Supplements/Herbs: Filling the Gaps
Eating 12 oranges today is the equivalent of eating one orange from the 1950s, micronutrient wise.
Let’s back this up a second… What is a micro nutrient and why is it important?
Micronutrients are essential nutrients required by the body in small amounts for proper functioning, and overall health. They include vitamins and minerals, such as iron, zinc, calcium, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin D, and many others, while macronutrients like carbohydrates, proteins and fats provide the bulk of energy. Micronutrients play crucial roles in various bodily processes, including metabolism, growth, immune function, and maintenance of tissues and organs. Consuming a balanced diet, that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, helps ensure an adequate intake of micronutrients.
But here’s the hard truth that no one is talking about that is radically true… The soil our food is grown in is suffering horribly with its own lack of nutrients. It is depleted of all the symbiotic mineral rich ingredients that plants soak in and we take advantage of through ingestion.
As a result, we must fill the gaps we are missing.
Adding supplements, and herbal remedies to your daily regiment can add value to your life for the following reasons:
1. Nutritional Support: Supplements can provide essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that may be lacking in a regular diet. They can help bridge the nutritional gap and support overall health and well-being… Fill the gaps
