Why we supplement at Up!
Our philosophy here at Up! Is that fresh is best, local is legend and real food first is always the way to go!
However, we also recognise in our own lives that there are times when that is not enough and this is for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, unfortunately the soil biome in WA is somewhat limited, meaning that not all the vitamins and minerals we need to optimise health are available in the produce here as it is absent in our sandy soil.
In addition to this, sometimes it is hard to eat enough oily fish, fermented foods and leafy greens and that is the time when we feel like we benefit from some extra help!
Now don’t get us wrong, we use supplements as exactly that, a supplement for our diet - not a substitute, we don’t use an excessive amount but these are things that we do actually use and, therefore, recommend!
Of course, because we are using them ourselves as well, we make sure they are what we consider the best! For example the fish oil is non-farmed wild caught in a sustainable way…the protein powder is plant based and not added to, with fillers and nasties and the magnesium is in a powdered form which is highly absorbable in the gut.
We want you to get as much benefit from these as we do! Enjoy!
