Emerson has been the premier supplier of quality supplements and herbs to practitioners for over 30 years. We can now make these available directly to you.

Every day, your body produces skin, muscle, bone. It churns out rich red blood that carries nutrients and oxygen to remote outposts, and it sends nerve signals skipping along thousands of miles of brain and body pathways. It also formulates chemical messengers that shuttle from one organ to another, issuing the instructions that help sustain your life.

But to do all this, your body requires some raw materials. These include at least 30 vitamins, minerals, and dietary components that your body needs but cannot manufacture on its own in sufficient amounts.

Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients because they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.

It would be great if we could get all the essential nutrients our bodies need from our daily food intake. Unfortunately our processed foods and busy life style can leave our bodies running on empty. We need to build our health with good quality supplements and vitamins specific to our body’s needs. If you take medications you need to know how those medication can affect your body’s function for example:

  • Antibiotics can deplete the B complex vitamins and kill your guts normal organisms.
  • Acid suppressing medications deplete B2 and bone magnesium and calcium
  • Birth control pills deplete folic acid, B6, magnesium
  • Blood pressure medications deplete zinc, potassium, magnesium and CoQ10
  • Corticosteroids deplete calcium magnesium and lowers immunity
  • Cholesterol Lowering Medications deplete Vitamins A, E, D, K as well as CoQ10
  • Diabetes medications deplete Folic acid and B12

Together vitamins, minerals and supplements work to keep your eyes, skin, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and nervous system in good repair. Here are some of the other essential roles these vitamins play:

  • Build bones: Bone formation would be impossible without vitamins A, D, and K.
  • Protect vision: Vitamin A also helps keep cells healthy and protects your vision.
  • Important partners: Without vitamin E, your body would have difficulty absorbing and storing vitamin A. Vitamin E also acts as an antioxidant (a compound that helps protect the body against damage from unstable molecules).

Talk with qualified practitioner to determine what you need, then buy from a high quality company. We can help. Call us at 401-397-6333 or to https://wellevate.me/opus-total-health. Opus Total Health in partnership with Emerson Ecologic.
