In a recent study in 2014 25% of the Irish population don’t eat enough vegetables in their daily food intake. Our team of Personal Trainers at The Edge: Clontarf all believe we should eat large amounts of good quality fresh vegetables every day for optimal health.
Most vegetables that we consume are not very calorie dense so this means we can and should take in more green veg with each meal. There are many different benefits from an increase of green veg in your diet:
1. An alkaline body
2. Aids digestion
3. Boosts immune system
4. Supplements your natural minerals and vitamins
You can achieve your RDA of greens by eating a combination of vegetables such as:
It’s important when you look to get your ‘5 a day’ in that you focus moreso on vegetables than fruits. Vegetables are more nutrient dense and aid better with fat loss due to a lower natural sugar count.
If you find that you struggle to consume an adequate amount of vegetables, you can try a nutritional supplement. Our product Infinity fuel is the perfect supplement to add into your nutritional plan, with each serving of Infinity fuel having up to 8 servings of fruit and vegetables, ideal for topping up your current vegetable intake, particularly in the run up to your holidays or a big occassion.
Supplementation is key to a healthy lifestyle and living at your optimum level- increased energy, more positive outlook, improved gut healthy, clearer skin, healthier nails and hair, sounder sleep- Just some of the benefits of a healthy and balanced diet with careful supplementation!
But don’t just take our word for it- See some client testimonials of our various in-house supplements:
Siun Fitzgerald – “Ive been taking The Edge brand Infinity Fuel, Super Multi-vitamin, Probiotics and Fish Oils for just over 2 years and they have become an integral part of my daily diet. I have always supplemented but not as religiously as I do now because I didn’t feel that generic store bought products had any effect. Since switching to The Edge brand supplements this has lead to increased energy, increased immune system, better hair, nails & skin , increased digestion and a much better overall feeling in general”.
Rob Johnstone – “From my own personal experience, Probiotics have become extremely important for the health of my stomach as I have discovered that a lot of problems originate in this area of the body. Since I’ve started taking the Probiotics with my breakfast and lunch, they have helped me completely detox my body of all the medicines/anti-biotics I had been on over the years, my health has only gone from strength to strength…I would recommend them to everyone”
Emma MacNaughton – “I started taking the Edge Vitamin C powder in September. I take 1-2 scoops in water and sip on it throughout the day. As a teacher I generally pick up every single cold and flu going, but this was the first year that I didnt take one sick day. I firmly believe that this vitamin intake has played a significant part in that and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a hectic lifestlye.”
Ian Jordan –“Since ive started taking the Edge Infinity Fuel one week ago I have already noticed an increase in my energy levels and it has helped me reduce body fat in places where I had been struggling to lose it before”.

“Every disease can be linked to a nutritional deficiency”
Linus Pauling – 2 time Nobel prize winner
Humans, unlike plants who require only up to 9 essential minerals for growth, need over 60 essential minerals for optimal health and longevity. With this in mind, it is quite difficult to obtain a healthy diet full of all of our essential nutrients unless you are eating all of your vegetables from organic sources derived from nutrient rich soil. In most cases, our diet lacks some of the major essential nutrients that our body requires to function at its most optimum state of well-being.
The majority of our clients who start training with us often think that diet alone is sufficient for obtaining everything we require to live a long and healthy life. We take our health one step further and with specific supplementation, we can start to live optimally, meaning we build our immune system, we are healthy and nourished, we sleep more soundly and we increase our energy levels naturally.
Apart from our soil not being as ‘potent’ or as nutrient rich as it once was, our lifestyles in the past few decades have changed dramatically! We are working more than ever, we thrive on stress, breathe more pollution, consume more processed foods, have less sleep and, inevitably, begin to suffer health-wise as a consequence.
Let us think for a minute that, if indeed it were true that we could receive our full spectrum of nutrition from our diet alone, then people would be healthier than ever before- sadly though, this is not the case.
Fueling your day- Fueling your future!
