There are hundreds of herbal supplements and remedies out there. If you took all of them, soon you wouldn’t even have enough room in your belly for real, wholesome nutritious food! And a lot of people make the mistake of thinking that taking a million supplements yet eating an awful diet will balance one another out.
There is no supplement on earth that substitutes a nutritionally rich diet!
Nothing could be further from the truth. Why? Because nature made foods a certain way on purpose. You can’t get the exact same benefit out of a supplement which is more one dimensional than a food that you can from the actual food itself. There are hundreds of natural chemicals and nutrients often working together in harmony in a whole piece of fruit of a vegetable that simply cannot usually be replicated in a supplement.
So you have to decide which ones you think are most important and may be lacking in your daily diet, and go with those as a way to just whittle down the list to an acceptable amount of pills you’re popping a day. I myself only take a total of one to three every day.
Prioritize by taking certain supplements only when needed
That’s not to say I don’t keep a lot of others around for periods of time that I may need them. For example, I have an acne remedy that I use if my skin breaks out only. I have one for natural pain relief if I need that. I have one for detoxifying and colon cleansing if I feel my system needs cleaned out after too much indulging such as around the holidays.
Those are just some examples, everyone has different needs though. For example, you could choose to use a high quality omega 3 fat supplement every day if you don’ t think you get enough of this important nutrient in your diet every day. You could just take a high quality multivitamin or greens powder every day to give yourself an overall nutrition boost every day.
Maybe you have chronic stress or anxiety issues, so you can take something like ahswaghanda every night, or some other similar herbal remedy to stress and anxiety.
Whatever it is you choose to use daily tells you where you biggest needs and priorities lie, and to prevent you form overspending on these supplements and simply just taking too many, you should definitely prioritize and figure out what is most missing in your diet and what your biggest health concerns are.
