Neutraceuticals

Healthy on the inside = beautiful on the outside
 

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”, Hippocrates said 2,500 years ago. Wise words, that apply more than ever today. Because all too often we turn to medication when it would be smarter to keep our body healthy by giving it the right nutrients.

Research of the so-called Blue Zones (regions where people live the longest and are in very good health) shows that a diet rich in nutrients leads to a longer and healthier life. It is often said that if you have a healthy diet, you don't need supplements. Residents of the Blue Zones prove this to be true. Unfortunately, in Western Europe, not many of us adhere to the Blue Zone diet and get the benefit of its abundance of nutrients, with major negative consequences for our health (such as autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, depression and cancer). A few examples:

  • About 40% of the world's population has a vitamin D deficiency

  • 72% of the Dutch don’t consume enough vegetables and therefore lack important nutrients

  • 98% of the world's population is deficient in omega 3

Precisely because not many of us adhere to the Blue Zone diet, it is necessary to supplement certain deficiencies. At Amsterdam Plastic Surgery we believe in Neutraceuticals made with nutrients derived from organic food that have both a therapeutic effect and strengthen our immune system. Because if you are healthy on the inside, you will look more beautiful, fresh and energetic
