Be Heathy by Choice, Not by Chance

Nutrition

"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food."

Hippocrates

Good nutrition is vital to health. It gives the body the necessary components to rebuild itself. The importance of a healthy balanced diet has never changed, but the ability to achieve this goal has become more difficult.

Few are getting their recommended 9 to 11 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Those who attempt this daily feat are often unaware of the irradiation and pesticides, which altered the product before they ingested it.

Today's nutrient-depleted soils produce fruits and vegetables with substandard levels of vitamins and minerals. Processing, cooking and preserving food leads to further nutrient depletion as foods are often devoid of enzymes and certain nutrients that leave the body lacking.

"For those less likely to eat fresh produce you may be interested to note that much of what's in your grocery store is simply 'fast food.' Ever finish a meal only to be 'hungry' 30 minutes later? Our bodies are craving nutrients not food. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that 92% of Americans do not receive sufficient nutrients from their food for optimal health."

"As a population, we are over fed and under nourished. Calories are ever plentiful, yet nutrients are not."

With today's hectic lifestyle and erratic eating habits, people often make poor food choices. There is also the growing problem of poor digestion, which inhibits the absorption and assimilation of the nutrients one does manage to consume.

Many people question the need for supplements. However, fast foods, microwavable meals and extremely processed foods in general, leave us with basic nutritional deficiencies.

Even if you eat lots of fruits and vegetables you are not likely to get all of the nutrients your body needs. And unless you are purchasing quality organic, local produce, you are now ingesting preservatives.

 

To maintain your health, you need all the nutrients and vitamins in their proper amounts. It is very difficult, expensive, and impractical to achieve this through diet alone and nutritional supplements help to fill the gap.

Quality nutritional supplements can provide a source of concentrated nutrients virtually impossible to obtain from food alone. Combined with a balanced diet, your body will receive the nutrients it needs to function and thrive, leaving you feeling better than ever before.

Taking a poor supplement could be worse than taking no supplement. Companies often cut corners in their manufacturing processes by using unverifiable nutrient quantities, cheap additives and binders (such as sand, anti-freeze, shampoo and glues), with poor quality source material.

Types of Supplements:

  1. Synthetic Supplements are entirely man made. They are often referred to as "isolated" or "fractionated" pieces of the whole and they do not give the full benefit that is necessary for vital nutrition.
  2. Natural Supplements involve extracting various compounds from natural sources. While the source of the vitamins may be natural (calcium from milk and vitamin C from oranges) the extraction process subtly changes the molecular structure of the product and it is no longer in its natural state. If "some" of the product is natural, even if there are synthetic components added, the product may be labeled "natural" without labeling the synthetic ingredients.
  3. Whole Food Supplements give the benefits of the WHOLE food, which includes ALL of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes that are naturally occurring. The bulky fiber and water from the fruit, vegetable or plant are removed in a way that does not disturb the balance and synergy of the natural product.
  4. Pharmaceutical Grade refers to the strictest manufacturing standards for purity and concentration that prescription medications are required to meet - 98% accuracy as tested by an independent laboratory. Other supplements (food grade) often have less stringent testing and varying levels of concentration and potency have been found from pill to pill.
  5. Bioavailability ensures that your body absorbs an optimal amount of nutrients. Better nutrient absorption means greater health benefits.

Kenzen is a Japanese word that combines the concepts of "wholesome" and "wellness." The Kenzen Wellness concept is based on the timeless philosophy that natural, whole foods provide ideal nutrition for both health and medicine.
