Nutrient Deficiencies Are Common: We’re Here to Help

Spread the love

family-in-woodsRecent studies show that many people are not getting the nutrients their bodies need. In spite of the fact that 65% of Americans take supplements, 98% have nutrient deficiencies. Why is this? There are many factors at play here, and one of them is that taking a multivitamin without an understanding of what you need is like throwing darts in the dark.

Here are a few more reasons why nutrient deficiencies are so prevalent:

• Prescriptions can rob you of specific nutrients that are not taken into account in mass-produced multivitamins.
• Our diets are not always nutritionally balanced.
• Over-farming and other commercial farming practices have created foods with less nutrient density.
• Stress, negative emotions and poor diet can lower body pH, which affects vital nutrients as the body works to rebalance pH.
• Each person has unique biochemical needs that may be different from other people’s needs.

Why does matching your body’s nutrient needs matter?

• Nutrient deficiencies are a leading cause of chronic health conditions and diseases.
• Nutrients are the essential building blocks for maintaining good health.
• Nutrients allow the body to build, repair and to help you feel your best.

So what should you do?

At Village Green, we’re here to provide you with resources, support and tools to assist you with achieving your health goals, including helping you identify and address nutrient depletions. Here are some ways we can help.
