Your body needs vitamins and minerals each day to remain healthy and function properly. Recent negative media on the use of vitamins has prompted many questions from patients. “Are vitamins bad? The answer: NO. Without any vitamins or minerals our bodies would not ward off disease or function properly. Excessive use of vitamins and supplements has become common place. It is the excessive use of vitamins that has negative effects. Vitamins and supplements cannot replace a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, we often need help on the road to optimal health. Research has shown how stress, the environment and lower quality food all play a role in vitamin and mineral depletion. Vitamin supplements were created to prevent
the diseases that occur when we do not have certain minimal levels of those vitamins in our bodies.
There is a multitude of vitamins and supplements with so many reasons to take each one that most people end up overwhelmed. More often than not, less is more. Excess amounts of certain supplements and vitamins can negate any health benefit they might have in lower amounts. Find the right balance. Take what you need, in the right amount, from a high quality source. Add other supplements, as needed, based on your individual health level. It is important to work with a health care professional
that will support your journey to optimal health by guiding you in your individual needs and to ensure that the supplements you are taking are of high quality. The
last thing you want is to spend money on a vitamin or supplement that does not actually contain what is needed or is in a form that your body cannot absorb.
