Ben Hanson, representative for Swanson Health Products, (http://www.SwansonVitamins.com), explains:
Everyone says you can’t replace a healthy diet with vitamins. That’s certainly true. But you can definitely supplement a daily diet that may have a few holes in it with high-quality dietary supplements. This, after all, is the true intent of vitamins and supplements. Even health and fitness conscious people can benefit from the right supplements, as they can provide additional nutritional support to fuel their bodies and help them maintain peak physical performance. Swanson GreenFoods Formulas deliver healthy fruit and vegetable extracts that are loaded with natural vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that your body can readily use.
Our 100% Certified Organic Spirulina supplement offers the ocean’s most “green” and healthiest organic spirulina available anywhere. It’s a completely vegetarian source of natural, potent and easily-digestible protein and delivers powerful, immune-boosting antioxidant protection for your whole body.
This is a 100% organic, real-food supplement… not a synthetic capsule filled with nutrients made in a lab that your body won’t recognize. Simply put, spirulina is a nutrition powerhouse—it’s a natural source of complete protein (muscle health), phytonutrients (immune health), essential amino acids (protein building blocks), essential fatty acids (heart health), B vitamins (natural energy), beta-carotene (vision health), trace minerals and macro minerals (overall health).
Before starting any new vitamin or supplement regimen, it’s important to consult with your doctor or primary healthcare provider to make sure what you plan to take suits your body and your specific needs. Then, it’s a matter of taking some notes. Write down how you’re feeling before you begin taking that new supplement. How’s your energy? How’s your appetite? How’s your mood? Then over the course of the next 30-90 days, document any changes you experience, good or bad. Just like exercise, dietary supplements can take while to deliver noticeable results… and like physical changes resulting from consistent exercise, changes resulting from consistent supplementation may be small and hard to recognize day to day. That’s why keeping a journal of sorts can help you identify (and celebrate) positive improvements you may otherwise miss.
