Heiko's Lack of Energy and Aching Knees

Meet Heiko, an 84 years old Grandma of Japanese descent. Of reasonable good health, Heiko used to enjoy walking in a park along a river with her friends. She said she would routinely walk 3 to 4 miles at a brisk pace. In the past year, several of her walking friends have passed away, most of them a little bit younger than her.

Starting about 6 months ago, Heiko started feeling really tired and her knees ached very bad when she tried to walk. She went to the Doctor and received Vitamin B12 injections and the Doctor asked her to take a daily multi-vitamin and he recommended Centrum, which of course is a food grade product and very low rated in the Comparative Guide for Nutritional Supplements.

For the past five months or so this course of action has not been effective for Heiko. Although Heiko said she felt better for 2 to 3 days after each Vitamin B12 injection, she still could not get a walk in due to getting tired easily and the pain in her knees.

Because Heiko only weighs 85 lbs, I suggested a pharmaceutical grade multi-mineral and antioxidant designed for teenagers and suggested she also add our Glucosamine and Omega 3 Fatty Acid.

Heiko called me a few days ago, which was a week after starting her second month on the products. She said she started walking again, even though it was cold, but she had walked 3 miles the day before with no problem, other than being a little sore the next day. She said he hardly felt any pain in her knees and did not feel short of breath or energy.

Heiko's example is obviously one of a degenerative condition that high quality supplements could help. Heiko's diet consists of traditional Japanese foods (rice and fish), which is pretty good. She doesn't drink or smoke and stays largely to herself and other elderly people in a retirement complex; has started back getting some exercise, and is now fulfilling the fourth leg of health, taking quality nutritional supplements to ensure she provides her body with the nutrients it needs and the like quality optimizers for her specific problem of aching knees.

  1. She is really adorable. I like to meet her. I want to suggestion from her to keep fit. Walking 3 or 4 miles in a day is not a easy.

  2. Usually, I prefer having low intake of carbohydrates and make sure that my diet is rich in proteins and vitamins, because I want to maintain my body weight without compromising with the facial glow. I know, as long as I will be able to have a balanced diet, I will be able to maintain the body shape.
