6 Reasons Why Everyone Should Take Nutritional Supplements.


In a perfect world, imagine you get plenty of sleep, stay hydrated, and eat all your fruits and vegetables. Why does my body need supplements? I have all the vitamins and nutrients I need, right? Wrong. 6 powerful reasons show that WHY you need to take dietary supplements.

1) Filling That Nutritional Gap

90% of people don’t get the recommended amount of important nutrients from food alone

2) Nutrient Absorption Declines With Age

As you age, malabsorption becomes a problem because your body doesn’t have the same capability to break down and absorb nutrients as it used to.

3) Avoid Harmful Chemicals

Warning! Pesticides and herbicides used to farm our food, chemicals found in our water supply,These harmful chemicals create free radicals that attack our digestive and immune system. Supplements like antioxidants help fight those free radicals.

4) 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.

5) Poor Eating Habits

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.

6) Prevent Expensive Health Issues

Healthcare providers are encouraging people to look for disease prevention instead of disease treatment.
