People are stressed out more now than ever before.
Some 80,000 years ago, when people lived as hunter-gatherers, they only experienced stress in a life or death situation. Today, people encounter countless amounts of stress just in one day; whether its a work deadline, an overdue bill, or a fight with a spouse.
Our stressors today are rapidly recurring and some are even long term. Our bodies' immune system reacts to stress by going into fight or flight mode, thus producing hormones that help with stress, like adrenaline.
Constantly being exposed to stress cause our immune system to shut down so often they start to deteriorate. Supplements help restore and build our immune system that is being destroyed by stress.
Processed foods are taking over grocery stores.
Because food vendors want their food to stay fresher longer in grocery stores, they add preservatives to their food to lengthen their shelf life. In processing these raw ingredients into the food, the appearance and taste of the food is being altered.
To counteract the work of the preservatives, additives are added to the food, as well, to enhance the food's color and taste. All this extra processing to the food significantly decreases its nutritional value, therefore depriving our bodies of nearly all the vitamins and nutrients it needs.
Eating habits alone, also drastically contribute to malnutrition.
People are always looking for the faster way to get meals, and therefore will opt for the processed microwaveable dinner instead of a healthy salad with fresh greens. Even how people prepare their dinners, whether baking or frying, is detrimental to the overall nutritional value of the foods they consume.
In addition, people predominantly will consume meat over fish, and fish contains important fatty acids that our bodies require.
Trying to stay healthy with a balanced nutritional diet these days can feel like taking on a full time job. You may have added fish to your diet, but did you think about mercury and saturated fats in fish? Instead of trying to keep up with all the latest research on the foods you're consuming, supplements are an all natural, easy, and void of added chemical way of improving your diet.
