Your First Servings of a Nutritional Supplement
This article provides some suggestions on taking
your first serving of a nutritional supplement.
It focuses on starting an Aloe-Vera and Sea Vegetable
supplement but can be applied to starting a variety
of liquid nutritional supplements. It shows you
how to get the best and the most from every subsequent
serving you take.
So, how much should you take as your first serving?
First, if you have not already done so, complete
a Health Evaluation Questionnaire and determine
your health index. Once you complete the questionnaire
and have determined your health index, you will
have an idea of the amount and frequency of a
liquid nutritional supplement is best for you.
If you simply taste the supplement to see if it
is right for you, a serving of one to two ounces
Some general guidelines about your first serving:
1. Gently shake the bottle of your nutritional
supplement. This will mix the tiny bits of sea
vegetable pulp with the aloe vera. You should
shake the bottle before every serving.
2. For your first servings, use a measuring cup.
We have a tendency to under or overestimate how
much is one, two, four or eight ounces so using
a measuring cup will allow us to reset our estimating
3. Use the same glass every time. Once you've
measured out the specific amount that you want
to consume, pour it into your favorite juice or
wine glass. Note the amount from the measuring
cup and how much that amount fills your favorite
glass. Doing this for a few days will eliminate
your need to use the measuring cup. Note that
you do not need to worry about taking too much
of a whole food product. It is like eating oranges
or bananas. You're not at risk of overdosing with
a whole food.
4. Take a small sip and hold the liquid nutritional
supplement under your tongue. Wait about 10 seconds
and repeat several times. Special cells under
the tongue absorb nutrients directly into the
bloodstream. You will almost be able to feel the
supplement 'disappearing' under your tongue. It's
actually being absorb by these special cells.
The more quickly you body absorbs the supplement,
the more likely your body needs it!
5. Store your open container of Aloe Vera and
Sea Vegetable liquid nutritional supplement in
the refrigerator. It's a whole food that has enzymes,
amino acids, and other live nutrients. Keeping
it refrigerated will ensure it maintains its potency.
In addition to refrigerating a whole food, since
it is a whole food the nutritional supplement
can be taken on either an empty stomach or with
meals. However, when first starting out, taking
it on an empty stomach may cause some discomfort
with those that have a stomach condition or any
stomach toxicity. It could make your stomach feel
queasy. If this occurs, you can reduce or eliminate
the feeling by eating a little bit of food. The
Aloe Vera in the supplement can also be used after
a meal to aid digestion and ease any stomach upset
Before you drink your First Serving, take a moment
to examine how you are feeling. Sense your energy
levels, the degree of pain you may be experiencing,
or how other symptoms may be bothering you at
the moment. After taking your nutritional supplement
(remember holding small sips under the tongue
for maximum absorption), take another assessment
of how you feel. Some people enjoy the benefits
right away, others within a few days, and others
over a period of a few weeks. The benefits depend
on your body and the amount of toxins within it.
It is worth discussing toxicity for a moment.
If you are concerned about heavy metals or toxicity
(various elements within your body that have build
up over time that your body should have eliminated
but could not for a number of reasons) then you
may be concerned that an Aloe Vera and Sea Vegetable
combination may cause your body to detoxify too
quickly, leaving you with an uncomfortable cleansing
action. Aloe Vera by itself can have a laxative
effect. Sea Vegetables on the other hand can cause
constipation in some people.
Combining the two
into one liquid nutritional supplement may counterbalance
these effects. However, you may still experience
a bit of cleansing because of the heavy metals
or toxins stored within your body. The remedy
is simple. Cut your dose in half and add a little
bit more each time you take your supplement until
you reach your recommended dosage.
is a natural part of getting your body back to
its most natural state. Not everyone experiences
cleansing but for those that do, follow the guidelines
and enjoy the benefits. It's important to continue
taking the supplement so just cut back a bit,
then add a little more each day.
Remember to take the Health Evaluation Questionnaire
and determine your health index for the recommend
amount of your nutritional supplement. Hold it
under your tongue for maximum absorption and take
it each day as recommended. The benefits to you
of any nutritional supplement will come over time.
