90 Essential Nutrients

There are 90 Essential Nutrients required for optimal health and longevity.

Dr. Wallach discusses the 90 essential nutrients

For optimal health we need:

–        60 Minerals

–        16 Vitamins

–        12 Amino Acids

–         2 – 3 EFA’s

 “99% of American people are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease.”
U.S. Senate Document #264

You must give your body all the raw materials it requires to maintain and rebuild itself.  Raw materials are so vital to your health, but can be very hard to find.  Centuries of mining, farming, irrigation, and acid rain have eroded life giving minerals from our soil.  These mineral-deficient soils are then used to grow and cultivate our food.  Because of this, our food is lacking in essential minerals.  In fact Dr. Wallach has stated, “One sentence has killed more people than all the wars in American history… You get all the nutrition you need from the four basic food groups.”

All Youngevity products are formulated and designed with that in mind.  Our products are packed with the finest plant derived minerals available.  There are always imitations vying for your attention but when it comes to your health don’t accept any  imitations.  There are no quick-fixes, no silver bullets, and no shortcuts.

“The only way you can heal your body is to give it the 90 Essential Nutrients daily that it needs to rebuild and maintain itself over time.”  – Dr. Joel Wallach
