- Where do the nutrients come from?
Look at the ingredients listed on the food label. Do you recognize any of them?
Just like any other food label, the nutrients are listed in a particular order
and some manufactures put the source next to the nutrient. In a quality,
wholesome product, you will recognize and be able to pronounce most of
the ingredients on the label.
- What is the importance of whole food ingredients?
Only whole food ingredients can provide you with all the nutrients contained
within the food. For example in a manmade vitamin you might find ingredients
such as dl-alpha tocopherol acetate. This is not a food ingredient. It is a
manmade component of the vitamin E complex. If you were to take a
supplement with just dl-alpha tocopherol, you would be missing at least
five other important nutrients as well as hundreds of other nutrients that
occur within the whole vitamin E complex. These nutrients are only available
by comsuming natural, whole food forms of vitamin E, such as wheat germ oil,
green leafy vegetables, nuts, and sunflower seeds.
Consult with your Health care Professional
You can trust your health care professional to provide quality care. It is
important to speak with with about the supplements you are taking. They can
provide recommendations and advice to you regarding quality brands.
They can also help you determine which supplements you need based upon
your individual requirements. With your help, you will know the supplements
you are taking are working.
