I think I eat very healthy but I still have concerns about getting the recommended number of fresh fruits and vegetables. After all, it is recommended by nutritionists to eat at least 5 to 7 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day in order to get the optimal daily nutrient intake. Sadly, only about one-fourth of U.S. adults eat the recommended five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Furthermore, the U.S.D.A. has reported that only 36.4 percent of U.S. children between the ages of 2 and 19 eat the recommended three to five servings of vegetables per day, and only 26 percent eat the two to four recommended daily servings of fruit. I know I find it hard to fit all those servings in.
That is why I love Young Living's True Source. It is composed of nutrient-dense super fruits, vegetables, and other plants that offer a full spectrum of bioactive vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients.
The Journal of the American Medical Association (2002; 287:3127-9) published a report by the Harvard researchers, Fletcher and Fairfield, stating that, “Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. Pending strong evidence of effectiveness from randomized trials, it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.”
Eating right by making healthy food choices is always best, but I supplement my diet with True Source to help make up for any shortcomings in my diet! Unlike most multivitamins, True Source is not synthetic which means my body absorbs it easily and I feel the difference!
