Supplementation: Part 1 of 7The supplement industry is strong indeed, but few supplements actually confer health  benefits. Two of the few that in many cases do are Vitamin D and Vitamin B-12, which I cover below. Nutrients work in relation with each other in order to be utilized within the body. Often nutrients are required in the right proportion in order to provide the necessary ingredients for the well-functioning of the body. The good news is that eating a variety (wider is generally better) of whole foods virtually guarantees that we get enough of what we need. This is because our bodies can, in most cases, selectively absorb varying amounts of different nutrients from the foods we consume. And the spectrum of whole foods available (at least in moderately- and very-wealthy countries) is brimming with a full array of essential nutrients. In short, the best scenario is that we get a lot of nutrients and specifically that we get them from food, not supplements.

About Sebastian Grubb

Sebastian Grubb is a dancer and personal trainer based in San Francisco. He tours nationally with AXIS Dance Company, having joined the company in 2009. He also performs regularly with Scott Wells & Dancers, freelances, teaches, and creates his own work. As a choreographer, Sebastian draws from his background in theatre, athletics, and philosophy to create work that seeks to be beautiful, conceptual, and a bit odd. As a dance teacher, he places great focus on developing healthy movement patterns that support a lifetime of dynamic movement. In addition to dancing, Sebastian is a private fitness instructor for individuals and small groups. Most of this work is done outside in parks, on stairways and up hills. He is a firm believer in training the body and mind as an integrated whole in order to achieve sustainable results on all levels. He also offers nutrition coaching to his clients and writes about many health-related subjects. “I became vegan for my health and have remained so out of compassion for other animals and the planet. I lead by example when I perform on stage or workout with my clients, showing that a vegan diet is more than adequate for a healthy, vigorous lifestyle.” -Sebastian Grubb
