Vitamins, supplements, herbs and minerals; the drug store is adding
more and more bottles of these products every day. Are there
certain ones that are more important or necessary to take?
I found myself asking that very question more and more as I started
getting older. On any given night I would see commercial
after commercial for some kind of pill or supplement to fix whatever
ails me. I can look younger, weigh less, and feel better about myself

I decided to find out for myself what my body really needs and then see
if I could find something that fit the bill and did it safely.

These are still important, but research has found a large number of
other supplements that can benefit people and help increase their

that I discovered
is that most foods we buy at the store are pretty heavily processed.
Lots of the natural vitamins and minerals have been
lost when they produced the food.
Some companies try to put vitamins
back in, but they are man made and not as good as the original
food that nature produced.
The reason this is a problem is

nutrition they need.
a big guy and I eat quite a bit but I found out I didn't get all the
essential nutrients I needed everyday. I did get plenty of
sugars but that's another webpage for another day!! (Going
to the drive thru window definitely doesn't do much to help.)
looked at a list
of vitamins and minerals from Wikipedia. I found out
that the human body requires a large number of different vitamins and
nutrients to maintain
its overall health.
on what I see on the TV commercials and on the shelves at the drug
store, many companies have recognized this fact and have
developed extensive varieties of vitamins and supplements to fill the
gap created by our modern way of living.

the time and effort to regulate itself and make all natural vitamins

that are as close to nature as possible. They conduct the
research necessary along with clinical trials to make sure the vitamins

thing that really convinced me that this was a company that was the
right one for me is a landmark nutritional supplement study done by the
California at Berkeley.
natural vitamins helps but just taking any vitamin is not
enough. The way the
vitamin is made, what is included in the "pill", and how well it will
be absorbed and used by our bodies are very critical questions to
ask before you run to the store and make a purchase.
