Why Whole Food Protein Powders are better for you...

It is important for you to understand the significance of how whole food supplements and herbal remedies support your health and the natural healing lifestyle.

  • The difference between most over-the-counter vitamins and a natural whole food supplement
  • Why we don’t get enough nutrients from our diet
  • Why we need whole food supplementation and how it supports our health
  1.  So, what is a whole food supplement?
    Whole food supplements are concentrated nutrients from organically grown vegetables such as kale, Brussels sprouts, beets, and carrots, to name a few, as well as selected glandular extracts. These contain the highest level of vitamins, amino acids, phytonutrients and the myriad of other nutrients found in our foods. Now in contrast, a fractionated synthetic vitamin is an isolated nutrient. Many companies feel that parts of a vitamin can be synthesized and manufactured in chemically pure isolated from high concentration. However, you don’t find isolated vitamins in foods. They are always found as a complex within the foods we eat.  SP owns and farms over 1000 acres of certified organic land full of rich black soil laden with minerals and nutrients. Using sustainable agriculture techniques, they grow strong, vital plants for use in their whole food supplements.  Read more about the organic farms.
  2. You might ask: why don’t I get enough of these nutrients from the food I eat every day?
    This is a great question and we should all eat a wide variety of foods that provide some of those nutrients. Unfortunately, because of conventional farming techniques, only limited nutrients are available in the soil for the plants to draw from. Of even more concern, pesticides and herbicides inhibit the ability of the plants to draw certain nutrients from the soil and contribute to the toxins found in the foods we eat. Therefore, your best efforts to eat quality foods still may result in key nutrient deficiencies.
  3. Now, how does using whole food supplementation support your health?
    Many people encounter nutritional deficits in their daily lives because often the foods consumed and the lifestyle choices made cause imbalances within the body.  When your body is subject to nutritional imbalances or nutritional deficits for extended periods of time, it will lead to health problems. These health problems may result in many symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, digestive issues, blood sugar imbalances, hormonal problems and the list goes on and on. When you replenish your body with the proper supplementation, derived from whole organic foods, your body can rebuild and regenerate in an amazing way. Your body’s main purpose is to maintain balance and optimal health.

Tips for your shake:

  • Use frozen fruit and eliminate water/ice for a frosty, thick smoothie
  • Mangos or peaches give your shake a nice zing
  • Slice extra ripe bananas and freeze for easy use
  • Increasing fruit will increase the sweetness, but will also increase the calories and may interfere with weight management
  • Add stevia, honey or dates as a healthy sweetener
  • Adding a ¼ avocado per serving will make protein shake creamy
