I think so. Some people have prolonged deficiencies that start to affect all nutrients, it's hard to replenish the ones that you're most depleted without a good foundation, at some point isolated nutrients can be depleting when not supported as a whole because it's all interdependent. On top of that there are the unrecognized factors that our abductor talked about here. That's why I mentioned that any processing has to be careful. Searching for "history discovery nutrients timeline" or something like that can be enough to make you question what do we actually know.Would it be better than supplements of b vitamins and fat soluble vitamins? Sounds like it would be (a lot) more expensive .
