With the amount of pollution (air, water and food) today, our hectic lifestyle and our diet, we are making ourselves sick. All we need is one of the following and we are on our way to accelerated aging process and development of disease:
1. a lack of nutrients and vital substances
2. lack of oxygen in the cells
4. oxidative stress

We are living in a polluted environment.
It’s not always easy to eat in a balanced way.
Most of us lack time, are lazy or sheer ignorance keeps us from consuming a balanced diet. Who really eats the minimum of five servings of fruits, vegetables and salads every day?
And even then, the supply of all essential nutrients is not always ensured (partly due to modern agricultural practices)
In addition, risk factors such as smoking and alcohol further the demand for more nutrients. When taking medicine, our bodies also need more nutrients as many medicines (eg: Antibiotics) do not just increase the demand but also reduce the absorption of nutrients from food.
Thus, supplement is a MUST to ensure our nutrients needs are met. However, there are so MANY health products in the market. Everyone claims theirs is the best. So how do you choose?
Choose supplements that have:
1. high absorption rate (no point taking a lot of pills but little nutrient is absorbed)
2. effective (good synergistic effect)
3. safe (International GMP)
4. taste good (let’s face it, who wants to take smelly tablets or drinks daily? )
