Reasons why everyone should take Supplements
Filling That 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 this 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.
Nutrient Absorption Declines With Age
As you age, malabsorption becomes a problem because your body does not have the same capability to break down and absorb nutrients as it used to.
You may also be taking more medications than you did when you were younger. Most modern medications actually deplete essential nutrients. Supplements can help restore this imbalance.
Toxins in Your Food & Environment
We live in the most toxic environment the modern world has ever seen!
The average person is exposed to 84,000 different chemicals each day. You need an additional boost of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants just to help your body get rid of those chemicals and maintain your health.
Toxins can be found in cleaning products, plastic water bottles, personal care products, and mercury dental fillings, just to name a few sources.
Our foods are also laden with artificial colors and preservatives, chemical additives like MSG, and artificial sweeteners. Our drinking water is full of all sorts of toxic organisms and chemicals, including fluoride, chlorine, bacteria, parasites, and even traces of pharmaceuticals!
Simply put, it’s impossible to get through an average day without constant toxic exposure.
These harmful chemicals and substances affect your immune system, hormones, gut microbiome, and more.
Supplements are necessary to fight off the negative effects of daily exposure to toxins by supporting your liver, immune system, gut lining, and brain health.

Exercise Increases Nutrient Needs
Are you an athlete or do you exercise frequently? Athletes require a lot of energy and nutrients to stay in shape. As you exercise, your body uses up the energy and nutrients that have been stored in your body.
It is vital to replenish these essential nutrients, fuel your energy levels, and promote recovery after an intense workout. That’s why athlete’s diets include tons of carbs and protein.

Poor Eating Habits
Erratic eating habits, eating processed junk food, and stress contribute to poor digestion. This makes 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.
Nutrient Depletion of Soil & Crops
The soil used to grow our crops has been over-farmed and saturated with pesticides, so our fruits and vegetables lose more nutrition content with every harvest.
Thanks to modern farming techniques, studies show the nutrient density of our fruits and vegetables has decreased significantly from half a century ago.2
We’ve traded high-volume production for our health.
To put this into perspective, you need to eat eight oranges to get the same amount of vitamins that used to be in one orange from your grandparents’ generation!
Here’s why: Pesticides that protect our crops from bugs also train our produce to be weak.
Fruits and veggies create healthy phytonutrients and polyphenols as a natural form of self-preservation. Pesticides mean they don’t need that preservation, so we also miss the benefits of these nutrients when we eat them.
As if these causes of nutrient depletion aren’t bad enough, fruits and vegetables are typically harvested before they’re fully ripe, then transported long distances through air-polluted traffic to get to the grocery store weeks later.
So, by the time you pick your fruits or vegetables out from the grocery bin, they’ve already lost a lot of nutritional value. Smart supplements can replace what’s missing.
