Think Thin Thursday ~ There's Gold in Those Diet Supplements

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

Supplements seem to be the mainstay of the 55 and over crowd in the U.S. with 74% taking some type of vitamin or daily dosage of something. Our youth aren't far behind and while their choices differ they consume them at a 68% rate daily. Do supplements work? That's the difficult thing to determine as individuals. There are 50,000 products out there with all sorts of claims offering weight loss, energy, libido enhancing and more. The usual path takes each supplement on a decade long journey where they peak and another MIRACLE pill or drink takes its place. Don't get me wrong , many of these products can be beneficial but along with that they can be detrimental too. Pick and choose wisely, please watch the short video below. It can help decipher the myriad of the good, the bad and the ugly!

Understand that the business of nutritional supplements exceeds $40,000,000,000 a year here and much of it is sketchy at best. Also understand at the onset what you wish to achieve with your supplement and read unbiased reviews of the one that interests you. Here is a list of the most common dietary supplements we now consume. As always, check with your Doctor to find your compatibility level.

I try to avoid chemical ingredients whether it be a supplement or food product that is produced.

There are a number of supplements I take and I know they help... my nails are stronger, my hair is thicker, my bone density is good, my vitamin D levels are not depleted. The issue is, as with most things in life, not overdoing it.

Hi Kevin- It's confusing trying to figure out what to take. Larry's neurosurgeon had him go oof any kind of fish oil because he told him we'd be surprised at the number of people who he sees from brain bleeds.

Moderation is key, Kevin! Trying the 'new fangled' supplements that make promises they can't keep...not so smart!

I take a handful with my doctor's approval. He suggested I add one which I haven't.
