3 Mistakes To Avoid When Buying Supplements

Are you taking any supplements right now? Chances are, you and most people you know are taking a least one supplement every day. The supplement industry is booming at an all time high, banking over $32 billion in revenue last year. But at the same time, America’s health has hit an all-time low where disease diagnosis is sky-rocketing and medical bills are the #1 cause of bankruptcy.

It’s an interesting paradigm here. People are spending more money on their health, but we’re just getting sicker. That just doesn’t make any sense, does it?

Well, a big part of the reason is that our society is led to believe that they can pill their way to a healthier, better life. Be it a pharmaceutical drug, or a fancy pants new supplement. We’ve been indoctrinated with the idea that, “You don’t have to worry about eating all of that (insert fruits, vegetables, protein, and natural foods) because you’re taking all of this (insert random list of supplements and “multi-vitamins”).

You see, we seem to think that because we’re taking a few supplements we’ve got our nutritional needs handled. “Hey, this multi-vitamin has forty billion percent of your daily requirement for Vitamin B!”

More like Vitamin BS.
