Balancing your intake

Vitamins and Supplements

Add fruits, vegetables and variety for a wholesome diet.

If you feel you'd benefit from eating less processed food and more fresh fruit and vegetables, you’re absolutely right!

A research team led by scientists at Tufts University and the University of Cambridge reported earlier this year that worldwide consumption of sodium, cholesterol, processed meat and sugar-sweetened beverages has outpaced the consumption of healthier food options. The World Health Organization recommends* eating 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. 75% of us are not eating enough of the recommended amount, creating a gap between what we eat and what we need.**

So it definitely makes sense to take better care of your body by eating a varied, wholesome diet that contains fruits and vegetables. Unlike processed foods, fresh food items are full of the fibres, nutrients, vitamins and minerals you need. Nuts, teas, grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables are good sources of plant-based nutrients.

The role of supplements in your diet

Ideally, your diet should cover all the nutrition your body needs. However, depending on your circumstances, additional multivitamin and multimineral food supplements have the potential to fill in the gaps and are a trusted and solid foundation for basic supplementation.

NUTRILITETM Daily (1) offers a basic level of nutrients and plant concentrates or extracts in the form of a convenient daily tablet. If you have difficulty swallowing tablets or prefer a chewable supplement, the NUTRILITETM Chewable Multivitamin (4) is a convenient and tasty alternative.

For a super boost in nutritional support, try NUTRILITETM DOUBLE X™ (2), an advanced formula that contains concentrates or extracts from 23 plants, which has been developed to deliver enhanced nutritional support when there are greater demands on your body and you require even more nutrients. The monthly supply comes in a 3-cell tray divided into multivitamins, multiminerals and phytonutrients. Amway also sells separate refills. (3)

Supplements are not a replacement for a well-balanced diet, but they can provide extra help in maintaining comprehensive nutrition all year long.
