Why Do I Need Supplements?
Did you know that 75% of Americans don't get enough zinc? That 70% of Americans don't get enough Vitamin E? You've have probably heard before that the food we eat today, is not grown the same way it used to be. Now days, our crops are repeatedly grown in the same nutrient depleted soil, toxins are sprayed on our fields, and animals subjected to cages instead of roaming. These events do not happen everywhere but they are more prevalent today than in our past and that makes a huge difference in how our body processes these foods.
Whether you are already healthy conscious or are trying to start a better diet, supplements can help your body get back to its natural homeostasis. The body was designed to crave and absorb whole food vitamins and minerals so that when you take them, your body automatically knows what to do with them to improve your health. When you put a synthetic substance in your body, it isn't familiar with it and may not know what to do with it. It takes more steps to break down the substance and you only get a small fraction of a huge benefit.
We do not live in a perfect world where we do not need assistance to keep ourselves healthy and strong, but by taking supplements, you just might improve your health, help your body naturally heal internal issues, and even add years to your life.
