Anti-Nutrients  

Now we’re going to talk about phytic acid and other foods and compounds which can prevent nutrient absorption like cruciferous vegetables and oxalates.  

Phytic acid is kind of an anti-nutrient. It’s in a lot of nuts, seeds, and beans and it prevents you from absorbing minerals – unless you’re soaking these nuts, seeds, and beans (not on my keto program by the way).  

Roasting also gets rid of the phytic acid.  

Phytic acid can prevent you from absorbing minerals and trace minerals. So here you are eating lots of nuts and seeds to be healthy and you’re getting mineral deficiencies.   Cruciferous vegetables  

Cruciferous vegetables can create IODINE deficiencies. Iodine is crucial for lowering estrogen, important for preventing cancer, man boobs, and excess fat-storing estrogen in general. So when you’re consuming cruciferous, which is important for clearing out excess estrogen, you want to supplement with some natural iodine like sea kelp. Sea kelp is rich not only in iodine but all kinds of nutrients and amino acids. It’s a healthy sea vegetables.  

Oxalates  

Spinach, cruciferous vegetables, and peanuts have something called oxalates, which can prevent nutrient absorption and also cause kidney stones. The way to counteract this is to consume lemons and lemon juice. You can also steam the vegetables to reduce oxalates.  

Kale, by the way, is low in oxalates, while the others tend to be higher in them.

Why Healthy Eaters Can End Up Unhealthy: Fat-Soluble Nutrients

Now, let’s talk about vitamin A, iron, and B12. These vitamins are very difficult to get if you’re a vegetarian.

Yes, vitamin A is in vegetables—but only in pre-vitamin A form, not the active form of vitamin a that is in animal products, which is retinol.

If you’re lucky, you’ll convert 3 to 5% of vitamin A from vegetables.

Vitamin A is necessary for skin issues, eye health, immunity, and sinus issues. It has many other functions but those are the main functions of vitamin A. The main sources of vitamin A are cod liver oil, butter, organ meats, or any of the meats in general.

Iron

Iron is in vegetables as well, but it’s not in a form that will build your blood. So if you’re a vegan, and you’re anemic, you have a situation because it is very difficult to get enough iron from vegetables alone.

The best sources of iron are in liver, red meat that’s rare, any of the proteins, and eggs.

But mainly LIVER – it has tons of iron.

If you’re deficient in iron and you’re anemic, a vegetarian diet might be to blame.

B12

There is no natural source of B12 in vegetable or non-animal products. However, microbes do make B12. For example, my wheat grass juice powder, it doesn’t produce any B12 in the actual plant, but the friendly microbes in that powder actually make B12 as I recently had it tested and was surprised my wheatgrass juice had double the RDA of B12.

You can also get it in spirulina, chlorella, or green juices. Most B12 is in organ meats, eggs, and meats, however.

The Gall Bladder and Nutritional Deficiencies  

Your gall bladder concentrates bile and helps you extract the vitamins from the fat you eat such as vitamins A, E, D, and K.  

That bile is necessary to get all of these fat-soluble vitamins.  

Vitamin A = eyes and skin

Vitamin D= bones

Vitamin E hormones

Vitamin K clotting and for shuttling calcium where it needs to go, out of the joints and arteries and where it needs to go –the bones.  

So if you have deficiencies in the fat soluble vitamins, you either lack a gall bladder, have a congested gall bladder, or you are not producing enough bile to extract these fat soluble vitamins from your food.  

Especially if you are taking these vitamins and noticing symptoms.  

Let’s say you have macular degeneration, but you’re consuming kale with all these amazing fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients—and it’s not actually fixing the macula or let’s say you’re consuming vitamin A and your vision is not improving at night—but you’re taking this.  

It could be that you just don’t have enough bile to absorb these vitamins correctly.  

So, you can take purified bile salts in something called Gall Bladder Formula.  

You take that at the same time as consuming vitamin A, E, D or K and then you’ll absorb your fat-soluble vitamins.  

Then, this will drive those fat-soluble vitamins like a rocket ship – you’ll enhance absorption of these vitamins to the utmost and you’ll resolve skin issues like rosacea or dry skin—resolve conditions like dry and macular degeneration. You’ll notice a complete and quick difference in your eye and skin health from taking the Gall Bladder formula.  

If I had macular degeneration, I would not just eat lots of kale with high levels of lutein, which actually help the macula, but I would add the bile salts and drive that right into the eye, so I could actually start to improve that situation.   So, stomach acids are HIGHLY important in the absorption of minerals, trace minerals, and proteins.  

If you’re deficient in any of the trace minerals and you’re not seeing any difference, start adding some apple cider vinegar or betaine hydrochloride. These acidify the stomach so you can absorb these minerals. Especially if you’re trying to fix weak nails, hair loss, skin issues and other issues like these.  

Minerals have a lot of different functions that vary from building proteins, metabolism, hydration, keeping the heart in rhythm, many different things.  

Then we have insulin resistance---a pre-diabetic situation. When you have insulin resistance, you cannot absorb certain minerals and vitamins such as  

•    Potassium

•    Magnesium

•    Vitamin D

•    B vitamins  

So here you are taking vitamins and nothing’s working. That’s because you have either IR or you’re pre-diabetic and your absorption of vitamins and minerals is impaired.  

What’s interesting is that when you keep taking these vitamins because of conditions like this, you actually improve insulin resistance—and then improving insulin resistance improves the absorption of those nutrients.  

Low friendly gut bacteria  If your gut doesn’t have enough of the right bacteria, you’ll start showing deficiencies –especially in the B vitamins.  

So, you’ll see rashes, itching, and reddening of the face and psoriasis. So, you want to start to consume things with more probiotics in them. One of the best things which is better than a lot of probiotics and is all natural is sauerkraut. Sauerkraut is like consuming 10 times the amount of probiotics. Eating a cupful of sauerkraut will give you all the good bacteria you need. 

Review: Synthetic versus Natural vitamins  

How do we determine if something is synthetic?  

1. Read the label  Look at the ingredients. If it comes from vegetables, herbs, or some other food versus a chemical name.  

2. Look at the milligrams  

If the mgs. are all the same, like 100mgs. 100mgs, or they’re highly elevated, they’re synthetic. Natural vitamins you’ll see 6.5, 5.3 mgs, and not 5,000 mgs.  

What else should we do to ensure vitamin absorption and avoid deficiencies?  

First, do food based concentrates and vitamins.  

Second, to get rid of phytic acid, soak nuts and the seeds overnight. Dry them out. Or you can get them roasted.  

For foods like oxalates, add lemon juice. In fact, lemon juice each day and lemon in water helps counteract oxalates from spinach, peanuts, and cruciferous vegetables.  

In general, cruciferous vegetables are good for you but they do deplete iodine. So try my seak kelp. It’s very quality and is Icelandic sea kelp, from the purest waters of the globe. In fact, don’t take it before bed or it will keep you up because it boosts energy so much.  

Vitamin A – make sure to get it from animal fats, cod liver oil, butter, organ meats, or meat. You can also get some from eggs as well.  

Iron: the best sources for iron are animal proteins, such as beef, chicken, eggs, turkey, lamb.  

B12: you can get it from spirulina, chlorella, wheat grass juice—but you can also get it from animal protein as well.  

If the stomach acid is low, you need something called Digest Formula. This gives you a combination of apple cider vinegar and betaine hydrochloride together. You take them before a meal and you take from 2 to 4 before meals to acidify the stomach enough to pull in your vitamins and minerals.  

The way you know you need more stomach acid is that you get indigestion, bloating, and feel food is not digesting well enough.  

If it’s the gall bladder, you’ll have digestive issues, right shoulder pain, and fat-soluble vitamin deficiencies. I recommend the Gall Bladder Formula. It has betaine hydrochloride for the stomach, pancreatic enzymes that aid in nutrient absorption and help you better absorb all the fat soluble vitamins, slippery elm to lubricate the colon, and herbs to prevent gall stones, all kinds of good for your digestion compounds.  

Now you’ve completed the course and you know why you can eat healthy and STILL have a nutritional deficiency.
