Pretty much knew everything on the video. I take many supplements, but have researched every one of them from multiple sources. I also take into account what my physical needs are and if it is indicated I need them. I only introduce them one at a time to see what there effect is on me--and I have stopped taking any where I noticed ill effects.
If you are not willing to do the research and pay attention to your body, then you probably should not take supplements other than a mulit-vitamin. It can be dangerous if you start willy-nilly taking every "hot" supplement on the market.
I'm a strong believer in vitamins. I'm now 71 years old, never had surgery and in good health plus don't look my age. When someone asks me how I did it, my reply is vitamins and exercise. Don't let anyone talk you out of it.
Course, I'm fortunate because I bought Earl Mindell's book Vitamin Bible decades ago and learned about supplements. What is scary is that some in Congress, paying attention to lobbyists, want to make supplements available by prescription only.
I work in a doctor's office and have to update the medications and supplements that our patients take. It is astonishing to see the # of supplements that some people take on a daily basis! My plan is to eat healthy, drink plenty of water, get enough exercise and sleep and let my body take care of the rest. I think lots of our patients are substituting supplements for actual nutrition!
