With such busy lives, it’s often difficult to find time to operate and eat the 5 to 9 fruit and vegetables that the World Health Organization recommends. *Supplements might help us fill the gap of nutrients we need every day, while still living life to the full.
We know that fruit and vegetables are good for us, so its only natural that any supplement we consider should be rich in phytonutrients – the plant nutrient found in fruit and vegetables. Phytonutrients enable us to benefit from the very best of nature.
Are supplements for the sick?
There is a difference between supplements and treatment medication used to heal us when we are sick. Supplements are used to help fill in the missing nutritional gap, there is a huge gap in nutrition from our food these days. We basically should be getting most of the nutrition our body needs, from the food we eat daily, however, only if we eat enough fruit and vegetables daily. And besides not eating enough fruits and vegetables, not all nutrition the body needs can be found in food, which is one of the reasons why we need to take supplements to fill that nutritional gap that is always missing to keep our body healthier and stronger.
Am I eating enough fruit and vegetables?
You can probably consider yourself healthy and getting enough nutrients when you fill your plate or make sure you consume fruits and vegetables from all 5 color groups every day. The 5 color groups being Green, Purple, White, Red, and Yellow. That is how you get your body fueled in phytonutrients – the best nutrients found in fruit and vegetables. Can you manage to commit to getting your precious body with all the nutrition it needs to be healthier and stronger? If the answer is No, keep reading because this is where I’m going to tell you how you can supplement to fill the missing nutritional gap and what supplements we can use. Stay tuned!
What are supplements?
A supplement is a manufactured product intended to supplement the diet or fill a nutritional(vitamin B, C, multivitamin, omega 3, etc.) gap when taken by mouth as a pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid. Dietary supplements come in a variety of forms, including tablets, capsules, gummies, and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars. A supplement can provide nutrients either extracted from food sources or synthetic, individually or in combination, in order to increase the quantity of their consumption.
Organic vs Synthetic supplements
Organic supplements are derived from plants, fruit, and vegetables. The supplements that are considered organic are simple plant extract made into a form of a pill, or whatever the supplements are. Synthetic supplements on the other hand are made from the lab with little or no natural source, all made using chemicals to mimic the nutrition and flavors. I’m sure you can guess which ones are better and healthier for our bodies, and yes its organic supplements which is why I am going to introduce you to supplements that are organic, I mean literally planted from the soil and they are the most effective and the healthiest in the world.
There’s many supplements one can use, I am going to mention just a few to give an idea of what our body needs and we failing to give. You can think of all the vitamins the body needs, Vitamin C, D, multivitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, protein and may more.
There are many supplements I would really love to share with you, however I like to keep my blog post short and readable. I will add more valuable information on my up coming post, I take a few supplements and talk about each of them individually. The post will talking about strong immunity during the COVID-19 crisis – link to the post to be released soon.
