The "V" Word (Part Two)

Economic factors can greatly affect your ability to follow a healthy diet. Let's face it, eating a low fat, low carbohydrate diet can be costly. Food prices world wide are now at at an all time high.

Organic farmers everywhere are feeling the pinch as they now find themselves having to pay more for feed and suitable natural soil treatments for planting. This equals into higher costs at the market for consumers globally. For example, what used to cost 15-20% of monthly wages has now gone up to an average of 40-60%. Believe it or not, these staggering figures are quickly becoming a reality for many people. It is solely up to the individual to make informed choices about their health in order to ensure longevity.

These days, it is only a matter of time when one will ultimately have to make a substitution of a lower quality food in place of a higher quality food. If you are ever faced with that decision, vitamin supplements are a great back up source, as they will provide your body with the minerals and nutrients it needs in the event of your diet failing you. Even though you may not realize it, being deficient in a vitamin can greatly hamper your performance as well as your overall health.

When you look for supplements, you should always look for those that contain vitamins B6, B12, D, E, and folic acid. The combination of these vitamins will help your body to remain healthy, boost your immune system, and keep you feeling energized. Non-alcohol based liquid vitamins and herbal supplements are the best to take due to their ability to quickly assimilate into the body. However, if you are unable to find a suitable brand, vegetarian-based capsules or tablets with rapid absorption capabilities are an excellent option.

You can find them online or at local nutrition stores, many of which are not that costly (when compared to the average cost of a visit to the doctor's office).  Keep in mind that you should never replace food with vitamins, as they are exclusively meant to supplement nutritional deficiencies in your diet.

Anytime you aren't able to eat the right food, you should always turn to vitamin supplements to give your body what it needs.

"If it's for free, its for me."                                  --A good friend of mine
Low cost is great, but free is always better....
