Supplements are in addition to a healthy nutritional program. The old adage of “you are what you eat” is correct. Every time you go to the doctor they ask you about your family history. Your genes are more apt to express their limitations when disposed to more inflammation in your body. Ads on the TV, radio, magazines, try to inspire more healthy habits: lose weight, aerobic and/or anaerobic exercise 3-4x’s per week, increase your fruit and vegetables, eat complex carbohydrates, increase omega 3 by eating fresh fish, drink water, moderate alcohol consumption, get your rest, reduce stress, take a multi-vitamin and mineral, etc. All of these reduce inflammation and make you BETTER. In our Westernized civilization, it is especially important to supplement our nutritional habits with vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other supplements to promote a healthier you.
Supplements are the nutritional support that will aid in decreasing inflammation, obesity, diabetes type 2, high blood pressure, cancer risk, heart disease, stroke, cholesterol, etc. Supplements also help in many things that we do not think of until they are symptomatic or causing us grief. They aid in reducing cold’s and flu’s, stress, anxiety, depression, allergies; promote healthy sleep, everyday performance, and better skin; and will accelerate your body’s ability to heal whether it is from soft tissue strain/sprain, disc herniation, spinal degeneration (DJD or osteoarthritis), sinus congestion, headaches, gastrointestinal problems, etc. It is important to remind you that supplements are NOT designed to cure or treat disease; they are designed to provide support for your body.
