For many years, the medical and scientific communities didn't believe that there was such a direct link between proper nutrition and superior health.
Then nutrition studies came along and we began learning how important vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are to good health. Through studying disease conditions, results showed that perhaps most people didn't get what they needed from their food choices and became deficient which led to illness. This is when researchers found out how important it is to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and high quality protein sources to maintain physical, mental and emotional health.
Then came the studies on individual vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Although they discovered each one provided particular benefits, they were not as effective as whole foods. They found that food is more than just a sum of its nutrient parts. Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables every day has superior health benefits because of the synergy of food. This means that all of the compounds in a piece of fruit or a vegetable work better together in your body to perform different jobs than taking the same individual vitamins.
That's what Carl Rehnborg founder of Nutrilite Organic Farms suspected over 80 years ago!
He was the first to produce a Whole Food Supplement.
Plant based, real food, fruit and vegetable supplements contain not only a far wider variety of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals than those you see offered on retail store shelves, but also the antioxidants and other phytonutrients, even the fiber, found in fresh raw fruits and vegetables. These varied nutrients work together in combination to provide you more of the nutritional benefits of eating healthful whole fruit and vegetables.
Do all you can with Food First
If your one of the 8 out of 10 people who do not eat the recommended 5-9 servings of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day, fill the gaps with Whole Food Supplements. Now that your aware of the link between nutrition and superior health, go back to my previous Blog on how to choose supplements.
