Should I use daily vitamin supplements? Considering today's eating habits and food supply, the answer is a resounding "YES"!
Now notice we said "considering today's eating habits". Ideally you can get all the nutrients your body needs without turning to a pill. Nature can do a sufficient job. But unfortunately, our food supply today has had a negative influence on our eating habits. So for most, it is wise to turn to supplementation.
We see it in the paper, online and on tv. Americans are overweight and obese...and the rates continue to climb. A primary reason: we are overfed and undernourished.
Only 2% of us are getting the proper daily amount of fruits and vegetables. You want some other facts:
33% of our calories come from fast food
Top vegetables eaten are ketchup, french fries and iceberg lettuce
Approximately 38% decline in nutrients of garden crops the last 50 years
It's no wonder that 90% of Americans are lacking key nutrients in their diet.
Today's fast-paced world, hectic work and family schedules can make it tough to eat right. This added stress...not to mention aging...increase your body's need for proper supplementation. But it can be extemely difficult and confusing which supplements to take.
