Recommended Daily Allowance?

The Recommended Dietary Allowance or RDA is defined as “the average daily dietary intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all (approximately 98 percent) healthy individuals”.

History

This scale and its figures were first invented in 1947. However, it wasn’t until 1974 when introducing the new revision of the RDA that Dr. Alfred E. Harper, the Chairman of the Committee on Dietary Allowances, Food and Nutrition Board said:

    “…However requirements differ with age and body size; among individuals of the same body size owning to differences in genetic makeup; with the physiologic state of individuals- growth rate, pregnancy, lactation; and with sex.”

Man is consumed and controlled by numbers. Even our health is controlled by numbers such as the dosage of prescriptions and medicines.

Since government created the RDA chart, they feel they have the authority to tell people how much of a certain nutrient they should consume daily.

Government is currently working on changing the RDA again, but this time in name, to the DRI, which stands for Dietary Reference Intake.

Genetics

When dealing with people on a one-on-one basis, it is important to take their age, sex/gender, race or ethnicity, and astrology sign into consideration when interpreting their health.

However, these requirements differ with age, body size, genetic makeup, and physiological state of the individual.

You can’t tell everybody to consume the same amount of supplemental Calcium unless it’s organic. Supplemental Calcium is inorganic and thus technically a drug and therefore dosage is an important thing to consider.

Different sexes and races tend to require different supplements. For instance, white women usually need more supplemental Calcium and Black women tend to need more iron. Its important to keep their race or nationality in mind when suggesting herbal formulations based upon the biogenetic makeup and nutritional needs. The dosage will not vary from one race to another, but the formulas will based on dietary or nutritional needs.

You must consider one’s biogenetic makeup or ethno-characteristics. This explains why certain races suffer from diseases more frequently than others.

Also, it is important to consider that every person born under a different astrology sign has a required cell salt and may need more of it than others.

The reason why commercial nutritional supplements list milligrams (or micromilligrams) on the labels is because these vitamin and mineral supplements are made from oxides. The milligrams and dosage is required to be listed on the label by law. They are synthetic but can be called a real nutrient by law predicated upon matching molecular structure of a real organic substance under a microscope.

It is important to monitor the dosage because there are many pharmaceutical drugs that can be poisonous to your health.

Herbs vs. Drugs

Any nutrient found in an animal is derived from plants. This is why meat-eaters allegedly eat animals-for the nutrients that the animal derived from the plant.

Lets not forget that the original drug was an herb. The word “drug” derives from the Old French word “Drogue” meaning “dried plant”. Pharmaceutical drugs have all originally derived from herbs, but it is obvious that a pharmaceutical drug or even a vitamin and/or mineral supplement is not a “dried plant.”

Pharmaceutical companies are also producing nutritional supplements these days.

Nature does not produce anything in mono-structured form. Vitamin C must come from a plant or fruit. It is not something that can be man made in a laboratory. Vitamin C comes from a plant, not Citric Acid.

The top three highest and richest sources of Vitamin C are Camu (fruit), Amalaki (fruit), and Acerola.

Dherbs.com lists a basic dosage on each label but you can take as many as you would like because herbs are food, so you cannot overdose. However, too many people see herbs and drugs as the same thing and think they will harm themselves by taking too many herbs.

Just remember, you can’t overdose on real food. However, you can overdose on pharmaceutical drugs and certain synthetic vitamin and mineral supplements.

    Q: Can I take the Moringa Formula instead of the Vitamin C formula, and still get the necessary nutrients that my body needs from Vitamin C? My daily regime will goes as follows: Electric Green Combo, Iodine, and Moringa Formula or/and Vitamin C based on your answer. Thanks.

    A:

    You sure can! Ounce per ounce it contains 6 to 7 times the amount of Vitamin C in orange juice. Although moringa will provide you with a plethra of vitamins and nutrients, you still must eat foods that also bring you these nutrients. Supplements are just that, something added to help complete a diet or dietary needs.
