Vitamins? Yes, please! Getting those vitamins via additives in the food? No, thank you!

A burger with French fries to go – on the run between appointments or doing chores – washed down with a vitamin-infused drink. This doesn’t really work does it! It might ease your conscience but it’s not going to do much getting healthier!

For good health we need the best nutrients from real fruit and vegetables, in fish, meat, eggs and whole grains. Real food has the best chance for wholesome results. Many large-scale research studies have shown that vitamin preparations and supplementing additives added to processed food may not improve health. Often they are ineffective and in the worst case may even damage your health. 

We advise simply reaching for fresh, seasonal, whole food. Always aim to have vibrant colorful food on your plate. Ideally stick to your Metabolic Balance Nutrition Plan to be sure that your body is provided with all the vital building blocks that you really need. 

There are always some occasions where good quality supplements may be the right thing for you. But this always need to be discussed with your health care professional or Metabolic Balance coach. Remember wholesome food first is the best foundation!
