We all know about junk food, but what about junk supplements?
HOW NAKED ARE YOUR SUPPLEMENTS?
We all know about junk food, but what about junk supplements? Have you ever considered the quality and transparency of the supplements you choose?
In a world where health and well-being have taken centre stage, many of us are turning to supplements to support our overall vitality. With an abundance of choice available, it's essential to navigate the world of dietary supplements wisely.
We aren’t what we eat... We are what we digest, absorb and utilise!
Naturally sourced supplements harness the complex synergy of bioactive compounds found in whole foods and botanical sources. These supplements provide a holistic approach to nourishing the body, delivering a comprehensive blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals.
Supplements sourced from nature are easily recognised by the body leading to high nutrient absorption and utilisation whilst minimising any side effects or potential medication interactions.
CAN SYNTHETIC SUPPLEMENTS MIMIC NATURE'S DESIGN?
The truth is, synthetic supplements attempt to replicate the benefits of their natural counterparts through laboratory processes. However, they often fall short in capturing the full spectrum of compounds present in nature.
Synthetic supplements also behave differently to naturally occurring nutrients and therefore, they are not recognised by our bodies in the same way. This inevitably leads to reduced absorption rates and bioavailability, potentially making them ineffective.
WHAT ABOUT SAFETY?
The potential for long-term risks to health far outweighs any health benefits or cost savings associated with consuming synthetic vitamins.
Synthetic supplements are often made using industrial petrochemicals and solvents, which can increase the toxic load on the body. Worse yet, the body may not recognise the isolated nutrient, consider it a foreign body, and target it for removal!
These supplements often contain very high amounts of nutrients to make up for the body's inability to absorb them; these high dosages could lead to health issues due to overdosing.
