I take store-bought vitamins as well. I was under the impression that these vitamins were improving my health. But recently, I've learned more information about how the body processes vitamins the best. Check out this video:
From what I've learned, your body digests vitamins the best when they come from real food sources. Most vitamin supplements you find at the drug store are made in a laboratory and could be made from petroleum or coal tar. (Yuck!) Mineral supplements may come directly from mines in the ground or are made chemically in the lab. Tests show that the body does not absorb these types of supplements well. Vitamins found in real food are easier to absorb and retain than synthetic vitamins.
So will eating a lot of produce and natural food meet our vitamin and mineral needs? The problem is, today's corporate farm-grown vegetables are often stripped of the vitamins that they used to have.
Enter NutriVerus. NutriVerus powder, made by Mannatech, combines natural, food-sourced vitamins, minerals, glyconutrients, and fat- and water-soluble antioxidants in a nutrient-dense real food base of rice bran and organic fruits and vegetables. It claims to boost your energy and support your immune system.
But does it? I'm trying it for one month to see if it works for me. So far, I've mixed the powder into smoothies that I've had each day. It mixed well with the smoothie and I didn't taste any difference with it in. You can also mix it into other liquids, soft foods like applesauce, or just sprinkle it on top of food like any condiment.
And is it helping? I do think I have a little more energy, and I do seem to be sleeping better at night. But it's so early in the process, it's hard to tell whether the NutriVerus is really working for me. Stay tuned - I'll be posting about my NutriVerus journey throughout the month!
Doubtful? Good! You should definitely check into the science behind NutriVerus. Here are some links for you to read:
