    Supplements

    What are your thoughts on health supplements?
    I have brought health isagenix weight loss supplements and I thought they were fanatic with helping me cleanse my body.

    I use a health supplement from Holland & Barrett. I think that is the best shop for supplements. I am not plugging the shop, but I definitely use that shop myself.

    Health supplements do work and I'd advise anyone use them for any medical conditions. Sometimes natural treatments can be equally effective as chemicals in medications. For instance, peppermint oil helps the bowel. Evening Primrose Oil helps with PMS. The list goes on. I would advise anyone check their local chemist or even look online to see which supplements will help.

      Hey. Very interesting topic in our time. People tell me that one or more dietary supplements cured or prevented their ailment or suggested that I try to cope with the problem myself. And I'm not immune from making wishful thinking that an over-the-counter vitamin, mineral or herb can help me maintain health or alleviate suffering without contacting a doctor.
      I succumbed to several popular suggestions, including melatonin and magnesium, to improve my sleep, glucosamine-chondroitin, to resist arthritic pain and fish oil to protect my brain and heart. I take them, even knowing that irrefutable, scientifically proven evidence of such benefits is lacking, and I can pay heavily for the placebo effect.
      This does not mean that people who are believed to lack a particular nutrient should refrain from taking the medication recommended in medicine. For example, now that doctors regularly test vitamin D levels, especially in the elderly, almost everyone I know, including myself, takes 1000 international units or more of this nutrient every day, especially to maintain bone health. Without enough vitamin D, the body does not absorb enough calcium and phosphorus from the diet to maintain strong bones. However, it has not yet been proven that vitamin D supplements prevent fractures.
      Good luck to all.

        You're right with your information, Loric2014. There can be the placebo effect. But I believe most supplements do work. Of course, a person still has to be realistic about what supplements can achieve. But this is true for even medications prescribed by the doctor.

        Anyhow, a good post, Loric2014.
