Vitamin J

Any astute noggin doctor will tell you that vitamin J is crucially important to mental health. Any guru worth their salt will tell you that vitamin J is critically important to spiritual health. Sadly, not many physicians or surgeons will tell their patients of the profound importance of vitamin J to the health of our bodies.

Numerous unsubstantiated, non-scientific studies have shown that vitamin J may be the most important vitamin to our health and that vitamin J deficiency has become epidemic in scope and may very well be one of the leading causes of death among humans.

Do you get enough vitamin J every day? If not, you will not find it in pill form in the Supplements section of your local Wal-Mart — or on Amazon. According to many anonymous, self-proclaimed experts, vitamin J can not be artificially manufactured. Apparently, it has to be experienced.

So how can you get more vitamin J? Professionals who claim to have studied vitamin J all their lives have some suggestions about where it can be found:

  1. Animals and nature
  2. Sunshine
  3. Walking barefoot on a beach
  4. Holding a newborn human baby in your arms for at least 15 minutes
  5. Dancing
  6. Having contact with other humans
  7. Travel
  8. Meditation
  9. Occasional nudity
  10. Gardening
  11. Writing
  12. Tree hugging

Some rogue scientists claim that one of the biggest sources of vitamin J is laughter. Apparently, as we laugh our abdominal muscles massage both the solar plexus and the heart and in the process vitamin J is actually produced by our bodies. Many comedians have become fabulously wealthy knowing this secret knowledge.

And that’s the rub. While our bodies desperately need vitamin J to stay healthy, our very bodies produce vitamin J! It’s the activities we partake in and the attitudes we maintain that help induce the body to produce this life-giving vitamin. The best place to find vitamin J is within.

Of course people are always asking if vitamin J can be found in any of the foods we eat. Preliminary studies conducted both here and abroad are now indicating that vitamin J can indeed be found in what we eat. Some of those foods include:

  1. Ice cream
  2. Chocolate
  3. Peaches
  4. Pizza
  5. Cheesecake
  6. Hatch green chile

Of course more study is needed. It seems that the amount of vitamin J extracted from food is different with each food for every individual. Also, the attitude held and one’s environment play a role in how much vitamin J is absorbed. One clinical trial in an obscure Asian country found that the amount of vitamin J absorbed is greatly enhanced when the food is eaten out of doors.

Most all of the so-called experts agree that vitamin J is extremely abundant — especially since it can be produced from within us. It is everywhere. Yet the epidemic of vitamin J deficiency remains pervasive. If you suffer from it, learn more about vitamin J and know that there is help out there for you. Don’t suffer in silence.

In case you’re wondering what the J stands for, it stands for joy.
