The human body has to be considered like a soil.
When we are young our body is rich in nutrients: minerals, vitamins, and hormones combined with a healthy and balanced diet to help keep this perfect "world" in balance. Life, however, hardly offers to us optimal epigenetic conditions that permit to maintain these conditions over time: frenetic rhythms, stress, little exercise, bad diet, medicines in addition to natural ageing lead us from the age of 35 years on wards to impoverish this soil.
Through the years, the blood tests clearly show that mineralogical and vitamin deficiencies are more and more frequent with the consequent increased possibility to favor the onset of different pathologies. To maintain these values optimally, unfortunately, the diet even if healthy, is not enough, because it also depends on a number of factors related to the environment in which we live, the work we do and, in women, pregnancies, menopause and other factors mean we need help.
Nutriceutical science based on natural organic phytotherapy products helps to restore and maintain optimal levels of nutrients, helping also to modulate the hormone levels related to the proper functioning of organs essential to optimal metabolism.
Why organic? Our body is not a sponge that absorbs any substance.
Supplements of chemical and synthetic origin are marginally absorbed by our organs in the indicative measure of 10% while products of organic origin are absorbed around at 90%.
And this must be a clear evaluation parameter for those who need supplements.
However it should be underlined that dietary supplementation should be made exclusively under medical supervision and not following self-proclaimed advertisements that promise miraculous results by taking supplements or multivitamins often of chemical origin or under the advice of people who do not have a specific medical preparation; even worst when we rely on word-of-mouth.
What was good, assuming that what really brought positive results and always carefully considering the placebo effect triggered by expectations rather than real effects, to our best friend does not mean that it will be good for us too.
Taking supplements without knowing what our corresponding physiological levels are, related to elements we are taking, at best it wastes money because with already optimal levels we will dispose through urine and feces the "miraculous" effect, and then how useless a supplement will be.
Often, however, an uncontrolled and probably useless intake involves fatigue for kidneys and liver, intestinal inflammation risking to cause disorders or trigger latent pathologies such as allergies, intestinal intoxication and dysbiosis as well as being able to present possible allergic interactions with any current drug treatments.
It is therefore necessary to pay attention to what we take in the form of a supplement because there is no seasonality, age or climatic conditions that require universal intake of food supplements, but an individual physiological need that must be previously verified and evaluated by a medical professional in the sector.
Through specific blood tests we can establish what your body really needs for your wellness in a dedicated program that will take care of your diet, fitness and any need of your body to achieve the best well being.
