Thanks for the information
Great info! Thanks!
Great article..I am taken vitamin B12 at the advice of my Doctor. I am not allowed to take any meds over counter because of my kidney failure.
Thanks! This is why the nutrition tracker here at SP is so excellent of a tool--track, and supplement only when needed.
I think I might need a little bit of supplements but need to study on it more
I tried supplements for awhile, but I found they made me feel bad. Why do that? I think I can control my vitamins & minerals so much easier with my intake.
Anecdotal evidence is meaningless; your supplement probably "works" for you because you believe it does.
Having said that, since I started tracking everything on SP, I saw that I am deficient in iron and potassium. The potassium has alleviated my issues with water-weight gain due to the normal monthly stuff, and also recurring ovarian cysts.
And can we ban the Shaklee pyramid-schemers from this site, please???
"...Since it is natural you won't expect any harsh side effects." As a professional chemist, let me remind all readers that arsenic, mercury and lead are also completely "natural." The word "natural" is not a guarantee of safety.
I could not agree more. Continuous exercise and proper diet can help lose weight safely.
Supplements are not bad at all but then we need proper education and information on a particular supplement first before we even try it.
I do not know if anyone tried Bella Amp'd but it is one of the good diet pills stuff out there. At least based from my experience. But before I tried that or any kind of pills, I try to find more about the product first, especially its side effects.
So far the insane amp'd diet pills side effects are not that of a big deal. Since it is natural, you won't expect any harsh side effects. I guess, it pays to look for what's included in the pill before taking it.
I was always told, "Let food be thy medicine" Healthy nutritious foods can heal and improve your body overall.
I havent' taken any since I was a kid.
I am not an expert at all. I took vitamins and mineral supplements as I need them without advice from doctors and nurses. I took potassium due to low amount in my blood test. Thank SP nutrition tracker for helping me to see how much all vitamins and minerals I ate my meals. With the kind of help, I had cut down on certain vitamins like not taking vitamin C pills or potassium if the food have good source of whatever it have. I am doing good for few days with my diet plan and trying to get in good shape on fitness.
