Nutrition Tip of the Day - January 19, 2011

nutrition tips

Today's Nutrition Tip:

Get your vitamins and minerals from real food, not supplements. Science has only begun to understand the complex ways in which vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals from food interact within the body. The vitamins and minerals in supplements are not absorbed as well by the body as they are when they come from food. In addition, you run the risk of getting too much. Just as eating too little of a vitamin can be harmful to your health, so can eating too much. While this is generally not an issue with real food, it can be a problem with supplements which can contain 100% or more of the daily recommended amounts, depending on the brand of supplement.

  4. Thanks a lot for the tip. I agree with you, supplements are just alternatives. You'll just need them if you really lack something.
