More about weight management and supporting health supplements
One of the major reasons for weight gain is eating foods that are hard for the body to process. Your body gives you hunger signals when it needs more fuel.
Eating the wrong foods fails to provide your body with the complete spectrum of nutrients that it requires. As a result, you feel the urge to continue eating,
because your body is telling you that it still needs additional vitamins and minerals.
There are so many weight management, slimming and weight loss products on the market, and so many claims for these products, that it can often be confusing
for slimmers, even if they know a lot about the health food industry. Forget “fad diets” and “quick fix” schemes. The answer is not to eat less of the same foods or
to have a ridiculously restricted diet, but to consume a wide variety of healthier foods, to eat a balanced diet and to take regular exercise. Optimum nutrition will
almost always result in the ideal weight and body shape for the relevant individual.
Health supplements can play a key role in the success of wider weight management programmes, if they are used appropriately and sensibly. For example,
many slimmers find that supplements can help to ensure their bodies are receiving a broad spectrum of nutrients, without the calories. This is particularly useful
for those trying to shed weight, because it is often the case that once your body gets the nutrients it needs, cravings disappear.
Supplements sourced from whole foods or food extracts (food form supplements) are preferable, because the body can recognise the ingredients. This makes
them easier for the body to process, absorb and utilise. Synthetic and “man-made” substances (regularly used in low quality health supplements) are more
difficult for the body to assimilate and, in many cases, are simply excreted without having any real benefit - a complete waste of money!
The most important thing to keep in mind is that natural ingredients work best for the body and if you can find a supplement with concentrated natural ingredients
(such as extracts derived from natural ingredients), that have been processed very little or not at all, this is the kind of product you should be going for,
irrespective of your health goals. If you have any queries, please get in touch on: 0845 094 3627 or visit our shopping cart by clicking on the ‘Get shopping’ button
