Your nutritional Supplement Knowledge and Qualifications
Just wondering what your name is and how you've come across all this knowledge? I'm sorry I didn't have time to totally check out your website.
I take a lot of vitamins and supplements and want to make sure I'm taking something that will benefit me. I've read so many claims from so many companies and I don't know who to believe.
If you can fill me in a nutshell, I'd appreciate it. BTW, I'm a 55-year-old female, good health, but starting to see and feel the aging process.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
Hi Mickey, thanks for contacting me and for visiting nutritional-supplement-truths.
I'm pleased to hear that you understand the need to support your health with nutritional supplements. As you say, there is so much conflicting information out there that's it's near impossible to know who to believe.
As we age, particularly form the mid-forties onwards, the body starts to decline in its ability to produce critical compounds (for example L-Glutathione, enzymes and so on).
We also need to supplement (at any age) with specialized anti-aging nutrients which have unique properties that can slow down and normalize our aging process (which has been unnaturally and significantly increased due to the effects of living in the civilized / modern world).
An effective nutritional supplement MUST contain key specialized nutrients that can address the five fundamental causes of aging:
* Excessive Free Radicals
* Abnormal Methylation
* Chronic Inflammation
* DNA Degeneration
This, therefore treats and acts against premature aging (the reason why so many people are dying of debilitating degenerative disease these days at earlier and earlier ages). The human body is designed to die naturally without disease - and that should be the goal of all health conscious people. It is certainly my goal.
As you move through nutritional-supplement-truths you'll see that the nutritional health supplement which comes out on top in my comparisons and reviews of industry leading health supplements, is, in fact the ONLY ONE out there whose formula does contain all these special ingredients to tackle all four of the causes of aging. (It's also the nutritional health supplement that my family and I use).
My original career is that of a high-performance tennis coach. I worked on the professional tour and I am a level '3'/ 'High Performance' coach - the highest level possible. To reach this level requires a deep knowledge of the sports sciences including nutrition, anatomy, biology, energy systems etc.
Due to my background, I have always had a keen interest in health and consequently supplements as I have gotten older. I decided to take it upon myself to do a lot of research into the subject and then took up an executive position with a world class supplement manufacturer who were opening a new office in South East Asia.
Whenever visitors to my site ask me about my qualifications and the source of my supplement knowledge I always reply that while I don’t have any specialized degrees nor letters after my name, I do have:
* experience from working in the supplement industry
* access to highly qualified and world-renowned specialists in that industry
* access to more resources than most people
I'd also like to tell you that I’m not ‘conditioned’ to any specific preconceived ideas about health.
It is common for health ‘professionals’ to simply copy the mainstream or ‘accepted’ views about health and disease prevention despite the fact that clinical science and studies have, in many cases, proved these ideas to be NOT TRUE.
They continue to be promoted however usually because of financial influences and sometimes because of ignorance or laziness in researching the facts.
In case you'd like to go straight to the product page to read about the health supplement (the women's version) I'm referring to above (It's called 'TOTAL BALANCE'), the following link will take you straight there.
Total Balance Women's (Premium Version)
P.S. My mother used the Total Balance Women's 'Premium' version since 2000. At the time of writing this answer, mum was 80 years of age and played golf twice a week, did weekly'seniors' strength training at the gym and lawn bowls competitions twice a week.
Her cholesterol levels and high blood pressure significantly lowered, several months after starting with Total Balance.
However, it's always a question of budget when it comes to premium-grade health supplementation as it can be a significant ongoing expense, especially for retired people. (Mum for example only ever took a half daily dose of Total Balance!)
There is also the Standard version available (called Total Balance Women's - without the word 'Premium') which is cheaper but still light years ahead of any other nutritional health supplement in the market and it still contains all those specialized anti-aging ingredients which other brands can't afford to include.
Here are another 2 links if you would like to see and compare the differences in ingredients and benefits/costs between the various versions of Total Balance Total Balance.

As far as knowing who to trust, all I can suggest to you Mickey is to take the time to read through the supplement comparisons and reviews on my site. Everything you need to know and understand regarding comparing health supplements and knowing what to look for is laid out there.
Also please read my Evaluating Super Supplements page - this one lists all the important criteria you need to use when comparing and evaluating the quality of nutritional health supplements.
Mickey, Hope this answer helps you.
