Summary: 

As any cursory student of dietary science knows, our food supply today (what with processing, soil depletion, etc…) is far from what our ancestors enjoyed.  A growing body of research indicates that nutritional supplements can provide us with nutrients that we used to be able to get in our food, as well as new “neutraceutical” combinations shown to have great promise in improving health in a variety of ways.

Vitamin D
Antioxidants
