Effective use of supplements in short form

  • “Supplements can enhance a diet where there are shortfalls, but a handful of vitamin, mineral or other dietary supplements can never take the place of a healthy diet,” says David Grotto, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association (ADA).
  • Any discussion of the effectiveness of vitamins and supplements should begin with analysing eating habits and dietary consumption. Some things will need to be eliminated, while some nutrients will need to be added. – Garey J. Simmons, Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach

If we start with the statement that most Americans cannot get enough nutrients from their 3 meals a day, we can move forward. Unless you have the ability to cook and prepare food for yourself at home and you are trained in how to get the most from your meals then there will be shortfalls. Especially if you are out of the home, at work at the office, have a short lunch break and rely on the fast food restaurants that are around, there will be shortfalls. Shortfalls in fiber, in protein, in natural healthy fatty acids and the good kind of carbohydrates. Not all proteins are created equal. Not all carbs are of the same effectiveness. Not all fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and promoting health. 

This is why we supplement. This is why we must supplement. Why we can’t really do without it. There will be the odd case of a farmer in New Hampshire that grows everything organically and jars and pickles the product for the lean Winter months but for the rest of us, we need to have some supplements in our diet. 

If you don’t think supplements are effective then your experience may be accurate to the extent that you’ve tried but didn’t really know the proper dosage or the supplements were bargain counter or inferior to what can be found by working with good companies that have health and not profits as their central mission.  This is not to say profit and health are mutually exclusive. For a company to stick around and be viable part of a good supply chain, the company needs to make money. 

It’s unfortunate that the profit motive has tainted industries to the point that we feel that it is a necessary evil. 

The National Institute of Health says, “The majority of adults in the United States take one or more dietary supplements either every day or occasionally. Today’s dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, and many other products. Dietary supplements come in a variety of forms: traditional tablets, capsules, and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars. Popular supplements include vitamins D and E; minerals like calcium and iron; herbs such as echinacea and garlic; and specialty products like glucosamine, probiotics, and fish oils.”

Here’s my list of must use for anyone who is breaking the barrier of 55 and moving into their senior years. But remember, good habits start when you are younger. All my kids eat better than I do since they’ve been raised with better knowledge than we had when I was growing up. 

  1. High Potency and Pure Omega-3 Fish Oil
  2. Ubiquinol CoQ10 for replacement of this energy catalyst (on the cellular level.) 
  3. A broad spectrum, plant-based multi-vitamin
  4. Vitamin D3
  5. Vitamin C as appropriate

Other needed supplements per case basis:

  • Joint Support
  • Berberine for Blood Sugar Management
  • Specialty items for IBS, for Menopause, for Prostate Issues, etc.

How it Works

Effectiveness

If you don’t eat a nourishing variety of foods, some supplements may help you get sufficient amounts of important nutrients. Nonetheless, supplements can not fill in the selection of foods that are essential to a healthy diet..
 
Scientific proof reveals that some dietary supplements are valuable for total health and also for managing some health and wellness conditions. For instance, calcium and also vitamin D are necessary for maintaining bones strong and minimizing bone loss; folic acid reduces the danger of particular birth defects; and omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils may aid some people with heart disease. Various other supplements need more research to determine their value. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not establish whether dietary supplements are effective before they are marketed.

5 Star Reviews

Latest labs indicate I have dropped cholesterol from 222 to 172 since April.  Still taking 8 Omega 3 and 3 Garlic each day.  Plus is I have NO joint pain.  Was 78 on 3 June.  If you need a testimonial for Omega 3 do not hesitate to ask.  IT WORKS.”

I was on the phone with a customer who was ordering six more bottles of True Omega-3. I mentioned that I thought its one of the best prevention methods for staving off heart attack. He said, “I already had my heart attack and I thought this didn’t work even though I was taking Omega-3.” But you are ordering six bottles? “Yes, because my doctor said the only reason I survived the heart attack was because I was taking Omega-3. You see, my blood was thin enough to get to my heart even though I had a huge blockage.” And that’s true. Omega-3 is an excellent preventative supplement AND post cardiac arrest supplement. Omega-3 helps make it less likely of a 2nd cardiac event.
