being healthy and enjoying carbs

Most people searching for nutrition services in River Falls WI have trouble finding a program that works for them. After all, it's not easy to escape the sugar and carbohydrates present in many food products that populate the shelves of grocery stores. However, the notoriety that some macronutrients have is largely undeserved. The real challenge is deciphering the food labels and figuring out what is right for you.

Following Good Nutrition in River Falls WI

It is important to eat a well-balanced diet with enough protein, carbohydrates, and fats to maintain our optimal health. It is becoming more difficult to get all the nutrients we need from our diet.

The American diet has declined in quality since the 1950’s. The introduction of processed foods which include chemicals that are banned in other countries has been a major cause. With the consumption of less quality protein and fewer vegetables and fruit our need for a multivitamin supplement is needed more than ever. We are consuming less fish as well and not getting the Omega-3 fatty acid our cardiovascular system and joints need to be healthy. With less exposure to the sun, we also don’t produce enough Vitamin D3 which our immune system needs to work optimally. Individually other supplements are recommended to help with your general health and any deficiencies you might have.

It is more difficult to find a good vitamin than you might think. Vitamins or nutritional supplements are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Supplement companies can therefore say they have a certain amount of substance in their product and simply not have it at all. So, the corner market may or may not have a “good” vitamin for you to purchase.

What makes a “good” multivitamin? A “good” vitamin should of course have what the label says it has. In addition, it must be in a form your body can absorb and dissolve in the first 30 minutes of digestion so it can be absorbed. The best way of knowing the quality of a product is through testing, called a “third-party assay”. Not all companies have their products tested, in fact, very few do. The best way to find out is to ask your supplier.
