Also, please remember to take your ESSENTIAL fatty acids, Omega 6 and especially Omega 3. Fish oil is the most popular method but some claim that the processing of the oil has negative side effects.
I use organic hemp oil. Contains a near perfect 3 to 1 ratio.
Theres a reason why they call these ESSENTIAL. If you fail to take them, something in your system WILL go wrong.

And how is it that antioxidants taken at sufficient amounts according to some, can act as oxidants, contributing to cancer and heart disease?
Micronutrient supplements are a huge multi-billion-dollar industry. Exaggerated claims and aggressive advertising characterize the marketing of these products. Often they are marketed as a natural, non-pharmaceutical solution to healthcare, but they have to be artificially manufactured, just like any other pharmaceutical product. Moreover, despite the anti-drug company approach of advertising for these products, some of the big drug companies, such as GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, are also sellers of multivitamin pills, with substantial markets in developing countries like India. Micronutrients are cheap and easy to manufacture and very easy to sell at a high price, hence the size of the industry.

This is awesome information, Auran. I did not go into the nutritional aspects in my thread, as it had to do more with the whole conspiracy angle of cholesterol, but Vitamin C is exceptionally important for us. The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) touted by the FDA is considered too low by many experts.
Vitamin C is water soluble, and so tends to disappear from the fruits and veggies that sit too long in the store. Your best bet is to get it right from the source as soon as it is picked....unfortunately, not going to happen in most places on earth.
Therefore, supplements are one's best bet. I like Ester-C, as the cheaper varieties tend to make me sick to my stomach.
One time I had an ER doctor tell me that he takes 12,000 mg of C per day, so as not to get sick with every germ he comes in contact with. Excess C is excreted out in the urine.
I think they try to downplay vitamins for two reasons: Firstly, because they don't like people taking their own health into their hands. Secondly, I'm thinking that Codex Alimentarius will come into play, in which all vitamins will be considered a drug that has to be prescribed by a doctor. We all realize that, when that happens, we'll pay terribly high prices for basic vitamins, and everybody will have to run to the doc to get some. What a racket!

Oh, and buy "liposomal" vitamin C. Absorbs much better. Also, be careful with large doses. That can cause a relative imbalance of vitamin C and copper...
... Look into the Mittleider Method of growing vegitables...
Before I forget... there's a doctor in East Texas that is helping people with heart failure with Ubiquinol. Google it for the details. You can kiss Ubiquinol (the more absorbable kind of C-Q10) goodby too if big pharma and CODEX gets its way.

Of course "Doctor Rath" (no connection or overtures to official medicine there, I guess) has never sold any product now, has he?
Maybe his VitaCell products were just for charity?
He's a con-artist, that's all.
He's killed people indirectly with quackery, and has intimidated even fellow alternative healers with lawsuits.
