Food supplements

CBD and food suplements
Food supplements are products that can help, strengthen or assist the natural functions of the organism. Modern food supplements are natural materials, most often plants or their oil extracts, which have been known for their healing properties for years through tradition. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, dietary fibre and other important substances.

Supplements are intended primarily for disease prevention, but can be used as a complementary means to achieve better health.

According to the World Health Organization, only 10% of nutrients were deficient in the diet before 1950, but 30% after 2000 due to the use of artificial fertilizers, dyes, preservatives and various additives.

It is considered that, within a period of one year, an individual consumes 4 kg of dust and 4 kg of pesticides and antioxidants.

In cooking, a lot of nutrients are lost and an individual consumes very little raw food (fruits, vegetables) compared to refined food.

The purpose of consuming food supplements:

  • The supplements are most effective in maintaining physical harmony or prevention

  • For eliminating initial malfunctions in the operation of our body

  • In severe health problems as an auxiliary agent

  • For rapid regeneration and recovery after disease and improving the quality of life


The main objective in planning a diet with supplements is:

  • Detoxification of the intestine, lymph and blood circulation

  • Providing supplies of all necessary nutrients and/or supplementing specific phytochemical and other necessary compounds

  • Enabling energy reserves and promoting the body’s self-healing abilities
