Why you Need Vitamin Supplements
- Posted on: Jan 21 2014
Recent studies indicate that an estimated 90 percent of U.S. adults are nutritionally deficient. It used to be that the majority of the vitamins and minerals that our bodies require to function optimally were derived naturally, from the foods that we ate. Today, many of the foods that were once teeming with essential vitamins and minerals are now so overly processed that much of their nutritional value is depleted, by the time they hit store shelves.
Most people think that eating the right foods and getting plenty of exercise is enough to keep them healthy. While exercise and diet are critical components of our overall health, it is equally important that we replenish the nutrients that our bodies lack from diet alone, using dietary supplements.
Combined with a healthy diet and a regular fitness program, physicians believe there are some supplements that you can’t afford to live without, including:
- Multi-vitamin – It’s estimated that we only get 10 percent of our daily vitamins and minerals from the foods we eat. Multi-vitamins are a great way to supplement the nutrients that our bodies lack, all in one convenient dose.
- Vitamin D – Aids in calcium absorption to help build stronger bones. Additionally, vitamin D deficiencies have been linked to health challenges ranging from osteoporosis to cancer.
- Fish Oil/Omega 3 – Reduces inflammation and protects the heart from cardiovascular disease, stroke and heart attack. Fish has also been proven to lessen the likelihood of breast, colon and prostate cancer and even Alzheimer’s disease.
- Resveratrol – Resveratrol is an antioxidant that has been proven to reduce oxidative stress and minimize the risk of a variety of health challenges, including coronary heart disease and many forms of cancer.
Many supplements, however, are wastes of money because they are low in quality and lack in purity needed for full absorption.
