The World Of Supplements – E49
We’ve been talking about nutrient density and bio availability in the soil, but with far from ideal nutrient levels in our food, more than half of Americans take dietary supplements. Much like foods, the nutrients in supplements may or may not be nourishing depending on how or out of what they are manufactured. We talk to John Willard about Willard Water, a supplement that increases the absorption of nutrients from foods and supplements. Later we talk to wellness coach, Jim Wilkin, who answers our question “do the vitamins and minerals in most multivitamins come from food?” Um, no. With so many supplements and multivitamins in health food stores now claiming to be whole food derived, can we expect that they are organic and sourced from non gmo ingredients? Listen and decide.
