Always talk to your doctor before adding a vitamin or mineral supplement to your routine. If you’ve been taking supplements instead of eating fruits, vegetables, and other nutrient-rich foods, it’s time to rethink your strategy. Remember, there’s no substitute for a healthy diet.

Are you taking supplements? Have you asked yourself why? Is your answer, “because everyone’s taking them”!! That’s just stupid and a waste of money. The only way to know for sure exactly what your body is lacking is to do a micronutrient test at the cellular level. This can be done at Main Line Integrative Nutrition. Let the experts test you at your cellular level and tell you exactly what you should be taking, or NOT taking!! Some of the supplements your taking that you “think” are making you feel better, could be making you feel worse.
If you suspect that you aren’t getting the nutrients you need, consider shifting your focus from supplements to eating better. According to the Mayo Clinic, nutrient-rich whole foods — such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains — provide many benefits over dietary supplements:
- Whole foods contain multiple micronutrients that may work together to provide more perks than they would alone.
- Many whole foods are rich sources of dietary fiber. A diet rich in fiber can help lower your risk of many health conditions, including heart disease.
- Many whole foods also contain phytochemicals. These substances may help protect you against heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other health conditions.
