Do we really need to take vitamins?
Founder - Bruce Brightman - LifeSource Vitamins
The answer is YES! Without a doubt. Let me ask you a question. How is it that every form of cancer known worldwide is higher than ever in the United States, yet we have more prescription medications than ever, which are a whole other story? Our food is the main reason. Here are some serious reasons why. First off, our soils have been farmed so much the soil has lost the majority of the nutritional value that is needed for our vegetables to be beneficial for us. Lastly they add pesticides and other chemicals, add all of this together, and then we really have problems. So the same tomato we are eating today is not nearly as nutritious as that same tomato from 10 years ago. Now we move onto our beef and pork. They are filling our livestock full of growth hormones to help them grow bigger, faster. Faster to market, so to speak. Then you add the feed that they are feeding our livestock is not nearly as nutritious due to our soils being depleted, so they are not as healthy. They are minimizing the growth time for these animals drastically, it is not healthy for them and it surely is not healthy for humans.
With our poultry, this is really scary; they have cut in half the growth time of these animals with chemicals. This is really a huge issue for the US. Another huge concern is their living conditions being so sub standard. Not healthy for the poultry, and again, not healthy for us to consume. Lastly our fish. We can sum this up with one word; pollution. Our waters are terribly polluted. We have unbelievably high amounts of mercury, which are found in numerous fish that we eat every day. Our pollution governmental regulations in the US are getting better , but not practiced around the world. This is a worldwide problem, not just in the US. Now we see that we have fish farms, they seem to be great right, well maybe not. They have thousands of fish in small areas in numerous cases. Too many fish in a small confined area is not healthy. Also, with these farm raised fish, they are not finding Omega 3's in these fish, which is perplexing. Again, this emphasizes the importance of an Omega 3 supplement.
All the above being said, this is exactly why you need to consider certain supplements. The multi vitamin would be the most important supplement. But not just any supplements. They cannot be synthetic, which is what you will find at mass retailers. When it costs more to produce a simple gumball than it does for your vitamin for the day from these mass retailers, then there may be a problem. How do they do this; inexpensive and non-effective ingredients. They also use heat processing, which heat kills most nutrients and makes them virtually ineffective. This is where the bad publicity comes from with regard to supplements and how they go right through you. Whole food multi vitamins are the only way for them to reach your blood stream, which is essentially is how they become effective.
By now you are probably wondering what is left to eat? Well, there are still some great choices out there. There is a plethora of organic stores out there that have great beef, poultry, pork and fish. Whole Foods Marketplace is probably one of the best national organic chains, and then there numerous regional stores that are similar to Whole Foods. Every meat and fish sold at Whole Foods must meet their standards, which far exceed all governmental standards. You pay a little more, but your health is certainly worth it.
