Have you ever heard about professional athletes dropping dead on the field? According to the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta , 100,000 youngsters, as well as pros, die each year from cardiovascular disorders as a result of sports. THIS IS TWICE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT DIE ON THE NATIONS HIGHWAYS! And 45,000 of the 100,000 play basketball, not boxing or football.
In hard exercise, people sweat out many of their vital minerals including sodium, potassium, amino acids, major minerals, electrolytes, trace and rare earth minerals. Rigorous exertion without replacing these lost minerals can be fatal. There are sports drinks that are supposed to replace nutrients lost during exertion; these are meant to be helpful, but they are mostly just sugar, salt, potassium and food coloring.
Why are athletes dropping dead at early ages? Doesn’t exercise make you healthy? Why are they not faring as well compared to couch potatoes? That’s because athletes sweat more in five years than couch potatoes do in 75 years. And when you sweat, you’re not just sweating out water, you’re sweating out a “soup” mixture of bodily fluids that contains essential minerals. They are called essential minerals because if any of them are missing for any length of time, you are at risk of getting any one of a variety of horrible degenerative diseases — many of which are life threatening. So, this is a no brainer folks…
Who is more likely to die of a life threatening mineral deficiency disease, an athlete sweating out quarts and quarts of this mineral-rich soup every day, or a couch potato in an air conditioned den, laying on the couch belching and flipping through the channels?
Here’s just a few examples:
ON THE OTHER HAND: Evander Holyfield, a world heavyweight champion boxer, had his career temporarily sidelined by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a form of heart disease. His friend and neighbor, Andrew Young, had experienced great results using Youngevity supplements to save his knees, so he introduced Evander to supplementation with selenium and other minerals. After giving his body the nutrition it needed over a period of time, Evander Holyfield was able to come back and defend his boxing title several more times.
Now the bottom line message here is this: you don’t need to be an athlete to sweat; but losing sweat without replenishment can cause issues. You may be training in the military, you may be a roofer, a carpenter, an electrician, a plumber, a carpet layer — you may be a farmer or a dance instructor. You may work in a bakery, or in an air conditioned insurance agency where it’s so cold you could hang meat.
We all sweat. When we don’t sweat much at work because we’re inactive, we may join a health club, then we go sweat 3-4 nights a week. Whatever the case may be, unless you’re replacing the minerals you’re sweating out, you’re not going to make it to a “ripe old age,” and you’re likely to be sick and miserable the last 12 to 15 years of your life.
Exercise without supplementation is suicide. Just like running your car without oil — it just doesn’t work.
