Nutrient Supplementation

By now, most people have heard of the beneficial effects of Fish Oil and Vitamin D. We’ve been recommending nutrient supplementation since we started. You see, even with a great diet, it’s still hard to get enough of the vitamins and minerals the body needs at a cellular level. Our food supply just isn’t as nutritious as it used to be. Couple that with the increased stress, pesticides, heavy metals, and other inflammatory insults that our bodies must endure, and we find that we just don’t have enough of the raw ingredients to perform at our best. Sure, we’ll get by without a nutrient deficiency. But that’s not the same as having a healthy supply of micronutrients so that your body can perform at it’s best.

Let’s take the example of Vitamin D. At the lower levels, it does it’s basic job of maintaining bone health and preventing diseases like Rickett’s. But when Vitamin D levels are optimized, it boosts the immune system and helps DNA repair itself correctly, helping to fight illness and prevent cancer.

Nutrients such as selenium, B-vitamins, Vitamins A, C, E, Coenzyme Q10, chromium, alpha-lipoic acid, glutathione, phosphytidyle serine, zinc, and a whole host of others allow your body to perform vital functions in all of your organs.

Getting as many nutrients from great food is always recommended, because in its natural state, the vitamins and minerals absorb the best (and who knows about all the nutrients in food that we don’t yet know about!). Today, it’s nearly impossible to get optimum amounts from food. Supplementation is necessary for your body to be its best. Based on your unique needs and symptoms, we recommend the nutrients and supplements that will help you body achieve health and wellness.
