Nutritional Supplements

Nutrients are vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs and carbohydrates.
Most nutrients the body cannot make on its own; therefore,
proper consumption of them is essential for good health.

When are nutritional supplements needed?

Nutritional supplementation is necessary when a lack of vitamins and minerals are consumed. As Americans we tend to eat a great deal of “empty calorie” foods. We consume a lot of foods, but not the right things. Foods that are processed and that have high levels of refined sugars, trans fatty acids and caffeine are all categorized as “junk food”—empty calorie foods. Other reasons for supplementation are stress, environmental toxins such as exposure to chemicals, and vaccinations. With the increase of these, more and more cases of deficiencies are occurring. Since nutritional deficiency is a cause in “killer” diseases such as coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis and colitis, it is imperative to replenish these nutrients and eliminate the cause of deficiency.

Some symptoms of nutritional deficiency are impaired disease resistance, premature aging, fatigue, nervousness, mental exhaustion, confusion, anemia, muscle weakness and other physiological and psychological issues.
