Minimum

or

Optimum

Could it be that I am only provided with the minimum instead of the optimum?

The short answer up front is that minimal care is much more common than you think.
This article wants to give you context and experience and encourage you to find your own answer to these two questions.

Are you satisfied with the minimum when it comes to providing your body with vitamins?
Don’t want to make up your own mind about whether you have enough vitamins? Then you’re in the wrong place.

Or are you curious and interested in how your health might feel when you are optimally supplied with vitamins?
Then I have something for you.

To be courageous in admitting own experiences and to deal with new knowledge

Oscar Wilde said, “Life, that is the rarest thing in the world. Most people merely exist.” Written 150 years ago, the quote is nevertheless red-hot and applies especially to the good supply of nutrients.

Many have already realized that not all vegetables are the same and are confronted with the uncomfortable question: How do I get my nutrients now? When it then comes to dietary supplements, people like to discuss and philosophize. “No, too unnatural,” is often the common response to the question of whether they are suitable for filling gaps in supply.

My answer to that instead is: Try it out. Don’t let the media or society tell you what is good and what is bad, what is natural and what is not. You see, even fruits and vegetables have hardly retained anything of their original naturalness, although they are delicious and enjoy the image of a vitamin bomb. If journalists or critical consumers had not questioned facts, we would now know nothing about many things about which we now shake our heads as a matter of course.

The worst thing is and remains: Not trying anything new and sticking with the old unquestioned opinions . To shake one’s head after the scandalous reportage, but then not to act. This is displacement at the expense of your own health. Allowing your own experiences and trying new things can change things for the better. Even with dietary supplements, I therefore advise personal fact-checking through experience rather than not questioning outdated beliefs. And as with all other things, of course, to trust your senses. You might be saying: Well, of course he sees it that way, because he also wants to sell his products. It’s a nice side benefit but not the main focus of mine. Do you know from which motive my 6 products were created? Because I have searched for outstanding vital substances to improve my own health and have not found any.
So I started to develop them myself. Read more here.

We read the recommendations of the German Nutrition Society(DGE) and consume the daily amount of nutrients recommended as a minimum with a clear conscience. In the most unfortunate case, this fixed value is also confused with a recommended optimum. A fatal misunderstanding for our health. Anyone who takes a closer look at healthy living inevitably asks the question: Is this given minimum in any way sufficient? And do I still need supplements if I go over the minimum? These are valid and proper questions that I want to address in this post.

Absolute minimum under ideal conditions

The RDA value is the abbreviation for “Recommended Daily Allowance” and sets a recommended daily maximum amount for essential nutrients. This value differs to some extent even within the EU from country to country. In practice, the RDA says nothing about the amount of vitamins and trace elements we need daily to stay healthy and increase our life expectancy – no, the RDA indicates the minimum standard necessary to avoid developing deficiency symptoms as a young and healthy person. And that’s just in theory. For this amount to be sufficient, this young person should not have any stress, do any sports and never drink alcohol or smoke. And he would have to eat 5 servings of vegetables a day. This may seem unrealistic to you, and in fact it is. This is because the reference study to which, for example, the recommended minimum intake of vitamin C refers, is based on precisely these initial conditions.

The RDA-relevant determination of the minimum amount of vitamin C was carried out by supplying seven men with vitamin C under clinical conditions – that is, without work, typical daily routine, etc. – Vitamin C was supplied to seven men. On the basis of their urine excretions, the saturation was determined and thus a reference value for healthy men could be established. For women, on the other hand, this value was only calculated. Elderly and sick people were not studied, nor were the study participants under normal living conditions.

In other words, for us as people with modern day lives, with average levels of stress, occasional alcohol consumption and possibly still physical ailments, that value doesn’t mean a thing. On the contrary. Even if we wanted to settle for the minimum, the standard given would not be sufficientfor this.

Stress increases nutrient requirements: Our body is dependent on the supply

Whether vitamins or trace elements: every form of stress increases the physical need for nutrients. Nothing else we have with water. If we jog 5 km at a steady pace, we have a noticeably increased need for fluids even then than if our body is working on the back burner. The intake of medication and alcohol or environmental and metabolic stress, stress, age as well as general mental turmoil – all this leads to an additional demand, which is not mapped anywhere with the RDA. But an illustration would also hardly be possible. No study in the world could produce a representative cross-section of the population that would reveal the needs of each individual.
As demanding as this may sound, everyone is well advised to take care of their own optimal nutrient intake. The orientation towards fixed values does not help.

With animals it looks like this: When the brown hare sprints ahead of the fox at 70 km/h, it is using its resources just as we do when we are at peak physical or mental performance. The difference here is that the brown hare produces the vitamin C it needs in its own body. Once he has exhausted himself, his need increases. Production is being boosted. Centuries before, we humans could do the same. This function has been lost to us over time. Today, when deficiency symptoms appear, people go to their family doctor, who in turn usually prescribes something for the symptoms.

So unlike most mammals, we humans have to find a way to provide our bodies with the nutrients they need that they can’t make themselves. If we don’t, he will probably go through this deficiency for some time without us noticing, depending on his age and condition. We’ll still be able to go to work and do occasional sports, and we’ll also be able to cure the odd infection in the winter. All this will be possible for a while without the optimal care. After months, years or decades, however, our cells will no longer be able to withstand the everyday stresses and environmental influences. This opens the way for chronic and almost all known diseases of civilization.
