Nutritional supplements: Can they improve your life?

Nutritional supplements: Can they improve your life?

This is an interesting question because the answer is yes and no. On the one hand, most experts agree that your goal should be to at least make an attempt to get the majority of vitamins and minerals through the food you eat. So why are there an enormous number of supplement bottles filling the health and beauty aisle at your grocery store? Are they actually as necessary or effective as they claim? Again, the answer is somewhere in the middle.

Why? The reason is the mounting research indicating that there are some specific vitamins and minerals of which we, as a population, are commonly falling short of with respect to the recommended daily allowance. And, these deficiencies are actually contributing to preventable health problems.

Green Leaf Sciences has created the Vibrant Nutraceuticals brand to address this issue and has developed a line of high quality, safe and effective supplements to address the gap between what people are generally getting from nutrition and what they actually need to maintain good health.

What are the uses of common supplements?

You may be surprised to hear that most experts do not recommend a multivitamin. Rather, they suggest you focus on the vitamins and minerals that people are most often lacking. A few specific examples are Vitamin D3, which supports bone health and is necessary for calcium absorption, and Vitamin B12, which is essential to metabolism — helping to convert food into energy. In fact, some people have noticed increased energy and even weight loss when they begin a B12 supplement. Other commonly recommended supplements include calcium for bone health and magnesium which helps reduce muscle pain and cramping.

At Vibrant Nutraceuticals, we’ve focused our considerable research resources on the areas in which the average human diet is falling short in terms of essential vitamins and minerals. Using the information from these studies, we’ve developed an exclusive, plant-based product that is head and shoulders above the rest in terms of effectiveness and safety.

Make sure the quality is top-notch

The supplement industry is wide-ranging and yet, not highly regulated. As a consumer, it’s of the utmost importance that you do your homework and make sure that what you’re buying is and does what it claims. Some things to look for when choosing nutritional supplements are whether they’re produced in a FDA registered facility (when sold in the USA), they have the GMP seal (good manufacturing practices), and whether they’ve met the standards of Health Canada (when sold in Canada).

Vibrant Nutraceuticals has gone above and beyond to meet and exceed the above requirements. Please feel free to scroll through the website and read more about our company and the specific science behind all of our top quality products.
