The most important thing to remember about supplements is that even the highest-quality, most doctor-approved supplements are no replacement for a healthy and balanced diet. The majority of your body’s nutrient intake comes from the foods you consume, and that’s the way it should be. Speak to your physician
or a registered dietitian about coming up with a nutritional plan that works according to your body’s unique needs. Generally speaking, cut down on the processed foods (especially those high in added sugars, oils, and trans fats); drink at least eight glasses of water every day; and get most of your calories from whole foods, including humanely sourced meats, plants, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates (like organic whole grains). By keeping a consistently healthy diet that maximizes your intake of unprocessed foods, you’ll be setting your body up to take in as many nutrients as possible, as naturally as possible.
