Whole foods are our best source of nutrition and provide the most complete sources of vitamins and minerals. Shaklee’s children’s vitamins include Incredivites which are tasty chewable multivitamin supplements designed to be loved by kids. Because these vitamins come from food they outperform other vitamin forms and are completely safe. When trying to decide which type of vitamin to use it is important to understand the difference between vitamins and supplements made with whole food ingredients and regular vitamins made from chemicals produced in a laboratory.\n\nMany people find that even though they may have had a reaction in the past to certain vegetables, they have no problem taking Optimal 2. Optimal 2 contains the Opti-Blend Delivery System that is made of a blend of enzymes and minerals to enhance the complete digestion of nutrients within the product.\n\nThe nutritional value of whole food is due to the interweaving of the entire spectrum of nutrients with vitamins and minerals acting in a synergistic fashion with hundreds of other plant alkaloids, phytochemicals and enzymes. Look for a supplement that can give you vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, flavonoids, carotenoids, neuronutrients, trace elements, anti-glycation agents, herbal extracts and specialty nutrients, such as resveratrol and SAMe.\n\nYet the worst part is, man has the ability to make these items then, put them in our food and even our vitamins. If you consider an example: it is known that tomatoes are good for health as they are rich in Vitamins C and E. But to get your full quota of these vitamins you would have to eat nearly a dozen tomatoes everyday, which is not possible.\n\nIn terms of supplementing beyond this list, when it comes to picking the right whole food supplements for your purposes, you’ll probably want to look for much the same things you might have looked for in artificial supplements in the past – compounds to promote joint health, brain health, immunity and so on, by the use of anti-oxidants like resveratrol, beta-carotene along with other amino acids and vitamins.
