8 reasons to use supplements

Updated: May 13, 2020

Consuming whole foods, real, raw food daily seems not possible for most people, however, supplements regime should always be the last resort, like an insurance that you're doing the best for yourself and your family. I have listed reasons when is the best for you to take supplements:

1️.  TO ELIMINATE NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES: you need to nourish your body with the best quality food first. However, this can be difficult in our fast-paced world with people who are busy or unsure where to start. People who won’t make the time to prep food. Along with easy access to fast food that is heavy in refined and processed ingredients and little to no nutritional value.  Supplements can help fill the gap and provide us with at least the minimum needed nutrients.

2️ TO GET ENOUGH VITAMIN, MINERALS, ESSENTIAL FAT, AND ANTIOXIDANT SUPPORT FOR OUR UNIQUE NEEDS: Everyone’s nutrient needs are different. It is naive to take the recommended doses of any vitamins or supplements and assume you’re getting enough for your own health benefits. Some may require more or less depending on their diet and only through careful study and consultation with a healthcare practitioner can you determine if you’re meeting your own needs.

3️ TO FIGHT FREE RADICALS: some supplements have antioxidant effects. This means they counteract the damage done to the body by environmental pollutants (such as smog in cigarette smoke  ) and the body‘s natural waste production.

4️ TO AID IN FAT LOSS: In recent scientific research, replacing saturated fats with fish oil supplements can aid in the reduction of abdominal fat.

5️ TO INCREASE ENERGY LEVELS: In organic whole food diets, combined with a healthy lifestyle, you can meet most of your needs, but how many of us are living this way? Depending on individual needs, supplementation may be necessary for more energy. 

6️ TO ASSIST ELITE ATHLETES: some athletes train at high intensity for prolonged hours, which deplete their stores of nutrients. 

7️ TO SUPPORT GRACEFUL AGING: The correct multivitamin taken once or twice a day can make you look and feel years younger

8️ TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ILLNESS: it has been shown that certain supplements may help to fight and reduce many diseases. Many studies have shown that fish oil supplements can act as an anti-inflammatory agent in the body. It is especially protective for the heart and has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack dramatically
