In a perfect world long ago you could probably get all the essential nutrients you need from your food. If everyone ate a nutritious and balanced diet of high quality foods there would be no need to supplement. The reality is that our foods today have lost the majority of their nutrients. This is due to the poor element density of the soil, chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides, and mass-production farming techniques.
On top of that many of the food choices we make lack the essential nutrients that our bodies need to function at an optimal level. The combination of these issues has lead to wide spread nutritional deficiencies and the rapid increase of degenerative diseases. This is why supplements have become a major health topic and billion-dollar industry.
The good news is that a solid program of regular exercise, an organic nutrient-dense diet, combined with high quality nutritional supplements may help prevent disease and optimize your health!
Note: Not all supplements are created equal. As a consumer you must be aware of what kind of supplements you are purchasing. If you decide to use supplements always choose supplements whose manufacturer is a current GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified company. GMP certified companies by law, require that the manufacturers, processors, and packagers of their supplements take proactive steps to ensure that their products are safe, pure, and effective.
