Why Supplement your diet

Scary thought… Because of soil depletion, crops grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us consume  today.

Emphasis these days are focused on production, need and demand, rather than the nutritional value of food. As a result, the producers neglect replenishing the nutrients in the soil our food is grown in.

According to various studies this has become a worrying factor and increases the demand for supplementing your diet with high quality Nutritional supplements, and also emphasizes more care in the methods of cooking (using methods that reduces the amount of nutrients lost during cooking, such as low liquid cookery and closed lid cooking).

“What can be done? The key to healthier produce is healthier soil. Alternating fields between growing seasons to give land time to restore would be one important step. Also, foregoing pesticides and fertilizers in favour of organic growing methods is good for the soil, the produce and its consumers. Those who want to get the most nutritious fruits and vegetables should buy regularly from local organic farmers.”

Supplementing your diet with high quality certified organic nutritional supplements, is an easy and convenient method to supplement your daily life, especially because of the busy lifestyles we have. Please consult me (Estee van Lingen) for more information.
