Aside from the formal concept of replacing what may be missing in the diet, food supplements offer certain other advantages. It’s possible to perform a kind of targeted supplementation protocol where you would identify systems of the body that affect all the other systems in a beneficial way, and support those with the idea that everything will improve.
Furthermore, because everyone’s rate of ageing is different, if you can support the systems of the body well enough, you may be able to slow the rate of ageing.
Supporting Brain Function
Based on this idea, you could for instance choose to support brain function. Without brain function, life isn’t worth living. However, by assuring brain function, you put in the foundation for an anti-ageing program for all the other systems of the body including the immune system, the muscular system, the bones, the locomotor system, the nervous system and the excretory system, etc.
An interesting feature of the definition of brain function is that it includes both cognitive and emotional aspects. When it comes to preventing the serious effects of stress on the system, cognitive aspects and emotional aspects of brain function are absolutely important.
A very good example of a combination of products that operates in this way is Tony Quinn Educohealth Pantac with Mind Focus. Not only does it assist cognitive health, including both mental energy and affective (emotional) health, but it also directly supports the anti-stress hormones in the body. You are welcome to ask us how this combination will work for you.
Strangely, because the systems are so intertwined, if you choose to improve anyone system, all the others almost inevitably will benefit also. As another example, if you decided to improve the skin-collagen system with Tony Quinn Educohealth Radiance C, benefiting your appearance by supporting the skin from the inside, then all the other systems will benefit from an improvement in collagen status and indeed from protein formation in general.
Supplements & Excercise
The usual advice we offer at Tony Quinn Educohealth is to exercise several times a week with weights and take food supplements suitable for such a training program to get into good shape. This advice, if carried out, would have a massive effect on every system of the body just as described above.
But even if you, as a customer, decide only to go for a narrower area of self-improvement, then be assured that because of the type of supplements we are recommending in these areas, there will be benefits in all areas of your life. This is because the supplements are based on an understanding of basic biochemistry and nutrition, and how the systems of the body are interconnected.
