Why we need a supplement and food isn’t always enough…

In a perfect world we would get all our nutrients from our food. But sadly our soil is unhappy and not rich in many nutrients any longer due to mass production of crops meaning the soil is never able to rest and replete its nutrients for the food to uptake. Add to this the use of herbicides and pesticides, poor food storage before we get it and overcooking then we as a nation in our option have become very deficient in many key vitamins.
