If you could live a longer, healthier life by taking a small pill each day, you'd do it wouldn't you? You’d be crazy not to!
With this fact in mind, the incredible growth of dietary supplements makes sense.
This extreme interest in health and nutrition is, unfortunately, fuelled by false advertising. The Internet, television, and product labels make claims not backed by science, fooling millions and reaping a sizable paycheck.
In your quest for health, don't be fooled by these three myths surrounding the use of nutritional supplements.
Myth #1: “More Is Better”
If vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and herbs are good for you and available over the counter, they must be safe to take in high doses, right?
Science has proven otherwise. You feel a cold coming on so you pop the vitamin C pills and lozenges to ward it off, but too much of certain vitamins and minerals can be dangerous.
