Modern malnutrition: How insufficient amounts of micronutrients may affect our health

We often hear that when we eat healthy and diversely, there is no need for a multivitamin/mineral supplement. And even though that sounds sensible, there's a lot more to it. Because eating diversely doesn't always mean that you get all the nutrients your body needs. So here's Supprior's perspective on multivitamin/mineral (MVM*) supplements.

Before we dive into the importance of multis, we want to give you a quick course on nutrients. The composition of all our food is divided into two groups: macronutrients and micronutrients. Macronutrients provide calories, which means energy. They include fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Micronutrients don't have the same energetic role but are essential for the proper functioning of the body. They include vitamins and minerals. When you consume a diverse range of foods, a shortage of macronutrients is relatively uncommon. However, what is lacking is the quality of those macronutrients and micronutrients. And the consequences of this can be quite serious.

Chronic conditions

Many people suffer from chronic disruptions in normal organ functions, such as a weakened immune system, digestive problems, or fatigue. A significant reason for this is the frequent lack of essential micronutrients, because the complexity of metabolic processes in all our (organ) cells require micronutrients. At Supprior, we refer to such deficiency as 'modern malnutrition,' a problem we aim to eliminate. And this is where multivitamins play a crucial role.

Benefits of a high-quality multivitamin

A high-quality multivitamin serves as a reliable support system for your body. It provides essential micronutrients in their natural and optimal forms. By ensuring that every cell in your body receives the nutrients it needs, multivitamins support the functioning of cells. And with that, they support various vital processes like energy metabolism, cognitive sharpness, digestion, hormone balance, and overall bone and muscle health. Taking a multivitamin can lead to noticeable health benefits and contribute to a healthier you.

Positively affect your life

Supprior's founder, Dirk Zoutewelle, has over 20 years of experience studying micronutrients in individuals with various health concerns. It is clear that using a high-quality multivitamin can make a real difference in your well-being. And that will positively affect all parts of your life. Therefore, when seeking a more elevated life, considering a high-quality multivitamin is definitely worth your attention. At Supprior, we're committed to accompanying you on the journey to a more elevated life. We provide you the support you need to make it happen.
