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.
