Why You Should NOT Take Vitamins

Can you tell me why you should not take vitamins?
All I hear is contradictory stories about why it is good and bad for you. There are people who waste $200 or more a
month on useless supplements. By stopping the supplements, they save a lot of money. And yet doctors prescribe prenatal vitamins
to every pregnant woman who walks in the door. In the case of pregnancy, women need more
iron and B vitamins but rarely get enough. The leafy green vegetables and red meat that
are good sources are exactly what gives many of them severe morning sickness. What about the rest of us? If you are eating a balanced diet, you don’t
need a multivitamin. If you aren’t sure, drink an Ensure or other meal replacement
drink. How long have they been saying vitamins are
useless? Guys who pump out porta-potties often remark
about all the pebbles at the bottom that used to be multivitamins. Some doctors still say we need to take vitamins. Unfortunately, some doctors make money selling
supplements to their patients. A few unscrupulous ones make money selling supplements that patients
can’t afford. Is it really that much money? Vitamins generate tens of billions in sales. Are all vitamins a waste? Vitamin D supplements aren’t a waste if
you don’t get enough sunlight or drink a lot of milk to get it. I’ve heard that supplements can have negative
side effects. So can medications. But there are too many
people who take vitamins hoping to reverse chronic conditions, not realizing that it
can’t do anything other than cure malnutrition. Vegetarians take pounds of supplements. Except for B12, which vegans can’t get unless
they eat animal products like milk, vegetarians and vegans don’t have to take supplements. All of which is cured by a glass of milk or
enriched almond milk.

  1. If you say that taking vitamins from supplement is worthless, you must be giving a misinformed remarks.

    Its easy to said that we can get the vitamins and minerals we greatly need from our diet but the real question is do we really eat in daily habits this foods that give us the complete and balance nutrients we need to combat oxidative stress and give us optimal health?
