Tip of the Day

Even while maintaining a healthy diet, we still may need the additional support provided by a multi-vitamin. Many of the conventional foods we eat are grown in soil with depleted nutrients. Similarly, our body’s gut may be suffering an impaired ability to break down and absorb what nutrients our food does provide. We may also have developed various Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNP) on our genes that prevent our metabolic pathways from working optimally. A multi-vitamin can provide extra daily support to make sure your cells are getting the vitamins and minerals they need to work their best. Still, the only way to know what vitamins and minerals your body may be deficient in is through blood work. Work with Sally to make sure your nutrients are at optimal levels.
