Making the shift from supplements to functional foods can be a great way to optimize your nutrition and overall health. Here are some steps you can take to make the transition:
Assess your current supplement intake
Take a look at the supplements you are currently taking and identify the nutrients you are trying to address. This will help you identify functional foods that contain the same nutrients. We are confident that you will meet most of your health goals with our range of innovative functional foods. Feel free to navigate to our functional food e-shop and choose the ones that suit your needs.
Choose nutrient-dense whole foods
Functional foods are whole foods that provide specific health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Choose nutrient-dense whole foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial compounds. Examples include leafy greens, berries, nuts and seeds, whole grains, and legumes. Combine our functional foods with any of the above and maximize your targeted vitamin and mineral intake on a daily basis.
Identify specific health goals
Determine your specific health goals, such as improving digestion, reducing inflammation, or boosting energy. This will help you choose functional foods that provide the specific benefits you need.
Incorporate functional foods into your diet
Start by adding one or two functional foods to your daily meals. Gradually increase the number of functional foods you consume as you get used to incorporating them into your diet.
Experiment with recipes
Look for recipes that incorporate functional foods, such as smoothies with leafy greens and berries, or salads with nuts and seeds. Experiment with different flavors and ingredients until you find recipes that you enjoy.
Monitor how you feel
As you transition from supplements to functional foods, pay attention to how your body responds. If you notice improvements in your health or energy levels, you may be on the right track.
Substituting functional foods with supplements is a great way to optimize your health in the long run and keep that state of health for much longer. Functional foods provide a much more comprehensive set of nutrients and bioactive compounds integrated within the complex food matrix, which practically means higher bioabsorption and bioavailability rates. Choose a trusted brand and consider sustainability as one of your selection criteria.
Remember to always consult with a healthcare professional before making any significant changes to your diet or supplement regimen.
