"Bioflavonoids are not vitamins and are not essential for life. Bioflavonoids are excellent antioxidants found in many plant foods. As potent antioxidants, they protect us from arterial damage and cancer formation. Parsley and elderberry have the highest content of bioflavonoids. COENZYME Q10 Coenzyme Q10 is not a vitamin, but plays many necessary biological roles in the body. It can be synthesized in the body and so it cannot be considered a vitamin. It is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant found in virtually all cell membranes. Coenzyme Q10 is needed for mitochondrial energy production."

"Many vegetables provide abundant calcium along with high levels of vitamins A, C, K and folate; please refer to Graph 9-1. Whole sesame seeds are one of the richest sources of calcium and also provide much-needed vitamin E and selenium. Nuts, seeds, and legumes are healthy sources of calcium. Tofu is often set with calcium and can be a very high source of dietary calcium."

"Certain vitamins and minerals play critical roles in bone mineralization and strength. In older men and women, long-term intakes of preformed vitamin A can be associated with increased risk of osteoporosis. Preformed vitamin A includes all forms except the beta-carotene form. Levels of only 5000 IU (1,500 meg) are enough to increase risk. This is well below the tolerable upper intake level, which is set at 10,000 IU (3000 meg) per day. In contrast, intake of the beta-carotene form of vitamin A is not associated with any increased risk of osteoporosis."

"Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body and include vitamins A, D, E, and K. Water-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body and include vitamin C and the whole series of B vitamins. Water-soluble vitamins are excreted in the urine when the body receives an excess amount, whether from foods or pills. The fat-soluble vitamins are stored, and toxicity can result if excess amounts are consumed. Let's take a moment to very briefly review the thirteen known vitamins. RDAs for each are listed in Table 17 (see page 186-87)."

"It is important to note that the ability of the body to burn nutrients for energy may be limited by deficiencies of certain vitamins and minerals. Much of the modern diet is made from refined grains such as white flour. White flour is commonly found in breads and noodles. White flour is routinely enriched with certain nutrients. Other nutrients are reduced in the refining of the grains, and they are not added back in the enrichment process. Enrichment of white flour normally consists of adding thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, and iron to the refined grains."

"As its name states, cod liver oil comes from the liver of the cod, an organ that accumulates high amounts of vitamins A and D. Normally, you would welcome these vitamins. (In fact, that's why parents used to dose their kids with cod liver oil. When these vitamins were synthesized and became available on the market, this practice came to a halt.) But vitamins A and D are fat-soluble, which means that whatever you don't use will be stored in your tissues. In order to get enough EPA and DHA from cod liver oil, you would exceed the recommended doses of these vitamins."

"Those with cognitive deficiencies were more likely to have avoided high intake of vitamins E and C. Vitamin E has emerged, barely, as beneficial in decreasing the likelihood of dementia in two other cohort studies. Vitamin C and other antioxidants remain rumors in this regard. However, beta carotene, vitamins C and E, and zinc may slow progression of age-related macular degeneration, the most prevalent cause of irreversible blindness in developed countries. That has emerged from analysis of a number of cohorts, including the Rotterdam study."

"I usually don't recommend "one a day" types of vitamins because they contain so many vitamins and minerals, they are packed very tightly to enable one to swallow them. If they did not, people would choke on them. If your stomach acid and digestion are not good, you will not be able to properly break down the tablet. Take a liquid form or a multi that you have to take in divided doses throughout the day. Probiotics Every person has billions of bacteria in their intestinal tract. Most bacteria are beneficial and maintain health."
- Heather Caruso, Your Drug-Free Guide to Digestive Health (Get the book.)

"VITAMINS Most nutritionists feel that the foods we typically eat contain enough of the thirteen known vitamins. Many people, however, feel that swallowing a multivitamin tablet or pill daily provides extra insurance. I've never heard anyone say this could do any harm, and many authorities, especially in private, say it's probably a good idea. There are basically two types of vitamins, the fat-soluble and the water-soluble kinds. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body and include vitamins A, D, E, and K."

"I should mention that several vitamins are anything but harmless if taken in excess, notably vitamins D and A. There is a reason why the average person receives no benefit from calcium and vitamin D supplements. Our endocrine system is highly committed to monitoring the blood level of calcium and maintaining it just at our personal set point, and our calcium absorption is tightly controlled to that end. The mechanism is elegant."
- Nortin M. Hadler MD, Worried Sick: A Prescription for Health in an Overtreated America (Get the book.)

"While FDA involvement would spuriously skyrocket the cost of many vitamins and supplements and place them outside the affordability range for many people, it is not easy to know which products are worthy of your financial investments at present. This darkens the cloak of suspicion for many physicians. For now, I can only advise you on the products I've tested and found to be of high quality, and hope for some standards to be developed in the future."
- Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., The Sinatra Solution Metabolic Cardiology (Get the book.)

"Despite its name, vitamin D isn't actually a vitamin. vitamins are organic substances you get from dietary sources; vitamin D is produced by your body. When your skin is exposed to UVB (ultraviolet B) radiation from the sun, vitamin D is synthesized. Next, this fat-soluble vitamin is transported to the liver and kidneys, where it's converted into the forms your tissues require. It becomes activated vitamin D, which fits its name because it has now turned into an active participant in your body workings."

"Remember, you may be getting additional D from daily vitamins or mineral supplements, and you need to include that in your calculated daily dose. CALCULATING YOUR VITAMIN D DOSE FROM BLOOD LEVEL Amount of Vitamin D in IU/Lb."

"The green base has more fiber, minerals (magnesium, potassium, calcium), antioxidants, vitamins (folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin K), and a whole host of nutrients. All of this comes in a package that has almost no calories and generates antacid to alkalinize your metabolism. You can serve all of the meat entrees and egg dishes on a bed of greens. Let the juices and flavors from the meat and vegetables serve as dressing rather than separating the greens into a salad bowl. The interaction of textures and flavors makes the food interesting and tasty."

"If a sufficient quantity of friendly bacteria is not present in the bowel, the body cannot manufacture certain enzymes, vitamins, and antibiotics. Putrefaction, or rot and stagnation, then occurs in the colon. All disease symptoms can be traced to these problems. A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF DIGESTION AND ELIMINATION Absorption takes place mostly in the small intestine where the broken-down food substances are absorbed through the intestinal wall and sent to the liver to be processed."

"What Are vitamins? - The term vitamin applies only to a specific group of organic :ompounds—those composed of chains of carbon, hydrogen, and ixygen in various arrangements, augmented sometimes with nitro-;en, sulfur, phosphorus, and occasional other chemical elements— lat medical science has shown are necessary to life. For us to say lat a substance is a vitamin, it has to be something your body re-uires for good health and normal functioning—in other words, ou've got to take it into your diet regularly in some amount, how-/er small, or you will become ill."
- Dr. Mary Dan Eades, The Doctor's Complete Guide to vitamins and Minerals (Get the book.)

"A: Take vitamins in the morning right after you eat. Your body absorbs minerals best with a meal. Protein, carbs, and fats all enhance calcium and magnesium absorption. Nutrients come from food, so they're best absorbed with food. Let your physician know that you're supplementing because some mineral supplements can interfere with absorption of osteoporosis drugs, thyroid supplements, and antibiotics. Q: Will I lose weight on the Vitamin D Cure? A: You probably will lose weight because you'll have a normal vitamin D level, which is associated with a lower risk of obesity."

"Vegetarian diets offer a number of nutritional benefits, including lower levels of saturated fat, cholesterol, and animal protein as well as higher levels of carbohydrates, fiber, magnesium, potassium, folate, and antioxidants such as vitamins C and E and phytochem-icals. ... It is the position of the American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada that appropriately planned vegetarian diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases."

"Being rich in amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements is one of the key reasons why kelp is known as a great promoter of glandular health, especially for the pituitary, adrenal, and thyroid glands. Kelp was first used medicinally to treat enlarged thyroid glands. Physicians didn't know why kelp was effective, until it was discovered that it was exceptionally rich in iodine and that enlarged thyroids were caused by iodine deficiency. Because iodine stimulates the thyroid gland, which controls the metabolism, it was noted that those who took iodine lost weight more easily."

"In 1997 an estimated four out of every ten adults included some form of alternative therapy, such as herbal medicine, massage, and vitamins, in their med- 5 ical or health care. Other startling revelations have shown that consumers make more visits to alternative medicine practitioners like chiropractors, naturopaths, and massage therapists, than they do to their primary-care physicians. What is driving even our most conservative patients to look at other forms of therapies?"

"They are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E. The minerals in sea vegetables are found in similar ratios to those in the blood. Sea vegetables produce substantial amounts of proteins, complex carbohydrates, carotenes, and chlorophyll. For example, dulse and nori have 21.5 and 28.4 grams of protein, respectively, per hundred grams of sea vegetable. They have approximately 2^4.5 percent fat, and 40?5 grams of carbohydrate per hundred grams of sea vegetable. Alaria (essentially identical to the Japanese wakame) and kelp are extremely high in calcium."

"But even on the small scale of a minot burn, experts say, it's important to get enough of the proper nutrients—especially vitamins A, C and E and the mineral zinc—to promote healing. "There isn't scientific evidence to back up the need for a special diet for people with nonsignificant burns," says Randolph Wong, M.D., a plastic and teconstructive surgeon and director of the burn unit at Straub Clinic and Hospital in Honolulu. "But based on common sense, I don't discount the benefits of increasing your intakes of these nutrients to be sure that you're getting the Daily Values."

"Then I have included a discussion about what vitamins and minerals are and how they generally work in the body. I have tried to keep the science and chemistry of it to a minimum, which may bore the chemistry buffs to tears, but should be enough to give readers of a less chemically scientific bent a clearer understanding of what's going on. Sections on nutraceuticals, antioxidants, free radicals, eicosonoids, and the importance of macronutrients on the effect of the micronutrients should bring you up to speed on the hotbeds of current research areas."
