Choosing a new supplement got you feeling overwhelmed?
Selecting a supplement shouldn’t be as simple as listening to a random testimonial or buying a product based upon claims of symptoms it will alleviate or conditions it will reverse.
Choosing a supplement is personal. It should be specific to what you need and should come from a good-quality source.
Do you take supplements? Do you know why you take them? How do you know you’re getting the best quality active ingredients?
I had a client just the other day who told me a different provider put her on nine different supplements. I asked if she knew what was the function of each. Her answer? ‘I have no idea.’
Supplements need a professional eye to help you navigate through efficacy, quality, and safety. Just because a product states it’s ‘natural’ doesn’t mean it can’t cause adverse effects.
Here are some tips for choosing the right supplement for you!
- Check with a qualified provider before using a supplement.
- Supplements are not meant to replace the nutrients you get from healthy food.
- “Natural” ingredients do not mean a product is safe. Some products may interact with medications and other supplements and cause serious adverse effects.
- Carefully read the supplement label, follow directions, and heed warnings.
- Buy supplements from a reputable and trusted source. Supplements are not regulated.
- Be aware of health claims that sound too good to be true. More than likely, it is.
