Why Some Supplement Ingredients Are Better Than Others
But did you know not all supplement ingredients are equal? The nutrients in some supplements are more bioavailable – that is, our bodies can better absorb them – than some others.
The conditions in which plants are grown can affect their phytonutrient content and the nutrients’ bioavailability. Phytonutrients are plant nutrients that offer a variety of health benefits.
It’s not about growing plants under ideal conditions, but growing them under the right conditions for the greatest benefits.
Research into plants and nutrition shows that when plants are grown under more stressful conditions, they release more phytonutrients.
There are some multivitamin supplements that contain a unique blend of phytonutrient-rich botanical extracts, for example rosemary from the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa, where the strong sunlight makes growing conditions more stressful – and gives the rosemary more potent levels of phytonutrients.
Sourcing plants with greater phytonutrient content greatly affects the nutritional value of the plant itself – and the nutritional value of the end product.
