Supplements ... Harmful or Healthy? What you MUST know!
The global supplement market is expected to reach $60 billion by 2020.
This is a doubling from 2010.
Here’s some other interesting statistics:
> Over one-third of women use calcium for bolstering bone health.
> 50% of Americans take vitamins regularly.
Some of this is BLIND BELIEF, yet there is EVIDENCE that many vitamin/mineral supplements are not properly absorbed by the body, so the value of the supplement is reduced or lost.
Your goal should be to make sure your supplements provide the nutritional value you are paying for. This is not an easy question to answer, for all supplements are not created equal.
The mere ingestion of vitamins and minerals is not enough.
The body must recognize and absorb the nutrients.
For instance, when plants absorb nutrients from soil, the vitamins and minerals are naturally integrated into the plant. This allows your body to naturally absorb the ingredients. Without this, many minerals and nutrients are not properly absorbed and, in fact, create a build-up of unabsorbed material in the intestinal tract creating FREE RADICALS.

Testing of herbal supplements sold by major retailers including Target and Walmart revealed that 79 percent have NO TRACE of the HERBS on the products' labels, according to an investigation by the New York State Attorney General.
Not only are consumers being duped, he said, but it is also dangerous to use supplements when they contain ingredients that aren't on the label.

In the final analysis, supplement usage is increasing, and everyone should consider it as food supplies are processed and altered – no longer delivering the nutrition they once did.
But, make sure your supplements are working to give you the benefit you need and not just passing through your body, not being properly absorbed. Seek supplements that are proven to be effective and body-friendly.
