Supplements & Vitamins
Do You Need Nutritional Supplements?
In a perfect world, no one would need supplements. But given the poor quality of our food supply and the high load of toxins, most of us fall short of essential nutrients and enzymes for the biochemistry to run our bodies.
Today, even with our “enriched food,” over 92 percent of Americans are deficient in one or more vitamins. That means they receive less than the MINIMUM amount necessary to prevent deficiency diseases.
The foods you eat no longer contain the nutrient levels you require for optimal health for many reasons. Crops are raised in the soil where nutrients have been depleted. Plants are treated with pesticides and other chemicals so they no longer have to fight to live, which further diminishes their nutrient levels and their phytonutrient content. Animals are cooped up in pens or giant feed lots instead of roaming free eating the nutrient-rich wild grains and grasses they once consumed.
To complicate this further all of us are exposed to hazardous toxins and chemicals that poison our bodies, we live with too much stress, we don’t sleep enough, we don’t exercise enough, and we are inflamed making the nutritional demands on our bodies even heavier.
A good skincare routine goes a long way in keeping your skin healthy. And this includes nourishing your skin from the inside out. Not having a healthy, balanced diet can lead to certain vitamin deficiencies which will, in turn, impact your skin.
