Your Coral program may include nutritional supplementation. As you age, you progressively lose your functional capacities. This promotes weight gain as well as declines in metabolism, nutritional status, and hormonal levels. Certain precursor nutrients must be replaced in order for your body to function at an optimal level. RDA’s have been established by the Canadian Government for most vitamins and minerals and are the amounts required to prevent a deficiency disease state such as scurvy and rickets. Many individuals do not meet the standard of minimal intake, let alone the amount required to prevent age-related diseases. A daily vitamin and mineral supplement should contain more than just the RDA to provide a more complete and optimum nutritional platform.
