With the best dietary intentions, we can very often fall short of meeting all our nutritional needs. Especially in today's day and age, with the atmosphere and soil being so contaminated, compared to a few years ago.
What has become essential is making sure we supplement our daily diets with the quality vitamins, nutrients, minerals and antioxidants that our bodies need in order to function correctly. Correctly, being the optimum word!
We need to make sure our DNA is being protected in order for us to live the healthy, active life that we desire.
In the ideal world, we would be able to consume the nutrients we need from food alone. Obviously, food not only should supply us with the vitamins and minerals we need but also gives us a host of other healthy compounds, like phytochemicals and antioxidants, fiber that interact with each other in ways that supplements alone cant.
Life, as we know it today, is so much more "On The Go" possibly not physically due to the influx of individuals working from a computer and sitting down longer than ever before, but the stress levels of today's society have increased two-fold due to moving into the digital era. Stress in itself along with a convenient diet has resulted in many new health issues.
In order to prevent possible health concerns, it is recommended to consume a quality supplement along with a balanced diet. For those who have cannot imagine changing their lifestyle when it comes to diet alone, need to be even more conscious of how important it is to consume a daily supplement in order to achieve optimum health and prevent chronic diseases.
One thing to be aware of, for those of you who do have an unhealthy diet. By only consuming a daily supplement, it is not intended to correct your poor diet.
Our body needs roughly 40 vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants daily for good health and as mentioned before, it is not easy to get all of those from food alone.
When debating on the supplement you are going to consume, always read the label. You need to keep in mind that some supplements you find on the shelves contain herbs and other unnecessary ingredients that can be potentially harmful. Unlike drugs, supplements are not required to undergo rigorous testing or get government approval. This leaves the safety of these products up to the manufacturers.
The best way to confirm you are going to be consuming a safe and complete supplement is by requesting their 3rd Party Testing Certification. This highlights just how correct the nutritional claims are on the labels.
If a Company does not make their 3rd party testing certificate available, it is your way of knowing that they may have something to hide.
