Why We Recommend Supplements & Supplements

In today's world that is becoming increasingly polluted, individuals are faced with an array of stressors that can take a toll on their overall health and wellness. Even with efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, many people are still struggling with nutrient deficiencies due to various factors such as stress, environmental toxins, and lifestyle choices.

Maintaining optimal nutrient levels is crucial to support our body's ability to handle these stressors, heal from the wear and tear of daily life, and promote overall well-being.

Ideally, we would be able to derive all the nutrients we need from the foods we eat. However, in the modern world, this is becoming increasingly challenging. A century ago, it was feasible to consume an abundance of whole, fresh, locally-grown, and unprocessed foods. People also enjoyed the benefits of homemade herbal remedies to boost immune function and lower stress.

Nowadays, achieving optimal nutrition solely from dietary sources seems nearly impossible. This shift is due to a multitude of reasons including soil depletion leading to nutrient-poor crops, over-reliance on processed foods, and the demands of our busy lifestyles just to name a few. Thus, supplementation with vitamins, minerals, and herbs has become a necessary strategy to ensure our bodies receive the necessary nutrients to function optimally and cope with daily stressors.

Could You Have Nutritional Deficiencies Contributing To Symptoms?

The industrialization of our food production, hybridization of crops, processing, and shipping crops to market means these foods contain fewer nutrients. In addition, these mass farming techniques deplete the soil so the crops contain fewer nutrients.

The abundance of processed foods with added preservatives and chemicals is a trade-off between convenience and nutrition, with nutrition being the loser. Processed foods high in HFCS, preservatives, artificial colorings and additives also rob the body of nutritional stores needed to process these toxic ingredients.

Our environment and lifestyle including pollutants, toxins  and even psychological stress, put an extra strain on our bodies and create nutritional deficiences.

Nutritional Supplements

Navigating the world of supplements can be daunting, with the plethora of choices and often contradictory reports appearing in studies and the media. One day a particular supplement is heralded as beneficial, and the next day it's seemingly dismissed as unnecessary or even harmful.

This confusion underscores the importance of turning to medical-grade supplements over standard ones typically found in drugstores. Regular store-bought supplements often fall short in providing the required nutrient levels and are not third-party tested, raising concerns about their quality, efficacy, and safety. On the other hand, medical-grade supplements are held to rigorous quality standards. They not only ensure the correct nutrient amounts but also undergo third-party testing for quality assurance. Furthermore, medical-grade supplements offer greater transparency with a medical professional on staff to oversee production and quality control. Therefore, when considering supplementation, it's crucial to opt for high-quality, medical-grade products to truly benefit your health and wellbeing.
