Things that you need to know about vitamin and mineral supplementation.
September 16, 2020
Did you know that actually most vegetables, nuts seeds and grains actually when combined together and had during the day, spread out well. Can you complete your daily required intake of vitamins and minerals? Well that’s true.
Micronutrients are small milligrams that are needed for our system and most of the population ABUSES these supplements to think they can override bad eating habits???.
It doesn’t work that way. We cannot compromise on eating nutritiously well during the day and add supplemental items to “fix” something. When you do that, you are actually putting an “excess” of mg into your body which causes more distress.
I also often get a lot of questions about “boosting immunity” and with that people ask me about vitamin C dosage, consumption of supplements and pills.
Vitamins and minerals are essential for our survival however, these are called “micro” nutrients for a reason. We don’t need them in excess for our body to optimally perform daily. If you consume a varied diet, with lots of vegetables, in case you choose to eat meats or poultry or dairy, then those too… along with wholesome grains, which have the trace minerals and vitamins that we need for our daily required intake.
Now, what is the daily required intake, you may wonder?
It’s mentioned here for you to take care of or at least get started with:
Citrus fruits, bell peppers, ginger, Brussels sprouts
Dairy, leafy greens, most crucifers
Salmon, yogurt, turkey
Almonds, cashews, legumes
Seaweed, salt, celery
Lentils, squash, bananas
Garlic, onions, eggs, mineral water
Red meat & seafood, beans, dark leafy greens
Pineapple, pecans, peanuts
Liver, crabs, cashews
Seafood, chickpeas, sprouts, beet greens
Seaweed, cod, yogurt
Mustard, water, crab
Brazil nuts, sardines, macadamia nut
This is not to confuse you, but to guide you. So that you are aware that when you consume a variety of ingredients in different formats you are getting micro-nutrients daily for your required intake. If your diet isn’t varied, colourful as well then you are definitely missing out on micro-nutrients for your body to heal, thrive and perform. More info, down here:
