To supplement or not to supplement?
In my opinion, absolutely. But I hear from many, including medical professionals (noting I am not one) that vitamin supplements just create expensive urine, and in most cases they are right.
The supplement must do what it is designed to do, not replace a poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle but to fill in the gaps that all of the above information creates. Once you do everything else you can do.
That being said, you ideally would be looking for a whole food supplement not a synthetic supplement created in a laboratory. It needs to be tested to ensure quality. They need to contain not only vitamins and minerals but phytonutrients as well, the things that science has shown to be in all fruit and vegetables and are actually essential to the body and increase resistance to disease and sickness.
Talk to me about supplementing, I can recommend quality supplements for you to try.
