Diet > Why Take Nutritional Supplements?

There are many reasons and these are some of them.

The earth does not have all the mineral nutrients spread evenly over the surface of the planet as required by our bodies. Some areas are deficient in minerals which causes health problems for the plant and animal species that live in the area. In New Zealand an example is Boron. In some places this mineral is absent from the soil and in sheep on the farms in these areas there was a high incidence of arthritis as Boron is required in the diet to help metabolise calcium. The problem was identified by veterinary science and boron was prescribed as a cure for arthritis in sheep which worked.
The health supplement industry recognized the parallels between domestic animal diseases and human diseases and now we can purchase individual vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids to help us to maintain our good health.

There are other reasons;

We may not be getting a balanced diet and we need extra nutrients.
Infections or illness may have weakened our immune system
There may be more stress
There may be poisoning from pollutants, atmospheric, agricultural and industrial.
Pregnancy and breast feeding.
Heavy work load.
Extreme Sports.

It is recommended that with good diet and moderate exercise we all take on a regular basis a multi trace mineral formula.
In times of stress and ill health, take extra vitamins, enzymes and amino acids at the recommendation of your health care practitioner.
To avoid the need to supplement our diets, we must eat a wide variety of foods with preference to sea foods, including sea vegetables (seaweeds) which have a greater abundance of nutrients than land grown plants.
