Why We Require Supplements

To be healthy, strong and maintain a sense of vibrancy and energy throughout our lives, our bodies require a broad range of essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other micronutrients. We can obtain most of the nutrients we need from a well-balanced diet, but not at the optimal levels now shown to promote health over the long term.

Add that to poor eating habits, meals on the run, fast food restaurants and processed foods which further depletes their nutritional value, and we are left with meals devoid of nutritional value. Plus, we are exposed to a hundred more toxins than our parents did. Even with a well-balanced diet, it is difficult to reach the advanced levels of nutrients that has been shown to promote optimal health.

Nutritional supplements are like a little insurance to maintain and enhance your optimal level of health. However, please understand that all supplements are not created equally. You could go to a local store and pick up a bottle of vitamins thinking you are getting something that will improve your health and overall wellbeing.

But how much do you know about what you are taking? How well will it be absorbed in your body? What type of quality exists in each pill? Is the vitamin designed to prevent nutritional deficiency diseases, such as Rickets? Or is it actually going to help you achieve the optimal level of health?
