You Need These to Live

"Your mother was right" (Frank VanderSloot, Melaleuca CEO).

Vitamins and minerals are essential to life, and you get them from what you eat. Fruits and vegetables are the best source of vitamins and minerals, but according to a 2009 report from the Centers for Disease Control, 86% of U.S. adults and more than 90% of U.S. teens are not eating the recommended daily amount of fruits and vegetables1. Because we aren't getting the vitamins and minerals we need from what we eat, doctors are recommending supplements to close the gap.2

Timing Matters

We normally eat several times each day, and your body utilizes supplementary vitamins and minerals more completely when they are delivered in at least two servings. Melaleuca's Oligo Vitality Pack is packaged for taking twice daily. That helps your body have access to the vitamins and minerals it needs throughout the day.

This is critical for those essential vitamins the body cannot store. Their availability time, upon absorption, is limited. When you take Melaleuca's Oligo twice daily, your body is provided with a consistent supply of the nutrients it needs to maintain optimal health.

Missing a Day can be Hazardous

You may not feel any different when you miss a day of taking your supplements, but your body knows the difference.

Each nutrient provides multiple benefits to your body, and some of those functions are critical: regulating the beating of your heart, for instance. Other benefits are more long term, like strengthening your immune system.* Furthermore, your body prioritizes these benefits and sends the nutrients to where they are most needed at the time they are available.

You may feel fine-even when you skip taking your supplements-since the body is making sure the critical functions are being looked after. You could be causing other systems to suffer, though, perhaps cutting back on tissue restoration or on your defenses against infections.* Over time, those deficiencies can add up. Many maladies are directly related to vitamin and mineral deficiencies-osteoporosis is one example

Now that you know the basics of vitamin and mineral supplementation, are there any changes you should make?

Melaleuca CEO, Frank VanderSloot, says your mother was absolutely right when she told you to eat your fruits and vegetables. They are the best natural sources for essential vitamins and minerals. How many of us always did what our mothers told us to do, though?

In September of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that 86% of adults and more than 90% of children do not eat enough fruits and vegetables daily. How can that nutritional gap be closed? Melaleuca's Vitality Pack with Oligo can help provide the nutritional elements you and your family may be missing.

Melaleuca's Vitality Pack isn't aimed at daily minimum requirements only. It provides research-recommended amounts, from the best sources available, in order to provide your body with more of the essential nutrition it needs to stay healthy.
