Adapt Naturals Supplements
Good nutrition isn’t breaking news; it’s ancient.Humans haven’t changed much in the past 200,000 years, but the world around us has—and not in a good way. The quality of our air, soil, water, and food has suffered considerably, leaving us far less equipped to close the ever-widening gap between what we need and what we get.
Our ancestors’ diets were rich in the essential vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients we need for optimal function. But declining soil quality, a growing toxic burden, and other modern challenges have made it difficult to get enough of these critical nutrients. Adapt Natural’s supplements were formulated using the principles of evolutionary biology and modern research to fill the nutrient gaps that we face today and mimic the nutrient intakes found in an ancestral diet.
Most supplements are made with cheap, synthetic ingredients that aren’t well-absorbed and don’t mimic the nutrients we get from food. With Adapt Naturals, all the nutrients are food-based, naturally occurring, or bioidentical—which means they can build upon the nutrition we get from a whole-foods, nutrient-dense diet.
In our increasingly toxic world, the last thing you want to worry about is a lot of allergens and artificial junk in your supplements. Adapt Naturals are made with the cleanest possible ingredients, without common allergens like gluten, dairy, and soy, and without genetically modified organisms (GMOs). All Adapt Naturals products are manufactured in a U.S. facility that meets the NSF’s rigorous good manufacturing practice (GMP) regulatory standards. (Learn more about the Adapt Naturals standard.)
