Given today’s increased stress factors, poor quality of our food supply and toxin exposure, it is nearly impossible to get all of the essential vitamins and nutrients from just food alone. Even if you are eating a lot of vegetables and fruits, our soil quality has greatly declined which means the nutritional value of those vegetables and fruits have also greatly declined.
This is where supplementation comes in. Supplementation provides additional support in areas where our bodies may be deficient have imbalances. Did you know that over 90% of Americans are deficient in multiple types vitamins? We are spending more time indoors, more sedentary, and sleeping less, all of which are extremely stressful on the body. Without the proper levels of vitamins and nutrients, our bodies will not be able to perform optimally- ultimately causing sickness and disease.
But first, let’s get one thing straight. Supplements must not be confused with drugs. Supplements work in conjunction with the body’s natural functions while drugs inhibit those functions.
