The modern diet is drastically different compared to that of our ancestors. We have been bombarded by a plethora of processed foods, foods which our bodies were not built to use. There is no doubt that most people do not get enough nutrient-rich foods. Here are some startling facts for you:
“On any given day, 46% of people do not eat even 1 fruit, 24% have not had any dairy products, and 18% have not eaten even 1 vegetable.” “According to a 2009 CDC report, only 14% of U.S. adults and 9.5% of U.S. teens are eating the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables daily.”
No matter how well you try to eat, it’s impossible to get proper nutrition through diet alone due to a variety of factors:
– Poor food quality due to soil mineral depletion, overfarming, and overuse of herbicides and pesticides.
– Transportation of fresh produce
– Abundance and affordability of processed foods
– Busy lifestyles that rely on quick meals
Experts agree that the best way to ensure balanced nutrition is to take a daily supplement that will provide the body with the micronutrients it needs. Selecting the right supplement can be a daunting task.
I found a wonderful company that has a patented technology that addresses the two critical flaws in mineral supplementation – absorption and excess free radical creation – to help ensure you get more of what you take a multivitamin-mineral for.
Plants absorb raw minerals from the soil and bind them into a form that is easier for our bodies to absorb and utilize. This patented technology binds minerals and fibers (just like fruits and vegetables). This process helps ensure that the body can more easily absorb and benefit from these critical nutrients. This means you are getting maximum absorption and antioxidant protection.
Here is a wonderful comparison that shows the absorption percentage of the vitamins I take compared to store-bought brands of vitamins.
