International Orders Are Resumed But Expect Delays.
Food vs. Supplements
In an ideal world, we’d get all the nutrients we needed from our diet.
But that’s pretty impossible these days, due to various reasons (including farming methods).
Therefore, the right supplements can often help a huge amount…
This is especially the case for people who are either suffering with their health, want to prevent health problems, or who want to perform at their absolute best each and every day.
To highlight some of the differences between diet and supplements, here’s a few examples…
Many people often comment on our Facebook posts to say that rather than using Advanced Turmeric they will just have the occasionally curry or add turmeric to their soups.
However, a typical curry will just contain half a teaspoon of turmeric, which on its own just isn’t much at all.
Our turmeric capsules though are mixed with “Bioperine” - a natural black pepper extract which studies have shown improves the absorption and effectiveness by 20 times as much (on its own turmeric isn’t well absorbed into the body).
Therefore, one dose of our Advanced Turmeric is likely around 20 times more effective than having a curry.
There's also the fact that most people don’t have a curry a couple of times a day (as its best to spread the dose) and taking in capsule form is a much more convenient way to get the required amount of turmeric.
Omega 3 Fats
Omega 3 fats are beneficial fats which have been shown, amongst other things, to impact brain, eye and heart health.
Omega 3 fats are found in good amounts in mackerel, wild salmon and sardines. If you were eating those each day you likely don’t need to supplement with fish oil as well.
However, the fact is most people aren’t having those fish each day…
Even someone who did eat fish daily wouldn’t necessarily get enough omega 3 in their diet because things like cod, haddock, sea bass, scallops, crab, lobster, etc contain very low amounts of omega 3.
Just 2 capsules per day of our Advanced Fish Oil Capsules provides 2000mg of Omega 3.
Amongst many other things vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, muscle function, teeth, and the normal function of the immune system.
But many people are deficient.
The main source of vitamin D is from the sun – it’s hard to get from the diet alone, but if you were going to try to do that, you’d need to eat around 30 eggs, or 400g of sardines.
Just 1 tablet per day of our Advanced D3, or 1 capsule of the Advanced Multi, provide you with 1000iu per day of vitamin D3.
Similar to vitamin D, unfortunately the majority of the population are deficient in Magnesium.
Farming method changes in particular have meant its increasingly hard to extract magnesium from the diet alone.
In particular magnesium is known to help with reduction of tiredness and fatigue, can support normal muscle function, contribute towards bone and teeth health, supports normal function of the nervous system and much more.
Dietary sources of magnesium include dark chocolate and avocado.
However, you’d need to eat roughly 10 lots of 30g bar of chocolate to equate to one capsule of Advanced Magnesium, or around 6 avocados per day.
Now I’m a fan of avocado and chocolate but even I probably wouldn’t want to be eating that much!
I could go on and give similar examples for most of our products but hopefully it has helped to show just why supplements can be so beneficial.
