Time to Eat Healthy?

Most of us rush through our days trying to accomplish more than is humanly possible. How many of us truly take the time to consider eating real, wholesome foods, that nourish and fuel the one body we have been entrusted with? Whole Food Nutritional Vitamins will ensure our body gets the fuel it needs.

Maybe you have tried to eat healthy but find it confusing or complicated. There are some important facts you need to know in order to eat healthy. Do you know that there are six food groups? ... Do you know what they are or how much of each food group you need for your gender, age, body type and weight? ... Eating healthy is a bit complicated and even if you know how to eat, time pressures often take priority as we rush to the nearest fast food restaurant to fill our empty stomachs.

It only makes sense to take Nutritional Whole Food Vitamins when eating healthy isn't possible.

After you have done all you can to see that you are eating a balanced diet .. be aware that it is sometimes impossible to get all the nutrition, fruits and veggies that you need. After working as a dietician I know that the majority of people don't even come close to getting all the food groups, in a day, necessary to maintain health.

I heartily recommend whole food, nutritional vitamins to cover all the basics for feeding and caring for your body.

For years we bought Shaklee vitamins and minerals - which meet the criteria above. I believe Shaklee still has nutritionals that are superior to most other companies.

Today I take a Whole Food Supplement from a company I trust and whose quality includes integrity. This company has a physician on staff for you to ask questions and can contact. If you want more information on this company, leave me a message or inbox me.

Food Pyramid

Food Pyramid

Some of you will be interested to know what an individualized healthy diet looks like. I have posted a picture of a food pyramid to give you an idea of the recommendations for the food groups you should be eating each and every day.

Drug Store Vitamins

Another problem people have is with absorption of vitamins and minerals. You can take a whole truckload of vitamins but if you are not absorbing them - all you have left is expensive pee.

I know many people purchase their vitamins and minerals at the local drug store. What my friends don't know is that these supplements are NOT real food. They are chemical renditions of food. Most of us are unable to break these chemicals down and our bodies recognizes the substance as foreign.

I had an experience of being prescribed iron for anemia - it did not work. I then asked my physician if I could try a whole food iron supplement... His answer: "you can try it, but it won't work." .... Well guess what ... I tried it and the next time I visited the Doc. my Iron had raised up and was within normal limits. My body absorbed the real thing.


Today, I take whole food nutritional vitamins and minerals called REFUEL (6 in 1 nutritional supplement) from Vollara. Check out the label and you'll find ingredients like: organically grown spinach, carrots, oranges etc.


Refuel is Six Nutritionals in One Product

VITAMINS: Complete, whole food multi-vitamins replenish essential nutrients for a healthy body. Vitamins enable you to experience Energy and overall Health
MINERALS: Patented chelated minerals with maximum absorption to promote energy, stamina, and a healthier you. Minerals give you Stronger bones, Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails, and help maintain Firm Muscle Tone.
DIGESTIVE ENZYMES: Vital enzymes necessary for proper digestion and nutrient utilization of the foods you eat.
ANTIOXIDANTS: Potent antioxidants for complete protection against the damaging effects of free radicals. Help protect you from the serious health risks of free radical damage, thereby reducing the risk of premature aging, degenerative disease and auto-immune disease
FLORA: Billions of stabilized flora to help suppress harmful bacteria and promote optimal health. Replaces beneficial intestinal bacteria to strengthen your body’s immune system and support your overall helalth
FAT-DIGESTING ENZYMES: Specific nutrients for metabolizing fat and supporting healthy blood sugar levels.* Increases ability to make lean muscle and burn fat while exercising. PATENTED CHROMIUM SOURCE - supports healthy insulin function, minimizes mood swings, supports normal blood sugar level and reduces food cravings.

REFUEL has a Delivery System CAEDS (Chelate Activated Enzyme Delivery System) that guarantees each all-natural ingredient is actually absorbed and utilized by the human body for maximum nutritional benefit.

If you had to pay for ALL of these whole food nutritional vitamins and mineral nutrients seperately you'd be paying way over $100.00

      Good for you CloudExplorer! You juice and eat organic - I do too. It is quite time consuming and not everyone is adept at knowing food combinations etc. to assure they get the proper nutrition.

      Thank you so much for sharing this information across the web. I appreciate it so much. There are so many people that need to understand how important nutrition is to our quality of life.

      Look forward to knowing you better!

      Brett, nice to see you! Yes real food packed into capsules because most of us are too busy to make sure we are getting all of our fruits and veggies and eating balanced meals.

      Years ago I learned that over the counter chemical vitamins are not easily digested, and in my case, not digested or used at all. When I switched to whole food supplements .. my body accepted the iron I so needed. Blood tests proved it!

      Probiotics are key for the digestive system. They provide the good bacteria in the gut .. Our health is dependent upon the health of our gut! Questions to ask .. Is my gut working like it should? Does it break down the food and is it healthy enough to absorb nutrition? Probiotics help to create the balance it needs to do it's job.

      I am a bit of a health nut .. but I have seen the huge benefits of healthy eating and use of alternatives to medicenes.

      Thanks for stopping by for a read today.

      Good hub, I prefer to eat raw vegetables, herbs, and grains myself to get all the vitamins I need, I juice them with my wife, and we buy organic only as well.

      Your hub pointed out some very important health pointers, and tips and so I have no choice but to vote it up, and share it across the web.

      Thanks for writing such a useful hub for us all, and health is a major issue today for most Americans, mainly because they're addicted to eating the wrong foods, I must agree.

      Interesting, vitamins from real food, but without the real food lol. A good idea I would imagine from a digestion point of view.

      Thanks for SHARING.

      Hello Diva .. I see we are kindred spirits in the realm of Holistic Health. I understand the importance of eating alot of Raw foods. I haven't, however, felt it necessary to eat raw meat as I know there are many proponents of it out there. I buy grass fed and USDA organic meat and I do cook it. :0)

      Have a Blessed Day and thanks for dropping by. I'll go to take a peek at your hubs now.

      I love love love the RAW ONE FOR WOMAN. It's the only supplement I can feel a difference with. And it's raw (I'm a big fan of the raw lifestyle and eat a high raw diet).
