Do We Really Need Nutritional Supplements? Top 5 Reasons We Need to Supplement

Do I really need to supplement? Why is it so important, anyways? Well, in a perfect world, none of us would need to supplement because we'd be able to get all the nutrients we need to survive from the food we eat.  But due to the poor quality of our modern diet from chemicals, preservatives and toxins, daily stresses etc, few of us are able to get what we need even in the most strict of organic diets. According to Dr. Mark Hyman, "Most people don’t understand the role of vitamins and minerals in our bodies. I certainly didn’t when I finished medical training. I thought if we just had enough to prevent us from some horrible deficiency state like scurvy (vitamin C deficiency), then you didn’t have to worry about how much you were getting. I also thought that if you ate “enriched food” like white flour with a few vitamins added back in, or milk with vitamin D added in, additional vitamin supplementation was a waste." read his article here: ' Do you need n

Why I Supplement and the Top 5 Supplements You should take EVERYDAY to Stay Energetic Fit and Healthy!

Most of us know by now that we need to take some sort of daily vitamin or supplement to replace the nutrition we aren't getting in our diets.  Even with a near perfect diet its almost impossible to get all the nutrition we need to maintain a healthy body because of today's depleted crops, harvesting practices etc.. Proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle play such an important role in helping to prevent most major diseases (such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease), but getting proper nutrition in our modern world can be a such challenge. But Why? • Our bodies can't produce most of the nutrients we need , so they must be found in our food as well as in the supplements we take each day. And if the food we are eating is lacking nutrients (which it usually is), then supplementation can be extremely beneficial to our overall health. • Many people think that they eat healthy enough, but research has shown that  80% of Americans are not eating enough servings of f
