Decisions Among Vitamins and Supplements
Posted Thursday, September 25, 2008

Dr. Tori Hudson has a nice blog up this week with info about what to look for when buying your multivitamins and supplements. Dr. Hudson outlines the principle variants to be aware of when purchasing your vitamins and supplements: ingredients, potency, quality, and manufacturing process.

It can be surprising how much difference there is between similarly marketed products, but this article runs down some simple ways to weed out the pack. How many ingredients should my supplement have? What is the serving size to get the necessary amount of nutrition? Can bulkier, cheaper supplements actually work better for me? What can the manufacturing process tell us about potency? Synthetic supplements? Mixed carotenoids? She carries off all these with ease.

All in all, a very well done health blog with a bunch of interesting posts. Check the site out right here.
