Supplements 101: Feeding Your Body

As a nation we eat foods that have been stripped of their nutrients. We eat plenty, but we are still starving. The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with the nutrition they need to stay healthy.  So, we turn to supplements for extra support. If given the right nutrients the human body is designed to repair itself.

Whole food supplements can provide you with all the nutrients contained within the food because they are made from concentrated foods. Now, look at the ingredents listed on the food label of your store bought multi-vitamin. Do you recognize any of the ingredients? For Example, dl-alpha tocopherol acetate.  This is not a food ingredient. It is a manmade component of the vitamin E complex.  If you were to take a supplement with just dl-alpha tocopherol, you would by missing at least five other important nutrients as well as hundreds of other phytonutrients that occur naturally within the whole vitamin E complex. These nutrients are only available by consuming natural, whole food forms of vitamin E, such as wheat germ oil, green leafy vegetables, nuts and sunflower seeds.

Feeding your body natural ingredients, the type of ingredients your body was designed to digest and use to build a strong body; makes more sense, rather than feeding your body low quality vitamin isolates.

So, when it comes to feeding your body, whole food supplements are key.  You receive the complete, nutrient-rich package your body needs full of vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and phytonutrients the way nature intended, in a whole food form.
