Why Everyone Needs Supplements

You have switched to eating healthy diet, have reduced your stress levels, upped your exercise and started getting more sleep. Shouldn’t these lifestyle changes be enough to ensure that you are well on the path to a healthy existence?

Quite simply, nutritional supplements are just what the name suggests; ‘completing or enhancing something’. Though, supplement intake does not encourage poor dietary habits, a negative attitude, a lack of exercise and poor sleep.

However, nutritional supplementation can make a dramatic impact on our health and quality of life when done right. You may be thinking, ‘well, I’m doing everything right, so why would I need to add supplements on top of that?’
If you want to fight disease and achieve maximum life span, you can’t do it with diet alone. You need the extra nutritional boost that only supplements can provide, and again the reality is, even when we’re very conscientious about eating a well balanced diet, we can often fall short of the mark nutritionally.

Yes, technically, a whole foods diet should provide us with most of the goodies that we need for optimum health, but unfortunately, there’s a whole host of modern day environmental and lifestyle issues that make it much harder than it was for our ancestors.

Some foods that we eat because we think they’re healthful have actually been stripped of their nutrients before they get to our plates. Whole wheat loses 75 percent of its B vitamins, minerals, and fiber when it is milled into flour.
Likewise, rice loses most of its vitamins, minerals, and fiber when it’s polished to turn it from brown to white. Even the soil that these and other plant-derived foods grow in is often nutrient-depleted.

In essence, our fishing and farming methods have changed drastically. In the past, harvests fully embodied the vital nutrients of the soil and sea, and those nutrients nourished people fully. With the combination of modern intensive farming methods, our modern lifestyles and the urban environments we live in, there are many reasons it may be necessary to consider adding supplements to your health regime.

Diet is not the sole force behind the national plague of nutrient deficiencies.

Other factors include the following:

  • Alcohol consumption (depletes B vitamins, vitamin C, most minerals, and antioxidants)
  • Allergies and infections (deplete vitamins A and C and zinc, among other nutrients)
  • Exposure to air pollutants and other toxins (depletes antioxidants)
  • Smoking (depletes antioxidants)
  • Stress (depletes all nutrients, especially B vitamins and vitamin

Chronic nutrient deficiencies invariably lead to serious health problems. Unfortunately, when heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, or some other serious deficiency-driven condition develops, neither doctor nor patient is likely to realize that the symptoms had begun years before.

Many nutritional supplements have been proven to prevent or aid in the treatment of these health conditions. Let’s take a look at what specifically has changed and how this influences our need to take supplements:

Soil depletion reduces the nutrient content of crops

In many areas of the world, land has been intensively farmed without allowing nutrients to naturally replenish in the soil. Some areas with low quality soil are also being farmed where plants might not have normally grown well too

If you find yourself eating on the go or cooking quick and easy meals when there’s a lot going on in your life, it’s likely you’ll have some nutritional gaps to fill.

In fact, research shows that as many as 90% of people don’t get their recommended daily amount of nutrients from food alone!

A supplement like Forever Supergreens™ provides an ideal blend of nutrients from more than 20 fruits and vegetables to help you fill those gaps!
