Celia had always enjoyed an active lifestyle which involved long walks, swimming and aqua aerobics at her local swimming pool in Dublin. She thought that her ailments were perhaps just part of getting older until a conversation with her local pharmacy manager raised the question of whether her diet was providing all the nutrients her body required.
An active lifestyle and balanced diet is the first line of defence against ill health at all ages, but often it can be hard to get all the nutrients your body needs.
Research has shown we only derive one-third of the nutrients formerly available to us from our fruit, vegetables and meat as a result of intensive farming techniques stripping the soil of key minerals. It is estimated that as many as 80% of us suffer from a mineral deficiency.
Minerals interact with other and other nutrients such as vitamins to nourish your cells and support all aspects of your health. For those later in life, maintaining your mineral levels can help improve bone and joint quality, guard against nerve degeneration, and assist with energy levels and immune system function.
This was the case for Celia Clarke, who in her early seventies was suffering chronic, debilitating pain in her knees, insomnia and a lack of energy.
Celia decided to supplement her diet with a complete mineral supplement, choosing Cellnutrition Quinton Hypertonic because it provided the full spectrum of 78 organic minerals and trace elements in perfect balance with our bodies’ requirements.
“I had injections in my knees last year which were meant to last for 12 months but I had still been needing to take painkillers,” Celia explained. “I was taking paracetamol going to bed and if I was going out somewhere. I was taking at least four a day. Now I might only take two in a week. I can go days now without taking any paracetamol. I feel a lot better.”
Celia also found that restoring her mineral levels in a balanced and neutral way assisted with her insomnia, energy levels and other unexpected areas.
“Before I wouldn’t go very long sleeping, I’d wake up during the night and be wide awake. But now I’m getting a good six or seven hours without waking up,” she said. “It’s made a big difference knowing that I’m going to be able to sleep well.
“I also look a lot better, my skin and my nails, and my energy. I mean I go walking, swimming and I even go to aqua aerobics and I’m 71.
“The neighbours say to me, ‘Whatever your on, Celia, I’ll have some of it’.”
Cellnutrition Head of Science Roger Meacock said: “Having a balanced and complete intake of minerals and trace elements is important at all ages, but particularly later in life. When our food fails to deliver these important nutrients then it makes sense to supplement your diet so that your body has what it needs when it needs it.”
