“Do you eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every single day? Well, most people in this country do not. That being said you don’t even know where the fruit or vegetable was grown, so you don’t know about the soil that it was grown in, you don’t know how long it’s been on the truck, how long it’s been in the store and by the time you get it home, how much of the vitamins and minerals are even left in it?
So the way I look at a supplement is it’s an insurance policy. Now everyone has car insurance but no one plans to crash their car. In terms of supplementation you have to figure out that if an athlete is working out more and maybe eating less food than they need because they have to decrease body fat. When you work out more your needs go up, because you’re working out harder and you’re trying to lose body fat, trying to build muscle, what have you. So as the needs go up you want to make sure you’re getting all the nutrients your body needs without the extra calories.
A lot of people feel that if they’re taking a multi-vitamin or a supplement of any kind then they don’t need to eat their fruits and vegetables, that they’re good. And I disagree, there’s a lot of things in the fruits and vegetables that we don’t even know about yet. So food is always first. Supplements are there just to help out with any kind of deficiencies and in this country you don’t have to worry about deficiencies. It’s not really about living, it’s about optimizing your performance and that’s really what the supplements can help you do.

It’s finally HERE!! My Vitamin & Supplement Routine 😀 You guys ask me almost daily on Instagram what vitamins I take so I wanted to do an in-depth video explaining all the products and my thoughts on the role vitamins play in ones health. Everyone has different views on it but I wanted to share mine and how I use them to help with stress and anxiety.
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. Vitamin and mineral supplements are everywhere and generate billions of dollars in revenue in the U.S. each year. But do they really work?

Support Us on Patreon :
If you fall sick very often or frequently suffer from flu, sore throat and skin infections, it’s possible your body needs vitamins to boost the immune system. The best way to increase your vitamin intake is by having a healthy and balanced diet, but sometimes our bodies need an extra boost.
Most of the time, the immune system does its job to keep us healthy. However if the system sometimes fails to defend us, it can result in illness, infection, or diseases. This is where the body needs reinforcements in the form of vitamins and other immune-boosting nutrients.
In this video we will look at the Top 5 important vitamins that you need to include in your diet to boost your immune system and fight off infections.
– How to boost immunity naturally.
Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid is an essential micronutrient for humans. one of the most widely consumed dietary supplements in the world. It is a potent anti-oxidant and a co-factor for many enzymes in our body. Vitamin C holds a reputation as an immune system booster. As an antioxidant, vitamin C fights free radicals in the body which helps prevent many cancers and heart disease, and promotes healthy aging.
Anti-science mentality is prevalent in modern society. This is evidenced most clearly in a complete distrust of chemicals synthesized in a laboratory. But does the activity of a molecule depend whatsoever on the pathway from which it formed? Let’s see why not.

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.
