A nutritional supplement is only as good as the sum of its parts so it’s important to choose your vitamins and nutritional supplements carefully. Because much of the food we eat in our busy modern society is highly processed and void of minerals and nutrients, taking a multivitamin or other supplements can help supply you with the nutrients you need to keep you strong and healthy.
Eating a diet that is rich in whole foods and contains non-processed meals is the best way to get your daily dose of necessary vitamins but our busy lifestyles and the standard American diet can leave us lacking many important nutrients. This can lead to a number of health and mood issues that can greatly affect your everyday life. From lack of energy to skin and acne problems, to mood disorders and more, a body that is missing essential nutrients can suffer from a range of problems that can affect your performance and comfort level at home and work. A way to bridge this nutritional gap is to include a specially formulated supplement made with whole food ingredients.
The reason it is good to use whole food ingredients for any multivitamin or supplement is so it will deliver nutrients as they are found in nature, where their natural potency and efficacy will be utilized. It is, after all, in this whole food state that nutrition is typically harnessed and presented to the body in regular digestion. When given the proper nutrients, the human body has the amazing ability to begin healing itself. By eating healthier, exercising, and supplementing with high quality, whole food supplements, we give our bodies what they need to performance effectively and efficiently and reduce a number of common problems related to poor nutrition.
Here are some great times to add Whole Food Supplements into your daily routine:
- During pregnancy
- During an illness or with a medical condition that affects how your body absorbs nutrients
- With food allergies, when you can’t eat certain foods
