Episode #18: Your Questions Answered: Supplements

Listen to the episode:



Today’s conversation was a follow up to last week’s discussion with Richard Bloomer, about supplements. We were flooded with questions about supplements, and thought it appropriate to devote this week’s podcast to responding to some of those.

We had great questions from our audience and while we couldn’t answer all of them, I did try to cover those that seem to come up frequently. 

In the episode we talk about the lack of FDA regulation of supplements and the pro’s and con’s of that.  We talk about the quality of ingredients and understanding why supplements can even be considered drugs in some cases.

We address some of the important supplements that should be considered as a foundational starting point and others that you should consider adding to the mix.  We also talk about the increasing popularity of personal nutritional formulations and why that may be something worthwhile for you to consider.

Take a listen, I am sure you will find some answers to questions you may have about supplements!
