It’s safe to say that as Nutritional Therapy Practitioners, we get asked about vitamins, minerals and other supplements- All. The. Time. So, we figured you’re probably just as curious!
Are supplements really necessary for good health? What should I look out for? How do I chose the best option? These are all questions we answer on today’s Colorful Eats podcast episode plus we share our take on the popularity of supplements and how we use them in our own nutrition practices. And since you probably also have questions about specific health issues or phases of life (like preconception and pregnancy), we’ve got your back and we’re sharing some of our top supplement specific recommendations.
