I strongly believe that food is where we should get the majority of our nutrients, and eating a variety of foods that are as close to nature as possible is what we should strive for.
Our bodies need certain nutrients to survive, and if we’re not getting them on a regular basis, we start to experience sickness and disease, and at the very least, we don’t look and feel as good as we were meant to.
The problem with getting our nutrients from our diet is that most of us don’t eat a variety of fresh foods that are as close to nature as possible.
Convenience foods are so popular because they provide what almost everyone is looking for, and that’s a quick and easy meal when our lives are SO busy.
I get it, my life is busy too and I know how tempting it is to grab something out of a box and throw it in the oven for dinner.
The thing is, there’s usually more nutrition in the box itself than there is in what’s inside the box, and because these convenient meals are full of chemicals and preservatives and are so highly processed, they’re usually causing more harm than good by not only NOT giving our bodies the nutrients that we need, but they’re adding to the toxic load that’s already in our bodies.
Even those of us that don’t regularly use packaged foods for meals, still aren’t getting the same quality of nutrients from our foods that we would have with those same foods 50 years ago. The soil quality just isn’t the same, and unless you’re eating fresh, organic and local foods all the time, you’re not getting all of nutrients that your body needs.
So, this is where supplements come in. They are meant to ‘supplement’ the nutrients that you’re not getting from your diet.
The problem with the majority of these, is that we’re not absorbing them. A lot of the common supplements are made up of binders and fillers that our bodies can’t process. So now, we’re literally flushing these supplements down the toilet.
Unless you’re investing in a good quality supplement that has been third-party tested, you may as well not waste your money.
I know how frustrating it is to think that you’re doing right by your body by taking supplements only to realize that you’re only absorbing a small portion of what you think you’re getting.
I’m often asked about where to get good quality supplements, so after doing some research myself, I’ve found a company that offers practitioner-grade supplements, and as a practitioner, I’m able to share the link with you and by using my link you can receive 10% off your order.
