Why people stop taking Supplements?
The global epidemic of Micronutrient deficiency
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimate that more than two billion people suffer from micronutrient deficiency globally.
More than half the calories consumed come from nutrient-depleted, ultra-processed foods, including refined flours and industrial seed oils. It comes as no surprise that so many people are undernourished.
Even if you are super health-conscious, our heavily processed food supply and the demands of modern life can make it hard to get all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals you need from diet alone.
Importants of Micronutrients:
According to the World Health Organization, Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals needed by the body in small amounts. However, their impact on a body’s health is critical, and deficiency in any of them can cause severe and even life-threatening conditions. They perform a range of functions, including enabling the body to produce enzymes, hormones and other substances needed for normal growth and development.
Micronutrient deficiencies can cause visible and dangerous health conditions, but they can also lead to less clinically notable reductions in energy level, mental clarity, and overall capacity.
So why do people stop drinking their supplements?
Not sure it is working?
People often do not adhere to a consistent vitamin routine. The biggest reason people ask “do vitamins actually work” or “are my vitamins doing anything” is because they do not take them long enough to know.
While it may be hard to know what your vitamins are or are not doing for you, the benefits will unfold over time. However, that time frame is long, and it can often take months to years to really reap the benefits. Certain effects, such as acid-balances with gout can take 3-4 months, while other benefits can be seen more quickly. People often notice their nails improving in weeks or they may feel more energetic relatively quickly. Other effects, such as building bone strength is a benefit of custom vitamins that may never be recognized as it is something that is simply preventing future problems with fractures.
Sometimes people experience side effects. For example, when people with gout start taking Chaya they will experience detoxification effects, which is due to removal of toxic substances from the human body, which is mainly carried out by the liver. They experience headaches, and an upset stomach and immediately stop taking the vitamins due to an uneducated decision in this regard.
Often people develop pill fatigue. Some people try custom vitamin packs that contain numerous different pills to be taken daily. These can be unpleasant to take. After a while, many people give up on these packs all together. Avoiding the handfuls of pills found in custom vitamin packs.
Some people are spotty in taking vitamins because they simply forget to take them.
What can we do to succeed in meeting our daily nutrient needs?
Focus on quality and not quantity
More is not always better but good quality is essential. When taking supplements, you need to focus on your basic daily needs and give yourself the best absorbable and clean product so your body can receive the most benefit.
You are better off if you prioritize and focus on meeting your essential needs, not trying to take everything possible under the sun.
Take your supplements daily:
Put them somewhere that is near something you never forget. It may be next to your coffee maker, your toothbrush, or your phone. We can all also benefit from technology and set daily alarms to remind us to take our vitamins and improve vitamin adherence.
Synthetic vs Natural Nutrients
Here is the difference between natural and synthetic nutrients:
- Natural nutrients: These are obtained from whole food sources in the diet.
- Synthetic nutrients: Also referred to as isolated nutrients, these are usually made artificially, in an industrial process.
Synthetic nutrients do not include “whole food supplements,” which are made from concentrated, dehydrated whole foods.
Most supplements available on the market today are made artificially. These include vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids, among others.
To figure out if your supplement is synthetic or natural, check the label. Natural supplements usually list food sources or are labeled as 100% plant or animal based.
Supplements that list nutrients individually, such as vitamin C, or use chemical names like ascorbic acid, are almost certainly synthetic.
Additionally, it is unclear how well synthetic nutrients are absorbed and used in the body. Some may be more easily absorbed, not others. This is because when you eat real food, you are not consuming single nutrients, but rather a whole range of vitamins, minerals, co-factors, and enzymes that allow for optimal use by the body.
Without these additional compounds, synthetic nutrients are unlikely to be used by the body in the same way as their natural counterparts.
Natural whole foods may help manage and prevent heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and early death. These benefits have been linked to the wide range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and fatty acids found in whole foods.
