Supplements are there to supplement an already good diet. It’s something I come across as a health coach, that there are some people who think that if they take a supplement they can eat really badly as the “supplement helps me get all I need.” It’s an unfortunate belief as it’s untrue. If you take a supplement it will not protect you or keep you healthy if the rest of the time you are not eating well nor following a healthy lifestyle. Also some supplements are better quality than others and some studies have shown that some supplements do not contain what they say on the bottle.
I personally love Spatone (for iron) and Floradix (iron and B vitamins) and also enjoy taking doTERRA LifeLong Vitality (aka LLV). If I need magnesium I look for magnesium glycinate.
Supplements need to be part of an overall healthy lifestyle that includes good food and fluid choices, movement, good sleep and wellbeing.
