While the vitamin industry is indeed a booming one, with continued growth year after year, doctors’ studies show that multivitamins and supplements simply cannot replace the nutritional value gleaned from eating the proper foods — including fruits, vegetables, beans and seeds. Traina Home Grown® shares more about these findings and suggests an easy, fun and delicious solution — dried fruit!
The Council for Responsible Nutrition reports that 75% of adults take dietary supplements; however, they could be wasting their time, and money, in doing so. According to reports from CBS, people may even be putting themselves at risk if they take too high a dosage of certain vitamins. An article on CBSnews.com reveals that doctors say, “enough is enough” when it comes to using vitamins to supplement proper nutrition. “We believe that the case is closed -- supplementing the diet of well-nourished adults with (most) mineral or vitamin supplements has no clear benefit and might even be harmful. These vitamins should not be used for chronic disease prevention.” This comes directly from the authors of an editorial that summarizes this new research, which was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
With these new findings in mind, it’s important that people take control of their nutrition by eating the right real foods to fuel their bodies. Traina Home Grown® fruitons® are tasty, adventurous and portable — so they are easy to snack on right out of the bag or to toss into meals. They also have a long shelf life, so they can be stashed in an office drawer, car console or gym bag to have on hand whenever hunger strikes. Traina Home Grown fruitons may be little, but they pack a powerful punch of fiber, and can naturally boost energy and fuel the body for a long day or an intense workout. With no sugar added, they are a naturally sweet snack that families can feel good about sharing with children, too!
So instead of wasting money on countless supplements that, according to research, have no benefit to the body, people should invest in their health by purchasing nutritious foods such as fruits and vegetables.
