Still looking for that magic pill? I think I told you that it doesn't exist in a prior post. But you're still curious about what vitamins or additional supplements might help you maximize your health and fitness. Supplementation is a multibillion dollar industry with a lot of associated myth, folklore, intrigue, allure and magic mixed with occasional fact.
The first thing you should know is that if you're eating a balanced, healthy diet you shouldn't have need of much if any supplementation. That being said, there are those of us veggie haters that probably aren't getting enough of the good stuff from our food that we think perhaps a pill can make up for it.
Again admitting that I'm not an expert, here's a good basic list of supplements you should consider:
That's a good start!
You can also look into other common supplements:
There are many, many other supplements that can have positive benefits to your health, but you need to read up and be informed. You don't want to just go taking a bunch of extra supplements in the hopes that something will help you get more healthy. Before looking to pills, first and foremost you need to eat healthy and exercise. Then consider taking a good, small stack of vitamins like the first list I suggested. After that if you want to be adventurous and branch out, look into the others I suggested as well as many others that are out there. Consult your doctor, and don't overdo it.
A couple of sites I like to learn more about supplements are WebMD.com and Examine.com.
A great place to buy supplements is Amazon.com, and there are plenty of reviews to pour through.
