It is possible to gain essential nutrients and vitamins from a balanced diet, however most people need to take nutritional supplements to fill in the gaps or boost body and mind functionality.
People who lead a healthy lifestyle filled with the essential nutrients their body needs to function at optimum levels, are likely to have a reduced risk of chronic diseases and other ailments.
Many of us lead busy lifestyles and opt for nutritional supplements. This is completely fine if they are choosing to purchase quality products over marketing campaigns.
Here are 3 reasons to make sure you are taking quality nutritional supplements!
Did you know you that as you age your ability to absorb nutrients from food decreases?
As your metabolic rate also declines with age, simply eating more nutritious food isn’t the answer – unless you are counteracting the calories with energy exertion. Nutritional Supplements are great for all ages when taken correctly. However, it is important to be aware of your nutritional needs and supplement requirements, especially if you are older. Medications can also interfere with nutrient absorption.
Are you an active person? Do you attend the gym daily or lead an active lifestyle?
When you exercise your body needs extra oxygen and energy which in turn requires a post workout refuel of essential nutrients. Active people will more often than not find they require additional nutritional supplements. If you are depleted in essential vitamins you may find your exercise performance can be hindered.
Modern day farming techniques can have an adverse effect on the nutrients obtained from food.
Thanks to fertilizers and other modern day farming chemicals, the soil in which crops are grown can be depleted of nutrients. This means that the plants have less nutrients to absorb. Compiled with the fact that most plants are not harvested fresh, by the time they get to our plates their nutrient content is far less than we think.
