Navigating the Vitamin Maze

hogcurcuminWhen you walk into a health food store is the array of vitamins confronting, confusing and overwhelming? Do you wonder whether you actually need a certain supplement or what it is for, or how much to take?

We often hear that if you eat well you shouldn’t need supplements.

With the amount of chemicals we are exposed to, both in our foods and in our environment coupled with the pace of our lifestyle which brings added stress and pressure, supplements are essential health boosters that support our diet, fill the nutritional gaps and rebalance our body whether that be from underactive hormones, trouble sleeping, pain and inflammation, stress, colds and flu, anxiety, lowered mood or lack of energy and vitality.

While I believe that we should eat whole, seasonal, preferably organic food, I also believe high quality supplements are important as well. While they won’t make up for a bad diet they will support your body’s cells to work optimally so that you can live with lots of energy and vitality and to your potential.

Here’s my take on what to take when… some of them are ‘no-brainers’ and others are little-known trade secrets.
