10 Reasons To Consider Supplementing Your Diet With High-Quality Nutrients:

Natural and herbal supplements can help to restore
the body to a place of balance. But, it’s probably going
to take more than one thing, or even two. In fact,
it might take between 5-10 supplements to restore your health.
If there is a “serious” health issue on the table,
it will take much more time and effort than that.

Here are ten reasons to consider supplementing your
diet with high-quality nutrients:

1. Current commercial agriculture techniques leave soil
deficient in important minerals, causing the food grown
in this soil to share the same mineral deficiencies.

2. Many foods are shipped long distances and are stored
for long periods of time, both of which cause the depletion
of vitamins in these foods, including the important
B-complex and C vitamins.

3. Food processing, cooking, and preserving leads to nutrient
depletion in our food supply that makes it difficult to
obtain adequate nutrition from foods alone.

4. Many fruits and vegetables are genetically bred to improve
visual appeal and crop yields, not nutritional value,
which frequently results in lesser nutritional values
than our ancestors’ food supply.

5. Erratic eating habits, insufficient chewing of food,
eating on the run, and stress contribute to poor digestion,
making it difficult for our bodies to extract all
the nutrients it needs from food.

6. Pharmaceutical drug use has escalated over time.
Most medications deplete essential nutrients,
making people more vulnerable to deficiencies.

7. Specific times in life and health conditions may result
in higher needs of certain nutrients. For example, folic acid needs
tend to be higher during pregnancy, while menopausal women
may be vulnerable to calcium deficiencies.

8. Increasing levels of environmental pollution in our air,
water and food may cause our bodies to use more nutrients
than normal to detoxify and eliminate harmful substances.
This is especially true of the antioxidant vitamins,
some of which include: the “ACE Vitamins:”
Vitamins A, C, and E.

9. We all have genetic weaknesses, including higher
needs of some nutrients, higher rates of depletion for certain nutrients,
and an increased likelihood of genetic expression of some
illnesses if vitamin or mineral deficiencies are present.

10. Many nutrients have been proven to prevent or aid in the treatment
of health conditions like high cholesterol, arthritis, birth defects, and cancer.

It is important that you always consult a qualified health professional
first to avoid any drug-nutrient interactions.
And avoid supplements with sweeteners, colors,
artificial flavors, preservatives, or fillers.

Nothing will take the place of eating a good and healthy diet.
But taking quality, whole food-based natural supplements
can go along way towards helping you maintain a better level of health.
