Why We Need Supplements
People usually resist taking supplements. I hear a lot of sighing and whining when supplements are recommended to clients. Usually people are imagining volumes of pills to take and the costs of supplements adding up, over the months ahead.
Yes, supplements are voluminous at times, but often doesn't have to be. Yes, they can become expensive for some. With good planning an efficient system of supplementation can be lesser in cost.
With all this said, I think it becomes a matter of priority. For the cost of a months' worth of cigarettes or the costs of cable TV, you can have most supplements you would benefit from, for the month or two.
A careful plan should be provided to you by an experienced nutritionist or dietician. When you understand the benefits of supplements and how improved your life would be, you will have more motivation to use supplements for the rest of your life!
The key reason we need supplements are to replace or enhance what our food habits bring to the table. Absolutely NO food plan can provide everything we need. Our food supply is deficient in nutrients. Our bodies often refuse to utilize what is available in our diets. Stress, illness, lifestyle issues create a bigger demand for key supplements and elements (minerals).
Scientists have determined that each of us have different needs for various nutrients and minerals.
A consumer should be aware that our bodies have differing needs that should be managed as we age.
When we are deficient of nutrients, adverse responses occur in our bodies and thus, illnesses and even premature aging starts to flourish.
In a good preventative medicine program, or an anti-aging program, nutrients and elements are assessed and suggested to patients. If the topic is ignored or under-utilized, then the patients should shop elsewhere.
I personally believe in key replenishments. Daily my regimen includes the following:
a multi-vitamin, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B complex, hormone precursors like DHEA, Tribulus,and others, extra calcium, zinc, and other key minerals that my body needs. I also swear by brain enhancers like the product Neuro Tone by Douglas Labs. Probotics (acidophilus) is highly recommended for gastro-intestinal health and there are others I would take depending on my goals and health, e.g., amino acids, anti-oxidants, sleep aids, and others. I will not say how much I take because each of us have individual needs. This is why most people need to consult a professional when making choices about supplementation. DO NOT listen to a personal trainer that does not have advanced education, nor rookie supplement entrepreneurs.
If you desire recommendations or good product lines, you should do research on the topic or call me.
