To us eating clean is eating foods in their most natural state as possible. This includes eating whole grains, lean meats, and fresh fruits and vegetables – all as organic and locally grown as possible. Of course we can’t all eat this way all the time, but it’s making the conscious effort to think about the foods you eat and choosing the healthy options as much as possible.
There are so many potential obstacles to long-term health: poor food choices, excess weight and the aging process just to name a few! It’s so important to make sure that your body has the right nutrients in the right amounts to support optimum health. A balanced diet, regular exercise and proper nutritional supplementation are the first steps to creating your perfect health – whatever that may be.
We all know that eating the right foods in a balanced diet leads to good health. In an ideal world a well-balanced and clean diet would require no supplements. We would be able to obtain all of the nutrients we need through the foods that we eat. Unfortunately for a number of reasons, we just aren’t getting all the nutrients we need on a daily basis from out food.
“Make healthy food choices and be active every day” is a key message of the USDA’s MyPlate system just released. Balancing food and regular physical activity sounds simple, but it can be a challenge, too. What is the best thing to do? Make small changes every day. These changes soon become habits.
- to fill in the gaps of our poor nutritional quality of our diets
- to balance the outside effects of stress and smoking
- to reduce the symptoms and health risks of conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoporosis, heart disease, anemia, and migraine headaches and
- to decrease the intensity and frequency of colds and flu
- studies show that less than 10% of us eat right and out of 21,000 people surveyed not one got 100% of the RDAs for ten essential nutrients
- the soils used to grow fruits and vegetables are so depleted of minerals that it is now impossible to obtain adequate nutrition through diet alone
- According to the USDA, “nearly 4 out of 5 people in the US have some sort of disease: not serious enough to warrant medical attention, but neither can they boast of good health.”
- 24% of 31-50 year olds do not meet basic Vitamin C requirements
- 40% of adults over 55 are B-Vitamin Deficient
- 93% of 31-50 year old women do not get enough Vitamin E
A 2002 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association stated that a lack of certain vitamins “is a risk factor for chronic diseases and common in the general population.” The report continues, “Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. It appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.”
So why don’t we all know this? Well, about half of us already take some form of dietary supplement. Then why aren’t all the people who take vitamins clearly healthier than those who don’t? Because not all nutritional supplements are alike. Most people are unaware that two supplements with the same RDA numbers on the bottle can have vastly different potency.
