Eating healthy: How to add a boost of nutrients

What happens if you
don’t get all the nutrients you need from your diet alone? With today’s busy
lifestyles, it can sometimes be a challenge to eat the recommended daily
servings of fruits, vegetables and other key foods to get all the essential
nutrients. And even if you’re eating a healthy, balanced diet, your lifestyle habits
and overall well-being – things like smoking, drinking, junk food, hydration,
sleep, exercise and stress – can affect your body’s ability to absorb
nutrients.

That’s where
supplements can help.

Supplements offer
concentrated varieties of vitamins, minerals, herbs, probiotics or essential
fatty acids to help balance your diet and improve your overall health. Of
course, adding supplements to your diet is no substitute for real foods or a
balanced, healthy diet overall – but it can provide added support when your
body needs it.

Think supplements are
just limited to vitamin pills? Think again! In addition to vitamins and
supplements, nutrient boosters can include herbs, probiotics, essential oils
and superfoods.

Not sure where to
start? First, it’s a good idea to consult with your doctor to determine if you
are in need of more nutrients than your diet provides. Our FoodE Experts,
Dietitian, Pharmacists and Health and Bodycare Specialists are familiar with
boosting products and can help guide and support you.
