The Importance of a Balanced Supplement

In our hectic lives, we find less and less energy to keep us going. In most people, the addition of a good, balanced multiple vitamin and mineral supplement can improve energy levels substantially within one week. Choosing the right supplement is critical.

Super supplements contain a good blend of all common (and necessary) vitamins and minerals, plus a few of the more important phytonutrients. Their ingredients are derived mainly from herbs and other natural sources. This base of herb and vegetable powders increases absorption and assimilation of the necessary nutrients and provides additional antioxidant and nutritional benefits.

There are other factors to consider. These include adequate, uninterrupted sleep; time for rest and relaxation away from work and the daily grind; drinking enough water; maintaining a healthy weight; and adequate exercise. Each of these elements is critical to our overall health, and a lack of one or more of them can lead to disease.

Another common problem in our busy modern lives is the way we consume our food. Sitting down with the family for a relaxed, home-cooked, healthy meal is an important component of everyday health. Stress impacts digestion, so spending quality time with loved ones and consuming healthy food can help reduce stress and keep us healthy.

For optimal health, schedule more rest and relaxation; take steps to reduce stress; get better sleep; exercise more; lose some weight if needed; and drink more water. The addition of a well-balanced vitamin and mineral supplement added to our daily routines can be the final step in helping us restore energy and optimal health to our hectic lives.
