To help supplement the diet, try a superfood complex. Also start eating healthy. Nothing is nutritionally as complete or balanced as whole foods. They provide a synergy of nutrition: amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The healthiest, most nutritiously balanced diet comes from whole foods.
Try eating a diet of whole foods like fruits, vegetables and fresh meats. The general store used to be a farmer’s market full of fresh produce but today’s grocery stores are full of aisles displaying processed, prepackaged convenience foods that are only really helpful during food emergencies.
If you eat large portions that are full of extra fat and empty calories such as fast, fried and prepackaged foods because you are hungry and nothing else is available, you may receive some energy but not the healthiest for the body. Foods made with trans-fats and lots of vegetable oils are not healthy; they don’t always contain balanced and complete nutrition.
Vitamins and Minerals
When you don’t have the funds for the best quality whole foods and opt for cheap, fast meals on the go, health is often sacrificed. To ensure that you obtain vitamins and minerals, supplement the diet daily with a complete multivitamin supplement, best to consume with food such as your evening meal.
Also, supplement the diet with healthy fats such as essential omega-3 fatty acids, the building blocks of the brain and an important part of cell membranes. Some diets may not provide the proper balance of fats. A good quality fish-oil supplement rich in omega-3s will counterbalance the over-consumption of omega-6s, trans-fats and saturated fats, and restore health and wellness. Res-Q 1250+ is highly recommended; it provides vitamin D plus omega-3, a good type of fat that supports a healthy heart.
Limit consumption of processed foods that are not healthy. For example, canned foods may contain Bisphenol A found inside the metal of the tin can. This toxin can leach into the food. Eating a can of soup daily may increase the risk of liver, diabetes and heart disease. Microwave popcorn contains harmful chemicals that vaporize when the popcorn is cooked.
Raw milk will always, to some extent, carry some degree of heath risk (especially if the cow is sick) due to its natural bacterial content; however, some of the bacteria is actually beneficial. Since today’s milk is processed to remove bacteria, though, the pasteurization process can remove the beneficial bacteria lactobacilli. To help restore this beneficial probiotic, a dietary supplement may be helpful.
Additionally, many people drink milk for the calcium; supplements may better help increase calcium levels, especially with milk prices rising or for those who do not consume enough dairy to obtain adequate vitamin D and calcium intake.
