Why most Supplements will not make you healthier

Updated on October 17, 2011

Spirulina nutrition is more than a supplement – it's a whole food

In order to live a long and healthy life our bodies require a lot of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Deficiencies of these essential components could lead to many diseases and illnesses and therefore make us have shorter lives. For these reasons and more, Spirulina is considered a super food that can lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk of heart disease, reduce your risk of having cancer and calm your stress.

With Spirulina, you have one whole food source that can help with all your illnesses. This blue-green alga has many of the essential nutrients that the body needs to fight off the things that ail them. Just think, one food source that can do it all and more for the body and mind. No more vitamin supplements, this is actually a whole food that comes in powder or capsule form.

Around thirty to fifty years ago the same foods we eat today had more nutrients than they do now. This has a lot to do with mass production and the fact that many use pesticides and other unnatural substances. Not only that but much of the so called fresh produce that you find in super markets have to be shipped from places that are not close by, like bananas for instance, they are mainly shipped from Brazil to the US.

Because of the way food is processed and shipped around the nation it is hard to find fresh food that has all the nutrients that it should have if it was grown naturally and sold locally. This is what makes herbal supplements like Spirulina such a great whole food source. It also helps out the environment by not taking my land to grow, and not taking many resources to harvest. Eating the algae as a regular dietary additive also helps save animals and other plant life by eating lower on the food chain.

For many years people lived off homegrown foods and it was not until about a hundred years ago, when the mass production of food started that the human diet began to change. With this change came the lower amount of nutrients that people got from eating the same things they did hundreds of years before. Now not only do people have to worry about not getting enough nutrients for their bodies to live long and healthy they also have to worry about getting poisoned from lack of safety measures.

Because of all the problems with food in recent years, nutritional supplements have become more and more popular, creating a multi-billion dollar business. Using super green food supplements can more than make up for the lack of nutrients in our bodies and result in having a healthy body and mind. If you are looking for a vitamin and mineral supplements, try Spirulina, it is the richest whole food supplement out there.
