Have you ever heard the saying, “You are what you eat”?
This statement could not be more true. What we eat greatly affects the status of our health. If we consume foods grossly inadequate in the proper nutrients we need, our body will not function properly. This could cause your body to remain in a pro-inflammatory state, on the verge of causing serious health conditions, chronic pain syndromes, and poor body biomechanics.
What is Inflammation?
Inflammation is a protective response that occurs as a result of tissue injury. Inflammation serves to destroy, dilute, or wall off the injurious agent or injured tissue. However, this response also sets into motion a cascade of events that heal and repair damaged tissue.
Unfortunately, too much inflammation causes problems instead of repairing damaged tissue. Most Americans eat a diet that favors a 12:1 (omega-6 to omega-3) ratio. This means most American diets are prone to an inflammatory state. The ideal ratio is 4:1 (omega-6 to omega-3) or less.
Proper nutrition helps reduce biochemical irritation which reduces joint restrictions. This allows our bodies to function properly and reduce pain. Inflammation is a needed process in our body, but too much can cause biochemical irritation, increased sympathetic activity, increased muscle tonicity, and finally joint restriction. Therefore eat healthy, stay active, alleviate stress, and you will live a much more enjoyable life.
Why Use Nutritional Supplements?
Supplements are to be used as intended, to supplement your diet. Therefore, if your diet lacks essential nutrients, you will need a way to supplement your current dietary intake. ID Life creates customized supplement packs designed specifically for you. This company has created a way to help you figure out exactly which supplements you should be taking.
This assessment will tell you exactly which supplements you need to be taking. Each one of the recommendations is supported by evidenced based research. More importantly, ID Life supplements are produced by Xymogen, which is GMP certified and is the only supplement company that obtains a Pharmaceutical GMP certification. This means ID Life is third-party regulated, and provides both internal and external reviews on all of their products. The review states whether or not the material in the product is actually the product. This company uses the highest quality raw materials, yielding high quality products. All of their products are 100% organic, Non-GMO, Soy-Free, and Gluten-Free.
Most other supplement companies have absolutely no regulations. So if you buy from these companies, there is no guarantee of what you are actually taking. Davinci labs is another certified supplement company that we support. Our physicians are concerned about your health, that is why we only use the highest quality products.
