Hormones, vitamins, and minerals are the active stimulus for proper human function. With this known, we can then prepare for days, weeks, months, even years ahead. Osteoporosis prevention, weight loss, pregnancy, a huge hockey season, or even the common ambition of continued health as we age can be achieved if we know our goals.
What is the difference between a good quality supplement and an isle 7 multivitamin? A lot. If the purpose of a supplement is to provide additional health to our body, we better make sure it does just that. As with a brand of cereal that may advertise “lowers cholesterol”, or “guaranteed whole grains”, one must be vigilant enough to understand what quality that statement holds. Educate yourself in being able to read its ingredients, its manufacturing protocols and the accurately concentrated amounts of what your specific body requires.
Natural versus Synthesized is an important factor in your supplement decision. Our body has the ability to break down and utilize the nutrition we decide to put in it. It has peak performance when that nutrition is easiest broken down when it is natural. Synthesized products can be just as effective, but many times may have other unwanted side effects on the body and cannot be broken down completely as readily.
