The human body is created from the food we feed it. Having your nutritional needs met could mean the difference between life and death.
The Nutritional Gap
For many years the nutritional values of food have been decreasing due to mass production.
Industrial farming which depletes the soil of nutrition combined with heavy doses of pesticides and other chemicals has depleted out food of nutrition. The added burden of high heat food processing and synthetic additives has made the problem even worse. Our body cannot cope with the excess of toxicity and the lack of nutrition. The epidemics of lifestyle disease, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, alzheimer’s and many more are a direct result of our lack of quality nutrition.
At Celtic Nutrition we fill the gap nutritional gap and promote healthy conscious habits to radically improve immediate and long term health.
Nutritional science is poorly regulated and highly profitable.
This has unfortunately created a huge number of supplements which do not deliver on their promises. Individuals stuck in old, but profitable paradigms of dieting and calorie theory have rigidly stuck to concepts based on thermodynamics that have been debunked as too simplistic and outdated by many. Your body is not a furnace, you are a complex biomechanical machine with deep rooted nutritional needs.
Another problem with nutrition science is its habit of measuring individual ingredient’s effects on health outcomes, i.e. consumption of saturated fat causing heart disease (which is more accurately linked to the wheat flour, refined sugar and trans-fats commonly found in heavily processed foods).
Michael Pollan does a persuasive takedown of “nutrionism,” which he defines as an ideology built around “the widely shared but unexamined assumption is that the key to understanding food is indeed the nutrient.” This approach involves breaking whole foods apart, until a chicken breast is nothing but an assemblage of different nutrients, vitamins, minerals, fats and proteins.
These individual components are studied for their effects on health. This is not how food works in the body. Nutrients in foods work in synergistic ways – many nutrients of which we have not even discovered. Nutrionism all too often depends upon shoddy science, and ends up causing people to indulge in poor diets and low quality supplements.
At Celtic Nutrition we are different.
We have developed our products based on the synergies of the components to maximize absorption, minimize intake and boost your health. Our team is assembled by professionals in nutrition with years of experience in the field, lead and coordinated by the founder of the company and main lead David Burke.
Our team has conducted extensive research to better understand the positive impact of all the minerals included in our products. We have spent a lot of time and effort sorting the best materials naturally for clients. All these materials are checked by an independent lab for purity so that they contain no harmful heavy metals or chemicals.
It is not what you take that counts it’ what you absorb and that must be in the correct ratios. Our products contain carefully selected ingredients that are blended in the right ratios at the correct time in the process in order for people to get the maximum nutritional.
Mood and Memory
The relationship between mood, mind, memory and proper brain nutrition is yet another ‘modern’ discovery. But it makes sense, nourish your brain and it works optimally, we are meant to be happy and mentally fit! The western diet, high in Omega-6 has been linked to inflammation and anxiety.
For proper mental clarity and brain function we need to ensure our body receives the necessary nutrients.
There are over sixty neurotransmitters that regulate mood and memory.
You can boost your memory and mood by supporting specific pathways. Healthy omega 3 fatty acids and powerful antioxidants are essential. Boosting attention and concentration levels is easy when you support the neural pathways responsible.
This can sometimes be achieved through a balanced diet if the correct nutrients from fresh fruit, vegetables and animals products are being eaten. However, intensified food production methods lead to nutritional gaps, such as deficiency in Thiamine (Vit. B1) causes symptoms like confusion, irritability and fatigue.
There is an epidemic of anxiety and depression, maybe food is the answer and part of the problem?
