Many people think popping a multi-vitamin supplement to get their nutrients is just as good as what comes from natural foods. They don't realize that it is far better to get vitamins and minerals from natural foods and juices. Our bodies utilize the vitamins and minerals from natural foods more efficiently. And most people find it much easier to select a variety of whole foods they enjoy eating instead of trying to make heads or tails of the entire selection of vitamin and mineral supplements available. And any of us who've swallowed a multi-vitamin or a mineral supplement can say without a doubt that the taste leaves a lot to be desired.


Supplements are also difficult for our bodies to break down and use, making it difficult to get the full punch from the vitamins and minerals they contain. Conversely, consuming plenty of nutrient-dense food to get the equivalent means the nutrients will be easier for the body to process and utilize and less likely to be wasted. We are also processing nutrients throughout the day when we obtain them from food, instead of just getting them from the 'one a day' approach.


Many of the available supplements use fillers and binders to hold them together, plus coatings on the tablets themselves. These are products the body does not need and will not use. Some people find they are allergic to the dyes and fillers used in vitamin pills. However, the body uses the fiber that binds fruits and vegetables. Often the "skin" of a vegetable, like a potato, is the most nutritious part. Sometimes, the vitamin and mineral supplements can upset our stomachs, making taking them even more difficult the next day. In many cases, combining supplements can counteract their effectiveness and produce stomach upset when dealing with some supplements' taste and smell. On the other hand, a variety of fruits and vegetables enhance the flavor of a nutritious meal, and their fiber aids digestion.


If you're looking to lose weight, eating fresh food is vital to a weight loss plan. Also, eating fresh fruits and vegetables help hair, skin, and teeth stay attractive and healthy. And when you think about it, fruits and vegetables are the original 'to go' food. It's simple to grab for an orange, apple, banana, grapes, or quickly toss a few vegetables together for a salad to take to work.
So when you're looking for well-balanced, healthy, reliable nutrition, don't reach for the bottle. Reach for the food!
