Sprouts Essential 4 Supplements
Some say that eating a proper diet is all you need to get the recommended vitamins, minerals, and nutrients for optimal health. But the fact is that we often miss our nutritional-mark by eating suboptimal foods that lack many key nutrients.
To help bridge the nutritional gap where eating falls short, the Sprouts team has put together this simple guide to vitamins and supplements, featuring the “Essential Four” categories everyone should incorporate into their diet.
Probiotics are live beneficial microorganisms that are widely believed to support healthy digestion and immune function.* These friendly bacteria are essential for gut health, as stress, low-quality foods and over-the-counter-medications can destroy probiotic activity, which leads to lower immune function, yeast overgrowth and digestive disorders.
TRY: Sprouts Dual Action Acidophilus & Bifidus, which is ideal for adults because of significant amount of B. bifidum, the beneficial bacteria in the large intestine that diminishes as we age.
2. Superfood Supplements
Red, green or blue superfoods such as salmon, broccoli, goji berries, blueberries and tart cherries are rich in protein and/or packed with phytonutrients and trace minerals that help support overall health and vitality. Their mega boosting performance nourishes your body, strengthens your immune system, and protects you against diseases.*
Vitamins are organic nutrients required by the body for growth, repair, normal metabolism and optimal health, but few of us get the right ones at the right levels. That’s because no single food contains all the vitamins and minerals the body requires; moreover, the combination of eating on the run, high levels of stress and consumption of highly processed foods can lead to nutrient deficiencies. The elderly, adolescents, pregnant and lactating women and vegetarians are especially at risk. Multivitamins provide essential vitamins and minerals needed to maintain optimum health.*
TRY: Sprouts Men’s and Women’s Multi, an iron-free multivitamin with standardized herbal extracts and lutein for eye health.*
4. Omega-Rich Oils
Omega-rich oils are found naturally in fish and flax, among other foods, and are readily available in tasty liquid or capsule form. These essential oils offer valuable nutritional support for healthy skin and brain function. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.*
TRY: Sprouts Omega-3 Once Daily offers 756 mgs of fatty acids per serving to support cardiovascular and brain health.*
