Everything you need to know about food supplements
Food supplements, what are they? Why are they needed? Are they really necessary? And which are the best? These are questions that many of us share and where we will find the answer to today.
What exactly are food supplements?
Food supplements are an addition to your daily diet. These are ofter vitamins or minerals, such as vitamin C or magnesium. Moreover, they can also serve a specific purpose, such as better sleep or healthier skin. The overall goal of food supplements is to improve your health.
Why are food supplements recommended?
A question we regularly get asked is; is taking vitamins and minerals really necessary? The answer is a little more complex than just yes or no. A healthy diet and sufficient exercise contribute to good health. However, there may be times when your body needs a little extra to funtion optimally. For example, when you get older, have a lot of stress, or because your body does not get enough nutrients from food. The latter in particular is a factor that is becoming increasingly important. Due to depleted agricultural land, our fruits and vegetables contain fewer nutrients than they did 50 years ago. This makes it harder to get all the nutrients your body needs.
What should you pay attention to when purchasing food supplements?
Nowadays there are many food supplement providers. This makes it increasingly diffucult for consumers to make a choice. And this while making the right, healthy and sustainable choise is very important. Many supplement providers use harmful and artificial ingredients like fillers, which are used to fill the capsule, or glazing agent and anti-caking agents. The reason these ingredients are used is because they are cheap to produce. But other than, for example, filling the capsule or making it shine, they serve no other purpose and do not contribute to health.

Onder andere doordat onze groenten en fruit minder voedingsstoffen bevatten dan 50 jaar geleden, kunnen voedingssupplementen een goede aanvulling zijn op de dagelijkse behoefte. Een voorwaarde hiervan is wel dat deze de juiste ingrediënten bevatten. Vaak voegen fabrikanten allerlei kunstmatige toevoegingen zoals antiklonter- en glansmiddelen toe, zonder dat deze een bijdrage hebben aan de gezondheid. In onze minicursus ‘Weet wat je slikt’ helpen we je op weg in de kennis over ingrediënten die je beter kunt vermijden. De voedingssupplementen van Goldea Health zijn uitsluitend gemaakt van natuurlijke ingrediënten, lichaamseigen stoffen en 100% plantaardig.
