Vitamin and mineral supplements
provide the body with the needed nutrients
in order to nourish, protect and make it healthy and strong.
But taking it on a daily basis may not be that ideal for anyone
especially when one is not doing anything at all
like staying the whole day at home and not doing anything strenuous.
Supplements should only be taken
when there is an extra work to be done than normal,
like when one joins some marathon around town
or involves in some physical activities
that is not part of his usual routine.
That's the ideal time to take the much-needed supplement
to sustain the said activities.
From meals or snacks alone,
there are already nutrients abounding,
so when taking additional vitamins and minerals,
one could end up consuming so much more vitamins and minerals
of what is considered normal in a day.
Anything taken too much is certainly bad for anyone.
And taking too much vitamins
and minerals in a day is no different besides wasting some money.
The body will be overwhelmed by the abundance of nutrients
that those that are not absorbed
will just be flushed out of the system,
and that's a whole lot of wasted supplements.
And there will be a good chance
the body will depend on them already
and not able to extract nutrients from the food
one eats during meals or snacks.
A lot of the supplements on the market today
are created in some laboratories
and not really extracted from natural sources such as plants or fruits.
Although their manufacturing process
involved a lot of research and studies,
they are still synthetic or artificially made.
those laboratories still can't match or equal
the natural potency of the vitamins and minerals and other nutrients
found in plants or fruits.
From that alone, we clearly understand
that they are not ideal for our bodies.
They may work like natural vitamins,
but they are considered not as good.
But in the future,
we can only hope that those supplements
will work like those natural nutrients and even will be more potent.
That's a big possibility.
