PREMIUM INSURANCE CAPS: YOUR STRONG FOUNDATION
BY STEVE BORN
"Neither supplements, nor those professing to consume a balanced diet, are without nutrient deficiencies." Those are the words of Dr. Bill Misner, and I couldn't agree more. I don't believe that any of us can neglect our diet and think that we can cover all of our nutrient needs simply by taking a handful of pills. By the same token, I remain adamant that none of our diets—no matter how consistently we try to eat as healthy as possible—come close to providing all of the nutrients we need for optimal health.
That's why I take Premium Insurance Caps every single day, and I have for as long as I can remember. It doesn't replace my efforts to eat the best diet I can as consistently as possible. But Premium Insurance Caps most definitely bridges the gap between what I should be obtaining from my diet, nutrient-wise, and what I'm actually getting. This balanced approach of healthy diet and intelligent supplementation ensures that I've covered my nutritional bases.
WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE PREMIUM INSURANCE CAPS
For optimal health and enhanced athletic performance, you must aim to consistently consume a high-quality diet—not just for the vitamins and minerals, but also for the beneficial phytonutrients, enzymes, and fiber. To augment that, "filling in the gaps" between what your diet should contain and what it actually does provide, daily supplementation with a high-quality vitamin and mineral supplement is equally important.
It's up to you to take care of your diet. But for a superior vitamin and mineral supplement, Premium Insurance Caps is the way to go. It is formulated with Optimum Daily Intake (ODI) amounts of the highest quality vitamins and minerals for optimal health. In addition, Premium Insurance Caps contains ample amounts of other important nutrients, as well as digestive enzymes to help maximize absorption.
Sadly, far too many athletes and active people discount the value of taking a vitamin and mineral supplement, instead putting their faith in the notion that "you can get all you need from your diet." That's a major mistake. Additionally, many athletes don't place much emphasis on taking a multivitamin and mineral supplement, perhaps because they feel it won't have much impact on their athletic performance. This, of course, isn't true. Here's why:
Providing your body with adequate supplies of vitamins and minerals is similar to pouring a strong foundation when building a house. Without a strong foundation, the house will lack structural integrity. Similarly, without adequate vitamins and minerals, many of your important bodily systems (especially your immune system) will not have the support needed to function properly. At the very least, this means you won't get the full value from all of the hard work you put into your training. It could also very well result in a compromised immune system, which is definitely something to avoid.
I encourage you not to fall victim to the "you can get all you need from your diet" myth. Additionally, please don't consider the use of a multivitamin and mineral supplement as being unnecessary. Remember, as an endurance athlete, you place enormous physiological demands on your body, so your nutrient requirements—just to maintain health—are much greater than the average person's. As Dr. Misner states, "Endurance athletes require more minerals, antioxidant vitamins, and water-and fat-soluble vitamins, because exercise intensity or duration takes its toll, often depleting them faster than food can alone resupply them."
Your goal isn't just to maintain health at a minimally acceptable standard; your goal is to achieve supreme health! In addition, you want to get the absolute most out of your body so that it can do what you want it to do during your workouts and races, while you have more fun and achieve greater success in the process. That's where an intelligent, first-rate supplement program comes in; it plays an undeniably vital role in helping you achieve optimal athletic performance and overall health. Premium Insurance Caps is the foundation of that supplement program!
