Let’s face it. How many of us can honestly say that we eat the textbook definition of a balanced, varied, healthy diet? One that supplies 100% of the nutrients your ever-changing body needs for optimal health. There probably aren’t many who do. That’s why dietary supplements are a growing part of health maintenance and disease prevention protocols.
Nutritional supplements are designed to support your diet by adding missing or insufficient nutrients from your food choices. With a majority or our foods subject to poor soil conditions and industrial processing techniques, today’s food lacks the nutrients that it once had.
Dietary supplements also help to make up for nutrients that your body can’t manufacture in sufficient amounts, and can help your body during times of stress when more nutrients are needed. As we get older, natural production of some nutrients and essential compounds decreases. During times of illness or injury, extra nutrients can promote the healing process.
While vitamins and minerals tend to be the most common nutrients for regular supplementation, don’t forget about the importance of amino acids, enzymes, herbs, fatty acids, and probiotics to maintain health and prevent disease formation throughout the lifecycle.
