Natural Stress Relief and Understanding Nutraceuticals

Vitamins and minerals are the spark plugs of life, but they are disappearing from our soils and the foods we eat due to over-farming, toxification and erosion. Most people are vitamin and mineral deficient from eating plants exposed to deadly pesticides and fertilizers. In addition, processed foods containing chemical additives and genetically modified organisms (GMO) destroy the body’s gut lining and weaken immunity by preventing the absorption of important elements in our food. It is critical to supplement our diets with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and probiotics daily to stay healthy.

In addition to common-sense measures, such as staying away from processed foods, getting adequate sleep and exercise, and eating as much organic plant-based foods as possible, Certified Naturopathic Practitioner Robab Taghizadeh, of Green Acres Market, in Oklahoma City, recommends four specific products for optimal health. First, she suggests Garden of Life’s multiple vitamin and mineral supplement, which contains raw and organic ingredients the body can easily absorb. Vitamin B is vital to health, and Taghizadeh suggests B Healthy by Emerald Labs, which contains all eight B vitamins needed for cell production, red blood cell formation, and hormone production and regulation.

Natural Calm Plus Calcium should be taken at night to aid sleep, help regulate blood pressure, reduce stress, and improve muscle, bone and brain health. Finally, Taghizadeh recommends Enzymedica Gold to help the body absorb complete nutrition from food.

Green Acres Market is located at 7301 S. Pennsylvania Ave., Ste. D, in OKC. For more information, visit
