Take the ‘Whole’ Approach to Your Wellness
 
 
Every year at this time, in some way or another, most people take stock of their life and health, recognize the gaps and readjust or create new goals with a path to reach them. As you move into the rest of your year, rather than make your health goals about weight loss, consider starting a routine that benefits you as a whole and can help keep you on the road to wellness every day, not just for the
month of January. Taking this “whole approach” to wellness can be as easy as switching to “whole food supplements”. Whole food supplements are not a trend but an emerging category that consumers are embracing due to an increased need to augment their diets with vital nutrients, which are lacking in food sources. Before we can explain a whole food supplement, you need to first understand what a whole food is. A food of any sort is considered a whole food if it is unprocessed or unchanged in any way. These include fruits, veggies, nuts, eggs, fish, and whole cuts of meats. When a food is left in its whole state, it contains naturally occurring proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. They typically contain a number of micro and macro nutrients such as trace minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients and amino acids. It is these vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you require for good health. Sadly, they are lost through over-harvesting and processing our food sources. Whole Food Supplements are made by combining blends of concentrated, dehydrated (dried) whole foods into powders, tablets or capsules. If you are consuming whole food organic supplements from a dedicated manufacturer, you are reaping the benefits of the whole foods including bio-enhanced ingredients and micronutrients. Whole food supplements offer free-state nutrients, which keep the integrity of the whole food intact, increase bioavailability and maximize absorption.
 
 
Why Consider Natural Factors Whole Earth & Sea Supplements
 
 
Whole food supplements are an emerging category in natural health and as such, there will be many brands scratching to get into this market. Keep this is mind before you purchase these products because the process of keeping foods in their whole state must be done with utmost care to ensure the integrity of the ingredients and all of their micro nutrients. If your whole food supplement is cheap, they may have cut some corners and may not be using the true definition of a whole food supplement. Natural Factors has a full line of Whole Earth and Sea supplements that
use organic whole foods as the base of their offering. The whole plants used in its products are harvested right from its Canadian farms. They are raw processed at its own facilities, using a unique technology to ensure the supplements contain the raw nutrition of whole plants. Natural Factors offers a Whole Earth and Sea vitamin E made from sunflowers, and a vegan vitamin D sourced from wild-harvested lichen. Whole Food Multis for men and women are our new favorites as are Natural Factors’ Whole Earth & Sea Fermented Organic Protein & Greens. This makes your quest for whole living really easy, as everything is in one place, from green superfoods, fermented grasses, fruits, vegetables, and even micronized medicinal mushrooms to support an active, healthy, and sustainable lifestyle.
