“Supplements or Food? – What Has a Stronger Impact for Good Health or Specific Health Problems?”
Although this is quite a broad question there’s a generalize concept out there that says “you can get all your nutrients from food”. When I heard this from a certain ‘ healthcare professional’ the first thought that came to mind was something about a duck.
It was such an ignorant statement. Firstly of all, how many people in the USA come anywhere close to eating the amounts of nutrients they need per day for optimal health? Not very many. And the results can be seen in negative health statistics across the board. On top of that the average person eats too many negative health foods.
How many people know exactly what foods to eat for what issue? How many people have knowledge of organic versus corrupted food? How many people know the proper foods to eat for the needed nutrients desired? How many people know what foods to not eat that may negate a positive food? On top of that our average organic food even has far less nutrient density vs. years ago due to modern farming practices.
What about the time of digestion? What about pesticides, bugs, bacteria, heavy metals, other chemicals, plastics from packaging? what about the expense and effort it takes in order to eat the full spectrum of nutrients your body needs even on a daily basis? What about time eaten up in going out grocery shopping? Making lists? Plus it’s not cheap and it takes effort which also costs more money and more time so therefore in order to eat for excellent health, or come close if you can eat that quantity of food, you’re going to have to be making a robust salary and most people are not.
Supplements are much cheaper in proportion to the nutrients they deliver and they are refined, tested and purified making them more reliable and less risky. They are so much more convenient.
Now I’m not talking about replacing food with supplements of course. Although that depends what you call a supplement in that if you call a protein powder, fruits and veggies powder, food bars, protein bars a supplement, well you can get pretty far on that with today’s variety. Plus you need a certain amount of calories, and various other food co-factors. But in this discussion and talking more about we use of food to meet your good health needs without the use of supplements versus food in addition to supplements where as food in addition to supplement is far superior and can address specific needs much more efficiently and effectively speaking from personal experience.
After over 30 years of testing supplements for the addressing of various issues relating to a general health boost, to fat burning, to better looks, to stronger muscles, to greater libido, to rapid repair of joints after injury, to eradication of skin issues, to the immediate boost of the immune system for the forwarding of colds, diffusing of blood sugar after getting a bit too much of a sugar high after my sweet tooth ran wild and so on and so on… food can’t touch supplements. When I feel an immune dip coming on making me vulnerable to illness, food can’t touch supplements. But I have knowledge, experience and understanding of what to take.

Supplements are foods, well, for the most part. But they are concentrated foods that are parts of foods, plants, roots, leaves etc. These plant parts can be particularly effective when tuned into issues related to the benefits of the particular supplement. And if I’m looking to fix a problem or feel better really quickly supplements are much more effective overall and they are a lot more convenient vs food.
With food there are many other variables involved. First of all you have the digestive process which takes a lot of energy to break down what you ate depending on what you ate. And if you ate something that had negative factors hidden in the food well, that’s a problem. Also if you have other factors in the foods you eat that do not coordinate with the issue you’re trying to address through food you may not have any benefit or make what you’re trying to achieve get worse. For example many people eat what they think are healthy foods, but end up eating foods that strongly suppress the immune system in the mean time.
This topic is much more complex than can be covered in this article because there can be all sorts of different types of foods and combinations or supplements in the forms of drink powders which some may call of food but really are supplements such as greens powders and protein powders, collagen powders and so on. So we’ll look to cover this topic in more detail over time through our newsletter.
