SNACKS AND MORE TO IMPROVE HEALTH
WHY TAKE VITAMINS, MINERALS OR OTHER SUPPLEMENTS?
Good Health is not automatic. Few of us get all the nutrients we need to maintain our health from our diet. Many of us get substances which actually decrease our body's equilibrium and can cause disease or toxic conditions. Anytime we know our bodies will be pressured by a life event, whether emotional, physical, or environmental, we can improve the outcome by anticipating what additional help our bodies can use.
Our bodies need vitamins and minerals to perform specific functions. However, our bodies cannot make vitamins and minerals and so we must get them from our diet or from high-quality supplements. Many of us may benefit from daily supplementation of vitamins A, B, C, D, and E and of the minerals calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and iron. Our bodies may also function better by supplementing some of the compounds our bodies can make: amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), lipoic acid, coenzyme Q, phospholipids, or digestive enzymes.
