Everyone Needs Dietary Supplements - Everyone Needs Health Supplements       Some people may say, "why bother with health supplements?"  Some people today would like to believe that all we have to do to keep ourselves healthy is to eat a proper diet.  That's where the problem lies.  The question I propose is, "What is a proper diet, and how do you go about getting it into your system?"  Some would say, "Well by eating healthy food."  There's another problem. What is healthy food and where do you find it?  You won't find it at your local grocery store as you will soon find out.  Others might say, "We have a garden where we grow our food."  That's a start, and it also tells me that you are already aware of the fact that there is a need for a more nutritional food supply.  Home gardening is good but it's a lot of work and the average person just doesn't have the time and probably the energy to go that route!  Someone might say, "What about buying organic produce at the grocery store?"  That is a good idea, but here are a few things to consider.  First of all, this kind of food is usually very expensive, and your choices of foods are limited.  Your menu may become quite boring after awhile.  Also, there is the matter of freshness, which I will go into more detail later in this essay....   [tags: Health Nutrition Diet Exercise Essays]
