Intro to Nutrition #48: NUTRITION FACTS & How Nutrients Work Together. Health Coach WEIGHT LOSS TIPS


Whenever you seek to correct a vitamin or
mineral deficiency, you must recognize that nutrients work synergistically. This means
that there is a cooperative action between certain vitamins and minerals, which work
as catalysts, promoting the absorption and assimilation of other vitamins and minerals.
Correcting a deficiency in one vitamin or mineral requires the addition of others, not
simply replacement of the one in which you are deficient. This is why taking a single
vitamin or mineral may be ineffective, or even dangerous, and why a balanced vitamin
and mineral planning should always be taken in addition to any single supplements. The
best way to avoid interfering with the natural synergies among nutrients is to take supplements
with meals, unless otherwise instructed. Food stimulates the natural digestive processes
and contains natural nutrients to facilitate the digestion and absorption of nutrients
from food and supplements. There are certain cautions that you should consider when taking
supplements. Antibiotics interfere with the natural balance of normal intestinal flora
needed to produce vitamin K, which is necessary for normal blood clotting and maintaining
the integrity of bones. Too much coffee or caffeine-containing soft drinks can interfere
with calcium metabolism. Aspirin can irritate the gastrointestinal tract and can also interfere
with the absorption of B vitamins and vitamin C. If you are taking aspirin daily for cardiovascular
health, studies have shown that baby aspirin is less irritating to the gastrointestinal
tract, and works just as well as ordinary aspirin, but check with your healthcare provider
first.
