A Guide to Vitamins & Supplements
This special e-book explores the health benefits of vitamins and minerals. You may have heard that its a good idea to take a multivitamin or other vitamin or mineral pill as insurance against dietary shortfalls. That might be good advice, depending on your diet and overall health; consult with your physician before starting any supplement regimen. But be aware that you should try to obtain most of your vitamins and minerals from food, not from pills. Studies have consistently shown that the synergy of obtaining essential nutrients from your diet delivers greater benefits than when the same nutrients are taken as supplements.
