Supplements are a BIG business. According to webmd.com the total sales of the U.S. dietary supplement industry in 2016 were 22.1 billion $. That is huge and means that there are a lot of people using supplements. The attraction of using supplements is strong: the ads promise more energy and vitality after taking certain vitamins/minerals. So you might think: why shouldn't I try that vitamin or that brand? What's the harm? But there really can be harm in jumping in to the world of supplements and especially if you don't know anything about the business, it is easy to over-do it.. Truth to be told I use supplements and why not? But I think that nowadays there is a fine line between over-doing it and doing it "the right way". Thus, who can say when and how much to use them? Because this blog is about my opinions on healthy issues, I will write on my perspective. But that doesn't mean I haven't done my research and this case I have done.
