Do I Really Need To Take Supplements? I Eat Healthily!
This is one of the most common questions I get asked by clients in the clinic.
After breaking down their diet and analysing the actual quality of nutrition is usually not even close to the recommended intake. Unfortunately due to the changes in food production over recent years, the quality of our fresh produce is not like it used to be. Nutritional deficiencies are on the rise along with the increase in incidence of diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Every body is busy and with this comes for the desire for convenience in regard to eating and meal preparation. Taking this into consideration most people want something that is easy to make, relatively cheap and tastes good. Unfortunately these options are not always healthy and in result we are seeing developed countries getting sicker.
So let me ask you, Did you eat at least 3 meals today which contained a good quality protein with fresh vegetables and a source of omega 3 fatty acids?
Were your snacks in between those meals made up of those same 3 key components?
If you said no, then I can assure you, you do need nutritional supplementation. Children, teenagers, young adults, middle aged and elderly all require adequate nutrition to live healthy and encourage a quality of life.
If you are low in energy, suffer with high stress or anxiety and you cannot fall asleep easily, you are in the right place. Want to more information about how you can improve your sleep and energy?
