NUTRITION WHY’S #24: WHY SUPPLEMENTS? You need supplements, because no one eats a perfect diet all the time. To get all the vitamins and minerals you need every day, you would have to eat a large variety of fruits and vegetables as well as many other foods. Supplements provide what is missing but do not make up for a very poor diet with unbalanced macronutrients. Since it is hard for many people to get all their protein from foods, protein is also a supplement which combined with resistance exercise can build muscle. Supplements like green tea and caffeine can increase energy. Fish oil supplements can help balance omega-3 and omega-6 fats in the body. Phytonutrient supplements can optimize antioxidants in the eyes, brain, joints, and heart. Nitric Oxide (NO)helps maintain healthy circulation and supplements can promote NO formation. It used to be said that you could get everything you need from the basic food groups, but today we know that is no longer true. Taking supplements in the right amounts every day starting with a multivitamin/multimineral with Phytonutrients is a great way to insure that you get what your body needs along with Balanced Nutrition and a Healthy Active Lifestyle!! #drdavidheber #supplements #vitamins #minerals #phytonutrients to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
