Do Dietary Supplements Work?
The answer is yes, of course, they do! The results are undeniable if we look at people who understand how they work and know how to use them. Although, Christine admits that there’s also a lot of nonsense going around in the dietary supplements industry. It’s common, and a lot are not reaping the benefits they need from it. This is due to good marketing. As somewhat of a tip, in the episode, Christine clarifies one idea that can help us move away from all the non-sense in the business of diet. When taking dietary supplements, it’s essential to understand that dietary supplements allow you to get the nutrients you need that are otherwise hard to receive from whole foods or from whatever is only available to you. Knowing this helps us make more informed decisions regarding what we need and do not need when it comes to the food and dietary supplements we take.
