You may be wondering what we mean when we talk about the ‘food first philosophy’, we’re a multivitamin brand after all. And, whilst yes - our main goal is to give you the best multivitamin on the market today we also want to let you know that there isn’t (and never will be), a supplement that is a ‘miracle’, no matter how strong the marketing message may be.
The truth is, there’s no substitute for a healthy balanced diet, quality sleep, staying hydrated and getting regular exercise… sorry! That’s why here at Evity, we are huge advocates of what we like to call the ‘food first philosophy’ and we want to share with you why that’ll never change.
Although we’re huge fans of our multivitamin, we’re also sticklers for health. Whilst the science of supplements has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, one thing that hasn’t changed is human physiology. In simple terms, what we need to keep both our mind and body healthy, the way our body absorbs the foods and nutrients that we eat, and ultimately the nutrition that the body needs to perform at it’s best.
Being completely truthful (as we pride ourselves in being), there are certain areas that absolutely no multivitamin out there will be able to substitute. That’s because there are factors, outside of your daily diet that influence your health and wellbeing; these can include your genetic makeup, age, your current life stage and importantly lifestyle. What's more, there’s more to just the foods that we eat that keep us healthy. As we’ve already mentioned, our body relies on adequate hydration, regular exercise, managing stressors and human connection… none of which you’ll be able to find in a multivitamin!
One thing we are good at though, is having your back when you’re just too human, have a jam-packed schedule and are just too busy juggling life to think about plugging all your nutrient gaps with food. Perhaps more than that though, ultimately - every diet can have gaps, no matter how good it is. We’re all unique and our diet is no different; whether you’re vegan, pescatarian, paleo, feel you need a little more support or importantly peace of mind; we’re here to help.
