Do Vitamin Supplements Really Work?


Follow us over to It’s OK To Be Smart to find out about the weird science behind the placebo effect:

This week Reactions is taking a look at the science and chemistry, or lack thereof, behind supplements. You’ve seen them in late night commercials and at your local pharmacy—little pills that claim to cure your cold, help you wake up or maybe help you lose weight.

My Vitamins & Supplements Routine | Anti-Aging and Overall Health


I am excited to partner with The Reserve (formerly known as The Matcha Reserve) on this video! Use this link for 30% off your order. Also, 10% of all purchases will be donated to The Hunger Project!

This video was highly requested and hopefully, it gives you more knowledge and sheds light on which vitamins i take and why. Please remember that vitamins and supplements are there to fill in the gap but nothing will supplement a bad diet! Also when reading studies online please make sure to check the source and other details (length of studies, amount of the supplement used, people who were the study group) I find there are a lot of information that is presented in a wrong way and makes people confused. I also answered a few of the questions you asked me over Instagram.
