Supplements: Ask the Expert //
“Almost all of us need supplements because contemporary food supplies lack adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals, thanks to soil depletion,” says nutrition specialist Robert Thompson, MD. “Most store-bought vitamins include just one component of the many complex molecular elements contained in the naturally occurring vitamin source. You need all of the nutrient components to get the full benefits.”
Dr. Thompson suggests raw seeds, stabilized rice bran powder, and vine-ripened fresh fruit and berries for the best natural sources of readily available vitamins. For more about purchasing supplements, visit our editor’s blog, “The Natural Suite,” on our sister site: naturalsolutionsmag.com.
