Vitamin Insight News
It seems like every week, there's a study in the news that makes a bold new claim about vitamins. One research group will announce that they just completed a study that proves supplement X is good for you, but then only months later a second study will refute the findings of the first study. It's almost impossible to keep up with what's good for your body and what isn't!
Don't get bogged down in the small details of scientific studies. Average people don't need to worry about the efficacy of every supplement that's on the market. What matters is this – we know for sure that vitamins are good for your health. All humans need vitamins in order to stay alive. The more important question is how much of each vitamin we need.
Pay attention to news about how many vitamin supplements you should be taking (and how much of each is recommended). Don't waste your time following news stories about the latest fad in the world of vitamins. Vitamin fads are exactly what you would think – fleeting infatuations with a particular supplement that never last. Don't run out to the store and buy the newest thing. Instead, wait it out. If people are still raving about that supplement after several months or a year, then you'll know it's the real deal.
And, of course, always pay close attention to news about product recalls. Occasionally, a tainted product is released to the public. If you find out that a supplement you purchased has been recalled, dispose of it immediately.
Reputable News Sources
Be sure to get your vitamin and supplement news from a reputable source. Newspapers are almost always trustworthy, as are the high-profile television news networks (like CNN). The things you read on Internet sites (even the one you're reading now) should always be taken with a grain of salt. It's great to research supplements online, but always be sure to think critically about what you're reading.
Ask yourself this: would the person who wrote this news article benefit if I buy the product he or she is writing about? If so, then the news is biased and you should find another source.
