Are vitamins helpful?
According to a report on Adelaide Channel 9, vitamins do nothing, are a waste of money, and some herbal supplements cause liver damage. As usual, Channel 9 neglected to get the real story, did not read the thousands of studies proving the benefits of vitamins, or allow the alternative health industry to respond. Just one example: Vitamin D3 at a healthy dose of 5000 IU (5 times the normal dose) can reduce risk of cancer between 50% and 90% and high-dose vitamin C can also help significantly. If a drug company developed a drug to perform as well, they would charge a fortune and want a Nobel Prize for inventing it!
LeanMachine has not had a cold or flu or even a headache since adopting a Paleo-style diet and a host of vitamin and mineral supplements in the year 2010 at age 63. Now at age 72, LeanMachine is healthier, stronger with more energy than at any time in his life, all allergies gone and never gets sick!
Back to Channel 9 and liver damage - they neglected to mention that most people on the liver transplant waiting list are there because of Paracetamol overdose, and many cancer patients suffer because of Paracetamol, causing destruction of natural L-Glutathione (the "Master Antioxidant"), our main defense mechanism against cancer and most other diseases. Obviously another fake story by Big Pharma to retain their profits and keep people sick, and shame on Channel 9 to be a part of this!
Almost every one of our 60 to 100 trillion body cells has Vitamin D3 receptors, and D3 is essential for mineral absorption, bone building, and disease prevention.

Flavonoids - we Cannot do Without them

By LeanMachine

What Are Flavonoids?

Also called phytonutrients, flavonoids are a class of polyphenols.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi (Nobel Prize-winning physiologist), who also first isolated vitamin C, carried out work in the 1930's identifying different flavonoids and properties, giving flavonoids the classification of "Vitamin P".
Flavonoids are highly concentrated nutritional elements, essential for correct functioning of every cell and organ in the body.
Flavonoids protect plants fungi, pests, bacteria and other pathogens, as well as giving plants their colour, flavour and scent.
About 5,000 different flavonoids have been identified so far, each providing important functions in the body.
The most important functions:
1. Essential for absorption of Vitamin C, responsible for tissue growth and repair.
2. Essential for maintenance of bones and teeth.
3. Essential for production of collagen, along with Vitamin C for skin, muscles, blood vessels, immunity etc.
4. Essential for the brain and the cardiovascular system.
5. Essential for resistance to disease and cancer.


Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants.
Oxidative damage from free radicals is a big de-generative health issue in our toxic world.
Processed foods contain little or no flavonoids.
Cooking destroys most of Vitamins C, B1, B5, B6 and B9 (folate), and Flavonoids are damaged as well. Oxygen also degrades vitamins and flavonoids.
Vegetables that are cut or juiced should be stored in airtight containers in the refrigerator, but cutting, cooking or juicing is best carried out as close as possible to meal time, and either no cooking (salads) or lightly steaming is best. High-temperature cooking is best avoided altogether.
Flavonoids help destroy free radicals, improving health and preventing disease, including cancers.
