Do you know why it is important to take a supplement?
I heard a statistic, which I can't seem to find again, and I don't know the validity of it but it's food for thought none the less. Also, it came from a valuable source so I believe there is a lot of truth, even if the numbers aren't exact.
It was something to the effect of; You would have to eat 68 peaches today, to get the same nutritional content in 1 peach 50 years ago! Isn't that mind boggling, crazy! The reasons being:
the soil isn't as fertile
the farming practices aren't as natural
fruit is not left to ripen on the trees anymore
the turnover of the crop land is much quicker
all the handling
And on and on and on...
So, even if you are eating your fresh fruits and veggies, you just aren't getting enough. Period.
You need a good multi-vitamin to "supplement" the healthy whole foods you are eating. It's not really an option anymore, your body won't get what it needs without it.
I am really passionate about this.....
So... I am hosting a GIVEAWAY! My first one ever and I'm excited about it.
These nutritional chews I often throw in my son's lunch. They are nutrient packed and full of fruits and veggies that he doesn't have time to always eat at school.
My children love these. They beg for them. They get one a day, simply because they are expensive and they are considered a "treat." We don't use the term "treat" lightly around here.
Mannatech's products are all derived from real food sources. They are not synthetic. They are made from real food. They make up for the extra nutrients that unfortunately we aren't getting in our produce anymore.
So, here is the scoop. To enter the giveaway leave a comment telling me something you have learned from this blog. I want to know what the readers want to hear.
Also, those of you who have followed my blog from the beginning get an extra entry, automatically. I know who you are :)
If you aren't a follower, then become one :) please.
The GIVEAWAY entries will close on Friday February 10th so you have until then to post your comment and enter the drawing.
I will announce the winner on Friday, whenever I get to it.
And if you don't want to risk not winning come see me and I can order you some really beneficial supplements :)
