There are a lot of different views about taking supplements. Some physicians recommend that a multi-vitamin be added to your daily diet. Others say that if you are eating a healthy diet there is no need for vitamins. Depending on the vitamin, especially multi-vitamins, you may not be getting what you think you are. I saw a documentary not to long ago that showed some supplements have more of certain vitamins than the label says and others had less. A lot of times, the supplement never breaks all the way down so it doesn’t give you the benefits you think it does. There are so many vitamins and minerals that our bodies need, but if we take to much of some vitamins they can sometimes be toxic to our bodies and cause more harm than good. Herbal supplements are not regulated so it is important to really check them out for all the pros and cons before taking them. If you are taking prescription medication, it is even more essential to be aware of any adverse effects vitamins and minerals may cause. If you are taking any supplements or are contemplating taking some, check out this web site below from the Cleveland Clinic. It is a supplement review with a long list of popular supplements. It shows the pros and cons and then gives a review so you can make a wise decision. There is also a column of conditions and it will give you some different supplements to look at for those conditions.
