Whether from a health condition, a deficiency or due to diet, shoppers know taking a supplement is a great way to provide the additional nutrients they may lack. But do they also know the advantages that come with taking a supplement derived only from plants? With a rising trend in transparency and organic initiatives, shoppers may benefit more than ever by understanding what exactly makes these supplements special.
Why Supplement With Plants?
While many supplements are made synthetically using chemical processes that extract or isolate a particular nutrient to provide a concentrated supplement, plant-based supplements are derived from whole foods, namely fruits, vegetables and grains. Plant-based supplements work through interaction with micronutrients and metabolites found in the plant. These nutrients tend to work together to maximize their efficacy.
