We all want to be healthy. But what does that even mean? The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as, “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Great! This is a solid start. By recognizing that many factors of a person are important in health, it starts to give us a roadmap toward achieving our goals.
But today, the road to finding or maintaining good health can be hard. And often it is littered with the false promises from the latest fads and expensive quick fixes which never quite deliver. Here at VitaMe, we know that true lasting health requires a lifestyle of healthy behaviors.
In order to work toward our goal of being healthy, we each must strengthen the foundations of health. Air, water, food, exercise, and joy are all fundamental to our state of health. If any of these needs are not met, we are likely to suffer dis-ease of one sort or another. Just like the WHO says, there are physical, mental and social aspects – all of which need to be supported.
As you can see, vitamin supplements are not directly on this list anywhere. VitaMe recognizes that, in the ideal world, it would be optimal for a generally healthy person to strive to meet all their nutritional needs through the foods they eat. This is an admirable goal. But for most of us, between the deadline at work, the kid’s soccer game, and taking the car to the shop, we need a little extra help. This is where VitaMe shines. Our custom vitamins are designed precisely to meet your nutritional needs so that your body has the building blocks it needs to function properly.
However, we can not bottle the benefits of exercise nor can we encapsulate the value of not smoking. Thus, VitaMe’s formulas are intended to be one part of a full healthy lifestyle. One where your diet is still the cornerstone of your nutrition. Where exercise, social connections, and relaxation are all common activities. The vitamins are not a replacement for good health habits, they are an addition to. The vitamins alone will not cure diabetes or high blood pressure or insomnia. But the vitamins can help. They will give your body the support necessary to heal. Couple this with other healthful lifestyle behaviors; like 30 minutes of exercise 3-5 times per week, 64 oz of clean fresh water, plenty of rest, fun with friends/family and an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables. Get all these elements to work together and you will be able to reach and exceed your health goals.
