You got it. The supplement industry and muscle heads have society thinking we need an endless amount of protein. This macronutrient should  comprise 5 to 15% of our daily caloric intake. It’s complex carbohydrates which fuels our bodies first. Overdosing on protein can possibly lead to rouge cancer cells developing from cellular division (when tissue splits and divides) and can pull calcium from the bones since the amino acid breakdown requires a mineral — Calcium — for neutralization. This is long thought to be one of the reasons why America (and other high consumption dairy and meat eating countries) have high cases of Osteoporosis.

Vitamix blenders are like the Jeep Wranglers of the blending world. They do what they do best because of their powerful motors, unique blades and various spin cycle modes such as Hot Soups and Purée. We’ve made hummus to avocado puddings in our Vitamix 750 Series. You will spend more for the quality, but we don’t mind investing in our health. Cancer and Diabetes are far more expensive.

Metals of Concern in Common Multivitamins

Dietary supplements are big business: Forty percent of Americans take vitamin and mineral supplements, contributing to a $30-billion-a- year industry. However, many are unaware that these products can contain more than twice the amount of iron and copper recommended for an entire day. Research studies have linked these trace metals to brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease. While trace metals are necessary for health— iron for hemoglobin and copper for enzyme function—they are double-edged swords, becoming toxic, or even fatal in excess. At even modestly elevated levels, iron and copper have been associated with impaired cognition, and both end up in the brain of people with Alzheimer’s disease. A study of more than 1,450 people in San Diego showed that those who perform highest on cognition tests have the lowest levels of copper and iron in their bloodstream. [Read more…]
