Why Take Supplements?

Why Take Supplements?

One part of living a life of wellness is getting in all the right nutrients so we can function at our best.

This should be done with nutrient-rich, whole foods whenever possible. Our bodies are designed to best absorb nutrients from the foods we eat.

Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible.  

In a perfect world, our soils would be rich with all essential nutrients, and the foods we eat and the water we drink would have all the vitamins and minerals we need.

But this isn’t the case anymore. Our soils are depleted. Our bodies are missing many important nutrients. Even when we eat lots of natural, organic foods, we’re still missing many important nutrients.

Supplements, by definition, add what’s missing. They fill in the gaps, even for those who make the best possible food choices.

 

Here are 3 key nutrients most people aren’t getting enough of through foods.

These are also 3 reasons to consider adding in a daily supplement.  

 

sunlight

1) Vitamins D3 & K2

Vitamin D is very important for wellness, yet research shows nearly 50% of the US adult population don't get enough.

Optimal levels of vitamin D are strongly correlated with:

  • A lower risk of cancer
  • Decrease in depression
  • A better mood
  • Healthier heart
  • Greater bone strength

Vitamin D is best made when we absorb the sun's rays on our skin, but with so many of us living indoors under artificial light, supplementing with this critical nutrient is often necessary.

When looking for a good vitamin D supplement, there are 3 things to look for:

  1. Look for D3 (cholecalciferol), rather than D2 (ergocalciferol). D2 is a cheaper form of vitamin D, and your body won’t receive the same benefits as it would from D3.
  2. Look for the right source. There are two common sources of vitamin D3: the first is from chemically processed sheep's wool (Lanolin). The second, far more natural source, is Lichen. Lichen are small algae-like plants, that absorb lots of sunlight, making them a rich source of D3.
  3. Look for D3 with Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is probably the most important vitamin you've never heard of. Vitamin K2 helps with the absorption of vitamin D - if you take D3 without K2, your body likely won't absorb all of the D3 effectively. Vitamin K2 is also critical to our overall bone health.

 

Magnesium

2) Magnesium

There are few nutrients more important to the human body than magnesium. It plays a roll in over 100 functions in the body, with some key benefits including:

  • Heart health
  • Better sleep
  • Better digestion 
  • Bone health

Studies have shown that over 75% of Americans are deficient in magnesium.

Magnesium can be found all throughout nature - with the highest contents of magnesium coming from natural water sources and some foods like leafy greens, avocados, and nuts. However, it's very difficult to get all of the magnesium we need from foods, so supplementation is often necessary.

Here's what to look for in a magnesium supplement:

  • The right type of magnesium. There are 11 types of magnesium, each having slightly different benefits to the body. For example, one of the most common types, magnesium oxide, is cheaper, but it isn't absorbed as well by the body. Magnesium malate and magnesium L-threonate are 2 great options that are absorbed very well by the body.
  • Free from fillers. Most supplements include unnecessary fillers and flow agents that help the machines produce more supplements quickly. Here are a few to avoid: Silicon dioxide, stearates, carrageenan, and modified food starches.

 peat

3) Trace Minerals

Are you commonly weak, shaky, or fatigued during the day?

You likely aren’t getting in all the trace minerals you need.

Trace minerals are essential nutrients such as selenium, sulfur, sodium, iron, and manganese that come from water and soil. Today, the backs of many water bottle brands now list the trace mineral content.

Unfortunately, most of our modern waters and soils are depleted from many of these minerals.

One source found in nature that mimics rich organic soils is peat.

Peat is substance that looks like soil and is formed by the partial decomposition of vegetable and organic plant matter. Ancient peat is peat that has been fossilized and is especially rich in carbon, magnesium, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur - making it a great way to get in the minerals we need.

Here are a few ways to get in more trace minerals:

  • Simply drink more water from a quality, natural source
  • Adding trace minerals drops into your drinking water
  • Looking for quality supplements that contain trace mineral blends

Conclusion

The 3 nutrients most of us aren't getting enough of are:

  1. Vitamin D3 & K2
  2. Magnesium
  3. Trace Minerals

Supplements can't replace healthy habits. Yet even with healthy habits, it's both difficult and complicated to get in all the necessary nutrients from diet alone.

That's why we've created Seek Simple - one supplement to take out the guesswork.

Simple contains all 3 of these important nutrients, with all being completely derived from whole foods - as close to nature as possible.

Getting in all the right nutrients is complicated, our all-in-one formula is designed to make it simple.
