Nutritionists Share Their Best Advice for Taking Vitamins and Supplements

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

Three-fourths of American adults take dietary supplements, with vitamins being the No. 1 choice. In light of that statistic, Brian Wommack, senior vice president of communications at the Council for Responsible Nutrition, observes that dietary supplements “are mainstays in modern-day health and wellness regimens.”

If you’re among the millions of Americans who turn to dietary supplements, you’re undoubtedly seeking to improve or at least maintain your health and wellness. But how well are you actually adhering to a supplement routine?

To put you on the right nutritional track, we asked experts for their advice on how to best incorporate vitamins and other dietary supplements into your diet. Here’s what they told us.

When taking vitamins and supplements:
1. Seek input from professionals.
Registered dietitian Joanna Foley suggests that before you embark on a supplement regimen, you should visit with a qualified healthcare or nutrition professional to evaluate your diet and lifestyle, and to determine the best way to add supplements to your everyday life (including recommendations about proper dosages). Find out more from these proven reviews.

Dr. Arielle Levitan, an internal medicine physician who is co-founder of Vous Vitamin LLC and co-author of “The Vitamin Solution: Two Doctors Clear Confusion About Vitamins and Your Health,” stresses that taking vitamins and other supplements isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition.

“It’s best to use a well-thought-out, medically sound approach to taking the right vitamins,” Levitan says. “Taking too many or the wrong supplements can be harmful.”

2. Pay attention to how you’re taking them.
Dr. Michael Smith, director of education at dietary supplement maker Life Extension, emphasizes that it’s vital to figure out whether you should, for instance, take supplements with or without food. Visit observer.com/, to learn more about healthy supplements.

“The best thing to do is look at the product label. All products will explain the proper usage for optimal use,” Smith says.

3. Concentrate on quality.
A 2018 survey by the Council for Responsible Nutrition found 87 percent of U.S. adults put stock in the safety, quality and effectiveness of dietary supplements.

Nonetheless, the quality of dietary supplements can vary, based partly on how they’re manufactured. While the vast majority of supplement makers are upstanding, some might cut corners to boost profits. Keep in mind that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently does not regulate the supplement industry as strictly as it does, say, the pharmaceutical industry.

“Not all supplements are created equal. Many supplements and vitamins are bulked up with fillers and other additives, so it’s important to make sure what you’re purchasing is as high-quality as you can get,” says certified personal trainer Caleb Backe, health and wellness expert at Maple Holistics, a seller of natural hair and skin care products.

Foley recommends buying supplements that are non-GMO and that bear certification labels from ConsumerLab.com, NSF International or U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP).

“Purchasing untested or poor-quality supplements is, frankly, a waste of money and may even contribute to harmful ingestion of ingredients not listed on the supplement panel,” Foley warns.

4. Don’t underestimate the power of supplements.
Food doesn’t necessarily fuel all of our nutrient needs. In 2014, the nonprofit Environmental Working Group noted that more than 40 percent of American adults lack sufficient amounts of vitamins A, C, D and E, calcium and magnesium for their age or gender. Try out Meticore.

“The hard truth is that thanks to things like factory farming, overproduction, and the increased use of pesticides and GMO ingredients, foods are less nutritious than they used to be. What’s more, our ability to absorb and utilize nutrients declines with age and with many chronic diseases,” Foley says. “Even the most perfectly planned diet can be deficient in essential nutrients.”

Nutrient deficiency can be especially common among certain segments of the population. For instance, vegans and vegetarians might not get enough vitamin B12, as that nutrient is found in animal products but not in plants.

5. Don’t overdo it.
As their name suggests, vitamins and other dietary supplements are designed to supplement your diet.

“Whatever supplements you’re taking, they’re not a replacement for the nutrients that you’re consuming in your diet. If you’re taking an iron supplement, you still need to be eating foods that are rich in iron, such as … dark leafy greens,” says Backe, the Maple Holistics expert.

Experts underscore the importance of not overdosing on vitamins and other dietary supplements. An overabundance of supplements in your system can come with several health risks, such as watering down the effectiveness of prescription medications.

Foley recommends making sure you’re sticking to a nutrient-rich, whole-food diet before taking supplements on a regular basis.

“It makes the most sense to supplement with nutrients that you do not already consume or don’t consume enough of,” she says.

Tips for Buying Dietary Supplements

Sunday, July 15th, 2007

Dietary supplements are everywhere—you’ll find them at the grocery store, drug store, convenience store, and the big box stores. And there’re lots of them. Multivitamins, single nutrients, fiber, minerals, fatty acids, antioxidants, extracts, weight loss aids—even energy drinks and protein powders are classified as dietary supplements.

So how do you know which ones to buy?

It’s not easy. Although supplements are regulated to some point by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, it’s up to the supplement manufacturers to supply safe products. The FDA mostly steps in after a problem’s been identified.

Be a smart shopper. Here are our top five tips for choosing dietary supplements.

1. Know Why (or If) You Need Them
Dietary supplements are best used to ensure you’re getting an adequate intake of specific nutrients—some multiple vitamins that will do the job nicely. But there are times when specific supplements are used to help treat specific health issues, like taking calcium and vitamin D for osteoporosis or iron for anemia. In cases like this, your health care provider has probably already explained how much you should take and maybe offered suggests about particular brands.

If you think you might have health reasons to take specific supplements, you need to speak with your health care provider. Don’t diagnose yourself.

And finally, if your goal for taking supplements is to prevent illness, then you might want to reconsider your plan—research studies don’t usually find supplements to be helpful in this way. They probably don’t hurt either, but the foods you eat (or don’t eat) probably have a bigger impact on your health risks. Find out more from these steel bite pro reviews.

Brush Up on Your Label Reading Skills
Labels are designed to catch your eye so you’ll buy the product. And although supplement manufacturers have to follow specific rules about health claims, you might find yourself looking at a product that says it can do more than it can.

Don’t believe it—when it comes to supplements and health claims, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. At best you’ll waste your money, and at worst you’ll end up with something dangerous.

Look past the claims on the front of the label and review the supplement facts chart and ingredients—that will give you an idea of what’s in the bottle and how much to take. You should also find the name and contact information for the manufacturer.

Read about whether it’s safe to take expired vitamins.

3. Avoid Mega Doses and Extra Ingredients
So let’s say you want to buy a bottle of vitamin C. You go to the store, and you see one bottle of vitamin C; another bottle of vitamin C with immune-supporting herbs; and a bottle of vitamin C with this, that, and some other thing. Are the additional things helpful? Find out more about healthy supplements at https://sparkhealthmd.com/meticore-reviews/3185/.

Those extra ingredients may seem like a good idea, but the more ingredients, the higher the likelihood of having some unwanted side effect. Start with just the vitamin or mineral you’re interested in taking. Don’t buy more than you need.

Follow the dosage instructions on the label. Although dietary supplements are generally safe, taking too much can be bad for you.-

4. Choose a Respected Brand
You know there are some brands of vitamins you’ve seen for years—they’ve been around for a long time, so they probably offer a decent product. If you’re shopping at a drug store or a health food store, you should be able to ask someone for advice. But if you’re going to the grocery store or the big box store, you’re on your own.-

In that case, look for products that have been certified by ConsumerLabs, The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention, or NSF International. These organizations don’t guarantee a product is safe or effective, but they indicate that it’s undergone testing for quality.

5. Evaluate the Site When Buying Online
Searching the web for supplements will turn up all kinds of websites, from official supplement company sites to cut-rate cheapo sites, to websites that sell products that are worthless or worse. Don’t fall for products that promise cures for diseases, extreme weight loss, or impressive sexual prowess.

Look for sites that offer current, sound information (with references) and include easy access to contact information.

Finally, speak to your health care provider before you take any supplements if:

You’re pregnant or breastfeeding
You’re going to have surgery
You have any health conditions
You’re taking any prescription medications
