Most of us understand that it is important to have a healthy diet, but knowing and doing something about it are two different things. Our daily lives often get in the way of creating healthy meals, which means our diet may fall short of the daily recommended allowance of some nutrients. To make things more complicated, it may be difficult for the body to process some nutrients from food for a number of reasons. (2)
For example, B12 is typically found in animal-based foods yet with age or certain medical conditions, it becomes difficult to absorb this nutrient from food sources. (3) Also consider Vitamin D, which our body produces with UV light from the sun. The time of year, geographic location, skin tone, and age can interfere with the natural process that occurs in your skin, plus, it also isn’t found in a wide variety of foods. (4)
