'' Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner, was an early pioneer on the necessity of vitamins and minerals for optimal health, stating, “You can trace every ailment, every sickness, and every disease to a vitamin and mineral deficiency.”
But do we really need “extra” vitamins and minerals? Shouldn’t it be enough to just eat a good diet, exercise regularly and make good lifestyle choices? The answer, unfortunately, is a resounding “no.”
From the depletion of the soil our food is grown in, to the rise of industrial farming, to the nutrient-zapping time delay from factory farm to family table, very few—if any of us—can rely upon diet alone to deliver the nutrition our bodies need to perform well. Food is just not what it was back in grandma’s day.
An increasing awareness of the nutritional deficiency of our diet has fueled the growth of the supplement market—to an estimated $30 billion annually in the US—as people flock to pills and powders to get a nutritional boost.
Today, over half of American adults take supplements, most in the form of a multivitamin. But do these vitamin supplements deliver on their promise of nutrition or are they offering false hope?''
How many of us have been taking handfuls of pills over the years thinking they are good for us? Me! At one stage, I was taking up to 30 tablets a day, all 'vitamins' and some by what I thought were 'good brands'. When I realised how damaging these toxic vitamins had of been to my system, not to mention the money I had wasted, I literally felt sick.
Because there are hundreds if not thousands of vitamin brands in the world, and only a tiny teeny amount are actually from organic and wholefood sources, its sickening knowing that the 'natural health world' is full of lies as well. You really have to be very savvy and smart to know what you are taking is good for you.
This is why I love Touchstone Essentials! It's obvious they are one of the good guys, and in fact, in my humble opinion, one of the BEST! Every product they make is not only from ethical sources but are raw (processing is with low temperatures) and organic from farms which are producing the best quality food. You don't get the 'off cuts' of these veggies and fruits either, they are from what you would want to eat off your plate.
If you have been taking synthetic vitamins (which I can assure you - you have been! ) then please Have a read of the 'Five Problems with Vitamins'
So what can you take that is going to be good for you? And won't be a waste of your valuable money?
Touchstone Essentials has made a 'Supergreens + D' formula which is basically like eating a whole table full of super powerful veggies! There is also organic mushrooms in here too and these little beauties are fast becoming known to be so essential for long term health. Not to mention Vitamin D too we are mostly all of us very deficient in Vitamin D. The source of Vitamin D in this actually comes from a vegetarian source, not from lambs wool. There is also a whole bunch of essential enzymes which will make your tummy more able to digest these tablets and help with digestion in general. So many people have big problems with their tummy's and again, if you are taking synthetic vitamins, your tummy ain't going to want to actually absorb them!
So for something you can actually trust, I really recommend Touchstone's Supergreens + D formula!

This “super broccoli” is an excellent source of sulforaphane, which is known to have several protective properties. It also has highly concentrated, vegetarian Vitamin D, and antioxidants from organic mushrooms. (Most vitamin D products are synthesized from lamb’s wool. Ugh.)*
We’ve also added carefully cultured enzymes to help the body absorb the nutrients, plus a proprietary blend of probiotics—the good bacteria that fight the bad bacteria in your gut, for a peaceful tummy.*
