What about Vitamins?
Key points to consider before taking vitamins and/or supplements.
- Nutrition First: A balanced diet should include plenty of fruits and vegetables, foods low in fat and high in fiber, low sodium and sugar, and a combination of protein and carbohydrates.
- Nutritional Deficiencies: It is difficult to get the necessary amounts of nutrients in food along. example is the use of Vitamin D in our diets, something that has become increasingly deficient in many adults and children in recent years.
- Nutritional supplements and vitamins are helpful in getting the nutrients needed for a healthy body. For example, fish oil has been shown to be effective in fighting a number of illnesses and diseases, from cardiovascular to diabetes to brain function.
- Safety and Efficacy:. There are a variety of products on the market today and choosing what is best can be confusing to the average consumer. In order to ensure your safety, you need to be aware of the source, manufacturing process, distribution and sales of these products.
