Quality Nutritional Supplements Nowadays

If getting adequate high quality daily nutritional matters to you then live whole foods are your best source. It is important to get your nutrients from natural whole foods or from a high quality natural supplement.

Your body prefers to absorb vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from live whole foods. These are real whole foods in their natural, unprocessed state. Knowledgeable health and wellness experts agree that whole foods are better sources for your daily nutrition. Synthetic vitamins and minerals are simply not as good as what are found in nature. Your body will absorb and utilize the nutrition found in live natural whole foods more than what will be absorbed in a synthetic pill or manufactured liquid.

Most people do not get enough vitamins and minerals because they do not eat adequate amounts of fruits, vegetables and other whole foods in the diet on a daily basis. Observe your next 3 meals or snacks as you eat them. Is your plate colorful with fruits and vegetables? They are live whole foods rich in nutrition your body requires each day. Or is your plate loaded with processed foods, starches and meat that has no color. If this is the case, you are not getting the well rounded nutrition from whole foods your body deserves and needs.

How do you fix this dilemma if you are not able to eat healthy each day due your demanding lifestyle? There are now superior live whole food supplements that are available in capsules or in powdered form you can mix in water. Learn more about this proprietary manufacturing process that preserves the nutrients in whole foods so they can be used as convenient supplements.

Nutrition for a challenging Lifestyle

Many nutritional supplements can offer you a great way to get the additional nutrients you need for good health. Since there are so many supplements to choose from, it can be quite confusing and ineffective if you choose the wrong one. I believe the best types are live whole food supplements that are made from natural whole food sources without using preservatives.

These natural whole foods are usually concentrated mixtures of several varieties of whole foods and super foods. A better whole food supplement will contain naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, antioxidant compounds, amino acids, enzymes, essential fatty acids, fiber & phytonutrients.

Unfortunately many over the counter multi-vitamins are synthetic products and they do not get absorbed well into our bodies so their benefits can be very little. Many natural supplements like whole food supplements or herbal nutritional supplements have much higher absorption rates since the products are in their natural state and can be better recognized by the body.

We all know that we should be getting 5 to 14 servings of colorful vegetables and fruits in our diets each day. Most of us fail to follow this advice because with our hectic lifestyles because this just seems impossible. Using a convenient whole food supplement like a “The Feast” can help you get the necessary vegetables and fruits you need each day. It comes in a convenient vegetarian capsule if you are on the go or in a powder that you mix with water.

Beyond Fruits and Berries Nutrition

Fruits & berries are the most nutrient dense foods available. They provide a variety of advantages that go far beyond the scope of basic nutrition and have tremendous benefits throughout the entire human body. Studies have shown that the significant phytonutrient & antioxidant content of fruits & berries has a positive effect.

The phytonutrients that create the bright color of each fruit & berry are also responsible for their amazing benefits. The richer and more deeply colored the fruit or berry, the higher the variety & potency of nutrient levels. These nutrients can only come from live whole foods.

Each fruit & berry contain thousands of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, antioxidant compounds, amino acids, enzymes, essential fatty acids, fiber and phytonutrients.

Because these fruits and berries are not consumed on a regular basis, most people are not experiencing the extraordinary benefits they provide. “Beyond Berries” is a convenient nutritious product deigned to alleviate this dilemma.

Most importantly, the crucial nutrients contained in “Beyond Berries” are still alive and are very bioavailable. By providing each ingredient in its most natural whole food form, the natural plant enzymes and phosolipids necessary for nutrient absorption are present.

Nutritional Value of Barley Grass

Barley grass is a concentrated source of nearly three dozen vitamins and minerals. Barley grass is particularly rich in vitamins A, C, B1, B2, folic acid, and B12; calcium; iron; potassium; and chlorophyll. Unlike most plants, barley grass provides all nine essential amino acids that your body can't produce.

Barley grass and wheat grass leaves are very alkaline, so digesting them can help maintain the body's alkaline and acidity balance. Our cells cannot function properly if the pH moves out of a narrow range.

Barley grass is high in chlorophyll, which is known to help cleanse the body, fight infection, heal wounds, and promote the health of the circulatory, digestive and immune, detoxify the systems, and may be able to increase the number of red blood cells and the body's ability to use oxygen.

Barley Pure™ provides 100% pure juice powder concentrate from fresh young, certified organic barley grass. Barley grass provides one of the most balanced nutrient profiles of all green plants and is naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, amino acids, glycosylisovitexin, plant proteins, and active enzymes.
