5 reasons to take supplements!
“Optimum Nutrition is the medicine of tomorrow,” Dr Linus Pauling (twice Nobel prize winner)
By eating a healthy balanced diet, we hope we’ll get all the vitamins and nutrients we need… But it’s not always the case. At The Bothy we believe our bodies will always benefit from having additional vitamins and nutrients.
We’ve outlined below 5 reasons why we think taking supplements will enhance our health & help us to achieve healthy skin!
Fruit and vegetables aren’t grown the way they used to be! Previously we would grow a carrot in fertile soil, at the time of year the carrot grows best. We would then pick the carrot from the soil and serve... Now, our fruit and vegetables are grown and harvested on huge farms with soil that has been fertilised and chemicals added. They’re often genetically bred to increase the yield and style (not to increase the nutrient value!). They may then be flown across the world before they reach our plate. All these factors mean that our fruit and vegetables just aren’t as nutrient rich as our bodies would like.
We often eat food that has been processed or cooked, which leads to nutrient depletion.
Lifestyle habits, insufficient chewing of food, eating on the run, and stress contribute to poor digestion, making it difficult for our bodies to extract all the nutrients it needs from food. For example, alcohol burns up B-Vitamins and lack of sunlight causes deficiency in Vitamin D.
Taking medication can lead to the depletion of essential vitamins and minerals in our bodies, including drugs such as, antacids, aspirin, beta-blockers, HRT.
Increasing levels of environmental pollution in our air, water and food may cause our bodies to use more nutrients than normal to detoxify and eliminate harmful substances.
