With so many different supplements out there and the hype surrounding them, it can be overwhelming.
I often hear questions regarding supplements: “Should I be taking them?” “Which ones should I take?” “Does the dose or how often I take them matter?” On top of supplements, there are often claims on food products boasting the content of certain vitamins, but what do these vitamins do for us and how much do we need?
I would like to shed some light on a few different vitamins – what they do for your body, the minimum recommendations and the most noticeable symptoms of deficiency over time.
Below you will find a list of vitamins, along with the good and bad.
Please remember that it’s important to discuss your vitamin and mineral levels, possible supplements that may benefit you, as well as high quality and safe brands recommended, with your doctor and dietitian.
