You may wonder if you really need a nutritional supplement, the answer is YES. In a perfect world, no one would need supplements, however; because of the poor quality of our food, high stress lifestyles, poor quality sleep, not enough sleep, and high amounts of toxins in our air, food, water and bodies most of us do really need a few supplements. Adding supplements can help our bodies feel and function their best. Today, nearly all of us need at least a high-quality multivitamin and mineral supplement.
When deficiencies are corrected, joint pain can be eased, mood improved, memory sharper and energy increased. Taking high quality medical grade supplements will help your body prevent disease, process hormones efficiently, rid the body of harmful toxins and help with healthy aging.
In America, we are overfed, obese and undernourished. This can lead to difficulty thinking, scurvy, severe vitamin D deficiency or rickets. Even with processed enriched foods – 92% of Americans are deficient in at least one vitamin or mineral. Many medications, prescription or OTC block essential vitamins and nutrients and inhibit the body’s ability to absorb essential vitamins and nutrients leading to long term complications such as early Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis. Vitamins and nutrients support the body’s enzyme functions and chemical reactions in your body.
In a USDA survey 75% of us do not get enough zinc, 37% do not get enough Vitamin C, 40% do not get enough iron and likely 100% of us don’t have enough of the very basic nutrients to feel and function our best. The USDA list the amount of a nutrient or mineral you need to prevent a deficiency, however your body may require more to feel and function at optimal health.
