Maintain Health With Whole Food Supplements
As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day. Americans are overfed andunder-nourished.
We eat plenty, but we are still starving. The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with
the nutrition they need to survive and be healthy. We are starving our bodies and we are sick.
We suffer from diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, and the list goes on and on.
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability of keeping itself healthy. If properly fed and given the right nutrients, the human body is designed to repair itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements. made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with the nutrients we are not getting from our diet—all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess—in the way that nature intended, in a whole food form.
Only whole food supplements complete the nutrition gap. Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods. When concentrated correctly, the foods supply a multitude of nutrients. These nutrients work synergistically, meaning they work together, to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health. A word of advice: Not all whole food supplements are the same.
Many whole food supplements available in today’s marketplace range in quality. Companies are riding the wave of supplement popularity rather than focusing on commitment and quality.
Standard Process Supplements for Health Maintenance
Catalyn® – Multivitamin
This multivitamin was developed in 1929 by Dr. Royal Lee, founder of Standard Process.
He believed that by using whole foods, a supplement was much more effective and more easily assimilated by the body than its isolated counterparts. Catalyn provides nutrients from whole foods, as well as selected individual components to promote optimal nutrition.
Tuna Omega-3 Oil – Source of essential fatty acids
The tuna is sustainably harvested through dolphin-safe methods. Tuna is naturally high in DHA and provides a 5:1 ratio of DHA to EPA—similar to the ratio found in breast milk.
DHA and EPA are omega-3 essential fatty acids that can’t be made by the body and must be obtained from our diet. DHA and EPA are “good” fats—meaning they’re associated with good health and have a variety of beneficial roles in the body. The best dietary sources of EPA and DHA are cold water marine animals (like tuna, salmon, and calamari).
Trace Minerals-B12 provides your body with trace minerals that may be lacking in your diet.
Trace Minerals-B12 supplies manganese, iodine, zinc, copper, and iron. Among other functions,
these trace minerals support ligament, cartilage, and bone structure, immune and thyroid function,
fat metabolism, and calcium utilization.
