Natural supplements: a snapshot
Natural supplements are extracted from whole foods found in nature, such as plants, animals, or minerals, offering a variety of nutrients that typically work together. These products retain the natural composition of their sources, offering nutrients in forms that our bodies recognise from our evolutionary diet.
An interesting aspect of these supplements is their potential for 'nutrient synergy' - the idea that certain vitamins and minerals are more effective when absorbed together, similar to how they are found in whole foods. This principle, suggesting our bodies may process natural supplements more efficiently as they mimic the nutrients found in foods we've evolved to digest, highlights their role in a balanced approach to nutrition.
