I have to quite disagree w/ a couple of previous posters: "If your diet is good, you do not need supplements." -- If food in fact was grown in your own garden and you actually know what is in it, maybe. If you buy from the general grocery store, assume that food does not contain adequate nutrition due in part to changes in quality of soil that most food is grown in--not to mention distance traveled, and time since harvested.
And NO I'm not promoted the above named supplements. I do agree that raspberry ketones are much to-do about nothing.
I do not know enough about cla to speak for that one, one way or the other...
I recommend careful research as to the what and why of something vs. what a sale-type person recommends.
IMO, in terms of the medical establishment, there is still far too little knowledge on the topic of nutrition for a typical MD to be a reasonable resource on this topic. Most have had 1 quarter of instruction on nutrition (at most) in all their medical training. So many do not seem to see a connection between many illnesses and the stunning lack of nutrition in the typical S.A.D. (standard American diet).
