body is an amazing operation.
It will work to produce energy and will repair
the body works on either, it needs nutrients to do it.
Nutrients are what the body uses – just like
your car runs on oxygen and gasoline – your body
runs on oxygen and nutrients.
There are forty
nutrients that cannot be made in the body. They are
essential fatty acids, 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, and
10 amino acids. These forty nutrients are the body's
requirements. From these our bodies synthesize an
estimated 10,000 different compounds essential to the
maintenance of health.
what happens when the body gets injured or sick?
We can take two examples of this. Your body has
damaged nerves. Your
body has an infection.
the body has damaged nerves, it wants to fix that
first. The body always has a priority of things to
nerves interrupt the communication signals of the
body. It is thus a priority. For example, how does the
body get a muscle
to move? It sends a message through the motor nerves.
What if that nerve is damaged? The message doesn’t
The body needs specific B vitamins in order to repair
the nerves. So,
all the B vitamins that are in your food or in
supplementation will go to fixing the nerves first.
What if your body is using all of these
vitamins to fix the nerves? It will create a
deficiency for the rest of the body’s needs.
It will create problems for other parts of the
body that also needs B vitamins to function well.
if you have an infection? Your
body needs vitamin C. The body will address the
infection first; it is the biggest threat to the
body’s survival. If
you don’t get enough, and the body is using all the
vitamin C in food or supplementation to address this
infection, other parts of your body that need the
vitamin C will suffer.

the rest of the body to function properly.

side effects are the various nutritional deficiencies
that the body gets because all the vitamins it needs
go to repairing the body.
Chronically, if you use up all the B vitamins
needed to repair the nerves (the body might not even
be doing a good job of this as it really needs a lot
of B to repair nerves), the body will be deficient in
B vitamins for its other functions – a healthy
cardiovascular system, energy production, digestion,
health gums and teeth – the list goes on.

If you are exceeding what your body needs, it
will flush it from the body.
But if it’s not getting enough, your body
will suffer. But
beware of not taking enough of a much needed vitamin. That
includes you diet as well as any supplementation.
