In today’s world of stress, environmental toxins, and gut problems, many health needs are not being met by food alone. This is due to:
Poor sources of food, including processed, refined, and fast food options that wreak havoc on our health. The lack of quality soil and chemicals in our environment. Even organic whole foods don’t contain the nutrient density profile from fifty years ago, because of the lack of nutrients and presence of chemicals in our soil. Differing individual nutrient needs; for most people, the government’s Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is not sufficient for optimal health
Just as you have different food needs, you also have different nutrient needs that can vary by as much as 10,000% from person to person due to genetics, metabolism, environment, lifestyle, and your current state of health. For example, the nutritional needs of a professional basketball player are totally different from someone suffering from an autoimmune disorder.
Not only is it important to eat well and adhere to proper supplementation; it’s important to pay attention to the quality of the supplement, which has a huge impact on the success of your healing.
