Why Whole Foods Nutritional Supplements?

How Wheat is Processed

The processing cycle of wheat

  1. Wheat kernel comprised of starch and nutrient-rich bran and germ
  2. Bran and germ are removed, resulting in primarily empty starch (flour).
  3. Processed flour is bleached to improve the appearance and texture of consumer goods.
  4. Bleached flour is enriched by adding in a few isolated B vitamins and iron in an attempt to replace what has been removed.
  5. Nutrient-deficient consumer goods that have the ability to sit on a store shelf for an extended period of time are the final result.

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 and undernourished.

There is good news

Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal 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 nutrients we are not getting from our diet, all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.

Only whole food supplements complete the nutritional gap

Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods for use in supplements. When processed correctly, they supply a multitude of the plant’s components. Foods provide nutrients that work synergistically. They work together to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health.

Selecting a Quality Supplement

There are many different kinds of supplements on the market, and it can be very confusing to determine the their true value.  Understanding the label will help you know if you are taking a quality whole foods supplement.

To be effective, don’t I need to get at least 100% of the daily value?

We often think that more is better when choosing supplements, quality is far more important than quantity. A small amount of a vitamin in whole food form is far more effective in the human body than a large dose of an isolated vitamin, that is just a fraction of the whole.
