Why do we need Supplements

Filling the Nutritional Gap

90% of people don’t get the recommended amount of important nutrients from food alone. Most of us fail to meet dietary recommendations due to strict dieting, poor appetite, or changing nutritional needs.

Supplementation is intended to bridge the nutritional gap, so that we maintain the proper balance of nutrients from food and supplementation. This will enhance the nutrient density of your diet and make sure you are obtaining the right amount of nutrients tailored to your dietary needs.

Erratic eating habits, eating processed junk food, and stress contribute to poor digestion, making it difficult for our bodies to extract all the nutrients it needs from food. While supplementation cannot replace a poor diet, it can help prevent the damage poor eating habits are causing.

Modern farming techniques use fertilisers that deplete the soil and rob the plants of essential nutrients. Fertile soil is a crucial agricultural element for absorbing the proper amounts of minerals. Without this, the plant cannot form essential vitamins.

Hybrid crops can provide lower nutrient food and are often used, even on organic farms. They yield more food per acre, but the crops often have much lower nutrient content.

Modern fertilisers don’t supply enough trace elements
Back in the day, manures were used extensively for fertiliser. Today, superphosphate fertilisers have largely replaced manure. These contain nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus, but are deficient in many other nutrients naturally contained in manure.

Pesticides and herbicides damage soil microorganisms and reduce the nutrition of the crops

You are not powerless against soil depletion.

Grow your own or if not possible, support farmers who practice organic, sustainable farming, healthy foods matter for your health and that of your family, the farmers, and the planet. Go to farmers’ markets, buy organic, and visit the local produce section of supermarkets.

Don’t forget quality supplements. Even the best intentions may leave you lacking in various nutrients. That’s when you need to consider adding nutritional supplements to your daily routine. Take an inventory of your dietary habits for several days and identify which nutrients you may need to add.
