You're right. I was part of a medicinal supplements summit this week and it's so hard, but not impossible, to find high quality supplements. Leaky gut, which many unknowingly suffer from, can prevent a great diet (and even supplements) from working.
I agree with that. I have lupus, pernicious anemia and a few others so I have to use supplements. However, unless we grow our own foods in soil that's not depleted, most of us would have to use supplements, as I don't feel our diet would suffice.
I think even with a healthy, balanced diet it is challenging to get all nutrients from food....issues-food additives/processing, soil depletion, pesticides, lack of trace minerals, long distances our food tends to travel before we get it. Thoughts?
In my mind, a healthy diet doesn't gen. include processed foods. Eating a wide variety of produce from various sources (supermarket, locally grown, organic, frozen even, etc.) helps keep promote balance and overcome what some sources might lack.
I suggested that processed food was an issue/problem. Check my comment again. I suggested that these issues make it difficult for anyone to have a healthy, balanced diet.
While I do think that it is 'possible' to get all nutrition from food sources, I think the way food is currently sold makes it difficult/unlikely. More than a few people will have to rely on high-quality supplements, especially if they are deficient.
....and all levels were good after being checked? B12, Vitamin D, iron, magnesium, CBC, everything? I do juicing also, and I found that I still was not getting everything. I'm glad it's working for you. Would you like to share some juice blends?
I can't really say anything about the vitamin levels, because we didn't check them. We were more using the juicing as a way to lose weight in a healthy way. We juiced two times a day at dinner and breakfast and then ate a normal lunch with eggs+fish.
