Why Supplements Are Important for Your Wellness
Why supplements are important
It’s nice to think that just by eating a healthy diet we can give our bodies everything they need, but unfortunately, this is not the case. Today the nutritional values of fruits and vegetables are below those that were available in the 1970s. This is due to the many fertilisers used in commercial farming, meaning soils have been significantly deprived of vital nutrients over time. Furthermore, the producers of our fruits and vegetables create hybrid forms to enhance their colour, weight and long shelf life, which seriously decreases the nutritional values and health benefits too.
Even if you are eating a fully organic diet, you would need 12-14 portions of fruit and vegetables a day to give your body what it needs.
For centuries, we have relied on nutrient-rich water sources to get the essential minerals our bodies need, but the way modern water production works, along with the excessive use of filters, our water is depleted of vitamins and minerals. Therefore, we need dietary supplements to gain the essential nutrients and micronutrients that cannot be introduced with a regular diet, regardless of how balanced and healthy.
Good Health Naturally’s Multivitamin & Multimineral Complex Active Life capsules will provide a solid foundation for all your nutritional needs, combining 130 nutrients in one capsule. A unique and powerful formula, including vitamins and minerals, fulvic trace minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and much more, carefully formulated to provide comprehensive nutritional support to the whole family.
How can we help our bodies deal with everything modern life throws at us?
In the ever-changing world, our bodies need more nutrients to combat the increased amount of toxins that are constantly released around us, because the nutrients from food today are not up to the challenge.
Environmental factors, including air pollution and even excessive sun exposure, are known to promote the excessive free radical formation and oxidative stress. Lifestyle choices play a part too – smoking, alcohol, high blood sugar and many more.
Antioxidants are molecules that attach an electron to a free radical without making them unstable, resulting in efficient and effective absorption of minerals, calcium and vitamins
by the entire body as well as the brain, where all three play such a protective role.
Our Antioxidant AstaXan with DHA is the perfect daily supplement to handle the huge amounts of toxins that modern-day living is creating, preventing oxidative stress and excessive free radical formation.
Our body’s requirements change depending on different factors, which is why supplements are important for many reasons including age, exercise and pregnancy…
As a health-savvy person, we know you are dedicated to maintaining good health for yourself and your family. We know, too, that you are acutely aware that the human immune system (we recommend D.I.P Daily Production to strengthen this) is constantly challenged by factors we have mentioned such as environmental pollution and poor dietary choices, plus day-to-day stress and even the normal ageing process.
As we get older, we have a harder time digesting food and retaining nutrients even with a balanced diet, and this is worsened when more medications are needed for age-related medical conditions. It is important when seeking medical advice, that your health care advisor is recommending supplements, especially if the medication will interfere with stomach acid meaning even less nutrients of the food eaten will be absorbed.
If you are looking for a supplement to balance high blood pressure, decrease the risk of age-related cognitive decline, help avoid chronic fatigue issues, lower the risk of hip fractures, help prevent heart disease, help reduce chances of stroke, and that may reduce overall osteoporosis risk then Vitamin C Zooki – Liposomal Vitamin C is for you.
Exercise and nutrition are essential components of a healthy lifestyle, as they can influence energy balance and improve immunity. Supplements can contribute to the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise, plus fish oil such as The Krill Miracle may benefit areas such as joint health, normal immune function and cardiovascular health.
As well as folic acid, The World Health Authority recommends all women of childbearing age supplements iodine, as it is critical in the first few weeks of pregnancy as well as when breastfeeding. We recommend taking Good Health Naturally’s Nascent Iodine to help avoid complications.
So, all things considered, taking supplements is an essential step towards optimum wellness to achieve a healthier you!
