Why they're called SUPPLEMENTS, not
Naturally, the best place to get your nutrients is through
your diet. Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits.
Supplements are just that. They don't and can't take the
place of the real thing. Every time you eat raw broccoli
you get a variety of supplements.
What really makes the difference is the combination of all
the substances within that vegetable or piece of fruit.
If you are like most people today, your diet is lousy as far
as fruits and vegetables and you need the supplements.
Take care that you try to combine some of them for the maximum
effect. It is not a perfect world in a bottle of
supplements not even in that multi vitamin.
Did you know that B12 supplements do not last for 24 hours
and that is why you are told to take that supplement twice a
day. Read the labels and follow the directions. If
the label says twice a day or 3 times a day or with food or
without food ----- there is a reason and that reason is the
ability of your body to utilize that supplement.
There are some supplements that you should be taking on a
regular basis. Hey, this is a growing list and by no means
complete. Do you have a favorite item? Let me know
and I will include it.
