Tree and plant supplements are minimally processed and can offer several advantages over synthetic vitamins and minerals. The process starts with a plant that is naturally high in the desired nutrient, which is then extracted to create a plant-based supplement that can provide a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.
One of the most desirable traits of plant-based supplements is that you know what you are getting. Plant-based supplements typically do not have the synthetic fillers, toxic chemicals, and artificial sweeteners that can be present in other supplements. Your body is equipped to handle plant-based supplements because the body has evolved to recognise and use nutrients that come from the plant sources that our ancestors found in nature.
Further, plants contain a complete spectrum of vitamins, minerals, aromatic oils, and phytonutrients. In many cases, these nutrients work together. In addition, plant-based supplements typically carry a lower risk of mineral toxicity than their synthetic or animal-sourced counterparts.
