What is a vitamin?
The term “vitamin” was introduced in 1912 by a Polish scientist, Casimir Funk, to describe natural substances in food that are essential for life.
Can’t we get all of the vitamins we need in our food?
No. Independent studies conducted in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and many other countries show that the nutrient content of our food has fallen substantially over the past few decades.
Isn’t the RDA sufficient?
No. There is a large body of evidence showing that many vitamins and minerals - when consumed at higher than Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) levels - are beneficial in maintaining optimum health and preventing the development of chronic diseases.
What is Cellular Health?
The concept of Cellular Health is based upon the principle that health is determined at the level of the billions of cells that make up the human body.
What is nutrient synergy?
The concept of nutrient synergy maximizes the health benefits of micronutrients because of the discovery that they work best in "teams".
What are the advantages of the Cellular Health approach over conventional medicine?
The Cellular Health approach is based upon the discovery that health and disease are not determined at the level of organs but at the level of the billions of cells that make up these organs and the human body.
Is there any research to support the Cellular Health approach?
Yes! The website of the Dr. Rath Health Foundation includes details of numerous important Clinical Studies that document the paramount importance of micronutrients and nutrition in maintaining optimum health.
Why did we not hear about these breakthroughs before?
Therapies based upon the use of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other naturally-occurring essential nutrients are of no interest to the pharmaceutical industry, because they cannot be patented.
