Restaurants, Fast Food, and Dietary Supplements
BY JACK MENEAR, CHIEF SCIENTIST AND PATENT STRATEGIST
Imagine that you just finished a late work project. Now you want some downtime and some comfort food.
So, you drop into Sam’s Burger Pit to enjoy a burger, fries and shake. Or, you go to Nancy’s Family Restaurant for the Blue Plate Special. No cooking and no dishes tonight!
A part of you intuitively understands that this isn’t the ideal choice. No insult to Sam or Nancy is intended.
Hopefully, the food isn’t a nutritionist’s nightmare. But there’s a good chance that your body isn’t getting a full share of nutrients. Over-cooked vegetables lose vitamins, and salt isn’t a substitute for a complete mineral complex. Vitamin C is volatile and reacts with air. After a few hours under the heat lamp, the vitamin C content is less than you think.
There’s no problem with occasionally eating hollow food. Sometimes, you have little choice due to a long work day. But if done too frequently, be careful.
Your body will signal nutrient shortages by getting sick, feeling sluggish, or requiring professional intervention. So, if eating on the run is unavoidable, dietary supplements are valuable. Certainly, you could start with a complete vitamin/mineral product. But there’s more to consider.
For example, a balanced diet builds your immune system. The payoff is fewer days in bed, less agony and better overall performance. There’s more here than meets the eye. The immune system depends on small proteins that acts as messengers. Without them, immunity is compromised. Roughly 25% of supplement buyers say immune support is a key reason to purchase a supplement.
The central point is that “road food” can leave you feeling depleted. Dietary supplements can directly compensate. If you are a salesperson or serviceperson, you may spend a large fraction of your time on the road. That means restaurants night-after-night. Protect yourself with supplements that your body needs.
Some health practices don’t show obvious short-term results. They prove their benefits over long time periods. Good nutrition is one of those practices.
Feeling good is a pleasure. It’s available to you.
