Nutritional supplements, like most other products, are sold in a commercial environment driven by a profit motive. The greed factor often leads to lower cost ingredients being used, which may not provide as much health support as nutrients that are better absorbed and utilized.

Nutritional deficiencies may be caused or worsened by poor digestion, absorption, assimilation or utilization of nutrients. Supplementation of vitamins, minerals, protein concentrates and other nutrients is frequently represented to us as indispensable in a world of stress, pollution and devalued commercial foods.

Synthesized and crystalline vitamins are not as compatible with the body. Inorganic minerals are not well used. These are not identical with the nutrients in a food. There is life force in a plant. There are living enzymes, and other organic mineral compounds and trace elements that are synergistic. The nutrients work together for  the cell to make energy, be healthy and function well.

Super foods like Northern Edge organic milled flax seed, Delicious Greens with 8000 ORAC units of antioxidants per serving, organic spirulina, flower pollen extract and herbs, are very important to be added to the diet for the minerals and phytonutrient compounds they provide.
