Why I recommend quality supplements
I recommend supplements to most of my clients for a variety of reasons. Even if you are eating an exceptionally healthy diet, the nutrients in our food supply have been depleted due to over farming, transportation, processing, and overcooking. Medications, toxins, genetic variances and processed foods void of nutrition are additional reasons I would recommend supplementation.
The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is the average daily level of intake sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all healthy people. These values are set for healthy people to avoid disease but not necessarily optimum health. This also doesn’t take genetic variances that can effect if your body is able to break down the nutrients and use them efficiently.
It is also very important to know you are getting what you pay for. Our government doesn’t regulate supplements the same way it does for prescription drugs. Many over the counter supplements contain fillers, colors, lead or mercury, sugar/high fructose corn syrup and allergens. The form of the nutrient may be cheap and poorly absorbed by the body. For these reasons, I have researched and recommend a variety of products that get voluntary certifications to ensure you are not wasting your money.
For the above mentioned reasons, I highly recommend supplements from the online dispensary Natural Partners. You can set up an account using the access code MCN at the website www.npscript.com/mycorenutrition and receive 10% off every order.
