YOU and Healthy Cells for Healthy Aging
The following information is from Livestrong.com – and I have gained
a lot of good health information from this website.
Your cells depend on adequate intakes of several nutrients to stay
healthy. These nutrients come from a variety of foods in each
food group, and the best way to be sue you are getting the daily
recommendations for each is to eat a well-balanced diet. You
may also want to include a supplement if you are having trouble
plays a large role in cell growth and repairs damaged cells as
well. Most Americans get enough protein every day, but a
deficiency could result in health problems having to do with your
skin, hair, nails, blood, organs, and muscles.
Make sure you know how much protein your body needs a day.

could result in feelings of weakness or fatigue, otherwise know as
anemia. Foods rich in iron include beans, beef, chicken, shrimp,
peas, dried fruit, etc.
Make sure you take enough iron each day.

animal foods. Adults need 2.4 mcg. Of this B vitamin a day
Make sure you are getting enough B-12 every day
Are present in many foods, and they fight the free radical damage
that occurs through exposure to environmental toxins and a poor
diet, both of which damage cells and increase the risk of health
problems that include cancer and heart disease.
I have written a Blog on the soil and depletion of nutrients in the
soil now, so it is me believe, and I do daily, is take a quality,
prescription grade vitamins and supplements which I get at an only
local pharmacy or from quality producers. I would never, ever buy
anything at a corner drug store or a grocery store that they called
vitamins or supplements.
The website: eatright.org has some good information on how to
keep YOUR cells happy and aging healthy. It says:
Our bodies are battlegrounds against infection and diseases.
Normal body functions, such as breathing or physical activity, and
other lifestyle habits produce substances called free radicals that
attack healthy cells. When these healthy cells are weakened,
they are more susceptible to cardiovascular disease and certain
types of cancers. Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E and
carotenoids, which include beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein –
help protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals.
