hey guys dr. axe here hey I wanna talk to you how to get more nutrients in your diet and this is a big deal because most of you watching this are nutritionally deficient maybe you’re deficient in zinc which can affect the way that your body regenerates and heals itself maybe of an issue with vitamin C or vitamin D where your immune system isn’t strong enough maybe your person where your notice maybe it’s your bone health your joints and ligaments don’t feel the best so maybe you’re deficient in different phytonutrients from tumeric or certain other vitamins and minerals that are critical for your joint health I don’t know what it is exactly with you personally but I do know this all of us need to be getting more vitamins minerals and phytonutrients in our diet I want to talk about the three ways to do that number one eat more seasonal foods foods that are ripened season and local produce you know most of the food you consume if you’re go to your average grocery market has been shipped over from Mexico or China or somewhere overseas it’s been shipped for about two weeks and so actually it was ripen to the point to where it’s not fully nutrient dense in fact did you know listen this is pretty shocking that a lot of foods gain their largest amount of nutrients their last two weeks before becoming fully ripe so when you don’t consume a food that’s fully ripe in terms of the way you grow it you miss out sometimes on 50% or more of the vitamins and minerals also a lot of the soil people are growing foods in today are void of nutrients in fact other studies showing that the nutrients in the soil 100 years ago is much higher than it is today so all that being said how you remedy that will you buy foods that are seat that that are in season that are local and organic foods as well they’re going to be higher in nutrients than others and so remember that because of their ability to be fully ripened less pesticides and chemicals helps you keep more vitamins and nutrients and so on so make sure when you’re buying produce and food that it is seasonal organic and ideally local the next tip into getting more vitamins and nutrients in your diet you want to consume foods that are more nutrient-dense you know so many of the foods that we’re eating today are made up of white flour products wheat flour products they’re made up of corn they’re made up of grains and processed foods that really don’t have that many nutrients and so that’s another great way to get more nutrients in your diet stay away from the nutritional avoid foods and do more here’s the highest categories vegetables fruits herbs and spices okay so vegetables fruits herbs and spices berries of all the fruits actually berries are the most nutrient-dense green leafy vegetables and then the herbs and spices so herbs like cilantro and parsley and thyme and oregano spices like tumeric and ginger and cinnamon getting those in your diets gonna help ramp up your overall nutrients and last but not least taking the right supplements okay supplements can actually help you get more nutrients and so for a lot of people you might be deficient in magnesium or vitamin D or zinc or vitamin C but taking a high quality multivitamin can be a great way to get more vitamins and nutrients as can a super greens powder okay so those are two big supplements that can really help so a super greens powder that may contain spirulina chlorella wheatgrass juice oat grass juice maybe it has some super berries like acai and goji berry but do that super greens powder every single day when you’re buying a multivitamin I mentioned this earlier you want to have see some vegetables in there and some herbs and spices because they’re the richest in nutrients there as well so again a greens a multivitamin a probiotic is another good supplement because it helps you absorb your vitamins and minerals better and if you can do those three things you’re going to amp up your nutrients so remember this by when you’re buying your produce make sure it’s either local or seasonal or organic or all three that’s get the best of all those worlds number two eat more vegetables berries herbs and spices and number three get some of those vitamins and summons that can really help you take care of all your nutritional needs so I hope you’ve enjoyed watching this video on how to increase the nutrients in your diet
