Healthy nutrition concerns us all
As industry insiders and Metabolic Balance caregivers, we believe that it needs people who take ownership of their healthy food again. A intelligent premium nutrition concept and healthy food will help you a lot. We all have it in our own hands: diversity instead of monotony, careful food intake instead of fast consumption, local production instead of assembly line.
Behind this is the insight that organic farming, craft in food production and a healthy environment are the prerequisites for tasty and healthy food. Moreover, we live in times of climate change, increasingly scarce natural resources and the loss of biodiversity. That’s why more and more consumers want to know where and how their food is made. In addition, it is in the zeitgeist that people in their everyday lives, for example, are interested in regional seasonal cuisine and old varieties.
In summary, there are people who re-value food more often than they continue to alienate from the source and their producers. Conscious connoisseurs of healthy food discover with all their senses and take responsibility for their health.
The role of industrial meat and milk production
Resources of our Earth system have their natural limits. Hence, fertile fields and grassland for the industrial meat and milk production is not arbitrarily reproducible. The subsequent intensive use of available agricultural land has dire consequences for climate and species protection.
The industrial production of meat and milk consumes many times more resources than the production of alternative foods because of the grain, soybean or maize production for animal feed. Every year, arable land for fodder production is expanded as consumer demand for meat and milk continues to rise.
This situation is causing increasing pressure on producers who need to further improve their yields per hectare of land. As a result, the maximum increase in yields per hectare due to fertilizers and pesticides in many places ends up in leached soils, diseases of the population and pollution of the groundwater. In addition, monocultures and intensive farming increase CO2 emissions and destroy biodiversity.
Against this background, the conditions for flavourful and healthy food are now under serious threat. The stress limit of our Earth system regarding damage to biosphere, deforestation or nitrogen and phosphorus cycle has long been reached. We are threatened with sudden and irreversible changes in our livelihood. The earth can feed the world without further ado – only it needs appreciation for the available natural resources.
The role of modern food retailing
Modern food retailing with supermarkets and discounters distributes large parts of agricultural production. In Germany, four groups – Edeka, REWE, Schwarz Group (Lidl, Kaufland) and Aldi – control around two-thirds of the market. The higher their market share, the greater their control over the trade of food. As a result, few corporations have the power to determine which food customers find predominantly on the shelves. In addition, traders are influencing food production itself. Their business models rely on price pressure in all directions to lure customers with cheap products. The bargaining power of farmers and producers, on the other hand, is very weak in view of deregulation and liberalisation, with few exceptions.
Looking back, it becomes clear how the expansion of supermarkets has changed the eating habits of many people. First there are canned meat and vegetables from the assembly line. Subsequently, processed food such as e.g. frozen products or pre-mixes from the bag, which invite for quick consumption. This food often contains low nutritional carbohydrates because they are cheap to buy on the world market. In addition, industrial manufacturers process thickeners, flavor enhancers or preservatives. Often people – blinded by packaging and advertising promises – no longer perceive what they regularly provide their body.
That’s why label reading is almost essential for mature consumers today. We recommend that you should be critical when dealing with additives. Please take personal responsibility by starting to read the labels on the offered products more attentively.
A number of civilization diseases affect our well-being
The altered eating habits described above are related to the civilization diseases. The “deadly quartet” – high blood pressure, diabetes, lipid metabolism disorder and obesity – is widespread in Germany. Even one of these symptoms can be life-threatening. At the very least, there is an impact on the well-being and efficiency of dangerously affected people.
Such diseases of affluence could be alleviated or even cured with conscious nutrition. However, the German health system is much more focused on quantity than quality. That means a practitioner, be it e.g. the general practitioner or the internist, is paid according to the amount of patients treated. If a doctor prescribes drugs too fast for lack of time, the quality of the medical care suffers.
Conscious or mindful eating is not a diet. Rather, it is about a different way of nutrition – namely, a smart premium concept and healthy food. The food supplies humans with all nutrients and vital substances. In addition, they slow down inflammatory processes in the body. For this purpose, work is done on a few set screws of your nutrition.
