WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HEALTH SUPPLEMENTS BEFORE YOU BUY

lv1This content is more or less a disclaimer. This information is in no way meant to dissuade any of you from investing in and using health supplements. This information is meant to keep you up-to-date and knowledgeable about what you are getting into.

Anytime you try a health supplement, you need to be aware of what you are actually putting into your body, no matter how “healthy” the experts claim them to be.

1)Always, and we do mean always, look at the label. The label will have everything you need to know. It will have the serving size. This is the size you are “supposed” to take, not the amount some people actually do take. The label will include all the ingredients, even those pesky added ones. These are the ones that some companies “fail” to report. Most health companies will report everything. Please read the label first. If something needs to be adjusted, it’s best to speak with your doctor first.

2)Always take the “effectiveness” into account. Yes, these supplements really do help to bring some added nutrition into the diet. This is especially good for those who are not necessarily getting the right minerals and such. However, it’s never a good thing to rely on these things solely. In other words, do not replace actual eating with these supplements. There are minerals and such that the foods you eat supply, things that these supplements can’t readily supply.

It’s best to keep a good balance of both. Use the supplements only when you are supposed to, while keeping a healthy diet.

3)Though there are a lot of vitamins and minerals in these supplements, it’s always best to check out the possible side effects. It’s always good to know if a specific vitamin could have an adverse reaction.

Take Vitamin K for example. It’s can reduce the effects of a blood thinner. This is going to be bad news for people who use blood thinners to stay healthy. Vitamins C and E might reduce the help of chemotherapy for Cancer patients. It’s all a paradox in some way or another. It’s up to you to spot the paradox and take the necessary precautions.

4)You also should keep in mind the quality of the health supplements you are going to be taking. Not all of these supplements will be of the highest quality. It all comes down to how much you are willing to spend. The cheaper the cost, the lower the quality. The more money you are willing to put out, the higher the quality you will be ingesting. Some can’t afford the highest quality, so they have to make do. No matter what choice you make, there is going to be a gamble.
