Go For Natural Foods Not Supplements
- 9 Months ago
Every day we learn of an increasing number of people taking some form of supplement hoping that they will feel healthier. Some take a general vitamin and mineral supplement to ensure against possible deficiency; some take protein supplements to get a good physique or for body building; others take extracts and concentrates of specific plants to treat a particular condition. While a few supplements offer genuine benefits, using large amounts of them, especially when you don't need them, can be harmful. Hence it is always better to have natural sources of these nutrients rather than a supplement; unless it is essential for you or it is prescribed by a health professional. Here is a list of commonly consumed nutrients through supplements and their natural food sources you can choose instead:
Vitamin A - egg yolk, dark green leafy vegetables, yellow-orange fruits and vegetables, dairy products, liver, apricot.
