Diet Alone Cannot Provide All the Vitamins and Minerals

Throughout human history, humans have not taken vitamin or mineral supplements because they do not exist. They get all their nutrients from food alone and they do it well, living to old age without the degenerative diseases that are so common today. But their diet is very different from the SAD (Standard American) diet we eat today.

People eat fruits and vegetables that are produced locally and harvested at the time of cooking. The soil is rich in nutrients as it is enriched with fertilizers, not chemicals. Farmers do not use synthetic pesticides or any other artificial ingredients. As a result, fruits and vegetables contain a significant amount of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. They are healthy and nutritious.

Animals (cows, sheep, chickens, etc.) were raised without cages, eating their natural food. This makes them healthy and fit to eat. People commonly eat whole animals, including organ meats, because they are high in vitamins, minerals, and trace elements.

Most of what we eat today is not locally grown but comes from other states or countries. Fruits and vegetables are usually harvested long before cooking, to ensure that they are not damaged during transport. They dose with chemicals to make it look good. They don't contain the amount of nutrients you expect.

Another problem is the lack of land. Fruits and vegetables will only contain ingredients they get from the soil. Modern agricultural practices often leave the land in very poor nutrition, which means that the end product will not supply all the nutrients you need.

The American Standard Diet contains many "unhealthy" foods. They are highly processed, so many nutrients are lost. Some have no nutrients at all because they are synthetically made in laboratories, such as rubber bears, egg whites, soft drinks, and margarine.

One example of processed foods is white bread. Natural (whole) wheat contains many good nutrients, such as protein, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. But most of these nutrients are found in bracts (hard exterior) and germs (parts of new plants that will grow).

Both bran and germ are removed to make white flour, leaving only the white part of the grain. In the process, about 30 nutrients are released, so the end product is very poor. The flour is then broken down to make it look white, which may destroy some of the extra nutrients.

This product is very poor in nutrition around the U.S. World War II. involved and forced manufacturers to add some synthetic vitamins to it. Since 1941 white flour has been "enriched" with vitamins B1, B2, B3 and iron. In 1998 synthetic folic acid was added as well.

For most people, processed foods that have lots of calories but little nutrients are a major part of their diet.

What is the answer? Eat real food and avoid snacks. Do not eat processed foods. It's good to eat oatmeal, but it's not a grain made from oats and looks like a small donut, as it doesn't have all the nutrients from oats. Eat steaks or hamburgers, but not cold or hot dogs.

But even if you try your best to eat only good food, you will still not get all the vitamins and minerals you need because we have many higher needs than those in the past.

Our lives are fast, with lots of stress and stress. There has been an increase in pollution, with almost 80 thousand chemicals produced in the country alone. There is electromagnetic pressure, with radiation from cell towers, Wi Fi, and so on. Excessive noise is also depressed. We take large quantities of medicines, which are synthetic chemicals that create toxicity.

Your body needs extra nutrients to withstand all these stresses and even if you are really eating a "balanced" diet it will not be enough. The demands of modern life go far beyond anything that can be prepared.
