Why You Should Take These Nutraceuticals: They Are Essential For Health
Are you eating cold-water fish weekly? Most of us aren’t.
After all, eating fish regularly can be expensive. We don’t always have access to wild-caught salmon and other seafood. Some people don’t like the taste. Others want to avoid mercury, a dangerous toxin that can damage your brain and nervous system.
Yet, fish is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Fish provide two crucial omega-3 fatty acids — eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) — that can lower inflammation levels and lots more. Your body can’t make EPA and DHA, making them “essential.”
Once upon a time, we consumed about equal amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Today, however, we eat many more inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids: 20 times or more, in fact. These inflammatory fats lurk in conventional meats, processed foods, vegetable oils, and other foods most of us eat regularly. READ MORE

Daily Essentials Perspective
The food we eat today differs dramatically from what even our grandparents ate and definitely what our Paleolithic ancestors hunted and gathered. Many factors adversely impact much of the food we consume today, such as:
1. Depleted topsoil means the foods we eat have fewer vitamins and minerals we need.(1)
2. More people eat processed, packaged, and fast foods that may contain toxins rather than cook their own meals.(2,3)
3. Many people eat conventionally-grown crops, which contain pesticides and antibiotics, rather than organic foods, which have more nutrients and no toxins.(4)
This means that even if we do eat a whole foods diet, we might not get the right amounts of the essential nutrients we need to consume for optimal health. Nutraceuticals and other lifestyle strategies can ensure your nutrient intake meets your health needs and your body functions properly.
