Why take nutritional supplements?

Why should you consider taking Young Living Supplements? to answer this question I will first explain bioavailability. Bioavailability is the extent to which a  substance or supplement in this case can be used or absorbed by the body. See the image below for an example.



Next are a few other reasons we can all use the high quality supplements Young Living offers.

Depleted Soils. Even if you eat a healthy, predominantly plant-based diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, chances are good (unless you’re consuming everything organic) the food comes from soils that have insufficient mineral content.

A Kushi institute analysis of nutrient data from 1975 to 1997 —just in 22 years—found average calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent, iron levels 30 percent, and vitamin C dropped 30 percent. Iron down 22 percent. Potassium 14 percent. You would have to eat 8 oranges today to get the same amount of Vitamin A that your grandparents got. (scientific American) It is now 2018!

So maybe you can’t get enough from plants… but you can from meat. When plants contain fewer nutrients, the animals that eat them are also malnourished. A study from the Journal of Nutrition and Health found copper levels are down 90 percent in dairy, 55 percent in meat, and 76 percent in vegetables.

Water… also depleted of minerals because of the plants and modern production methods. Then there are town filtration systems. Many of them remove important minerals—like magnesium which is essential for 300 biochemical reactions in the body.

Long Transit Time for Delivery. Most foods are picked weeks and even months before we see them in our markets. The shorter the time between harvest and consumption the higher the nutritional value. To assist with this I always suggest that my customers buy as much of their food as possible from local growers to reduce transit time and improve the nutritional value of the food they’re eating. That in itself though does not always provide all the nutrition a body may need.

Overcooking Our Foods. Many nationalities especially Americans have a bad habit of overcooking our food. This results in a massive loss of nutritional value, meaning far fewer vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes to go around. What’s more, eating these depleted foods over time creates its own set of health problems.  I suggest consuming fruits and vegetables in as close to a raw state as possible.

Not Eating Regular Meals. So many people skip meals. Grabbing fast food, a bagel or doughnut while slamming down some coffee and rushing to work doesn’t make for a nutrient dense meal. Making up for it later in the day at an “all-you-can-eat” buffet is not in the best interest of our bodies either, as it puts a lot of undue stress on the digestive system and can eventually cause a lot of uncomfortable situations to crop up in your body.

Normal Aging = Digestion Issues. As we age, our bodies produce fewer enzymes, including all the important ones needed to properly digest and assimilate the foods we eat. Eventually, this results in other health and wellness complaints.

Work, School, Family, Financial Stress = Compromised Immune System.  All of this stress takes a toll on your body and weakens your immune system. Taking young Living nutritional supplements can help bridge that gap and give your body some of the nutrition it needs to function optimally.

Of course, nothing will take the place of eating a healthy diet. But taking quality natural supplements can go along way towards helping you maintain a better level of personal health and wellness. Besides, if you’re still indulging in some bad habits (skipping meals, eating process foods and not eating organic foods), you will need Young Livings bioavailable supplements even more!

I love knowing the supplements I take are made using the best ingredients and the highest standards available. See the seed to seal guarantee to understand Young Livings quality and how they take the standards beyond the standard.
