Everyone you talk to today seems to have some sort of advice about what you need to do to improve or maintain your health. This is particularly true of a diet rich in fresh, uncooked fruits and vegetables. Of course, there is no substitute for eating 17 different fruits, vegetables and grains every single day, but who actually does that?

Adding supplements like whole food vitamins allows us access to regain some of those essential compounds that are missing from the processed foods we eat on a daily basis.\n\nThis is due to the claim that organic foods are more nutritious and healthy. This creates a high potency whole food vitamin. As Americans cannot rely on the food supply to provide adequate nutrition and also cannot count on the source, quality and purity of most commercially available nutritional supplements, the only answer appears to lie in whole food supplementation.\n\nEven when fresh vegetables and fruits are consumed as a large portion of the diet, our nation’s food supply is contaminated by the use of pesticides, herbicides and hormones and much of the nutrient value is lost by transportation of the food crop from thousands of miles away.\n\nSome big news about vitamins not working – and even causing harm – has been all over the airways recently, so I reached out to T.

The theory behind the so-called Paleolithic Diet (Paleo Diet, for short) suggests that whole food vitamins obtained from minimally refined and processed whole foods, like vegetables, fruit, nuts and lean meats, should be optimally suited […]
