Veggies with less vitamins? Yes, Iím afraid itís true! According to recent research published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, fruits and vegetables today contain much less nutritional value compared to produce grown back in the 1950ís.
Dr. Donald R. Davis of the University of Texas found that produce grown on huge modern agribusiness farms carry anywhere from 6% less protein to 38% less of the B vitamin riboflavin. Some other essential nutrients found to have dropped dramatically are calcium, iron and vitamin C.
This is one reason most people today arenít getting even the minimum Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of nutrition from the food they eat. And the RDAís are only the bare bones necessary to prevent scurvy and beriberi. Theyíre not any where close to the optimum nutrition you need for excellent health.
Since current hybrid varieties of fruits and vegetables are grown with synthetic fertilizers to increase plant yield per acre, they end up with less nutrition. Plants canít get all the important minerals or synthesize sufficient vitamins and amino acids. Organic produce, however, is grown without artificial fertilizers, pesticides or genetically modified organisms, so itís safer, more nutritious and tastes better too.
Your health is your most valuable asset and optimum nutrition is essential if you want to look and feel your very best Ė all day, every day. Extraordinary vim, vigor and vitality require that you add optimum nutritional supplements to your diet. This assures you get all the necessary nutrients to look better, feel better and have more energy. After all, wouldnít you like to stay younger longer?
