To Supplement or Not to Supplement- How To Choose the Right Dietary Supplement

That has been the question on many people’s minds as a recent reports showed the dangers of supplement overload. Taking a multi-vitamin daily is always recommended as a healthy staple in every diet from childhood all the way through your adult life. However, with vitamins & minerals the mindset that more is better is absolutely wrong.

First and foremost a balanced healthy diet is priority, and when you fall short on that then you should supplement. A multi vitamin will provide you with the necessary vitamins & minerals your body needs. You don’t need to add anything extra such as Iron & B6 unless your deficient in these areas, all things you can see with the appropriate blood work during your annual exam.

Like everything in life educating yourself is the key. Multi-vitamins are not created equal. There are different types that cater to men, women of different age-groups/stages of life. Ask your medical practitioner. Do research on the benefits and hazards. Above all aim at living a clean & healthy life.
