Broccoli. Raspberries. Kale. We all know these foods have super-healthy effects-but it isn't always practical or possible to work them into an everyday diet. Enter whole-food or food-based supplements. In addition to helping cover nutritional gaps, the trending thought behind these freeze-dried powders is that the body may more easily recognize, absorb, and better assimilate supplements from natural sources than synthetic ones. While there's not much evidence to support these claims, people interested in eating more nutrition-rich foods or rely on supplements that are as close as possible to the source. Food-based supplements may be helpful for:
Food-based supplements fall into several categories:
Ideally, food-based supplements have all of the nutrition-including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other vital plant compounds-found in the fresh fruits and vegetables that they contain.
Let's take a look at some of the more common ingredients included in whole food supplements and how they can benefit your body. While the foods have been organized according to their dominant properties or characteristics, many of the ingredients have overlapping and synergistic actions in the body.
"I'd rather see my patients get their nutrients from wholesome foods than from vitamins," explains Dr. Maria Boorman, a Victoria, BC-based physician specializing in whole foods nutrition and functional medicine. "When someone needs a vitamin supplement, though, I prefer to use food-based ones, as I think they're more absorbable. Food-based multivitamins are a good option for pregnant women who need to be careful not to overdose on certain nutrients and whose digestive systems may prevent them from being able to take a standard prenatal vitamin."
Since whole foods supplements often contain concentrated sources of fruits and vegetables, select those that have been tested for pesticide residues or are certified organic. Also look for supplements that have been NSF-GMP (National Sanitation Foundation-Good Manufacturing Practice) registered so you can be assured of the identity, quality, and purity of the ingredients listed on the label
