Nutritional supplements are those key elements identified as missing or lacking from a particular patient’s health profile. For example, vitamins, minerals, amino acids (like L-Glutamine), trace elements (like selenium) and other cellular nutrients are used to support good health and treat illness.
“Our pre-agricultural ancestors would have had an intake of most vitamins and minerals much more than levels in the modern industrial diet. The source of all vitamins and minerals for our pre-agricultural ancestors was whole foods; especially whole fruits and vegetables which contain all the phytochemicals and other essential cofactors.
However, we realize that it may not be practical, affordable, or even possible to consistently eat and/or juice a large amount of fresh, local, organic whole foods with enough variety to ensure sufficiency in all micronutrients.” – Dr James Chestnut
