Vitamins and minerals are co-factors in many processes in the body including building, maintaining and cleansing. The goal is always to get nutrients from food first. While supplementation does NOT replace a good diet, it may be necessary for reasons including nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle, age, illness and certain health conditions.
When choosing supplements, remember quality matters. Go for a good quality practitioner grade product. Check with your health practitioner first to ensure you are getting the best supplements to meet your specific health needs.
