Why You Should Throw Away Your Supplements
I just finished my working on my new article “Common Nutrient Deficiencies” for the May issue of OnFitness Magazine and was enjoying diving back into some of my micronutrient curriculum from Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition & Healing Arts for some of my article.
It’s amazing how misunderstood the supplement industry still is.
It’s important to understand that you cannot isolate a micronutrient compound chemically in a lab using forms of processing that destroy nutrient properties, sell it as a singular vitamin compound, and expect that this altered synthetic vitamin will produce the same results in the human body biologically as a micronutrient does in its natural form.
It’s just not possible, and here’s why: micronutrients have co-factors, enzymes, etc. that interact together in unison to ensure absorption and efficacy.
The human body is an ever-changing biochemical environment where nothing happens with one singled out nutrient as the catalyst, it is the unison of many nutrients that drives internal metabolic actions and processes.
The supplement industry is a billion+ industry making money selling “isolated” synthetic vitamins (not nutrients!!) in pill form that often do little other than generate more nutrient deficiencies in your body because of how they’re produced.
We began evolving our micronutrient approach when we worked on naturally healing of my auto immune disease and metabolic damage in 2008 and began to learn more during that process about the science behind different forms of micronutrients available to consumers and their production processes when I returned to holistic nutrition school.
Just as with your food, when it comes to your vitamins (micronutrients), quality is always the single most important factor towards your results, no matter whether your goal is to naturally heal, balance or build the body. We always advise our clients you’re better off to invest in one quality potent therapeutic-grade whole food form nutraceutical or nutraceutical blend, than invest the same in many poor quality synthetic consumer-grade denatured vitamins.
You want to seek our micronutrients in their pure, potent whole food form, preferably therapeutic level from a qualified healthcare practitioner, in the right combinations for absorption and efficacy. These are truthful nutrients vs. what products are available typically at consumer retail supplement chains.
This is an area Damian and I are both really passionate about helping others to improve their skills in to get a better result our of their health and body experience in an individualized way. When you do potent, quality nutraceuticals in a made-for-you way, you can improve many human body processes naturally, including sleep, hormone balancing, fat loss, digestion, energy, mood, immune strength, skin health, injury recovery, and so on, when combined with a potent functional nutrition approach to your food as well.
To get a better metabolic result from the human body, we need to give it the potent tools, or catalysts, in the right combinations and quality to create those results we’re looking for! Many people are taking the wrong types of vitamin, poor quality lines, not pairing them properly, under dosing what they need, and just overall ill-prepared to know how to negotiate the world of supplements/vitamins/nutraceuticals. And these mistakes all contribute to why they may not be feeling better, healing quicker, getting better natural fat loss.
Expect to see more education and support from us this year on micro-nutrients from our E3 Energy Evolved lifestyle and we will also be sharing with you on our website our own practitioner-grade nutraceutical line that we support our distance and in-person clients with.
