You probably heard it before: "You are what you eat."
Although it is better to say: "You are what you can get out of your food."
There are three basic components, which are crucial for healthy living.
They are:
*1 Good Nutrition
*2 Regular Exercise
*3 High-Quality Nutritional Supplementation

I will describe in more detail the above three components for
healthy living.

First of all: Good Nutrition.
What do we mean by "good nutrition"?
Good nutrition means: eating the right food that contains all the right
carbohydrates, protein, fat, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements,
based on your body type.

When your metabolism is slow, you belong to the "Endomorphs" group of
people. You are naturally overweight, you gain fat and retain water easily.
If you belong to this group, you need:
45% Carbohydrates
35% Protein
20% Fat

When your metabolism is higher, you belong to the "Mesomorphs" group of
people. You are naturally muscular and have little or no body fat.
If you belong to this group, you need:
50% Carbohydrates
30% Protein
20% Fat

The group with the highest metabolism is called the "Ectomorphs".
You are generally skinny, could eat anything without gaining any weight.
If you belong to this group, you need:
55% Carbohydrates
25% Protein
20% Fat

A second factor that determines good nutrition is our body's ability to
absorb the nutrients from the food that we eat.
The nutrients have to be in a form that the cells can except them, and the
cells have to be in optimum condition to be able to absorb the nutrients.

That is one of the reasons most nutritional supplements miss the mark,
they don't address the cellular condition of the body.

We also need a sufficient amount of antioxidants, to counteract the
formation of free radicals, caused by our stressful lifestyle,
pollution in air and water and malnutrition.
Oxidative stress has shown to be the root cause of over 70 chronic
degenerative diseases.

The second component for healthy living is Regular Exercise,
At least three times per week.
Aerobics, jogging, swimming, cycling and also include weight
lifting in your exercise routine, which is important for maintaining
a healthy bone structure.

The third component is a high-quality nutritional supplement.
As I mentioned earlier, most supplements do not address the
cellular condition of your body.

Even worse, many are in a form that is unacceptable for the cells
themselves and don't contain biological available substances
that are useful for the cells in your body.

High-quality supplements are bio-available, well balanced,
preferable manufactured according to pharmaceutical standards
and potency guaranteed.

Hopefully, people who are overweight, don't exercise, or suffer from
any degenerative diseases will take note of these three components,
which are essential for healthy living.
