The standard American Diet consists of may un-healthy foods.

Standard American Diet (SAD) ......Literally

 

Americans are literally eating themselves to death.  We are overfed and undernourished.  As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients.  We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables.  Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat, breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals and one-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day.  As a result, we have seen increases in preventable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and cancer. Since the standard American diet (SAD) truly is sad; we need to change the question from, “Do I need to supplement my diet?” to “How much supplementation do I need?”
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet, all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.
