Do I really need to take a nutritional supplement?
We may think we’re eating a balanced diet, however the reality is that most of us struggle to achieve the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for key vitamins and minerals. A quality supplement can help to bridge this gap.
Most of us are aware of the importance of diet in maintaining a healthy body and mind. I generally eat well (I should, I am a nutritional therapist after all), and food is definitely my thing. As I write this, I have just finished a delicious chicken, lentil and vegetable soup with a couple of oatcakes and a little houmus for lunch. I’m planning on creating an equally tasty salmon supper later on.
As well as being mindful of what I eat every day, I also take a high strength multivitamin and mineral supplement – a 1000mg Fish oil capsule and 1000mg of vitamin C daily. I see these supplements as my daily insurance policy. If my dietary intake of nutrients does fall short then I know that I have a backup plan in place.
