Do you get summer muscle cramps, sun burned, canker sores?
Summer Muscle Cramps, Canker sores, being sunburned, etc are often because of a lack of Vitamin F.
Standard Process is one of the only places you can get Vitamin F not found in whole foods. Cataplex F is different than essential fatty acids.
Cataplex F is needed to ionize the calcium to get into your tissue.
Vitamin D helps your body absorb the calcium you eat into your blood.
Vitamin F helps bring the calcium from the blood into the actual cells.
Milk by the way is a horrible source of Calcium – you need an acidic environment in your stomach to absorb calcium and milk is basic meaning you do not absorb the calcium in the milk.
As many people know, Vitamin D is produced when your skin is exposed to the Sun.
Which means you will absorb a lot more calcium from the food you eat. And if you do not have the Vitamin F to bring the calcium into your cells, you can get all kinds of symptoms and problems because of this.
One other thing.
You have to have a balance of Vitamin F, Vitamin D and Calcium.
If they are out of balance, symptoms like those listed above will often be a result.
Summer = Extra Vitamin D production – often throwing off the balance of the other two.
You may also need calcium, depending on your system. And make sure it is a good calcium source like calcium lactate or chelated calcium.
NOT calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is ground up rock – literally – and you don’t absorb into your blood but 1% of the calcium found in calcium carbonate supplements.
The best source of any vitamin or mineral is from a whole food source. Food you actually eat. So do you use whole foods or supplements?
Well, the standard process supplements are actually made from whole foods.
So you have all the nutrients and co-factors needed as found naturally in whole foods.
You can read about it on my website.
And where can you get Cataplex F in whole foods?
Organ Meats from animals like liver and heart, etc.
Most butter and dairy products are pasteurized to kill the “bad bacteria” if there is any. Well, they also kill the good bacteria and other nutrients like Cataplex F in the process. So the butter must be raw, not pasteurized.
You can also get the Standard Process Cataplex.
