Do you ever wonder why the experts keep saying that you need to take supplements? Why won’t a healthy, balanced diet work?
There are 3 main reasons that you need to take quality nutritional supplements each & every day. In this article, I want to go over these 3 reasons we need to supplement our diets.
Reason #1: Food Production Methods
In between harsh farming methods, toxic chemical sprays, harvesting the foods prematurely, & storing foods for long periods of time, much of the nutrients that should be in our food just aren’t there. Recent scientific studies show that a mere fraction of the nutrients that should be in foods are still there.
Especially nutrients such as enzymes & phytonutrients, which are very fragile, are destroyed long before the food reaches your table, if the nutrients were even there to start with.
Reason #2: Modern Day Diets
I sincerely doubt that there are too many health experts that could honestly say that the average American’s diet is “healthy.” Saturated fat is not the only part of our modern day diet that is unhealthy…we don’t get enough vitamins, antioxidants, glyconutrients, etc, etc. in our diets. If you would like to know how unhealthy the modern day diet really is, go to http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2004/04/21/DDG8767ITN1.DTL
Reason #3: Environmental Stress
The amount of toxins that we absorb each day is nothing short of horrendous. Researchers recently announced that if you go to Los Angeles, CA for two weeks, you will absorb more dangerous toxins in two weeks than is healthy for you to absorb during your entire life! All of these toxins have a serious effect on your health. Nutritional supplementation is one way that you can fight the downward pull of sickness.
Even the American Medical Association now recommends that you supplement your diet. Historically, the AMA has been opposed to nutritional supplementation–they believed that most people got all they needed in their food. But, due to the unprecedented poor nutrient supply in the food, & the declining health of the US population, the AMA now considers nutritional supplements essential!
So, if you want to be healthy–if you want to have wellness–get the best supplements that you can, & take them regularly.
The bottom line is that if you don’t supplement, you will never have the best health that you could.
To Your Health,
