What Are Whole Food Supplements?

Take a moment and think about what you eat throughout a given day. Some of us lead very busy lives and are constantly on the go with very little time to eat, let alone the time to think about making healthy food choices. 

Or maybe you live a more sedentary life and have slipped into the habit of eating lots of junk food. Do you try to steer clear of the vending machine options all around you but end up eating the unhealthy stuff because the healthy stuff is just too expensive?

As you picture your day and think about what you typically eat, try to stack up what you eat next to the main areas of nutritional needs your body requires on a daily basis: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, and vitamins. And then break that down further into the number of portions you need for fruits, veggies, grains, and dairy, each and every day. 

How do you think you measure up?

The reality is that even if you are eating a decently well-balanced diet, you likely aren’t getting the nutrients or at least the proper amount of those nutrients your body requires. 

But there are solutions. Whole food supplements—created from concentrated, dehydrated whole foods—can make up the discrepancies between your nutritional intake and what you still should take to meet your body’s needs. 

Whole Food vs. Synthetic

Many people take supplements with nutrients that are created synthetically. They are typically created through artificial processes. Synthetic supplements can give your body the nutrients it's looking for, but some concern exists as to whether synthetic solutions are the safest or best way to get your needed nutrients.

When we eat something, our bodies undergo a series of processes that break down the food and absorb it. Since synthetic supplements lack the organic or naturally-occurring aspect of organic whole food vitamins, there’s a chance our bodies aren’t absorbing the artificially-created nutrients in synthetic supplements as effectively as they do whole foods

Forms of Whole Food Supplements

You can take whole food supplements the same way you take any synthetic ones: pills or powder. It makes the most sense to be taking your supplements orally because the nutrients will be pulled and absorbed just like they would if you were eating a non-dehydrated carrot or stalk of broccoli. 

Most people will take their pills in the morning when they wake up, but as long as you’re taking it once a day, the time of day doesn’t really matter. If you opt to take your supplement in powder form, you can mix it seamlessly into smoothies or juice drinks. 

If you’re taking any of the following supplements, consider these tips for when and how to take them:

  • Multivitamins: Take these with a meal
  • Calcium: Take it whenever, but consider dividing it into two doses a day
  • Iron: Take this on an empty stomach; usually one to two hours after eating
  • Fiber: Take it in the morning or right before bed—either time with a glass of water
  • Magnesium: Combine with a calcium supplement and take it during meal time
  • Vitamin C: Take two to three times a day during meals

Why Take Organic Whole Food Vitamins and Supplements?

The benefits of natural whole foods can’t be overstated. Break any whole foods down into dehydrated and concentrated versions of themselves, and you’re likely to reap similar benefits as if you’d eaten them in their natural state. At Samuraw Nutrition, that’s exactly what we’ve done.
