Well, lets dwell a little bit on both of these: Multivit + Wholefoods

What is Multivitamins?

In short, it is what the name suggests – many different types of vitamins. These in turn prevents vitamin/nutrient deficiency (like how sailors get scurvy from lack of vitamin c), fill our nutrition gap, and to provide more energy, maintain, and improve health.

This is particularly important to picky eaters, which many of us are, sometimes unknowingly.

Wholefood nutrients, huh?

What are wholefood nutrients? They are nutrients & phytonutrients that are contained in foods. These are present in spirulina, reishi mushroom, white tea and wheatgrass.

This comprises four different ingredients

  • Spirulina – an ingredient that’s believe to be able to fight cancer, boost immune system, normalizing cholesterol, and more. It is believed to be very beneficial (fun fact: also a popular ingredient to higher grade koi fish food!)
  • White tea – least processed tea with highest antioxidant level, which in turns prevents cancer, lower blood pressure, cholesterol, gives you stronger bones and more.
  • Reishi mushroom – well documented Chinese herb, also known as Ling Zhi. Believed to be anti-bacterial, an antioxidant, helps with insomnia, fatigue, asthma, etc
  • Wheatgrass – increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. You can get these in many juice stations too.

oxydation – rusty knife

Wait, there’s more, what is Antioxidant?

Antioxidant isn’t exactly something to prevent rusts for your pen knife, but rather substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals, which is something that may play a role in heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. Free radicals are produced when body breaks down food, or from environmental exposures such as cigarette smokes and radiation.

Some antioxidant substances are Beta-carotene, Lutein, Lycopene, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. You also find them in food such as fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, and some meats, poultry and fish

 OK, tell me about Phytonutrient

The substance that provides many of the bright colors, flavors, and aroma in plant foods that is thought to provide positive health benefits. The Australian National Health and Medicine Research Council recommend a varied diet to obtain all the necessary nutrients and phytonutrients.

Now your turn!

It’s your turn to try the Nutribeat Groove Counter and see the result for yourself. If you are like many who aren’t getting everything you need from regular food intake, perhaps it’s time to rethink our food intake, or consider adding dietary supplements. After all, the golden rule of thumb “prevention is better than cure” is pretty accurate.
