We can’t get enough nutrition from the foods we eat, as our foods are all sourced from depleted soils, they are refined and over processed, filled with colourings, additives and preservatives which all equate to nutritionally poor food. Despite Australia being technologically advanced with a food industry that has high standards.
Our food industry is based on consumption not nutrition. Australia sources food from global enterprises that don’t replenish their soils. Decades of farming have left soils depleted of essential nutrients and farmers can’t afford expensive, quality fertilisers and generally use only the basic Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium fertilisers to produce crops that look good but are depleted of most necessary minerals. To survive and compete in the food industry, food producers have to be more concerned with abundance and appearance.
In addition, these foods are placed in cold storage for a period of time and they further lose nutritional value. For example, the processing and freezing of meat removes 50%-70% of Vitamin B6, cold storage of tangerines removes up to 50% of the Vitamin C and asparagus in cold storage for 1 week can lose 90% of its Vitamin C.
What all this means, is that we can’t eat the quantity of food to get the optimal nutrition we need. So scientifically researched and proven vitamin supplements are a convenient and affordable way to obtain optimal nutrition.
One of the biggest motivations to adopt a more nutritious diet is the desire to improve our general well-being and skin health. Many people of all ages struggle with skin conditions such as break outs, acne, dry skin, wrinkles, pigmentation and photo-aging to name a few.
These skin conditions can have major psychological effects on those who have yet to find a solution to their problematic skin condition. While conventional medical professionals often discount the connection between skin health and nutrition, there is strong evidence to support that optimal nutrition improves not only our general well-being but the health and vibrancy of our skin.
The consumption of certain vitamins, minerals, oils and other beneficial compounds in the diet, is one of the most effective ways to treat skin conditions and improve skin health.
