separate benefits. For example, aerobic/cardiovas-
cular exercises improve the body’s capacity to use fuel (food or fat) and oxygen. Aerobic exer-
cise increases the amount of blood that is supplied to the muscles and increases oxygen delivery
throughout the body. Just twenty minutes a day of aerobic exercise can lower blood pressure and
strengthen the heart. Power walking, playing sports, cross-country skiing, and taking an aerobics
class are some great examples of cardiovascular activities. Aim for at least 30 minutes of cardiovas-
cular exercise at least three days a week.
Strength training exercises help to build strong muscles, increase bone density, and support healthy
joint function. Pilates, yoga, using weights and resistance bands, martial arts, and using a punching
bag are all forms of strength training. Devote at least 2 days a week to strength training and be sure
to give adequate recovery time for each muscle group.
Stretching exercises are recommended BOTH before and after physical activity. Stretching pre-
pares muscles for exercise, protects muscles against injury, enhances flexibility, improves circula-
                              CentralDrugsRx.com                                 877.447.7077
tion, reduces stress, and provides better range of motion for your joints. Stretching is something
that you can easily do just about anywhere, even while sitting in your chair. Stretch for about 5-10
minutes before and after each activity.

Relaxation & Stress Management
Everyone knows that too much stress is bad for your health. Still, many of us leave little room for
relaxation in our busy lives. Relaxation and stress management are required for good health and
need to become part of the daily routine. Relaxation allows for improved digestion, detoxification,
body repair, and restocking the body’s reserves. Research continues to support the beneficial effects
that come from relaxation: reducing anxiety, managing pain, decreasing symptoms associated with
various conditions, and overall disease prevention.

7 Minute Relaxation Exercise
1. Find a comfortable location and lay down on your back. Begin by taking 5 slow, deep breaths.
2. Focus your attention on your feet. As you inhale, gently tighten the muscles in your feet and
   hold for 8 seconds. Do not hold your breath. With a long breath out, slowly relax these muscles
   for about 20 seconds. Before moving on to the next set of muscles, breathe deeply again.
3. Next, focus your attention on the muscles in your legs. Tighten for 8 seconds, relax for 20 sec-
   onds, and take another deep breath. Continue the same process as you work your way up your
   body to your thighs, buttocks, stomach, chest, hands, shoulders, arms, neck, and face.
4. End with 5 slow, deep breaths.
Stress is defined as any situation that disrupts the body’s balance. On a daily basis we are faced with
both good and bad stressors. How quickly you process and dismiss stress contributes to your con-
tinued health. Ideally, your body reacts to a stressful situation and then quickly returns to center.
If you are under continual stress, your body is not able to return to center. As a result, stress hor-
mones continue to circulate in the bloodstream with negative health effects.
Ongoing stress can disturb the body’s ability to absorb and store important nutrients, resulting in
nutritional deficiencies. For example, B vitamins, potassium, phosphorus, Vitamin C, magnesium,
and calcium levels can become depleted. Stress can also promote the formation of free radicals in
the body, weaken the immune system, increase blood pressure, disrupt sleep, impair attention and
memory, and cause weight gain.
Unfortunately, some people are so used to being under stress that they are not even aware that their
bodies are actually in a continuous state of physical disruption. Digestive complaints, neck and
back pain, and headaches appear “normal.” These symptoms are not “normal,” they are alerting you
that your body is physically unable to cope with the pressure.
Managing stress involves identifying and eliminating the cause(s). Establishing positive patterns
to replace negative (stressful) habits ensures better handling of stress. Getting regular exercise and
eating a healthful diet nourishes and supports a healthy mind and body, and strengthens your
stress-fighting ability.
Avoid caffeine, alcohol, refined sugars, and possible food allergens, each of which can contribute to

                             CentralDrugsRx.com                                 877.447.7077
a stressful state. Eating regular meals in a relaxing atmosphere helps to promote healthy digestion
(e.g. at a real table, no television, no car).
Relaxation can be as simple as sipping a warm drink while cozying up to a good book, taking an
aromatic bath, listening to enjoyable music, or getting outside to garden. It can be something you
do on your own or enjoy with others. Deep breathing exercises, visualization, yoga, meditation, Tai
Chi, and massage are all other great examples of ways to help your mind and body let go of stress.

Water: Hydration & Health
Do you experience headaches, fatigue, muscle pains, constipation, heartburn, anxiety attacks, food
intolerances, joint and muscle weakness, dry skin, chapped lips, water retention, digestive prob-
lems, or bad breath? If so, you may be suffering from dehydration. Many people are dehydrated and
are not even aware of it. Even mild dehydration can impair cognitive function, such as short-term
memory, alertness, and concentration. Dehydration can result from simply not drinking enough
water, or from drinking fluids such as soda, coffee, or alcohol that rob your body of water. Pregnan-
cy, breastfeeding, hot weather, exercising, and illnesses that involve a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea
also increase your body’s need for water.

5 Ways to Prevent Dehydration
1. Carry water with you everywhere you go.
2. Eat foods that contain a high amount of water, such as fruits, vegetables, soups, & smoothies.
3. Drink beverages such as milk, low-sugar juices, & herbal teas.
4. Fill water bottles at the start of your day and make sure you drink them by the end of the day.
5. Drink room temperature & still water rather than sparkling or ice-cold water. The carbonation
   & cold temperature make it harder to drink a lot of water at one time.
Water is an essential substance that is required for nearly every body process including digestion,
absorption, circulation, and excretion. Water is the main carrier of nutrients throughout the body
and is essential for carrying out waste products. Moreover, a recent study has shown that along with
healthy diet and lifestyle factors, drinking water has a preventative effect on bladder, colorectal, and
breast cancer.
General guidelines for ensuring proper hydration include drinking eight to ten glasses of water
daily. Keep in mind that specific water needs vary from person to person based on health and ac-
tivity level. Also, drinking coffee, soda, and alcohol increases your body’s water requirements. Do
not try to lose weight by reducing your water intake. This is dangerous. Drinking water can actually
help you to lose weight. Simply drinking a glass of water 15 minutes before each meal can help to
increase your sense of fullness and allow you to eat less.
If you are not sure if you are drinking enough water, tune into your body. Start by paying attention
to the color of your urine. Dark urine indicates that your body is conserving what little water it
has, and is in great need of more fluids. You want your urine to be colorless or slightly yellow. It is
also important to drink water before you get thirsty. Thirst is a signal of dehydration. So, if you are
thirsty, drink to quench your thirst as well as an additional two glasses of water. Another impor-
tant indicator of dehydration is bowel activity. If you are not drinking enough water, your colon
will reabsorb more water from your waste material and result in hard stools (and a recirculation of
toxins).
The quality of your drinking water is also very important. Tap water can still contain impurities

                             CentralDrugsRx.com                                  877.447.7077
regardless of what is considered “safe” exposure. Filtering tap water can significantly improve the
water’s taste and safety and is strongly recommended. There are many different types of filters
available that vary in cost and effectiveness. Reverse osmosis seems to be one of the best filtering
methods. It is also best to avoid drinking water out of plastic containers. However, if you do, avoid
the softer, cloudy plastic containers because they seem to leech the most chemicals into your water.
Glass bottles are ideal.

Digestive Support
As we age, our digestive systems do not function as well as when we were young. Taking digestive
enzymes helps to digest the food we eat more completely so that we are better able to absorb and
utilize the nutrients from food. This is especially important if your appetite has also decreased with
age.

Men in Their 20’s & 30’s
The 20’s and 30’s represent a time of both working and playing hard. Because it is often a very busy
time for most men, taking good care of oneself is often overlooked. That is why it is so important
to replace key vitamins and nutrients. Good health during these years helps to build the founda-
tion for good vitality for the future. If starting a family is priority, be sure to focus on nutrients that
support reproductive health.

Reproductive Support
Zinc is a key mineral for men’s reproductive and prostate health, and is essential for cell division,
cell repair, and cell growth. It is also important for supporting the immune system, aiding in wound
healing, as well as supporting skin and eye health. The body needs a continual supply of zinc, and
80% of people in this country do not get enough zinc.

Energy Support
The B vitamins play a major role in supporting nervous system and immune system health. They
are involved in many important metabolic functions in the human body and must be replaced on
a daily basis. The easiest and best way to get what your body needs is to take a B-Complex vitamin.
The B vitamins work as a team and are best together in a formula.

Prostate Support
Prostate enlargement is a very common condition that affects many men over the age of forty.
Symptoms include increased urinary frequency, nighttime waking to empty the bladder, and a
weak stream during urination. Clinical trials support the use of saw palmetto and stinging nettle
root to address the hormonal changes associated with this aging process. Other minerals, essential
fatty acids, and amino acids are also suggested to help discourage prostate inflammation/enlarge-
ment.

Cardiovascular Support
Because heart disease is largely a disease of diet and lifestyle, by incorporating healthy habits and
taking key nutrients it is possible to greatly reduce this risk. Heart healthy nutrients include B
vitamins, essential fatty acids, magnesium, CoQ-10, garlic, hawthorn, green tea, and grape seed
extract.

Joint Support
Healthy joints require exercise and movement plus a variety of nutrients that provide the building
blocks for cartilage formation and repair. Glucosamine, MSM, and chondroitin are used primarily
in the joint tissues, where they are incorporated in the substance of cartilage, ligaments, and ten-
dons. Helper nutrients such as quercetin, grape seed extract, and turmeric provide anti-inflamma-
tory and antioxidant support.
