Why use natural supplements?
We are fortunate that here in New Zealand we have easier access to food that is nutritionally much richer and fresher than in many other developed countries. However, there are four very compelling reasons for supplementing your diet with natural supplements.
1. Kiwis have a bad habit of cooking our food “to death,” resulting in a massive loss of nutritional value, meaning far fewer vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes to go around. What’s more, eating these depleted foods over time creates its own set of health problems. Cooking can “kill” the food, resulting in lost nutrition. Fruits and vegetables should always be consumed in as close to a raw (uncooked) state as possible.
2. For whatever reasons, many people often skip meals. Grabbing a takeaway while gulping down a coffee and rushing to work does NOT constitute a meal. Making up for it later in the day at a fast-food outlet is not in the best interest of our bodies either, as it puts a lot of undue stress on the digestive system and will eventually cause rather uncomfortable symptoms.
3. As we get older, our bodies produce fewer enzymes, including all the important ones needed to properly digest and assimilate the foods we eat. Eventually, this results in “common” stomach complaints, like reflux, heartburn, upset stomach and chronic constipation.
4. We all lead busy lives and some of us are busier than others! Between commitments to your family, school, work, community, and other obligations, our lives are stressed to the max! All of this stress takes a toll on your body and weakens your immune system. Taking supplements can help to bridge that gap and give your body some of the nutrition it needs to function optimally.
Of course, nothing will take the place of eating a good and healthy diet. But taking quality, whole food-based natural supplements can go a long way towards helping you maintain a better level of health. AND, if you still have some working through some bad habits (skipping meals and not eating organic foods), you need them even more!
