The truth is millions of acres of our foods are being raised on land that can no longer sustain the necessary nutrients we need. Our fruits and vegetables as well as our grains, are all starving us – regardless of how much of them we eat.
All across the U.S. and all over the world, our inventory of arable topsoil is gone, because of erosion and the overuse of inorganic nitrogen fertilizers. There are other farming practices that have contributed as well. When soil microorganisms and soil nutrients are depleted, we lose arable topsoil from soil erosion. In fact, In 1936 Congress declared, “The majority of American people are deficient in micronutrients because their foods were not the same as prior generations.”
How This Affects Our Health
When food is grown in soil that is ‘nutrient deficient’ it lacks the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Research shows that over the past 70 years our food supplies have declined significantly in nutritional value. When we don’t get an adequate amount of nutrition from our food supplies, we are much more susceptible to disease.
Our bodies require nutritious food in order to function properly and maintain good health. Food is our main energy source. The nutrients we get from our food are what we need to sustain life. These nutrients are the fuel behind our body’s biochemical processes. We get them from fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, plants, seeds, animals, nuts, meat, dairy foods, and eggs.
For our bodies to stay healthy we need to have the following:
And it is the macronutrients that are our main source of energy. The body needs vitamins and minerals in order to maintain optimum health and void off disease.
This is why supplementation is crucial. In fact here’s what Bill Misner, Ph.D. says, “It is impossible to obtain all the daily nutrients we need from whole food without the supplementing.”
So what’s the answer? Support local farmers, eat fruits and vegetables that are in season, and find high quality supplementation. My go-to is Life Shotz. I was never a believer in supplementation until five years ago when I was introduced to Life Shotz and I actually felt a difference. I then began to research what I just shared with you. It’s scary what’s going on in our food supply. If you have any questions about anything I mentioned here, please reach out!
