In part one we discussed the 90 essentials; the building blocks for your body. Today, we break down what is in the healthy start pack from Youngevity as this is where we started and where we recommend you start.
Part II: Healthy Start Pack from Youngevity, starting with EFAs
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) also referred to as Omega 3-6-9.
Our bodies cannot produce Omega-3 (Alpha-Linolenic Acid) or Omega-6 (Linoleic Acid) we must consume them through our diet. Omega-9, on the other hand, is an unsaturated fat and can be synthesized by our bodies. Fatty acids are “essential” because they are vital to our health and to the life of our cells. Most of us do not consume enough Omegas from our diet, which means we need to supplement.
Some sources of Omega-3 include egg yolk and cold water fish
Some sources of Omega-6 include flax seed, canola oil and green leaves
Omega-9 can be found in vegetable and animal fats
Remember, it is necessary to maintain a balance of Omegas for our overall health.
Next, let us look at Beyond Osteo-fx.
Beyond Osteo-fx restores bone and joint health. Using powerful antioxidants formulaed to target and eradicate free radicals, all while addressing nutritional deficiencies that lead to inflammation. It contains the following vitamins and minerals.
- Vitamin D3
Rounding out the Healthy Start Pack, is Beyond Tangy Tangerine (sometimes referred to as “BTT”).
Beyond Tangy Tangerine is the most advanced multi-vitamin to date! It not only contains potent nutrients and synergizing co-factors (that is a fun word), but it also has a unique blend of Pre-Biotics and Pro-Biotics that provide advanced intestinal support, promotes maximum absorption and helps to ensure your body receive the highest quality of essential nutrients.
To put it simply, BTT is:
- Contains no starch, wheat or yeast
- Has no artificial sweeteners or preservatives
- Certified organic
In other words, it has a bunch of good ingredients in it that our bodies need and none of the bad we so often find in many of our health products today, like vitamins.
We want to remind you of the importance of quality-minerals. They have a role in nearly every bodily function – from building healthy bones and teeth to energy production and immune support. Minerals are so crucial to our health that even slight imbalances can have major consequences. These can range from from low energy levels to gastrointestinal issues.
Because they are inorganic substances, minerals cannot be synthesized by the human body.
They have to be obtained from the foods we eat and unfortunately, our modern diets consist of mostly low-quality and processed foods. Poor diet, combined with mineral-depleted soils and crops, has made it difficult for most of us to get adequate amounts of essential nutrients, however, Youngevity’s core “90 for Life” products are specifically designed for ideal absorption. This helps to ensure your body has the nutrients it needs to perform at optimum levels, helps you feel younger and have more energy. With these nutrients, the body can avoid – and even reverse – many of today’s pressing health concerns.
To conclude, it is extremely important to choose high quality products.
With regard to EFAs, you do not want to source EFAs from farm raised fish or from sources that have Mercury in the oils. If you do not have time to research a good EFA option for yourself, let me recommend the brand I take: Ultimate EFAs from Youngevity.
In correlation with the rest of the 90 essentials (like the BTTs), your body will use the vitamins and minerals in Beyond Osteo-fx to restore bone and joint health.
