How Malnourished Are You?

Why do you need to get serious about nutrition? Let's look at what has happened in the last 50 years with just two of the most popular vegetables:

Nutrients in POTATOES have decreased;
Vitamin A 100% ---Calcium 28% ---Vitamin C and Iron 57% ----Thiamine 18% ---- and Riboflavin 50%

Nutrients in BROCCOLI have decreased:
Calcium 62% --- Iron 33%---Vitamin A 55% ---Thiamin 40% ---Riboflavin 42%

This decrease in nutrients has happened in all of our fruits and vegetables. There-in lies the problem! USDA reports detail the nutrient poorness of our soil. Our produce which is lacking in nutrients to begin with is green harvested! Already nutrient-poor food is harvested BEFORE the few nutrients in the soil are able to enrich it. We may have plenty of food but the nutrient quality is sorely lacking. This is why servings on the food pyramid were increased and why it was recommended in the Journal of the American Medical Association (2002) everyone supplement with a quality multi-vitamin.

Combine the loss of nutrients in our whole foods with the nutrient poorness of processed foods and you come up with a whopping nutrient deficit!! And very, very few people eat in a truly healthy way to begin with. What did you eat yesterday?

Every cell in your body is made from the food you eat. The human body can take an amazing amount of abuse. But sooner or later a shortage of nutrition will catch up to you. The quality of your wellness is directly tied to the quality of the nutrition you give your body.

That is why you need to get serious about your nutrition. As recommended by the Journal of the American Medical Association combine a well-balanced diet with a quality multi-nutrition supplement.

And yes, I have a multi-nutrition supplement suggestion for you!
