Support your body with minerals and vitamins and your body will thank you!

It is easy to get lost in the myriad of options offered at stores and online. Zhanna Tarjeft, FNP uses only the 3rd-party tested quality supplements that are free of gluten, soy, dairy, and other potential food allergens. 

There are so many reasons why we cannot function properly and why we may experience brain fog, fatigue, and trouble sleeping.⁠⠀

At least, twice a year I focus on supporting liver detox pathways in addition to maintaining optimal nutrition and adding cruciferous/sulfur veggies to name a few.⁠⠀

Life happens though and I am not perfect and my diet is not always perfect. I am working on getting rid of perfectionism as a trait as it adds more stress to my life and impairs the work of my immune system.⁠

Why We Need to Supplement?

The Myths

🍎 All vitamins and minerals are obtained from the foods.⁠


🍎 The quality of the supplements and vitamins is not important.

Arguments

🔆Pesticides - Roundup is in everything, even organic produce gets contaminated.⁠ 🔆GMOs. There are almost no veggies/fruits/grain left that would be unmodified. Soy is an example - 99% of soy on the market is GMO. More sugar in fruits is more and less vitamins.⁠ 🔆 Storage. The longer the fruit is stored, the less vitamins it contains.⁠ 🔆 Ripening. Fruits and veggies picked green and sprayed with a gas that helps them turn red or pink or other natural color! Thus, the fruit is not getting exposed to natural sunlight that helps the veggies/fruits get the most nutrients.⁠

Bottomline

Over the past 30-50 years, due to the use of chemical fertilizers, the soil has become poorer, and if the soil is poor, then the products grown on it.⁠ ⁠ The best option is when they are picked and eaten in the first 30 minutes or, at least 2-3 days. So, if you have any of the following symptoms you may need to work a little harder on supporting your liver.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ✔️Lack of energy⁠⠀ ✔️Difficulty concentrating⁠⠀ ✔️Mood swings⁠⠀ ✔️Trouble sleeping⁠⠀ ✔️Digestive symptoms (constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating)⁠⠀ ⁠
