In order to understand what the main differences are between whole food supplements and other supplements we have to first explore what is meant by whole foods. We also need to discuss what the difference is relative to foods that are not whole food.
I start with the assumption that we all know what supplements are, but just in case, let me very briefly explain. A dietary supplement is something you use to supplement the everyday foods you eat. The purpose for eating or taking a supplement is to add nutrients to your body, address a specific health issue, boost your overall immune system, boost your physical energy and there are many other reasons to use supplements. Supplements are for adding nutrition to what you already eat to support aspects of your health.
Let’s discuss what food is that is not a whole food. The simple short explanation is, some portion of available foods have been manipulated by humans. Isolated nutrients like isolated vitamins and minerals, and possibly synthetic chemicals have been added. Whole foods do not contain the complete makeup of nutrients and other natural compounds in the way they exist in nature. russian food store
Whole foods are created by mother earth, their composition is in no way manipulated by humans. Their composition is intact, humans have not removed anything and have not added isolated nutrients or man made synthetic compounds. If whole foods are organically grown they also don’t contain any pesticide and other chemical residue. Whole foods are foods for humans and animals to eat as nature intended.
The human body accepts, utilizes and thrives from the nutrition in whole foods. It is increasingly clear that humans are much healthier eating whole foods. Today we see all around us what the health results are from all the manipulated foods. Highly processed manufactured foods have greatly contributed to a very unhealthy culture.
If we accept the premise that whole foods are better for you than processed and manipulated foods, then whole food supplements are better for you than supplements containing processed food with isolated or synthetic nutrients.
A whole food supplement has all the components our bodies need for a balanced system. You get the combination and quality of nutrients that can effectively supplement the needs of your whole body. A whole food supplement supports you holistically and can support you for specific heath challenges.
