1 Do not self diagnose – taking supplements that your body does not need can cause more harm than good.
2 Before introducing new supplements to your routine be sure to speak with your healthcare professional, especially important if you are taking prescribed medications
3 Take a high quality multi-vitamin/mineral supplement; you really do get what you pay for, not all supplements are good quality. Choose a whole foods, good quality vitamin without binders, fillers or other additives.
4 Take your supplements with food and water unless instructed to do otherwise,
5 Supplements cannot take the place of a nutrient dense diet. Ensure you are getting adequate protein, whole grains, lots of colourful fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats every day.
