Adequate consumption of vitamins and minerals can ensure the healthy longevity

According to scientists from the research Institute at children’s hospital in Oakland (USA), published in the journal MedicalXpress, about 70% of the population of most developed countries having problems with food, have a lack of one or more important to survival of the organism. This causes the depletion of internal reserves, the more frequent development of diseases and premature aging. However, it is quite easy to avoid, only adjusting the level of the flow of vital compounds.

At first glance it may seem that we are talking about normal vitamin deficiency and such States, however, it is not so. For vitamin deficiency we have a critical shortage items and serious symptoms associated with it. In the new study, the case is constantly available small drawback. As an example, the authors cite vitamin D, omega-3-unsaturated fatty acids and magnesium. In the case of constantly reduced the content of these substances is disturbed, a number of functions related to DNA repair, shortening of telomere length (this is the reason for the process of cellular aging), elasticity of the vascular wall and oxidation reactions of free radicals. And such a list might be for each important element. According to the author of the work of Dr. Bruce Ames,

“Nutritional science has long overlooked the fact that most of the vitamins and minerals it requires tens to hundreds of different systems. As a result, when the body is faced with a shortage of key nutrients, it needs to “rationalize” their distribution, allowing the enzymes that are critical to our survival and reproductive ability to continue to function through the oppression of longer-term physiological needs.”

The team of Dr. Ames has shown that people with chronic lack of vitamin K and selenium produces less enzymes for the normal functioning of blood vessels, leading to increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Now researchers are busy with the formation of the list and other substances, the lack of which has long-term consequences for the normal functioning of the body.
