Do You Need to Take Vitamins?

Posted by on Monday, May 1, 2017

Do you really need to take vitamins is a question I get a lot. We should be able to get all of our nutrients from the foods that we eat, and not need to take additional supplementation.

However, it is unfortunate that most people don’t eat enough of an adequate nutrient dense diet. In addition the food that we eat is usually farmed in nutrient depleted soil so we are not getting the highest quality vitamins and minerals we need from just food alone. 

This is why it is important to take additional vitamins and minerals in the form of vitamins and supplements.

Studies have shown that most Americans do not get enough of a variety of colors of fruits and vegetables and therefore don’t get enough phytonutrients and antioxidants they need to support detoxification and prevent inflammation and disease. 

Where Brand Should You Choose? 

There are so many vitamin brands that standing in the vitamin aisle at any store can be overwhelming and confusing. Unfortunately, there is no real regulation and guidelines to say which product is better than another.

This is why it is extremely important to buy supplements from a reputable company. The company should have quality controls in place to test effectiveness, base their formulations on scientific research and work with independent labs to make sure their products meet its label claims and contain no contaminants. 

Where should you buy your supplements? 

While you can get supplements at any pharmacy, you can often find better quality, food-based supplements at higher end natural foods stores (i.e. Whole Foods) and health food stores, and help making your selection. An integrative or functional nutritionist can also help you to identify your specific needs before you head to the store for supplements.

Procedure with caution if you are buying your supplements online through sites and not from the actual distributor of the product. They is no quality control on those types of sites and you can be getting products that are expired or have been tampered with.
