Proper nutrition and supplementation is crucial in helping our children and our families to have a greater chance at optimal health. Toxins alone can even deplete our bodies from many necessary minerals, vitamins and enzyme activity that we need for our body to thrive. Therefore, supplements can be a huge help for making efforts to get our bodies into a state of harmony. Also, because of the modern way of farming, the quality of the soil isn’t what it used to be.
Our soil has always been a big part of what makes our produce so delicious, rich in vitamins and minerals, and so important for good microbiome health. A carrot today isn’t the same as a carrot from even 40 years ago due to the decline of quality soil. And that’s where supplements come in. Supplements can be like employees.
Some supplements may be “part time employees,” some may be “temp workers” that are only used for a very short amount of time, and others may be like “full time employees” that are needed because of the lack of essential nutrients in the diet or because of the body’s poor ability to absorb and utilize the food that is being eaten.
