Customized Nutrition for Combating Toxins
It won’t be wrong to say that this world is full of toxins to which we are almost continuously exposed. They come either from outside factors like pollution, radiation, smoke, etc or from inside our body i.e. from the wear and tear of tissues with oxygen included in the processes. These toxins bring about generation of free radicals which are oxidant products. Actually generation of free radicals is a natural process and about 2% of cells can be harmed and give rise to free radicals in presence of normal levels of oxygen in blood.
Free radicals produced in normal amounts are useful actually in combating with infections occurring in the body because of micro-organisms. However, when this level goes beyond normal, free radicals can be extremely harmful for the body. In such a case, a customized nutrition plan as conceptualized by Selective Wellness LLC is the most ideal solution.
How Body Removes Free Radicals?
As a natural process, our body removes excessive free radicals by production or intake of antioxidants. Antioxidants are helpful in eliminating toxins and maintaining normal functions of various systems and organs of our body. Amongst them, vitamins C and E are considered to be the most powerful that are comprised in our normal diet. However, if we suffer from poor digestion or even inadequacy of these contents in our food, the amount of antioxidants generated by our body may not be enough to fight with the oxidants (free radicals). This makes the person more prone to diseases like skin diseases, heart problems and even some types of cancer.
Antioxidants act by producing electrons that bind to the free radicals and nullify their harmful effect. As a result they cannot damage cells and tissues.
Low Levels of Antioxidants
Poor food habits result into inadequate amounts of antioxidants created inside the body. Eventually surplus production of free radicals causes harm. In such a condition, treatments should be targeted towards increasing amounts of antioxidants in blood to protect the cells and restore normal functioning. And this is done by customized nutritional supplements.
An interesting fact is our body absorbs not all but just about 80% of ingested vitamin C. in that case, if amount of antioxidants is already poor in our diet, amount available to the body will be still less. More interestingly over-supplementation of vitamin C actually can give rise to lesser absorption and may end up in its excretion through urine. Therefore, customized nutritional supplements suffice just that which is required.
Customized Supplements as Antioxidants
The best way to compensate for the inadequate antioxidant levels in the body is to consume customized nutritional supplements meant for individual patients. Selective Wellness LLC provides these nutritional supplements of highest quality.
At Selective Wellness LLC certain tests are done to find out exactly which and what amount of supplements are needed by a particular patient. A 24-hour urine test is done which can find out the type of antioxidants that are insufficient within the body and should be replaced. The test is uncomplicated and just requires the patients to get their urine samples of 24 hours. This sample is then examined to evaluate the amount and types of antioxidants that are deficient or in normal quantity. The supplements provided are helpful in curing and even preventing diseases like gum disease, tonsillitis, joint pains and other such problems.
