How Nutritional Supplements Can Give You a Boost

Giving your body the right nutrients can bring your health into balance and improve it drastically. Even though you can eat food high in antioxidants, fiber, calcium, and other beneficial factors, it doesn't always fully compensate for the full amount of support your body needs. Consider adding nutritional supplements on a daily basis to make sure your body gets what it requires to function at its peak performance.

At Murray’s Health & Wellness in Naples, Florida, board-certified physician, Emilia Murray, MD, ABIM, and our professional team know how to improve your quality of life with nutritional supplements. We can help you get your body nutritionally balanced to help you feel your best.

Let’s look at the reasons you should add nutritional supplements to your daily routine.

1. Food doesn’t always provide all the nutrients you need

In many cases, you might not always eat the dietary nutritional requirements on a daily basis for various reasons, including loss of appetite or dietary restrictions. 

When you add supplements to your diet that include vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, important fatty acids, and more, you increase your body’s potential to repair, regenerate, and protect your cells. The supplements bridge any gaps in your nutrition that you might be missing.

Think of it this way: When you water your plants, you help them live. But when you add fertilizer, you help them thrive.

2. As you get older, your body absorbs fewer nutrients

When you age, your body doesn’t have the same ability to break down and absorb nutrients as it could when you were younger. Also, sometimes when you’re older, you might take more medications, which can deplete your nutrients, as well. Supplements can restore your nutritional imbalances. 

3. Chemicals create free radicals

Did you know that our soil has been depleted of its natural nutrients with fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides? Fertile soil allows you to absorb the amounts of minerals intended for your body. When chemicals are added to the soil where food is grown, you ultimately ingest those chemicals, which taxes your immune system.

In addition, chemicals are found in our water supply and in our environment through pollution and more. These chemicals create free radicals that attack your immune system and your digestive system, as well. 

Adding supplements high in antioxidants can help your body fight against dangerous toxins.
