Were You Sold Snake Oil?

August 19, 2020

Many people have made taking supplements part of their daily routine, and most people understand the importance of taking certain supplements to help fill in nutritional gaps they may have, even with a balanced diet. However, many people are unaware of the differences in the quality of supplements. Not all fish oils or multivitamins are created equal, and some can do more harm than good. In this week’s episode, we discuss some of the differences in professional-grade supplements versus the ones commonly found in grocery stores, including how certain forms of vitamins and minerals are more absorbable, and we’ll help you determine if you were sold snake oil.
