Guide to Healthy Living

Many people are in search for a healthy lifestyle, but what are really
the essentials for “good health”?
How do you achieve overall wellbeig and a healthy life?
When you have a closer look at the concept, it all boils down to the
following three 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.
You probably heard it before: “You are what you eat.”
Although I like a more accurate is better to say:
“You are what you can get out of your food.”

Good nutrition is fundamental for good health.
The human body is a complex system that requires a full spectrum
of nutrients for optimal health.

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

Wen 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 are 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 accept 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.

It is not all about nutrition, neither is it all about exercise.
A balanced lifestyle is the key.
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.

Another important factor is proper pace. Don’t overdo it.
You can’t force things to happen at once.
The secret to good health is consistency and steadiness.
The right amount of food and exercise regularly.

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.
