Can food give us all the nutrients we need?
This is part question and part sharing of a great webpage.
I have been researching the vitamin and mineral content of food. I came across this website:
It gives some great info on the best sources of vitamins and minerals in both animal and plant foods.
I am not inherently against supplementation but Id rather get all of my nutritional needs from my food and not have to worry about it. In addition, as with anything man-made, I don't believe we know the full effects of supplementing or how effective it is.
So, can you get all your nutritional needs just from food? I am happy to eat offal, shellfish, or anything "out there". Can it be done?
