Category: Nutrition – Sarah – 6:20 am

Many people turn to dietary supplements not just to make up for the lost minerals and vitamins, but also to gain an extra health boost that we believe will keep the diseases off our heads. Before consuming any kind of vitamin or mineral supplement, you must know that not all of them deliver the promised results; some of them can even make the situation worse. It seems very easy and convenient to get all the vitamins and nutrients in just one pill, but some supplements can be very harmful for our health if the right dosage is not taken.

This is due to the fact that many researchers have proved that dietary supplements like Garcinia Cambogia promise us the most hailed nutrient; vitamin D. This vitamin has proved to act as a defense against several chronic and severe diseases including depression, diabetes and cancer. In addition, it also provides us with Omega-3 fatty acids that have been proved for preventing strokes and other heart diseases. Vitamin C and E help prevent heart diseases, breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.  However, there is something bound to be wrong if it sounds too good to be true. All the researches that prove the benefits of the dietary supplements were not tested against an individual taking an inactive pill.

The source of the obtaining the vitamins and nutrients is as important as the fact that you need to include these nutrients in your daily meals. It is highly recommended that you obtain all these nutrients and vitamins through food. Nevertheless, you can consume dietary pills as an alternative; it may not be the ideal option but it is an option that many people choose for their health.
